I'm such a Disney Kid!!
Isn't it obvious?! I have been cosplaying several Disney characters that I have grown up with and are my favourite characters ever! Though I love a lot of Disney movies deciding which characters to cosplay is based on whether I can relate to the character or if I'm similar with them not only physically but in their own unique characteristics. For Megara, I was actually deciding beforehand if I would go with Esmeralda or her. I both love the characters and I'm still planning on doing her. Yes, they are 2 totally different characters but in a way I believe I have a part of me in them as well. Obviously, I decided to do Megara first from the animated movie Hercules.
First of all A big thank you to Ian Cartalaba for making my costume (though we had some problems with the courier, everything went according to plan) to Jovit Sanguyo for being my HMUA, he also did some of my hair and makeup from other projects, to Jp our stylist during our shoot at NYNP studio thank you as well and to mnphotography.
My wig was bought at Vogue Royal, it's color is chocolate brown and is 2 pairs to make it more thick and fluffy (I sewed the 2 wigs together so it won't fall off) though it's really heavy and tight after several hours of wearing it, it makes my head hurt ehehehhe but it's alright and lastly, I was lucky enough to find a pair of flat sandals at SM Dept.store.
If you're wondering what makes me want to be Megara is I love her feistiness and independence. She's sexy and very in touch with herself that she knows she can get what she wants with just her charms. But underneath her hard front, we all know it's just her defense mechanism, she is such a loveable character that is just afraid to get hurt again.
After our shoot at the studio we went to SMX, Otaku Expo later that afternoon, met new people/cosplayers and saw and spent time with my cosplay friends as well. All in all it was a great day to become someone you totally adore Cheers!
