Behind the Scenes

Behind the Scenes #9

These past two weeks were full of X-Men, X-Men and well… X-Men. I did do some other things, don’t worry, but yeah most of these pictures all have to do with the new movie that came out on 19 May!

Bookdepository had these cool colour bookmarks, and one night I was rather bored and decided to use some fineliners to colour them in. I then used a pencil to give them all a similar look, and I have to say I am quite happy with the result! I can’t wait to receive more of these so I can colour even more!

On my birthday, I went to see the last three X-Men movies with two friends, one of which was also as Quicksilver, and Tanja (above) was as Scarlet Witch (aka ‘my’ sister). We had lots of fun, and it was nice to see all three movies on the big screen!

Of course, we had to take a picture with ourselves. I have actually decided to cosplay his outfit from Apocalypse; not the flight suit, because that’s probably too much of an effort (maybe in the future though), but his normal outfit. I’ve already bought a pair of goggles, and the rest is also on my to-buy list!

Master has given Disney a sock! Disney is free! She wanted to play with the sock, so I gave her the sock. And then she fell asleep. What a loser.

I had wanted to buy this Scarlet Witch Dorbz for so long already, but I couldn’t find it in any of the Dutch webshops. So I ordered it from an American one through eBay instead. She arrived very quickly and look how adorable she is!

I was invited to a party a while back, and it was very nice; I borrowed someone’s flower crown after a while and I think I had it on for most of the evening.

This was one of the other flower crowns, and it lights up! And it’s amazing!

When people are taking selfies, there will always be people trying to get into the frame at the last moment (*cough*notme*cough*).

We were invited to come to a cinema in Hilversum in cosplay, so people could take pictures with the X-Men if they wanted. We didn’t have a lot of people who wanted a picture, mostly kids, but it was nice meeting more Dutch cosplayers!

All the movies I’ve seen since I got a Pathé Unlimited card! I bet there’s going to be lots more to come this year and hopefully the coming years as well!

Haarlem has some comic days coming up, and for that, the Pathé cinema is showing a couple of (older) comic movies. So of course, we had to go and book tickets to see all of our favourites! I can’t wait to see Age of Ultron and Deadpool on the big screen again!

I went to the store with my mum and I came back with this cool Avengers pillow! I am totally a grown-up, I swear!

Our local shopping mall has Tijger the cat, and the Pathé cinema in Haarlem apparently has this cat who comes around every day. She (I think) was really calm and let me pet her for a while, and ahhhhhhhhhh I just love cats so much!

I received the corset for my Civil War Wanda outfit in the mail. Apart from the fact that I can’t lace myself up properly, it fits perfectly and I am really happy with it. Now I only need to find the coat, and then I’ll have the outfit complete. I decided to not go for 100% accuracy because this corset is more bright red than crimson, but I just want to go for recognisable!

My sister sent me this picture of Disney, and it’s so cuuuuute! I have no idea how she managed to make this work though, it never works for me! :C

I finally bought and read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. I personally didn’t think it was that special, to be honest, but I enjoyed it.

See you in June!
