Hi, everybody! Today I want to tell you about recently passed festival in Moscow - Animatrix 2013. It passed on February the 3rd. I prepared on it cosplay from Hercules. I wanted to make it for a long time and I am madly glad that I at last managed to make it! I am really happy!
If you ask me: "Why did you cosplay Hercules, why espesually Megara? ! ". I can tell you that it is the most my favourite cartoon of childhood, and Meg is the most favourite character. Know, I don't love Disney's princesses, but I simply adore Meg! Because she is differs from ordinary princesses. Usually they are are defenseless, weak, too lovely and sugary. But Meg is very strong and impudent person. I love her for these qualities. It seems to me that she is the improbable girl! In the childhood I also couldn't present that sometime I will become her embodiment!I really happy!
I want to tell you a couple of words about Megara's suit. When I looked at the dress, I thought that I am easily did it. But, it was mistake. I got used cosplay on an anime, not Disney . For the 1st time I faced that the original is different everywhere! The dress of Meg throughout all cartoon changes the color, cut and dress is drawn that on the one hand, with another. The bang, belt, also constantly change the arrangement in a suit. Often I really entered in the deadlock and didn't know what I must to do. Simply because I couldn't understand what of options of a set of originals - true. But, by numerous viewing of animated films, Google, searches of figures and other pictures, I understood that Megara's dress is pink and changes the colour in lilac at approach of night, and a belt and a bang after all draw more on the right . I love Megara very much and therefore for me it was really important to consider all trifles in her costume. I hope that I managed it. As I hope that mine play wasn't pumped up and I similar with her at little.
Certainly the wig was a separate problem . Megara's hairdress contradicts gravitation laws, you knew? Such quite often it happens in animated films, but I found a way out, having put a wig on pro-wolf ,sewed two wig and pasted hair on a framework . With wig helped me my lfriend, for what I am improbably grateful to her. Without her helps there wouldnt be these cosplay! The wig keeps on me only by means of pins and hairpins in the head.
I am very happy that I have got Hercules. I want to tell Ichigo's so many thanks that he agreed to do him with me. If I did this cosplay alone, it precisely wouldn't bring so many positive emotions. Certainly, we differs from the canon because Megara and Hercules met only in adult age , but ours Hercules suit is taken from his teenager age... Actually Ichigo simply didn't manage to make an armor therefore we decided to manage a toga. But, I hope that sometime Ichigo will make the armor and we will see the adult, courageous Herc. You after all want it?
I want it, the truth!
At the moment I don't know it is worth to do photoshoot between adult Megara and young Hercules, after all it differs from the original... How do you think?!
In any case, many thanks for attention. I hope that it was interesting to you to read it!!
And some photos from festival!
