Customer provided me with LED programmed eyes which will look around and blink based on a motion in front of a small hidden sensor. I’ve been dying to use some of these eyes since I saw them, so it was really exciting to get a chance to play with them. Costume features subtle ab and chest padding, arm and leg scales, and a hidden tail pocket to hold the battery and electronics for the eyes.
My Photo Op request. “Steal my dog.” This was not a stretch given that he pointed at the dog the moment I came through the curtain. I took it to get signed and it slid down to him, earning laughter and an exclaimed “Yessssss!!! I’m so glad this photo exists in the world.” End of game? Once again Lucky the Pizza Dog steals the show… (A better version to follow when I can scan it.) Why yes I did have it signed to Clint. Shhhhhhh.
(( Kind of random but it’s tradition to draw my kids dressed up in jojo cosplay so I did one for Rowan. I ended up picking Bruno and then was immediately reminded of why I don’t draw Bruno in his suit ever. (part 5 more like part please save Passione from their awful fashion choices) ))
Because I’m greedy and couldn’t just do one cosplay, I broke out my prom dress (god I look so different now) and had a photo taken with Chris Barrie! (And before you ask, yes, that wide eyed stare is supposed to be me in character, not just me being shit at posing, which I am anyway, but that’s besides the point)
Chris complimented my Flibbles. It was great!
(if you see yourself, please get in contact so I can tag you!)
The cosplay outfit finally arrived, and I decided that trying it on was a better use of my time than writing a psychology essay. It needs a good iron but apart from that it fits wonderfully and looks quite good I think ♥
however the petticoat keeps slipping below my skirt so i need to tighten it somehow /cries
I wanted to put together my cosplays over the years. This is really not all of them but I find myself lacking pictures of most of them… E.g Male Galinda, Combeferre, Rainbowdash (yes I cosplayed a pony sue me) Raoul (who to be fair isn’t quite finished) Lucius malfoy and a few others :)
I challenge all my cosplay friends to do this as well, its kinda cool to see how I’ve improved. Of course if you dont want to, you dont have to :)
“I think they are a form of breathing. I think that’s what happens. It’s just the way– because they can change their bodies, and because they can go onto different planets where the atmosphere is different, they probably have to alter the way they breathe. And the way we breathe through our mouth and our nose isn’t quite enough for them. So, I think they use all of these, what you call suction cups, to take in the atmosphere, and make it safe for them to breathe. That’s my idea. I don’t know for sure, but I suspect it’s something like that. Excellent question!”
With The Zygon Invasion airing soon, I remembered this cute video of Peter answering questions from kids during this year’s San Diego Comic Con. One girl named Rowan (appropriately cosplaying as Osgood) asked why Zygons have suction cups. Peter’s answer was both hilarious and creative. :)
