Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:

In this post, I'll get into how I did each one!
Intro, and some bad old pictures
For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face?
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al

Time flew by very fast, and before we knew it...
Our first day was spent doing a lot of eating, thanks to our guide Alyssa I will justify it as us fueling up for an action-packed weekend! We tried nasi lemak for the first time (LOVED IT), had some shaved ice desserts after, then a big dinner of clay pot rice, stir-fry noodles with clams, really tasty chicken wings, etc. and THEN we still raided Pick N' Pay for our midnight snacks because we love convenience stores and we wanted to try things we don't have in Manila.
We planned our cosplays ahead with Team Kachang Puteh, the guests from Singapore. Our theme for the first day of HobbyCon was Shingeki no Kyojin!

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

Why I crossplayIt's the male to female crossplays that usually get stranger looks from the crowd. I understand why and I'm actually fine with it.Why I crossplay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked quite a lot in my years of cosplaying why I like to dress up as a girl at times. I was never able to give a definite answer back then. I suppose it was because I wasn't aware of why I did such a thing.
One reason would be that sometimes, I really just like the character's design. It's a hobby of mine to create things, and being able to materialize something I love makes me happy.
However now I believe I found the core reason of why I do it. Lately I've been delving deeper into doing more complicated costumes such as Capt. Jack Sparrow. In doing those, I realised that it's all about the transformation. Being a costume enthusiast ever since I was little, I've always found a certain joy in being able to turn myself into all sorts of characters. This carried over into my adulthood and I wanted to challenge myself even more.
There's so much prepa

Luckily, our yearly family trips to San Francisco always coincide with the Fanime weekend. I'm guessing after this I may not be able to go back for a few years so I'm bringing 2 costumes along.
Wish I could also dress up on the first day but I'm arriving on Friday night LOL!
Unfortunately, the Capcom vs SNK gathering takes place on Friday. But I'll be going as Sakura anyway on Saturday. Any of you guys know if there's a Street Fighter gathering on the 25th?
However, I was able to find a Disney gathering that will happen on Sunday! Will definitely be bringing Capt. Sparrow along for that!
I heard a lot has changed venue wise with so much construction going on so it'll definitely be an adventure going around. I'm also hoping that the line to get a badge on site won't be as bad as last year. If I do decide to get one, I'm praying I won't be in line for 4 hours again >_
Selling MORE cosplayHi friends,Selling MORE cosplay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've just too much stuff lying around, so I thought about selling again a few things I probably won't wear anymore.
If you're interested in any of them, feel free to send me a note!
SHIPPING: The shipping costs depend on where you live. They'll always be added to the cosplay's price, but of course I don't know yet how much the shipping will cost in any case. I'll keep them as low for you as possible. I ship worldwide!
SIZES: All sizes are Small / EUR: 34 / 36
PRICES: All prices are what I had to spend on the materials, nothing is added for the tailoring because I wore them before. In some cases it's even less than the material costs. Please respect the prices, I only used the best suitable fabrics so they're often not the cheapest ones. But if you want a cosplay really badly but you can only pay a little less than the price, we can talk about it. I hope that's ok for you!
