Today I show you how to sew a wide braid. Most cosplayers have the problem that our character has a pattern, a braid or similar to his clothes that are simply not exist to buy.
With this little tutorial you have one of many ways to solve this problem completeley.
Today my costume is from Sakizou of the artbook "Romantic jewels - Gentleman"
Character: Prince Emerauld
Have a look what the bra

Finally!! Vacation Pictures!!Hello dear friendsFinally!! Vacation Pictures!!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Today I want to talk a little about Franka´s and mine vacation. We have been to Fuerteventura in June and it was fantastic. You´ve already see a few cosplay pictures, but we also want to show you a little more.
On our first evening, the moon was shining so bright, we just had to take a picture *////* (Good thing, we took a tripod with us)
Good, I want to be there again. The sun was wonderful and even better, the sea *___* I´m SO in LOVE with the sea.
Dressed up for the dinner show ^___^
The Stony beach at the other side of the Island. On our side (next to Corralejo) there´s neverending white sand beach. And breathtaking turquoise water with big waves *_* Perfect for surfing <3

My colleagues are great (they often bake cakes for me ) and they are so funny and my boss even thinks about giving me a pay raise in february. That would be so cool!
Also the costumers are always nice. They often give us bounties ^^
I have to work a lot, but it´s much fun ^.-
One of our course rooms
One (the smallest) of our saunas
There are many more beautiful things like the Lounge with it´s cozy couches and the real open fire, the Climbing wall, spinning room, dumbell area and the spa area but I didn´t find good pictures of them. We´re working with the LAPT-system and also have Jukari and TRX in our studio which is a lot of fun *0* (but also very exhausting XD) And of cou

Surface Slip Stitch TutorialSurface Slip Stitch Tutorial2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I love how this stitch is an easy way to add detail or to make professional, clean-looking color changes.
I've used the Surface Slip Stitch in these projects:
- The black line for the froggy smile - I used it for the white "reflection" on the cherries and apples (back side facing out)
- I stitched it here with black around the penguin's face so that zig-zag line doesn't show where the colors meet.
- I used it here on the sleeves and shirt top and also the shoes - It's the dark pink stitching here around the front
Let me know what you think of this tutorial and if you have any questions about the surface slip stitch or crochet!
Little updateHello, dear friends ^^-Little update2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Franka and I are sewing a lot lately and we need a lot of time, because I´m trying to learn her how to sew
She will playing Prince Lir in our new musical "The Last Unicorn" and also a racoon and a bandit. I´ll be Lady Amalthea, a deer/stag (bambi *0*) and .... a bandit *lol* XD
I wonder if it will feel weird telling her on stage that I love her and kiss her. You know being watched by so many people XD
My wig and also my contacts arrived today and I just had to check them out:
I prefer playing funny people or guys, and I wanted to be in background this time. No leading role with lines and stuff, but Cynthie said she wouldn´t have enough time to play both, the Unicorn and Amalthea. So I suggested her to assume Amalthea if she wants to. She happily accepted and now I´m back to textlearning again... damn it!! XD XD XD
I hope I´ll be able to finish all costumes soon. If the sun will come out in the next few days I´ll take some pic

Putting the 'Art' in Artisan :: CalabarteWhen it comes to the woodworking galleries, there is one artist I love to have a regular peek at: Calabarte's. These stunning creations are made from calabash, otherwise known as gourds. When the fruit dries out, it produces a wood-like substance without a grain, making it a perfect choice for many artistic endeavours. Calabarte uses this medium to create spectacular and intricate carvings that beg to be stared at.Putting the 'Art' in Artisan :: Calabarte2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
If the carvings aren't eye-catching enough in their own right, just have a loot at how they transform when lit. The gorgeous surfaces come alive with colour, highlighting every tiny detail. And if that's still not enough, look at the mesmerising way they transform the room around them. Here is just a small selection of the multi-dimensional beauties to be found in his gallery.

Elitism, bullying, and lack of humanity in cosplayThe talented Yuuri-C wrote up a journal earlier on about her thoughts and feelings in regards to the nastiness she's received as a cosplayer. It influenced me to dwell deeper from both a personal and a third-person's perspective, to bring awareness to this ugly dilemma. It's quite ironic, actually- we cosplay to escape a dull and shallow world and yet it somehow seems to seep it's way back in.Elitism, bullying, and lack of humanity in cosplay1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I myself have been a victim of bullying for a very long time. First through school, and now through minor cosplay groups with a peculiar vendetta. It got to me at first, because I found out it was those close to me that were the perpetrators, but these days I see it as a laugh. I'm actually happy people go on 4-Chan and bitch about how much of a "slut" I am or how "fat" I am or pathetic my costumes are. It's all talk. They'd never say it to my face, and if they're so bored and insecure about themselves that they have to target me, then cheerio to that!

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:

As always~ English is not my native language so you might come across mistakes. My apologies! If anything is unclear feel free to ask me in the comments.
I'm just showing you what works for me and what's my personal liking. I'm focusing on eye make-up and additional tips. If you think this way of doing a boys cosplay make-up is is using way too much make-up that's totally fine. Everyone has his/her own preferences and this tutorial is just a hint who it can be done.
The shape of eyes differ a lot from one to another, so if you want to try it the way I do my make-up you might have to adjust it to your own eyes. Maybe you have already run into this problem before while seeing a well done eye make-up in a tutorial or worn by an asian cosplayer. Furthermore be aware of the fact that the shape of your eyebrows, wearing c
