Cosplay Improvement - Grell Sutcliff by StickieBun13 Cosplay Improvement - Grell Sutcliff by StickieBun13
Okay, so, this is one of the very first pics of me as Grell at my first con cosplaying. He was my First cosplay ever and this was my debut of him.

Next to that is my improved cosplay one year later. (I didn't do this year as I haven't really improved him since then and he's about the same.)

I'm posting this mostly because I get a lot of notes from people asking me about cosplaying. They all seem to be under the impression that I was always as good as I am now. This is not the case. Just like anyone, I started somewhere and worked to improve. All you can do is simply start. do the best you can do and slowly as you learn more, improve upon what you have. You'll be amazed with your own improvement in such a short time. Asking questions is good, but please, please don't be discouraged if you aren't perfect at first, or that others around you are "Better". No matter what, you are amazing, and remember, Cosplay is for fun. :)

Awkward enough, but I sorta prefer the first picture - just as a picture I suppose though, because I like that blow kiss. WEll thats just me liking the pose ;) The wig is definitely WAY better now. Way more styled and I like the glasses better too, but you are not really proving us wrong - you have always been really good

I'm not trying to prove anyone wrong. Just show people that they will improve over time. So many people come to me thinking they can't cosplay because theyr first try isn't perfect.

Afjaklfs oh my GOSH :heart: you have improved so much!!

I think it is a lot due to the setup of the photo, the photography techniques/lighting/etc.
I'm curious, do you make all your cosplays from scratch, or do you order parts and then modify them?

You really improved on that wig :D
But I still love both cosplays very much :heart: You got two sides of Grell's personality~

I make from scratch most of my cosplays. The rest I modify or commission someone to do if I don't have the skills. I don't buy online as i personally do mot like the quality of those premade outfits.

yes, the photography does add to the second picture, however, my skills in makeup improved too, and i remade a lot of the outfit

Thank you :hug:

Well the hair and makeup were fabulous as well. I love the second wig looks like his actual hair. Did you use styling paste on the wig?

It's actually the same wig, I just cut and styled it using a little Got2bglued gel. (It now needs to be replaced, though. the wind got ahold of it one too many times....)
