I had a real blast though, and I have loads to show you.
First of all, my Ariel cosplay was a hit again and Vanessa even showed up to steal my voice!
Photo courtesy of Emski (need to get her cosplay page if she has one and then I'll link it here) who made the most beautiful, not to mention lovely, Vanessa I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
This was on the first day.
The second day was Wonder Woman and my goodness does MCM love Wonder Woman! Oh and I made a lasso of truth last minute that I was able to hook to my costume on the day and it went down fabulously. People actually went mad for it.
It's just yarn wrapped in yarn but it does the job and it looks cool. Main photo courtesy of Elmos_Empire Cosplay and secondary photos by a good con friend, Daisy.
But the third day. Oh wow. I was in my comfiest cosplay yet, which is just as well because the group had a super long, super awesome photo shoot with Joseph Leeder. I loved every minute of it.
Next year is Hipster Squirrel Girl and I am already pretty much set...
There is a draw back to comic con though. You spend a lot of money. I focussed on indulging my kawaii side so that I can feel happy with my accessories and B+, because that's still important to me. In fact, I've even started my bentos again and dressing up for girl's nights in clothes I like. Because I like them. Okay the wig definitely helps me feel more confident but if that's what I need to B+ right now, I'm just gonna go with it. We'll all take baby-steps and eventually, plodding along, we'll get to a point where we are empowered, independent women! (Throw your hands up in the air...)
I'm also experimenting with my style, and getting to grips with how I can get into lolita fashion, which I've always adored but never been able to wear due to my height. For now, it's a case of a few accessories and a bit of lace but this little outfit today has made me want to take it a step further and look at the possibility of making my own lolita dresses with matching chokers or hairbows.
I don't want to overload you guys since I've been away for a while and most of this isn't crafty, so I'll get back to making things again soon now that con is over. This will hopefully include my cosplays for October MCM, a cosplay for my boyfriend for October MCM and a lolita dress for Christmas Hyper Japan.
Oh, I'm also recording vlogs, which need editing, so they should be fun!
Until next time!
