Dokomi and AniMuc were great! Heart The vibe on the German conventions is unique compared to ours (in the good sense of course!). Some costumes and skits were mind blowing. I was deeply honoured to be a judge twice. :batman: Then at Animecon I was soo proud of the German C4 girls which got the Fabricator Dijin award for funniest skit!! The German EuroCosplay finalist got my high hopes as well.

During Animecon I participated in a panel "cosplay over 30 years" and the competition on Sunday. Both went great. It was also very touching to receive compliments by many talented cosplayers of my cosplay and/or skit on Sunday. :heart: Those audience and fellow cosplayers feedback are more important to me than winning a title or price.

Aside cosplay, my private life is going well. We finally booked our airplane tickets for Japan!!! OMG, I could not be happier! :D Our vacation week in September is still to be decided.
Health is also going better compared to begin this year which means back to sports in the near future.
Much to look forward to in general!! Like soon it is time for Versailles, Disneyland, 1 day Japan Expo and in August a Metalday at Lokerse Feesten.

We are currently thinking of our abroad trip, where to go on vacation. There are soo many choices outside Europe! By coincidence I won Sunday tickets for Brussels Comic Con, a place I quickly will visit as well.

It seems like many interesting and exciting things are going to take place in 2017. <3 Or at least I sincerely hope soo, considering our bad start in 2017.

Tomorrow it will be time to see Apocalyptica in concert. Up next in March something totally different: Bruno Mars. Expect more photos soon :)

Epic Con was great thanks to the usual German atmosphere which I like soo much, making new friends, seeing again older ones, 1rst time being judged by Yaya-han and Leon (who liked my work <3)
The convention itself was a little tiny but the location and building have big potential.

First of all, thank you all for you support during the years!!!:heart:
In order to celebrate it and my ten years of cosplay, there will be a x-mas give-away on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/mysteriousmae….
(because it is great giving presents during the holidays right?)

It is also getting better, by ordering 1 or more prints from my store mysteriousmaemi.storenvy.com/ you will receive a little x-mas gift!
By buying (a) print(s), you will support my work and know that shipping is worldwide.

As for the Eurocosplay championship, I had a wonderful time thanks to my precious lady friends Iloon-Creations and artflower <3 but also getting to know (better) some other qualifiers. My hope was to get a judges award, which was achieved so I could not have been happier/grateful for all!!
The top 3 girls were honestly well deserved, still getting goosebumps when thinking of the German performance. :heart:
You will definitely see Cruella back, a photoshoot is planned next year and possibly a performance as well. Unfortunately the transport back to my home country left a few marks, so some parts need to be repaired but nothing bad. :batman:

Some may already notice, my facebook page is more active compared to DA. Hence the reason why it is best to follow me there if you want the latest news. The upcoming 2017 events calender came recently online on FB, it will arrive here as well but not immediately. For now you can enjoy my advent calender posts where upcoming cosplays are announced.

This month brings my Big Eurocosplay project in the spotlights. Looking seriously forward to it! :D
Just practised again my skit and currently being at 93,5%.

FACTS Belgium convention will be skipped due to practical reasons: otherwise 3 busy weekends and no interesting famous actors.
During Facts, it is actually my 10 cosplay years celebration, there will be another give-away done soon on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/mysteriousmae…

As per your requests, I also opened a storenvy purely for prints: mysteriousmaemi.storenvy.com/
Hopefully this platform is more your taste. ;)

To end, my Cosplay schedule:

- MCM London (GB) ~ 28th-30th October => Eurocosplay finals
- MCM Belgium (BE) ~ 05th-6th November
- Midwinter Fair (NL) ? ? ~ 10th-11th December - LARP

Much happened since July:

1) Sailor Lethe is still up for sale, 7 other costumes have already been sold. Please PM me if you are interested.
Sailor Lethe from Sailor Moon by MysteriousMaemi   Sailor Lethe 4 by MysteriousMaemi

2) Belgium will have their first WCS selection in 2017. I got a double sided feeling: on the one hand excited and grateful, on the other hand what will this new competition bring along? But I like the Animecon judging style: having international non-european judges so hopefully they can bring it to us too!

3) Almost 1k followers on Facebook and here 38k! Honestly your support is is boosting me enormously! I am thinking of doing a give-away on my Facebook page when both milestones are reached. <3  So keep an eye out for that.
It would be great to arrange a give-away just before the MCM Eurocosplay finals. :D

4) Currently my EC finals project is at 86% according to my cosplanner app. Hopefully reaching 90% by end of this month. This project is dear to me: something old since 2011-2012 that made it to my "all time, ultimate, bigger project" wishlist like Warhammer, Artemis and Bizenghast.
It is in my comfort zone and yet not completely. New techniques are used to broaden my knowledge/experience and the skit is partly a challenge which motivates too. It is just a little sad that they changed the stage settings, otherwise the impact would have been bigger.
My foreseen private life activities schedule got changed based on this project decision. Time management is important. Therefore all will depend of my private life IF I will attend FACTS. After my yearly busy periods September and October, we will go on a well deserved holiday for a couple of days in November. ;) Definitely expect photos from that beautiful abroad location!

My current schedule:
- Connichi, Kassel (DE) ~ 16th-18th September

Last Sunday I did a 25km walk and reached the finish. Aside of cosplay and house stuff, this was planned (and not cancelled). It was great to do something else for one day.

Last weekend we got the Made in Asia convention and it was great: I met 2 ouat cosplayers, saw friends back and made some new. The convention was more interesting as well: cosplay selling stand and such. And somehow it got even better: I got selected again for the Eurocosplay!
Looking forward being again in London: seeing some friends back and making new. :)

I was honestly very happy with the feedback I got from the judges. :heart:
To all who were there: thanks for your support but also you all online out there!! :) (Smile)
It will be an interesting cosplay year for sure! ;-)

Yes, I am back in action! :)
After busy months of various activities, DA will be updated again.

Tim Burton's Danny Elfman music show in Paris was just amazing! That amazing that I got a ticket for the Brussels show as well.
Halloween Disneyland Resort Paris was nice, but I preferred the Frozen Summer edition.

Photos about the shows, visits and new cosplays will be put online as well. :)
I sincerly hope to have descent photos of our Clamp group we had at MCM London. :heart:

For next year our trip to Japan will be cancelled but it leaves opportunities: other countries and maybe more abroad cosplay conventions can be explored. :)

Talk to you later! xxx

What's up?

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 19, 2015, 5:05 AM


Life wise, our attic works are almost finished. I passed my 2nd year Polish evening school (90%). Unfortunately due to works my right thumb is injured, a brace support is needed for more than 1 month, thus no or barely progress on new cosplays. :(  Playing with my PS4 is also out of the question at the moment! It itches to do one of those things but my healing period is serious. Currently I am not certain to wear any cosplay at Connichi and F.A.C.T.S. :( Time will tell. But I am still keeping a positive mind here, rest asured. :)

The Jean-Paul Gauthier expo visit was awesome. :batman: It was really beautiful, inspiring and I learned some more. Heart  Tomorrow it is Pukkelpop-time (a music festival) So stay tuned for more photos. :)

In the meantime my photo backlog is slowly being processed. Expect some photos from Rock Werchter and Jean-Paul Gauthier exhibition. :)

The upcoming calendar:

Cosplay
