I finally got around to editing and adding pics of my Nathan Drake and Zombie Princess Bubblegum cosplay! I have such great memories wearing both of these to Wondercon. With Drake, it meant so much to me when people noticed my leather craftsmanship and shared their love of Uncharted with me. For PB, I loved that kids would point to me and say “It’s Princess Bubblegum!!” and sometimes get a little scared once seeing that I had a zombie face. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did wearing them!
Now that Wondercon is over and I’m recovering from con-flu, I thought I would do a quick tutorial on how I made my Princess Bubblegum crown. I knew that I wanted it to be sturdy and firm since a lot of the ones I’ve seen are made of one piece of foam or look more flimsy. I decided to take the idea of using foam and add to that by using Wonderflex. I know that Worbla is the new Wonderflex, but I had lots of Wonderflex left from my She-Ra cosplay and knew that I could put it to good use.
Another cosplay update! Wondercon is less than two weeks away and no matter how much advance prepping I do, it always seems to be down to the wire. I’m especially busy since I’ll be traveling prior to Wondercon and need to make sure everything is wrapped up before next week. Eek!
Since my last update, I’ve been wrapping up my Nathan Drake cosplay and sort of just starting out on my Princess Bubblegum cosplay. I finally got around to cutting my PB wig and started testing out some makeup for her zombified look. Yup, as you can tell, I’ll be cosplaying zombie Princess Bubblegum, complete with grey skin and lab coat. I’m hoping that I can shock a few people with my creepy PB look, especially since I’ll just look like a typical PB from behind. hehe.
