I’m not gonna lie. Ever since I started cosplaying as Rey, I’ve always wanted a X-Wing Pilot Doll. To be honest, it looks like a voodoo doll. But I can imagine little Rey just scavenging what she can and, probably because of her lack of sewing skills, she had to use found materials. I’m sorta lucky enough to have materials on-hand except for the orange … Continue reading Raeh Doll
http://www.abc15.com/news/crime/update-armed-man-arrested-at-phx-comicon-after-struggling-with-police (based on a Facebook post) Something like this hits really hard when you know people (from your own family, Legion family and cosplaying community family) that could’ve been victims in a situation. And it’s an added blow when it’s one of your childhood heroes. It hits EXTRA HARD when you find yourself thinking “this could’ve been the Con you were at”… or have to … Continue reading PHX Comicon Arrest
Who is squeeing like a little fangirl? THIS GIRL! Don’t you dare judge me! Picture from Vanity Fair Of course, I cried a little when I saw The General Leia cover. And her picture with Billie Lourde. *bawls like a little baby, then composes self* Then did y’all see Rose’s costume? I don’t know whether I am happy about the jumpsuit, but I guess I … Continue reading Vanity Fair Covers
Don’t get any ideas now! I am NOT doing an actual Star Wars + Mulan Mashup (well at least not anytime soon) for a Comic Con or something. Just for pictures. And I would probably ask the photographer if I can have at least one mashup picture with me carrying a lightsaber instead of a sword. Just because. My friend Cindy invited (enticed) me to join her Princess Fairy … Continue reading Mulan Mashup Cosplay
I woke up today unsure on what costume I wanted to put on. Should I play it safe as Jyn or do I want to torture myself and have a panic attack while turning over the whole house just to find my missing Rey belt? Instead, I decided to go for the day’s theme: Revenge of the Sith. Yes, yes, I know! Kylo Ren technically isn’t a … Continue reading Free Comic Book Day at the MarqE
It definitely was a long day for me. First off, store meeting at 6:00am. SAY WHAAAAT? Yup, that’s retail for you. But at least I went to work in my Jyn costume and no one batted an eye. Hahaha! When I got to TV, I noticed that the group is a whole lot smaller today. Sunday, enough said. People have church or just want … Continue reading Traders Village Day 2: This Cosplayer is Pewped!!!
Okay I’m going to hold off the revelation here (because I’m evil like that!) but let me tell you about the rest of my day first… So I finally got to making the epaulets (shoulder pads) for my Resistance Rey costume. Of course I had to redo it because I didn’t measure the padding insert correctly. Shame on me! I would’ve been able to attach … Continue reading Guess What Came in the Mail!
