GUMI Megpoid Cosplay – Difficult Love/Nankai Renai

Nankai Renai is a song by GUMI, one of my favourite vocaloids. The song is about a difficult love. This was my first time expressing more sad expressions in cosplay.

I really love this cosplay. Of course, I worked with a team.

Makeup: @ayyshebitty

None of these photos are edited. I attended cosplayers Hana and Baozi’s panel on posing for cosplay the other week and they said that research is very important. Research on finding a suitable location to shoot and also expressing what the character feels in the source material. Time of day to shoot is also important, in which they recommended cosplaying in the evening.

That’s why I chose a dock as the location during a time that was not hot. I tried to replicate some of the poses from the music video, and the photographer was great with directing the shots.

The shots wouldn’t look nearly as good if it weren’t for my makeup artist! So I am very, very thankful to my team, and also to my readers for supporting me in my cosplay hobby! ^_^

15. and a surprise… I have a lolita dress but I haven’t worn it yet. Lolita fashion is something I’ve been wanting to get into for many years. I am still missing a petticoat and maybe other things, like hair accessories. I am totally new to this!

Characters I plan to do again/improve

1. Mitsuha from Your Name – I wished for the Your Name hair tie/bracelet, so I’ll have to see if my Secret Santa got it for me. I’ve never worn this cosplay out before and I have the shoes and bag.

2. Akashi from Kuroko no Basuke – I need someone to take a photo of the back of my jacket for me. There is a surprise.

3. Misa Amane from Death Note – My MUA for my Cardcaptor Sakura and Osomatsu-san (girls version) cosplays told me that she would love to do my makeup for Misa!

4. Umaru from Himouto! Umaru-chan – I plan to take more photos with more props.

5. Koushi from Haikyuu!! – I recently bought his shorts!


A wish of mine is to take cosplay photos with cherry blossoms while they are in full bloom! ^^

ALSO… if you live in the Lower Mainland in British Columbia, Canada and would like to purchase my cosplay clothes/wigs/other stuffs, send me a message! I would love to sell some cosplays but there are a few I plan on keeping. Just ask! 🙂
