2015. 3 weeks before my favorite convention of the year. Eve Fanfest, Reykjavik, Iceland. I’ve read that for the very first time a cosplay contest was announced. I wanted to test myself and see if I can manage to finish in in time, despite I can only work for a couple of hours each day. I quickly grabbed my artbook from Eve and see what I can make. I found this artwork:
I never managed to make a head -and shoulderpiece like that before, so I had to try a couple of times to make it look ok. Everything is made with 2mm craftfoam you can find in those dollar stores, and Worbla, which is more expensive, I bought at mycostumes.de. The time before we would depart to Iceland came closer and closer. I started to hurry up even more with everything that I completely forgot to paint my shadings in the pieces. However in the end, I am satisfied with the result:
Yes, hairstyle and make up is completely different though 🙂 But I like! The cosplay contest happened on all days of the event. Thursday, friday and saturday. I won first place at saturday!! Thank you CCP! It was an amazing experience.
