TRAILER: Digifection Photoshoot 2017

Guess what? We had a #Digifection Cosplay Photoshooting on the weekend of the 18th and 19th of march and I got the chance to take some videos for a behind the scenes video, just like the last one (althought this time I have more actual material). You can check it out here:

Here is again a link (click) if it somehow doesn’t work.
Our Sora also made a Tumblr just for our group. Check it out here: Digifection.

I want to add some finished and edited pictures into the real behind the scenes video, so it will at least take as long as the pictures take. After that I need to edit the video, so maybe in a month or two I will have the final version ready. You’ll get notified here (or you can just subscribe to my YouTube Channel, there is a lot more cosplay content going to come very soon. Hohoho).

I will also write a bit more about my experience and our activities of this weekend in the blogpost for the full video.

See you next time and thank you for watching.

Hikari Yagami [Tri], Making Of – Part 1: Wig, Make Up and DigiVice

Welcome to a new Making Of – Series. Yes, I know, I haven’t even finished the started ones, but I like to have some variety… So today I will start with the Wig, Make Up and the DigiVices I made for my Hikari Yagami Cosplay from the anime series Digimon Adventure Tri.

For all of you who don’t know what she/her outfit looks like:

As you probably can tell she has a school uniform. She is in middle school and wears a winter- and summeruniform and as much as I love Hikari – you should know – I will sew both. Well, at this point the winter uniform is finished.

Since I am going over things that took a long while (I did take a lot of progress pictures!) this post will be rather long. Be prepared for text. Warning over. Without further ado, let’s get started:

So to get started, what do I need? A wig, some basic make up and some basic DigiVices.

Hikari Yagami, Making Of – Part 2: Top, Scarf and Whistle

Aaand finally another making of part! Yay!
This time I’m going to write about her top, her scarf and the whistle she wears around her neck.
Again, I don’t have that much pictures. I’m sorry, I always forget to take more than I do normally…

Anyway, if you haven’t read Part 1 of the Hikari-Making-Of, feel free to do so. I also have a page with more information about the costume and her character, including the links to each and every link to the making of parts.

Okay, so let’s get started.

First of all I found this fabric at a local fabric market. I bought it twice (it was a special offer – 2 pieces of fabric for… I don’t know, cheap enough), since I wanted it to use for another costume as well (Honoka [Dancing Stars On Me]).

After that I looked for buttons I can easily cover with fabric – and that was basically the first thing I did:

Tadah! I had finished buttons.

Hikari Yagami, Making Of – Part 1: Wig and Make Up

Kari is a character who is very dear to me. I always liked her, loved her Digimon Tailmon (and all evolutions) and light is something I always could refer to myself – I love the light, especially the sunlight, and anime taught me in my young ages that you shouldn’t loose the light and fait in youself.
Thanks to all this I wanted to cosplay her for a long time! And by the time you read this, this costume is already done and worn at least 3 times. And there are at least 2 more times to follow.

I really love this costume and after all this talk it is time to start the project! Wuuuhu!

First of all let me tell you a bit about the wig.
I don’t know why, but I didn’t take enough pictures. The process was simple, though.

I got the wig through a friend of our Sora (who is also my Jack Frost). She sold it and since I thought the color was quite fitting for Kari I bought it right away.
