PROGRESS PROGRESS PROGRESS!!
wig: kinda check
pants mock-up: check
basically, the wig “just” needs the hairline 🙄🙄 which will be a lot of tedious work. pants are looking okay, not sure what fabric to use for the panelling but should be done soon! the main frustrations are the last 2 slides- no matter how much I seem to do, there is still SO MUCH MORE... this isn’t even including her staff!!! Also, am slightly worried I will run out of materials, specifically the pleather. I don’t think ill finish this by the deadline i wanted LOL
The cooling weather got me in such a Halloween mood! What are y’all thinking about making for halloween costumes this year? Also fun fact- before I learned what cosplay was, I spent like a year on each costume, and didn’t realize I could just. do that. all the time!!
costume made entirely by me!

Jaylah progress! Swipe —> to see swatches, reference, and vote results! A while ago, I asked y’all what I should use for her main vest piece- it looks suede-y, but i wasn’t confident in the look of the fabric. If you didn’t vote back then, and have an opinion, comment below! the suede i would be using is the bottom right swatch.
A little bit of a throwback today! The cold weather and looking at my old musicallys has really inspired me to remake weiss. Of course, we’ll have to see if I have time, but i’m hoping to restyle her wig at the very least! ——
Also, this costume is currently in the hands of the lovely @adrimom_cosplay , go check out her account to see what she did with it! (she made it SO PRETTY GUYS)
lets chat about ~mall cosplay~
It seems to be something that people bring up often, whether to poke fun at it or not. What is your opinion of mall cosplay, or cosplaying in public/outside of a con? For me, I can totally understand the desire to call out mall cosplayers, since it is bringing a very unique and strange art form into public, which can be seen as very weird. But, I’ve also spent a lot of my time as a cosplayer being a mall cosplayer, and i think it can be something very cool. Every time, my friends and I have been approached by curious people who weren’t expecting anything and just think we’re kinda cool. I think that it’s even cooler than conventions sometimes, since you will meet people who have absolutely no idea what you’re doing! I chose this pic here because after his photo shoot, we went to the mall. It felt like a throwback to my early days as a cosplayer when going to the mall in cosplay was one of the only fun things to do. I also keep thinking about four years ago, when I saw a vriska cosplayer outside of a hot topic. This was before I was super into cosplay, but now I wish I had talked to her 😭😭😭 OH WELL, if any of y’all made it through this ramble then kudos to you!! and leave your thoughts/experiences with mall cosplay below 👇👇👇

Lets chat about wigs! Specifically how wig style and shape can make or break a character. These side by sides are both me, on two different days. The costume is identical, and the only differences are in the makeup and wig. I first wanted to cosplay Heather Chandler using the entire costume my sister wore at fanime, since I thought it was a cute look and I wanted a different hairstyle than my McNamara wig. But after doing a full photoshoot with the first wig, I was completely dissatisfied with every photo. I decided that Chandler just didn’t fit me, but after a few days I tried it again with the McNamara wig. The difference was instantaneous! All the charm that was missing the first time was immediately back. I think that the main difference was the way the wigs framed my face. The first wig’s long & flat shape emphasized the roundness of my face, while my McNamara wig worked harmoniously! Anyway, this is a long and rambling post but I thought it was interesting to see the difference.
Blazer and wig styled by me- both wigs from @ardawigs . First is a Grace in Yellow Blonde, second is a Matilda in Titanium Blonde.
