COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!Hi guys!! Thank you as always to all watchers and everyone who faves and comments - I'm so sorry I don't have much time these days to reply to everything, but I definitely do read and appreciate them all!COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!
I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^ That said, hope you enjoy! *chu*
Any questions please feel free to ask!
On Caius BalladI've been thinking about this subject for a while - how to word it, how long it should be, how many reasons I can come up with - and finally decided to just take the plunge and find out what I can cough up. Life's gotten better, much less stressful, and I'm able to dream again about the things I want to do in life now that some more immediate crises have been taken care of. So, here I am, wasting a little time writing this up, not trying to change any minds or turn any worlds upside down (but if I do, hey, that's cool too) and relax a little before I go off to do some actual work.On Caius Ballad6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Caius is different. Completely different. A lot of people say he's a purple Sephiroth, or that he's just like Kefka, or Kuja, or whatever. I disagree. He's unique in my eyes, unique within at least the majority of the FF games that I have seen, played, or read about. Vanille used to be my favorite character from the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, but come Lightning Returns, Caius has become my
LR: Thoughts on Caius x LightNow updated with new LR information. There are unmarked spoilers below. This was inspired by other, similar postings on Tumblr and such. This is also me trying to get my thoughts in order, and is mostly to try and show where I come from with this pairing, not so much "evidence" for it. It's to show where I kind of get the impression that, hey, this could actually work. and I'm bored and have no tumblr yet. Let's begin!LR: Thoughts on Caius x Light9 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. Design: well, obviously. They were very likely designed to parallel each other, and darnit if they don't look pretty good together as a result. Let's face it, they look good together. Dark and light colors work very well when done right, and you don't get much more obvious than pink and purple, light and dark colors, male and female, icy determination and fiery passion.
think of the beautiful family they would make, seriously
2. I don't think Lightning holds hard fee

LR: Caius in English vs. JapaneseI pretty much had a meltdown when I first saw the differences between the two versions of the game. I'd watched the Japanese version first, you see, and read tensai-shoujo's translations. It took me a while to get used to Caius's Japanese voice, but once I got past that (because I love Sakamoto as Lightning anyway), I realized later that he gave a whole other feeling than Mr. O'Brien, whom I saw three months later via SplitPlaythru's "story-focused" walkthrough. The difference was startling and immediate. Now that I've calmed down a lot, the differences aren't as striking, but they still exist. Now, it isn't necessarily the translation itself that's vastly different (although Yeul and Noel had their dialogue badly butchered in places, while Lightning also had something terrible happen to her), but the "feel" of it. Certain animations are different, words are added, and tone of voice has changed.LR: Caius in English vs. Japanese7 months ago in Personal More Like This

Shortbread - sort of like marmite, you either hate it or love it. I have to be in the mood for it - but it is quite lovely. Generally, it originates from Scotland. Walkers Shortbread is actually Scotlands largest food exporter! Shortbread is fairly simple to make and aside from burning it, not much can go wrong. So if you've not tried making it before (or eating it) start now!

But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.

My fabric! It needs to be ironed, haha. The blue is silk dupioni that I was lucky to find pretty cheap and the white is a shinier poly shantung from JoAnns. I liked them because I wanted some texture. I got this fabric a long time ago, but I've been procrastinating on the sari because making the trim is kinda a pain. Must work!

Tales of Games Day 2014SUPER LONG AND IMAGE-FILLED JOURNAL HERE. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. *takes a deep breath*Tales of Games Day 20148 months ago in Personal More Like This
Last Saturday, a group of Tales fans gathered in a small function room for the Tales of Games Day event. It was the second time I held this event; the first was at the end of year 2010, about three years ago. And just like before, it was so much fun. \o/
Woke up early in the morning to finish packing and prepare some light finger-foods. I made egg sandwiches and cooked Japanese seaweed chicken, and then my kind father gave me a lift down to sakura-rikami's place. Unfortunately, I got violently carsick on the way there and Sakami kind of overslept, so we spent about half an hour sitting quietly in her house until we both felt better. We rushed to buy drinks, and had to wait in a pretty long queue, then went straight to the function room. But the security guard in charge was on a patrol, and we had to wait for a while before he came back to open it oTL

Bootleg Plush DiscussionLet's talk about bootlegs. What are your opinions on them? Do you support them? Hate them? Why?Bootleg Plush Discussion5 months ago in Personal Journal More Like This
I feel as if we've got a double edged sword here. It's hard to deny the popularity of the bootlegs. Most are more show accurate than anything official on the market right now. People who cant afford custom plushes can afford the bootlegs. I can see the appeal in purchasing one. Most articles and discussions I've seen have offered nothing but praise for them.
I'm not writing this to tell anyone that they should not buy a bootleg. Each individual has the right to choose for him/herself whether to buy one or not. But I do want to encourage people to think about what they may be supporting when they buy from the bootleg market.
It's no big secret that some bootlegs are complete ripoffs of individual plush artist's designs.
What bothers me the most is the blatant and intentional ripoff of an artist's design. These

You can also purchase a subscription through the official site. The amount 626.88 was in their currency (ARS) and I believe that my bank had trouble converting USD over to the currency they use, so that's why my transactions were declined. If anyone else has that problem you can purchase it through Colman and Company!

So you want to digitizeIn this tutorial I'm going to attempt to explain how to autodigitize images into embroidery files. There are many different software programs out there. Here is a link to some free software called Stitch Era: http://www.imprimeo.net/howget.htmSo you want to digitize2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this tutorial I'll be showing you how to digitize using PE Design Lite!
This software is best used in conjunction with an image editing program like Adobe Photoshop. I've found that PE Design Lite is quite finicky with colors so you need a high quality vector image of the design you want to digitize.
So the first thing you need to do is find or create your design. Once you have a good quality image open your software.
Note: PE Design Lite has only the most basic of functions. For more embroidery options you'll need to buy/download more advanced digitizing programs.
Step 1: Open software
Step 2: Import your image
This is the file I want to digitize:
Step 3: Click the autodigitize button and the color grid will pop up.

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:
