Lolita and Cosplay Dreams

I would love to slam costumes and outfits like these into my closet! I am that type of girl, you know? I love looking at cosplayers and lolitas. I those are really FULL OF EPIC WIN! So, now, I am thinking that I want to start doing it. I was, and still am, a hoodie and jeans lass who loves cute and sometimes creepy accessories as well as my past Halloween costumes of which I use bits and pieces of when I want to. I love feeling like I am beautiful and that everyone is watching, maybe because in my High School, I don’t get that. I know I am not the prettiest person ever, but I love it when I feel like it. I also love it when I can be with my friends and feel like I belong, which sometimes I don’t. But these are things I can find in these worlds so to speak. I need to be a part of it for real this time. I have been going to conventions for a while now, and have only worn simple things, so my goal is to have SOMETHING to wear there this year. Think of it as a debut, yes?

Any Lolitas and/or Cosplayers who can offer advice would be AMAZING!! I may not start making stuff until the winter but I want to flesh out some details. I am not to savvy on the mangas because I more go to the conventions for the art, skits, and such that make them entertaining.

Possible Character Cosplay’s
`Kunogi Himawari and Pipe Fox from xxxHolic: I don’t know her character very well, but I would like to have at least one manga subject to work with aside from Beast. I don’t know much about the manga, because I am looking her up for costume purposes. I like her character so
I may use it.
`Anna from Van Helsing: I LOVE this movie and I like this character. I would totally attempt a cosplay of her, but I have one question; Would this be okay to wear at conventions? It is from a movie and not from a manga, but I have heard of people doing something similar if my memory is correct. I, again, very much enjoy her character and could fit the look well I think. This movie is one of my favorite flicks ever so I might do it anyway, even if no one will know who she is.
`Belle from Beauty and the Beast: This movie is love, nuff said. Disney works for conventions too, yes?
`Dark Elf/Drow: I’ve seen these around the internet for cosplays. I am familiar with this fantasy race through reading books and seeing other media where they are presented.
`Beast from Kuroshitsuji: I have had experience playing a circus character of my own through roleplay, and I have seen other characters from this anime at conventions. I could very well fit her looks too, though I am short and freckled. Though I would be wearing the outfit with a coat and scarf. I don’t want to be THAT exposed. I don’t know much else about the series, I have only read up on her for costume purposes. I like her concept a lot.

`I will be going for a Sweet/Gothic style before I do any others. I think I have a few favorites that I will be bouncing between because I can not stay in one style when it comes to fashion.

I will also be doing some werewolf and or zombie costumes if I can find an event to wear them too. I also need to find people who I can do these things with...but anyway. This was a completely random entry by yours truely, so for now, ado!
