ECG-European Cosplay Gathering


After a few days we finally could settle down and recover from this amazing weekend.
We still cant believe what happened and that our adventure since September found an end.
For us it was already a huge surprise to win the ECG - European Cosplay Gathering preselection’s at Connichi (we even didn’t plan to go to the winning ceremony, but got convinced by the organizer), because we really messed up our skit.

While Germany is pretty successful in the Solo categories, until now a German team/ group has never won a podium place in the whole international Cosplay history since 2005.
We didn´t expected anything, because we knew neither our skit, nor our costumes are even near to perfect and we could see how talented and skilled other teams are. (To be honest, we messed up our fight and were tripping on stage…).
For us being able to participate next to so many talented Cosplayers, to meet them and to make so many new friends was already an amazing experience and price. To even bring back a podium place is something we never expected.


We want to thank everyone for their kindness and support. Thanks to you we could kept going. It was very stressful and not easy at all. But thanks to everyone we could make it.
We want to thank especially Riko Creatix our best helper for her patience and her time. Helping us to dress, bringing us water, feeding us tasty food and helping us with the prop transport.
Kai for driving our props over 1.000 Kilometer to Paris, being patient with us and endless supportive.
Thanks to Bryan Valentino who made the amazing background video for us and Kukkii-san for the private wig workshop to get a clue how to make this monster of a wig.Thanks for your patience and time!

Also thanks to the team epic for giving their best, being kind and taking really good care of us. Of course Benjamin Zafrany, who sacrificed his sleep in order to make the ECG an unique experience for every single participant! We didn’t felt left alone even once during the whole event, because there was always someone of the epic members helping us. Thank sou!
We also want to thank our senpais Artflower Cosplay and Abyssinian Cosplay for taking their time to answear every single of our stupid questions and giving us all the important advices to survive this adventure.
Also thanks to our sponsors myCostumes for sponsoring our wigs and more and Yakitori for the awesome team T-Shirts.

And of course thanks to all the other participants and congratulations to winners! Everyone made this trip amazing and unique. So much kindness and talent in one place. It was such an honor to be with you guys and to be part of this amazing ECG family! Thank you!

Okonomiyaki recipe (German fry pan style)


Okonomiyaki:
Okonomiyaki is often described as a Japanese pizza. It can be filled with various Ingredients like fish, cheese, bacon, ricecake or different vegetables.
Normally its made on a hot plate (Teppanyaki), but because I sadly live in Germany I developed my own way to make Okonomiyaki in 2 fry pans.


You can change the filling to your liking, although cabbage is more or less the filling you will found in nearly every Okonomiyaki.
I love noodles, this is why I went for a Yakisoba base. You can also skip the Yakisoba part and go with a plain egg base. ^_-


Ingredients (6 portions)

For the batter:
1,5 cups fleur
2 cups water
1 small bag of Dashimoto
oil

Filling:
Pizza Cheese
1/2 cabbage
Champignons
Bacon stripes (12)

6 eggs
3 packs of Chuuka soba
Okonomiyaki sauce
Mayonnaise
Yakisoba sauce
Bonito flakes
Nori flakes

As for the Yakisoba/ Okonomiyaki sauces: I like to use the brand "Otafuku". I tried out various brands and just love the taste of this sauces. You can also make the sauces by yourself.


Preparations:
1) Cook the Chuuka soba and mix the soba with the Yakisoba sauce (like instructed on the package).
2) Chop the vegetables into small pieces.
3) Mix the Dashimoto, water and fleur until the lumps
disappeared.

Now we can start!


1) Pan 1: Fill some batter into the pan, wait a bit and top it with cheese
Pan 2: Fry the bacon until its crispy


2) Pan 1: Top the Batter with Cabbage, champions. Add some batter on the top and afterwards the bacon.
Pan 2: Fry 1 egg

3) Pan 1: Flip the whole thing (if some cabbage drops out, just push it under the batter after flipping). Wait until the cabbage is more or less cooked (to your liking).

4) Pan 2: Put the egg onto a plate. Top the egg with the prepared Yakisoba.


5) Pan 1: Take the batter and put it on the yakisoba.
6) Decorate it with Okonomiyaki sauce, Mayonnaise, Bonito and Nori
Enjoy!


Some hacks:
1) If you don’t like raw cabbage, fry it before adding the cabbage to the batter
2) If you use 2 pancake turners, its easier to flip the Okonomiyaki
3) Press the Okonomiyaki with the pancake turner in Step 3) from time to time in the pan.
Also press the Yakisoba on to the Egg after step 3). If you flatten it out, its easier to eat afterwards and don’t look like the tower of Pisa.


If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
And no worries this will not become a cooking blog.
Im not good at cooking at all. Actually Okonomiyaki is the only food I can make. XD

Happy New Year!

I wish everyone a happy new year and a successful and healthy 2018!

With 23 conventions and over 25 concerts, 2017 was really busy and exciting for me.
I did not only published my new Album "Anime No Tamashi" but also won the preselection of the European Cosplay Gathering with my partner Chiko!

I also visited for the first time in my life the US and got invited by an American convention.
Anime Matsuri was really an overwhelming experience a well as Made in Asia and of course my beloved events in Germany.

It was my first time I got invited as a Cosplayguest and not as a singer, which was also a really new but super exciting experience.
I’m so happy and glad for all these opportunities and I am so happy I could make so many new friends and met my old buddies, although we life on the other side of the world.

I managed to shoot more than 50 times (different costumes and settings) with 26 new costumes, 14 different photographers and 9 amazing Cosplaypartners!

Thank you for supporting me and making all this possible!
I am so so happy and grateful for all this opportunities and chances and I would never be able to life my dream without your support!
Thank you so so much!

For 2018 I already planned a lot of new and exciting projects and cant wait to share them with you!
I´m also thinking about starting to vlog, about Japan, Cosplay and music!
You can look forward to a lot of new projects!

Thank you for your support, kindness and precious time!
Thank you!!!
