Cosplay Year 2016

Soon another year has passed us by and the next one 2017, is ready to step in as soon as the clock hits midnight. I can't believe that 2016 is in the books of history now! It felt like it just started! Man, time sure flies by and here I am, at home, trying to convince my brain that 2017 is starting tonight, while my brain denies the whole year change completely, böh. Anyway, 2016 has been my calmest cosplay year so far and this is because I simply put my beloved hobby a bit to the side, while focusing heavily on something much bigger, namely life itself. I'm glad I did, I have advanced a lot in my life and I'm ready to go wherever Faith takes me next. When it comes to cosplay progress, I can honestly say that I haven't got jackshit done during the year, save for ordering a costume online and getting one as a gift from a good friend's mom. Yeah, I know, super creative year right? Wow, much creativity, such work, wow *insert doge face here*

Anyway, I hope that this break from cosplay and cons will help me enjoy the coming conventions a bit more and maybe, just maybe, I can try out something new and find the reason behind my long-lost con hype. Oh and I can't wait for spring and summer to come! I look forward to continue on that green clad hero of time. Yes, you read it right, I haven't forgotten about Link. I mean, dammit! How can I forget about him when a specific pile of green fabric keeps haunting me in my dreams saying "Finish me~" over and over again, lol. One day Link, one day, I promise. Before moving on, I want to thank my friends and peeps both old and new, who have spent time with me during this year's cons. Thanks everyone for your company! ^w^

This year I have been to the following cons:

Närcon Vinter 2016 - Linköping, Sweden
Cosvision 2016 - Hämeenlinna, Finland
Kummacon 2016 - Oulu, Finland
Tracon 11 - Tampere, Finland
Kitacon 8 - Kemi, Finland

Here is what I have cosplayed during the year:

Happy New Year 2017!

Christmas 2016 Give-away!

- Please read everything before commenting! - 

Merry Christmas everyone.

Now when December the 24th is here it's time for this cosplay blog's next give-away! I have thought about this give-away for a while, since I started to plan it somewhere back in September or so. It's been a while since my last give-away and even if I'm far from being that jolly Christmas person myself, I have always genuinely enjoyed the act of giving - no matter the time of the year. Really. One of the best feelings I have ever felt, is the one you feel when you by "chance" find that one gift that you just know that person x will love (when person x has, for example, been helping you throughout the year) and the feeling you get, when you get it for them and see their honest happiness of receiving it. Hnnngh! This is a reaction that I treasure a lot and one that I even go back to re-live every now and then, if that says something to someone. It's a moment's reaction that has an everlasting, positive impact on me emotionally. This is what I love about the act of giving when it's done right and honestly. Anyone know the feeling? So yeah, no matter how much I Grinch (hihi) at Christmas every darn year, I enjoy making my friends happy and people who matter to me in some way, this includes my readers and followers because you peeps matter to me. Without you guys, this blog would have been dead a loong time ago. It makes me happy to know that someone out there actually reads whatever shit I throw up here about my cosplay life every now and then, so really... thank you guys for all your support and for being with me! ^w^

So what have I hid in my sleeve for this year's Christmas give-away? Nothing less than a pair of lenses and said pair up for grabs is the Beaucon Vibrant Match Gray!

Photographer: Shiro Samurai



What the lenses look like and yes, they are light gray.
These lenses have plano prescription, authentic, unopened and bought from the site Honeycolor.com. A lens case will be included as well.

Now those interested of you probably wonder what you need to do to participate, right? It's super easy! First off, to participate in this give-away you have to be one of my public followers (current 53) and drop a comment below with your e-mail address, so that I can contact you if you happen to be the lucky winner. The winner will be choosen randomly, so everyone has the same chance to win! If there is some type of posts that you enjoy more or a specific cosplay (that I currently have) that you'd like to see more photos of, for example, let me know! I'd love to hear what you guys enjoy when reading my blog! I'm also open for serious cosplay suggestions, if someone has them and if given, only male characters please! Unless you're fine with me doing a genderbend of a suggested female character.

Now when we're nearing the end of this post and before I start the give-away timer, I also want to mention one last thing. Since I am the one who is paying for the shipping costs in this give-away, I'm sorry to say but there will be a country restriction to where I can send the prize. This time only followers from these countries can participate:

~ Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Germany and France ~

This give-away will be running from 24th December to 31st January and the winner will be announced at 1st February.

That's it for now and good luck to everyone! Feel free to spread the word around to your friends and why not, other geeks? :)
