Check out my fashion videoclip!!!

Hey all,

As you might have seen, there haven’t been new updates or new photos for a while now. No I haven’t quit on cosplaying but I have been extremely busy since November 2012.

With what? Well with my own clothing collection ^___^

As a little girl I’ve always wanted to play in a video clip. But I can’t sing and can’t dance and the only way was to create a clothing collection and make one myself!! Music has always inspired me a lot. It helped me with my cosplay acts, inspiration on many facets and simply always been part of me.

This time I was inspired by the Korean boyband Big Bang with their song ‘Fantastic Baby’. The settings, their clothes, their voices, their movements and simply every aspect of the video clip was just triggering me to remake this with my own style of the clothes.

I asked a friend of mine if any of this was possible and he said it was. So after that being said I started drawing and designing.

After finishing the drawings I ended up in Amsterdam a few times for fabric hunting and ended up in locking myself up for 2 months in my room with draping and sewing.

On the 14th of April the first shots where planned and taken that day. It was hard working but it was all worth it and finally my dream of having my own video clip was coming true thanks to my friends!!!

On the weekend of Animecon (31 May to 2 June) our video was shown on a huge screen in the theater room. As a ‘closing-this-project’ moment I was MC-ing the song at Deshima Sounds where everybody joined up for singing and screaming this song with me <3

This was my big adventure for the last couple of months and I will try to focus both on a new cosplay project and on future projects for my clothing label Casuality.

Curious to the video? Take a look at this awesome stuff at YouTube.

I will put the clothes on sale very soon on my Casuality facebook. Check it out at this link!!!

Abunai 2012

Download the lecture and sound sample here:

Abunai2012-cosplay-acting-lecture

 

Hey all,

This year at Abunai I had a cosplay acting lecture.  It was all about the different competitions, how to put up an act, stagefright and movie/theatre acting.

I had special help in this one and her name is GlaDOS. Yes that’s right. GlaDOS. That mean robot in the game Portal. Why? Because I think that GlaDOs is the perfect example of that insecure little voice telling you everything goes wrong.

Why would I use this in my lecture? Simply because it’s an blah-blah lecture. It’s nothing but me talking and I wanted the people to have some fun as well while listening to me. That’s why I spoke in some sentences and my fiancee turned them into a GlaDOS or turret voice. Since it can be hard to hear what turrets and GlaDOS is saying I used subtitles during the lecture so people could hear and read them at the same time. Since it was all about acting

I kinda wanted this lecture turn into:

  • a lecture (by telling people about things)
  • an act (by using the voices)
  • and a script (by using que points)

I hope you guys liked my panel and if you have any questions or comments you can mail me about them ;)

Cosplay workshops

Aug 30, 2011   //   by KvdHurk   //   Blog  //  No Comments

Hi all,

Some of you have been visiting my cosplay workshops on Abunai and Animecon. On my old website there was a download section where you could read the whole workshop again.

I don’t have a download section anymore but I do have the links of my workshops. All my workshops are written in Dutch but they have enough pictures and links in it to learn from it in any language.

 

Here is a list of my past few workshops:

- Abunai 2011: posing workshop: My appologies for not finishing the complete workshop. I was having a fever and couldn’t finish the text and pdf. But here is the pdf anyway cause there are quite some usefull links in it!! Cosplay workshop posing

-  How does a sewing machine works?: http://megumii.com/Naaimachine%20weetjes.pdf

-  Abunai 2010 How-To-Start-A-Cosplay workshop: http://megumii.com/HOW%20TO%20START%20A%20COSPLAY%20Abunai%202.pdf

-  Animecon fabric workshop: http://megumii.com/Cosplay%20workshop.pdf

 

If there will be more workshops in the feature, I might consider a new download section again. For now I will keep it simple by re-updating this post.
