Somehow, I managed to throw together a rushed cosplay in 48 hours for this year’s Supanova in Melbourne! #melbnova was a super fun affair, and I really enjoyed it. I’ve decided to start blogging about the things I do in my every day life, rather than focus on fashion. Especially because I don’t really spend that much money on buying trendy new clothes anymore, and I still want to share content with you guys!!
I decided to cosplay as San from the Studio Ghibli film Princess Mononoke; it’s always been one of my favourites and I absolutely enjoy San’s strong character. The mask was a little dodgy but I think eventually I will do it again, properly.
Here are some snaps from the day, hope you enjoy 🙂
I made the dress out of cheap purple polyester and a $5 Big W men’s white t-shirt, the shoes are hessian wrapped around sandals and the mask is dodgy 3 layer papier mache and paint. My spear is made of a $3 dowel from an arts and craft shop, a bottle neck and lid, and foam/red tape. All in all, not my best effort but still heaps of fun to make and wear!
Next up is comic-con in June and I can’t wait.
