Lelouch Lamperouge Cosplay Teaser

Update update on my newest costume: Lelouch Lamperouge in Ashford Academy uniform! This one is for a supposed shoot but due to some circumstances, I was the only one who prepared for it in the end. I was disappointed about it but when I look at the bright side, I have a cosplay waiting for any shoot or event in the future.

Lelouch Lamperouge
I decided to go for the Ashford Uniform because I wanted to see if the character suits me well or not. Turns out it was fun to piece up the cosplay even though I had a few problems during it's progress. (Link to the :Lelouch's wig ordering problem)

Fabric and photo reference for the seamstress. It's important to print out a large photo of the costume in all the angles especially if the seamstress that you hired does not have any knowledge in anime or cosplaying. I suggest that you should consult the seamstress first and talk about the costume and the appropriate fabric measurements for your size.

Yeah I admit I can't sew the costume myself because I don't have any knowledge to do it. And I just got the finished product just this afternoon and here's what it looks like:

Tadaa! Ain't it awesome? I was kind of excited to wear the wig with it then take a good teaser shot but laziness got the best of me so please please bear with the 'peace yow' teaser photo. :)

Will update you guys more on this cosplay. This one is becoming my favorite next to the Ichigo cosplay. :)

Wigs in Cosplay

The wig essential in cosplay because it completes the portrayal of the character. Without the wig (since most of the characters have out-of-this-world hair color and style) some fans may not recognize the character being cospalyed. A wig can make or break a cosplay too so choosing the right wig is important too.

Some characters can be cosplayed using your own hair. Take for example this trial I made a few months ago:

Mari Makinami of Neon Genesis Evangelion 2.0
Styling your hair must be done in order to look closer to the character.

Some of my wigs...
Some of my wigs are made of kanekalon fiber. These wigs are durable and heat resistant so it can be styled in anyway you want using correct methods. Most of the cosplay wigs are made of kanekalon especially those that are sold online. Some brands like the Lucaille, Grand Yound and Fantasy Sheep offers a lot of styles of wigs in different prices. Of course Kanekalon wigs cost more than those synthetic wigs because of the quality.

My wig here is from Lucaille

Synthetic wigs are those shiny wigs in lower prices. Some of these wigs are easily damaged and are not heat resistant. So styling it may result to breakage of the fibers.

Low quality wig
The blonde wig above is cheaper than the Gakupo wig but its quality is also low. Styling it results to breakage of the fibers. This particular wig (which was bought from a local store) cannot be easily combed since the strands come off easily. One should take extra care in handling this kind of wig.

The other type of wig brand that I own is Meilifang.

Meilifang wig for Ichigo cosplay
This wig is also made of kanekalon fiber and is easily styled even without using any hair products. This is also an advantage in buying kanekalon wigs. You can order one that is already styled since most of the manufacturers of this kind of wigs offers pre-styled wigs. So minimal styling is needed before wearing it for a cosplay.

I need a wig for cosplay. Where should I buy one?
Online shopping is one of the ways in buying a wig since most branded wigs are only available online. Ebay is a good place to find kanekalon wigs that are already styled. Facebook online shopping is also a choice in buying wigs but be extra careful because we can never be sure of the legitimacy of the shops since they do not use Paypal in accepting payment for orders. 

For more questions, comment below. I will reply back as soon as I can.

MCTV MOVIE MANIA 2012 Report (Part 3 of 3 - Day Two)

Yaay! Awards Night! 
See the top photo? Yeah, I won an award! Yaay! Never expected that coming. I just wore a simple costume. I wished I had a video of it so that I can post it here. Too bad.
Maybe the judges liked the manriki-swinging freak. :D
Anyway, enough of it. Here are my some photos of the event held last February 4, 2012 at Mindpro Citimall Cinema 1.

Photos photos!
There were a couple of kawaii cosplayers on day two. Kiddies dressed up as Gaara and Sasuke!

We were asked to do our catwalk again, a short version of it. While waiting for our turn, we had fun taking some funny photos. :)

I was soooo out-of-character on that day! I cannot stop myself. It was so much fun!
