This was featured on Cosplay Sass’s blog first, but I couldn’t help but share it. Do you remember the first Buffy The Vampire Slayer cosplay photoshoot I shared? I was Nikki Wood, the mother of Principal Wood and the infamous Slayer victim of New York. or years, I imagined having a badass cosplay partner who was going to really show out. Cosplay Sass did it.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer Cosplay // Nikki and Spike.
The year is 1977 and the fight begins in a train car. Spike (Cosplay Sass) approached Nikki, with a rail that he broke off from the train car with vampire strength. Nikki, our sworn Vampire killing leader, was undeterred. A fight ensued.. and honestly, it looks like our beloved slayer may have the upper hand.
She missed that kick and Spike had no problems taking his shot. They fight. It goes down… Arms swinging, rails railing..
While we don’t wanna admit it… We all know how it ends.
Spike not only leaves triumphant, he leaves with Nikki’s beloved leather coat.. becoming a forever piece of the man that Spike is.
Behind the Scenes of the Buffy The Vampire Slayer Cosplay.
This almost didn’t get done. Cosplay Sass stayed on me about it. We got up early and rode the Chicago Transit Authority line to O’Hare and waited for everyone to get off. I’m not gonna lie, my heart thudded in my chest when a worker came to clean up and her eyes met ours. I smiled, still standing in fight stance and gave her a slight thumbs up. She laughed, shook her head, and kept the door open for us.. so that when we were done.. We could get off.
Bec’s look is brought to you by their awesome cosplay skills and the Xylia belt created by SKG Designs! That’s how you seriously bring a look together.
As for me, I had all the elements of my Nikki Wood preserved for a time like that. I was so ecstatic for this but determined to stay angry looking. So, I had to do some serious fake eyebrow drawing so that my eyebrows would stay frowned. It was incredible and terrifying all at once. This was a hell of an experience. I love collaborating with Cosplay Sass so hopefully we get to do it again soon.
