Now, for those of you who don't know what cosplay is, according Wikipedia, it is " short for "costume play." [Cosplay is] type of performance art in which participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea." Some popular sources of cosplay come from anime, manga, sci-fi, fantasty, video games, and films. Some people will take it to a level of awesome where they act out their part as well, but for me, I just like the dressing up part. :)
Here are some pics of a few of my favorites, just to give you a good idea:
Odette from The Swan Princess
Emily from The Corpse Bride
Ganondorf from Legend of Zelda
Korra from The Legend of Korra
Giselle from Enchanted
Peter Pan and the lost boys
Dot from Reboot
Mai from Avatar the Last Airbender
Astrid from How to Train Your Dragon
And here it is:
My most exciting project for the year:
From My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!
I am sooooooo excited!!! I didn't really understand what the hype was about this show, and why there was such a huge fan-base for it, until I started watching it a couple weeks ago. I'm hooked, and I love the show. It's cute, but also very, very funny!
It's kind of funny though. My favorite pony tends to be Rarity, but for some reason, I really wanted to cosplay Rainbow Dash instead. Must be that awesome hair of hers... ;)
Anyway, I have some great ideas for my costume, so I'll be posting my progress here on the blog every now and then.
Also, Kessie and Brandon are in on this as well! (Seriously, I have THE SWEETEST husband EVER! He knew I really wanted to do this one, so he said he would join in, and I promised I would 1.) Make his costume looks awesome 2.) Not make him wear a wig, ears, or wings. Which I'm totally fine with). I wanted us all to match, so Kessie will be Scootaloo and Brandon is going to be Soarin', one of the Wonderbolts. This. Is. Going. To. ROCK!!!! :D
So here's my wig I just ordered. (Click on the picture to see where I got each item from. That way, if you're looking to make your own, this can help you find what I found!)
It should be here in about a month, so I'll have a picture of me trying it on and see what it looks like. :)
Plus I just ordered these as well, for both me and Brandon.
I got the jacket in the mail today, but it's a little big, so we'll see if I can exchange it for a smaller size.
And here's a baseball tee to go underneath. I'm planning on putting Rainbow Dash's cutie mark on the front. :)
