10 Minute Cosplay Challenge

amytrisaber_cropped

One reason that people can be afraid to try cosplay is because of concerns about not being screen accurate or “good” enough. Happily, that doesn’t matter. If you’re making an effort and having fun, you can cosplay at any level you’re comfortable with. You’ll gain knowledge about techniques and materials as you go along, and you’ll start to see clothing, belts, and scraps differently. You’ll notice shapes and see the costume potential for many items around your house. That skill is incredibly valuable and will help you pull last minute ensembles together – like for this challenge!

On a snowy day last week, I decided I wanted to re-create the Kylo Ren scene from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. The Sith (presumably) appears in a snow-covered forest with a red trisaber. I didn’t have anything that exactly matched his raggedy-looking black robes in my closet, but in ten minutes I was able to piece together black jeans, a black skirt, a black long-sleeved t-shirt, leather gloves, black boots, and a black cape (it’s my Merida cape turned inside out). It’s not perfect, but it did allow me to achieve similar lines for a quick photo.

I’d love to see you tackle the costume of your choice with a ten minute assembly. Share links to the results in the comments on send photos to me on Twitter. I’ll feature those who participate in an upcoming blog post.
