Let’s talk about PROGRESS.
In 2012 I took on my first sewing project ever, Daenerys’ Dothraki gear from season 1. I had never really touched a sewing machine before, it scared the crap out of me, but I did it anyway and created my first home made cosplay. I didn’t really like how it looked on me, it was illfitting, the wig was thin and way too bright, and the frabics were all off, but I still loved it anyway! Because it was the first cosplay I made completely myself, and that made me really proud of myself.
Forward two years later to my latest update on my Dothraki Dany. I remade nearly everything (except for the white sash thingy which I weathered), and I’m sooo so happy with how it looks now. Also notice how much difference posing properly makes!! And MAKEUP, WIGS. AND BETTER EDITING. YAY.
Daenerys and this costume will always have a special place in my heart, because it was the one that finally pushed me into cosplaying for real ♥
So if you ever feel like you can’t actually make anything or you’re just to scared to start, YOU CAN DO IT.
(and Dothraki Dany is an EXCELLENT first project, it’s easy, and because it’s supposed to look ugly-ish and weathered, and those are the funnest cosplays to do!)
