The fate of Chizuru's wig // Something about Tracon

Again unnecessary post about wigs? =_=

Here's the thing, I bought a new wig for Chizuru. The other one was... well.. not as good as it could be (probably because I had to cut it for some reason), but it's okay! I have a new one now! And the old was able to be used for something else! You'll find that out later while reading this post..
This new wig I bought was a little bit too long and curly, so guess who had to show the straightening skills again? >8D
The wig before straightening and cutting.
Dem hair clips.
The lowest layers done.
Done. That clip is just there to show you guys how much I had to cut.
After cutting and putting it to a ponytail:
What happened to that old one? D:
-The old one became Kaoru-cosplay wig for ShiroLuna mah brotha! o/ <3

Still kinda thinking this is more like Chizuru than Kaoru idk...

And now about Tracon VIII! You'll see me cosplaying as Arisa Uotani (Fruits Basket) there on Saturday for 100% sure! I'm not sure about Sunday, but if I can't figure anything else out, I'll cosplay as Chizuru. The normal version, or the Sweet School Life version These two seems to be the strongest options and I'm pretty sure these two doesn't change ^^''. I'll post the plans here when I know better! Good bye now! o/

Curly wig? Not anymore!

This is about my Arisa Uotani cosplay-wig. I bought it from from Cosplay-kirppis (Cosplay-Second Hand Shop). It was cheap and the color was good so I thought that would be a good wig for Arisa, but it was too curly. The seller told me I can straighten that wig, so I did. It was also a good practice for me (read: I'm studying to a hairdresser).
How did I start the whole operation? Well, first I had to choose the right tools. These tools I bought from school some time ago, and now I finally was able to USE them! And this time my tools were; a brush for fake hair, a little spray bottle (filled with cold water), 5 hair-clips, clearing comb and a straightener.

Le random picture of my hairdresser package, sorry :'D

 And these two pictures are my wig before I straightened it. As you can see, it's long and curly. These pictures are taken with my phone's camera, so they are not as good as they could be, excuse me for that.

And the process went sorta like this: First, I had to ask my brother to be my wig stand. After an hour he agreed. When he agreed and the wig was on his head, I made the "crisscross parting" for the wig and clip the extra hair on top of the head. I took thin sections of hair and straightened them. It was slow, but the best way.
3 lowest sections straightened up!
Sooo much hair left~~
Last layer and only half to go D:::
BACKSIDE DONE! [insert victory-dance here]
When the backside was done, it was time to straight the bangs. The bangs were pretty long, and after straightening them, they seemed to be even longer, which sure was a good thing because Arisa's hair is all long and straight. The top of the hair is wavy, like I care about such a small thing like that! >8D Wavy looks better in my opinion.
Here's some bangs-straightening-process-derp-pics for you, enjoy!




The good thing was this wig ain't that thick, straightening was so much easier. And yes, "the wig stand" changed. My brother was so done. :'D


DONE WIG IS DONE <3

This was it folks, more process about Arisa later! o/

Oulun Animeseminaari - TURRRSAS and photoshooting

On Sunday night I came back home from Oulu's anime seminar alive. The seminar was only a small week end "con"in Oulu no shit Sherlock?. The con building was Valve, just like last year.

Friday
I started my journey to Seminar already on Friday. After school I went to Jennysja's place in Ii. Ii is pretty close to Oulu, so we were able to travel from Ii to Oulu on Saturday and Sunday. Uhm.. Nothing much to say about Friday, nothing really happened on that day. We were supposed to photoshoot our cosplays on that day, but we were too lazy so.. meh. >8D We both were mostly just making our last-minute-makeup-tests.

Saturday
Laggy Saturday morning~ Me and Jennysja woke up at 8.00 o'clock in the morning! Soon after we woke up, Jennysja's two awesome friends tagged with us to the con in Mario and Wario cosplays! Btw, thanks for your company! <3 I was cosplaying as Retsu Unohana from Bleach and Jennysja was cosplaying as Rikio Kamamoto from K. Soon after we four arrived to Oulu we saw CissyDella and her bf there and of course some other awesome friends <3. It was so nice to spend time with them too :'3. I was kinda tired and I wanted to go lag somewhere with my awesome furry friend RedMoon. That stopped soon because of the Bleach cosplayers aka Valkoinen Samurai (Jushiro Ukitake), Hasakitsuki (Kiyone Kotetsu mah sista<3) and of course Jäätynyt Enkeli (Uryu Ishida). We checked the building first in this group and after that headed outside for photoshooting. It was good to do it before it start raining.
Cosplayer: Me (Retsu Unohana)
Photographer: Valkoinen Samurai






Of course we had to photoshoot our group too! >8DD

Cosplayers: Me (Retsu Unohana), Hasakitsuki (Kiyone Kotetsu) and Valkoinen Samurai (Jushiro Ukitake)
Photographer: Jäätynyt Enkeli





As you can see from the pictures, I had Minazuki with me and Ukitake had his Sogyo no Kowatari twins. Soon after taking few pictures, Ukitake and Unohana made a swap! >8DDD
And this is what happens behind Unohana! >8D

Oh! I also got Ishida's RILLIT glasses! 
Professor Unohana at you service! >8D
"U Mad Ishida? BD"
Btw, that girl behind me is my friend Redmoon <3
Thank you for your company as well <3

And I also stole Lee Sin's (aka. CissyDella's bf's) sunglasses Hohohoo, I'm such a horrible person~! >8DD
 Unohana: Lee Sin, can I have your sunglasses plz? >8DD
Lee Sin: *sigh* Fine~
Lux: Hurrrdurrr~

Like a baws! >8DD

After photoshoot we went to town with some other friends and soon Jäätynyt Enkeli, Hasakitsuki and Valkoinen Samurai had to go to their aunt's place. I still stayed for while, but I didn't actually really do anything worthy enough to write here. Just hanged with friends and then go to Ii with Jennysja, Wario and Mario-cosplayers. We just went to the grocery store, bought some food and sweets and derp all night long. Oh god I had so much fun! XD  Like usual derping, we laughed like an idiots for very stupid things. :'D

Sunday
Even more laggy Sunday.. I was so tired and I just didn't want to put a cosplay on, but then I saw myself in front of the mirror. I didn't even make any kind of test for this version of Unohana (read: Defeated version of her!). I just randomly added some blood on my face and that was it.. Jennysja was cosplaying as Rikio Kamamoto again and those Wario and Mario-cosplayers were as Totoro and Monkey (kigurumi).
When we three were done with our cosplays, Jennysja's mother drove us to Oulu. When we arrived, I first derped around with some friends again and then it was time for the Piano Concert. The concert was just so awesome and very entertaining. I could recognize most of the melodies he played. The only one I couldn't recognize was the Prince of Persia melody. No, I don't mean the guy who was playing piano couldn't play it. I just couldn't recognize it, okay? 
After concert the con-goers were able to write song wishes to that guy who played the piano. He said he will learn them.
Guess what song I wrote down?
I just simply LOVE this melody! And the game and everything! <3
Too bad he played only for 30 minutes, I could listen to that concert sooo much longer! Hopefully there will be next time! 
I almost forgot! Me, Jäätynyt Enkeli, Valkoinen Samurai and Hasakitsuki photoshooted again! 
Cosplayer: Me (Defeated!Unohana Retsu)
Photographer: Valkoinen Samurai



 ^My favourite picture! 


I also took picture of Hasakitsuki's and Valkoinen Samurai's Hakuouki cosplays, go check them from their Anime Seminar summary's. (: I only publish my own pictures here. ^^
During Hakuouki photoshoots some derp happened, so don't even think about running away! >8DDD

DERP STORM!

Aahhahaa, Unohana the thief strikes again! o/

Random Ochimizu-drinking pictures plz!
"Not sure if..."
"Let's give it a try anyway and see what happens!"
"Pfffffffffhs OH HELL NO!"
Grumpy Unohana is grumpy now! 8C

After photoshooting and derping enough it was time to say good bye. Or Jäätynyt Enkeli, Hasakitsuki and Valkoinen Samurai had to leave, I still had to stay at the con for a while. I was waiting for my ride back home, but not for long. Oh! If you were wondering what does that "TURRRSAS" mean, that comes from some Minazuki-derps idk. Tursas actually means octopus in finnish, not ray >8D.
Anyway, Sairu-chan says good bye! And waddles away! o/
Until next time folks!

A tiny change..

Just saying that my Saturday cosplay to Animeseminaari will change from this:


To this Unohana again...

So my plans will look like this now:

Saturday:

Character: Retsu Unohana
Series: Bleach

Sunday:

Character: Retsu Unohana
Series: Bleach

The reason why changing was that I don't need to carry that much things with me, all I need to pack is just one cosplay. And now I don't need to be afraid of wearing skirts! >8DDD

And I just noticed this is my first con withOUT Hakuouki this year! \o/

Aaaaaaaaaand now I'm going to pack my cosplays, byeee~ <3
See ya real soooooooooooooon~ >8D

Ei, en aio silti hakata ketään... ehkä >8D
