SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?Every single cosplayer in the world has one painful problem that we can all relate to: we're always broke. Always.SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Fabric, thread, machines, paints, wood, tools, thermoplastics, LEDs, mould castings, brushes, dyes, wigs, make-up, contacts, boots, prosthetics, convention tickets, travel expenses, luggage, skin care, gym... the list goes on and on. Every single cent we earn, we constantly throw it all back into making our beloved costumes and feeling good for a few hours while stressing for months prior-hand. Non-cosplayers may not get it, but we do. For us, it's not a sacrifice. The chance to hone our creative spirit and create something from nothing is a rewarding life experience. Some think that the cost of an outfit is more valuable compared to medication and psychological sessions.
But like it not, we've all gotta come to a conclusion that the hobby must come to an end for us one day, and to have some money saved up for your next step in life is a greater advantage than having nothi
My dog appearedIts a glorious day, my dog its a chihuahua female, she was really old, so she was really sad, right now im really happy.

Was once banned on DA for 3 weeksYeah cos im just cool like that! I was once banned on Deviantart for 3 weeks for inappropriate content. Its kinda like saying I've been to jail (Without the butt pain), prison changes a person!Was once banned on DA for 3 weeks2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Heres a picture of me when I was banned on DA.
This was back like 4 years ago at least, when my drawing style was still vector ish looking. Those who watched me back in the day might have seen it, I think it even had around 400 favourites before it got taken off, it was a drawing of Batman in the batcave with naked girls on his monitors and you see Batman with his dick out (There's even a bit of semen coming out..). Anyway half a year later after it was posted up, some guy (or a girl i never found out who) decided to report on me and DA took the image off as well as banned me for around 3 weeks. I was a bit angry.
But this changed me, ok this journal is not about the time I spent in jail and how cool that was lol. But about how this changed my philosophy and personality, through this experience

I started this journey with a head full of ideas and no game plan on how to execute it. After talking to some local pros both online and in person, I started getting an understanding of what I have to do
Do some anthology stories.
This helped me hammer out my writing style, learn how to work with a team of people and get published for the first time.
My Anthology Stories:

Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank***WARNING: THIS IS A SUPER LONG AND DETAILED POST!***Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank3 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.

I just wrote this journal to speak out to the cosplay community.
There is an epidemic of hatred going around targeted at some of the beautiful cosplay ladies we've all been seeing.
If you have a minute, please click the link and give it a read, I really hope it helps some people to stop stereotyping.

Have a great day everyone, remember you're all beautiful

As of now, my brain is too fried to write up a proper journal entry about our volcano GARventure, and one of my usual event reports (as you can see on the right side of my journal) about Cosplay Mania, but I'd like to take this chance to share a part of our lecture of sorts at the Cosmania cosplay workshop last Sunday.
China snowpeachdrop, Kat moonlightflight, El rosiael and I were invited to talk about general cosplay planning, like fabric selection, wig styling, cosplay makeup and photography. My friends might post the other parts, but for now here is our silly guide about posing for cosplay photos, and convention etiquette. The actual presentation was actually longer, and with lots more examples, but here is a condensed rundown of what we talked about, fo

Thank you all for your kind words and kind expressions. I will do my best to not disappoint you guys and I will continue to try my best to give this fandom what it deserves.
Thank you everything. With that:

IndefatigableIndefatigable2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Doing the Crew of the U.S.S. Indefatigable was absolute pure fun.
I thought it was going to be difficult and there were a few moments where I thought the image was going to crash Daz Studio and leave me up the creek with out a paddle. I got very slow towards the end there, but it didn't crash and that full crew image is complete rendered in camera. The crew, the ship and the background.
So pleased I am with it that I'm doing individual portraits of the crew and am rolling them out at a fair pace.

Also, I'm translating the Indefatigable's crew to the Caliburn Universe's TNG Era, hence why they are wearing TNG uniforms and not Star Trek Online Uniforms. In the Caliburn Universe Starfleet keeps the TNG uniforms alongside the early-DS9/Voyager ones and doesn't c

Ships of the LineHi folks!Ships of the Line2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Probably every 3D hobbyist Trekkie's dream is to get their work landed in the Ships of the Line calendar. I know that I'm not in the same league as the pros who do most of the SOTL images, but I would like my work to be tried in this great challenge. The problem is, I have no idea how to contact Doug Drexler. Not being in the illustration business and leaving an ocean away makes finding a contact a bit difficult. So if any of you know how I can contact Mr. Drexler, please help me. It is highly possible that my stuff will be refused outright, but still, at least I would like a chance. This is what all underdogs want, right?
So, if you folks know how to contact Mr. Drexler, please share it with me.
The Age of Exploration is Not DeadIt's easy to look at NASA's current activities and feel like the age of great exploration is behind us or at least on indefinite hold. But you would be looking in the wrong direction. James Cameron (yeah, THAT James Cameron) is in the midst of a real world adventure that, in some ways, rivals a return to the Moon. And in other ways exceeds it! He's piloting an innovative, cutting-edge submersible to the bottom of the Mariana Trench later this year a feat not replicated since its initial attainment by the Trieste in January 1960.The Age of Exploration is Not Dead2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Working with the National Geographic, Cameron is piloting the submersible "Deep Challenger". In recent test dives he has already set the record for the deepest solo dive of any human and the Deep Challenger is now officially the deepest diving manned vehicle on the planet. This is not a "stunt", it's real science. Project partners include the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, JPL, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and the universities of Hawaii and Gu
No more censoring!For the last 8-9 years of cosplaying I have been censoring myself with what costumes I do, what photos I post, even what poses I will do in fear of stepping on toes and/or upsetting someone. I am done allowing the thoughts and opinions of people that I don't even know dictate my ability to enjoy this hobby. I am done being paranoid that someone is talking about me behind my back and I am done not allowing myself to fully enjoy this hobby!No more censoring!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This hobby is about having fun whether you are a closet cosplayer or you make a living off of it. Too long have I said this but never was able to fully feel it's truth. If people want to be drama llamas because they are insecure with their own abilities, or are just plain bored, fine, but I'm not going to let it affect me any longer. I've let it control me too long already and I'm through!
