A 2017-Cosplay-Recap!

Since 2017 is over now and I did some more costumes last year than the years before, I wanted to give you a little year-recap of my costumes, photoshoots and cosplay-achievements 2017.

I managed to make six new costumes last year. two and a half of these are selfmade, one was sponsored and the otheres are bought together more or less. Here is an overview of my cosplay-year 2017:

Cosplay Overview 2017 – Nikasparkle

The first two (from upper left to right) are my Hikari Yagami costumes from Digimon Adventure Tri. Since she’s wearing the same uniform except for her top in winter and summer, I used the same skirt. That’s why I count these as 1,5 costumes. Here is the project, if you’re interested.

The third one is Hikari Yagami from Digimon Adventure Tri in her Yukata. She wears one in the second movie where they go to the onsen (hot spring). I bought the yukata in Japan and loved it from the beginning. It’s not exactly the same as in the movie, but I loved wearing it either way. Since I bought it I don’t have a project for this costume. If you want to know more about the wig please take a look at the uniform project from Hikari which is linked above. Eitherway, here is a side by side picture for you.

Forth is my Marinette Dupain-Cheng Ballgown from Miraculous Ladybug. I designed the gown myself and although this may not be recognized as Marinette without knowing, I really think it suits her character. I loved wearing the dress and it’s definately one of my favourite sewn clothes in 2017. Here is her project (in progress) and a side by side picture.

New Year’s Resolution 2017 – Results

After posting my first cosplay-related New Year’s Resolution this year, which you can read by clicking here, I have some results for you now! What are resolutions and plans if you cannot complete these, right? The year is coming to an end now and I have to say that I couldn’t accomplish everything I wanted, but I did my best.

As always the year went by really fast. I still remember thinking about my resolutions for 2017… and now it’s almost 2018. There will be resolutions for the upcoming year as well, I will link it here as soon as it goes live.

So what where my goals for this year?

First of all I wanted to graduate from university. And I did that. I officially have a bachelor’s degree: bachelor of arts in asian studies and japanese language. I still remember finishing school a few years ago… wow. Sadly I couldn’t find a good job and save up some money. That’s because I started with my new studies in october instead of searching for a job. I have a side job now and do save most of the money I get, but that’s not exactly what I had planned in the beginning of 2017. If you want to know what I started this year, feel free to read this small post here. With the saved up money I wanted to buy a better sewing machine and a camera. I was able to get a sewing machine! I love it and it’s way better than excepted… But I haven’t bought a camera yet. There are a few other things I need to save up money for first. But this will be something I want to accomplish in 2018!

Cosplay Music Video: Takari (Digimon) – Did I Mention CMV

Hey there! It’s been a while since I last uploaded anything on YouTube.. Sorry for that! My studies for voice acting started recently and I had a lot to do and will even more the upcoming months. I hope to upload some dubs as well somewhen soon! Stay tuned for this ;).

And without further ado, here is my new YouTube upload:

My friend Jolien and I had a lot of fun filming this video! It was a rather spontaneous idea and I’m super happy we did it! I had even more fun cutting and editing this video and I was constantly thinking about how I can make it even more hilarious. I hope you have fun watching it as well! <3

(And again, a little disclaimer: Digimon belongs to Toei Animation and the song Did I Mention belongs to Disney’s Descendants. This is just for fun and without commercial thought. Thank you!)

Last but not least:

Would you be interested in more CMVs (Cosplay Music Videos)? What kind of cosplay-related videos would you like to see? <3

See you next time and thank you for watching!
