30 Days of Cosplay: Day 2

Day 2: How many costumes have you made?

Oh boy… Well this one can be a bit subjective if you really think about it. If you consider all of the ones I’ve made for other people, it’s close to thirty. But if you’re talking about ones that I’ve only done for me? Nineteen. And even deeper in that, I’ve done a few costumes several times over (re-made, not re-worn). So if we count the re-dos as one lump item…probably around nine or ten, then.

I know my MOST WORN cosplay is Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere.

I’ve done her ballgown three times, and her armour an additional two.

Second on that list would be Raven, having made that one three times as well. Each time, I get a little better.

Short post is short, but I’ll be able to do more in depth in later questions.

Crunch Time

Otakon 2015 is in a little over a week now.

Okay Korynn, we can do this. We can pull these costumes out from nowhere, and make them as epic as humanly possible! Yeah, that’s right. It’s going to be amazing.

No, the android is right. You have to keep it together. So far you haven’t had your annual “pre-con freakout” and that’s a good thing.

Ahh, the use of literary motivators during tough times.

Now, on to the important bits. I’ve still got quite a few things to do for these costumes, and not a whole lot of time to do them. So I’m going to be enlisting my friends and forcing them to do things so that way everyone can look good.

Arno’s jacket is now completely traced. All that’s left to do with him is to stitch it all together. Elise still needs a few pieces, like the lace collar and the black overskirt.

Altair’s hood is completely done (the hardest part about him tbh) and now all that’s left is the tunic and vambrace bits.

As for Blue Baby: The head is almost complete. Hopefully I can get that to do what I want soon. And the onesie should fall into place easily.

Gwendolyn… My contest piece…

I haven’t even started yet. Lord have mercy on my soul.
