So I know I said I was going to cosplay “Mom” but then my lovely fiancee @paradigmshift2 wanted to do Gordon von Strangle and I offered to be his darling wife! I was very nervous about wearing this cosplay because of… well… tummy issues. I do like the way she turned out though! Not to mention it was really fun.
My boyfriend and I decided to cosplay Cosmo & Wanda (from the Fairly Odd-Parents) at Magic City Comic Con this past weekend, and our friend Diego was Timmy Turner! We got tons of compliments (even from Bill Nye!!) and we took loads of photos with people! Overall, the crowns and accessories were a bit tedious to make, but in the end it was very rewarding because we got to meet and interact with so many cool people. It’s an experience that I hope to have again soon, hopefully being at Supercon 2016!
Throughout this year, I have been introduced to Homestuck, and started cosplaying it around February. Then before the school year ended, I tried Chip Skylark, and I do plan to seriously cosplay him for a convention in 2014.
In the middle of Summer, I practiced my first attempts at Karkat, which included a Prom!Stuck outfit. Later on, I cosplayed his fancy outfit at a Homestuck meetup. A few months back when school was starting up, I tried Shirtless Karkat as well. I didn’t have his shirt yet, so I just kind of went without one.
Then, I tried out my first attempts at John! God Tier John it was! Soon enough, going into the fall, I had my finished Karkat and it was ready to go, and I put up a makeup tutorial as well only about a week ago! So that proves that over the past couple of months, I have been striving to improve bits and pieces of my Karkat cosplay.
When December came around, I tried out Rufioh more and more, fixing little things here and there, and viola! New wings and a clean cosplay. Then finally at Christmas, I did some Christmas John and Dave for you all. I had never been a Strider before, so that was so much fun!
This year has been a fantastic year for cosplay and just a wonderful year in general for me. I didn’t start making most Homestuck cosplays until the end of the summer, but look at how I’ve grown! I had only made 2 Homestuck cosplays total in the spring and one in the middle of summer, so by the end of summer, I was making cosplays here and there as well as in the fall!
Thank you all for your support and for sticking by me as I grew and evolved in my cosplays, and look forward to new ones next year! I love you all and I hope you’ll look forward to my future cosplays! I definitely think that 2014 will be a great year!
