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! ^_^
Umaru is from the anime, Himouto! Umaru-chan. I’ve cosplayed as her before, but not in her school uniform. You can see my cosplay of her off-mode self here.
I thank two of my closest friends for these photos. They were patient and withstood the cold. It makes me happy that my cosplays have improved a lot, compared to my earlier work. It’s increasingly becoming more “easy” and the photos are turning out better with very minimal editing. There are more photos of this cosplay, but I will be posting them on my cosplay Instagram account.
P.S. I got a wisdom tooth removed during the weekend. I don’t think I had swelling. ^^ I actually ate solid foods the next day hahaha.

Winning does not make me feel happy, and losing does not make me feel sad. With that being said, I am not competitive at all. Sometimes I lose arguments on purpose and I have no problems apologizing to people. To me, it’s not a question of pride but rather a lack of interest to engage in that interaction.
I hardly catch myself feeling jealous of another person. Some people are really accomplished but I either feel happy for them or I don’t care at all. ‘Not caring’ may sound bad but it’s not. *Shrugs*
No filter, in Vancouver, BC. Many people get mixed up between plum blossoms and cherry blossoms. There are many differences, but perhaps the easiest way is by looking at the petals. Cherry blossoms have a split at the end of each petal, while plum blossoms (pictured above) do not.
I like to think of myself as a creative person, and that is why I take pictures, cosplay and draw. This blog is my personal space to express myself. I don’t see it as showing off at all. I blog for myself but everyone is welcome to read.
