Merle: Escaflowne by Hopie-chan Merle: Escaflowne by Hopie-chan
New cosplay time again! (I have so many I barely get time to update more than a couple photos of each!)

Here is my Merle from Escaflowne that I debuted at San Japan this past weekend with my friends! Okay...so story time. I did her wig, ears, and tail about a month ago, and just kept putting the dress off until I finished my OTHER COMPLICATED new cosplay (which I'll upload soon!<3) BUT YEAH! So I tried to make it the night before the con and...messed up TWICE. So I ran out of fabric and I live nowhere near a fabric store. Long story short, on our way up to the convention, I bought a 3XL yellow shirt and MADE IT AT THE CON WITH ONLY SCISSORS AND A HOT GLUE GUN. Omg... my seams are just hot glued you guys. Worst costume ever as far as craftsmanship...but dangit if I'm not pretty happy with the end result! :P

So with that said, here is the first photo! Taken by the twinnie, :iconxhee-heex:!

This is what I mean about you guys being amazing cosplayers! You can grab a t-shirt and a hot glue gun and make it into a piece for a cosplay in a day! That's ridiculous ingenuity! You guys are awesome, and you look amazing. So cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute

Adorable! 

And hot glue is a lifesaver sometimes. I've done my share of glueing a costume together in the hotel room, lol. ><
