"I'VE GOT 99 PROBLEMS BUT A PIECE AIN'T ONE"
Hi I'm Z and I enjoy slaving over my sewing machine for several months in order to make my favourite characters come to life. (:

I am an 19 year old cosplayer from Australia.
I graduated high school in 2012, and am now studying Conservation and Wildlife Biology at uni.

I attend about 3 or 4 conventions per year (there aren't a lot of cons where I live!)
I have only just started cosplaying, so I'm not very good yet, but I try haha!
I make my own costumes, either from scratch or through modification.

Ultimate Cosplay Achievement Checklist:
:bulletgreen: Host a cosplay panel at a convention
:bulletgreen: Be featured in a professional cosplay video on youtube
:bulletgreen: Win a cosplay competition with a really great skit
:bulletgreen: Win a Perth Madman National Cosplay Competition heat
:bulletgreen: Place in the Australian Madman National Cosplay Competition
:bulletgreen: Go to:
:bulletred: Katsucon
:bulletred: Dragoncon
:bulletred: Colossalcon
:bulletred: SanDiego ComicCon

My inspiration comes from the amazing deviants on here, especially:

Woo have a journal!
As always, I'm more active on facebook: www.facebook.com/KaizokiruCosp…
Loads of wips and random thoughts on there.

Towards the end of last year, I did quite a few cosplays, but a lot of them ended up unfinished. I'll be busy with uni and work this year, I'm saving to go travelling in the next few years. Still, hopefully I'll manage to get around to finishing and shooting some of those.

To finish:
:bulletpurple: Howl from HMC
:bulletpurple: Absalom from One Piece
:bulletpurple: Ros from Senyu

Cosplays to photoshoot (I should really get on top of this):
:bulletpurple: Sweet JP from Redline
:bulletpurple: Naruto
:bulletpurple: Rob Lucci from One Piece
:bulletpurple: Haku from Spirited Away
:bulletpurple: Edward Elric from FMA

I have completed one cosplay this year, The Little Prince, and have organised a super special shoot for the end of next month, so that'll be pretty fun. There are a couple of cons coming up in the next few months, but I'm not sure how many I'll be able to make. I'll see.

Thanks for your support!!
'til next time, Z.

Iceburg - Responsibilties by Kaizokiru
Iceburg - Responsibilties
Had a really great photoshoot of Teenage! Iceburg in December!! (Finally!! The cosplay has been done since March hahah!!)
Man, I fell in love with this character straight away, Iceburg is so great. Definitely one of my favourite minor characters in One Piece.
He's amazing. So good to get into his character.

As for the making of this cosplay, it was super simple and didn't require a great deal of skill. The pants were just a pair of chinos I already owned (I had a more accurate pair of pants before, but I think we accidently donated them to charity?? haha!). The singlet was bought and modified by re-hemming the bottom and painting the white on. The bandana was just squares of white fabric sewn together. I had to cut and style the wig a bit, but it wasn't too hard. The hammer was literally made from glueing EVA foam together, covering in masking tape, then painting. :) So professional haha! Any questions, just ask!!

Photo and editing thanks to the amazing P.Elizabeth Photography (www.facebook.com/P.ElizabethPh…)
And many thanks to :iconminimadhatter: for helping out at the shoot!! :D

Ahh no worries, I saw your Severus cosplay featured on facebook I think it was? and just had to watch you, you're so good!! (Also, my friend thought it was ironic that such a fantastic Snape cosplayer was named James :XD: haha!)
Thankyou  so much for your encouragement, hopefully one day I can travel over east and meet you! :D
