Ok so my next idea is to be Mey Rin and use the costume that made last year again, I'm thinking that i will do that for the convention Nomcom, but not for Eirtakon. I think i saw a bit of myself in Mey Rin, she is so clumsy and funny. I'm probably going to fix up the costume because i used buttons instead of a zip the first time and they just kept opening up with all the Gangnam Style dancing I was doing :P I'm also going to get guns and a wig for this cosplay. I think it would add a bit to it  and also I don't wan to dye my hair pink again :P but anyway i will probably cosplay as her at one point this year because it was fun :)

you might be able to see me doing gangnam style on the stage at eirtakon, its like where's niamh :P

My second Idea is to be Grell Sutcliff from Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler). He is my favourite character from Kuroshitsuji, Grell is just so camp and hilarious, you couldn't not like him :D One of the main reasons I wouldn't be up for making this costume would be that it is a VERY tailored look, and if you are making costume at home its better to have a costume that you can have a bit of artistic licence with, but that's just me and I'm a perfectionist so that why I wouldn't make it  :P Also another reason i would like to cosplay Grell is because the fans of Grell are great!! and anyone who watches Kuroshitsuji MUST like Grell, it a rule I just made :D

Yay !!!! Idea number 1 !!! ok so my first idea is to be Miku, from her clover club video. I love the song and I love the outfit she wears!! I got this idea from my friend, she knows her 
J-Pop well so I asked her to help me with ideas. my only worry about this costume would be finding a little doggy teddy to put on my head. it would also mean buying another wig. although it would be a short wig which would be much cheaper so guess the pros weigh out the cons. I'm also a little worried about the length of the skirt, but only a little :P this seems like a pretty solid idea and it seems like it would be super fun to make!! and not too much of a time crunch as with my previous costume. I have included a little picture to show you what the outfit looks like and if your bothered I have included a link to the youtube video if wanna take a look :)

I will be making a new costume soon, and I'm not sure of which character I want to go as, my following posts will be including all the thought processes and rules I abide by like: I will never go as a character from an anime or manga that I have not read or seen. this is because I usually go as one of my favourite characters. if i meet someone who is cosplaying as a character from the same anime as me i want to be able to recognise and appreciate their costume and know about their character too, what if someone says "whats your favourite episode of __________ ?" and your just like ". . . . . . " then the person might be all like "BLAJJSJJASJHAHHHHH, HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW WHICH IS YOUR FAVE EPISODE, MINE IS THE CURRY EPISODE!!/??>/" and then you might have a very angry cosplayer on your hands, and you do not want THAT. so all in all, best to play it safe and go for one you know :)

 
    THIS PAGE INCLUDES MY THOUGHT PROCESSES AND IDEAS WHEN THINKING ABOUT HOW TO MAKE COSTUMES AND WHERE TO FIND THEM, IT WILL INCLUDE LOADS OF PICTURES AND BRAINSTORMS ..
