N7 Armour (Mass Effect 3) by ladysnip3r featuring silver bangles

This outfit is inspired by the infamous N7 Armour from the Mass Effect series. I chose to pair leggings with a dark tunic to imitate the armour’s dark palette. I also chose a dark red bag and red earrings to replicate the armour’s accents. The earring’s long shape also imitates the armour’s back lights. (Reference Image)

MOODBOARD: TOMB RAIDER

I’ve been playing my way through the Tomb Raider reboot on PS3 and am pretty much in love. Adventure stories are my favorite genre, and the rebooted Lara—an amateur researcher trying to take on the world—is surprisingly relatable for me. I put together this mood board with some items that reminded me of Tomb Raider—and might give me a spark of courage on the days I need it.

I started dressing outfits inspired by things I liked since high school and I always just called them my inspired outfits. Ever since I found Console To Closet and Disneybound on Tumblr, I really glad I found a community of people who also dress with the way I think, so thank you.

I wasn’t able to get a picture of today’s outfit for #C2C30 , but I do have pictures from previously when I wore it. Tah dah!

Day 1: Assassin’s Creed theme

Dante (Devil May Cry 4) by ladysnip3r 

Nelly - Rock’n Blue Jacket, $340/ Farfetch - Cheap Monday Skinny Jeans, $74/ Nasty Gal - Voltage Platform Bootie, $58/ Republic - Crafted Leather Satchel Bag, $50/ Wet Seal - Pointelle Beret, $9

This outfit is inspired by Dante from Devil May Cry 4. I wanted to replicate his signature jacket, but with a fashionable twist, so I went with a red leather motocycle jacket. I chose black pants and a grey tank top. I also found really cool wedge shoes that are black with red heels. I wanted to add some buckle details to the outfit so I decided a black bag. Lastly, I wanted to replicate his white hair so I went with a white beanie.

I'm about to have a bit of an emotional rant on here, so bear with me. You are one of the most amazing cosplayers in the world and above that, you are absolutely a fantastic person. When I was getting heat with my costume for Gears, you were right there offering me support and encouragement - It's people like you that keep our hobby/community going. Your new costumes looked amazing and, in my opinion, were so creative and executed beautifully. Stay strong and remember that you’ve got quite a f

Oh no, the message cut off!! D:

Still, shit, Amanda. Thank you. I remember how people were shitting on your Gears costume and it still frustrates the hell out of me. People just like to hate Nice Things, I guess. Nice Things and Nice People.

Thank you so much for supporting me, and for that … shit, exceedingly kind message <33333 I’m having enormous Feels, and yet they’re incredibly Zen Happy Feels so I’m not flailing so much as I am just smiling and feeling proud of myself and the fact that you call me a friend. Do I have a gif for this? I don’t think I have a gif for this. Not at work, anyway!

(wait I have an Ezio Leo hugging gif for this at home, fffff)

Midna (Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess) by ladysnip3r featuring high heel sandals

This outfit is inspired by Midna from Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. I wanted to do a sort of art deco-styled look, really focusing on the patterns on her headpiece. I chose a teal and black dress with a retro print, paired with polka dot tights and bright yellow shoes. I also chose a black flower hair clip and black accessories to compliment the outfit.

Edi (Mass Effect 3) by ladysnip3r 

Chiara - Black Mesh Insert Sleeveless Dress, $21/ Miss Selfridge - Grey Drape Blazer, $71/ Too Fast - One Leg Double Stripe Over the Knee Tights, $14/ Guess - Jacoba Platforms, $99/ Yoox - Nannini Handbag, $80/ Nordstrom - DKNY Park Avenue Pebble Crystal Watch, $155/ Swarovski - Bella Light Saphire Earrings, $77

This outfit is inspired by Edi from the Mass Effect series. I wanted to do something more based on her humanoid outfit, but with elements of her orb days. I chose a sexy cutout black dress paired with a beautiful blazer. Together, they give off a very sci-fi futuristic look. I chose asymmetrical tights for a little sci-fi quirkiness and classic black pumps. Lastly, I chose blue earrings that are reminiscent of her orb self. This outfit is obviously a little too sexy for everyday wear, but would look great for a night on the town.

Gyarados (Pokèmon) by ladysnip3r featuring a chain belt

This outfit is inspired by my personal favorite Pokèmon, Gyarados. I’m going to give you three reasons why Gyarados is the best Pokèmon ever:
1. It’s from a lovely little place named Lake of Rage! Arrrggghhh
2. It’s a flying fish. That’s awesome.
3. It’s a water type that can learn fire and electric moves. Total surprise attack.
 
Now that Gyarados is your favorite Pokèmon too, you’ll really want to wear this outfit inspired by the dragon. I found a gorgeous dress that reminded me of the different shades of blue and spikes that cover Gyarados. I added a black belt to contrast against the print. I also chose a cardigan that’s the same color as Gyarados’ belly. I wanted to bring a little ocean influence to the outfit, so I found a starfish ring and bubble necklace. The violet earrings look amazing with the dress and are the same color as Gyarados’ eyes. (Reference Image)

I chose brown leopard print shorts with black tights and brown knee high boots. I also chose a huge, comfy grey sweater and a brown hobo bag. I wanted the accessories to really bring to life the tribal look of the armor, choosing stylish accessories that had feathers and teeth on them. (Reference Image)

I also chose black boots which can be worn under or over the jeans. Lastly, I found dark leather accessories to compliment the outfit and add depth. (Reference Image)
