Fanime 2014


Ah, it always goes by so fast. This year was like any other at Fanime, and it seemed pretty consistent with my past years. I did appreciate seeing the new addition to the convention center, complete with the cool structure out front called "Idea Tree". I'll kinda miss the fountains, but I understand why the new design makes sense. There's way more room for people to mingle and it provides a bit of shade too.

I was also fortunate enough to run into a friend of mine, Charles Eddie Wilson, from deviantART. He was so kind, and he let me take his photo because he made a great Ash Ketchum (featured below). As always, the cosplay was so much fun. It was nice to finally have proper equipment to do these people justice. So without further ado, here are some of the costumes that I enjoyed this year:

Travis Touchdown | Spider-Man & Wonder Woman | Beatrix
(If this is you, let me know and I'll link to your website)

Terra Branford | LEGO Batman | Balrog
(If this is you, let me know and I'll link to your website)

Tomoyo Daidouji & Cardcaptor Sakura | Princess Garnet | Tiz Arrior & Agn├Ęs Oblige
(If this is you, let me know and I'll link to your website)

Captain Jack Sparrow | Ash Ketchum | Popstar Ahri & Ezreal
(If this is you, let me know and I'll link to your website)

Jak & Keira Hagai | Doctor Who | Princess Aurora & Alice
(If this is you, let me know and I'll link to your website)

See you there next year.

Look of the Month :: Spring 2014 :: May

For the last spring look this year I'm going to be doing a pale mauve eye. Not only is this incredibly trendy this season, but it matches my outfits for Fanime so I'm going to be wearing it out for both days. It's super easy to do, and really quick to apply. This makeup is also great for a low maintenance, no fuss look that will stay put all day long without any touch ups. Which is ideal, because then more fun can be had!

The current look is:
M A Y  2 0 1 4


Color trends for this month:
Light mauve, forest green, powder blue, white, and silver

Current motivation for the look:
 Fanime, soft pastel colors, and rays of sun behind the clouds
