Let's Go Let's Gokaijaaa~

I never thought that I would get addicted to the Super Sentai series again. I am not really into the power rangers stuff anymore. They appeal more to kids now and besides, the action scenes are somewhat predictable. It's that kind of genre, the Tokusatsu genre. I personally prefer shows with a heavily analytical and action plot. 

But... as I was thinking of new characters for my next cosplay, my friend suggested "Power Rangers" to me. It will be a group cosplay, he said. I hesitated at first, thinking that the costume would be a skin-tight outfit.  

"Oh no, it won't be a tight fit costume", he replied while showing me this photo...



"Oh! Nice costumes!", I said. It turns out that we would cosplay the 'normal' clothes of the power rangers. Yeah, I haven't thought of that. My friend is a genius! 

We would portray the characters from Kaizoku Sentai GokaigerIt is the TV show that commemorates the 35th Anniversary of the Super Sentai series. Woah~ That is a lot of power rangers! I can't believe the fact that the series existed way before I was born. Hehehe~

My friend initially suggested that I would play the yellow ranger. But but but... I have always liked pink rangers since the Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger days of Jason, Kimberly, Billy, Trini, and Zack. Hehehe~ I still remember their names from memory. Now don't get confused, I will cosplay the pink ranger from the original Japanese series Gokaiger. Yep, I asked my friend to give me that role. And that is how the pink Gokaiger, Ahim de Famille, got into my cosplan list for 2014.


The pink Gokaiger
Before every cosplay, you need to do a character study. That means researching all about the character, her mannerisms, and way of language. For me, I started out with the easiest route: watching the Gokaiger series. 

Honestly, when I saw Ahim de Famille and hear her speak, I instantly had her figured out. She did not seem to have a complicated personality. I immediately understood how to portray her. So there shouldn't be any need to continue watching the series as my purpose has been fulfilled, right?

Wrong! Hehehe~

I don't know why I was still glued to the screen. Wow! I was instantly hooked as I watched the first episode. The Gokaigers are unique because they are able to use the ranger keys of the previous Super Sentai and thus able to transform into various power rangers! Yay! It was so amazing to watch them transform to Goseiger, Shinkenger, and all the others. I saw Bioman, Fiveman, and oh my gosh~ Jetman! There were other rangers that looked familiar but I can't remember anymore. This is what make the Gokaiger series stand out. It is an incredible trip down nostalgia lane



This Super Sentai series has the same common and predictable plot: evil monsters attack earth and sends out many weak pawns, rangers defeat the enemy with their super weapon, enemy gets revived into a giant, rangers ride a vehicle that merge into a robot, then finally defeats the enemy. And it happens in almost every episode. 

But still, I was addicted to the series! What kept me glued to Gokaiger is the plot development. Despite the slow start, it provides deep character development. It still has that analytical element I'm looking for, just not presented at one go, but rather given on tidbits. 



Yeah~ The Super Sentai series still has appeal to me. I'm very suprised! Hahaha~ It is a good series replays on your head and keeps you addicted to watch more! And oh... did I mention that the OST is so catchy that it will keep playing in your head for the whole day?



I'm super excited to cosplay Ahim de Famille! Let's Go Let's Gokaijaaaa~!

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the
