Wickedkitty’s My Year in Cosplay Post

So I was going to make this after Newcon, but I’m really only making one more outfit for that and I’ve been looking back on 2013 a lot tonight.

This year was by far the biggest year of cosplay for me, and a big year for improvement. I started working on more complicated projects and sewing and pattern drafting, and I have to say looking back I’m really proud of how far I’ve come compared to 2012, when the most I did was modify a pair of pants or a skirt. I entered my first cosplay contest and even though I was completely unprepared for it, it was a cool experience. I’m starting to get recognition at the conventions I go to and that is one of the most amazing feelings in the world.

Even with my busy schedule, I busted out six new official cosplays this year, with many more closet cosplays and plans along the way. I got to do partner cosplays with both Josh and Lauren-who now is my wonderful cosplay partner and photographer and pretty much my partner in crime for all things cosplay-and being able to cosplay with them were both AMAZING experiences on their own. I attended two conventions and have another one next week, and met so many wonderful people through cosplay this year that I wouldn’t trade for the world.

I’m really excited about my skills improving, and I can’t wait to see what I’m able to make next year. Here’s to hoping for the best :)

Sailor Maids Brady Bunch style? :D We could have our own anime cafe. Thinking about running one for Kumo this year.

So for Kumoricon we were planning to do Love Live cosplays. But our original plan for angels has kind of fallen through with all of us for various reasons. Now it has kind of been narrowed down to a couple options that I’m considering buying. Which one do you like best? I’m also debating just getting the cute PJ kitty outfit for funies~ <3

WELP. I guess the cat is out of the bag now. I’m going to be doing Magical Girl Espeon for a group for Sakuracon along with @pixiebell_cosplay who’s Eevee and @wickedkittycos as my Umbreon. <3 Anywho my contacts came in today. A subtle lavendar, I’m pretty excited.

So I play a LOT of Gw2 as a salad. So people have started saying I should do a GW2 cosplay. I pulled up two of the most well known Sylvari characters in GW2, Caithe and the Pale Tree. Which one would you guys think would be cooler in cosplay form?
