Hello Everyone! Last Saturday I went to Cosplay Carnival with my dear friend Bhelle and CJ to meet and pursue our planned Touhou Project cosplay group. This time we met new fellow Touhou cosplayers and real avid fans 😀 Though Bhelle and I haven’t really played the game and have a little knowledge about it but we did research for our characters for that 😀 I went as Momiji Inubashiri and my friends as Aya Shameimaru and Marisa Kirisame Touhovania ver. (genderbend)
Hi everyone! It’s been a while. I know, I just got back from blogging but I suddenly went on hiatus for a month. Sorry XD So many things happen and I don’t know how to sort things out. So many things I wanted to blog but priorities are taking over. And my PC brokedown 🙁 I am using my mobile to edit my pictures and I suck but please bear with it XD So yeah, I am here again and I just want to share one of the activities I recently had 🙂
So I guess everyone has their own Halloween party right? We had one last October 28. The theme isn’t once again a scary theme because kids might get shock (but I don’t think so, they’re pretty much aware about scary stuffs nowadays) yeah, so the company was really concerned about that and so Non-scary themes at your service!
We went as Disney World. Other teams are Pokemon, Finding Dory, Kungfu Panda, Shrek, Lilo and Stitch and Neverland. Everyone was so all out and competitive. Turned out every cube was all well-prepared and designed 🙂
I was suppose to blog about this right after the con but was so dead tired and I’ve got work the day after so it got a bit late to blog XD But still it’s a must to blog everything because of my happiness and excitement XD Please be ready for a long, picture heavy blog post XD Ahahahaha!
So my friends (work colleagues) and I went to Cosplay Mania 2014 held in SMX Convention last October 5, 2014. This was already day 2 of the event. My original plan was to go on D-1 to buy merch but wasn’t able to do so due to work OT and the things need to be done for my cosplay 🙁 So everything was done on D-2.
I went as Freya Crescent (human ver.) from Final Fantasy IX. Been a fan of this game ever since (PS1 era) and got really an eye over Freya. Thankfully, got a chance to cosplay her with the help of my friends 🙂
This was planned a year ago. It was CosMania’13 that my friends decided to cosplay FF9 group. Originally, we are five but due to unexpected crisis and events, only three of us we’re able to do it. Too bad, it wasn’t really a FF9 group but it was okay since we did really had fun 🙂

We had (from left-right) Vivi, Freya, Wendy Marvel (Fairy Tail) and Zidane. The four of us we’re all together roaming around the area, looking for fellow workmates who went on that day. Glad we found some! 🙂
So before the event, I kinda had a hard time making that weapon and the hat XD Since I only got limited time due to work OTs, I really need to manage everything as fast as I can before the deadline XD Thankfully I was able to finish everything and was satisfied with my latest works 🙂
And so this is Freya’s spear. I know, not quite like the one in the game but I was happy I was able to make something like this! XD It’s an achievement! You know how happy you are if you had made something that’s worth your time XD Ahahaha~ Sorry for the drama but this is really what I feel XD
It wasn’t that hard to make because it wasn’t really that complicated. But when I was working on this, I accidentally cut my pinky finger. It was so deep that blood keep gushing. I was nervous because it was my first time too XD I didn’t felt pain, I guess I became numb but I was really nervous XD and so I learned my lesson to be careful with sharp things XD LOLZ!
I can say this was the hardest part to make. Freya’s hat. It was suppose to be included to make by my seamstress but she told me a week before she couldn’t do it and to look for someone else. I guess she’s having a hard time for this one. And I thought “I don’t have time to look for another” so I decided to make it by myself. I never thought I could do it in one day! XD I was so satisfied with the outcome too. It doesn’t really look like Freya’s but you can see similarities XD *sigeee, push paaaa* Ahahaha! I’m happy with this anyway 😀
The suppose to be ‘bat wing’ XD
This wasn’t made by me but my seamstress of course. She did an awesome job with this! Thank you! I kinda want to learn to make costumes too so I guess I should study sewing? 😀 Yep, someday, I will 😀
And here we go on D-2 of CosManiaaaaa~ It was a long tiring day but full of fun~ I woke up around 5am and left around 7am. I had to take a bus because the spear will be a bother inside the FX. I arrive around quarter to 10am and meet-up with friends. The rest was all the fun! 😀
Pictures aheeaaddd 😀

This was our shoot from a professional photographer. It was my first time doing this so I was kinda nervous posing in front of the camera. I’m normally the one taking pictures (no, I’m not a photographer either. I just love taking pictures) and it’s different when you take a random pics with yourself so this is so new to me 😀 I’m glad it came out too good for me! So thank you sir Fritz. Crediting you big time here in my blog 😀
Aside from looking for fellow workmates, I was also looking for online friends who went on the event D-2 🙂 Luckily I bump at Ate Nagi! I was the one who approached her first since I guess she won’t recognize me 😀 I normally don’t do that but I don’t know what happen XD When I saw her, I shouted “ATE NAGI!!! IT’S ME XIAN!!!” Hahahaha! Kinda awkward but happy to finally met her! XD We’ve been blog buddies since I was in HS and this is the first time I met her XD Hopefully next time again 😀 Visit her blog @ JapaneseNagi
And there’s no one else. I couldn’t find anyone with all the crowd and all. My feet was killing me too so we had to stop several times XD *sorry guys* But we we’re able to find colleagues in the area. Probably because we got contacts and all 😀
Pictures were by the way from my friends. I have not taken any photos during the event because I don’t have my camera and it’s kinda hard so to be less hassle. I let my friends do the picture taking XD
and another SELCA of meee XDD Kekekeke~
So overall it was a fun event specially when you’re with friends! 😀 It was nice to know some people can recognize who am I that day XDD Thank youuuu :3 Makes me want to do it more XDDD Currently thinking of doing Kamatari Honjo or from SnK~ XDD Wish me luck! 8D
Thanks for reading! If you happen to see me, please tell me or you have a picture of me or with my friends above, please tell me 😀 just comment below 😀 Love to know that! Thank youuuuu :3
PS: I left the con around 6pm because another event was held on the same place but different function room!! It was KNation!!! XD Sorry~ my otaku life and kpopper life collides on the same date! I just can’t help it but to attend both XD But anyways, so happy to see U-KISS and BIGSTAR!!! <3
So let’s see… Last post was August, so it’s been almost 2 months! XDD Kekekeke~ What happen? I don’t know either XD
So yeah, this is still alive. I am just really lazy updating my blog. Aside from being busy, I’m thinking a lot of things and I can’t focus so much XD Anyways, I don’t want to miss to blog these stuffs (actually it’s already late) but here the things that happen a month before 🙂 Just to keep you updated that I am still alive. HAHAHA! (Well, I’m more active in facebook, twitter and instagram, you might have already seen it you’re following me 😀
1. DONDAY: Korean Restaurant
I’m not sure if I’ve blogged here about the “HallyuChingus” but oh well, these young ladies are my new found friends from work (though we’re all from different projects/teams) and they are all KPOP Lovers like me! XD I’m really happy to meet them all because I now know I’m not alone in fantasizing about KPOP Idols XD We named our underground group as HallyuChingus 🙂 I found them thru our company’s private social networking site 😀 Hehehee~
So we had an EB, grand EB I must say and we ate in DONDAY. It’s a Korean Restaurant with unlimited Samgyeopsal <3 It was my first time and I love it! Feeling so Korean XD CHOS! XD We also had a cake too celebrate Donghae’s, Henry’s, Zelo’s birthdays and B2ST Anniversary XD (We’re not really into KPOP XD Sorry XD) Overall it was really fun meeting them and eating Korean food (except that I have to be picky because I don’t eat spicy foods :c) and talking a lot of KPOP <3 For sure more to come and we expect to meet more of us in the future 😀 Heehee~ Fighting!
2. BLUE HAIR
I GOT MY HAIR BLUEEEEEEE!!!! <3 AHAHAHAHA! Well, not the whole hair. (I’d be kick out of work if I did XD) Remember the bleach part before? Yep, that’s it. I really want to have the blue hair (actually the whole hair but I can’t X3) so I finally achieve it! ლ(́◉◞౪◟◉‵ლ) <3 This is also my preparation for the upcoming SS5 Concert on 24th! HAHAHAHA! OH YEAH!!!! Well, a little bad news, I think I over colored my hair XD HAHAHA! and It became really dry, frizzy and easily break 🙁 Oh well, after the concert, I will cut my hair short! HAHAHA!
3. COSMANIA 2013 DAY 2
So not only KPOP friends but I also met friends who are into Anime, Manga and Cosplays XD I attended CosMania 2013, Day 2 last October 6, 2013 and I cosplayed Jubei of BlazBlue XD (the yellow one, original character is the banner above :D). I can say this would be my second cosplay ‘coz the first one was Luffy (if you remember XD) but this is my first time to cosplay in an Anime event and yeah, it was kind of fun 😀 The girl beside me is a new found friend from work also XD She’s the one who encouraged me to cosplay with her and I agreed XD HAHAHA! She’s an experienced cosplayer so I enjoyed every moment of it 😀 Well, I’m planning to go for another one! XD HAHAHA! So watch out for it XD
Well, I was kinda disappointed with the costume though. Looking for a dressmaker is hard =.= I wish I could sew 🙁 But luckily I found one 2 weeks before the event and then I gave e v e r y s i n g l e d e t a i l I want to see on the costume but it didn’t work. I almost backed-out that time because it seems fail to me but nahh, I still go (and my friend was really expecting me XD) and I’m thankful that I had fun 😀
So that’s it 😀 I don’t want to miss blogging these stuffs, RLY. Anyways, I’ll be back for my SS5 concert update! YAY! AHAHAHAHA!
For the first time in my life, I portrayed an Anime character instead of dressing up something Japanese-y ヽ(；▽；)ノ
My team celebrated our 9th Anniversary of delivering High Performance yesterday, July 20, 2013 just within the building and we have a Cosplay Themed party! (｀・ω・´)”
As I said before, yeah it was my first time with a character and as soon as I heard we’re having a cosplay theme party, I decided that I will cosplay an Anime character no matter what XD! And there it goes, I become Luffy! ＼（＾ ＾）／
PICTURE SPAM AHEAD 🙂
Not too Luffy but I manage to pull it off somehow XD
Unfortunately, the theme announced 1 week before the said date and everyone don’t have much time to prepare to have their costumes. I too have a hard time but I thank Luffy for one of the easiest character to cosplay 😀 so I go as Luffy 🙂
Everything I wore was improvised or borrowed XD Since I also don’t have money to spent much to cosplay I just make things up to become the character XD I just bought the t-shirt and painted it XD The original t-shirt from Uniqlo would cost me around 500php and I can’t spent much on that. I only bought Luffy’s straw hat because I badly wanted it (●´∀｀●) *self-satisfaction* Anyways, black shorts is mine, the wig, I borrowed it XD because wigs are expensive too, although it may not look really much like Luffy’s hair, I just need a short dark wig 😀 and that’s it! 😀 I kinda surprised to see myself like that. Never expected too much happiness XD
Some are not game on cosplay so they just wore character or anime shirts. Others don’t have time so they ended up not to wear costumes. Overall, it was still all fun because of the games and everyone are enjoying the party (´ω｀★) so regardless of you’re in costume or not, we enjoyed out celebration.
Our Manager in full suit! He said it’s his first time to cosplay but damn, he nailed it! He’s prepared! XD
The Mario Brothers! 😀 I’m really glad we are resourceful! Hahahaha!
One of our Group Lead as Videl (Dragon Ball)
This is really funny! Another GL of our team cosplayed Hell Teacher Nube as he said XDDD LOL!
with Gothic girl 🙂
Mario Brothers with a Korean girl and Luffy! XD
Misa, Luigi and Luffy in kawaii mode XD
Mario Brothers save the Princess!!!
Misa Amane and L~ Oh, where is Raito? XD
Hello BatGirl and Seifuku Girl!
Calling all those who cosplayed! You can count who just cosplayed XD
Overall, it was a fun experience for everybody! We realize how hard to put up a costume as well as how fun to play in a costume! XD I hope this will not be my last XD I would really like to try 🙂 I’m just not ready in the big public crowd XD *whew*
Anyways I would like to congratulate again my team! Great job to everyone! And thank you for the awesome freebies and gifts! 😀
Happy 9th Anniversary!
