My cosplay is in a book :D

I was so pleased to get my picture take in my Excaliber costume and even more pleased to find that it was published in the Cosplay Fever Red book! Chuffed!! Excaliber is the most annoying character from the anime series Soul Eater. It was pretty funny to wear on the day as people were like "arghhhh you are so awful".



For those of you not familiar with Soul Eater here's a picture of Excaliber.



The book is available on Amazon, Cosplay Fever Red by Rob Dunlop and features loads of amazing cosplay from some very talented people. You can also check out more shots on their Deviant Art Page.



This is a shot from the masquarade with my friends - we all did Soul Eater costumes :D



We also did a performance in the Omake, I sang and had to stick the microphone inside the mask lol!! My very talented friend Lisa did a brilliant Poi performance, great fun!

Amecon 2009 Photos

A brilliant time was had at Amecon! 


























Fooly Cooly, Haruko Haruhara Cosplay

Haruko Haruhara was my very first cosplay. The dress was made from scratch from a home made pattern, the shoes were crazy and I couldn't walk in them at all but they were the closest thing I could find. My legs were too fat to fit in them so I had to split the backs open and fit eyelets and lace them up the back but they look ok from the front so it was all good.



There's a bit of a story to this picture, we were browsing in the dealer room and this nice lady comes up and asked if she can get a picture with me and comments that I'm the only Haruko she's seen. I'm like chatting away and ask the lady if she can take a picture of the two of us. Anyway on the way home I'm browsing the conbook and spot the nice lady in a picture...and she was only Kari Wahlgrenthe voice of Haruko Haruhara!!! Facepalm!!!! What a missed photo op and what a total wally I must have seemed, sorry Kari!



Here's a reference for Haruko Haruhara - Fooly Cooly is off the wall!!
