I wrote an entry over at my other blog about how I decide on which cosplays to make. At the end of it, I showed photos of my very first costume. I wanted to show that I made it without sewing experience, still had a fun time with it, and improved from there. After all, we all have to start somewhere right?
Anyway, the sewing mistakes I made were pretty bad, and it’s funny to look back on them :)
In more recent cosplay news, I bought a new wig during Arda Wigs’ sale! This is their “Chibi” in “Sandy Brown”. I thought it’d be a good base wig for Silica (Sword Art Online) :)
Hope to actually have cosplay progress to show soon!

New year, new cosplays! Sort of… I haven’t really decided on the costumes I want to make this year XD;; There are a couple things I want to do though…
1. Make a Portal gun and better long fall blades for my Chell cosplay
Though I originally was going for her Portal 2 look, I’ve realized that I like wearing it as her Portal 1 instead. It’s mainly because it would show more details on the jumpsuit, and it’s also pretty comfy XD So, I want to re-do the long fall blades, and of course, add a Portal gun.
2. FINALLY finish our Spirited Away costumes
Seriously. These have been on the back burner for too long. Though my Haku costume is done, I’d like to re-do some things on it. I’m much better at sewing than I was a few years ago, so there are things I can improve. Then I need to finish Chihiro’s outfit and figure out something for No Face.
3. New things maybe?
I want to start on something totally new too, but I’m not sure what yet. Right now I’m eyeing Silica’s outfit from Sword Art Online. I have a friend who would be interested in cosplaying Liz from the same series, so that could be fun.
Anyway, I’ve updated my sidebar with cons I’m thinking about going too. Nothing is really set in stone yet though.
I also went to Ikkicon recently to do photoshoots. Check out my Flickr set to see previews from them!

Tada! The jumpsuit is finished! I wore it as Chell’s Portal 1 version for Halloween and also made some long fall blades for my legs.
I didn’t add much from what I posted last entry. I just added two pockets (front and back) and the Aperture name tag.
For the name tag, I used fabric markers and just wrote it on some white fabric, which I sewed on afterwards. The pockets have light interfacing behind them and are bordered with thin bias tape.
