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.
It is finally time to talk about my plans I have for 2017!
If it interests you, feel free to read this blogpost. If you’re here for a character specific blogpost, why not read the last one I posted? Just click here.
Warning: There will be a lot of text! If you don’t want to read everything, you could just take a look at the pictures if you want to! 🙂
Let’s start with the fixed plans: the conventions I’m visiting including the costumes I will wear that time. I only have two conventions I’ll be going to 100% this year and one “maybe-convention”. These will be the following ones:
May 20th; Düsseldorf, Germany
I haven’t been to the Japanday in costume the last few years, so I decided to try it out again. I will probably wear the Yukata Hikari Yagami wears in Digimon Adventure Tri together with a friends as Sora Takenouchi. Although I won’t sew a new Yukata! I will wear the one I bought in Japan which looks similar to the one she wears in the movie.
June 3rd & 4th; Düsseldorf, Germany
If I can get it done, I want to wear Ladybug (Miraculous) on saturday with a friend as Chat Noir, a miraculous-inspired Ballgown for the cosplay-prom and Tharja with a gigantic Fire Emblem Awakening/Fates group on sunday.
I am thinking about visiting the Connichi in Kassel, Germany, which takes place from september 22nd to 24th. I am allowed to sleep over at a friend’s place, but I cannot say for sure if I will attend the convention. I’m not sure if I have enough time or money at that time yet. I am also not sure which costumes I should wear.
Hey there! The new year has finally started and I hope you had an awesome start into 2017!
New year, new luck! … as I like to say. Normally, to have new luck, you are thinking about the past year(s) and try to think of new and better ways to survive the upcoming one. And what is a good way to do so? Exactly, New Year’s Resolutions!
Although I did not post resolutions for 2016, I really want to start doing so. I love cosplaying and sewing, so why not make a list only for cosplay-related resolutions?
The first things I want to mention do seem to be not related to cosplay at all. But they are, more or less, because it affects my time for working on costumes.
So 2017 is THE year! I will graduate from university in summer and I still need to write my bachelor thesis, so I obviously cannot work on costumes as much as I want. Too bad… But I really need to get this done properly. After graduating I want to find a good job and save up some money for a few things, including a new and better sewing machine and a nice camera. And I hope I can somehow accomplish that.

I also want to start going to the fitness center, at least once a week, to get in shape. Yes, this is a very crucial resolution! If I want to shoot a lot of things and especially wear Ladybug in spring or summer this year, I need to be ready. And I want to do that. For that purpose I even created the hashtag #roadtomiraculous, to motivate myself!
And now… moving on to directly cosplay – related resolutions.
