Hair, hair hair. So much hair and an odd accessory, the crotch mirror. This was made as a part of the HCC San Diego Comic-Con 2007 cosplay group. Due to the back hair piece / wing-type configuration, I was always unable to take it to another con. It used to be the case that Southwest would let you check three bags and the box that back part lived in would be my third. That has long since gone away, a relic of cosplay days gone by.
My happiest memories of this costume are actually from the night before the masquerade – sitting in the hotel room with close friends, helping hand sew some final snaps and details while eating cheese, drinking juice and laughing. This is part of the reason I try to get my costumes done way before the convention. It’s that last minute bonding time with others that I really enjoy. So, if you’re ever at a convention cosplaying with me and need some snaps sewn, let me know!
