February is over ! [ 3 likes 14/03 ]

Hello, my dear Followers 

Haha - March is nearly over and I'm posting about February ( ಠ_ಠ) I promise the next [3 likes] will be in time >D
So I'm not waisting anymore time and just start right away :


I never really liked sewing but recently everything I tried worked out and I'm satisfied with my progress. Currently I'm really interested in challenges. Everytime I start a new costume my aim is to do it so well, I can shamelessly sell it after wearing it a few times 

2. Anime

I have to admit that I've never been so into Anime. I have always been more into manga. A reason might be the bad internet connection in the village I grew up ... ((;╥﹏╥;))~ even Youtube Videos took years to load ... but recently I really enjoy watching Anime. Haha it all started last year with Attack on Titan ♥ 
I just finished Noragami, which I liked a lot. I'm also into Kill la Kill, Yowamushi Pedal, Space Dandy and Cool-headed Hoozuki.

3. Mountains + Snow !

If you follow me on Twitter you might have already seen a few pictures of my trip to Switzerland ! It was my first time seeing so much snow and such beautiful mountains ~ I really loved the scenery !  I also enjoyed this years olympic winter games. Sadly the german team did not so well haha

LBM 2014 #Day 1

Hello (●°u°●)​ 」

Another post for today ! Just a few pictures about last weeks convention. We just went there without cosplay to check out the scenery and for buying some ... well .. lets call it 'unnecessary stuff'.

LBM is actually just a Bookfair, but this year they turned the whole comic/manga/anime part into a real convention ! I think they did a really good job with it ~

Thursday was very chilly. The weather was nice and everything felt so fresh and new 

The convention hall

Kyudo !

Alpaca >D 
I already have two, so I didn't buy another one.

haha what a nerdy girl with her purchases 

Attack on Titan Playset + Ultimate Madoka Nendoroid
spent way too much money. 
Sorry not Sorry.

First thing we did ... OTL


Sheryl Nome [AP] - Cosplay Progress

Happy Sunday 

Today I want to show you my Sheryl Nome Progress 
Hm... actually I wanted to make her "Northern Cross" Stage Outfit for LBM, but than I decided that for the first Con of the year I have to sew something bigger haha

It's not that I have a deep connection or affection towards this design, I just thaught that it'll be fun to sew and so I started to buy stuff. Due to university I just had one full week for working on it and so it was a tiny little bit stressfull. Like waking up : 8 hours sewing, eat, sleep. haha. But I made it in Time and I'm satisfied with the outcome. I don't know when to wear it again - maybe for a shooting ~ ~ ~ 

I think it's the first cosplay where sewing was more fun than wearing haha 
Currently I'm thinking about selling the whole outfit.

I couldn't find any fabric with matching pattern, so I just painted all the stripes by myself 8'D

Something I hate the most while sewing is the huge mass it leaves behind ... *sigh

1. layer of the skirt

I really enjoyed sewing the skirt - I hope I'll be able to do something similar in the future 

"pseudo"- corsage is finished ! 

90% finished cosplay -

and me wearing it on LBM-Saturday 

picture was taken by : Mio Pastel Raindrops

Kaname Madoka [鹿目 まどか] - Cosplay Progress

Good Evening Readers 

I wanted to post a collection of my progress pictures for a while now and I finally found some time to do so. I hope you find it a little bit interesting how I work on a costume. I never learned sewing properly and I'm still learning with every finished costume. In german we say : Pi x Daumen hahaha

But as the result turned out rather pretty I want to share these pictures with you. 

Madokas skirt all in all has 8 petals. Their size is defined by my hip measurement. 

I painted the petals with a soft sponge ... this is something which could have been better. Maybe it's better just too bleach the colour in the fabric, but I'm just a newbie to this kind of stuff ...

I love sewing Ribbons... I think these turned out pretty good 


On the right you can see 90% of the finished costume. I'll post new pictures with my new white skirt as soon as I've edited the ones we took on LBM Friday. As you can see my skirt wasn't able to handle my petticoat haha

Cosplay Page ♥


Good Evening my dear Followers !

The first Convention of 2014 is already over ! I had so much fun ! A few people asked me if I have a Cosplay Page on FB... hm... I'm not a big fan of Facebook, but I think it's a good way too keep in touch with people who don't use Animexx/Twitter/DeviantArt frequently. Same goes to people from other countries. 

I want to share links and progress pictures via facebook ~ so feel free to like my page for more cosplay related stuff. Oh and I'll post a report about last weeks convetion in the upcoming days~ so stay tuned
