What an amazing and satisfying project this was! This costume project was such a blast to create, dwell upon, draft, and execute in the period of my spare time of a month. And I am definitely grateful that I have started this project when I did, so that I may be as intricate as I wanted. I think it paid off.
So this is the costume in its entirety. I was Scarecrow from the DC game Arkham Asylum, but made it into more of a Victorian style costume. So tht is why the mask is more of a plague mask.
The Comikaze convention that I attended was a blast. I enjoyed having my picture taken, being interviewed, and, of course, meeting a lot of really awesome and wonderful people along the way. I already have so many ideas for my next intricate costume!
Over the next few days, I will post closer images of the leather props that I created for this.
I have never really cosplayed before. I never thought it was strange, or anything like that, but it had never, for some reason, occurred to me that I could dress up into something cool or someone that I really liked in a movie or a show.
I was playing around with one of my first costumes that I have done. A lazy way of making a Quorra costume from Tron: Legacy. I loved her character, and I love Olivia Wilde even more, so why not make it? I had bought reflective tape (to make it look like the costume was glowing), and with the help of staring at all the reference pictures of her, I had taped it onto black clothing. The adhesive wasn’t strong enough to stick to the clothing, and even fabric glue couldn’t hold it on very well. What a shame.
But this certainly won’t be my last cosplay attempt at all. Even if it didn’t work out very well, and I ended up scrapping that entire project all together, I would like to go back to the drawing board and attempt this costume again. Probably after sewing a body suit and using LED lights to actually have my costume light up.
