KuroBasu cosplay portraits + shoot outtakes!Generation of Miracles casual outfit portraits
(Added on November 7)
Not everyone's Teiko uniforms are ready just yet, but we wanted to get a feel of things for the proper shoot so we did this for practice. It gave us a chance to try out our wigs and makeup and junk to see what we need to improve on for our actual cosplays.
The following portraits are the full-sized versions of what was squeezed into the above banner thing

A Happy Holiday Journal EntryThank youA Happy Holiday Journal Entry4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm still a bit overwhelmed by the responses to my previous journal entry, but I will do my best to make proper replies to some of you soon. But to everyone Thank you all for constantly giving me reasons to be grateful.
I've got a bit of free time today before another Christmas party so I thought I'd post a holiday journal with miscellaneous moments from the past month or so. Thank you so much to Miss-It-Girl for extending my subscription so I can keep sharing these photos with you guys!
The holiday decor at home was a joy to look at and photograph.
I enjoyed the added details of these swirly twigs that make me think of Tim Burton landscapes.
After all these years, the sight of sparkling lights and shiny Christmas ornaments and even the smell of tinsel and synthetic trees gets me in the mood fo

A couple of weeks ago, we attended an event called Fantasy Quest 2. (The very first Fantasy Quest was when we cosplayed Harry Potter characters.)
It was a pretty special day for us because four years ago, we had our first shoot and bonding day with Ysabel SavingSunlight at the venue, Fernwood Gardens.
We've been really into Adventure Time, so many months ago we decided we'd do AT cosplay, and that Fantasy Quest would be a fun opportunity to do so. It feels weird how we had been looking forward to this event for ages, and now it's over!

Team Sasuke at Ozine Fest Day 3
So here are pictures from our day out last Sunday! Some are from my phone, others are from Facebook friends (Thanks, Jannibee and Benelyn!) and people who have sent me snapshots over Twitter!
Let's start with a group shot! Our theme was Sasuke and his teachers (and his flirt of an alternate universe self from Road to Ninja)

The Rurouni Kenshin Movie ExperienceSome months ago, a rumor surfaced that they would be showing the Rurouni Kenshin live action movie at our theaters here in the Philippines. After some weeks of torture, we were finally given an official confirmation and screening date! The day they started selling tickets online, I got a bunch for me and my friends, even though it was a couple of months too early, hahah!The Rurouni Kenshin Movie Experience3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nearing the screening date, I received a wonderful surprise from :iconup-ame: UP-AME.org.
They invited me to be a guest and cosplay competition judge for Swordplay, a Rurouni Kenshin fan event, and also to the special advanced screening days before the official screening date. I've often thought that if there is one cosplay I would like people to remember me by, it would be Kenshin. I was very honored and touched that they had thought of including me to a day celebrating a series that means so much to me, and a movie I had been looking forward to for ages.
My friends and I had decided s

Time flew by very fast, and before we knew it...
Our first day was spent doing a lot of eating, thanks to our guide Alyssa I will justify it as us fueling up for an action-packed weekend! We tried nasi lemak for the first time (LOVED IT), had some shaved ice desserts after, then a big dinner of clay pot rice, stir-fry noodles with clams, really tasty chicken wings, etc. and THEN we still raided Pick N' Pay for our midnight snacks because we love convenience stores and we wanted to try things we don't have in Manila.
We planned our cosplays ahead with Team Kachang Puteh, the guests from Singapore. Our theme for the first day of HobbyCon was Shingeki no Kyojin!

Oh man so I had just come home from an extremely enjoyable but very tiring day and I was just about ready to fall into bed when I spot a parcel waiting for me.
Gasp! ADVENTURE TIME merch from Hatah Hatah!! My friends and I were stopped in our tracks by their Finn hat at the con last weekend and we ended up kind of collectively staring at their booth and puking rainbows. We were all like MOTHER OF WANT WE MUST HAVE ALL THE THINGS
So after that I ordered the Finn pocket shirt and I got them today then I saw these hats and AAAAAAA brb wearing these everywhere

So we went to Toycon last Saturday and as usual I... didn't really get to take pictures of toys and stuff. It was so crowded around the merchandise hall that I couldn't stop and take photos because people were constantly threading through and shoving. It was like a river of people with an actual current, hahah! Sometimes I'd find a friend to chat with but we'd eventually be pulled apart by the tide, it was kind of funny.
I wanted to wear something simple and comfortable so I posted on my Facebook that I would wear my old Ichigo cosplay in his Karakura High uniform. The Bleach manga is so crazy now that it just made me miss the days when Bleach was simple.
I think this is the last decent picture of myself that I have wearing this, and it was taken ages ago.
And here it is on me again, with a new wig, better contact lenses, better wig styling and cosplay makeup skills (somewhat), and Kon plush that was give
Harry Potter cosplay tomfoolery at Fantasy QuestFantasy Quest 2011Harry Potter cosplay tomfoolery at Fantasy Quest3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many, many months ago last July (that's how late this entry is) a cosplay event was held in the most beautiful location that the local cosplay community has ever seen. Fernbrook Gardens the wedding & events destination which you might recognize from our Kuroshitsuji http://behindinfinity.deviantart.com/gallery/29228688 and Harry Potter cosplay photoshoots http://behindinfinity.deviantart.com/gallery/31767781
It was around that time that the world was getting ready for the final Harry Potter movie, so my friends and I decided that perhaps it was about time to push through with our plans to cosplay Harry Potter characters. Parts of Fernbrook Gardens also looked like Hogwarts so we figured it would be appropriate.
Photos are from my friends, some from albums I was tagged in on Facebook, and some from my own camera.
Here I am with most of my friends that I went to the event with, along with Arnel akagii2004 whom we met that day as he was

Broken Youth ED Cosplay Photo Sequence!NARUTO LIVE ACTION?!Broken Youth ED Cosplay Photo Sequence!7 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, our attempt at it anyway.
We loved the sixth Shippuuden ending animation, and this is what happened. These shots are better viewed in sequence so I decided to keep them all in this journal entry, as opposed to spamming you guys by submitting each shot individually into my gallery.
That certainly was a challenge. You might notice the use of the diffusion filter in some shots. I usually prefer photos crisp and clear, but we wanted to capture the feel of the video as much as we possibly could. I'll make a follow-up post or something with other shots from the shoot, as well as outtakes.
We know our take isn't perfect, but we did our best to work with what we had. We had to compromise some scenes. That stone relic is missing, but come on - it's not exactly easy to come by those things! Haha!
If you're not familiar with the Broken Youth ending, I suggest you check out this video because the following photo series might not make any sense ot
The Host Club is now open! (updated)Ouran High School Host ClubThe Host Club is now open! (updated)7 years ago in Personal More Like This
We recently had an Ouran High School Host Club photoshoot, organized by Cyfliq. It started out as a Honey-sempai & Mori pictorial for Ysabel Ken-chan-Byakushi and Kune kunebitt, and she invited the rest of us to come hang out during the shoot. We said we'd be glad to help out with taking pictures and anything else, and later figured that we could join in as characters as well. The rest of us didn't have a lot of time to prepare their uniforms so we just used casual clothes we already had. So yeah, sorry about the outfit and wig inconsistencies for now. This was just closet cosplay for a lot of us, haha.
That day was a lot of fun but we're also looking forward to the second Ouran shoot with a slightly different cast and proper costumes. Hopefully we get to do more than the usual school uniforms since the Host Club cosplays as well.

dA PRO Camera Bag
This is a rather late review, but better late than never! This has been my camera bag for a while the dA PRO Camera Bag.
I find it just the right size to carry my essentials, without being too bulky. A lot of my camera-wielding friends with too-large backpacks have repeatedly expressed their envy. Those straps on the front are for carrying tripods. They're removable if you don't need them.

Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:

On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a
