YesStyle: Photoshoot Haul

The haul!

Not everything in this YesStyle haul was used for a photoshoot, but two outfits were (and some may be used for shoots in the future) so I figured I’d call this the Photoshoot haul. On top of any sales going on at the moment, use the code “3PEARLS” to get an additional discount off your entire order! ^_^

Bunny Costume Set from this haul

Onto the reviews!

Tops
  • Wild Cat – Bunny Lingerie Costume Set – ★★★★☆ – My first costume purchase from YesStyle! I’ve always wanted to try wearing a bunny girl costume but never got around to it. With the cheap price of this costume, I figured it was a good time to try! It is high-quality and comes as a full set: bunny suit, ears on a headband, necktie, wrist cuffs, and thigh-high stockings are all included. The reason it’s 4 stars and not 5 stars is I don’t like how it buttons under the crotch. I assume they designed it this way (like a bodysuit) so it’s easy to go to the bathroom, but the buttons are uncomfortable.
  • FlorSwallow – Wings Detail Knee High Socks – ★★★★★ – Such cute socks!! I love the wings on these knee high socks.
  • 80PERCENT – Cherry Print Lace Trim Spaghetti Strap Mini Bodycon Dress – ★★★★☆ – This dress is super stretchy and really cute! It’s shorter than I expected though. It’s really a MINI dress. I haven’t worn it outside yet, just for a photoshoot. I will probably only wear this dress at home since it’s too short for my comfort level.
As you can see, the Cherry Print Dress is really short.

  • chuu – Pleated Mini Skirt – ★★★★★ – This skirt is so comfy and cute! I love pleated skirts. The size chart is accurate, which was a relief. The items I have from Chuu are super high quality.
  • Oranda – Lace-Up Hot Jeans (Shorts) – ★★★★☆ – These are cute and nice quality but run small. The size chart isn’t totally accurate. I had to suck in my belly to zip and button it up; if you buy this, I’d recommend you go up one size from what it says on the size chart if you want to be comfortable. I haven’t worn these yet because they’re too tight to wear comfortably. 😦

[Flashback Friday] Big Apple Comic Con

Have you ever been to Big Apple Comic Con? It’s a New York City convention that was founded by Michael “Mike Carbo” Carbonaro back in 1995.

I can’t believe this con is this weekend! It’s happening so soon… I thought I had plenty of time but I’m still not sure what to cosplay and/or wear. I have great memories from this con last year…

Mangaka Toshio Maeda

From meeting Toshio Maeda to moderating a panel with Lua Stardust to watching the cosplay contest, Saturday was a busy but fun day!

The con is centrally location near Penn Station, so transportation is easy (trains, subways, etc.). You can also easily find public places outside to do photoshoots at, and there’s plenty of great food options in walking distance from the con.

Click here to see photos from my Saturday shoot last year! (I still need to upload the rest of the photos… my backlog is insane, oops.)

And at every con in NYC, there’s gotta be at least one Spider-Man cosplayer!

I have no idea who the Spider-Man cosplayer in the above picture was, but he was epic and I’m glad he agreed to a quick photo with me! Spider-Man is still one of my all-time fave Marvel characters (ever since I read the Amazing Spider-Man as a teenager!). 

You may have noticed my [Flashback Fridays] tag… I’m thinking of starting a new Flashback Fridays series where I write flashbacks to events or memories of the past. Do you like to reminisce? I love taking photos because if I don’t have photographic proof, I wonder if things never happened and they were simple dreams or made up in my imagination…

Click here to view a throwback to my first time at BACC (back in 2017!). It’s a gothic lolita look featuring my first lolita dress ever (a really old Bodyline JSK I got in high school).

If you’ll be at BACC tomorrow or Sunday, come say hi!

Photowalk: Happy Holidays from Deku (BNHA Cosplay)

Hi everyone! Happy Holidays! And Merry Christmas to those who celebrate. My family doesn’t celebrate Christmas, so December 25 doesn’t feel any different than yesterday. But I figured this would be a perfect time to share photos from our holiday-themed winter photowalk in NYC!

Some of you may remember my blog post last year about Instameets. This photowalk was an Instameet too — I was invited to join the group by one of my friends, and to organize the photowalk, everyone conversed via Instagram group direct message.

For the photowalk, I decided to do an ugly Christmas sweater outfit as my first-ever Deku cosplay! I have cosplayed Ochako from Boku no Hero Academia, but I’d never cosplayed Midoriya Izuku yet. He’s so cute, and I thought his hair color was perfect for the holiday season (it reminds me of a Christmas tree).

It was freezing cold that day, so I should have worn extra layers under my costume. I could have gotten away with it too, but it didn’t occur to me in my rush to get dressed that morning. I went to meet the group at Bryant Park, but they had already left that spot by the time I got there. It’s a photowalk and not photo-stay-at-the-same-spot, after all. >w< At least I got to see the pretty Christmas tree briefly in Bryant Park! It was super crowded there though.

While I was in Bryant Park trying to figure out where to go, I used some holiday present ribbons (red and white striped, green) to wrap around my legs. I figured if I was wearing such an ugly Christmas sweater and a gift box on my head, I might as well turn my legs into Christmas presents too.

Luckily, someone texted me where they were headed to so I was able to meet them near the Rockefeller Center area of Manhattan. We had a good-sized group of both photographers and models! Some were in cosplay and some were doing Christmas fashion (or technically they could be in femme! Santa Claus cosplay or sexy Mrs. Claus cosplay?). The below three photos were taken by Ismael Ordonez. 

I loved the backdrops of giant ornaments and giant Christmas lights! So colorful and fun.

The photowalk continued on into dinnertime, but I left before dinner to commute back home. I like the flexibility of a photowalk, but I don’t think I’ll do another photowalk this winter. It’s so cold. I could see my breath the entire time, was mostly shivering, and had a runny nose from the cold weather. It also rained a bit that day!

I just realized my past Instameets were during cold weather too… I really need to check out an Instameet/photowalk during spring and/or summer! Have you ever been to an Instameet or photowalk?

And special shoutout to my friend Bambi who went to the photowalk with me and was kind enough to help me carry my winter jacket (not seen in the photos) and my bag. The baggy red sweater and scarf I was wearing on top of my ugly Xmas sweater were borrowed from her.

Wishing everyone a happy holiday season filled with joy, and a happy and healthy New Year! ❤ One of my goals for 2019 is to blog more regularly, so hopefully you’ll see me here more often too.
