Hi, friends. It’s been a while.I’ve been here, drafting posts and not releasing them, trying to do challenge months on Instagram and giving up at day 20, baking the cutest sprinkle biscuits you ever saw and forgetting to take photos before I fed them to my students. I’ve fallen into a sort of apathy, which is partly because I’ve retired from 90% of my hobbies for a while, but it’s also because I am waiting for so many big life things to fall into place.
When I was cosplaying a lot, I like to try and alternate big, labour-intensive costumes with more simple, closet ones. Gold Coast Supanova in April always sneaks up on me, so it was usually the con for playing around with costumes built around a few simple outfit pieces and this Cinderella house dress costume was one of these.
When I posted about budget cosplay a few months ago, I mentioned I wasn’t really doing any new costumes. And yet here I am, debuting photos of a new costume (insert o_0 emoji here). Before anyone jumps on me for lying, I promise you, I’m still saving!
If you follow my Facebook page, you may have already seen that I’m taking a little step back from cosplay for a while so I can budget and save for big, real life things. This doesn’t mean I’ll stop cosplaying altogether; I think it’s a good opportunity to re-wear and make adjustments to some older costumes.
