A few Pacific Rim cosplay photos taken after returning from Supanova Melbourne (we were only there on Saturday).

We will probably wear these again at some point… because I forgot to pack Hermann’s walking cane and Newt’s tattoo paper didn’t arrive in time for the con! D’: But we still had a pretty solid day.

The hider jewellery I use when cosplaying characters who don’t have visible piercings. Maybe useful to other cosplayers, or like… people with jobs… who also have unnecessary holes in their faces…?

KAOS Softwear 8mm silicone hider plugs in version/colour 1.5 and clear 1.6mm Gorilla Glass right nostril screw (for my other earrings I just leave the jewellery out altogether as the holes aren’t very noticeable).

Tintin, Schrödinger (Hellsing), and Owen (Maggot Boy) are all examples of hider jewellery in action.

Sometimes I’ll take artistic liberties and add jewellery to a character if I think their look/personality is suited to it; but it’s all down to personal interpretation/preferences.

Going to a costume party tonight, wanted to be comfortable so went with Dave.

Outfit from yesterday, I wasn’t even doing anything I just love that stupid hoodie (unfortunately you can’t tell so well in the photos, but it has rainbow zips).

To see how the hat was folded go either here for pics or over here for a slightly more in-depth description.

The rest of the pages in the book are coming along slowly and have brought with them the realisation that my handwriting is worse now than it was when I was 5 years old.

Gravity Falls conspiracy map from the episode “Irrational Treasure”.

Some liberties were taken with the size/shape/design as I was unable to cohesively fold it into a hat otherwise. (While it looks to be folded like an ordinary paper hat, that method does not seem to work with the drawn designs.)

It’s approximately 21cm wide by 42cm tall.

Despite said liberties taken, it still comes out way too small to actually wear- it’d probably have to be at least twice this size to make a functional headpiece and then it wouldn’t fit inside the book.

Sure, I could’ve just stuck a blank piece of tattered paper in the book BUT WHERE WOULD THE FUN IN THAT BE?!

If you can make sense of the photos then you too can have a hat as stylish as this.

A black cat comes up to my apartment most nights, always between 23:00 and 01:00, probably to serenade the Helpercat™s.

… Either that or she’s really into anime and midnight is a more poignant time for bestowing magical powers on people.
