Ohayocon 2019

Ohayocon 2019 – Shopping, Cosplay & Semi Messy Wigs

It’s been a week since attending Ohayocon 2019 for the weekend and honestly, I already miss it *so much* and I can’t wait for the next con coming up next week. I wanted to share all the pictures and fun from the last weekend, because it really was a blast.

I won’t be covering *too* much about my cosplay, because you can find all my cosplay info in this post! I had a ton with my first cosplay that I went all out on, and trust me, I can’t wait to share everything that is coming this year in the cosplay realm! This is the most transformative and fun hobby I have ever found and I am so grateful. A serious blessing in this mess of a life.

Ohayocon 2019 – Cosplay & More Cosplay

One of the *best* parts of getting to go to conventions is cosplay and getting to see other people’s cosplay because some people seriously go all out. I’m still a baby in the cosplay world, so getting to see what some people come up with after years of practice is really inspiring to me. I don’t know a ton so far, but it’s really cool to get to learn from everyone else.

Drag Him.. need I say anymore?
SCP-173 – This guy was dedicated to his craft!
A Rei! The best part of my Saturday!
Another Asuka! Another cute part of Saturday, with me covered in snow and in glasses because we had just arrived at the convention center in a crazy storm!

I walked in making the comment that I needed to make a point to take more pictures, but here I am, with next to no pictures AGAIN and it breaks my heart. I’ve been scouring the facebook pages and instagram tags for anything but it makes me so sad that I didn’t take more myself. Because, ugh.

So.. what’s next on the agenda?

I will be attending Zipcon next month in Akron, Ohio (small con, but still should be a ton of fun!) with my friends and a totally new cosplay. Post coming soon detailing what’s to come!

Keep up with my cosplay journey on Instagram! I can’t wait to share more with you all.

XOXO

Asuka – Evangelion Cosplay Update – Ohayocon 2019

Ohayocon is just days away and I’m really starting to get excited for all to come! This will be my second convention and first of the year, and I’ve been counting down the days for over a month now. I’m really excited to get to wear my cosplay of Asuka from Evangelion.

This post will be super brief, as my post from the con will be up shortly, sometime next week! I am just so proud of how it turned out and I am so happy to share it with you all!

Asuka Evangelion Cosplay – The Cosplay Itself

While I didn’t think that this would be a great idea at first, I ended up ordering my cosplay on AliExpress for next to nothing. With shipping, I received my cosplay for about $34. I did have to wait a bit for it to arrive (around a month!) but when it came it was worth it. The quality is great, and I paid next to nothing. I chose this cosplay.

I admittedly was pretty nervous waiting for it to arrive, but as long as you check your dimensions alongside the dimensions online, you should be okay. My cosplay fits perfectly. Woo!

Asuka Evangelion Cosplay – The Wig

If you know me, you’re aware of the fact that I have hair that is pretty much useless for cosplay, because just about no one has curly brown/red hair. So, I’ve got to make friends with wigs to make it through. I was pretty nervous about wigs at first, because I assumed that they are all by and large really expensive, but behold! Amazon has tons of wigs that are really affordable, and still easy to work with. Score!

I used this wig, and added these ponytails to the side to get that extra bit of volume in the ponytails. It’s got a bit of shine, but a little dry shampoo and some love will help it to get through. Plus, having friends that are bomb at styling wigs is definitely a bonus. I’m working on learning how to do it myself, but I’m pretty happy with how its looking so far.

Asuka Evangelion Cosplay – Interface Headset

If you’re working on an Asuka cosplay, you pretty much need the interface headset, or you’re better off just picking someone else. I had a friend print me some on a 3D printer (Thank you!) and spent a fair amount of time sanding them down, painting them, and then attaching them to clips so they can easily be removed and changed around if need be.

Check out my post talking my last convention here, and my last cosplay here!

Keep an eye out for my posts next week about Ohayocon! See you then!
