So I’ve been doing all that boring cosplay stuff that no one wants to see pictures of lately. Then my sewing machine broke down. But today I got a new machine and it’s really pretty. I also got the little computer for Monkey Joe. My Squirrel Girl is rocking my socks right now. I’m looking forward to playing with my machine now and finishing this cosplay up for Fandomfest next week.

Just dancing around in my almost completely adjusted fur onesie for your entertainment.

Procrastinating like nothing else, but look at my squirrel!

It’s the week following a big convention for me and it completes a year of trying to advance myself as a cosplayer. That year started a year ago at Colossalcon where I debuted the final version of my Thor cosplay. It’s good to look back and remember where I came from and look to the future of where I want to be. The sky is the limit with cosplay and even if our skills are where we want them to be today, they might be where we want a year from now. Keep trying and keep pushing yourself because I promise you can do anything. You’re all amazing. Believe in yourself and your cosplay.  #tbt

Awh Katie. That’s so fucking awesome! (I figured it’d be appropriate to call you by your first name because, well.. You know.)

You little freakazoid. Thanks. :)

Working on Squirrel Girl. Monkey Joe has been trimmed and painted to look more realistic and appear better in photos. Wig is styled. I should probably work on the body suit again.

Send me questions or whatever!

Since I’m busy working on the boring bits of cosplay (hand-stitching and looking for pieces I need) and that’s not interesting to blog about, I’m here for you guys to answer questions, offer advice or whatever. Just send me an ask or fan mail or comment below. I love you guys for supporting me, so I’m here to return the favor.

I'm done.

I wrote something with rationalizations, justifications, and defenses against misinformation but deleted it, because I realized it doesn’t really matter. What does is how I feel: my perspective has changed after this week on the world of cosplay. I will keep doing “make believe” costumes and…

So sad. I wish this community realized their own hypocrisy. Jessica and Heroes of Cosplay have inspired me so much and then I see the community I’m supposed to love and feel accepted in do this.

I have been seriously lacking in updates lately. I was in the UK and since I got back I was just trying to get stuff done. But stuff! I have the Squirrel Girl bodysuit almost done (I drafted the pattern even). I’m also working on a Benjamin Bunny cosplay and his tam is partially done. I should be finishing that up this week. His ears will be made out of leftovers from Squirrel Girl so it might be a little while until that cosplay is truly up and running.

Also, there’s the weird squirrel thing. I bought a plush squirrel to be my Monkey Joe for Squirrel Girl and he was much goofier and cartoony than expected. So I’m working on altering him by trimming fur around his eyes and face and I’ll be hand dyeing him in places too to give him dimension and realism.
