FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weaponEdit: Many of you asked for a transformation vid. So, I made this video clip. Enjoy!FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weapon2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my former journal I asked if you would like for me to explain how my Starseeker weapon was made. Since there were quite some people that would like me to do so, I decided to make this FAQ journal. So, I hope I'l answer some questions you might have about this curious weapon and I hope I can explain it well enough for you all to understand.
Note that I made the weapon a couple of months ago and I don't remember everything very clear of the making of it. But, I'll do my best.
So, first things first: The Starseeker
Serah's weapon is quite the interesting one. This because it's a transformable one just like her sister's, Lightning. Nonetheless, it's a transformable one from bow to blade, which original form is none other than the cute moogle companion, Mog.
Of course, Final Fantasy is all about 'Fantasy', so making an exact workin

Today I show you how to sew a wide braid. Most cosplayers have the problem that our character has a pattern, a braid or similar to his clothes that are simply not exist to buy.
With this little tutorial you have one of many ways to solve this problem completeley.

Since I tend to focus on manly characters with huge weapons, I receive quite a bit of mail asking for instructions on how to make them. Rather than writing hundreds of individual emails I wanted to create a series of articles on the noble skill of Cosplay prop-making.
And what a better way to start it than go through the basics of making giant weapons! In this first installment I will talk about materials and tools I use to make my props.
DISCLAIMER: there are many, many great Cosplay prop-builders, and in no way do I think my methods are superior to theirs. This is for those people who want to learn the methods to my madness.
Below is the list of the materials I use most commonly to create my props. Note that this is not a comprehensive list by

I would also like to direct your attention to :iconyuurisan-c-chan: who has started writing her own helpful tutorial on Lightning's Valkyrie Armor. Her work is really stunning and I highly recommend the tips and tricks she provides.
And for those of you wanting to cosplay Serah from FFXIII-2, yuurisan's twin :iconYuuri-K-sama: has also written a great tutorial. CHECK THESE OUT. YOU WON'T REGRET IT.
Anyway, yesterday I began work on the front chest piece for Lightning, and let me just say, it was a bit of a learning experience. I knew what I was getting into but I didn't know how to go about some things a certain way. It's kind of that thing... "Hey, I think this will work great this way." But it really doesn't go exactly how you envisioned it. This is one of the ways:

Why Do I Ship Fang/Lightning?Zerrat asked this question over on the Fangrai February website (http://fangrai-february.tumblr.com):Why Do I Ship Fang/Lightning?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Basically, I want to read people waxing poetic about Fang/Lightning, so here is a meta question for you all to answer as you see fit. What made you ship Fang/Lightning, and what do you like best about this ship?"
This was my response:
I could, I suppose, provide a somewhat poetic answer, but I would much prefer to give a simpler one.
What drew me to shipping Fang/Lightning? The answer, I think, lies in the depth that these two characters have.
Lightning is like a marble statue left to face the tearing winds of chance and fate. She's been scarred - irrevocably so - by all that she has endured, but rather than making her ugly, her suffering has made her magnificent. The harshness she has, the strength, all of these things stem from her desperate need to protect her sister. Yet the very things that make her capable of protecting her sister are also the things that drive her sister away.

I've decided to make a journal on every cosplay I make in order to explain how I made it. I will update with more info on the costume as soon as I can get to my camera(parents are borrowing it).
Ever since I learned of cosplay I always wanted to be Tifa Lockart but thought it impossible. I had been saying for 3 years prior that I would be her and finally the time came when I received a sewing machine for my birthday! Worn at Anime Expo 2011, it was my first actual cosplay and I'm very proud of it!
Cosplay FAQCOSPLAY FAQ!Cosplay FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most of the time, I find FAQ to be a little bit pretentious, but I've finally decided to make one simply because, I get one of these questions at least once a week, and while I love giving you all the individual help that I can, those of you who have asked these questions and received answers know they tend to be suuuuper long winded (I have a hard time explaining any other way), and I just don't always have time to answer in as much detail as I like. So here I can make sure I give all the basic info I can think of, but you are more than welcome to note me or comment with any further questions!
First, this one is really more for my sake, but has been asked a few times: Can I make a replication of your (whatever character) cosplay?
Let me first say that I don't feel knowledge belongs to any one person. I am more than happy to explain in detail to you how I have done absolutely everything on any of my cosplays. From makeup to a

Well I've been thinking if I should talk about this here but yeah, just wanna say my sadness on everything I've saw and read against my most favorite Female character Lightning. Well I'm aware that every FF character will always have haters or ones who will say anything against them just like us living human beings but it just saddens me because for everything that Lightning wears in LR there will always be a dirty comment about her and they're even from those I thought huge fan of Lightning. I mean Lightning is a character, we people are the ones[not to mention the SE staffs who are working for LR] who made those costumes for her. I know how you feel [disappointment]. But to talk anything like she's a whore, those f*ckin' tits and etc. I mean I'm a woman who also have those but to talk it off like that---I mean don't be pissed at Lightning
[and say anything like it's not her character; why does she wear those, well did she

The Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Event is over. The images shown include that of a town, a bar, buildings, streets, customes, monsters, train, and much more. There's one special oil-painting revealed.
There was a trailer shown, but only to the attendees. More information will be leaked on that soon, though, so don't worry!
The third game is titled, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.
The world itself is new, in an area called Navus Partus in a city called Lexerion
Lightning is the sole character, so the entire game will revolve around her.
The world will end in 13 days until doomsday.
Lightning is stronger than human and more like a God. She'll be stronger than the previous two games.
This will be Lightning's final battle.
There will be plenty of customes customization which affects Lightning's status in battle.
Lightning can wield big words.

I got so stressed that I snapped in my dream.
Oh damn, it was one of those earthquake moments where everything builds up and you explode. Yeah.
I get scary when that happens to me. I think what happened was I was at some sort of party and someone cut one of my claws nails when I wasn't looking and oh damn I got pissed off (do you have any idea how long it takes to grow these claws I broke one like two months ago and it's still catching up to the rest even with trimming). I kicked him in the crotch like five times. And I was wearing heels. HEELS. AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA. yes I know I was fabulous
Seriously though I know I was scary because I was going off just insane. And I KNOW I was scary because Zehnder was there with me. And I scared him. Yeah I scared Zehnder because I was so damn pissed off.
He's like twice my height and he just looked down at me like 'Y-you wanna go kill someone . . ?'
Thanks Zehndy I love ya bro XD

One of the questions I get a lot are "who do you buy ____ from?"
I always assumed that all sites were pretty equal,
but I recently have been, and still am, dealing with a dispute form a contact website,
they have broken their our rules but still refusing to refund the purchase,
and because of the way they worded the product paypal is refusing to step up.
I'm pretty burned,
and I know others have been screwed over,
or have had major problems from dealing with people online.
As well as people who have had amazing experiences.
