About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- It's like Ordon Link: Lite. Lots of little deets you can't really see thrown in here, but I saw this movie three times in IMAX so I couldn't help but notice them and incorporate them :B
The pants are sandpapered a bit to get the worn look on the knees (accidentally did it too much on one and there's a tiny hole)
Glad my sister is into brand stuff, so I didn't have to buy boots!
[not pictured yet]The fur vest was a luck-out. It's made from two Mongolian faux fur minirugs that were on clearance at Pier 1 for $2.98 each. I hand-sewed them together and finished the edges off with more hand-sewing so it doesn't fray. Astrid is Selphie Fairy! <3
- Personal Thoughts:
- I never would've guessed I'd cosplay from a Dreamworks CGI film. Ever.
I absolutely adore Chris Sanders and when I heard he and Dean DeBlois (both did Lilo & Stitch, one of my favorite movies) were teaming up again to make this movie, I was so excited! They're such an awesome duo and really know how to make fantastic movies with a ton of heart and a unique sense of humor. HTTYD was just that and I love it so much!
I relate to Hiccup, like, a lot. We're both a little socially awkward and have experienced being outcast by our peers, we're both creative, and we both have whiny voices, haha...ha.
