Weekly Wrap Up: July 23-29

My summer class is finally over! Now I have a two-week break (in which I have to make my final comic con costume) and then my fall semester starts!

Back in May, I got my Rey costume mostly done for a party where I had to go dressed as Rey (it was Star Wars themed and the guest of honor was so shocked and excited). I just need to add detail to my boots, the strap to my staff and finished the bag.

My second cosplay is Clary from the Shadowhunters series. I just received the wig that I will be wearing yesterday, so I cut and styled it a little. (If you want to see it, it’ll still be on my Instagram stories for a few hours.) Has anyone cosplayed as a character with a vastly different hair colour than their own? I’m mostly worried about attempting to change the colour of my eyebrows, since they’re wicked dark (even though my hair isn’t, who can explain) and I think it looks a little silly as a ginger. I’ve been Clary before, but I never had the ginger wig so I’m excited!

My final cosplay is Moana (at least my dark eyebrows are useful somewhere?) and that’s what I have to do the most work on. I have the fabric and that’s it. Now I need to attempt to make her entire outfit. Wish me luck?

    I LOVE seeing all of the cosplay costumes at NYCCC, Moana is a fave! 🙌🏼 I hope you have a blast! I haven’t read Heart Of Thorns yet but plan on picking it up soon since I believe it’s in a subscription box I’ll be receiving soon. Undead Girl Gang was so good! 💜 I just finished reading the graphic novel Check, Please! & it was SUPER cute! Not sure what I’ll be reading next though, Happy Reading! ☺️💕

      It’s amazing what some people do for their costumes… I am a very inexperienced sew-er so all I do is hope that it’s decent. I’m glad to hear that undead girl gang was really good because I just started it yesterday!

        I can’t sew a hole in my sock so I find costume makers to be phenomenal magic wielders 😂💕 I hope you enjoy Undead Girl Gang 😃

      I am currently sewing my Moana skirt. I just finished pinning it and now it’s actually going to start coming together.
