"I made/altered the whole outfit with the exception of the shoes. I tore and burned the bottom of the jacket to give it the effect that the character’s jacket has, I hand glued the details of the collar, and I placed all the pins on the jacket and pants one by one to replicate the stitches. The pants were originally leggings so I ripped the seams and sewed extra fabric and lace on the sides to give it a looser effect and make them more comfortable to wear, plus I added pockets so I could carry my own items during cons. I also styled the wig by crimping it and teasing it until I achieved the volume I needed."
"This will just be a signal fire. We’ll fill those heroes full of holes… and put them in their place. All for a brighter future.."
"I cosplay because it allows me to express myself and my interests at the same time. Becoming a real life version of the fictional characters is something very special that makes me happy. I also cosplay because it challenges my skills in crafting and makes me improve them."
"A week before Metrocon 2022, a group of friends and I decided to cosplay Demon Slayer Character with another friend. 3 days before the con, I sewed, hand-painted the cape and top of the outfit, and styled the wig from scratch for Rengoku from Demon Slayer. It was very stressful, but I had a lot of fun with the process."
"I hope to grow as a cosplayer by creating more content of the characters I enjoy and make me happy. I also plan to continue competing at every possible con to build up as much experience as I can. My goal is to earn awards at bigger conventions and possibly start competing out-of-state at some point!"
