Hyper Japan

So yesterday Becky went to the Hyper Japan. I have to say I LOVED it.

I went in Cosplay of course my first event that I have (and not my last)

I went an Setsuna check out this post to see a picture of her.

I was held at Earl Court and it was set out really well lots of space.

There was lots of amazing stalls. I really liked the Nintendo stand. Please excuse my terrible photos I was using my phone :).

They were selling GameCube's for £30. I didn't buy one but I was tempted.

They also had this amazing statue of Ganondorf it was nearly £300 if I had the money I would have bought it.

Few more Nintendo based pictures.

Me and Link.

Me, Becky, Mario and Luigi.


Bought these really tasty drinks.

Saw some robots

And an awesome Cosparade.


I bought myself a few little things.

And a new pair of PJs and a Zelda top but I forgot to photograph them.

I have decided to go again at the christmas market and I have decided to do the cosparade.

So see you there!!!!

Cosplay Projects

Hi guys,

I am trying to post at least once a week I'm all new at this blog stuff and seeing as I have not fully completed any cosplays yet I thought would share with you my current ideas and WIPs.

First is my biggest project of all and I hope I can get it finished before Octobers MCM and that is my pepakura Dearic Armour.

This has been a massive project and hopefully I will have it in time check my pepakura post to see my progress.

Second is for an actual event Hyper Japan. Becky Bedbug and I are going Saturday next week I am going as Setsuna.

This has been pretty easy just trying to master the Anime make up but I think I am getting there.

Next is all of these from Alice: Madness Returns

I have made starts on the Caterpillar and Mad Matter. I will do a full post on this once we have taken photos in an appropriate settings.

Selene from the Underworld

Lastly (well for the moment) Maya and Lilith from Borderlands this will be done with another person. I'm going to be Maya (blue hair)

If you want to make any suggestions of Cosplays I should do please comment.

Hi there,

I haven't written in a while as i have been on holiday YAY!! You would think that but no it rained all but one day.

This is me one the good day in the hot tub.

The rest of the week was pretty wet to wet to even go white water rafting. How crazy is that.

See pretty wet.

I did go on a 12 mile hike and saw some cool waterfalls.

I also made a friend Goatrude she followed us down a mountain cried every time we walked away.

That was my holiday ticked 2 things off my bucket list climbed a mountain and went on a ski lift which was nice.

I have been making a bit of Cosplay recently too so watch out for posts about that.

Penny Dreadful

****Disclaimer Spoilers****

So I've been watching Penny Dreadful over the last few weeks ans last night was the last episode so I thought I would write down what I thought about it. So when I saw the adverts for I thought it was just a Gothic drama set in Victorian London. Boy was I wrong lets do a run down on the characters.

Sir Malcolm Murray

Sir Malcolm is the main protagonist. He is an aged explorer. The story is centred around him and his quest to find his daughter, Mina, who has been taken by an entity known only as the master. (My bet is the master is none other then Dracula)

He shares his house with:

Vanessa Ives

Vanessa is essentially Sir Malcolm's adoptive daughter. He has known her all her life. Vanessa has a creepy and sad story. She was a mischievous child who got herself into trouble in her teens by ruining the soon to be marriage between Mina and her prince charming. After this she is overwhelmed with guilt and becomes hysterical she is institutionalised. She doesn't seem to get any better so her parents decide to lobotomise her. After being bed ridden by the lobotomy she is visited by the devil, a deal is stricken and Vanessa is given a new lease of life and powers to match.

Next is Ethan Chandler

He is a sharp shooter in a travelling show from the States. He is hired by Sir Malcolm to help in his quest.
Ethan has a secret he is actually a Werewolf. His keen senses help him with this marksmanship. His background is kind of shady but I think he left some bodies back in the states.

Dr Victor Frankenstein

His character is based after he created his first 'Creature', its starts with him trying again create a new 'creature'. This creature seems to be more friendly. His success is short lived when the 'Creature' returns.

The Creature

After being abandoned by Dr Frankenstein he feel hated by normal people. After one he is shown kindness by someone he he starts to long for love. After finding Frankenstein again and being rejected he makes a request for a bride.

There a few miner characters

Van Helsing

Not much to say about him apart from he's Van Fucking Helsing.

Brona Croft

The love interest of Ethan she is dying of consumption. She may even become the Bride.

Dorian Gray

Although we have not seen his portrait I believe his story will be pretty traditional. He is the the love interest of Vanessa.

Lastly there is Sembene

Not a lot is known about him he is Sir Malcolm's man servant. He is probably a tribesman from one of Sir Malcolm expeditions.  

The series moulds together all of the key characters of Victorian horror literature and does it seamlessly. 

The series was very compelling. A roller-coaster ride, hating characters on minute a loving them the next. For example Sir Malcolm there a times you think he is he is very selfish only caring about saving his daughter but then he sacrifices her for Vanessa and exclaims that she is his daughter.

There is a lot of mystery around most of the characters not really fully knowing their histories which make you come back for more.

The only character you know the full story for is Vanessa but this helps you understand her and really love her.

Overall bloody loved this series and cannot wait for the next one let know what you think.

Lots of love
