Archive for the ‘Cosplay: The Ultimate Hobby’ Category

Last month, I did my first ever cosplay photoshoot with Tom Hicks! Thought I’d share some of these awesome photos with guys. I was very limited in posing so I hope these photos don’t appear too stagnant. Though I think the quality of these photos with the awesome background, lighting and fire (FIRE!) really makes up for the lack of variety in poses.

Cosplay is now such a big part of my life, heck, it’s in a way, my fill-time job (not as a cosplayer but working for a cosplay retailer). Most of my hobbies come and go, but this one has stayed with me since 2009.

I’m looking forward to starting on new costumes for the new year. I hope to step out of my comfort zone and start sewing because I reeeeeally want to use more fabric!

Ah, such a poor neglected blog I have. If I give my layout a little face lift it will probably motivate me to update more often. It’s just so dang hard sometimes when you have all these hoppin’ social networking sites calling your name! But I will try to keep this baby going. Never gonna give up, never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around and desert you. That is my promise-ish.

Anyhoo. Remember that costume I said I was working on? Well I managed to finish it just in time for BlizzCon! I made the entire armor set and the big ass sword. I plan to do an official photoshoot for my costume, but for now, here are some of the pictures Iv’e found on the internet, taken at the convention:

Until next time. In the meantime, follow my Instagram, ya?

Woo, we have a lot of catching up to do. I hate neglecting my blog like this because then I’d have to try to cram everything into one entry. Ew, messy! But this is what happens when you take up a lot of hobbies and you have a cool job that sends you to different states for conventions every other week. Last July, I worked at two local-ish conventions.

The first convention was Anime Expo, let me show you some pictures!

Next, was the usual San Diego Comic-Con. Luckily, I had the weekend off so I was able to dress up in the costume I made and watch cool panels.

Last Feburary (damn that was long ago), I made you guys guess which character I was going to cosplay in this image:

Untitled-3

Now can you guess which one I ended up picking? ;)

Here I am in my Gloomy Bear kigurumi, which I bought at Anime Expo and decided to wear for SDCC.

Dammnit, I love bears. Hmmm…sounds like somebody needs to update their layout/header again, amirite?

For this month of August, I am flying out to two other conventions. Hopefully, I will be better at updating them separately instead of cramming them all into one entry.

Until next time, I miss my blogger friends!
