Dr Who Sunday
(posing on the airvent makes my skirt look fabulous lol)
Confected Cosplay has an awesome photo of the 3 of us!
Wearing the lift-up faceplate mask this time instead of the masquerade one. SOOOOOO much more comfortable! I even bought some gold and red fake eyelashes for it, and trimmed it in gold braid like I had for the masquerade one. Though one eyelash started falling off, so I had to avail myself of Captain patch It’s services (or the cosplay repair room at least) to fix it 😀 (achievement get!)
Mini was a Steampunk Harley Quinn, I was Lady Ironman and MrObsi was a Steampunk Gambit.
We made Mini’s mallet from foam and cardboard, with a fabric roll handle 😀 We attached painted sheets of paper to the mallet and stuck painted faux pearl stickers on there to look like rivets. It ended up being pretty light (important when having to carry it around all day)
Another ebay costume 🙂 I got a plain blue corset from ebay and added in the window panels. You can’t really tell but the little top hat has a light in the top (finger-lights that I got from ebay). The blue skirt and gloves were also from there – but the black top and black skirt are bellydance costume bits I already had.
We found some other Whovians to be photographed with too!
Normally we do a Steampunk day but we decided we’d do something different and we wanted to do a Firefly cosplay, but we were on an extreme budget! And had trouble finding costume bits (cheaply). I’d been having trouble finding the overalls Kaylee wears (especially in a size to fit me) and I’m not really built for dressing up as anyone else.
In the end we decided a Hawaiian shirt with dinosaurs in the pockets (and his firefly dino tshirt under) for hubby to be Wash, and I fashioned a stupid Inara outfit from stuff I already had, plus a discount store wig 😛
So it was a bit of a crappy costume 😦
Originally we were going to do Steampunk costumes on Sunday, but we were tired and I wanted to wear comfy shoes and didn’t want to wear a corset (and I don’t have a suitable non-corset top for the outfit)… so we decided to just go jeans and a t-shirt for the Sunday. But MiniObsi went as Link…. wearing MrObsi’s Link tunic, the shield backpack I made, a dodgy plastic sword we had lying around and I made a Navi from a polystyrene ball 🙂
