Vocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.Jin's Flower Wreath Process
Sometime last May, Kat moonlightflight and I cosplayed our favorite Vocaloid song, "Just Be Friends".
Their outfits seem simple at a glance, but that actually makes things more complicated sometimes. Hahah. Despite Luka's dress looking like something you could probably find in a mall, Charmie yaoiangel14 made the dress from scratch exactly as it looked in the artwork, just for Kat moonlightflight. Kat and I also did our best with the part of their outfits that had the most amount of detail (which also happens to be our favorite parts) the flower wreaths.
I have some pictures of the progress of my wreath, so I thought I'd share them. This probably isn't the best method of going about this, but this is how I did mine and I found it pretty easy. (I wish I could have taken more photos or a video, but to be honest I wasn't quite sure I'd pull this off at first. Hahah!)
Mesti Datang! The HobbyCon 2013 Experience!Earlier this year, my friends and I were invited to be overseas guests for HobbyCon in Sabah, Malaysia.Mesti Datang! The HobbyCon 2013 Experience!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Time flew by very fast, and before we knew it...
Our first day was spent doing a lot of eating, thanks to our guide Alyssa I will justify it as us fueling up for an action-packed weekend! We tried nasi lemak for the first time (LOVED IT), had some shaved ice desserts after, then a big dinner of clay pot rice, stir-fry noodles with clams, really tasty chicken wings, etc. and THEN we still raided Pick N' Pay for our midnight snacks because we love convenience stores and we wanted to try things we don't have in Manila.
We planned our cosplays ahead with Team Kachang Puteh, the guests from Singapore. Our theme for the first day of HobbyCon was Shingeki no Kyojin!

How I cosplayed the cast of Free! sort-of-tutorialGroup cosplay, forever alone style! Yeah, that's all me.How I cosplayed the cast of Free! sort-of-tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this post, I'll get into how I did each one!
Intro, and some bad old pictures
For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face?
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al

News about TRC doujin reprintsThank you all, who are interested in my TRC fanbook reprint, for filling out the polls. It certainly helped me to come to a decision:News about TRC doujin reprints2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Lüléil" will be reprinted as a standalone book. Same edition as the first run, no changes.
The compilation book will contain all my other TRC stories ever published between 2008~2011 (about 150 pages), namely:
Christmas MemoriesFrailWinter Sun (from "Road to Nowhere" anthology)ForgottenEclipseCloverfield (from "Town of Wind" anthology)
"Eclipse" will be completely remastered for the b/w edition, since it was originaly printed in color. The below example shows what I mean - I will basically redraw the entire story in normal manga style (inked and toned).
And this time I'll choose a readable font size. xD;I also plan to add a brand new one-shot story to the compilation, about 10 pages. ^^
And of course, the compilation will have a brand new cover art.
I don't want to commit myself to any deadlines or book pric

The Book that Travels the WorldToday I want to invite everyone to join a wonderful project, I was recently told about it and I think it's a beautiful thing to be a part of: a book that travels the world collecting art from every place it visits.The Book that Travels the World3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The project was started by Traumfaengerin-Wish with this idea: "I want to create a book that travels around the world, from one deviant to another. Each deviant can add his part to the book, a drawing, poem,a little story, photos, etc.
I want to reach every corner of the world with this book, to see how wide our network reaches, to let other people see how wide we are connected, to let them be able to touch, to hold the proof in their hands."
Two books are already traveling and a third book is on the making. 216 people already signed in, the books will visit 52 countries, and counting! Everyone is welcome to join and share some of their art with people from all over the world. Once the book is finished there's talks about getting it published!
