In light of the fact that I have to skip NYCC for financial reasons (sorry), and because Sheryl Chee is a helper, I may as well show you guys what we’re going to be wearing at Geek Girl Con when we cosplay on the Saturday! (we’re street clothes-ing it on Sunday)
As I said, Sheryl is an enabler, so I’m going to be wearing some kind of Izzy—old Izzy, repaired Izzy, just-makeup-and-accessories Izzy … remains to be seen. But Some Kinna Izzy. I’m also wearing the Orlesian Noble Gown because I made a fucking ballgown, guys.
For Beth, we’re hoping to finish her DA:I Cassandra!! We wanted to make it for PAX Prime, but the limited time frame and expensive-ass cat surgery made us delay the costume until now. But we’re super excited to debut this! Beth has been practicing her “BULLSHIT!”
This is probably a bad time to let you guys know that these are probably the last new costumes we’re going to be making for a while—we’re thoroughly burnt out (in energy as well as financially). While we’ll still be attending some cons next year in our existing costumes, I wouldn’t anticipate seeing any new projects until at least halfway through next year. I have a lot of work and other freelance projects coming up, so cosplay is going to have to take a step back for the time being. I’ll still be online and my usual derpy self, but not crafting anything new. :C
Oh, right! Here was the worst-kept secret: Lorena, Claire, Natalie, and I made Ass Creed IV costumes for SDCC XD Thank you to the Ubi-Team for inviting us down this year! I literally wouldn’t have been at SDCC without them, and since I met so many amazing people at the con this year, I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity :D
Here are some initial photos—two from our adventures throughout the day, and one preview from Devin Super Tramp’s next AC Parkour Vid!!!!
First two photos by Parvez Lahka, AC com dev extraordinaire; third photo by Devin Super Tramp!
Amazing work from some awesome ladies!
I randomly bumped into this amazing Aria cosplayer, otherwise known as the fabulous Emmabellish! (yaaaaaay I have a name for her now) She’s super sweet and the costume was fantastic in person—really looking forward to seeing her at a con again, and what costumes she has planned next :D
Also, in true KH style, I’m imagining Sora, Donald, and Goofy helping Aria to take back Omega, and getting a great giggle out of it.

I would play this DLC :D
Kind of a Daily Duckie, right? Quick floor shot of my Sora, featuring Donald and Goofy, from SDCC! Thanks to my friend Jerome for the photo :)
@subitoallegra at SDCC :D I’m very happy with how this turned out. Can’t believe how quickly I pumped out the bits that were mine to work on.
Beth is hard at work on the sculpt for Sleeping Lion’s head; I’m going a little crazy trying to sew these wefts into Sora’s wig.
Beth’s hands are pink from the oils in the clay. I just … don’t particularly want to deal with hair anymore .__.
Sculpting!!! This is nerve wracking yet so relaxing after a day at the office :) Wefts are creepy! So happy that I’m not on wig duty.

Photographer: The AMAZING JwaiDesign Photography
You can see my dramatically lit Butt Stallion sitting on top of my bag which is one of my favorite parts of the costume :D This was super fun. Can’t wait to post the rest of the shots later.
Note: No puppies were harmed in the making of this outfit ;)
Well, this is creepy. Some friends just alerted me to the fact that an eBay listing is using cropped photos of me to promote their Lady Maverick Tailor-Made costume…. And you’d better fucking believe that neither I, nor any of the three photographers whose work was stolen gave permission to use this.
We’ve already gone ahead and reported it, but this is mostly just a warning that you should not buy anything from eBay seller bluestar1-hk. It looks like they’ve stolen at least a few other “product photos” from other cosplayers and photographers as well.
Not to mention how disgusting it is to see my head (and the photographers’ watermarks) chopped off to sell a product…. My instinct was to make a self-deprecating joke, but honestly, I’m too grossed out.
Original photos by Sweet Sensation Photography, Ron “Spidey” Gejon, and Jeff @ i360.com. Cosplayer is subitoallegra, and I am most certainly not for sale from the neck down for $113. That ain’t for sale.

I am looking at the differences between the two suits of armor… I know, shocking. I’m seriously wanting to make one of them (probably the Krypton era one) but I notice a lot of differences between the two that would result in great differences in mobility. At any rate, not happening this year since I have a lot on my plate but maybe next year. Going to require a lot of sculpting and casting :)
I have the most adorkable cosplay partner
Progress on my girl!Sora! With the KH3 announce, I felt inspired to finish adding the zipper to the jacket. I still need to add the little pockets and finish the hood, and obviously add the armor and straps (though armor is Beth’s work), and then the jacket, at least, will be done! Skirt needs bags and straps, chain on the necklace should be shorter, and then the rest of the costume needs to … costume. Shoes, gloves, and wig. You know the deal.
Also, I have BB Donald on my shoulder, but my attempt to do a silly Sora pose blocked out the work I’ve done on his outfit. I’ll get some more work done on him and Goofy and take a proper picture soon.
Hey there! I have a accumulated a lot of great references over time and I thought I’d share them. If at any time these links go dead, shoot me a message and I’ll fix it! Happy cosplaying!
