This was the first time I’ve done such an extravagant cosplay for a convention, and I have to say, it was a blast! There were so many great people at C2E2, between the artists, the other cosplayers, even the panelists.
I’m already looking forward to next year!
We had quite the adventure, and it was great seeing other people get so much enjoyment out of our costumes (though my husband scared a few little kids…). If you want to see how I made the costumes, check out the DIY posts for Beast’s legs, feet and hands, head, and coat by clicking the links. And click here to check out my DIY for Belle’s dress.
During out wandering, we found some creepy and kooky characters to hang out with…
And had to chill with some fellow Disney princesses 🙂
We even got photobombed by Gaston at one point…
The panels were great too. My favorite was a writing panel that included authors Veronica Roth (Divergent and Carve the Mark), Amy Lukavics (The Ravenous), Nnedi Okorafor (BINTI), Daniel Kraus (The Shape of Water), and Rebecca Ross (The Queen’s Rising).
It was inspiring to hear published authors discuss their individual writing journeys–their struggles, successes, and everything in between. So much awesome for one room!
And of course, can’t forget all the awesome cosplayers that were out and about today! Here’s some of my favorites 🙂
