This cosplay was my first Love Live! cos, and also the first that I had bought off the internet. I had no access to a sewing machine in Japan, and I wasn’t going to go buy a machine when I was only going to be there for a year… so here we go. The shoot itself happened when I came back to Sydney though.
This was also suggested to me by the friend who introduced me to Love Live!, so hope I did it justice ahaha
I really got into Love Live! while I was on exchange in Japan, so naturally, Love Live! cosplays resulted haha
‘Sunny Day Song’ is one of the insert songs featured in the Love Live! movie, and the song is so fun and the costumes so vibrant, doing the shoot was amazing fun!
I love Vocaloid to bits, and the moment I saw SeeU’s character design, I knew I had to cosplay her at some point because she had speakers for her cat ears. The actual making of the cosplay didn’t actually take that long, because her design is pretty simple. Posing however… need to practice more cute poses!
This was something I wanted to do for fun, without needing any prep or whatsoever~ because what anime fan hasn’t wanted to walk around in a Japanese seifuku at some point in their lives before? And when a friend gets a uniform as a birthday present… photoshoots need to happen!
This was the first shoot that all of us had ever been on. Apart from trekking to the Shire to find sand dunes at Cronulla and giving up halfway, and not really knowing what to do half of the time… I think it turned out pretty well~ Just look at all our intense stares!
