Winter Solider Female Cosplay

Went to NYCC again this year and this time decided to create a female Winter Solider cosplay. I've always loved cosplaying and usually opt for simpler DIY cosplay. This was my first time making an armor piece. I must say it took a lot of trial and error but overall I was super happy with the outcome! 

Here I am with Iron Man ripping out his arch reactor ;). I didn't end up making a glove because I was also planning on checking out the booths and attending panels while in cosplay so I wanted it to be easier on me. If you'd like a tutorial on how I made it let me know in the comments below! 

Follow Your Gut

I'm pretty sure we can all agree that following your gut can sometimes be terrifying. I mean.. "I feel like I'm going to puke" kind of terrifying. We sometimes get into these routines and just live our day to day because we just have been groomed to believe that that's how it is. All it takes is a small thing to snap you out of it. Then you have that OH FUCK moment like I did. 

We all have moments where we sit there and question every little thing in our live and if we are going down the right path. Sometime we think our life is going in a certain direction and then that shit is thrown off course REAL quick. But take a deep breathe because it's ok. That's right.... it's okay.

That's life. Shit happens. Move on.

So that's where I'm at. I was on this path and now I've been blown off course because I chose to switch the sails. (so poetic...I know). I'm following my gut here and it's fucking terrifying. Not going to lie.. but I know I have to do it. I'm telling my brain to shut up for a minute and I'm just diving into this next part of my journey. Is it the right choice? I have no idea.. but like I said.. it's okay!
