OK, so I love Matryoshka by Miku and Gumi, and knew I had to cosplay Gumi as soon as I saw her! XD I've almost completed this costume, and I will be wearing it to MCM Expo in Feb! :D

I was originally gonna go as Chell from Portal, but a change of plans had me doing Gumi instead! I can't wait to cosplay her, she's gonna be so much fuuun! :3

Make up and thangs (Posted 28th January 2012)

HEYHEY KIDS. Since my last journal, my superb socks have arrived and they are rather superb. Also, I went out today and purchased face paint and white fabric paint, and then tested out how my face is gonna look! XD I think it looks quite scary, personally. O.o But anyway, it's looking good, wouldn't you say? :3
I'm gonna try and paint my hoodie tomorrow, and then I'm all done, I think! :D

CRIMBLE JOY (Posted 25th December 2011)

So good news! My lovely grandparents braved eBay and bought me a lovely red hoodie! So that's about £16 I'm not gonna be set back, which is lovely! :')
SO! All that's left to do now is paint it really! And I'm quite excited about that, I really hope it goes well! I'm counting on it doing so! XD
ALSO! My dad bought me some gorgeous Doc Marts, which I'm gonna wear with this, 'cus they really suit it, I think. :) <3
That's all for now, peace out! xxx

DAT WIG (Posted 9th November 2011)

Oh my GOSH, I received my wig today, along with a wig head I ordered, which is totally lovely!
The wig is so perfect!! Like seriously, it's beautiful and so soft and lovely and I love wigs. I might still need to trim the fringe cus it's a little blunt, but it's otherwise perfect! XD

Initiation! :D (Posted 30th October 2011)

This cosplay has officially started! I purchased the wig yesterday, and I went into town the other day to get black fabric paint. All I need to get really is white fabric paint, and the hoodie of course. Then it's figuring out the bottom half, painting the matryoshka hoodie, styling the wig ('specially dat fringe XD), figuring out my make up, then I'm pretty much ready really! XD And several months early! :)
