In this post I'd like to talk a bit about my current costumes. Those that I already finished and those that are planned for the next three months. Naturally, I don't know if I manage to sew them all in time but we will see.
To be quote honest, not much has happened in the months after the Leipzig Book Fair. I tried to re-do my Hungary costume and try to incorporate more country style elements. I went on a total rampage with my embroidery machine and the apron for Hungary was my victim.
Furthermore, I rekindled my love for Bleach. My very first cosplay was Soi Fon and I am so happy that I was able to cosplay something from this series a second time. That it would be Shunsui of all characters was surprising though. The photo shoot with Frotto-chan
was so much fun though! Hopefully, I can show you a few more pictures sooner or later.
The week before last, I attended Dokomi, an anime- and manga convention in Dόsseldorf. On Saturday I was wearing my Cadence cosplay and this time I didn't only have a Celestia but a Luna too! Thanks Vogelbeere
for being our third princess. She didn't quite make it in time for the book fair but just look how drop-dead gorgeous she is: media.animexx.onlinewelten.com…
Dokomi was over on Sunday, but we stayed a bit longer for another shooting with the lovely e-l-y-n-n
who let us stay at her place. Thanks for that, darling! We wore our so-called Ghetto-Knights (Magic Knight Rayearth). The costumes were already finished last year but we didn't manage to have a proper photo shooting at that time.
Special mention goes to Frotto-chan
who took it upon herself to take all the pictures, despite the horrible weather.
Other than that I'm preparing for my next convention: AnimagiC. Luckily, there is still some time left before that one. So I decided to start sewing some simple costumes in between, just for fun. I also really want to finally take pictures of my Rolan Flamberge costume (from Rolan the Forgotten Kind) together with the lovely aco-rea
as Ιtoile. The costumes are finished after all and we only need a photographer.
Other than that, I am also working on the opening costume for Sakura. Unfortunately without a partner. I just want a Tomoyo so badly ):
In addition to that, Frotto-chan
and I plan to do some Durarara!! cosplays again. Shizuo and Izaya, of course. But this time we decided to do their high school uniforms. I just hope it turns out better than last time. I was rather inexperienced back then and now I'm excited to tackle this series once again. Wish me luck!
My plans for the AnimagiC include at least two new costumes: Lavi from D.Gray-man, together with my beloved Frotto-chan
as Kanda. A big thank you to all of you who participated in my DGM poll! I'm totally thrilled and can't wait to see how we'll look in those costumes. But well, there is still much work to do before that happens.
My second costume will be Juri from Revolutionary Girl Utena. I was rather insecure at first, because I didn't think Juri would look good on me but I just like her so much and I decided to just give it a try! Cute Maohheika
will be my Ruka and nothing can go wrong with such an awesome partner.
And in the summer, we already have a Karneval photo shooting planned. I can't wait for it! I will cosplay as Gareki, Frotto-chan
as Yogi and x-Ilia-x
as Nai. And with those two, our group can only rock!
Alright, that's it! I talked to much already, anyway. Which is rather unusual for me, actually.
