It has been a crazy roller-coaster kind of month so far but ….happily stitching away…
Inbetween the stitching I’ve been planning for my upcoming solo in 2016, had a encouraging studio visit and made some time to play!
I learned a new word a couple of days ago: Cosplay:
Cosplay (コスプレ,kosupure), a portmanteau of the words costume play, is a performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture and a broader use of the term “cosplay” applies to any costumed role-playing in venues apart from the stage.
Cosplay costumes vary greatly and can range from simple themed clothing to highly detailed costumes. It is generally considered different from Halloween and Mardi Gras costume wear, as the intention is to replicate a specific character, rather than to reflect the culture and symbolism of a holiday event. As such, when in costume, some cosplayers often seek to adopt the affect, mannerisms, and body language of the characters they portray (with “out of character” breaks). The characters chosen to be cosplayed may be sourced from any movie, TV series, book, comic book, video game, or music band anime and manga characters. Some cosplayers even choose to cosplay an original character of their own design or a fusion of different genres (e.g. a steampunk version of a character). (from Wikipedia)
anyway…..here goes my version of ‘Goldilocks”:
A great while ago when the world was full of wonders, there lived a woman in a town known as the Bay of the Sleeping Beauty. We called her :
Goldilocks, for she loved the colour gold (not really) and she’s always trying to unlock mysteries.
One sunny day she went in search for her heart
but found nothing …
until one day
she found it
but did not want anyone to see it …
so she buried it
and turned into a….sand angel
Okay so I admit….its kind of silly and corny, but it was fun anyway…we took random photos and later while I was looking through them I tried to make up a story….
How do you play?
