Our try to recreate one of @halorvic‘s drawings :D I know it’s not so accurate cosplay, but we tried our best. :D I know I shouldn’t be wearing the jacket but it was freaking cold and I didn’t want to be ill, so whatever. :D
Being 13 feels really amazing. I don’t know how to explain it and neither do I want to waffle on, but there’s something particularly powerful being a character that you’ve always dreamed about being? Like it’s official, it’s confirmed, its REAL and I don’t have to justify a female Doctor anymore. I remember before Capaldi was announced I has this badge that said “I am the new Doctor” and everyone used to poke fun because I wasn’t a guy. And I always wished it would be a woman, and everyone used to think I was mad.
BUT LOOK HOW FAR WE’VE COME. The Doctors a girl!! And no one can take that from me? Jodie I have so much faith in you!!
Wittness my first ever cosplay, which was of Bowser.😂 The “shell” was just paper and twine and all the other accessories were duck tape. I used spray hair dye to dye my hair. Don’t even bring up my horrible makeup skills back then. 😱
My first costume looked nothing like all the cosplayers who had inspired me to try out cosplay, but I had fun making my outfit and hanging out in costume! So I continued to cosplay and eventually discovered I could incorporate my love of crochet into my costumes. And from there a fire was lit!
Now that I have a few costumes under my belt and I’ve successfully landed on a cosplay style that’s unique to me, I’m happy to revisit my starting point.💖💖💖
I’m also happy to say that I’m sitting here, typing this out in my dorm room as I prepare to begin my journey at art school. Thanks to all the support from my friends and family I’m able to pursue my passion for crochet costumes and learn even more about the fiber arts. I hope I can come out of school with even cooler costumes!
