So I'm back from GoldNova. Had an absolutely amazing time. Took second place in the Madman National Cosplay Comp and I am so happy. Had an awesome time hanging out with everyone and just general cosplay shennanigains. Didn't get many photos take so their won't be an influx of new photos. It was more just about chilling out and having fun with my friends. With all the stress the last few weeks it was really lovely just to have a quite one. Ended up wearing young Jonathan Joestar on the Sunday which though not many people recognised I forgot how amazing it is to have a cosplay with pockets. 

Now it's onwards and upwards with trying to finish Nui for Expo. Also working through some commissions so I have enough money to even attend expo :P But overall Expo will mainly be rewears! Not sure what ones though >_<.

So my full name is Victoria but thats a little too formal for me so my friends call me Ria for short. I love to cosplay and and a very impatient cosplayer so I like to get lots of cosplays finished. My waiting list for cosplays I would love to do is longer than my arm but I'd like to think that my skills have improved over the time I've been cosplaying. I think though the fact I have a couple of battlesuits lined up is a a good sign of improvement.

My main cosplay inspirations are Metal Gear Solid, Detective Conan and anything and everything by Clamp.

If your not familiar with the above you should definatly check them out :D

When I'm not frantically making cosplays I enjoy playing video games, watching anime and reading manga. I'm also hoping to restart martial arts at some point as I throughly enjoyed that back in the day. I also play airsoft but that is on hold atm as it is illegal in Australia but I am part of a MLP themed team and my weapon of choice is the Desert Eagle (blatently because Meryl Silverburgh is my favourite character ever :D)

Feel free to drop me a PM as I always love to chat and always happy to help others with their cosplay. Cosplay is about sharing so feel free to ask anything :D

Hi!  I was browsing, and saw you have pics posted for a Lirael cosplay on the Cosplay Island site.  Are you still working on this?  I haven't seen a solid Lirael yet, and it would be AMAZING!  I did a cosplay for Sabriel last year.  The keys on the surcoat were the hardest even with spreading it out over 6 months, but they came out really nicely if you want any tips for the Lirael surcoat.  Good luck!

I am. Myself and :iconfrederica-la-noir: is working on Sabriel. We were hoping to have them ready for Ayacon (in 2 weeks) but due to other con commitments we probably won't and are hoping to have them done before September instead. I love the keys on your surcoat and have actually used images of your surcoat as reference for my own. But any tips will be hugely welcomed. I have started the embroidery but as you know it's a very slow process :S

Nice!  I'd say the most helpful thing was to make the project portable.  Since it takes so long, it helps to bring it with you if you know you'll have extra tim somewhere.  Also, use a stencil when placing your keys.  Its so important to keep the spacing even.  Good luck!

And thank you also for taking the time to drop me a message :) It's always good meet other MGS fans :D

I would love to see your panel and meeting Hayter would be a dream but unfortunately any american con is out of the budget for this year. I'm too poor :P But hope your panel goes well :D
