Have ever had that feeling where you just instantly fall in love with a character, you just can’t help yourself and the feeling doesn’t go away over time either?

And you say to yourself “No, bad self” and your cosplay partner says “definitely NO, look at that insane costume” and you just go “I know, but..”

Dammit, Anise. Dammit, Dawn of Mana. I love this game. My heart, and wallet are crying.

Costume. I need it. ;__; <3

Have u ever looked at your list of prizes in cosplay competitions and thought "damn, Im/we're GOOD at this!" No? Because u should.

Dear anon, every morning I walk past my windowsill, where after two years it is kinda getting cluttered with trophies (and Ezio x’D) and every day it brings a smile to my face <3

Cosplay is the perfect pastime, 10/10 would recommend to everyone

Hello! Congratulations with winning the preliminaries in Netherlands. Good luck in the EuroCosplay finals! I hope there will be a live stream once again!

Thank you so much! :D I’m really looking forward to going to London and meeting all the amazing other participants.

MCM Expo has had a couple of livestreams over the years so I’m pretty sure they will (if at all possible) :3

So I got some pictures of my Commander Shepard costume! :D The weekend was great, I got some cool reactions and people saluting me in the hallways and randomly singing “You can fight like a Krogan, run like a leopard..” which was great! <3

I also entered the Eurocosplay preliminaries and ajhsjsjfje I WON *__* I’m sooo unbelievably happy and honoured to go there, it’s a long time dream come true! I saw the finals live in 2011 and ever since then I’ve been dreaming to go.. so.. omg :’)

The irony does not escape me that Shepard’s final destination is London x’D

Materials are Durafoam and Plastiform by Minque

Time for another Commander Shepard update :D

Slowly but surely all the pieces of armor have come together and now I’m just putting on the final touches of weathering and straps and clips to make it all wearable. I’ve also finally finished my Omni-tool, which was made from acrylic sheets and then cut with a laser and shaped with heat. It was an …adventure, to say the least, but it works! :D (the blade is foldable, so I won’t have to stab any eyes out x’D)

Last image is my latest make up test because I’m Renegade4life and I needed to test my Rigid Collodion to see if I could make some nice looking scars ;)

One more day to go *__*

Gamescom 2014 is over but I had a BLAST. &lt;3
When I read that ArenaNet would have a stand at Gamecom I just utterly freaked out. This game means so much to me and to have an opportunity to meet the developers would just be a dream come true!
When we (after some searching, because Gamescom is massive) arrived there, I got cold feet for a second, but after I gathered all my courage I went up to them and chatted a little bit. It was so amazing, I was shaking in my boots haha xD
After a while I just took a deep breath and told them that because I loved this game so much, we made some cosplays and I had a businesscard with me with a picture of the Sylvari costumes. I gave it to him, and basically I was just kinda babbling like &#8216;uuhh yeah I&#8217;d just like you to have it, thank you for making such an awesome game, and uhh uhhh' and then he took it from me and instantly was all like 'Oh my god, Caithe and Faolain. Wait, I saw this movie on youtube - are you..?' and then I was jumping up and down like YES THAT WAS ME I WAS THAT FAOLAIN OMG THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE
He said the costumes were awesome (omfg ;__; tears of happiness) and then he was all &#8216;Here, follow me, oh, what is your shirt size?&#8217;
Now I have a GW2 shirt and the accompanying memory that I will treasure forever. &lt;3
I thiiiink I wanna go back to Gamescom next year, maybe even bring a costume! :D (the con in itself was awesome by the way, even though queues were like 4+ hours the atmosphere was just so overwhelming and cool x3)
BUT THEY KNEW ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
AAAAHHH :&#8217;D
