Attack on Titan Cloak

First off, I would like to thank everyone for visiting my blog. It’s only April 8 and this blog has gotten over 300 visitors this month. =D

Attack on Titan is an anime, and some of the characters wear this cloak. Season 2 recently came out!!! I also have the AoT tan jacket so I’ll cosplay as Mikasa when I am free.

My Anime Cosplay Timeline (+3 more soon)

I started cosplaying 9 months ago. My plan is to get photos taken by other people, so that I have more than just mirror selfies.

Cosplaying is not that easy. It involves gathering the many different items of each character, and I’m still getting pieces for my older cosplays. It also requires spending $$$…. 😦

My Dream Crate

Loot Crate is a popular monthly subscription box service. Basically, you choose which crate you want (there’s anime, superhero, video game themed and other geeky gift ideas and subscriptions) and every month a box of 4-6 items arrive at your door! It’s a pleasant surprise to find out which items you got. Here’s an example so you know what I’m talking about.

Loot Crate reached out to me and asked me to come up with my dream Loot Crate. Since I love anime, my dream crate is anime themed. The box probably won’t be able to to fit a body pillow of Roronoa Zoro from One Piece, so I’ll leave this item out. I would totally want to get one though. 😛

1. Tickets to Japan.

LOL. If this is my dream crate, and my dream is to go to Japan and eat white strawberries and cosplay there then… this is the first thing I want!

…But if we are being a little more realistic, THIS is what I want.

Sailor Moon compact mirror 

Sailor-Moon-Transformation-Compact-Mirror-Gashpon-Toy-Release-620x400.jpg

I showed this to my girlfriends and they want one too. Guys can use it as well because it’s practical, or they can give it to their girlfriend, sister, daughter, friend, co-worker, or classmate.

2. Levi Ackerman nendoroid from Attack on Titan

o0515051512983812529.jpg

My only requirement is that I get the Cleaning Version.

3. One Piece flag

In my imagined dream anime fan room, this is definitely one of the things I want.

4. Ken Kaneki mask from Tokyo Ghoul

-Tokyo-Ghoul-Kaneki-Ken-Cosplay-Mask-most-New-Hot-Japanese-Anime-face-use-skull-mask.jpg

This is something I want for cosplay purposes, and I am hoping to get it one day!

5. Yuri!! on Ice socks

I love socks lol. If I could pick what gift people give me for my birthday or Christmas, I would ask for CUTE socks. They’re so practical!

Yuri!! on Ice socks are cute, and I would really appreciate having this in my crate.

6. Rem mug from Re:Zero

tb2ky5fagnyqebjssplxxalwvxa__1720271586.jpg

Mugs are practical. I want to be able to have things I can actually use in my crate. When I have the time to watch anime, I spend days without leaving the house (true story). I lock myself in my room and end up with like 5 cups in my room. You can never have too many mugs. Rem is so cute!

Death Note notebook

I did a gift exchange with fellow blogger, Bambi. You should check out her blog! Bambi lives in America while I am in Canada.

I got the notebook from the anime, Death Note! P.S. I took these photos on my bed so that explains the stuffed animals.

Nice cover material

Third page of the rules

20170313_212221_mh1489466047600

The rules are all there 😛

String and feather pen

To my pleasant surprise, there are already names in here. The names of the actual characters who died are here. The writings are in Japanese Kanji. I appreciate this because it sticks closer to the original series and not the English dub. Do not fret, I can read some Chinese (which is basically the same as Kanji) which means I will help in translating. I’ll show some photos, but please – if you have not watched or finished the series but plan to, stop reading here. These are spoilers! I did not take photos of all the written names because that would be a lot.

The first name Light Yagami wrote in the Death Note: Kurou Otoharada. He was the criminal at the nursery home. Light tested out the Death Note by writing his name.

20170313_214622_mh1489466842135

Takuo Shibuimaru’s name is written in different ways. Light wasn’t sure of the spelling of his name. He was the person on a motorcycle who was harrassing a woman. At this point Light was still testing out the notebook.

20170313_213031_mh1489466452502

Lind L. Tailor was a criminal sentenced to die, and went on live television while pretending to be L. This was L’s plan to find clues on Kira. Light killed him, thinking that he was the real L.

20170313_213042_mh1489466280191

Light tests the boundaries of the Death Note by getting inmates to do strange tasks, before their deaths.

20170313_213133_mh1489466313886.jpg

In order to get the identity of the agent following him, Light comes up with an elaborate plan involving the death of criminal Kiichiro Osoreda.

20170313_213146_mh1489466227849

Both Light and Raye Penber write on this page. Penber kills all 12 FBI agents without even knowing it! It is cool to know the number of characters who have touched and/or written in this notebook.

20170313_212340_mh1489466411471

Naomi Misora (killed by Light) and Kiyomi Takada (killed by Teru Mikami) are amongst the other names written inside.

The last name in this is Light’s name, written by Ryuk.

20170313_212403_mh1489466385705

The notebook has the major names of victims killed by the Death Note. It does not have all the names (which I am thankful for because A LOT of criminals died in the series). It is not 100% accurate. For example, the page Penber wrote on was ripped out of the Death Note. The fact that it has the important deaths in one place is something that I like.

The rest of the notebook pages are blank, free for the owner to use. Hence, the feather pen. You may be wondering if I will be writing in this. I wanted this because I am a huge fan of the anime, and also for cosplay purposes. As far as I know, I will not be writing names down.

Jiro Wang 汪東城 List of Anime Cosplays
