And it escalated quickly! I already have a red jacket, and from there it just took off. I ordered a wig, and then ordered red contacts from Pinky Paradise which is a first for me. I’ve never worn contacts for a cosplay before but figured it would add a nice extra touch to the costume. I picked up a simple black dress from Forever 21 (seriously, if you need cheap pieces for cosplay, check them out), ordered some socks, and found jewelery and arm warmers on Etsy! I wanted to attempt the jewelry myself but since I’m putting this together for HeroesCon, I wasn’t sure I had enough time. I already own boots and while they aren’t perfect, they work for now. Even the jacket I have needs some changes but for now none of it will be permanent. I’ll just roll the sleeves up and call it a day!
I played around with the contacts this morning since it’s been years since I’ve worn them. It took some time but I finally got them in and they were pretty comfortable! I left them in for a bit to make sure they wouldn’t bother my eyes. That’s something I 100% recommend if you plan on using contacts. And if you do notice any issues, remove them immediately. Your eyes are not something to mess around with! Here’s a little teaser photo! It’s a cell phone pic, hence the poor quality but you get the idea!
I can’t wait to pull everything together and wear her to Heroes! Are any of you going to Heroes Con?
