Con-Report: TRACON8 Tampere (Finland) + pics!Yay! A new con-report!Con-Report: TRACON8 Tampere (Finland) + pics!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time me and Elffi were cosplay guests for TRACON in Tampere (Finland).
We had the duties to be judges for the World Cosplay Summit (WCS) preliminary Finland and we hosted a panel about "Cosplay around the world".
I debuted a new costume: Perona from One Piece <3!
So let's start with Saturday :3!
The building of Tracon is really big and pretty ^^. Also they had a really nice outside area next to a smaller lake .
I was the most excited for the World Cosplay Summit preliminary! We already had a pre-judging early in the morning. We were happy to have 13 really great teams. It was specially interesting to asked how they did certain parts. Some showed really outstanding techniques. I was

Unrelated...thanks so much for all the congrats on my grad TwT I really wasn't expecting those ;A;
I've been at university since 2006 though so what you guys should actually be saying is "geez, finally!" and "about time!" =3= Regardless, I'M SO GLAD TO BE OUT OF THERE YAHHHHH (Technically though I'm still waiting for them to check my credits and approve my graduation application....)
So now, at the ripe old age of 24, I'm finally learning to drive \o/ (because I won't have a bus pass from school anymore, boohoo). I had to retake the knowledge test since I last took it 7 years ago and it's long expired. When the licensing
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!)
2011 Europe tripThis took forever but I'm finally getting down to blogging about it! I've been looking for someone to tour Europe with, but unfortunately schedules are hard to match and money doesn't come by easy. Been wanting to visit Europe for the longest time, and last year I thought, if I don't go now, I may never have the chance to go. So I made up my mind to recce on my own, and in two weeks I was off on a plane! I didn't plan to go overseas for my graduation trip, so I shall reflect and relive last year in place of that XD2011 Europe trip4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thoughts like "what the heck am I doing" did occur to me on the plane, but they were quickly taken over by the fear and excitement of exploring unknown lands 8D Since I was flying alone, next to me sat a Chinese lady who was working in Rome. We got to know each other a little better over the 13-hour flight, and she very kindly offered to drive me from the airport to my hostel ;v; I'm forever grateful towards her, as she made me feel safe and comfortable from the very start o
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:

Shit Cosplayers SayJust in time to write my last image journal entry before the day as a subscriber ends (LIKE TODAY)Shit Cosplayers Say4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kanasaiii and I had became fans of Shit Girls Say when it debuted, since then, it turned into this giant internet meme where people made countless videos that label 'Shit ______ Say'.
So as cosplayers, we decided to contribute one: Shit Cosplayers Say
We have more content but ran out of time, these were everything filmed in one day. Our gifted actress was very game on everything we asked her to, including looking ugly and changing her clothes for each scene.
Please leave a comment to share your cosplayer experiences over at the video. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did making!

WHAT TIME IS IT? AAAADVENTURE TIME COSPLAY ...TIMEAdventure Time cosplay at Fantasy Quest 2WHAT TIME IS IT? AAAADVENTURE TIME COSPLAY ...TIME3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A couple of weeks ago, we attended an event called Fantasy Quest 2. (The very first Fantasy Quest was when we cosplayed Harry Potter characters.)
It was a pretty special day for us because four years ago, we had our first shoot and bonding day with Ysabel SavingSunlight at the venue, Fernwood Gardens.
We've been really into Adventure Time, so many months ago we decided we'd do AT cosplay, and that Fantasy Quest would be a fun opportunity to do so. It feels weird how we had been looking forward to this event for ages, and now it's over!

This is an update to my last journal here:
So Toronto was okay.. Most of the time my fam was there, the hospital was doing NOTHING with my cousin..
It was a lot of waiting for him to get his tests done. Finally we got the news from his Angiogram (spelling? XD) and they found nothing too abnormal there, which means he didn't need immediate surgery like the doctors had thought he would.
Which for those of you just reading this journal and not the last, means he doesn't need spinal surgery for a tumor on his lower spinal cord, right now anyways..
He still needs an MRI and other tests.. But those are in 3 weeks. So they have to go back to Toronto then.
I am just SO glad it wasn't as bad as they docs here thought. Although thats one of the reasons I HATE doctors and h
The Pitfalls of Speed PaintingI've been meaning to write about this for a while now, but recently a video popped on up Ctrl+Paint about the same topic and it encouraged me to finally talk about it. It's a practice that's been misconstrued and misunderstood for a while now, so I wanted to help people get a proper understanding on the subject.The Pitfalls of Speed Painting4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Speed painting has been something of a fad for 4 or 5 years now, even back when I was first starting digital work. Like many artists out there, I thought, "Sweet, I can do really cool work, really fast!" And like many artists out there, in the back of my head I was probably thinking, "This is easier than learning the normal way!"
Well, here's the main problem in regards to speed painting. Any of those really cool, realistic and well done speed paintings you see are done by professionals who have been painting for years and years. These a
