Dresses

The weather is nicer, which makes me excited for dresses. I wouldn't normally buy white or even blue, however I couldn't pass up this dress with my hair. It was also 50% off!

Cosplay: Booker DeWitt

Bioshock Infinite is an amazing game, easily one of my favorites. Incredible story, plus steampunk designs, compelling characters, first person shooter, perfect twist...I could go on. Last expo I almost had a chance to meet Troy Baker, the voice actor of Booker DeWitt. I was ready, and beside myself with excitement... then he canceled.

I thought maybe, perhaps, he'd reschedule for the next year. So on my way home from Expo 2017 I started planning my rendition of Booker DeWitt. Initial ideas and drawings, lots of back and forth with my seamstress, found a sky hook, deposit paid, costume made...

Troy was not a guest this year, but I was still incredibly proud to bring Booker to life in my own way. My cosplay journey continues.

My motivation...

Cosplay

Expo weekend has come and gone! This year I went with someone who was an incredible support for my cosplay. I have several costumes that I've designed and planned, put so much work into and never been able to wear to expo as the person I went with did not support me. They felt that if I were in costume they HAD to be and since they didn't have something to wear, I couldn't. This year was different.

I planned my Booker costume for Saturday only, yet was encouraged (and convinced) to wear my long standing Steampunk Fairy that I've never had the chance to wear at Expo. Glad I did! I had so many compliments and support for my fairy costume. Was a huge motivation to continue my cosplay journey, plan more costumes and even better my fairy for next year.

Support each other! Cosplay for you, not for others. No one commented on my Booker costume, but I still loved wearing it after the planning that went into it. I was proud of my design and version of Booker. Ideas swirling for next year already and I am so incredibly excited! Now just to find a bag of money...
