Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-upBasic Information:Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-up2 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
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 wig2 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

There are a lot of poor starving artists.
Do you ever watch the first few episodes of American Idol? I do; it's fascinating television. So many delusional people in such a short amount of time. It's glorious! A good friend of mine once said that the reason there are so many contestants that are absolutely abhorrent singers is because all of those people didn't have someone that loved them enough to tell them they're no good at singing. (Either that or the poor schmucks simply refused to believe the well-meaning people that might have tried to educate the cacophanous vocalists). We live in such a politically correct, 'I don't want to be responsible for stamping out your dreams' society that we're no longer honest with each other. Hence, beautiful trainwreck television in the form of phenomenally bad singing.

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.

How ya'll been? So recently as you know I've been on a bit of a health kick. Yeah... I slightly broke it (for a month omg) XD But what has my health kick got to do with the topic of this journal? WELL! I was thinking about it today and I've seen so many comments on cosplayer's photos over the years that make me quite upset to see. There are comments like "you're fat", "you're boobs are too small" or "you're ugly". Or even the opposite of "you're too thin", "you're boobs are too big and saggy" or "your face doesn't suit this character". So as you can tell it'll be rather ranty so if you don't wanna read that's ok XD
When I first started cosplaying I got this a couple of times and yes, it hurts. It upsets me to see that people go out of their way to make someone feel bad for all the hard work they've put into a costume. So what image does everyone expect to see when cosplayers' cosplay? They expect them to look exactly like this character they're cosplaying, right? Well

This is a photo of me when I was at school. I wasn't the best looking fella and wasn't very smart either, all I did was play Pokemon and daydream, actually I was pretty much setting myself up for great humiliation and constant bullying with what I do lol. But one thing kept my head above water, I used to draw... a LOT. I used to draw in my little pink diary as well as even drawing in my homework. I just really loved.. to draw. And you know what? I gained a lot of respect for that. I wasn't one of those popular kids at school but I actually got along with ALL the stereotype groups, I got along with the popular guys, the nerds, the hot girls, the Hongkies, the Korean breakdancers, the wannabe gangsters, I even got alo

........At work I tend to hear things from costumers.........2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not eavesdropping I just overhead things especially if they are being loud or talking while I'm either waiting on them to order or serving or taking their plates. Or if I'm near them at all.
I try not to but sometimes I do, especially if it catches my interest.
Like what happened today.
A family had come in and sat in my section.
A mother, father and son.
So did what I'm suppose to do, what every waiter does: Groan, grab some menus and put on a fake smile.
Got there drinks, took their order and blah, blah,blah.
They were near one of the counters which is where I hangout when it's a slow day.
Which it kinda was so me and another worker just sat around and we were talking and joking.
Then something they said caught my ears.
They asked their son about school and he muttered. "It's okay."
He sounded kinda out if it, and his voice was kinda blank.
Tried shrugging it off.
None of my bussiness.
Then they asked how his girlfrien

Worbla's Finest Art is a thermoplastic that's ultra cosplayer-friendly. It cuts easily with a knife or a pair of scissors.

The LORD Has No Equal
12 Who else has held the oceans in his hand?
Who has measured off the heavens with his fingers?
Who else knows the weight of the earth
or has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale?
13 Who is able to advise the Spirit of the LORD?[a]
Who knows enough to give him advice or teach him?

Does he need instruction about what is good?
Did someone teach him what is right

After Gold Coast Supanova 2013 (LOTSAPHOTOS)Hi its innocent yet perverted childish yet wise Rycecake with honey on top. I shouldve made this journal ages ago but I got really busy and tired.. the time has come however for this journal update. I was in another state for Supanova the cultural comic book and movies convention, went to Gold Coast, the place is like a paradise ok. If Sydney is like Kanto and Melbourne is like Johto then Gold Coast would be Hoenn. And this time I didnt go by myself... in fact LOTS of people came, I was with 3 high school friends as well as my bro :iconthiskidthatkid: and her friend Shawin, we had 6 people in a 4 people hotel room (Dont tell anyone). Oh gosh this trip is so much more different when there are other folks around, highlights includes Shawin (whos a professional dancer) teaching me a few moves on the dance floor, first time getting a kiss from a watcher, ordering LOTS AND LOTS of meat for the hot pot cos its unlimited refill, me trying to cook a pizza but failing miserably, and also goingAfter Gold Coast Supanova 2013 (LOTSAPHOTOS)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
