Some of you may have noticed that I took a bit of a break from blogging last week. That’s because I was going crazy trying to switch my blog over from Blogger to self-hosted WordPress! I had been talking about making the change for a while now and decided on a whim to just go for it…without thinking through the repercussions, haha. I still have A LOT of changes that I want to make, but I feel like I’m really making progress compared to how this blog looked when I first switched!
Anyway, I’m so excited for this new monthly segment created by the lovely Danielle of From Girlie to Nerdy and Charlie of Happy Little Geek. It’s called Casual Cosplay Connections and it’s already so much fun! Each month we’ll be throwing together our casual cosplay outfits for a particular theme. This month’s theme was video games, which meant that I had a whole slew of characters to choose from…but surprise surprise, I went with my favorite character in Overwatch!
Lúcio is my jam, you guys. I’ve played Overwatch for 50+ hours and almost half of them have been with this cutie. I really believe that he’s one of the biggest reasons that this has become my favorite game! So of course I couldn’t pass up the chance to model myself after my honey<3
I went with a simple green tank top, a yellow cardigan, and the most comfortable blue exercise pants you could ever imagine. If I owned a pair of roller blades, you can bet I would have rocked this outfit while skating around the block!
I just had to throw in my little frog earrings, and my headphone necklace was too perfect for this look! For those of you who don’t know, Lúcio is a hero by day but a DJ by night, so headphones are kind of his thing.
It turns out that I’m not really feeling the full-body shots of myself right now, but I still wanted to share a photo of the complete look. Sorry for the low-quality phone camera photo, but until I buy some new lenses for my camera, my selfie skills are a little limited.
So there you have it! My casual cosplay inspired by a video game for the first month of Casual Cosplay Connections. I really enjoyed putting this outfit together and I hope to see more people join in next month! For more information on this segment, check out the original post here.
I’d love to hear your thoughts! If you were to dress up as any video game character, who would you choose?
