Normally I don't like uploading convention snapshots
, but this picture is too nice not to share. It was taken at Kapow! Comic Convention
one month ago.
A few weeks before the convention was about to take place I felt like making another costume to wear there. I was a lot into Journey Into Mystery
back then. Therefore I decided to go for Leah
, because I really liked her sarcastic attitude and her character design. I love fantasy outfits, but I had never had the opportunity to make one before. Consequently Leah
was the perfect character so cosplay.
As soon as I had decided to go for Leah
everything went down. Honestly, I felt like some higher power was keeping me from making this costume. The bias tape I wanted to buy was out of stock, it was nearly impossible to find a proper black wig and the shop I ordered fabric from sent it to me in a completely wrong colour. In retrospect I think I was rather lucky to finish the costume in time.
Besides that I would have never expected the costume to be received so well at the convention. Many people knew who I was and took pictures. Even Mr. Kieron Gillen
and Mr. Dough Braithwaite
seemed to like it. I had a great time!
At this point I'd also like to thank Holly
for cosplaying with me! She makes an incredible Kid!Loki
. I'm normally not a person to make funny faces, but her attitude encouraged me. You could say she brought out the "best" in me. Haha. Anyways, it was a pleasure to cosplay with you! Thank you very much! ♥Formalicy: Lilistprince
