COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!Hi guys!! Thank you as always to all watchers and everyone who faves and comments - I'm so sorry I don't have much time these days to reply to everything, but I definitely do read and appreciate them all!COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!
I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^ That said, hope you enjoy! *chu*
Any questions please feel free to ask!
Ahri cosplay- Skirt TutorialHi again guys!Ahri cosplay- Skirt Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here is the tutorial for the skirt. I started similalarily to how I did with the top- But first! Let's talk supplies.
You are gonna need:
*White fabric (I used some satin)
*Fabric paint- I use Jacquard brand - Gold an a red. (5)
*Paint brushes of all sizes- primarily smaller and thinner ones.
*White thread of course
----I will correspond the bottom pictures with the points below----
You can start by taking your measurements- using the pattern method from the shirt create a pattern. Make sure to make the pattern about 2 inches larger than you are to allow enough space for sewing/breathe room. It is also important that you make sure to make the top layer of the skirt larger at the bottom so that it sticks out in the nice points like she does in game
I made my skirt in 2 different pieces. The top half and the bottom half.
1) First I will talk about the bottom half of the skirt;
I first created two pieces to sew together in the front and the back (The seems wil
Ahri Cosplay - Sleeves TutorialHello again!Ahri Cosplay - Sleeves Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is the tutorial for the sleeves of her dress. It is debatable whether or not her sleeves are attached to her top or not. I personally made them separate because It would be even more constricting than it already is XD. I would have liked to made the top of my sleeves a little bigger and I may redo them- but that's for something else. :3
In my first initial post about Ahri's top I posted a picture of the patterns I made, the stencil on the left is the one I made for the sleeve. I know it looks big, but it should! You want to leave enough room at the top and the bottom of the sleeve so it will flair out.
--- As always, pics coordinating with numbers! <3 ---
What you will need:
* Red fabric (I used satin)
* Red thread
* A strip of your white fabric
* Your fabric paints
* Paint brushes and some water/ a paper towel or two
* Optional; Wire (used to shape the top of the sleeves)
First you will make your pattern, measure the top of your arm and stretch it out so that you

Kuro Cosplay Tips [Alois Trancy]This time another member has taken the time to write out cosplay tips for Alois Trancy. As an Alois cosplayer myself, I have also written in my own ideas! Please read if you wish to gain tips, helpful hints, and advice if you plan to cosplay this fabulous character or already do <3Kuro Cosplay Tips [Alois Trancy]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Provided to you by :iconmasterciel-bocchan: and :iconcult-clueless:
Alois is a boy who wears short shorts. Easy enough, but that's what you would think. When cosplaying as Alois, you want to make sure that your shorts are not reaching your knees. They have to be at least mid thigh or shorter. As for his stockings, they go above his knee and never touch his shorts. You'd be surprised how many people just wear black pantyhose.
Alois's ring is also on his right index finger, always~!
Now this is just a petpeeve of mine but when the shoes are just regular high top heels it bothers me. He wears boots!

Dig what you want, little man.Made a pilgrimage to my local walmart today to scope out the new pony section they have up. Snagged some napkins and drinking cups, then headed to the pony aisle. I kinda waited back, because there was a family checking out the pony toys as well. There was a mother, a son, and a daughter. The daughter looked around 12-13, the son looked about 7-8. She was holding on to a Rarity plushie while her little brother asked her to grab a Fluttershy for him on the shelf. The daughter basically said "You can't have her, it's a show for girls! You're not a little girl!" The mother basically flashed a glance at her and said "Now come on ____". The little guy looked close to tears as his sis teased him semi-playfully....Dig what you want, little man.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

❀ DRAGON*CON WRAP-UP ❀
I think the best word I can use to describe this convention is "overwhelming." It was an amazing weekend, but boy, it really wore me out, both physically and mentally. Between claustrophobia and social fatigue I didn't do too well with the crowds and had to retreat back to the quiet of our hotel room a few times throughout each day just to recharge.
But in spite of that it was a lot of fun! I absolutely loved the atmosphere and the congoers themselves - it's definitely an older, more mature, and honestly nicer attitude than what you see at most anime cons nowadays. So I really enjoyed how everyone was so friendly and I really felt like part of the Dragon*Con family, even though it was my first time going!
Plus, the level of craftsmanship and creativity was beyond amazing. I'm seriously motivated to step it up from here on out! (Let's just say... there's talk of

- 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!

After AbunaiconWhat a weekend.After Abunaicon2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kelly and I are finally back home after a very early flight back to London. I have to say, it was all worth it.
Abunaicon was truly fantastic! It was great meeting some of our followers from the Netherlands and pretty much everyone we met was just lovely!
It was a great test run for Gambit (my sclera contacts arrive tomorrow!!) and I've now decided to make a Human!Wheatley cosplay. Ha ha! It will be fun to be an idiotic character again.
Highlights of Abunaicon:
*Judging the Eurocosplay.
*Being chased by Batman.
*Creating world domination plans with the Joker and Harley while dressed as Loki.
*Invading panels and generally being mental.
*Killing Coulson over and over and over and OVER again!
*Squaring off to a certain Hawkeye everytime I saw her.
*ALL THE DESSERTS!!!
*Being told by four people that I look like Tom Hiddleston.
Twas an AMAZING weekend just so tiring. Phew! I really hope we can come back next year and share in all the fun. Now to plan for Alcon!
