Cosplay in 2012
I originally wasn’t going to post this but I thought it would be good, if not for anything else, to see improvement (hopefully) next year.
This year was full of disappointments. I told myself I was going to have wonderful craftsmanship but due to time and money restraints that didn’t happen. It is a step up from previous costumes but I’m not really happy with any of my costumes. That being said here they are! I might even talk a bit about them.
Robin was my first “superhero” cosplay, I made the belt and cape but had to rush the rest of the costume and I had no idea what I was doing! I was never happy with the “bodysuit” portion and meant to redo it but never got around to it. I only wore it to one convention but I took plenty of photos in it!
Superboy, oh Superboy. This costume was a nightmare, I haven’t any clue as to why I decided to make a bodysuit like this with no pattern or experience. All in all I am a bit proud of it, even though now there are so many things I would have done differently. I absolutely plan on remaking this costume, I love being Conner so much. This is the only costumes in my 9 years of conventions that I’ve worn to two conventions!
These pictures aren’t in chronological order but next on our list is Wonder Woman! I have always wanted to be Wonder Woman. Since I was a child. I didn’t have a chance to make proper boots or get a proper wig but everything else I’m pretty pleased with! I ran through so many hardships like not being able to sew the fabric with my machine, so the entire top was handsewn and ended up being a little too big.
I love Miku Hatsune, I know that shes over done but I had a lot of fun in this school girl rendition. I even made a leek backpack!
Rarity was mostly a closet cosplay I just added some accessories and made my ears and horn. I loved being invited to Rini’s mlp group though!
Lastly Zack, I have done Zack before and it was awful! This time I did so much work! I custom dyed all the fabric and made all the patterns. My sword looks awful under that lighting and again so many things I would differently now!
That’s that! My cosplay year!
