So, here’s my line-up for AWA next weekend. ^_^ Everything seems to be coming together pretty well. I just have to finish Draco’s scarf, Shizou’s stop sign, and do some shopping for a few things I’m still missing. The biggest problem right now is wondering if my stuff I ordered is going to get here in time.
Also, other than Draco, everything is genderbent. ^_^
So, I wasn’t really happy with my shirt for my Vegito cosplay. I decided to try again, this time just cutting up a couple shirts I bought at Walmart. What do you guys think? Do you prefer this one, or my first attempt?
Found some pictures I colored a while back. I do not own these images. I did not draw them, I merely colored them.

So, I did some work on my Vegito cosplay tonight. I apologize for my lack of make-up….Also…my gloves light up for his Benji Blast move, but it takes too much effort to get the lights to light up all at once.
So, I didn’t get many pictures Saturday because my phone died early on in the day, but here are the few I took. Pictured with me are whos-flying-this-tardis, waiting-for-the-lights, Tess Coogler, Jacob Davidson, and the best Inuyasha cosplayer I’ve seen to date.
Dragoncon was fun. I’m not sure if I’ll go again next year or not, but it was definitely fun to go at least once. My body is KILLING me though. I don’t think I’ve walked that much in MONTHS!
Now to get ready for AWA. ^_^
COMPLETELY FINISHED WITH MY PICK-AXE!!!! It’s not perfect, but I am EXTREMELY happy with it. ^_^ I can’t wait to carry it around on Saturday!!!
Pick-axe is almost finished! Just gotta balance the grime and blood to make it a little more realistic. Almost ready for Saturday!!
So, I got my Lara Croft 2013 pick-axe sanded and got all the grooves cut. Now I’m just waiting on the glue to dry so I can paint it. ^_^
I’M GETTING THE BEST COMMENTS ABOUT MY LARA CROFT COSPLAY!!!!!
"At first glance I wondered why someone was posting a bloodied up picture of this girl on Facebook… then I noticed it was the Dragon Con page. Nicely done!"
"You did a marvelous job with the faux blood!"
"I’m so loving this!"
AND….my personal favorite (said after someone blew a overly cautious gasket because I used paint for my fake blood):
"And "body painting" is a different matter entirely than what she’s doing here - the deft and artful, skillful placement of wounds and a bit of bloody effect-work - from what I can see."
That’s right! They said it!
Here’s my finished bikini top! I did a couple rows of star stitching as a base and then did a converted puff stitch as the main body of the top with two star stitch straps. It’s made with Caron Simply Soft yarn in the color Pagoda.
