Serious Cosplay

DragonCon ended just a couple hours ago, and already I am thinking about my costumes, and how to improve them.

This year my major costume was The Dark Lord himself. It was tge first time I have ever cosplayed Voldemort, and I worked with a makeup artist who did a wonderful job!

However I think next time I want to create a prosthetic nose cover made out of gel. From what I see online this will make it easier for me to blend the makeup.

I have heard from other cosplayers that you learn something new each time you wear a costume, and I guess I have.

116. Halloween Memories

This morning I was scanning Google Reader and this picture popped up into my screen. It stopped me dead in my tracks. This is the very costume that I wore for years as a kid. My mom made it for me one year for halloween, and I was thrilled! For years afterward it was my costume of choice both for Halloween, and for other events.

One such event included my sister Jessica, and I dressing up and acting out scenes from Phantom of the Opera. My sister would play Christine and I would, in my Batman outfit, play the Phantom of the Opera. The consisted of me chasing my sister around our living room and her hiding in between the bookshelves. We also liked playing out the beginning auction scene from the musical.

For years this costume brought me so much fun and enjoyment. It was my first cosplay. I really enjoyed those times.
