Finally, the time has come to show you the biggest project I am currently working on. Since I really love Daenerys from Game of Thrones, I saw no other way than to cosplay her. I had a hard time deciding which outfit to choose, because she has so many beautiful ones, but I decided to make her iconic blue dress she wears in season 3. (But probably all of her other outfits are still on my wish list now… oh well :D). If you want to see how I progressed, you should definitely read on. Also, I am Khaleesi and I command you to! 😉
For my third visit of the Gamescom in 2011 I decided to try and make my first real attempt at cosplaying. One of my favourite characters at the time was Ramona Flowers from the Scott Pilgrim comic book series. Especially her outfit on the collector’s box poster was one I found to be different from all the other cosplays that already existed, so I decided to go with it. Since I didn’t need to craft anything myself, except for painting the Bokuto and cutting the wig, it was a fairly easy one. Nevertheless I really like how it turned out, and I had lots of fun that day. Also, I met Scott Pilgrim!

Edna & Harvey: The Breakout is one of my favourite Point & Click-Adventures of all time. So when I didn’t have much time on my hands to prepare a costume for the Gamescom 2012, I decided to dress up as Edna. I already had the blue Harvey plush-toy, so I simply bought an oversized Men’s shirt and a purple wig. That was barely any effort at all, but it was still enough to have lots of fun, and I still got recognized. 😉

One of the most frequently cosplayed characters from Final Fantasy VII is probably Aerith (or Aeris), the flower girl. Her hairstyle is really simple, but for most people impossible to achieve, because she has incredibely long and thick hair. So I suggest that everyone, who is looking this up for a cosplay and doesn’t have Aerith’s superhuman hair, should get a wig and/ or some clip-in extensions to thicken the hair. This braid really takes away alot of length, expecially if you want it to be thick and therefore braid it very tightly. If you braid loosely, like I did in the picture, it will become a little longer, but less voluminous and durable.
The style itself is called a rope braid. It is really easy to achieve and a nice everyday hairdo. Without further ado, this is how it’s done:
