I guess I have more to share with you all then I originally thought. Here’s my touched up Pre Time Skip Nia cosplay that I debuted back In June. I’d still like to redo the belt but I’m much happier with this costume now than I was at Otakon 2012.

OH MY GOSH! HOW DID I NOT UPLOAD ANY DIVA ON HERE???? She is only one of my favorite characters ever! This costume was a dream come true for me. I would like to touch up a few things but I’m pretty happy with it.

Hello tumblr folk! Oh wow! Did the last two months go by quickly! At the beginning of May I started getting ready for Philadelphia Comic Con by making two new cosplays AND COMPLETING LOLITA CAPTAIN AMERICA WITH PARASOL!!! I also made a whole new revised Wonder Woman cosplay which looked so much better- actually I’m not even going to compare it to the piece of crap I made for NYCC. I also made a Livewire costume. AND PEOPLE LOVED IT! I didn’t think anyone would recognize me but I wanted to cosplay her because I looooove her. Between my marathoning of Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, and Superman the Animated Series certain characters just grew on me. Superman for one! I used to not be a Superman fan because he was such a good two shoes in JL but in Superman he’s more of a smart, smart ass which I liked. Also Lois is amazing. I’m getting my boyfriend to cosplay Superman and so I can be Lois, Livewire and Supergirl with him. Speaking of my boyfriend I’m up in Connecticut visiting him this week and he is working right now so I’ll be posting on here more often and I will finally hook up my instagram to my blog so it gets updated more. Baby steps. Baby steps. So the week after Philly Comic Con was AnimeNEXT so I made a Yuri Tokikago cosplay and redid Pre Time Skip Nia and wore Zelda. Again. Because bitches love Zelda. I know I do. And then I got two new jobs so I’m saying goodbye to the horrible convenience store I work at and saying hello to Marshall’s and Superfresh. I like having two jobs. The constant cash flow makes my hectic and busy life a little bit easier.
And now I have the week of here in central connecticut. I came up on Friday and I’m not leaving until this Saturday so I get to be with my boyfriend for a wonderful 8 days. Why so long? Because he turned 22 on Sunday and it was our eleven month anniversary on saturday.
So now I will start to post more Zelda pictures, some Yuri, Wonder Woman and Livewire as I get them. I hope you enjoy! And thanks for following me! It makes me happy to see the numbers rise even though I’ve kind of been neglecting this site this year.

Flame Princess from Adventure Time
I used the Jareth Long as a base and constructed a form out of interfacing and covered it in the extra fibers to create the flame effect! (The leftover fibers from the flame were used and layered to create the gradient on the side bangs.)
what an amazing cosplay!!! Dat wig! Dat dress! Dat cute smile! She is adorable! Can I hug her??
I just wanna take a moment to get on my tumblr high horse and complain about why statements like this aren’t okay. And why shitheads like this make me mad.
So, as a cosplayer, I expect a fair amount of criticism from the public. And the truth is, if i sincerely believe that whatever the critic is saying to be true, I will take it into consideration and try to fix it.
In the last few months I’ve had people tell me, on my own page or statuses I’m blatantly tagged in that I’m
- too old
- not accurate (which in many cases I’ve found the people haven’t done their research and just assume something is wrong when it, in fact, isnt — if it is actually inaccurate I’ll offer up a rationale or admit I just didn’t care/was lazy…it happens.)
- not pretty
- and now too pale
Again, when you put yourself in the public eye you expect that kind of feedback but it doesn’t make it okay.
I’m not personally offended by these words, because if I was, I wouldn’t continue to do the shit I do. If I thought I was too fat or ugly to do something, it would be awfully difficult for me to continue doing it, yes?
But there are people out there who are new or apprehensive to cosplay and who DON’T have that level of confidence. Many times, cosplayers are people who don’t have another place and find warmth in the nerd community — so when assholes like this backlash and make people feel like they shouldn’t do something because they’re not [verb] enough for something or they’re too [verb] for that character, it’s really fucking petty and stupid.
That’s why I continue to respond to morons like this. Because if I ignore it, I feel like I’m continuing to send the messages that shit like this is okay. It may seem like an over-reaction but by standing up for myself and making him look like an asshole, that’s one more trolly motherfucker who won’t go out and ACTUALLY hurt someone else’s feelings.
Also, can I point out his sexist rationale that I cosplay for male enjoyment. God forbid a woman do something sexy that isn’t -GASP- for the pleasure of a man. Go fuck yourself. I do stuff because -I- enjoy it, and I have real followers who like Persona (or other series I cosplay) and they ALSO enjoy it. I like meeting fellow fans, and, guess what. -I- enjoy fan service. For myself. And I know some other people do too. I do it for myself and for other true fans of the franchise. Not to be your fap material.
THIS is why I love Sarah. I’ve been following her for a while now and not only are her cosplays amazing she has a good head on her shoulders too. And she’s right. This stuff is not acceptable. Just because a cosplayer is comfortable doing a more risque costume doesn’t mean she’s doing it to please men or any follower. She’s doing it because she loves the character. And Sarah loves the Persona series so if she wants to cosplay every version of Naoto, let her because she’s awesome and does it well.
And now it is time for Zelda spam!
