My First Cosplay

In high school I was OBSESSED with Lord of the Rings. I went to midnight premiers, camped out to get movie tickets, was in a LotR discussion group at the Barnes and Noble. I learned to write in Elvish and was even on a LotR chat room most nights. I’m still friends with a couple of those people I met online.

My little group of friends were getting ready to go to one of the midnight premiers and decided that we were going to dress up. I had no idea what cosplay was or even that it was a thing. I just knew that I was excited and that I was going to be an elf. I was obviously on a very strict budget of almost nothing because I was in high school. I basically up-cycled a dress that I wore to my sisters wedding into a dress that I thought an elf would wear. I added sleeves that came to a point like these but not as dramatic:

Unfortunately I only have two pictures and they’re not that great.

I wasn’t trying to be any specific elf. I took elements from both Galadriel and Arwen and made it my own. I was pretty please with how it turned out. I wish I had better pictures of the sleeves. I didn’t use a pattern for any of it and I remember being so proud of the sleeves.

For my first cosplay, I think I did pretty well. I had no idea it was going to lead me to such an awesome community.

Fictional Character Crushes

I think we all have some fictional character crushes. Sometimes we can’t exactly explain why we have these crushes but they’re there. It can be their appearance, their personality and if you’re lucky, it’s both.

I thought I’d share a list (in no particular order) of some of mine!

    Howl – Howl’s Moving Castle

    I feel like I need to say that I have a crush on THIS Howl. He’s figured out what he wants to protect and then when he gets his heart back from Calcifer.  Ohhh. ❤

    Sokka – Avatar: The Last Airbender


    Sokka is just a giant goofball. I love it. 

    Sora – Kingdom Hearts


    Sora was one of my first video game character crushes. I can’t really explain it. I think it’s honestly just his amazing hair. 

    Loki – Thor & The Avengers



    Oh Loki. Such a noble villain. He just wants what he’s been promised. What girl doesn’t have a soft spot for a sexy baddie?

    Link – The Legend of Zelda


    This is the game that got me into gaming. I had such a major crush on Link. I remember correcting people very early on that this is in fact Link and not Zelda. 

    Jack Frost – Rise of the Guardians



    What a beautiful character Jack Frost is. His personality is just perfect.

    Luna Lovegood – Harry Potter


    Isn’t she just adorable? Don’t you just want to give her a hug? She’s quirky and cute.

    Sabrial – The Abhorsen Trilogy


    If you haven’t read these books – DO IT NOW! Sabriel is just an amazing book. I’ve read it probably a hundred times and enjoy it more and more each time. Seriously, if you haven’t read them you should. I cannot even tell you how much I love them. It has a strong female character and great companion that you’ll love to death. Garth Nix is an amazing writer.  Here is a link to buy the books:


    Rose Tyler – Doctor Who


    I can’t be the only one that cried on the Doomsday episode… I just can’t. She loved the Doctor so much. I love her.

    Hermione Granger – Harry Potter


      I love a girl with brains and Hermione definitely has them. She’s not only a babe but also such a smart witch.

      Do we share any of the same fictional crushes? What are some of your fictional crushes?
