“So as long as you and your friends carry good luck charms shaped like it, nothing can ever drive you apart. You will always find your way back to each other. An unbreakable connection!” I admittedly watched the first few seconds of the opening (on mute lmao) just to see my best kids and just ahhhh ;-; MONTH AND A HALF FAM WE’RE SO CLOSE. Just like by the time MAG rolls around we have less than a month left. Just let these sweet beans be happy okay 👏🏻❤️ 📷 @madster.photo / ⭐️ - Winterwish (Etsy)
2018 cosplays ❤️ This year felt like it just zoomed by! The first half of the year was a little rough after MAG cause I was just so burnt out and then I had to tackle Momo (who I love but who was a nightmare to construct). Then Musashi and Luna both couldn’t be finished which caused a lot of disappointment in myself and my abilities. We took things fairly easy for the rest of the year since I bought Rinoa and remade Aqua in that time frame haha I hit a really really low point with my weight before Colossal but since then lost ten - fifteen pounds (it fluctuates lol) so I’m really feeling much better for MAG this year!
Overall though this year brought me some of my all time favorite costumes and I can’t help but be so thankful for it ❤️ We were awarded such a high honor for our craftsmanship on some of those favorite costumes, and I think all our experiences this year really brought back some love and passion that was lost in our hard burnout. We got to be a part of so many amazing groups this year too! Those were for sure highlights ❤️ I’m so excited for the things we have planned next year too ❤️ we’re trying to keep what we learned about how we work and operate, how we enjoy cons in mind as we plan but we have some great things set up (including finishing Musashi and Luna and more KH of course 😂) So see you 2018! Onto starting 2019 with a ton of fun and photoshoots at MAGfest 👏🏻❤️ 📷 vissicijuice (Saber), Images by JC (Hilda), Robert Tate Photography (Futaba, Rinoa, Mashu), Madster Photo (Yona, Momo Swim), Danielle C Photography (Momo), Fruity Cakely (Aqua Swim), FX Dandy (Jeanne Alter), Lacee_girl (Medb), Sassmaster Rachel (Rin)
Jason gave me this beautiful cosplay for Christmas 😭❤️ I didn’t think he was getting it so I was totally surprised! Pardon the wrinkles and lack of make up haha ITS SO PRETTY AHHH I can’t wait to wear it at Yeticon ❤️ Costume - @uwowo_cosplay
Futaba was my Christmas present from Jason last year ❤️ I got Mashu’s kimono and hakama as an early Christmas present last night! (He just shared the picture so I’ll share it again in a few days❤️) I was so surprised because I didn’t think he was getting it for me ;-; ayyyy first Yeticon costume finished 😂 📷 @robert.tate.photography
The highlight for Aqua is all set up ❤️ I got so many messages about it as I was posting the progress pictures it made me so happy ;-; I hope they can help someone looking to craft or just curious about the craftsmanship.
Jason took this adorable selfie at Youmacon after our judging and I just loved it haha ❤️ Going back through all the early progress pictures from last year of her just made me so happy! It really reminded me of the joy I had working on her and wearing her too.
It’s so easy to get caught up in well this cosplayer does it so much better than me why should I bother or I worked so hard why didn’t I get many likes when this person got hundreds, I’m completely guilty of it haha but we do what we love, what makes us happy, what makes us proud. Jason always reminds me to look at the pictures, look at the memories whenever I feel not good enough. I see this simple picture but in it I see two characters and cosplays I love, with the person I love looking absolutely fantastic and all the happiness to be wearing them and enjoying the con. That’s all that really matters ❤️
I remember the water was so warm and it was so nice it be in 😂 I can’t wait for winter to be over and bring back some warm weather ❤️ (shhhh I know it’s barely been one month of winter 😂) 📷 @karamelphotography
“The three of us, will always be one.” I can’t believe we’re under the two month mark! Honestly just save these three good kids okay, it’s all I want, it shouldn’t be too much to ask for 😂 I’m of course super excited to see everything 3 has in store for us but I’m most excited to see these kids finally get a happy ending ;-; ❤️ 📷 @madster.photo - swipe to see all the lovely full pictures ❤️
This costume is almost a year old and I can’t believe it. Where did the time go? It’s nearly a month till MAG and we have so much to do 😂 Thankfully we have a week off next week for a stay home vacation and almost the whole week leading up to MAG off SO we should be good haha 📷 @images_by_jc
🎶Darling, so there you are with that look on your face. As if you're never hurt, as if you're never down. Shall I be the one for you🎶
One of my favorite pictures from the shoot ;-; I just love how it looks so much and that Jason was holding me the whole time, his expression ❤️ I can’t wait to shoot these sweet beans at MAG! 📷 @robert.tate.photography
“I won’t give up!” The wig still needs some work but I couldn’t resist doing a costest when my wig came in today! I’m still working out the makeup too haha but I’m so excited to cosplay Uraraka ❤️ I didn’t think I would cosplay her but I really fell in love with her the farther I got in the series. Ready to float things and throw up 😂❤️ Wig - @ardawigs Inigo in Chocolate Brown
Happy 2nd year anniversary to my sweet Final Fantasy XV ✨❤️ A perfect game it’s not, but I can’t begin to express how much joy it’s brought me and how many treasured memories I have from it and cosplaying from it ❤️ I love the characters so much, their beauty and their flaws. I’m so excited to get back on Kingsglaive Luna after MAG because I miss cosplaying her ;-; then maybe do one last new one for summer ;3 📷 @madster.photo
“I try to catch up, but it's no use... How far is everyone going? I can't hear anyone... Once I catch up, I wonder... Is everyone safe? Will they welcome me with open arms? ......Is everyone ok? Will we all make it back together?” One of the things I related to about Rinoa was her feeling of being the outsider in a group of old friends but wanting so bad to be a part of everything. Ahhhh my sweet girl I love her so much ;-; 📷 @multiversecosplay
I told you I’m not running out of KH pictures yet 😂 I was going to post all three together but I liked these so much I wanted to share them separately!
I was so nervous I forgot to cheat out in every pose but whatever it’s been over a decade 😂 Jason did so good for never having stepped foot on a performance stage before I’m so proud of him ;-; For those who don’t know I spent almost half my life as a stage actress! It was both thrilling and nerve wracking to go back even for the brief like 30 seconds lmao It was much better than I anticipated though! I’m so glad we both decided to stick it out to do the walk on ❤️ 📷 OOC Photography
“I’ll do my best to help senpai.” One of my favorite shots of Mashu! I felt so cute as her and with one swimsuit she became one of my favorite Fate ladies to cosplay ❤️ I’m so excited to do more versions of her next year! 📷 @robert.tate.photography
it’s not much but man it feels good to finish something I can wear for her! Still needs a lot of work but the base of the skirt is done in the least. I made it a little wider cause I somehow have to not flash everyone 😂
Also this is without the belts and I already make a ton of noise so my group will never lose me lmao
