Costume Break Down: Couture Maleficent

Welcome to the first edition of 'Costume Break Down' on the Confessions of a Cosplay Girl Blog! Costume Break Down will highlight one of my costumes followed by a detailed description on how I put it all together.  The first costume I'd like to spotlight is Couture Maleficent. I decided to create this look for many reasons, the first being that Angelina Jolie is my favorite woman in the world. Her beauty, talent and work with the United Nations have kept me enchanted with the actress for as long as I can remember. I was thrilled when it was announced she would be playing Maleficent, who is my favorite Disney Villain.

Why Parental Supervision of Minors @ Cons is Important

You've all heard the story of the 17 year old girl who was found bloody and unconscious at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. At first reports stated that she was attacked and sexually assaulted but it was later confirmed by  the San Diego Police Department that no such thing had occurred. She had in fact fell while attempting to climb a 6 foot gate and was discovered by the pool of the Marriott Hotel at around 1am. Throughout this entire ordeal I have repeatedly asked myself the same question: where were her parents?

Debunking the Xena Comparison

At this weekends 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Brothers released the first official photo of actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman from the upcoming  Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice film. Immediately fan boys took to the interwebs to compare Diana's outfit to that of Xena, played by Lucy Lawless  in 1995-2001. I suppose many of the so-called "fan boys" thought they were being cleaver in referencing a t.v. series that's been off the air for over 10 years. If any of them were true fans they would have known that Princess Diana of Themyscira has been rocking the warrior princess look in comics before Xena ever hit the small screen.
