BCMU and Cosplay UpdatesCategory: Cosplay Blog!

Just a quick update in the life of a cosplayer... I don't write diaries as much as I
used to, I have to say. Though, only five more entries till I reach another landmark
on Kupika - 600 diary entries. :D

Anyway, yesterday my group LwL and I attended BCMU, a local cosplay event for anime
fans in our area. It's organised by a new friend of ours, and also the darling
VideoGame, and it's been a while since we've donned any sort of costume, so we
were obliged to go along for the day. ♥

Seeing everyone there brought back a lot of good memories of when we started out
ourselves, for most of the attendess to BCMU were beginners in the cosplay field, and
LwL were probably the most experienced cosplayers there (minus one or two perhaps). I
enjoyed telling people the stories of our cosplaying so far and they were genuinely
intrigued and really, really great people. I've now made a lot of new friends, who
I'll hopefully see at the next BCMU, and even some at Expo in May, which shall be the
first event for the majority of them.

We wore Hellsing this time around, seeing as I can easily judge that as our most
successful cosplay to date - though I was still freezing my butt off. Why is that all
the characters I cosplay are ridiculously under dressed? And that's not gonna change
any time soon, what with Rei Miyamoto (HOTD) and Molly Grue (Last Unicorn) on the
horizon for this year. I hope 2012 will bring someone with more clothes for me to
cosplay... fingers crossed that LwL might be persuaded to give FMA a shot in the
future. >:D

As for progress at the moment, last weekend I bought the material for the HOTD
uniforms of Rei, Takagi and Busujima - luckily it wasn't too expensive, at only £48
for two patterns, 7m white, 1m of pale green and 3m of skirt green. I'll mock up the
basic items next month, I reckon, and then get cracking on the details... oh, I'll be
seeing my good friend bias tape, it appears. ;D

Why am I such an awesome person? Why is cosplay so cool?
