Also, as a lady, it's really hard for me to cosplay Shawn or Gus. Shawn looks like he walked straight out of an American Eagle ad, and Gus just wears men's business casual. Then there's Juliet, but she just wears suits everyday. And I don't have much use for suit wearing. I did consider cosplaying a pineapple, but finding a yellow dress in February is a Herculean task. So I landed squarely on the Blueberry, despite it being a car. I mean, this isn't unprecedented--there was that one time I dressed up as R2D2.
And it turns out, pulling together a Blueberry cosplay is pretty damn easy.
- Wear all blue
- Stick to black, silver, and white accessories
Very simple. I own a blue dress, so that's what I picked out. But I think different shades of blue in a skirt and top would also be nice. I'm also not ruling out blue jeans as a legit option.
So, no. This is not one of those cosplays that will be recognized. But it is one of those cosplays that makes me insanely happy, which is the whole point of casual cosplay. I mean, just look at these baller accessories.
So there you go--your casual Psych cosplay. As always, I encourage you to use items you already own to recreate your favorite characters. And don't be limited by the fact that your favorite character isn't a person. Casual cosplay is for you and you alone, so always do what makes you the happiest.
