Hi, everyone! Excel, reporting for duty! I'll be your guide through the wonderful world of cosplay. In this world, you'll find many helpful tips for doing a great cosplay. I'll try to post at least once a week with some advice on topics such as cosplaying on a dime, getting character personalities right, and finding rare cosplay items. I'll also feature my own cosplay from time to time, and maybe even some of yours! If you have any questions or ideas on what you would like to see featured, feel free to PM me.

As always, stay classy, Otakuites!

Girl-Type Ranma!

Hey, just thought I'd post this here, too, though I already guest-posted it in Japan86's Cosplayer's Realm. I'm also trying to make up for the fact that I skipped 3 WHOLE WEEKS of posting on here!! *le gasp*

I've finished my female Ranma cosplay!! I actually finished it tonight! Well, except for her wrist bands, but those are optional (one would assume). So, I took pictures!

The shirt was made by my boyfriend Daku's neighbor, who is an AMAZING seamstress! The pants were bought at Wal-Mart. I actually had to buy an XL from the Boys' section, as the Women's section didn't sell any sweat pants with the elastic around the ankles. I've had the shoes for quite a few years, so I don't remember where I bought them. The belt is just a simple strip of black fabric. All I had to do for her hair was braid my own, which I do on a daily basis anyways. I'm going to go ahead and make the wrist bands, but I need to buy a set of snaps, so I have to wait. I don't have contacts YET, but I'll be getting them before A2F V.

Remember, I'm always open to suggestions for guides/features, questions, and featuring YOUR cosplay! Just send me a PM and we'll talk!

Well, stay classy, Otakuites, and happy playing!
