Team Sasuke at Ozine Fest Day 3
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!
Let's start with a group shot! Our theme was Sasuke and his teachers (and his flirt of an alternate universe self from Road to Ninja)

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:

In 2008, I started working for my father's company in the oil business as an IT Assistant while going to college. I never intended to make a career out of working for my father. However, a year after I started working there the company was in desperate need of a new website and complete revamping of our branding. My father was well aware of my hobby with digital art and experience coding so he asked me if I would take on the website and re-branding inbetween working on IT jobs and I agreed. A few weeks later, I presented my ideas for the site and branding, which he approved and I immediately began working on the implementation of both.
Once everything went live I received a promotion that essentially put me in charge of all future advertising for the company. Basically, everything from email signatures, business cards, brochures, to animated presentations are designed and/or reviewed by me before they are seen by clients. Currently, I am

Stupid wrist problems, and ebay items up for saleHey everyone! Been a while since the last update. I've been busy as always with baby Ember. Mom-ing is a lot of work! I'm hoping to have a baby dragon sale soon, but my wrist has been acting up a lot lately... hauling Ember around all day has really caused my tendonitis to flare up something fierce, and then sculpting on top of that hasn't helped. Normally, I'd just go get a cortisone shot, but they won't give me anymore. The next step has to be surgery, unfortunately.Stupid wrist problems, and ebay items up for sale1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So I've been resting my hand for a couple days (which is making me crazy, I have unfinished dragons just sitting here taunting me O_o) I was hoping to put off surgery for as long as possible, but my stupid wrist is going downhill so fast it has to happen in the next month probably. 6 weeks of recovery and downtime isn't looking very fun, especially with a baby. Kinda freaking out. Ugh :/
Anyway, enough about that. I've listed a couple more Dice Dragons on Ebay. Check them out if you fancy a bid:

anxietyFirst of all.. I didn't expect to gain so much appreciation over this piece.anxiety3 years ago in Personal More Like This
From all over people have expressed how they feel about it. People have gone into large detail on what they like about this.
I want to talk about anxiety in general and how the image came about.
3 years ago I was hit hard by the disorder. It was so bad I got suicidal at points. Not the attention starving kind. Seriously contemplating it. Life was hell.
To someone who hasn't experienced it. I'll try and describe it from my own experience and point of view.
At any random point in the day I can get these attacks. During these attacks I'm overwhelmed with the feeling of imminent death. No rational thinking can erase the thought or feeling. Imagine having a gun held to your head. And you know it's going to go off. You just don't know when. That's what happens when I experience an attack.
I get these daily.
I hide it well from people around me. By just walking away. Or keeping to myself a lot.

How To Photograph Your Paintings
In this article I want to discuss a common problem that some traditional artists have. That's photographing your paintings. Whether it be for selling prints or just getting your art noticed online the importance of having paintings look great is key. If your fortunate enough to have a scanner for smaller pieces then that's great! But if your working on large canvases or paper then you can run into issues. The most common problem artists have are Glare, Blur and Color. All of which will be discussed in this article.
Anyone who has worked with acrylics and oils knows what a problem this can be when your trying to take a picture of a painting. This is not as much a issues for a artist working with watercolors

Your friend named Katy begged you not to move to Japan.Today you and your mom was going to move to Japan."I'm sorry,but I have to go." you hugged you friend one last time. When you and your mom made it in Japan,you had a bad feeling,"Mom are you sure about this?" "Yes I am." your mom said,"I'm sure about this." you followed your mom to your apartment.
You walked around park of Japan,"This place isn't bad." "You better rethink about that." you turned around to see Tori,your bully back at your old school."Don't tell me that you moved to Japan too." 'How the hell did she know that I was going to move in Japan!!!' "I didn't move here you butthead." Tori started to get you mad,"I'm on vacation." "Said the princesse of big mouth." you got her really mad."Get her!!" you run as fast as your legs can caring you.You tripped on a rock and you were ready for the beating,"Leave her alone!" a dude in black jumped in

How I made VanilleBECAUSE I GET THE SAME QUESTIONS OVER AND OVER AGAIN, if you ask me in the comment sections, I'll just direct you here.How I made Vanille5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also. For me, this costume was all about trial and error!! I spent tons of time researching and looking on forums on everything. Cosplay.com's Vanille thread has EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW on how to make Vanille; I and many other cosplayers have posted up our advice and tips there. I read through all 15+ pages of the thread, you can do it too. All it takes is a little bit of effort. XD (I'm not directing this at anyone specific, but one of my pet peeves are people who demand, not ask, that I tell them how I did something and expect me to hold their hand as I practically do everything for them. Doesn't that take the fun out of making your own costume? And not even saying thank you if I do give out a ton of help orz)

I feel incredibly lucky that on my birthday, I can finally reveal a long-awaited dream come true with all of you.
McCall's Patterns reached out to me last year to see if I would like to design some patterns for them. (Still reeling over this sentence, btw.) I had a meeting and lovely tour of their offices, and then got to work. My ideas were overflowing, but I knew exactly which patterns I wanted to design first...
We're proud to present "Yaya Han's Ultimate Bodysuit Pattern" as the first finished collaboration between McCall's Patterns and me.
It's a pattern we are sorely missing in the cosplay world - I know from having to alter and draft my own bodysuit patterns for many years. This patterns will make it easy for cosplayers (and everyone else) to tailor a bodysuit that will fit them like a glove, and use it as a base for thousands of costume ide

There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique
