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.

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! ^_^
I went to Grouse Mountain, also known as the Peak of Vancouver. I’ve been there when I was younger, but it’s my first time back as an adult.

on the chairlift
The chairlift was probably the funnest part for me, and we saw a big bear while sitting on it. The view of Vancouver was pretty – the land surrounding the water bodies in the second photo is the city.
Posting this in case you forgot what I look like when I’m not in cosplay lmao
Who else didn’t cry while watching Violet Evergarden? Getting called stone cold and heartless was quite amusing. Hahaha! Still, it was a lovely anime with beautiful visuals.
I bought a dress today.
I prefer colder weather, but cold grass jelly tastes so good in summer. I’ve moved on from drinking grass jelly drinks and now I’m eating the actual grass jelly. I add brown sugar and hot water and it tastes yummy after cooling it in the fridge.
Not my picture
I know a lot of people add it to their milk teas. I like that too, but I usually just eat out of the bowl like that. LOL

Yup, it’s the Attack on Titan Season 3 opening. I know some people don’t like it because it’s not Linked Horizon. It sounds amazing to me.
Inko Midoriya is the mother of Izuku (Deku), the protagonist of My Hero Academia.
I’ve cosplayed as high school girls (even though I’ve graduated from high school some years ago), as boys, and now I’ve cosplayed as a mother. I’ve even cosplayed as characters I don’t like before!
Fun fact: I sewed the apron!
Edit: It was brought to my attention that the wig for my Inko cosplay is not dark green enough. I completely agree, but I also wanted to say that the wig was originally used in an earlier cosplay. I didn’t spend a single cent on this cosplay.
I just found out that Bii has his own filter in the beauty app, Meitu. Be Your Light is a newer song of his. The filter is punny because Bii and Be sound the same. I dedicated a blog post to him last year. You can read about him HERE.
This is way overdue but thank you Cammy for watching a drama I reviewed and recommended! It’s the Boys Love Taiwanese drama, HIStory 2: Boundary Crossing. Cammy told me that she gave it a 5/5 rating!
Also check out Neha’s first impressions post on Cunning Single Lady. I recommended this Korean drama in an earlier blog post of mine and I feel so happy whenever people take the time to listen to my recommendation and watch the show!
I’ve been posting a lot of cosplay pictures but I would also like to post more photos of me being myself.
Looking back at photos from just a few months ago (Sept 2017 – Jan 2018), I feel like I looked so young. I felt young too. I don’t really dress like this anymore. Bye bye, this style. (By the way, this is kind of a response or update to this post. I’m not sure why it’s one of my most popular posts hahaha.)
- choker & Tokyo Ghoul anime necklace
- hoodies & layers
- pigtails & side pony tail
- not shown: brown combat boots
I don’t know why my clothing style changes every few months. Maybe I get tired of the same style. I like to think that I’m always changing and evolving. c:
Now I like to wear wide black pants with Adidas Superstar sneakers. I don’t have photos yet because I just got into the style, hahaha. Even the jewelry I wear is different too. I don’t take as many outfit photos anymore but maybe there will be an update in the future…
Episodes 9 and 10 of My Hero Academia season 3 were amazing. I’ll watch every episode, but the episodes with villains are the ones I care about the most. If the episode’s focus is solely on the students, it’s not as enjoyable for me. In these recent episodes, I loved it how the professional superheroes came together to fight the villains. It was cool seeing the villains in one place. I am especially interested in the relationship between Tomura, my favourite character, and his master.

I really like these flowers because they look like flowers you would see in an enchanted forest! There were a whole field of them.
