I am a cosplayer and artist, armed with a needle and thread. Here I will share my progress and achievements!

Feel free to ask anything, even if you just want to talk! I am far more afraid of you than you are of me.

whoA HANNAH YOU LOOK AMAZING. 

Allie is a camera goddess.

Thank you to charismaticalpaca for snapping some lovely headshots of my Marie cosplay!  I hadn’t worn this one in over a year, so I’m glad I had the opportunity to on Sunday of Matsuricon!

The final progress shots on the sword I made for Haru.  Hopefully I will be less afraid of making props in the future!  I cranked through the last few steps of sculpting and sealing without taking pictures, so it’s pretty much just the paint job, heh heh.  Thank you to charismaticalpaca for helping with painting the night before the con! Here’s the previous WIP stuff.

Do you havve a favorite coplay to wear?

This changes cONSTANTLY, but currently it’s Haru. ^^  Being a part of the Free! fandom at a con is always an amazing experience.

Do you have aany tips for a beginner cosplayer?

Cosplay characters you love!  I guarantee you will have a hundred times more fun that way, and you’ll be happier when wearing it. 

Also, try not to feel discouraged when seeing other people cosplaying the same character.  No matter how obscure I have thought I was being, it happens every time, it’s crazy!  It used to get me really down, or feeling like I was being compared, but when you think about how that other person went through all the effort to be that character, too, you realize they probably love that character just as much as you do.  What’s not to love about that? 

I could go on for days on this, but that’s probably already more than you wanted, and these were things I remembered from when I started out. 8’D  Hope that helps!

How many cons have you been to?

I have been to 23 conventions!  Yikes, when did that happen?

Guess what’s finally up- the  final part of our Glass City Con vlogs! <3  With that, friendcon is complete, and I am moving on to Matsuricon shenanigans.

And here are some of the fabulous costumes we saw over the weekend! Being chained to a table meant missing out on some photos (saw a few I really wanted photos of, but they were too far away - though we did yell down the Duo and Deathscythe, lol), but these folks were pretty fantastic. We loved seeing you all! (That Koffing made me laugh so hard, lol.)

Feel free to let me know if you’re in any of these and want to be tagged!
