Yaya's Cosplay Tips - Part 1I had to have emergency surgery this weekend to remove my appendix, so not only did I miss HeroesCon but I'm also on forced bed rest for the next little while. That means I had lots of time to write up some tips for cosplayers to prepare for a convention.Yaya's Cosplay Tips - Part 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tips on how to safely navigate a convention as a cosplayer - Part 1
Part 2 will be posted later this week, so check back soon!
So...You Want To Be A (cosplay) Photographer?Ladies and Gentlemen, due to an overwhelming response of "Yes" on one of my latest polls (I think it was something like 35-3 in favor), I'm going to write this journal about my experiences when it comes to photography, and, in all honesty, a majority of it will be aimed at cosplay photography given that that is what I have done the most of since I decided to get a bit more serious about photography. I also feel like it is very important to say that I'm not at all, in any way, saying that this is the "right" way of doing things. What I write about in this journal, and what I say are my own opinions, formed from 4 years and multiple conventions/outside shoots worth of experience. You all are more than welcome to agree or disagree with me, and I invite you to share your thoughts in the comments section, as well as ask me any questions you might have (PLEASE keep it respectful, folks).So...You Want To Be A (cosplay) Photographer?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Have you ever been inspired, and I mean truly?
I know a lot of times we forget that deep feeling that comes up when we watch see or hear something truly wonderful, the thing that touches our hearts in the most tender way.
For me it's whenever I hear the song, "Brothers" which I know a lot of people might have said before, but for me there's just no taking that magic away from it, no matter how many times you hear it or have heard people talk about it.
I think in that way a lot of the Anime we watch is not just because it's fun and inviting, or that it's unique and interesting. A lot of why we love Anime is for those subtle emotions that come along with it, that's a lot of what makes Fullmetal Alchemist stand out, all those tender moments that really strike a cord with us and inspire us to create.
It's not just that Series but in a lot of other ones in the genera, Dragon Ball Z is intimidating but will surprise you. The joy of fiction and imagination is it flows so

Review: Alto Saotome uniform from MicCostumesHey, guys! Sorry I still haven't been able to update about Tux Team's recent cosplay adventures! As some of you might know, I really like to take my time to write those out. February turned out to be way busier than I expected!

Nowadays I like to make little blog posts and share snapshots on my Tumblr behindinfinity.tumblr.com If you like, you could follow me there too.
I've still got a lot of messages and emails to answer. (Especially yours, Rez!) Sorry to keep you all waiting! I really just find it difficult to write letters when I can't give my full attention. Loooots to do nowadays. I'm very thankful, but I do wish I also had more time to write journal entries.
I've got a little something to share right now, though!

Feminism, etc. vs. Roosterteeth(If I don't have all of my facts straight, then please notify me so that I can change this journal entry. Thank you.)Feminism, etc. vs. Roosterteeth2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so you guys know that the guys in RT make a lot of jokes. They make a lot of offensive jokes to be honest: jokes about rape, self-harm, disorders, etc.
These jokes are not okay. I do not care about how famous RoosterTeeth is. Fame does not excuse any of those things.
Whenever Ray says "Wow, that's so retarded," that is not okay.
Whenever Geoff says "Go kill yourself," that is also not okay.
Do not try to defend them and say that they've never said these things as I have heard them with my own two ears. And it pisses me off.
And this so called game that Gavin and Geoff were playing, "Connect the Hots", is not okay. It is not okay to objectify women. It is not okay to harass women. Following a woman around in a car in the early ours of the morning is terrifying for said woman. She does not know who these people could be; they co

Yet we all do it. Either aware or unaware.
It all starts when we see an artist here whose work we like a lot.
Most of us have been there. Seeing the work of an artists that hits a soft spot in you, for whatever reason that might be.
You admire it, but at the same time you feel sad because you realize your level is still miles away from this artist, and you will probably never be able to do the same.
But despite everything, you start following this person. And you keep following him.
Because somewhere deep in your soul, you hold the believe --or rather, hope-- that when you watch it long enough, it will reveal it's tricks.
That it will inspire you in some way. And that you'll be able to do the same.
Unconsciously, we all build images of our idol.
It's human nature, I guess. We fill in all the blanks. The things that we don't know from this person.
Because an idol isn't a person anymore at that point. It has become an ico

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But

In light of this, I'm (again) looking for members (and big time T-cats fans) who are willing to assist me. You know, some admins to keep me from side-tracking. ;3
I need people who are interested in helping and I need to know if people are interested in participating in a friendly contest. I know some clubs are going crazy with their contests so if you guys are up for it- what the heck.

Hacker! JUST STOP!!!Okay, so I have heard about this hacker and all I have to say to him/her....STOP! We know who you are and we are not falling for you stupid tricks! I have read many journal entries giving out the name you use and I have them written down. If I see you commenting on me or anybody else I will report you and permanently have you kicked off! This is a warning, no a threat! No one likes you! If you want a DA account make one already!!!Hacker! JUST STOP!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Warning to all DA members: Be careful on the links you click because it could be the hacker. My suggestion is that if you see a link, search up the persons name and see if they have an account on here because I get these names that I don't know so I look them up and it turns out that they do not have a DA account. Remember to watch what links you click until this hacker problem is solved.
Post this journal on your pages so the Hacker knows that they need to knock it off.
