Cosplay/Makeup/Wig Styling Help! :DSo, someone sent me a note not long ago, asking if I could make up a list of help, ideas and recommendations toward making a cosplay look good! ^^Cosplay/Makeup/Wig Styling Help! :D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I honestly don't think I'm the best cosplayer there is, or anywhere close to some of the best, but I'm very happy with what I can do with my cosplay, and proud of some of the looks I have created, especially the more recent ones!!~
I'll but down some of my own tips and the way that I like to do things in sections:
Makeup, Wig Styling, Extra Bits For Special Cosplays, Outfits and if you guys have any questions, let me know! ^^
First of all, use a primer to cover your face. This will decrease the chance of getting spots and will give you an over all, clean base to work on for your skin.
Then, use a concealer stick (I'd recommend a foundation stick from screenface) and cover any spots, red marks and the bags under your eyes.
Then use foundation (I'd recommend Mac) to cover your face and give you a clean, balanced base.
Before using eyel

Hands up if you like prawns??!!!! Definitely not I, not since my Mother once told me they hung around the sewers in the sea anyway. But prawns are popular globally, almost - and here are some great examples of how you can get very creative with the little poo dwelling crustaceans...
Will you ever eat them again?

Animethon!So it's about time that I put up an Animethon journal since it's in 2 weeks! Nova and I can't wait to go to Edmonton for a con, we get to visit our Alberta neighbours! It's also really nice to be going to a Canadian con (means I don't have to exchange money XD).Animethon!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Really stoked at getting to meet lots of people who we've been so close and yet so far away from for so long! We're there to meet people, first and foremost, so if you see us at the con please don't hesitate to come say hello and stick around for a chat, photos, I'LL EVEN DRAW YOU SOMETHING >8D doesn't matter. We love socializing at cons (in fact that's most of what we do at cons haha) so don't feel like you're being a bother ;D We're nice people, I promise and if you feel awkward just remember that I'm probably just as awkward if not more awkward than you. I'm kind of a shit show. So we can be awkward together :3

Life Update???Hey guys I just wanted to write a quick journal explaining my on and off absence from DeviantArt and talk a bit about what's going on in my life right now!Life Update???1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Ive been without a working computer for a bout 6 months which is why the uploads have been so slow and the kiriban video I made never got put up (I did make it though!!) This has also put a damper on getting CMVs done although I do have some roughly planned. This summer has been so crazy with lots of traveling and cons and moving into an apartment with some friends of mine I've been doing less new cosplays and more art because of time and school. I'm in my junior year of art school now and so thats where a lot of my creative focus has been. I'll still be creating new cosplays and doing photoshoots don't you worry! I'm just not doing 3 new complicated cosplays to each con is all XD I'm redoing some cosplays and making maybe 1 or 2 cosplays for cons now and most of them aren't too hard.
I have a lot of photos for you guys

I Am Not a Real Woman?I see a lot of obese women posting pictures of their bodies, and getting endless praise for being "brave" "confident" and "a REAL woman".I Am Not a Real Woman?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am a real woman, too. But when I post pictures of my skinny body, I get insulted and harassed.
I am a model. I go to photo shoots and get made-up, lit-up, and photo-shopped. Then I go home, and I have a real life, and real problems, and real feelings.
I love my body, but I do not promote my emaciated look as a beauty ideal. Yet, I get slammed continuously for glorifying an unhealthy standard. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of people die of obesity each year, but we continue to promote obesity as "normal" "beautiful" and "real".
I don't really care what you're into or whether or not I embody it. There's no reason to be so disrespectful to others about body image, ever. Everyone should love their body, and everyone should strive for optimum health.
That is all.

I won't even bother to go into what we did and the quotes we came up with, it was a crazy and amazing time, I wish it could last forever. We need to buy a TC house (meaning get rich somehow) and have a mepphycopter and play BESBAW.
Ichirakku is very slow right now- 1 because of the heat (it makes it very hard to cosplay) and 2 because we're extremely busy setting up a gallery for our photography!

Arcade Con 2013 ReviewWe arrived back from Arcade Con on Wednesday and things since then have been a little turbulent here at home :S However thankfully our trip to Ireland was nothing short of amazing which offsets all the crap we're dealing with right now XD Thank you to the Arcade Con staff and attendees for making this such an amazing con. We met so many wonderful people... I'm still flabbergasted at how well we were received at the con and how warm and loving the atmosphere at Arcade Con was!

The staff really amazed me at this con. They were attentive, helpful, kind, and always offering to get us drinks and just generally working hard to make everyone run smoothly. They worked tirelessly and it really showed in the calibre of the con.
All the people we met were so kind and easy to talk to. We'd meet someone once and after that we'd see them around and we'd wave and chat if there was time and before I knew it I was thousands of miles from home but feeling like I w

TO YOU ASPIRING ARTISTS...FROM JOE MADUREIRAHere's some of the most amazing and invaluable advice you'll most-likely ever get from one of my good colleagues and legends in comics/gaming, creator JOE MADUREIRA. It's what i've been preaching to you aspiring artists since i arrived on DA, but i think his POV says it perfectly:TO YOU ASPIRING ARTISTS...FROM JOE MADUREIRA3 years ago in Personal More Like This
*WARNING: SOME MATURE LANGUAGE*
"DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST?
Or a successful WORKING PROFESSIONAL?
Believe it or not there is a difference. I'm not usually a soapbox type guy, I don't like instructing people, and I think I'm a terrible teacher. But hey, it's Friday and I'm in a strange mood. So here goes:
I've noticed that a good number of my fans happen to be aspiring artists themselves. This is for all you guys. I get asked constantly: "Where should I go to school?" "What classes should I take?" "What should I study for anatomy?" "What pencils and paper do you use?" "Should I be working digitally now instead of traditionally?" "How do I fix my poses? Learn composition? Perspective?" "When
