Seerofsarcasm’s 2013 Year in Cosplay Review!!!
Man it’s been a blur of a year. I remember last year I made a resolution to 1) make all of my costumes and b) make 25 new costumes, and I almost got there! While all the costumes are hand made, not store bought, I only made 18 for myself, BUT I made 5 as commissions/for other people, so I ended up at 23 which isn’t something to wag a finger at, even if it’s not my 25 goal!
This was by far my most hectic and impressive year as a cosplayer and costumer, I went from less than 10 costumes in 2012 with some of them being bought to all of this, and I like to think ive improved a lot!
I even won some awards! I got third place in the ALT*con costume contest with Homura, Best Craftsmanship in the Florida Anime Experience costume contest with Fukawa, and Best Advanced/Masters in the Florida Anime Experience costume contest with Celestia! Not to mention being a cosplay guest at this year’s FAN:dom con, which was a big deal and a huge honor!
I really wanted to go hard this year because i’m graduating college in the spring, and probably won’t have much time or money for cosplay when I move up to New York City in the fall. I made a lot of great friends this year who I really look forward to cosplaying with in the spring though, Katsucon awaits!!!
