Revisiting Naruto cosplay + Road to Ninja Movie!So I've heard of this film for a long while, but never got to watch it for lack of a proper subbed copy/DVD release. (There was that Korean dubbed one that some people watched online, but Naruto has my favorite Japanese voice acting so I didn't want to watch it any other way!)Revisiting Naruto cosplay + Road to Ninja Movie!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sometime last month, some happy news reached our shores — Road to Ninja would be showing at our local cinemas!! I know it's been a while since its first release but I'm glad I waited before resorting to well, less legal ways of watching it! Hahah! Here is a stupid rap I wrote and slapped on a manga panel:
Would Killer Bee be proud of me? HAHAH
I had the honor of being invited to the special advanced screening at Director's Club before it hit the cinemas! Major thanks to Ica and Movie Punch for having us over!

Clip-on wig tip 8D ehe..Okay, I haven't updated my journal in quite some time, so I thought I'd do it now with a little wigstyling tip. *nervous*Clip-on wig tip 8D ehe..3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Uh so uh.. *still nervous* when shisukoisa and I've held wigstyling panels at conventions I've always brought up this that I'm about to bring up now. How to make a clip-on wig look 'real', or moreso. (This also applies to wigs with only one ponytail)
Here we go.
First of all the basic short wig, you guys know this step xD
Then take the part from the top of the wig to your ear and drag it back.
use a hairneedle to make it stay there*ehe*
PSA -- Wearing HijabI wanted to take a minute to discuss a very serious issue that escalated to a new level for my recently. For the past few months I've been dressing much more conservatively than I normally do and have been wearing a head scarf. I started doing it for several reasons but the main one was to gain a better understanding of the discrimination many Muslim and Orthodox Jewish women face by covering their hair and the severe spike in islamaphobia in this country. Getting odd looks I think is normal when you look slightly out of the norm and largely I don't have an issue with that. But I did notice something that no one should ever be this afraid of..I was afraid to cross streets. I was even afraid people would take their car onto the side walk to hit me. I know that sounds irrational but you do start to notice the way people in cars regard you and just how easy it would be for one to hit you and take off. Now, I've been hit by a car twice so I'm a little more weary than most but even moreso nPSA -- Wearing Hijab1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Before Cosplay Makeup: Basic Skincare!Before I write about cosplay makeup, I figured I should discuss some skincare basics. I feel it's important to know how to take care of your skin before you start putting gunk on it! This is really very basic so I think those of you with your own regimens already might be bored by it! But here it goes!Before Cosplay Makeup: Basic Skincare!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not an awesome guru wizard thing, but I'll just share some general concepts and products that work for me. It's different for everybody, but I hope this will be helpful! For your sreference, my skin type is combination: normal to dry with an oily nose. Hahah! Not my T-zone, just my nose!
Recently, my male friends had gotten very interested in makeup for cosplay and asked me for tips on how to go about it. (I think this was fueled by Kaname's visit to our country for Cosplay Mania '12, and they saw how beautiful he looks. ) I decided to ask them about their skincare regimen to figure out what products might work for their skin type.

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!1 year 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:

I know I'm normally a joking person and what not, but I was just say a few things here. Just to get it out my system.
I have known a lot of people here. And a great amount of you are going through tough times and sad stuff. It sucks, I know. It hurts hella bad too. And as your friend, I would try to cheer you guys up.
"You don't understand what I'm going through."
"You don't know sadness like this."
"You're too perfect to understand how I feel."
Yes. I get that a lot. Now guys. I know that I probably don't know how you feel. Maybe I'll never truly understand what you're feeling. I don't always have sadness like you guys. And maybe I never will.
But that doesn't mean I'm going to leave you alone about it...
If you watch me, or know me personally, I stick with you forever. You can't ever get rid of me. My job here is to make others happy. Whether it be through my art, or my roleplays or just me being odd. If you're feeling under the weather, and you're thinking of anyt

How much the digital age is screwing young artist.For serious you guys does it really matter if someone's art is traditional or digital?How much the digital age is screwing young artist.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been really hurting some artists on DA who draw traditionally (that goes for me too), who have been told their work is not good enough because it's not digital.
We all don't have fancy tablets. We all can't afford the best digital art programs. But we can make beautiful art, without all that. Pencil and paper is all we need.
Now everyone go and draw that way YOU want to. Traditional, Digital, or some third way.....

Stuff like this baffles me. Like wtf?
Why is it that hundreds of animes can have sexual connotations and what not with female character that are/look like they’re 10, but second someone ships a similar m/m couple it’s ‘disgusting’? The characters of High school of the Dead are all highschoolers (so a year or two older then Eren and Co.) yet they have tits and asses hanging out everywhere. Why does no one call the people who enjoy that show pedophiles? Hell, there’s even porn involving young girls and older men! But no one says shit about that.
Ten bucks this fucker enjoys watching that kind of stuff with young girls in it yet is judging others.
It’s an animated show and it doesn't affect your life so fuck off. Or at least stop being a pussy and hiding behind the Anon setting.

Vocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.Jin's Flower Wreath ProcessVocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.2 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!)

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
