My Deviant Page has definitely been in need of some cosplay updates...so here they are!
We got off to a rough start this convention season. Bllacksheep
and I's first conventions of the year were going to be Anime Boston and Pax East, yet due to an unfortunate situation we had to cancel our plans to attend. This kinda broke my heart because Anime Boston has been one of my favorite cons, and this woulda been our first year at Pax.... But
stuff happens and we must cosplay on.
It also took us a while to settle on a new costume pair, but we finally got that all set too. Costumes
This year we're focusing on a duo from League of Legends. We wanted to do a costume that had a nature/shaman sorta feel cuz we both like that aesthetic... we considered other costumes like the Witchdoctor from Diablo or Headhunter costumes from LoL. However, we realized that we wanted a design that was different from our other costumes - or to say it bluntly, we didn't want to do another cosplay that focused on armor.
We felt like Zyra and Maokai fit within these perimeters. Their outfits are more about texture and skin transformation than straps and individual pieces. We've begun construction on the outfits and plan to wear them to the majority of our conventions this year. We've been posting updates and work in progress photos on our Facebook
...so feel free to follow along!
We've also been working on a few smaller costumes to wear on Sunday's (because our backs and feet are usually DESTROYED) so we'll probably be wearing our new Scott Pilgram costumes or another simple set from League of Legends (forecast Janna?
Our planned conventions so far. Crossing my fingers that there won't be any more last minute cancelling.
Happy Cosplay! Hope we get to run into a few of at these cons!
