Wow, I am floored! I used to do all sorts of complicated costumes back in the day (you're talking original Power Rangers what, 15 years ago?) before cosplay was even a word, and I am just mesmerized by your talent. I also am quite glad you shared your costume-creation secrets because I have a little one now who has a crazy costume-making mother and now I know how to do things I didn't know how to do back in the day (so it looked good, but not great like yours.) Honestly I don't even know who the character is you're portraying and I don't care. The costume stands on its own as a gorgeous piece of art. Bravo!
Hey, there's nothing wrong with Power Rangers, haha! I'm going on 29, I totally remember those days! I have a real "community" perception of cosplay so I like to share what I learn. I know some people have "trade secrets" but I'm not making a dime on it so I don't care. So much of costuming is trial-and-error so I'm pleased if I can inspire others and steer them away from major headaches. Seriously, if you'd love to know how I made something, just send a note or make a comment. I'll try to respond ASAP.
Thanks for all of the kind words, it's super kind of you! And I really do look at cosplay/costuming as a form of art so your comments meant even that much more.
Tilly showed me your work, and I have got to say, I am seriously floored. I hope you don't mind if I follow/watch you- I would love to see more of your work as you move along in this thing we call life xD
