Last week myself, Lily and Amy all attended MCM Birmingham Comic Con. It was something we decided fairly last minute and as such we decided to wear “put together” costumes instead of handmade ones. I’d previously posted about putting together a cosplay costume, where I’d showed you how I intended to make a Gogo Tomago outfit out of clothes bought from the high street. It was this that decided us on Gogo and Honey Lemon from Big Hero 6 and since I sell a Baymax dress at Closet Geek, Lily wore this to go with us.
Though I definitely didn’t feel as happy dressing up in store bought clothes as I do when I make it myself, it was still a lot of fun to do. Amy and I both wore wigs and while they weren’t as nice as some of the wigs we’ve previously worn, they did the job. Majority of both mine and Amy’s costumes were bought on Ebay, though we both did make alterations. While I don’t know how much hers cost to put together, the total cost of mine was around £40, plus the wig.
I have to admit I did feel a little fat in it and I didn’t really think of Gogo being sporty until I was actually wearing the outfit. I was pleased at how easily it came together but sadly I don’t think I’ll wear it again.
Lily on the other hand looked cute as a button! (excuse my washing in the background!).
