After many redesigns of the hood, how it would be attached, a few mental breakdowns, and many broken needles later…. Astrid is finally done. (Talk about your last minute costumes)
There are so many corners I cut with this costume, so I am not completely satisfied with the way it came out workmanship wise (during one of the aforementioned mental breakdowns there was use of a stapler……….bad decisions may have been made). Hot Glue, Sew-on and Self-Adhesive velcro, and optical illusions were my best friends throughout this entire project. It’ll definitely be remade when I have more time and better materials.
As for now, and for Fan Expo…. I’m going to have lots of fun wearing Astrid and being way too warm for August. Here’s to finding a winter con near me soon.
ALSO THIS IS THE FIRST COSTUME WHERE I WILL FINALLY GET TO COSPLAY WITH THE WONDERFUL AND WONDERFULLY TALENTED À Lanna Mode!!!!! We accidentally have cosplayed opposite series numerous times (Her Cheshire from Young Justice whilst I was Ty Lee from A:tla, and then my Artemis from YJ and her Katara from A:tla) BUT FINALLY WE WILL GET TO COSPLAY TOGETHER AND I AM SO EXCITED. Her Valka is freaking AMAZING and I’m so excited to see it in person. Excuse my excitement, it’s quarter after two in the morning and I should be sleeping ^.^
It’s finally happening.
