My first cosplay ever
For the first time I've choose to cosplay not a person from movie or book, I decided to cosplay a period.
Steampunk. Great fashion: top hats, a lot of copper, cogwheels, goggles, leather, corsets, long skirts, petticoats and walking canes.
I've ordered all components of the costume from Aliexpress. The bustle I've sewed by myself.
We dressed up in our costumes and traveled with my daughter and some of her friends to a science fiction and fantasy festival "Olamot" in Tel Aviv. The event takes place every year on Passover holidays.
I was a HUGE mistake!
First of all, don’t enter into Tel Aviv with a car! There are not parking spaces! At all! It took me like 40 minutes to find a place to park.
Second: high heels and corset for whole day – really bad idea!
By noon I had already removed the corset. Unfortunately, I did not prepare plan B and did not wear appropriate underwear. My gala décolleté became a décolleté who fought gravity (Spoiler: We didn't win).
But my daughter was having fun, so it was worth it
