I have a secret interest that I don’t get to do often, and that is making subtly nerdy clothes that kind of fly under the radar, unless you get the reference.
Since I spent so much time getting the designs down for Ezio, I made an embroidered skirt with the same designs~
The fabric is also leftover from cosplay (Deep Sea Girl!Miku I did super long ago)
Have I ever expressed my love for found-object cosplay? Because I really love creative problem solving like this, it makes my life so much easier.
Anyway, Ruby’s pouch!
I really wanted to avoid the shower cap look at all costs, so I ended up doing a two-piece instead of gathering a one-piece.
I was going to do a rim, but then I didn’t want the rim to show when the beret was being worn, so I didn’t attach a rim at all. (Hey, it won’t show if it’s not even there, right?)
Fortunately for me, this fabric doesn’t fray. But if you have a fraying fabric, I encourage you to at least bias tape the rim XD
PSA: RED is going to Sakuracon!
And I have pretty minimal experience with north american cons!
I would love to meet up with people and make some new cosplay friends, but before that, I have pretty minimal knowledge of cosplay etiquette in the United States. Can someone give me a quick run-down?
Is it okay to take public transit to the con in cosplay, or are there spaces at the con center provided for changing and makeup? Are the cosplayers confined to a certain area, or are we allowed to roam around everywhere? (I have also heard these mystic rumors of big meetups for cosplayers from the same fandom. How do I get a foot in that? XD)
I am planning to cosplay with one of my friends here (who also has minimal experience with cons), and the current plans are:
Ezio and Leo from ACII
Shouma and Kanba from Mawaru Penguindrum
Sleepy Quail (Nanaki) and Murderous Partridge (Shuu) from Hatoful Boyfriend
Please message me if you’re interested in meeting up!
So close to wearable. I mean, it’ll still only be a ~70% done costume, but it should be recognizable.
I stenciled and painted the pattern onto the black shirt while my very craftsy friend made me a crown when I panicked at her and was like OH GOD I CAN’T DO THIS. Then she helped me mark the skirt so I could properly hem it… I’ll just have to be careful that my shoes aren’t visible in photos since I’m wearing another costume’s heels.
My mom helped me mark the back of the bodice that I added hook-and-eye tape to for closures. I boned the side-seams and then, uh. Colored in the bronze trim because I fucked up and don’t have the right stuff and night before con I can’t be fussed.
I still need to style my wig when I get up, but I’m okay with my cape being wonky as long as it stays on my shoulders andddd we’ll see how it goes tomorrow!
