Equuleuscia Eleutheria's Cosplay

Cosmo Parader Tag and Me!

I was really bummed when the tailor called me to tell me she was sick and couldn’t finish my Luo Tian Yi costume in time for the event. It couldn’t be blamed, since so many people were falling sick from the recent haze.

I decided to cosplay as Sandplay Singing of the Dragon/The Miniature Garden Where the Dragon Howls Gumi. To complete the cosplay, I painted my nails a lilac and pink combination and stuck on flowers. Nails do sometimes show up on photos, so please make sure you keep them picture perfect as well! Painted or unpainted.

Once again, my cosplay bag to the rescue! It fit my costume PLUS my boots. Awesome. I brought another backpack along for my cosmetics and wig. People were asking me where I was even before I left my house! Looks like you cannot be late for an event :/

Once at the event area, I dare not slack anymore and quickly set to work. Well. I still need more practice on makeup. More shadow, blush and brows needed.

Had a test shoot with buddies Sleepycs and Bri, along with their friend, while I waited for Incy to finish her makeup.

Event later was lovely. Met up with a few of my cosplay friends! Haha. Didn’t manage to camwhore though :XPhotog friends JA, Terence and Sam came up to me and requested for mini-shoots. I was so surprised they recognise me! Haha. Thanks for approaching me guys ^^

I had lots of fun, even though I was constantly trapped inside scary photog walls. I’m still intimidated by a wall of pure flash and camera. Haha.

Guest cosplayers in the event were King x Mon, Misa 2.0, YUI and Saffron! I really wanted their merchandise, but I didn’t want to queue, so I missed out the chance of getting their autographs ):
BUTBUT. I did manage to give King x Mon my coscards!

The lucky Sandra had a lucky day! When King x Mon were escorted out, they crossed paths with us and King suddenly grabbed Sandra’s hand and said that she recognised her from the coscard she gave.

I WAS SO SHOCKED.

King continued to praise Sandra about how awesome she looked in her Imitation Black cosplay (in the coscard) and said that she liked that cosplay loads. WOW. Sandra cannot wash her hands ever again xD

Oh yes. Congratulations for being chosen for Cure Walk, Sandra! I’ll see you from the audience side! ^^

The rest of the event was quite a blur. I was running around and getting chased by photographers, meeting friends, or at the parade. Busy busy event.

Some of my friends only came after I un-cos-ed or was only free then. Haha.

Here is the ever kawaii Suzume! ^^

Must snag a photo with her every time I see her. HEE. I sound like some crazy stalker :X

Cosfest is coming up this Saturday and Sunday too! For those who are going, remember to get a coscard from me if you spot me! I’ll be Luo Tian Yi on Saturday and Black Rock Shooter or Miyu on Sunday!

Konnichiwa Minna-san!

I hope you are having a lovely day ^^

You may have known from the “Done” tab above that I have cosplayed the Romeo & Cinderella Miku. That shoot had an all female crew, because I didn’t think I would feel comfortable with a male crew, especially with the rather awkward poses.

Photographer and Makeup artist: Etterorua Red
Kaito: Tesun

Anyway, this is the original PV of the song

Alternate PVs that I found.

Okay, back to topic. I hope this tutorial will serve as a useful guide for those out there who plan to cosplay the Romeo & Cinderella version of Miku.. I believe this can serve as a guide for similarly clothed characters as well as Romeo & Cinderella version of the other vocaloids, which have different colour schemes.

You will need:

  • Red Sequins
  • Black Lace
  • Dressmaking Pins
  • Nylon Thread
  • Cotton Thread
  • Sharp Sewing Needles
  • Super Glue/Cloth Glue
  • Hot Pink Long Tube Top
  • Hot Pink Underwear
  • Black Elastic Braid
  • Camisole (that you usually wear)
  • Long Ruler

Step 1: Top

Miku is wearing black laced red polka-dotted lingerine.

  • Tube top
  1. Using a ruler, place sequins (as markers) 5cm of each other using 0cm, 5cm, 10cm, 15cm etc… as a guide for row 1.
  2. Move the ruler to be below your markers (as shown in picture)
  3. Using a ruler, mark out dots 5 cm of each other using 2.5cm, 7.5cm, 12.5cm etc… as a guide for row 2.
  4. Repeat Step 1 to Step 3 until you reach the bottom of the tube.
  5. You should get your desired pattern as shown.
  6. Place cardboard inside the tube to prevent glue from seeping through and gluing your tube shut.
  7. Proceed to glue and sew them down. If your sequins are too small, glue a few together to make a larger sequin.
  8. Remember to have sequins for both front and back of your tube.
  9. Decide which side of the lace faces towards the top of the tube and which face of the lace is to be the surface where the glue is applied. (Note that left and right side of lace is slightly different in below picture)
  10. Pin the lace down with dressmaking pins to stabilise position on tube. Cut away extra lace.
  11. Place cardboard inside the tube to prevent glue from seeping through and gluing your tube shut.
  12. Glue the lace down before sewing. It will the lace easier to sew.
  13. Remember to Repeat Step 9 to Step 12 for front, back, top and bottom of tube top.
  • Spaghetti Straps
  1. To determine length of straps, measure the length of camisole straps, add 1cm to that measurement and cut elastic braid accordingly.
  2. If width of elastic braid is too small, sew 2 together using nylon thread.
  3. Secure lace onto elastic braid using dressmaking pins, make sure to leave a 1cm gap.
  4. Glue down lace before sewing lace onto elastic braid.
  5. Determine which side of lace faces the wearer and which side of lace faces away from wearer. (note in above picture that left and right side of lace is slightly different)
  6. To determine position of straps, place camisole inside the tube and note the position of the straps on the tube top using dressmaking pins.
  7. Glue elastic braids down to double confirm their position before sewing.
  8. Remember to make 2 straps, 1 each for your right and left shoulder!

Step 2: Bottom

  1. Following Step 1 to Step 8 from “Tube top”, you should get the desired pattern as shown below.
  2. following Step 9 to Step 13 from “Tube top”, apply lace as desired.

Complete!

You can use leftover lace to make a garter or use it as a prop for your photoshoot, as I did 🙂

Miku wears a white cardigan and a black pleated skirt in some of the fanart, so you may want to include that in your shoot. Also, bring many many apples! I spent half the shoot going through the apples that Tesun bought for the shoot. Haha

みなさんこんにちは!Minna-san Konnichiwa!

Since this blog is new, I would be posting entries that will draw your attention to the older cosplays that I did before starting this blog. Today, I will bring your attention to the Gumi Sandplay Photoshoot I had with JP_Capture and his 2 friends about 2 years ago.

It was a really convenient photoshoot because the crew had a car! However, it was a rather short shoot with few photos as it was getting pretty dark and we didn’t want the shoot to end too late.

That was my third time cosplaying a character from the “From The Miniature Garden Where The Dragon Howls” Series (otherwise known as Sandplay Singing of the Dragon). This time around I was rather happy with my makeup. I could do with more blush, but the eye makeup had significant improvement. The makeup doesn’t really show up nicely in photos though. It was the first time I have successfully added false eyelashes to my eyes! They are very uncooperative when I want to use them! Haha.

Back then, I still needed to improve on posing for shots. I look stiff and too expressionless in this shoot 😦

Here are some of my favourite shots from the shoot. I have uploaded more pictures up on Deviantart and Cure!

For those who are not familiar with the series, this is how the song sounds like, this version includes Kaito, Kagamine Len, and Gackupo Kamui
