Update: Our act is on youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkWEmf…
Genki has now passed and I spent a great weekend with a bunch of lovely people. Saturday my Hercules Muses group entered the cosplay competition and went home with TWO flipping awards: Crowd Favourite (so great to be loved ;__ and Best Scenography. We had a blast wearing these girls and I've been waiting for this group to happen since 2 years ago - SO great to finally see the costumes in the flesh.
Not so many photos and/or our performance are online yet, but I just couldn't wait to post a shot of us ladies! So here you have us with a cartoon-ish sun rays made by a rookie (yours truly).
Characters: From the left, as Calliope, Celia as Clio, me as Terpsichore, as Melpomene and Tina as Thalia.
Series: Disney's Hercules
Photographer: Signe Stub
Costumes made and worn by ourselves.
Other Disney-related deviations:
We didn't put any structure into the wigs - for Caliiope's wig we teased and teased and sprayed it into shape + sew on the lighter coloured hair. For Terpsichore it was heating the hair and setting it with loads and loads of spray + using gravity to our advantage haha.
I can't explain the level of awesome you girls did, like.. seriously. It's amazingly awesome, and I fangirled like I don't know what
Thanks so much, babu
THANK YOU FOR DOING THIS
I love you all D:
We did think about making a padded suit for the Thalia costume, but decided against it - it would have just ended up looking silly and wonky. and Tina is the right height + has the widest hips out of us girls.
