I saw the picture of your trophies and noticed both first place and second place ones. Do you two sort of keep a 'score' of these things? And if so, are the both of you sort of at the same amount of prizes or is one of you winning more then the other? And how do you deal with that? It also seems like Sophie is doing more solo competitions then Liza, right? XD

We don’t really keep a score because our cosplays are always team projects. If one is doing a solo entry, there’s a big chance we’ve still both worked for it, so a win for her is a win for me. :)

I think Liza was a little ahead in the amount of solo’s she’d done (she’s done most of her solo competitions abroad), but I’m rapidly catching up now with the Eurocos prelims and finals. Usually when one is competing the other is the helper, so it’s not like either of us would suddenly have a lot of compo’s to their name without the other knowing/consenting. I personally prefer duo and group competitions though, it’s just more fun, but I’m very much looking forward to the Eurocos finale. :)

- Sophie

(also, Liza insisted I put this picture here because it illustrates the feeling of winning together, which is basically the best feeling ever. :) We are sitting on the left smiling -and crying in my case- at each other like idiots )

Have you 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 *__*
