I am a married woman with a kid and a full-time job, thus I don't have that much time for the cosplay, especially since I sew and craft most of my costumes. That is the main reason I have such a short list of finished costumes, though I always have a huge list of wanted cosplays-to-do.

Most of the project now includes fencing and stunt fighting and, by extension, my partner - ErikDesler, and thus most of our paired cosplay includes some kind of weaponry (mostly steel swords) and now open-handed combat and stunts as well. Our cosplay and fencing duet named Sword Art OFFline.

For better or worse, I fail to appear on DA on semi-regular basis. So you can find me here:

I forgot to update this journal. So, lets try make it quick.
Essentially, after we won CICAF preliminaries on Hinode 2015 with Tekken we were lazing a little bit :)
WCS/CICAF Russian preliminaries - WIN!This year once again we took part in Russian WCS/CICAF preliminaries. Well, it was the 1st year for CICAF, and 4th for WCS, but still (we participated in 2013 and 2014, took 2nd and 3rd places accordingly). There was even greater competition this year, but also two Awards of Invitation, for WCS 2015 and for CICAF 2016. And we won award of invitation for CICAF, so now we are considered CICAF 2016 Team Russia - first ever to my knowledge ^_^
We participated with Tekken 6 stunt fighting skit and at last we managed to make everything right! I loved Asuka and wanted to make her for several years, though only after our fail on WCS preliminaries 2014 (3rd place due to not-quite-our-best performance in full-plate Soulk Calibur IV armor) we decided to make next year's performance based on stunt fighting and not fencing. My partner ErikDesler selected 2 characters originally, but we decided to make Lars' costume because it's so cool :) Well, when we finished making it (yeah, as usual -

So. We just participated in a couple of conventions as a jury members + we made costumes and short fencing skits just for that. Thus we participated in Panikon! and selected Russian representative for EuroCosplay 2015? who then actually won EuroCosplay finals. MrsGnob is GREAT and she's making such beautiful dresses. I love them every time. And she's so nice! *___*

We also had a photoshoot in our old costumes, and WE LOVED IT! Some photos Soul Calibur IV and ROLW new photoshoots:

Also we re-made our Soul Calibur V costumes AND we had a photoshoot at last! And we won yet another 1st place :) I forgot to upload other photos, they are on our FB and VK pages.

And, last but not the least in the beginning of 2016 we won 2nd place on J-fest with other re-made costumes - Opera! old and new versions:

Mainly I added white lace on the bottom of the skirt, it was meant to be there from the beginning, but I had no time and lace when I first finished the dress for the scene. And I added volume to my flower head :) Now it matches art perfectly too.

And now! We plan to participate in Hinode 2016 tomorrow with our new Super Mario Bros. costumes, and next week we are going to China for CICAF China Cosplay Super Show as Team Russia n our new Dynasty Warriors 8 costumes! So, wait for it and wish us luck!

My partner ErikDesler selected 2 characters originally, but we decided to make Lars' costume because it's so cool :) Well, when we finished making it (yeah, as usual - both costumes made from scratch by the two of us) it's weight was 20+ kg and we were not sure how much of the intended moves will be hindered by it (answer is: 2 moves. We got rid of one move by ending the skit the other way, and made sure we'll make second on stage). But still! Perfect Lars, IMHO :) 

Please watch our video, it's worth your while, I promise - it turned out rather funny :)
