Bygones

Today, I met a man whose love of cosplay rivaled my own.

I mean I’m not a professional but I LOVE costumes and role play.

We shared some of our favorite costumes and he helped me out with an idea for a new costume.

I admitted to binge watching True Blood and knew it was time to make a True Blood costume.

A vampire of course.

Perhaps Jessica?

No.

Pam from True Blood:

She has some FUN lewks.

And, of course she has some great one liners:

Let this good people practice their constitutional right to be fucking idiots.

I am wearing a Wal-mart sweatsuit for ya’ll, if that’s not a demonstration of team spirit, I don’t know what is.

And my PERSONAL favorite:

Let bygones, be bygones; bi-girls, be bi-girls.

More nerd-ish costumes

Apparently, Velma is a REALLY POPULAR FETISH that some people have.

The response to my post has been swift and arousing.

Who knew that a nerdy little brunette in glasses could have SO MUCH APPEAL?

I thought I was the only one.

So, in no particular order, here are some other cosplay ideas that have been bouncing around in my brain.

Sarah from Labyrinth:

I’ve discovered quinceańera dresses are quite suitable for this.

Claudia from Interview with the Vampire:

Please allow me to introduce myself. . .

I love this costume:

Sexy Stormtrooper.

Only because I saw Blackheart Burlesque put on a show that made my jaw drop.

Gotta love any costume that begins with a bodysuit:

Snow White.

Personally I love a Steampunk Snow White:

But that’s just me.

I also have a thing for Mary Poppins, Merida, Madeline and a BIG THING for Marie Antoinette (we share the same birthday), but that’s a MUCH larger post for the future.

Anything you’d like to see?

I’ve been wanting to do a Scooby Doo costume for FOREVER.

Not a Daphne costume, but a VELMA costume.

Velma’s hot in a sort of brainy-meets-skater-chick kinda way.

I’ve loved her forever.

My Velma costume is atypical, however.

You see, I don’t just want to be Velma in an orange sweater and skirt.

Oh no!

I want to be LATEX VELMA.

That’s right!

I want to get all decked out in an orange latex shirt and shirt and channel my inner nerd.

I found Kitalyst on etsy and I’m posting this here because they have an AMAZING LATEX VELMA costume for $160 and in non-standard sizes.

Color me happy!

And since I now have a local friend I can impress with my costumes (hello ROLEPLAY) I’m hoping he harbors an inner Velma fetish and will enjoy the costume as much as I do.

Jinkies!

I could have danced all night

A volunteer organization I have worked with in the past is holding a Derby Fundraiser, complete with bourbon tasting.

Yum!

Now, I am not one to skip the opportunity to dress up and wear a fancy hat.

No siree!

Nor am I the type to skip a little bourbon tasting.

I love me some Maker’s Mark!

But since I’m a little nutty, I thought, “Wouldn’t it be nice to combine cosplay AND derby?”

Check out this $995 custom gown on etsy. . .

And two custom hats:

Now, I’m NOT saying I’m going.

Seriously, WHO would I take as a date?

But I am saying, IF I went, then I’d probably cosplay Eliza Doolittle.

Perfect rags to riches story.

Of course, wearing turtleneck longsleeve dresses is not my forte.

Why hide my assets under layers of lace and ribbon?

Still, it might be fun to adopt a British accent (I’m actually APPALLING at accents), and pretend to be a lady of leisure who sips bourbon and raises money for charities.

Two out of three ain’t bad!
