My Ella Cosplay! (From The Hero’s Guide Book Series)

Heyo! πŸ™‚ So, I am not going to start out this post by apologizing how I haven’t written for three months. I seem to always start out that way so you all are used to it by now πŸ˜‰

As you may have gathered from the title, I recently attempted to make another cosplay. This one was from the amazing Hero’s Guide book series πŸ™‚ Ella is one of my many favorite characters from this series.

(Go read it, it’s a ton of fun and you won’t be able to stop laughing through the entire series πŸ˜‰ )

So without further ado, here’s my Ella cosplay! XD

The base pattern I used was Simplicity’s pattern 1773. I changed a lot of things, but that was my starting point.

My Ella Cosplay! (From The Hero's Guide Book Series)-- Blank PagesMy Ella Cosplay! (From The Hero's Guide Book Series)-- Blank PagesI spent very little money on this project. The pattern was one I already had, and the only fabric I bought was for the skirt. (The bottom left in above picture.) It’s actually a tablecloth I bought at a thrift store for around $4. And it was a really nice tablecloth too. Thrift stores are pretty much the best things ever, guys! XD The rest of the fabric I already had.

So there you have it! All in all I was happy with it all πŸ™‚ It was a fun project.

Hopefully sometime soon (AKA, before another three months goes by πŸ˜‰ ) I’ll be able to bring ya’ll up to date about what all is happening in my life. It’s always an adventure, that’s for sure πŸ™‚

Talk to ya later!

My Newsies Cosplay!

Most people who know me know that I like the movie and play Newsies. A lot. I often annoy my siblings from singing and quoting it so much πŸ˜‰

So I decided to make myself a Newsies costume! I’ve been wanting to for awhile. It’s my first official cosplay πŸ™‚ I’ve done costumes before, but never what I would call a full-hearted cosplay before. It’s far from perfect, but I’m pretty happy with it πŸ™‚

My little brother took pictures for me. I feel so weird when people take pictures of me XP

My Newsies Cosplay!--Blank PagesAll the elements paired up pretty nicely, I think πŸ™‚ I wasn’t sure if the skirt was going to work, but I was happily surprised.

The Star Wars Theme

Hello, peoples!

The title has probably made you wonder, hasn’t it? Well, you’ll just have to wonder for ever and ever because I’m not going to tell you. >:P Just kidding… I’ll tell you ^.^ Yesterday was the last day of Co-Op for awhile (which was sad), and I thought that I’d do something special with my hair, since it’s been ages and ages πŸ˜› I really need to start doing my hair more often again… But, anyway, I started playing with it, and somehow my hair turned out looking Star Warsish. Coincidentally I was wearing my Star Wars shirt. Imagine that. πŸ˜‰ I didn’t get great pictures of it, I thought about it right before I was headed for bed last night. And when you’ve had a tiring day, and are ready for bed one is not in the best mood for taking pictures, as I’m sure you can surmise πŸ™‚

You probably can’t tell, but I’m wearing my “stardust” eye shadow hereΒ  πŸ™‚ I just couldn’t resist putting it on that morning πŸ˜‰

May the Force be with you!
