Things are looking very bright for me.
I joined the Japan Ireland Association -www.ija.ie/ which is an organisation for people meeting business contacts and to network. I joined a few of the members for a lovely walk in Powerscourt House -powerscourt.com/house which is a beautiful, stunning house up near the Dublin Mountains. I would love to do a Saber Lily photoshoot there. It was nice chatting to the members and telling them about cosplay and my art. I also attended Japanese born artist Shota Kotake who has been living in Dublin for a decade art exhibition and opening launch last week. His art is about how he sees Irish culture through his own eyes as a Japanese person. His work is quite manga influenced and I find it really interesting the Irish-Japanese cultural link. Please have a look at his art on his DA page - shotakotake.deviantart.com/. Shota Kotake will be a guest at Nomcon - nom-con.net/ Anime, Manga convention in August. My friend and I decided to attend the exhibition in cosplay.
Thanks to my good friend and Nora my Haru cosplay for the Cat Returns for the Family Film Festival, Irish. Film. Institute -www.ifi.ie/famfest2014 is just about finished. I am going to get last minute bits in town tomorrow. I will be taking part in a promotional photoshoot next week to promote the festival. It is good to get the publicity.
Earlier in the week I was invited to a celebration ceremony for the success of the Japanese Film Festival in Ireland. I can foresee things getting brighter and more exciting here in terms of anime.
On a side note I really think it is cool Cosplayer Cristina known as Meepy-Gal done this “Get in the Robot - Your Guide to Making Plugsuits.” For years I wanted to try tackle the Evangelion plugsuit but never really knew where to begin therefore this guide was very helpful for me. It doesn't just tell you how to make a plugsuit but gives you useful advice and asks should you even try to make it and touches on practical issues. You can purchase a copy here - gumroad.com/l/getintherobot
I ordered a few nice outfits for cosplays and shoots.
Have a nice weekend.x

I like photography, anime, exchanging Irish culture, Japan, travelling and anything creative. Motivation, drive and ambitions will get me to where I want to be! I have a postgraduate Diploma in Cultural Event Management and degree in Cultural Studies.
