I realised I never really shared any photos of my Daenerys from Desucon 9 last summer. The reason is as simple as there are almost no photos, but I have this beautiful shot by photographer by Nils Katla :)
- Do you think I should have a proper photoshoot? :) Well, I'm going to anway, just don't know when yet ^_^
On saturday, like last year, I got the chance to go to the premiere of the new season of Game of Thrones :) This year it was a much bigger event, and it included a cosplay competition. When I got there, I got to know that I knew all the contestants :D In the end it was Lise as Asha Greyjoy who won, and she really deserved it! <3
It was all great fun, but I enjoyed it more last year when it was more intimate, and finished at a reasonable time (I had to wait for a long time for the bus in the middle of the night, in the rain, this time :# )
At Desucon Fantasy I met photographer Nils Katla and had a little photoshoot. It's such an honor to be photographed by talented artists, and it gives you motivation to make more cosplays and improve the ones you already have :)
Before I had finished, or even started properly, on Éowyn's travelling coat, I decided to make another cosplay :) Like I mentioned before, I love all of the female characters in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and I want to make at least one costume of each character.
As I am a pretty new cosplayer I also wanted to start with one of the more simple costumes. I decided to make Arwen's purple dream gown, which looks really pretty and comfortable. I also realised that I like and look good in soft purple colours, so that was another good reason to make it ;)
And here you have my dress, draped on my mannequins :)
Above: Work in progress. Below: Finished dress. Different shades in different light :)
And here's a sneak peak of me as Arwen, that I've worn to both Desucon Fantasy and HobbitCon Drei. :D
As this is not my favourite of Arwen's dresses, I still have another to make ^_^
- What do you think? :) Which of Arwen's dresses is your favourite?
