My New Cosplay Blog!

Hi! It's been a while since my last post, but school has finally finished for me! :D
I've decided to split my blog into two and completely dedicate this blog to illustration work.
Haruta Mao is my cosplayer name! If you are interested in my future cosplay, please follow me at my new blog,
; A ; Thank you so much for following me so far!

I haven't blogged in so long. I'm such a terrible blogger...but ah, well.
Here's an update on my unhealthy obsession with Arpakasso!(*´∀`*)
Here's my baby, Pablo. He's so darned soft. ehehehehee

Kiss for my pacca.

I also started making my Ririchiyo cosplay! Inu to Boku SS has really grown on me. When I read the manga a few years ago, I didn't like it. I think growing a bit older has allowed me to appreciate the manga. :'D For now, my Ririchiyo cosplay is on hold since I need to finish my Elise cosplay for Anime North. It's really creeping up on me!

I started with one alpaca and now my family has grown to be this large! ahahahahah!
From left to right, their names are...
Top row: Bijou, Mii-chan, Merry, Pablo, Mamma
Bottom row: Rimi, Federico, Junior.
Mama is so pleased with the alpaca fam jam! ‎(●´◡`●) It's so nice to roll into a wall of alpacas instead of the actual wall when I'm sleeping. Sometimes I wake up with an alpaca in my arms and giggle a little. It's marvelous.

Ah, but my obsession doesn't end there! It's not enough that I get to hug some alpacas, I need them to be inside me as well. I am forever one with alpaca. This alpaca curry tasted pretty good. I'll make it again when I have lots of time to kill!

meet Pablo!~ DOLLS WIP

I finally received my arpakasso in the mail!  His name is Pablo. 
If I'm going to camwhore, I want to put on my cosplay makeup...and be with an alpaca. xDDD So I did a makeup test! My bangs in this picture aren't right since my webcam flips the image.
My friends and I are planning a DOLLS cosplay together for sometime in the fall. :> 
Hopefully things will go as planned and we'll have around 9 people cosplaying. I'll be cosplaying Aikawa Rami, the 2nd brigade's sassy captain. If you haven't read DOLLS by Naked Ape yet, I recommend that you do! It's an exciting psychological action series featuring Naked Ape's beautiful, grungy style.

...and to end off, Otoya alpaca. The first thing I wanted to do once I got my plush in the mail was to put my Otoya cosplay on him, hahahaa.

Winter Wonderland 2012

Gwendolyn: Me :D
Photo: Misaki

I went to a small, local cosplay event recently. 
There were less attendees than I expected and not many people were in cosplay. It wasn't good weather for cosplay, haha. I still had a lot of fun with my friends though! :D ...and I finally did a photoshoot for my Odin Sphere cosplay! :D

I spent around 1.5 hours outside in the cold for photos. I couldn't feel my hands during the shoot. I knocked my hands together but they were completely numb. xDD It was totally worth it though! I will upload the photos when my lovely photographer finishes editing them. :>

These photos, however, are taken by my friend, Misaki! She's so nice and sweet. Sometimes I worry if I freak her out with my weirdness. ; U ; b

...with my Grandson and middle son, Carmen. We camwhored with Carmen's iphone.
...she makes me want to buy an iphone too, but to be honest, the only thing I'd use it for is Google Maps because I am extremely talented at getting lost. OTL

Alpaca Family

This is my alpaca family!
I've developed an obsession for alpacas and Arpakasso. It's a sickness.
A quick drawing for my friends who I've met through cosplay!
I met a lot of good friends in 2011 and 2012.
; U ; bbb I'm very glad to have met them and I think that 2012 will be a good year!
