I was inspired by @labinnak's recent Ruby cosplay collage, and I realized that I have 9 different Weiss variants (at least), so this happened. When I first saw RWBY, I immediately related to Weiss because I hate when people touch my stuff. That initial impression hasn't faded, as I relate to her on a deep, spiritual level, to am extent that I'm not comfortable going into detail on such a public forum (you may PM me if you're dying to know, since it's not private, just details about my personal life that I don't need everyone and their cousin to know). Obsessively handcrafting her various outfits as faithfully as possible to the source material has been a labor of love, and I've picked up a lot of skills along the way, like gradient dyeing (literally Satan), stencil making, and fabric painting. I've also acquired a weird affinity for lace. 😂
I've arranged these cosplays in the order that Weiss wears them in canon, with the manga outfit between the original and Snowpea, since that's meant to take place between Vols. 1 & 2, and original outfits at the end. I made all of these cosplays myself, with the exception of the swimsuit, which was purchased (I made and painted the cover-up) and the Beacon uniform, which I received as a gift at Detour from my dear friend Lee, who cosplays Yang and got me into RWBY in 2015. I plan to take some photos soon now that it's spring! The holiday sweater version was inspired by @martanimate's artwork. 📸: @j_ammeson (original outfit, both Vol. 4 outfits); @alie_kirker (PJs); @psychopyro813 (swimsuit); me (uniform). The others are unknown, but they were either taken by or sent to me by @dreamingdragoncosplay, @sleepycelestial, @belladonna.black, and @krissy.cosplay. Guest starring @dreamingdragoncosplay as Ruby, @j_ammeson as Oobleck, and Lee's bf Alex as Neptune.
