|I love making props and cosplays|
I’ve posted photos of my god tiered John cosplay on my cobblestonelife tumblr:
I got recognized an awful lot and people even asked me for pictures which was amazing. I’m super proud of this outfit, and since at every past con I’ve attended I’ve cosplayed kind of obscure characters, meeting so many Homestuck fans at this convention was really exciting. Every time I saw a Homestuck cosplayer I would run over to say hi (I got to meet a few Dave Striders, Terezi, Nepeta, young John, god tier Roxy, god tier Jade, and even Jane!) I also meet a really cool Loki, Ms. Marvel, a few Cecil Baldwins, Princess Mononoke, Hawkeye, and more! (most of these are in the last photo link above) I also got to see the actor Curtis Armstrong (aka Metatron of Supernatural).
Everyone was super nice and found my ability to “do the windy thing” (aka, pull out a tiny fan from my pocket) hilarious. I carried Casey the salamander around the con too – a lot of people were excited to see her.
The full John outfit took me week to make. Sewing Casey took another week. The hood was the most time consuming costume piece – taking me around 4-5 days (though the dang shirt took me three hours of ruining one shirt and three iron transfer sheets ). The shoes had to be painted yellow and blue. Oh, and this was my first time really styling a wig, so I think it turned out pretty good.
I'll post pictures of Casey and the god tier hood here at some point around my new and insane work schedule.
Ok, I should stop ranting. Basically, Wiz Con was amazing and I’m so excited to attend Chicago Wiz Con in August . But more on that closer to the date.
Thanks for reading, and hello to my new watchers,

I draw and create digital art in my spare time - which I have very little of around college. I do a bit of photography but mostly draw. I also dabble in crafts and LOVE cosplaying.
