My very first cosplay, done entirely by myself from scratch. 1.5 months of work... exhausting but worth it. So far I have worn it to Pyrkon (polsih fantasy convention) and have gotten some really positive feedback there, so I am really happy about it. I also discovered that being a cosplayer is... hard. Your back hurts, everything drowns in sweat, everybody wants to take a photo of you and you are hungry and (in my case) can't see anything because you don't have your beloved glassess. But it's still wonderful.

I'm going to give some details about a few things because I can:
- The crossbow is made of expanding foam, cardboard and lots of paper tape. Fun to make, nightmare to carry. This thing is heavy!
- Gauntlets and the shoulder/back piece are cut from old sleeping foam pad I found in my closet. This stuff works relly well imitating very thick metal. I decorated it with gasket.
- I used my own glasses I used to wear few years ago and just colored them red with sharpies.
- The cape was the hardest part, as it had to be sewn from the very beginning. Oh, and painting this pattern was a nightmare. But it came out really well.
- I have bought some cheap 11 cm (4.3 inch) heels and painted them with acrylics and spary paint. And in retur they made my back hurt as hell. Ingrates.
- The small crossbow you can see on my left arm is made out of chopsticks, bottlecaps, cardboard and small pieces of EVA foam for details. It's probably ma favourite prop here. Recycling for the win!

So... yeah. What do you think?

You know what's annoying? I saw you! And I didn't know it was you because makeup and also, I can't recognize faces and I met you once for like 10 minutes and you were being tickled by Lemur at the time <_<

And the cosplay is awesome.

Weeelll, my face wasn't particularly well recognizable under all this stuff, so I don't blame you.
(Although it still is funny)

Very nice. Better on your first try than many are in their whole careers.
How did the red sharpies work on your glasses? Could you see very well through them?

Hah, thank you very much!

I was so naive to believe I would be able to see just fine and thus I did not buy myself any contact lenses. In reality I found it easier to not look through them at all (and I am reeeaaallly short sighted) because it was just red, blurry mess. Unbelieveably exhausting, walking around nt being able to see things.

Not a fan of LoL, but this is just wow. Specially considering it's your first cosplay ^^ Love the cape and small crossbow.

How much does the big crossbow weight?

Thank you! These were definitely the most time-consuming parts and I'm really proud of them.

It's hard to tell... I think something about 3-4 kg. But when you carry this for a few hours it feels like at least 10.

It's lighter than I expected, then.
