Though SDCC 2015 is eight months away, thinking about the Preregistration Badge Sale has SDCC on my mind. And that means I've been thinking about cosplay!
I was going to try to make a Sabriel cosplay, but after figuring out how much it would cost, I don't think I can afford it right now. The scale armor, the bells, it all just adds up fast. I also thought to finish my Loki cosplay - I've already made the pepakura helmet - but cost is the same reason I haven't finished that one yet. I think I'm going to stick to cheaper cosplays at the moment. And ask for JoAnn's gift cards for Christmas :-P
I have decided my next cosplay project will be Bespin Leia. If I watch the sales, I can buy the materials cheap - the biggest cost will be time, with all that embroidery.
In addition to Bespin Leia, I want to make a couple more cosplays. I'm playing with the idea of Darlene Dixon - a Rule 63 version of Daryl Dixon from the Walking Dead, Agent Peggy Carter from Captain America, and Bitch Pudding from Robot Chicken (WARNING: Language).
Overall, these cosplays would be very easy to execute, relative to Loki's leather suit or some kind of armor (oooh Lady Sif, how I want to cosplay you... One day, when I can afford Worbla.)
If we utterly fail to get SDCC 2015 badges...? Well, I'm still making the costumes. I'll just be bummed I can't wear my new Leia costume to the Star Wars VII panel in Hall H!
