I really enjoyed wearing this on Saturday - a little uncomfortable but I loved all my group and had a great time. Thanks to everyone in the group!! I was really not expecting to win best group either, just wow! This cosplay is far from finished though! I shall be finishing and polishing her off for LFCC in July! <3 x.

Heya thanks for your comment! ^.^ I'm hopefully doing Anya for Kitacon2012 (April) but it is a huge task and I will be starting my final year of uni in September so not sure it will get done for then. I wanna take my time on it coz I loooove Gears and I wanna do it justice! But hopefully do it next year some time at least :P

To-Do List

We're very sorry, but we've temporarily disabled this feature while we fix some bugs. Thank you for your patience.


First of the LEDs (Posted 1st May 2012)

So prettyyyy.

This is a part of the back piece - just testing out the LEDs

Progress (Posted 26th January 2012)

I have realised i haven't been updating my cosplays with progress xD So for this i have my lancer and longshot - just need to edit them. Bought a new wig and will be styling it when it arrives. Got my first bits of foam so will be starting on my boots soon. Also got all the things for the lighting, feels like i'm back in school doing electronics xDD x.
