Well, I figured I ought to update this journal space since I havent sone so in well over a year...ORZ.
I've been feeling incredibly guilty about the fact that I've not actually done any arty stuff in such a long time. I REALLY need to try and get back into that with some doodles or something. It just seems that the majority of my spare time is filled with costume-making.
Speaking of which, maybe an update on cosplays worn and working-on is required?
Looking back to my previous post, I see that a few of my intentions never came to fruition but on the whole I achieved pretty much all that I set out to do, and more. XD
Added to my cosplay roster is Kotetsu T. Kaburagi and Ivan Karelin from Tiger & Bunny. I'm also working on Origami Cyclone (as in the hero suit) for an undecided event. It was due to be worn for Kita (Last weekend, April 13th) but it was nowhere NEAR ready. T^T Cracking on!
From Sengoku Basara I have Ranmaru and MASAMUNE SAMAAAA~ who I was sceptical about doing when I wrote the previous post; I just didn't think it would ever actually happen. But it has! TWICE! Whoop~~
I had a couple of fairly easy/casual cosplays in the form of Masaomi Kida from Durarara, and Nizuma Eiji from Bakuman. LOL I say 'casual'...despite wearing pyjamas Eiji was anything but casual! Dat wig! XD;
Also now have Rin Okumura from Ao No Exorcist, who was fun to be. Bratty with an adorable tail, what's not to love? X3
Final Fantasy played a big role in my cosplaying endeavours. I now have Zidane Tribal (Dissidia version) from 9, Hope Estheim from 13, Rikku from 10 and an evening wear version of Selphie from 8, which was worn to the FF DISTANT WORLDS concert in London!! *___* SUCH A WONDERFUL EVENING OF JOY AND TEARS AND JOY and random otakus approaching our girly 8 group and stuttering about being 'beautiful' LOL! AND JOY! XDD
Zidane is one of those costumes that I can see me wanting to wear several times before retiring it since I'm pretty pleased with how he turned out. Hope will need to be worn again this year as we have a couple more friends joining us for a bigger group someday. I'd like to do our 10 group again, too! I was so proud of all my friends and their outfits! I certainly felt like the weakest link, there. XD;;
I haven't gotten round to doing any more England and I can't see it happening for a long time now. The fandom has started to die down it seems, so maybe when it becomes a nostalgic memory I'll release Iggy from the vault once more. XD Also still haven't worn Jacuzzi. T___T
Plans for Hakuoki Shinsengumi have changed. I've plumped for a more suitable character for me so i'll be working on Todo Heisuke instead. X3 SO EXCITED! The big plan is to take the Shinsengumi outfits to Japan with us...! (I also plan on taking Ivan to wear at the summer Comiket since I figured I could play the gaijin card pretty well with him XD).
Also gotten into the shallow and silly sexiness that is Uta No Prince Sama, so hopefully will have a couple of variation of Syo Kurusu this year, too. *Is totally type-cast* ^___<
OH and how could I forget Adventure Time?! Haha, i know it's become a bit over-done but my friends and I couldn't resist and I'll now be attempting a Jake the dog outfit......for May Expo.....in around 30 days......HOLY CRUD!
I NEED TO GET TO WORK!
