What kind of photos magazine need

After that I will ask you for the big resolution photos (best is not smaller than 2574x3875 , small photos is bad for printing as you know.)

Shit Cosplayers SayJust in time to write my last image journal entry before the day as a subscriber ends (LIKE TODAY)Shit Cosplayers Say3 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!

Yoko Littner Cosplay FAQFor those of you who are aspiring to cosplay Yoko or are just curious as to which materials and techniques I used to make my Yoko cosplay, I will post them here, anonymously, of course. However, if you want to be identified for whatever reason, please tell me, otherwise I will reword your question and not quote or otherwise credit you.Yoko Littner Cosplay FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If there is a question not answered here, feel free to leave a comment (here or on a picture) or PM me! I am happy to answer! I will not make up questions for you- all of these here are things I have been asked by another person. Reason being, if you don't ask, I'll assume you already know how I made something or don't care, and there are a million questions I could make up on my own. ;3
Let us begin the Yoko FAQ!
How heavy is your rifle?
It's actually quite light, considering the size (it is four feet and nine inches). I'd estimate it to weigh about 5 pounds, since my 8 lbs exercise weight feels much heavier!

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-tutorial2 years 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

2011 Europe tripThis took forever but I'm finally getting down to blogging about it! I've been looking for someone to tour Europe with, but unfortunately schedules are hard to match and money doesn't come by easy. Been wanting to visit Europe for the longest time, and last year I thought, if I don't go now, I may never have the chance to go. So I made up my mind to recce on my own, and in two weeks I was off on a plane! I didn't plan to go overseas for my graduation trip, so I shall reflect and relive last year in place of that XD2011 Europe trip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thoughts like "what the heck am I doing" did occur to me on the plane, but they were quickly taken over by the fear and excitement of exploring unknown lands 8D Since I was flying alone, next to me sat a Chinese lady who was working in Rome. We got to know each other a little better over the 13-hour flight, and she very kindly offered to drive me from the airport to my hostel ;v; I'm forever grateful towards her, as she made me feel safe and comfortable from the very start o

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

On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a

Cosplay Mania 11 Photography Contest...Cosplay Mania 11 Photography Contest...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As we previously announced in our Cosplay Mania ’11 post, the folks over at Cosplay Mania held a photography contest which the Cosplay Gen staff got to judge. The decision was pretty a tough one to make, considering there were a lot of great photos among the 20 contestants who submitted their photos, but in the end we managed to select 3 winners out of them! We're proud to announce that the first place winner will be featured on a two-page spread in Cosplay Gen #05!
The DPI MythSo, what's the deal with the DPI thing? Well, it's a hard to explain concept - DPI was created to solve an abstract problem, so the whole reasoning behind it is.. as you could guess, quite abstract. So, which problem you ask? Simple: a pixel does not have a physical size.The DPI Myth1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Ok, hang on.
What is a pixel? By definition, a pixel is the smallest graphical unit we have on computers. So yes, it has a virtual size. You aren't going to get smaller than a pixel, nope. But that unit does not exists in the physical world - so it doesn't have a physical size. It exists inside your software, much like a byte of any other information, but it does not have any physical attribute to it.
Let that sink in for a bit: a pixel is a virtual-only unit.
Got it? Okay, good.
When you display an image on your screen, the pixel does have a physical size - the one your display's attaches to it. But you can have a different display, with a different size/diagonal, displaying the same image with the same resolut
