My Fave Clothing Style: The Fanatism in Cosplay Costumes



I love the manga, Naruto, but to be as expressive as these people would be to far to go. I admire their fanaticism over the characters by making some cosplay costumes, since they were adults and not children. However, I must admit some of the costumes indeed caught my eyes, maybe to make it for myself, although maybe I need to modify it to look more nice and casual.

In The Name of Friendship


Part 7 : In The Name of Friendship.

I didn't work for Mr.G in a very long time, since he finally decided to leave all behind and turned himself as a meditation teacher after converted into Buddhist.I tried to persuade him but it was useless.So i regret myself for not having a longer time to learn more about fashion experiences from him.I decided to rest for a while before looking for another new job.

While I was taking my time, my ex colleague asked me to help him in his own project and his plan in raising a new office. I'd helped him though sometimes I felt like being underestimated by his society. It's a well-known habit for his ethnic to do so(this is not racism but the unfortunate truth). 

As a friend, I even agreed to give discount on my payment, since he was just starting his business.Therefore, I worked for him for couple of years until one day they came Molly and her boyfriend. They're from one country somewhere in Europe. They wanted to look for a place where they could find a source of selling thing for their shop,especially the clothes. As most of people here in my country assumed that foreigner always came with a bunch of big money bags with them, that was how my boss a.k.a my friend and his friends saw them.So, when my boss found out that they weren't as Mr.G used to be, he got disappointed and started neglecting them,while he should've helped them.instead he handed them over to me to handle and took care of them.so, in the beginning,my intention was purely doing what my boss told me to do,but as we're getting to know each other better, we're getting closer, especially with molly, I want to help her as a friend.

I felt sorry for her to be cheated several time by some irresponsible people,so I decided to help her based on our friendship.I helped her as far as I know by my knowledge in this field.But she refused to take my help freely, she wanted me to accept her sign of gratitude by taking some fee from her. I insisted in refusing it and she also insisted in giving it to me. She even wanted to let my boss know about us,but I told her no,'cause I somehow knew how his reaction would be towards us.

2007's Promotional Sticker Designs for Clothing Company


I designed the 2 stickers (two of them were made by my colleague) for the company two years ago. The whole concept of all logos basically came from my initial idea but it has been developed in many different kinds of design in the end by me and my colleague at work. One of the designs contained the element I didn't create myself.

Old Hand Drawing/Manual Illustrations


I created this back then when I was still studying fashion design in the early level: mostly related to the illustrations.
My teacher was a very talented man. He made some fine sketches and illustrations.
I used to admire some of his art.

Woven Printed Label 2007



I designed this one when the using of regular woven label was a bit boring for us. So, we decided to make something different by printing certain image on plain cloth and use it as the replacement of woven labels.
It was look highly similar to hand made effect but at the same time interesting due the unusual use of label and cheaper production costs.

This is for portfolio purpose only since it was already produced before. Any use of these image are not allowed.

Personality vs Professionalism



Part 6: Personality vs Professionalism

I finally decided not to continue my job as many obstacles and unhealthy atmosphere in the office.I've talked with Mr.G as I also have been assigned to be his assistant, just for giving him a chance, if he'd like a replacement for my position.At first, he seemed shocked,and started asking why, why that I left the job.I explained to him the real situation and he understood. 

He said that he would still hire me although I worked for other company, but finally he decided to hire me himself as his assistant. I accepted his offer cause I would gladly learned more from him and his experience in this field.He told me to keep on helping my boss,during that time, but apparently my boss denied it and think of me a ungrateful sinner.

Actually when I first told my boss that I want to quit, I hoped he would asked why and I'd told him that I 'd only asked for a raise in my salary since the position already changed as the chief of sample department and designers.However, he just didn't make any reaction and left, made me feel like I was no longer needed in this company.

And so, I worked for him, Mr.G for sometimes until he decided to retire and left all his business in the hand of his partner,'cause he wanted to do something else, teaching meditation.He said 10years was enough for him.I felt sad, 'cause I didn't have any more teacher that I could looked upon to.As long as we worked together, he'd been treated me very nicely. In the beginning I was thinking he would saw me by my appearance and doubted my ability in designing.Well,I'm a Muslim girl with veil.But apparently not, he judged based on my professional skills.I may have the appearance of a Muslim that everyone would think i will work by my belief, but no, my life and my job is two different things. Up until now, I made designs for European markets,which is definitely the largest community of non-Muslim. I made many different sexy design, short pants,skirts,t-shirts. For me it doesn't matter at all,'cause I'd never want to set a limit on my imagination.

Kimi wa Petto (Japanese Drama 2003)


The thing I like in this drama is Iwaya Sumire's clothes for work. It's nice and simple cut-lined blazers with skirts or pants.i love her style as a formal, elegant and sophisticated career woman. I may not display the sample of the clothes, because it would be better if you see it by yourself. The drama itself is quite amusing and interesting though. Love it and have watched it for 3 times now(^_^)

My Fave Clothing Style: 5.Hallibel Espada From Bleach




I like the idea of the top of her clothing style.It made me think of several ideas for woman jackets. and in fact with the strange cutting line, it shows how the author really worship the woman's body shape. Well, as for me it's nice enough although maybe for some people would be a little bit inappropriate to show the sensitive part of the body (a.k.a breasts). I really admire the person who wear the cosplay costume of the character (^_^)

Caught Up in A Nice Short-term Lessons

 
Part 5: Caught Up in A Short-term Lessons 

Awkwardly, most of my people, seeing the foreigner a.k.a western people as the holy mighty rich and handsome tourist who might became their best partner to have a better life,better children,especially a single and young foreigner like Mr.G, the customer of my boss. For them, especially girls, seeing him was like seeing  one best chance maybe to fulfill their dreams,or at least,to get our boss appreciate them better.I hate the way their minds worked and they way they sucked up to the boss. So,when my boss chose me over them, they burst to anger, meanwhile there were nothing they could do anyway.

Since the boss was in my side, all for the sake of his trust for the job to me.At first, it felt awkward for me to be his assistant, 'cause of our differences.In my mind I was thinking maybe he dislike me,but he wasn't that kind of person. he treated fairly based on the job.Therefore, I could get along with him just fine and we worked together for couple of months.The people who used to treat me badly, they slowly turned to do things the opposite way, they tried being nice to me.

Actually I could no longer trust them when I remembered what they've done to me back then.But in the end I just ignored them, since at least I got a little peace in my mind out of their disturbing behaviors. Yet another thing came up as my boss hired more new designers, his new secretary and my friend from the branch office moved here to work with me as the receptionist.Since Mr.G is also quite handsome and friendly person,all the single girls in the office keep their eyes on him.

I didn't really care about all the unimportant things, I got stressed for adjusting to the job new level, 'cause back then I just designed clothes for local market and now I had to learn new designs and techniques for Europe market. It's kinda hard but my boss kept on encouraging me not to give up, he trusted me that I would be able to do it. After sometimes, yes, I did it, and Mr.G was super kind to taught me new things I don't know before, such as lending me his laptop so that I could learn making design in the computer, not only manually drawing it and many other things concerning all about the market that he'd done for the past 10years. We have discussed a lot and I was glad befriended with him beside the job.

Unfortunately, that didn't last long enough. Many frictions, many problems occurred, had made me took a huge decision in the end, although everything was great in the beginning.
