There already are many useful tutorials about basic make-up and posing, on dA and over the net, so I won't repeat what has already been said in them. I recommend reading them before reading my notes. Links below:

Ahri Cosplay - Tails TutorialHi again loves!Ahri Cosplay - Tails Tutorial1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
So sorry it's taken me so long to post on here for the next section on the Ahri cosplay. I have already done a tutorial on her sleeves, skirt and her top. I started her tails first and finished them last because well, they were rather frustrating, and I am in the process of reworking them. Once I completely finish my rework on her tails, I will post another how to!
As always, the pictures will be numbered ;3
What you will need:
*At the very minimum you will need 2 yards of white fake fur. I am lucky enough to have an enormous fabric place called Fabric Depot which has it's own section for fake furs! I got one that was long, straight, soft and beautiful! Fake fur can be pretty spendy, I got mine for 29.99 a yard (1)
*Firm Foam (I cut mine appropriately) (2)
*Stuffed animal stuffing
*Industrial Strength Velcro
*Some fabric or a small belt.
*Some hot glue and a hot glue gun
*Some (preferably) white velcro
First you will decide how large you want your t

Rapunzel's Wig FAQ and an InterviewHey everyone!Rapunzel's Wig FAQ and an Interview3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a while since I last checked in. In fact, it's been so long that I just realised I never posted the cosplay interview I did here (and that was in January!). Japan Cinema invited me to chat to them for a while for their cosplay corner - if you're interested, you can read about it over here.
In other news, I have finally gotten around to doing a photoshoot for Rapunzel! Thank you so much to :iconstrawdoll: for being such an amazing photographer...you're so nice to me :'D And so, since I'm about to attack you all with photos, I figured it would be a great time to finally, finally post the FAQ I've been promising for her wig. Here we go!

Catwoman Costume Making ArticleCatwoman Costume Making Article2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I finally get to translate article about my “Batman Returns” Catwoman costume. And just right time for Halloween x)
I'm very sorry if there are mistakes in the text! And I'm sorry that there are no wip photos, I did not make them, unfortunatelly. But in this article I tried to upload the materials, that helped me to make my own costume.
Well, first of all few words about why I chose this version. I’m a cat person, I always had cats at home and I love them very much. So it’s not a surprise that I also love such an amazing character as Catwoman. And my first meeting with her happened, when I was a child thanks to Tim Burton’s movie “Batman Returns”. I was amazed by Michelle Pfeiffer’s acting and since then her Selina Kyle is the only one for me. She’s beautiful, dangerous and a little crazy, exactly how Catwoman should be. I always loved the stories about transformation of

A couple of weeks ago, we attended an event called Fantasy Quest 2. (The very first Fantasy Quest was when we cosplayed Harry Potter characters.)
It was a pretty special day for us because four years ago, we had our first shoot and bonding day with Ysabel SavingSunlight at the venue, Fernwood Gardens.
We've been really into Adventure Time, so many months ago we decided we'd do AT cosplay, and that Fantasy Quest would be a fun opportunity to do so. It feels weird how we had been looking forward to this event for ages, and now it's over!

Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-upBasic Information:Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As said before: English is not my native language. I'm sorry for every mistake I made while writing. I'm just showing you what works for me. This is a "you can" tutorial and not "you must". I hope this gives you a basic idea on how I do it and helps you as well. I will not show you any brands of make-up I work with since they are different from country to country. I'm not a dermatologist or a professional make-up artist, so I can't give you tips for "problem skin" cases like acne and so on. Please consult a doctor and let them give you tips for what's best to use before buying something randomly
If you don't know what make-up to use out of the hilarious amount of available products in stores ask a vendor in the store of your choice. They will help you.
This tutorial will be the base for every upcoming make-up related tutorial I will post in the future.
First of all I clean my skin and apply vanishing crème. It's always good to do so

This part of the tutorial is mostly thanks to my wife chibinis-chan who did the modeling for it.
She is doing her eye make-up after applying basic make-up like shown before. She will show you one make-up with different colors. I'm holding this tutorial very short with just the steps as such because I already wrote all the tips for applying in the first part of this tutorial.
First she is using black kajal to draw a line on the eyelid and under the waterline of her right eye. The line under her eye is about 1/3 of the complete length of the waterline.
After this she uses brown eye shadow to blend it a lit

My classic Batgirl suit and my Mera suit are finished so far. (except for a few little changes on Mera's sleeves). Don't worry, the yellow pouch will be exchanged with a red one (The yellow one is for my black suit). I just wanted to see how it looks complete. For Batgirl the only thing I have to do now is the cape. I am really looking forward to wear the whole costume!
I also finished Dove's base suit. I'll work on the accessoires in the following days and hope to finish it quickly. <3 I love Babs, Dawn and Mera sooooo much! I'm so inspired and motivated at the moment. Great start into 2013!
