I'm back from the dead!

I missed blogging so muuuuch!

It's been a long time since I had an entry in here. I decide to start blogging again because I realized that this has been my passion. I hope I don't get lazy though. hahahahaha.

I will separate my reviews/tutorial/fashion/beauty/cosplay blog. This will still be my personal blog. :)


It's still under construction though. :))

Going on a Hiatus

I'm going on a hiatus after I finish these last two cosplay plans. I realized that there are things that I should prioritize and there are goals outside the hobby that I want to achieve, namely traveling. I want to save up for that after I graduate.

Now that acads are getting harder and demanding, and with my thesis starting anytime soon, I do not have the time anymore. I will still attend cons in 2015, but I will not produce new costumes. Maybe I'll just wear my old cosplays. I'll also have shoots sometimes. I might or might not go back doing the hobby, but it was really fun. It was nice meeting new people even if I really do not talk that much due to my shyness. :)

Touko Fukawa Cosplay

Hi there everyone! It's been a long time since I last blogged.

And hey, it's 2014! I wanna greet everyone a Happy New Year! yayy!
The past year has really been a hectic one for me, but it had really been great and worthwhile.

We had a Danganronpa Photoshoot before the year ended. It was our last shoot for 2013. I was with Argenn who cosplayed Junko Enoshima and Kenn who cosplayed Togami Byakuya.

Moving on, here are my pictures~

These are my favorite shots :)

The Trouble that Cosplayers have to go Through

People ask, "You're a cosplayer?"

You say, "Yeah". 

It's a fun hobby. It's what I love doing the most when I'm not studying. It's a showcase of your art and love for the series or anime.

But here comes a problem. People know that you have numerous wigs, costumes, and stuff. They abuse you and they just BORROW it. If you say it's for rent, they get mad or disheartened. 

Well, if you're one of my BEST friends, you could just borrow it from me. Besides, they're cosplayers too and they understand the pain of taking care of wigs and costumes. 

Hello? Each costume is not for free or just obtained from somewhere. Lots of money was spent for those! I've had enough of these borrowing schemes. When some of schoolmates borrowed my wigs, by the time they were returned to me, they were very tangled and very smelly.


Just so you know, each wig of mine costs 750-1800 pesos. They don't come cheap. I felt as though my stuffs are demoralized when they are returned at that condition. 

Do you even have shame, people? Libre na nga, ganun pa ang lagay pagsauli. Kung magcha-charge ako ng rent fee, kayo pa magagalit?

Just so you know, cosplay is not a hobby for the thrift. Even simple costumes can amount to 800-1000 (ex. seifukus). The most expensive costume I have so far amounts to almost 6-7 thousand pesos.

When all of my spending in my costumes are accumulated, I don't even wanna add them up anymore. It's a price that we, cosplayers have to pay.

My point here is, we are not your borrowing shop or "you're-just-important-when-we-need-you" people. You all make me sick.

Davao Cyber Expo 2013

Hi there everybody~ How are you doin?
It's been quite a long time since I last wrote a blog post.

It's been a long time since I last attended a convention, and there was one last July 30 :D 

The Last Convention I attended was the Davao Cyber Expo, or DCE, which took place in SM City Davao- the Annex.

I cosplayed Mikasa Ackerman from Shingeki no Kyojin.

It's my first time cosplaying a character with huge props like this. It was really hard to move around without hitting people. Ooops.

My 3D Maneuver Gear was commissioned from Gomer Tabaoda of Gomz and Crafts.
I had the costume made by my trusted seamstress. I had my patches heat pressed in "Shirts Avenue". Scarf and white leggings were mall-bought by me. My belts were commissioned from Micheal de Guzman of Cosplay Props. Wig is bought from Vogue Royal Le Croix.
Makeup was done by yours truly. :D

 Once I'm dead, I won't even be able to remember you. So I'll win, no matter what. I'll live, no matter what! — Mikasa Ackerman

I'll do an official photoshoot of this costume with Mai and Argenn within August! I'm so excited! 

I was with my friends Argenn, who went as Sakura Haruno; Chime, who went as Kuroko Tetsuya Genderbend; Jillianne, who went as Midorima Shintaro genderbend, and Gui, who went as herself. :)

On to the pictures~~

We love to make derp faces. I guess that's my specialty. XD

While waiting for our turn in the studio...

I still have lots of pictures, but I'm tired to resize them. Just visit my Facebook if you're interested.

That's all for now. JA~!
