Recap: DragonCon!

Oh, my god. You guys. You guys.  I completely loved DragonCon. It was large and crowded and busy and hot and I didn’t get to do nearly as much as I wanted to, but it was somehow still completely amazing. I got to bond with old friends in new ways, and I met so many amazing new people. […]

DragonCon Progress!

I am working frantically in order to finish my costumes for DragonCon. I thought that it would be a challenge to do two new costumes and, when it seemed like I’d finish that in time, I thought I’d do a couple MORE costumes. In all, I’ve made about four new costumes in about week and a half. […]

Recap: C2E2 2015

Yikes. I’ve been AWOL for a while, guys, and that makes me feel sad inside. So much has happened recently, and I hope to catch you all up on my life–starting with the greatest con in Chicago, C2E2. I did all three days at C2E2 this year, and we were lucky enough to get a […]

C2E2 2015 Photoshoot: Genderbent Disney Villains

I was part of an AMAZING group Sunday at C2E2–a bunch of cosplay friends and I hit the floor as genderbent Disney villains. I’m going to do another cosplay spotlight of my genderbent Jafar (like I have for Shredder and Ozymandias), but I thought I would share most of the photos with you. Because I […]

Top Five: Essentials for a Cosplay Make-up Kit

I spent this past weekend at Project Cosawesome 2 (the somehow-even-more-amazing-was-that-even-possible follow-up to the first Project Cosawesome, which I attended in November). I brought two new costumes with me–Katana and Blink–and even though my body paint for Blink didn’t make it, my make-up was more extensive than it had ever been before. I mean, just look […]

Deconstructing a Costume: Gender-Bent Ozymandias

My favorite thing about creating gender-bent costumes is the creative opportunity that comes along with the decision to feminize a male costume. Not that Ozymandias is the most masculine costume out there–which actually presented a bit of a challenge. What was I going to do to make a female Ozy outfit? Ozymandias has two costumes–the […]

Kollision Con Photoshoot: Gender-Bent Ozymandias

I’m a huge Watchmen fan. I think it’s one of the greatest comics out there for history/government nerds, and that it has an amazing cast of characters. I’m also one of those weirdos that LOVES the movie (I think it’s just gorgeous, and that the cast is great). As a result, I’ve been jonesing to do […]

2015 Cosplay Plans

A new year is full of possibilities–especially cosplay possibilities. Seriously, that was the thing I was looking forward to the most as the New Year turned: making new costumes to wear to conventions. I barely even made it into 2015 before I made a new costume: Ozymandias, which I wore to Kollision Con. 2015 Convention Schedule/Costumes […]
