Looking back at 2013 - My year in cosplay

Thank you for a fantastic year, your comments and questions have made it very interesting and fun for me. I have done so much this year and learned even more.

I got to know a lot of new wonderful people and spent more money than I want to admit on wigs, fabric and paint. So let me sum up 2013 with the costumes I have made, and gosh I have been busy!

I have to start off with Vi, the idea came to me late January and it took about four months to make

Then another two months to improve it before NCC.

I even made a backup costume as Vanellope von Schweetz this spring, I love Wreck it Ralph. I don't really look like 6 year old, but I like candy. Note to self, get a better photo of this costume

Then I followed up with making my first elvish costume, the Wood elf. And I felt really beautiful :)

And I even made a cosplay that is not from a game, Codex from the Guild. I made it mainly because I wanted that staff. 

And I had to make Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite.... Not my best, but very fun. 

...And then I got to create something for my own, the Sea Goddess.

I recycled a few more costume parts and made a Spirit Elf.

And strutted down the red carpet in my demon outfit.

I learned how to style wigs with my Lilith costume.

And I added more horror as a Splicer from Bioshock 2.

Then I ended up with creating more styles like this post apocalyptic bad ass

and this steampunk adventurer

And let's not forget that trip where I went out looking all Asari.

In between all of this I have made several zombies

In the end of the year I was very tired, but I had to make just one more costume - Death Elf

... And another bloody makeup

...ehem, and one Christmas inspired deer makeup

To sum it up I have made  7 Cosplays and 14 Original characters/looks this year. That is more than a costume each month. And it is all documented for you on this blog ;) And i can't wait to start on next years projects. 

Happy new year
