Summer Season has passed!!
Finishing of with Czequestria in Prague, the Summer Convention Season for Yami has finally come to an end.
The past months have been hectic with long days of preparations and activities, with a lot of things to craft and organize.
There has been many ups and downs along the way, but all in all it's been a kickass Summer!!
The opportunity to travel around Europe and meet all the fans and other Cosplayers have been invaluble,
and would never have been possible without the aid of masterminds behind the Conventions.
Huge shoutouts to all the great organizers and crews of
CRYSTALFAIR, GALACON, BUCK 2014 and CZEQUESTRIA!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH <3 <3 <3
From Galacon to BUCK 2014
The awesomeness of Galacon and Germany has passed, and we now look forward to BUCK 2014, taking place
in less then a week from now in Manchester! For this event, Yami is still hard at work with finishing her
Goddess version of Fluttershy!!
Here's a WIP sneak peek of the costume!
Thank you, Finland!!
CrystalFair 2014 was a blast; Yami had a great time together with old and new friends,
along with all the MLP fans and fabolous Cosplayers!
Looking forward: Yami is waiting for a shipment of material which will determine what Cosplay she'll
be bringing to Galacon in the upcoming weeks. There will be an announcement when we know more!!!
If you're attending CrystalFair 2014, and would like to meet Yami, then your best shot is at Vendor Table #5!!
There she will be selling some of her handmade MLP-themed props and accessories, swing by and have a look!
Next stop: Finland!
The Summer Season for Cosplaying is in full swing, and the next Convention for Yami will take place already
this weekend in Helsinki, as CrystalFair 2014 opens its doors! Aside from Cosplaying, Yami will also
do a bit of vendoring this time, selling handcrafted items and goodies that goes excellent with the Brony-theme.
Today is the first day of Storcon! Yami will be there in Cosplay during Friday and Saturday, will you?!
Yesterday, Yami entered the Cosplay Contest at Birdie 2014 with her Genderbend version of Donquixote Doflamnigo

Lady Jaina Proudmoore!
Dreamhack Winter 2013 was beyond epic, there's no other way to describe it!
Represetning Blizzard Entertainment themselves, Yami rocked the Booth at the Dreamhack Expo area. Taking
pictures and interracting with fans who gathered to get a close look at the upcoming games and hanging out with
the Blizzad Community Team.
But she didn't just dwell in the Blizzard area, oh no! Yami also walked through the LAN halls several times,
attracting and encouraging the BYOC-attendees to also swing by and join the fun! Aside from that, Yami also
entered and conquered the Cosplay Competition organized by "Komplett.se" over at their own Booth!
The spoils were an awesome set of speakers that will fill her workshop with crystal-clear music for years to come!
For those wondering, photoshoots were also had with two photographers during the event and pictures will be on
the site as soon as they are ready for publishing. But until then, have a splendid Christmas and New Years Holiday!!!
See you in 2014!!!!
It's finally official... for this year's Dreamhack Winter, Yami will be cosplaying Lady Jaina Proudmoore,
by direct request from none other than Blizzard Entertainment themselves! You'll mostly find her guarding
the Blizzard Booth, but you may also find her roaming the floors of Dreamhack now and then.
The Booth itself will feature, for lack of a better word, a shitload of activities! Play the latest demos of upcoming titles such as Hearthstone, Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls and WoW: Warlords of Draenor! Participate in competitions
and win epic prizes! Get your picture taken as a Hearthstone card! Mingle with members of
Blizzard's European Community Team! There's soooo much to do!!!
SEE YA AT DREAMHACK!!!
Slow updates, tons of stuff to do...
Let's be honest, we've been busy as hell and updates on the site have been non-existent.
We're working on a lot of stuff behind the scenes that we're sure most of you will be super-hyped to hear about!
But for now, check out Next Appearances for the latest info!
This week we launched the Official YamiNoCosmos Youtube Channel, with our first upload being

BRONIES FOR THE WIN!
What can we say, BUCK 2013 was an awesome event. Being the first Brony Convention that Yami
has ever been to, she wasn't sure what to expect over in Manchester. But visitors and staff alike welcomed
her with open arms, and she absolutely loved it!

Storcon has passed...
During the last weekend of June, Yami competed with her SHED-version of "Fluttershy" from "My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic". Starting early with preparations on Friday, she participated in a live interview during the Morning News of P4 Uppland, a local branch of the national radio network. Making sure everything was perfect for the weekend,
Yami went into Saturday with an early photo session and moved on to participate in the Cosplay Competition held at Storcon that afternoon. During the final hours of the convention on Sunday, Yami was declared the Winner of category "Best Props".
It was a long weekend of hard work, and Storcon was an absolutely amazing convention. Lots of space, a well-organized (and big) staff and great activities made this event truly something extra. We'll be back in 2014, count on it!!
... and make sure to check out the new "Fluttershy" gallery in Portfolio!

Ploting and Scheming for 2013!
First of all, due to unfortunate circumstances, the Zombie Panel wasn't held at Jpopcon. It will be saved for a future convention or event. It might even be produced as a stand-alone video clip, no final decisions have been made yet. Futhermore, Yami is currently taking her time to plan the rest of her cosplay year. Sadly, CrystalCon in Gothenburg this Summer has been cancelled, meaning that we don't know yet which convention will be the next one that Yami graces with her presence. Stay tuned for more updates and upcoming features on the website!
