I thought 2018 would be the year to go all out and make up a full cosplay. This was also my first time buying a wig. That year I watched Scott Pilgrim vs the World for the first time (I don’t know why I didn’t watch it way earlier) and I thought Ramona Flowers look totally badass and her outfit was goals. So I decided to try cosplaying as her. I scored different parts of the costume from Savers (thrift store) and a bunch of other shops and I used my own boots I already had. The hammer was tricky because originally I was making it out of foam but that was kind of a disaster. My mum and her partner actually work next to a factory that had a different type of foam and they ended up making the hammer for me with the heavy part made out of a solid block of foam. It was also spray painted. All I had to do was weather it by scratching some paint off with sand paper.
The wig was a little tough too. It was my first time styling and cutting a wig so I bought a really long Nyx Dark Blue wig so I had a lot (maybe too much) to work with. Then I darkened the bottom layers with black ink. I honestly think I did a good job. I was really proud of the cosplay.
