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:

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

Why I crossplayIt's the male to female crossplays that usually get stranger looks from the crowd. I understand why and I'm actually fine with it.Why I crossplay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked quite a lot in my years of cosplaying why I like to dress up as a girl at times. I was never able to give a definite answer back then. I suppose it was because I wasn't aware of why I did such a thing.
One reason would be that sometimes, I really just like the character's design. It's a hobby of mine to create things, and being able to materialize something I love makes me happy.
However now I believe I found the core reason of why I do it. Lately I've been delving deeper into doing more complicated costumes such as Capt. Jack Sparrow. In doing those, I realised that it's all about the transformation. Being a costume enthusiast ever since I was little, I've always found a certain joy in being able to turn myself into all sorts of characters. This carried over into my adulthood and I wanted to challenge myself even more.
There's so much prepa

I’m certain there are people who dislike me. Some I come to know through whisperings because I have eyes everyyyyywheeeeere.
However, I don’t feel the need to acknowledge them or do anything about it unless they are causing any real harm, especially to people I care about.
There is a popular quote that I like referencing for this topic, which gets the message across in a charming way:
“You can be a juicy, ripe peach and there’s still going to be someone who doesn’t like peaches, so you can either submit to someone’s criticism of you, or you can get on with the business of being your own amazing self who attracts other like-minded people that appreciat

I'm going to have to change the rules a bit. I'm going to add a deadline: 10th September. Let's try get 5000 watchers before this deadline! If not unfortunately I will have to cancel this raffle. The point of creating this raffle is to give back to watchers while also initiating a self-promo to gain new watchers, and right now progress seems to be going a bit slow to the point I nearly forgot about it. 2 weeks seems fair
How to make your very own Helix Fossil PillowThese are INSTRUCTIONS on how to make a Helix Fossil Pillow like the one below. It is not a tutorial and I do not have pictures of the process because I didn't think of it when I was making it, and I'm not going to make another. You will need some previous knowledge of sewing to follow these instructions. I am absolutely not going to teach people to sew - there are lots of resources on the internet if that's what you want. I might add a doodled example pattern later, but that's pretty much all the help you'll get!How to make your very own Helix Fossil Pillow1 year ago in Personal More Like This

As always~ English is not my native language so you might come across mistakes. My apologies! If anything is unclear feel free to ask me in the comments.
I'm just showing you what works for me and what's my personal liking. I'm focusing on eye make-up and additional tips. If you think this way of doing a boys cosplay make-up is is using way too much make-up that's totally fine. Everyone has his/her own preferences and this tutorial is just a hint who it can be done.
The shape of eyes differ a lot from one to another, so if you want to try it the way I do my make-up you might have to adjust it to your own eyes. Maybe you have already run into this problem before while seeing a well done eye make-up in a tutorial or worn by an asian cosplayer. Furthermore be aware of the fact that the shape of your eyebrows, wearing c

Are you the Main Character of your own Life?Thats a funny question to ask actually, "Are you the main character of your own life?" I can't really imagine anyone saying someone else is the main character in their own life, like 'Yeah my friend Bob, he is the main character, I am just a supporting role in his epic tale, pretty much if he dies I would also have to take my own life because his story has finished'. No. Im sure everyone consider themselves as the main character of their own lives, it's my story, my life, etc etc. I guess the real question is, how important is your story?Are you the Main Character of your own Life?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Eversince I was a small ugly child, I have considered myself to be the STAR of my own movie. "The Life of Ry" is the title of the film, without sounding too egotentacles, it just mean that I felt I was destined to do great things, this might have something to do with how I was brought up, I was very optimistic, I was quite spoiled even, I was always happy and laughing, it may have something to do with me being an only child and the fact that I
