5 Simple Tips to Better CosplayBefore I start, I just want to clarify that I'm by no means an expert at all this. I've only been cosplaying a year and I still have a lot to learn, but my tutorials and cosplays get positive responses and I'm often asked how I do certain things, so I decided to put up a few tips that have helped me get where I am.
1. Find a good cosplay photographer
I cannot stress how important this is. I've seen way too many great cosplayers who only have shots taken by their friends or family and it makes me sad their missing out on the attention they could get towards their cosplay if they just had some good photos.
How do I find a good photographer?
Pay attention to cosplayers from your area, whether it be Cosplay.com, WorldCosplay, Facebook or right here on DeviantArt. If you find someone who has a cosplay picture that you really like, ask them who did their photo shoot and ask for their contact information. If you're at a convention, look out for people with expensive camer
Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise

Ms. Male Character - Tropes vs Women in Video GameI hate talking about Anita Sarkeesian, but primarily because there’s such anger induced hatred of the woman herself that people tend to gloss over what she’s saying and ignore the bigger issue by nitpicking her to death. That’s very frustrating for me because whenever I talk about her videos or so much as refer to her by name, the response is almost magical.

It’s almost impossible to talk about the subject matter (which is the actual issue that needs to be discussed) without devolving into a venom spewing hate storm against the messenger (Anita).

That being the case, I feel the need to preface this journal with some requests. Please for the love of god if you are going to respond to this journal
