Cosplayer Memo - 2005 / 2014

It's has been so long since I've been dreaming with this collage!
I've made so many costumes that I've lost count of them during the years, so I believe making a Memo like this is a pretty nice idea!

I've been a cosplayer since 2005, and I had some up and downs in this hobby... I believe the characters I choose have a lot to say about those times of my life... Not only that, it's nice to see the photography evolution through these photos.


So, let's get down to numbers: (My favourite part!)

Costumes: 70
Male Characters: 9
Female Character: 60
Unknown Sex: 1
Hardest costume: Valdo
Easiest: Amane Misa (Was that even a costume?)
Most photographed by: Arthur Araújo (24 photoshoots)
Favourite male cos: Valdo
Favourite female cos: Esther
Most enjoyable to sew: Kirin
Prettiest (in my opinion): Sakura Ch100
Most expensive costume: Marie Antoinette (DEM shoes)
Cheapest: Inori - Departures
Most cosplayed Char: Miku Hatsune (4 versions and more coming!)
Artbook version: 7
Game chars: 16
Non-Japanese media: 4
Fastest sold: Kuroko
Cosplayed together mostly with: Ryou (tumblr.com/wildryou) - 5 times
Dream costume (Still haven't made) Suigin Tou
Ratio: 7 costumes / year
Most costumed series: Vocaloid (5)
First real phtoshoot: Belarus (by Tsukawaii)
Last photoshoot: Sakura (Summer uniform) by Matheus Assunção
Some things are nice to note:
2009 was the year I was trying to enter the university.
2005 and 2006 were years when I only used costumes on Anime-conventions here in my city
In 2011 I started making costumes only for shooting
2010 was when I tried to win costume contests here where I live.
First made a skit in 2006 (Sakura, in a group) and 2007 (Shiroma, alone)
I first made Tohru in 2005 and remade the entire costume in 2013

And that's it! <3 <3 Hope you enjoy it!

Gwendolyn - Make-up pogress and tutorial

Here's how I've made Gwendolyn's make-up! :)
I've used a lot of shinning blue here to get a dramatical look on the cameras.

000_2014042208481025f.jpg001_201404220848175eb.jpg002_20140422084821bfc.jpg003_201404220848171f8.jpg

1. I start with the blue shadow. It's a cheap-shimmery light blue colour. I add it around the eye and pull a little to the left.
2. Then I use a white pencil to draw the waterline of my eye and also near the inner edge.
3. Then I get a very thin brush and mark the bottom part with black and also add a little of smoked black near the outer edge. I also put it on the upper area, where the eyelashes will fit.
4. Lastly I put a little of red shadow near the inner edge. Don't ask me why, I've been doing it since always.

5. Then I add the upper eyelashes and reinforce the black mascara. I also add a final white touch near the eyelash area. You could also add the bottom lashes, they tend to give a "dolly" look, and are usually recommended for models, idols and dolly characters.

Final Look:

[Trick or Alice ] - Drama CD (Light) +18

120058192.jpg

(This Drama CD is 18+. It's not recommended to underages. It contains mature content.)

Personal Review: Light, as always, is quite cute on this DramaCD <3 Surprisingly, this one reminds me of one of Shuu's (Dialovers) Drama CDs, where the Heroine had to take all the initiatives so as to make the Drama CD's story go on. You'll both go take a bath and then Alice starts to throw some ideas at Light. In an overall, this one is quite nice. (Better than Mouse's of course.)

It is recommended that you listen to it after clearing the game

Daily-life ~ Meat table, books and the castle-shopping.

Yesterday I went out with family \*3*/ *Today we're going to the cinema to watch Noeh, nway*
goout (2)

We divided a Meat table together (and couldn't eat everything Y__Y) ahahah I don't usually eat meat, but if there's one that I like it is Chicken's heart...! Woah, how I love it ;_; <3
I also enjoy fried potatoes, mas I tend to avoid it because of my stomach.

We had a lot of satchets' of ketchup, and we couldn't open it there... but, what's a cosplayer bag for?
goout (3)

Of course I had a scissor there... I always have one with me. Never know when you're gonna need it... Aahahah

And then I went out to search for Les Miserables' book and... surprise! A Pocket edition was almost U$30!! WHAAATTT// That's SO damn expensive Y___Y I want that book, but for this price I can't afford it... I'll end up buying on Book Depository in English... I also wanted "A queda da Bastilha" book, but it was U$43... Gosh, what's the problem with you stores!
goout (1)

Aww... I ended up not buying anything... Since it was pre-Easter's holiday the stores were full-packed with people (but the Book Store! ahaha)
goout (4)
(This shopping really looks like a castle in the inside. Too bad it's always so filled with people... it's not rally possible to enjoy a nice time inside it.)

Nonon Cosplay Progress [4]

Yeahh more updates for this costume! <3

The tie!
DSC08610.jpg

I've decided to make the little bones with a golden rope instead of fake bones (Though of using biscuit, eva covered with vinyl or cutting the golden fabric bone shaped). This way it looks cuter! ;3; <3 I really liked the result!

DSC08611.jpg DSC08612.jpg

And my favourite part! The small wings *3* <3

Cute details <3 I've tried to sew the white part over the golden one, but it didn't go well... So I had to hand-back-sew it and glue... >_<

Minor details surely make the difference

Ohh, I'm so weak! I couldn't resist putting gayish details on this costume. Ahahah
_DSC7026.jpg _DSC7027.jpg

I'll put as much glitter and happinesses as I can!

"Ohh, but the original design doesn't have these laces! D:"
Yeaahh, the original design also uses a real monkey skull made of gold and the fabric is sewn together with life fibers. So what?

Nonon Cosplay Progress [1]

Heiya! So I couldn't wait anymore and decided to start sewing my Nonon Costume!
I'm using old fabrics that I've bought a long time ago (That gold fabric is the one used on my Delita's costume, back from 2008! Ahaha) and decided to give it a flashy look!

So, let's start...
First of all, the references~!
_DSC7007.jpg

I've printed the episodes to get some poses of her and have an overall idea of the dress. Then I've sketched it and measured the amount of fabric I would need. Since I already had it at home, I didn't had the trouble to go out and buy it.

_DSC7008.jpg

I have an entire roll of it! Ahaha do you remember back when I bought it? I posted here some time ago xD

Then I used my Ranka Pink dress as a reference to cut this dress pattern:
_DSC7009.jpg_DSC7010.jpg

_DSC7011.jpg

And put all the parts together.

Then, the Sleeve. I really love ruffles ;3; I wish I could put it everywhere in this dress! Ahahah

_DSC7012.jpg

And sew on the dress:

_DSC7013.jpg

And on my body:

_DSC7019.jpg

It's pretty comfortable ^3^ <3

_DSC7020.jpg

And my favourite part: The golden details on the skirt *3*
_DSC7021.jpg
_DSC7024.jpg

And now I'm wondering whether I should or not put a pretty finishing on the base. (I really want to make it gay!)
_DSC7025.jpg

And today's result:


Took me somewhat two hours for this one. I had to make everything during the morning, before classes, so later I'll remake some finishings that I'm not glad with.

I'll go out later to buy some laces, contact glue, thread and will start the boots. Wish me good luck!

Lenses Review: Dueba Gossip Violet (Eye Candys)



Lens' name: Dueba Gossip's violet
Design: 5/5
Color: 5/5
Comfort: 4/5

I've bought this pair of Lenses from Eye Candys and really loved it! It's pretty comfortable, even if sometimes if starts to roll (?) over your eyes. Ahahah The colour is very natural (if you can understand how purple is natural), and after some time you won't even feel it over your iris. The yellow inner circle makes it look really pretty, I guess it's my favourite pair up until now!

Styled wig~

Heeyyy guyzz!
Do you remember yesterday's black wig?
I've decided to style it today and got pretty glad with the result ^3^ <3 (Her hair is really messy!)

_DSC6992_201404051009513e1.jpg

No make-up, but I'll need to use some (a lot) for this character!
Can you guess who is it? I tried to mimic her expression! xD

Wigs and more arrivals *3*

Some new things arrived today *3*

This is a sewing kit! Like those that we see on animes like CCS! It teaches you to make a specific animal (like bears, bunnies and dogs) <3 <3
_DSC6978_20140404094532b9b.jpg

Celes' lace!

Fake petal roses from Rain Cos (kinda ugly if I may say.)

Fake bottom eyelashes! *mine went missing...*
_DSC6979_20140404092538590.jpg

And my Nonon wig! It's so pretty and soft *3* It came a "little" wrinkled, so I'll have to solve it later. I didn't even know that there was a bum coming together with it... Ahahah (From Gost Cos)
_DSC6977.jpg

And my secret project's wig! It's not hard to guess the character, specially if you've been following me on twitter for the past months... I' really excited to start this one. I've already made all the accessories for the photoshoot! 9From Rain Cos! Awesome quality!)

Sewing magazine + random chatting

Hi hi~! Today I went out and managed to find a very precisous magazine!

DSC08528.jpg

I always check on new sewing-magazines on stores. (I really wish that Burda had a brazilian version... It's my favourite pattern maker!) I usually buy Manequim, Moda e Moldes, Moldes fácil and Vogue (when they're on sale, of course $$$)

This time I've bought this Moda Moldes special edition, only with dresses patterns!
To be sincere, this magazine's models tend to be kinda ugly. And, because my size (large hips, small waist, small bust) is out of the standard sizes , I always have to make a lot of adaptations. But they always have simplified patterns, so it's a nice magazine to start with!

I'll show some of the dresses and will explain some of the patterns:

- Long dresses like these (for parties) tend to be kinda hard to sew, so I wouldn't suggest anyone to go on trying on those right from the start. (specially because some mix embroidery and draping.)
_DSC6986.jpg
_DSC6983.jpg _DSC6982.jpg

But, on the same side, you can find some very chic, yet simple dresses! Like those:
_DSC6987.jpg _DSC6984.jpg

Here are the patterns for those:
_DSC6992.jpg _DSC6991.jpg

These are simply cut and sew patterns. No skill required, actually... Just a bit of patience and care. Most of this magazine's dresses are like this, so this is why I would suggest it if you can't afford a Beginner sewing Cosmode. While these Brazilian magazines cost somewhat 10R$, the Cosmode can go from R$90 to R$150!

Anyway, my suggestion is that you buy a cheap fabric (like party satin) and start tracing and cutting these patterns! You can even use TNT or old newspaper if you really don't want to spend money or don't feel very secure to cut actual fabric...

And, some more on the magazine. I've ordered then based on difficulty level (Personal opinion, of course):

_DSC6981.jpg DSC08529.jpg _DSC6972.jpg _DSC6975.jpg

[*****]
DSC08532.jpg DSC08531.jpg

Before getting to cosplay, I strongly suggest getting to know the basics of sewing. Like pencil skirts, tube dresses, A line dresses and skirts, T-shirts, long shirts shorts and pants. From this point on, sewing and adapting every pattern or piece of clothing from your wardrobe will be a piece of cake! Ahaha
So, if anyone is interested on, I can make more posts about these magazines. I have tooooons of then here at my house!

Oh, today my ehru strings arrived! I got really surprised because I got two instead of one... Ahaha I was hoping only for the inner string. Now I just have to wait for the bow.
DSC08525.jpg DSC08526.jpg

And a last rant... Ahaha
I've found Kinderbueno on sales today and bought two (one for and one for my brother as thank-you-gift for always reviewing my texts ;3;) It was very cheap compared to the actual Kinder Egg (kinderovo? xD)
DSC08527.jpg

The egg was R$4.00 each one (something around U$2.00) and the pack with two eggs was R$9.50 (U$4.80). (???) But the most appealing part was this 100g egg, which costs R$22.90!! (U$11.50)
