I swore up and down I'd never post a picture of my first cosplays because I.. uh.. am not a huge fan of how I look, but that's the entire point of the glow up challenge 😂
In case you can't tell, one of my first cosplays was Suigetsu from Naruto. I had no experience cutting wigs/hair (I actually nicked myself so badly cutting this wig that I still have a scar to this day .-.). The outfit was bought from Savers and my friends' mom helped me alter the shirt. I made the belts, and another friend pretty much made the entire sword for me. Even with all the help from amazing people, I still had a CRAZY amount to learn.
Pidge from Voltron is my most recent cosplay. I've made everything for this cosplay too! Styled/cut the wig myself. Made my own pattern for the clothing (even with a working pocket for Pidges jacket). And bit the bullet and FINALLY attempted making my own shoes!! :D
I've been cosplaying for about 3 years on and off over the last 5 years! It's been a hell of a ride and I've met so many interesting and amazing people since entering the cosplay community again. I love you all very much and thank you for being a continual support system for us 💜💜💜
