Things are looking very bright for me. 

I joined the Japan Ireland Association 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 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 - Shota Kotake will be a guest at Nomcon - 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 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 -

I ordered a few nice outfits for cosplays and shoots.

Have a nice weekend.x

Cairdiuil's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
My name is Amy. I go by my cosplay name Cairdiúil.

I am a passionate, cosplayer and keen amateur model who expresses art in photos rather than drawing or painting. I love the modelling and acting part of cosplaying and love making photos interesting for the viewer.

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. I am an Events Organiser specialising in Japanese culture, anime, manga events here in Ireland and worked as a Conference Angel. As well as modelling I also done MC-ing for Dublin Comic Con and for Dublin International Comic Expo and annually for Experience Japan.

Personal Quote
"I am neither false nor fake, I am simply me. I become myself by the instrumentality of the links and relationships between myself and others. I am formed by interaction of others. They create me as I create them. Contact with people and the passage of time change the shape of my heart."
