That’s right, friends, it’s the end of the month again and, as such, it’s time for me to announce what the upcoming month is going to look like!
Next month’s theme isn’t really so much a theme as it is an overarching idea for the posts, but it’s something I’m really excited to do!
The month of July is going to be a challenge month!
Since I started posting, I have gotten some really wonderful feedback from my regular readers. These people have also been giving me some really great ideas for new cosplays to try.
I took the first five ideas I was given to fill the five Tuesdays in July, and I have to admit that I was given some really great characters and ideas.
The first Tuesday’s character was posed to me by Whiplash O’Reilly of the Jackdaws, an exceptional group of musicians and I highly recommend you check out on their website here. (I know I post a lot of links to the stuff my friends do, but what can I say? I have awesome, talented friends) Whiplash suggested a character you won’t like when he’s angry:
Up next, selected by my extremely supportive fiancé, is Bobby Singer from Supernatural and will be portrayed by a super cute guest model (It’s definitely him. We’re gross and cute and I’m not sorry)
After that, a familiar name has chosen for me to put together San, otherwise known as Princess Mononoke. This was chosen by none other than my friend guest model for Sailor Mercury, Haley Mortensen of illustration fame! (Yeah, another link you should check out)
The week after that will feature a character selected by my biggest fan: My mama. (Hi mom!) She told me to do a look for Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She did want me to try to make the yellow dress look work, but I haven’t found a good way to do it yet, so I’m doing the easy blue one first
The last character to make an appearance in July will be the wonderfully grim demon barber of Fleet Street: Sweeny Todd. This one was selected by one of my most amazing and closest friends, Dave
I’m really excited for this month! I think it has a lot to do with the fact that this blog is interesting enough for people to even want to participate in helping me pick my characters.
See you On Tuesday!
