I have been busy working on dolls and making a new costume so I am a little behind on sharing my other A-kon costumes so here they are. As I probably have mentioned a million times, Sakizo is one of my favorite artists and I have cosplayed 6 of her designs so far. I keep telling myself it is time to step away and do something different but I keep finding new artworks that are just so inspiring. I have quite an obsession with corsets, ruffles, and all the intricate details. They are just so much fun to create so I do predict a few more in my future cosplays.
As with all my cosplays, I tend to not be accurate but rather do my own interpretation of the design. I am not one to follow rules and often have my own vision of each character. Plus I like to work with fabrics and pieces that I already have on hand to keep cost down.
For more of my costumes please feel free to follow my cosplay page. You can also follow all of my art here.
A-kon 26 is over and while I am feeling a little bummed that I work so hard on my costumes only to wear them for a short weekend, I try to remember to keep optimistic about my upcoming events. Mechacon, although not as big or exciting as A-kon, is only a month away. I am working on a new costume (Sandstorm Katarina from LOL) and I also plan to rewear my Rydia again so I am happy about that. I believe so far this was my favorite costume that I have made and worn. It was such an exciting experience to finally create it and bring Rydia to life.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get to take as many pictures as I wanted but plan to do a better, more fitting photoshoot soon. I always find it hard to get the best images when the conventions are so packed (always people in the way or most of the interesting spots are taken). I absolutely loved Rydia on the stairs at the Hilton Anatole however every time we would get to snap a picture, a million people would start walking and we would have to move but I am at least happy we got one shot. Anyway, definitely a more interesting, magical photoshoot coming soon.
If interested I do have a Facebook page I have made dedicated to my costumes and WIP. You can find me here.
