So... There is very few cosplays with VF's characters, and this year, an anime event called CATSU were announced to happen here in my city.
So I asked my parents if I could cosplay.
They said yes.
And then I had to think an economic character, since we don't have R$268797 (please do notice I'm brazilian), I searched for a character who I wouldn't need a wig with clothes not so complex. So I choosed Eileen. (I'm ginger, so all I needed was cutting my hair a bit more and smooth it).
Me and my mother went Miramontes, a tissue shop, because there were some stylists who stay there giving tips about who you should talk, dressmakers and it all, and there was one stylist who said he could help us. He did the cosplay --- and he did in TWO WEEKS. WHICH IS ACTUALLY PRETTY AWESOME.
You can see my photos as Eileen in CATSU 2012 here ! (I went CATSU with my friend Emanuella who cosplayed as Rukia from Bleach, and her clothes are rented, instead of mine).
Her clothes are not heavy, at least with the tissues the stylist told us to bought. The only annoying thing was the glooves, because they were kinda small for the fingers, so it prickled a little. But it was all okay.
I loved cosplaying Eileen, and I would go tomorrow again, but we can't spend any money anymore, because all we spended on the event (cosplay, food, my Tekken's action figure, my sister's shirt and etc) resulted on something like R$320. According to an online money convertor, it would be something around $159.
Ah, and by the way--- I'm eleven years old, cosplaying an sixteen year old. Although people there thought I was at least fourteen.
So, all I wanted to do was sharing this with you. Thanks for reading :3
