I'm usually found somewhere around :iconlaovaan:
And I got a tumblr blog :O
This year I'm going to ramp up my cosplaying endeavors by a factor of 5 (hopefully) as I have so much planned and I'm already working on stuff which used to be on my to-do list for ages.

2014 started with making Ike's sword just in time for Leipziger Buchmesse / MCC which got me motivated to do more than just one or two cosplays this year. By the way, the tutorial for Ragnell will be continued soon :3 Thank you Luna-x-Kitty for the great photos x)

First of all I'm trying to do Haruka Nanase (Outro/Ending/Desert Version whatever you call it) for Japantag. After seeing (but sadly missing seeing it in person) LaviBaka's rendition, Haru jumped from somewhere in the middle of my to do list right to the top

Also I always wanted to do a 'regular' version of Link, because painting my face black to do Dark Link was getting on my nerves and I skipped doing it for several cons already. Since they are all very similar I decided to try OoT and ALBW Link for now x) TP Link has too many details and I wanted to do something quick for now. Also, there will never a better TP Link than Laovaan so I might as well try to complement him on future conventions x)If there is some black fabric left after I've completed Haru I might make another OoT tunic and hat in black as I see a lot of people cosplaying Dark Link that way ;)
Waiting for the 7.18 by LaovaanLlama Emoji-02 (Blush) [V1] 
I've already got most fabrics I need and started making patterns for these three projects, which I will try to accomplish in parallel 
Llama Emoji 35 (Desire or Want Something) [V2] 
There is also Pit's Bow and Wings which need to be finished for Dokomi ^^ I already have a plan for the bow in that I'll use the same techniques as I used for Ike's sword, but I'm still on the lookout for the perfect Wing tutorial which looks good, isn't too expensive and work heavy (I know I know, with these limitations why am I even cosplaying xDD). So far I used the wings CocaBeliLight gave to me at Connichi last year, which have been a life saver so thank you again for them :3

After all of these are finished I'll sit down and think about what's up next. Keep an eye on my dA ID description where I regularly update my cosplay list :3 I'm also posting pictures on instagram (the name's Echolox ;) ) when I'm working on something ;D

Last but not least, I'm still making music of course!!! The Astray will get a new EP this year (we're currently working on releasing Lives as a single), Salt The Skies get's an EP as well, and there are some collaborations going on, including one with Lemmonias so stay tuned on that front

Last night I attempted something I wanted to try for a very long time: Cover one of my favorite songs on all instruments. And then I thought "Hey I should film it as well!". This is the result of that experiment 

I'll definitely do more of these in the future, I already have a very long list of songs from well known to amazing but way too unknown  Also I'll think of another way to record the drums, it turned out very overcompressed and there wasn't a lot I could do in post-production ^^

Oh, and who recognizes the jacket on bass and drums? ;D

I had planned to do Gunvolt, which is more or less a spiritual successor to mega man, for Gamescom but then the new Zelda trailer happened and I got side tracked ^^
