Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-upBasic Information:Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-up3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As said before: English is not my native language. I'm sorry for every mistake I made while writing. I'm just showing you what works for me. This is a "you can" tutorial and not "you must". I hope this gives you a basic idea on how I do it and helps you as well. I will not show you any brands of make-up I work with since they are different from country to country. I'm not a dermatologist or a professional make-up artist, so I can't give you tips for "problem skin" cases like acne and so on. Please consult a doctor and let them give you tips for what's best to use before buying something randomly
If you don't know what make-up to use out of the hilarious amount of available products in stores ask a vendor in the store of your choice. They will help you.
This tutorial will be the base for every upcoming make-up related tutorial I will post in the future.
First of all I clean my skin and apply vanishing crème. It's always good to do so
Characters I Love: SupergirlCharacters I Love: Supergirl1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Jenn from Dangerous Ladies @ DA
I had been thinking about doing something like this for a while. Outlining why I enjoy certain characters and who better to start out with than my favorite superheroine, Supergirl.
I feel slightly bad that I can't recall when I first learned of Supergirl's existence. After much thinking (and head pounding) my best guess is it was with the Superman: The Animated Series episode Little Girl Lost. Now before I was a Supergirl fan I was (still am but as I say, Kara is easier on the eyes lol) a Superman fan. I know people call him boring, a boy scout, but Superman is the archetype superhero. Personally, I like the idea of an absolute good guy hero so Supes always will be one of my favorite heroes. So as a much younger Mad Man (minus my pen though) I watched STAS and fed my growing love of the DCAU. Then we get to Little Girl Lost and I meet Supergirl.

also: its already safe to say that this contest got the most submissions in the three year old history of FGE with almost 50 submissions while the focus of the contest was a quite niche one.
Last year it was all about the Samurai Shodown fighting games during Januar-Februar, in 2014 it is going to be a Capcom Celebration Contest of their many Fighting Games and Beat'em Ups with the EXCEPTION of Street Fighter and Darkstalkers since both of these series have a ton of fan art already and we try to get those other games and characters in the spotlight on FGE!
The Prizes are
25€ (around 30$) OR a 12 Month deviantART Premium Account for the 1st Prize
10€ (around 13$) OR 3 Month deviantART Premium Memberships for the 2nd and 3rd winners

What is a Daily Deviation?
The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART.
A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.
The staff/volunteer members responsible for selecting submissions for the daily feature often are open to suggestions and individual community members may direct their attention by noting the appropriate Community Volunteer or staff member with a direct link to the deviation which you are suggesting and a brief description about why you think the work in question should be featured.

Alcon 2012 and EnglandIt's been a crazy two weeks here in Vancouver for us XD We were guests at two of our cons in Vancouver which were on back to back weekends! It was a lot of fun but it's been cosplay-o-rama and con-o-rama none-stop for 2 (going on 3) weeks. Alcon will be our third con, so we're prepping and resting up for it so that we can show everyone the best time possible and have an absolute blast ourselves! Last year was amazing, this year is sure to be 100% better with :iconvaldrein: coming along. I'm so excited to see Parle and our friends from Alcon and Banzaicon again! I've missed you guys!!!!!!!!! Plus I can't wait to meet new people at Alcon this year I'll watch the rain as I touch all your faces... and something about fire... I don't actually know the song I just use it out of context.Alcon 2012 and England3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We're running a number of panels at the con, including one we're doing for the first time (Makeup Panel). We'll also be premiering Episode 3 of Kingdom Bros which is, for lack of a better word, terrifying.

Myself, VandorWolf and Valdrein got into London Saturday morning and after going through the obstacle course that is the International Visitors way through Gatwick airport we were greeted by a sleepy KellyJane who had woken up at 5am or something crazy like that to come get us at the airport (weloveyou). We spent the day with Parle in stinky plane clothes and with about 3 hours of sleep each which just made everything far more magical (except for the magic show we watched in Oxford Circus which was crap...

Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank***WARNING: THIS IS A SUPER LONG AND DETAILED POST!***Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get a lot of questions on how waselreins and I did the body makeup for our demon sisters cosplays. So here I'll tell ya'll how we did it, in addition to the whole story about the limo entrance. With pictures!!
On Saturday morning, I woke up at 5 AM to get ready for Kneesock. The limo was going to pick us up at 12:45 PM and I had to help the others get ready so I woke up the earliest to do as much of myself as I could. After the necessary prepping (shower/wash face/brush teeth/moisturize) I put in my contacts and wig cap first.
I used Ben Nye MagiCake Aqua Paint in red for my face and ears. I was told afterwards it's pretty bad for your skin so next time I'm gunna use Kryolan or Mehron, but for Fanime Ben Nye worked perfectly fine for me. Here's a bit more info on it here: http://stageandtheatermakeup.com/bnmagiaq.htm
Instead of water to spray onto the red makeup I used LiquiSet and a foundation brush to apply it to my face.
Tutorial: How to straighten a wigOkay, I promised to translate the tutorials I wrote some time ago and today I'm starting with "How to straighten a wig". Please notice English is not my native language, so you might run into spelling, grammar or punctuation mistakes. I'm really sorry and hope you're able to understand it anyways. If you run into any kind of problems while reading feel free to ask in the comments.Tutorial: How to straighten a wig3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are able to understand German you can go to my Animexx weblog and read it there :3 Unfortunately dA doesn't support embedding my pics into the text so I had to put them directly over/under the text. Sorry for that!
I'm just showing you what works for me, so this is a "you can try this" and not a "this is the only way you can do it".
As you might know wigs are made out of plastic fibers. Plastic is a heat bendable material, so this is the essence of the both methods I will show you. Styling your wig with heat will also work for curling it, making spikes and so on. Please be careful whenev

Saboten Con Line-Up and Stuff!Yeah! Stuff!Saboten Con Line-Up and Stuff!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So Saboten is in a week. Thankfully I'm not frantically trying to get stuff done because for the most part...it is done. Speaking of not trying to get stuff done--I'm in a really tough and demanding semester, so I won't be sewing very much. I'm taking a little break until December or otherwise stated. So we'll see what happens then.
But anyway, Saboten is coming up and I'm most definitely looking forward to it! I'm particularly excited for this year for a number of reasons. One: it's probably the best con in Arizona, two: it's in a new, fabulous location, three: we have fabulous panels selected, four: we have an awesome skit lined up for the masquerade, and five: LiKovacs, the cosplayer I look up to the most is going to be a guest there.
Here's my line-up!

I am happy to tell you all that I finished the cosplay in time and that it was a huge success, it's my favorite Ciel outfit of all time and I am so glad that it turned out so well. Hopefully will I soon get some really good pictures from the Photoshoot so I can show you how it turned out because I am very proud of it.
It's very nice that the con is over. I had a great time but I was never really able to take it easy and am now looking forward to a time of doing what the fuck I want without feeling guilty and telling myself that I have a cosplay to finish.
Tonight will reward myself with some good video games and tomorrow will I do my very best to finish the script for Hetalia 5.

Summer may have already arrived where you are or you might have just gotten a taste of what is to come. This contest’s theme will focus on just that, activities in summer. Show your favorite xenowoman/xenowomen in a summer setting!
It can be everything from sun bathing, to a swimsuit competition or fun and games! Maybe they’re eating an ice cream and happen to spill some of it
Those are just random ideas off the top off my head to get you started. There are so many amazing artists in this group and summer is a wide theme, so I’m sure you can think of something better
Thanks to :iconindiliel: for the idea.

God is Love1 Corinthians 13:1-7God is Love4 years ago in Personal More Like This
New Living Translation (NLT)
1 Corinthians 13
Love Is the Greatest
1 If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn't love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God's secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn't love others, I would be nothing. 3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; [a] but if I didn't love others, I would have gained nothing.
4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.

The A, B, C's of Cosplay
From Antropomorphic to Zebra (or Invader Zim!), the A, B, C's of Cosplay is a 26 week 'workshop' to bring to you, in all its costumed and creative glory, some of the most spectacular and colorful work in the Cosplay gallery.

Cosplay, short for costume play, is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character, or idea. Characters are often drawn from popular fiction in Japan, but recent trends have included American cartoons and science fiction.
Favorite sources include manga, anime, tokusatsu, comic books, graphic novels, video games, hentai and fantasy movies, as well as anthropomorphic manifestations.

Captain America: The First Avenger Project Part 1Hey guys! As what I've mentioned in my previous journal entry, I've changed my course and will be pursuing my dream to create props, prop replicas, and various costumes.Captain America: The First Avenger Project Part 14 years ago in Personal More Like This
The biggest project I'm currently working on would be creating a life size display of Captain America's suit as seen in the 2011 film. Trying to get as close as I can to screen accuracy for this one. No room for cutting corners.
I won't be cosplaying Cap though.
Photo is from the Profiles in History auction
I fell in love with the design the moment I laid my eyes on it. I've come to appreciate the Captain America TFA costume on a whole new different level now that I've studied it very meticulously. I adore military clothing and fashion and upon closer inspection, almost all of the parts of the costume are in fact genuine army articles cobbled together in a different way to form Cap's uniform! I learned so much in watching the featurette on Blu-Ray. Amazing and very thoughtful design!
First up, here are photos of my
