Here is my costume lineup for Otakon 2013.
Hot summer convention with long sleeves leather jacket! What am I thinking?! But yeah, that is how much I love Shingeki no Kyojin. You can probably tell from my latest poll that I've jumped into the Shingeki no Kyojin bandwagon. Despite my minimal experience in props making, I decided to try building the 3D Maneuver Gear myself. It was quite a learning experience. I had never thought that props could be made primarily out of foam boards and foam sheets. It was very fun for the most part. It feels like such an accomplishment when everything is all set and done! Here are some of the progress pictures:
I'm in the middle of a move so this past month has been very crazy. I never realized I had so many stuff/junk in my apartment until I actually had to go through them. Most of my costumes are in storage now that is why I won't be bringing the same amount of costumes I brought to Katsucon (I think that was 6?). The Recon Corps uniform is such a perfect costume for a summer con because it will protect me from sunburn lol. But seriously, let's see how long I'll last outdoor in that costume. XD I did a makeup and wig test earlier in the week. If you spot me among all the fellow Shingeki no Kyojin cosplayers, come say hello to me! And if you want me to beat you up while I'm dressed as Rivaille… send me a note and we can make arrangement lol
