Diva Destruction

I came across as good darkwave goth band named Diva Destruction while browzing youtube the other night. They are from the nighties, I always get into good stuff really late like anime, Evangelion, good music ect. I really like them. As a fan of goth music they really remind me of slow, goth tunes like Sisters Of Mercy alittle bit but are more electronic. Diva Destrcution are very relaxing to listen to. Debrah the main singer has a beautiful voice which is haunting and leaves you with an eerie feeling. She also sounds very fragile and soft which I like to.

It was the image of the singer Debrah Fogarty which got me listening to their tunes. Her image reminds me alittle of Jessica Fondera from Jack of Jill, the doll, goth look with her tiara but is more mature. Here are a few tunes I really like from them.

This song, In Dreaming is one of the most beautiful songs I ever heard.

Other good songs I like from them.

I unfortunely can't find much information of this band but here was an interesting piece on them on

Some great photos I am inspired to do, put alittle of anime, dolfie into the look. I use to dress goth alot when I was younger but I never really fitted in with the culture and I couldn't dress goth everyday, I would get bored. :p I do really like this kinda look though and I always appreciate goth music. I think Diva Destruction are my current obsession and I want to try and get one of their albums if I can. I would highly recemmend listening to them if you are into castlevania, vampire esque, dark Depoche Mode, Aural Vampire and the like.

Cosplay update - Eirtakon

So I am working on my new cosplay which is C.C. from Code Geass in this costume.

Yesterday, thanks to Nora, Stephen and Fiona we got lots of bits and pieces of the costume and I will be heading to Noras on Sunday to work on it. I have ordered my wig, my old one was very tacky and is now a frizz ball. :P Thankfully Wildcat in Dublin have gold, brown lenses which are C.C's eyes so I can just get them there. This cosplay will be for Eirtakon a big anime and manga convention I run the cosplay events with Fiona every November. I have been working with Eirtakon for a few years and really enjoy it. I will someday blog about how I got involved and how I worked myself up to Cosplay Ireland and running other events. :)

I will also cosplay in my other C.C. costume, which is my favourite costume I have as it is very striking.

Here is a picture of me cosplaying with Matt Gaffney cosplaying as Zero which is a very impressive costume. This was for the Eirtakon Cosplay Calender we done back for 2010. It was to raise money for Temple Street Children's Hospital, Dublin but unfortunely didn't sell very well. You can see my wig is beginning to turn into the frizzball stage. There were fun times. This picture was taken at Dublin Castle and there was lots of tourists taking our photos. :p

I will be so happy when I get a better wig and lenses as I can get good photos of this costume. I like C.C. similar to Rei I see myself in her abit the way she can be cheeky and flirtious. :P I will also be cosplaying as Rin again from Fate Stay Night as Liam O' Brian who does the voice of Archer is our guest of honour! I would love to make this costume too for Eirtakon but time would be an issue. So as tradition goes, I have to get a photo with a voice actor who voices from a series I cosplay from.

Also yesterday I went as Cosplay Ireland to the Dublin Comic and Toy Mart to judge the cosplay contest but nobody cosplayed. :P Awh well it was nice meeting Emmett who was running the event. So stay tuned and I will upload some progress shots. :)

In Dreaming

Sorry that updates are slow. Just been very busy with college and I am getting alittle streessed. I have only been out a year and it is like I have been out of college a few years and finding it hard getting back into it. Should be ok though, just going to take it easy today, get a good rest, then get stuck into studies tomorrow. On Friday I had a field trip down to Wexford, it was a public art conference which was really interesting. It gave me an idea to perhaps sometime do a panel on something like Cosplay is art or Public art of anime and manga.

Also I really love tumblr and I am addicted to it. It is a very artistic site and I like the way people express who they are and their likeness for characters and such. I have also come across nice Rei images which I would like to do photos of.

College has been very busy, I have so far spent my evenings trying to get this law contract essay done. I feel like I am never going to get it down and all it is just maths to me. I know the essay will be very benefical to me when I start my business but it is just daunting. I will get though it I suppose.

In the meantime, had fun on Thursday.
