Yet Another Cosplay Journey

Why do I do this to myself?  You think I would have learned after the last cosplay.

Alas, I decided to fill up my busy schedule even further with yet another cosplay attempt. Specifically, Journey.

Sorry for the blurry picture, still getting used to using a camera phone.  It hides my shoddy edging anyway.

What can I say?  So far my year's games list has read Cave Story+,  Theatrhythm, Kingdom Rush, and Journey. I played a couple of other games in between for research, (and Tetris is one of those ongoing obsessions) but every single time I try to go play a new game I wind up replaying/playing more of one of these instead.  It's like being a kid with two game cartridges all over again!  I must have finally fallen onto the wrong side of the time/money gaming graph.

Not sure how to feel about this cloak!  I think I totally botched the measurements for the pattern, it's way too big!  I had to stop at the second level of pattern because running out of space.  ;__;  (But it's my favourite pattern anyway, since it's the playthrough I have the fondest memories of).

The hood is a little bit fail (ugly seams!  I have no idea how it went so wrong, I just kind of arrived at it, I was sleep sewing or something and don't have enough fabric left to redo it.) so I'm not going to show a picture of that.  Instead, check out the mask!  The eyes glow, although in the dark they glow kinda minty blue instead.  I'm counting on the fact that I'll be wearing this cosplay mostly in daylight and will just turn the eyes off if I wander into a theatre or anything.  I shouldn't be wandering into dark rooms anyway because while I can see through the mask okay dark rooms will turn me blind.

Still have the scarf and body suit left to do.  I was super worried for a couple of days there but if I work on it a couple of hours after work each night next week it should be okay!  Still cutting it kinda fine but after Kain, not so bad.  Fingers crossed there are no disasters with the scarf!

I heartily approve of this even if I have no idea what cosplay it is, but hey, it's COOL.

When are you premiering it?

It's from this game (link is to trailer): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mF8KkDiIdk

Next Saturday! So one week and two days. Because I apparently have become one of those cosplays that leave everything until the last minute. -__-

Oh, I see. It looks cool - I like the style of the whole thing. That hood must be quite uncomfortable, though - and if you're not satisfied with your results... well. Hmmm.

But the mask rocks =P

Wow, that's soon! And yeah, the whole putting cosplays off - that's such a classic! I keep on telling myself to get started on our Comiket cosplays already, but... yeah. Maybe come mid-November... =P

oh hey beans might be planning to cosplay journey at some point too.

every single time I try to go play a new game I wind up replaying/playing more of one of these instead
totally get what you mean, i get more distracted with the nostalgia to replay an old favourite game instead of completing new ones lol i think i've played the entire ace attorney series at least 4 times lol

*___* Oh man, please tell me she'll do it at an Australian con?! Clearly I need to go flail at Beans.

See, that just made me want to go replay all the Ace Attorney games too! ;__; Not enough hours in the day for gaming! I want to replay my favourites but want to play new ones too...

Lol one thing I love about replaying favourite games is discovering things you may not have noticed the first time. Also since I've been too busy to concentrate on new games it's easier to go with something familiar yet sometimes old puzzles will throw me. Like I'll be trying hard to remember how I did something but my memory isn't always right so I do still have 'eureka' moments.

I wanted to do it for a Singapore con ;A; first I couldn't go, and then plans change and now I can go (urggg)... but didn't get materials in time, so it'll be my christmas project for next year orz


Am still trying to see if I can do Layton or Eureka 7 what is this;w;;;;;;

*___* Ah, that's a shame, we could have been Journey buddies! Still, looking forward to seeing it!

Laaaaaaaaytooooooooon! *__________* *FLAILS*

Oh! Is that the game where you would play with other people and when you got lost you would chirp at each other until you were found? XD

It's looking good so far! Can't wait to see the finished project! Good luck with it!

(and completely unrelated, I am currently hoarding the latest Beloved chapter until I have more than five mins at my comp to read it, which is def not anytime soon T_T)

That is precisely the game! :D

Thanks! It's not turning out exactly how I would like but it's also not a complete disaster, will see how the final stretch goes. I don't have a lot of experience working with fabric and it's kinda showing!

Ah, you're super busy huh? Well, hope things calm down for you soon! At least it means you won't have to wait as long for the next chapter?
