IM OFFICIALLY STARTING ON MY COSPLAY FOR DRAGON*CON!
I GOT THE CORSET FOR MY STEAMPUNK MERMAID COSTUME! Now I just has to manufacture the rest of the things. I have an idea for the skirt but no idea how I'll pull this off since I don't have a sewing machine and buying a skirt won't be cheap. I'm thinking for the shoes, instead of buying to go with it, or wearing heels like I'd like to (too much walking for heels), I've got this pair of black low-heeled pumps I might paint with gold glitter paint. My idea for the skirt is a fishtail cut (so it's mermaidy) with gold tule coming out of the bottom (to look like the fin)! Also, a gears in a pattern over where the 'shells' would go on the mermaid costume and gold piping going down the bones of the corset.

So yeah, not STRICTLY 'mermaid!' but not the usual victorian steampunk either. I like this idea. Also, it'll be so expensive it'll be the ONLY cosplay I'm doing (I got lucky with the corset, they had a plus-size corset clearance and it was only $30!) because I AM NOT MADE OF MONEY!

I LOVE IT! My friend and I kept changing our minds over character cosplays but then when we found out that there's Night At The Aquarium this year (We were gonna go to the Georgia Aquarium anyhow, but now it's included in the Dragon*Con activities in that it's at night after hours and cosplay is welcome) we decided on MERMAIDS but then I thought "HOLY CRAP STEAMPUNK MERMAID WOULD BE SO COOL!" so... I am!

Arg, now I wish teleportation was real (and affordable) so I could join you. That sounds like a blast!
