Buffy the Vampire Slayer Cosplay

When Jonathan and I moved to Pensacola, we didn’t bother packing any of our cosplays. I figured we’d be far too busy with a newborn, we wouldn’t have any events to wear them to, and having just popped out a baby I doubted any of my costumes would fit (and I doubted right!).

So when we decided to go to FANdom Con, and anime convention here in Pensacola, we started getting some serious cosplay itchy feet. We had to cosplay, and we had to cosplay NOW. We didn’t know who to go as, and we were very much out of time for putting any decent costumes together. So we were resigning ourselves to go “naked” as I like to call mundane wear.

BUT THEN! Jonathan made a comment about his hair looking like Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and then a lightbulb just kinda went off. I’d go as Dark Willow, and Jon would go as Spike! Jon was able to pull the entire outfit out of his closet (just had to buy the red shirt), and I was able to find the pants and denim jacket at a thrift store. And voila! Spike and Willow cosplay.

We call these easy clothing costume “Closet Cosplays”. And while they’re not my favorite, they are fun to whip together for quick photoshoots and to keep the money draining cosplay bug at bay. We took these photos at St. Michael’s Cemetery in Pensacola, Florida, and our friend Mason helped us watch Tessa / take photos during the shoot. So! Whadya think? ^_^

    Love it! You look so scary and your husband looks like he is the only one strong enough to conquer you.

    They look awesome! I am not familiar with ‘Dark Willow’, but I know Spike. Jon needs to stop shape-shifting that face of his! I love the effects you used, and the tinting of the photos is perfect for Halloween time. Good job baby girl!

        Don’t tempt me.. I loooove facebook groups for some reason.. I think I’m in too many >< At any rate, congrats on the new addition! Your cosplays are awesome, I wish I had the dedication, and time. I used to have a Rinoa duster sweater when I was 12 and I wore it every day.. That's as close as I've come tho.

    Wow! Just found your site (through your diaper covers!) and love your cosplay stuff. We love dressing up but have never done the cosplay thing, not even sure if it’s big in New Zealand.
