Red from Supergiant Games’s Transistor
I had about 3 different ideas for PAX Prime 2014, and this was not among the original ones.
I didn’t think I would ever go with a character that I wouldn’t be able to pull off with my more-or-less regular appearance, however this year I decided to do something different: a cosplay with an emphasis on the prop rather than the costume.
I cheated a little with this one as I realized I wasn’t much of a costume crafter as I was a craft… crafter… The jacket came from somewhere hidden in my wardrobe, and the scarf and dress from H&M. I did however, make the belt (with no picture proof since I never thought I’d actually post them. Best idea.)
The Transistor definitely stole the spotlight that day, and there were even a few people who asked where they could buy one themselves! There were a few moments of awkwardly posing for pictures only to realize that people were only interested in photographing the Transistor and not… me… ;_;
Despite this crushing blow to my self-esteem, my photographer was kind enough to score some shots prior to us walking around and becoming increasingly more sweaty, disheveled, and unfortunate looking.
The Transistor definitely got a little more popular that day, got plenty of hugs, and even scored some free Transistor flash drives from the Supergiant Games booth!
