Photos: The Best Dressed Characters of the ‘Ted 2′ Casting Call

Last Saturday, I went to the “Ted 2” casting call. So, far no callbacks yet. My Super Sailor Moon was featured on this webzine.

There’s a story why my odango guards, hair clips, and the bottom broach’s wing is missing. On the day of the casting call, I had to take the T to the casting building. It was a bit of a walk from where the B-line stopped. I forgot my hair clips (minor details). One of my odango guards fell off and it seperated from the hairclip to keep it in. Because of the humidity, the wing on the broach fell off. I had hot glue with me in case if we had to be cattled indoors.

And if you want some dramatic “Heroes of Cosplay” time, my odango guard fell off while I was crossing the street before traffic would pass through again. I was running in my red boots and it fell off. I was standing on the other side of the street hoping traffic would not run over my one odango guard. Luckily, it did not. I waited until it was safe to cross to get my odango guard back. That was quite a story to tell…

So, that’s why a few things were missing in the photo. I did give the casting agents a photo of what Super Sailor Moon looks like with the accessories. So, hopefully we all should be getting callbacks soon…just wondering what they’ll be having us do for Ted 2.

Happy Birthday Azusa! 

Here’s 9 out of 10 of my Azusa Miura cosplays. I don’t have morpho on here yet. But still can’t believe I have about 10 Azusa cosplays…I don’t plan to stop anytime soon (Shiny TV!!!), but Love Live is also a huge distraction. 

I love Azusa! She’s what got me into the show. Maybe I’ll try someone else from 765…

If anyone is planning a huge iDolm@ster group in New England or the Mid-Atlantic, let me know! I’d love to be a part of a huge idol group!

Yuuki Anju - Love Live: School Idol Project (Shocking Party)

There’s a story behind this. Ever wanted to order something for cosplay but found out that it wouldn’t arrive on time? Yeah, it’s that story. I was supposed to debut Nico in Yume no Tobira at ctcon, but alas, Arda Wigs was at Anime Expo. (and I have like a gift certificate from animeboston that I’ve been meaning to use!) What I did was go through my fabric bins to find fabric that I can use for a last minute cosplay to be made in four days and spending not one single penny.

The result is Yuuki Anju. I picked this character because I liked “Shocking Party;” it’s a fun dance song from the A-RISE team. You don’t see much love for A-RISE, so I decided to go ahead and take whatever scraps I have to make a new cosplay.

I used a jacket pattern for the top. Essentially, I used black glitter casa satin lined with poly poplin. I modded the pattern to function as a double breasted jacket with a Mandarin collar. The lapel piece was the most challenging and time consuming. I made my own bias trim for the lapel. The buttons are craft foam hot glued onto smaller buttons. I wanted to have them large enough to go with a very cutesy idol-y look.

The epaulettes were made from yellow casa satin that were interfaced. The “cords” for the epaulette was made from leftover ribbon I had.

The skirt was made of two long rectangles all gathered with an elastic band. Simple project that took me less than an hour to achieve. Skirt is three inches above the knee for modesty reasons.

The sash is also a long rectangle tacked onto the skirt. Three flowers made of craft foam are pinned onto top of it. This was a huge craft foam project. The hairclip is also painted craft foam. The medal is also craft foam painted red on both sides with a gold button.

The hat roughly followed the same pattern as my USO girl hat. I used buckram to keep it stiff. It is held on by two bias tape loops on the inside where I can put a hair pin or hair clip on so it can stay on my wig.

I won’t be going accurate with the boots for ctcon for the sake of time. I do have lycra for boot covers, but that will be for another time. I just want to relax and have fun at ctcon as an idol.

Nico will be up eventually! I look forward to Love Live cosplay times and I’m happy to have friends on both coasts to cosplay it with me!
