I love cosplaying and I love being original. I take concepts from characters and create something new. With my love for my favorite videogame, it was about time to cosplay a character from it. At the time, a champion called Aurelion Sol came out. Being a fan of space and dragons, I saw this as the perfect opportunity. I wore this to Fanime in San Jose, CA 2016. (Yes I’ll be there again this year!) See more photos and costume details below!
Also yes it’s been a while since I’ve posted, and I truly apologize for that. I’ve been busy with so many new endeavors, from recovering from being sick, gaming, and dealing with preparing for the next chapter with my life. Here are more details below for details on every part of the costume!
With art being my forté, I knew I could make the mask easily. I bought a white head gear frame, added foam, wiring, and painted the details to make it lifelike. I knew the hardest part of this cosplay would be the revolving stars, and even though I wish I was geared towards engineering, I settled for a fire hula hoop and attached my styrofoam comets, painted them, and added fabric to create the illusion of fire. (No real fire is allowed the convention lol.)
I got a super long purple wig to match the color scheme. I also bought the dress from a local dress shop, when I found it I knew it matched the dragon aesthetic I wanted. I added battery powered string lights underneath to give it that galactic ‘wow’ factor. Overall, this is my favorite cosplay thus far. I’ll be cosplaying Espeon this year at Fanimé so hopefully I’ll see you there! Keep a lookout for more updates!
Also I play League of Legends everyday and stream, check it out at twitch.tv/punflower! <3
