I'm happy to present my friends who had come together to do this group cosplay! It feels surreal to me to have friends who happen to have faces who suit the characters
Mesti Datang! The HobbyCon 2013 Experience!Earlier this year, my friends and I were invited to be overseas guests for HobbyCon in Sabah, Malaysia.Mesti Datang! The HobbyCon 2013 Experience!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Time flew by very fast, and before we knew it...
Our first day was spent doing a lot of eating, thanks to our guide Alyssa I will justify it as us fueling up for an action-packed weekend! We tried nasi lemak for the first time (LOVED IT), had some shaved ice desserts after, then a big dinner of clay pot rice, stir-fry noodles with clams, really tasty chicken wings, etc. and THEN we still raided Pick N' Pay for our midnight snacks because we love convenience stores and we wanted to try things we don't have in Manila.
We planned our cosplays ahead with Team Kachang Puteh, the guests from Singapore. Our theme for the first day of HobbyCon was Shingeki no Kyojin!

Hammer Time! Thor X Reader"(Name)?" Called Thor, the Asgardian Prince. You were assigned to help Thor 'adjust' to life on Earth, which was going okay... until he saw a commercial for a horror movie on the square T.V you had at your house. Let's just say that it started out with, "Help me! I'm trapped!" And ended with you needing to buy a new T.V.Hammer Time! Thor X Reader2 weeks ago in Art Features More Like This
Anyway, Thor was looking for you since he had a question about the Midgardian music that was currently blasting throughout your house. it didn't sound like English, so he was utterly confused.
When he did find you, however, you looked like you were riding a horse while swinging a rope around your head. You were currently in the kitchen baking cookies when this song came on your Ipod/home stereo system. So... of course you had to dance.
Thor observed your wiggling body in admiration, as he had grown a small crush on you. When he told Tony, the only advice he got was to 'Grow a pair,' and 'Tap dat ass,' whatever that meant.
He kept his eyes on you as you danced thro

Top Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring IllustratorsI wrote this thing. If you want to repost it on your blog or journal, please credit me with: Article by illustrator Kristina Gehrmann - www. mondhase.deTop Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring Illustrators2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Selling yourself as a beginner
I found a prime example of this in a forum for artists seeking work. The thread title was „Starting-out artist looking for a chance",, and the thread told that the artist is „looking for a client for whom I may draw" and has „just graduated from art college".
We all were at this point once, but usually it takes too long to realize that „beginner" is the wrong mindset, even if you are one. Such statements sound like excuses and are guaranteed to weaken your position. Don't make excuses. Do not justify your work, and do not justify your prices. This is a tricky habit to acquire since we're not very confident by nature, but remember the image you wan

Ha ha ha, best headline ever.
Good, you opened this journal. Don't worry, no art theft shenanigans have transpired that triggered this entry. I merely want to share my thoughts on "ripping off" and "originality" with you, both as an artist and novelist who's been on the Internet for 12 years.
This is not a rant - it's strictly comical, but also educational. I'm known for my laid-back, funny and matter-of-fact attitude
I'll give you a different point of view today, because if there is something I despise more than art theft, it's people accusing others of it. Anti art theft ninjas, also known as: people who have likely not had enough science in school. They often have no compelling evidence. They often have wrong evidence (even worse). They often do it on a whim, a feeling. And they rarely do it silently, rampaging publicly instead, thus driving a witch hunt.
First of all, let me tell you something th

So we went to Toycon last Saturday and as usual I... didn't really get to take pictures of toys and stuff. It was so crowded around the merchandise hall that I couldn't stop and take photos because people were constantly threading through and shoving. It was like a river of people with an actual current, hahah! Sometimes I'd find a friend to chat with but we'd eventually be pulled apart by the tide, it was kind of funny.
I wanted to wear something simple and comfortable so I posted on my Facebook that I would wear my old Ichigo cosplay in his Karakura High uniform. The Bleach manga is so crazy now that it just made me miss the days when Bleach was simple.
I think this is the last decent picture of myself that I have wearing this, and it was taken ages ago.
And here it is on me again, with a new wig, better contact lenses, better wig styling and cosplay makeup skills (somewhat), and Kon plush that was give

I am overwhelmed by the rush of new content. Feel free to make suggestions for a clothing design, and I will put it up until I get the QR code working with Sable. I have one design that will be featured on a future Youtube video at the end of June, as part of an anniversary celebration.
Speaking of which, Resetti is no longer here to rant at you for resetting!!...unless you built for him a Reset Surveillance Center. We no longer work for Tom Nook. I am the supreme dicta...I mean mayor and everyone is my slav....I mean townspeople.

Katsucon re-cap, and upcoming plansSo, before I knew it, I looked up at the calendar, already April 18th, and 2 months past Katsucon. O.o;; Sorry guys! My life has just been a whirlwind lately with some important personal life decisions and changes taking place. I'll get more into that later, but first I want to touch on one of the best convention experiences I've yet to encounter, KATSUCON!Katsucon re-cap, and upcoming plans2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Katsucon, Feb 17-19 2012, National Harbor, MD.
Friday: I don't cosplay in larger groups very often, but I was very excited to be a part of an iDOLMster group! We all coordinated online months prior to the convention so that we could get matching fabric and look as uniform as we could.
Also, we did our best at learning one of the iDOLMster dances from the game, and we were lucky enough to be filmed by the innovative convention videographer Ackson Lee, and featured in his Katsucon video
Ohayocon 2013 + Updates~So to whom it may concern, this is my obligatory Ohayocon journal + extras. So wow. Its almost been a month since this convention (how time flies by). I went the whole weekend and had a pretty good time.Ohayocon 2013 + Updates~1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Friday I went as Rhyme and fell in love with her outfit almost immediately. I say "almost" because we parked in the Nationwide (I think) parking garage and had about a 5 minute walk through the skywalks/parking garage to get somewhere with heat. It was pretty freaking cold, BUT once we were inside the convention center I was happy to finally be wearing one of the most comfortable cosplays I've ever had on. (Like seriously). The skull pin on my hat then proceeded to break off into my hand two seconds in the door but it was minor compared to what happened to :icontwilightproductions: big sister cosplay. That thing just fell apart everywhere to the point where some very nice con goers asked if she needed some glue. So to the rescue, the brought her some elmers glue and I snitched some to
Queen of the Mary-SuesA list of traits that make Jean Grey a Mary-Sue (and why I hate her,) inspired by a conversation I had with VertFaereQueen of the Mary-Sues3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Highly persuasive, regardless of the actual content of their conversations. Everyone finds her opinions are just better than their own - even when they're usually stubborn bastards. This is especially likely in an Author Tract.
-Jean has this one in the bag. The first example of this shown would be when Fred Dukes is first introduced in X-Men #3. The Blob refuses to listen to any of the other X-Men, but as soon as Jean effing Gray steps out, he stops and listens. But throughout every storyline, Jean is always right, and Always the voice of reason, even to characters (like Cal Rankin for one) who don't give a shit about reason.
Incorruptible. In fact, unaware of the possibility of temptation.
-Most X-Men have this trait, but Jean takes it to a whole new level.
I Just Want to Be Normal: Being super awesome is a curse.
-Another common trait am

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!10 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:
