Jessica munching on a Banana (2012-07-11) Jessica 17 SEP 2012

Back in July, we handed over to Jessica her very first, uncut banana. Quite remarkably, she seemed to get the hang of eating it straight away, resulting in this particularly cute set of videos captured by Chantelle of Jessie happily munching away on her banana while watching TV next to Daddy.

Needless to say, I’m pretty chuffed with my little one because banana’s are probably my most favourite fruit out of them all! :)

Munch munch munch…

Neon Genesis Evangelion Cosplay: Rei Ayanami [Plugsuit] (Namada) Cosplay 10 JUN 2012

Cute Japanese cosplayer Namada suits up in what has probably become one of the most iconic anime costumes ever, Rei Ayanami’s Unit-00 plugsuit from the original Neon Genesis Evangelion series.

The enigmatic Rei Ayanami, one of the mysterious First Children and pilot of Evangelion Unit-00, is a silent and socially withdrawn girl, displaying no lust for life or passion in her actions. Fiercely loyal to Nerv’s leader Gendo Ikari, Rei knows her expendable nature and has no problem throwing herself into battle despite the possible danger and risk to her self.

As the series reaches its climax, some serious revelations regarding the nature of Rei gets revealed, and as such she plays a pivotal role in the follow up movie, The End of Evangelion.

This unidentified cosplayer appeared at 2011’s Fantasy Frontier 18 Anime Expo, held in Taipei, Taiwan, posing around long enough for enthusiast Sean Su to capture some nice pictures of her in her threads. And while the cosplayer herself might may remain unidentified, the character she is portraying most certainly does not – it is of course the Vorpal Blade-bearing, cynical Alice from Alice: Madness Returns, the 2011 sequel to the cult favourite American McGee’s Alice, first released way back in 2000.

X-Men Cosplay: Kitty Pryde a.k.a. Shadowcat (Yashuntafun) Cosplay 11 MAR 2012

Kitty Pryde, a.k.a. Shadowcat, has literally grown up in front X-Men comic book fans as the years have passed by, maturing from a young insecure girl into a strong and resilient X-Man that all her teammates can depend on. Today’s fantastic cosplay rendition of everyone’s favourite intangible heroine comes from American cosplayer Yashuntafun, also known as Megan to her mom.

A mutant, Kitty possesses a “phasing” ability that allows her and objects or people with which she is in contact to become intangible. This power also disrupts any electrical field she passes through, and allows her to simulate levitation. At the time of her initial membership, under the then codename Sprite, Pryde was the youngest person invited to join the X-Men team.

During her early years, she was portrayed as a “kid sister” to many older members of the X-Men, filling the role of literary foil to the more established characters. However, this has evolved with time and Shadowcat is now more than capable of standing on her own. Apart from her phasing skills, Kitty is also a capable pilot and hand-to-hand fighter, as well as possessing excellent computer skills, both in terms of programming and design.

Oh, and she is a talented dancer, at a professional level in both ballet and modern dance, and can shout at you in English, Japanese or Russian if she so wants!

Strike Witches Cosplay: Francesca Lucchini (Lenfried) Cosplay 28 OCT 2011

The cute magic-wielding, flying, pantless army girls of Strikes Witches are highlighted in this week’s cosplay outing, this time around featuring one Francesca Lucchini, brought to life by cosplayer Lenfried.

At only twelve years of age, Francesca Lucchini is the youngest member of the 501st fighting unit, having joined from the Duchy of Romagna. Her rank is that of Pilot Officer and her unit affiliation was with Romagna’s Sovrana Aeronautica Romagniana 4th Air Unit.

Because of her age, Francesca is fairly childish and self-indulgent, often skipping training or base duties to rather have some fun or enjoy a nap instead. However, in the middle of battle it quickly becomes apparent that she has a talent and passion for flying. When combined with her Striker unit, she reveals the ears and tail of a black leopard.

And for some reason she likes to sometimes speak in a sing-song tone.

During battles she carries a M1919 A6, Breda-SAFAT 12.7 mm machine gun, or Beretta Model 1938A.
