I’m so excited to share with you my latest costume, Princess Peach! I made her Amiibo dress for PAX East 2016. I actually made a different Peach for last year’s PAX – but I cut it short into a cocktail dress because my skills just weren’t there yet.
If you told me a year ago that I would be able to create her gorgeous ball gown, I wouldn’t have believed you. That just goes to show that the more you practice and create, the better you’ll get! I need to remember this little fact a lot more in life.
Click under the cut for a full walkthrough (with photos!) on how I made this costume: (more…)
I’ve shared my Noragami love before, and I really am a huge fan, so making this Hiyori costume was like a dream. I (foolishly) thought it would be easy to make (hint: it wasn’t), but I ended up learning a few techniques along the way!
These were all taken at Anime Boston 2016.
Continue on for details on how I made the costume.
Hello everyone! As you know I went to Anime Boston a few weeks ago, and I made my first vlog! If you’ve been a reader for a while you’ll know that I’ve never once made a video, so this is a big change for me! One of my blog goals for 2016 was to create video, so it’s better late than never in getting started, right?
This video shows a pretty typical con experience for me – mostly, derping around in costume and doing some photoshoots.
One of the highlights of the con was meeting my friend Ashley for a Sailor Moon shoot – I always love meeting others into the same series and shows that I am.
There were also a lot of Love Live hype going on at the con, and there were so many Love Live cosplayers there, myself included! I was also able to pose (again!) with that giant Free! poster. Woo-hoo.
I’d love your feedback on the whole con-recap-vlog idea! I already know I’ll be trying to stabilize the camera more & get more hall footage, but I want to hear from you! So, question: if I continue to do convention recaps, what would you like to see more of?
