Dragon Ball Bulma by straywind Dragon Ball Bulma by straywind
I realize I never posted a photo of my Bulma costume in which I have my Dragon Ball. Time to rectify that! I purchased my Dragon Ball on eBay last year. I decided to buy the 2 star ball since that's the ball Bulma finds in her house, which prompts her to go on a quest to find the balls. The prop was super popular! I think almost as many people wanted photos of my Dragon Ball as they wanted photos of me. (^_^) It's the proper size for a Dragon Ball so it looks amazing!

I'm incredibly proud of this costume. It's a pretty simple design, but everything came together really nicely and I made the whole costume in just a few weeks. I need to figure out more costumes to make like this one especially after spending half of the year working on my Princess Peach costume. XD

This brings back memories ^^ (DB was the first manga I've ever read!)

Nice cosplay! Was this taken at Otakuthon? (I attend it every year ^^ )

Thank you! I wanted to Cosplay Bulma for so long before I finally settled on making this costume. I'm really happy with how it turned out. (^^)

I did wear this costume at Otakuthon 2012. I attend the con in 2012 and last year, but I don't think I'll be attending it again. :( Total bummer, I would love to meet you! Your costumes are awesome! If you ever come to Anime North then let me know! (^_^)b

You're welcome!

Good choice! Young Bulma was the best XD (I also thought about cosplaying her one day, but I'd rather have people cosplaying DB with me as well)

Awww, why not? I know it's probably not the best out there, but I find it really nice :)
And yes! Too bad we didn't talk to each other before! I'm always as Claire at Otakuthon XD (well, I was as Steve in 2012 :XD: ) And thank you! ^^

I have some friends who go to Anime North every year, but I heard good and bad comments about it. Since I already attend 2 cons per year (Otakon gets pretty expensive, since it's in the states), I'm not sure if I could afford a third one. I could look with those friends though and see how much it would cost.

But it'd be nice to meet you there! Maybe do a photoshoot or something ^^

I hope you get a chance to Cosplay Bulma! She's such a cool character. (^^)

Unfortunately, the two times that I went to Otakuthon I had some really bad experiences so I can't go through with attempting to attend the con again. I definitely think Otakuthon is a neat con with some really great events, but I just wasn't able to enjoy it as much as I wanted to.

It's too bad I didn't run into you previously! It would have brightened my con! I wore Rebecca to the con in 2012, but I was only in it briefly.

Anime North can be quite a mixed bag as a convention. I enjoy it because it's local, but I've been pulling back from it these last couple of years. It's not really comparable to Otakon, which is much bigger and more impressive, but it is a bigger con than Otakuthon. Anime North is really spread out, though, with events in a few close by locations. Up until last year I was a panelist on a Resident Evil panel at the con, but it's too much work to coordinate doing panels now so I've given up on it. It's really hard to say if it's 100% worth attending, but if you did one day attend the con, I hope you have a good time!

Hopefully we do cross paths one day! My friend Ammie and her bf Jay are also big Resident Evil fans and Cosplayers and I'm sure they would love to meet you too! (^_^)

Awesome job!! You are a perfect Bulma! The dragon ball is amazing! Always nice when you can find something that is perfect for a cosplay prop. You definitely need to do something simple and awesome like this for your next cosplay. Peach was definitely a lot of work for you.
