Long time no write! Anyways, I have been to FACTS 2012 and in one word, it was: AWESOME
I didn't go all out on the costumes because there was no real time to do so but I got to wear my True Blood waitress outfit and Lady Lionheart's her Lara Croft and Jill Valentine outfit.
Tomb Raider is always a big hit but I was suprised to see that people recognized my True Blood costume. Jill Valentine is relatively unknown apparently but I had fun browsing the fair while staying unnoticed for once
FACTS itself was the usual really, no real changes besides the layout of the convention ground that was more compact but bigger nonetheless. Had some good conversations during the weekend with manager Sean Clark, actor Sean Patrick Flanery and also with actor Ian White. Norman Reedus was also present and I got his autograph. Ofcourse some pictures with all the abovementioned people were taken (some even twice)
Janina Gavankar was also around who plays Luna in the True Blood series so it was quite nice to have a picture with her as well!
Overall the weekend was quite entertaining and less stressful because of the lack of complicated costumes! I am already looking forward to next year.
Enjoy the new photos

So the castlefest was a great succes! It was so nice to see everyone again after such a long time of absence I am so happy I was able to do this again.
A lot of photographer friends took time to take some pictures of me, even though I didn't make a new costume but combined my stuff. I was quite pleased with the result <3
Ow and I also had my moments of fame at the castlefest. They let me do an interview!!!! It aired on television as well but I didn't see it. My colleagues apparently did and said it was funny to see me dressed up talking about costumes and fairs
I uploaded the pictures of my Steampunk Costume in a new folder ^^ Hope you like it <3
I am now working on my new cosplay that needs a lot of attention. It is not an elaborate costume but it has some tricky parts. I want to finish it before Abunai so I can join the group together with my friends Lady Lionheart and Aotenshi.
Stay tuned for more pics soon!!

Hey cosplay fans!
I once again haven't posted in a while but I wanted to let you know that I have been to Animecon2012 with my friends and we did a Highschool of the Dead groupcosplay. It was a wonderful experience and the weather was fantastic. The pictures we got from our photographer friends turned out great and I put some online for you to see!
The next two events will be Castlefest 2012 and Abunai 2012. We shall wear the Highschool of the dead costume to Abunai again as my friend Aotenshi will be our 5th member. She couldn't attend at animecon because she won the 2nd place and will go to the ECG cosplay summit at Japan Expo. I am looking forward to the good times I will have at the convention!
Castlefest is still far away and I haven't really thought about things to wear. I have some wings laying around and my steampunk outfit that I can once again re-use. We shall see what the weather does.
On related news: I have attended the Japanmarkt 2012 at the Sieboldhuis. Leiden. I wore my alternative outfit of Umineko (Siesta Sister bunny) and I will also attend the Museumnacht event at the Sieboldhuis. What I will wear remains a mistery but it will be something I have worn befor or perhaps a combination of older things
Also, I will soon do my first kimono shoot at the Japanese Gardens of Clingendael with my photographer friend Qsimple. I hope it will be a great succes but rest assured I will post pictures!

happy 2012 and may all your wishes come true I have had a rough couple of weeks behind me and am still very busy with sorting my stuff and getting my life back on track but I am pleased to say that I am sort of planning some new projects for the future.
I am hoping to attend the Elf Fantasy Fair once again this year and Animecon/Abunai/FACTS. Ofcourse I might go to other fairs/events but these are the ones I am fairly sure about
I cannot say a lot about the upcoming projects as I am unsure if I am even able to finish those but atleast I am hoping to present some new costumes/photos in the near future.
I closed last year with the xmas shoot together with my dear friend Aotenshi and had a lot of fun so ofcourse I will try to do some shoots as well this year. Nothing planned but I am fairly sure it will happen!
Stay tuned and I hope you will enjoy the pictures

Hello hello ^^
It has been a VERY long time since you last heard from me but here I am to tell you a litle bit about the coming plans and last conventions.
Abunai 2011 was a great succes Had lots of fun meeting up with my friends, helped my two good friends Lady Lionheart and Aotenshi with the preperation for the cosplaycompetition. Due to time/money issues I wasn't able to join in with any epic new design but it was a joy to see them perform on stage! I am very proud of what they were able to accomplish in such a short time <3
Castlefest was also a nice event for me to attend again. However I wasnt able to make anything new and was helping my friend with her store there so I just upgraded my steampunk costume with a new corset and new goggles and did some photoshoots with a few photographer friends
As for me, I have been so busy and besides that I had a last minute holiday with my good friend Lady Lionheart so I have been out if it! University has started once again, exams were looming and so on. F.A.C.T.S 2011 is coming up in Belgium and I was supposed to have my xmen costume done but I have decided to finish that one for another time as I am going to focus on other stuff *like my work and thesis* BUT no worries, new ideas are always present so I won't hesitate to share them with you! Besides, I will be wearing some classic costumes while I am present at F.A.C.T.S
Some photoshoots are planned but I am unsure what I will be wearing then and maybe just maybe I might have something coming up by the end of the month but for now it stays unknown/a secret

Hello my dear followers!
So after the Elf Fantasy Fair was over (it was great but i did not wear a new costume), me and the girls (Maddox, Lady Lionheart and Aotenshi) decided it would be fun to go to the Animecon2011. We weren't able to go the previous year but as cosplay lovers we really wanted to be there!
So we decided it would be fun to do a cute group cosplay by the name of the Siesta Sisters, from the anime "Umineko no naku koro ni"
It was a huge success and I think we looked so cute and tough at the same time I am hoping to wear the costume some more with the girls but for now this will do. The pictures were taken by Kees Peters (aka Mafkees) and I think he did a wonderful job with capturing all the colours.
Animecon2011 was full of fun times with the rave party and the cosplay however the weekend was over way to soon. So we decided to go to another cosplay event that we did attend last year called "Abunai 2011"
Rooms are booked, tickets are already bought and new exciting cosplay projects are on the way!! So stay tuned.
Confirmed events for this year will be:
Midsummer fair Archeon (victorian style or some other older costume)
Castlefest (probably something Steampunkish)
Abunai 2011 (new group cosplay...game based)
F.A.C.T.S 2011 (new group cosplay...comic/movie based)
I hope you stay tuned for more!!

Hey my dear cosplaylovers
well I haven't died of schoolstuff and IRL things yet so I am doing fairly well. Last February I had a photoshoot with my dear friend Aotenshi. Just a casual shoot where we wore different outfits but one of them was the alternative version of Karren/CC and that really was awesome to do!! I haven't received many pictures yet but the few I had I put on here so you guys can see. The photographer was Gwenny Ruiz and he really knows his tricks! pics turned out so great I like them a lot!!
The cosplay season is going to start next month and from there on more fairs and conventions will pop-up. Normally this would be the time of the year that I am making new stuff to wear at said conventions/fairs, however money/time is the real issue that prevents me from doing that U_U
I am however going to the fairs to atleast have a feeling I participated this year maybe I will dig up some older costumes or I will try to combine something to create something new either way I will try to look my best!!!
So I will go to the Elf Fantasy Fair 2011 for 2 days, however the first day I will be helping my good friend Lady Lionheart sell her victorian/steampunk stuff --> check her site: www.victoriandreams.nl
And on the 2nd day I will just walk on the fair grounds checking everything and everyone out ^^ dunno what I will wear
Ofcourse Midsummer Fair Archeon and Castlefest I want to go to this year but those seem pretty far away with all the stuff that I need to finish the coming 2,5 months! I also had planned a *cosplay* trip abroad but from the looks of it that will be cancelled >.< Instead I might just go to the Animecon 2011 for 1 day and also Abunai 2011 as that was loads of fun last year.
So stay tuned for more pics!!

Happy 2011!! My new year has been a blast was able to cosplay and be part of an epic new years mafia party ^^ really it was the best!!
For more information check "La Famiglia"
Well I know I have been a little bit inactive with costumes lately. Real life is kinda taking its toll on my cosplay hobby so I have no clue wat 2011 is going to bring. I must say 2010 was a great succes when it comes to all the costumes that I have worn but ofcourse it would be great to actually do that again this year !!
I have met a lot of interesting people, was inspired by them and learned a great deal. Made new contacts and realized I have still a long way to go before I achieve the ultimate cosplay.
I am hoping to show you all more cosplay fun the coming months so stay tuned! Shoots are planned for April and May with different photographers And ofcourse the usual events like Elf Fantasy Fair, Archeon, Abunai, F.A.C.T.S 2011 and Castlefest are planned!!

Hey hey my dear followers
I figured it would be best to let you all know what I have been working on/will be working on in the near future
The 6th-8th of August it was Castlefest time! The event of the year for me..I always live towards the new castlefest and once it is over I am already anxious for the next Castlefest
This year I was part of the steampunk group with our own steampunk setting at the Steampunk Garden. I had loads of fun even though the weather was horrible on the 2nd day! Chilling in our own-built zeppelin made things worthwhile though hihi. Pictures of the steampunk costume I wore at the fair will be available as soon as I'm done ploughing through them hehe...there are just so many pretty ones taken by different people I don't know which to choose! But rest assured they will be on display here soon haha!
The next upcoming event for me will be the Abunai! 2010 edition 27th-29th of August I'm hoping to portray another new costume that is still kinda secret to the public. I will be part of a group together with my sister Maddox and my friend Lady Lionheart so stay tuned!
