Cosplay | Elizabeth Comstock Part 1

Hi everyone, I’m so excited to share my newest cosplay photos, (yet another) Elizabeth Comstock from Bioshock Infinite! I first wore this outfit to Anime Boson, and have been waiting for it to get warmer to shoot these photos ever since.

Dress, jacket, necklace by me | corset purchased and altered
wig found on ebay | circle lenses from pinky paradise

Sam did such a great job capturing the spirt of Columbia in these, and I’m thrilled with how these came out. The sewing journey is going well, I actually re-made the jacket twice, but in the end I’m happy with it. I’m not a beginner sewer, but altering patterns is proving tricky. I’m hoping to create more complex pieces as the year goes on. Does anyone have any good sewing tutorials they can recommend?

I can’t wait to share part 2!

Also, if you’re interested in following along more of my cosplay journey, you can do so on my deviantart.

Anime Boston 2014

As you may know, this weekend I attended Anime Boston – and had a fantastic time! I only went on Saturday, but I know for next year to go for all three days!

These are some photos that were snapped at the convention – once the weather gets warmer, I can’t wait to shoot this costume. I have some great places in mind :)

Costume details: Jacket, skirt, and necklace were made by me. Corset was bought online, and altered by me. Wig & petticoat were also bought online. Contacts from Pinky Paradise.

The costumes were amazing. I was in awe all weekend by the amazing details that people put into their costumes – you can see some of the photos I took here. I’m hoping in the future to do some ‘cosplay round-up’ posts :)

What did you do this weekend?

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?

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…
