Cosplay Friday: Calling All Heroes
Sonic Wave by cibo-black-cat
Not for the faint of heart,
The fan–made Defense of the Ancients (DotA) strategy game takes place on a virtual battlefield where skillfully trained players level up their heroes and arm attacks against each other’s teams to claim satisfying victory. Released in 2003, it is one of the original multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games and certainly one of the most suc

And the winners are...
In the Judge's Section:
Chosen by :iconmistytang::iconzimeta::iconshoomlah:
Give me your voice by Khioora
What the judges were saying: "Khioora's piece definitely jumped out at me when I was first browsing through the entries- it's a striking illustration, granted, but I was also taken with the integration of both 1830's fashion, and Romantic period portrayals of mermaids with more delineated legs. I'm not a huge fan of fashion in the 1830's, but I'll be the first to admit that it's a blast to draw; I think Khioora did a great job of capturing the so-called "Waist and Extravagance" of the period with both her characters' overall silhouette, and her general detailing of the costume. Great stuff!"~ shoomlah
New Journal Skin and Cosplay ConfessionsWOW!! I got 79 votes on the Cosplay Confession thing so I'm going to have to come up with 79! Wow! <3New Journal Skin and Cosplay Confessions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Do you like my new Journal Skin? I spent HOURS trying to figure out CSS. I'm a bit technology dimwitted. I have never done anything like that before in my life and figuring out all the codes almost drove me to murder. I asked my sister who is very talented in such things to help but she was unable to do anything unless she was in front of my laptop. LOL Talk about dead out of water.
Any-who I'm going to do cosplay confessions in no particular order. ALONS-Y!!!
1. I genuinely like seeing other people cosplaying the same character as me. I like seeing what other people can bring to the table, and I love cosplaying with people who equally love the character as I do.
2. Ever since a friend became extremely upset over me cosplaying the same character as her, I have felt like I am not allowed to cosplay who I want, despite the fact that I am comfortable seeing people in the same thing as

Cosplay adviceWith each day going by, I am asked more & more on cosplay advice.Cosplay advice3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Lala, can you give me some cosplay advice? I am going to cosplay so-&-so.." (Etc. etc.,)
"I was wondering if you have any tips for me when it comes to cosplaying..?"
I have spent years thinking about how to even respond to this sort of question, there is so much advice I want to give, but I don't want to give it to just one person.
Thus... I am going to lay it all out right here on this journal.
If you are the type to say: "TL;DR" Then go ahead & leave now, or just read tip #4. XD To those who actually want to see what my advice is, continue on this long jolly yellow brick road. (Whether you cosplay Wizard of Oz or not. LOL.)
Tip #1: Starting/having a "cosplay group."(What I consider the most important tip, especiall

For almost 13 years in cosplay we’ve made lots of photoshoots, and created dozens of costumes. Digging through the tons of backstage video, we thought it’s time to talk about our projects in detail.

If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it.
Today, Lady Gaga’s throne as a reigning pop diva is a 24 carat gold wheelchair, emergency hip surgery forcing the cancellation of her latest tour – a betrayal more devastating for her than for the typical performer, given her relationship with her fans. Her body has finally broken in sacrifice to the needs of her monsters for constant contact and reassurance. The question now is

Street Photography: The Capture vs. The PoseStreet PhotographyStreet Photography: The Capture vs. The Pose4 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The Capture vs. The Pose
portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.
McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!Today is an incredibly exciting day!!!McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I feel incredibly lucky that on my birthday, I can finally reveal a long-awaited dream come true with all of you.
McCall's Patterns reached out to me last year to see if I would like to design some patterns for them. (Still reeling over this sentence, btw.) I had a meeting and lovely tour of their offices, and then got to work. My ideas were overflowing, but I knew exactly which patterns I wanted to design first...
We're proud to present "Yaya Han's Ultimate Bodysuit Pattern" as the first finished collaboration between McCall's Patterns and me.
It's a pattern we are sorely missing in the cosplay world - I know from having to alter and draft my own bodysuit patterns for many years. This patterns will make it easy for cosplayers (and everyone else) to tailor a bodysuit that will fit them like a glove, and use it as a base for thousands of costume ide
