Cosplay Conspiracy

I first got into costuming years ago with an interest in period garb. It has only been in the past few years that I've actually taken to, and been able to afford, cosplaying on a regular basis.
Other than that, I have two children cats: Kitty Babe and Custard, who are both spoiled brats- but I love them to death anyway. I love chocolate, herbals teas, and fruit. I do not love phone calls or small talk, but I'll talk your ear off when you hit on something I care about.
And if you're in Arizona, we should do photos some time!

Cosplays in progress:

  • Quorra, Tron: Legacy
  • Sarah, Roommates/Labyrinth
  • Elinor, Brave
  • Maria Hill, The Avengers/Marvel Universe

No particular order here, especially since I’ve started all of them. I’ll just work on whatever I feel like whenever I feel like it.

Whoo, just don’t bend your legs backwards like poor Sarah.

Lol, yeah, about that…
And I’ll have to remember to get the cast iron skillet from my dad next time I go home.

So, I’m working on a cosplay of Quorra:

Whose name happens to have the same pronunciation as Korra:

And every time I tell someone I’m working on cosplaying her (Quorra), without differentiating between the two, they give me this weird look, and then ask how I am possibly going to pull that off. They won’t say it, of course, but that look of theirs clearly says “You’re a pasty white chick, how’re you gonna cosplay someone with darker skin?!” It’s kind of getting old…

So let me just set the record straight here people:

Neverminding she’s not the Quorra I’m talking about, cosplay is not about color. Anyone can cosplay any character they want, whenever they want, with complete disregard for such things as age, race, or gender. Yeesh…

We were asked all these questions about how long the costumes took us, how we did it, etc. 

I paused the video right when we were asked how much money we spent on our cosplays and

THIS WILL NEVER NOT BE FUNNY

Every cosplayer’s reaction. Only I have no objection to giving a rough estimate of my costs (rough because I don’t keep the whole total in my head, that’s what spreadsheets are for).

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA DEAR GOD, NO. 

I’m really sorry for anyone who thinks like that. Yes. ALL OF THE JOY MUST SUCK FROM YOUR LIFE the moment the clock strikes 12. The moment you turn 26. 

You do a reverse magical girl transformation.

Into SAILOR BORING JOYLESS ADULT.

Sadly, it’s true. See, I made a pact with the Evil Queen Nerdyl and she granted me the power of eternal enthusiasm and self assuredness for the interests that make me happy.  It’s almost like the power she granted me gave me the strength to enjoy what I enjoy without believing I’m not allowed to because I surpassed the age limit dictated to be “too old”.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Marvel marketing is not taking proper advantage of the Loki love out there. When I can walk through Spirit and see all of the Avengers, Justice League, and even DC baddies, but no Marvel villains I know someone isn’t doing their job.

All right, cold. We’re so totally done. I’ve worked, or rather, slept through your unpleasantness and uncomfortability. I’ve made up the time I missed at work, and have started catching back up on chores. We’re parting ways here, so stop encroaching on my cosplaying time, dang it.

Our mantra this last weekend was “Loki is a diva” because I would have to get up early to get dressed, required assistance to get in and out of costume, and then hoarded all the attention.

Then I saw this picture that Robert Hyrum Hirschi (thank you!) took at the Cosplay Competition and was all “That’s it, I’m done! He’s such a Diva!”

Because Sherlock would obviously know his way around a pharmacy- and would not be above sampling his wares. Especially the CII variety…

Ironically, I have a cold right now. So if you think I look a bit peaky in these photos, its because I actually do.
