Equuleuscia Eleutheria's Cosplay

HAUL!

Posted on: July 1, 2013

After my Taobao delivery, I decided to head out for a major cosplay shopping spree. Headed to Chinatown first, to gather all my pieces required for my Senbonzakura cosplay. It was so difficult to find the cloth that matched Miku’s beret! Pinkish dark lilac that has a little vintage feel. I ended up settling for a similarly coloured satin cloth. The gold linings needed for the costume was ridiculously expensive ):

After that I headed over to Bukit Panjang to pick up my UPS package. Their delivery sucks man. I’ve never encountered a problem where if they reroute the shipment (because nobody is at home), I cannot find my package. The delivery notice wrote in huge letters that my package was held in WESTMALL. I went there all week everyday to check but they said nothing came. It was really odd because the tracking status said that it had be signed for. When I called UPS, you know what they said? They said it was MY problem that I didn’t check the slip properly, because the package was being held at Bukit Panjang Plaza. SERIOUSLY. Even the address on the package wrote WESTMALL. Stupid people. Argh. At least my package is with me now.

Following on, I went over to Daiso and Popular to get more cosplay stuff. But Popular failed me ):
Being a thrift-seeker, I headed over to the Salvation Army to see if I could find things I could use for cosplay, and, I DID. I didn’t find what I intended to look for, but I did get something else for another cosplay. Haha. I also found a pair of semi-precious stone carved horses! I’ll need the expertise of Elisa to help me identify the stones, but these cream peach coloured horses are lovely. I don’t really care if they turn out to be some cheap stone, since they’re only $9, I love them because they’re horses. LOL!

Took a bus to Clementi to check-out the Popular en route home. ALSO no PVA foam, but I managed to find something I was looking for, for another cosplay at an underwear sale. LOLOLOL. I wanted to check if Clementi Bookstore (aka Big Bookshop) if they have PVA foam, but I had already made plans to meet a friend so I had to rush back.

Cosplay Steals for that day. I have a few more things to get on my list though. White ankle boots, red spray paint and a hot pink tube.

0.5 yard Synthetic leather – Senbonzakura
2 yard Pink cotton – Senbonzakura
4.5 yard Dark lilac satin – Senbonzakura
4 yard gold lining – Senbonzakura
1 yard Gold “string” – Senbonzakura
x2 Gold tassels – Senbonzakura
16″ Zipper – Senbonzakura
Buttons – Senbonzakura
Snap Fasteners – Luo Tian Yi
White tassel – Luo Tian Yi
Hot pink bottoms – Romeo & Cinderella Miku
Gold flats – Vintage Miku
Flowers – Heroine Amnesia

I was really bummed when the tailor called to tell me she was sick and couldn’t finish my Luo Tian Yi costume in time for Cosmo Youth Parde. I went as Sandplay Gumi instead. An entry for that event will be up soon! ^^
