Start to 2013: Cons/Cosplay/Other updatesWhat up guys. Finally sunk into me that it's 2013: brand new year, full of stuff to do. I have no doubt that it's gonna fly by before I know it so I wanted to update with some stuff that's been going on:
1. Kicked off the year with MelCosPho 13. Not gonna lie, it was probably one of the biggest gatherings of cosplayers in Melbourne since probably the last convention (Armageddon). Was insane as to how many people showed up, and for a social chameleon such as myself it was overwhelming not recognizing over 80% of the people there.
I used the meet to debut my first cosplay of the year: Afro Samurai! (Mugshot can be seen here -----> http://shinyspikes.deviantart.com/#/d5reqe8 ) It was actually supposed to be my first ever cosplay back at Armageddon 2011 and I was going to make it out of my old Taekwondo uniform (thank god I didn't omg). I had a lot of fun making a cosplay from scratch, thank you to :icondarcywilliam: for giving me the sword to modify and helping me weather the headband and
A mid-year update..Hello everyone It's a Friday night and I'm feeling alright so I thought I'd write out an update just as we approach the middle of the year~
Time is flying and some pretty big milestones in my life are coming up. I'm turning 18 in September and my Year 12 exams are in November. University plans have been going back and forth in my head but for now I'm trying to take it all one day at a time. it's only gonna get tougher from here but I'm confident I can smash through it.
Cosplay time: I've been laying low since Supanova due to studies but I had some time last weekend to attend a gaming tournament in Melbourne with :iconbbchibi: which was pretty fun and may have opened up a few awesome opportunities for us in the future (Can't say anything for now)
I've been organizing my next couple of costumes: I really want to pump out Kilik (Soul Eater), Tiger Jackson (Tekken) and Zimos (Saints Row 3) as quickly as possible. I haven't decided if I want to shoot the latter two or just keep them con-
2012 Recap - To everyone I've met.So it's Christmas Eve here (Australia) and I thought I'd use today to write up a recap of this year, cosplay wise and life wise.
-grabs a cup of tea-
Cosplay wise, it's been awesome. 2012's been my first full year of cosplaying and I've enjoyed it so much. I only got through 4 cosplays because of how stressful school was this year but hopefully that number will rise much more next year. I attended a heap of cons and participated in cosplay groups and overall I had an awesome time. My Sazh cosplay was the first time I received so many compliments and posing of photos, thank you to :iconmynameisdat: for suggesting the character to me.
This year was the first time I attended every Melbourne con: The Big Three of Supanova, Manifest and Armageddon as well as the epic failure that was Oz Comic-Con and needless to say I had an epic time. We know how to have fun here in Melbourne and I hope we can bring the fun interstate or even overseas next year (Fingers crossed!)
This year life-wise has be
