Cosplay 2012 and My DIY Costume

It was the day of our company's COSPLAY party and I still did not have anything to wear. I had second thoughts of going but I had promised my friend that I am going to join him, ergo, I had to go. A day before the cosplay, my other friend Gabby who was supposed to lend mwe a Lara Croft ensemble told me he forgot the costume. Oh, man, what would I do? And so when I've gone home that day, I scoured through my wardrobe and found my  and suddenly got an idea. I decided I would be a goddess warrior just like Scatach or Artemis. 


My see-through gold INK dress is embellished with crystals, beads,  and pearls.  I purchased nude tube top and fit-hugging shorts and wore them underneath the dress. To create my goddess temple band, I used a gold link headband, removed the strap, and clipped the ends of the gold chain to my hair. I wore a pair of beaded gold shoes with brown lace straps that go all the way up to my knees. When I saw I saw a cut bamboo and two loose parts of a TV antenna, and a paper bag strap, creativity came to me -- I would make my spear and spwar holder. I was not successful in creating the spear due to the lack of tools but, I guess, in totality, the "spear" and the spear holder completed the look I want to create. 

As for my make-up, I used two fake eyelashes on both eyelashes and created a smokey-eye on my lids. I used bronzer on my face, gold maskara on my eyebrows, bronze lipstick, and mauve and brown blush-on for contouring to create the goddess look.

At the party, my eyes could not get rested. I was feasting on all the costumes I saw. There were a handful of Transformers, Avengers, Japanese anime characters, and movie characters that I saw. I expected the party to be fun but I got more than just fun, it was a blast!
