Cosplay made by me (Melfina from Outlaw Star) and worn by me

Yeah soooo.... I've done nostalgia cosplay again this year.
The fandom is still somehow alive, which surprised me.

Unfortunately, updates will be few and far between. I have not had a decent night's sleep in months and I have a lot on my plate right now. I'm also usually working overtime and have been in the middle of moving. Internet has been/is iffy until things get worked out, as you may have noticed. Hope you're all doing well out there.

You look exactly like her! I love her character and how she managed to change Gene into a real man.

Ah, Toonami. I remember coming home from high school to watch "Outlaw Star" back in '01, which was actually my favorite television show on that channel. I must confess that the main reason as to why I watched it was because of Melfina. I was hoping that there would be a second season advancing the adventures of Gene and friends, but alas, I guess it wasn't to be. Nevertheless, I was quite satisfied when I finally received the DVD boxed-set for Christmas the following year. Very beautiful cosplay, by the way! :)

If I were to sing the song "Hiru No Tsuki" could I use this picture in the video? I would credit back to you of course. ^_^ If not, I understand. Cheers! Great cosplay! *3*

Looks good, you never fail to impress. I remember thinking a couple years ago at the time of your KOS-MOS cosplay that blue really becomes you well, and Melfina here only proves it further... and the expression on your face in this shot is entirely sublime. :heart:

I actually came here now after a six-page cosplay feature in Norway's leading business paper DN today made me think of you. Don't get me wrong, you weren't mentioned, I just automatically thought of you when reading the story - cosplay is a rare theme here in mainstream media, and some of your work has always been and will likely remain among the best I've ever seen. The story only really focused on one cosplayer from over here named Jenni Källberg ( [link] ) whom you may or may not have heard of - she was poster girl for the Euro release of Metroid. If you want to check out her various Samus suits for instancee there are lots of pictures of them if you scroll down her Pixelninja website that I linked to there, including hundreds just from the making of the outfits under "progress" for each.

Anyhow, I hope life treats you kind. Get enough sleep, and try not breaking your back working too much. If the moving your mentioning involves heading east with your sister I hope that works out smoothly for you all. If it's elsewhere too of course (...not back to Japan though right now though, I would presume, what with everything that's happened over there recentely? ) Either way, be safe and take good care of yourself.


Best wishes from up north,

Ah yes I know that cosplayer. She's amazing. I thought she was from Sweden? I often get my information wrong though.

I should have taken everyone's advice to get enough sleep because now I have bronchitis. It's my own damn fault honestly. But I'm fighting the good fight.

My move does not involve my sister but it's still something I'm quite happy with. :)

Best wishes to you too!
F72 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2011
You're absolutely right Pixelninja is Swedish (from Stockholm), I just meant "over here" as in her being a fellow Scandinavian - reckoned people not having heard of her might be curious, since she talked in that interview about how she hadn't been able to cosplay in America nor in Japan yet.

Get well soon :hug: and never forget what a certain doctor once said about fighting that good fight as you call it:

"I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!"
~ Dr. Seuss
