Photoshoot : Chrno Crusade

I’m sorry for the lack of updates in this blog, I’ve just been so engrossed with life and kdramas hahaha.


I had the chance to finally cosplay this old series last october. Can you believe this cosplan has been 6 years in the making?! Yes, Zephyus and I were intending to debut it at AFA 2010 – the year we represented Singapore to take part in the AFA Regional Cosplay Competition. Can’t believe how fast time flew! We didn’t eventually managed to finish our costumes and things just kept dragging since everyone was busy. I must admit I was surprised we even managed to have the shoot done haha.


Most of my costume was made in 2010 with exception of the headdress, gun, pouch, gloves and shoes. Darn am I glad my fabric lasted so well! Special thanks to Nik for the lovely photographs and Sara for being our angel helper!  Of course, the shoot wouldn’t be possible without my Chrno so major thanks to Zephyus for going along with the cosplay ^_^

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!
