*The angel in your eye whispers: That everything is starting now*

Reira has always reminded me of a Siren . Sweet voice and beautiful looks that would make most guys fall for her, but it is all these that trapped her within a cage which she can't escape from. She is a good natured girl but with extremely messed up in terms of love.
I would have loved a beach with rocky sides but that was only found after we have finished our shoot and went to recee the place a bit more. Q___________Q
*I should have hated him. I just want to destroy everything that Takumi treasures.*

Nana is one manga that I will never get sick of reading over and over again , despite it being on hiatus. Each time I read it, I feel like I've again learnt something about the character's feelings.
Reira is one character which I really disliked from the start, as she is like a spoiled princess. But as you continue reading the series, you realised that she is only acting like this because in Trapnest, and only in Trapnest, she is able to be a princess, a singing princess. It is a sanctuary that Takumi has built for her, which is probably the reason why Reira loves Takumi so much as well. Having a mother whom thinks she is a burden, I don't think she would think very much about herself, and thus when Takumi looked at her for who she is, and her good points, she fell deep in love with Takumi. That is probably also the reason why she hates Takumi so much after he married Hachiko, because that, to her, is a threat which will take away the only thing she has in her life, which she has held up with her voice. She wants to destroy everything that Takumi has because when she thinks that when Takumi has nothing, he would return to her. She crumbled after what happened to Ren, and only accepted 'Ren''s guitar because, again, it is the only place where she can sing and be kept safe. ( Trying not to spoil people who has'nt read the manga but people who did should get what I am saying here. ) While all these are not excuses for Reira to act like a spoiled princess, in the end I realise, that she is a character that is really real, just like many of the other characters in Nana, and I started to feel for her. She is really just someone who wants to protect what she has.
So much feels, MORE ON COSTUME AND MAKE UP WHEN I UP THE NEXT PICTURE!
Ahhh~ Cosmania~ Got to go to the event with hubby , and ~ Also got to cosplay with Reika on both days in a UtaPri team. *floaty* And got to meet Kaname as well. ~.~ Not only that, the whole trip was filled with awesomeness , food and laughter. Best event I have went to in a while with freaking awesome cosplay spirit. It felt like seating on a rainbow~ Some of the cosplays made me tear when I saw them, some performances made me smile from my heart and go ' this is how cosplay should be' Still having withdrawal syndrome. Q.Q I SHALL WAIT TILL AFA TILL CRAZINESS RETURN!
/ First shot up~ Woke up early to get natural morning light and it's worth it~ Had time to wander around the location and found places that would fit the shoot's theme~
Thank you to helpers and photogs who were willing to wake up early in the morning so that I can catch all these light~ And we were pretty lucky because after our shoot, and after we got settled down comfortably for breakfast, it started pouring crazily~
Pardon the missing icon and the visible snap buttons. 2nd day of STGCC, I went with who was cosplaying as Narukami~ I was very late, and by the time I reach the event hall, had found a solo Yousuke, which I found out later, belonged to the same cosplay club I was from.
What a small world the cosplay circle is, how a costume can bring cosplayers together and how simple such happiness can bring. I felt it all.
OMG this costume. OTL. The skirt part was fine and I've managed to make it neat, the blazer was a nightmare and only looked okay after I have added all the ropes and shoulder details on. Hubby had to help me check for holes and all the night before at the hotel and I think she wanted to kill me. xD xD
