1st: Conventions

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:

conplanner-japantag-2017

Japanday 2017
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.

conplanner-dokomi-2017

Dokomi 2017
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.

New Year’s Resolution 2017

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.

Although there were a lot of good things that happend in 2016, I’m glad that it finally ends. All in all this year was one of my worst years. Nevertheless I am happy about every experience I got – be it good or bad ones.

I have a few things planned for 2017 and I will write a New Year’s Resolution blogpost about this topic soon! If you’re interested in that: stay tuned! ❤

Until then: Stay sparkly!
