提督を想う気持ちは誰にも負けないネ!

Teased some time earlier, Tama-chan dons her lovely cosplay of one of Kantai Collection’s most popular Kanmusu (Kantai Musume; Ship Daughteru): Kongou.

An outfit from a Taobao store called DH Doll House, the workmanship is surprisingly fine, for this particular mass-production piece…

Got Tama-chan her cosplay wig via the same source as well, re-styling the base wig is not short of a hard work though, particularly the front bangs that attached to her twin buns which are clip-ons.

In the end I had to give up on attaching the bangs onto the buns… May need to research on how to do so later.

タマちゃん屋!鍵屋!

Braving through the hazy heat of all-year-long mid-summer last weekend, I rushed towards the site as soon as I got myself ready after my RL job. Oh yes, it’s Bon Odori Matsuri once again!

There was another event at another part of the island, a cosplay event featuring guest appearance of Aza Miyuko (An ex-member of Spiral Cats and a cosplay guest during AFAMY12), which sadly fell around the same time period as Bon Odori. Had to abandon the former in favour of securing a good parking space (For the whole night) on earlier hours to avoid the incoming crowd at the latter’s…

I was an invitee of Konatsu, a local ACG group full of like-minded folks and similarly enthusiastic comrades, to join them at their picnic site under a designated canopy given to them by the organisers since many of them are part of the dance performance for the day.

It was the mid of the a hot day when I reached my destination. Only a few early Konatsu birds were already there, chatting and hammering away their sumafo playing Love Live! School Idol Festival. XDc

タマちゃんの短い和服

Crying foul over the intense heat of the hot summer days, I’ve finally succumbed to Tama-chan’s demands and got her a new Kimono, in part as preparation for the upcoming Bon Odori visit next Moon…

From Rosemary Town (迷迭香小镇) on Taobao, this short, sexy Kimono set consists of  the Kimono itself, the obi, a pair of knee socks, a couple of red ribbons, a flowery head-dress, a guitar necklace and a fan (Sold Separately via add-on option on the sales page).

タマちゃんの礼装 Ver. 2.22: You Can (Not) Stop Improve

As mentioned during my latest post on Tama-chan’s ever-expanding improvements, aside from her 蒼色の呪術服, her new outfit from Fate/Extra CCC also had undergone a complete overhaul, courtesy of my seamstress. 

Version 1.0 of the CCC outfit 漆黒の魔術服 (Which you can see in full during AFA12) was commissioned some time before the release of the original PSP game itself, of which only the front side of the concept art for the outfit was shown at the time.

Due to the lack of official arts on the outfit’s back view during the time, my seamstress had to improvise and made the outfit as she sees fit, which was of course far from accurate as I found out later after the release of the game. 

Striving to make Tama-chan as close to her original as possible, a remake was commissioned alongside the aforementioned default reisou.
