As an avid wannabe, I wanted to cosplay for sometime but had no inclination towards anything in particular. One of my initial thought was to try hijab lolita cosplay but I don’t really feel like dolling up as a too feminine character. Thus so far I have chosen to try out pseudo cat woman cosplay last year, and also tried being Konan at a few ACG (anime comic games) events here in Malaysia.
Anyway recently I got myself addicted to the anime and manga Shingeki No Kyojin or Attack On Titan, and I feel that the Scout Regiment cosplay is suitable for me. They have major characters in their 30s and that made me jump with joy. I also think that the cosplay is attainable, and most probably I might try to be a female hijabista Hange Zoe. She wears a glass and I also wear one, so I might need to repurpose my old spectacles into a strapped goggle like how she wears one outside the walls.
Of course no cosplay research is complete with a gugel search. There is a wealth of information out there. Let’s look at my gugel results.
Here is a tutorial on how to diy the 3DMG straps.

The rest of the costumes can easily be bought online. Like the straps, if you are from Malaysia you can buy from overseas via lazada. So far my shopping experience with Lazada is quite pleasant, I bought a series of Naruto characters last year and they arrive healthy as hell within the delivery duration promised.

It’s going to cost at least RM200 for me to complete the cosplay but I think it is going to be worth it.
