Costumes Notes

A fantastic movie, a wonderful protagonist, and a perfect outfit for travel and lazy days.

It's also almost the quintessential closet cosplay: the shirt and capris were from SmartSet, the shoes are converse low-tops, the belt was a Value Village find, and the wig was New Look Leslie in Henna Red with minor styling. I'm on version two of both the shirt and capris as version one ended up in daily rotation in my regular wardrobe.

I still like pulling out Paprika every now and then, especially for days when I won't have a chance to change before having to leave/after arriving at the convention.
