One of my good friend, Arciel is creating this manga called D.I.C.E.
She was introducing her characters one at a time. And when she introduced the first girl of the cast, I immediately did a quick trial with it. ;)
She said I nailed it. But yeh, maybe I’ll cosplay her with the complete outfit! ^__^

I styled the bangs of my Kanu Unchou wig and turned it into a Saeko Busujima Wig. Success! ^_____^v

My Ivankov Cosplay!
The most daring cosplay I have ever made, YET!
Costume + Makeup + Accessories: Me!
Thank you to Nikooru for doing my jolly roger “tattoo”. She said it was a “soft” experience. lol.
And thank you to the ever so great Francis Legarda for the amazing shots! :D
The only thing I bought for this outift is the wig that cost me Php250.00 only. =) The whole outift (+boot covers), I made with excess fabric and items from previous cosplays.
It was fun to cosplay Iva-chan. Everybody noticed who I am. Everybody was calling “Iva-sama” or “Iva-chan” and then I’ll wink at them. lololol.
I had mixed reactions of course (with the frontal cleavage and all).
I had couple of guys approaching me and telling me to take care at the con. (sweet). =”>
Overall, it was a really really FUN time with Ivankov-sama. ^____^v
Here’s a preview of my Ivankov Cosplay.

Emporio Ivankov Cosplay
After Nidalee, I got back to a One Piece character. ^___^v
Having me all lazy to buy new materials, I came up with Ivankov. I had excess leather cloth from my Nico Robin blazer, I have beads from my Yui Necklace and I have excess rubbersheets too.
The only thing I bought for this cosplay was the wig. I had to finish all the items first before I got to convince myself to get out and search for it.
Here’s the items I made for this cosplay:
Necklace: plain white beads + nylon thread + necklace connecting thingies
Crown: Rubbersheets + Cloth + Gems
Gloves: once I used from my Nico Robin cosplay (spandex leatherette)
Boots: same boots I used for Robin too, had exact fabric left over to make me boot covers.
Outfit: Stretch Leather (I’ll post the whole outfit next ^ 3^)
My Latest Work: Nidalee - Default Skin from League of Legends
Before anybody would bash me.. I will bash myself..
I haven’t got to put the “bones” at my weapon and at my skirt.. the supposed to be “sleeves” fell off and made it look like a part of the arm guard.
I used blue contacts instead of yellow.
I used the wrong shade of fur, the cut of my hair was on the other side..
overall, i still LOVE it.
haters gon’ hate.. but yeh.. it’s 100% my work (my first self-made weapon!!!). so I’m still proud of it.

Kanu Unchou Dragon Spear: commissioned from Monochrome Graffiti
I was so stoked when I get to see the final product in person! >W<
It’s so detailed and really sturdy. The crafter decided not to make it in two parts since the original plan for this cosplay was to enter it at a competition having the spear to sway it all over the place. :P
- - but yeah, not went as planned again.
Materials Used: PVC Pipe (pole part) + Rubber Sheets (Dragon Head) + Wood (Spear Part)
Credits to Monochrome Graffiti for the Photos and the weapon!
*I look so nerdy~ I love it. harhar.
Kanu Unchou Kimono Close Up.
Here’s a photo roll of the “two-part-Kimono” I made. Posted this one for the lovely Jelly who asked for tips on how I made it.
Hope this helps! ;)
I used stretch velvet for the whole thing.
for the inner V-Neck Line of it, I put a stiff garter first before I put the white lining so as to not make the cloth move all over the place. It quite holds it position ^___^. Putting interfacing might help too.
For the skirt-part, I just wrapped the rest of the fabric at my waist and set how it drapes and how high the slit would be, then I cut it as it is. I have the white band hold everything together.
I hope all that helps!
hi! i saw that you sew together a kimono and i was wondering if you have any tips i could use to sew my own since i am "trying" to sew my own :)
Oh hi Jelly! ^0^
