1. Post a picture of your first and current cosplay.
2. Say who they are and why you picked them. Explain cosplay now, what you learned from it, and what you love about it, and some advice for new cosplayers. 

Takasugi Shinsuke from Gintama wasn’t my first cosplay, but it was the first one I made!  Say hello to my full on cross dressing animu days, ha. I love charismatic antagonists/anti-heroes and I went through my Gintama phase……… A
t that time Shinsuke was some god-like hella attractive creature to me so….yeah cosplay happened.

I remember his yukata on ebay was like $150-$200?? I was like “oh hell no, this ain’t gonna work… I’m gonna have to make it” 
I was taking my sewing classes in grade 9 so I had very noobish sewing/patterning skills. Luckily, I found a yukata tutorial on dA and did my own thing from there.
I’m still very proud of this cosplay to this day! I remember staying up to 3 am painting on the butterflies, and fray-checking the gold accents on the hem of the yukata /screams It’s still in my closet somewhere, maybe I’ll remake it one day!

My most recent cosplay is Arno Dorian, but it still needs improvement. So it’s going to be  Mary Read instead from Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag! UGGHHH THIS BADASS-PIRATE-CROSS-DRESSING-CAN-PISS-STANDING-UP WOMAN has engraved her sheer awesomeness into my soul. This costume was also the first time I learned how to hand embroider things, beading, re-creating/customizing a printed fabric, scar makeup and worbla??? basically a lot of shit went into this costume and I’m fucking proud of it. 

Cosplay has taught me a lot of things such as the handicrafts and a decent human being in general. Things I love about this hobby is the amount of friends I get to make, das important. 
But throughout the years, I’ve seen/been involved with the shift from “making friends and geeking out” to “who makes the better (insert character)” and it’s an upsetting and embarrassing thought. 
For me (and I’m sure for a lot of you guys out there), cosplay is a hobby where I am able to utilize my creative skills as an artist in my area of expertise, and constantly learning from others at that! But y’know, I guess everyone has their own reason to cosplay, but at the end of the day it’s about your own happiness gained from this hobby (But it really shouldn’t be a beauty pageant)

New cosplayers: Don’t compare yourself with others! Set yourself to your own proper standards and work towards it. Make friends, remember to have fun, it is not a beauty pageant, and we’re all just geeks dressing up as fictional characters!

and one last time to engrave to your brains: IT IS NOT A BEAUTY PAGEANT!!!

 

Sorry I’ve been neglecting tumblr. Con season is over so now it’s time to start the major cosplays in 2015! I have one surprise cos lined up but still finding the time to debut it. 

Con schedule is up in the air right now, and I do want to travel outside of Seattle… But for now, local cons are a go! 

AC ROGUE ANYONE??!?!? I’m in love with Shay’s full on leather templar robes and it’s taking every inch of my soul to resist myself from making it. I’m taking a break from complicated AC cosplays, but I’ll fix up Arno and start on Elise after ACU’s release yeeeee!!

Also super excited to start on Borderlands! Started on Moxxi already even though I lack the serious boobage, but Ren, Fizz and Miles will be starting on Tiny Tina, Gaige and Maya!!! Also super hyped for Telltales mainly cause I conned  convinced Tyler to be the Rhys to my Fiona /hue
