Coco is Missing! T_T

Our cat Coco is missing. 

We last saw him Monday, May 27 before we went out to watch a movie. When we came home, we were told that he’s gone & missing. His leash got loose from the hook and he went outside because he likes to rub himself among the bushes. He’s wearing a harness & dragged his leash with him. Whoever, saw him can easily take him because unlike dogs, cats do not bite anyone he doesn’t know. Also, he’s used to people so he’s not really scared to be picked up by anyone. 

Thoughts are running through my mind. I hope whoever found him is just waiting for someone to claim him and would return him as soon as he finds out that someone does own him. I also hope he’s not being maltreated because normally at night he vocalizes a lot and when he’s missing Robert he howls a lot.

We love that cat. He was a gift from Robert 1 1/2 years ago along with Sasha. I raised them myself and they are my babies. My heart is so heavy right now just thinking about him being lost. I hope they feed him. 

I am praying that he gets found & gets returned to us. We posted ads around our area so people can see if they have seen Coco around. 

I am so sad right now. 😦

Cosplay: Infested Kerrigan (Star Craft 2)

Every now & then, I might feature some of my cosplays here in my blog – as long as I get the time to do a nice write-up for them. 🙂 And since it’s the launching of Star Craft 2’s: The Heart of Swarm, I’ll probably begin by posting my Infested Kerrigan costume. 🙂

“Every living thing in the universe will bow before the Queen of Blades, or else they will die. Obedience or oblivion. That is why we fight.” – Kerrigan’s creed

 

We made this costume last year and I first wore it at the 5th Philippine Cosplay Convention held last March 3, 2012 at Robinson’s Manila and won “Best Female” for it. It’s almost a year already but this still remain to be one of my favorite costumes of all times. 🙂

This was the first costume where we played with other materials. We used latex for the body sculpt here. The other parts, like the arms, thighs & legs are made of rubber, coated with thin fiberglass.

Image

See those wings? It’s made of PVC pipes with metal bracing at the back. I have a brace made of fiberglass which holds the wing bones via butterfly screws. It stands almost 7 feet tall folded and almost 8 feet when spread apart. 🙂

It’s a little heavy but quite manageable. I think I can stand with it for 3-4 hours straight then I just have to take it off. LOL. The costume is actually 98% done since we didn’t get to finish the shoes when I first used it.

I did the make-up. Kept it simple but wanted to make it as feminine still despite her being a monster. 🙂

To date,its our most intricate costume ever made and I am proud of it. I thank my team for it  – Benjie & Robert. 

I was also flattered to be praised by Mr. Steve Wang to be one of the best Infested Kerrigan cosplayers he’s seen so far (How awesome was that?). He was the one who originally sculpted the Infested Kerrigan statue for Blizzard Entertainment. 

I’ll probably do another post for the making of this. For now, I hope you enjoy the amazing photos I got from those people who took pictures of me as Kerrigan. 🙂

with fellow cosplayer Erin Joan Yang as the not infested Sarah Kerrigan. LOL.

Do watch out for more of my posts on this. You may also visit our page for photos and updates on our cosplays.

Till then.  meow. ~(=^‥^)ノ
