Goose and I got a ton of things from this year's Otakon.
|Alpaca & Fat Sheep are buddies|
|One of my favorite pieces of swag from Kaye|
|Who doesn't love MLP alcohol bags?|
I will be making four costumes for Goose and I with the possibility for a fifth for Goose and a sixth for Goose's sister (my sister-in-law!), if everything goes to plan.
For Pokémon, Goose will be Mudkip (#258) and I will be Moltres (#146). Goose's Mudkip will be a beach bum costume, which will be very comfortable and mine will be a Moltres hanbok (한복: Korean traditional dress) which will be pretty easy but not really made for complete comfort.
Epic Cosplay where the quality, color selection and styles are amazing and the customer service is top notch.

|Moltres: Autumn Gold Ponytail Cosplay Wig|
|Big Macintosh: 15" Autumn Gold Short Cosplay Wig|
|Twilight Sparkle: 36" Midnight Blue Straight Cosplay Wig|
So far I've started on the Moltres wig. I took a red sharpie to one of the wefts I bought in the color to test the gradient I was using to get the ombre effect that will be taken through the wig and the fabric of the design.
|Parted to tackle one layer at a time.|
I've also put together a design sketch for the embroidery that will go on the bottom of Moltres' jeogori (저고리) or coat.

Trying to keep up productivity so that we can make our costumes as detailed as we imagined and properly sewn.
If Goose's sister can come with us, I will be helping her put together her costume for Applejack and if Goose wants to, we'll work on his Prototype costume.
Otherwise, this is my to-do list for now.
