night vale costume

Gooooooood morning Desert Bluffs! The sun is shining, the falcons are singing, and it’s Job Swap Day! It’s the one day a year we all get to try out someone else’s job because, as you know, we each have a work assignment from birth and sometimes you need a reminder that the smiling god does not make mistakes. Today I join you from the local organic food and poisonous pet store, Earth Fare, and they tell me I’m doing something called “graphic design”. This sounds much less dangerous than last year’s air traffic controller assignment, so let’s keep our fingers crossed and an eye towards the sky for a safe and exciting Job Swap Day!

Wanted to do a collage of all my cosplays so here they are!

First Row: Noh Face from Spirited Away, Girl With The Upside Down Face from The Black Tapes Podcast, Laura from Carmilla, zombie wench

Second Row: Dr. Horrible from Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, stabbed Wash from Firefly/Serenity, Doris from Vampire Hunter D

Third Row: San from Princess Mononoke, Kaylee from Firefly/Serenity, Dr. Insano from Channel Awesome, Mad March from SyFy’s Alice

Fourth Row: Glow Cloud from Welcome To Night Vale, Season Six Cliffhanger from The Walking Dead, Rose from Doctor Who

It’s odd because I actually thought I’d done more but I seem to have 14 completed cosplays that have attended at least one convention since 2007-ish. Hope to bring more to life soon, starting with the Demogorgon that I’m so close to finishing!

(This one was super hard to make, but the end product was totally worth it. I got great reception with this costume and can’t wait to bring out an improved version sometime soon! Thanks so much to Colleen for the lovely photos and also helping me, Sydney, and Ash finish this abomination. I love all of you! <3)

I made my own little Welcome to Night Vale costume for Halloween. One shoe has “INTERN” on both sides with the moon in the toe part and the other shoe has “WELCOME LISTENERS” on the left side and a music note, for the weather, on the right side and there’s a small radio tower on the toe. If you’re familiar with the intern success rate at Night Vale Community Radio then you’ll understand why my shirt looks so bloody.

Note from radio host, Cecil Palmer: To the family of Intern Ashley, she will be greatly missed and her services to her community radio station are not in vain. Her seemingly last report before disappearing into the Whispering Forest was that the trees were especially complimentary then the message gets kind’ve staticy and goes dead. Again, to the family of Intern Ashley, our deepest condolences.

Slowly piecing together...

… my Halloween costume. I normally wait until the very last minute and can never think of anything.

Me and my partner decided to be Kevin and Cecil from Welcome to Night Vale, respectively.

Went thrift shopping today and got a yellow button-up. I already have a black tie, pants, boots, some copper/brown headphones. Bought these like… sharp teeth that are supposed to be special effects quality. Gonna do really creepy make-up and I bought these purple and yellow reflective sunglasses that cover my eyes, which will work really well with the black make-up I’m gonna do around my eyes. Low-key considering buying black sclera contact lenses, but I don’t know if I could handle putting them in…

The only thing I need is a black vest for the costume and to practice the make-up before the parties I’m going to.

Fanime was a blast! I really loved talking to people and seeing cosplays, I wish I got more pictures, but first conventions are always hectic and I honestly didn’t recognize too many people. Anyways, here are some of the best that I could take a picture of!! Please let me know who these people are so I can tag them!! Arthur/kuranosuke/ middle Cecil: me

FINALLY FUCKIN’ FINISHED!

I’m actually really glad with how the embroidered nameplate/insignia patches came out and I will do better next time now that I have some experience under my belt.

It also occurred to me that I didn’t explain the meanings of the non-labeled merit badges so here goes
Cassette tape: Dark Owl Records Dance Off Participant
Tyrell Corp Logo: Passing the Turing Test
All-Seeing-Eye: Summoning an Ancient God
Tomorrowland Insignia: Time Travel - Future (now that the City Council has lifted the ban on time travel, of course.)
