I’m wrapping up my coverage of GeekGirlCon 2014 with a post about the everyday cosplay outfits I wore at the con. You can find the sets I created for each outfit on my Polyvore page. Also, if you haven’t checked out Part I and Part II of my GGC wrap-up, be sure to do that, and remember to check out my post about the convention itself and my plans as I geared up for the con. Now let’s get to the outfits!
I started out the con with Doctor Who cosplay, mainly because the outfit contained leggings–the comfiest type of pants in the entire universe. While I was pretty certain I’d do Sam Winchester everday cosplay from the start, it took me a while to land on this outfit. I ultimately chose to go as the 12th Doctor because it was easily cobbled together with stuff I already had in my closet–including the sonic screwdriver, which, if you read my Her Universe Fangirl of the Day post, is usually kept at my desk at work for timey-wimey emergencies, but I digress..
The outfit was incredibly comfortable, and for a first dive into everyday cosplay, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out:
I also got really fancy, and I did an accent nail on each hand that related to each of my everyday cosplay outfits. Here was my Who-related accent nail (also, it’s the better accent nail–my SPN accent nail is a hot mess, just wait, you’ll see). It’s a tiny, teal Dalek!
I’d say my first dive into the world of everday cosplay was pretty successful–certainly more successful than my last attempts at full-out cosplay. If you want to see someone who is truly awesome at everyday cosplay, and was the inspiration behind my attempt, check out The Nerdy Girlie’s website.
