MKR: Out for a Stroll
The artbook designs for the three girls' casual dresses are so cute! I really like the fit of this dress, and I'm pretty much hooked on princess seams now. The cardigan didn't turn out exactly as I wanted it to -- the pattern called for stretch fabric, and I think my zigzag took out just enough of the stretch to make it a little too tight in the shoulders and arms -- but it's pretty cute. And these shoes are now my favorite.

It was so cold at Katsucon! The cold wave has been sweeping across the northeast a lot this month. (None of the snow here outside NYC will melt!) I wore my winter angel outfit again so that I could cosplay with Kikuka-chan to her Fuu! For Katsucon I fixed up my wig (I ripped out the old ponytail clip on wefts and sewed in some separate wefts -- agh, my fingers were so sore)

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!

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!
