Vash the Stampede cosplay for ACen 2015

Okay, I haven’t mentioned this cosplay since I really wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out – but since ACen is, uh, this week, I better get blogging about it!  Me and two of my sisters are going to ACen on Saturday in Trigun cosplay – and I get to be Vash the Stampede! (⊙ꇴ⊙)

Kiki cosplay for ACen 2015

I’ve gotten quite behind in my blogging… sorry!  I have been busy, and I have been working on costumes, which I’ll be posting some about later this week.  (I left it late enough, didn’t I, seeing as the convention is this coming weekend?)  For starters, here are some quick photos of my Kiki cosplay, with all its bits.

I know these pics are kinda bad – that’s what I get for thinking it’s a good idea to do costume photos at 6 a.m. after a work night.  But, well, here they are.  The “preggo effect” of this dress isn’t quite as exaggerated as that second pic makes it look – I tend to slouch badly, a bad habit from before my breast surgery that I can’t quite shake, but when I stand properly straight this dress sits normal.  It’s supposed to look like a little girl’s dress, anyway, not a form-fitting woman’s dress.  Besides the dress, there’s the red bow headband, and I went for some red flats with bows also – because why not?  The wig I bought for this costume was supposed to be dark brown-black, but is actually just… black.  I was a little disappointed in that but didn’t have time to try and order another one, so it’ll work.

I also have a red messenger bag to take with, courtesy of my mum who made it for me… and, of course, a Jiji will be riding along!

Melody’s pink ball gown from The Little Mermaid 2

My sister’s pick for Anime Central this year was Melody in her pink ballgown from The Little Mermaid 2… and since there’s nothing I love more than a big fluffy ballgown, I was excited to tackle this project, which I thought would be fairly easy.  Rather, it should have been quite easy, but due to a combination of stress, extreme busyness, and tiredness and a lack of motivation on my part, this gown turned into a frustrating project that I had to slog through.
