MARTELL ☀ UNBOWED, UNBENT, UNBROKEN

Got those pictures back from that impromptu photoshoot from the convention a few weeks ago! I’m so impressed, I might have to book a shoot with him for real! O:

whalegomoo: Sailor moon !!!!! Hehe

I want to cosplay her so badly! It’s my dream to make her first seifuku from the manga! I will definitely be making her eventually! As long as I get a better wig than this one, anyway…

Day one of recovering from Edmonton Expo…
I was so busy, I hardly took any pictures over the weekend! I didn’t buy many things, but I did do a lot of walking. I’m still sore, haha. I just wore lolita on the Saturday, but I cosplayed Merrill on Sunday. I almost wish I cosplayed Merrill on Saturday instead, there were so many Dragon Age cosplayers!

The Dragon Age Inquistion panels were really nice and I was surprised that they released some new info and images exclusively at the con (at the time)! The Mass Effect panel was a bit more of a Q&A than anything which I was a bit sad about, but it was still enjoyable! I had a lot of conversations with people from Bioware, including Fernando Melo and many others. I really liked how they were so approachable and really liked listening to fans blabble about what they’re excited for and what they love about the series.

I finally met Teadrunktailor! She is so friendly and nice, haha. I think I may have met her before at Calgary Expo, but it must have been very brief or something. Her Dragonlance cosplay is amazing! I’m still so impressed by the construction. I’m just blown away by how crisp and well done the seams and weathering are! I wish I had a chance to see her Loghain close up so I could see the details with that one, haha. 

I also met Listlesswarrior,who is so sweet! Her Anders is just wonderful and she was so fun to chat with! Her costume had so many little things that made it perfect, including a Ser Pounce-a-lot!! The staff was also very neat and looks so identical to the one in game! 

I found it very funny that the three of us cosplayed three of the most misunderstood characters in the series, haha. Later on the Sunday I had a photographer completely go crazy over my Merrill costume. I’ve never met anyone else who loves her that much! He offered a free photoshoot, which I am so happy about. I can’t wait to see the photos! I really enjoyed meeting everyone new and seeing old friends as well! I spent almost all of Sunday with my babes Liz & Emily, which I will gladly do again, haha. (Can’t wait for Calgary Expo!)

I thoroughly enjoyed this weekend. The con was much nicer and hugely improved since the first year, but there is still a lot they can improve on - namely the artist alley and weapons/prop policy! I think next year I may just go exclusively on the Saturday but we’ll see.

I just realized now that I haven’t shared this photo from a photoshoot months ago! I was a huge derp and completely forgot my elf ears for this shoot, so I guess this is an AU where Merrill is human? I really need to work on fixing this costume for this weekend.

One more shot of my Usagi cosplay!

My Usagi wig’s buns exploded, and without the right items to repair it, I had no choice but to buy a blue wig from the vendor’s hall. Instant Ami cosplay!

Had so much fun at Animethon this weekend!

I was Usagi for Saturday and some of Sunday. I couldn’t help it, I had to have a little fun with the ladies at Starbucks.

For some reason today, I got really nostalgic over my second ever cosplay. Philia Felice, Tales of Destiny. I made this forever and a half ago and thank god my skills have improved since.

It’s really embarrassing to look at, but at the same time I’m really proud of my past self for how well the belt turned out as well as my first try with applique! (and fabric dye but that never turns out well for me)

I’m thinking about remaking this costume again. I’ll actually be able to do it proper too, haha.

I was practicing for my Merrill cosplay ask blog and oh my gosh, my cat is a twisted creature.

Just finished editing all my Animethon photos. I really wish I had got my dress finished, it would look much better than this one, haha.
