So a while back, Lady Saika, another friend, and I thought of starting a tumblr specifically about cosplay problems. Needless to say, I got as far as creating the page and haven’t done anything since. But yesterday it occurred to me while attempting to shop for a costume that it is blog writing material.
My friends and I are doing ponies-as-people cosplay and I am Pinkie Pie. Right now I have shoes and a wig (which came in the mail literally twenty minutes ago). The thing with doing a costume that allows for a lot of freedom is that too much freedom can be a bad thing. And by bad thing I mean trying on every piece of pink clothing in the store. Some of them at the same time. I sent a picture to Lady Saika (who I believe was horrified) asking whether I was wearing enough pink (she said “omg yes” by the way).
So my problem wasn’t finding pink clothes (pink is apparently ‘in’ this year) but the right pink clothes for Pinkie Pie without putting her in an outfit which would make Rarity cry that was still Pinkie. Yesterday I didn’t find one. But I still have time before Otakon so I’m not going to start worrying just yet.
