Cosplay Resume

I’d just like to share my compilation of Cosplays since the first time I entered the hobby.

It has grown into me and taught me a lot as well.

2008

Category: Original Fashion / C
Completed: 100 % Cosplay group: no First worn at: ToyCon 2008
Inspiration: I’ve always wanted to go as a cross between a ninja girl and a butt-kickin’ sexy samurai! I remember wearing a semi-kimono (Yuna inspired) gown for my 18th debut and the idea of re-creting into a costume of my comic’s main character, Kasai was just perfect!
Favorite aspect: the concept itself was my favorite part. i didn’t expect such a costume thought of out of thin air could actually look good!
Hardest task/aspect: finding the weapon.. my costume might have taken a day, but finding a cool weapon to go w/ it was difficult. It was my first time to cosplay and i didn’t want to spend so much!
Costume maker: i forgot her name, but she made the original gown
Photographer: my cousin

Category: Game Series
Completed: 99 % Cosplay group: no First worn at: Cosply Mania 2008
Inspiration: My best friend was going as Rinoa Heartilly, so naturally as her partner-in-crime I went as cheerful free-spirited Selphie as her back to back buddy. Plus, Selphie has always been my favorite FF character so it wasn’t a problem!
Favorite aspect: the costume overall. i knew what fabric to find, the weapons to improvise and the accessories to wear!
Hardest task/aspect: definitely the hair! i had several tests and every one of them failed me.. ah well, in the last minute fortunately. i’ve managed to keep retain its glory till half of the event.
Costume maker: P.Calipes, my officemate (he’s a natural pattern maker and tailor)
Photographer: my boyfriend
Other photo information: the background sucks, but it is the only full profile i have of the costume. i’ll re-do another photoshoot for this Selphie next time and upload it here too!

Completed: 100 % Cosplay group: none First worn at: home.. for a trial shoot
Inspiration: I\’ve always adored Sakura from Card Captors. But I was worried of not having to achieve that sweet childish look since i\’m not that young for it. Then TRC came out in stores, the net, in paper.. I knew I just had to be \”that\” older version of Sakura. My cousin even pushed me to do her~
Favorite aspect: Finding Mokona haha! and the thrill of wearing the costume in its completion!
Hardest task/aspect: the blue stones for Sakur’s costume.. X_x
Costume maker: P. Calipes, my officemate and Sir Jo, my tailor

Completed: 99 % Cosplay group: FF family First worn at: Pairing photoshoot
Inspiration: The character\’s dress actually inspired me to make a version for myself so I could wear it on my 18th birthday. Years after, I wore this again for a photoshoot and modified the dress to look as close as the character as possible. Many also commented how I suit her very much~! *blush*
Favorite aspect: Of the dress: Painting the cherry blossoms.
Of the theme: Doing the character\’s trademark poses.. it was fun~!
