all by me! (yup that’s all my face, just covered in make-up) 
I don’t know if i’m going to be doing anymore, but if anyone has any suggestions, TELL MEE! 

for anyone interested in how this monster goes on:

1. ready to turn some heads at a 1920′s beach: wig cap, compression shirt, boy shorts, taped feet (the shoes are murder)

2. body bones: the shoulder and hipbones are made of foam, and attached to a rash guard and a pair of leggings. the back brace serves the dual purpose of squishing in my waist and, y’know, bracing my back.

3: skin: leather-ish lycra, which doesn’t breathe at all, hooray! the shin/knee bones are shoved down under this layer but i forgot to do that before the picture…

4. the ribcage/pelvis/spine: one piece, has a clip in the crotch and zips up the back. it’s made primarily of EVA foam and covered in leatherette lycra. the mask is made of latex with a hard skullcap that the antlers screw into, and it zips up the back. it comes down to the top of my chest and clips under my arms to keep it from riding up.

5. the gloves, wrist wraps, and hooves finish the look. it actually goes on pretty quickly, the shoes take the longest to situate. aside from the fact that it is an unbelievably sweaty sensory deprivation chamber, (and the base shoes are a size too small,) it is pretty comfortable to wear.

hit me up if you have any questions!

(it is worth noting that i am 6 feet tall barefoot, so between the shoes and the antlers this costume clocks in at almost 9 feet) (also i got pictures with Scott Thompson and Aaron Abrams and it was basically the best thing ever omg http://rokkitgirl.tumblr.com/post/128602299785/like-seriously-i-can-retire-this-cosplay-now-with )

Me as “Hannibelle Lecter”

A genderswapped version of Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

I am not a pro photographer/editor at all so sorry that this is so crappy. But I’m relatively happy with it for a first cosplay. I’ll do a picture with the skull and flower crown a bit later.
