Happy New Year!

My cosplays from this past year!

My cosplays from this past year!

This past year was my first year in quite a few where I worked on cosplay regularly. I had no idea I did so many costumes until I put this photo above together (although two of them are casual costumes). No wonder it felt like I was so busy! Now I don’t feel so bad about the costumes I didn’t get to.

The last photo is from the weekend before New Years Eve at Newcon. I dressed up as Perfume with Holli and Ariann. We actually ended up winning a prize in the costume contest after deciding to enter the night before. Ariann put up an entry about how we made our costumes on her and Holli’s blog, so check it out if you want to know more. I might still do my own post talking more about how I designed the fabric and got it printed. I also need to do a post about my Shampoo costume.. so behind!

I’ve already started getting ready for Sakura-con. I’m planning on doing 4 costumes and they are all group/duo cosplays. I’ll be going as Tomoyo from Card Captor Sakura, Creamy Mami, Morrigan (again!), and Hibari from Mawaru Penguindrum. I’ll be doing Mawaru Penguindrum with Ariann and Holli and we’re entering it in the costume contest. Since we had to have a group name for our application, we finally came up with one we liked: Fanatic Dolly Cosplay. You can follow us on Facebook here!

This year I’ll also be attending Evo in Las Vegas. Dan is really into fighting games so he’ll be entering the tournaments for Street Fight, Marvel and Tekken. I’m going to bring my Morrigan cosplay as well as a new one, Lili from Tekken. I don’t think I blogged about it, but this past October, Dan and I took a trip to Las Vegas and it was really fun! And I’m excited to be going to a fighting game tournament since Dan and I watch almost all of Team Spooky‘s fighting game streams.

That’s all I have for now! I’ll be posting some more blog entries soon since I have a lot to catch up on!
