Thusday, 24th May:
I arrived at the Airport in the afternoon and the organization team picked me up from there . The hotel room was directly next to the con. It was still some time till Elffi's plane would arrive, so Christian (organization team member) and I took a walk in a nearby park. I got so distracted by wild DOGS, BIRDS and CATS everywhere *-*! I could pet a cute wild kitty <3 awww~~
The we went to the airport to pick up Elffi. We were standing there pretty long and I got bored and annoyed XD;....so the first thing I did after he came out of the baggage claim room, was kicking his leg and asking why the hell that took so long ;O;~~~
We haven't seen each other since WCS, so that really heartwarming kick was the nicest greeting I could get in mind *LOL*.

Image in cosplayHey everyone~Image in cosplay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
How ya'll been? So recently as you know I've been on a bit of a health kick. Yeah... I slightly broke it (for a month omg) XD But what has my health kick got to do with the topic of this journal? WELL! I was thinking about it today and I've seen so many comments on cosplayer's photos over the years that make me quite upset to see. There are comments like "you're fat", "you're boobs are too small" or "you're ugly". Or even the opposite of "you're too thin", "you're boobs are too big and saggy" or "your face doesn't suit this character". So as you can tell it'll be rather ranty so if you don't wanna read that's ok XD
When I first started cosplaying I got this a couple of times and yes, it hurts. It upsets me to see that people go out of their way to make someone feel bad for all the hard work they've put into a costume. So what image does everyone expect to see when cosplayers' cosplay? They expect them to look exactly like this character they're cosplaying, right? Well

I passed the time of the long line by playing Pokemon White!
:iconozthenekomaster: and I revealed our original Daughter/Servant of Evil cosplays!
I always thought the boa look made Rin look more devious. It was my first time making a corset and a hoop skirt. I need to fix some things. The ruffles on the bottom bother me and are kind of uneven. Maybe I'll add more black ruffles or lace ruffles. I don't know yet. The "fancy" designs were done with gold puffy paint!
I need the make a thicker petticoat for next time...

On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a
