McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!Today is an incredibly exciting day!!!McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!4 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
Few words about Joker and Harley costumesREI: We wanted to make a small post about our new costumes, inspired by the amazing arts of NoFlutter :iconnoflutter:Few words about Joker and Harley costumes4 months ago in Personal More Like This
You, guys, must have seen my Victorian Poison Ivy costume, which was as well designed and drawn by the same artist. I felt in love with it the minute I saw it. And Ryoko also liked Harley Quinn’s costume and decided to make it in pair with me.
But after some time NoFlutter created the amazing, colorful and eye-catching design of gender bender Joker. And immediately we thought that would be a great idea to make the craziest comics pair of all times together. Harley Quinn and a new girlfriend she created for herself – the Lady Joker!

Where did you learn?
I've taught myself. My Secondary (High) School art teacher told me 'cartoon are not art' and so I had no interest in perusing 'art' classes any further. At about 13 I began to draw every day, less studying, more drawing what came to mind, creating characters and worlds and getting my thoughts and feeling onto paper.
I joined deviantART at 15, and the feedback and critique I've gained through sharing my art online has helped a lot in my improvement. I wasn't born with any 'gift', unless you count functioning hands, I learned through practice. My early drawings are just as bad as everyone elses (I keep them as proof) I a

Howl’s Moving Castle is best known as the 2004 animated fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki.
While it is as beautifully animated as all of Studio Ghibli's other films this was one of the few times Miyazaki based a film on an existing work. The film is an adaptation of British author Diana Wynne Jones’ 1986 young-adult novel by the same name and the first book in the Ho

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.

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

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

"Lala, can you give me some cosplay advice? I am going to cosplay so-&-so.." (Etc. etc.,)

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.

New video project. Ask your questions!Hi, everyone!New video project. Ask your questions!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
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.
You must have already seen our backstage videos from the shootings, but now we’re going to make them even better. And we’ll not only show it, we’ll speak about it. Of course on our YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/RRartgroup
The first video will be dedicated to Evangelion project, which includes four photo shoots. We'll tell you why we’ve chosen these characters, about the costumes and how we made them.
And most importantly, we both want it to be not only interesting but also useful for you. To cover all the bases, we offer you to ASK ANY QUESTIONS regarding this project in the comments. Feel free to ask actively ) we will try to answer everyone in the video.
Most likely, it will be released in several parts, and the first one you
