Photos from katsu are trickling in and I have the first photo from our Hondoline group! I'm still in awe that we had all of the lords. I'm even more amazed that these cosplays were not only made by us all, but also designed by us. These character have only ever been in Tolkien's books so we had to take their (sometimes short) descriptions and design our own cosplays. Everyone looked amazing and I'm so happy I got to be Glorfindel with such a talented group of people! There's a lot of us and it's hard to keep track of everyone, but grumpyoldwizard put together a handle name chart you can see in the second photo XD

对联-Horizontal and vertical written couplet usually placed above and along either side of a doorway to celebrate the Chinese New Year which is also an expression of the good wishes for the new year. #duilian#reddoor
The best part of growing up with three different cultures is that I don't have to decide which one to pick. Embracing diversity and my roots was a pretty difficult challenge for me growing up in rural Germany. Sometimes the struggle of defining my identity and wanting to be included in society as well as emotionally can be tough and talking about this identity crisis is still an important subject in my life. Nonetheless I feel more than lucky having this personal challenge and being able to witness and carry the beauty of many cultures in my heart ❤️ Chúc mừng năm mới (Vietnamese) & 恭喜发财 (Chinese)! 🔮 Wishing you lots of inspiration, health and prosperity for Lunar New Year 🎋💫🐕 My personal handwritten Duìlián (calligraphy on paper) this year focuses on inspiration and the ease creating things 〰
My calligraphy is very bad. I couldn’t find a good brush. I couldn’t find a good ink.
But at least I could made my rhyming couplets —
My caligrafía es muy mala. No encontré un buen pincel. No encontré una buena tinta.
Pero al menos pude hacer mis coplas rimadas. #duilian#cny2018#chinesenewyear#xinniankuaile2018#laowai
