“Let’s save the pitiful children”

Costested my own design of The Squip from Be More Chill
Might bring him to Jafax
I haven’t cosplayed in so long nor have I posted any cosplay stuff in a while so here ya go ♡

From your local cosplayer/con photographer; TELL PARENTS THERE WITH THEIR KIDS AT CON/FRIEND’S KIDS/ETC. THAT IT IS SO WONDERFUL TO SEE COSPLAY SUPPORTIVE PARENTS AND ASK FOR THEIR PERMISSION WHEN TAKING PHOTOS OF THEIR CHILDREN SINCE THEY ARE MINORS.

That shit goes a DAMN long way for the cosplaying children because the parents/guardians now get an indication that this is a safe and welcoming environment for their children to be in and that there are nice people at these cons that want to make sure both they and their children are happy and comfortable.

TRUST ME. Vocalize it. You may sound like a broken record, the kid might be all “ughhh” in the moment because they might not know what it means, but TELL THE PARENTS. It impacts so so so much.

Here are some pictures of Miss Lane’s Cinderella dress I finished recently.  I started off with a curtain I found at Goodwill for 2.99. I dyed it blue (it started out a seafoam green), and used some random scraps of matte white satin and netting from an old prom dress to create the skirt poufs and sleeves along with the crinoline for under the dress. I also made her a small two hoop skirt to help hold the dress out. :)  She loves wearing it, and it is so magical seeing her wearing it around Disney World. :)

So here we go… This is my “unHOLY SHIT!” project. Well, Part I, anyways ;D

So - first off, this is my costume of Papa Emeritus III. Made from the EXACT SAME MATERIALS as the real deal! The only things that aren’t exact is the gold fabric on the mitre, the frilly stuff on the white part of the mitre, and the purple lining.

It’s a complete blast to wear - I had my first outing in it last night at the Kansas City, September 30th ritual. Did meet and greet again… and holy shit, Papa and the Ghouls were wide-eyed and speechless again! The crew and merch people loved it, the blond british gal who works the merch table went BONKERS over the costume! “Oh, I really dig your costume!… Wait… Where did you get that fabric?? How the- how the hell did you know those details!!! Holy shit!” she proceeded to take photos of me, took close-ups, and said “I’m showing this to Papa, nice work!”

So after spending an hour or so stuck in the same place as everyone wants a photo (not complaining mind you, it was an awesome experience) it was time for the meet and greet. The guy who sends you in looked at me, leaned back and yelled to Papa “Oh, you’re gonna LOVE this guy!”

I met Papa at the bus after the ritual, what a hottie holy sHIT, and he signed my Papa dollar and looked me over and said “Nice work! I dig it. Keep it up.” JDFKLAJDFKL;AN HELP

And then I wake up to the OFFICIAL BAND INSTAGRAM posting a picture of me while I was doing my meet and greet - holy shit! HOLY SHIT. HELP. THIS IS AMAZING.

So credits due:
Scott Blake of Yordreem Creations, for doing this one-time-only custom commission of both the mask and the costume - total badass and master of his craft. To be clear, he does not sell these.

Sewcherry Onatopp Stitchwork, for drawing up the mitre design, and doing all the embroidery work.

Enjoy! If you wish to join the journey, I’ll be posting more to this tumblr (I suck at staying active), and I also post to my instagram, @notpapaemeritus.

TBT: Lane as a Rockford Peach (from A League of Their Own) I made the entire costume (including the patches) out of fabrics from upcycled Goodwill garments. She had a baseball hat, too, but she was too busy running bases to wear it. ;)  I still need to snap some pictures of her in this costume at Casey’s Corner in WDW because I’m a dork like that. :D
