Aimee loves Jessie, RuffleButt Cosplay!
This weeks’s Friday Fave is my friend, Jessie Pridemore (RuffleButt Cosplay). You can find Jessie on Facebook here and on DeviantArt (where she posts her tutorials, photos and cosplay), Tumblr and ACP. (Above left, Phoenix Five Emma Frost. Above right Madoka photo by foto fong!)
Jessie really gets lovely tailoring in her costumes. She seems to always be trying to learn a new technique like learning to use horsehair braid and when she’s learned it she helps everyone else out with a tutorial! With her above pink and white Madoka costume, instead of just using a store bought petticoat or two, she spent a ton of time ruffling a 14 tier, 100 yard custom petticoat. I also really love that Jessie tries to encourage people to be ok with their geeky self. And I love that Jessie is always tasteful in the way she wears her costumes, like the above Emma Frost costume uses dance tights.
Below, Jessie is cosplaying from one of my favorite manga, Battle Angel Alita! Look at these awesome photos by Anna Fischer.
Jessie has also started offering patterns for sale, too. I look forward to what she ends up offering in the future!
And then today she cut off 16 inches of her hair to give to Wigs for Kids (a nonprofit providing wigs for kids who lost their hair to illness.) So Rock ON, Jessie.
