Ace Attorney Photoshoot!

I couldn't find time to record down most of the stuff I did these past 2 years due to my inactivity on my blog, mostly contributed by the lack of excitement studying in India, and generally having less free time to myself. (even with free time, all I wanted to do was slack around and sleep)

I was trying to type out my "2013 in a Nutshell" post. And while coming across my Ace Attorney photoshoot from back in March, I realized there were a lot of feels and photos and I guess I'll just have to make a separate blogpost to mark that event down. xD

This was a photoshoot that was planned for 2012, and was supposed to be shot in December after Comic Fiesta. Since my group members weren't ready, we had to postpone it till March when I was back from India again. Unfortunately, we had to miss Anthea/Trucy, because she had to go back to Kedah. ;w;

Prior to the photoshoot, I got my hands dirty again to make the accessories for our members.

Apollo's bracelet (which looks pretty good but I had no idea how to put it on. so we ended up UHU gluing them together on Rayhan's wrist for the photoshoot, lol)
and the attorney badges! (not to scale)

Magatamas and the beaded necklace!

Animax Carnival 2013

Foreword: So, I had this completed post sitting in my drafts for about 9 months now! It's super late and random and unrelated but... since I've already typed it out, it's a waste not to post it, so here ya go!

Was supposed to go to sleep when the current/internet died, but after I got ready to sleep, internet/current returned. And so now I'm downloading stuff, watching Bloody Monday 2 and typing this blogpost to kill time!

Here's a post on what I've been up to during my 1 month holidays back in Malaysia! From 14 March - 15 April.

Animax Carnival (15 - 16 March 2013)

Day 1

If you know me, I'd never give up a chance to cosplay. C: I didn't have any new costume (or didn't have the time to complete any), so I just took whatever that looks good and could stand on its own. (since most of my characters are quite obscure...)

The second Animax Carnival, in Sunway Pyramid! Wee picked me up to the event early in the morning.

I met Elaine as Mio!
And also Nick in a Storm Trooper mask, got shocked for a moment there when he unmasked himself

The event area before the large crowd

 It was a small event in the Blue Atrium, but the area was PACKED! The queue was so long, I didn't even bother going into the main event area. Just wandered around the outer circle to take pictures and say hi to people. Nothing much interesting about the event, other than LISA who came and sang 2 songs, but the speakers and open air area killed the performance. Kinda expected this from a commercial event.

We met up with the other TAS people! (I can't recall who exactly, hurhur)

Suzie and Siaw Xie as Himeji and Hideyoshi from Baka Test!
I was supposed to join the group, but had delays for my costume... =(

The rest of TAS went shopping around the mall since the event was kinda boring. I continued to roam around and say hi to the other cosplayers. As usual, I'm still too shy. ^^" Even cosplayers I know already, I can't approach because they always seem busy and I'm afraid they wouldn't recognize me.

I met Grell! Who was excited to see me (although he sliced me with a chainsaw before...)

And I finally found my danna-sama, Alois and the demon butler Claude!

Surprisingly, Claude turned out to be Elle, who I met on the CF forum, who I was supposed to cosplay  Fruits Basket with, who was also a friend of my dad's colleague's daughter! Tiny world.

Wani! :3

Ash! A really friendly guy and committed cosplayer. I managed to chat with him prior to the event, although we had first met years ago in C2AGE 2010. Can't believe he remembers me!

I ended up not taking too much pictures, since it was a hassle taking my camera out.

A funny story from Day 1, though. I kept bumping into this guy in a Scream mask. He wouldn't say anything to me, but he'd sign with his hands to "communicate" with me and I'd respond back in words. At the end he came to me to tell me that he was leaving. After saying bye, he took of his mask, bowed and left, without a word. I didn't get a name, or hear him talk, I only had a glimpse of his face and he was kinda cute. :P

Day 2


This, folks, is how a cosplayer looks like, prepping up for the day. Concealed eyebrows, hair in wig cap, pyjamas, and my forehead in all its glory! Here, you can see my new lenses clearly! Luxury Babe 3 Blue. I opened them on day 1 for Hannah, too.

Sice from Final Fantasy Type-0

Whipped out my scythe to grab attention, wahaha. And I finally got to wear my new heeled boots from Taobao! They look really good, although it hurts really bad, haha. I've spent some time to style my wig too. But since I'm not good at it, it's only made a bit of difference, haha. At least I've got some spikes poking out of my head instead of just my clip-on ponytail.

I think this picture captures my styled hair best

More pretty pictures!

Met up with TAS again!

And Sunny was there too!

Rebecca and Jing came to visit too! :3

With Xan! We've only found out 1-2 years ago that we were both from the same primary school, ahah. |D

My legs were hurting really badly since it's been two long days wearing closed-toed high heels. My toes were numb even after 2 days. And until know, my big toes are still blue-black. Ahhh, the things we do for cosplay.

Unfortunately, this was the only cosplay event I could attend since there was nothing else lined up. I cosplayed and helped out at Taylor's Lakeside's recruitment drive though! But that's a tale for another day...

Happy 2014!

Happy New Year peeps! I had a good new year's celebration in KL yesterday, in a suite room in Mandarin Oriental overlooking KLCC, with the best view of the fireworks from 20 stories high, with my family and my brother's friends!

2013 was pretty normal to me, in comparison to its predecessors, hehe. 2011 was new college year, 2012 was new uni + India year, but 2013, I had already adapted myself to mostly everything (and the uneventful life in India :X).

It has its highlights though!

I started dancing a lot, just normal copy-choreography-from-Youtube/Kpop dancing. I choreographed a cheer, flash mob and class dance that I was really proud of. Thanks to that, dancing has become my exercise and I think I've been able to shape up a little, haha.

I passed BDS I and I'm in my second year now! Loving operative dentistry, but not prosthodontics please, ughhh. The theory subjects are no doubt tough and dry, but the biggest motivation to complete second year successfully is so that I can move on to Penang in April! :D

This is the first year I didn't participate in Comic Fiesta's Group Cosplay (since 2008), and first time I won't be appearing on a magazine article. |D I did my first crossplay though! And I had to bind my chest twice for 2 days. Oh, and I had a trip to Langkawi just for a Chrono Cross photoshoot, that was a blast. (YOLO) It was somewhat of a small break from cosplay, these 2 years, but hopefully 2014 will be different.

I got a Nintendo 3DS from my dear TAS. Thank you guys so much! Thanks to that, I've also bought my first game, Pokemon X. Huhu...

I've also started picking up Kpop (EHMERGAWD?), thanks to dancing. I was a half-closeted BEAST fan, and I've just bought my first music record ever. Hard to Love, How to Love! Lots of time and obsession was poured into this fandom, haha. B2UTY foreverest!

Hoping that 2014 will be a more exciting and productive year! I hope to build my character more, to learn more about life, and to find more goals and objectives in life. Really hoping to be able to make more difference when I get back from India.

Wishing you all the best for 2014 everybody!
