When I looked at my deviantArt profile page this morning I noticed that I hadn't posted a journal entry since the middle of February! Here are some news..!
➡ During the past weeks of inactivity I finished my 30-page term paper for university and worked on my costumes for the Leipzig bookfair which took part last weekend. I debuted my Ion Fortuna costume from Trinity Blood and my Catwoman / Selina Kyle costume there.
Although the bookfair is no real convention it (kind of) represents the start of the new cosplay season in Germany each year.
Since Leipzig is 550 kilometres away from the place I live I had never attended the bookfair before. It was great to see the fairground and the different booths for the first time though. I had a lot of fun watching the ECG (= European Cosplay Gathering) preliminaries and cosplaying Catwoman together with an amazing Gotham City Sirens group!
(At this point once again CONGRATULATIONS to Calssara who won the ECG preliminaries [Solo Skit]!)
➡ Unfortunately there are also bad news to announce. Due to the immense university workload I have to get over with this semester I won't be able to make more than two new costumes until August. Consequently my costume line-up looks rather sparse. I'm still unsure whether I can attend Dokomi in Düsseldorf or not.
Animuc 2012 (Munich)
Ion Fortuna (Trinity Blood) or Batgirl [Stephanie Brown] (Batman)

As soon as all my exams are over and all term papers handed in I'll start to work on my Princess Leia (Star Wars) costume for GenkiCon in Denkmark.
➡ Besides these costumes I'm also working on various cosplay tutorials. I'll upload a tutorial on how to make superhero masks out of Wonderflex or Worbla's Finest Art shortly. I'm also planning to upload a tutorial on how to make Catwoman's googles and her cowl. The pattern for the cowl will be available for purchase as well.
