Edea is so painful to wear!!

This is right before i tore it all off at the end of the day, because it's soooo uncomfortable! My wig cap is showing, because I was getting ready to take it off after wearing it for 3 + hours! Stupid skull. why you gotta be so big!? Otakon has been super fun so far!! Awesome roomates make it even better!

Rainbow Dash

Some parts for my Rainbow Dash costume from My Little Pony friendship is magic. I like to post crappy cell phone pics, because i'm way too lazy to charge my actual camera.

Edea makeup test.

I'm just playing around with some makeup trying to get ideas.

There's an alien living in my Edea helmet, and he tells me secret things.

Just some quick photos of I took of my newly completed Edea helmet for Otakon 2011. Bad lighting, but you get the idea.

I am  SO glad i'm done with this stupid thing. I was getting flustered! No more hours of painting little details while watching Ancient Aliens on Netflix! Now I get to hand sew feathers while watching Ancient Aliens on Netflix instead. JOYS OF COSPLAY..GO!

But YAY, now it has that weird pointy design thing on the back of the helmet that I could never seem to get before! Can't see it very well from this angle though!

Last of the Cosplay Questions

23. Your most expensive cosplay

Either of these two:

24. Your most comfortable cosplay and most uncomfortable cosplay

Most Comfortable:

Most Uncomfortable:
Ugh the way this thing makes your head and neck feel after a few hours...! I love me some hardcore doses of Advil! 

25. The cosplay you put the most effort into

Well definitely Sorceress Edea since I've re-made it so many STUPID times. 

Also this thing due the amount of planning and engineering I did:

26. Any unfinished costumes? Will you ever finish them?
oh man yes! I have several costumes that are laying around my sewing room that need to be made! 
I don't know if i'll ever finish Alex Rowe from Last Exile for Josh. I got really bored of it...even though it's almost done! I really just need to suck it up and complete it!

I also have all the supplies for or have started on these:

It's pretty ridiculous! lol 

27. How many wigs do you own? Which is your favourite?
omg a lot. I have a wig addiction, and I have a ton I haven't even worn. No idea of an exact count. 

28. Where do you work on your cosplays and where do you store them when they’re done?
I have a sewing room dedicated to my costume stuff. I store parts in various places: some in my costume closet, some in the basement, some in the shed (depending on their size)

29. What is your favourite cosplay item? (eg. a pair of shoes, a wig)

My ex-mode Griever mask! I'm so proud of him, and I LOVE HIM!! Like a child, lol. 

30. Describe cosplay in three words. No more, no less
expensive, time consuming, artistic
