Hey everyone *_*~
Winter is rainy and nasty here in my corner of Germany, but I have some nice news
I'll be at Japan Weekend Madrid in Spain from 9th - 10th February
together with =Elffi
and another friend of mine and great cosplayer who I may not announce yet ;D
I'm really really excited to see some of my Spanish friends again <3 as well as meeting new people
! So don't be shy, just come over to say "Hi~" to us
We already decided our costumes for Saturday:
me as Archbishop and Elffi as Shura from Ragnarok~
costumes for Sunday: TBA ;D
Well so if you guys feel like wanting to join us with some Ragnarok costumes to make some pictures with us, please feel free to do that!!!
And I sewed a bit! Here some pictures of my costume for Rea from Sankarea
Currently I'm sewing on my costumes for Neko and Hakufu (both nearly finished. Pictures will be posted on my facebook page in a few days ^___^!)
EDIT (22th December)
Here a picture of my finished Hakufu costume!
I just finished a new costume. I did a complete remake of my Hakufu Sonsaku (Ikkitousen) cosplay!
It is a very easy costume, but I also wanted to gave as much effort into this as possible. So this time, I ironed on the dark red stripes and then stitched the edges with the satin stitch. The white likes are completely embroidered! When unfolded, the skirt is 3m long. It took me 18h to make only the skirt.
What I want to show you: Also when you have no money or time to make big, detailed ball gowns or badass, massive armors, you can also proof your sewing ability on 'smaller' costumes! Also on simple stuff like this school uniform, you can proof that you work really neat and clean. Don't be sad that people would think you are not a good cosplayer coz you cannot effort something bigger. Every costume can be something special and a challenge, when you have some great ideas!
