LACUS CLYNE Cosplay

^Ahhhh... Gundam...
Out of all the gundam series, I can safely say that Endless Waltz and Gundam Seed and Destiny are my most favorite.

I am still itching to cosplay Duo Maxwell but maybe when my crossplay skills have truly leveled up. hehehe

Anyway, I really like the SEED and Destiny series, that whole coordinators versus the naturals plot was something very interesting for me because I think that in the future, genetically enhanced human beings would be possible.

Back in 2009, I thought I'd try to cosplay Lacus, I just bought a pink wig out of impulse then.
It seemed a shame to not use it. My Lacus cosplay was a spur of the moment decision, I pulled out a plain dress from my closet, made Lacus' hair clip out of a hello panda box and asked a friend to borrow from another friend a haro. Also, I didn't have purple contact lenses so I used blue ones. Talk about an overnight cosplay.

I liked Lacus' aristocratic background, her awesome singing voice and her peaceful nature. Her pink hair also pulled me to her. Pink haired singers really fascinate me hahaha

It wasn't a bad cosplay, but it was very noobish, plus I felt like I cheated...
Fast forward to 2011, I finally had some cash and decided to re-cosplay Lacus just to give me peace of mind.

I chose Lacus's more simple outfits because I intended to cosplay Lacus during the summer, but plans got pushed back further and we came to 2012.

I used the same wig I used before but styled it a bit further, I got myself a real costume as seen in one of the episodes, I had a humongous haro, I got purple contact lenses, I made a better hairpin and I got better make up skills and awesome photogs to document said cosplay.

I liked cosplaying Lacus so much that I wore the costume three times hahahaha That's something as usually, when I am happy with a cosplay, I move on to other characters. So many cosplay plans, so little time and money XDD

trying to be cute hahahahaha


I really like my costume, mad props to my most trusted seamstress. I loved how she executed the folds on the top part of the costume, looks just like origami! Most cosers I see just put ruffles on there, but am super glad mys seamstress tried and succeeded in imitating that part :3

Also, my costume was made entirely out of geena as I was low on budget then , the color was just right and I wanted the dress to be light and flowy as originally I planned on this costume to be for summer. Since now I am done with Lacus, mebbe I'll try to cosplay Meer as well? hehehehe
