Recently got back from Otafest 2014. Now to lightroom all the things and then I will upload. Got some great pictures of Quark, some ridiculous pictures of Mikasa, and barely any of Alice cuz ugh Sunday no energy to take photos (also it was rainy and grey). I'll do a shoot for her sometime this summer as I just finished the skull for the back of the dress (yes it lights up - I'll be posting a brief tutorial for it later) and built a pepakura vorpal blade - credit to JouzuMania for the pattern.

I did enter Alice into the Otafest Cosplay Showcase and placed Runner-up Journeyman again this year (as I did for Tsuruhime last year). But this year Yaya Han was a judge, which was actually quite nice because she really places emphasis on good sewing skills (more my forté than prop-making). Also she flipped my seams and asked for a photo (yah I know she loves the Alice games; I've seen her Red Queen cosplay and was like oh shit maybe I chose the wrong costume to enter woops, but I guess it worked out for the best).

Now to do some much-needed everyday sewing (I have a shit ton of dresses to take in cuz I'm disproportionate) and then start on fem-Noiz for Athon.
After that, I decided instead of just oggling over it for eternity, I'm gonna take the next year to build/sew this Tsukiji Nao design of Anri from Adekan. I've found that rather than doing many less-extravagant costumes and having trouble finishing them all on time, I'm going to instead focus on one or two costumes and do them very thoroughly, prop/weapon and all. When I completed Tsuruhime and her bow I just felt the most satisfaction I ever have in a costume and hence, it's my favourite one to wear. I'd like to keep that feeling.

Beggin' your pardon, Miss. But may I ask if your going to Otafest Aurora in Calgary at the end of the month?
kamshaticum Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Unfortunately I'm not T.T   I don't live in Calgary, so making the trek down and back just for one day is a bit much, but I will most likely be going to the regular Otafest in May again if you're attending^^

That leads to my question, How are the Otafests? I'm thinking of going.

Otafest is a fantastic. I've been going for 5 years now and the reason I keep going back is it's just such a great atmosphere. After attending a variety of cons across Canada and the States I can say it's a pretty well-organised and well-run con. The last couple years it's really grown in attendance, probably with the addition of J-Rock concerts, and with that they've been able to upgrade the prizes for all their contests (which is pretty sweet), and introduce some other things like pin trading. They usually have a Much Music Video Dance as well which I know a lot of us look forward to, as well as your typical Anime dance (tho the DJ for that can be hit/miss). Also, the closing ceremonies are probably the most entertaining of all, so if you go, definitely stick around for that!

Hi, could I ask where you got your Alice cosplay from?
kamshaticum Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
That would be from my own two hands, with help from Fabricland and Michael's.

Would you be interested in a commission from me to make the alice outfit?

Saw your Alice cosplay in the OLD productions video and I was really cheered up by your dancing~ It was super cute and original. I hope to see more stuff you do. I'm so happy I found your dA!

Maybe I'll someday see you at a con~ The only US con I can go to is Sakura-con since I live in Canada but one day perhaps! Anyway thanks for the uplifting dance :D
