When you guys come up to us at conventions and start shaking or crying and explaining, "how much we've done for you" with our weird videos and weird selves, don't you everrr feel like you are wasting our time and you should never ever feel the need to apologize to us for telling us your very personal stories or for crying, or anything! You are never wasting our time, and when you take a moment to talk to us about such personal things that happened in your life, we are honored & it reminds us that we do these silly things not for our own amusement, but for you as well. I say it all the time but you guys keep us going, and I mean it. When you tell us these things, I can't help but want to just take you over to a less crowded area and hug you and cry with you. I'm telling you all of this because I want you all to know that expressing yourself
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:
1. A detailed literary analysis and trope driven deconstruction of H
What doesn't kill you makes you strongerI just went back and read some of the horrible comments I've received from people in the past.What doesn't kill you makes you stronger3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I remember how hurtful it was and how much I wanted to just dissapear from it all. I felt helpless and hopeless.
The internet can be a terrible place.
When people aren't accountable for what they say they feel a certain sense of power. The ability to judge others without being judged ourselves is a position of immense dominance. It's exhilarating to exercise that dominance over another person.
But now, looking back, I realize that it doesn't bother me anymore. I don't even bother hiding, deleting or responding to those comments because it just doesn't bug me. I feel a resounding "eh",
I keep those comments up so that people can see the kind of behaviour that people reduce themselves to when they're behind a computer screen. Every "this is shit" or ""he" is just a dyke and a "she"" has meaning to me now. It means that I've overcome something that I never would have thought possible. I'm not hu

I met you today 7 years ago and it was love at first sight; married you on the same day 6 years ago and have never once regretted it because I'm still just as in love. If anything, I love you now more than I ever have before and that is a source of great comfort in my life.
You keep me stable and grounded and are my shelter in the worst of times. I need you in my life but more than that, I WANT you in my life because you make everything complete. You really are the sun and the moon in my sky, cliches be damned.
Thank you for tolerating my crazy, curing my sad and always being there when I need you the most. I look forward to growing old with you and having a million cat children and an unpredictable life full of adventure.
So, bravely into the future we go skipping and holding hands all the way.
Happy 6th anniversary.
Your adoring wife

So those of you who follow me on social media might already know that my DA has been suspended for 2 weeks and just came back online today. It's a long story involving a troll who has since been dealt with, so I'm not going to go into detail about it. I got shafted in the entire situation, but things are resolved now so I'm ready to just move on XD
And not onto the topic at hand, ALcon! :iconvandorwolf: and I will be returning as guests to Alcon 2013 and we can't wait to see familiar faces again and also can't wait to meet new people. Getting to meet and hangout with folks is always the highlight of our con, so please don't hesitate to come say hello, ask for a picture, have a chat, hangout etc. if you see us around! We're 100% there for YOU GUYS, and really there isn't anything I love more than meeting and hanging out with people at cons (especially people I don't get to see often!) so don't worry about intruding or being a bother because you are anything but Can't wait to

NOW! On to Banzaicon! This con re-cap is LONGGG OVERDUE! But April was just such a whirlwind month for us.
Banzaicon was even more amazing than it was last year, which was hard to do because last year was PRETTY DAMN AMAZING. This con has one of the best staff that I have encountered at cons. Everyone really truly cares about the quality of the con and the enjoyment of all of the attendees. It blows me away each year when I see their committment and philosophy around Banzaicon. And let's not forget the attendees!!! EVERYONE IS SO WONDERFUL AND SO WELCOMING!!! You guys all make this con as awesome as it is thank you so much for having us! <3

The con will be held July 5th-7th 2013 at the BallsBridge Hotel in Dublin, Ireland
We'll be holding panels (including some new panels for 2013 that we're currently working on, gotta keep it fresh!!), premiering a new episode of one of our series or a CMV and generally just hanging out at the con. I think I also told one person that we were going to slow dance into the moon SO WE'LL BE DOING THAT TOO. All for the sake of science.

But thanks to friends and getting our stuff together we managed to make it work! I can't wait to hang out with our con friends :3 and I also can't wait to meet all the people who have posted that they will be going to SC this year! So many new faces to meet, and so many familiar faces to catch up with 8D I'm looking forward to a nice, chill hang out con.

- Metrocon! Which was amazing. Another fantastic year where we met some fantastic people! Will we be back next year? Honestly, we cannot say. We're not sure we can continue to afford the flight costs, so it's up in the air right now.
- Abunaicon! Dutch people are crazy. Nuff said. <3
- Alcon! Another amazing weekend! We were kinda zoned out for some of it, due to the fact we were so close to getting our house... but still an amazingly fun event.
- HOUSE! Which we have. And despite the boiler problems, everything is now finally going smoothly thanks to you guys!
- JCon! Our first time at this event, and damn it was fun! Definitely worth doing, and hopefully we'll be back next year!
So... yeah. It's been kinda busy to say the least!

After AbunaiconWhat a weekend.After Abunaicon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kelly and I are finally back home after a very early flight back to London. I have to say, it was all worth it.
Abunaicon was truly fantastic! It was great meeting some of our followers from the Netherlands and pretty much everyone we met was just lovely!
It was a great test run for Gambit (my sclera contacts arrive tomorrow!!) and I've now decided to make a Human!Wheatley cosplay. Ha ha! It will be fun to be an idiotic character again.
Highlights of Abunaicon:
*Judging the Eurocosplay.
*Being chased by Batman.
*Creating world domination plans with the Joker and Harley while dressed as Loki.
*Invading panels and generally being mental.
*Killing Coulson over and over and over and OVER again!
*Squaring off to a certain Hawkeye everytime I saw her.
*ALL THE DESSERTS!!!
*Being told by four people that I look like Tom Hiddleston.
Twas an AMAZING weekend just so tiring. Phew! I really hope we can come back next year and share in all the fun. Now to plan for Alcon!

So uh, private post. I'm just gonna jump to the chase and I'm gonna write this just once.
As alot of you may have seen or heard Josefin and I are not together anymore. She found someone else so I broke up with her. That's the veryvery short version of it. It was mildly speaking a bad and complicated breakup. I wont give out any details because it is no longer important, I just want to say that I will continue cosplaying all of the characters that I cosplayed with her with other people. They did represent us in a way but after everything that happened they dont anymore. I still love those pairings and characters so I wont give them up. We are not parts of eachothers lives anymore in any way.
She is no longer a part of JarofClouds and that is something the whole group decided together and it was not just because she and I broke up. Alot of other stuff happened between her and some of the

I feel incredibly lucky that on my birthday, I can finally reveal a long-awaited dream come true with all of you.
McCall's Patterns reached out to me last year to see if I would like to design some patterns for them. (Still reeling over this sentence, btw.) I had a meeting and lovely tour of their offices, and then got to work. My ideas were overflowing, but I knew exactly which patterns I wanted to design first...
We're proud to present "Yaya Han's Ultimate Bodysuit Pattern" as the first finished collaboration between McCall's Patterns and me.
It's a pattern we are sorely missing in the cosplay world - I know from having to alter and draft my own bodysuit patterns for many years. This patterns will make it easy for cosplayers (and everyone else) to tailor a bodysuit that will fit them like a glove, and use it as a base for thousands of costume ide
