Photoshoot: Final Fantasy 8 Quistis Trepe

I’ve been wanting to reshoot this old costume for a long while and I’m thrilled to finally do it last october. The costume is actually nearly a decade old and it’s the only costume to be hanging in my closet for the past 9 years. When I cosplayed Quistis, my dressmaking skills was still pretty noob so I got my dad to make the top for me. He made the base of the coat while I went ahead to add the lapels and embellishments. My parents aren’t exactly thrilled with my hobby but they let me do what I want and occasionally, they step in to help. Which is why this costume has a special place in my heart because my dad made half of it =)

 

And because I used really good quality fabric, the costume has remained in mint condition. Save the satin part which has definitely started to lose it’s shine, which was the reason why it needs a reeshoot before it turns matte entirely haha. Special thanks to Ahbutography for having this photoshoot with me and to Evonne for her awesome assistance!

Gamestart Asia 2016 (Cosplay photo gallery)

How many of you were at the Gamestart Asia this weekend?  Southeast Asia’s premier game convention is now onto it’s third year and it’s back with more jazz than ever before! Held at the Suntec Convention Hall, the convention was packed to the brim with performances, lucky draws and tournaments to entertain and excite it’s visitors.  Here is a short entry of my day at Gamestart Asia.

I arrived in the mid afternoon of Saturday to enjoy the event. While not an avid gamer myself, I enjoyed the lively vibe, excitable tournament narrating and funky neon lights of the convention halls. Before I headed into the convention halls though, I made it a point to take a few shots of the lovely cosplayers camping outside at the corridors first. After all, the full length windows at level three of the convention corridor always casted perfect natural lighting.

How to make: Elsa’s (Frozen) sparkly shoes!

I first cosplayed Elsa more than a year ago in a private photoshoot with my friend Yuanie, cosplaying as Jack Frost. Since it was a photoshoot, I unabashedly decided to cut some corners and left out crafting her shoes. I playfully decided to bring the costume to Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention this year and it dawned upon me that a sparkly pair of Elsa shoes had to be made!

Especially since I needed to run around the halls to catch Cosermons (watch the hilarious video here!), there was no way I could hide my legs under the gown without feeling a deep sense of “shame” haha  8D.

How I made Elsa’s costume: LINK

I started the project feeling really lost but I eventually found a way that was not only easy but relatively cheap (dependent on the cost of the heels) too! I filmed my crafting process and have put them into a tutorial video for your convenience. Hope someone finds it useful!

Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention 2016

I had a wonderful time at Singapore Toy Games and Comic Convention this year with a bunch of friends. I cosplayed as Elsa from Frozen and partnered with Yuanie who was cosplaying as Jack Frost. Here’s a photo journey of my first day (saturday) roaming the halls.

CATCHING COSPLAYER-MONS @ STGCC 2016!

I can’t remember the last time I cosplayed at an event. Maybe it wasn’t that long ago but it definitely felt long. Ever since starting the blog, my job as a blogger has pushed cosplay to the back seats. It was refreshing to remember how it felt to be cosplaying at an event like the good old days. The companionship of partners, getting ready together and offering each other help plus the adrenaline rush of cosplaying at an event made me fall in love with cosplay again, haha.

A shout out to my awesome companions that day. Hello Sakana, Seiyume and Yuanie!

On the 2nd day of Singapore Toy Game & Comic Convention, I had the honour of cosplaying Elsa from FROZEN with Yuanie who was cosplaying as Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians. We actually had a photoshoot for the pair last march but decided to have fun with it at STGCC again this year. After all, Singapore toy Games & Comic Convention seemed like the most appropriate event to debut these two ‘western’ pop culture characters.

I decided to do something special this time. WIth the overwhelming popularity of Pokemon Go! (mobile game) and under the sagely advise (coughstrangeideascough) of a friend (shout out to Nik!) ; I spent my sunday running around the event premise (and outside of it) catching poke Cosermons. Cosplayer Monsters, if you didn’t get that heheh.  Check the video out below. 

 

 

 

 

Immense gratitude to all the cospalyers who participated. All of you were such troopers and I loved everyone’s cosplays!  If anyone knows the cosplayers, leave a comment so I can credit them accordingly. Major thanks to my Jack Frost (yuanie) for being my partner in crime. As you can see from the video, some of the pokeball was thrown by her heheh.

 

This was probably one of my happiest event for a long time -  thanks to STGCC and most importantly, the wonderful people I met that not only encouraged me but brightened my day with their warm smiles.
