This year has been a bit manic, especially with ECG to prepare for this summer I’ve kind of fallen off the wagon with updates.. hopefully I’ll fix that soon!
So what’s been happening?
Well, in March I returned to Anime Go! in Wallsend, where I helped organise the cosplay aspects of the event and gave two beginner talks: “Cosplay Talk” & “Choosing A Cosplay Costume”! They were really well received, with different tips for people getting started and what cosplay as a hobby can offer you.

As you can see, I wore Shallotte Elminus from Atelier Shallie which is always a nice costume to wear as it sparks a lot of conversation with people – I got lots of questions about the construction, which parts were bought/made, fabrics etc which makes it easy to explain to people who might be starting out as cosplayers.
The library is hoping to run Anime Go! again next year, which I should be helping out with again – hopefully making it bigger and better with even more fun stuff to do!
Otherwise I’ve been busy as a bee with prep for ECG this July! I’m going to put up a more thorough post about how the costume and preparation is going soon, but for now here’s a sneak peek of some of the materials and work I’ve been doing:
There is an awful lot to be done, but I’m optimistic I can get it all ready in time for the finals! I hope anyone attending enjoys my performance too. Til next time!
