We made it again this year to the Otaku House Cosplay Idol finals!! THANK YOU! Now you can enter here and vote up to 4 times for our costumes. Once for each of our 3 cosplay photos, and once for our 'Idol Factor'.
I'm not used to write about my life here on the DA journals in a blog-like way, but I feel this is a pretty special occasion. As you may have seen, several months ago we made the Dark Steel armor costume from Dragon's Prophet as a commission for Infernum Productions. Well, it turns out they eventually invited me to Gamescom (in Cologne, Germany) along with some great cosplayers! So I'll be attending the convention and I'll wear my armor there, of course!
I'll be tweeting and uploading lots of pictures to our page. So feel free to follow me and, needless to say, if you're also attending Gamescom, come and say hi!!
This past weekend we attended the Level Up León convention and we made a new lipdub video with and our friends.
Once again, we appear in our Lilith and Roland costumes but, this time, we took our Borderlands 1 ones and added the cell shading effect to them. It was super fun!!! Hope we can make a new cell shaded Borderlands 1 photo shoot. And we also appear with my new Cordelia Starling (Lollipop Chainsaw) and Erik's Soma (God Eater) costumes.
By now, here you are this video. Enjoy!!
This time, it doesn't have so many restrictions, so I hope everyone is able to watch it ^^

We love Deviantart, we usually try to upload here our best pictures, we keep this organized and clean for you. We could say that DA is our serious portfolio. But, If you want to know more about us, about our cosplay curiosity, our work in progress, making offs, things we like, everyday fun stuff and other things we do, feel free to enter and take a look to our fanpage.
This is our way to say thanks to all of you who follow and support us! We are giving away three Tekken Tag Tournament 2 press kits including two 20x30cm prints of my Zafina and Nina Williams cosplays. Enter here to participate.
I want to specially thank Namco Bandai spanish friends for sending us this amazing and exclusive stuff and letting us share it with you guys. It includes: - Tekken key-ring - Press disc with images, trailers, etc. - Character card (each box has one random character) . - Poster. - Fighter pass. - Letter from Mishima Heihachi inviting you to the tournament. It's super awesome!! (The only con is that it's in spanish. But Imagine he is inviting Miguel!!!) - And our prints!
Here I go again. I'm participating in the 2013 Otaku House Cosplay Idol contest. I signed in the contest encouraged by the surprising place I achieved last year. I had serious doubts about which costume to submit. I was doubting between Skarlet (boobs) and Tali (craftmanship) and I finally submitted Tali as I think maybe it's not so eye catching but it's one of the costumes we've put more effort on and one of the most accurate we've made. Yes, I'll never learn XD So I'll be very grateful if you spend a little time voting for me ♥ Thanks!!
Btw, I wanted to take this chance to tell you we've been very, very busy during last month. That's why we haven't uploaded almost any picture neither answered your kind comments. We've been making a difficult costume (at least, difficult for us) in collaboration with Infernum Productions Dragon's Phophet. We already made a fantastic photo shoot, but we can't publish anything until the producer lets us to do so. It has been such a costuming challenge for us! We are very excited and looking forward to showing you guys! If you feel curious about this project, you can check out our WIP pictures in our Facebook page
Another fantastic video recorded by El Niño Mutante at the last Japan Weekend convention in Madrid. We appear wearing our Borderlands 2 costumes in the minute 2:10 (and we beat the Lynchwood Sheriff up XD). Enjoy!
*They didn't let Erik (Zer0) enter the con with his sword, that's why it doesn't appear in the video
About two weeks ago El Niño Mutante www.facebook.com/elninomutante asked us to make a cosplay video beccause he wanted to try his new steady cam device. We (, , and I) agreed immediately!! I took the chance to wear my Eliza Cassan from deus Ex Human Revolution cosplay as it's my favourite one and I also appear as Skarlet because I was very excited Thelema was going to wear her Kitana costume We recorded this at El Retiro in Madrid during a freezing cold but beautiful day. It came out an amazing video. I'm so happy and grateful I could be part of this. Hope you like it.
There are more videos to come. He also recorded us wearing our Borderlands 2 costumes at the con days after and a lot more cosplayers! yay!!
Today I want to share with you some of the pictures Hidrico took of my costumes. I really love his style, I think he is a fantastic editor. He creates wonderful images, gives them a special enviroment and aesthetics. I just wanted to show you some of our "before and after" pictures so you can see our work as cosmakers and his work as photographer and editor separately ^^
Months ago I entered this contest and the first round is about to finish! I'll be very grateful if you vote for me This is the picture I submitted. You only have to enter this cosplayidol.otakuhouse.com/201… and give it a facebook "like" (or g+, pinterest, twitter...) right over the pic.
I'm so happy! This month I appear on Nintendo Gamer magazine with my OOE and CJ Shanoa costumes. I'm very excited about this because Shanoa (OOE) was my very first costume and I'm very fond of it. It brings me a lot of good memories
We attended the Japan Expo con last weekend for the first time in our life, and we were able to meet Omaru (thanks to . btw, you MUST see her Hilde costume. It's so lovely). He was very kind to us and he recorded us in our Borderlands costumes *__* So check out this fantastic video full of great cosplayers... and us XD (We appear in 0:31)
Here I am, playing again some Mass Effect music. I was planning in recording this music this week and, as the extended cut was realeased, I took the chance to add by ear the parts they've included. I loved this song before, but the new version is very beautiful. Enjoy!
OMG, I just can't believe we made it. Yesterday we attended Expomanga 2012 (one of the most important cons in Spain and the bigger one in Madrid) being part of a 13 members SCV cosplay group. It was a dream come true. SC is one of our favourite games of all time and it was awesome we were able to gather 13 fantastic, nice and hard-working cosplayers on this purpose. We had a fanastic time. It was very hot but we didn't mind. Here you can watch our skit. Enjoy!
We won the 3rd prize!! (Technically we were disqualified because they didn't let perform more than 10 memebers per group. So winning that prize is great and we are vey happy they gave us that recognition).
(Shanoa) as Hilde, (Erikku-kun) as Kilik, as Raphael, as Patroklos, as Elysium, as Phyrra Ω, as Ivy, as Xiba, as Mitsurugi, as Tira, as Leixia, as Viola, as Natsu
After the contest we took a bunch of photos and video. I have to thank very specially Jesús Clares (jesusclares.es/), the photographer, for following us all day long paying attention to us, satisfying our photographic desires XD, taking lots of fantastic pictures. I'll upload them as soon as he send them to us. Personally, I also have to thank all the people that came to talk to us and to congratulate us. Some of them knew us for other costumes, some of them were fans and followers. That kind of gestures were very appreciated and rewarding. They made us feel our effort totally worth it.
And of course, thanks to our cosplay pals. This has been an unforgettable experience!
Yay! Today they gave a DD to my friend and fantastic photographer Hidrico for this picture he took and edited of my Tali'Zorah costume. I'm so happy for him. We had a great time at the studio and he made a fantastic edition work. He absolutely deserves it.
We are so happy. We are going to celebrate it drinking turian brandy, dancing like the techhnoturian and playing some ME3 multiplayer tonight!! Hahaha. In fact, we've been playing almost every night for the last month. But this is gonna be special Keelah'Selai!!
The good news is that Erikku-kun and I are finally living together. Yay!! We are pretty happy with this house and it's gonna be very funny 'cause finally we can make costumes together, no matter the time! We have two rooms for cosplaying: my sewing room and Erikku-kun's workshop.
The thing is that now we have to pay the rent and this is gonna make us make less costumes, but, on the other hand I think they'll be better as we can take more time on each plan and make everything together and hel each other 24 hours a day.
We still haven't got internet conection at home (now I'm writting this from my family's) so maybe you'll see we don't respond to your comments and we don't upload pics. Maybe this situation lasts a month (more or less).
We have a few cosplay plans for this new year we hope we can share with you all Thanks for your patience and have a fantastic 2012!!
