Okay so honestly I was bitten a while ago by the cosplay bug but I've finally decided to really run with it. Until now everything has been modified pieces of clothing I own or can find in stores or even just clothes I have, like my Luna Lovegood in regular clothes that I wore for the midnight premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2, which I REALLY wish I'd have gotten pics of because it actually turned out really cute but now I'd have to get a wig (the dangers of ever-changing hair colors) and I wouldn't fit in the clothes anymore, especially now with the baby bump, haha. Plus I wish I'd have gotten better pics of my Ravenclaw school outfit and even the Rebellious Ravenclaw that I did for Nan Desu Kan last year.
For being a photographer you would think I would be more concerned about getting good photos of such things, huh? In fact I need to remake the fake lashes for my NDK cosplay I made this year before I change my haircolor again, haha. (I did get a few shots though which I'll share with my NDK wrap-up post)
For years I've been trying to really get into cosplay and failing, largely because I'm
a procrastinator queen of the procrastinators and tend to wait until the last minute for everything so things always fall apart. In fact, I've been working on my Neo-Queen Serenity cosplay for almost 2 years now and still haven't gotten past having my wig half done (mostly because I didn't realize I need TWO wigs to correctly modify it and create one wig, haha). So now I've decided to start working little bit by little bit all year long in order to get things done. Plus it's not like I can just run out and buy this, that and the other all the time because I have a family that comes first (not at all complaining, js).
So from now on, I'll try to post on my progress and I'll be keeping tabs on what cosplays I'm working on and how far I am with each one with the little cosplay section over there. ---->
I'll also probably add a page to the blog of cosplays I'd like to do, which is a long list I'll have to add to over time. Not to mention always finding new kickass characters that I want to cos so it'll always be growing faster than anything will be completed because my goal is only to finish one cosplay a year. If I finish more, awesome, but for now one a year seems more than enough.
