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!

You've some awesome costumes, the ones with green skin (I'm sorry I don't Miss Martian ._.) looks great, specially because of the smoothness of the skin colour *u* Also, as batgirl you DO look cute! >w<

Es ist toll, was du dieses Jahr alles geleistet hast! Ich find, du hast dich dieses Jahr wieder sehr weiterentwickelt, was Cosplay angeht, vor allem durch die Comic-Cosplays :3 Du hast viele neue Sachen ausprobiert, wie Bodypaint oder die sich dehnenden Ganzkörperanzüge und es kamen jedes Mal richtig tolle Sachen raus~ Du verdienst die vielen positiven Reaktionen und es hat mich sehr gefreut, dass ich dich dieses Jahr so oft fotografieren durfte :heart:
Ich wünsch dir nen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr und dass die Sachen, die dieses Jahr net so gut geklappt haben, besser werden und die erfolgreichen Sachen weiterhin so erfolgreich sein werden : D

Aww! Erstmal vielen Dank für deinen ausführlichen Komemntar!
Ich finde sowas ja - wie Du weißt - immer viel toller als irgendso einen "Single-Word+Emoticon"-Kommentar.
Und es freut mich, dass du findest, dass ich mich dieses Jahr weiterentwickeln konnte... - auch wenn ich selbst diese Entwicklung nicht so deutlich sehe.
Ich möchte mich im kommenden Jahr darauf konzentrieren immer neue Materialien zu verwenden und noch säuberlicher zu arbeiten. Und irgendwelche coolen und freakigen Sachen auszuprobieren, die noch keiner von mir erwartet hat.
Oh, es war mir übrigens eine Ehre von Dir fotografiert zu werden. <3 Immer gerne wieder!
