I recently started watching Sofia the First and it has become my number one Mood Booster
. Seriously, if you could bottle all the happiness that I get from this show and sell it, no one would ever be depressed. It is the nicest, sweetest most positive show I have seen since MLP:FiM Season One. Just, it’s so… uplifting? Sofia is my new hero.
Cosplay update! I know it isn’t munday yet but I decided to modify my Sofia dress to look like her new one, now that Season Four has started airing and Season Three is on Netflix. It was just really important to me to reflect how Sofia has changed now that Elena is out of her amulet, and the new dress really helps! Last time I wore the dress without the pink, I got some questions about Elena, which told me that the kids actually are current with the series and will recognize who I’m supposed to be even if I change the dress, so I just took the plunge!
I took this for a test run at a small event yesterday called Halfway to Halloween and so many people seemed shocked and delighted to see a Sofia? I kept getting so many remarks like “we’ve never seen this” “omg a Sofia,” and so many grown men kept saying things like “Geez she’s so adorable,” which makes me wonder how many men watch StF and just don’t get the chance to talk about it until something like this happens. An older woman leaned out of her car window to tell me I looked so cute and I just thought “This is why Sofia never has any enemies, she charms everyone with her cuteness.” But children are a much more scrutinizing bunch than adults, so the real test for the new dress will be next weekend– we’ll see what the kids think! If anyone is going to Alamo City Comic Con don’t be a stranger! Just gotta sew on about a thousand more pearls in a week…)
