How's it going? I hope you're fine and can enjoy the summer weather at least to an extent (I really can't; I love summer, but I absolutely hate this tropical heat >D).
After quite a while I decided to post something about my last conventions before the Connichi Cosplays stress REALLY kicks in and I'm too tired and too lazy to post something XD" (so, in the next weeks, it will be mostly Connichi preparation stuff that you can expect here :D).
But first things first!
1.) NiSa-Con in Braunschweig
From the 06.07. - 07.07.2013 the NiSa-Con (NiSa stands for "Niedersachsen" -> "lower saxony") was held in Braunschweig. It was a really small conventions with many young and unexperienced Cosplayers, but that wasn't bad, because we (and with "we" I mean my good friend Zhenya, her boyfriend and myself) could chill out because of that :D Noone wanted to take pictures of us all the time, there weren't many people around, the weather was perfect cosplay weather und we could do all the things that you can't do at bigger conventions, because you're always busy with something else XD
We did Karaoke, we went to the AMV-Night, we watched Animes in the Video Room and played some games in the Games Room ;D (I tried "Dragonball Budokai" and got beat by Raditz XD" and lost to Zhenya in "BlazBlue"...but well...I'm not really the gaming-type, lol.)
We both even made it into the newspaper with our X1999 Cosplays, which was really unexpected, because the article almost was a whole newspaper's site!
Here you can read the article (if you're German ;D):
I have to say the day was really fun and of course a relaxing day, so that Cosplay even with the warm weather was a blast! I really enjoyed it to wear my Arashi costume together with the beautiful Zhenya as Yuzuriha! <3 I felt VERY comfortable in this Cosplay and would want to wear it again...but well...it is already to large for me, 'cause I lost quite some weight in a short time >D In the future I will sell it probably, but I want to keep it for myself a while, 'cause I can't give it away yet ;__; Arashi is just one of my favourite characters of all time and I really can't seperate myself from this costume yet xD.
All pictures were taken by Zhenya or her boyfriend Antoni! Thank you! ♥
2.) First Lolita Meet-Up
Yes! I finally went to my first Lolita fashion meet-up in Braunschweig! (Braunschweig again XD but this city is sooooo beautiful! *_*)
I was invited and of course I wanted to meet again with some of my friends from the Northern part of Germany that I haven't had met for a long time ;___;
So I searched for some stuff to wear, like a skirt that a bought 3 years ago (it fits again! I was sooo happy! XD) and some parts of the outfit I sewed myself ^^ The blouse I wore was borrowed from Zhenya and I must say I felt quite comfortable in the whole outfit. I thought taht the "Sweet Style" doesn't fit me, but it isn't actually so bad, I just love "classic" a bit more ;)
here you can see some pictures!
(again, the pictures were taken by Zhenya! :D)
Because this isn't Cosplay I decided to keep the look more natual and not use as much Make-Up as I use to when I do Cosplay. I also wore my natural contact-lenses for this occasion and I'm quite happy with it ^^ I look like a different person somehow and more innocent, but I think this is just for the benefit of Lolita fashion, don't you think? ;D
The Meet-Up was really nice, the people were friendly and we had a delicious picnic! *_*
Just....the aftermath of this particular day wasn't so good XD (some people know what I mean /D)
Because of the NiSa-Con and this Meet-Up I had 25 insect bites on my legs (yes, 25! 8D). Some of them were as big as tennis balls the day after that, so my mom and I decided to drive to the hospital in the saturday afternoon. Because my last tetanus vaccination was 8-10 years ago, we really had to pay attention to that, othwerwise I could have gotten a trombose in my leg and that really isn't nice >D
So I had to lay still for 2 whole days and my left hand got a gypsum xD" wasn't a good week, but I'm okay now ;D
Nevertheless I really enjoyed both events and was happy to meet my friends again ♥
And because I mentioned my friend Zhenya a lot in this post, I just want you to give you the links to her facebook Cosplay page and her Lolita fashion blog! :D
here you go:
That's it for today!
The next days there will be a bit more Cosplay progress in this blog again!
See ya ♥
