How I cosplayed the cast of Free! sort-of-tutorialGroup cosplay, forever alone style! Yeah, that's all me.How I cosplayed the cast of Free! sort-of-tutorial1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In this post, I'll get into how I did each one!
Intro, and some bad old pictures
For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face?
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al

Erik and Charleshttp://flamboyantwreck.tumblr.com/post/27976868834/for-kelly-3-charles-confesses-his-problem-toErik and Charles3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I recently drew a little comic based on a conversation between Kelly and her mum. (http://okellyjaneo.tumblr.com/post/27824810055/the-spider-incident)
Now, I'm desperate for something else to draw.
The convo that Kelly posted was about 10 lines long -so I'm after something of a similar length!
If you have any stupid anecdotes or ideas for a scene between Erik and Charles please send them my way. If I like 'em - I'll draw 'em.

Trying to go ProfessionalWhat would it mean if I could actually take on YouTube as a profession?Trying to go Professional2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Mainly it would result in 100% more videos for you guys, as well as being able to branch out and really dedicate time in production and editing.
This is something I've been talking about with Kelly for a while now, and I have recently (after some serious talk) gained my mothers support in the venture.
However, I can't do it for free. This is where you guys come in.
1) In the last few months of 2012, I plan to push for new designs in the Parlé store. So if you'd like to support us; then please buy a t-shirt or two when they are ready to go!
US STORE: http://parleproductionsusa.spreadshirt.com
UK STORE: http://parleproductions.spreadshirt.co.uk
2) Tell your friends about our shows, make your own videos talking about the shows. Do journals and tumblr blogs; anything to get the Parlé name out there and appealing to more people. The more people we get; the more likely this will happen.
3) Although we're not ke
It's so quiet...Sorry for the lack of activity here! I've been busy XDIt's so quiet...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a bit of a mental start to 2013, with Jenn getting a new job, a bunch of birthdays and events, and a lack of money forever looming overhead!
I've mostly been busy working on my costume and kit for a new LARP system I'm joining next month, so when I have some good pictures of that, I'll share them here. It's not often I will share pictures of my original characters on deviantART (in fact, I don't think I've ever done it), but I'm really proud of the kit for this. A bunch of Parlé are all joining the same system, so hopefully we can get a few good shots before time in!
Here's a preview of the costume, for those interested...
On the con-front, things are less busy than usual, due to clashing events, and one or two that we usually attend for fun that we're opting out of this year. We did London Anime Con at the start of the month, which was a fantastic event. Still t

ABUNAICONIt's come around SO fast, and I feel totally unprepared!!ABUNAICON2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, Abunaicon is THIS FRIDAY, and I've finally got around to deciding exactly which costumes I'm bringing... though no clue what ones I'm wearing on which days!
- Portal, Experiment 13B
- Avengers, Tony Stark
- L4D2, Ellis
- X-Men, Rogue
I haven't worn Rogue for aaages, but having tried it on again last night, I'm really excited to be wearing this costume again. She is, after all, one of my absolute favourite Marvel characters~
There is a preliminary EuroCosplay round being held at Abunaicon too, so we're expecting to see some awesome costumes at this! As Jenn and I are primarily non-Japanese/Asian origin cosplayers and choose our costumes from outside of this spectrum, we're looking forward to seeing not only some great costumes from animes and manga, but also some fantastic Western-origin costumes too!
Keep an eye on your convention schedules, and come see our panels!
