About

My name is Yunie, well, that is my cosplay alias. I’ve been cosplaying for almost a decade now. I am not e-famous, nor do I wish to be. If people like my costumes, awesome, if not, oh well.

This blog was created as a change of pace. I’m sick of seeing other blogs where they don’t speak to the cosplayers, but put them on some crazy popularity pedestal. It’s about getting to know the community and having fun. Cosplayers are people too. We all look different, act different, but have the same hobby.

To see my own work and others in my group, my site is here: Engi no Shouzoku! Cosplay Site

  1. I’ve just found your blog and I loved the ideia. Because a I was tired of all the blogs and webpages of cosplay look the same that I created one to talk about something that’s not showcases. http://cosplaypost.blogspot.com/ that’s my page, but it is in portuguese XD . I’ll make a post about your blog and will become a regular reader. =]

      I’m glad somebody else is out there with the same agenda! 😀 Your blog looks interesting, though unfortunately I don’t read portuguese, lol! I can pick some stuff out though, and the little videos showcased are cool. 😀 Can’t wait to see more!

    I love your blog! Cosplay is definitely something I wish to get into more, and it’s great to find a blog with a real emphasis on cosplayers. You’re right about focusing more on the cosplay community – it really isn’t highlighted enough! And you’re title is awesome 🙂 Cosplayers with brains are the best! You should check out my blog – http://aureliadiesel.wordpress.com/
    I love conventions, and I have a few very close to me (Katsucon!) and so I plan to feature cosplay/cons at some point!

    I’m excited to hear that my favorite photographer, OscarC, is going to start writing for your blog. I’m sure he has a lot of good insight to share! Also, for months now, I’ve really wanted to do cosplayer interviews, but have never found the time for it. I’m glad you’re taking on the endeavor. Keep up the good work. I like what you’re doing here!

    Also, if you have a minute, please check out my blog. I’d love to do a link exchange if you’re interested. http://kricketcostumes.com/

    • Yunie says:

      Thank you! 😀 I’ll have to take a look. I haven’t done a lot of link exchanges as of yet, but if you’re interested in a cosplayer interview… XD

    Hi there!

    I just found this a bit ago, not sure if you’ve seen it yet or not. It just came out and I haven’t seen it anywhere yet! (hence me wanting to send it to you).. It’s a trailer for something called PES (peace eco smile). It looks AWESOME. I think it’s through the Toyota company, but never the less, looks pretty interesting.

    Here’s the shortened youtube link for it: http://goo.gl/bjd0K

    …I figured you’d like to see it and I know your readers like me would love to see it. Let me know what you think! I think the first episode is supposed to come out in a month… And then a new one every month or so. (from what I hear)

    Keep up the good work. Love the site.

    Your reader,

    Ben Lee

    Hello! How are you?
    I was wondering, how do you choose cosplayers for your interviews? I would like to refer a couple of cosplayers to you for an interview, if that is ok! They do great work and they deserve some recognition! 🙂
    Thanks!

  9. Hello! I just discovered your blog thanks to a quick google search. I noticed that you interview cosplayers in a similar fashion that I do. You’ve been at it for a lot longer, and I like to read interviews with cosplayers. I didn’t read very much, but I will keep my eye out on you. Keep up the good work.

    Hello!
    I love your blog. I’m writing to see if you would be interested in writing a blog post about Cos Culture Magazine and their upcoming Kickstarter campaign? My name is Nikko Marie, and I’m the editor and creator. The magazine is 100% independently published, and it created by cosplayers as a way to give back to the cosplay community. We feature the work of cosplayers, prop-makers, artists and designers from around the world, and we are fast becoming THE positive voice for the cosplay community.
    We’re launching the Kickstarter as a way to gain new subscribers so that we can increase circulation to print on a bi-monthly bases (6 print issues per year). The best part about the magazine? We have ZERO advertising, so it’s 100% content. However, because of this we rely completely on the support of our subscribers to keep us going. The Kickstarter launches on the 25th of January, and we could really use your help in sharing it around!
    I would absolutely love for you to write about us and the Kickstarter on your blog, if you’re up for it. I would of course be very happy to help promote your blog on our twitter page (over 11k followers and growing fast).
    Let me know what you think! If you have any questions, please ask.
    You can learn more about us on our website: http://www.cosculturemagazine.com, and you can check out a preview of our Kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cosculturemagazine/839820810?token=0aeff88a
    Thanks! Keep up the awesome work with your blog.
    X Nikko

    I just discovered your blog recently and I love it! 🙂 I am a Costumer by profession but i’m new to the cosplay scene. Do you have any advice for costume makers and how they can connect with cosplayers? ❤ Thanks 🙂

    • Yunie says:

      Social media is your biggest friend. Start following some pages, commenting, and even build yourself a page! Just have fun with it and don’t be afraid to message and build connections. 😀

    Hi Yunie! Your blog is very unique! I also run a cosplay blog, and I try to cater to the cosplayers in the community. I’ve recently started doing feature interviews every friday, and I would love to maybe do an interview swap with you? Or you can do a guest post for me, etc. I think it would be fun! My website is breezeeweezee.weebly.com and you can email me at breezeeweezeecosplay@gmail.com
    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Hi Yunie! Your blog is great! I am a fellow cosplayer and we recently put together a video to coincide with the Olympics of fairy tale characters, if they had their own version of the Olympic Games. May I submit the video for posting consideration on your blog? I think your readers would enjoy it. 🙂 Some of the costumes are full cosplay and some of them are mash-up costumes (part costume, part what they would wear if competing in an athletic event). Thanks so much! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvPDIn-Xq1Y&feature=youtu.be
