Just in case there was any shadow of a doubt that I’m a huge nerd, have some (shitty) pics of the Journey costume I made to wear to PAX Prime this year. First cosplay ever.
Can’t see it in the pictures, but it is soooo poorly sewn. This is also the first major sewing project I’ve done, and I learned a ton from it. Shit, if that hood wouldn’t keep a decent shape around the mask no matter how many times I re-tailored it.
Props to this tutorial for getting me started, although I ultimately deviated a lot. The biggest issue is that the scale of the hood pattern was off, possibly from my own printing/tiling error.
Overall: it was super hot, super hard to see out of that mask, but it was cool how many people were excited to see a Journey traveler walking around the con. :]
P.S. If Deadpool is out there somewhere, I want a copy of that picture.
