As a Transformers fan, I find that this fandom is a HARD fandom to cosplay from. I don't know how to do any rigs, so I immediately decided upon cosplaying Carly Witwicky. She does not have many costumes in the history of Transformers, so I thought it would be fun to do one from Animated since she was in it for a mere three minutes. I tell ya though, it was hard to figure out how to construct this costume because of the lack of references.
Turanga Leela - Futurama
First worn: Colossalcon 2013
What was made: Leela's arm band.
Materials: craft foam, paint & hot glue.
Items gathered: gun, tank top, leggings, wig (from ebay) & boots
Mabel Pines - Gravity Falls
First worn: Tekkoshocon 2013
What was made: skirt
Items gathered: headband, wig (Arda-Wigs), & shoes
I had been looking to cosplay Mabel since the moment I had seen Gravity Falls. I did not know what to do about Mabel's sweaters. There were so many ideas on how to go about it, but I wanted it to be true to knitting. I had found playswithstring on cosplay.com, who kindly was awesome enough to commission this sweater for me!It came out as perfectly as I imagine. I can't wait to commission another sweater from her in the near future!
Meg Griffin - Family Guy
First worn: Animarathon 2013
