Cosplay Update! Claire, Ashlotte, and Gabrielle!
Because I have SO MUCH FREE TIME ON MY HANDS I decided to add an additional costume to my roster for Fanime! I’m totally stoked to finally finish my Claire Redfield costume, which will be uncharacteristically comfortable. I think I’ll regret adding her to the list as SDCC creeps closer though, when I’m not finished with Ashlotte or Gabrielle Belmont. :P
I spent the weekend painting the back of Claire’s vest, and I’m quite proud of the results considering that I’m not an illustrator by any means. Her right hand is a bit of a mess, but I’ll cover it with some zombie blood and call it a day!
I’m making light progress with Ashlotte (debut at SDCC), but mostly just the chest piece and skirt/leggings. I need to get cracking on her armor!
Gabrielle Belmont (debut at Dragon*Con) is proving slow, but coming along nicely! I’m having fun making the Cyclone boots and the Dark Gauntlet out of Worbla. Started work on the Combat Cross, too!
I’m actually really enjoying working on more than one costume at a time - it allows me to move onto something else whenever I get frustrated with a particular piece, which is quit often. :S
I’ll also be at BigWow this next weekend in San Jose, wearing a slightly updated version of my Zatanna costume. It’s been years so I’m excited to pull her out of the closet again!
That’s all for now - I’ll post more WIP photos as they come!
“NOT Just a Girl” by Jamie Moore Photography
This is so beautiful it had me near tears. A talented photographer wanted to document her daughter’s fifth birthday, but instead of dressing her up as a Disney Princess as many of her peers were doing, she decided to draw inspiration from real heroines of history. The photos, quotes, and overall attitude are so inspirational. Especially the “Emma for President 2044” image. I love diving into fantasy worlds, but this reminded me that we don’t always have to look to fiction to find a hero.
My daughter wasn’t born into royalty, but she was born into a country where she can now vote, become a doctor, a pilot, an astronaut, or even President if she wants and that’s what REALLY matters. I wanted her to know the value of these amazing women who had gone against everything so she can now have everything. We chose 5 women (five amazing and strong women), as it was her 5th birthday but there are thousands of unbelievable women (and girls) who have beat the odds and fought (and still fight) for their equal rights all over the world……..so let’s set aside the Barbie Dolls and the Disney Princesses for just a moment, and let’s show our girls the REAL women they can be.
