Lightning Returns Demo Second Hand ImpressionsThe Nico Nico live stream of Square Enix's Lighthing Saga presentation cut off just before the best part: an actual first look at the gameplay in Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII.Lightning Returns Demo Second Hand Impressions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
After high level introductions to the game from Motomu Toriyama, Yuji Abe, and Isamu Kamikokuryo, which you can see here (http://andriasang.com/con2jl/ffxiii_lightning_videos/), Square Enix turned off the cameras, told everyone in the audience to do the same, then showed a first trailer. This was followed by a gameplay demonstration.
The trailer provided an introduction to the game's world and its time progression system. One sequence showed a time counter: "00/02:54:23." Famitsu speculates that by clearing quests, you can increase this timer.
Another sequence showed Lightning, dressed in a new outfit, in pursuit of the criminal in a murder incident. She pursues a group of suspicious people, making use of cover actions -- hiding behind walls, for instance. During the presentation, Toriyama explained that

My 1 year and 5 months at Cosplay CommunityFirst and foremost i missed cosplaying...My 1 year and 5 months at Cosplay Community2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So im still a novice in the cosplay world,, my 1st cosplay was in Metro Comic Con 2010, it was fun for me because it was my 1st time to go in an cosplay event. Lots of Character from anime, game, cartoon came to life and for me it was really a fullfilling event i had met my 1st cosplay family namely Philippine Anime Otaku,. at 1st it was fun and we where planning so much for the group but time came that some of the admins was like dictating all of us of what gonna cosplay next ahhh i think its group cosplay. they don't take comments or suggestions. so i was out of place and begin starting all over again.
after 1month that was september i've attended an event in Lyceum there a cute cosplayer from shugo chara approached me and ask if i could accompany her since she was alone also, we where chatting and asking about cosplay stuff when she met there her cosplay twins and it turned that cosplayer ciarra mae (rozen maiden) became my cosplay child
Jump Magazine Crystarium System ScanJump has the first real look at FINAL FANTASY XIII-2′s Crystarium system.Jump Magazine Crystarium System Scan2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you recall from FINAL FANTASY XIII, the Crystarium was used to essentially level up your characters, however, the system was capped to a certain point in each chapter. Now in XIII-2, the Crystarium is completely open, allowing players to level up as much as they choose.
As you can see in the pictures, the Crystarium itself is shaped in the form of Noel and Serah’s weapons. It appears there are no longer “tiers.” You still have to spend CP to gain new abilities, of course, but this refined system makes it a lot easier. By completing certain conditions of specific roles, for example, you’ll be able to select from several bonuses for your character.

News About Final Fantasy VIIFor those of you who are PC gamers, I've got great news for you all:News About Final Fantasy VII1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Square-Enix has announced that they are re-releasing Final Fantasy VII for the computer!
It will have new achievements and systems in it to help the player, but no word as to whether or not the graphics will get an overhaul, or if they will be the same block-graphics we know and love from the original discs.
It will be available in the direct Square-Enix store, but no word yet as to WHEN it will be available.
Perhaps Square-Enix isn't as deaf to the fans as we realized, or perhaps this is an attempt to satisfy us temporarily?
Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
Interview: Yuegene Fay (TH)Interview: Yuegene Fay (TH)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You would never guess that Yuegene Fay from Thailand was a former bookworm. Visual kei bands have changed her looks and not only; she put her perfectionism into play and joined another dimension where the popularity of comic book characters joins the local and unique version to approach and tailor them. Not only the visual graphic world of games and manga, but also the musical world has become overtly visual in expression and image. It is yet another golden proof that Vocaloid project has a huge influence over the current cosplaying imagery. We should remember that Asia does not equal Japan, and that Japanese pop has been skilfully transformed and expanded into regional styles and fan communities.

Tablet, Requests, Live streams, and New WatchersOkay. First thing's first. I got a tablet! Now with my tool of deviance I will wreak havoc ALL ABOUND! Yeah. A good friend of mine sold me his new, well new to me, bamboo pen. Good condition, hardly used.

NEXT! Requests. I'm taking them, still. Once I expand my fanbase a little more, I'll start doing more elaborate works for commissions. Pokefusions are free right now, but soon they'll be $5 a pop and $8 for both fusions. But you can ask for anything. If I can't get it done with my tablet, be assured that the art of pencil and paper have no escaped me.
Live streams~ Now since I did my very first, and shall I say rather successful, live stream last night, I've decided it shall become a regular thing. Now I might not yet have the fanbase yet to do them really often. Or maybe I have a fanbase small enough that I ought to do them more often. I dunno. You guys t

Just want to let you guys know that since I work full time and am pretty busy outside of work as well, I don't get online much anymore. I'll usually look at comments posted on new photos for few days after they've been uploaded, and I'll occasionally go through my notes, but anything more than that is a bit overwhelming for me to keep up with.
Anytime I post a new costume, I try to give as much detailed info as I can, so if you have a costume construction question, just look through those photos and I'm sure you'll find it! If you still can't find an answer, send me a note, though it might be a while before I get to it.
One of my jobs at Arda is to answer wig questions, so I'm usually not motivated to answer the same kinds of questions when I'm off the clock as well. XD If it's a wig question, feel free to shoot me

Want to plan a cosplay shoot, but somehow things just don't turn out right? Maybe the photos were not how you visualised them, or that the photographer seemed to be extra grumpy, or you just don't know what's going on? Read on for how to get the best out of your cosplay shoot:
The 4 Ps:
Having a plan is essential and should take up the most time overall in your shoot. Speak to the photographers closely, because they will be the ones producing the photos that will be the end result; make sure they are aware of the concept and background of the series you're shooting. Some photographers will want to do their own research prior to the shoot (reading the manga/watching the anime/looking up reference photos) - so make sur

I get asked a lot of questions about these cosplay photos that most of you have come to know me for. Sometimes it's about the techniques we use, requests for tips and advice for other people who want to do something similar. Other times, the comments come from people who aren't familiar with cosplay, but are curious about it and are interested to know more. So I thought of making this li
