1 year ago..
I was kind of inspired by a Singaporean name 阿福 to learn how to play meepo.
He has the highest solo mmr in SEA at that time but his hero pool is limited to meepo only.
He can’t play other heroes or he will feed hahahaha
It was quite fun coz it’s like tab poof tab poof tab poof tab poof omgg
And meepo is quite popular in that patch
So I decided to add meepo in my cosplay plan and told the D2MC family about it
Initially I wanted to cosplay meepo myself coz I don’t think anyone will join me xD
But surprisingly Shaunie suggested to form a secret meepo squad for 2015’s Comic Fiesta.
She dragged Hui Min, Grace and Micho to cosplay together xD
That year the plan was cancelled because I won’t be back to Malaysia until early 2016.
Plans and drafts
I decided to continue the plan this year because I got an internship in Malaysia
I also found a white wig laying in my house (in Malaysia) xDD
But Desi joined us instead of Micho because she already had plans that year DX
Nvm no ultra big tetek cosplayer to steal the spotlight HAHAHA
I took my old meepo cosplay design and made some amendments so that the costume is not that hard to make
Initially it was like this, the right side one is final draft in 2015 (I lub pleated skirt/dress <3):
But then after some edits and advises, it’s like this:
Turns out damn cute lar >///<
I expect my group is like do their own stuffs lolol but no!
They are actually quite organised!!
Hui Min helped to draft the patterns of our costume and props!
She teach us what materials to use etc etc!!
Other members also taught me how to make my props as well cuz it’s my first time making cosplay props lolol! (the templar assassin one damn cheat lar, its koko krunch box + paper + water colour haha, not really the real deal)
I actually wanted to make the skull keyblade too but my luggage is like can fit 35 cm only 😦
So I ended up making aghanim’s scepter coz it’s detachable hahaha
We ordered all of our stuffs in Taobao (ears, tails, hoodie, crop top, skirt, pumpkin shorts and furry animal legs <<this bobo didnt reach in time so we kaki ayam hahaha)
The making of Meebobo
It was quite rush making the costume and props when I was back to Sarawak on 1 December (cuz I can’t make it in KL) + I have work so not really much time to make it
The freaking skulls bird is the most kacao 1! I made it thrice! Now gonna make the fourth time liao
Everyone hates the bird lolol most of us made it twice coz no idea how to get the round smooth shape
After that I use my sis’ bra HAHAHA coz big enough LOLOL, failed and brain function a bit so I use the inside of a bowl to make the round shape
My first bird head ugly af LOLOL
Second bird head still ugly lar but better a lot liao!!
Spent lots of time acquiring the materials as well coz not sure where to get those stuffs also
Made the scepter with hard plastic cover for assignments LOLOL Googled the pattern for diamond origami
Not really nice if u look closer coz I didnt cut properly T_T
Insert mini LED from Daiso for the effect!
I purposely take 1 day unpaid leave just to rush all these stuffs coz really not enough time 😦
Spent like 2 weeks to do and coz keep remake or accidentally smudge the paint or something (coz u have to wait the paint to dry so wasted a lot of time on painting)
Didn’t have much sleep also 😦
Keep chiong my props once I came back home till 12am++ only take my dinner then sleep
Arriving KL on Friday
My cb Aussie bestie Carmen lied to me that she’ll pick me up at the airport.
She pakat with my bf so that my bf can give me surprise.
No wonder my bf keep calling me asking me where am I but my friend offline 1 hour already wtf
But that night my bf also haz to go coz he got tournament at JB the next day T_T
Lonely night that day T^T
Comic Fiesta Preparation
Set alarm woke up at 9am because these few weeks not enough sleep!
Proceed to makeup etc and attach some of my props but unfortunately, my scepter’s sides keep drop down
Even when the taxi arrived I have to tell him to give me a sec to fix my props
I was holding the scepter’s gem part so it wouldn’t fall apart if i knock it or something during the whole trip to PWTC
I reached PWTC around 12pm and dragging ma luggage along coz gonna sleep at different location that night
Went to toilet and change my clothes + wear my wig and then I sohai
I don’t want to go inside the toilet cubicle coz lazy to wait hahaha
I wore fnatic shirt which is loose enough for me to change my cloths inside
So I accidentally hit my bird skull then it fell on my freaking gem
so FCK my scepter’s side thingie patah
AFTER ALL THE HASSLE I TOOK JUST TO MAKE SURE IT DOESN’T BREAK ToT
One second, its a GG liao!!
The moment I walk out from the toilet, unexpected thing happen..
People actually recognise me and said “Meepo! Meepo! Aghanim’s Scepter!”
Wow coz I think this set is a bit unique and not much people will own this meepo set
Didn’t expect people to recognise me even I’m not with my team!
I told the photog my scepter wings patah hahaha
He damn smart xia he adjust my prop to the side so that it looks like side view of my scepter
Comic Fiesta Day 1
I meet up with the other meebobos inside the event hall
We decided to paint our toenails black coz our shoes didn’t arrive in time
It’s so cute watching meepos helping each other XDD
Hui Min sacrificed her leather fabric to make leg cuffs for us so our legs doesn’t look plain!
Sorry guys if we rejected for photo that time because we were waiting for our nail polish to dry as we couldn’t really pose for photos
I wasn’t good with poses coz I completed my scepter on the day before I was going to fly to KL :((
Didn’t get much time to prepare for it
And usually I cosplay schoolgirls hahaha
I love our height! Coz we haz 2 shorties and 2 tallies so it’s kinda like balanced
We went to the props fixing station which is really nice because there’s so much tools to use!
Fixed my scepter and we proceed to the food court
So much people taking our pictures and someone even requested us to poof HAHA
We went to eat then ok my props start to poof again, went back to Pylox for fixing
Really sorry guys my scepter too fragile that I think most of our photos my scepter like one side got wings only ;_;
Anyway, I learnt a lesson that day
It was the first time me cosplaying with a big prop like scepter
Some people requested to hold my prop or touched my prop (without asking) when taking photos
NEVER EVER let anyone hold ur prop unless ur prop sturdy af
People swinging my scepter like a wrecking ball
Please don’t peepur, protect ma prop, it’s damn fragile
Be gentle please and do not touch my prop unless I allow u to do so because the wings are so fragile that it might break anytime ;_;
After that Jam-sama help us shoot some photos behind Pylox
That area was like a road with trees at the side
I think Jam-sama did a great job coz even the background so ugly he also managed to shoot it like it’s very realistic ><
Thanks to Thomas the saikang-sama for helping us to hold our stuffs and communicate with Jam (coz I’m quite shy with new ppl ><)
Met Dec Dec the pinoy tinker cosplayer there! Was so surprised that he’s really friendly
Again, I’m too shy to talk more lolol sorry Dec-sama
We had some amazing indoor shootings and did the mannequin challenge hahaha
Looking forward to our photos!!
I’m really grateful for every meebobos’ teamwork and cooperation!!
Without u guys, our meebobo surprise cosplan wouldn’t happen
Although we didn’t get to shop at the booth, it was a great day for me!!
It’s the best cosplay group I’ve ever had. Seriously. Best af.
Comic Fiesta Day 2
I gay with my bestie, Tamao on day 2.
We cosplayed Emilia from Re:Zero together!
I was so sick on Day 2 I don’t know why
Probably because I’m very hungry and lack of sleep for few days
I sneezed, which is a disaster for my makeup ugh
Tamao lent me her Emilia cape because I don’t have braids ><
We got stopped by tons of people LOLOL
which I feel very shiok la HAHAHA
like 24/7 surrounded by people taking photos of us
We end up didn’t make it to the booth area because it was closing by the time we reach there
so I actually never visited the booth area for 2 days
At the end of the day I called GrabCar when I think it is time for my flight
Thanks to Thomas and Shaunie for taking care of me and sorry I took off my “stuffs” in front of you guys HAHAHA coz I didn’t wanna look weird
I’m sorry to those people who got rejected by me when they ask for photos :((
Was very rush to the airport
I almost miss my flight due to the jam D:
Thank God I arrived just on time man
And I really appreciate Shaunie for letting me to sleep next to her XD
and Thomas for sending us to the venue
I guess that’s all lolol byes *goes to Dota*
