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!)

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.

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:

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!

Well, another Tsukino-Con has come and gone, but was it ever a great one. I had so much fun meeting some nice new people, and reuniting with old con buddies. One of the highlights was when my friends at OppositeCosplay were invited as special guests! It was really exciting for them, since it was their first time being invited to a con. They did some good panels, including How to Make a Onesie and Intro to Lolita Fashion (which were both very informative). It was also just plain awesome to hang out with them, because they really are wonderful, friendly people. I also filmed my first cosplay showcase videos! Got clips of lots of my friends, such as KingdomZelaybli, Myelix, AnyaPanda, Fantasyrhia, Yukibun, TheRiverStudio, and many more. I tried really hard to make the videos look nice, but of course it's my first time so my homemade camera stabilizer skills aren't perfect. XP Nonetheless, I think they turned out really w

"Imaginary Realms" – Team Blue and Team Orange face off in a fantasy cosplay Nerd War challenge, hero-vs.-villain style. The losing team must send two of their own to the Nerd-Off, from which one will never return. As the competition heats up, an unusual roll of the dice determines who will stay and who will go. Hosted by Curtis Armstrong and Robert Carradine.
Guest Judges: Adam Busch, Yaya Han and George Takei.
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.

I brought her with me to PA this time. I left her with my mom the last few times, and mom told me that while I was gone, Anna became "angry" because I wasn't there. And while I thought she might be kind of nervous about the new house and all, she's the happiest being on this earth right now. Now, it's hard to explain how I know that, because she is a rat, but trust me, if she were human, she'd be having giggle-fits. I'm not sure why she's so happy about this, but that's good!
Anyway, I had her out on this table while I was working on a commission. She was happy as a lark, exploring the new territory, but then after a while she started "bugging" me. And I should have known something was
