The life, style, and derp of a small-town girl. Dress-up misadventures, crafting frustrations, and little obsessions can be found here.

This blog is full of my face. You have been warned.

 

It’s February!
I see a lot of people complaining about Valentine’s day all over Facebook and Twitter, so I guess it’s time to play upbeat songs that are surprisingly depressing on loop! Have a corresponding cosplay photo, from my “Just Be Friends” shoot with Niko, Jio, and Van.
Kidding aside, OMG IT’S FEBRUARY. The whole first month of 2014 just flew right by! I’m getting back to what I love doing, and I hope I can share more of that stuff with you soon! I’ll probably start with that photoshoot scheduled for this weekend…
Love,Vanessa

"Just Be Friends" Megurine Luka makeup tutorial

This is how I did my makeup for this photoshoot. First makeup tutorial I’ve ever shot, I’ll probably shoot some other tutorials/vlogs soon. My schedule just freed up a bit, so I’ll likely have extra time on my hands. :P

Also joining in on something really fun, looking forward to sharing that here, too! :D

Megurine Luka cosplay - Just Be Friends version 
Worn at: VocaFusion (event video by reimaru here) 

Niko invited me to do this photoshoot with him at last year’s VocaFusion, a Vocaloid-centric convention here in the Philippines. There’s going to be another VocaFusion this year, I’m definitely looking forward to that! :D

The JBF version of Luka was pretty popular, since it definitely is one of the easier versions to cosplay. Personally, I love the song. I don’t have any specific preference among the Vocaloids, I like listening to a bit from everyone. 

Pulling off the shoot was, I admit, a bit nerve-wracking. I don’t know if I’m the only one who feels all jittery and panicky before any shoot, and this is a character that’s been shot hundreds of different ways. I think the shots turned out pretty well, considering it was semi-impromptu. XD I had plenty of fun, and I definitely would not hesitate to work with sir Jio and Niko again. :)

Oh, and here’s my favorite picture from that convention! JBF - Pimp Edition FTW. Jin and Kat were the most accurate JBF cosplayers there, IMO. <3

Here’s to future cosplays and fun shoots! I’ve got a couple of cosplans lined up for 2013, and I’ll be sharing them here soon enough. O u O
