New photos

February 20th, 2015

Sorry for the lack in updates! I actually haven’t been working on anything new lately because I’ve been focusing on cosplay photography instead. I spent January post processing photos from Ikkicon, and I’m about to do another cosplay photoshoot too.

This means new photos of my own cosplays as well! I have a wireless release for my DSLR, so I’m able to trigger it remotely and basically take selfies XD;;

First, I did a Haku shoot for Christmas. It has 3 parts, so click here for the full image.

Then I did a black and white photo of my Knives Chau costume as part of my Project 52.

I do plan on starting a new cosplay project very soon. Hopefully I’ll have some progress photos up in March!

Yesssss I finally have one

I actually tried to get one of these 1:1 scale replicas back when I first made my Chell costume, but they were sold out. Only the miniature version was still around at the time. They were also a limited edition thing, so I wasn’t expecting them to have more stock.

But… it’s been re-released! And it’s customizable this time!

Rhyme in Shibuya

November 9th, 2014

I just got back from a 2 week trip in Japan! I loved it there, and I plan to write a lot about it soon on my other blog :) The trip is actually why I was working on a Rhyme costume recently. The game, The World Ends With You, takes place in Shibuya, which is a prefecture/ward in Tokyo. It features many real locations inside Shibuya, though some were renamed in the game.

I went there in my Rhyme costume and had my husband take photos of me. We found many locations featured in the game, a few were even by accident. We would walk around and be like, “hey, doesn’t that look familiar?”

We only took photos at a few very recognizable places though. We chose to do:

  • Moyai statue
  • Hachiko statue
  • Tower Records (Towa in the game)
  • Scramble and 109 building (104 in the game)

Here is a preview of me at the Scramble with 109 in the background!
