Dinosaur for a Pet by NsomniacArtist Dinosaur for a Pet by NsomniacArtist
My Gertrude Yorkes cosplay with Old Lace!

I was with an awesome Runaways group! I love them so much! And this is from the phososhoot we did! Here are a couple from my solo collection. I really love this cosplay. It was easy to throw together for myself, it was more challenging of the giant dinosaur companion.

For those who are curious, I made Old Lace!!!!! If you go to my tumblr there are progress pics online.

Wait, you mean Acen as in Acen 2012?:0

I'm going to try and think of a way to prop her up. Since she doesn't have any form of structure in her. Her legs don't support her. But it still was a blast to carry around. She definitely is a head turner ^_^

My dragon doesn´t have any support either .. but I think it´s a great idea to stabilize her!
How much did she weighed?

I don't know honestly, I just slinged over my shoulder, and held onto her arms like it was backpack almost. I was thinking of taking PVC pipe and making like a small frame underbelly for her to just rest on lol
