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.

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! ^_^

Cosplays: Gumi & Koushi

I cosplayed as Gumi again from her song, Nankai Ren’ai (Difficult Love). It’s a cute song about liking a boy.

I also cosplayed as Koushi again from Haikyuu!! because I realized I never took a photo of the shorts.

Gumi Matryoshka Cosplay

I won a prize in WeekendOtaku‘s series of Your Lie in April posts. I got to choose my own prize and chose a wig for Gumi. The third photo is the true colour. Thanks WeekendOtaku!

You can read his blog posts on YLIA here. I definitely encourage you to read them because it’s clear that he gave each topic a lot of thought. A lot of anime bloggers can agree with me on this.

The wig is really good quality. I love it a lot.

I cosplayed as the vocaloid, Gumi. This look is from her song, Matryoshka. It is a collab song with Hatsune Miku. I’ll cosplay as Gumi again when someone can take photos for me. I also have her socks, shoes and skirt.

I’ll also be cosplaying as Gumi in a school uniform from another music video in the future!

How to Keep Your Pins From Falling Out

So you got some pins. Now what??

IMG_20170730_224417_318

Before you pin them to your bags or clothes, here’s a tip. Take a plastic earring stud back and put it on the back like so. I’ve lost all my pins from high school because I didn’t do this. Then I did this to my Lelouch (from Code Geass) pin and I still have it a year later.

If you don’t have the stud backs, I saw them at my local dollar store. No need to buy actual earrings hahaha.

If you’re interested in what my new pins are…

  • Rin and Len Kagamine
  • Luka Megurine (see clip below)
  • Karamatsu (Osomatsu-kun)
  • Mikasa Ackerman (Attack on Titan)
  • Sailor Moon
