I had so much fun as Rapunzel from Tangled, and I was super happy with how we went on stage. It was probably a GAJILLION times more intimidating being on stage and trying to stay in character (I still cringe at my super-Aussie use of the anachronisms “no worries” and “guys”) and aside from that I think we did an okay job. Here’s a video my friend took of the interview stage- the interviewer is John Robertson, who is an amazing comedian who also hails from Perth, and you should really check out his stuff :)
We were bumped up to the Advanced level of the cosplay competition at registration, because they took one look at my costume (and this is the kicker, I was missing my Flynn and had to drive in so I was only wearing my short brown wig, so they hadn’t even seen my long wig) and said that it was too well made for me to enter Beginners level anymore. I was really pleased that they’d noticed the construction, but also somewhat deflated because I didn’t think we had a chance to win anything - and then we took out Best Costume in Advanced level!!! :D :D :D
I was a bit sad my fibre optics didn’t work, but that’s for next time I guess.
