K-On!: Nakano Azusa 03

k-on! cosplay - nakano azusa 03Azusa looks up to Mio from the light music club due to her maturity and experience as a bassist. Once, she even tried to give Mio chocolate for Valentine’s Day. However, she sometimes unintentionally points out Mio’s weaknesses, such as her weight. She also thinks Mugi is very beautiful, envious of her hair and large eyes.

To be honest, Azusa has nothing to be envious of. She herself is very talented and cute, right? Thanks to MP Zero for the awesome photography and also to Ange for the contribution!

♥ Kazeki

Kazeki, I've been 'stalking' her awesome cosplays way before I started cosplaying. I'm certainly impressed by her cosplays, always bringing it to a higher level. Her cosplay of Fatima from Five Star Story really did blew me away with the suit and even more epic headgear... and she did portray Fatima very well*lovelove

More Magna Carta, I can't get over Hyung Tae Kim.

Ryea: Do you make your own costume & props ?
Costumes are usually tailored/modified but my props are made by Jarold and I.
I have awesome friends like Rain, Stick and Jac'kee that always help me out as well.

Ryea: What is your favorite part when cosplay?
Seeing a prop completed, wearing the full costume for the first time and I get very strange satisfaction when it comes to editing photos, I guess it's because I consider it the final touches of my cosplay.

Ryea: Any good/funny/memorable experience when you cosplay?
Persona 4 - waking up at 3am to get ready for a long road to Sekinchan.
C.C. Mutuality - Got to cosplay with the amazing Kanasaii and Lenneth pair. I felt like the luckiest C.C. ;_____;

Definitely improved in every aspect from prop making to make up and of course *~editing photos~* BEFORE & AFTER

Ryea: Do you salute/idolize any cosplayer?
Omi Gibson

Ryea: Any tips to share ?
Study, research, work smart, enjoy!

Ryea: Do you think as a 'qualified' cosplayer, it's a must to do everything without the help from professionals ; costume props and others?
If that's the case, a lot of us wouldn't be "qualified" enough to cosplay.
Some people just have strengths on certain aspects while others don't.

and 3 random questions :

1) Which convention do you like most in Malaysia?
Comic Fiesta

2) How much money do you spend on Seth Nightroad.. the outfit is such AMAZING piece!!
Thank you! I spent about RM1.5k, it pales in comparism to the Trinity Blood team that debuted at CF2010 though, that team was AMAZING.

3) What do you do in events?
Meet old friends and new ones. I don't really have much stamina for events though.
I do better in photoshoots.

Thank you so much Kazeki !!~

GamerTotoy's Resolution

Aside from passing on the baton, I've got a few other big changes to make in 2011. Granted that only once in my life have I kept a New Year's resolution, this time I'm pretty focused to succeed in all three.

1. No more alcohol
2. No more casual sex (Tantric sex is fair game because of the meditative benefits)
3. Everyday is training day

It's a huge undertaking, but I've never been so sure of myself. I met a very powerful man who, while savage and ferocious, is an amazing mentor. You wouldn't believe he's nearly in his 60s when you see him in action. He's not as philosophically or spiritually profound as my previous master in martial arts, but he truly is a monster like his master-level peers call him.

If I break even one thing in this list of resolutions during 2011, I swear I will let anyone in the cosplay community publicly humiliate me, I will apologize and compensate for everything supposedly evil that I've done, and I will shamefully take back every single word I've written since I first talked about cosplayers.

Thus so spoke GamerTotoy.
Hail GamerTotoy!
Down with Alodianism!

(P.S. I want a name for the GamerTotoy religion, too.)

Kaika in Cosplayland (2010 recap)

Click on the picture to see the details and read the dates XD!

Because 2010 was such a wonderful Cosplay year for me, I decided to compile a list of the cosplay related stuffs I did this year. I know it's not the usual 'Costume portfolio' thing that other people do because I added 34394396482 other nonsense stuffs.

But that's really because each event/shoot meant something to me even if I was just a helper/spectator. It meant a day of my life spent with that specific group of people and getting to know each other.

You would notice I didn't have much costumes but more of event coverage, shoot helper and competitions. Yeah, I prefer to have fun enjoying cosplays than rush costumes hahah . Am lazy, yes.
