Hi again! How's it going?
Had a pretty cool day today, Iggie and I struck out into Leeds in costume to make an appearance at ThoughtBubble, a comics convention held opposite the Royal Armouries.
We played it cheap by not actually entering the convention, but there were plenty of people buzzing around outside - we hadn't been there for 5 minutes before we were asked for photos...
And that's because we were cosplaying as Vocaloids, of course. Vocaloid is so big lately, that cosplaying from a popular PV will pretty much guarantee pictures.
The pics aren't everything of course! I only ever cosplay from things I love, so I get a lot of fun just from being in costume!
Anyway, today we debuted:
Hatsune Miku & Megpoid Gumi
With myself as Miku and Iggie as her favourite vocaloid, Gumi, we had a lottttttt of fun and got some great pictures, I'll link you when they're all processed!
I made my jacket and did our make-up, Iggie hand-stitched the smiling detail onto her hoodie - and don't you think it looks much cooler than just painting it on? It fits the theme of a 'patched-up, crazy matryoshka' really well, I think.
And here's a gorgeous full shot of just me, taken and post-processed by Iggie :D
Hope you like it ;D
