Oops, Its been too long again!

Hello hello!
Wow its been pretty busy the last few weeks, which is honestly why I haven't been posting.

Lets see, the last thing I blogged about was going Dog Tier. And I'm super stoked to say I get to wear that cosplay to a Phillystuck meet up this weekend! Hopefully after the meet up at some point over the weekend, or next week, I'll do another make up video.
This time I figured out how to make myself look exceedingly anime, and my eyes look huge!

Teaser photo, video will be made soon
Ok, since my last post I went to Paris, France for a week.
Moved back to college.
Turned 20.
And started the new school year.

Yeah, I've been pretty busy.

Actually, on the subject of my birthday (which was yesterday), I have fantastic news! My amazing boyfriend not only took me out to dinner and showered me with love/adorned me with a tiara because I was the birthday princess, but he actually made the most amazing gift ever.
Which also aids the progress of one of my cosplays.
Yep, he made me a portal gun.

Side view
There is a whole tutorial he made for it, in case anyone wants to make one! I read through it, and honestly if I think it looks easy, anyone can do it!

Also its so cool, it lights up.

And thats what I've been up to really. Besides school. Also wanting to master the art of French cooking.
Seriously. French food is the best damn food I've ever eaten. I just want to move to Paris and eat everything all the time.
Ah well, I guess finishing my cosplays comes first!

Today I Went Dog Tier!

Hoorah! Back to the land of the living that has internet!
In case anyone was wondering why I have been absent recently, it is because I just moved in to my new apartment in Philly. Due to complications there, I have been completely internet-less for the past week. Toughest week of my life.

Anyway, the point of this blog post isn't to whine about my lack of internet this past week. Rather, I'm here to talk to you about my new thrown together Dog Tier Jade cosplay!
I'm just really proud of it/the ears I made for it.

Basically the inspiration for this cosplay, or the base of it, is the black and white wig I own. Honestly, I just bought the wig on a whim one day and had no idea what to do with it.
Then, my boyfriend and I decided to do a Rigby/Eileen cosplay from Regular Show, which lead me to buying the ridiculous oversized glasses!

And then it occurred to me; why not use the wig with the glasses and be Dog Tier Jade?!
After all her God Tier outfit is mostly black with bits of white, and I haven't seen anyone else do it with a wig like mine! So why not?

Unknown artist, but you can buy the print from WhatPumpkin!
In case you can't see, she has white and black socks/tights, which the wig matches.

So, my Dog Tier outfit is not exactly like her outfit, rather its more "thrown together" and "inspired by." I already owned white and black knee highs and a black maxi dress (no link, sorry!).
I used this tutorial (plus my own modifications, namely a headband and duct tape) to make her dog ears. And I painted an old pair of flats I don't usually wear red.

Throw it together and add some green contacts and you're set!

I wish I had some full body pictures of it. Maybe I'll get some if I wear it to Phillystuck.
But thats that!
