Japan Expo (held in Paris, France) is roughly a month away, and I’m absolutely terrified. I’ve never been to Japan Expo before so it’s a whole new experience, and there are so many amazing things happening there!! There’ll be tons of people from World Cosplay Summit 2013 there too so I can’t wait to see everyone again!
There are some amazing Tales of events happening, including the Tales of Ambassador competition. I’m entering this year (not that I think I have any chance to win – but nevermind!) and I can’t wait to meet more Tales fans there! And of course I can’t wait to go and see European Cosplay Gathering (ECG) for myself on the huge Japan Expo stage!
My current costume lineup is this: Madoka Kaname (Puella Magi Madoka Magica), Elize Lutus (Tales of Xillia), Rita Mordio (Tales of Vesperia) & Alicia (Tales of Zestiria).
Elize and Rita are both very simple costumes, but it means it’s less to pack and easier to wear. I also have one more super secret silly awesome costume in the works, but I can’t say anything about that yet!
Alicia’s armour is still underway so she has the most left to finish, but hopefully I’ll get her done soon with a few days of hard work ahead to get it all out of the way, tried and tested.
Madoka & Rita are almost done; just finishing touches to go, but they’re all time consuming and as always I’m just really impatient. It’s things like handsewing small details, bits of unpicking and resewing.. all of the little jobs I hate doing!
And thankfully Elize is a teeny job. I’m waiting on my hoodie arriving but otherwise she’s pretty much done! I’m probably looking forward to having an excuse to carry Teepo around with me the most!
So right now.. I should probably get back to sewing. There’s a lot of exciting stuff happening (and I’m about to send off my application for ECG this year too!) but time is just zooming past and I have so much to do!!
