Anyway for this convention I realized that I wanted a costume that's more comfortable and made for summer weather. That really disqualified all of my Star Wars costumes. I've also felt a bit uninspired lately, so I felt that I needed a pure fun project, where I don't need to obsess over accuracy. What to do, what to do.
Then I realized that there was a character that would fit right in, would be fun, and I feel very connected to.
She likes cats
She's from one of my favorite childhood toys/TV-series, even if the revival is better
She wears red glasses
She feels at home in a mine
She's a seamstress/fashion designer
She's a drama queen. Ok I hope I'm not a drama queen, but it's so fun playing out ALL YOUR EMOTIONS, which means I can go all in on the play part of cosplay.
Who it is?
It's Rarity from My Little Pony of course
And yes, whenever I'm working on a costume deadline I always make sure to play her Art of the Dress
Now things have started to arrive in my mailbox, but it's still a bit of a challenge to turn myself into a white unicorn with purple mane.
