ShutoCon Is This Weekend!!!!

Its about that time again! Updates for another con~ woo!
Next weekend is Shutocon in Lansing Michigan and will be my first time going.
I really look forward to attending this con because its a much smaller con but I want to help it become better/bigger any way I can by participating. I want it to become Michigans' Momocon; in a sense.

I didn't PLAN on making any difficult cosplays for this..but then I kind of did...
I said I was going to cosplay Rainy Devil from Bakemonogatari because I felt it would be easy and comfy enough to wear at a smaller convention.

However, the shoes have taken me 4 days of work. (Not consistent since I work most of the say) But I am now finished with the shoes. The paw took me maybe a whole evening to make (excluding painting) and the rest is all bought. Tomorrow I will be working on the light-up eyes for the mask. 


Here are some progress photos~


(also the wig was just for fun but I may use it for normal Kanbaru later)
 I may actually get a new Kanbaru wig because this one was pretty cheap and messed up.
When i got it, there was a huge chunk of weft falling out but I sewed it back in.


Its all good now!!



I didnt get a picture of my shoes before they were painted but they were originally black and silver. I painted them and covered parts in foamies. I really like them but hope they dont fall apart during the con



(midway progress)

(all finished!)


I look forward to seeing all my friends at the con as well.
I hope I have time to do some shoots for my other cosplays too!
Here is my schedule!






I hope everyone had a good Easter as well. I have so much candy; im pretty sure it'll last me till Halloween haha. I got to decorate cookies with my Grandma and Aunt. I thought mine were pretty freakin kawaii 


 


I also got my photos back from my Kobato shoot back in October~
Most of them are on my Deviantart so please check them out!




I would also like to say shout outs to my friend Kora back at home! She sent me a pretty awesome Super Sonico care package which I almost cried over. My Super Sonico collection has become very dear to me since my friends contribute so much! Thank you so much everyone, really. I cant thank you enough <333




Thank you all for reading! Hope to see some of you at SHOTACON!

Back from Katsu, Ready for Shuto!

So I really haven't updated in a really long time..I mean, Katsucon was a month ago so Im very very sorry!
I just recently got a job at a local billing office and its been pretty great!
(Got my second paycheck today! woo! )

I had such an amazing time at Katsucon and it is definitely worth going back to. My Idolm@ster Shiny Festa cosplay took most priority so my other cosplay wasn't super fancy but I still has a great time and got a lot of photos from the con!

On Friday, me and my beautiful im@s babies went out and shoot some photos together. This is the biggest group ive ever been a part of. All the hard work really paid off in the end and we all had an amazing time. It was so great getting to know all the girls and unity is just a beautiful thing in my opinion (Im always bawling at unity in idol concerts ;//u//; ) 

Anyways!!! We didn't have as much time to practice together for the dances even though I felt pretty ready personally. Its very different when you are practicing alone and practicing around other people. Im usually used to dancing with only one or two other people. Later on that night, me and a few of the other girls got together and played Shiny Festa. I really loved it and wish i preordered it because GUUUUH I LOVE RHYTHM GAMES!!!!

I think with any mistakes we made in this group (for example, lack of more photoshoots, pose practice together (Its hard to organize quick poses with 12 girls @@; ), and extra time for dance practice) We will definitely improve for next year! I loved all our ladies and cant wait to see more outfits from us together and any other im@s cosplay in general (Series definitely needs more love)








ee! ee! Oooh!!

Speaking of more love, Cinderella Girls really needs more. I promise you no one knew I was cosplaying Anzu Futaba on Saturday. But im okay with that! (Im used to not getting recognized in my cosplays but I still love being those characters so much so its cool!) I felt pretty NEET mode the whole time. (Almost fell asleep in the hotel room before the shoot) The shoot with MinhP was pretty simple too (not really) "Look Tired" with out looking dead is a little hard to do. MinhP also later got into his Kirari cosplay and we became a badass Idol duo! But I really looooove my pictures and cant wait to do more Anzu outfits! (Loving that "Graduation outfit" lololol)





On Saturday night, I changed into my Haku Yowane cosplay since this cosplay has hardly gotten any air. I made it for Momocon last year but only wore it in the evening. (I see a trend..)
I just goofed around in it for fun and took some photos with a friend that I later edited a little~


Overall again, Katsu was amazing and im going again next year with bigger and better cosplays! YOSH!!!


~~~

As for my next convention, I think I am spur-of-the-moment attending Shutocon! Ive always wanted to go to Shuto since its kinda tiny and I want them to have my money and a large attendance so that they can grow and get better. Youmacon is kind of the only big con in Michigan (JFax doesn't count. JFax is a joke) and I really want Shutocon to become the next Momocon!

I was working on a mock-up of Makoto Kikuchis Floral but I put that aside for now since I wouldn't have it done in time for Shuto. Besides, I really wanted to do a few of my more simple cosplays for Shuto just to test the waters. Right now im working on Kanbaru (Rainy Devil ver.) probably for Friday night. Then I will probably re-wear my Makoto Shiny Festa outfit and also bring out my Rough School Time cosplay too!


I really hope I can get it all done nicely before Shuto since I am so busy with work in the week! I already ordered my wig and money paw (which I will alter a lot)

Anyways, Thank you for reading and I cant wait to see any of you at Shota ShutoCon!!!

Its been awhile!

Hello! Hello! Hello!Sure has been awhile! I was really busy recently with moving back up to Michigan. It took a couple weeks to get all settled and such. (Half of my stuff is still packed away 。゚(゚´Д`゚)゚。 ) BUT WITHIN TIME!
I've also been SUPER busy with preparing a cosplay for Katsucon 2013. I've never been before but im sure it'll be really fun and so great for photoshoots!!I am a part of a large idolm@ster group and we actually have all 13 members!We are doing the outfits from the newest game "Shiny Festa"


(Speaking of idolm@ster, I recently played it on the ps3 and it was super fun! 
I hardly know what im doing but that kind of makes it more fun! My group consists
of Makoto, Miki, and Chihaya. Our group name is "SexSW@G". Dealwithit. )

Here is my Makoto wig, styled and finished!


I am really excited and we've all been working really hard together! 
In the mean time, I will probably pull out a lazy cosplay for some of the other days..

like Anzu Futaba..


and maybe rewear one of my Touhou outfits. Who knows~ (Any suggestions???)
Im kind of just going for nice presentable cosplays but with a little flair (since it is Katsu)

~ ~ ~

My new years was also really nice! Me and my boyfriend went to a friends party and had an awesome time!
Since I recently moved, Ive also been trying to dress more "girly".
I dont know why, I think its because I am trying to look presentable for jobs.

Here is what I wore on New Years!! 



Not too much has been going on except being so busy. So im afraid this will be a short post (ー.ー゛)
Please forgive me. Hopefully I will have more interesting things to post about later~
Thanks for reading! <3
