So as evidenced by the fact I still have a Christmas image as my featured picture it is pretty self-evident that I am bad at updateing here.
I'm much much more frequent with my facebook page:
Anywho just a quick update of cosplay life's goings on:
I won the Cosplay World Masters qualifers at Iberanime with my Yuna wedding dress cosplay. YEY! I still don't know where or when teh finals will be though XD. You can find a video of my performance here: [link]
Marco Del Castello from Italy also qualified at Iberanime.
I ran my first cosplay worshop outside of the UK and I have since run my second international workshop at Animecon in the Netherlands.
In Holland I was part of a large group entered into a contest called Bordercos. Bordercos is a group cosplay competition being held at Anime 2013 in Holland. The catch is that the group has to be be made up of individuals of at least two nationalities! Well we managed that and more with our group of 10 people of 5 or 6 nationalities. We cosplayed from Final Fantasy Dissidia.
We arrived on friday night to find out we were the only group left in the competition as everyone else had dropped out! We had a small premature vistory celebration and then found out on Saturday though there was a last minute entry so we weren't alone. XD It was all in goo dfun and we just wanted to finally practice and perform the skit we had been planning for months!
A few people were still last minute sewing and some of us were helping them out. I certainly lost some sleep. But we practiced over and over on Saturday for our skit: CinderYuna, a retelling of Cinderalla with a Final Fantasy cast. I know it was filmed but the videos haven't been uploaded yet and I can't wait to see how we looked.
To cut a long story short we won Bordercos XD but the real vistory for us was getting to cosplay all together and put together a big performance piece.
