ABUNAICONIt's come around SO fast, and I feel totally unprepared!!ABUNAICON3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, Abunaicon is THIS FRIDAY, and I've finally got around to deciding exactly which costumes I'm bringing... though no clue what ones I'm wearing on which days!
- Portal, Experiment 13B
- Avengers, Tony Stark
- L4D2, Ellis
- X-Men, Rogue
I haven't worn Rogue for aaages, but having tried it on again last night, I'm really excited to be wearing this costume again. She is, after all, one of my absolute favourite Marvel characters~
There is a preliminary EuroCosplay round being held at Abunaicon too, so we're expecting to see some awesome costumes at this! As Jenn and I are primarily non-Japanese/Asian origin cosplayers and choose our costumes from outside of this spectrum, we're looking forward to seeing not only some great costumes from animes and manga, but also some fantastic Western-origin costumes too!
Keep an eye on your convention schedules, and come see our panels!

The brilliance of Derpy HoovesAs many of you know in the first season of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" there was an animation mistake resulting in a background character having googly eyes. Internet fans of the show (bronies) latched on to the character and nick-named her Derpy Hooves.The brilliance of Derpy Hooves3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since the show has become such a huge internet phenomenon, Hasbro has responded to the appreciation by acknowledging the strange character and inserting her into strange places throughout the second season.
In "Feeling Pinky" she appears as the reason for a number of huge objects dropped from the sky.
In "Luna Eclipse" she appears dressed in a Halloween costume of made of paper bags.
In the Rainbowdash and Fluttershy duet song in "May the Best Pet Win" she creepily peeks her head out of the chicken coop.
In "Sweet and Elite" she appears inconspicuously dressed in her paper bag outfit hidden among fancy ponies during Rarity's musical number.
Hasbro's decision to accept the show's unique internet fame and fanbase is a really am

Guide on how to create vector-style rasters (OLD)EDIT - Dec 08, 2013 - This is OLD, like really, really OOOOOOLLLLD and outdated, and there are better methods out there. I don't even do vectors this way anymore. That said, it's still useful as a guide on how to use the pen tool to make shapes specifically for pony vectors in a manner where they're layered efficiently easily modifiable. Just felt the need to point this out as I am still getting messages from people who don't understand that this is old and that I know there are alternative methods. I thank you all for your input.Guide on how to create vector-style rasters (OLD)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I say anything, if you're familiar with proper vectoring at all then once you've heard what I do you'll realize I'm not making "true" vectors with the process I use. This might seem a bit odd because what I do means that if I wanted to make a larger version of the image I would basically have to scale the paths I've made and re-"paint" the whole image, but I'm just doing these for fun so I make them large to begin with; the end re

Demode Couture (There are so many links I could post that are already compiled and organized beautifully on Kendra VanCleave's site. Absolutely worth your time.) http://demodecouture.com/links/
The Costumer's Manifesto (cluttered but deep, lots of good links hidden away in the fray) http://www.costumes.org/

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!I know quite a few of us in this group probably have a 'Cosplay' facebook, unfortunately last night Facebook deleted all accounts featuring the word 'Cosplay' in the username and because of this a lot of people have lost pictures, memories, and friends. If you were one of these people and you'd like to either share your personal facebook or remake a Cosplay account using a different username feel free to post a link in the comments below!!IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I went as Gretel from that game I'm always raving about, Gretel and Hansel! I went with my sister and her friend who cosplayed as Chell and Companion Cube, respectively. Had an AWESOME time, but I'm sore from walking everywhere in dress shoes, and my goddamned pantyhose chafed my thighs. I'm glad to be back in jeans again.
I'll have pics up when I can post them! Been so busy, got some summer homework to finish and some requests

However I kept thinking about the idea of two different girls, stepsisters, dreaming about their perfect horse.
One night, these horses came to life, and took them to a world full of them. Something, like, that. Yeah.

Double point challenge no.8 - S01E02Hello vector makers!Double point challenge no.8 - S01E023 years ago in Personal More Like This
We're continuing the episodic focus of our DPCs with this one. Each asset recreated from the episode Friendship is Magic, part 2 will be awarded with double the usual 1-5 points.
That means 2-10 for any vector from episode 2!
Moreover, first three submissions that would normally get 3-5 will get triple instead of double. That means moderately complicated vectors - not things like flowers or rough background trees.
Go get them assets people!
