Heroes like Hercules! by Liv-is-alive Heroes like Hercules! by Liv-is-alive
Want to reblog? This is on tumblr: liv-is-alive.tumblr.com/post/9…

Edit!: Thanks a lot for 200+ favourites! :heart:

At Japan Expo I also debuted my Goddess Hera cosplay. I want to add even more hair into the wig, so it is still "unfinished". It was so much fun to wear her though! I thought the character was a bit too obscure to be widely recognized, but the reaction to her was overwhelming. I guess it's the big 'do ;)
The oh-so-sweet Belgians dragged me to Renaud because they instantly knew that the cels would match my costume - well, I can't really argue with them on that. I loooove this photo!

Character: Goddess Hera
Series: Disney's Hercules
Photographer: R. M. Photography www.facebook.com/Renaud.M.Phot…

Costume made and worn by me.

I creep on your cosplay all the time, but I seriously just wanted to say thank you form the bottom of my heart for bringing so many Hercules characters to life. From the muses to this, you're absolutely stunning and you do a perfect job. I can't wait to see Hera when you've added more to her. Keep on keepin' on girl.

I LOVE the design of Hera (Who says Disney did not at least do one bit of justice to greek mythology ?) Her glowing neon skin , her unique hair design , the shape of her head plus that lovely sharp hourglass figure ! I'm glad Disney did not adapted the original Greek myth because otherwise Zeus would have been a asshole to cheat on such a hot Goddess . She was the first reason I wanted to see Hercules as a kid , I even annoy my parents to take me to McDonalds so I could get her Toy under the mistaken suspicion that a certain neon red figure was her , only to turn out it was a Titan monster (Worst Happy Meal Ever =(  )
            I seen Cosplays of Megara but not Hera or Aphrodite which makes me wonder why as they seem like the type of designs that Cosplayers would do as a challenge to portray . Must be the heavy wig that causes neck pains to many Disney actors . You are the first real  Hera I have seen and I congratulate you for that .

I really love it too! Just HAD to make her :D I think the biggest "mistakes" in Hercules is brought on to have more efficient story-telling, so I don't mind them!
The wig does weight more than average - after 6 hours I simply had to get it off my head - the angle of the shape is tiring for the neck to bear ;)

You look beautiful here!! Your costume, wig, and makeup are gorgeous!! And I love the little baby Hercules you have, so cute! I've never seen some cosplay Hera, always Meg or Hercules. This makes me want to cosplay one of the other goddess from the movie <3

Good Cosplay! Heart 

Shame that people diss the movie because Disney couldn't make the movie closer the source material (Which BTW has many different versions so it would be impossible to do so because they probably wouldn't know where to start)

I think the film is wonderful and extremely funny. It might not be the most educational of films ;) but it sparked an interest in Greek mythology in me and then I actually enjoyed being able to pin-point the "faults" in Disney's version.
