So Midlands Expo was this weekend in Telford and I went along as Godot from the DS game Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations.
Sadly I never did manage to find a Phoenix Wright to troll but there’s always next time. I honestly didn’t expect Godot to be as well received as he was but there was a really lovely atmosphere surrounding the Phoenix Wright fans at this event - there was no shortage of people shouting OBJECTION at me or running up and telling me he was their favourite character. The look on a fan’s face when they see a character they love realised through cosplay is so uplifting. I’ll definitely wear this one again.
This was also my first masquerade and from what I could tell he went down pretty well with the audience, much better than I anticipated. I wasn’t expecting much of a reception but he got plenty of cheers - especially after I stood at the front of the stage and shouted OBJECTION at them XD
Oh and if anyone’s interested, the visor frame was made from a thermoplastic called worbla. I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to make masks, armour or props for their cosplays.
