There’s a hint of fairy dust in the air at the Firefly Path workshop where JoEllen Elam (Lillyxandra) brings her fairytale costume creations to life.
Weaving her magic through every piece of the enchanting princess gowns and fantastical fairie wears she creates, JoEllen is here to show that Cinderella isn’t the only one with a fairy godmother. Armed with only a love for cosplaying, a passion for costuming and a can—do attitude, this self taught costume designer beg
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

this was your doing and you have my sincere thanks.
i did not expect this. sunstone was never supposed to be a moneymaker project and will continue to be a free webcomic to it's very end. but your support meant a lot
last year was tough...
you noticed that my output was significantly lower...well... in the number of strips, but taking into consideration the much longer strips of chapter 4, difference is not that drastic.
there was a reason for this. i kept alluding to a family health crisis. i prefer to keep these things to myself
but now that this is behind us, i can say what made a mess of the year
my mom was diagnosed with a severe heart condition. day before book 1 came out she was admitted to hospital to have stents implanted and the procedure was a success.
last year i was operating under a constant prepare for the worst case scenario kind of pressure.

The killjoys of dAYou know these people. "Japan isn't that great." "Wolves aren't that cool." "Yaoi sucks." "(Popular thing) is overrated!" Etc. People who express these opinions loudly, not just because they feel that way, but out of spite for the people who do like these things.The killjoys of dA4 years ago in Personal More Like This
When dealing with them, remember this - a person who tries to bring you down for simply enjoying something is usually just attempting to prove that they are a better, more sophisticated person than you are. And in that very act is the proof that they aren't nearly as sophisticated and mature as they wish they were.
So fuck 'em. Like what you like, and don't change under pressure. Because in my eyes, giving up something you like just because it makes you look like a stereotype is weak - holding on to it and proving you're more than that is strong.

Mermaids- the New Wave In Pop Culture?
Over the past few years mermaids have been swimming there way into pop culture leaving their mark in the art world, the literature world, and the movie world. Women are taking up jobs educating and performing as mermaids while costume designers and cosplay artists are enjoying the challenge of creating realistic looking tails. This journal feature is going to share with you a little bit of the "mermaiding" world while drawing reference to the many ways in which mermaids are popping up on deviantART!

ManlyCosplay Feature -BeardsThere is nothing quite as manly as fine facial hair. Many of the manliest characters sport impressive beards, and it requires a special kind of cosplayer to pull off such a character well.ManlyCosplay Feature -Beards4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are some of ManyCosplay's favourite bearded cosplays from our galleries!
Leonidas. Beard. Enough said.
Even Kratos' beard looks angry and aggressive.
Barret is known for his massive size, artificial gun arm …and his epic beard!
Hawke pimpin’s a well-trimmed beard.
What would Ezio be without his beard?
I don’t think I have to add any explanation for this one. Epic beard is epic!
Curly beards FTW! Also, an excellent cosplay of a classic series!
On sheer volume, you cannot beat this beard;
Ganondorfs beard is a classic:
Asuma knows scraggly beards.

well let's start with the raw armor parts, completely unpainted.
I used WOBLAS FINEST ART as my material. It's a thermoplastic material with a mix out of plastic and wood. It's close to Wonderflex, but thicker, more durable and it's easier to make round shapes l shoulders, knees and chest plates. You can also melt the material together and use it as thermoplastic modeling clay!
This is my VERY first armor and even a bloody begin

If you like this article, please add it to your favorites to help spread the love for the art and artists within.
On my profile page, I feature a new deviation every day (or two or three). The piece is usually something that caught my eye. Could be an amazing digital painting, a fun stamp, a quick photograph that made me smile, perhaps a piece for a weekly theme, whatever. However, it moved me enough to share it with my visitors. Below is a list of the artists which I featured during July 2012. I am showcasing different pieces from their gallery in the hope of showing them a bit more love.

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!

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.

So as cosplayers, we decided to contribute one: Shit Cosplayers Say
We have more content but ran out of time, these were everything filmed in one day. Our gifted actress was very game on everything we asked her to, including looking ugly and changing her clothes for each scene.
Please leave a comment to share your cosplayer experiences over at the video. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did making!
