I don't believe it, though I want to.
It looks really awesome and funny junk users aren't usually honest when it comes to things they made.

I have the same picture on my DeviantArt page. I could link you if you want. I'll leave a little comment in the artists description saying that I'm silvermoonelf.

I would believe you and possibly follow you their if this is something you do frequently.
It's because I've been curious about cosplay recently, and not creeping.

It's not, sadly. Cosplays are expensive X_X

Very time consuming, too. A rushed cosplay is easy to spot. If you can't devote a lot of time to putting it together, there's plenty of websites that sell them. You just need to be careful. A friend of mine ordered one for nearly 200 dollars, (I think it was some Vocaloid thing) and when she got it, it was some cheap, ill-fitting crap from China that looked nothing like the ads. If you do order one, make sure you do your research on the seller.

Ah yes, I believe you now.
You look hella good though.
I've heard, especially since you need to switch it up each time like it's halloween and making your own is a real bitch.
Yeah, the cheap ones look like halloween costumes, I've seen a good few. Well, I'm not interested in dressing up(well maybe someday), I just enjoy seeing people make live action versions of characters that look better than what movies and T.V. series manage to cook up. Though I'm guessing buying one online is the same as buying anything online. Though my reguards to your friend, I too know what it feels like to shell out a good amount of money for a cheap piece of crap.

Thank you :) I'm very happy with how it turned out. Though I've had a few in the past that look horrible! (L and Misa from Deathnote and Itachi Uchiha from Naruto are good examples... haha)

Some people do switch it up every time, though there are others who, once they get a cosplay they like, stick to one. It depends on personal preference and how long it takes to get bored with a character.

Ah, yeah. There's some very impressive ones at conventions. When I went to a con last year, there were some great ones! Mr. T, Ezio Auditore (Though they were a dime a dozen), and Adventure Time cosplayers kept getting pictures taken. The Mr. T guy was even on T.V. since he was in character.

Cosplay is an art, and not all art comes out like one would expect.

Really? I thought everyone switched it up before people caught on to their ruse?

Sounds really freaking awesome. I wish I had a reason to go to comic-con. It'd be so awesome to just look around and enjoy the cosplayers alone, and not forgetting what the hosts show the guests.

Well, some is much more expensive than other's is. My cousin for example, is stil in the process of creating a costume for (I think) a walking dead character. He's sunk about two years and two grand into the costume, so he's going to be using it often once it's finished. Though there are the cheaper costumes (Like the ones my friend uses) and they change very often. It's up to the individual and the circumstances.

It's a fun place to be. Dressing up isn't mandatory, either. I go there for the shopping, since there's a bunch of things to look at, even if you're just window shopping (Last year I got several unique T shirts, a MLP hat, a few figurines, and a war axe) but there's also attractions and people watching. I highly recommend it if you can afford it :). Just... Bring your own food. The food there is disgusting and WAY over priced. Some friends and I paid forty dollars for a plain pizza pie. Plus another 15 for fountain soda. the pizza was so greasy we had to eat it in bowls, and was just as awful coming out than it was in. For the love of Talos, bring a bagged lunch if you go.

I get it, you need to use it to get your money's worth. Though it sounds like you're better off with a more timeless character costume.

It's like any other trip to anything. Bring plenty of money and expect to pay too much for anything. Lol, you're just joking right. Because that is too humorous.
