Blog June, Day One!

So, for some unknown reason, I have signed up to participate in Blog June. God only knows why. Just take a look back through my blogging history, and you will know I am hardly a regular poster. But I have put my name up for it, so I might as well stick with it.

A while back I posted about the difficulty in trying to devise a costumes for PAX Australia that is wheelchair friendly. In the end, Sam and I decided on generic steampunk for the both of us (that way we can reuse components from both our costumes for future expos and conventions). I have just ordered this amazing jacket from the Steampunk Emporium, and intend to match it with some white leggings and some black combat boots.

Nerdy cosplay for PAX

I recently finished playing the Mass Effect trilogy, and I am so completely enamoured by the glorious Commander Shepard (the female one of course), that I decided that I wanted to make some FemShep armour for when I go to PAX in July (Sam and I are going there for our honeymoon….we are total nerds).

So today I spent a good few hours researching online how to make the armour, and see how other people made theirs.  While it was going to take a lot of time and effort, it is something I really wanted to do. For those who have never played Mass Effect 3, this is the armour I want to make, only in green.
