I just had someone on facebook tell me that my Zombie Aerith costume isn't cosplay because of its lack of accuracy and (I can only assume from their poor english) immaturity. Regardless of the fact that it is an original take on an existing character and relating circumstance, that it lacks all necessary elements to being true cosplay and is child's play.

While he and I got into a pretty heated argument through facebook messages and I got really angry... I am still stupidly hurt. I feel like crawling into a ball and crying! I get that not everyone shares my opinion or thinks my decisions are genius... but to be so rude? Cosplay is one of my creative outlets and I take a lot of pride and joy into my work

=(

Wow what a jelous ass you have there. Conventions would be no fun at all if every costume was the same. Tsch. Don't feel bad, you can make any version of Aerith you want; be even more cool if you got some more cosplayers to join you. XD

@Psycho: How rude! A prime example of a cosplay snot who takes the hobby way too seriously. Don't let his words get to you; there's nothing wrong with what you did! People make original costumes like that all the time. I don't know what his problem is.

I plan to take advantage of my fairly schedule-free weekend (gasp) to get some more work done. My goal is to finish my shoe bases, and/or if I'm feeling brave enough, I might start on round 2 of making my torso armor. /cringes I still haven't quite nailed down a plan for that yet though...

Wow. What a jerk. Obviously this person is stupid and is one of those people that believe only the canon stuff is cosplay and that's dumb. Cosplay is about creativity too. Don't listen to a word that idiot says. Your zombie Aerith is awesome!

Finally going home for spring break today which means I can finally start working on cosplay. ^_^.

Rrrgh. Fine-sanded, and there are now two spots on the crossguard where I need to touch up. Guess I do another six rounds of gesso and sand again -- and get a new can of primer too. >_< Add that to the fact that the feathers I dyed aren't going to work out due to shape and I am not a happy cosplay camper right now. (And BONUS is crazy work time and other obligations nerfing any time to work on said cosplay. I may have six weeks before Fanime but that is not helping my nerves right now.)

So funimation is looking for cosplayers for their event at ACen. I looked it over and saw... a lot of closet cosplays...

If I didn't already have my badge and costumes set-up, I'd do it. But, it's not exciting to me, at least because I have no interest in the character designs or haven't read the manga or watched the anime.

Driving up to Seattle later today! Cosplays are done (or in Miku's case, everything is done except the leek... /sobs), panel is ready, some spam musubi is made, and all that's left is to do some minor packing and make a massive playlist for the 6 hour drive. xD I'm ready!

I'm on spring break in New York and everywhere I look, I think "ooh that'd be a good place for a photoshoot!"

Something is wrong with me XD

I got my cosplay group to hold our next meetup in a shopping center that has a yellow brick road. So I'm wearing Dorothy and getting pics of it.

Good Friday?
No, it better be Work-on-your-cosplay-Friday.
I have 6 bows to make, a bodice to shape, and other such things. Monday, the sale for the trim is on, so I can get the last (I hope) 8 metres or so of lace I need. And then we must work to complete this. Less than two months......

There's always the male Vocaloids.

Tomorrow I have to do something cosplay related. Even if it is just locate the orange shirt my mom is giving me to use for Mozaik Role Gumi. I need to remove the embroidered elephant on it. Well first I should see if it will fit me I guess.
