|Colby and I as Ramona and Scott from Scott Pilgrim!|
Ikkicon! Ikki is in Austin, Texas and usually falls through New Year’s weekend (although that didn’t happen this year). After the summer conventions, it’s several months until the next Texas convention, so I always look forward to Ikkicon! It’s also the perfect time for me as a student; I can celebrate the end of the semester by finishing up a costume and hanging out with my con friends.

This year, I decided to make a costume of Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim! I have wanted to cosplay this character since I first saw the movie version and later read the comics, but I haven’t ever felt confident enough to attempt it. I’m not the best at sewing, wig styling, or other cosplay skills, but this year, I was determined.
The wig was the other difficult part for me, but I’m pretty pleased with the results. I’ve never styled a wig before so it was a new adventure for me.
Overall, the costume was incredibly comfortable and creating it went smoothly!

I did a little mini photoshoot with Colby as my Scott, and I love the way the photos came out! I got a new camera for Christmas — the Canon Rebel T3i — and although I know little about photography, my photos are already coming out wonderfully. I would definitely recommend it for the beginner photographer interested in owning a DSLR camera. All the photos in this post were taken with the auto settings!

My other friends Joss and Nine went as Rainbow Dash and Rarity with a twist — they went as a football player and a cheerleader. Too cute.
|Anna and I!|
I also met up with the lovely Anna of Glitzy Geek Girl, also dressed as Rainbow Dash! I’m sad we didn’t get to talk more, but she is super rad. She decided we are BBFFs (Best Blogging Friends Forever) and I think that is the best!
