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. […]

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.

Kollision Con Photoshoot: Gender-Bent Ozymandias

As a result, I’ve been jonesing to do […]

2014 Year in Review: Cosplay

I’ve been cosplaying for a few years now, but I completely outdid myself this year. 2015 is looking to be the same. I made a total of eight costumes from scratch (or close to it), and even wore some other costumes put together from regular clothes (which I’m not going to include here, since I didn’t construct them […]

Recap: Project Cosawesome

It’s a little difficult to write about things when so much time has passed, but I finally have enough pictures to share with you to make it worth showing you guys! Project Cosawesome happened from November 14-16th. It was an event for cosplayers and cosplay photographers to come together, share the things we know, and […]

5 Cosplay Costumes I Want to See IRL

From the 14th to the 16th, I was at this great cosplay event. I saw so many amazing costumes and meant excellent people. I’m waiting for some more pictures from it before I write up a recap, but I’m excited to tell you guys all about it! In the meantime, though, I started thinking about a […]
