This was a really cute cosplay project we decided to tackle. Biggest challenge was figuring out the proportions of each clothing piece; how do you make yourself look like a cartoon character that's like...2 feet tall? Anyway, we had fun!
Sugar Rush Say Cheese! Don't Be A Stinkbrain!Character: Vanellope Von Schweetz
Movie: Wreck-It Ralph
Year Made: 2013
Debuted: Otakon 2013
About: Uber cute, strangely nostalgic, awesome characters, heartfelt moments; what's there not to like about this movie? Vanellope was seriously the greatest, so of course I wanted to cosplay her, and OF COURSE it was perfect because...I had another excuse to eat candy all the time. 8D *rosieru-chan helped me make the leggings and spent a reeeally long time painting stripes and also made me my awesome skirt!
Pros: The overall thing is mostly comfortable. And I was very proud to get the color I wanted dyeing my sweater fabric. I'm also super happy with that skirt (thanks Kimmy!) and how it looks like a reese cup~ Also I tackled my first stubbed wig (albeit with lots of help), and I'm very pleased with the results!
Cons: In the heat it could get hot reeeaaally fast, so I had to make sure no candy melted off my wig. The tights were probably the most uncomfortable part, with the mixing of fabrics and the paint making it feel really awkward. Thankfully it doesn't look it though; I'll be more careful next time with fabric choices!
