Bookfair Leipzig 2015 - Sunday - Pincess Leia Organa (STAR WARS) Cosplay

Hello everybody ^^

Today's post is about the last day of bookfair Leipzig - Sunday

Michi and I planned a new STAR WARS Cosplay for that day!
I was Princess Leia Organa (Episode IV - A new hope) So it's a really oldschool and iconic cosplay!!!
I was not too sure about cosplaying her... the outfit is really simple and not very flattering and the hairstyle actually does not suit my face... you know my face is kinda round.
But she is such a great character. I just loooove her. So I badly wanted to cosplay her >.<°

Michi cosplayed Mon Mothma.
original character
 She is not a very well known character. But she's so important for the Rebel allicance and was even a senator back in the days of the Republic.
Michi decided for a version of this character form the prequel trilogy (Episode III). So our outfits don't match so well...but the characters themselfs match perfectly. 

~ haha short before leaving for bookfair~
I made both costumes! And I put so much effort into Michis cosplay! It was so much more time-consuming and difficult to sew and much more expensive.

But you know... it's the destiny of an unknown character... I got so much more attention at the fair... -.-° poor Michi!
But it was really fascinating how many visitors wanted photos. Especially the "ordinary" visitors (not the other cosplayers) wanted photos (even WITH me together XD) and even many children seemed to know the character XD
That prooves it: Leia is just fucking famous and STAR WARS ist still in the heads of people!

Michi and Sato (she cosplayed from Air Gear) having a break <3
I met Renoyuki on Sunday and it was kinda funny because we were carrying the same d.i.a. bags ^^
well, not really matching my cosplay XD
nice to meet you ^^
I didn't meet many people on sunday...
yeah~ Mao my sweety XD
Mao, Hani and co. had a Kuroshitsuji group this day <3
Jacqueline, Mao, Kukki, Hani... (photo taken from Kukki)
I was hoping for some more matching STAR WARS cosplayers... but just found some (many XD) Obi-Wans and some ordinary Jedi and a Count Dooku... so nobody from the original trilogy -.-°
If there was a Darth Vader or a Stormtrooper then I missed them....

So we made a photoshooting on our own ^^
the R2 is just edited with photoshop XP
uuuuh~ I love the photos so much <3
I don't look as stupid as I imagined to look like and Michi is just perfect for Mon Mothma!!!! <3 <3 

Michi had a serious Pokémon battle inbetween against Kiki!!! Kiki won! They both will take part in this year's Pokémon battle world cup tournament!
Kiki with tartan shirt and sujimori hair in the background!
On Sunday I also went into the anime/manga merch hall (MCC - Mega Comic Con).
Look what I found:
pendant of the rebel alliance logo <3 I'm such a geek XD
Michi, Kirschu (birthday girl), Sato and Kiki <3 I love you all so much <3
 Apropos geek: 
I will participate in the official cosplay contest at STAR WARS Celebration Anaheim (California) this April! Such an honor to be accepted!
Therefore Michi and I will travel to California for a 2 1/2 weeks holiday! We were planning this journey since September 2013 and now finally the time has come (starting 3rd of April) <3 <3 <3
bye bye~ chu <3

Ihr beide seht supertoll aus. <3
Und nun fällt es mir wieder ein - wenn ich dich mit simplen Makeup sehe (also nicht Gyaru), erinnerst du mich immer total an die gute alte Buffy-Zeit mit Sarah Michelle Gellar. <3
Powergirl! :D
