Hello, I'm a little Belgian cosplayer, who previously mostly build model kits (which I still do now and then)
Interests
A few months ago :iconhime-soph: asked me if I was interested in doing a duo for ECG (European Cosplay Gathering).  She proposed Appleseed and I said yes, since yeah it's an oldskool manga by one of ma favourite artists.  We deliberately chose not to take the recent CGI movie renders for our costumes and went with an old Shirow artwork and manga image.
3 months it took us to finish the costumes, where we used the same fabric, armor style and weathering/paint to match ourselves to the best.

And it payed off!  A little over a week ago, we were selected to represent Belgium in 2014 at the ECG Finals at Japan Expo Paris :D

We're back! (since Soph also participated previously as well :) )

I took this opportunity to make a page, www.facebook.com/CycloneXXke.  I was kinda reluctant to it but I think it'll be easier this way.

Hi, it's a lovely dress you made there :)

And yes I was one of the finalists ^^

Where you in London during the finals?

No, I wasn't - I am one of the organizers of the EC partner event here in Serbia, Japanizam, during which we select our finalist. I happen to be the host of the cosplay competition and the focal point for all contacts with the EC staff, so that's why I follow closely what's happening in London even though I cannot go there.

The reason why I cannot attend the EC - and also the reason why our own finalist was unable to participate in this year's finals - is that the Serbian citizens still need UK visas in order to go to London, and the UK authorities have started implementing a stricter migration policy from this year. This is why all the invitation letters from the EC staff, guarantee papers and certificates were not enough to get the UK visa....

Yes, we heard about that, same for one of the Turkish representants.  It's really a shame.
I hope this won't happen again next time, it's obvious that it's just for leisure that you need a visa.
