Hello all! Revealing a new… ish side of
myself! The cosplayer!! Let’s get a few things straight. Yes, I am a girl, and
yes, I crossplay more than is healthy. XD
Now! Time to start. Let me give you the low
down about this blog. This’ll be all about my cosplay experiences, blah blah.
In the comments feel free to discuss what ever I discuss, offer suggestions, or
just be random. Now to the main event….
KAITO!!! (So smexy!!)
So, recently I ordered a Kaito (Vocaloid)
wig. Tearing it out of the package took longer than expected… yeah, I’m scared
to use scissors. It’s too pretty!! Anyway, so I get it out and spend nearly
half an hour petting it. I’m honestly really impressed with the quality. It’s
extremely soft and well styled. So, I pin my hair up and ghasp! ZOMG! I needed
to style the bangs.
I’m not even joking, the bangs were
unstyled… not even like an attempt. The bangs went past my chin. Now, this
wouldn’t be a problem, for a normal cosplayer. But I kind of have a love for hair styling… so this, of
course will take be forever. I’m not even half way done and it’s been a grand
total of 40 minutes. I’m also having trouble finding a good gel for my wig. If
any of you know of any decent brands I can find in Canada, I would love you
forever. It’s hard because I can’t find a brand that isn’t too gely. One that
doesn’t make my wig look like crap would be nice, but one that keeps it all
See the last wig I styled was my Claire
Stanfield (Baccano!) wig. I’m so proud of that but it took me close to 4 hours
in total. Let’s just say it started of as a shoulder length wig. I nearly died,
but it actually looks really, really nice. It’s good because I was able to
avoid having to use a lot of intense gel. But GAH! Did it take forever!!
Anyway, a nice brand of gel for my wig
would be glorious. No joke. I will give you an internet cookie for your
Duke Of Venomania
Judgment Of Corruption
Onto the costume. Originally, I was going
to just to a Magnet Kaito cosplay, but I guess my plans have changed. I love
Kaito way to much (I
think I need an intervention). Currently I’m making 3
Kaito cosplays. Magent, Judgment of Corruption, and Duke Of Venomania’s
Madness. It’s pretty insane but I love the costumes too much not to do them.
I’ll probably wear my Kaito costumes to the replacement Anime Evolution, called
Cos & Effect, in Vancouver. I’m excited. It’s a shame that my close friend
will be busy with a Saint Seiya cosplay. I’ve actually been meaning to do one
of those, but y’know what? I honestly don’t have the money for that, so I’m
going to have to hold out on that one.
I recently finished my Magnet Kaito
headphones for my Magnet Kaito cosplay. I found this old pair of headphones
that I decked out with my acrylic paints. The artist in me was
so happy!! I had
my smock on and everything. Too bad I didn’t have some j-pop playing in the
background. It would have made me so anime-nerd-ish. XD I’m also in search for
my judge’s robes for my Judgment of Corruption cosplay. That and a purple vest.
WHY PURPLE? I swear it will drive me around the bend. At least I commissioned a
friend to make my Duke Of Venomania costume at a discounted price. My inability
to sew dresses will get me killed one of these days. I know it.
In conclusion: Decked out in blue, obsessed
with Kaito, fake blue hair everywhere, me huddled in a corner with a half
styled wig, and desperately searching for a judge’s cloak. Oh I love being a
Finally, a reminder, any suggestions for
good hair gel for my wig? I have a budget XD Thanks and I hope you liked this first blog of many
to come. :)
