Fun With Cosplay

Now that I have a taste for fan cons, I’ve decided to step up my cosplay game. Con of Thrones was my first stab at it, and I have to say I was pretty happy with what I came up with.

The problem with that costume was that I had to carry a sign, because my character was book-only and I was afraid no one would know who I was. Still and all I made the dress myself. It could have been worse. I think the bling pulled it all together.

There are other cons coming up so I’m going to take a stab at some more costumes. My ultimate goal is to do Maeve Millay from Westworld. If I can pull that off I’ll be really pleased. In the meantime I’m learning how to make a few simpler pieces so I can build up to the challenge.

This is what I’m working on right now. The skirt is inspired by my imaginary girlfriend Janelle Monae. When it’s finished I’ll look just like her, only 15 years older and 20 pounds fatter. You know, give or take.

  1. I think the bling is stellar! Maeve Millay: she is awesome, and that’ll be awesome. And you missed her at Comic-Con in San Diego. 😦 I only know this because Logan was there, and I sort of follow one of his fanpages on Facebook… did I just admit that out loud? Oopz.

  2. That would be amazing! Her costumes are so intricate though. Do you have to make the costumes yourself with Cosplay? I bet you could find something great online or in a second hand store that you could alter a little.
