Hey so I decided to make me some Ryuko Matoi! The costume isn’t perfect (just like my belly, ahahahaha) but it’ll do for now. Proportions on Senketsu are tough! o_o
I wore this on Tsunacon 2014, here in the Netherlands- and I’ve never been recognised THIS MUCH OHH LORD. DD:
Pictures were made by Marjolein (or MikoBura here on Tumblr and on Flickr) from RE: PLICA which she hosts together with her boyfriend. Who was the one to take the pictures from my Bee cosplay. :D
Normally I don’t really like cosplaying from popular series. And when I do, I mostly end up picking an unpopular or side character. This time though, the protagonist ROCKED MY SOCKS. And thus I stepped out of my comfort zone and started on a costume that had a short skirt and a visible belly.
I haven’t had the time nor the materials to complete Ryuko/Senketsu entirely like I’d want to (there’s some major minor mistakes on the glove, I’m not content with the black hip somethingemagics and, obviously, I’m MISSING MY SCISSORBLADE), so I’ll go and take my time to improve it for another, bigger event later this year. I’m so excited to wear this costume again! And that time it’d even being better! :D
Here’s another thing I did!
My Peter Pan cosplay’s already about half a year old, but I never got around getting decent pictures taken of it. The photographer who took these isn’t really content, so I guess we’ll have to find an other time to try again (woe is me!), but this’ll have to do till then!
Also my wig. Goddarnit, stupid headhamster. >:I
Peter’s one of my child heroes. I watched Disney’s Peter Pan along with Robin Hood at my grandparents’ house every time I was over- at least once. My love was complete when last year, I read Brom’s Child thief and only a short while ago, J.M. Barrie’s original Peter in Kensington Gardens and Peter and Wendy. It’s an amazing read, and since it’s from before copyright was a thing, you can even find it on the internet in it’s original form! YOU CAN READ IT FOR FREE, TUMBLR.
One of the things I think is most amazing about Peter is his carefree (though dangerous) attitude. Life comes as it does and everything is a new adventure. He might not learn from his adventures and they might even be completely in his own mind, but he enjoys every last second of it.

Whoop, I’m alive!
For Nishicon, last weekend (16/17th of november) I decided to dress up as Bee. Sadly, I didn’t have any time left to get myself a Puppycat too.
I got recognised four times. Think that’s a lot, actually, for such a small convention! o_o
I WAS SO CUTE.
(what you can’t see here, is that the shorts actually have softer pink buttpockets, like Bee also has. This, and the lack of Puppycat and candy(wrappers), calls for a proper, off-con Bee shoot once!)
MAJOR AWESOME THANKSES to my good friend Daniel from RE:PLICA for taking pictures.
Impossible things are happening everyday.
(if someone figured out how this works, please explain to me, I’m hurting my brain over figuring this out!)
Watch me grow
made a separate blog for everything I’ll make in art school.
So my dearest Merenwen (who you might remember from the incredibly awesome birthday gift she drew me?) decided to get herself an art degree and started doing so this year. You can now follow her achieving this goal on a separate tumblr and it’s already looking promising!
