Either way I’ll need a bloody good wig. What one should I go for? (decided to rule out the previously mentioned Roy Mustang costume, as literally NO ONE will know who I am)
OK, I’ve decided I’m gonna be the charming Miles Edgeworth (seeing as I now have the costume from a pal & don’t REALLY want to spend 60-80quid on a cosplay costume). Only thing I’m missing is THAT hair:
I’ve never worn a wig in my life so I have no experience at all: I don’t think there’s gonna be a wig exactly like this so what’s best? Should I get a long one & cut it? Advice please you lot :)
Now what I need is a hairdresser to turn it from generic-long-haired-beast to this:
Whoever does it will have my eternal love; partially because I wouldn’t have a clue where to even start with it!
PS No I am NOT posting a pic of me in said wig. I look like an absolute pleb (more than usual). HOW DO YOU PEOPLE HAVE LONG HAIR IT’S BLOODY MURDER >.< And don’t get me started on the fringe that keeps getting in my eyes! I prefer a skinhead I think…
So an update on my Halloween costume.
I have the wig to be styled, I have the fancy shoes & waistcoat, & I also have the cosplay suit my best pal bought online but he didn’t like it. Everything looks fine…until I try the trousers on properly. They’re so fecking short why didn’t I notice?!?! And they don’t look like they could be lengthened very much…..so what do I do?
God, & here I was thinking I had it all sorted. FAIL.
Miles Edgeworth costume finally fully sorted! (after ironing of course)
Now for the wig. I officially have a weekend to find someone that can shorten the wig I have in an effort to make it look a bit like Edgey’s ‘do, after the person who was originally going to do it suddenly decided she couldn’t. UGH.
I need a shave, hair needs some wax & the suit needs ironing BUT….you get the idea :p
While I enjoyed dressing up & being with friends, I wasn’t keen on where we went. Probably because it was my first time. It was the sort of place that wherever you looked, you made eye contact with someone creepy-looking. Not good when you’re dressed as a posh, almost-camp prosecutor.
On the prosecutor topic, someone recognised who I was dressed up as! A really pretty girl dressed as a fairy came up to me at the bar. This was how the conversation went:
Her: “Excuse me! My friend thinks you’re Austin Powers, but I don’t think you are…”
Me: “Umm no…”
Her: “…Is it Phoenix Wright?”
Me: “*smiles* Close!”
Her: “*el gasp* OH MY GOD YOU’RE MILES EDGEWORTH!!! *turns to friend* HE’S FROM MY FAVOURITE GAMES EVER! *jumps up & down* That’s an amazing costume, you look just like him!”
Me: *excited* You’ve actually made my night, someone knew who I was! :D”
Then she asked her friend to take a picture of me with her, then introduced herself as Danielle. She then got dragged away by a couple other friends & we said goodbye.
….I wish I got her full name. She was pretty, funny AND a big Ace Attorney fangirl! Sigh, time to have a look round Facebook I guess. Someone who I know must know her surely!
That isn’t being a bit weird is it? :/
Pic from before I went out on Halloween.
Small pic I know, but blame the mother’s terrible phone! :p
Kimi & I at the Halloween bash! The photographer caught us by surprise I think!
Ryu my best friend Ciaran at the Halloween bash. He was freezing when we were queueing outside in the rain, poor guy. I said he needs to beef up! xD
Only he can pull off the ‘pointing to my forehead in deep thought’ look.
