But here's my lineup! Sorry, they're all WIP pictures...I don't really have any pictures of them from photoshoots (mainly because they're all fairly new costumes.)
Day 0: Joke cosplay with ValdaValsha
I won't reveal it until that day of AX. Not even Cheshire nor SWP know what it is!
This is the only hint you're getting.
(If you can figure it out from that--ssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh)
Also, this may appear on another day in addition to one of the other costumes if we don't get much time to cosplay it.
Day 1: Touya/Hilbert
Day 2: Koakuma
Day 3: Homura Akemi (the secret cosplay with the rest of Banzai!)

Monday I will be Shinji Ikari with ValdaValsha as my Kaworu-kun! (Just fyi, these cosplays are a total joke to us and we mainly just act like total derps in these. It's awesome.)

Internet Etiquette (Edited with critique advice)Some people brought up some pretty important points, so I've added some additional information about critiques below!Internet Etiquette (Edited with critique advice)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Something that's been bugging me a bit lately is how the DA community has sorta changed over the years (and not in a good way). People are more bold and will post whatever's on their mind, and while that can be a good thing in some scenarios, I feel that people oftentimes say things that they might not realize will hurt someone's feelings.
I generally get a lot of positive feedback, and it really helps! It's always great to know that someone likes my work, and it keeps me motivated to keep going with this hobby. However, I'm still a human being, and negative criticism can hurt me just as much as anyone else. I'm not sure what it is, but the amount of really negative comments has increased these past couple years, and it really discourages me from even using this website anymore. Many times I've considered just disabling comments entirely, but I feel that would

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-tutorial1 year 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
Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank***WARNING: THIS IS A SUPER LONG AND DETAILED POST!***Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get a lot of questions on how waselreins and I did the body makeup for our demon sisters cosplays. So here I'll tell ya'll how we did it, in addition to the whole story about the limo entrance. With pictures!!
On Saturday morning, I woke up at 5 AM to get ready for Kneesock. The limo was going to pick us up at 12:45 PM and I had to help the others get ready so I woke up the earliest to do as much of myself as I could. After the necessary prepping (shower/wash face/brush teeth/moisturize) I put in my contacts and wig cap first.
I used Ben Nye MagiCake Aqua Paint in red for my face and ears. I was told afterwards it's pretty bad for your skin so next time I'm gunna use Kryolan or Mehron, but for Fanime Ben Nye worked perfectly fine for me. Here's a bit more info on it here: http://stageandtheatermakeup.com/bnmagiaq.htm
Instead of water to spray onto the red makeup I used LiquiSet and a foundation brush to apply it to my face.

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!1 year 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:

Photography Tutorial 1 - BackgroundsBackgroundsPhotography Tutorial 1 - Backgrounds4 years ago in Personal More Like This
For the first lesson of photography, we’re going to start with BACKGROUNDS. The background is an important part of the picture, whether or not the main focus is on the doll/subject. No one wants to see random objects, people or a mess in the background. Do not ever assume that shallow depth of field or bokeh will ‘hide’ away the mess in the background in a blur. It is still possible to make out a human head or arm in the blurred background.
DO NOTE: This tutorial is extremely IMAGE HEAVY. Most photo examples are contributed by us, while some are credited to the respective owners. So all necessary photo copyrights still RETAIN. DO NOT USE ANY OF THE PICTURES OR ANY PART OF THE TUTORIAL WITHOUT OUR EXPLICIT WRITTEN PERMISSION.

Artist Alley for BeginnersHave you had a table at Artist Alley before? If you haven't I'm going to give you a list of suggestions for manning your table for the first time. These suggestions are not in any particular order.Artist Alley for Beginners4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Do not go overboard.
You may think your artwork and crafts are really great, but it always pays to be just a little bit cautious when having your first artist alley table. The reason for this is simple, you have to test your work in the consumer market. If you become really excited and buy 100 prints for your first convention and only 5 get sold... well you are out a lot of money. If you have many prints have small quantities printed, such as 5 - 10 prints and keep track of what prints sell this will be a good indicator for what prints are most popular.
2. Be reasonable on your prices.
If you are new to the art world you may think you can make a killing selling anime/manga prints. It can be tempting to want to charge $5, $10, $15 even $20 for one of your
