Iinchou at Ai Expo 2017 Day 2


Second day of Ai Expo and I finally have the opportunity to debut my devil!Rin cosplay that I've been working on for a really long time.

It's quite an eventful day. My friends and I started out early so I ended up wearing my costume for more than seven hours. It was the longest time I've ever worn a cosplay to date and I'm surprised that nothing fell apart or got broken despite the many pieces of my costume and the con crowd I had to squeeze through. I even brought super glue, fabric glue, some threads and a needle because the costume really looks delicate but I'm happy I didn't have the need to use them.

Iinchou at Ai Expo 2017 Day 1


AI Expo or Anijou Iloilo Expo is an annual 2-day local hobby convention here in Iloilo City that focuses on arts, gaming and cosplay. The event took place last September 16-17 and I'm a little late with my posts because of organizing the devil!Rin worklog and getting too caught up in #inktober.

I'm going to make this a 2-part post, just so I can easily organize and separate my thoughts for each day.

Hoshizora Rin Little Devil Ver. Complete Cosplay Worklog

Finally! The fourth and final part of my Little Devil Rin cosplay project. Oh boy, this costume has been the most time-consuming and detailed project I've done so far I don't even know where to start so I apologize for posting this way behind my planned scheduled. I had a hard time mapping out the structure on how this entire post should go.

When I first decided to make this project, I'm actually at a loss on how I'm going to put them together. It didn't help that there were only one official reference photo and not enough cosplay shots.

But I had fun experimenting new techniques, tinkering details and adding a few personal touches based on how I interpreted the entire thing. I'm quite proud with how this project turned out.

Hello Brrr-months & Life Updates


We're only about four months away to 2018 (let that sink in) and I haven't even gone halfway through my cosplay list. There hasn't been any conventions here lately so my motivation's been down in the dumps. I have a lot of ideas to write for this blog all piled up but my brain seems to be refusing to cooperate..

I'm just drifting along the flow right now but I'm still trying to stay right on track. Even though I've been pretty slow and behind schedule, I make sure I'm still making progress.
