MKR: Smiles
I don't know if you can tell, but I was FREEZING that day!

I had an awesome time at the Peddler's Village photoshoot with Konkon Cosplay Photoshoots. This was a pretty comfy costume to wear (other than my fingers and legs being very cold), and I love my wings!

MKR: Happy Day
Hikaru is full of such vibrant energy that I can't help having so much fun cosplaying her. 

I don't remember much about the set-up for this photo other than stupidly staring at the sun and blinking a lot, and I think my eyes might have teared up later. Tiina is smart and did not look at the sun.

Also, can I tell you all how much I love this photo?! It's my favorite from this shoot. Jade's awesome. :heart:

Hooray, Hikaru! Bless this cutiepie. I love her enthusiasm. I reread MKR recently, and it was wonderful. Everyone should go (re)read MKR.

This costume was more work that I imagined, surprisingly. It certainly doesn't look difficult, but I had sizing issues with a pattern due to using a different kind of (non-stretchy) fabric, so it took me three tries to get it to fit right, but it's still too big in the back. There's no way of telling this from photos, so phew~ Gotta fix it, though!

I also did satin stitching for the first time, so then I was fighting with the sewing machine. I broke two needles doing the stitching. 

My braid also fell out of the wig after the shoot, so that day of Otakon was just one big stressful time. But I've fixed the wig (trimmed it, too), and I'm quite happy with it. I plan on doing several Hikaru costumes!

Since my last update, I've been working on cosplay and writing projects on my own when I can. Unfortunately, I've been crazy swamped with work for the past two months. Plus, Dragon Age: Inquisition came out.

I finished Winter Angel Hikaru for Konkon Cosplay Photoshoots' Peddler's Village shoot in New Hope, Pennsylvania. It was a cute place with some nice shops. I'd like to go back sometime just for shopping. I split my time getting pictures with people and then warming up in the shops. But I was so excited to hang out with people I hadn't seen in so long that I didn't really do any shopping.

I'm now working on red checkered dress Hikaru for Katsucon! I got custom fabric from Spoonflower because I couldn't find that black/red checkered pattern anywhere. I also ended up getting a new sewing machine for Christmas! It'll replace my old, small portable machine that I've been using since sophomore year of college. I'll probably still keep it as my backup machine, plus it's nice that it's small and easy to transport. (Not that I want to be sewing at conventions! Bad habit to start!)

I'm not that active on DA, and it's usually the last place I upload photos to, so if you want to see more of me and chat, you can find me in these places:
Facebook - Rose of Battle Cosplay
Tumblr - roseofbattle
ACParadise - Rose of Battle
CosPix - roseofbattle

And my Katsucon plans are as follows:
  • Friday: winter angel Hikaru (Magic Knight Rayearth) (with Kikuka-chan)
  • Saturday: Leia (Tales of Xillia 2) (with a big ToX2 group)
  • Sunday: red checkered dress Hikaru (Magic Knight Rayearth) (with Kikuka-chan and Animus-Panthera)

2015 Cons:
  • Katsucon
  • Genericon
  • PAX East?? (possibly speaking/working as press)
  • Anime Boston
  • Otakon
  • NYCC??

Have a good 2015!
