Last year I visited a craft fair and discovered in the paper decoration / paper crafting a super great new material.
Maybe some of you know it.
But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.
It can be used for paper decoration, for gemstones, paint and much more.
In this tutorial I made a kind of decoration for costumes versions/ setting f

If youve been inspired to customize your own clothes and dont know where to start, here are some ideas:
1. The thrift store is your best friend. Youd be surprised by all the amazing things you can find there. I recently got a beautiful jacket with a corset backing for just five dollars.
2. Screen printing is a great way to put your own designs on clothes. If youre feeling ambitious, check out this video tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ee_8IMx0uMo&featurelayList&p=7000A6A25CCD6ACC&index=14 If youre like me and prefer an easier, quicker approach, I
Rules of Existence... and... stuff.Rule 1 : you exist. nothing you can do to change that, so get used to it.Rules of Existence... and... stuff.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rule 2 :you get what you give. so give what you would like to recieve.
Rule 3: there is no good or bad, only seperate perspectives.
Rule 4: every moment is an individual and seperate universe unto itself.
each and every second is indivisible as its own universe, its own fraction of existence.
remember, people of earth.
You are not your job.
You are not that expensive car you are saving for.
You are not even someones child or parent...
You are not a game character.
You are not a movie star, nor should you ever want to be one.
ready for this?
You are actually an undying, ever powerful and ultimately omnipotent beings,
renting out space on one of the hardest worlds out there.
Our envisionments of god are an inward spiral, simply a way of understanding our own massive consiousness that we are without these bodies of muscle and bone.
You are you....
and that is the most amazing of all possibilities,

5 Ways to Un-Cliché' a ClichéEDIT: If you like this journal entry, check out The Sarcastic Guide to Writing ebook http://www.amazon.com/The-Sarcastic-Guide-Writing-ebook/dp/B005TOCC1C for exclusive content on world-building, character, and dialogue!5 Ways to Un-Cliché' a Cliché3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Do your damn research. I can't stress this enough. We live in the freaking Information Age, and the concept of Googling is an alien one to too many people. While I could easily go on a rant about anti-intellectualism, I'll rein it in and say that cliché' is largely anachronistic. People use them because they're familiar, not necessarily what's true. When I started world-building for my Western steampunk/cattlepunk trilogy, one of the characters was the equivalent of a Chinese immigrant worker. So I read everything I could get my hands on about what it was like to be a Chinese immigrant worker. Wikipedia articles, fiction, and non-fiction. I also read authors like Lawrence Yep

Somehow, this silly page has hit 9 million views!
Just to be absolutely clear, I do not think the views make me any better than anyone else. I mean, I'm sure some of those are from people who don't even like me. But I guess my point is that it's crazy to imagine that this page has been opened up that many times, and I can't help wondering where all these hits have come from. And I just feel so grateful that a select few people in those millions have come to be irreplaceable friends to me.
It's been a wild ride with all of you guys through all this time. To me this isn't just a page where I simply showcase my artwork or the cosplay photos my friends and I come up with. This site has opened up so many opportunities for me, and has introduced me to some of the most wonderful people I've met in my life.
It's been a journey, and my interactions with the people here have taught me more than I can express.

We decided to make this version of Setsuna cause uniforms really suit me ;D and we made lots of them in the past, so it was a good basis to start. Although the uniform may seem quite simple it was really hard work, especially getting all the metal pieces clean handled.

Tips para posar con tu cosplayBasado en el tutorial de *behindinfinity http://behindinfinity.deviantart.com/, basicamente traducido xD con algunos aditamentosTips para posar con tu cosplay5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Cosplay no es solo hacer y usar el traje, no nos podemos olvidar de la actitud.
Una parte importante dle cosplay es personificar al personaje, desde la expresión coorporal hasta la facial y la personalidad. Tienes que conocer tu personaje para personificarlo mejor!. Ademas, cuando usas cosplay en una convención es inevitable que quieran tomarte fotos, la foto que tomen es como te recordara la persona que la tomo y las que la vean pues regularmente estas acaban en internet, asi que veamos formas de mejorar esto!
Una sonrisa irreal y fuera de las que utiliza el personaje arruina la foto. Busca imagenes de referencia para que veas que expresiones o poses deberias tomar a la hora de las fotos.

On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a

1. How did you come up with the room guardian concept?
The idea caught fire when a friend and I were walking through an antique store. On one of the bookshelves sat two stuffed foxes wearing riding clothes. I contemplated buying them because one could convince themselves that their expressionless stares were actually seeing and watching over the room. It was as if they were alive though they were a long way from being realistic. My contemplation came to an end when I realized I could spend less money and have a better one if I just made it myself. That is where

or email to sonteen12[at]hotmail.com with "wig commissions" or something similar as a subject. Thank you
Hello~ I'm finally taking orders for wig commissions. Please read the info below if you're interested in getting a wig styled by me. ^^ I'm only taking limited orders per time period since I need to work on my own cosplays as well.
Red-cluster Wig Commissions
I'm just a wig lover who might just be "a little" obsessed with wig styling. My aim in doing wig commissions is to provide fellow cosplayers with wigs that best suited to them. I can't promise to make the wigs "exactly" as the wigs of *insert cosplayer's name here* But I can promise that I will make the wig that looks good on you and remains accurate to the original style of the character you choose to cosplay.
