World Goth Day: Why Can't I Be You?
If you know me at all, you know I don't need much of an excuse to cosplay.
So when we went out for "80s night: Robert Smith's Birthday edition" that was enough reason to debut my Kawaii Robert Smith costume.
This was back in April but since today is World Goth Day, its a perfect opportunity to unveil this spider-locked majesty...
The most satisfying part was... I always look up reference photos of people I'm impersonating to make sure the shapes are accurate. For Robert, I looked him up but laughably did not need to check the reference once! And still confidently nailed it.
Let's talk about the most important part of the ensemble, that wig!
This is the Aphrodite wig from EpicCosplay.com in black. The only cutting I did was a little mullet trim in the back and a LOT of slicing out a window to see through in the front. The rest is achieved by teasing into that iconic mop.
To illustrate the transformation this wig went though, I created a little time lapse video of my styling process. Enjoy!
