2015 in Cosplay

  • The Dolorosa - Homestuck (not pictured)
  • Seiichirou Aoki - X/1999
  • Seishirou Sakurazuka (Wonderland artbook outfit) - Tokyo Babylon (not pictured)

  • Gintoki Sakata (Paako) - Gintama
  • Godtier!Porrim (Maid of Space) - Homestuck
  • Stevonnie - Steven Universe (not pictured)
  • Shatterstar - Marvel Comics
  • godtier!Dolorosa (Matron of Space) - Homestuck
  • Vienna Game!Sollux - Homestuck
  • Garfit Imoogi (OC) - Homestuck
  • gijinka!Snorlax - Pokemon

And then I did a bunch of sewing on these for @pinnedtogether:

  • Kotaro Katsura (Zurako) - Gintama
  • gijinka!Duskull - Pokemon

…Basically a lot of cosplay went down (fifteen if you count the two I worked on for Andy, and don’t count Shatterstar, which was mostly-done in 2014). Lots of Homestuck - I now have a full set of Maryam godtiers, ha. One change from last year is a lot more fancy/tailored stuff - there’s only one really thrown-together AU. I’m always looking to up my game, but I’m really pleased with a bunch of the pieces I made this year, even if I need better pictures of a bunch of them (which is why a bunch aren’t pictured).

Seven cons, which means I did actually successfully cut down from last year:

  • Katsucon 2015
  • Anime Boson 2015 (staff)
  • Anime Central 2015
  • Connecticon 2015 (Saturday only)
  • Dragon*Con 2015
  • Another Anime Con 2015
  • Teslacon 6

I still tried to bring way too many costumes to D*C, though at least I wasn’t tearing my hair out trying to last-minute finish things. The goal next year is to re-wear more and have my new stuff be A+.

2014 in Cosplay


Fourteen new costumes! Which includes my silly closet cosplays (and doesn’t include the almost-but-not-quite-finished ones). In order by photo (not creation date)


  • Juubei Kakei (Queen’s Cup) - Getbackers

  • Felix Harrowgate - Doctrine of Labyrinths

  • Aradia Megido (Jedistuck) - Homestuck

  • Kanaya Maryam (Godtier) - Homestuck

  • Magneto (genderbend) - Marvel 616

  • Jean Grey (classic Phoenix) - Marvel 616

  • Illyana Rasputina - Marvel 616

  • Rose Lalonde (Squiddle Dress) - Homestuck

  • Rose Lalonde (Samuraistuck) - Homestuck

  • Rose Lalonde (Timestuck) - Homestuck

  • Cho Hakkai (youkai) - Saiyuki

  • Kvote - Kingkiller Chronicles

  • Kanaya Maryam (PJstuck) - Homestuck

  • Aradia Megido (Christmastuck) - Homestuck

There are two somewhat obvious trends. One is HOMESTUCK EVERYWHERE. The other is that after years of feeling uncomfortable doing overtly feminine cosplays (seriously, it’s been like three costumes before this year), I finally feel like I can cosplay the ladies I love and feel beautiful doing so. Which Homestuck and Marvel have both helped by having lots of amazing female characters, and some really welcoming fans.


Nine conventions:


  • Anime Boston 2014

  • Vericon 14

  • CostumeCon 32

  • Anime Central 2014

  • Heroescon 2014

  • Connecticon 2014

  • DragonCon 2014

  • Another Anime Con 2014

  • Teslacon 2014

Lessons learned: 1) do not try to go to two cons on the same weekend. You will be stressed and unhappy. 2) You think you have time to debut seven new costumes for Dragon*Con. You do not. 3) Hitting a con a month for almost nine months straight is exhausting and I  am going to not do that this year.
