this is my first post for a cosplay event for the year!
this sunday passed was the day of the Midsummer Faerie Rade 2015! it was a sort of last minute costume get together for me because i didn't realise how close the event was as i was thinking about it!
After stressing for a bit about what i was going to wear I played with some character creators as to what kind of look i was thinking of making and wanted to wear then it was off to spotlight!
I wasn't wanting a complicated costume or anything really cliche faerie and at the time I was busying myself with the making of this bow that after a small time ended up being my main prop for the costume. Made from foam board and super glue then decorated with pink gem stones and pink glitter for some more interesting design.
A sort of archer fae kind of design then came to be my costume design and direction and within three days I had a costume that i would be able to wear comfortably and happily for the day!
Had a really wonderful day meeting some wonderful people with awesome costumes and it was just a nice day all up.
A nice lady came up to me at one point and gave me a small bag saying mine was one of her favourite costumes for the day. In the small bag was some chocolate coins and a necklace that matched my costume! I was so touched!
Below is my favourite photo from the day that i've seen so far! MFM Photography has a real eye for capturing costumes and I often bump into him at events and conventions though i don't think he recognizes me because my costumes area always so different!
keep posted as i'm planning a picture tutorial for making your own foam board bow and maybe even some bamboo arrows as i did.
