That’s probably the reason while I enjoy Animethon so much; it’s that one convention that’s considerably smaller than both the Calgary and Edmonton Expo’s, and just so happens to occur right in-between.
While my overall coverage of the show pretty much stops right there (told you I didn’t cover a lot!), I was finally able to shoot some cosplays of my sister and friends, including Priscilla and Jessica’s Ms. Fortune and Caitlyn cosplays that we first saw at the Calgary Expo last year.
Unfortunately our schedule for the Calgary Expo last year was super jam packed, so I never got the chance to shoot these cosplays like I normally would during those trips. It also decided to snow last year so that didn’t help either.
Someone actually asked her how she made a Captain Fortune outfit so quickly when the skin was just released last week. This is actually the original outfit that Priscilla initially made last year, she just put her own twist on it!
If you look back at Priscilla’s Ms. Fortune outfit, you’ll notice that there’s a huge feather in her hat. That seemingly harmless stick of fluff always seems to find its way into my face while we’re walking. Jessica’s Ahri cosplay would take this one step further…
…with Ahri’s iconic nine gigantic tails. While soft and fluffy on the outside, each tail contained a steel strip on the inside which is how it gets its shape. Believe me, these were not so soft and fluffy when getting hit by them!
As you can see, my sister and her friends generally like to stick to a particular theme when it comes to creating cosplays for an event. We’ll just have to wait patiently and see what they have planned for the future. Next up, Edmonton Expo!
