Now that Pax South is over and I’ve had a bit of a chill break, I’m itching to start sewing. Even though I have a list of cosplays I want to make, none of them are inspiring me enough to start on! I’ve been watching a lot of Katsucon footage, which is always my go-to for cosplay inspiration, and over the course of a few days I have concluded the following:
Really itchin to make a cosplay with beautiful brocades and silks and textures…feels like I should make an original design of something??😐

I couldn’t think of anything off the top of my head from any current shows/games, and I started to think back to the designs I loved from my first introduction of manga (CLAMP artbooks, ect). But, I started to get worried that those gowns I loved when I was twelve was just too “old school” and wouldn’t be recognized. Then, on a wildly productive and slightly non sober Monday night, the gears in my head started going crazy. She was the very first entry on my Dream Cosplay List and now, I’m about to make my thirteen-year-old self very very happy. I’m going to make Belldandy!
I’m excited to finally chronicle an entire cosplay from start to finish, but first we have to make a plan!
