Cosplay happiness chat

Just thought this would be a nice little thing we all can hop into every once in a while. We all can get a little bit stressed with it at times but I think it would be fun to spread the love as we go along and talk about both the big and little things that had recently made us happy with cosplay.

It can be anything from finding the right fabric to getting your dream cosplay group together ^^ Anything that makes you proud, excited, or just a little bit giggly!

To get the ball rolling, I have been internally screaming for the past few days. I have always wanted to cosplay Dagger from FF9 and managed to get my bf into the game. He wants to be my Zidane! Its a dream come true!

I LOVE when a group comes together!! We had a full Persona 5 group and it's my favourite video game franchise and I've only ever been envious of other countries getting full groups, my dear friends made my dream come true!

I also just really love /planning/ how to make things. I love learning and reading up on things. Though the actual making can be a bit dull and I wonder why I cosplay ahahaha xDD

I'm so happy your actual bf is willing to do Zidane with you! He's a keeper ;P

Oh my gosh it's the best feeling when you get a cosplay group together <3 Last year I got my dream of having a full Inner Senshi group (we even match our characters pretty well in terms of personality haha)

One of my happiest moments though was my partner agreeing to cosplay Kristoff to my Anna <3 We really must bust those cosplays out again soon c:

One of my favourite moments was at my first con, i was dressed as Toon Link and was just walking around (we had only just got in) and as im walking i hear a little kid shout " Mum look its Link!" i looked and saw this little boy also dressed as Link pointing at me. We had a photo and it was so sweet. Best way to start off going to cons i feel. ^_^ <3

I think my favourite moment is when you're working on your costume and there's that moment when you're suddenly like 'YES!', when your costume is finally coming together and you finally start to see that all of that effort and money was worth it xD

Just recently I attended MCM Manchester with a Overwatch Cosplay group, gotta say, it's been one of the most fun experiences I've had meeting others who love the craft and fandom as much as I do.

I had all the fabric for my BoS jumpsuit arrive. Just need the basic pattern, webbing, black tubing and been looking at sources for the random metal hardware.

Don't feel quite so awful about my foam build. Found some really useful videos and tips to make my work cleaner so that has been a relief.
