After more than 2 years of inactivity, I've returned to cosplay. Last Sunday, & I cosplayed Monster Hunter's Jinouga/Zinogre Blademasters. After around 40+ mins, the unbearable heat forced us to Abandon Quest and unequipped.
Was it the humidity, weather, the fur, the layers of armor or simply our health? It doesn't really matter. We finally broke the Jinouga Curse that persisted for 2 years - making a mad rush to constantly try to refine our costumes, burning the midnight oil and in the end, feel that it is not good enough or not completed enough to appear in it.
Many thanks to & for letting us have a place to nua and handle our costumes. We are really sorry for troubling you girls and for almost terraforming the floor outside your chalet. Thanks for responding to such a last minute request & for being good hosts.
Also thanks to Sindy Tay for the assistance with weathering some of the 'teeth' on Saturday, as the hours inch closer to a dateline, a pair of extra hands are priceless. The small details that were overlooked will all eventually add up to the overall feel of a costume. Like what Joanne & I told you, [Eye For Details] is a skill.
Sure, there will always be regrets. How I the garters that I did not make caused the thigh armor to keep sliding downwards in its absence, how the gloves that I put in so much effort to make sure the gauntlet armors don't fall off the gloves caused the most problems during the event. How we only cosplayed for such a short duration, how we didn't get to meet a lot of you guys, or if we even have photos at all hahaha.
Wearing heavy armor comes with a lot of restrictions. Senses are dulled, & I was unable to properly converse with people during an event- & that was what events were for. From now on, for events with 2 days, I will probably only wear heavy armor for 1 day. Oh yahh, we were also unable to really give out our coscards that we printed for this event.
But overall, I am pretty satisfied, having conquered myself.
