Welcome to another part of “Behind the scenes at AruChi’s”. Let me talk a little about photos today and the magic you can do at home with just a few tricks.
Of course these pictures can’t possibly compete with those of regular photoshoots we’re having, but they are something I’d call ‘decent’. There is actually not much needed to make them and I hope some of you might find what I’m sharing useful.
Every now and then I get questions where to buy those bear clips I used for my Junko cosplay. Well, those aren’t up for sale, but there is a pretty easy way to make them. Thisworks for other accessories as well ;3
What do you need:

I’m cosplaying since 2006, so quite a long time. Can’t believe that it’s just two years until my 10th anniversary. I have a lot of messages telling me that people admire what I’m doing, but I’m always sad when I see or hear people saying that they will never come to a level where I am now, especially if these people are only cosplaying for a year or so…
