OK SO. Katsucon 2014 marked my 10th consecutive Katsucon, and I wanted to celebrate by throwing myself back into cosplay. I’ve gotten into hooping in the years I’ve been on cosplay hiatus, and I really wanted to do a costume that could incorporate my new hobby, and Tira is the first (and only?) character that came to mind!
I chose this version for both personal aesthetic appeal and ability to actually be hooped in! I definitely overshot my budget because I did NOT research the cost of feathers before I committed, haha. Overall I estimate that I spent about $350-$400 and I put her together in about 2 1/2 weeks.
From head to toe, I cut/pieced together the wig, did my makeup, dyed the feathers, made the gloves, boots, and accessories, drafted the bodysuit pattern (it has BONING and a proper lace-up back!) and built Eiserne Drossel to be light yet still sturdy enough to hoop with, and painted her to look as realistic as possible!
This is definitely the best costume I have made to date, and also one of the most comfortable/durable. I’m really proud of it and can’t wait to wear it again!
B99 had one serious flaw and not only did they correct it, but they apologized for it. Charles isn’t making excuses for his behavior, he’s straight pointing out his actions and saying he’s sorry for being out of line. Way to be, show.
This is a serious issue, so it is going in the serious board. Viewer discretion is heavily advised. [Help!] The Girl I Like Won’t Respond to My Emails (´･ω･`) A
Do you need to kill 2 hours or so? Would you like to glimpse into the mind of a delusional stalker? Boy do I have a treat for you!
This is a couple years old, but the first I’ve seen it. My face still hurts from holding my “wtf?! SRSLY?? NOOOO!” expression for 2 hours. Even if this is ends up being fake, it makes for a scary, and probably accurate, read.
