Raquel - Scrapped Princess


AmeCon 2007





Me and my sister wanted to cosplay this series, not only cos it's great, but cos Raquel and Pacifica are adopted sisters, while we're REAL sisters (ha-huack!) Unfotunately it wasn't until after the convention that I thought about how boring the costume really is. Plus not many people seemed to know the series, which was a bit sad.

Also I don't know what it was about me and looking ROUGH that weekend ... there's not many pictures up because for the most part I looked like a mongrel who'd been thrown in a pond, dragged through a thistle bush and died a month ago. *sigh*

The costume was simple apart from the shoulders - we made them out of roll mats (those things campers sleep on) and it took quite a while to get them the right sizer and shape (even vaguely) with plenty of glue-gun blisters to show for it!

My pride and joy of this cosplay I'm not actually wearing lol. My sister bought a blonde wig and tried cutting it ... which went disasterously wrong. So she bought another and I spend hours wefting (sp?) the bollocked one onto the new one, sticking the plait headband together and gluing the side locks into curls! For the second year running my sister is sporting my best work on her head...

What sucked about this costume was the earrings. I don't have mine pierced, so I bought clip-ons and my sister modded them. THEY HURT. The metal dug in and left marks on my ears (altho not perminant). Bastard things :'(
