Hellooo world! And Happy Easter, if you celebrate!
As mentioned before, I have some big ideas for AM next year! Before I get into that, I wanted to share that I will be a guest on Epically Geeky's YouTube show on Cosplay Props, along with a panel of some other phenomenal cosplayers! It will go LIVE around 9:30 PM on April 29th! Come support us and check it out! You may learn a thing or two about prop making!
ANYWAY! Since you all have pledged, I am going to share my big ideas for next year with you, and if you have any suggestions please run them by me! I am shooting for 1st place Advanced OR Best in Show (which would basically make my dream come true and I can retire happily... maybe I shouldn't aim for that then ;) )
Next Year's AM competition pieces are probably going to be Sunset Dragon's DnD Vaporeon and Flareon. Here are my goals to make these awesome
-learn leatherworking and make all of Flareon's barbarian armor out of that (blueprints in previous post)
-work with epoxy sculpt for details on Vaporeon's staff
-learn Raspberry Pi and circuitry to make an actual glowy effect for Flareon's Axe and Vaporeon's Staff
- Frankenstein lace together to get the foamy effect on the bottom of Vaporeon's dress
-perfect ombre dying fabric and making custom formal dresses
-perfect making and potentially dying/coloring faux yarn fur -plan out a skit, and potentially have 2 volunteers be our pokemon trainers so we can act out a pokemon battle!
I can't WAIT to get started! Darn you school!
Peace n Blessins <3
