So it’s officially been a years since I’ve officially started cosplaying. What a year. I’ve been to three conventions this year,and I’ve done cosplay at all of them.Since I’ve been back I’ve attended, AWA, DragonCon, and Nerdacon. I ended and began my cosplay season at AWA.
Let’s talk about my first cosplay.
So while I was in Korea,I actually got the dress and scarf for my Bulma cosplay,but I decided to wait until I got back home to actually do it.I didn’t know how I’d be perceived being a black cosplayer in Korea,so I decided to wait. I was dedicated to being the best Buu Saga Bulma ,ever. I even bought a scouter while I was vacationing in Japan(yes it yells sayings from Sayians in Japanese :P). I had a lot of fun finding everything. Actually I had more fun getting the things for the cosplay,than actually wearing them.
Regardless of the time I put in making the shoes,I didn’t feel great about that cosplay. I realize now that while I was wearing it, I was letting people reaction determine how I felt about it. Rather than me loving it because it was awesome.The next day I did what is probably still my favorite cosplay.
My Steampunk Cheshire.
I spent like a month(or two) making the tail,out of yarn,I followed this awesome tutorial from Zullala. And it’s probably still the most rewarding thing I’ve ever made. Not just that, I bought necomimis and yellow contacts.I mean like it will probably always be my favorite cosplay.Group cosplays are definitely my favorite way of doing cosplay. It was with this cosplay I realized the key to having a good cosplay is having fun with it.Nothing else really matters.Rather if a hundred people ask for my picture or no one.FUN is the number one thing that you need to make sure you have when cosplaying.
After my first few cosplays
So far I’ve been Clar(k)a Kent,Billy Cranston, Alice,and Jubilee.You’re probably wondering where the rest of my pictures are.Well to be honest when I do a solo cosplay I kinda get to distracted with the con,but don’t worry I’ll take some pictures in December.
So as of now I don’t know if I’ll be doing any more cosplays this year but I doubt it.So I have to decide which cosplays to bring with me to Colombia.I really loved my Jubilee and I’m thinking about fixing my Bulma wig and giving it another spin.I’m also considering do a Luffy cosplay if I can make the vest before I leave.I already have the hat and sandals…
I’m not entirely sure what cosplays I’ll do next but they’ll be awesome,and even better.
I’ve got a lot of choices,as do you,
Have an awesome day
