London Expo tomorrow, I'll be wearing my Princess Bubblegum and also my Asuka for the first time (like, I haven't tried the whole thing on because it's not finished, I've got some to finish today and my friend will cut the wig for me in the hotel) and I've got sooo many worries. The facepaint I'm using is hard to reapply evenly for Bubblegum, what if it starts rubbing off? What if Asuka doesn't look good on me?

Plus I've got all the usual image/body image woes, I'm terrified about wearing my Asuka since the skirt is sorta short for my standards and it shows quite a bit of leg and my legs are the part of my body I'm most insecure about excluding the face... ;___;

Advice, anybody? Anybody else going?


Also, bringing this back since I didn't seem to get any answers...

I've wanted to cosplay Rin from Kodomo No Jikan (It's uh... a lolicon, sorta infamous) for a long time and always put the idea off because I thought it would be a bad idea to cosplay from a series like that. But I really do love Rin and I'd love to cosplay as her, I'm going to invest in a sukumizu too and it reminded me of how I'd love to do Rin's sukumizu outfit. I'd probably wear that one only for photoshoots and do one of her more covered outfits for a con or something though.

I was thinking maybe I should wait until I was 18 to cosplay from the show due to it's nature, but I'm 17 so really that's not too far away.

What do you guys think? Is it a bad idea?

In my opinion, you're old enough to cosplay it if you want to. As far as cosplaying from an infamous show...well, I personally would not cosplay from anything that can be labeled as porn, simply because I do not want to risk meeting really bad creepers. Still, a lot of shows have that in-between line called ecchi, and even some of the best series include it- and if I watched one and loved one of the characters from that, I'd probably wait until I'm a bit older and then go and do it.

I say that you go for it, but also be aware there may be creepy fans and have a plan to get away from them. It'd probably be best to have buddy with you if you do, just for safety.

Ugh - in recovery from surgery this week, which is hitting me a lot harder than I expected. So I've been slowly coloring my husband's wig for a gender-bend Celestia costume.

And, gleefully, my silk swatches /finally/ came in. They are amazing looking - 15 little swatches of various shades of white, silver, and pale blues. So glad I ordered the swatches, they didn't look at all like they did on the website, the colors are so much stronger and varied.

@AnimeLuxray25: Everything looks super great^^

I am like the last person to read FMA. Seriously. But now that I am reading it, I am super in love! For the first time ever, my instinct was to cosplay a girl from the series. I REALLY want to be Izumi~

Also super mega ulta excited because volleyball tryouts are the week after Otakon~ I am literally so happy right now!

My Felicita wig (aka my last wig I get to order this year :'( ) came in today! Not as long as I thought it would be, but then again it would be a bit harder to take care of haha xD But now I gotta cut and style it!

Good news: My friend cut my Virgil wig for me, so Virgil is ready for otakon! 8D

Less than good news: my friend keeps giving me Sailor Moon/codename Sailor V feels and is making me want to cosplay Kaito Ace. Maybe if I can go to the cherry blossom festival with my friends next year...

Essi's sleeves are fully done!
I have the collar cuff ready, though it came out a bit too big so I might remake it...And I have the chest/neck thing all sewn on, now all I need to do is try it on and sew the upper parts so they fit like they're supposed to, then sew on the collar.
And she'll be all done! Ahah, I'm so excited to be almost finished.
And I have tights for her now, that I can also use for Hipster!Russia. I love things that I can reuse for other cosplays, makes life so much easier.

I ended up getting to go to Sally's today! So I got lipliner for Grell's eyebrows, and did a full makeup test for him. (well, almost full. Still have to figure out fake eyelashes)
I don't mean to sound cocky, but I'm surprised at how good of a Grell I actually am. I expected myself to be the WORST, but I'm not too bad. I do still need to work on getting the eyebrows more symmetrical, but I was also in a hurry to test it all out, too. I also can't believe he's almost done. I have to find a pair of shoes for him, get some more paint for the chainsaw, and order the costume..then he's done. My first technical dream cosplay will be done. <3 Then we start working on other versions, of course XD

I'm also still wondering how to break the news to my homophobic parents that he's a psycho chainsaw-wielding perverted transvestite...I'm terrified to learn their reaction to that one XD

Thank you! And I haven't read FMA yet, so you're only the second to last person! \0/

I have two 2 ounce jars of fabric paint and I know I need far more for painting some boots, gauntlets and a belt. I just don't know how much I do need though since I am thinking of getting it in a gallon size container.

Oh. my. Goodness. I could've been at Florida Anime Experience hours ago now. I've missed like four panels I wanted to see. Why are my sister and mom taking so long? ;_;

Woo! Got a Rainbow Dash base wig for a mere $30 in the dealer's room. I want to do a cheap summer-friendly version for next year, and the wig was being a real p.i.t.a to figure out how to get a decent one cheaply OR how to make my own, and in the style I wanted. So, woo! And since this is con money, it's technically no extra out of my pocket.

Me and my Anon have planned to do a genderbent version of Essi and Anon in the future~ ouo
We talked to Zeiva (Mirage) about it and she's totally excited about it and is giving us the creative liberty to design them how we want >3< As long as male Essi is perverted and female Anon is tsundere.
I already have Essi's planned out and I can use it as an excuse to get an Arda wig, Hansel is perfect. And I get to buy a nice vest...
We now have so many future cosplays planned, I have no idea if my cosplay list can handle them all, I'm so excited!
