Hey guys, so I've decided to make a list of my cosplay plans and progress... this is mainly for my own use however it's kinda fun to share my progress with others.

Alice: Madness Returns
Alice's Cheshire Cat dress with silver Hobby Horse
I am in the progress of making the hobby horse... when I first started I very closely followed
<- that tutorial. However after running into some complications I have gone off a bit from the tutorial and am now using it more as a base guideline to help.
As far as the DRESS goes I am still unsure how I will be accomplishing this. For those who haven't seen a picture of me, I am a bigger girl, and it is very hard to cosplay a rather skinny character when your boobs are too large to get a bra from Victoria's Secret. I found a great dress
<- there. She did an AMAZING job at conveying Alice's dress. So I'm sure you're asking yourself: if she has such a great dress AND is offering to make one for customers then why not just have her make yours? Good question. I'm actually seriously considering it AS A FINAL OPTION. I want Alice to be my first 100% made solely by me outfit. My last three cosplays I've done were all bought... two of them were bought for the purpose of cosplay, and one of them was I had made the tail and ears (rather shittily I might add) and bought bright yellow articles of clothing. It wasn't that I was unhappy with my cosplay, it's that when someone says something like "I like your cosplay!" or "I don't like _" I want to be able to respond to their feedback with knowledge of the process that went into making it... But I am defiantly keeping her into consideration for buying a dress (BY THE WAY, PLEASE GO CHECK OUT HER ETSY ACCOUNT! SHE HAS AMAZING STUFF THERE!)... Dungeons and Dragons
This one I VERY loosely say I've started... I have purchased the cloak that I will be wearing for her outfit however I have achieved nothing else. This outfit I am very hesitant to start because I like cosplays that cover me 100% (I have poor self esteem issues) however if you've ever played D&D you know that basically all the women are really pretty and show off skin... I can't decide if I want to wear the cloak to cover myself, if I'll wait until my eating disorder hits me hard again and I lose some weight, or if I just say "fuck it" and wear whatever... I'm scared to just say "fuck it" though because all it takes is one negative comment for me to go from "I'm feeling okay" to "I don't want to leave my hotel room for the rest of the weekend, where's my blade???". A few months back when I was planning this one more intently I asked a REALLY great artist who I saw did D&D sketches if she could draw me up what she believes a Changeling Druid should look like... and in turn I got
<- that amazing piece of artwork. I have been very loosely using this as my model for what I want my outfit to look like... and though I haven't officially drawn out a cosplay design for my girl yet I bought the cloak as a means to cover myself if I get too socially phobic/self conscious to wear whatever it is I plan on wearing. I DO like the staff on this and may just keep it exactly the way she drew it up.. though I may put a dream catcher on the end instead of feathers.
