Being In A Slump


So yes, this year I didn’t had a cosplay as… for whatever reason I felt like not doing one.
Could be also because I play alot FFXIV and if not that Skylanders.

That will change soon also as I am back on Kyudo next week, woop.
And I found some things (2-3) that I really like to wear.
Next problem is money 😀 as usual. As I want to do some things next year (not only cosplay-wise but also traveling/visiting friends) it will be kinda tough of a budget.

Hrrrrrrrrrr. But for now I’ll try to figure out what and how to do things so that I can realize what I am up to soon 🙂
Stay tuned 😀


Cosplay “Kagamine Rin”

Cosplay Cosplay: Kagamine Rin (Prject Diva F costume: “Rain”)

Material: Stretch Gabardine, Cotton, Wire
Convention: Anime Con 2014, Connichi 2014

I do not like the character itself but she had some cool song in this game and when I saw the outfit… I was done for 😀
And I was on stage with this cos~ it was awkward because I messed my steps up but shit happens.
Anyways I was really flashed that the awesome Cosplayer (and judge) Yeugene said she wants to cosplay Rin in that outfit too – it was like: Oh my goooooosh, really~?! I will totally look forward to see her in that cos~

I wore that one twice. Regrettably not many pictures around – especially not the ones that were taken by Berry-chan as something went wrong with the SD card. Gonna see if I’ll wear it again (need to definitely remake the shoe thingies as the yellow straps fell off all the time even with double-sided tape)

Anime Con 2014

It was sooooooo busy. And I was Kagamine Rin (Project Diva F costume “Rain”)

I prolly will think twice before I agree to take part in a cosplay competition again haha 🙂 although the whole thing was well organized with rehearsal, judging, meeting before it starts etc etc etc but it was really tiring to watch the time when not being backstage.
Haaaah~ and I’m kind of happy it was over after I messed up quite badly with the performance.

But what I really loved: Judge Reika wore a cosplay from Tales of the Abyss – Jade Curtis *___* and Judge Yeugene was really happy about my cosplay choice and she will do it too someday. Awesome~

It was such a great day to cosplay – not too hot or cold and although all time in the convention area it was quite nice (if you don’t count the amount of sweat I sweated out for reason of being nervous all the time).
Soooooo. In the end I had lots of fun, lots of nervousness and I am feeling really tired the day after. Like my body planned on keeping all the muscle pain for the day after the convention…. argh~ 😛

Cosplay “Legretta the Quick”

Cosplay: Legretta the Quick

Cosplay: Legretta the Quick/ Regret (Tales of the Abyss)
Photo by: a friend of mine with my camera
Material: Stretch Gabardine, Foam Rubber
Convention: Abunai! 2013, Connichi 2013

I love her. Really. Simple. Love.

It was really fun to wear the outfit half-finished at the Abunai! in Veldhoven but wearing it complete at the Connichi was cool.

*** I just forgot to push it online earlier as I hoped for a better picture with less busy background but well~ sorry, thought this post was up earlier 😦 ***

Sample Disappointment

First time I ordered some fabrics samples in the Netherlands… probably last time.
I’d say price equals quality?

Sample Disappointment

Sadly it really did not turn out to be nice fabrics 😦 I now wait for my samples from Germany in hope they are better… and maybe I’m going to check out the fabrics shop in the city center next week or so.


Abunai! Con

To be honest… this was the first con I was completely thrown off…

The location was the NH Koningshof in Veldhoven. I went there with 2 of my friends I met some months ago :3 The location itself was really nice (especially the garden) but I felt the organization was a mess.
I was wearing my half-finished Legretta (Tales of the Abyss) and one person recognized me 😀 more than expected to be honest – but my shoes were killing me so I went as normal person after 3 hours (I really need to train on these boots -_-) – of course after we took some pictures (which I will post after my other convention in 3 weeks).

So first we went to the cloak room to drop off the backpack and stuff we did not want to carry around, after we stopped at the Dealer Room and found our way to the Taiyaki stand (while listening to horrible singers at Karaoke while waiting) and bought some delicious treats 🙂

After that we had lunch (in my case: fries with Sisi orange) and wanted to check out the Games room… but we could not enter because of my bag… so we went all the way back to the cloak room and back to the Games room… where a discussion about the camera bag of my friends started. Seriously.
We went to make another round at the Dealers room and I bough a cute small giraffe plushie.
After dinner we tried our luck with karaoke as one of my friends really wanted to sing but the waiting list was a bit too long for us, so we left.

Cosplay-wise I never saw so many eBay cosplays at a convention…
I saw 20 Sword Art Online costumes and 25 Shingeki no Kyoujin cosplays, 3 Lukas, 5 Mikus … all with the very same eBay cosplay.
Kinda sad 😦
Only a few people had selfmade cosplays (and really nice ones too) but most of the time: *brr* (AKA eBay) feeling.
