I'd been born in the wrong century and felt cheated posted at 3:54 PM
The blue fairy of the woods. Here you have some pictures of my selfmade wings. They are inspired by the tutorial Emilie Autumn ones made. It took a while to find the wire I needed. A lot of money was wasted on finding it, and finally I found a strong one that was still 'easy' to bend. It was originally wire for gardens and stuff, but hey, it worked and it's more payable than the wire you buy in art shops. Why did I need strong wire, well, the nylon socks were pulling the wires out of shape, and of course that wasn't what I wanted. So now, they are holding the shape I want.

but my life was never ordinary.
I had simply failed to notice how extraordinary it was.”
~ Ransom Riggs
After that I painted them white with gesso and colored them with acrylic. You can color them right away with acrylic as well, but the socks do absorb a lot of paint. After painting the wings and taping them together I added silk ribbons and flowers, and tadaaa: they were ready. These pictures were taken on abunai by Cathy and I'm so happy with how they turned out. ^_^

Yes, I think I will quote many Lord of the Ring quotes in the future since I'm completely smitten with the trilogy. I'm reading the books and watching the movies again after watching all the Hobbit Movies. The only thing that bothered me a little was the fact that they actually ended with the hobbit movies. I honestly believe it would have been far more magical if they started with them. And yes, you can watch them in the correct order, but it's still not the same.
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
~ J.R.R Tolkien
"The last goodbye" sung by Billy Boyd is such a beautiful song and it's somehow so sad that the story ends, but I guess all stories come to an end and I can't deny that the series end with a touching farewell. Have you guys ever been obsessed about something, books, movies, artists, something you can hardly say farewell to?

Elf Fantasy Fair 2015 posted at 1:54 PM

Ever wondered what a fairytale would look like in real live? Well, I think I found my fairytale world in Elf Fantasy Fair, Like Emma Swan from "Once Upon a Time" did find Storybrook, . A magical world with a medieval touch. I was invited by Cathy (from Chishio Cosplay) who was dresses as Grell from Kuroshitsuji. I decided to go as Red Riding Hood. Romy (from Aura Sphere Cosplay) could come as well so we talked and had a lot of fun.

The whole setting of this event is just overwhelming and I don't know if I can describe it any different then magical. You are surround by characters from your favorite movies, series,... I adore the "Lord of the Rings" characters! Besides that I also met some awesome cosplayers from "Once Upon a Time" (Regina and the Wicked witch.) I even got a picture with them, which made me very happy and me as Red Riding Hood didn't really fall out of place. The theme "Game of Thrones" probably made this event even better (though I'm sad that I missed the 'Lord of the Rings' theme though. But there were so many characters from this series and also music and of course a special stand with dragon eggs!!! I saw several amazing persons dressed as John Snow too. Romy kindly treated me with lunch, and there was so much to choose from and it tasted delicious. We took pictures, bought fantasy books, two rings and I as well bought a elegant spoon with a beautiful gem as souvenir.
Though the weather wasn't perfect, it still was an unique experience. I almost forget to tell you about what truly made my day. I desperately wanted to see/meet Jack Sparrow and I was just telling Romy about it and there he was. He or perhaps she, was such a wonderful cosplayer! Well, I'm definitely going back next year. Thank you Romy and Cathy for the amazing day and meet you there next year. ^__^
