As of now, my brain is too fried to write up a proper journal entry about our volcano GARventure, and one of my usual event reports (as you can see on the right side of my journal) about Cosplay Mania, but I'd like to take this chance to share a part of our lecture of sorts at the Cosmania cosplay workshop last Sunday.
China snowpeachdrop, Kat moonlightflight, El rosiael and I were invited to talk about general cosplay planning, like fabric selection, wig styling, cosplay makeup and photography. My friends might post the other parts, but for now here is our silly guide about posing for cosplay photos, and convention etiquette. The actual presentation was actually longer, and with lots more examples, but here is a condensed rundown of what we talked about, fo

ColossalCon 2013Yesterday was the day CupofSquirrel went to Colossal Con, and we had an excellent time. Though I am worn out, I'm still feeling enthusiastic about our con experience.ColossalCon 20132 years ago in Personal More Like This
Guess and I wore our Thor and Loki cosplays for the second time at a con (the first was Motor City Comic Con, where we had severe costume malfunctions). This time was a bit better-- it was nice to have test runs before Youmacon this year, and before we begin filming projects with Thor and Loki. We have kinks we still need to work out to make our costumes better, but that will come in time.
We will not, however, be wearing these to another summer convention. Ever. Again.
I have this problem where I don't take care of myself-- I don't do it intentionally, I just don't realize that I'm physically feeling a certain way, or emotionally feeling a certain way. I'm far better at reading other people's needs than my own, so I didn't even notice I was overheating until we went back inside. We had been running around taking cosplay
New Year, New MeHappy New Year!New Year, New Me3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't generally hold much stock in judging life by each year, but I'm feeling especially invigorated today due to the fact that I've just realized something fully for the first time, and am eager to begin looking at my life in a new way.
Before I venture into the life-altering perspective, let me talk briefly about Doctor Who. Currently, I am at the start of Season Four (featuring David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor), and I am proud to announce that I am officially a 'Whovian'. I wasn't sure I'd reach this point, and I think it's funny that it happened to me while Martha was the Doctor's companion (I much preferred Rose, but I do like Martha quite a lot). I think what really began my love for the series was the profound feeling I felt in regard to 'The Face of Bo'. I apologize to those of you who aren't familiar with the series. But those who are: did you feel emotionally attached to 'The Face of Bo'? There is something beautiful

After Midnight, we came up with the brilliant idea to do a cosplay video!!!! So we stayed up until 4:30 in the morning editing, filming and uploading. 3 hours of filming for a 3 minute video.

FAQ time!Since I tend to get asked a lot of the same questions through our videos or at cons, I decided to answer a few of them here. Most of them are related to Grell, Kuroshitsuji, or the Grell Show in some way. So without further ado....here you go!FAQ time!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Where do you get your Grell contacts?
I get all of my contacts from a company caleld Exotic Lenses http://www.exoticlenses.com/. I have never had an issue with any of their products, and believe me, I have tried several other companies out there. But Exotic Lenses products have never irritated my eyes, and they're so comfortable that half the time I forget I'm even wearing contacts. The style I use to always use for Grell are "Louis" (those pale green ones), but I recently switched over to a new style called "Mad Hatter" (as seen in my Ophelia pic).
Where do you get your sharp Grell teeth?
The veneers set that I use is from a site called Dental Distortions http://www.dentaldistortions.com/, and the style is actually called "Grell". They are a bit
