So we went to Toycon last Saturday and as usual I... didn't really get to take pictures of toys and stuff. It was so crowded around the merchandise hall that I couldn't stop and take photos because people were constantly threading through and shoving. It was like a river of people with an actual current, hahah! Sometimes I'd find a friend to chat with but we'd eventually be pulled apart by the tide, it was kind of funny.
I wanted to wear something simple and comfortable so I posted on my Facebook that I would wear my old Ichigo cosplay in his Karakura High uniform. The Bleach manga is so crazy now that it just made me miss the days when Bleach was simple.
I think this is the last decent picture of myself that I have wearing this, and it was taken ages ago.
And here it is on me again, with a new wig, better contact lenses, better wig styling and cosplay makeup skills (somewhat), and Kon plush that was give
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-tutorial1 year 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
New rules (please read)So, I've heard it already often, from many sides... and I thought about it since a long time too.New rules (please read)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now I've even got someone who told me directly about it and I decided to change our rules.
I know some of you might think that's unfair, but I think that many of you will agree with me.
There are lots of edited screenshots from the actual FT show, with the original characters (like Lucy, Natsu, Erza, Gray and co.) over colored and changed into some OC's.
Don't understand me wrong now, I don't have anything against OC's (okay I am not a big fan of OC x any character of the real show but yeah... I won't hate on you because of that xD) actually I think OC's are great
BUT I myself don't like these edits. They make me and I think many others too feel like their work isn't really appreciated due to the many likes and/or followers that these people gain with edited screenshots, just because the pictures don't have "mistakes" (in anatomy as example) in them.
And as I said there were lots of peo

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

WIP: Perona from One Piece for Italy :DHello my friends~WIP: Perona from One Piece for Italy :D1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Elffi visited me for 1,5 weeks and we tried to finish as many parts as possible on our ONE PIECE costumes for the "COSPLAY SUMMER PARTY" in Italy where we will be cosplay guests <3.
Well this is my costume so far.....
Well some words about the costume ...
Oh my my I really understand now the troubles that One Piece cosplayers have with their costumes XD. The proportions are really really hard to get for a normal human body. The anime/manga has such a cartoony style that bodies are waaaays out or normal body shapes *laugh*. Also in every scene, every Artwork and every figure Perona's costume looks totally different x.x.....I tried to use the most references from a figure I found. Still I failed a bit the proportion of the skirt T_T...the tips got too pointy and long and the stars are too high ;O;....it was really not easy to get this.

with some silly pictures and my random comments with a lot of IRONY ;D LOL
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*.

Microsoft Employees Disrupt Wii U Best Buy EventsRemember how Nintendo was showcasing some of their E3 games at participating Best Buy stores around the country? Well, apparently Microsoft employees have been hired to go to these events and preach about the Xbox One and make comments like "why would you buy a outdated Wii U when the Xbox One is right around the corner?"Microsoft Employees Disrupt Wii U Best Buy Events2 years ago in Personal More Like This
However, the employees aren't getting what they hoped for. Most customers just start bashing the Xbox One in response. Seriously, Microsoft, the people attending these Best Buy Wii U events are people who are intimately familiar with the crap you pulled at E3. They ain't takin' your shit.
At first I thought this might just be a case of one really loyal Microsoft employee taking matters into his own hands (especially since the original source was /v/), but reports have come in from numerous Best Buy's around the country that indicate many Microsoft employees have ambushed the demo lines trying to persuade people to switch to the Xbox One.
