My friends and I went to ToyCon, and I had multiple embarrassing moments. How do I say the name of the character I’m cosplaying without seeming offensive or implying that I’m a fan of a hilariously vulgar anime series? Nina has it better… haha.
We dressed up as angel sisters Panty and Stocking Anarchy from the series Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt. Stocking is an insufferable goth, while Panty is an alpha bitch. (We don’t have Garterbelt ’cause we’d be needing a tall black dude.) I don’t know how to explain the series in milder terms ’cause it’s very vulgar. It’s the first anime to stretch the limits of my open-mindedness!
This time, I outsourced the props-making from a group of UPD fine arts majors, and had the dress made in UPD as well. That made it pretty convenient to monitor the costume’s progress. 😀 As always, acquiring auxiliary parts of the costume was pretty hard, but we pulled it off just in time.
I was also fortunate enough to be chosen as a photoshoot subject for my femme fatale look. Yay? It was very hard to maintain a good smile for a long time.
