Not everyone's Teiko uniforms are ready just yet, but we wanted to get a feel of things for the proper shoot so we did this for practice. It gave us a chance to try out our wigs and makeup and junk to see what we need to improve on for our actual cosplays.
The following portraits are the full-sized versions of what was squeezed into the above banner thing

So here are pictures from our day out last Sunday! Some are from my phone, others are from Facebook friends (Thanks, Jannibee and Benelyn!) and people who have sent me snapshots over Twitter!

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!2 years 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:

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

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-tutorial2 years 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
Vocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.Jin's Flower Wreath ProcessVocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometime last May, Kat moonlightflight and I cosplayed our favorite Vocaloid song, "Just Be Friends".
Their outfits seem simple at a glance, but that actually makes things more complicated sometimes. Hahah. Despite Luka's dress looking like something you could probably find in a mall, Charmie yaoiangel14 made the dress from scratch exactly as it looked in the artwork, just for Kat moonlightflight. Kat and I also did our best with the part of their outfits that had the most amount of detail (which also happens to be our favorite parts) the flower wreaths.
I have some pictures of the progress of my wreath, so I thought I'd share them. This probably isn't the best method of going about this, but this is how I did mine and I found it pretty easy. (I wish I could have taken more photos or a video, but to be honest I wasn't quite sure I'd pull this off at first. Hahah!)
Nostalgia's Official Contest(EXTENDED to 10th AUG)The Zeki Scrapbook ChallengeNostalgia's Official Contest(EXTENDED to 10th AUG)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello Zeki shippers! It gives me great pleasure to announce Nostalgia’s First Official Competition!
♘ A Zeki Scrapbook containing things that are only for the deviants to reveal …?
Basically, Yuuki or Zero makes a scrapbook for each other. The creative contents of the scrapbook are decided by the artists/deviants. It can contain pictures, short stories, comic strips, borders, etc. An example of an entry would be a page out of the scrapbook with a photograph pasted on it, along with interesting side notes or Yuuki’s doodles, etc. The theme is open and leaves room for a lot of creativity and artistic interpretation.
What is a Scrapbook?
It is a book with blank pages to which you attach photographs, letters, newspaper stories, etc., that help you remember a person or time. It is basically a book in which either Zero or Yuuki would paste photographs and other i

We are back and we want to be like we were in our first journal. So, I will be like Keith, again.
So, listen to me, you maggots, now I have something for you.
I think that you can be proud because we were waiting for it long time. Really, really long...
And I mean second CD OST of Shingeki no kyojin anime!
Yes, we of course have link for you!
It was published in 16 but we couldn't do nothing because we wanted to add something to this journal.
And by "this" I mean something from AION game.
I was playing with Impatient Soul last week and we were thinking "hey, maybe we should make a legion?". And yeah, we made it.
It is "Wings Of Freedom". We have only 10 players (because we are adding only fans from this anime/manga)
And now, something special. Your great Cloud (yeah, it's me) made his own cloak!
We are like this!
It is of course us!
And now something different. We will wait for new chapter and then we will add new journal.

Thief of the Year AwardSaw this floating about Tumblr. As far as hilarious instances of theft goes, this is the motherload. A particularly colorful individual decides to steal art on video, not only claiming other people's OC's as their own, but also putting "my crappy art" in the video description. Funny how that "crappy" art was apparently attractive enough for them to steal.Thief of the Year Award4 years ago in Personal More Like This
(Protip: if you're going to commit art theft, next time make sure you at least steal from artists who aren't widely recognized on the web and popular art web sites).

Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank***WARNING: THIS IS A SUPER LONG AND DETAILED POST!***Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank4 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.

Thoughts on Cosplay FundingWe feel so horribly uneasy about the new "cosplay funding" trend. I want to state first: yes, of course everyone has the right to spend their hard earned money the way he/she wants. And some people want simply to support the cosplayers they appreciate, which I also can understand very well. But the more I see this trend expanding, the more uncomfortable I feel.Thoughts on Cosplay Funding2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You know, in our eyes, it really depends on a project. Raising a money for a cosplay calendar to help sick kids? Sure. Raising money to produce a calendar for cosplay lovers? Of course. Raising money for a high-quality documentary about cosplay which will represent this hobby really well? Nice.
But to us, this line also ends somewhere here. We think that you can ask for big sums of money to create something unique, but then again, you really should be able to create it. Otherwise it's not justified in our eyes. And then again, what is a big sum of money?
I get that if you want to print a calendar, it may be around 1000-150
