Cosplay Portfolio

Hello. I'm ladyxzeus and this blog post is a compilation of all my cosplay works. :) I made this so it's easier to share with everyone my experience in cosplay and also to organize my ideas. I'm not going to post many pictures and instead I'll post links to other posts, so this one is not too heavy on your browser. It will be a bit long, but I'd love people to check out my cosplays and tell me what they think about them!

But first of all
Some Words About "My" Cosplay Ways

About My Vision of Cosplay
   For me, cosplay is a performative art. More than making a fabulous costume, it's about recreating a character through acting. Since I belonged to an amateur theatre group for many years, I have this "stage love" ingrained on me. When I perform, I try to convey a feeling, a short story or a morality through the character, based on its persona. Sometimes my performances are comedies. Sometimes they're tragedies. Many times they are simply abstract and have a lot of simbology. In the end, I'd like everyone to be touched by what I do and think about it, maybe even remember it later. Cosplay for me is art and that's what makes it so fun!

About Costume Making
   I'm not very talented about sewing or making props, but slowly I'm learning some things. Nowadays, I take a lot of pleasure from making a challenging costume and surpass my own talents! =D

About Self Esteem
   Just recently I started being more confident about my image. It makes me extremelly sad to be criticized on my looks, because there's really nothing I can do about them. To be honest, I tried being "fit" once, but it only made me suffer. So I started to avoid making new costumes that feature my belly, the part I'm most insecure about. 

About Adulthood
  Before being a cosplayer, an anime fan or a performer, I'm a worker. My job has to be my priority. Therefore time is lacking and that's why I reuse my costumes so much. Besides that, there's this thing about being a grown-up... In which you stop liking shounen OPs and stop screaming at every cosplay you like at cons. But you also learn to appreciate new things that you had never noticed before. Fun times. :)
