and I scheduled to shoot out Howl's Moving Castle cosplays which we wore to Manifest~ and of course, on that morning, it started pouring with rain and didn't stop 8'D But we kept shooting anyway! Thanks to
managing to work in stupid conditions and the wonderful help of
who was kind enough to come along, we managed to get some lovely shots still!
We will probably reshoot later in the year, as well as doing their different outfit/hair versions *A* Anyone got a vast meadow of flowers with a little house + waterwheel? HAHA didn't think so 8'D
I love Sophie's unimpressed face in the background~ she was like 'FFS just pose!' 8'D
This is a beautiful, beautiful photo. I don't know how I look so weird, but it's awesome OHOHO 8D
Pink socks! teehee~ cameko!Sophie at work again *u*
Califer shall RULE THE WORLD BWAHAHA
Despite the raining killing my ghibli dreams, it was still super fun!
Then on Friday I did the first of what will be many Uta no Prince-sama shoots! I just simply adore Natsuki and Shou...like...so much *A*
teehee~ First shoot was just solo though, so Natsuki/Satsuki Gemini Syndrome go!
Kinda lacking a thunderstorm and a stage to hijack though LOL XD
I just love that
has one I can use 8D
Trying to do the music falling shots was so painful...my knees got ground to dust, while
's arms fell off from having to throw and pick up the sheets so many times OTL D8 Poor
trying to take photos ;A; Still it was worth it in the end!!
Paper in face...
Actually hit me that time lol
OTL-ing on ground at not being able to get the shot... T_T
I bought a box of broken mirror fragments from a junk shop ages ago, thinking there must be a cosplay I could use them for - and I was right! OHOHO~ Got some really cool shots with these~ but pro-tip kids, check very carefully what is relfected in the mirror you are holding LMAOOO...
was in a whole bunch of these HAHA 8'D
While we were taking the singing shots
started to make this face~~
And so this happened~
SEEDY FACE GO >D
Much fun, much fun~~
~~~~~Meme thing and 10 things about me
I usually don't do these things, but hey why not~ Was tagged by 10 things about me
1. I'm originally British, born in Hong Kong~
2. Related - yes, I can speak with a British accent lol.
3. I am incurably messy~ my room always looks like a bomb has hit it 8'D
4. I wear wigs out on normal social occasions when I can't be bothered to do my hair.
5. I have never played any form of video game. (*gasp*)
6. I am painfully shy...as in, I have really huge difficulty entering a room full of people I know, let alone people I don't. I think people sometimes think I'm kinda cold/aloof because of this...but I'm not...I'm just scared OTL;
7. I think breakfast is really important, and I really hate not being able to have my bowl of cereal and glass of orange juice. Is that weird? 8'D
8. I am a bookworm, always have been, always will be.
9. I have a crazy number of scarves and waistcoats. I think I caught the scarf thing off my mum lol, and waistcoats are just <3
10. I can't stand going on public transport etc without music, but I have to have complete silence at my desk when I'm studying. Contradictions trala~
Questions I was asked to answer:1. Favorite actor/ actress
Umm...there are quite a few...I'll always love Johnny depp, and James McAvoy, Cate Blanchett, Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Kate Winslet, Maggie Smith, Emma Thompson etc~2. Preferred style of art. ( digital, traditional, etc.)
I have eclectic tastes~ *u*3. Favorite color (yay for lame, weird questions )
Probably deep blue 4. Favorite number
...I don't think I have one? o_O5. Country that you want to visit/revisit/live in the most
Will always keep going back to Japan~ I would really love to do a tour of ancient ruins around North Africa and the Midle East *A* I've only been to Morocco and Dubai in those areas6. If you were a king or a queen, what would be the first thing you would do?
I'm assuming you mean a king or queen in some form of absolute monarchy, where I could actually do whatever I wanted, without parliamentary approval XD; If that is the case then I would immediately change Australia's asylum seeker policies, and legalise gay marriage. Sorry for a boring political answer LOL.7. The last thing that you ate was...?
A couple of strawberries.8. Worst nightmare?
I don't really know...I had this horrible recurring dream for a while about coming home to find someone had broken into my house and murdered my family ;A;9. Do you like elephants? ( I do )
I've never spoken to one, so I can't really say *3*10. Mac or PC? Why?
I have a PC...I'm not really big on tech stuff so I can't give a proper answer as to why, I just don't like the way that programs you open and close on Macs do that swoopy thing...
I seem to always get asked the same questions by soooo many people...so I am posting this so that hopefully these ones at least will stop appearing on my page/in my notes lol ^_^
1. Are you a girl or a boy?
It says female on my profile lol...I'm a girl...if I don't have boobs in a picture it's because I bind? 'orz
2. Will you be at *insert name of US con here*
No...because I'm Australian! It's a long way to the US, and very expensive lol.
3. Are you half Asian?
No...I'm not sure how people could think this, but I get asked it a lot...no, I'm not, although I'm rather flattered that people could think so! XD;
4. Do you make or buy your costumes?
I generally make all my costumes ^_^ Unless it's, you know, a white shirt and jeans, then it seems kind of a waste of time. I always write in the artist comments "costume by me" if I made it.
5. What makeup do you use?
I don't have just one brand I use~ people ask most about my eyeliner, which is MAC gel liner ^^
6. How did you make x costume?
I never know how to answer this question...I...made a pattern, cut out pieces of fabric, sewed them together and added detail? I don't know what else to say, sorry 8'D
7. Are you a model?
UHH...NO. lol. I really am not the right size/shape to be a model haha 8'D
8. How do you bind like that?
For most cosplays I use a compression binding shirt - you can buy them online. I have 3 different ones~ For open shirt male cosplays I bind using sports strapping tape, pulling outwards.
9. What type of contacts are those?
I use a range of contacts brands, but my favourites at the moment are Geo Nudy Super Size, and EOS Adult King Size ^^
10. Where did you get x wig?
I used to buy all my wigs on ebay~ there are heaps of stores, just make sure you buy the nice quality kanekalon ones. Now I buy them all on taobao, through an agent. It's about 1/3 the cost 8D
11. Are you blonde naturally?
LOL no...I have dark brown hair and eyes ^_^; I'm quite impressed so many people seem to think blonde is my natural hair colour? 8D /coses all the blonde charas forever/ XD
12. You should cos *insert chara name here*
I only cosplay character I know, and like and (mostly XD) suit...so I don't take suggestions. I'm also not particularly fussed about whether a series is popular or not in deciding to cos it, and I make no apologies for doing really random shoots that no-one has heard of 8D
13. I would love to see more photos! Only a couple are uploaded on dA
I don't like to put too many of the one cos on dA~ full photo sets are up on my cos blog: [link]
I always link the full set at the bottom of the artist's comments.
14. Can I have your msn/email etc?
Nope. I have a cosplay related email listed on this profile, or you can send me a note ^^
Wasn't going to go because my free entry ran out, and there's really nothing worth paying for at this event lol...but
my Shou-chan went through a lot of hassle to change work shifts so she could go, so I am going! Shall be cosing Shinomiya Natsuki from UtaPri (summer uniform) with
as Shou-chan *u* PANEL
So apparently, I am now running a panel at Animania on Saturday! If you're going to be there, come along and watch! It'll be at 11am at the main stage~ will be talking about cosplay stuff generally - crossplay tips, binding, makeup, photoshoots, posing etc, as well as how to see more international cosplay than just dA and conventions! ^_^ Or we could just do a Q&A chat thing...lol I don't really care XD; Come along if you're in Bris *u*
