Haven't been able to upload any of my cosplay pics because DeviantArt ruined things by not allowing jpg and png image files in the COSPLAY category.
Cinderella 2015 wig and makeup test
We're two days away from con and I'm FINALLY putting on the wig and makeup for the first time.  XDDD  I'm actually really surprised with how easy it was to lay the lace front wig down properly.  I only had to use a tiny bit of spirit gum to keep the edges near my ears and the small widow's peak at the top of my forehead down.  

For any of you going to Anime Iowa in Coralville, IA... don't be afraid to say hi~!

It's so biiiig!
We had to move the Cinderella dress out of my cosplay room while I was wearing it because there just wasn't enough space to take a half decent picture of it.  So here you go~!

The dress will be here tonight~!

Long time, no see!

I have begun the process of getting my Joffrey Baratheon costume commissioned.  I'm hoping to go through Firefly Path, as their costumes are the highest quality I've seen for recreations like this.  I want it as accurate and complete as possible, which means I will be asking them to create the crown as well.  Their headpiece portfolio gives me confidence that, if they're willing to take on this project, they'll make even that perfectly.  

This is the one costume that I am NOT on a budget for.  I'm willing to spend as much as they quote me in order for this to become a reality... in true Baratheon/Lannister fashion, of course!

I know it's weird to have your favorite GoT character be the most hated bad guy of TV show history, but I just couldn't help myself.  He's intensely compelling as a character.  And I rarely get to cosplay arrogant assholes.  I've wanted to do this since I first saw Joffrey in the show and his Name Day outfit is what stood out to me, so that's what I plan to get commissioned.  And yes, I will be in character for as long as I can handle the glares~!  

Several people in my family and circle of friends have expressed concern over me wearing this costume as I am a tiny female and people really really fucking HATE Joffrey.  But!  I have faith in the cosplay and convention community as a whole.   SPOILER FOR GoT - Also, I feel that with the death of Joffrey in the show, most of that animosity has faded.

So!  Wish me luck, everyone.
