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 11 year ago in Personal More Like This

After serveral requests, I decided to upload a tutorial for my absinthe corset today. As you can see I used the same pattern for my steampunk corset dress Mademoiselle Émeraude Steam.
This tutorial shows an elaborate corset. Patterns can be found on the Internet at Burda / Simplicity or even online shops about historical patterns and corsets.
Many steps can be used for a simple corsage. The steps

imo n00bs that I have worked with, talked with, hung out with *think* and say they want to be in the games industry, but tbh they only *kind of* want it.
They want all the cool shit, without the slog through the mud for the first 3 - 5 years to get there. They want instant rockstar status, to tell their friends, to be cool nerds etc.
My lecturer at Qantm, stood up in an auditorium and told the entire room of 70 odd brand new students that at the end of this diploma, there would only be about 20 people left, of which 10 or so would pass, and only 2 or 3 may get a job, of which 1 or maybe 2 will be in the games industry for any great length of time.
That stuck with me big time, and what he

I've become a big fan of appliqués in the past 5 years.
In this tutorial I want to show you what you can accomplish with this simple sewing technique.
Don't be surprised if I go through the steps quickly. In the lower tutorials everything has been described.

In this special New Year edition we introduce you to THREE awesome photographers starting with josephlowphotography from Malaysia, followed by archiekwa from Singapore and closing with greengreencat from Austria!
Enjoy knowing more about these talented photographers and the showcase of their pictures!
KWC: Introduce yourself. How old are you, where do you live, and what do you do?
josephlowphotography Hi everyone, my name is Joseph Low, 22 years old, currently a student and I live in Malaysia.
KWC: Do you have any other hobbies besides cosplay photography?
I play sports such as basketball and badminton when I have the free time from my studies and also a pc gamer.
Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.For a lot of you it might be nothing new, but since a lot of you are either new on dA or not experienced with something like "strategies" to get views, comments and faves for their works i (your most favourite dA group guy :icongbk666: ) thought i write up a few hopefully useful hints for you.Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Upload as many drawings / photos etc. as you can. Some of you would argue now that it can be counterproductive if the deviations are not good, but i come to that point in #2
2. Join Groups. A Ton of them.. at least 15-25 . And submit your stuff to them on a regular base. BUT only the things you consider by yourself as "good" . The rest is for your gallery only, and interesting for those deviants who want to see sketches, WIP's etc.
Always care about the theme of the dA groups of course and about their rules. If you are not Alvin Lee, Artgerm or Genzoman or have over 100k views on your profile already and over 400-500 watchers at least you really need dA groups to g

Art Thefts SUCK!They really do.Art Thefts SUCK!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Whenever you encounter one of these Idiots, don't hesitate to send a note with the details to groups like
:iconDoombringers: :iconOriginalVSTheftGroup: :iconAntyCopy:
You can also always just contact me GBK and FGE Group Dictator ..in really stupid cases i use the groups sometimes too to get the focus on art thieves.
Small rant because it is true
People who also suck:
All the people who upload a ton of SoulCalibur and/ or SFXT Screenshots.
People who upload not one..not two..not 5, but over 150! official Tekken artworks to their gallery and seem to believe dA is something like imageshack.
People who don't share the FGE Admin's opinion!
Happy Advent Time everyone!

Last year I visited a craft fair and discovered in the paper decoration / paper crafting a super great new material.
Maybe some of you know it.
But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.
It can be used for paper decoration, for gemstones, paint and much more.
In this tutorial I made a kind of decoration for costumes versions/ setting f
