Anonymous asked: Where did you get your cosplay wigs and were they expensive?
I get mine from Epic Cosplay most of the time.
Their wigs are super soft, easy to care for and style, and run around $30-$50 depending on length. I consider that a pretty good deal for the quality.
Anonymous asked: When you cosplay do you get into character, and if so how hard is it to break out of character?
oh man I am a terrible cosplayer if the roleplay is a major part of it
i almost never stay in character, mostly cause i use cosplay as a platform for making friends. i mean, how am i supposed to get to know people if im being someone else?
i guess i’ll rp if someone really wants me to or like we’re doin a group rp, but yeah…
and in answer to the second question, it is incredibly difficult to not break out of character. if i am trying though, then i try really hard. go big or go home!
I am seriously considering cosplaying Julie from Warm Bodies cause I already own her freakin jacket
I mean, it has the weird drawstring synching at the waist and everything! I couldn’t find something more canon accurate if I tried!
accio-underwear asked: I'm sure you already thought of this but I got really excited when you reblogged those Calhoun concept designs because some of those would be WAY easier for you to cosplay than making that armor if you still wanted to be her! I
the ones with suspenders are fab, lesbihonest here
toonartt asked: Hello! I've been looking into doing an Audrey cosplay and was wondering where you got the yellow dress and the striped shirt from? Been searching online and having a hard time finding anything promising. :)
For the dress, I found it on ebay and I don’t really have any more info for you than just search “yellow dress” and see what you get.
As for the shirt, on the other hand, I may be a bit more helpful as my hunt for the perfect stripes was also painstakingly long and hopeless. Mine is a sweater from Aeropostale and, though they do not carry it on their own site, if you search ebay for “aeropostale green blue sweater” there are several listings in multiple sizes of the same one I have.
Hope that helps :)
(P.S. When you’re done, I’d love to see pics! There are so few of us Audrey’s around)
After I used my Christmas giftcards, I only have two things left to buy to complete my Candlehead cosplay! :D
Of course, there’s still stuff to paint and kludge together once the pieces show up in the mail, but I am pleasantly surprised how close I am now to being done!
i love it when i spontaneously “want” to cosplay a character and when i actually do a bit of fantasy shopping around the web it actually looks pretty easy and affordable
I really need a fix-it felix cosplayer in my life. we would take so many shippy photos our entire existence would be fan service.
