What cosplaying has taught me /// Ce que le cosplay m’a appris

I am a huge fan of cosplay – a mix of « costume » and « play », making your own outfit and impersonating whatever character you choose from a manga, anime, movie, TV series, game etc. I absolutely love attending conventions and just stare at the amazing work of the dedicated cosplayers live, wonder how much time and money professional cosplayers must spend on their projects and just burn with eagerness to throw myself as well in that crafting adventure.

Je suis une grande amatrice de cosplay – mix de « costume » et « play », de fabriquer sa propre tenue à l’image de n’importe quel personnage de manga, anime, film, série TV, jeu etc. de son choix. J’adore participer aux conventions où je peux admirer de près l’incroyable travail des cosplayers, me demander combien de temps et d’argent les professionnels ont dû investir dans leurs créations et brûler d’envie de me lancer moi-même dans ce genre d’aventures de manufacture. 

I am by no means comparing myself to all the professional cosplayers out there, it is definitely out of my league. But I very much enjoyed each and every cosplay project I have finished over the past few years and I must say that I am loving it more and more every time. Today I would like to share with you my point of view on cosplay and what it has taught me until now.

Je ne me compare en aucun cas à tous les cosplayers professionnels, nous ne jouons bien sûr pas du tout dans la même cour. Cependant, j’ai pris beaucoup de plaisir dans chacun de mes projets de cosplay au fil des dernières années et je dois avouer que cela me plaît de plus en plus. Aujourd’hui, j’aimerais partager avec vous mon point de vue sur le cosplay et ce que j’ai pu en apprendre.  Lire la suite de « What cosplaying has taught me /// Ce que le cosplay m’a appris »

6 on 6 challenge: White in January

We’re kicking off 2016 with a new edition of the monthly 6 on 6 challenge! I was happy with January’s color theme; turned out I had lots of ideas and I have to say that I am quite satisfied with my photos. If you want to know more about the challenge, you can find a description in my first 6 on 6 post here. Now, without further ado, I give you my geeky white selection!

Final Fantasy Moogles

Me and my boyfriend loved playing FFXIV. An awesome MMORPG where one of the cutest creatures are Moogles (kupo!). There is a rumor that seeing a Moogle brings luck. Well, we have two of them sitting in our living room ^^

Kunieda Aoi cosplay

All-white cosplay from one of my favorite shônen: Kunieda Aoi in Beelzebub! Even though the cosplay wasn’t the most difficult to pull off, I was very proud of it in front of Beelzebub’s author Tamura Ryûhei. He actually said to me that he was « honored to meet miss Kunieda in person » and his editor took a bunch of pictures of me to show back in the offices in Japan. I was thrilled to meet Tamura-sensei and the fact that I could have a real and comprehensive conversation fully in Japanese with this incredibly talented mangaka was definitely one of my greatest geeky experiences ever.

Nerdy mugs

I am a huge fan of tea and coffee. And what better is there than enjoying a delicious beverage in a geeky mug? Especially when you have a lightsabre spoon to give it the right finishing touch…

Snuggle panda blanket

An awful impulse purchase that turned out to be one of the best nerdy things I own now. Soft like Bulle’s fur, big enough to roll myself in it while watching a movie or reading a book… it even has a sewn-in pillow which makes it even more comfortable. Besides, there’s a girly panda involved so it’s just cute.

Kawaii gift

Last Monday I received a surprise letter from Anne Lee at Chic Pixel. That beautiful card with a heart-warming message and the super cute stationery made my day. And my new datebook is now filled with kawaii stickers and cards, thank you so much Anne Lee for this lovely gesture!

SNOW!

To me, a top of mind answer to the white color is snow. Tons of it. The picture above is in my opinion one of the best I have ever took. No filter, no correction, no nothing. Beautiful nature in the French Alps and a random tiny little house. I think that I love this picture so much because it shows perfectly the mood of that place; total peace and quiet, breath-taking landscapes, and the memory of walking there hand in hand with the person that I love. Pure hapiness. But hey, if you don’t think it’s geeky enough to be featured at the 6 on 6 challenge, I prepared a counter proposal with this one below:

I hope that you enjoyed my interpretation of the white challenge. What about your geeky white stuff? Tell me all about it! Happy blogging 🙂
