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 :)

New Vaporeon photo today. :D This one is by Wild Tiger Cosplay Photography.

Going to probably be taking a break from cosplay and gaming stuff for a bit to focus on the rest of the term. : 3 If I don’t have too much to do by Wednesday though I’ll hold a WIP Wednesday stream.

Blargh guys. Sorry for the lack of photos. I have no motivation right now and I just got home from work about 20 minutes ago. Long day.

Somehow between tomorrow and Monday night I have to do 4 art projects, clean my room, sell some old textbooks online, try to work on my Kurami cosplay, work, and have a dental appointment. X.x;

Please hope the force is with me.

My purchases for Sakizou have began. Custom designed my tights and found some socks I love. My gloves from @welovecolors arrived.

Next purchases will be shoes and petticoats once I get paid again.
