Anae-chan's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist

I'm a cosplayer from Finland, and that's the art you mostly find here. There are also some fanarts and some fanfictions. If you're interested in the last one, I suggest to go to I do write a lot, you see.

As you might realize from my ID, I'm also a figure skater. Cosplay and figure skating are both hobbies I hold dear and love from the bottom of my heart.
(I'm also the nutcase who had this crazy idea of making Shingeki no Kyojin figure skating show.)

If interested in SnK on Ice;
Go watch:…

And last but not least, all my costumes are self-made.

Don't be afraid to say hi, I love meeting new people!
So. Um.

Hello everyone, the old and the new!

I never expected to find myself writing anything like this, but with the sudden increase of watchers and comments I just have to!

So, I guess most of you know me now as the girl who performed the Shingeki no Kyojin figure skating program at Yukicon 2014, Finland.
You know, as I spent most of my Christmas holiday making the choreography in public rink hours cursing the kids and their parents and sewing the costume, I kept on thinking that hey, there's gotta be at least a few people who'll like the show! (Even if I couldn't risk a wig due to the speed, let alone a binder. Nor could I pull all the jumps I would've wanted, thanks to the frost.) 
And at the convention, I cursed again, since the ice was by no means as good as I was told it'd be. But I decided not to be sissy and tell the frost (I think it was about -15 C?) to go mind its own business, since I'm doing this!

And I did.

And there were more people who liked it than I ever imagined. (I could say it exploded, in a positive way of course!)

So. I think I just want to say thanks to everyone who helped me with to make this possible (help with the belts, borrowing the swords, videotaping, the convention who was dumb enough to say yes), and also huge thank you to everyone who watched and liked the video!

SnK is awesome and so is cosplaying, but even more so is its fandom.
You guys are awesome.

Thanks. <3

A distant light
The Hobbit - Kili

"Far over the misty mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old,
We must away, ere break of day
To find our long forgotten gold"
- Howard Shore

I FINISHED IT. (I lack one knife, shush.) And I'm proud of it.
Most of the detailing was done in a week with me sewing 24/7 instead of writing a thesis. Not recommended, but worth it. (You can't actually see all of the details, but oh well.) I love this photo our photographer snapped in quick photoshoot in the convention! When I get my hands to the rest of the pictures, I'll be uploading them. :D

It's too cold outside for the angels to fly.

Okay, I kind of decided that no SnK pics for a while, but we had winter-photoshoot, and, well, this picture happened. It was cold (-15 C, I think), and I was breathing to my hands to keep them warm, and next thing I know, photographer tells me to stay put. And, as you can see from the result, I look illegally cute. :'D

Thought about not putting this here but why not! :D So yup, I skated on this year as well in Yukicon, this time with the Hobbit-theme. (And it was recorded, too.) :D

A couple of notes for Kili's costume; It's not perfect and it isn't finished yet. I had to forego quite a few things (bracers etc) to be able to skate in it. But I still had fun and ppl enjoyed, and that's the point, right? :D Hope you'll like it too!

Been a while since I posted anything, so let's have some more Gokudera! Easy closet cosplay, wig borrowed from a friend. Was fun though! :D

Cast aside
Shingeki no Kyojin: Kuinaki Sentaku (A Choice with no Regrets / Birth of Levi) - Levi Ackerman

"In this land cast aside from the light, it’s not rare for those who are born and raised here to rot away without even seeing the surface."
- Birth of Levi OVA 1

I just watched Levi's OVA and asasdgh. Just when you think you've grown over fangirling, something hits you on the back of the head and says "LOL NOPE". Not that I really mind that much though - I love Levi as a character and even if the spinoff isn't that great, it still gives something more to the character, so. No regrets, here.

Last weekend I finally got to photoshoot as young Levi! (Since I finally got the trousers and vest finished.) I got more pictures coming up, with gears and all that jazz. I also froze myself to death there - 0 C degrees with blouse, vest and trousers isn't the best choice. And there was snow, unf. (Worth it, though.) Anyway, hope you like the pic as much as I do, more coming up later!
