^I debuted my Haruhi cosplay back in 2009.
Looking back, I was never satisfied with how I portrayed her.
I was unhappy with my noobish skills but I knew that someday, I would learn all the skills I need to make good cosplays.

Here's a look at how my early Haruhi cosplay was.

I really liked Haruhi, she is strong, she is passionate and she is a go-getter. I like how eccentric she is, plus in a somehow weird way-she turns out to be a god of some sort XD
I wish I was as athletic as she is though...

Not much changed since I last wore this costume.
Everything is basically the same but I did make some improvements:
-I styled the wig's bangs but I still used the same wig as before
-I now have contact lens on
-now has better make up XDD
-made the skirt shorter and the top fits better
-more props (?)
-tried my best to channel Haruhi rather than just pose

Since, I had waited so long for a proper Haruhi shoot, I thought, why not bring the costume to Singapore for AFA?

Yep, the costume went all the way to Singapore just for a photo shoot.
Why? Because I really wanted to do one of my most favorite characters justice so no expense must be spared for this.
To be honest, as I am not moe moe cute, I wanted to make myself stand out as there are a ton of Haruhi Suzumiya cosplayers, trying to come up with ways on how to do this was kinda hard, in the end, I settled with utilizing props and trying to convey Haruhi as best as I can (in the photos at least).

I tried several faces / moods to show the different sides of my beloved alien loving, esper seeking, time traveler hunting girl.
