Cosplay | Bioshock Infinite: Elizabeth

I’m excited to share one of my 2014 cosplays with you, Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea!

The whole process of shooting these was…a process. I’m not used to shooting in such a public place (Foxwoods Casino), so that was something to get used to. I’m really pleased with the results, though! The costume itself was pretty easy to make, just an altered blouse, a pencil skirt and embellishments here and there.

You also can’t exactly tell in these photos, but I’m wearing a wig and bright blue contacts! I probably won’t be wearing this to any conventions, but I’ll definitely be wearing the individual pieces to work!

This weekend I’ll be away at Anime Boston wearing yet another version of this character (I swear I do have other costumes…). I’m so excited! Is anyone else going? If not, do you have any plans for this first weekend in Spring?

Cosplays 2014

Planned Cosplays 2014

After I haphazardly pulled together my Elizabeth Comstock Cosplay for RI Comic Con, I think it gave me cosplay fever! You’ll be seeing quite a bit more from me in this area in the coming year.

Planned 2014 cosplays:

  • Elizabeth Comstock, Older [Bioshock Infinite]
  • Elizabeth DLC [Bioshock: Burial at Sea]
  • Alice Liddell, Siren [Alice: Madness Returns]
  • Asami Sato [Legend of Korra]
  • Caitlyn, Sheriff of Piltover [League of Legends]

I can’t wait to share these costumes, and their progress, with you this year! I got a sewing machine for Christmas, and am already sewing up a storm (I used to sew all the time a few years ago, but stopped when I moved). Elizabeth DLC is done, and I’m working on older Elizabeth currently. It’s such a great way to get better at sewing, and one of my resolutions is to attend more conventions throughout the year.

Does anyone else cosplay? Or know these characters? Since I’m still a novice, I’d love to hear your tips and stories! I’ll be attending the following events…if you’re planning on going to any of these, let me know!

  • Anime Boston, March 21-23
  • PortCon Maine, June 19-22
  • ConnictiCon, July 10-14
  • Boston Comic Con, August 8-10
  • Granite State Comic Con, September 13-14
  • Rhode Island Comic Con, Oct 31-Nov 1

What I Wore: Elizabeth Comstock Cosplay

This weekend, I attended RI Comic Con, and dressed as Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite (remember when I confessed I was obsessed?) It was SO much fun – I think I’m going to be cosplaying more!

Sam took these photos this weekend, and they turned out amazing – we found this great building in a small New England town…the town is even paved red, white, and blue. How Columbia is that?

Has anyone else cosplayed before? There are some seriously amazing cosplayers out there before, it’s a whole new world outside of the regular outfit posts! I hope I can explore this more in the future…
