• Cosplay update – Let’s get down to Business!

Hey guys! I know I haven’t posted in a while, and that’s because I’ve been taking a hiatus from cosplay while I got my life sorted out. Finally I know what I’m doing with my education, I’m getting awesome work experience, and I was just asked to be an assistant costume designer for a theater production. Life is good, and that means my hiatus is over, and it’s time to bust out some more cosplay!

• Future Cosplay Plans

Alright, so I’ve been planning a lot of articles to go up in the Articles Tab, and I’ve been using a lot of my future cosplay plans to help decide what I want to write about. I don’t want to publish articles until I get some good detailed pictures of the processes I’ll be writing about, so I want to wait until these Future Cosplays become Current Cosplays before the posts go live. Instead of posting some half-finished articles, I wanted to help organize my future cosplay plans both for myself, and for people to give me feedback on what I should do, and write about, soonest. Here is a list of the next 7 (SEVEN, Count ’em!) cosplays I hope to do! Img from Google

• Deus Ex Gender-Bend Jensen and Malik – Planning Stages

I got Deus Ex: Human Revolution for my birthday this last May, and after playing through it, I got really into the fashion of the game. I love the idea of making Jensen’s coat, but tailored to my body, which lead to the idea of doing a  Jensen cosplay. At first I wanted to make an Adam Jensen costume for my boyfriend to wear, but after a lot of discussion, my boyfriend (who doesn’t cosplay), let on that he’d be more into doing a Male Malik costume, and that I could make a Jensen outfit for myself. The costume is still in it’s planning stages, and I’m collecting the materials to start work, but I’m going to post some of the cool source pictures I found, and lay out my general plans for how these two costumes will go down!

• Twin Links Redux – Start to Finish

So around December I started thinking about what I would wear to Sakuracon ’13. My sister and I haven’t been to a con together since Kumoricon ’11, and Twin Links had been firmly retired in that time. Since we both managed to have the time off for spring break, I decided to get to work planning a twin costume for us, and I just kept landing back on Links. We discussed moving on to Twilight Princess Links of Skyward Sword Links, but both of us still hold a special place in our hearts for Ocarina of Time. We decided to upgrade the expense, design and detail of our previous costumes, and try to stay a little closer to the source material than we did back in 2008-2011. Continue reading
