Vocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.Jin's Flower Wreath ProcessVocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.2 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!)

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.

"It’s hot." Diana flopped onto the couch and then slid off it to lie on the floor.
"Stop complaining." Averia waved one hand tiredly at her sister. It was the middle of summer and their air conditioning had broken down. Their Aunt Vanille had come over to try and fix it, but all she had done was void the warranty after turning it into a killer robot.
"But it is hot." Anna joined Diana on the floor. "I think my brain is melting."
"It isn’t that bad." Elsa shrugged and continued reading her book on Cocoon’s history.
"Wait…" Vanille sat up from her position on the floor. After subduing the air condition turned killer robot, Fang and Lightning had "suggested" she stay home and watch the kids while they went out to buy a new one. "Why aren’t you hot?"
All the kids perked up.
"Yeah…" Diana eyed Elsa suspiciously. "Are you hiding ice cream?"

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!1 year 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:

Thusday, 24th May:
I arrived at the Airport in the afternoon and the organization team picked me up from there . The hotel room was directly next to the con. It was still some time till Elffi's plane would arrive, so Christian (organization team member) and I took a walk in a nearby park. I got so distracted by wild DOGS, BIRDS and CATS everywhere *-*! I could pet a cute wild kitty <3 awww~~
The we went to the airport to pick up Elffi. We were standing there pretty long and I got bored and annoyed XD;....so the first thing I did after he came out of the baggage claim room, was kicking his leg and asking why the hell that took so long ;O;~~~
We haven't seen each other since WCS, so that really heartwarming kick was the nicest greeting I could get in mind *LOL*.

The Vestige (How It Could Have Gone)Fang had never expected things to go this way. She had only just graduated from the Eidolon Program. If she was lucky, she should have been assigned to an Eidolon with a more experienced pilot. But she’d never thought that she would be assigned to this particular pilot.The Vestige (How It Could Have Gone)2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
"I assume that you are familiar with Captain Farron?" Marshal Amodar asked.
Fang nodded slowly. Meeting Amodar was, in itself, incredible. The man was a living legend, one of the first Eidolon pilots, and one of the men personally responsible for ensuring the survival of at least a few of her people.
Besides, everyone knew who Captain Claire “Lightning” Farron was. She was the older half of the already legendary Farron sisters. Between the two of them, they had killed more than half a dozen fal’Cie, most of them in brutally efficient fashion.
But during their last battle, the fal’Cie, the first Category IV on record, had managed to damage Odin’s Conn-Pod. The Farrons had finished the
Another Glimpse Into A FF XIII x Frozen FutureSome of you might recall the idea I proposed, in which Fang and Lightning take in a young Anna and Elsa to help Elsa learn to control her magic. According to that idea, Fang and Lightning would basically raise Anna and Elsa as their own, and the two princess would come into contact with Diana and Averia (Lightning and Fang’s two children).Another Glimpse Into A FF XIII x Frozen Future4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here’s another glimpse into that universe (I promise that I’m trying to pull together something coherent for this idea so that it can get written out properly).

One of the first things that Elsa learned about school was that there was an order to everything. Nowhere was this more evident than in the playground. The teachers couldn’t be everywhere all the time, so it was inevitable that some of the kids tried to throw their weight around.
The first time that someone tried to pick on Anna, Elsa had put herself between the bully and her little sister. But no one knew she was a princess here, and

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*

Somehow, this silly page has hit 9 million views!
Just to be absolutely clear, I do not think the views make me any better than anyone else. I mean, I'm sure some of those are from people who don't even like me. But I guess my point is that it's crazy to imagine that this page has been opened up that many times, and I can't help wondering where all these hits have come from. And I just feel so grateful that a select few people in those millions have come to be irreplaceable friends to me.
It's been a wild ride with all of you guys through all this time. To me this isn't just a page where I simply showcase my artwork or the cosplay photos my friends and I come up with. This site has opened up so many opportunities for me, and has introduced me to some of the most wonderful people I've met in my life.

Interview: Yuegene Fay (TH)Interview: Yuegene Fay (TH)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You would never guess that Yuegene Fay from Thailand was a former bookworm. Visual kei bands have changed her looks and not only; she put her perfectionism into play and joined another dimension where the popularity of comic book characters joins the local and unique version to approach and tailor them. Not only the visual graphic world of games and manga, but also the musical world has become overtly visual in expression and image. It is yet another golden proof that Vocaloid project has a huge influence over the current cosplaying imagery. We should remember that Asia does not equal Japan, and that Japanese pop has been skilfully transformed and expanded into regional styles and fan communities.
