Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on HalloweenArt By :iconraggedy-annedroid:Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on Halloween3 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

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

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

Reviews: Cosplay Wig ShopsSo, here we start with the review thingy about cosplay stuff.Reviews: Cosplay Wig Shops4 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

How difficult it always is, to get stones for a costume in the right color, size and shape.
That's why I uploaded this tutorial today: How to make gems.
How to work step by step:
What materials do you need:
- resin and hardener
- tinting paint
- cups and spoons/ chopsticks to stir
- maybe a scale
- silicone mold for/ of stones (I bought it on etsy)

The group's name - "Sexy" cosplay-causes much confusion. Some have dared to send photographs of naked, or very nice things but do not have anything to do with the practice of cosplay. Others simply send photos of very poor quality. What is being judged here is
1) The quality of the image,
2) the attitude of the model,
3) the propriety of cosplay, that is.
We are not using aesthetic criteria, nor demanding erotic poses ... in fact, many of the photos are rejected by overexposure of eroticism in the poses or exaggeration in the sexual content that can be tacky.
But there is another reason why sometimes reject photos, and consider relevant clarify:
We are being very selective with crossplays. I understand, because I practice it myself, which is extremely difficult t

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

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.
