NDK 2013 Already? Oh Yes!

NDK, the local anime convention, doesn't happen until September. However, if you are an enthusiastic cosplayer, you have to get an early start!

As some of you may know, my friends and I are doing a Ghibli group cosplay and I am going to be Nausicaa! Here is what she looks like:

More detail.

And while I was thrift store shopping, I found this!

It is basically perfect for my costume!

Then I was at Target with Katja who found these:
Apparently no one wants yellow tights so they were on sale!

I now have a good portion of my costume finished! I just need to do the details for the shirt, find or make some leg warmers, find or make the belt, and get some brown shoes! I think I have red earrings that will work and I will keep my hair it's current length. I am debating brown contacts. We will see.

I believe Cat, the professional cosplayer of our group, is making me a plushie ohmu. In case you don't know what that is:
Baby ohmu.
They are surprisingly cute, I think.

So that is that! Now to work on my Jareth costume? That sounds like a good next step since I already have the patterns and material.
