Daily Cosplay – Batgirl Stephanie Brown V Cosplay

Batgirl Stephanie Brown V Cosplay
Batgirl Stephanie Brown V Cosplay1

I do feel you will also fall in love with her cosplay like me. So, I can’t help but sharing you the Batgirl Stephanie Brown V cosplay done by Aigue-Marine here. This German girl shows us a rich series of stunning cosplay works in her deviantart.com gallery. She is interested in music, singing, acting, fashion and cosplay. Do you also hold interest for movies like Pride & Prejudice, Tristan & Isolde, A Good Year and Midnight in Paris? All of these definitely draw the attention from this pretty cosplay girl. Here, she looks great with the Stephanie Brown cosplay costume. Ideally accenting her femininity, this cosplay theme makes Aigue-Marine seem rather graceful and moderately sexy :P !

Since always I’ve liked to draw… When I was a very little girl I used to draw fanart of the series that was watching in all the notebooks that there were at my house (and I still doing it ) My obsession for Hetalia began in the summer of 2010, when a friend recommended to watch it… And I don’t regret nothing!  It’s so cool! Because of Hetalia I have known really friendly and wonderful people, to those I love and I can call friends… And even though we are thousands of miles away there’s something that always bring us together and will never separate us. In short… I’m a fan of Hetalia to death!

Nationality: American and Spanish

Me(left) Sister(Right) Other sister was camera shy. Also my sisters dog Sandy in the middle.

I am 13 years. now I think i’m too young to be watching this, I think and I really wanted to sign up for this because I am OBSESSED with Hetalia. I have never cosplayed before but I really want to so I can go To AnimeNEXT in June. One day I went to school with Italy’s curl by putting gel on and started talking to my teachers in a Italian accent it was very funny! I have been seeing Hetalia since 2008 because of english subtitles I have really Enjoyed the show! I have been drawing people or Chibi characters for as long as I can remember. I tell my teachers “Hetalia is the future” but just looked at me confused because they don’t know what Hetalia is and I secretly have a mini white flag with me that I made in my pocket . Well that’s enough of me. Here are my recent drawings!

There be Pirates Afoot

We had a bunch of fun with the Ninjas the last time we posted. We are now on to the PIRATES!

Avast Ye Maties and climb aboard for a water filled adventure. We are of course going to talk about the sensation known as One Piece. Everything in this series is over the top. The characters, scenery, wildlife, just plan all of it. I think this is what adds to the fun of the series. Similar to Naruto, we will have a male character that is pushing the envelope on all levels. Alas however, I am getting ahead of myself, so let’s start at the beginning.

We start off with the execution of Gold Roger aka The King of Pirates. He makes it know that he has a treasure called ‘One Piece’ that is out at the Grand Line. This treasure, with this death, is now up for grabs and starts what is known as the ‘Great Pirate Era’.

Lets now introduce you to a young boy (Monkey D. Luffy) who is sitting in a bar/restaurant listing to pirate tales by ‘Red-Haired Shanks’. What Shanks doesn’t realize however is that Luffy is ‘eating’ his treasure, a Devil Fruit (like all boys, he has a bottomless stomach). As it turns out, this is the Gum Gum Fruit and Luffy’s body is now as bendable as rubber. Sounds great huh, but the ill side effect is that anyone who eats these fruits, can’t swim. Must be great being a pirate with amazing powers, but can’t swim – oops.  After a battle in town, Shanks gives Luffy his hat and thus is born ‘Straw Hat Luffy’.

With each adventure, a new shipmate (friend) is found. His original crew starts off  with (in order met) Zoro (3-Blade Sword man), Nami (sexy Thief and Navigator), Usopp (tells tall tales, but great with a slingshot), Sanji (their chef who is a skirt chaser) and to round out the crew Chopper (a anthropomorphic Reindeer Doctor). If you think this is a rag-tag team, wait until you meet the rest of the crew. It is always a fun adventure full of hi-jinks and danger, but they manage to get through it. I swear that Luffy dies like 50 times in this series with all the crap that is thrown at him.

Now let’s expand on the Devil Fruit and the other Pirates of the show. This may be a mixed bag however as most of the Pirates have eaten the Devil Fruit. There are actually 3 types of fruit. These fruits types are Paramecia Fruit (alters the body in some fashion), Zoan Fruit (allows you to change into an animal) or Logia Fruit (you can actually become an element). I am not sure if the fruit is labeled what it does before you eat it, but I am not sure I would be able to take the chance on eating one.

Some of my favorite Pirates are Buggy, Ace and Hody Jones. Buggy is a clown pirate that ate the Chop Chop Fruit. He can literally chop his body into pieces and each part acts as an extension of his body. Now Ace (who is Luffy’s older brother) ate the Flare Flare Fruit. He has the ability to make and control fire with his body. As for Hody Jones, well he is just a plain old Fishman – with a really big mouth and razor sharp teeth. Just as unique as each pirate is, there ships and flags also reflect their personalities. Some are just the size of rafts that the Blackbeard Pirated use to ones that are huge like Moby Dick which the Whitebeards Pirates use that can swim under water.

By the way, who is policing these guys? That would be the World Government and their Navy. These guys are more like the Keystone Cops than anything else, but do have a few heavy weights like Smoker (ate the Smoke Smoke Fruit). They popup here and there to cause issues, but end up just being an annoyance more than anything.

This is an extremely fun read or show to watch for anyone who has a funny bone. My son has been enjoying both and even drew a One Piece scene on his Math Test (boat and crew). For a fun time and an extremely wild adventure to boot, this is one series that you have to catch up on. Not wanting to take my work on this, well for the record, the Manga series has been breaking publication records in Japan. Volume 57 of the series sold 2,305,594 copies alone.

One Piece also has a great variety of merchandise that is as vast as the seas. There is so much that you will fill your Treasure Chest to the brink of exploding. If you want to get you and your crew setup in the pirate gear, then check out the fine selection at Miccostumes.

Here is a hint of our next post: We see several Sailors who are happy playing with the Planets.

Hetalia Fanart Contest – Gentiana Hime (Gracjana Kasperkiewicz)

HETALIA

Axis Powers Hetalia Fanart Contest


Artist Bio:
Name : Gentiana Hime (Gracjana Kasperkiewicz)
Gender : Female
Nationality: Polish

Social Networks: Devianart, Facebook

Hello! I’m living in Germany, but I am of Polish decent. I’m a fanartist since the age of thirteen. When I stumbled upon Hetalia, I was really glad to find a manga dealing with different countries interacting with each other as I’ve never seen something like this before! My favourite characters are Russia, Prussia, Germany, France, Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine, Iceland and Finland. Also, I like the genderbend ‘Nyotalia’ versions of the nations as well as creating own characters from countries which didn’t show up in canon yet.

——————————————————————————————————————–

Let’s enjoy Fanarts of Gentiana’s!

1. Sweden/Finland

Sweden/Finland
Comments from the artist: I really enjoy drawing pairings, and Sweden/Finland is one of my favourite. So, have some medieval dressed Finland and Sweden surrounded by the most typical thing for Northern Europe- snow! Coloured with watercolors.

2. Japan/Taiwan

Japan/Taiwan
Comments from the artist: Another favourite pairing of mine is Japan/Taiwan. Even though they hadn’t much interaction in the manga yet, I still think they’re cute together! Drawn with a Bambbo tablet in Photoshop.

3. Greece

Greece
Comments from the artist: Mostly song inspired, I came up with a slight thoughtful fanart of Greece. I hope I captured the scenery well, and of course, there is one of Greece’s numberous cats! Drawn in Photoshop.

4. Romania

Romania
Comments from the artist: As soon as Romania had his first appearance, I wanted to draw him so badly and I am quite content with what came out. Drawn in Photoshop.

5. Russia/Prussia

Russia/Prussia
Comments from the artist: Last but not least my absolute favourite pairing, Russia/Prussia, but this time with the Nytolia version of Prussia. I think they are perfect for each other, I should definitely draw more of them! Drawn in SAI
