Hello everyone! How are you doing?
I've been kinda offline in cosplay business for a few months. Sorry for that.
I've been bying some fabrics and ordering wigs and stuff, but nothing else.
First I would like to tell you that I got this message yesterday:
"Dear Mr. Janne RUSANEN,
We are pleased to inform you that your admission to International
Division of Seinan Gakuin University has been approved for the
2012-2013 academic year."
So, I'm going to Japan in the end of July! I'll be first seeing WCS in Nagoya, after that one week in Tokyo, and then I take a 36 hour boat trip to FUKUOKA! Palm trees and beaches! WOHOO~ ^^
I'll be studying in Japan for 4 months and coming back in January 2013. How cool is that?!
My school here in Finland (Business management) has been kinda boring this spring. Only a few classes to attend and even all of those ended like 2 months ago! Silly school. So I've been mostly drinking beer and going to GYM (we have a free school gym 50 meters from my house) 3-5 times a week! I was in a kinda buffed shape already, 85 kilos! Of course I gained some fat also, so now I'm doing some diet but still going to gym to not to lose my muscles. Well, at least 10 kilos more weight than previous summer, comparing present myself to my Jecht photos here in DA and I can totally see the difference! ^_^ Yai!
I have also been invited to some conventions as a guest! Which is SO COOL! My next convention to attend is in ROMANIA, BUCHAREST!~ End of this month
I'll be the guest of Cosplay Gen there~ Check it out here: [link]
During this spring I was also a cosplay judge in Calendario Cosplay, Costa Rica: [link]
And a virtual guest and judge in Cosplay ComCom, Tijuana: [link]
I'll announce the other international events later when the information is public! Maybe I'll come to your country~ ^^
What else I've been doing this spring? Well, we have been doing some cooking.
Homemade bagels! Omnom~
First of May we had a nice grill party~ MEAT + BEER = WIN
Here you can see chicken and bacon.
We basically wrapped everything in bacon. Meat wrapped in bacon, chicken wrapped in bacon, mushrooms wrapped in bacon, BACON WRAPPED IN BACON!~ <3
Then I was visiting our summe cottage, fixing the bird homes! I found this totally cool one, build in 1986! Woh, so old and fascinating piece of history *_*
I put three new homes in the trees~ New home on the right! Metal roof and everything!
Of course I was also taking care of my little turtle, Kalle. She is one energetic fellow~ <3
Then we can get to COSPLAY BUSINESS! This is the stuff I ordered a few weeks ago. Guess who I'm going to cosplay? I changed my mind a bit.
Well anyway, GILDARTS CLIVE FROM FAIRY TAIL
That wig I bought is a front lace wig, kinda expensive but totally worth it! Looking so natural on my head.
I'm also so tall and big nowdays that I thought Gildarts would fit me kinda nicely. I also have the same head shape. And BEARD, always growing one.
I might be getting a bit old, whahaha~
So I started two days ago, doing this kinda slowly because I still have 2 weeks time left before the convention in Romania.
Made the metal arm out of wonderflex~
Painted it with Citadel miniature paints. Using a tiny hard brush and 4 different shapes of silver! COOL~
Sorry, the phone camera photo is kinda crappy, eating all the cool colors!
Anyway! I'll be posting more updates this week. WIP stuff!
Just wait for it!
Getting active in cosplay stuff again~
Have a nice spring, all of you!
