Convention Report: Midori II

Hey everyone! 

So, it's time for a new convention report! This time I'm going to talk about Midori II.

So, Midori II was held during the 22nd and 23rd September in Centro Galego de Lisboa! It was the first time that I went to a Midori event and also the first time I've been at that place!

I went both days and met amazing people there! *o*

DAY 1 - 22nd September 2012 - Kurapika (Hunter x Hunter)
My morning was super stressful that day! 

I had to wake up really early because my parents were going to a small trip in Alentejo, so I had to go to my grandparent's house. I had to carry my costume to their house, on foot, and it was almost raining! The weather looked horrible, I thought it was going to rain the entire day! ;__;

I decided to take Kurapika that day! I hadn't worn this costume in over a year and besides, I didn't have any pictures of it! So it was a great opportunity to make a photoshoot! 

My grandpa took me there on his car. Neither of us had ever been to Centro Galego de Lisboa, so we didn't have a clear idea of how to get there. We finally found a place to park, but we had to walk a bit because we still had to find it! And guess what? WE GOT LOST!

But, thanks to some guy we found it! If it wasn't for him we would have never gotten there!

The con was in this huge house! To be honest, I was a bit disapointed because the space outside was a little bit small. And because the stage was also outside, which to be honest, sucks.

However, it had a garden with a fountain and a small lake, lots of green spaces and an amazing view! *o* That's where I did my photoshoots!

I didn't took more pictures of the garden because I forgot ;w;

I was so excited to meet all my friends!

I finally met Malakai! *o* She's so sweet and cute! I feel sad we didn't get to take a picture together but I'm sure we can see each other some other time. Maybe even this year!

I met so many people, I can't name everyone! I spent a bit of the day with Fiaziinha, Misaki, João and Caty!

Me and my cosplay idol Lenore-Eeva-Leena *o* I look horrible!

Me and Lena-chan! I look horrible again! ;___;

So, I did a photoshoot with Lena-chan as the photographer (I love her Tsunade cosplay so much *o*) and also as a cosplayer! If you read my blog you know that she has done several of my photoshoots, and they're always so amazing!!

Of course, this one was no exception! She's so talented! And the location helped a lot too! I will be posting photos of the shoot really soon!

My feet!

At the end of the afternoon I also did a shoot (as the photographer) with my friend BloodandCandies! She looked super pretty! You can see some of the pictures we took in her gallery.

DAY 2 - 23nd September 2012 - Mikoto Uchiha (Naruto)
I thought it'd be a calm day because my parents were already home and I didn't have to carry stuff around, but... I LOST MY WALLET! Yeah, I lost it, so I spent like half an hour searching for it at my house, already in costume! And yes, I found it!

Despite this little problem, I was super excited because I was finally going to wear my Mikoto Uchiha costume!

Me and Fiaziinha!

This day was a blast! I did another photoshoot, this time with Fiaziinha! I was both the photographer and the model! I carried around a baby Itachi the entire day, but it was so awesome! And I loved when people recognized me because of the plushie ahaha XD

My feet again!!
I bought a lot of stuff! Two Naruto badges, some lolita accessories, a Sasuke phone-charm... And then, I bought the most amazing thing ever!

I finally have the Kusanagi sword (Sasuke's sword)! Now I can start thinking about cosplaying Sasuke Uchiha! I just need to find a decent wig and YES, I will cosplay Sasuke!

That's all for now (I'm super tired >.<)! Hope you guys liked it and expect new photos soon! Also, I am updating the costume gallery!


New cosplay: Mikoto Uchiha (Naruto)

Hey everyone! 

I am finally making another post here! And yes, I already have another new costume! It's Mikoto Uchiha from Naruto!

Artwork from the official databook

I've wanted to cosplay Mikoto for a long time. I've always thought she was a very interesting, gorgeous character and also a very good and lovely mother! Besides, she's the mother of the famous Uchiha Brothers!

After Naruto chapter 590 came out, I immediately started planning this cosplay. After finally knowing the entire story behind the Uchiha clan massacre, I had to do it. Though, I only started it some weeks ago!

Here goes two more reference pictures for you guys:

Both pictures are real screenshots from the anime

Like I said, she's such a beautiful woman! And I've always thought her facial structure fits mine so it was another positive factor that made me gather enough courage and do the costume!

As for the fabrics, here's what I bought:


I decided to discard my first idea, which was to do everything except for the shirt (that would have been bought somewhere), and do everything by myself! I think that way it looks so much better and besides, I feel an even bigger connection with the costume because I did every single thing!

I admit that during the process of creating this cosplay, I was really lazy to take pictures. so I can't show you the exact process of how I made everything. Though, I can explain it to you if you want!

(I apologise for the bad quality of some pictures)

Left: Process of cutting the apron | Right: The straps for the back and shoulders!
Almost finished!!

I had never made an apron before, so it was a new and great experience! It's actually really easy (in my opinion). I could have finished it in a day, but as you know I'm lazy, so I did a bit every day during 3 days.

After this one I feel like doing more for me or maybe even to sell, since I'll re-open commissions soon :3

Left: Process of cutting the shirt | Right: The skirt at about 60%
My grandma explaining a couple of things to me before I cut the shirt. I used another shirt as a reference

The skirt wasn't really hard to do, because I used my grandma's patterns. She explains and teaches me a lot of things, otherwise I wouldn't be able to do half the stuff I make. Besides, she also helps me out quite a lot!

As for the shirt, it was challenge time. I hate making jackets and shirts because I'm horrible with sleeves. This time it was no different, but once again my amazing grandma gave me a hand and everything ended up coming out super nice!

Now for the real challenge: the Shinobi Sandals

4 of the steps to make the sandals
I had never made shinobi sandals in my life, but it was pretty cool to make them! Fortunately I found a good tutorial online (thank god) which explains it super well and also in a sort of easy way!

I bought some cheap flipflops at the chinese store, which surprisingly had the perfect color! Though I wish the fabric was a bit darker, but still, I think it came out perfect for the occasion.

2 more of the steps!
I finished both of them in two days, and of course that I procrastinated a bit (as always). I didn't took a pictures of the heel cuff part, but you can see it in the tutorial (it was pretty much the same anyways). 

Everything was glued with hot glue (which a rarely use, but it was how the tutorial said, so I followed it). And they're actually quite confortable to walk!

Here are some pictures of the (almost) finished costume!

I apologise for the colors! The camera didn't capture them properly, that's why I posted that initial picture with the fabrics all together!

And yes, the costume wasn't 100% finished when I took this pictures, but you can already see how it looks like! Of course, it looks so much better in real life *o*

As for the wig, I wore my (super) long black wig that I bought for Gothica about a year ago. It's such a pretty wig but I kind of ruined it a bit with the time ;__; It's way too big for Mikoto, but I didn't have the money to buy a shorter one, so this one it is! And I actually liked to see together with the costume!

I took this photo before going to last weekend's con: Midori II (it was taken with my webcam just before I went out). I already have lots of photos of this costume! I did an awesome photoshoot! *o* But I'll talk about that on the next post, which will be about Midori II!

And no, I'm not going to show any pictures right now. You'll have to wait a little bit more, not much though. Probably just some days.

That's all, hope you guys liked this one! <3
