|Minamicon 8. Okay, I have no shame so I'm putting up all my costumes (will find pics later!) Unlike a lot of people nowadays where their first costumes are damn amazing, I like to look back and laugh hysterically at mine. If anything, my older costumes showed me what *not* to do! Lina was my first ever costume, being an absolutely massive fan of Slayers (and happy to have found a main heroine famous for being short, angry and having small boobs :P) I decided I've love to make her. Not wanting to cosplay alone I managed to convince my best friend Amy that she wanted to be my tall, big breasted side-kick and cosplay Nahga. Only took 3 maths lessons ;) |
The trousers were bought and dyed the right(ish :P) colour, boots and belts were charity shop finds and her top was an awesome find by my friend when hunting through H&M. The red clock was th first thing I ever tried to sew and it was hilarious, my mum helped me to do the black cloak seeing as I'd never seen a sewing machine in my life and was going to just wrap black fabric around myself.
The beads and gems are all paper balls with nail varnish, and all the rest of the armour was made out of upholstery foam and spray painted.
We do not speak of the wig.
Fun was had, and I have plans to remake her outfit now I've learned how to sew and make things that aren't completely made out of squidgey foam ;)
