A blast to the past and a new wig

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!

2014 Plans?

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!

Long time no see

Well, hello there ^^;; It’s been over a year since my last post. The reason for that is… I actually haven’t cosplayed in over a year.

Yep, that’s right. I haven’t worn my cosplays in over a year. I haven’t worked on any cosplays in over a year. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. I even missed my usual cons last year (A-kon and AnimeFest). I got married last year, and it’s amazing how much wedding planning can suck up your time.

But! This year will be different. I hope! Here are my cosplay plans.
