Cosplay and whatnot Journey (Dec'09-Sept'12) by AkaiRizumu Cosplay and whatnot Journey (Dec'09-Sept'12) by AkaiRizumu
It's been one hell of a process!!!

There has been good times and bad experiences, but things are learnt from every experience. Thanks very much to :iconyasuukun: for being my partner after all these times, else cosplay wouldn't have been as fun!!! XDDD And to all of my friends i've known through cosplay, I LOVE YOU GUYS!!! And all the crazy things we do together hahaha!!! I feel that i am a bit of a pain to work with at shoots, so to :iconbiomonkz:, :iconvaxzone:, :iconfarizasuka:, i really appreciate everything you guys have done for the shoots!

Basically this is a short compilation of things that i've worked on for the past 3 years, for some cosplays i could go into deep detail about the experience, while some went by in a flash. I'm pretty sure that i'm improving on my costumes, my family even thought that a few of my latest costumes were bought!!! That made me so happy >/////< but I'm still a prop/armor idiot, i cant make props for nuts!!!
After my exams i hope to work on these things:
-playing with fabric textures
-more detailed work(lace, embellishments, etc)
-improving on prop-making
-sewing blindfolded
-posing and better facial expressions
-POCKETS (OMG THESE HORRIBLE THINGS)
-accurate pattern drafting

:iconhappyblueplz::iconhappyblueplz::iconhappyblueplz:DIY makes the world go round:iconhappyblueplz::iconhappyblueplz::iconhappyblueplz:

I really look forward to continue to improve on them, but that will have to wait for 2 more months. >.<

I'll be disappearing from the internet completely soon, and i'll be back on 16 Nov!
