So I finally finished the Chocola costume, I had to finish the sleeves, back and accessories. Boy was this dress a challenge I can't wait to see Tiga's face!
I personally have always had an interest in Special FX make-up, I think its fun and can take a costume to the next level. There are plenty of tutorials on YouTube on some specific looks that use SFX techniques like Glam&Gore who is my personal favourite. Sadly I am not an expert in this type of make-up, I can only really do face painting and general make up, so I have enlisted the help of my friend Tara, who is an amazing Special FX make-up artist, some of her stuff will be shown below.
As I said in my Chocola post, I've been really busy making some costumes for myself and my friends on top of all my school work and still trying to stay social. This year I've decided to cosplay as Yuno Gasai and get a little bit crazy.
My friends and I are having a Halloween party this year and so I've been pretty busy making costumes for myself and my friends. And here is one of the costumes I've made for one of my close friends and fellow cosplayer, (for security's sake) Tiga (picking the name herself) , she's cosplaying as Chocola.
Hi everyone, and welcome to my beginners guide to the Wonderful World of Cosplay. This guide will hopefully get you started when preparing for your first cosplay.
What is Cosplay?
When I talk to people about how much I love cosplay, people generally have no idea what I'm talking about. Cosplay, in its simplest form is dressing up as your favourite character, but it can be so much more. Many cosplayers make their own costumes, which can seem daunting at first but is quite fun. When people cosplay they usually have a date or goal in mind, like a convention or Halloween. Cosplay shows up mostly around sci-fi and fantasy movies/TV, anime and video game fans, but it can be for pretty much anything as long as you're a fan. Cosplay is a great way to meet new people and find people of similar interests, its also a great way to learn new skills such as sewing, sculpting and design.
