Hello and welcome to Costume Me! This blog is going to be run by myself, Jasmine, and my bestie, Jazmine. We're both cosplayers who have been at it for somewhere around 10 years.
A little about myself, I'm Jasmine, 23 at current. My first real cosplay was as Temari from Naruto when I was in either 9th or 10th grade. I fell in love with it after that. I (and my friends) cosplay at just about any chance I (we) get, from midnight premiers to cons, to just because. I make my own outfits from pieces I find either in my closet or I purchase. I love hitting up thrift stores and modifying pieces already made. I also love doing the make up for my friends, my favorite ones so far were the Cannibal Chief Captain Jack (from Pirates of the Caribbean 2(not the best picture, lol)) and Harvey Dent (from The Dark Knight (this picture was taken at the end of the day after much use. Sadly, I didn't get one from when I'd just put it on her)). I'm working on getting my AA in Fashion Design then transferring to get my BA in Costume Design.
Hullo there! My name's Jaz, I'm 23 years old and a screenwriting major. I've always loved costuming, my grandmother used to make my Halloween costumes by hand till I reached high school. The first real costume I made on my own was my Meriadoc "Merry" Brandybuck outfit from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. I'm not the best sewer so, like Jas, I try to piece outfits together using store bought materials or what I have my in my own closet. My motto is to modify, modify and modify! I get rather crazy when it comes to costume details :P I find any and ALL reasons to cosplay for an event. I love to dress up for midnight movie premiers, conventions or sometimes just randomly.
