Luna Zhiri 2014

Here is another mini gallery posting, again with Casey Kwock as the photographer. His facebook page can be found HERE!! Go check it out! Some of my followers may remember this costume from a contest I entered with it at LBCC. Until then it was kept in storage and brought out just for this photoshoot. Unfortunately it wasn’t returned to storage right away and it spent an unusually hot day in the car. The heat melted a good portion of the wonderflex armor and effectively ruined the costume shortly after the shoot. I haven’t tried to repair it yet, but as of now this costume is retired.

For those unfamiliar with this costume, it is based on the Neverwinter MMO armor seen in the character creator for Devoted Clerics. Luna Zhiri is my original character used in various stories and a pirate themed Dungeons and Dragons campaign. She’s a tiefling and her backstory is super convoluted and complicated so I won’t bore anyone here with the details. Instead, enjoy the details of the costume!!

Fancy Harley Quinn 2014

I know I’ve been quiet here for a while, but I’ve been busy and haven’t had much to show in ways of project works in progress.  So here are a few pictures from my most recent photoshoot with Casey Kwock. Be sure to check out his facebook page> HERE!!

I even got to have my make-up professionally done. I’ll post the link to the makeup artist as soon as I’m able to find one!

This costume’s original idea was to do a ballgown style Harley Quinn, but I wasn’t able to find a good pattern to use. Instead I went with a Simplicity pattern that had more of a steampunk/Victorian feel to it. Overall I am pretty happy with the result. The wig is a little (actually alot) too small for my head so it’s really just pinned awkwardly in place. As always, if anyone has any questions about construction or anything at all, let me know! I am more than happy to help out and I always try to answer as quick as possible.

Out of 100+ pictures these were my favorites:

Phat Con 2014

I recently heard of a small convention called Phat Con hosted by Phat Collectibles. My good friend, That Vegan Cosplayer, invited me to go. This week’s been long for me so I wasn’t sure if I was feeling up to it. But I’m glad I went! I didn’t dress up or anything, which is kind of a bummer for me but all my costumes are in storage. There were a lot of really well done cosplays there, all very high quality and you can tell that everyone there takes great pride in their work. It was held in a room at Dave and Busters (which gives you an idea of how small it was). It’s a great con for anyone who is local, but because of the tiny size its not something I would recommend traveling more than an hour to attend. The nice thing about a small convention like this is that you get a chance to see everything you want and talk to everyone you want to talk to. I felt like the people there were more friendly and open than at some of the larger cons. It was basically just a big hang out for fans of all sorts, with a few artists, some cosplay groups, and a handful of vendors.

My favorite booth was the Young Justice: Abduction group. They are a group of cosplayers who act and star in a web series based on Young Justice. Check them out here> http://www.youtube.com/user/ComicBooked

They were doing a raffle for anyone who likes their facebook page but since Alex and I both worked on the game they gave us both prize packs!!

Luna Zhiri- My Last Cosplay of 2013

So I have neglected to post any real pictures of my newest cosplay- Luna Zhiri the tiefling devoted cleric. She’s the last cosplay of the year and I even won a little prize in the LBCC cosplay contest with her!

This character is a combination of my favorite aspects of Dungeons and Dragons. She’s my favorite race, tiefling, and she’s a healer- my favorite role to play. I used the Neverwinter MMO character builder armor as her outfit. The armor in that game is so pretty and inspirational (and its free to play!) If I had more time I would write a short story to describe her history. Hopefully once my D&D group starts up our Friday games again I will have the chance to play her and develop her character more. Until then, here’s a gallery of my Zhiri cosplay!

Long Beach Comic Con 2013 Recap

It’s been just about a week since Long Beach Comic Con and now with the long weekend I have some time to post about it. I went with my usual crowd, my boyfriend, sister, and cosplay partner That Vegan Cosplayer. We all had a great time and I highly recommend the con to anyone in the area. Park is easy, the registration is super quick, and the crowd is one of the friendliest of any con I have been too. I met some super awesome people there including Angel Frost (you may have seen his Doc Ock costume), Vince Martinez (the Sandiego Bumblebee), and Jarod: Nwbzpwnr.

I also made a new facebook page for my cosplay. If anyone would like to check it out they can find it here> https://www.facebook.com/FrekkiCosplay

Anyways, I guess we didn’t get as many pictures as I thought or they got lost… but I only have a couple to show.

Comikaze 2013 Gallery

So last weekend was Comikaze 2013. Due to work and a tight schedule, I missed out on Friday. Saturday went pretty well, parking was easy and there was next to no line for the actual badge pickup- much better than last year’s fiasco. I bought That Vegan Cosplayer’s ticket as an early birthday gift. She came dressed as Poison Ivy, I dressed as my Devoted Cleric Tiefling, my sister was Teto (a volcaloid that I am unfamiliar with), and my boyfriend Alex came as the ever faithful bag carrier! We all had a great time and saw some pretty cool stuff, but in general the con seemed smaller than last year. While there were some epicly fantastic cosplays, overall there were less people in costume. We all took some pictures of our favorite cosplays and I’d like to share those with you here. In my next post I will put up the pictures of my group specifically, so stay tuned for that!

I’ll do my best to label these but forgive me if I get a name wrong…
