Since the new trailer, I'm incredibly excited for Episode 8! 😄 Aby and I already bought tickets for a midnight screening, I can't wait! 😭💕
Also, I can't believe this photo is already one and a half year old. 😌

Aby is such a cute bean as Newt! 😭❤️
Fun story: when we took these pictures, one of our friends came over to greet me, and then asked me if Aby was around too.. no one recognized her. 😂
Also, I have no idea what the initial idea for this photo was, but probably something along the lines of "Wanna see my Niffler 😏?" Thank you @corvusdae for being our photographer <3

I finished my new light-up wand before Connichi, but I didn't have the time to put it up yet. 😐 This one has a matte finish I like so much better than the other. I also recorded the entire progress of building it this time and I'll put up a video tutorial later. 💕

Connichi was soo damn awesome and I'm happy that we were able to perform our Fantastic Beasts dream skit. ❤ this short clip features the Niffler machine(tm) 😂💦
Does someone recognize the song? 😏

Here's the holster for the blaster to be put back on the pants. Since I broke the original one off when I sat down too enthusiastically after the con ( thankfully after judging too, lol ), I needed to redo these anyway.
I decided to go with less accurate ones, but therefore, these are able to hold the blasters on my hips. I even put a little magnet in the lower half, so they'll be able to hold the blasters when breaking into spontaneous dance-offs. I saw someone selling these 3D printed, but decided that making them from sintra would work as well.

I repainted my old blasters for my Star-Lord cosplay! 😌 I bought the Hasbro nerf blasters back in 2014 for my first try on cosplaying Peter, but didn't bother to bring them to Japan Expo with me, because I couldn't use them in competition. That was also why I didn't bother crafting them myself - these are totally fine for cosplaying purposes and making a new ones myself seemed like a huge waste of time.
So, I took these apart, put a couple of magnets in the handle and gave them a ( rather sloppy, I admit ) repaint for the next con.

Aby and I will participate in the Connichi cosplay comp next week! :) It's gonna be on Friday, and I'm sooo excited, this is my dream skit I wanted to do since we first watched Fantastic Beasts. 😆 We also have no voice parts in them, so everyone should (hopefully) be able to understand what's going on - I hope someone will record it so I can post it online later. ❤

I don't really have anything new to show at the moment, Aby and I are working on our skit for the Connichi Cosplay Contest, and we're not making new costumes this year, so yeah.

This is actually one of my favourite Graves photos of me. I know, we don't know a lot about original!Graves, but if he survived, I imagine him to feel rather haunted, all the time. Be it by Grindelwald's constant presence or memories of the Obscurus. 👻

Also, can you guess where I got the edited hands from for this photo? Those are Aby's hands I took photos of when we did the Credence aes photoshoot prior to this one, haha. 💕

I honestly don't see Graves as the smoking cigarettes kind of guy, but rather as the moodily-drinking-whiskey-in-front-of-a-fireplace type of dude, but who am I to know. 💁
Also, it looked nice for the photo. ( fun story: I didn't even try to light the cig this time, I ended up all teary-eyed the last time we tried this for Poe, haha. so it's photoshop )

I repaired the Bowtruckle! 😆 he lost two leaves at the last convention (due to autumn) and I put a little wire into them to hopefully prevent this from happening again. 💧

If I had to name one thing I hated the most about making Graves outfit, it's his jacket. It was such a pain in the ass to sew, the fabric sucks and I should probably redo it, but I can't be arsed, haha. On top of that, he often doesn't even wear it underneath his coat when he visits Credence, so why bother? 😒

I almost forgot to share this one! 😨 here's a clip with us from the ECG 7 finals cosplay music video!
What you don't see in this video was that it we filmed outside and that it was about 33°C that day. 😰 now, I feel bad for complaining while standing next to my blue armored Kree friend, but apparently the heat fried my brain, and I forgot that this was a clip, not a photo or whatever. 😂💧
Let's just pretend Star-Lord doesn't need to strike a second pose, he beats Ronan's ass anyway. 😂 sorry for being awkward.

I never really had a photoshooting with Graves outside of conventions and we changed that today! 🙌
If you follow my InstaStory, you might have had a clue. 😆

I updated Poe's chestpiece box thing I currently can't remember the name of. 😧
When I first built it in 2016, I didn't know much about electronics and simply put the LED in, with some aluminum foil around the battery later, lmao.
Now that I have more knowledge about soldering and circuits though, I built in a proper battery holder and switch. Still looks a bit like shit, but better. 😂💧 #cosplay #cosplayersofinstagram #cosplayer

Two more favorites from the Credence aesthetic photoshoot with Aby. 😳
Anything dark!Credence hurts me so much, but I felt so inspired when I edited these. 😧

Sorry for the mini hiatus, I've not quite been myself the last days and slowly need to get back into the whole social media thing. Also, my smartphone broke, and it's a bit troublesome to be on Instagram with my old one, but I'll get around. 😦

However, I wasn't exactly lazy on the cosplay front, I guess. I edited all of the photos I took of Aby for the Credence aesthetics shoot I we did before our vacation, and I am truly satisfied with how they turned out. 😆 If you're interested in seeing the whole story, I'm putting it up a link in my bio.

Here's a first result from yesterday's homestudio photoshoot. I love Credence so much, I always wanted to shoot an aesthetics photoset with him and I'm so happy Aby agreed to model for me. 💕

@pasta_cosplay loves Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them so much and especially Mr. Graves and Credence of course ❤️ She has a killer Mr. Graves cosplay and I started working on a Credence cosplay but I didn't finish it because the character is so sad and I was afraid to end up having a bad time at the convention 😅 but when she suggested a Credence themed photoshoot and showed me references of where this would go, I was totally up for it!
I really love how these photos turned out - this is one of my favorites!

Because it was cut out of our stage video, here's a short clip of the helmet effect. 😆💧 I think there was just too much going on for the cameras to catch it right, but it was there, promise! ✌

Right now I'm not so sure what to do with the helmet, the effect is kind of cool, but only really good for stage, as it's not exactly screen accurate and I would feel a bit weird walking around the convention with it. 😕 Also, wearing the helmet is such a pain in the ass?? Maybe I'll just carry it around, putting the rainbow party mode code back in. 😒

Sorry for not being very active on here the last week, but I guess I needed some time to sort out my thoughts.
Japan Expo and ECG was such a huge adventure for me, so many impressions, so much stress, but so much fun as well, I don't even know where to begin! I probably can't even go into detail here, but @abyssinian_cosplay is currently writing up a short summary of each day of our ECG adventure on facebook, and if you're interested in more backstage stories, please go and read it. 😆

While I really don't want to dwell on the things that didn't go well too much, I feel like I should at least talk about our skit though.
It's a bit funny with contests, because you plan everything ahead for almost a year, you plan your costumes, your props, your skit, your audio, the effects you want to bring to stage, you spend so much time, money and effort into everything, but in the end, it comes down to those 2:30 minutes on stage.
My reason for competing in cosplay competitions is because I want to deliver a certain feeling to the audience, because that's why I thought I would like to try competing in the first place: I saw a video of a cosplay skit that almost brought me to tears, two years ago. Ever since then, I really just wanted to bring joy and entertainment to stage, to make people feel equally inspired and amazed!
However, with our most recent skit on the Ichigo stage, I am almost certain it comes off weird and parts just seem a little off, due to misunderstandings with the lightscript, and most likely our own inexperience in taking such a risk and relying on said lightscript so heavily in order to make our skit work.
I am mainly just sad we didn't manage to create the atmosphere we had in mind when we planned our skit and I hope it left no one disappointed too much while watching our video.

However, that is just such a small part of our amazing ECG journey, and I can't believe how many positive experiences I made, how much I learned along the way and how many new friends I made! I'm incredibly sad it's over, and moping about it for days now, making me wish that someday, we can come back and try again, bc being on that big stage totally rocked! 📷 by CoolADN

We're on our way to Paris! 🙃 Tonight, there's going to be a little get-to-know-each-other party for the participants, and everyone was asked to get dressed in comfortable costumes for that. Aby and I chose these, they are the most comfortable we have, and I also need just about an hour for make-up and getting dressed, that's so rare for me. 😅
Also, I made matching cufflinks for Gellert and Albus, because.. you know. <3

I want to cosplay Poe again, the urge is so strong since the last trailer, but tbh, he isn't completely suitable for summer conventions. 😅
This one was taken at SWCE last year at 30°C, I was dying and trying to look like a model at the same time, haha.
