Since this is my first post for 2012 I made sure it was going to be an intense one.
This past weekend, dear friend and Cosplay darling Meagan Marie and I headed a few hours away to work on a collaboration cosplay together. As an avid fan of girls with huge swords, dark manga and anime, I have always dreamt of cosplaying Â Claymore, in particular, Â Teresa of the Faint Smile. My stab at it earlier in 2011 of a progress picture below:
I posted this picture showing my progress and felt as though as a fan of Claymore, I would die to be next to another cosplayer that had the same love for the series as I did. Overall we cosplay to connect, and we cosplay because we are genuine fans. I am glad I posted because Meagan was just as excited as I was. So this is where our journey starts to finally becoming Claymores.
Katsucon is about a month away and we wanted to collaborate together on our dream cosplay since we both are guests. This past weekend we headed a few hours away to do so. We decided to accurately depict such immensely intense costumes and mimic the accuracy. We needed to learn from some of the best. By doing so we both put in our first 16+ hours of work in nonstop in 1.5 days, with our team of Kris, Adam, and Mike as our accomplices who want to be disclosed for now.
