Marcy Derp

A wild Marcykarp has appeared! Cosplay. Food. Adventures. The pup. Silly faces. 1/2 of the cosplay group Pluto Knights.

Alisaie and Tataru love baby chocobos! Someone at FanFest made this AMAZING chocobo puppet. It was seriously the best, and she was so kind and friendly. I've still yet to finish getting my craft room in order after FanFest, but I hope to finish some long overdue projects this year so I can continue to make lovely memories like these with my friends. πŸ’• Tataru is @tinycookbigworld #finalfantasyxiv #ffxivfanfest
I've been so busy post FanFest I haven't had time to stop and share much! I want to do a full breakdown on Alisaie once I have time to photograph some details but in the meantime, here is a shot of @starlit.rose and I on stage that really shows off some details. I love this photo because you can actually see my boots! I went a little extra and carved my own platforms out of flip flop foam. I spent soooo much time carving and sanding, but the real monster to my surprise was patterning the boot covers. Eventually I had to sacrifice a bit of accuracy for seams that actually make sense. They are not very comfy and took a real beating during the day, but I'm really happy I did it! I was extremely nervous going up on stage as I haven't really competed much at all, but all of the contestants were so wonderful and supportive! It was a great and memorable experience just getting to walk on stage with Starlit as these precious twins and share our hard work and love of these characters to the game devs. πŸ’• . πŸ“Έ: Alphinaud: @starlit.rose Alisaie: Me #finalfantasyxiv #ffxivfanfest #alisaieleveilleur #alphinaudleveilleur #ffxivcosplay
Woo! Got my noble barding from the #ffxivfanfest cosplay contest! Mr. Corwen is so fancy now~ Part of me regrets not going for jiggly catbutt hat, but I'll get more use out of this tbh πŸ˜‚ #ffxiv #finalfantasyxiv
Happy Thanksgiving! I wanted to say what I'm thankful for, but I also still have a lot of feelings about Fanfest... So it will kind of cover a little bit of both. It's been a hard year for myself, and some of my friends, so managing to snag tickets for our entire group was amazing. Meeting up with some of my most beloved FC mates, who have been nothing but kind, funny and helpful the entire time I've played FFXIV was one of the best experiences I could have asked for. @tinycookbigworld is just as sweet and funny IRL as she is in game! From running around in costumes, food adventures and just hanging out as we tried not to fall asleep - everything this last week was better thanks to the group I was spending it with. Getting to actually play challenges with a full group of 8 friends in person was amazing, and we just all work together so well!! Screaming like idiots while running from monsters in Eureka, and beating Yojimbo at the very last second as things started to close would not have been the same without this group of people. ❀️ @starlit.rose in particular is one of the biggest rocks in my life and she worked her butt off to get her costume done so we could debut our twins together. She kept me motivated through her hard work, kept me sane when I would start to break down, and running around as twins with her AT FanFest was a dream come true (more on cos stuff later). And @kevlarcosplay who made sure I actually ate food during my con crunch and took care of all of our adult responsibilities so I could do nothing but work on cosplay once I was home for the past few months. So if you made it this far, I'm thankful for my friends, all of my friends. Old, new, online, FC - all of you. Thank you for sticking with me, adding excitement, humor and support to my life, and for just being you and enriching my life by being present.
We did it!!!! @starlit.rose and I survived prejudging and are finally enjoying FanFest!!! To all of our XIV cosplay friends, good luck today! Everyone looks amazing 😭😭 #ffxivcosplay #ffxivfanfest #fanfest #finalfantasyxiv
I can't believe it's only a week away from when I leave for FanFest 😭 so much left to do but so much that I've done already! It all feels like a blur. Friday I'll be wearing Alisaie with @starlit.rose as Alphi Saturday I'll be in my Moonfire Faire yukata as Alisaie (and prob as hyur earlier in the day when I'm lazy) with @starlit.rose again. Yukata twins art was commissioned from Chocosand (Tumblr) - you should definitely check out her work, it's amazing! When not in cosplay I'll be running around with my fellow FC pals and sporting my bard tights! I'm really looking forward to meeting so many other FFXIV fans. #finalfantasy #finalfantasyxiv #ffxiv #ffxivfanfest
With that, my coat, dress and belt/cape are done (minus one small piece that needs to be repainted). It's time to start SWEATING because I have a week and spare change left and my boots are still in patterning hell. I may or may not attempt the insane task of trying to bust out my props... But we shall see. I am not a wise woman.
AAAAAAAH look at this beautiful crossbow that @chibiandchubcosplay made for my Edgar Figaro cosplay. I am not worthy. 😭😭😭 The wood texture andndetails are so πŸ‘Œand exactly what I hoped for. Looking forward to sprucing this costume up next year and bringing it back out! #ffvi #ff6 #ffcosplay #edgarronifigaro
Sorry for the silence! I've been sewing, seam ripping everything, sewing it again, and again for the past few weeks. I have a long way to go. πŸ˜… There are some things I'd do differently if I could, but overall I'm happy with how it's coming along! Collar is just pinned on, but I'm finally to the point where will have to buckle down and attach the lining so I can install the zipper and attach the collar and cuffs (don't mind the fraying bits, I need to serge the lining). Still need to make that weird extra strap, but slowly but surely it's coming along. Wig is kind of a mess right now, but getting there. Skirt-cape is patterned, shoe patterns probably will be redone, but lots of mid progress pieces in the works. πŸ’€ Now we wait for the elusive email to tell us if we will be chosen as a tribute or not. #ffxivfanfest #ffxivcosplay #ffxiv #alisaieleveilleur #cosplaywip
So you may have already seen this from my story, but I FINALLY finished the base for Alisaie. Most of it will be covered, but I tried to keep things neat and boy it took forever. I finally taught myself to use my serger for this! Originally it was going to be a separate blouse and skirt, but I saw @sarahshortcakecosplay on one of her latest costumes actually do a dress and thought it was such a genius idea! Looks weird here, but it really cuts down on some of the bulk. Collar had some unclear texture, similar to embossing, so I went with some embroidered lace appliques. This outfit has so many varying shades of grey and black. πŸ˜‚ Side note, I really wish they had given Alisaie pants lmao, something closer to RDM gear bc holy mooooooly this skirt is short. Curse my stubby legs. Anywho, craft room is cleaned up so foday I hope to make some decent progress on my coat! #ffxiv #ffxivfanfest #alisaieleveilleur #cosplay #ffxivcosplay
Came home after a long week away while helping out my family & DnD is cancelled, so naturally @kevlarcosplay and I pull out the couchbed for maximum game night. πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ pupper refuses to leave my side xD
Tonight I met Timothy Zahn and almost cried. 😭
Attack on Titan daaay! πŸŽ‰ Jean is still my favorite AoT character to cosplay, but Hange is a ton of fun too! I love all the adventures that I was able to go on with my friends thanks to these costumes. πŸ’• Hange: me Levi: @starlit.rose Petra: @riiruns Photo by @koisplay_photography #attackontitan #shingekinokyojin #aot #snk
Happy anniversary, FFIX!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ While IX wasn't my first FF, it has been responsible for some of my most meaningful friendships, and has given me many wonderful memories. πŸ’– I met my cosplay partner in crime and best friend @starlit.rose thanks to geeking out over IX cosplay, so it's only natural that we have cosplayed from this game a ton over the years!! Hopefully in the semi near future I'll finally finish Garnet so I can cosplay your girlfriend at long last. πŸ’• There is way too many cosplayers to tag here, so I've tagged them all in the photos.

U.A.'s Big 3, Japan's Top Hero Candidates (and supreme cuties?!?!). I love these characters so much and can't wait for this arc to be animated so you can all know the greatness that are these dweebs. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– Mirio: @kevlarcosplay Nejire: Me Tamaki: @starlit.rose Photo taken by @macroadjustment_saagi (Thanks again!!) #bnhabig3 #bnha #bokunoheroacademia #mha #myheroacademia #miriotogata #nejirehadou #tamakiamajiki #bnhacosplay #akon2018
When your cat really doesn't like the fact you won't share your macaron. πŸ˜‚ He just flew up on the couch and kept knocking it out of my hand. Equal parts "PAWS OFF DUDE" and dying of laughter at his persistence.
U.A.'s top students, known as The Big 3. Uuuuggghhhhh. I love these precious children so much, and cosplaying this group with two of my favorite people made it even better. I can't wait for this arc to finally be animated ;A; _____________________ Mirio: @kevlarcosplay Nejire: me~ Tamaki: @starlit.rose Thank you for the πŸ“Έ @macroadjustment_saagi _____________________ #bnha #bokunoheroacademia #mha #myheroacademia #bnhabig3 #nejirehadou #nejirechan #tamakiamajiki #suneater #miriotogata #lemillion #thebig3 #akon2018
