Rinoa & The Griever Lion Ring

8th March 2007

Dear Chibi,

Guess what Chibi was up to today? Perhaps the title gives it away.  I didn’t quite know what to think of it, but after much consideration, I decided to go and check it out. The UNSW Anime Club Launch Party was held at 6pm to 9.30pm over at the Main Campus and I decided to Cosplay (for the second time) Rinoa because it has been a while since I’ve last worn my costume, and I don’t really want to just wear it once in my life. Obviously it would be embarrassing to just wear the costume there, so I wore partial and got changed there. Surprisingly a lot of people turned up to the party, and it was very lively and enjoyable experience. One thing that annoyed me a bit was when people came up to me and said “OMG, It’s YUNA!” ehem….lol… Its FF8 people.

Anyways, I was introduced to soooooooooooooooooooooooo many people that evening it’s not funny… I don’t think I can remember any of their names ^^;; Maybe a few faces. Oh oh, Jim recognized me from the online course ‘Digital Illustration for Concept Art’ I did last year.. that was pretty surprising. Didn’t know I would actually meet online classmates. There was free food and drinks; I challenged a few random people in Connect4, played Pictionary, had general discussions on Anime, didn’t want to play Twister, people played Mario Kart or something, Go and so on.. and of course, there was the Cosplay Competition. A guy who cosplayed as a character from Gundam Seed came first and he got to choose which DVD he wanted; and I was to have the remaining one~ nice little fellow though, he insisted that I had my pick first since he says I should have won. I end up getting Midori no Hibi even though I’ve seen it already because the packaging was nice =)  Everyone I met this evening were super super nice. Had lots of fun.. too bad Kazzy couldn’t join me, since she had class till 9pm!

And so the party was coming to a close, and it was raining heavily outside…and GUESS WHAT? Kazzy saw Venerable on the way to the Roundhouse! That was really such a coincidence to find her here, and she offered to drive us both home ^.^ Yay, no need to take public transport in the rain late at night.

Animania 06

30th September 2006

Dear Chibi,
Animania turned out pretty good this year compared to the previous year, however there was lacking Final Fantasy cosplays which was a bit disappointing.

Here’s some pics of my Rinoa Heartilly cosplay; this is a working-in-progress mini site dedicated to our first cosplay group “Lock Heartilly“; ‘Lock’ comes from Tifa Lockhart and Rinoa Heartilly.

So far I’ve only got my section up, I’ll try and get Kaz’s page up ASAP, please be patient ^^

Thanks to those guys for coming along =D Hope you had fun today.
