2012- A Year in ReviewJanuary2012- A Year in Review3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The beginning of the year was pretty good. My birthday party was pretty relaxed-- just a short dinner with good friends at one of our favourite restaurants.
My first cosplay of the year was:
Katniss Everdeen from the book trilogy-- The Hunger Games
Hunger Games played a big part in my cosplay life for the first half of the year and I was hoping to be able to end the year with another Katniss costume, but I ran out of time to make it. I was going to do her interview dress as it was described in the book since I was really disappointed with a lot of the costume designs from the movie
I also did the Reaping Dress for Katniss in January.
February was pretty laid back as well. I continued with the Katniss costumes-- doing the Chariot outfit (from the book)
an updated Arena (book) cosplay to Tsukino Con. twinfools and I were only at Tsukino Con for a day. It's actually a really e
Shit Cosplayers SayJust in time to write my last image journal entry before the day as a subscriber ends (LIKE TODAY)Shit Cosplayers Say4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kanasaiii and I had became fans of Shit Girls Say when it debuted, since then, it turned into this giant internet meme where people made countless videos that label 'Shit ______ Say'.
So as cosplayers, we decided to contribute one: Shit Cosplayers Say
We have more content but ran out of time, these were everything filmed in one day. Our gifted actress was very game on everything we asked her to, including looking ugly and changing her clothes for each scene.
Please leave a comment to share your cosplayer experiences over at the video. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did making!

Where are the cartoons jerk?Ok I am sure that all of you followers and recent ad readers are like "Wait... he promised cartoons almost daily but he has not updated in like 5 months." Ok you are right. I would lie to you all but I am going to be very honest with you all. I am still in a legal battle with slendy. So the next few days are going to be very stressful. Believe it or not, the surprise witness was pedobear himself. You know what, he is not a pedophile after all. He is actually Catholic. He has a family and has a clean record. So yeah gimme a few days and I should get back to cartoons.Where are the cartoons jerk?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Photography, Modeling, and Your SafetyFrom time to time, friends ask me about various modeling offers they have received.Photography, Modeling, and Your Safety3 years ago in Personal More Like This
They usually want to know the following:
Is it a real offer?
Do I think it's safe?
Is it a scam?
I can't know all of these answers for each time I'm asked, but I do have two thoughts on photo shoots and personal safety:
1) You should always bring a chaperon/friend (male, strong, with a mind for protection) to photo shoots with a photographer you don't know personally. If the photographer resists you bringing a friend... then he is probably a creepy person.
A professional photographer will understand that this is your first time working with him. He will want you to be as comfortable as possible, otherwise the shoot will be a failure. If he doesn't know this, then he is not a professional photographer.
Knowing a photographer personally and knowing of him are not the same. If 30 of your friends know the photographer, but you have never worked with him or had a lengthy conversation with him, in person

Question to cosplayersI've heard it so much before from many different people, but I want to know your honest opinions.Question to cosplayers4 years ago in Personal More Like This
How do you feel about ANOTHER PERSON buying a cosplay instead of making it from scratch?
& vice versa?
I hope my opinion doesn't make you feel like you can't share yours. So, ignore mine and write your true opinion!
My opinion is: I DON'T GIVE A FLYING BUTTER KNIFE!
If someone wants to cosplay, but lacks the time, the money, the skills, etc. to make it... why should they be held back & not buy one?
If they love a character enough to cosplay it, spend money on it, then that's enough for me.
I would never judge a person or their love for the character they dress as based on whether they made a damn cosplay or bought it.
Sure, you can be happy & have a little pride in your outfit when you make it. That's great! I've made some of mine too, though I'm not entirely proud, I still made them! xD
But those that have to buy because of things in life that limit their ability to make o

The New Profile TabsAs part of an initiative to make deviantART more user-friendly and clearer, tabs on the Profile Page have received a visual and functional uplift!The New Profile Tabs2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The tabs on Profile Pages (Gallery, Prints, Favourites, and Journal) have been visually improved for consistency, cleanliness, and an overall up to date appearance. Navigation elements have been moved to the left column of the page, and the placement of major elements of each tab have been aligned so that the transition from one tab of one's Profile to another is more smooth, natural, and clean.
In addition, when viewing tabs of your own Profile, you can easily add to that tab! The Gallery tab prompts you to submit artwork, the Prints tab prompts you to submit a Print, and the Journal tab prompts you to write a Journal entry!

NOW! On to Banzaicon! This con re-cap is LONGGG OVERDUE! But April was just such a whirlwind month for us.
Banzaicon was even more amazing than it was last year, which was hard to do because last year was PRETTY DAMN AMAZING. This con has one of the best staff that I have encountered at cons. Everyone really truly cares about the quality of the con and the enjoyment of all of the attendees. It blows me away each year when I see their committment and philosophy around Banzaicon. And let's not forget the attendees!!! EVERYONE IS SO WONDERFUL AND SO WELCOMING!!! You guys all make this con as awesome as it is thank you so much for having us! <3

sry for being so late with updating you with my latest BIG project.
I'm working on this costume since January and finally I see the end of the long tunnel coming XD.
I wanna show you my now finished Saber Gift Figure armor!
If you don't know that version, you can see the reference here ---> http://www.ncsx.com/2009/012609/fate_stay_saber_gift.htm

well let's start with the raw armor parts, completely unpainted.
I used WOBLAS FINEST ART as my material. It's a thermoplastic material with a mix out of plastic and wood. It's close to Wonderflex, but thicker, more durable and it's easier to make round shapes l shoulders, knees and chest plates. You can also melt the material together and use it as thermoplastic modeling clay!
This is my VERY first armor and even a bloody begin
