This weekend, The Wonky Pirates (aka me and VelevenÂ) brought a bit of Dress Rosa to Supanova Pop Culture Expo Perth 2014! Cosplaying Donquixote Doflamingo has been a dream of mine since Punk Hazard was released - it was incredible to be able to finally finish sewing all of those feathers together and see him become a reality! Please make Doffy welcome. Or he'll probably kill you and enjoy every moment of it. Fufufufufu! XD
More pics to follow, hopefully, but VelevenÂ was particularly proud of taking and editing this shot tonight so I thought I'd better submit it while it was hot off the press!

In December last year *Berpi and I went to a Cosplay Picnic. It was a rather last minute decision, so in one day we put together some casual Crimin outfits for Usopp and Luffy to wear. *Berpi also made some makeshift but very awesome goggles! I made a Crimin singlet from scratch but unfortunately you can't see the design in this picture- I'll have to upload another one soon. This photo was a timer shot in our local park afterwards.
Crimin-rockin' Usopp - E Crimin-rockin' Luffy - me
Here's the first pic of me as CAPTAIN Usopp in all his cowardly brilliance, from Eiichiro Oda's One Piece Strong World!
He’s my favourite One Piece character so I was determined to do his highly-animated expressions justice. I truly enjoyed strutting around in this guy’s boots!
I’m a novice cosplayer, so I relied on simple methods to bring this colourful, eccentric outfit together. His helmet was lots of fun, and Kabuto (the slingshot) was probably the fiddliest part, taking plenty of wire, elastic, reticulation piping, hot-glue, spray-paint, ingenuity and perseverance to get it all done. The nose was challenging … and a little painful! Oh, and yes: the rest is just me and make-up.
Mutiny Go! Cosplay ([link]) had a fantastic time stomping around the local Botanical Gardens for our photoshoot with the incredible *Risachantag (kindly assisted by the amazing ~rallamajoop and ~Shastachan) at the beginning of June.
**********UPDATE********** Thanks to all who voted for me in the 2012 Otaku House Cosplay Idol Competition. I didn't get through, but the support I received was really nice, so thank you all very much! You're all very kind. xx **************************
Another pic from Mutiny Go! Cosplay's ([link]) One Piece Strong World photoshoot with the incredible *Risachantag (kindly assisted by the amazing ~rallamajoop and ~Shastachan) at the beginning of June. This one's me and my sis. We love the way Usopp and Luffy like to clown around a bit like brothers, so it's fun to cosplay them together. ~Veleven did a great job of cleaning this one up - I can't take any credit for how good it looks.
Here's a shot *Veleven took of me after we went to a cosplay picnic for Christmas last year. We made Crimin shirts and dressed casual for summer. I dunno - Usopp could be sleeping, or maybe he's thinking up stories to add to his repertoire for the next time he wants to impress Luffy or Chopper.
I dunno, Usopp. Maybe your shorts. Your face. Your ... Nah - kidding, man! You know we love you!
Another shot *Veleven took after the cosplay picnic last year in the casual outfits we made in a day. My favourite thing about this was that I finally got to wear Usopp's iconic sniper goggles from Loguetown. (Even cooler was that my friend Sofie 'stole' them for her Bon Clay cosplay for Supanova in June this year. Loved it!)
My cosplay as Luffy in his Strong World adventure gear! This was taken by the lovely *Risachantag during our One Piece Strong World photoshoot at the local Botanical Golf course last month. It was super-fun and we had a fantastic time running through the gardens and perplexing the mini-golfers.
This was quite an accidental shot since we were just talking about something with ~Storyscarecrow and ~Lapirin happened to take a picture out of it. I think it turned out quite a heartwarming one so I decided to post it
