So in response to my last journal here and the answers and my favorite works from the askers!
asked What’s your favorite anime and manga?
My favorite manga right now is probably Nana to Kaoru. I love it more than words can say. Anime wise maybe Martian Successor Nadeisco or Flame of Recca. Its hard to pick but both of those have a special place in my heart.
asked What’s your favorite TF2 hat?
Team captain hnnnggggg! So sexy :3 Not that I don't love the pot but I'd be lying if I said otherwise. I had a sweet tyrolean once upon a time too
asked Will you be doing an Ikaros or Nymph cosplay from the anime Heavens Lost Property?
I haven't watched that yet but I do like Nymph's design. When I have some time I'd like to watch it and would definitely debate making that outfit! Ikaros is a bit boobtastic for me to pull off XD
asked Why do you like the Touhou Project?
I really love how unique and varied the characters are. So many personalities and designs that really appeal to me. I also love the fanbase. They come up with some of the best fanart of any fandom anywhere, make the funniest videos, come up with dances and make some great memes. I've made quite a few friends through mutual love of Touhou which helps it keep a special place in my heart
asked are you planning to do any more LoL cosplay?
I love Ahri and she is the main character I play but I cannot figure a way to do the tails that I really like the final project. I have a lot of issues with most of the cosplay tails I've seen as they are photoshop, require standing against a wall or just hang which just is the wrong feel to me. I'd like to make bear cavalry Sejuani this winter but I'm not sure where I would squeeze it in with all my projects. I'd love to make fiddle too....
asked Will you try to cosplay some characters from the 14th game of the Touhou Project?
I actually already made Sekibanki, I just don't have any pictures yet.... I honestly would love to make all the designs from that game but its a matter of having time you know? Hopefully I can do a shoot in that costume soon
Seija would most likely be the next one for me to make from 14.
asked Is there a particular costume that you are very proud of?
My Empress C.C. was the first really large detailed costume I ever made. I resin casted jewels, sewed on beads and appliqued on all of the crazy gold designs. I really love how it turned out but sadly it was before the time of good photographers and photoshoots so I don't have many pictures :<
8. :iconbigbossbigneko: asked which cosplay is your signature favorite?
For signature costume I'd say I'm best known by my soldier costume or Ibara Kasen... I've worn both quite a few times and gotten really big responses to them and recognition
asked Do you have any cosplay idols or people who inspire you?
I really admire
. They are very beautiful and talented young ladies who I aspire to be like. Kana and Calssara share similar taste in Anime and Video Games while Kamui is a prop goddess who is actually willing to share her knowledge about crafting and has really shaped the community in how they make armor.
asked If you could pick any book to turn into a television series or movie, which one?/why?
This Perfect Day by Ira Levin. It's just a really fantastic story I'd like more people to read and in an age where few people read the best medium to make them see it is through a movie. The author wrote Rosemary's Baby and Stepford Wives which both did decently well in the theaters so I suspect it would do well especially given its 1984 type themes which are popular right now. I love me some dystopian fantasy.
asked If you could meet and talk with any character from any anime, manga, or videogame, who would it be, and why?
I think right now that would have to be the count from Gankutsuou. He's a really fascinating guy and I'm sure he could hold up his end of a conversation.
asked Are you going to Katsucon next year?
100% yes! Wouldn't miss it for anything
asked Would you like to make new photo shoots of your Mou-chan Cosplay?
I would love to! I really love Ryomou and I made some adjustments to the outfit to make everything look better and it would be nice to have more pictures I dumped so much time into patterning...
asked How did you get into cosplay?
My mom is an engineer who worked with a bunch of Trekkies who told her about the existence of conventions and that people dressed up for them. Being an awesome mom who bought me Animerica which was the coolest thing ever at that time she took me to my first convention as I think Android 18 from Dragon Ball Z and I just went nuts. What can you expect of a 12 year old anime fan XD She made my first few costumes and taught me the basics of sewings and I just went on from there. Here we are 14 years later... LOL
asked What has been your game of the year so far?
Bioshock Infinite 100%. Being fair I haven't really played much else I didn't get on steam sales but nothing else really ever had a shot with me. It's just such a well thought out universe with great gameplay and storyline. I love exploring every corner, picking up voxophones to listen to everyone's stories and obsessively trying to get every achievement :3
asked Are you going to cosplay Alice from Madness returns.?
I want to play the game before making it but the design really appeals to me. There was a really fabulous Alice at Youmacon I was oogling this year :3 I played the first Alice game back in the day so I really should hurry up and purchase Madness returns.... I have a feeling once I play I will have to make her!
Thank you everyone for participating! For those of you not featured this time around I will do this in a few months and will try to include you then
I hope you enjoy the art of all these talented people!
