After dressing as Arwen, I decided that I should start trying to make my own costumes. I thought Cortana was a great character and I am definitely a Halo fan. I also liked that she was a rare cosplay. I decided to try to make her the best Cortana cosplay out there. This ends up being my goal on all of my costumes. 🙂 Unfortunately with a perfectionist attitude, you end up getting somewhat obsessed and spend a lot of time on the costumes. Now, even after, I can somewhat sew and use a sewing machine, I can say this costume was the most difficult out of all I have done so far. I didn’t have to sew a thing, but I dyed it and hand painted the entire costume. Things I’ve never done before and the stretchy material was difficult to lay flat to paint. I still want to make improvements to it. For some reason, I’ve still never been satisfied with it even though I get many kind compliments when I wear it.
I discovered later I was listed as one of the 25 hottest babes at DragonCon with GeeksofDoom.com. Very cool! Click here to see the article.
I also had a interview done about my costume. Here is the post with the video: http://littleneko.com/2010/05/oh-yeah-my-cortana-video/
