Tekkoshocon 2011: This costume went over really well, and I was really happy with how all the handpainted details on the bodice and skirt came out. I need to do a bit of altering before bringing her out again for Colossalcon, but I'm super excited to have elycium  dressing up as my Mother Gothel.

Hopefully between now and Colossalcon I'll have some more photos when the weather clears up.

I had a lot of fun with cosplay's this year.  I made a TON of new friends and had such a great time.

Midna was a blast to wear, and being painted blue is a fun experience. (Tekkoshocon 2009)

Mai was a fun cosplay, and was a first real attempt at styling a wig. (Tekkoshocon, KuroKiiro Festival 2009)

Yoko was a BLAST to wear. I'll hopefully have my gun finished when I do her other versions :) (Colossalcon 2009)

I got my wig for my Odette cosplay in the mail the other day, I'm just waiting to get pictures done and she'll be added.

Without further ado.....Cosplay's for 2009-In Retrospect.

Ug, sorry if some of you see this twice, it wasn't showing up on my friends page/some of my other friends pages so i'm reposting.

Wow, its been like forever since i've updated my journal, boo for school taking over my life XD

Somehow over the last week i've found some time to do some sewing, which feels amazing since I feel like I actually accomplished something instead of just being frustrated over it.

For halloween i've decided, after viewing breathlessaire's verson of Odette from the Swan Princess, http://www.cosplay.com/costume/174207/ and the fact that I LOVE the Swan Princess and have wanted to do this cosplay FOREVER, that I would be Odette as well.

My outfit isn't totally finished, I still have to do the sleeves, but I think it looks pretty good for the moment, what do you think? Don't mind my lack of wig, that still needs work too, or the poopiness of pictures.

I'm super excited for Halloween :D All the costumes i've seen so far when i've checked on people's LJ updates look totally awesome!

Sorry for a short update, but i'll hopefully be updating again soon :D
