13. Your cosplay specialty (ie. something that seems to apply to a large amount of your cosplays, it could be a specific series, or a common feature in their appearance, such as glasses)
Yep. I guess glasses would be a thing? :D
Tbh I love glasses :D
Ever since I was little I wanted to wear glasses, but my eyes aren’t bad enough (yet), so cosplay has to do.
I love glasses characters. If an anime/manga has a glasses character there’s a 99,9% chance I’ll like him and want to cosplay as them :D
As for a specific series, I’ve done quite a lot of Vocaloid cosplays lately and am planning of doing even more. So I guess that also counts~

30 Day Cosplay Challenge: Day 11
11. Something cosplay-related that you will never do (eg. crossplay, cosplay from a certain series)
Time to resume this I think. I’m honest I completely forgot about this. Older posts here.
Cosplays that show too much skin, mostly around the legs-thighs-belly-area.
But the reason isn’t so much that I don’t want to do them because I have something against revealing outfits but because with my body figure, I can’t wear them. I know there’s the whole society is projecting a fake image of what people should wear and not and you should wear whatever you like but still people would judge me for it and more important I wouldn’t feel comfortable with my current body. Also I’m very self-conscious so this wouldn’t end well.
I’m already half freaking out because my next costume is Tokiya Ichinose in the Maji Love 2000% Stage Outfit and it’s revealing half of my back and I think of 1000 methods to not let it look bad but this cosplay is really important to me so it’s an exception to this rule and yeah. But other than that, I don’t think I’ll do any revealing outfits in the future.
Eren Jäger [Shingeki no Kyojin] Make up Test
Just a random test to see if I could pull him off at all.
I may or may not cosplay him next year, who knows.
I need to work on the eyebrows a bit more (make them a bit thicker and narrower) but other than that I’m kind of satisfied how this turned out.
Also, I’ve been using this tutorial as basis if anyones wondering (just altered it so it works with my eye shape)
Maybe if I am cosplaying him for real, I’ll do a bit less eyeliner and work a bit more careful, this was done rather quickly.
Also I’m more than happy that using my old Roderich wig for him worked out just as planned :D
Cosplayer: Kuroshii as Kamu Gakupo 【Ryu No Naku Hakoniwa Yori】
Photos and Edit: Cowslip
Hey guys, long time no seen!
I was a bit stressed before Connichi, which took place last weekend and what to say, it was awesome!
And even though I slacked a lot before the con, I managed to finish my cosplay in time!
Sandplay was a great cosplay dream of mine and I am so happy I was finally able to make it!
It was so much fun wearing it, even if the shoes killed me because they were one size too small xD
But my group was awesome and I’m looking forward to wear it again :D
10. The dream cosplay that will never happen
Kaito - Setsugetsuka - Vocaloid
I love Vocaloid ever since I discovered them and since then I’m a Vana ‘N Ice fan. Setsugetsuka was my favorite song along with Imitation Black and at that time, Kaito was my absolute fav Vocaloid character (my obsession with Gakupo came much much later)
And since I love Setsugetsuka so much, I really really want to cosplay it and I really really want to do Kaito, but there’s just one little problem:
It’s a costume with a bare midriff.
And I am not a person to wear these kind of costumes.
Btw. bared midriffs is my most frequent reason to not do a cosplay.
The list of costumes I would have made if I could wear them would be nearly endless, Marik from Yu-Gi-Oh, Viola from Eternal Sonata, misc. female and male armors from different MMORPGs and Judal from Magi are only a few examples.
I will do Setusgetsuka in the future.
Just that I will do Gakupo instead of Kaito.
His shirt is just as short as Kaitos, but he wears a haori-like jacket over it so you barely see it.
Still, I’ll be forever sad that I can’t do Kaito.
9. The dream cosplay that might just happen
Yuujirou | Masquerain - Gijinka Design by Cowslip - Pokémon
Yuujirou. Ah, where should I begin?
Marnie did this design of Masquerain for a big Pokémon Gijinka RP where she was playing him and I played his best friend Subaru/Mismagius.
Soon the RP died and so only the two of us continued the story of them in a privat RP and the longer we played, the more I fell in love with our characters. And Yuujirous story simply broke my heart. He’s such a precious character to me which I helped building and I love his design to bits and pieces.
It’s been over three years Marnie released this design and ever since I wanted to cosplay it with her as my Subaru. I really like the complexity of the kimono and of course the long hair (I just have a thing for long haired characters, I can’t help it)
So yeah, maybe one day I’ll finally be able to do him ♥
8. Your cosplay plans for the rest of the year (if you have no more for this year, then do next year!)

30 Day Cosplay Challenge: Day 7
7. The character you have cosplayed that is most similar to you (if none that you have cosplayed, then one that you will cosplay)
Hm. I don’t really know, I rarely cosplay characters that are similar to me because one of the funs in cosplay for me is to portrait a character that’s totally different from myself, because I consider myself rather boring and hard to handle.
Sure, the most characters I cosplay or want to cosplay are somewhat similar to me in some way, but there’s really nobody where I’d say “Yes, that’s him/her, they are exactly like me!”
But if I had to pick, it be probably Gareki from Karneval or Tokiya Ichinose from Uta no Prince-sama, both characters I still want to cosplay. I’m a lot like them, mostly very calm and quiet, sometimes even cold, but caring for the ones they love.
30 Day Cosplay Challenge: Day 6
6. Your favourite cosplay (that you have done)
Misaki | Dustox Gijinka, Design and Photos by Cowslip
Well. This question is really hard to answer since in the last years I did many cosplays that I love and had fun making and wearing. But in the end, Dustox won. One because it’s one of the few costumes where I have almost nothing to complain about and two because it really is comfortable to wear (except for the eyepatch xD)
Another reason is probably because it is the first time I cosplayed an own character of some sort. Yeah, it’s a Pokémon Gijinka, but still, he’s a part of the RP Marnie and I play and he really grew on me ♥ And last but not least, he looks like a bit like a Visual Kei artist and well, I’ve always been a fan of that ♥♥♥ So it’s like combining two of my passions, Pokémon AND Visual Kei. We even made up another personality for him where he is the bassist of a VK band. And even if all those reasons didn’t exist, THE HELL JUST LOOK AT THE PSYCHEDELIC COLORS, YOU GOTTA LOVE THEM!
Anyway, never ask about the story how he lost his eye. Believe me, you don’t want to hear it.
