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!

“Geez, Tiff, the only time you update your blog is when you want something!”

The entire Dolly Dynamite store

I enjoy being Asian and looking like one. This online store has practically been calling out to me to buy more of its ridiculously adorable clothes and shoes! Ugh, so cute.

Classy, vintage-style clothing

When I’m not dressing up in a cute kitty sweater with a cute pair of kitty stockings, I’m typically in more a retro get-up because I love looking like a lady (sometimes I end up looking like an old lady, but whatevz).

ULTIMATE GEEK GAMER GIRL GEAR

Ok but seriously though, sometimes you don’t care about looking super fabulous and you just want to relax and wear a t-shirt and baseball cap to cover your oily hair that you haven’t washed in weeks–while representing the video games (and YouTube channel) you love.

And more things! >_<

Here are a few more random things that don’t quite fit the categories above…


Hologram top and skirt: I’m not quite entirely sure where I would wear this too, but I do know that I need a hologram outfit.

Kitty Anatomy: Jason Freeny is an incredible artist that tends to make really beautiful figurines that suits my twisted taste.

The cutest glasses ever: This is made by SEE Eyewear, my #1 favorite brand for glasses. I really want the first frame on the left!

Fancy running shoes: My current Nike shoes are ripped up and has holes in them. I must upgrade to a fancy running shoe. It’s the only way.

The most amazing sunglasses ever: There are no words for me to describe how much I adore these sparking shades.

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?
