Cosplay Meme Part 2


11. Something cosplay-related that you will never do (eg. crossplay, cosplay from a certain series)

I will never cosplay from Naruto, Bleach, Dragon Ball Z, Panty and Stocking, Hetalia. I will never crossplay - I'm too girly!

12. Your cosplay idol.

Little guy's got MAD talent man! 

13. Your cosplay specialty (ie. something that seems to apply to a large amount of your cosplays, it could be a specific series, or a common feature in their appearance, such as glasses)

I love crafting things from clay and painting them! I think that's my strongest talent. I'm also pretty good at altering shoes for cosplay. I'm also starting to work with resin, so hopefully I will good with that too!

14. Your cosplay-making habits (eg. singing while working on cosplay)

I like to have science shows playing on Netflix when I work on stuff. I especially love anything about space, extraterrestrial beings, or the universe. I also like to eat Cheetos, but they make my fingers cheesy and I have to wash them all the time. It's sort of a dumb idea. 

15. Your least favourite thing about cosplay

I HATE to style and cut wigs. I also hate custom coloring them.

16. Do you belong to any cosplay groups? If so, what are they?
No not really. Unless Josh and I count as a group, lol.

17. What events have you cosplayed to?
Tons of conventions over the years! Too many to list here. I have also cosplayed at Best Buy with Josh to win a free copy of FF13, and for a cosplay fashion show at the Washington D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival.

18. What is your best cosplay memory?
Josh in Seifer proposing to me while I was wearing my Sorceress Ultimecia costume at Otakon!

19. What is your worst cosplay memory?
Falling down the stairs in a parking garage at Otakon 2003 on sunday. I sprial fractured the upper bone in my arm and messed up my elbow! I had to be taken away by ambulance (my first and thankfully only ambulance ride)! My arm was so bad. It's actually still not completely straight.

20. Have you won any cosplay awards?
Yep! :)

21. Show us your best cosplay derp photo!

22. Have you worn cosplay in a regular situation? (eg. at school, to work)

Heck no! For the most part, my hobby is separate from normal life.

Cosplay Meme Part 1

This is just a fun little cosplay thing I found on Livejournal. I will be answering the questions throughout several posts. There are a lot!

1. Your first cosplay:

Check out that awesome plastic shotgun! I LOVED that thing. I was so proud of this stupid costume! I had no idea what I was doing with it though. <3 Still love Claire Redfield! 

2. How many costumes have you done?

I just counted 57 on my website, but I may have miscounted since it's after work and. I'm brain dead.

3. Your most recent cosplay.

4. Your cosplay communities; where do you go to talk about cosplay?

Mostly my  own website a,d cosplay facebook, Cosplay Blogger thing, sometimes on Twitter. Certainly not LJ much since I am too busy/lazy/boring to update it as much as I should. 

5. Blatant self plug! Link us to your cosplay page, be it dA, ACP, Coscom, whatever!
Cosplay Facebook
Cosplay Blog - Already thinking of deleting this stupid thing. I don't really keep up with updating it already! 0_o

6. Your favourite cosplay (that you have done)

Being 100% re-made AGAIN for Otakon.  I'm nutzo with this thing! I like to apply my new skills on it to see how I've grown.

7. The character you have cosplayed that is most similar to you (if none that you have cosplayed, then one that you will cosplay)

8. Your cosplay plans for the rest of the year (if you have no more for this year, then do next year!)


9. The dream cosplay that might just happen
It used to be Ultimecia way back when I first started out (also re-making it for Katsucon 2012).
Now it's THIS:

Hoping to make it next year sometime!

10. The dream cosplay that will never happen

Probably this because I can't find the damn fabric! I really don't want to paint hexagons all over it by hand!

Progress!? OMG!

Hooray! I'm progressing! Slowly... I really hope everything comes together nicely with this stupid thing. It's been a huge pain in the butt. Instead of uploading all of the photos to this post, i'm just linking to my progress photos from my Cosplay Facebook Page.

Facebook pics: New Edea helmet progress photos!

Otakon prep!

Soo...yeah not updating this thing much! XD I'm bad with even updating my normal Live Journal or Cosplay Facebook, so this thing is pretty hard to keep up with too! I'm still hard at work on my Edea headpeice, and i'll be posting more progress photos soon! Otakon is coming up really fast now! I was going to make another new costume to wear on Friday, but i'm sure that's just not gonna happen. I'm not sure what costume I should take for Friday. Any ideas?

Here's What's goin' down so far with the new Edea headpeice yo!

This thing is making me bitter! sorta lol! It's taking forever, and it's not even near complete!
It's made of various random things: wire, newspaper, Crayola Model Magic, Resin, Wonderflex, polystyrene plasic, cereal box cardboard, Rigid Wrap, and mostly Paper Clay.

I think all of the Paper Clay dust from sanding made me sick. ;_; It flared up my allergies, and now I feel icky! My fault for not wearing a dust mask!
