Character: Nuriko (Fushigi Yuugi)
Photography: patalord
Cosplay made and worn by myself (tumblr | deviantart)

I wore Nuriko again last week to a small local event and forced asked my sister to take some pictures. I had taken the chance to restyle the wig, especially the bangs. It’s still far from being accurate, but I’m slowly getting there.

Characters: Finn & Fionna (Adventure Time)
Cosplayers: patalord as Finn | y-o-s-s-i as Fionna
Costumes: y-o-s-s-i

I’m still waiting to get my hands on some more pictures of my Marceline cosplay, but luckily I still have a whole lot of derpy pictures of my sister and me as Finn and Fionna to bridge the time.

Character: Sofia Sartor (Assassin's Creed Revelations)
Cosplay worn and sewn by: Y-o-s-s-i (deviantArt | tumblr)

Finally came around to editing some pictures from last Connichi. These were taken in our hotel’s drawing room, which had the most beautiful furniture - among them a billiard table and a small library. Sadly, the lighting was pretty bad, so many of the pictures were unsalvageably dark and/or grainy. I really liked these two, though, so I decided to share them with you.

Costume + Model: Y-o-s-s-i (deviantArt | tumblr) Character: Marceline (Adventure Time)

Marceline was my Plan B for Leipzig Bookfair in case I couldn’t finish the cosplay I had originally planned. In fact, Sewing Statue took up so much time, I didn’t even bother to start on another costume, but  moved on to gathering materials/clothes for Marceline right away. Pretty much everything you can see above was bought or part of my everyday wardrobe. The only thing I had to sew were the gloves. The gloves! If anyone had told me two years ago that -after years of avoiding cosplays that included gloves- I’d sew gloves for a closet cosplay, I’d sent them straight to the asylum.Times change. I’m actually quite good at sewing gloves (out of stretch fabric) now. Huh.

On a different note: This was my first cosplay with bodypaint, so I regard it as a dress rehearsal (as it were) for Elphaba (Wicked) this summer. The paint is much more comfortable on the skin as I’d imagined, but I’m glad nonetheless that I won’t need to paint my shoulders and arms again for the Wicked Witch.

Random note # 2: Marceline shares her German voice actress with Zooey Deschanel. Best. Casting. Decision. Ever.

Oh hey, that’s me!

Thank you very much for the feature! It’s an honour to be put here with these awesome ladies.

Characters: Wiccan & Statue (Young Avengers)
Cosplayers:
Feder as Wiccan (tumblr | deviantArt)
Yossi as Statue (tumblr | deviantArt)
Photography & editing: Krone (tumblr | Facebook)

Leipzig Bookfair was a blast and here are the first pictures of my Statue cosplay!

Truth be told - this cosplay would not have happened without goddamngeckogirl, who not only introduced me to Young Avengers, but also helped me out a lot with figuring out the pattern for Statue’s suit and showed how to make my own stretch piping. (For which I’m especially grateful, since there are roughly 8m of piping in this costume) Last but not least she also agreed to wear her gorgeous Wiccan cosplay again so we could team up!

LBM (Leipzig Bookfair) is just around the corner, so here’s my cosplay line-up.I would’ve liked to include pictures of the actual costumes, but I simply haven’t found the time to put them on yet. Plus, Statue’s bracelets aren’t finished yet.
I’m looking forward to wearing Cassandra. Sewing the suit has been a lot of pain, but I’m almost fully satisfied with it now. I’ll be teaming up with goddamngeckogirl, whose Wiccan cosplay simply roxors.
Marceline is a last-minute closet cosplay, because I had to give up on any other plans when Cassie kept me busy. The only thing I had to sew myself were the gloves and the bows on my boots. My sister will be going as Huntress Wizard and I’m very excited to have such a comfortable cosplay for Sunday. Who knows - I might actually be able to enjoy the bookfair!

wicked challenge → five costumes: elphaba’s act two dress

Why, hello there, you gorgeous dress. You’re on my list for this summer. I’m so looking forward to sewing you!

Series: Ribon no Kishi / Princess Knight
Character: Princess Sapphire
Cosplayers: Little Red Riding Hood - Konzertjunky (deviantArt)
                  Prince - Patalord (Animexx | tumblr)
                  Princess - Y-o-s-s-i (tumblr | deviantArt)
Photographers: 1st row - kashikosa (Animexx)
                        2nd row - Andy K. (tumblr | deviantArt | Facebook)
                        3rd row - Krone (tumblr | deviantArt | Facebook)                  

I was thinking about what I should post to revive my tumblr when I realised I haven’t even shared a single picture of my Princess Sapphire costume yet -le gasp-. I wore it last September at Connichi together with my sister patalord and lovely Maddi aka konzertjunky, who were cosplaying the same character in different outfits.
I sewed both my dress and my sister’s prince gown and while her cosplay was a walk in the park, things were going pear-shaped with mine. In the end, I managed to make it look somewhat representable, but it’ll never be my favourite costume. I’d still love to have a proper full-body picture, though, so that means I’ll have to wear it again sometime.

Nonetheless, let’s have a heartfelt “yay” for vintage manga cosplay.

YAY!

Character: Kate Kane (Batwoman)
Cosplayer: Y-o-s-s-i (tumblr | deviantArt)
Photography & editing: evayabai (tumblr | Facebook)

I’m aliiiive! Well, sort of. As I said before, I’m currently moving. Things will be mostly finished next Sunday, but I still won’t have internet access for some time except for lunch breaks at work.

Above are some of the gorgeous preview pictures of a Batwoman shoot I had with my dear evayabai at Mega Manga Con last November. She’s even more busy than I am, so it’ll propably take some time until she’s done editing the full set, but in the mean time, you should totally check out her photography tumblr!

Most of these pictures were taken in the backyard of a nearby supermarket between multiple dustbins and the delivery entrance. Thankfully, it looks a bit dodgier on pictures than it did in real life. One day, I’d love to take Kate (and Diana, for that matter) to an abandonned factory building for pictures, though!

Hai Gais! I’m participating in the cosplay photographers Photo of the Year contest. If you like this image, please click on through to the contest page and give it a like. Thanks so much to anyone who likes to help! (Also, a reblog would be very appreciated.)
Model: http://goddamngeckogirl.tumblr.com/

vote for me and my dearest Squirrelino! *A*~

Squirrel is one of the most talented and dedicated photographers out there! He’s a lighting wizard (above: exhibit A) and has a great eye for interesting yet flattering angles and absolutely deserves to get some more recognition. I’ve worked with him a couple of times and adore every single picture he took!
Also, the cosplayer in this picture, Feder, is in no way inferior to him in terms of dedication and professionalism. Just look at the beautiful bead-work on her cuffs!

IT’S FINALLY THE CHRISTMAS SEASON

I CAN FINALLY REBLOG THIS

I love this movie because of the historically accurate tiny muppet costumes

It is also one of the charming and most true-to-the-original adaption of The Christmas Carol I’ve seen. Yes, even with Gonzo as Dickens in it. Also: Beautiful music and costumes. And Michael Caine as Scrooge. Do I even need to give you more reasons to watch it?
One of my favourite movies of all time. I cannot recommend it enough. I shall watch it tonight!

I force myself so much to write proper WIP posts that I tend to forget to share pictures of the finished costumes afterwards. Not like my WIP posts were anything remotely spectacular, either. Sorry about that.

Ever wondered how that Nuriko costume I worked on in September came out? Well, here you go.

Ironically, I felt very feminine wearing this cosplay. Extraordinarily so.
Spoiler: Nuriko’s a  guy.

Character: Fionna the Human
Series: Adventure Time
Cosplayer: Y-o-s-s-i

Sorry for being so inactive lately. I’m currently moving, but things are being… difficult. Have some of the Fionna pictures from Connichi I edited to distract myself.
