But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.

Freelancing, The Art of Finding Work. Finding work as an artist can be a frustrating mystery, I know it was for me as I starting climbing the ranks of the industry. I wanted help others with what I have learned along the way. Some ideas here are more tested theory and some are just good business. This guide is geared towards people who want to make freelance art their career, but the tips can still apply to anyone who wants to find work to do what they love. The arts industries are competitive, but technology, small business, and crowdsource funding have brought a ton of work to our fingertips. You just have to keep searching and honing your craft.

WHAT TIME IS IT? AAAADVENTURE TIME COSPLAY ...TIMEAdventure Time cosplay at Fantasy Quest 2WHAT TIME IS IT? AAAADVENTURE TIME COSPLAY ...TIME2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A couple of weeks ago, we attended an event called Fantasy Quest 2. (The very first Fantasy Quest was when we cosplayed Harry Potter characters.)
It was a pretty special day for us because four years ago, we had our first shoot and bonding day with Ysabel SavingSunlight at the venue, Fernwood Gardens.
We've been really into Adventure Time, so many months ago we decided we'd do AT cosplay, and that Fantasy Quest would be a fun opportunity to do so. It feels weird how we had been looking forward to this event for ages, and now it's over!
some were taken by me and my friends using my camera

Harry Potter wand tutorial + costume snapshotsHarry Potter wand progress/tutorialHarry Potter wand tutorial + costume snapshots4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not sure if this can really count as a tutorial because I feel I didn't take enough photos, but I thought I'd share how I made my wand for Harry Potter cosplay. It's made with things I had lying around at home. Miguel :iconmerkymerx: helped me out a lot with his suggestions!
I started with these A paintbrush, a hot glue/gluegun stick, some tape, a brown paper bag, and some foil. Paintbrushes are very good bases for wands because of the shape and material. This once I particularly fancied because of the beautiful color and finish of the handle.
The brush was too short by itself, so I had to extend the other end somehow. Feeling very silly, I stuck the hot glue stick into the head of the brush, right in the middle of the bristles, and taped it into place. Sadly I did not get a photo of how it looked then. I tore of a bit of the brown paper bag and wrapped it around the glue stick for added stability, and taped that into place as well. (Yo

THE AWKWARD CAUCASIAN GUIDE TO TAOBAO.HOW TO USE http://www.taobao.com BECAUSE I HAVE ANSWERED THIS SO MANY TIMES IT'S NOT FUNNY.THE AWKWARD CAUCASIAN GUIDE TO TAOBAO.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Q. I don't speak Chinese, how do I find what I'm looking for?
This is probably the most frequent question I see in regards to Taobao. This question has a three part answer, really.
Part One: Browser.
For people that ask me personally, I tend to recommend using Google Chrome as your browser (at least for Taobao) purely because it has an auto-translate feature. It does translate into some horrendous Engrish, but it does clarify some things a little. If you don't have it and are too lazy to Google it, here is the download link: https://www.google.com/chrome/?brand=CHMA&utm_campaign=en&utm_source=en-ha-aunz-ct&utm_medium=ha.
Part Two: Searching.
If you're looking for something specific, but can't find it, then it's best to conduct your own search. Google translate simple terms such as "red" or "dress"
Another way is to copy and paste the title of a similar item into the search bar.
Cosplay: we've lost the meaning behind it.Most cosplayers on Facebook may have come across some drama that unfolded on a 'cosplay page', but for those who haven't I'll show you.Cosplay: we've lost the meaning behind it.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This picture was posted up, and has since been deleted off their page due to the massive backlash. I can't even begin to comprehend what made them post it up. And I can't tell if the picture is pointing at overweight people, westerners, or both. Either way it's sickening.
Time and time again I see this bullshit. Even searching up cosplays on google, you see images of cosplayers being ridiculed for a 'bad choice'. Yes, I've said many times that one should choose their costumes wisely, but that should NEVER limit someone. I think we all have to remember why we cosplay- why we're all part of this subculture.
