Hello peeps! Seeing as we won't have any progress of new costumes for the next months because of school, we thought we would share with you guys, some of our progress on our "Granadp Espada" adventure! 

Hairpiece for Yoshus character, with beautiful roses she made!
 Here you see our elements in progress! We had always wanted to try and dye something, and finally we had the chance as we decided that we wanted to make these silk... veil thingies, to act as water and fire in our act. We went and got the fabric and got started with the dyeing! Or actually Samie did, and then halfway trough the first one called Yoshu for help x'D We tried to do a gradient coloring on both of them, most visible on the fire piece! It was a fun experience, and we are sure to give it a go another time :)!

 In our act we had the book of four elements, and for did Samie made the pages. One of them is actually written seriously and makes sense, were as all the others have quotes from our friends, movies or songs. Oh and lots of statements like "David Tennant is hot". Cause seriously, you need to have that in your act somehow! 

The look of the pages was achieved by adding water to them first, smudge it all over and then with a brush, apply coffee to it all and play round with it. This gives the pages a torn and old look! Aaaand makes it smell like coffee forever. 

 This is the jewelry that goes on Yoshus dress in the front. It took some time to figure out how we wanted to make this, so it looked as much as the picture as possible, but in the end we really like the result!
It goes on the dress with some small "hooks" (not sure what they are called in English xD) And doesn't really weigh anything :D

And then a single picture of one of the roses, again from Yoshus dress XD All the ribbons that has stripes on both of our dresses, are made of multiple ribbons put together by hand ^^ Including Samies hat and big ass bow xD 

So sorry this isn't the most exciting post, we have figured out some of the costumes for Japan and can't wait to get started in January! 

See you soon, hopefully!

Wow, so yaerh... Didn't think we would ever get to write this, but: 
Still can't believe it... (Look at us, so derpy and confused!)

But yaerh, we will start this blog with a little introduction to who we are! 

HEJ. I am.. the one in the red dress. And I don't really know what to write here... Guess I could start with the boring facts!
My real name is Maria, but I'm mostly known as Samie in the crazy cosplay world - so you could call me that! 
I've been cosplaying for 3 years, and have performed in cosplay 8 times :)
I'm looking sooo much forward to meeting all of the awesome teams for this year and to travel to Japan!
Hope we will make Denmark proud!

Hello people~
My name is Josefine, better known as Yoshu or Yoshusheep~ I’m 20 years old and have studies at the university in Copenhagen. I have been cosplaying since J-popcon 2007. I’ve been making acts together with Samie since 2009 and she is so brilliant, she gets the greatest ideas for all our acts and just finds new ways to perform – I’m just trying to follow her lead xD Right now this is still so new for me but I’m so happy that Samie and I got chosen to be team Denmark 2012 and for getting this chance to meet other international cosplayers from all the world!

So this is our first little entry, we hope that we will actually get to use this blog!

Until next time, Allonsy~
