In the five minutes Mikasa closed her tired eyes, a million people had died that day. And for all the jokes I make of the series and of her, I love this feisty and yet fragile fighter. She's awesome! Click the link at the end for a taste of the manga. It's currently at Chapter 47 in the manga, and 16 episodes in the series
It just seemed like a fitting post for the last weekend of the month! And hurray for new OP songs for our beloved Shingeki no Kyojin series. (Read the manga here)

And yet so beautiful"

Hatsune Miku is and always will be my favorite Vocaloid (A voice synthesizer with a personality). Read more about Miku and Voice synthesizers here.
Reality Hits: As I scamper around and pretend I'm waiting for Kaito, as Hatsune Miku... the whole facade lets up and I wake up to reality. After wearing costumes and whatnot, what awaits us is real life. A day job, and real world problems like what to cook for dinner and financial matters.
On a more personal note: I'm still struggling to get some stability in my life. I still don't really know what I should be doing. But I'm covering a lot of ground by studying a LOT of things. There's coding, some softwares and more coding! I hope I get to where I want in life soon.
As I've said before? I don't really expect to be featured. There are thousands upon thousands who are way better than me in this hobby. So It's always a surprise to see things like these for being overly passionate about this hobby.
Historia Reiss or Krista Lenz as the series would later cover why some of us give her two names-- is one of my 3 favorite characters from the well known series "Shingeki No Kyojin" or loosely translated "Attack on Titan". It's basically about an old world where Titans (Huge genderless giants) who are by far immortal, feed on humans which are about the size of the palm of their hands.
In comparison to my two other favorites, she's quiet and very gentle. Rivai and Mikasa aren't generally very graceful in terms of dealing with other people. So by far she's the sweetest character there. And although she's like that? She's also strong to some extent. She's not your average damsel in distress.
Hatsune Miku is a Vocaloid (Which is a voice synthesizer that was given a personality and overall look) by Yamaha, and she is one of my favorite divas EVER. I love every installment of her game and have played most of them if not all of them. It's rather impossible for me to go without a year and not cosplay any of her versions.
(Which is I tell you, pretty countless).
About the costume:
It's a modified version of their Project Diva uniforms. As the freedom to add accessories and huge neck ribbons was implemented during Dreamy Theatre and Project Diva F, so I took the liberty of personalizing her to some extent. I made the costume hours before the convention. (In which case, ironically I actually made 2 other costumes and finished everything. But ended up wearing Miku
The photos that you see kicking ass, those that have venues, sometimes with post processed effects and stunning overall visuals? They were planned. Some of them did, 'just happen' but most of those? They were made through consolidated efforts.
We shall talk about what it takes to take part or lead a PHOTOSHOOT.
