A Fangirl Friday to Remember…

I was selected as Fangirl of the Day over at Her Universe’s blog for December 5th! Another River Song cosplayer alerted me and it made my morning! 🙂 Thank you for featuring me, Her Universe! Please keep making pretty Whovian things! 😀

People cosplay for a lot of different reasons. For me, my main goals are:

+ Creativity. I love the challenge of recreating a particular look, especially with a set budget. On a rare occasion, I’ll splurge on a screen accurate River Song item. For the Moment/Bad Wolf costume I’m working on, my skills at destressing and aging have come in handy. So far I’ve tea stained and seam ripped and primed and I’m not even half way done. I’ll also need to destress my husband’s War Doctor jacket and scarf.

+ Self confidence. Cosplay gets me out of my loner corner and talking to people I’ve never met before. I’m actually quite shy–but fun–when I’m not in costume. Cosplay just cuts out all the small talk, because it makes my interests evident. Plus, having a catch phrase — “Hello Sweetie!” — is super helpful.

Speaking of new cosplays, here’s a little preview. You can catch more over at All Back to Front, if that’s your sort of thing. I also have a couple of Geek Outfits of the Week up my sleeve for December.
