Turquoise Beret Hat!

Omgoodness i've been slacking on posting my projects! It's been a while since I've come up with my own stuff.. I should .. really try to create an awesome hat, but i'm not that gifted yet :) 

This one is by Pierrot Yarns, it's a japanese yarn website (in english) and provides many many free patterns (japanese)! I particular was fond of this Beret.  I think i followed it as is, but extended the band a few more rows, and repeated round 9 six more times instead of four.  Overall this is my new favorite spring hat to wear, and I've already received so many compliments already!

I used Cascade Wool Yarn for this project.

it's kind of weird the close photos look a little heathery, but it's not! It's a gorgeous turquoise (or teal) just like in the bottom photo.  I love the way it looks!

Despicable Me Minion!

One of my friends had requested I make this, and they sent me a pattern here by Lurose18.

It was really fun to make haha took me an evening to put together.  Enjoy!!!!

and then I added the hair :)
And then the cat =^.^=

Sakura Con 2012!

A little late for my posting for Sakura Con! But this year it was definitely fun if not more fun than last year! Didn't take as many photos as I hoped, but between my brother and I, we got a lot of photos anyway.

This year, on Day 1 Friday, I cosplayed as Ciel Phantomhive in his pink dress from Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji:

And then on Day 2 Saturday, I cosplayed as Shiemi Moriyama from Blue Exorcist/Ao No Exorcist:

My boyfriend and I were a pair on Day 1 (Friday), or well, i mean, I don't know if you could technically call it a pair.. considering I was cosplaying a male character who was.. dressed as a girl.  and my boyfriend cosplayed as my character's butler, Sebastian.  The most memorable of this convention was that my boyfriend and I were both interviewed by CosplayNation, who's making a cosplay documentary!! It was really fun, and i've never been interviewed before and it was quite fun!! 

I loved both my cosplay. I think both of them were well made, quality wise, and I can't wait to wear them again!! Not many cosplays I wear again, but the last couple years i've been loving what Ive been choosing as cosplays and what I got to wear.  The Ciel Phantomhive cosplay is like a southern belle type dress and it's SOOO pretty.

Aside from that, here are some other photos of my boyfriend and I and our friends in our cosplays for Blue Exorcist and Black Butler! I would like to thank Pro Bono Photography and John C Hieber for some of these photos! (Pro Bono: 1st row, 2nd photo; 3rd row, 3rd and 4th photo) (John C Hieber: 1st row, 1st photo; 2nd row, 2nd photo)

And here are a few wonderful cosplays from that weekend!
