So I’ve been pretty quiet lately (both in blogging and cosplay), but I’ve been saving up and spending a lot of time planning a dream vacation: Tokyo! I’m going in a month and am beyond excited.
But for as much planning I’ve been doing, I’m still looking for recommendations! Where to eat, where to shop, where to go, etc. So if you’ve been to Tokyo (or have a place you’ve always wanted to visit there) – let me know! I’m so excited to experience everything I can, so any tips or recommendations are super :)
If you’ve been seeing my posts over the past few weeks, you’ll know this isn’t my first time posting something related to the game Overwatch, though it is my first outfit post!
I picked up both the Nerf This! tee and the bunny tights at Connecticon last month, and I’ve really been loving the combo together. (I did get asked on instagram though, and I’m so sorry but I can’t remember the vendor who sold this :< ) DVa is my favorite character to play (& Lucio!), and she’s so adorable, too. This inspired outfit is a lot of fun to wear, and the bunny tights really pulled it together for me.
Who is your favorite Overwatch character, and what do you think they’d wear if they went “casual”?
Ok, who else has been playing Overwatch? It’s been such an addicting game! I haven’t been playing as much as I’d like but it’s a fun game to play together with friends.
In honor of one of the most adorable characters to play, here’s a Mei-themed cocktail: FREEZE!
You will need (for 1 cocktail):
- 8 blueberries
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- 2 tsp sugar
- 8 mint leaves
- 2 oz white rum
- 1 cup ice
- 1 oz club soda
- Stick 2 glasses in the freezer beforehand to get them frosty
- Muddle together the mint, sugar, and half the blueberries in a shaker
- Add in the lime juice and rum, and shake
- Pour into glasses and top with club soda
- Drop in the other half of the blueberries and a mint sprig for garnish
I’m very excited to share one of my newest costumes, the “marine” version of Nozomi from Love Live! This was completed over the course of three months for Connecticon 2016.
Click under the cut for a full walkthrough (with photos!) on how I made this costume:
Happy Friday! I’ll be the first to admit, I have been neglecting blogging these past few months in favor of cosplay. Oops?
I’m taking some time off sewing to clean up, clear my head, and save some money ∗ ◕ ں ◕ ∗. I also really do want to get back into blogging and drawing – I just got an iPad so I’ve been doodling like crazy. So hopefully soon I should get back into blogging regularly!
Ana – Overwatch: I know some of you play Overwatch, so how excited are you for Ana? She’s the mother of Pharah, and is basically a healing, sniping strong lady. I’ve been playing a lot of D.Va and Lucio, but can’t wait to try Ana!
Cotton candy martini from Style Me Pretty – um, yum? I’m all about pretty drinks, and double points if you can include cotton candy in there. I can’t remember the last time I actually bought cotton candy but I really want to try this recipe out.
This retro gaming illustration by Jelo Zapanza is so much fun – I’m actually going to a 90’s themed party tonight, so hopefully I’ll get to play some SEGA genesis!
What are you up to this weekend?
