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

Just refreshing this as I realized none (Or very few) of my watchers have taken part, it has been almost entirely newcomers! I wondered if maybe this journal had suffered the "Unable to display" thing that has been happening to people lately?
EDIT: Updated rule number 2 so it's clearer.
To celebrate reaching 100 watchers I thought I'd do a giveaway! :iconlachoirplz:

On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a

I've still got a few more to post! My friends and I found ourselves really busy in the past months, so I just barely managed to find time to pick this photo series up again. Oh man, it was so great just looking through the photos from that dhurtay again.
About the location
A lot of you have been asking about the location, and I apologize but the activity organizers and property owner have advised us not to disclose that information. I hope it suffices to say it is not really a place for simply doing photoshoots, and we were just very fortunate to be invited. The place is private property reserved for special occasions. On a normal basis, people cannot just walk in there or take pictures without an appoint
Chinese Cosplay Magazine Cos TopI have some news for cosplayers (and cosplay photographers, of course).Chinese Cosplay Magazine Cos Top2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There is Chinese cosplay magazine "Cos Top", you can look on website (sorry Chinese only) http://costop.com/ Its very well-known at Southern China and have a lot of nice things inside :3
Magazine want to made spotlight for non Chinese cosplayers and publish photoshoots in each issue. If you have interest in publishing your photos in magazine, you can send me photos via e-mail email@example.com (please, write "Cos Top Magazine" as topic of your email).
What kind of photos magazine need
1. Please, first send small photos as preview (around 600x800 px), magazine editors will look through photos and I will contact you back, if your photos will be chosen. After that I will ask you for the big resolution photos (best is not smaller than 2574x3875 , small photos is bad for printing as you know.) So, please dont send photos that you dont have in a big resolution.
2. It must be COSPLAY photo, no

Talented Cosplay "STARS" visiting SG/MY?Whoa this is sure one crazy year. Not only we have tons of bands coming over to SG/MY. We have Japanese artists coming over. What's more we EVEN has SO many Asia Star cosplayers coming down this year. Okay I don't really like to use the word "celebrities/stars" for cosplayers because I don't really like to refer them as celebrities. (I seriously had mix feeling when they were being mobbed at AFAMY ;___ Amazing cosplayers that work hard portraying their character have the recognition they deserve perhaps?Talented Cosplay "STARS" visiting SG/MY?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

What a pityWe have seen and awed (and nosebleed) at a lot of very good cosplayers. The way they trim and style their wig to impossible anime level, the eye makeup that electrify you, the self tailored costume that fits their figure so well and their epic prop-making skills! You bet they have worked very hard and hone their skills over time.What a pity2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Soon almost every cosplayer will graduate and proceed on with their next phrase of life. It is so sad T_T but it was certainly one of the best time in their lives! These cosplay Senpai(s) would have amass a great deal of experience and have a lot of information and knowledge on the character their cosplay. All these be gone when they graduate.
残念ですね! What a pity!
I was just thinking..
Won't it be great if every generation of cosplayer could pass on their skills, knowledge and information to the next generation.
The entire cosplay community will get better and better and more people will take cosplay seriously.

Are there places were street photography is impossible? Are there countries easier than others, or harder than others? How is it street shooting like in exotic places, or places you never visited, places that are completely different from what you are used to? I asked a few street photographers around the world to share with us their experiences.

Japan is a fascinating country with an unusual mix of the traditional and modern. It's a magical place filled with anime, cosplayers, samurai, sushi, and all the strangest things imaginable. Wrong! Well, not really, but this is just the cliché, outer covering. When newcomers just scratch the surface of this country, this cliché is all they find. But, in reality, Japan is a place like any other: full of human beings who have normal lives with all their little dr
