Anime Revolution 2013 ReviewJust like the Animethon review this review is pretty late too XD and just as with all of my other reviews I have to cut out so many details and special mentions otherwise this would go on forever. Too amny amazing things and good times happened XDAnime Revolution 2013 Review1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anime Revolution was at the end of August and it was the first con that FDP has been together at in a long time. It was amazing not just to spend time with and run panels with the group but also to hang out with so many of our friends from Vancouver. We also got to see many people from Vancouver and abroad again and we got to meet many people from all over who came to AR this year for the first time!!! I can't thank everyone who attended our events/panels and came up to us to say hi and ask for photos enough. Thank you all so much for your support it was an absolute pleasure and honour to meet everyone we met this year and to get to see familiar faces again.
As with last year Anime Revolution was professionally run by staff who were bus
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! :D1 year 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
Ireland! Arcade Con 2013It seems like we've been working non-stop on cosplay stuff, but last weekend was AE where we essentially just spent the whole time hanging out with friends around the con and doing photo/video shoots. :iconvaldrein: and :iconweatherstone: are back in Canada now, and I couldn't be happier to have two close friends back in town!Ireland! Arcade Con 20131 year ago in Personal More Like This
In 2 days we'll be leaving for Dublin, Ireland for Arcade Con, and i couldn't be more excited! I've always wanted to go to Ireland, and getting to meet peeps from there whom we wouldn't get to meet otherwise is an absolute blessing. I cannot wait for all the fun, shindigs and bonding that's gonna happen this weekend. I can feel it in my BONES!!!! >8D
If you're going to Arcade Con, we will definitely see you there! Our schedule is below so you'll know where we'll be and at what time, also what we're wearing. I hope that you can come to our panels! We have our wig panel which is always a popular one as well as the Cosplay Hate one that focuses on dealing with co
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! Absolutely incredible con experience :3Arcade Con 2013 Review1 year ago in Personal More Like This
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
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!1 year 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

So here goes. This is The Picture Book Project! We plan on taking these months to compile a book of pictures of you Rangers with birthday cards for Vic and send the huge old book to him for his birthday!!
The Book will have a few Rangers per page, with a little note from their Rangers about 300 words in length, the picture itself will be a picture of one of you guys/or a whole group of you guys if you have Ranger friends, holding a big Birthday Card in front for Vic that says “Happy Birthday Vic!” which you guys will custom make.
The great thing about this is that Vic gets to see all of you guys as well as your card, even though many of you live in different countries and places all over the globe. As long as you have a camera, you guys can participate in this. It’s our goal to get as many o

After an internship they offered me a job so I've been working as Development assistant at a Canadian high-end cycling and triathlon clothing company,

Draw Me!?Hey Everybody!!Draw Me!?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So I think it's about time I made this post.
A lot of you have asked this question: Can I draw you?
And to that I say YESSSS (as long as it's not vulgar or porn)
You are allowed to:
draw, paint, sketch or use my poses as inspiration no problem,
But please let me know when you do and please credit me as the model (link to my DA page would be nice!)
You are not allowed to do (WHATSOEVER):
any photo manipulation, retouching or use my image on a product (specially if you benefit money-wise from it)
All drawings of me will go into my favorites and from time to time I will be featuring the art in my journals
To all those who have already drawn me, thank you very much
Makes me smile everytime and I'm always impressed by your work and honored to have inspired you.
Here are the art works of me that I have found so far!
If I missed any of you let me know!

Action-Adventure Storyboard Online Workshop
FEB 7th, 2015 ~ MAR 28th, 2015
Sat 10AM - 12PM (PT) @ FUZE Web Meeting
In the past 8 years of storyboarding in the entertainment industry, working on action-adventure shows, like The Legend of Korra, TMNT, and Ben10, has been the most unique and thrilling experience of my career. I’ve learned and gained so much and they satisfied my artistic craving. I heart Action-Adventure animation genre!
I'm hosting an 8-week storyboard online workshop where I'll share basic principles and fundamentals of cinematic storyboarding and demonstrate how to apply them into an actual storyboard execution. From story beat breakdown to composition to laying out camera lenses to character acting and more, from basic technical skills to the creative process, I will share the important key knowledge of cinematic storyboarding. And I’ll demonstrate to you, step-by-step, how I storyboard.

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???3 months 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?1 year 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.

SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?Every single cosplayer in the world has one painful problem that we can all relate to: we're always broke. Always.SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fabric, thread, machines, paints, wood, tools, thermoplastics, LEDs, mould castings, brushes, dyes, wigs, make-up, contacts, boots, prosthetics, convention tickets, travel expenses, luggage, skin care, gym... the list goes on and on. Every single cent we earn, we constantly throw it all back into making our beloved costumes and feeling good for a few hours while stressing for months prior-hand. Non-cosplayers may not get it, but we do. For us, it's not a sacrifice. The chance to hone our creative spirit and create something from nothing is a rewarding life experience. Some think that the cost of an outfit is more valuable compared to medication and psychological sessions.
But like it not, we've all gotta come to a conclusion that the hobby must come to an end for us one day, and to have some money saved up for your next step in life is a greater advantage than having nothi

Both parents are Filipino. I was born in the Philippines
but Raised in Australia.
Are there any specific qualifications needed to get into the industry?
I'm sure you can find this answer better from other sources, but for me I figure specific qualifications needed to get into this industry would be to
