Saw this new blog started and thought it was such a great idea that I wanted to contribute something to it as well :)
Picture on the left is my first ever sewing project back when I started in summer 2008, my Namine dress from Kingdom Hearts :) Basic white dress made from a basic pattern, I cut up the lace trim to use for the bottom and that was falling apart and you don’t even want to see how wonky these seams are + how badly I put in the zipper! Not too mention it had horrible fit, I had still no real clue on makeup and had bad posing… Though at the time I couldn’t be more proud. I had made that dress from length of fabric, and my parents didn’t believe I could do it and I showed them I could, and that meant the world. I was hooked!
Fast forward to this April! I debuted by newest costume, ‘Prince’ Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura for Costume Con. Drafted all my patterns, made a hat from scratch, learnt new gathering and seaming techniques; plus resin casting and rhinestone embellishment! You never stop learning in cosplay :) And I’m super proud too of my work on this one.
I’m certainly pleased and proud of how far I’ve come since I’ve began~ And you should all be too, whether you’re starting out like I was in the left or you have a few years under your belt :) Never stop improving and enjoying and having fun with this, and you will get better in time <3 Never doubt~!
So because we’re amazing, my friend Olivia and I dressed as casual versions of Usagi and Minako from Sailor Moon (though mine was just an orange sundress I owned and Olivia is fantastic and made that great casual vr.) to run around the arcade in at Colossal Con last weekend~ Super fun times were had!
SO. COLOSSAL CON. YAY?
Doing final packing and adding things in as they go~
Things that are coming!
WTNV scientist (friday night), BMO dress, Merida inspired swim (Disney), Minako inspired swim (Sailor Moon), & Kuriyama Mirai (Beyond the Boundary) and other various geeky clothes (though I’m regretting my lack of kigu right now ;-;)
Should be fun! I’m excited :D
If you’re going, I hope you have a really fun con, and if not, a great weekend nonetheless <3
so yea, ColossalCon is a thing this weekend :)
I’ll be heading down early on Friday morning from T.O. since I have to attend equity training on Thursday, and driving down with Elementalsight and staying in a villa with a bunch of awesome Canadians <3
…not a clue what I’m bringing yet though, but for sure a Nightvale Scientist for the Friday night, and potentially hopefully Kuriyama Mirai in her summer uniform for the Saturday? If anything there will be swimsuits~ Though damn I wish bad I had a red ponytail wig to make/wear Anna’s swimsuit from FE:A but ah well~ for next year perhaps!
BUT ANYWAY…. I shall see people there? :)
reblaggin’ from the personal account~ No idea what’s going to happen at con BUT YAY VACATION CON nonetheless~ :D
Got my photos from my shoot with Amaleigh Photography back today!
So here’s some Krista for you :) Love this shot in particular~~
…I have zero clue for what to bring for Colossal this weekend o.o
Gosh I’m so happy with how these turned out we’re precious oh gosh
Cosplay: very serious business! Attack on Titan preview from Anime North
this is so cute and precious and makes me ridiculously happy :D
I think my favourite restaurant at the moment is a place in K.town called Sima Sushi!! :D It is delicious and I may get take-out from there too often because they might know me by face now? whoops :P
but the sushi there is so good so I regret nothing~
I am also partial to steak (or really just meat) and curry! Also lobster, mmmmmmmmm, this restaurant down the street from me too makes the best lobster rolls! :D
