Aigue-Marine: Cosplay of 2011 by Aigue-Marine Aigue-Marine: Cosplay of 2011 by Aigue-Marine
Wow... I cannot believe 2011 is over already. This year passed by so fast. The fact that tonight's New Year's Eve feels pretty much surreal to me.
A Happy New Year to all of you though! I hope you'll be able to achieve your aims and to fulfill your desires! ♥♥♥

My past year was filled with many ups and downs: On the one hand I grew apart of some people and messed up some of my exams at university, I gave up huge parts of my private life to impress my employer and I was pursued by bad luck when it came to ordering materials and wigs for cosplay online...
On the other hand I got in touch with the people I grew apart with again and did well at university. I found new friends from all over the world, I discovered Tumblr, I got into comics, I finished nine lovely costumes, I attended my first convention abroad, I got featured in a cosplay calendar, I got an incredibly huge amount of positive feedback and received even lovely messages from one of DC's writers and one of DC's pencilers.
All things considered it sounds like I had a good year, doesn't it?

As I already mentioned I finished nine costumes this year. That is no exceptionally huge number - keeping the fact in mind that I also have my studies and an internship to concentrate on I'm happy though.
Some of my costumes have minor flaws - I'm not happy with Shiemi's, Luna's and Wendy's wigs for example and I could have done better on some parts of my Batgirl and Miss Martian stealth outfit too, but well... Generally speaking I'm content with the costumes I accomplished this year.
Furthermore being a cosplayer would be really boring if I had nothing to get better at, right?

Here's a list of all costumes I finished in 2011...
Costumes of 2011 - Starting at the upper left of the picture and ending at the lower right...
:bulletyellow: Miss Martian [Default] from Young Justice
:bulletorange: Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter
:bulletred: Katara [Season II] from Avatar - The Last Airbender
:bulletpurple: Batgirl [Stephanie Brown] from DC's Batgirl
:bulletblue: Shiemi Moriyama from Ao no Exorcist
:bulletgreen: Princess Calla from Disney's Adventure of the Gummi Bears
:bulletyellow: Miss Martian [Stealth] from Young Justice
:bulletorange: Wendy Darling from Disney's Peter Pan
:bulletred: Stephanie Brown [School Uniform] from Batman Inc.

And what do my New Year's Cosplay Resolutions look like?
In 2012 I want to focus on improving my crafting and wig-styling skills. It is my aim to work with materials I have never worked with before. I will also try to show different facial expressions and dynamic poses in my pictures.

In case that you want to give me advice, tips and/or constructive criticism on my work of 2011 feel free to leave me a comment! I really appreciate it!

Yes! He is definitely the best. Getting one of his cowls was the best decision I made concerning my Batgirl costume.
And I heard about the Manbat project! After that gorgeous Joker mask he made I cannot wait to see how Manbat will turn out!
