Happy Halloween!!

I just love Halloween, so I wanted to do a special post for it~ :)
Some ppl might know that I don't like scary stuff, I don't watch horror movies (except for Battle Royale, but it's not really a horror movie..).. But I love it for other reasons.. :) I like to dress up and stuff like that :) And I have always celebrated my birthday together with halloween (because halloween is on 31.10 and my birthday is 1.11 :) )so I have a lot of good memories of halloween.. :)

Did you celebrate halloween in anyway? Did you dress up or celebrate in some other way? :) I went to Tampere for the last weekend and partied with my friends :) And today I just made this make-up and took some pics.. :) My make-up is pretty basic, because I don't have anything special stuff like scar wax or fake blood atm.. But here's the pictures:




Yeah :'D

And I have to share this song (and viddie) with you all:


I just loooove this song and I really love it when Marilyn Manson is the singer<3 :3
There's also new viddie that is this years, but.. I don't like it.. :( Because no one else can really pull this song like it's supposed to.. :) But if you wanna see and hear it, here's a link to it.. :)

And why we don't have houses decorated like that house in Finland? :(
I'll do another post soon, because tomorrow is my 20th b-day~ But I don't think that I can do it for tomorrow, so I guess I'll do it on Wednesday or Thursday.. :)
'Till next time~

How hard can it be to choose a pair of knickers?

Another post, and so soon! OMG!
Well.. I didn't have anything nice to do and Ilona (blame her for this) had a nice GIF in the end of her newest blog post.. Sooooo~
I remebered that in the studio photoshoot with Ninnu we took some.. NICE pictures of Panty having a hard time to choose a pair of knickers.. So.. *evil laugh* Here's something fun I made:


Ninnu as Panty (costume handmade by her)
I'm behind the camera~

At least I had some fun making this :'D Hopefully ppl will have fun watching this :'D

Oh, I made this using Photoshop CS5, if you want to know :D It's really easy to make a GIF animation, so if you want to know some tips, etc, just ask~ :)

~Kimmy

ps. I made some other GIFs too, but I didn't want to make another entry for them, so here are those:



Silent times

Well.. There's nothing special going on atm when it comes to cosplay, I haven't started making any new costumes (I've been lazy), but I've been buying new wigs and now I'm waiting for one auction in eBay to end.. So I'm just gathering stuff atm, but hopefully I'll be able to start my making my costumes soon..

But I think that now I'm just updating all the new stuff, so I'm gonna talk about what I've bought and what I will buy, so this post ain't that special.. But I promise that I will post a way more special post (!!!!) on next Tuesday, 1.11!! Because that day I'll turn 20 years old :'D But yeah~

I got one wig over a week ago, and I was supposed to use it when I'm going to cosplay Jessica Hamby (from True Blood) but.. The wig I got was too dark and well.. Not so copper.. So I'm not sure if I'll use it or sell or use in some different cosplay, we'll see.. :) But I did take a test photo to see if I could pull off the character, here's the test photo~


What do you think? :D I want to hear some honest opinions~ :)

And.. I got myself a new cosplay project too.. Because I joined this Strawberry Panic!-group my friend is having~ I'm going to cosplay as Chikaru Minamoto:


I'm still looking for a wig for this cosplay, but I already have found one good (and cheap), I'm just waiting for my next paycheck before I buy it :'D I've also found a good cardigan (mens *cough cough*) that I may buy~ :) 

Hmm.. I also placed a bid to some pretty classic loafers, for this and also for my secret cosplay, I'm the only bidder, so hopefully I'll get these (and the auction is ending soon~)



The only thing I'm gonna do to these is to paint them dark brown.. :) But these are so cheap that it's no big deal :)

Hmm.. That's pretty much all, not much but still something.. :) But I know that I have to start making my costumes soon, because I know what happens if I leave them waiting etc.. :')

Other new thing:
My sister has now a deviantART account too~ There's not much, because she has only one costume (Wendy from Kuroshitsuji) atm, but she has some plans:
- Alice ~ Alice in Wonderland (Disney cartoon)
Kizuna Hyūga ~ Strawberry Panic!

So yes, she's also part of our Strawberry Panic!-group :) We have the main 12 characters~ And this group can be seen at Desucon Frostbite (Saturday)~
Here's one picture of her Wendy cosplay:


So this and more can be found from her deviantART account: ElyonToWendy

Well.. 'Till next time and that's on 1.11~ ;D

Barbies like to cosplay

As the title says Barbies like to cosplay too, and my friend Ane-ue is holding a halloween contest, here's the rules and more information of it:

"The contest rules are; buy used old barbie or just use your own (or your sisters on if you wanna be mean) and dress her up for cosplay. It can be any character, from disney, anime, games..anything. And when you have done that. Take pictures about it. Better background for the cosplay, better picture. You HAVE to be follower of thisblog. So accound needed. I can't choose the winner if you don't have it. When you have done your barbie, photoshooted. Write your entry in your blog, and link it to THIS entry. You can tell about the project, what have you done etc. And why you choosed the cosplay for her. And ofcourse, the due date is the halloween day "

I just used copy-paste and took that text from Ane-ue's blog,
here's the blog: Many faces of cosplay
And that blog post about the halloween contest is here

Oh, and she has some prizes for the winner too:
"- New wig
- false eyelashes with multiple choises
- eyeshadow kit for any cosplay
-liquid latex bottle"

So, I really wanted to take part in her contest, so me and my sister went through some old boxes and dressed 3 Barbies up in different costumes:

Swan Princess, Spirit of Nature (my sis's oc) and Cinderella
When I read that blog post that Ane-ue had made of this contest, I really wanted to do Cinderella, because we already have that costume for our barbie so all we had to really do now was to dress her up.. And I really love disney, so Cinderella was a must.. :) And other two barbies we just tooked with us when we went take photos as extras, but still :)

So, I was behind the camera and she helped me with the dolls when we went to take these photos :)









Go and take part in her contest, it was pretty fun to dress these dolls up :'D
And I'll try to make another costume with more haloween-theme.. :)

Oh, and I have some post ideas so I guess I'll try my best to do some of those soon :)

Non-cosplay photoshoot with Ninnu

Hello, it's time for some photos again~
Last weekend I went to Ninnu's place to hangout and to take some photos with her on saturday~ :)
She was my model and I think we got pretty nice photos~
It was really windy and cold, so I'm just happy that she agreed to this style I had on my mind :'D
And the sun was also pretty nasty, it was so bright so it made shooting a little harder too.. :/

But I like these photos a lot and I hope you all do like these too~ :)

So,
photography, styling and retouch are made by me
Ninnu was my model
and we made the make up together~ :)

Here's the photos~









These and more can be also found from my deviantART account for my photography :) Here's a link to it. :)

I've also been wondering if you like the fact that I add my photography here (well, I'm not adding all, thank god)? Or do you hate it?
I don't do this THAT often (okay, now I had 2 shoots in a week, but still..).. What's your opinion, I would like to hear :)
