I've signed up for my very first cosplay competition! Yep, I registered as a competitor at Edmonton Expo next month, where I will be cosplaying Jafar. I'm still very new to cosplay, but I figured what's the worst that could happen? I'm only entering in novice, but I've seen novice competitors at Calgary Expo that were insanely talented, so who knows.
The other crazy part? I'm not done my costume. Not even close! I have muslin created for the robe, but am waiting for my fabric to arrive. I have a start on the staff, but a long way to go on that. I haven't even started the shoe covers, undershirt and turban. Not to mention researching the best way to give myself a goatee.
But I still have almost exactly one month, so I should be fine.
But this also means I'll be starting up with WIP Wednesdays for the next 5 weeks while I create a competition worthy costume. Wish me luck!
