Here are some photos of me at Marcon 46, since I’m not quite vain enough to pepper an article I wrote with photographs of myself.
As you can see my steampunk Buddhist nun cosplay really came together beautifully, thanks to my very talented seamstress/roommate/friend and an incredible corset-maker who was able to deliver on a cruelty-free steampunk corset. I was a little worried someone might be all butthurt and offended over it, since I’m a white person cosplaying as a Tibetan, but I actually got a really positive response that encouraged me to keep wearing it and perfecting it. It was also incredibly comfortable, and the corset pockets meant I didn’t need a purse (which my boyfriend usually ends up carrying, much to his chagrin), so all-in-all it was pretty much my favorite cosplay ever. Definitely going to wear it again, a lot.
I plan on writing more about Tim Waggoner’s short story writing workshop next week (or tomorrow, if I can get to it) so look for that. Thanks for reading!
