mab: mab cosplays (sexy wexy)

Hey there LJ! It's been too long again. I'm still alive and stuff. Bouncing around from shiny thing to shiny thing with very little direction - the usual.

Thought I'd share some pics of my most recent cosplay adventure. My brother contacted me a few weeks ago and said that he'd love to do a convention with me where we'd crossplay characters. Since I already had a Sally Ragdoll cosplay and we're about the same size, I thought it couldn't be too hard to pull a Jack Skellington together real quick. Rose City Comic Con was the next convention on my list and so I whipped something up in 2 weeks.

The jacket was the hardest part. I found a wonderful tailcoat at Hollywood Vintage here in Portland. It was old and worn, ripped up a bit on the inside, but workable and... they wanted 150 bucks for it because "vintage". I passed on that. Found a horrible band jacket on the clearance rack, straight out of a 1970s nightmare with gold tassels and glittery shit all over it and bought it for 20 bucks. Then, five hours with a seam ripper later, had the perfect base for a Jack Skellington tailcoat. I took off the buttons, painted one white and sewed it back on. I embellished the tails with felt and wire and then blanket stitched more felt together to make the bat bowtie. Got a black bodysuit and some white textile paint and painted a big triangle and some stripes on it. ... Anyway... It worked. I love how our cosplays turned out.

I'd been looking for an excuse to shave my head again for a while. This was it. See some pictures in the spoiler tags (which seem to work different than they used to??) They open up one after the other and require much clicking?? I've been away too long. Sorry!

Six days after the last time I shaved my head, my hair is already growing back in with full force! I can't stop petting my own head.

You two look so great!
And isn't the suedehead part of your hair growing back in the best? I zone right out rubbing my head sometimes.

Suadehead is the best. The sandpaper head is worst. I wish smooth head lasted longer than a day. :P

Holy shit! Both of you look amazing! Great work!

But YOU! Holee shit. You are such chameleon. you seriously look different every time I see you. If I ever meet you and just pass right by, you'll know why!

You look great, btw.

Thank you! I do consider myself a bit of a chameleon 'poet'... Who knows who the fuck I am ... totally depends on my mood.

You both look awesome!! Wow. I can't believe you did all that for the costume and makeup! Are you a professional?

I love the peach fuzz of hair growing in! Enjoy!

Thank you! Oh boy... I'm nowhere near professional. I'm a professional watcher of youtube 'how to' vids :P
