I haven't written anything here for quite a while, time to mend my ways. I'll sum the year up for the entire Imperia later. Meanwhile here's what I've done this year, not including fem versions, Takenaka Hanbei's (Sengoku Basara) originals and one more set for the marquis.
I told you how lucky our cosplay group is with its photographer
? I don't mind saying it again! We did several sets this autumn, and I can't even choose which I like best. And now it's winter, and last week was our last shoot this year. Hanbei's armor. Two years I've been longing to make it, two years, and a good thing is I've waited to tackle it. This time gave me the opportunity not only to improve my cosplay armor making skills, but also to study Japanese armor of the Sengoku period. I hope it all has resulted in not the worst cosplay of this version of the armor. My hands hate me [and still hurt], my sewing machine is afraid of me, my other tools are just cowering in the corners. But my illusion is still with me. I'm dying to see new photos)))
And who's the fool here? I am. I'm starting a new cosplay. I've wanted it for a couple of years, but in an abstract way. Yes, it's Warhammer 40 000. I'm not saying anything specific, we'll see
how it turns out. I hope to bring it to my favorite festival, Animatrix, which will be held in Moscow on the last weeekend of January. May it come sooner, I'm terribly missing my friends, whom I can meet only there [that's the trouble of living in a vast country with steep airplane ticket prices].
New plans for cosplay? Yes, I've got them. Yes, I realize that, perhaps, I'm too old for it, but I still want to, so there, bear with me.
