This month's selection is slower paced with 2 of them being new age songs because I just came down with a bout of stomach flu, so I'm been doing nothing but sleeping and vomitting for the past 2 days. So I've dug up and dusted my collection of new age songs to calm me down and relax to at least get some sleep. I've forgotten just how much I loved them...
Re_birthday (Kagamine Len) : The final song to the Daughter of Evil series. Someone really ought to make an anime series of it instead of the total failure of the incredibly confusing Black Rock Shooter series. Royalty? Check. Deception? Check. Love story? Check! So please can an anime studio make this a series already?
Calendula Requiem (Kanon Wakeshima X Kanon of An Cafe) : A nice departure of Kanon Wakeshima from the predictable and somewhat boring, saccharine sweet lolita look of hers. She still looks sweet but in a different way and the music is still in her usual style. So hopefully, there'll be other music videos that will take her to different directions instead of sticking her in the same path.
Turning (Suzanne Ciani & Yu Chiyi) : I bought her CD some years back and after listening to it a number of times, I stuffed it into the back of my cupboard and totally forgot about it. But after listening to this track again, I'm falling in love with it all over again. Her music soothes me and makes me think of afternoon teas in a sunny garden with a good book...
May It Be (Enya): The theme song for Lord of The Rings. I love all the movies in the series and I really hope it'll be considered as a great a classic like Star Wars and Star Trek. I rememember having a friend once who was so into LOTR that she taught herself the Elfish language to the point she could not only speak it, but read and write it too!
Kanon D-Dur (Evangelion Death & Rebirth, Shinji: Cello, Asuka : Violin, Rei: Viola, Kaoru: Second Violin): Its really nice to see the four children all playing this piece together, and for once you get a sense of peace from them despite the constant bickering and death all around them. Evangelion definitely helps one to appreciate classical music in a different light, such as Beethoven's 9th Symphony that is often used in the battle scenes
Okay, I feel my stomach acting up again so wish my dear readers a happy new year once again! And hopefully have a better start then I do...

I left when the rest of the gang decided to head to another location because of heat exhaustion and my tights had torn so I felt kindda exposed.
But it was pretty fun and I learnt some new things about light exposure and such in photography whilst fiddling with a camera. Useful stuff to know so that I can get myself a betetr location next time when I do my own photoshoots haha!
I'll update soon about my Christmas celebration, but considering I don't have the usual family gathering this year, its kindda boring.

Firstly, this is how the costume is supposed to look like. The character is Ciel Phantomhive from the series Kuroshitsuji and he crossdressed in an attempt to avoid detection and get closer to the enemy
I loved this costume alot despite dying of heat, mostly which was caused by my long gloves. So I ended up taking it off whenever I was just standing around and I had to ask photographers to wait whenever they wanted to take a picture because I had to quickly shove them on.
Not the best event day because I overslept and ended up having to put my makeup on at the location itself inside the smelly, dirty toilets. Also, Esther was waiting for our friend to bring her wig and the friend ended up coming only at the later part of the day. So Esther was moody most of the day, not a very good person to hang out with. But I had no choice since I wasn't as close to the other cosplayers and it was bit redundant to walk around the place all alone. So I ended up missing abit of photo-taking opportunities because I was mostly sitting at the shop stall trying to cheer her up.
Not to mention, there were 3 other cosplayers who wore the exact same outfit as me and unlike me, they had at least one friend who was cosplaying the same series as them, so they had a person to pose with. And I so need to rant this out, there was this total cosf*ck of a person who I was so pissed at. She wore the exact same outfit as me except hers was so obviously made of some crappy cheap satin with a really tiny hat that was so small and tall that it almost looked like a miniature tophat. The hat wasn't worn to the side as shown by the character, hers was right ontop of her head and had the front brim pushed upwards. Not to mention, she didn't wear a hoop skirt so her dress was like completely flat and worse thing was, she had wavy brown hair and tried to scrimp on money and didn't wear a wig. She didn't even bloody bother to tie her hair into 2 ponytails and just walked around in that crap of an outfit she had on.
Worse thing was, because her friend's stall was directly opposite Esther's, she kept hanging out there and eyeballing me. Come on, like seriously? Your outfit is so crappy that what reason do you have to eyeball me for? Jealous much?
And I'm sniggling to myself now because after sifting through the photographs that have been uploaded at the forums, it seems no photographer took any pictures of her (except one where she totally photobombed a fellow cosplayer). That shows you how crappy your costume is, so stick your eyeballs back in your brain and try harder. Okay rant over!
Anyway, I'm trying to convince Mini to do a photoshoot with me for this costume since she's already done Sebastian for a few other people, so I need to bugger her and a photographer soon.

So just be patient, because I'm pretty sure when she's back at posting, her posts will definitely be worth the wait!
On a side note, Truc of sstardesire.blospot.com, recently awarded me the "Lovely Blog Award". Its amazing that I actually got a blog award since it was like the furthest thing from my mind when I actually started this blog and I'm glad that readers enjoy my posts and blog. So of course, I'd like to give this blog to some other bloggers:

P.S. I'll be updating my other cosplay soon, I have the majority of my pictures at hand, so I just need to arrange and edit some stuffs first, so be patient kays? Thanks!

So for STGCC, I ended up cosplaying as Rin Kagamine, neko (cat) version. Technically, there's no such version for the Kagamine twins as only Miku has ever been shown wearing this particular outfit. But Esther and Minichaos and I decided to do it as a team as it'll be more fun that way.
So pictures from the event:
One of my favourite pictures from the event. My mom says I don't look like I put on much makeup, but I swear I put on waay heavier then my usual daily makeup! "0(>.<)o"

I'm so glad that the next cosplay event has been pushed back to April so at least I can take a breather to save some money and get back to being just gyaru again for awhile. Plus I can get settled down to my new school and hopefully have more fun as compared to my sucky life in Polytechnic. I swear I was slowly counting down everyday I had to come to class and then just zoning out if I actually went to class.
But sad things aside, here's today's outfit (okay technically yesterday, I just noticed the time):

On a side note, I had a haircut done just recently. Steph introduced me to her hairstylist but there was some miscommunication between the hairdresser and I (my mandarin skills are of mediocre level) so I'm left with a too short fringe, heavy blunt layers at my jawline that remind me of Maikos (Japanese Shinto priestesses for those who don't know) and still unable to curl my hair like before. Haiz... I'm bordering on the line of kidnapping my ex-hairdresser and smuggling him back to Singapore very soon.....
I still have so much to prepare for my upcoming events and hopefully, Esther will be able to get my coscard format done in time. That way I'll have a coscard to pass out to people at the events yay!
Christmas is coming up soon so I gotta get ready presents for my loved ones, and after that it'll be the little staycation that the Bf and I will be having to celebrate our anniversary. Anyone wanna guess how long we;ve been together? Hee.....

Why? Because that's how Blogger works... damn it! Anyway after struggling with it for the past half hour or so, my initial plans to write up a post has kindda been zapped away by tiredness after fiddling with all the stupid applications I had to go through to get my desired outcome and redoing it after Blogger refused to accept any changes I had initially made.
I know the whole blog is now rather pink, but please bear with it for awhile, at least till I can get a better background image or someone kindly helps me out with it, anyone?
