Love Live! Mermaid Card series, one of the most spontaneous cosplay I had done recently. It was like 2 weeks just before Mini CF that Yuu decided to get this done on that weekend when I travel up to Penang for Mini CF. Everything was just so sudden, we managed to get all the things needed, the sewing, the crafting and the accessories and background props shells (ehem ehem from my Mum's collection) and also the most important ---- photographer!! A very good timing that our dear Fuyu had came back from Singapore to attend the event as well~~~ 

This is the first time I had been working together with Nightmare! Talking about spontaneous, Nightmare actually join our plan just two days before the shooting day because we would like to have the main 3 girls in the picture and we were lacking one at that time. Like I say everything is spontaneous =w= /////// It was when we were doing the last minute shopping for the shooting and decided to get Honoka's stuff ready and within two days, and grab Night for shoot (no rejection allows! XDDD). 

It was a great thing that everything turn out to be perfect in the end, thanks to the great weather on that Sunday morning with perfect sunlight and the beautiful toilet with XL size bathtub in Yuu's house. We managed to stuff 3 of us with our legs stretching out~~~~ 

Talking about Umi, she is the love at first sight character from LoveLive anime. I wasn't into Love Live until recently Yuu tries to get a team and I am part of it. For the sake of the group, I started watching the animes, and Umi just hit my heart and I knew I am so dead---in a pool of Umi's plan!!!!! I definitely will have tons of Umi in the future///////
