Costume Information

Worn on Saturday morning/early afternoon of Expo.

I have decided that I really enjoy the character Penelope Garcia or Wonderful as she is known in Criminal Minds, and thought it would be great to cosplay her. :3 I think that it would be good to have crazy outfits little gadgets and quirky things. I am looking forward to working on her. Not sure if I'll cosplay her at an event as of yet, but look here for more information. :3

Thanks guys. I was there on the Saturday pushing around a wheelchair. :) Didn't get any pictures of her though. :( Her shoes killed me. :(

Hi! I was looking at your journal and I saw that you bought your wig from Wig Fever, and I was wondering if it was of good quality, because their wigs are fairly inexpensive and that tends to affect the quality.

MCM Expo (Posted 12th June 2011)

Well MCM has come and gone. Shame I didn't get any pictures of Garcia at the convention, however she did make a small face appearance in a video. Hoping to do a shoot soon with her so I can get some pictures to put up here. Maybe next time I'll have a fluffy pen with me. :3

But it was good being her Saturday either way. :)

WIG ARRIVAL!! (Posted 30th April 2011)

Wig arrived today! :D So happy! It looks so pretty! Also my yellow bangle arrived too for her costume! :D Just waiting for my money to go in on Monday next week and then I'm ordering the material and shoes! :D So excited. Also think I may need to invest in some new glasses too for her! :D Will do a wig test one day this week. :3 But so happy! :D YAY!

WIG!!!!1 (Posted 10th April 2011)

Ok so I have now purchased the wig, and the material is in my basket on ebay. :) The seller keeps relisting it so I'm ok to leave it for a while, as I don't really have the money for another 2 weeks. But the wig was VERY important/ :3 So happy!! Can't wait to start putting her together! :D

Material!!! (Posted 5th April 2011)

Well after deciding I am most likely going to be doing this cosplay for May Expo I looked around on ebay for material so I could try and make the dress....and success! :D So happy. I also found a prefect wig...so I am going to purchase and start making her in the next month or so. :3 Looking really forward to it...Just have to find shoes, and a cardigan..and make the ID tag for her. :D So excited!
