Just to be clear (cosplay is for fun)I've been coming across a lot of topics lately about he said she said cosplay crap about so and so being better than that person over there and such.Just to be clear (cosplay is for fun)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I feel that this needs to be said publicly for people to read, think about, and go forward with.
Cosplay is NOT about having the best costume ans showing someone up.
Cosplay is NOT about the attention.
Cosplay is NOT your own personal ego trip to fame.
Cosplay gets such a bad rep from people who do the above things. Don't care about who is better than you or who is not. If you're wearing the same costume then obviously you like that same thing. Suck up your ego and go talk to them. Be kind! Make a friend with someone who likes the same thing as you. Don't be snoody about it.
Cosplay is meant to be fun! And who knows, that person who you think has a better costume than you may be more than glad to help you improve or learn some things you may not have before. You can't better yourself if you don't open your mind.
In the flip scenario, don'
Tutorial: How to straighten a wigOkay, I promised to translate the tutorials I wrote some time ago and today I'm starting with "How to straighten a wig". Please notice English is not my native language, so you might run into spelling, grammar or punctuation mistakes. I'm really sorry and hope you're able to understand it anyways. If you run into any kind of problems while reading feel free to ask in the comments.Tutorial: How to straighten a wig2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are able to understand German you can go to my Animexx weblog and read it there :3 Unfortunately dA doesn't support embedding my pics into the text so I had to put them directly over/under the text. Sorry for that!
I'm just showing you what works for me, so this is a "you can try this" and not a "this is the only way you can do it".
As you might know wigs are made out of plastic fibers. Plastic is a heat bendable material, so this is the essence of the both methods I will show you. Styling your wig with heat will also work for curling it, making spikes and so on. Please be careful whenev

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

MikeDiMartinoTalksGeneYang'scomics,Season2AndMore!CBR TV has posted an interview with Michael Dante DiMartino to talk about the Legend of Korra, and it's expansion into comics. He also discusses how the comics tie into the Legend of Korra, and the future of the series.MikeDiMartinoTalksGeneYang'scomics,Season2AndMore!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the topics questioned by Mike, followed by his response:
On the impetus for bringing "Avatar" to comic books: It's a great way to revisit the old characters without having to do a full animation and everything… Obviously, 'Legend of Korra' was getting rolling so we didn't have time to do two series or anything like that, so I really like the comic outlet as a way to get these new stories out there.
On whether the end of "Avatar" was planned or developed over time: "I honestly didn't think it was going to get that big a reaction that it would carry to this day that it's like the number one question people continue to ask us. We had ideas of how to, you know, approach that story and was it going to be animated or could we tell it in a different way, and wh

Apparently there's Drama on my page???Wow, so my tumblr followers told me about some drama going on my Archive Page for Raindrops.Apparently there's Drama on my page???10 months ago in Personal More Like This
A little amused but after checking I found that it was indeed true and a certain user ragequit on Raindrops due to the lack of updates. A couple of things I would like to address since I've been busy, I haven't checked DA in a while so I haven't been able to read all of the comments. SO!
1) This was really amusing to read on some level.
2) Thank you to everyone who defended me.
3) Sorry to those who agree
4) Thanks to the rest for understanding!
And most importantly!!! I mentioned in the past that my average speed for writing Raindrops is usually one chapter per year. Usually because life gets in the way like... work, and friends, and other interests. And just because I don't get to Raindrops doesn't mean that I've abandoned it. It just means that I haven't gotten to it. In fact, I've spent the last several weekends writing and rewriting the script for Chapter 8 (which is like the longest chapt

- Metrocon! Which was amazing. Another fantastic year where we met some fantastic people! Will we be back next year? Honestly, we cannot say. We're not sure we can continue to afford the flight costs, so it's up in the air right now.
- Abunaicon! Dutch people are crazy. Nuff said. <3
- Alcon! Another amazing weekend! We were kinda zoned out for some of it, due to the fact we were so close to getting our house... but still an amazingly fun event.
- HOUSE! Which we have. And despite the boiler problems, everything is now finally going smoothly thanks to you guys!
- JCon! Our first time at this event, and damn it was fun! Definitely worth doing, and hopefully we'll be back next year!
So... yeah. It's been kinda busy to say the least!

What a great weekend we had in the Netherlands!
Abunaicon was a fantastic event for us, and went far better than we had expected! Despite some of them being early, all our panels did really well, and the cosplay contests were awesome! We met a few familiar faces, but made plenty of new friends! We really hope we can return for next year... Fingers crossed!
And now, time for Alcon!
I'm desperately trying to get costumes finished in time, but at the moment, the line up looks to be:
Matt Miller (Saints Row 3)

Tony Stark (Avengers)
