Dynasty Warriors Xing Cai Heavenly sword : WORKING WITH INSULATION FOAM

^I LOVE RUBBER SHEET a.k.a. EVA FOAM.
But in Japan and most other places out of southeast Asia, this material is not as easily attained...

I decided to try using insulation foam as it was easy to get from my location and was cheap by Japanese standards.

THIS IS NOT A TUTORIAL ON HOW TO MAKE XING CAI'S SWORD.
THIS IS NOT A TUTORIAL ON HOW TO MAKE SWORDS FROM INSULATION FOAM.

Day 2 of World Cosplay Summit 2015 - Championship Performances

We were so tired from yesterday and the heat was so intense that we had so much trouble getting out of bed...
But we managed! Although our schedule did get ruined. haha

I tried to look nice but the heat honestly was too much. I tried and eventually realized that I gave no fooks so... hahahaha
Chesra wins the best dressed award through out our WCS adventure. hahaha

So anyway, we managed to get out of the hotel by lunch because heat or no heat, we were hungry.
The Nishiki Red Carpet parade was happening as we walked outside but the reps were still nowhere to be found.

over at the back, people are crowding over the red carpet,
 waiting for the Nishiki Red Carpet parade to start

World Cosplay Summit 2015 Day 1

^World Cosplay Summit event log!
I know I know, it is already September but I was *cough* busy.

Anyway, it looks like WCS is shaping up to be my only yearly cosplay-related event.
But hey, WCS is one of the biggest and major events in Japan and it so happens to be in Nagoya so I ain't passing up on that.

Day 1 of World Cosplay Summit 2015

Woke up pretty early as I had intended to meet up Chesra and Nikki at our hotel.
They were coming from an overnight bus ride from Tokyo, they were both tired and Japan in summer is a killer.
So I told them, if they wanted to take a bath or something (our hotel check in is at 2pm and it was about 8am) they can come to my mom's house.

They agreed and I picked them up from Kanayama station and we went to mommy's house for breakfast and bit of rest.

WCS is super awesome but Nagoya and summer... errrrrr...

We had intended to stay for only a short while but it has been a long time since we saw each other and summer heat... so we ended up just talking in comfort with the airconditioner on until lunch hahahaha

In front of the Brother show room. Early so no make up faces coz either way
 it was just gonna melt under the summer sun...
