Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on HalloweenArt By :iconraggedy-annedroid:Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on Halloween2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it is Halloween. I am a cosplayer. Here it is, the greatest of all dress up holidays! And I am always disappointed. Here are the top 5 reasons it sucks to be a cosplayer at Halloween.
1) Friends (including friends of friends) come out of nowhere to ask for costumes. They just ask for a little help. On their giant full body armor masterpiece. The week before Halloween. Because you know, you make costumes and it's easy for you. And the price? Well, it's "for a friend" price. Which is always "free" or "I'll pay you $20 never" which boils down to "get you a shot of Jack sometime." Sadface.
2) Costumes in my closet everywhere, but none for Halloween. Yes, I have over 60 costumes. No, none of them will ever be recognized at a Halloween party. One year I dressed as Pris from Blade Runner out on the town, which I thought would b

I visited many countries: China, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Spain, Polish and also nearby Russia and Belorus.I met many cosplayers and hope we will be good friends.
And I want to thank all of you, who supported me and who helped me to evolve during that tough year.

A Spotlight for the CosplayersGame-Art-HQ stands mainly for drawn art, but cosplay is a part of the video game fans community, a part of deviantART and a part of GAHQ as well.A Spotlight for the Cosplayers2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today i want to feature some of the cosplayers here which put not only a lot of work into the costumes they made, they also had the right photographer and in some cases completely fitting environments for their cosplays as well. Most cosplay articles are mostly about the sexy looking female cosplayers, i hope to arrange a nice mix here instead with a different focus.
I think the term Cosplay-Art is only fair for the upcoming photos:
Edward Conway, the protagonist of the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV, cosplayed by Rick Boer from the Netherlands. His earlier MGS cosplays are damn epic.
The right moment..caught here by fiathriel from the USA a photographer who often works with cosplayers, her works are often on the frontpage here on dA.

Things will be a little rocky until we find a winning format, so I'll need to know what you think. Let's begin:

As you can see, these are the storyboard panels for the sequence.
I didn't intend for them to viewed or animated by anyone else, so they're quick and scratchy.
Boards only need to be rendered well enough to convey an idea. If the idea isn't strong enough then the boards are redrawn.
It's that simple.
The idea here is obviously a transf
Some news about Dreams come true surprise !Heya guys !Some news about Dreams come true surprise !10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I hope you're all doing ok. I'm pretty cool as of now even if I'm still very busy !
I just wantedgive you some more information about the Dreams come true surprise and let you know that I'm almost halfway through the coloring process ! Yes there is still a pretty long way to go until I finally complete it but I'm getting there slowly ! I really hope to be done by the end of March if everything goes as I want. I'll start a week vacation soon so that'll probably help me to color faster ! I'm currently coloring everytime I get some free time and sometimes it's not more than 30 minutes a day but it's already something.
So don't worry I won't let you down even if the recent Naruto chapters are giving me a hard time to not grab a pen and draw some small Narusaku sketches (and believe me it's hard to resist). I'll write another journal when I'm nearing the end of the coloring process in order to tell you to be ready and explain how it's gonna work !!
Please stay tuned !!

Silver liningI decided to write a journal as a tiny bit of a follow up on my health situation,Silver lining5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
as a lot of people have been concerned about me in the past few weeks, and have been asking me how I was.
Up until now, there honestly haven't been a lot of updates.
The situation was pretty much the same. I've gotten new medication for the migraines. It took another few days off the next attack, but unfortunately also came with very bad and serious side effects that made me very sick and impacted my life greatly. Yes, I've been absent at times. And yes, I've been agitated at times --more than I'd usually be. Though some of those trolls could probably even drive a sane person to madness.
Last week I finally received some good news from the hospital.
After more than 3 months or waiting, making phone calls, negotiating with insurances and whatnot... the waiting is finally over. I'm starting my rehabilitation treatm

How difficult it always is, to get stones for a costume in the right color, size and shape.
That's why I uploaded this tutorial today: How to make gems.
How to work step by step:
What materials do you need:
- resin and hardener
- tinting paint
- cups and spoons/ chopsticks to stir
- maybe a scale
- silicone mold for/ of stones (I bought it on etsy)
- aluminium foil
