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

Heyo! 🙂 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 😉

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 🙂 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 😉 )

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 🙂 It was a fun project.

Hopefully sometime soon (AKA, before another three months goes by 😉 ) 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 🙂

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 😉

So I decided to make myself a Newsies costume! I’ve been wanting to for awhile. It’s my first official cosplay 🙂 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 🙂

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 🙂 I wasn’t sure if the skirt was going to work, but I was happily surprised.

My Newsies Cosplay!--Blank PagesThe vest took me the longest to make, mostly because of the stubborn button holes XP Who ever invented button holes? I will stick to zippers, thank you 😉
