Cosplay Year in Review + 2013 Plans. by cupcake-rufflebutt Cosplay Year in Review + 2013 Plans. by cupcake-rufflebutt
Happy Holidays! It's that time of the year where I throw together this meme of the costumes I've completed over the past 12 months, as well as my plans for the coming year. Sadly this was a bit of a dry year for me, cosplay-wise, having spent a lot of my spare time hunting for a new teaching position, moving to a new town, and settling into a new classroom and apartment. Even still, I was surprised that I only managed to cobble together 3 costumes this year:

Eternal Neptune from Sailor Moon, Terra Branford from Final Fantasy VI (artwork by ~sakizo), and Child Rydia from Final Fantasy IV.

While I lament the lack of new costumes, I'm pleased with the quality of work I achieved on all 3, particularly Sakizou Terra, which was my baby for many, many months. C: I'm super excited to see what I can accomplish in 2013, and hope to have several new costumes whipped together for Katsucon in February!

My wishlist for the coming year includes, but is certainly not limited to: Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time, Rapunzel from Disney's Tangled, Regency Rapunzel (artwork by ~MissSmish), Queen Elinor from Pixar's Brave, Donna Noble from Doctor Who, Weeping Angel from Doctor Who, TARDIS Fashion (artwork by *Atomic-Clover), Idris from Doctor Who, Major Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell, Barris Offee from Star Wars, Mercedes from Odin Sphere, Princess Serenity from Sailor Moon, Honey (artwork by ~sakizo), Virgo (artwork by ~sakizo), Aquamarine (artwork by ~sakizo), and Anya from Anastasia.

Thank you for all the encouragement this past year; I am very lucky to have such wonderful support here on DeviantART. Have a blessed and productive 2013, all! <3

Oh man, I really love some of the ones you have lined up this year, I can't wait to see more. I'd love to cosplay with you sometime either something Sakizou related (your one at Katsu was so good!) or Odin Sphere because I just made Velvet! :D

Ah, that would be awesome! Sadly I don't attend many conventions anymore (being a teacher and being stuck all the way down in TX) but if we ever do go to the same con, I'd love to take photos with you. :3

Aw, awesome! I'm making Donna for Katsucon next month, so I will definitely have her to wear to whatever TX cons I go to later this year. I'm also making a Femme Eleven (it's supposed to be a "secret," but I think I've hinted enough that all my friends know) for Katsucon. It'd be funny to get pictures with your Femme Ten!

I know, I feel like it's so weird that we haven't actually met yet! What cons are you going to this year? I'm indifferent to a lot of TX cons and tend to feel it's more productive to spend my money traveling to cons up north where I actually know cosplayers/photogs, but I feel like I really should make more of an effort to get to know folks down here. Isn't this the year that A-Kon's moving to that new hotel?

that would be awesome! I've got all the fabric for it, I just gotta make it :P

I agree! there's quite a few people I haven't met, but most of these cons are not that big. Yes! It's moving to the anitole, which is supposedly HUGE and has realllllly nice scenery. I'm also going to Matsuri, because of WCS (well that and I get in free). But I know what you mean. A lot of the photogs in Texas are very particular to those who they shoot (mostly their friends) and it's hard for me to get anyone to take pictures of me... but if I go out of town, it's so easy! That's why I'm planning to go to katsu next year, come hell or high water!

Oh man, yes, come to Katsucon! I seriously wish EVERY con was Katsucon. It is the perfect convention for anyone who just likes hanging out with friends, getting gorgeous pictures, and stuffing their face with amazing food, LOL.

Donna Noble!! :D She's my favorite companion hehe

Omg please do Mercedes!! Haha Let me know if you do, I'm making Gwendolyn for Spring/ Summer. ^^ It'd be awesome to finally get some photos together when we're both done :D

Yes, I will let you know about Mercedes! It sounds like I'll know a lot of folks doing Odin Sphere at summer cons, so I may have to consider her for Otakon or something. Just have to see about commissioning her crossbow, since that's not a prop I can or want to make on my own, LOL.
