our Soulcalibur V cosplay group at Expomanga 2012OMG, I just can't believe we made it. Yesterday we attended Expomanga 2012 (one of the most important cons in Spain and the bigger one in Madrid) being part of a 13 members SCV cosplay group. It was a dream come true.our Soulcalibur V cosplay group at Expomanga 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This
SC is one of our favourite games of all time and it was awesome we were able to gather 13 fantastic, nice and hard-working cosplayers on this purpose.
We had a fanastic time. It was very hot but we didn't mind. Here you can watch our skit. Enjoy!
We won the 3rd prize!! (Technically we were disqualified because they didn't let perform more than 10 memebers per group. So winning that prize is great and we are vey happy they gave us that recognition).

Yaya's Cosplay Tips - Part 1I had to have emergency surgery this weekend to remove my appendix, so not only did I miss HeroesCon but I'm also on forced bed rest for the next little while.

fucking internet.....i consider myself a fairly open minded person, and quite an easy guy to talk to. when people want to share my pictures and strips, i take it as a compliment. when people want to do fanarts i take it as an even greater one.fucking internet.....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
when people want to trace my stuff or use it as a reference, i say, go for it. if it helps you learn something, awesome!
when people want to edit something of mine and take the moment to ask me to do it, i usually say yes
we are all different, we all have our own little fetishes, and mine being bdsm, who the fuck am i to judge.
but recently i have been sent a link of one of my pictures, ally and lisa as a ponygirl one edited to be a guy....and it pissed me off.
not because the picture was edited, hell not even because whoever did it ended up putting their own website watermark to it... fuck it
what pissed me off is that the person who did it couldn't take a second to ask could he or she do it. just basic respect

How to Get a Stolen Image Removed from a WebsiteThere's this wonderful thing called the DMCA - the Digital Millennium Copyright Act - which requires websites to remove content that is stolen intellectual property. This includes photos, sketches, written documents, and many other forms of digital media. Nearly all websites which host media content will have a DMCA takedown report form so you can report stolen images electronically.How to Get a Stolen Image Removed from a Website1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Most recently, a lot of folks in the Taxidermy community here have had issues with an Anti-Fur group on Facebook stealing their images illegally to use for their own bullshit agenda. Here is the form you need to have the image taken down: https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/208282075858952
There are two options you can click to report. If you want a photo removed, you will need to click the bubble for "copyright", then "continue with copyright report".
On the next page, click "I found content which I believe violates my copyright".

Don't work for freeJust don't. It starts a bad trend… I can only speak from personal experience but in reading blogs and such most people have experienced this so I'm only preaching to the choir but know this working for free gets you nowhere.Don't work for free1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you get asked by people to work for free politely tell them thank you but I can't at this time. They will move on to the next person they can get to do the job, more than likely their teenage nephew or niece who "likes to play with computers."
Do not fall for the same old talk of: "It'll get you great exposure!" "This will help get your name out there!" I have never once had my name get "out there" for freebies, or if I HAD the rep I got was "She works for free." and I got more people knocking on my door asking for free work.
Working for free will NOT eventually lead to getting paid gigs. In fact it will get you in a rut and inevitably you will stay broke. You will undermine your worth and that

Big Confession TimeIf you caught my last few journal entries, I had been on a comic hiatus due to "domestic issues". Between two job changes and house responsibilities, tensions were running high with Brad and I. The comic went on the back burner as it became a point of conflict between us as we attempted to focus on getting our relationship back on track. He's a great guy, but we both decided it just wasn't working between us anymore.Big Confession Time8 months ago in Personal More Like This
so I'll just come out and say it.
Brad and I had a mutual Break up back in January.
Pete and I have been slowly getting back into each others lives for the last year and a half, so then Pete and I decided to try again.
:iconpeteiswhatweaimfor: is back.
Hence the new comic format.
I decided to mash the ideas of "Apartment 401Y" and "Madame Antonia's house for wayward manchildren" into one idea. One better fitting for keeping characters like GLOMPY (who didn't fit into either world) to sort of create a higher quality reboot. With it i'll be slowly transitioning to a new DA.

When Science and Magic Switch PlacesI started a conversation with Artikano about the relationship between gender and Mysticism and Magic, and it really got me inspired to explore something openly.When Science and Magic Switch Places2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What happens when the function of Magic and Science switch places?
Because I really think it's happening.
... Let me explain. First by quoting a scientist. Then by quoting an anime.

In the world as we know it, there is this rule of balance that is in every aspect of life. Call it Karma or Homeostasis, this rule cannot be broken. There are those, however, who would try to break it. This is called cheating, and it elicits both intensely negative and positive responses when it is seen.

I will not be attending MCM London this weekend. I probably should've posted that earlier. Blah. I don't know if I'll be attending in the spring again either. I would love to do so, but the airplane expenses are just so astronomical I don't know if I will be able to do so. I'm still paying for when I attended last year...
Sorry my activity here on DA has been so lag lately. I don't know what it is but I just don't have the energy to work on much anymore outside my two regular jobs.
I don't like joining groups, so please don't suggest I join any.
Also, If you're part of one of those "promote artists" or "art everything" general groups, please stop recommending everything I post. I really don't want the attention. They're probably spam bots, but on the off chance they're not... please leave me alone and stop recommending my stuff every time I post. I don't want my art in your groups, so stop asking.

2014 Yaya Han Calendar - it's here!I thought now would be a good time to make the calendar available to the public since they were shipped out to me yesterday! After the successful trial run of last year's calendar, I wanted to make an even better cosplay calendar for 2014!2014 Yaya Han Calendar - it's here!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To summarize: The 2014 Limited Edition Yaya Han Calendar features 12 months of new cosplay images printed on glossy 11x17 paper, which flips open to a 11x24 calendar. Out of the 12 monthly images, only 2 have been released before, all others are brand new and shot exclusively for the calendar. None of the images will be available as a print or poster, you will only be able to see them in the calendar.
FREE shipping within USA and Canada, $10 shipping everywhere else! It is again $24.99, just like last year, and will be signed and personalized by me! I'll post some teaser pics soon but you get a great idea of the calendar's look from the cover and back cover alre

Animosity STOP ITI've been seeing a LOT of Animosity online and at cons lately that I think is just weird. The net seems to be getting more and more toxic with negative people saying anything that comes to mind. They see something and even a "That's stupid" just strikes me as why on earth did you even take the time to WRITE that. Just think it and move on. But NOOOOOO…. Not on the net, the net is where we share our hate.Animosity STOP IT10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Really? Really people? It's now pouring out into everyday, at cons I noticed people backbiting like crazy. Why at one show I just went in for a day, I had swag, I was prepared and yes--I have fan art to sell. It wasn't my first rodeo, I've done cons before and you gotta make back money for travel and other expenses so having fan art brings in the money. Sprinkle in your own stuff and then you can start filtering out the fan stuff. This is my plan right now. The entire con another artist talked smack th

Wedding Drag and Pronoun-onsenseThis weekend was a lovely wedding for a good friend of mine (seems like everyone's getting married these days!) and Al suggested I go in drag. I was a little hesitant... not because my friend would care. She's super supportive of that. And not even mostly b/c it would be the first time in a church as myself. Just because I don't know her family and don't want to create a distraction from what is ultimately her day.Wedding Drag and Pronoun-onsense2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was totally fine though! Everyone was just lovely about it.
There were some quirky moments. At one point I was looking for the guy's restroom, as that's my go-to (ehn... so much drama over something so simple). I was standing in front of the women's looking lost apparently because a service person walked by and said "It's right in front of you!" So, I shrugged and went ahead. No one was there, so no harm
