geeklurv is a website I’ve currently become affiliated with and they’re hosting a contest of sorts to encourage people to subscribe. By collecting all of the cosplayers associated with the website(you can find them on the facebook page, as well as more information on the website), you can save up to 73% of your initial subscription fee(redeemable through 2013).
There are also other codes you can enter to help you save so you can continue a discounted subscription as long as you keep up with the codes.
I look forward to working more with the GL group and I’ll even be able to visit more out of state conventions thanks to them. :)
Let’s back-track a few months~ lol
So this is really random, but I’m pretty sure I took a picture with you at my first anime convention, the summer Sac Anime in 2012! You were the Raven cosplayer, right? :D It’s crazy cuz you’ve become one of my favorite blogs here on tumblr. And you seem like such an awesome person. Now I’m just like, aaah I took a picture with her! Lol, okay sorry I’m being weird now. ^-^ *bows down*
LOL YEAH THAT’S ME. It was my first time wearing this costume, actually. I totally remember you, too! :D And thank you so much~ I’m glad you consider mine one of your favorites. x3
Oh my gosh thank you so much!! I don’t really know what to say to this, I’m blushing like a drunk! xD
It is in my faq! :]
Where did you get your tights/gloves?
From welovecolor! In color “Light Grey.”
Here’s the tights, specifically.
Thanks! :D I made it myself. :3 I list details in my construction on my Cosplay FAQ page. Let me know if you have any additional questions!
I know this was supposed to be a complement but… Why would you hate cosplays, though? :[ Like, cosplay is for fun, we’re all nerds dressing up in costume, why the hate? I bet you would have hated my first version of the costume when I was 15 and didn’t know much of anything about making things like that. :[
There are different types of cosplayers and different levels in each type, but we’re all constantly changing and growing and getting better as long as there are people who support and encourage us to do so. *u*
And you know, maybe you don’t actually “hate” the cosplays that people do of her, maybe you were just indifferent to them and that was just a bad word choice, but that’s just something I don’t like seeing. :C
I am extremely happy that you liked my cosplay, though! But a lot of credit for that dramatic photo has to go to the photographer (prototypem.deviantart.com) who got the angle, lighting, and timing perfect in order to achieve that image.
I’m just a nerd in a costume. lol
Throwback Thursday: My Red-Raven costume from…’09 I think. The construction was pretty shoddy, but the eyes lit up with LEDs :)
SO COOL! I wanted to do something similar to this with my Raven, but just her white glow-y eyes.
I just made my cosplay faq this morning with pictures included. :] I believe your questions can be answered in that post! And let me know if you have any specific questions that I didn’t cover!
I made it. :3
I’m not very good at explaining things, so here’s a picture!
The cape itself is patterned as a quarter circle. If your fabric is wide enough, you can cut it out as drawn above. If not, you can cut it out as an eighth of a circle(where I drew the dashed line). In the end, the cape will be a half circle and drape nicely. :]
As for the hood, it’s pretty simple. The drawing shows the pattern drawn in profile. The dashed line is what most hood patterns look like, but for Raven you need the point, so just re-draw it to get the shape you want. :]
