It has been a while since I attended a cosplay meet and I’d had a Highschool of the Dead cosplay for months that I hadn’t had the chance to wear! On the 25th of January 2014 was Botanicon. With a bit of last minute destroying of a black skirt and cutting a fringe into an old wig, I was good to go. Now me and Ethan both have HOTD cosplays! It was more of a casual picnic meet than a photoshoot and despite taking my camera I didn’t really get any decent shots. It was also quite sunny and I got sunburt through the lace socks, which left a weird pattern on my leg. It’s still there now a month later!

On the 13th of January of 2013, I attended the 13th edition of the MelCosPho meet ups. It was in the Treasury Gardens, Melbourne. The weather was overcast and a little chilly for summer but the clouds made for nice photography lighting.

I went at Ayumu Aikawa (magiclad version) from Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? (Is This A Zombie?). My boyfriend Ethan went as Takashi from Highschool Of The Dead.


So I was a zombie and Ethan was a character that kills zombies, I thought that was funny and asked Neil to take this shot for us!

Ok now for the serious shots!

I didn’t take a whole lot of photos myself but I’m trying to aim for quality over quantity these days.  I was busy enjoying time with friends, posing for photos or assisting other photographers with their photos.

My cosplay was mostly purchased but I made the hat and painted up the chainsaw from a kids toy. The shoes are from Bodyline. I also was Ayumu to a New Years Eve party the week before, which had an “End of Days / Zombie Apolocalypse” theme, so I got good use out of it! It is most hilarious to tell people that you are cosplaying a boy while wearing a pretty pink dress!
