I finally had the chance to wear my new costume at an event. It wasn’t raining, in fact the sun was shining bright, but boy was it windy! As you can see, this isn’t exactly the best costume to wear on windy days — but it was worth it!
We had a blast at this event and it was fun to see what everyone made and wore. Christopher took photos for us, as usual, but we didn’t get as many as we probably should have, and Christopher is still a little shy about taking lots of photos of everyone. It can be hard to think of everything when you’re busy chatting and having fun! We almost forgot to take a group shot, in fact!
I also had the chance to finally finish putting makeup on the elf ear tips, as well as putting them on “for real.” I was very nervous I’d have trouble since I have so much hair and a lot of it tries to get in the way right where you’re gluing part of the ear down. I thought I would need Christopher’s help, but I managed to do it on my own thankfully. I was pleased they stayed on (in fact, I left them on for several hours after we got home so I could test how well and long they held up).
This was a fun costume, and I have to admit I wouldn’t mind having a few elven costumes of varying types. This one might be a little too annoying to wear at some events. I also updated the costume page with a few more photos, and some showing the better-blended ear tips a little more.
