Here they come

August 7th, 2011 (12:07 pm)

Oh man..I haven't updated since Otakon but I haven't really had much to say. I could rant about work because they did something REALLY stupid this weekend but I might save that for later.

My photoshoots are starting to come in. I did several over the weekend of Otakon and the one I was probably most excited for was the Togainu no Chi group I had. Lionboogy posted the pictures and I am so happy ^___^


I was Shiki obviously, 4ng31 was Kau, Umi-kun was Akira and her two friends were Arbitro and Rin. I wish we could have gotten more pictures together then just the shoot but hopefully we can all get together again soon for another round of TnC manly times.

We all look so cool!

Also, I'm finding pictures of Ravage everywhere and some are really awesome shots. I can't wait to wear it again. It suffered some damage on the ride home and also while it was being worn so I have a lot of repair to do and I might upgrade it. I'm considering covering the whole thing with gesso and re-painting it. Oh man..another 14 cans of spray paint. but we'll see.

I have also added 2 costumes to my nekocon list.

Kotetsu from Tiger and Bunny
Rin from Ao No Exorcist

both will be fairly easy to assemble and I already have Kotetsu's shirt I believe. It is going to be sooo much fun. I already have a Shiemi for Rin and a friend is doing Blue Rose to go with Kotetsu. Plus I have convinced kousuke_no_baka to be my Bunny >D Oh yes..nekocon is going to be fun.

It has been a long time since I have marathoned anime like I have been doing this week. Last week it was Ao No Exorcist and Tiger and Bunny. Week before that was Durarara!! Now I'm trying to catch up on Naruto (which I was 200 episodes behind in). And I know the icon isn't terribly fitting other then the fact it is Naruto and it probably is one of my favorite cosplay pictures of us in those costumes. Anyway..onward.


I think the reason I stopped watching Naruto is because there just wasn't enough Sasuke and Itachi airtime. Now that they are back as a main part of the plot..I find it a lot more interesting again LOL.

As far as the other shows..

Durarara!! Really enjoyed it. Love the characters. Plot was really interesting and it was fun. Planning on a Shinra cosplay in the very near future. Already have the lab coat.

Ao no Exorcist. Adore Rin. Very interesting story and although some of the characters annoy me, I am completely drawn in.

Tiger and Bunny. LOVE Wild Tiger. LOVE LOVE LOVE. He cracks me up.

Its so rare for me to talk about actual anime XD But there you go. Thats enough for now..just wanted to get that little Naruto rant or whatever you want to call it off my chest LOL

Day 30: Cosplay Meme

July 22nd, 2011 (09:48 pm)

Wow..I actually did it. I did a 30 day meme every day. Did not miss a day. I am so proud of myself XD Might even do the anime one that Fuuma is doing as my next one. But might hold off until after Otakon since I would miss three days with that.

I am so super excited about Otakon. I have not been this excited about an otakon in..I don't even remember when. For several reasons but there are 2 main ones.

1. Ravage. Hell yes.

2. Togainu no Chi. 4ng31 has agreed to meet up with me in his Kau outfit for pictures. *happy flailing times* This made me so excited.

I'm going to have a pretty busy weekend but I'm hoping it will be good overall. I'm hoping I can convince someone to be my handler on Friday since I am desperately going to need help.

I'm ready. Only a few little things to do and I will be able to just pack and sit back and relax.

30. Describe cosplay in three words. No more, no less.

Fun pretendy times.

Day 29: Cosplay Meme

29. What is your favourite cosplay item? (eg. a pair of shoes, a wig)

I know that most would probably say the Fai staff and you'd probably be right. That was my first actual prop that I ever made. A lot of the time when I need swords and things my father makes it and then I just paint it. But I actually have made this prop and evolved this prop into what it is. And it keeps evolving. I just added lights to it for Otakon. I probably won't leave them in there but its a good test.

But I think another thing that ranks right up there would have to be my Sakura staff.

It was fun to make, its fun and light to carry and it is instantly recognizable. Its kind of cute too XD So those would be my two favorite cosplay items.

27. How many wigs do you own? Which is your favorite?

Um..Give me a minute. Gonna have to count. *goes a hunting*

I couldn't really get them all counted but I have 60+ wigs.

I can't really pick a top favorite because honestly..all wigs kind of drive me crazy XD But a few of my favorites would have to be the Kougaiji wig because it is a fun color and just fun to wear, the Elizabeth and Alexiel wigs because people seem to think they look very natural and pretty on me XD, My Sakura wig and my Mukuro wig. I can wear any of those pretty much an entire weekend and not get sick of them. LOL

26. Any unfinished costumes? Will you ever finish them?
I typically finish what I start but there are 3 costumes that I have bought fabric for and have never actually gotten either started or finished.

-a ball joined doll one that I was going to do with Corey (her idea obviously XD). This was supposed to be for Dragoncon a few years ago but it never happened. I bought about $100 worth of material and cut it all into strips and did all the beading (which I still have in a box)..only to find out they weren't happening. So I still have most of the fabric since it is fairly unusable strips. But I did manage to use one of the iridescent ones for Tamaki ballgown's bow.

-Adult Syaoran from Tsubasa. Another Corey project. She was going to do adult Sakura so I went ahead and bought all the material for the base outfit and started to cut it out. Well I guess we both ran out of time because it never happened. I think I used the fabric for something else but it could just be in a bag in the bottom of my closet.

-Tybalt from Romeo x Juleit. I still intend to do this costume. I have the fabric. Its cut out. I just need to sew it together and get a wig. It will happen. Maybe even this year if I can find half a moment to work on it.

I really think that is about it though for unfinished. I mean there are costumes I have rushed and will maybe eventually go back and fix up..but they were 'finished' enough to wear.

Day 25: Cosplay Meme

Otakon to-do list:
-add beading to Elizabeth's dress and sew piece back on
-Fix Shiki necklace
-print reference images/release forms/press info
-Ferio pants - remake or fix up
-find Ferio long sleeve shirt

At the beginning of the month I figured I would be scrambling at the end to finish. Hard to believe I'm going to finish in time and won't have to worry about too much.

25. The cosplay you put the most effort into

I would definitely have to say the Fai coat falls into this category. So many hours went into it and it was just back breaking at times to paint and sew. Cain would probably be the number one though since I was teaching myself so many different techniques. I used resin for the first time so I spent time creating crosses and clasps out of model magic and sculpy, then spent the time to create the molds and then pouring the resin. There are a lot of little clasp things on the coat that I had to do one at a time and then had to do a front and back to so that was very time consuming. Then there was learning to use wonderflex and figuring out what shapes to make the fingers and the armor in order to get it to look the way I wanted it to. And there were was the weeks I spent in the barn creating the pully system for the wing and then gluing feathers. Cain was definitely a labor of love and I still consider remaking it and starting over since it was a costume I did before I was really ready to tackle a project like that. And then I think about how much effort that would take and it makes me want to fall over LOL.

And then there is my current project which shall not be named that i have spent countless hours cutting, planning, gluing, reworking, painting, and just generally scratching my head over going..."how in the hell am I going to make that work?"
