Just scrolled through my blog. Somehow it consists of me pointing at people xD

I’m terribly sorry for the inactivity on this blog. I’ve been moving into a new flat for the past few weeks. But stress is decreasing; so there’ll be new stuff very soon! Stay tuned ;)

Hi there! By any chance could you share your pattern for kay's bag please? Thank you!

Hey love! I would love to but I don’t have one. I just looked at the picture and made it xD I do have a tissue box inside though. It’s pretty much this size ^^ just try around a bit with paper patterns. I would draw you one but I’m in the middle of renovation and lack time atm. so sorry :(

Hello! I am a huge fan of your cosplay. I was wondering if you could tell me where you got your dresses for you Portagas D Rouge and your Cindry cosplays. :D

Heya! thanks a lot!

I made both the dresses myself :/ therefore i took my own measurements and sewed them. For the Rouge dress I used a Burda pattern. Sorry, I’m not much of a help :/

This seamless trim technique is a method I’ve been using for years to add custom trim to my costumes without any top-stitching at all. Similar in a way to bias tape, but with many key differences in implementation and results. No one taught me this technique, but now I’m teaching it to you! Please read through all the instructions below before asking any further questions, and happy trim-making! C:

Wow you cosplayed at the Sherlock Holmes Museum? That's so cool! I'm (hopefully) stopping by there next week when I go to London. Was it a nice place to visit?

Yes I went there in Cosplay twice :) it is really nice. It’s not awfully much to see but a Must-see for every Sherlockian. And they’ve got all kinds of neat stuff in their shop. I always buy something :D there’s also a Sherlock Holmes pub near Trafalgar Sq. You can drink special ale and beer there and the walls are full of SH stuff :3 have fun! Take pictures!!

"…I forgot my key…"

3, 13, 18?

Heya thanks for asking <3

3: Why I love my best friend:

she’s crazy but loyal. she’s always honest even if you haven’t asked for it. she always offers you her help and she’s really encouraging! she shares many of my fandoms but is not one of those fandom monsters. I’d never want anyone else but her as my best friend :)

13: Life goal(s):

Oh god. errrrrrrr. I want to finish my studies and earn proper money.  I’d really love to buy an English cottage in West England one day. And I want my students to learn a lot on my lessons :)

18: Phobia:

I don’t really have any phobia. I hate being in a small room with too many people though. I don’t panic then but I easily faint.

1, 16, and 17 please :D (I love you, your blog, and your cosplay! Never stop being awesome ♥)

awww <3 thank you very much! ^___________^V

1: the meaning behind my URL:

A few years ago I was a huge fan of the Japanese pop band NEWS and one of its members Shigeaki Kato. In one video he dressed up as a woman in a kimono and his fellow members called him Shigeako since -ko is a female suffix in Japanese. So I started to call myself Shigeako. Not the best choice as people cannot pronounce it that well but it’s too late now xD I think I really shouldn’t change it.

16: Favourite movie:

Omg I’m not good at that favourite whatever thing. There is no THE favourite movie of mine but ‘Hot Fuzz’ is definitely among my Top 10. (Love the whole trilogy :D)

17: A fact about my life:

I wish I were British.

cosplaying-on-a-budget:

Most of my wigs require trimming and shaping of some kind. I hang onto the clipping to make curls/ahoge. I don’t like using a lot of product to get the ahoge look and find this method is a good alternative. As you can see in the photos the glue at the base of the curl is never visible. It is also super easy to take out if you need to use your wig for a costume that doesn’t require a curl.
Note: the curl used to make this tutorial is slightly larger then the one used in both the cosplay pictures and the finale picture. This was so it showed up better in the photos.
