OP - SMILE! Fufufufufu! by Berpi OP - SMILE! Fufufufufu! by Berpi
This weekend, The Wonky Pirates (aka me and VelevenÂ) brought a bit of Dress Rosa to Supanova Pop Culture Expo Perth 2014! 
Cosplaying Donquixote Doflamingo has been a dream of mine since Punk Hazard was released - it was incredible to be able to finally finish sewing all of those feathers together and see him become a reality! 
Please make Doffy welcome. Or he'll probably kill you and enjoy every moment of it. Fufufufufu! XD

More pics to follow, hopefully, but Veleven was particularly proud of taking and editing this shot tonight so I thought I'd better submit it while it was hot off the press!

Waa?!? That's you?!! :wow: Gosh, it's so hard to recognize you, even if I know that's you!
You've done an amazing job! I think you've reached that point where you can feel free to call yourself a professional cosplayer!

You are so kind, Scuoosh. A lot of people said that, actually, which makes me fairly proud! It's a lot easier to get into character when you know people aren't thinking of *you* when they look at the costume! Know what I mean?
Aww, mate! I've got a loooooong way to go, yet! I think I'll happily be a hobby cosplayer forever, I don't mind! I think keeping it fun is the most important thing, but it means a lot to hear you say that. :')

haha, you're most welcome, Berpi! :D Yeah I know what you mean!
I totally agree with you! Having fun is the most important thing in any hobby! I mean why else would you do it, right? ;)

I'm sure it was lots of fun at the con, eh? :D Man, I'd love to go to one if there was any nearby! Could you tell me how it was there? Please!! I've never been to a con before and I'm really curious about how people there are and about this whole thing, you know? (:

Berpi Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2014
Exactly right, man. :) In the moments of stress right before a con, (usually when M/Veleven or I are having a mega freak out over finishing things) Mum will come to us and say, "This stress happens every time! You might want to think about why you do this to yourselves ..." and then we do, and we remember how fun it is to see everything come together and bring the characters to life and make other people smile ... and then we don't stress as much! :D

I've only ever been to conventions in Perth. (Do you know much about Australia? If not, Perth is the capital of Western Australia ... and we're pretty far away from the buzz in the East. Sydney, Melbourne and the like usually get bigger and more conventions than we do, and in fact some of our friends fly over there especially for them ... but M/Veleven and I probably won't have the money to do that in the near future. I think we will probably just stay local unless one of our favourite actors or voice actors (especially from Japan!) goes over there, then we might have to think about saving up!!)

Having said that, Perth's conventions are getting bigger, though probably not by international standards. We have people rocking up in the thousands to check out booths and panels and to meet actors and their favourite stars ...

BUT  ...

Usually, us Wonky Pirates don't really get to check out any of that! We're too busy walking around in character! D:

I really like Wai-Con, which happens in Perth at the beginning of each year. It's purely Japanese pop-culture based, and very friendly and accommodating towards cosplayers. In fact, Wai-Con really celebrates cosplay as one of its main features. :D Even though there's so many people, it still feels a little bit like a big family reunion, walking around and seeing a lot of familiar characters and friends. ;)

Well, you two seem to be pretty good in making other people smile! You guys made me smile and laugh a lot xD


Don't worry, I know A LOT about Australia! ;)
This sounds so awesome! :D Wai-Con seems to be a really nice place to be! (To be honest, I've even heard from it before! Some time ago, I was curious what it looks like to go to a con. I randomly watched videos of some cons and also saw some of Wai-Con. I loved the Nyan-line!!!)
Btw, was it hard for you to get into character?

Thank you so much for sharing some information with me about this whole thing! :hug: It's great to know more about it now!

I'm really glad! That's what we're all about!
Oh my gosh - the Nyan line! XD That was hilarious! I think we were in it, but the footage got cut off. Hahaha!
You're so welcome. I'm happy to chat anytime!

Proof women are the masters of cosplay. When they can cosplay male characters better than actual dudes.

Hey man, thanks so much for your comment! It means so much! Regardless of whether it's a girl or a guy that I'm trying to recreate, it's always a character I love, so I try so hard to do them justice. :D Thank you for making me smile BIG TIME!
