Spring has pretty much arrived and you can see crocuses and snowdrops popping out everywhere! Last weekend the Japan Impact convention took place in Lausanne. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend it this year. I totally forgot that it takes place that early in February! The Polymanga howevere, an other Swiss convention, takes place on the weekend of easter and is also in Lausanne so I can’t wait to go there! A few days ago I ordered a new cosplay costume that I absolutely want to show you.
I’m going to play Fumino Serizawa (the girl on the left) from Mayoi Neko Overrun 迷い猫オーバーラン!
But first, let me show you my newest Bento! I haven’t made any Bento recently because I was on holiday but since school started again and Silvakun resumed his Japanese studies I’m back in Bentoland again! It’s pretty stupid, I know, but I’m always embarrassed when eating a Bento at school because it causes so much attention and I don’t like to be stared at while eating. But since Silvankun isn’t embarrassed to eat Bento in his Japanese classes, (actually au contraire, he can’t wait to *awww* everyone with it..) I’m going to make the cutest Bento for him! This time it was a Ninja Bento…
I didn’t want to make it too girly and I think I succeeded. I saw the Ninja idea while googling Bento pics quite some time ago but I always wanted to try it once! There are Ninjas made of egg but also made of rice. I was too lazy to form rice so I simply used a hard-boiled egg and wrapped Nori around it. In the right tire there are mini skewers with chicken, bell pepper and zucchini. To give it a little bit of contrast and also because it tastes so good I added some feta cheese cubes, rocket and white sesame.
To see more Bento pics and to get a sneak peek at the new cosplay costume I ordered, read on!
Do you want to know, how I decided on my next cosplay?
Usually I visit the site Anime Characters Database and enter search criteria like hair color, lenght and eye color. Since I don’t want to wear a wig, I try to find characters whit blondish hair. If a hardcore cosplayer is reading this now, pleeeease don’t be shocked! hahaha! I know that for most cosplayer it’s about cosplaying a character they love and know for a long time but it’s difficult for me to play a Naruto or a Ruffy! Unfortunately the Anime Character Database filters also characters from Ecchi/Hentai games so it’s really though to find a girl with blond hair and school uniform that is not featured in one of the thousands of pervert games. Anyway, this time I was lucky! Since they have an “ecchi filter” now that makes it possible to show only “normal” characters and not porno girls I found my new cosplay character pretty soon! The Anime is too cute and I’m so happy to have found it! There are only 13 episodes and I already watched them all.
The character I want to cosplay is called Serizawa Fumino, goes to school and works part time in a patisserie. She can get very angry and always says “Die twice already!” when someone bothers her. What I like about their costumes is obvious, isn’t it? I love school and Maiko uniforms and this cosplay features both! And I like that she wears black tights instead of white ones. Sure it would be cool to once wear something like an armour but I feel comfortable in school uniforms and they’re much easier to store and to combine with something else for everyday use!
Nough said! See for yourself!
It’s cuuute isn’t it?! source
I’ll be back soon! Have a sunny weekend everyone!
