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


Cast aside by Anae-chan
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!

Another pic of SnK shoot from last Summer's Animecon! Like I've mentioned before, gears were absolute pain in the ass, but I just love how they turned out. <3 (And well, duh, I just love Levi.)
And this pic is one of the two my dear friend YamiAeris told me to upload. :D So I'm being obedient for once and doing so! I love this pic too, though!

DGM is one of those series that just does not let you go. Upon seeing the new pictures Hoshino posted, I just... asdgh. I want to read DGM again. And I want Lavi back. All the feels are here again, they never left! ;______;

"Are you going to leave me too?"

A picture from the shoot from last Spring! Although I'm still not fond of Krista (despite the fact that we share the same name lol), I was kind of fun cosplaying a girl for a change. :D

Btw, I also have fb nowadays! I'm starting also to be active over there, so if interested, go check!
Take to the sky by Anae-chan
Take to the sky
Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core - Genesis Rhapsodos

Infinite in mystery, is the gift of the goddess, we seek it thus, and take to the sky. 
- Loveless

Firstly, asasgpfg. Such a gorgeous picture. Such talented photographer. ;____; Secondly, I heard more than once that there's no point recycling old cosplays. I call that crap. Genesis is old, and there are things I'd do so much better nowadays, and yes, I sometimes cringe when I look some things on that. Yes, I could fix those and invest so much money on that, but I rather do new ones. And yes, I still wear it every now and then. Because it's a cosplay that's remotely well done, and dear god Genesis is awesome and fun to cosplay. : D

Btw! I made fb! It's still fresh and there's not much stuff there yet, but will be! Have a look? :'D

Henkinen tunteeni kun huomaan että Levi jonka kanssa photoshoottasin Animeconissa on sama tyyppi joka esitti upean SNK-luisteluesityksen Yukissa! Hellurei! 8D T: Female Titan
Anae-chan Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2014  Hobbyist
Kas hei, mahtia kun löytyy ihmisiä devarista! :D

(Toivottavasti henkinen tunne on/oli hyvä? :'D) Jotenkin mä aina jaksan hämmentyä siitä että ihmiset on nähneet sen esityksen ja tietää mut sitä kautta. :'D Mutta piirit on pienet, ja silleen! (Ja waaah, kiva että tykkäsit luisteluesityksestä! Jotain uutta pitäisi tänä vuonna keksiä ~)

Wow. just wow. I am a iceskater myself and would love to get into cosplay someday - I was amazed at how you got a chance to do the SNK iceskating! Kudos to you!
Anae-chan Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2014  Hobbyist
Hi and thanks! :)

I'm lucky to have had the chance, it was so much fun! (Even if the belts were a bit restricting.) :D Too bad the ice was horrendous, but well, beggars can't be choosers!

Hope you'll get down to cosplay too. This is a very nice (yet expensive) hobby to have. :)
