Yesterday night we won 2nd place in Intermediate Craftsmanship in the Anime Banzai cosplay contest and I could not be happier. For the last two years we’ve put our blood, sweat, and tears into these costumes. They are our children at this point, and we love and hate them all at the same time. I feel so honored to finally win an award seeing as this is the third contest we’ve entered them in. I can’t wait to make more funny and great moments in these costumes because regardless of the frustration and anxiety they give me, the good moments have always outweighed the bad. Thanks most of all to @slightlyshinydragonscales for being there and creating these beautiful costumes. I love you so much, none of this would be possible without you babe c:
So I’m the oldest and the wittiest and the gossip in New York City is insidious
I am so happy to share my Angelica Schuyler cosplay with you all!! It’s historically accurate and as close to stage accurate as I could get. I used ten yards of a beautiful two-toned faux taffeta for the fashion fabric, but there’s also about seven undergarments (and pockets!) underneath to give it structure. The bodice is steel boned, with lace and chiffon trim around the whole thing.
This gown took 225 hours to complete; it’s by far the best thing I’ve ever made and I’m so, so proud of it.
Despite an initial lack in confidence and almost missing the event entirely I managed to attend MCM Expo last weekend as Sasha from Tales From The Borderlands and I’m incredibly pleased with the final outcome.
Since it’s Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and there’s tons of Asian DA-related stuff, I thought I’d finally post the super cool photos I had taken at ECCC 2016. Seriously I squealed when I saw them. He did such a great job! It’s a nice way to remember how well this costume turned out.
Here’s the first set for our Big Hero 6 cosplays! These are Sam and Marvin’s first cosplays; I’m so proud of these dudes. <3 More pics to come! Hopefully we’ll be able to get the full squad together (; For now, I hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed shooting them and seeing the movie!
