BIG PIMPIN'! (aka female!Anders)

... seriously considering going around the con like this...

Here's the rest of it. Ignore the idiot wearing it. She's too retarded to live, sometimes.

I have the feathers to make the jacket TRULY Big Pimpin', but haven't stitched them on, because I am elbows deep in finishing Isabela's costume before I have to go back to school.

So, it turns out that the original artist of the Anders costume I was imitating has requested that no one cosplay with her designs.


Fuck off, it's MY design. You just posted your shit on deviantart. Did you invent Rule 63?

Then shut up.

Did my first battle with the sewing machine today. I was somewhat victorious.

Today was a good day.

Also: If the photos end up looking needlessly massive, blame Photobucket. I can't get it to work right.

Cosplay continues apace. For my birthday, my magnificent parents purchased for me my wig, removing a big-ticket item from my to-do list. <3

However, one step forward and holy shit the bleach turned my overcoat orange.

So, there is that.

Noooot dead. Just cosplaying.

I've started looking around for the components for the two costumes I'm making for this year's Dragon*Con, and brainstorming about how I'm going to make everything work.

My finalized plan is to create an Isabela costume from Dragon Age 2 for my wifey, [profile] zece as well as a female Anders costume for myself.

Isabela is happening because of reasons, and I'm genderbending one of my favorite characters because I fucking feel like it. I shaved my head for authenticity last year, so all the purists can just blow me.

Honestly, I'm having a lot of fun planning my costume because it frees me from having to be absolutely accurate. And now I'm going to use this freedom to turn around and try to be as accurate as possible, while tailoring everything to accommodate boobs and hips and the like.

There's a lot to be done, but I'm taking it one step at a time and utilizing found objects like a motherfucker. Plus, if I have time, I want to try my hand at making props, which should be pretty interesting.

Basically, it's official. I am one of those cosplay people...

Happy Halloween, creatures of the night.

I am in full Jack regalia (albeit with a bit more hair) and going to ALL THE CLASSES because I only give ass-kicking and fucks, and I am all out of fucks.

all we are

As promised, my 16 billion 300 someodd photos of Dragon*Con 2011!


Most of them are of the parade, and a few are the blurry and over-exposed shots I took of individual costumes during the con, itself. Fucking phone camera, I swear.

Dragon*Con 2011! )

I will probably link my 200+ pics, right after I get around to uploading them. O_O

UPDATE: Pfffft, so apparently I'm in a web article about gaming cosplay. XD

So, I'm shaving my head today.

Mostly it's for the costume. But its also because its something I've never done, before, and I have always wanted to. I hate my hair and try to do as little with it as possible, outside of dying it freaky colors. The only reason I haven't done it, before, is because my mother would FLIP.

Of course, she flipped when I got a tattoo. (in her head. I could hear it...) So that deterrent is losing its hold.

Plus, this shit will grow back. It is not permanent.

Costume = 80% complete. I have all of the components, except for a few cosmetics. All I have to do is finish putting them together.


It is gonna be weird if I actually pull this off...

Murdering the hell out of what was probably a $100+ leather jacket to start making the boots for my Jack costume. I got the thing from a resident who just up and abandoned it, and the thing was way too big for me, so its death is serving a purpose.

I am quickly learning that I am my mother's daughter in that I am completely unwilling to spend money on something that I could otherwise make with a little creativity and duct tape. The cosplayer I'm emulating was a total pro, who was into stuff like casting the little odds and ends that are attached to the pants and costume, and she definitely mentioned dying cloth to match.

I'm more like, "Soda cans and foam board? WE'RE IN BUSINESS!" And also, sharpie.

Progress is being made!

Dragon*Con 2011~! It's a ways off, but I plan on actually dedicating some time and effort to this year's costume, so early is good.

This year, I'm planning on going as Jack from Mass Effect 2 )

More as the project progresses!
