What a Katsucon this was!
Quick preview until the photos get in! From top to bottom: Formal attire inspired by the red and white-cloaked Journey travelers, Mabel & Ford Pines (not pictured: the interdimensional rift prop), and Lady Amalthea
For the first time ever, I made no new costumes for myself, but did make 2 costumes for someone else - that person being my lovely fiancee! The formal white Journey outfit marked the completion of an idea I’d had since 2014, which in turn led to the fulfillment of my dream of us wearing the Journey attire to the Katsucon formal ball.
Ford & Mabel were a lot of fun to be (and pose as - the rift prop led to some fun shenanigans) and the weather allowed us to explore & take some amusing photos outdoors with the president statues in National Harbor. Also, I’d like to thank the GF cosplayers we ran into in the dealer’s room for letting me borrow your Waddles for the pic - it was super soft & squishy!
Lastly, I wore Lady Amalthea, and got a handful of reactions from people too good too pure for this world who recognized the unicorn. A big thank you as well to the person who snapped an instant Polaroid & gave it to me!
I have no idea what I’ll cosplay next year, but seeing all the amazing cosplays at Katsu never fails to inspire me. For now though, I’m going to unwind & take a break from making anything this week…Then dive back in!
