Cosplay Costumes at Gencon 2015!

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

Every year I head out to Gen Con – the largest gaming convention in the midwest and it’s awesome!! I usually dress up a day or two because well, it’s so fun to be able to transform into something else for a day!

This year I went as a gothic lolita unicorn on friday:

I love the unicorn horn on this one (though it leaves a pretty funny mark on my forehead for like 12 hours after I wear it!) The bad part is that I never really bothered to take any close ups of the horn, but I wore it last year if you want to see me as a BLUE lolita unicorn!

And on saturday I wore my first full length costume! The grey part of my dress is actually the bottom of my wedding dress from 11 years ago (I can’t believe I actually got to wear it again), with two petticoats underneath and a shorter cage hoop above it (trust me, it was quite awkward when i had to use the ladies’ room ;-)

I know this pic isn’t a great one with my “serious face” but I love the handmade headdress (it has real antlers on it – I’m so happy I found it!) and the grey wig! If you love the wig as much as I do, I sell it at Shana Logic in a bunch of different colors by Lady Like Wigs – this one is platinum grey).

As is pretty normal when you wear a costume at gen con, you pose for a lot of pictures but you also get to meet a TON of great cosplayers and enthusiasts which is super fun!

I had a lot of costume favorites, but it’s so hard to find them online (I didn’t take any photos myself this year!). I did find my absolute favorite:

and let’s finish the fun off with one of my favorite duos, bee and puppycat! A super easy but very iconic cosplay:

I also want to mention that cosplay is for EVERYONE! If you feel like dressing up as anyone or anything, you should go for it! I’m 39 years old and I walked in the costume parade next to a lovely 54 year old steampunk woman and that’s just super badass!
