A Little Costume Positivity


Cosplay has really exploded these past few years. Famous people do it, people have made professional careers out of it and there are some people who literally just make costumes or props, which is awesome! Sadly a lot of people, either with less skill or people who are simply new to making costumes, get deflated with their early attempts when compared to these professionals, or more experienced cosplayers. Got to admit that I’m guilty of this: my Facebook is full of cosplay groups with epic costumes, my Instagram shows awesome armour builds and weapons and even Pinterest has started throwing “make better costume” pages at me on a regular basis, which leaves me feeling a little crummy about my own costumes. This leads to the inevitable scrapping of ideas, pushing them back in the hope that I’ll magically learn that skill or asking people on a frequent basis how my costume looks (or, rather, how I look in it, which is the big worry). Sorry bout that friends!

This is why articles like this fill me with small, fuzzy feelings, because all the good cosplayers had to start somewhere: http://www.sharemycosplay.com/2016/10/19/share-my-cosplay-everyone-starts-somewhere/

It’s pretty much common sense that everyone starts somewhere, no matter what you’re doing, but when you see more good pictures than bad it’s kind of hard not to feel a little self-doubt.

On the plus side, pretty much anything I make from this point on will be better than the first costume I ever wore to a Comic Con, which is honestly an insult to the lady I went as….

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to figure out how to wear wigs properly and get ready for London MCM in 10 DAYS!!! (50% hype, 50% terror I think).


The Mysterious Disappearance Of The Blog Writer…


Hello people who accidentally managed to find their way here instead of whatever site you were originally looking for!! It’s not that hard to notice that I’ve been absent these past few months. Well, more than a few (since my last post was apparently 9 months ago… WHAT?!)

The reason for this is pretty simple actually: I unfortunately live in an area where Internet is a strange and mysterious thing. Or something like that, since I get pretty much 0 service and most of the top UK broadband providers won’t service here… It’s kind of like the dark lands in the Lion King – the Internet providers just don’t go here.

Anyway I’m here to say that I will be around (vaguely) and I’ll be posting some new stuff up sooooon! ❤

So to sum up today's post: I'm not dead, Internet service is magical/forbidden and there are shiny new things in the future! Boo-yah!! x
