Waking up at 4 in the morning to get ready for this shoot and changing into most of my costume by the side of the road was totally worth it . The forest is so beautiful at this time of day, and I feel I miss the sunrise far too often. Oh who am I kidding. I love sleeping in.

I had an AMAZING time in Sweden with *CaptainImaginary and ~Cecelin0. Stockholm is somewhere I just never thought I'd go, so the experience was definitely sweet. Charlie and I also were able to do a couple photoshoots including this one!! By the time I had got to London, the Official Doctor Who tumblr had actually featured our cosplays for Wholloween! Pretty surreal. Never thought I'd see the day, even if it was just a derp photo (--> luxlaterna.tumblr.com/post/648… )
ah f*** it. I'm posting this on here. I'm going to Europe in 2 weeks!!!! Cosplaying with *FahrSindram and *CaptainImaginary and getting to hang out with other amazing people overseas.
I'll be bringing a few cosplays, and Tony will be one of them. Pretty darn stoked and half!!! I'll be posting vids and pics of my journey on both my tumblr, and new fb page! -> facebook.com/luxlaterna , so stay tuned!! Also because a bunch of people have been asking me, I'll also be doing a beard/ facial hair video tutorial while I'm over there
Cosplay: as Link and as Zelda (The legend of Zelda -Skyward Sword) Photo and Edit: ♥ Taken at Bremen, Germany.
I really enjoyed Skyward Sword. It's most likely my favourite Zelda ever, even better than OoT. Haha. So I had to finally cosplay as Zelda with Resa as Link. Link is such a jerk but I like how they really are a couple in SS. I really love the photos Doku took of us. At Connichi I looked like shit and I was really upset because I put my heart into this costume. But she took great photos of us the week after the con. ♥
Well hey all! I'm back from Europe!!! I had the pleasure of cosplaying with some epic people, but that's a long story of adventures. I brought Steve to Berlin to cosplay with *FahrSindram and here he is I'm still unhappy with the stars, but this is actually my last time I will wear Steve. It's been a pleasure cosplaying him, but it's time to move on to conquer other challenges. However, Captain America will continue to remain my hero. As always.
I love this shot of my original Navi (from Zelda: Ocarina of Time) cosplay taken at PAX Prime 2013 - why? Cause you can actually SEE THE LIGHTS IN MY SKIRT! This was my first time ever working with lights and I chose fiber optics (cause they're low heat and I felt like I could spread them out better for an all over glow). They work... they just aren't very bright... but you can actually see them in this photo!
Since many people want to know about the costume or acessories, there are some general questions I already answered here below:
Hair or wig? - It's a wig
Where did you get it? - Many years ago in my hometown (Manaus - Brazil) in a costume/carnaval store. It was a very special deal! Back then I didn't know how to buy things via internet.
How did you make your sword and shield? Are they heavy? They are very light and fragile, so I keep taking good care and maintance. The shield is made basically of paperboard, glue, paint and love. Sword's base is wood.
Where did you buy your elf ears? I made it by myself using latex.
So ~theMightyHeart and I have been wanting to cosplay together for the longest time now, so first up, Cas and Dean! (bwaaa I love them XD). Totally worth waking up at 4 am for a 3.5 hour drive.. and getting lost. It was a lot of fun! Additional thanks to *Weatherstone for waking up at 8:30.... So this show is actually filmed in Vancouver where I live.. and ironically in the studio right beside where I work. It's a lot of fun putting two and two together when watching the show. I'm hoping to make wings for Cas in the future... soon... ma dreaaammmss.....
