2016: Towards a fresh start!

Anddd that’s it for 2015! It has been a wonderful year for me! In my four years of cosplaying, 2015 has been the best year so far.

I was really happy that 2015 opened new doors for me. I met new friends, I was able to join and be invited to photo shoots, have a cosplay group, and be part of an amazing team.

2015 started slow for me in terms of cosplaying. I got busy with school stuff that’s why. When September came, the cosplays came crashing down! Events, photos hoots, and other stuff happened every week! My parents reprimanded me because of that, them being mindful of my health.

Anyway, 2015 was also the year I was invited to be part of an amazing team which is Moonstruck Creatives. Romeo Encisa Jr., who I call Kuya Roms, the creative director of Moonstruck Creatives and a close friend of mine was the one who invited me to be part of his team.

Though the start of my 2015 until mid-November was a bummer, it still ended well, and better than I have expected. It was such a roller coaster ride of emotions. Who knew I was capable of handling all those feels /pats self/ ! Of course, I wouldn’t be where I am now without the help of my best friends, my ever jolly room mates, and my friends who helped me along the way, especially during the times I was struggling to fight my inner demons.

I will be in a hiatus this 2016 because I will focus more (I will try to lol) on my studies. College will be tougher this coming semester, so goodluck to me!

Anyway, I’m looking forward to a fruitful 2016. Also, I’ve started an album called “366 Days” which is an album consisting of everyday shinanegans of yours truly. This is to remind me that everyday is a blessing and also my form of self-therapy.

It’s been a while since I’ve last posted here ; u ; Goodness, college is taking most of my time OTL

Anyway, last October 17, 2015, I was invited by my friend Kasume to join her Touken Ranbu shoot. I was supposed to go as Namazuo, but I don’t have his default costume yet so I just went as a photographer lol.

It was a really fun shoot because, 1) It was my first time shooting under the rain; 2) I got to meet fellow photogs and learned few things from them; 3) I got to shoot sword boys hehehe

I hope to shoot more sword boys in the future!

Wig Review: Blue Beard

Hello dear readers! This is my first wig review! I won this lovely wig from Sese’s giveaway ~

I’ll be reviewing a wig from Blue Beard. This wig is for Kisshou/Benio of Zone-00.

I’ve heard several commendations from my friends that Blue Beard is  a good brand of wig, so I just have to try and see for myself 🙂

1 base wig and 1 clip-on. Both have its perspective net mesh thingy.

It’s so pretty and it’s so soft *^* Look at the tag, such a cute whale with a top hat :3

I attached the clip-on here. The wig has this ‘ahoge’ held up by a thin copper wire. The base wig has hooks so you can adjust its tightness on your head.

The clip-on is very thick, same as the base wig. It’s not really shiny, it’s smooth and it’s super soft!

Overall, I am really satisfied and in love with this wig!! I would definitely order this brand next time ~

Though it’s a little pricey compared to other wig brands, it’s worth every cent!

Softness: 5/5

Shininess: 4/5

Texture: 5/5

Thickness: 5/5

No Game No Life: Shiro

Thanks to my ever wonderful sister for making this trial shoot possible! *throws glitters at sis*

Last Saturday (March 07) I went to get my Shiro costume from a friend of mine. I’ve been hooked with the series and I’ve been itching to cosplay this cutie >u<

Thrifter Adventures: New shoes!

shoes

Last Wednesday, I decided to drop by at this thrift shop near the university. To my luck, I found this pair of shoes! It’s a really good purchase. I didn’t see any flaws on the shoes and it looks so brand new! 😀

I bargained it for Php 200 (less than $4). I’m so happy! > u <

It even has a leopard print inside, so cute!! :3

Zone00 Benio + Kisshou

It’s finally here!! After 2 years of planning, it’s finally here! *A*

I was really hesitant at first to cosplay this boy (Yes! This is a boy!) because his devil version’s (Kisshou) costume is too revealing for me. I only opted to cosplay his angel version (Benio) but with encouragements from friends to cosplay Kisshou too, I sucked up all my worries and had both costumes made.

It’s a really big step for me since outfits like Kisshou’s aren’t really my thing for most of my cosplays but I really do love this character and thus, it drove me to be fit for him ~

Photos below are from my recent trial. Both costumes still lack some details and I’m wearing a random blonde wig that I found stashed here at home that I just made do with XD

New blog!

Hello there dear Earthlings! So I’ve /finally/ made a blog! Well, I have made blogs before but I can’t seem to have time to update it and all. I’ve made two tumblr blogs before for cosplay, but wordpress seems more flexible for me (and it isn’t blocked here in my dorm lol).

Anyways, I’ll try  my best to update this blog often! 😀
