Everyday Cosplay #1: April O’Neil

There are two types of cosplay. The first one is full-on cosplay, or the cosplay you would do for special events–premieres, conventions, book signings. If you want to rock the Effie Trinket wig or life-size TARDIS costume, this is the time to do it. Everyday cosplay is the kind of cosplay that you can wear to the store without everyone surrounding you thinking “Must be a geeky comic convention nearby”. It looks regular enough to be street clothes, but to the occasional fangirl/fanboy you encounter, it’s a little hint into your real fandom. I’ll list all prices and websites too. Please suggest ideas in the comments!

Everyday Cosplay #1 is April O’ Neil from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I’ve done the 2012/13 version, featuring a teenage, redhead April. I’d love feedback! P.S. If the image is really blurry, I’ve posted the prices and links below.
