Posing! Tips ~I did these instructions 2 years ago, but I still think they're kind of good I hope you like!Posing! Tips ~1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Posing is crucial for getting an awesome cosplay photo! You should be aware of the basics before you go on a photoshoot. At a convention people are going to want to take pictures of and with you, practice your posing and you'll like the pictures that pop up on facebook afterwards!
Note where there is a source of light, and capture it with your face.
Don’t just stand there! Twist your body a bit and it will come to live in pictures! If you just stand there your hips will look wider than if you twist your body! :3
Beware of your limbs when posing. An arm that’s just hanging there can easily look like a deadweight.
On the subject of arms it’s important to notice how awkward the “hands behind your back”-pose can look. It’s always difficult to know what to do with your arms and hands. If you have a prop it will come more natural (or if your character has a sig
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 Etiquette3 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

Even if it is random & out of the blue.
Even if you feel like a total doofus.
Go tell your friends, family, lover, neighbor, your neighbor's dog, a squirrel.. Go on a love spree.
You never know if it is the last time you'll see them.
If you're fighting with someone, stop. Tell them you love them. You never know if that would be the last time you talk to them.
Make life full of love. Not regrets.

First a few landmarks:
My name: NanjoKoji
What I am: Cosplayer and leader of Europe's premier anime/manga/videogame musical and show formation TnS - Tsuki no Senshi.

For those of you who are familiar with the anime, "Otome Youkai Zakuro", I have a message for you:
As a majority of you have expressed (mainly on Crunchyroll), you are yearning for a season 2 of this beloved anime. So am I, but, since the anime came out in 2010, if they were going to do a season 2, they would have done it by now.
But, I have an idea, and if it works, we can acquire the thing that comes close to having a 2nd season...

Gamescom is approaching!!Hi there everybody!Gamescom is approaching!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not used to write about my life here on the DA journals in a blog-like way, but I feel this is a pretty special occasion. As you may have seen, several months ago we made the Dark Steel armor costume from Dragon's Prophet as a commission for Infernum Productions. Well, it turns out they eventually invited me to Gamescom (in Cologne, Germany) along with some great cosplayers! So I'll be attending the convention and I'll wear my armor there, of course!
I'll be tweeting and uploading lots of pictures to our page. So feel free to follow me and, needless to say, if you're also attending Gamescom, come and say hi!!

For A Better FuturLife is hard but too beautifull in order to give up.For A Better Futur3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That's what I think.
Even if sometimes we just want to run away and let things down. It's human. In those moments, we really need to take a break in order to take a new breath and continue our life, our way.
Right now, I know what I need: Let go all this sh*t that is happened to me. Let go all those bad situations and negativ thoughts. Because of that, I can't continue my way and I can't focus on myself. I can't see my life in front of me...even if I know I have all my life in front me, I have my futur that is waiting for me.
So It's really really tiring and make me so angry and sad.
Those last times, I just think of it. Why am I like that? Why couldn't I just smile? I ask myself all the time...and it's probably one of the big problem: I ask myself all the time...but I just ask, I'm not looking for answers.
I know: I'm just really tired and I can't let go bad situations that is happened in my family for the moment. That's like

¿No sería genial? Un sitio en el que poder darte a conocer a toda España, donde hablar y conocer personas que, como tú, quieren que su obra sea leida por las masas. No sé que os parecerá a vosotros, pero a mi me hace sentirme emocionada, con esperanza!
Sí, es un proyecto muy difícil y costoso pero sin ayuda, apoyo y trabajo duro no vamos a conseguir nada en este país. Siempre he visto que los artistas españoles se promocionan en otros paises porque en España ...es una mierda ... sin comentarios.

What is your cosplay alias?
Kurohane Shizumi. XD Some people associate me with Yazoo and now Maka.
How many years have you cosplayed?
How did you get into cosplaying?
Hmm. Hard to say actually... I went to my first con in a "costume" of sorts. Wearing character costumes (or cosplay) was just the next, natural step. Especially after seeing such amazing ones right then! But why did I wear one in the first place...? I think it was just the whole idea of being apart of the fandom I loved so much. I felt like the anime shirts and such just wouldn't do. XD I'm ren-fest regular so I'm use to "getting in character".
What was your first convention and how did it go?
YasumiCon '04~ I actually don't remember a lot about it. I wish I had been writing con reports then so I could go back and look but... oh well. Umm... lesse. I bought a ton of stuff. I only went Saturd

Read. Read all the FAQ and rules and commentary from previous enrolments, as well as the SOL Character Guide (temporary link). This is probably the most important thing, since we’re a bit different from other groups.
Make your character. Create your character with the template below. I suggest writing the biography before your personality so you can make them cohesive/contextual.
Submit your character. You should submit your character to our student transfers folder, located here: http://kamenoko-university.deviantart.com/gallery/42733667 . This does not mean they're accepted--it just lets us know who's in our 'repository' and we check back frequently.
