Shayla Shayla [swimsuit] :: El Hazard
Pft. Because I want to show my range as a cosplayer, natch. Bathing suit variant cosplay? Scratch that one off the list. Uh. Yup. See the original version of Shayla here.
It’s hard to go wrong with less than a yard of spandex. I let the jewelry details slide because this was a quick costume I didn’t intend on wearing often. This photoshoot was the worst. I had to wake up at 5am to spray tan myself nuclear orange, and somehow magically stuff my top with 2 sets of fake boobs. So I’m covered in double-sided tape, a quart of fake tan, and a giant winter hat otherwise known as a wig. Then I have sand in every crease of my body, and I’m tired and cranky and sweaty and squinting in the blinding hot hot sun and then trying to, like, look like I’m enjoying myself. I was just grateful that Shayla scowls and is pissed a lot. Being in character was pretty easy.
