I just wanted to thank everyone for the feedback on whether or not I should create a Twitter account for preview shots of costumes. I did indeed make an account, so if you wish to follow me I'm @AmmieDesigns
I will be uploading WIP, teaser shots and never before seen costumes that I will be photographing in the next few months. If you're interested in seeing what costumes I will be uploading next on here, go ahead and check it out! I will also be uploading commission shots of completed projects. So if you have a commission pending from me, you can see what it looks like via Twitter.
My last minute event is International Sailor Moon Day Toronto
. I am the cosplay guest of honor! Thanks to the organizers for wanting to invite me to this event. As everyone knows I am a major Sailor Moon fan and I have actually cosplayed every Sailor Senshi at this point. I will be running at least 2 workshops there for Sailor Moon costume construction. They have a poll on their Facebook page asking attendees which workshops they would prefer.
I am still up in the air about which costume I should wear, but I think it's down to either Sailor Neptune or Emerald.
I will still be at London Comic Con, but only for Friday and Saturday. I have a split workshop I will be running Saturday morning at 10:30am on leather mask forming followed by Sailor Moon bow tutorials. The Sunday I am off the Sailor Moon event.
I did attend Fanexpo Toronto for 2 days (Saturday and Sunday) and despite it being super packed, I actually did have a good time. I was part of a Bioshock Infinite group on Saturday and I am just awaiting the photos. I got a lot of compliments on my Elizabeth dress, I'd like to thank everyone for the lovely comments on the dress! I also wore Black Widow on Sunday.
The only guest I went to go meet was Robin Lord Taylor. I brought photos on my phone of my Gotham Penguin cosplay to show him and he was beyond impressed by it! He told me it was the best cosplay he had ever seen, and not just because it was of him. He was very impressed with the attention to detail and care that went into it and said he was honored and flattered. I feel like that was the final stamp of approval on that costume effort. The Penguin costume was one I was really nervous to do since I don't look a thing like the character. I did gain the skill level to work with prosthetic makeup and that will come in handy in future costumes, as I have a classic Joker cosplay planned for the near future!
I did finally finish my Sailor Moon costume tutorial and I will be uploading it on here very soon. It's a very in depth and lengthy tutorial containing about 20 pages of photos and a walk through on how I make the fuku's.
Keep a look out for that if you're interested on how I make a Sailor Moon costume from start to finish!
Till next time!
