Have you ever looked in the mirror and realized that you’re unintentionally cosplaying? Well, the other day I had one of those moments. I was wearing my favorite striped dress and decided I needed a light jacket to wear over it. Fall is all about layering so I put on an army shirt with a light hoodie underneath. I was halfway through my day when I suddenly realized who I resembled – Ramona Flowers. Granted, Ramona Flowers has SO many looks in not only the comic and the movie, but something about my outfit totally reminded me of her or even a version of a cosplay that I had seen before. Perhaps it was a combination of the blue hair, the military shirt over a hoodie, the stripes, or the stars on my bag, but I’m sure deep down I was ready to save the world.
It’s officially October, which for me means some crazy pumpkin project, lots of candy, and of course costumes. Sadly, I won’t actually be at home this year for Halloween since I will be spending the weekend at COMIKAZE!! More on that later, but in the spirit of October and making homemade costumes, here are some of my many tutorials that I’ve written up over the past 7 years or so that will hopefully inspire some easy Halloween costume ideas. So if you’re looking for ideas or not sure how to get started on a costume, definitely check these out!
