Feitan - Light 'em Up by TheGothica
Feitan - Light 'em Up
«A constellation of tears on your lashes
Burn everything you love, then burn the ashes
In the end everything collides
My childhood spat back out the monster that you see
My songs know what you did in the dark

So light 'em up»
My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark by Fall Out Boy

About time I showed you a new cosplay photo, a new costume and FINALLY posting something of this! I've been wanting to do this version of Feitan for years and some months ago the chance appeared so I went for it. Even if I had a lot of rough moments while wearing this costume, I really loved doing it and wearing it.

I've done Feitan before and never felt good about it but this costume made me feel really good in his skin, which gives me strenght to do some more of his versions. Pain Packer is still in my list for this year and hopefully I can fulfill yet another cosplay dream by doing it! Maybe I'll work with real fire then!

Split Personality by TheGothica
Split Personality
Finally updating my dA! I'm really sorry for being so away but college finals were killing me and there was nothing I could do. I now have more free time for both photography and cosplay so hopefully I will update more often. Hopefully.

Either way, here is one of my most recent photos. Ever since I started college I've seriously gotten into self-portraits so I'm sure there will be more of this in the future! This one is possibly one of my favourites so far :heart: For the most curious, the photo basically talks about me and what I call my 'other side'.

Photographed with a Canon 600D, 18-55mm lens. The light is a normal house lamp. No studio or flash, made at home (:

Hi everyone! My name's Joana and I'm a Photographer and Cosplayer ♥

One of my big passions is Photography. I've always seen it as something that gives me freedom and the chance to show a part of myself to others. Photography has been my hobby and my friend for many years and I can't imagine my life without it. I'm currently in college studying professional Photography, so I can take this passion to a professional level.

I've been cosplaying since 2010, an hobby that has taken a huge part of my life. It has changed me completely and given me many things I didn't have. I would like to someday take this passion that I have for Cosplay to a professional level as well. I realise it's going to be hard, but I can't give up without trying!

Feel free to talk to me and leave a comment. Any feedback is always welcome!

UPDATES (finally!)

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 3, 2013, 9:19 AM
Hi everyone! 

I'm finally making an update journal in here! I've been neglecting DeviantArt and I apologize for that. It's just that everything has been insane lately (like usual) and there hasn't been much time for anything else.

So I finished my finals last week and everything went well. I'm currently waiting for my grades to come out. 

Have a photo of me I recenly posted here:

:bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite: COSPLAY :bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite:

I've been neglecting my Cosplay Blog (and my normal blog) as well, so there hasn't been anything new for the past few weeks ; ;

I will be making at least 1 new post about a new cosplay that I wore at Anicomics last May and I'll be posting photos here as well!

I am also currently working on a new costume: Galaxy, an OC from my newest book. It's going pretty well even though I haven't done much yet. I hope to finish it still this month!

On the same topic, I'll possibly be having a group cosplay this Summer and I'm super excited because it's from one of my fav animes ever *O* 

I'll be pairing with :iconfiaziinha483: and doing both costumes! :heart:


I really want to try and post more frequently here! I fell like even though I have my blogs I should update this journal. So I will try to!

I hope everything's fine with you guys! Thank you for reading :heart:
