Welcome to technically my *first* cosplay: The Mabel Pines Cosplay 😀
I’m SO EXCITED that I finally got around to shooting this cosplay. I remember rolling around on my carpet hot gluing LED’s into my thrift store turtle neck sweater, trying to get ready for San Deigo Comic Con. I was so excited to get it all finished, and I remember being equal parts sweaty and happy while I was wearing it, day of. IT WAS MARVELOUS.
Little did I know that this cosplay would give me the fever… AND THE ONLY CURE IS MORE COSPLAY. Fast forward a few more months, and I was whipping out my first worbla armor build… my McCree.
This cosplay is really cool because it lights up. It looked really neat in the actual convention hall, because it’s sort of dimly lit. Basically all of the pieces I bought, and then the sweater itself I cut up a bunch of felt, hot glued it on, and then poked holes in the stars, rainbow and mabel, so I could glue/felt in LED’s. It’s definitely a simple costume, but it was so perfect for my first one. I highly recommend doing something like this if it’s your first time cosplaying and you don’t want to do anything overwhelming.
AND THEN YOU CAN SAY YOU MADE A THING!! JUST LIKE MABEL!
