I'm Yuka, I'm 22 and I live in the UK! I'm a cosplayer, and this year I have the honor of being part of Team UK for World Cosplay Summit 2013! Last year I was also part of the 2012 UK Team for European Cosplay Gathering. I might post some progress pictures here, but most of it will be over on facebook, so pop over there if you're interested in seeing more!

I mostly post about cosplay (surprise), video games, movies and music that I like, and about funny conversations I have or things that happen to me. Things that I often post about include: Final Fantasy, League of Legends, Pokemon, Harry Potter, Sailor Moon, Firefly and Scott Pilgrim.

I like receiving asks so feel free to message me! I'm also happy to answer any cosplay-related questions, so if you want any help, critique or tutorials give me a shout. But please check the FAQ in case I've answered your question already! :D

2012 in Cosplay - Part One! (Part two here!)

Vanille - Final Fantasy XIII (Sazh & Photographer)
I wore this at the beginning of the year with Leolarua to enter the European Cosplay Gathering UK preliminaries at Hyper Japan- and we won! This sparked a crazy cosplay making adventure that would last the next half of the year :O This photo is from a private shoot I did in June with my Final Fantasy XIII group- we got rained out but we still managed to get a few nice photos!

Rose Lalonde - Homestuck (Jade, John, Dave & Photographer)
I swore to myself at the beginning of the year that I would “stick to my cosplay plans and not let Homestuck take over”- it seemed that Rose was the snowball that started the avalanche :P

Karkat Vantas - Homestuck (Nepeta
For our Hivebent shoot in March!

Nobuo Terashima - NANA (Photographer)
A fix-up and rewear of an old costume I made back in 2006.

Simon - Gurren Lagann (Kamina & Photographer)
I’ve had this costume sitting half-finished for about three years so I finally finished it this year! Carlo makes such a great Kamina omfg

The Handmaid - Homestuck
I made this for KitaCon but my fabric didn’t turn up on time- then brought it with me to both May Expo and October Expo and couldn’t wear it for various reasons! I’m hoping to do a photoshoot of her in the new year though :D

Roxy Lalonde - Homestuck
Can you…

Karkat Vantas (God Tier) - Homestuck (Photographer)

Just a small photoshoot I did with my awesome flatmate Blasteh at London May Expo last month. I’ve been so busy preparing for ECG that I’ve not had any time to put up any of the photos I took with my friends, and there’s so many nice ones I really want to share them on my blog ;-; I just have no time to sort through them right now! SOON though…. soon.

Finally got around to doing my Roxy make-up test!

I’m really upset with the wig actually, I ordered it not realising that it was a skin-top with a centre parting. So it was impossible to style the fringe the way I wanted to!! D: So I think I’m going to order a new wig, I love Roxy so much that I want to do her justice. So I’m sorry my wig looks so poop in these photos!!!

Make-up notes… I completely forgot to use eyeliner on my waterline and to put eyeshadow in the corner of my eye and I was too lazy to put false eyelashes on. I’ll do that when I get my new wig I think. This is why I shouldn’t start doing make-up tests after midnight lol! Also I seem to be having a problem with my eyeshadow just not showing up in photos… It looked really pink in person but you can barely see it in these shots! Not sure what to do about that haha
