J-Popcon is coming up!

Woooooooow I'm so behind with posts on here!
죄송합니다 ㅠㅠ

I recently received a new item I was going to prepare a review on and a lighter bbcream because, apparently, my skin turns even whiter during the winter. I'm already almost paper white. How is that even possible?! ლ(‘◉⌓◉’ლ)

So I was using the new item and was going to do so for a week before I'd write my review. My skin has been a little bad the past few days due to ... I guess stress? so, being the unpredictable person I am when I have too many things to keep track of, I used a facemask and thus ruined my little don't-do-anything-out-of-the-ordinary-while-trying-new-products plan.

I'm going to start over with the product and make a review, that's a promise!
Until then, I figured I might as well let you all know why I'm so stressy-stressy.

This time it's completely self-inflicted! 
You see, in my post about my New Year Resolutions for this year, I wrote that I wanted to attend at least 3 cosplay conventions this year. One of the three I had in mind is coming up in February and since this is actually the largest anime convention we have in Denmark, I really wanted to impress!
Not only did I want to make a new cosplay but also cosplay a character that most people probably wouldn't have thought of already.

I started from the bottom and, since I can't sew for my life, I figured I'd probably need as much time as possible to work on it before February 20th - The day of J-Popcon!

Every day after school and the entire weekend is spent on working on my costume so, for now, I don't have much time to blog. It DOES say cosplay in my blog description so I figured it'd be okay to show you guys my progress so far.
(If you're not into that, come back again soon! I'll make normal blog posts again as soon as the costume is finished)

It still needs a lot of work but.. it's getting there!
I won't tell which character I'm cosplaying yet but I think it's pretty obvious if you've watched the anime that it's from :x

The reason it's taken so long is that we're working without a pattern since I haven't been able to find one with the right shape. Instead we are using another dress of mine from H&M, that we're drawing from and modifying. It takes FOR-E-VER and it's SO complicated, uuugh.
This weekend we're (hopefully!) going to sew on a hat. When I say "we" it's because I'm borrowing my grandmother's sewing machine and because she is helping me out quite a lot - Thanks grandma!

For now we've finished the basic form of the dress. Sleeves and hat are yet to come (plus a bunch of minor modifications). 
 Meanwhile I'm working on the bandage whenever I have a bit of spare time. Yesterday evening I finished the legs and feet!

So... that was my quick post to let you know that I'M NOT DEAD. 
I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as possible~!

Until then, stay safe and happy <3

Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry!

Heeeey~

Sorry for my absence!! ʿ⁽(⁰ ⌂ ⁰;)⁾⁾ʾʾ

I was planning to take a small break over the holidays to just relax and finally enjoy not having do do anything... 
Then I had a friend stay over (which kept me from blogging) until school started and JUST as school started and I was supposed to go back to writing..... I got sick with the most painful throat inflammation that seriously NO painkillers could stop. Eventually I had to surrender and now... I don't have anything to post at the moment... (◞‸◟;) 

Sorry sorry sorry sorry... *Super Junior dancing in the background*

No really! 
I'm truly sorry for the lack of updates!
Sadly, it doesn't seem like I will have time to write anything before the weekend so this post is really just to let you know that I haven't abandoned you all... or died of the plague ♡

I'm waiting for the newest products I ordered to arrive and also considering if I should host my first give away soon. I have no idea how all that works yet sooo... there's something to read up on! 

Other than that, I hope you've had a nice start of the year.
If you are really desperate for something to read you can always go on my personal blog [Click me!] where I made a post about my New Year's resolutions while I still had the energy to go to school.
Did you make any resolutions?
