Neon Genesis Green Halo

Christmas + Cosplay = The best time of the year! I took advantage of the CosWorx 35% off sale to get wefted extensions for my Mari wig to make a part in the center of it.
Then, today, my friend Sarah cave me the best Christmas present EVER!!!

None of these Photobooth pictures does it justice. It really is bright bright bright lime green. And the battery pack is so small it is as big as two fingers... I am really excited to use it for my Mari glowing interface to unit 05 that you can see at 1:02 of this youtube upload of the trailer

Merry Christmas!

Yay cosplay blog! I've been dying to do this and now that the semester is over I can start. Thing is I am only going to have a few weeks to really get anything done because then I am going to Japan, but lets see what I can get done in the mean-time!

I have already successfully completed several cosplays, most worn at Otakon. In order of recency:
- The Major, Motoko Kusanagi of Ghost in the Shell, Stand Alone Complex (Otakon 2009)

- Rei Ayanami of Neon Genesis Evangelion (Otakon 2008, 2009)

- Miwako of Paradise Kiss (Otakon 2005)

- (Sailor Moon)
- (Sailor V)

- Hime of Brain Powered (Worn at Big Apple Anime Fest 2003, featured in Animerica in 2003)

- Commissioned for Dr.Girlfriend of the Venture Brothers (Otakon 2009), Tenchi Muyo of Tenchi Muyo! (Otakon 2005)

I have recently taken on some bigger projects that will take alot longer than any other to make, and I thought it would be interesting to start a blog about making them.
When I was at Otakon 2009, I went to the debut screening of Evangelion 1.0 Rebirth, and I caught my first glimpse of Mari Illustrious Makinami. From a 2 second shot I knew I HAD TO BE HER. So I went home an immediately started in on my research and making. I couldn't decide on which of her two plugsuits to make, so...

I am making both! Then... I started watching Gundam 00 and saw Nadleeh and I will be starting a Gundam Girl style of Gundam Nadleeh. My plate is so full I need a new table...


Kick the sleeper in his shin

There is little that I find more annoying than a person who pretends to / falls asleep when they are over just because no one is specifically paying attention to them. Especially when they were not invited.
