Kay so I made a super ghetto version of Black Widow for the Iron Man 3 movie premier tonight. I know I think I already uploaded that first picture but whatever. The body suit has been fixed up since then I’ve just been too frustrated with everything to actually try it on with the wig. I found some cheap tactical belts/leg holsters on Amazon and had them shipped quick so I’d get them today. Woo! Then because this is a theater, and since recent events, wouldn’t feel comfortable bringing any kind of airsoft or guns that actually LOOKED like guns, I went to the dollar store and bought two squirt guns that looked enough like fake pistols. Not gonna paint them or anything. When I go to an actual con, I’ll more than likely get airsoft guns, and accurate wrist wrap things. I knew I wouldn’t have time to make accurate or decent things so I bought a bullet belt and I’m just using that. MERRY CHRISTMAS. I’ll have a picture with it all on and assembled later. :D
(Edit, I added a picture with it all assembled minus the wig) Also forgot to mention I knew I wouldn’t have time to make proper or accurate wrist… things… so, deal with the bullet belt as bracelets. xD
So I got two comic book event things coming up. I’ve already posted about comic book day, but I also wanted to figure out something to wear to the Iron man 3 premiere. The first picture is the upgrades/finishes I made to my Robin costume. I never quite completed it before, so I figured I should probably fix it up to be even kind of accurate. xD; Second is the work I’ve been doing on Black Widow. I couldn’t decide which version I was going to do before I finally settled on a simple comic version. Well when I tried on the body suit I made well… I didn’t compensate for it not stretching vertically, so Basically I had to cut it up and add seams similar to the Movie version to make it taller (didn’t have enough fabric to completely remake it). but I don’t think I’ll have time to completely make the movie version before Thursday so… it’s gonna be kind of a mix? xD (also this almost made me want to cosplay Maria Hill)
So some of you guys already know, but for the followers I have that I don’t have on facebook, or watch my page, I’m re-makings most of my Robin for Free Comic Book day. I was asked to help out our local shop by showin up and taking photo’s with kids and such! I’m pretty excited about it, and also pretty excited to actually finish this costume since it was a last minute thing when i first made it. At the time I didn’t know much about Steph other than she was a female Robin. I had bought the fabric to do a Robin before but decided I never wanted to crossplay with spandex again so I discovered Steph! Made the costume in a super short period of time. I never ended up added the more detailed bits so that’s what I’m going through and doing now. wooo! (though I feel bad this was one of the only “family friendly” super hero costumes I had. The other was Cass, and seeing as how neither actually exist (to my knowledge) in the DC verse right now I’m not too sure what to expect other than being called female Robin all day. xD
Third and final round of my photos from Anime Matsuri 2013. All the photos are now up on my FB and Flickr. ALL the cosplay credits can be found on my flickr page. I’m too lazy to put them in right now.
WOOO! I made this Pinkie Pie a LOOONG time ago. Okay, a year. And I’ve worn it maybe…. 3 or 4 times? I fiiiiiinnaaaaally am getting good pictures of it. The top three and bottom pictures are by Mineralblu Photography. The fourth image is by THIS AWESOME LADY HERE and the art, this is what I was inspired by. I actually do not have the source for this since it was found on 4chan, with no link to the artist. SO IF YOU KNOW THEM PLEASE LET ME KNOW! Also, there’s a lot of differences because when I made this I only had… a day to make the entire thing basically. So I did what I could with what I had. :D
(Oh, and the last photo, Lily as Applejack, myself as Pinkie Pie, HEATHER JUST BEIN AWESOME IN HER FLIPPIN COOL TANK GIRL INSPIRED WIG, and Pockyfairy as RainbowDash!)
Woooooo! So many amazing photo’s to choose from. -flails everywhere- But here’s a photoset of my finished Gaige cosplay. I know some of you are probably tired of seeing it, but I’m dang proud of it okay? I know before I wear it again though, I’ll be making the details darker. They’re great in person but if it’s not a High resolution photo, the details don’t show up so well. i went a bit subtle this time, GOIN ALL OUT NEXT TIME (and might also have the default Gaige head for A-Kon). Anywho, photo’s are credited in the caption but you should check out their pages anyway because they are AWESOME: Aperture Ashely: A.L.P. Photography
I wanted to include some pictures of stuff I was selling. I have short wigs, pony tail wigs, natural looking wigs, and character wigs (“Flame Princess” inspired style and Spike from My Little Pony)..as well as a short selection of costumes!
If you’re interested, message me on my facebook page. If you start the message off with “Tumblr sent me,” I’ll include shipping (US Only) for free!
And as always..I appreciate anyone spreading the word! The faster I can make utilities this month, the faster I can do other things (like eating real food)
Signal boost for a friend! Help a girl out, yo.
