Cosplay 2012 Reflection

Since I haven't had much chance to sew or cosplay this semester and since it's already November (wow!) my cosplay year of 2012 is coming to a close.  Here's a quick summary of the cosplays I've completed this year:

America (Axis Powers Hetalia) - debuted Taiyou Con 2012
APH America: Land of the Free by OztheNekoMaster

Tsunashi Takuto, Ginga Bishounen (Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto) - debuted Phoenix Comicon 2012
Takuto Tsunashi: Radiance by OztheNekoMaster

Oliver (VOCALOID 3) - debuted Phoenix Comicon 2012
Vocaloid Oliver: To Fly Away by OztheNekoMaster

Ciel Phantomhive, Ciel In Wonderland (Kuroshitsuji OVA) - debuted Anime Expo 2012
Ciel Phantomhive: In Wonderland by OztheNekoMaster

Len Kagamine, Servant of Evil (VOCALOID 2) - debuted Anime Expo 2012
Len Kagamine: I Am Your Servant by OztheNekoMaster

Allen Walker, Crown Clown (D. Gray-Man) - debuted Anime Expo 2012
Allen Walker: Crowned Innocence by OztheNekoMaster
(secret cosplay for 2012)

That's a total of six costumes!  What a busy year for me!  But I'm kind of proud of myself that I was able to accomplish all that.  And I have to admit, I think I've improved a lot, too!  Looking at what I was sewing just last year to what I'm sewing now, I think there's a definite improvement.  I hope I can keep progressing into the new year!  As far as awards/honors/features are concerned, this is what we, BanzaiProductions have accomplished:

Best In Show: Taiyou Con 2012 masquerade
Cosmode AX 2012 coverage: Servant of Evil and Daughter of Evil
Featured in the following cosplay videos:………
Best Technical Performance: Saboten 2012 masquerade

Now that I think about it, 2012 was a big year.  There were times when it got a bit busy, yes...and even very, very stressful.  But as they say, "you reap what you sew."  Hopefully 2013 will be just as good, if not, better with better memories with everyone and even more times of fun!  Speaking of are my cosplay plans of 2013!

Haha! I LOVE the journal skin, Oz! XD I had to backspace this message so many times and add another name to the list of characters I was looking forward to seeing. So I'll save time and just say, I'm looking forward to ALL of your new cosplays! Especially your Len Kagamine- Append version, that looks awesome and I know you'll make it look even better in real life. Good luck!
