Genki convention | Japan in one week

I have been bad at blogging lately sorry! But thank you so much for the nice comments on my entry last time! I'm sorry I didn't get to respond, but it made me very happy *(*´∀`*)☆

I've been super busy with a lot of photoshoot projects, making cosplay (!!), and yeah.. preparations for Japan! Well I'll take it all in chronological order.

Genki con 2012
Serious picture with serious pink cake ♥
 So two weekends ago I attended a Danish Japanese anime/manga convention. It was a lot of fun, and even more exciting since I'm starting getting into cosplay (now let's see if I'll lose any followers on this lol)
I've done a bit before as some of my earlier readers might know, but I'm getting much more into it now and have a looot of future cosplay projects I wanna do teehee (´∇ノ`*)ノ

Friday I cosplayed "Menma" from Ano Hana

Sewing that dress was much trickier than I thought.. But at least everything's white so you don't notice my mistakes in photos haha >_>;

Saturday I crossplayed (!!) as "Toudou Heisuke" from Hakuouki ♥ Now THAT was a challenge! I already went on a photoshoot with that cosplay before the convention, so I already tested it out luckily..
I know my face isn't super manly, so I chose the most girly/boyish looking character from the series XD
I'm so serious... XD
I might post some photos from the photoshoot as well when they're ready! Later that day I changed into the 'Rasetsu/Oni' version from Hakuoki and was joined by my partner Zuum as Souji ♥
Yum yum blood everywhere XD
And Sunday I was much excited as I was cosplaying as Yukari/Caroline from one of my favorite manga Paradise Kiss.

 And with my lovely Zuum as George ♥

More photos might come later!
Photo by me
And lovely Lea that I stayed at did a casual Captain America inspired outfit and I did her makeup ♥

You can watch all my photos from Genki if you're interested on my facebook (yes it's public for once!)

Yup and that was it! Lovely convention but burning hot.. I wouldn't complain if it wasn't because I was wearing too hot costumes ;_; I must plan my cosplays after what season the conventions are placed in next time lol

`*:;,.★ ~☆・:.,;*

And oh yes! Now there's only ONE WEEK until I'm moving to Japan for a year!! I must say once again that I'm dead scared and anxious >___>; I know it's something I have to do and have been looking forward to, but now that's it's actually just around the corner I'm turning into a scaredy cat >_<; At least I'm not travelling alone this time!!

`*:;,.★ ~☆・:.,;*

And I have a question for my lovely readers.. I'm considering making a Facebook page for my makeup and other creative stuff... Would it be a good idea?? Yay or nay??

somehow it just seems a bit embarrassing compared to a blog >_<; But I'd be able to update faster and put up small stuff and WIP stuff. And then do the decent posts in bogger still ofc.

Thanks for looking!

「Midsummer Flower & Night」 PHOTOSHOOT | New Layout

Ego spam of d00m is coming up! (*~▽~)

The amazing photographer of this double shoot is Silas Staal.
We were super ambitious and did 2 shoots in one day! 

I was a bit nervous since 'self-camming' and modeling in front of photographer is two whole different things lol.. A bit awkward in the beginning since striking ridiculous cliché modeling poses feels really... ridiculous (^~^;)ゞ I already warned Silas that I might only have 5 poses and the same face all the way haha (ñ_ñ) But I guess everything turned out fine in the end and luckily I didn't get too nervous or awkward! Working with Silas was a lot of fun!

***First shoot***
The first shoot was a summer inspired shoot. If you noticed (or follow my blog lol) I used the hair accesory I made for the Vietnamese fashion show/catwalk (◕‿◕✿)

Click BIG! :D

***Second shoot***
After the first shoot we went home and got ready for a night shoot. This was all kinda.. random in case of my styling. Coincidently Silas had a purple cosplay wig, and I thought it would be fun to use, and then I wrapped a necklace around and it became a bit bohemian style (●´艸`) Yes, now you know my secret XD

 And that was it! Well just so you know I didn't entirely spam you, there was more than 100 photos from this set lol... 
It was a super fun experience and both me and Silas were so hyped that we already did another shoot last Tuesday haha! I'll post them of course when they're ready..

***New Layout***
And as you might have noticed I changed my layout! I like this A LOT more than the old.. Looks more pro now haha! And the photo is of course taken by Silas, banner edited by me.
But I seriously need a new blog title and name/address! I'm just really uncreative with names and titles ugh... but anything must be better than the current one o(-_-;*)

That was all! There's not long before Japan, but I must admit my life currently revolving around photoshoots (both as photographer and model) isn't too bad (*´艸`*)
