holy shit i LOVE these photos so much it was SO! hard choosing just four for the photoset. Rachel was so passionate and SO EXCELLENT to work with this weekend and i’m way too excited to finish editing all of her lovely photos :o)

OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH I’M IN LOVE WITH THESE PHOTOS (omg you can catch a small glimpse of my constellation socks in the second pic whaaaaaaaugh ;A; )

I’ve been cosplaying as Apollo since 2008, and it’s one of my favourite all-time cosplays. I knew as soon as Apollo’s new design came out for Dual Destinies that I was GOING to cosplay it at Otakon this year (and that want was solidified after I played the game).

I worked really damn hard on Clay’s old coat & fixed up my wig by adding a widow’s peak & sideburns. And the photoshoot I had with Nancy was just SO MUCH FUN and these photos I think really capture that. :))))

My friend Jade sent me the couple of photos she took of my Captain Tashigi cosplay Friday at Otakon and OH GOSH I LOVE THEM!!! 

I love cosplaying Tashigi so much. One Piece was babby’s first fandom and continues to be one of my favourite series of all time. I did a photoshoot in the harbour that day too, and I’ll be posting those pics once I get them in a few weeks!!! 

Cosplay made and worm by myself

a collection of the one piece cosplays that i found while i was at otakon! everyone was so kind when i asked for a picture, and they were all absolutely amazing. there were a ton more that i didn’t come across or didn’t have the opportunity to ask for a picture, and i wasn’t able to fit the photoshoots into my schedule, but i can’t wait to see the pictures that others got. 

if you recognize someone or you’d like yourself to be tagged, please tell me and i’ll do so immediately (and thank you for making my weekend)!

Yeah! Apollo’s coat is DONE!!! I’m super happy with how it come out.

Gloves should be arriving tomorrow, so I can start the bandages (I’m making them removable so I can wash my hands and whatnot) & eyepatch, which is all I have left to make!

SUPER excited to wear this to Otakon. :D

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH IT’S UNREAL.

Final cosplay test (sans makeup) for AwesomeCon tomorrow! 

Minus a few more zipper fixes, Kate is good to go! Super excited for the con, can’t wait! 

I found purple lensed sunglasses last-minute online, but the lenses are WAY TOO BIG for my face. So I’ll probably go with my normal sunglasses instead. 

Well, Kate Bishop&#8217;s about 80% done at this point. Just need to find a headband/sunglasses and make sure the wig looks OK. 
Gonna probably add a little loop to the back of the suit so that the belt stays in place. And try to fix the zipper as much as possible (the puckers are driving me a bit nuts, but at this point I feel like there isn&#8217;t much I can do about it. :/) 
Maybe I&#8217;ll try to find a cheap plush dog to turn into Pizza Dog Lucky???? Maybe???
Overall, I&#8217;m very pleased, especially since this the first garment I&#8217;ve ever made from a knit/stretch fabric EVER!

Since I never seemed to have made a post 3 months ago and it’s getting to be that time of the year when it becomes “SEW ALL THE THINGS” time: COSPLAY PLANS 2014, GO. 

Cosplay plans for this year are:

  • Kate Bishop/Hawkeye [Franction/Aja version]
  • Tashigi [timeskip] (I know I finished her last year, but I’m gonna be fixing a few things up)
  • Apollo Justice [GS5 version]
  • Mako Mankanshoku (with hopefully my BFF as Ryuko)
  • Donald Duck gijinka (for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!!!!)

I’m also making Disney costumes for my parents & boyfriend for MNSSHP. It’s gonna be so much fun~

Tentative Planned Conventions for this year are:

  • Awesome Con DC [Kate]
  • Otakon [Tashigi/Apollo/Mako]
  • Anime USA (MAYBE. Depends on work schedule & money!) [cosplays unsure]

I’ve gotten a lot of materials for things already. So excited for the costumes I’m making this year!!! :D 

Progress on my Kate Bishop cosplay is coming along pretty nicely! The suit itself only needs the legs hemmed, the shoulder cutout made, and just finagling little details. The I gotta accessorize the whole thing (headband/belt/gloves/etc.)! I should have this cosplay done forAwesomeCon in a few weeks!!! 
I&#8217;ve never sewn this much spandex before so I&#8217;m pretty proud of what I&#8217;ve made so far. 
my workspace is a mess I&#8217;m so sorry

Got the photos back from the shoot I had with Tofu at Katsucon and OH GOSH, I’M SO HAPPY.

I’ve been cosplaying as Apollo since 2008 and this is the first formal photoshoot I’ve had with this costume!

The Ace Attorney series is one of my all-time favourite video games, not just for the characters and story (which are WONDERFUL), but also because the fans of the series are pretty much the best. I gave this cosplay a bit of a fix-up in 2010, and am super happy with the improvement!

The vest is made from linen (red fabric) & gabardine (black fabric). The tie is also linen, and is the only sewn part of the costume I HAVEN’T remade at some point. :’) Blouse was purchased. I also made my attorney’s badge! It’s made out of Model Magic & painted with acrylics. 

My bracelet had been the one part of the costume I struggled with. In the few years I’ve worn this costume, I’ve re-made the bracelet 4 times. I ended up finding a 3D printed version on Etsy from a shop called Cosplastic. It’s AMAZING. breaks apart into 2 pieces, and fits together with magnets! A little loose on my tiny baby wrists, but that’s fine!

I styled the wig myself. it’s a “Cher” I bought on Amphigory when I first made the costume (though it’s been re-styled a few times since I bought it)! I’d love to attempt his crazy-ass hairline someday, but I can’t find wefts in the right shade of brown. :C

I LOVE THIS COSTUME SO MUCH. For Otakon I’ll be cosplaying as Bandaged!Polly. Can’t wait to make Clay’s old jacket (I’ll be cry-sewing).
