Jumping on the bandwagon too!

First photo is my Rin costume I made in 2 nights, May 2010 at Phoenix Comicon. I was really ostracized by the other Vocaloids - they wanted nothing to do with me, and I was really discouraged…

Second photo is my “Miku” OTL Which was done with the help of my grandma. I had no idea what makeup could do. This was Halloween 2010.


Third picture is the final product Rin, which is by far my most popular costume. Makeup and amazing photographers help too! (Thanks Cheshire-K!!!) This costume is retired since it’s worn out and I wanted to do new things.

Last picture is my most recent Oz Vessalius costume! Looking at it in this light, I realize how well I actually did. I’ve been having a really hard time with self esteem, because in the past few months, I’ve had the privilege of working with all my cosplay idols (THATS YOU BANZAI AND JOY.) So I’ve felt really inferior in my craftsmanship, and that no matter how hard I try, it just doesn’t look good enough. It also really doesn’t help that Oz has nowhere near the fanbase that Rin does, so it hasn’t gotten the rave reviews that I was expecting in a way (Rin made me forget reality).

So! I’ll be doing a few more improvements on Oz, and moving forward! Because there’s no point in getting stuck redoing something over and over again (well, in Rin’s case it was great, but Oz isn’t in the state of disrepair my first Rin was hahaha). 


So the story is this:

I’m the Oz, and Alice is Rati from SpicyTacoCosplay. We’ve known each other approximately 24 hours at this point, and we decided to do a mini-photoshoot with the help of our friend Joy.

Needless to say, we had trouble keeping straight faces. I mean, I would have had trouble keeping a straight face even with my closest friends, but having to look all lovey dovey at practically a stranger and touch their face lovingly was awkward! So I made this photoset.

I had such a fun time though X3 NEW FRIENDS ARE THE BEST!


ZAA Cosplay’s Matsuri Festival video is now live! Check out our adventures :3 


Our cosplay shenanigans from the Arizona Renaissance Fair!! I’ll also do a photo post at some point.


(Thursday Repost)

I got to the con around 2 ish because I had to go to school, and I was cosplaying Cardcaptor Sakura. Almost immediately I found friends and since the vendor hall wasn’t open yet we did a mini-photoshoot and I got many shots I’m really happy with! more friends showed up, but we decided to go poke around the vendor hall for a while.

A little while later I headed back upstairs and found Joi-ful Cosplay and Tarasque Productions and we did some photos together as well which was fantastic! I got some really amazing shots of my Sakura and took some pretty awesome ones myself :)

I had to scurry off to a friend’s Supernatural panel (Hunter 101) and since we’re all friends I got to sit right in the front row XD It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed the panel. I had to head home relatively early, so that was Thursday! All in all I got stopped for more pictures than I thought I would and I had a lovely time.
