Cosplay Firsts!

So, what was a cosplay milestone or first that you achieved today? mine is stabbing myself with a pin for the first time. I was pinning armor pieces together in preparation to hot glue them, and the glue gun fell and as i went to pick it up i stabbed my thumb!

Not exactly today but recently I've been making my first props- Midna's helmet and a robotic arm.

Making my first helmet too! Ratchet's helmet is… well it's something. I may rebuild it now that I know what I'm doing.

Drafting my first pattern from scratch 100% by myself. Up til that point I had had help from a friend's mom who was a teacher of costume design or otherwise I just modified existing patterns.

Making my first Worbla prop. This all happened in the past week so I am feeling very accomplished XD

Today I have successfully put together the base form of my two handed great sword. This is a first because I have never made a disassemblable sword before.

Not today since I just woke up, but yesterday I started working on my first amigurumi thing, a Disturbing Doll for my friend's Garry cosplay. It takes longer than I thought to turn string into a thing.

Went material shopping for a prop for the first time! It was kind of confusing to find EVA foam, but I'm really excited to start building my super secret fun prop for ColossalCon

It was yesterday, but I had a great time on the side of a mountain going through initial engineering for a stilted Devastator costume (http://i1276.photobucket.com/albums/...ps1tysoxul.jpg)

Anyone else consider creativity to be a beautiful high? =)

Stilts will be 1'~1.5' high and my knees will be just above the lower legs. My arms will come out of the upper chest (disguised as hydraulic lines, etc.) and connect to the robot's arms just behind the forearms.

So I'm off to learn how to walk in stilts! =) Will start by borrowing/renting some drywall stilts, then build a specialized set - already have good instructions.

Mine would definitely be a bunch... I made my first costume from scratch and am now working on my first prop made of plexiglass. Super exciting, but also super scary!
