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.

 

Project: Cammy (update 1 - wig trial)
Yay for badly-shooped tank tops! XD I got this wig in a couple of months ago, but haven’t had the chance to take pics wearing it. Gonna be doing plenty of work on it to make it more accurate, but the basics are there. 
I decided on cosplaying Cammy because I wanna throw some love her way. I grew up with Street Fighter, sucked at it for the most part. I still mostly suck at it, but I love studying their movements. Chun Li seems to be more popular among the female Street Fighter cosplayers, and my own fighting style and movement tend to match hers more, but Cammy’s my excuse/reason to become more toned. I’m clearly not toned enough to do default Cammy yet. XD
Still not sure which version of Cammy I’ll be doing, and details of when and where are still very much up in the air at this point. I just wanted to do a quick (badly-shooped!) trial for kicks. XD My makeup could use some work, and I need to practice scar makeup (the scar isn’t shooped, though). Brighter contact lenses also necessary, I believe.

WIP: Hatsune Miku - Lots of Laugh version

I’ve decided that I want Miku’s LOL version to be one of my “backup” cosplays - something easy to transport and slip into for unplanned/decided-on-the-day-before convention visits! I ordered the seifuku from Bodyline, but I’m considering this a WIP since I’m going to rip out the cheap lace and replace it with more appropriate material. Good luck to me!

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
