A geek and proud of it.
Artist | Hobbyist | Artisan Crafts
United Kingdom
Name's Light-Sensei I'm a London based 18 year old cosplayer, who at the moment is trying to pursue a career in astrophysics while trying to maintain a healthy social life. I have an unhealthy addiction to tea, fruitcake and Zelda.

I've been cosplaying and attending conventions since 2009, my first being Light Yagami from Death Note at the London MCM Expo but I only really took it more seriously in 2012. I try and make most of my costumes to the best of my ability and I'm always trying to achieve an accurate looking costume while adding my own little twists.

I get all my inspiration for cosplay from my love of video games, my favourite being The Legend Of Zelda, which most of my costumes are from. My dream is to make every single Princess Zelda costume. Going to take me a while but I'm determined to get there.

I'm also into writing, drawing and photography. I'm the proud author of the Zelda fanfic Hidden Heroes check it out here: fav.me/d54yzi7 which stemmed from RP-ing with the wonderful :icontoonprincesszeldafan:
I believe that a person can only be beautiful on the outside if they are first beautiful on the inside. If this is not the case then one cannot be beautiful no matter how much makeup you put on...

Hi guys, 
Happy March!! Can't believe we're already into the third month of 2015 and this is the first journal I've posted. Hope 2015 has been treating you all well. Also a big hello to all my new followers!
 
I'm extremely sorry for not being as active on deviantart as I have been on my other social media sites. Shamefully the quick uploading procedure on the other sites have been more appealing. 

Onto a slightly happier note, I've started making my 2015 costumes but only little parts. I've taken castings of my ears so i can start making my own elf ears. I've also finally gotten all the materials in for remaking my Skyward Sword Zelda. Since my last journal I've added two more costumes to my definite list. 

My 2015 costumes are now 
:bulletgreen:Tauriel 
:bulletgreen:Legolas (commission)
:bulletgreen:Merida (commission) 
:bulletgreen:Skyloft Zelda (remake)
:bulletgreen:Goddess Zelda (remake) 
:bulletgreen:Casual Skyward Sword Zelda- for the Symphony of the Goddesses in April 
:bulletgreen:Ocarina of Time Zelda- to be finished in 2016
:bulletgreen:Secret LoZ cosplay- To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda series I'm going to be dedicating next year to Zelda costumes. This costume, for once, won't be Princess Zelda. Hopefully I'll give you guys some clues soon. 

Like I've mentioned before I won't be starting the bulk of these costumes until May and I'll be starting with Tauriel, Legolas and Merid. 

On an even happier note, I've finally settled on a convention schedule for 2015:

Confirmed Conventions:
:bulletgreen:22-24th May- London MCM Comic Con
:bulletgreen:4-5th July- London Anime and gaming con 
:bulletgreen:TBA- October- London MCM Comic Con
:bulletgreen:27th-29th November- Hyper Japan Christmas Market

Possible conventions: 
:bulletgreen:26th-27th September- Scotland MCM Comic con 

Hidden Heroes is coming along slowly- I'm trying to get at least 100 words written a day, so even though I'm not making a huge amount of progress, I'm still making some progress.

Skyward Sword Zelda REVAMP WIP 1 by Light-Sensei
Skyward Sword Zelda REVAMP WIP 1
Started work on revamping both my skyward sword outfits plus started on a more casual Skyloft Zelda for the Symphony of the Goddesses in April. Currently I'm just doubling the thickness of the wig by sewing in wefts. This is the wig with just one pack of wefts. Hoping to add the second pack in the next days. After that I can start styling the bangs and cutting the fringe. Considering washing the wig in fabric softener to reduce the shine.  

Wig is an Alex in Strawberry blonde from Coscraft.

Ear Casting WIP 1 by Light-Sensei
Ear Casting WIP 1
Started up my WIP montages again. 

This year I'm taking my cosplay up a notch, while saving a bit of money, by casting my own elf ears. Taking the initial cast is probably one of the strangest things I've done and it's not entirely unpleasant. I'm making gelatin ears instead of the usual latex ears. 

This is a bit of a trial and error process but here's how I've done the first few stages: 

From left to right:

An extra pair of hands, swimming caps and vaseline are your best friends in this process- be generous with the amount of vaseline you put around the cup. Always plug your ears before taking the cast- it's not healthy to get any alginate in your ear. I found that using 75g of alginate powder works the best- even though the mould seems a little big. 

I found that the molds tend to weep a bit just after being cast so I suggest leaving them on some tissue and card overnight to dry, although don't let them dry out completely- we need them to be somewhat felxible for the next few steps. 

I'm using Gedeo light plaster for my ear positives. If you're having trouble sealing the bottom of the molds then I suggest wrapping cling film underneath it and securing it with tape. 

Despite the plaster saying it'll only take an hour and a half to dry, I'm going to leave mine a week. I did try and remove an ear after the stated time but it was extremely crumbly and fell apart. Hopefully after a week or so the positives should've set. I haven't touched mine for about four weeks now. I'll be checking up on them in just over a week.

Honour by Light-Sensei
Honour
Last of the Lucina set- for now at least. The falchion itself is one of the biggest props I've ever made in my 5 years of cosplaying, it's a slightly scaled down model from the original measurements and is as tall as my shoulder when upright.

Costume, props and model: Light-Sensei
