How do, everyone! You’ve read my posts detailing my progress on my Rosalina cosplay, and now it’s time to see the fruits of my labor in action. Or something like that. I went to the first of the two comicons I attend each year, and everything went great. People seemed to really like my costume, and I got many requests for photos and even a video clip for someone’s Youtube channel! I’m gonna be on Youtube…again! Yes! If you want to read a more detailed account of my experience, please check out my post on United We Game. And stick around, because you guys are in for something a little special, my photo tour of the comicon. Enjoy!
I started my day nice and early, as I wanted to give myself plenty of time to get my costume on. While the dress was quite easy, my wig was quite a pain. I hate putting on wigs because it’s always annoying getting my hair under the wig cap so that none of it sticks out later. It’s not a good look to have your real hair showing under the wig. Fortunately, I’ve found a company that sells really good quality wigs for low prices, YOPO, I believe. These wigs are soft, they fit really well, and they look real. Seriously, could you tell that was a wig if I didn’t just say so? And I have to say, the best part of any cosplay is the first time you put it all on and see the finished result. I always wait until the morning of the comicon to put my costume on in its entirety because it’s so exciting to see everything come together.
When I arrived at the comicon and entered the main hall, what do I see but two more Rosalina’s some distance to my right. It was clear they had seen me, as well, and we headed straight for each other and took some photos. I call us “the Rosalina trio”. Not the most creative name out there, but it fits.
I bought a bunch of cool things here. It was a very FNAF-themed day for me, as I got five FNAF prints and a Freddy plushie to join the Foxy plush I got for Christmas. All I need now is Bonnie, and my collection is complete (there is no Chica plush, for some reason).
I had to return to the car halfway through the day so I could leave my stuff in the trunk. Since this was a fairly small comicon, the streets were pretty empty. Let me tell you, it’s a lot more crowded during the other comicon.
The first person I saw upon returning to the comicon was Zero Suit Samus. It’s good to know Samus enjoys hanging out at the comicon, as well.
The comicon was very busy at this point, and I started having people asking me for pictures left and right. At one point, Batman came up and asked if his daughter could have her picture taken with me.
I also caught sight of the Marionette from FNAF 2 and onward. Spooky.
Despite buying everything I wanted at this point (aside from the Bonnie plush, but I have to save something for the next comicon), I continued to stroll about for just a while longer to check out the sights. Here I am in front of some random booths.
Knitted things were definitely in today. This vendor sold lots of knitted things. In this photo, you can see a knitted Stitch and a knitted Jack Skellington and Sally. They also had Harry Potter, among others. They were pretty cute.
It was finally time to go, at last. Once I got home, I couldn’t bring myself to change out of my costume just yet, so I took a few more pictures to remember the day by. (I feel a bit arrogant taking so many photos of myself….)
And let’s not forget knitted Tom Servo, whom I bought for my parents. Because MST3K is the greatest TV show of all time.
And there you have it. It was a really fun day, and I’m pleased that I finally got some photos of other cosplayers for once. I always plan to, but I always forget. Silly me. I hope you guys enjoyed, and I can’t wait to share with you my experience cosplaying as Vanille. Knowing people’s less than stellar views on the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, I sure hope people will like my efforts. She is the best character of the series, after all.
