Cosfest 2012 owari~~~~ (Part 2)

The last of the picspam!Collapse )
And that's the end of the picspam! I actually have a lot more pics but thought I should only pick a few of the better ones to showcase, otherwise I'll totally crash my website where I'm hosting the pics, not to mention people's browsers. :p

BTW If anyone happens to want larger versions of my pics, feel free to leave your email in the comments and let me know which pics you want and I'll send them to you!

After Cosfest was over, my friends were joking that I should also try cosplaying Junior's Episode 2 and 3 outfits just so that I can cover all bases because I love him so much. :p I never really considered doing his other outfits since his Episode 1 outfit is my absolute favourite (I hate the colours of his Episode 2 outfit and while I like the Episode 3 one well enough, the lack of a trenchcoat is a major downer for me [I love trenchcoats!], and I find the colours abit dull), but now their suggestion is starting to sound appealing to me, haha! Though if I ever get the chance, I would like to be able to cosplay as Episode 3 MOMO as well because I think that outfit of hers is absolutely adorable~~~~

My friends and I are also definitely going to do a separate photoshoot so that we can get as much mileage out of the costumes as possible - and also because my friend and I want to take some BL-ppoi pictures. LOL! (I just hope I can manage to take them properly with my prudishness...) I have a feeling her boyfriend is going to get coerced into taking BL-ish pics with us too despite all his vehement protests. XD

If I have time, I'll also post an entry next time talking abit about my costume making process because I feel like I learnt alot from making my costume! Sadly I didn't really take many WIP pics since I was too busy concentrating on rushing to finish the costume in time, so I just hope the entry doesn't turn out too boring with all the babbling and hardly any pics, haha. (But I suppose most of my entries are like that!)

EDIT (10 July 2012): Removed my friend's and her boyfriend's photos because she said she feels too embarrassed to have them posted up in public. LOL.

Cosfest 2012 owari~~~~ (Part 1)

WARNING: WALL OF TEXT AHEAD. :p

I'm absolutely delirious with happiness - I finally managed to achieve the ultimate pinnacle of my fangirl dreams by cosplaying at Cosfest this year as my absolutely most favourite video game character ever, Junior (aka Rubedo) from Xenosaga! XD XD XD

It was my first ever cosplay but I think it turned out well! I even had a random cosplayer tell me she thought I looked familiar before I told her that actually I had never cosplayed before. :p *head swells*

(Ok, well, technically I did sort of cosplay at last year's Cosfest as Sakurakouji Sakura from Code Breaker and Rumi from Mousou Shoujo Otakukei, but since I was mostly by myself I was too embarrassed to take many pictures, and it was really more of an "ore toku" cosplay because I was just happy walking around dressed up without taking pictures. :p)

The best thing about the cosplay this time around was that I wasn't alone - my best fellow fangirl friend in RL, to whom I introduced Xenosaga to, had agreed to cosplay Albedo with me (she loves the URTVs as well), and we even managed to convince her boyfriend to cosplay Gaignun (aka Nigredo) with us to complete the URTV OT3! (Though in reality it was more like we forced him, because he REALLY didn't want to, wahahaha. He hates yaoi, but unfortunately has a 200% fujoshi girlfriend so he has to put up with things like this - if you think the girlfriend in Fujoshi Kanojo is evil to her boyfriend, wait till you see my friend. LOL.)

We actually didn't take much pics on the first day of Cosfest, since we arrived quite late and just wanted to soak in the atmosphere and check out other people's costumes, so most of our photos were taken on day 2. The highlight of day 2 was that we actually came across a photographer who recognised us! And who said that Xenosaga was one of his favourite video games! (Also, he cracked me up because in one of the group pics he was taking of us, I was smiling, and then he told me sternly "Rubedo don't smile so much.", like a teacher scolding a naughty boy! LOL! That's why most of my pics after that are of me looking serious, haha!) To us, this was a major deal because Xenosaga is such an old series, and not a particularly popular one either, so it's extremely rare to find anyone who even knows the series. Most people only know the series through the most prominent character, KOS-MOS, a kickass scantily clad android with blue hair - in fact, if you google images Xenosaga, the entire first page is full of KOS-MOS pictures, as if the other characters in the series don't exist. ^_^;; The running joke with my friends was that this cosplay is very "modorenai toku" because we thought no one would be able to recognise us and we were just doing the cosplay to satisfy my long-time fangirl dream. LOL.

Anyway, enough of the talking, here's some picspam! :D (Be warned, this is VERY image heavy. Am going to split the pics up into two separate entries just in case all the pics kill someone's computer!)

Back from the dead (again?)

My gosh, I just realised it's literally been a year or two since I last updated my livejournal with a proper post! (Random note: I find it ironic how livejournal's spellcheck doesn't have the word "livejournal" in its dictionary. :p) I think getting a twitter account pretty much killed my desire to blog because I find it so much easier to tweet short updates than type out my blog posts which invariably turn out to be walls of text, especially since I never used to be regular about blogging in the first place! Also, because of work and the lack of free time, I've pretty much turned into a consumer and am no longer a producer, simply because you don't really need a brain to consume. >_>

But anyway, I think I'm going to attempt to revive this blog because I've been thinking for awhile that my writing skills have really deteriorated because now the only writing I ever do is for work - and work-related writing consists mostly of emails or memos on research which don't exactly call for astounding prose. I doubt my writing on this LJ is going to be any better actually, since most of it will just consist of fangirl burblings, but at least it'll give me a chance to exercise my literary skills (or lack thereof) in a different capacity than work!

Hope I manage to keep this up! *crosses fingers* Not that it matters though since I doubt anyone reads this LJ anymore, haha!
