So I was cosplaying Gamzee for London MCM, and I was talking to this Tav.
And from nowhere this little lolita girl (hella cute) walked up to me and tugged at my sleeve. I was all “Oh, HeY” and she gave me this cute little smile Reached into her little wicker basket and pulled out
It had “ *Honk* :o) ” written on it. I was sO FUCKING CONFUSED
My cosplay from my first (July 2011) to my latest (May 2014)
I’m still very new to cosplay. I’ve only been doing it for 3 years but I’m very proud of the costumes I’ve created in that time. Each time I try to push myself to try something new: a new style, a new technique, something a bit out of my comfort zone.
I’m always very conscious of my weight when I cosplay, I’m a plus sized cosplayer and some people don’t really like that but hey, if someone sees me and thinks “well if she can cosplay then so can I” then I’m happy. Cosplaying has increased my confidence infinitely and I’m greatful to the friends I have that are my constant cosplaying companions and the friends I have made through the hobby.
Here’s to future costumes and hopefully future improvement!
Debuted my completed Rabbit costume at London MCM Comic Con this weekend!
(the heels were murder on my feet, which is why I eventually switched into a black pair of Converse)
Much fun was had~
Also, can I just say, it’s quite surreal to not only be recognized for the character I’m cosplaying, but being recognized personally. A surprising amount of people came up to me and asked me if I was Moony, knowing me from tumblr. I guess I really am “fandom famous” in the SPG fandom on tumblr, lolol what.
Here are some photos of F!p and our friends at the dr and sdr2 shoot from MCM expo earlier today:
