I’ve been cosplaying since 2009.
What got me into cosplaying was when I was in middle school I wanted to be a Manga artist. My parents bought me a “How to Draw Manga for Dummies” book and in the back, it had a list of conventions. So I decided to look up what conventions were and when I did, I practically died inside. I was so amazed! I flipped through pictures of cons and saw all the cosplays and thought, HEY! I WANNA DO THAT! So when my first con, Dragon*Con, was approaching, I decided to try to put something together. I didn’t care if it was just stuff I pulled out of my closet and that I didn’t have a wig… I was happy. I had a blast putting it together and when I got to Dragon*Con and saw all of those amazing cosplays, my love for it grew ten-fold! I knew in that moment that I had to pursue this passion.
My latest cosplay was Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians. I chose this character because, first off, the movie was beautifully animated. I love animation and seeing this movie made my jaw drop. Also, when I was little I loved the claymation Jack Frost movie. And when Rise of the Guardians came out, I knew I had to see it. It brought back my childhood and my love for Jack Frost!
My Jack Frost cosplay was surprisingly easy to make.I bought a navy blue hoodie and brown leggings at Wal-Mart. I then painted both the hoodie and leggings with white and sparkly fabric paint from Micheal’s. I cut the bottom of my leggings to give it a “worn-look” and then wrapped twine around the shins. My staff was made out off PVC pipe and papier-mache. Once I had super glued the pipe together and wrapped it with papier-mache, I sprayed painted it a “wooden” color and blotted white paint on it to give it a “frosty” look. And then came the wig.
I found out about Epic Cosplay through recommendations from cosplay.com. I did my research and figured out who sold the best wigs and where I could find one that was perfect for my cosplay. When I stumbled upon the Hermes – 12″ * Boycut Men’s Silver Short Cosplay Wig * I was like, THAT’S IT. I FOUND IT. I FOUND IT. And I bought it. I was so happy when I got it. My wig was just what I wanted. It was the perfect color and I didn’t have to worry about trimming the bangs. It was also comfortable to my surprise. I was a bit worried that my head would be itching but it didn’t. I was extremely happy.
I do plan on continuing with cosplay. The next cosplay I’m hoping to do is Asuna Yuuki from Sword Art Online.
I truly love cosplaying. It makes me come out of my shell and allows me to be me. I love dressing up, putting make-up on, and pretending to be someone else. I don’t think I’ll ever stop cosplaying. It has given me so many happy memories. I just never want to stop.
