I just want to post some feedback, photos and links related to events I attended in costume during the past few weeks!
It included a lot of costuming and crafting. More to come, but for the next few days I will be prioritizing orders placed by customers. During that time, my next costumes will be brewing in the planning and preparation departments, especially those coming up for rAge Expo.
I realized that this post would require so much work, and I really need to condense the content since I am sooo tired but also don't want to put it off any longer since I have a moment for this update now. I am mostly just going to link back to my Facebook albums containing photos of the below mentioned events.
First up, the 5th cosplay picnic happened on 20 April 2013.
I debuted my Nyan Miku Cat concept there.

You can find a few shots of this cosplay in this Vocaloid album on my Facebook page. Here is an album showing coverage of this event on the Cosplay Cape Town Facebook group.
Yama and I also practiced very hard to put together a duo performance as well as a solo each for this event. You can see videos of that on my Youtube channel here.
Next up was the 2UpGamers event.
Photo by Zombiegamer! Yamaki took her Project Diva 2 Len cosplay and I took Miku as a maid, both Vocaloid characters.
They have a really cool spot in the Green Point Trinity club now, every month! They do a lot to accommodate cosplay and I look forward to attending more of their events in the future! <3
The next event was a Road To Ninja Naruto movie screening hosted in Stellenbosch by Anime South Africa! They have an album here covering the event. It was lovely seeing that movie, but I won't go into detail here regarding my thoughts on it (that would require a whole review post lol). As you can figure out by the pics, I cosplayed Kushina for this event.
Here are some extra shots on my Facebook page.
3 events happened after that where I got to wear my Misa Amane cosplay from Deathnote (Anime & Manga).
The first was Geek Pride Day hosted by Premiere Fitness & Leisure Gym, the 2nd was the bday of Grant Hinds and the 3rd was a gaming event in Observatory (hosted by 2UpGamers). I shared some photos of those instances in this Facebook page album.
Then, the last event was a photoshoot in casual UtaPri clothes from the anime Uta No Prince Sama. It was a photoshoot won by Jamey (who cossed a casual Nanami), with Yamaki and I in crossplay. This was my first ever full body crossplay, and now I am HOOKED. It's so exciting and challenging pulling off a male cosplay haha! See some phodies here :3
Here is one of my fav images from that shoot, based on fan art we saw online! :D
Exciting new developments in the loop for me. Will post about it soon! :D
