Another Sabi update! + Yuna cosplay photos (FFX-2).

Hello my lovelies! I'm in the mood for some late night blogging, and I thought I'd update you with what I've been up to lately! ^_^

First of all, I know I haven't been updating my YouTube channel as much as I'd love to recently - but I have some awesome-sauce videos lined up for you guys! Here's my latest YouTube video, which I posted up yesterday!

Yes! Another Final Fantasy XIII-2 cover, and you can't blame me 'cause I've been on a bit of a FFXIII-2 frenzy lately, haha! I'm absolutely loving the game. I still haven't completed it, as I've been keeping myself busy with side quests and maxing out my roles, but to be honest I really don't want to progress with the main story for now as I don't want the game to end haha! You know that feeling when you're really enjoying a game, and you just want it to last forever? Lol, well that's kind of what I'm feeling!

So this weekend I've been dedicating myself to recording music, and I'm really enjoying it! A few blog posts ago, I remember mentioning to you guys that I'm planning to go to University later this year to study Sound Design! So I'm currently recording for the portfolio I was requested to send in. ^_^ Exciting stuff! 

Another fun thing that I'm preparing for, is my next cosplay! :D

On Feb. 25th, I'll be going to Hyper Japan! For those of you who don't know, it's a Japanese culture event here in London, and last year I went with my boyfriend Seb and it was tons of fun! Here's my vlog of the event last year, for those of you who haven't seen it!

As you can see, there was a lot of yummy food/gaming/anime/cosplay goodness involved. I happened to be in normal attire on the day...although funny enough, someone thought I was cosplaying because I was dressed like this:

I guess I did look quite colourful and anime-ish..HAHA! On another note, I really miss having blonde hair! :'( ..Damn you bleach! Why must you be so damaging to hair?! I'm pretty much forced to stay brunette right now, because if I don't stay brunette...I'd probably end up being bald thanks to all the dye I put in my hair. Lol...and the bald look, I don't think it would suit me much. What do you think? :P

So back to my next cosplay! As you can imagine, I'll be cosplaying for the Hyper Japan event, and I can't wait! It's only my second cosplay ever, so I'm still a cosplay noob haha! My first cosplay was last year, when I went to the Distant Worlds concert here in London on November 5th! (It was such an amazing night!!) ..I went as Yuna in her songstress costume from Final Fantasy X-2 (FF fan much?!) hehe. Here are the photos:

Once again, here's another vlog I posted last year, where I filmed some footage from the Distant Worlds concert! ^_^

I plan to go to this year's Distant Worlds concert too! Can't wait for it! Hopefully, I can see some of you guys there! Would be fun! 

So who am I cosplaying as for Hyper Japan this year? It's a surprise!!! So I won't be telling you guys yet, but for those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook - I've mentioned her character before, so if you have a good memory, you should be able to figure out who I'll be going as! :D

Here's a photo of the fabric that we bought for my costume:

When I write "we", I refer to my mum and I, as she's my sewing teacher haha! She's a pro, and thanks to her my costume will be pure awesomeness! I'm so excited! She made my last costume for me, and you can judge her skills from the photo I posted of my Yuna cosplay! (I think her skills are amazing!) ^_^

I know it's not much of a hint, but the above photo is all I'm gonna give you for now. LOL. I guess I like creating suspense... ;)

Until next time my lovelies!
