Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on HalloweenArt By :iconraggedy-annedroid:Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on Halloween2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it is Halloween. I am a cosplayer. Here it is, the greatest of all dress up holidays! And I am always disappointed. Here are the top 5 reasons it sucks to be a cosplayer at Halloween.
1) Friends (including friends of friends) come out of nowhere to ask for costumes. They just ask for a little help. On their giant full body armor masterpiece. The week before Halloween. Because you know, you make costumes and it's easy for you. And the price? Well, it's "for a friend" price. Which is always "free" or "I'll pay you $20 never" which boils down to "get you a shot of Jack sometime." Sadface.
2) Costumes in my closet everywhere, but none for Halloween. Yes, I have over 60 costumes. No, none of them will ever be recognized at a Halloween party. One year I dressed as Pris from Blade Runner out on the town, which I thought would b

And I want to thank all of you, who supported me and who helped me to evolve during that tough year.

Jin Attempts To Explain Cosplay Photography As requested by many of you, I've submitted this guide as a dA news article. Here is the link. I'm happy this proved to be useful for a lot of you guys!

First of all, let me warn you that by the end of this journal entry, you may find yourself sick of my face. (If you aren't already.) I'll be using mostly myself as an example for the things I'm going to discuss, because I'm the only person I can poke fun at without restrictions.
I get asked a lot of questions about these cosplay photos that most of you have come to know me for. Sometimes it's about the techniques we use, requests for tips and advice for other people who want to do something similar. Other times, the comments come from people who aren't familiar with cosplay, but are curious about it and are interested to know more. So I thought of making this li

A Spotlight for the CosplayersGame-Art-HQ stands mainly for drawn art, but cosplay is a part of the video game fans community, a part of deviantART and a part of GAHQ as well.A Spotlight for the Cosplayers2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today i want to feature some of the cosplayers here which put not only a lot of work into the costumes they made, they also had the right photographer and in some cases completely fitting environments for their cosplays as well. Most cosplay articles are mostly about the sexy looking female cosplayers, i hope to arrange a nice mix here instead with a different focus.
I think the term Cosplay-Art is only fair for the upcoming photos:
Edward Conway, the protagonist of the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV, cosplayed by Rick Boer from the Netherlands. His earlier MGS cosplays are damn epic.
The right moment..caught here by fiathriel from the USA a photographer who often works with cosplayers, her works are often on the frontpage here on dA.

I am back with my report about the DESUCON in Oslo (Norway) in June :3.
It was my first time in Norway and I was really excited. I was cosplay guest together with my boyfriend Elffi and my friend KamuiCosplay.
We got picked up and delivered to our wonderful hotel by the really nice con staff. The hotel was directly next to the con (that's sooooo useful for us cosplayers *_* really!). Such a pretty room and OMG that breakfast in the hotel *drools* nomnomnom <3!!!
On the first day, Elffi, Kamui and I had our panels/workshops. I had mine together with Elffi. Our first workshop was about "Cosplay around the world" to give some impressions of the places we already visited. The 2nd one was about Cosplay in general with some advices where to find materials, how to get pretty photos and so on ^^. I still hope people understood our panels XD. Norwegian people are very quiet and

How difficult it always is, to get stones for a costume in the right color, size and shape.

How to work step by step:
What materials do you need:

An interesting idea I had as I was looking through my comments.
500 points being given.
If you don't really care about entering, just favorite this journal to be entered in to win 100 points.
The main idea is to make me laugh by using the simple doge meme on one of my photographs. It can be any of them; the choice is yours but it must follow certain guidelines.
Please post it to your sta.sh and post it on this journal.
Be original. (You can look to comments from inspiration but don't completely take the ideas there.)
If you have no idea what the shibe/doge meme is. Take this photo for example.
These photos utilize the the comic sans font, usually rainbow colors and text of varying sizes. Th

Reviews: Cosplay Wig ShopsSo, here we start with the review thingy about cosplay stuff.Reviews: Cosplay Wig Shops3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I ran into a loooooooooooot of trouble in the past weeks regarding wigs I will start with them.
First of all some general important informations:
- ALWAYS keep an eye on the feedback of a shop. If there are negative or natural feedbacks READ THEM. Not every negative feedback is appropriate and some shops sell more than just wigs. So be careful.
- ALWAYS be carefull with shops that advertise with asian cosplayers. A lot of pictures are taken from the japanese highclass cosplaysupplier cospediawig or the chinese Tabaeo stores. Have a close look at the pictures. Often you can see some blured details or removed watermarks. I even found some fellow non asian cosplayers by now as advertisment for wigs they definitely didn't buy.
Some shops even take pictures from wigs on wigsstands from other sellers. Look and think twice if you buy there. You can be lucky and get what you see, but there is a pretty high chance you ge
