Cooking Mama is a character who teaches you how to cook in the videogame series of the same name. She is very friendly and supportive... when you do well. But when you do badly she steps in to "fix it" with her eyes a flame! Truthfully this is one of my favourite game series, and I have every single game from said series (I have 100% most of them).
This costume was technically the first costume I ever wore to a convention. Though it was very very briefly on the Friday of Fan Expo 2007. I made this costume really quickly the night before the con so I would have more than one costume. I made the bandana, and apron, and for that convention had styled my own hair to suit the character. Now I have a wig for it! The under apron shirt and jeans are just from my wardrobe so this is a mix match of made and bought. I do super love this character and this costume though regardless! My hope is to one day be able to do a super fun photoshoot cooking lots of things!
