Had a wonderful trip up to Cameron highlands with Jing, Jas and Fritz~ Went to strawberry farms, cactus farms, stuffed our faces with hotpot and did shoots. Happy to have a good location to shoot this since I think it'll be my last Myobi ever, getting way too old to cosplay as her now No more loli left in me *sighs*.
ahaha...finally got my lazy ass out of the house to do a shoot...was really scared we wouldn't be able to shoot because it kept threatening to rain on us...but thankfully it didn't >.<
Big shout-out to helpers and photos for braving the bad weather to help us to do this shoot and much love to my amazing partner who took up the challenge of making this D: costume so I could have a bishie bishie syaoran and not be forever alone
It's been a long time since I've shot with kiri~ think we've both levelled up massively since then <3 <3 <3 feel so shiawase in this photo ohohohohohoho
Wanna write a little about the dress construction :3 I'm a bigger Cagalli than Lacus fangirl, but I really loved this outfit from Lacus~ I've had quite a few friends make this dress, and I looked around to see how other people did it online. I ended up sewing wire into the entire hem of the skirt to allow it to stand by itself and so I could have the folds hold because of the strange way this outfit just seems to support itself. Super painful project, that and the arm sash is entirely wired to make it stand, with bits of boning in between to keep it up~ Had an army of people help me with cutting glitter fabric and sticking it to form the patterns on the edge of the gown, and stuck about 100+ pieces of plastic jewels all over the costume for the added bling. All in all I think it took about.....40+ hrs of construction but it's one of the costumes I've made that I feel super good about
Big thank you to for the Microphone (he's taking prop 3-D printing prop commissions now!)
Shinji for wings help and tailor auntie for making me the top :3
*_* THIS. HAS BEEN ON MY TO-COS LIST. FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS AND x 1000000 YEARS. I'm a huge Clamp fan and this was my favorite of all the Clamp series. I read the first 2 volumes back in primary school and only managed to get ahold of the last 2 volumes in secondary school and I still remember how badly I wept at the end of book 2. ALL MY FEELS. This year, I decided that I was getting old enough and that my costume making skills were finally at a level where I could attempt to make this and it happened~ Fast reaching the end of my cosplay dream list!
FINALLY A NEW COSTUME SINCE COSFEST <3 Well...techncially not quite since someone else made this >.<
Love this shot *_* Syaoran kun looks really manry here <3 <3 <3
Gorgeous Sakura gown made by I fixed it up and blinged it for the ICDS competition and my tailor auntie helped me take it in so it would fit.
It was so wonderful to wear *_* I felt so huge next to my handsome syaoran kun though OTL. And really getting too old for Sakura....was joking backstage that I should be Ka-kura, Sakura's Ka-san Q.Q. Thank you everyone for supporting me and not laughing at my shitty skit when I was on stage Got 1st prize in the cosplay comp with this costume <3
AND I GOT TO MEET AGAIN. Will leave that all for another spazzing post
Finally got a reshoot for this dress, it's been rotting in my wardrobe for so long Thank you Shiro, Kosmo and Hoshiki for allowing yourselves to be dragged out to Sentosa for the photos Was hoping for a sunset shoot, but unfortunately every time I try to get a shoot done for this outfit, something will go wrong OTL Had gray clouds and overcast skies but somehow the amazing Shiro managed to produce awesome photos. On the bright side, at least it didn't rain on us.
Costume is for sale now, PM me if you're interested
