Hi! I checked your blog but couldn't find…

Hi! I checked your blog but couldn't find a track of "Zelda's Awakening" from BoTW anywhere! Is it possible to add this? :3

I haven’t uploaded this track (or any of the memories) because unfortunately, to my knowledge, the music is tied to sound effects going on in the scene.  So the tracks don’t have any dialogue, but you can hear the guardians running around and falling so it doesn’t make for nice audio-only track.

If you would like to listen to it, you can listen here

It is a very nice song that plays though, I wish they had just the music available 

Hello! I was wondering if you had any favorite…

Hello! I was wondering if you had any favorite Kid Icarus characters?

Hi there!  That’s a tough question because I love all the characters…

I guess I would have to say my favorite is Palutena though, and I really like Hades as a villain 🙂

what are your favorite video games?

what are your favorite video games?

This is a tough question…I’ve played so many games and I like so many! But I will list out the ones I consider to be my favorites.  Most of them are at the top because of the impact they had on me and my love for video games!

1. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

2. Fire Emblem: Awakening.

3. Kid Icarus: Uprising

4. Pokemon: Silver

5. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Most of these games are among my favorite because they introduced me to series that I love so much today (TP, FE:A, and Silver), and I’ve replayed them too many times to count.  Uprising is just a whole lot of fun from the characters to the music to the gameplay (I never experienced those wrist pains).  Skyrim is on this list because it’s the first video game I really got into that wasn’t Nintendo, which encouraged me to expand my video game interests.  I don’t necessarily think these are the best games in existence, but they’re my personal favorites 🙂

Let me know what your favorites are!

What's your fav Skyward Sword OST?

Hmm…my favorite is probably Fi’s Theme/Lament, but I also like the Lanayru Desert theme a lot

Skyward Sword’s version of Zelda’s Lullaby is also very pretty 🙂

Time to tip the scales!

Here are some of my favorite shots from Otakon for my Grandmaster Robin.  This costume might be my favorite since Palutena–I’m extremely proud with how it turned out.  It’s also suprisingly comfy to wear…and it has pockets! 🙂

I debuted my most recent cosplay project at Otakon today—Grandmaster Robin! It was hours upon hours of work, but I’m extremely proud of how it turned out. It’s probably one of my favorites so far 😊

It was great meeting some of you in person!

Wow! Really nice job on the cosplays they all …

Wow! Really nice job on the cosplays they all look so beautiful. Sorry if you've already answered this before but how to you make the armour?

Thank you so much! 

I either use craft foam or black worbla as material for the armor–usually I use a combo. They’re both thermoplastics, so they become malleable when hot.  Worbla is very rigid when cool and very flexible when it’s heated, so it’s great for armor pieces or accessories you don’t want bending while wearing or traveling.  It’s also helpful because it sticks to itself when you heat it, so you don’t need glue on details. Craft foam is never rigid (so after wearing it a lot or dropping it, it might lose its shape), but will generally hold the shape you mold it into after it cools.  It’s also very cheap (I’m talking 49 cents per sheet), while worbla is pretty expensive.

I first draft a pattern of the armor by wrapping myself in saran wrap and tape, then draw out how I want that piece to look.  Then I transfer that rough sketch onto paper and refine it to make a more even template, then transfer that template onto craft foam.  I generally sandwich the craft foam between two worbla pieces that are larger than the craft foam to create a nice and more stable piece of armor 🙂 This is called the sandwich method, there are lots of tutorials about it on google!

That’s kind of the basics of what I do.  Let me know if you have any other questions or if you want some links to some great tutorials!

The Grandmaster of Ylisse is headed to Otakon!…

The Grandmaster of Ylisse is headed to Otakon!  My promoted Robin cosplay is all ready to go, and I couldn’t be more hype to cosplay her now that her husband is joining the Smash roster 🙂 

I’m so proud of how this costume turned out, I made everything except for the fire prop, which was bought from GiveWaveStudios, and I got help from my lovely aunt for sewing!

I’ll be wearing her on Saturday, but I’ll be at the con tomorrow too wearing Belle (she is much easier to purchase items in!). 

If you want to meet up, let me know! I’d love to get to know you in person 😀
