Casmund, and a RewriteFirst of all, my rewrite: for anybody who was offended by my last journal entry about my dislike for the Hunger Games, I am truly sorry. I was thinking of deleting that entry entirely...but then all the knowledgeable, nicely-written out comments would be gone...and I don't want that. Because I do appreciate all the, um, effort that went into the replies people sent in to that entry. Makes me rethink my hate, I guess. Or at least be a little less passionate about it. I'll admit it: I made a mistake, and a hasty one too. I judged a whole fandom with little to no evidence...and that's something that I usually frown upon others for doing!Casmund, and a Rewrite2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, yes, basically, I am sorry. I'll admit that I don't truly hate the Hunger Games anymore...I think my dislike really stemmed from the pestering and annoyance of all the fans I've met...who, by coincidence, most of which happen to be just a bit crazy about this fandom. But now I remember that there are always people who are way too crazy about various f

Cosplay Photoshoot EtiquetteMy good friend ~hikaraseru has written a very good guide on how a standard cosplay photoshoot should be conducted in a conducive manner. I got her permission to post the entire article up, so hope you guys like what she is presenting to us.Cosplay Photoshoot Etiquette2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Want to plan a cosplay shoot, but somehow things just don't turn out right? Maybe the photos were not how you visualised them, or that the photographer seemed to be extra grumpy, or you just don't know what's going on? Read on for how to get the best out of your cosplay shoot:
The 4 Ps:
Having a plan is essential and should take up the most time overall in your shoot. Speak to the photographers closely, because they will be the ones producing the photos that will be the end result; make sure they are aware of the concept and background of the series you're shooting. Some photographers will want to do their own research prior to the shoot (reading the manga/watching the anime/looking up reference photos) - so make sur

Is it better to possess a thing of beauty, or to experience the ultimate consummation of oneness with that beautiful thing by actually consuming it... and being left only with the memory of its beauty?

I have a free hour and therefore I can update,yay! I'm so happy *sigh *sob
It has been a long time since I updated my journal last time,but I just couldn't persuade myself to get rid of the beautiful photos from the front page, since they're pretty much my idols ahah xD
A lot happened during these days. Sooo many things I can't even remember!
I'll just start from where my memories are clear-

My story with Cosplay"When did you start doing Cosplay?"My story with Cosplay8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've doing cosplay since 2008.
At that time i didn't want to be myself because i didn't like me so i tried to be someone else that i could admire. Then i realized that cosplayin' is what i was searching for.
"Did something changed since then?"
Since then, my life is completely changed.
Cosplaying is helping me being more creative even if i don't really like sewing clothes and modeling armors and weapons.
I'm not really good at it, i can't do perfect cosplays and even if my dream is to become a cosplay model in Japan it doesn't mean that i'm taking advantage of this passion of mine.
I, for sure, enjoy myself with cosplay and i think that if i could change it into a job then i would be really happy because this is my dream.
"Did something changed in your private life?"
When i started i had no friends at all, i was nobody and people always were bulliyng me at school.
For years i only met persons that pretented to misjudge me, to make a fool of me

This video has LOTS of work put into it And it hasn't been easy to make!
Since we live in different parts of the world, we had to send the clips between us a lot, which has been leading to a lot of problems in different ways.
We had planned to make a LOT more with the video, but it would lower the quality too much (since there would be more sending back and forth), so we just had to settle and decide that it was done now.
I loved to work with Lalasosu though! She is an amazing effect artist She ROCKS with it!!! And even if we weren't able to do everything we had pl

Did take me almost 40 Minutes just to write down the Journals... and another 30 minutes to make this journal... Finally its over!!!
