Alice has left the building!

Well, the Eurogamer Expo is done now for another year and I must say I loved it! It was great to see all the fantastic cosplayers, many of which were lovely and friendly. I got to play some great games and had a few cheeky beers at the after party with some great and very scary zombies!

I think my first experience of cosplay has taught me a great deal, mainly the amount of time and effort that goes into the costumes. I learnt that although I enjoyed being Alice for the day I think I prefer the actual making of the costume to the wearing, maybe i’m a little too shy for the wearing haha! I’ll definitely do it again and any suggestions for my next will be gratefully received, i’ll consider anything as long as it doesn’t involve a long wig that gets in my eyes all day lol 🙂

Here is my Eurogamer Expo pic, I look a little uncomfortable.

Finished vorpal blade

I used a couple of red shades of nail polish to make the blood effect on the blade.

I then cut a triangle piece of foam and painted it gold for the handle.

I then glued this to the handle along with some string and used a gold pen to paint the string and draw on the rest of the design.

The finished Vorpal Blade looks like this – i’m chuffed 🙂
