I love this photo because it's very balanced. The costume looks amazing and the cosplayer is in a perfect stance that suits her warrior...



2015 Year of the Sheep by MisatoLx

For many years, ever since my first trip to Japan, where I spent shogatsu, New Year Holidays, probably the most important holidays in Japan, I've been making "nengajou", New Year postcards, featuring the current year animal in the Chinese Zodiac. Contrary to the Chinese, the Japanese celebrate New Year using the Western calendar and they make and send nengajou to their friends and family during the first days of the New Year for good luck. You can google or go to wikipedia to know more about it.

My first series was made of vectorial illustrations featuring my alter-ego dressed up in something related to the respective year/animal. maybe I will upload that series later to DA. This current series features my Blythe dolls, wearing some kind of prop related to the animal. All the props and clothes (except when noted) are handmade by me, under my Blythe doll clothes label Leo COUTURE. The sayings are in Japanese, because nengajou are a Japanese thing, and in Portuguese, my mother tongue. They say "Happy New Year!!" and "Happy 20--!!" respectively. You can see the previous years here:

Cosplay-wise, which will remain my feature at DA, at the end of 2014 I had to make some decisions, my budget and sometimes my available time unfortunately don't allow me to make many cosplays a year and I decided to postpone the one I was planning for this year. I will be working on my cosplay for next year, 2016, which will celebrate my 20 years as a cosplayer, and naturally is an elaborate, more expensive and more spectacular costume than I usually make.

During 2015 I will be wearing my La Andromeda Promethium cosplay and a new Yuuko Ichihara one I made at the end of 2014. I hope I can make some nice photos of both to feature here. I will also post some WIPs of both sometime soon. But as cosplay plans don't tend to stick all the time, and I bought some stuff in promotions and Black Friday, maybe, maaaybe I'll make a new cosplay around spring-summer time. We'll see...

Oh, I don't know. Last time it was held at IberAnime, a twice a year big event here, but I haven' heard about it since. The ECG is usually in September, it has been the only regular international competition. But I can check, there's a cosplay ball this Saturday and can ask the other cosplayers.

I would love to, if you could.
 Their website is not very quick up to date. Plus it would be nice to combine meeting DA friends, seeing EC friend + a little portugal siteseeing with it. :)

I talked to some of my fellow Portuguese cosplayers at the ball and unfortunately there seems not to be a WCS this year. Basically they told me it was supposed to be at IberAnime Lx in May, but there hasn't been any kind of announcement and it's becoming too late to prepare anything. If I hear anything about it, I'll make sure to tell you.
