Been thinking to update/renovate the form of content I've been posting here. I don't like wasting people's time so I'll transform my cosplay and life escapades to things with what I learn from them. Things I get from the random adventures I have in cosplay and in life in general.
What do you mean?
Like a life lesson or practical tutorials like what I've done so far, bits of light tutorial, costume making, photography and posing to be specific.
Lesson 01: PATIENCE GRASSHOPPER
Not a lot of edits on this, more of a practice for team "RedCurry" on simply using our wits and a beautiful venue. It took a while to plan and have the right amount of funds. But look! It's worth it, I'll tell you right off I regret nothing. The venue was the right choice and everything just fell according to place. At times, it's really better to wait then to rush and force things (Which I usually do)
This day was very testing really, from crazy traffic jams from my place and crazy full parking places so early in the morning all we were able to do was wait. And it did bear fruit. Though honestly, I did not get the shot I wanted.
Patience: To the people outside this hobby:
Why waste so much time/money on such silly things? Well, as you might invest on an iphone or partying these are what takes up our time. It's not that our lives are boring, quite the opposite most of us are creative individuals who require an outlet. If you have family who enjoy this kind of past time, have a little bit of patience with them. We aren't inconsiderate if you have a point we would listen. As long as you do the same for us. A 'waste' of time is only defined but what kind of return you expect. :) We expect nothing but beautiful photos and memories to look back on.
As it seems to be how it is with me and my little plans, it was a rough start with this shoot. I once again crammed everything in a day or so and had to make my own megaphone and sewed my own gloves. As the dye was the wrong color. (False advertising!! The packaging was almost a 'teal to cyan' but the dye color was almost royal blue)
To add to those, I was seriously getting worse health wise. I had flu, a slight fever and I was getting dizzy very easily. I went to work almost the whole week and still pursued the shoot. I'm not yet happy with the outputs though. I mean nothing is exactly 'blowing my mind' just yet. I hope it gets better and that there will be shots that are worth looking at a little more and processing further.
EGL Costume: work in progress
The venue that was planned before hand has already been demolished, so in moving forward in plans we've only rushed ideas and have yet to see if this proves fruitful. I hope it does though, even if I had to make my own megaphone from scratch (Budget constraints "OTL ) And most of these were made a couple of hours. I even had to make my own gloves as the dye I bought for my gloves didn't work out as I wanted. *sigh*
In any case, I'll still hope for the best.
Am not saying I'm personally a liar, am not. I try to be as blunt as possible, but reality would tell us that a pretty face won't necessarily equate to a good heart/personality. It's the age old question of good looks and good personalities--
Just don't get fooled by the short skirt and long lashes, she might be the worse bitch or bastard to prowl upon your wallet since your favorite nendo came out or that new Assassin's Creed game.
Hatsune Miku, I think I've mentioned her more than 10 times on this blog of mine now. And I regret no bit of it. If there was one singular character that I cosplay almost monthly it's her. I love the concept art that go with the PV. I love how people who know how to compose and can create beautiful music but have no exact means to, can do it with her.
The possibilities she present, the hope, and all the words that she takes across continents is just magical!
"Deep Sea Girl" by Hatsune Miku is seriously a weird yet catchy song. Am not sure if I'm to take the lyrics literally or not. But hey, it makes one think unlike most of the english blurb we get here locally from radio stations.
Click here for the video and song.
Fantasy Quest is but 4 days away, and I spent last week making this costume instead. XD I should seriously whack myself silly for thinking that an armor for Emi Yusa is doable within the week. (And said week is rainy as hell and I have a day job too)
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.
When I first saw the bax in Tagaytay, (and during the start of my vacation at that) I was screaming and taking pictures at the display at the front of Data Blitz. Yep, I looked like a total idiot who was taking pictures with a vita. At first, I said to myself that I would probably get this if the price didn't go higher than 2,000 php. But it did, and it was a bit disappointing.
The box cover:
I really love the art on the box. The only issue I had now was the fact that they didn't even offer a CD to go with the entire thing. It was just ACCESSORIES. I mean, yeah sure I'd love one of those, but the sticker for the PS3 and controllers are a let down. It would have been best to just be 'purely' accessories for the PS3. An actual controller with Miku in it perhaps. or anything on the lines of that would've made more sense.
A stand for your PS3 DUALSHOCK controller, Stickers for the PS3 Unit itself
Cord straps in the shapes of Vocaloid Headphones (Namely, Miku's, Rin's, Len's and Luka's)
A Hatsune Miku Figure that can be attached to the controller or the controller stand, A cleaning cloth with a Hatsune Miku illustration on it, and an original Hatsune Miku phone strap.
My first and ever beloved Vocaloid: Hatsune Miku.
Although her songs are quite varied, I almost always like all of them.
From Tsundere, to twisted lolita. She's everything you want.
Some people might find her voice a tad bit 'unrealistic'. But honestly, looking at how other people make her sing, and how they make stories of the songs. She has a lot more substance than the other singers. She does not get paid for it, nor will she ever get into a scandal of sorts.
She won't age, the vocal qualities will depend on the user. (And more likely it's sub par or really above standards.
To simply sum it: I LOVE Hatsune Miku.
