So my buddy Kim (affectionately known as Noodles) and I are going as our favourite Pokemon this year to FanExpo in November!
I will of course be going as Charizard because CHARIZARD. Haha!
I just finished my concept for it today after playing Twilight Princess HD for several hours with my man (hehe) and put together all of my references and to-do lists using the really awesome Cosplanner app that Noodles' recommended to me. If you are at all into cosplay, you should definitely check it out! It helps give you an overview of how much work you still need to do which is extremely motivating!
I already have all of my fabric with the exception of the material I will need for the wings. I also still need to order my horns which I will mostly likely get from the same amazing company that did my Maleficent horns (which were a HUGE hit) and I also need to buy my Charizardite necklace.
I opted for smaller wings since I am also making veil poi which I will be using as a fun "attack" accent for this cosplay. I was able to find some really sweet fire print fabric that flows beautifully. I have one poi already made and it was a huge pain with my old machine so before I go any further I need to learn how to use the serger my Mum got me for Christmas because it has a removable piece that allows me to sew really ultra narrow pieces of fabric.
I'm looking forward to sharing more updates for this as I go and hopefully I can pull it all together for November!
