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!)

Not everyone's Teiko uniforms are ready just yet, but we wanted to get a feel of things for the proper shoot so we did this for practice. It gave us a chance to try out our wigs and makeup and junk to see what we need to improve on for our actual cosplays.

So here are pictures from our day out last Sunday! Some are from my phone, others are from Facebook friends (Thanks, Jannibee and Benelyn!) and people who have sent me snapshots over Twitter!
Let's start with a group shot! Our theme was Sasuke and his teachers (and his flirt of an alternate universe self from Road to Ninja)

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:

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!2 years 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!

Cosplay Photoshoot EtiquetteMy good friend hikaraseru has written a very good guide on how a standard cosplay photoshoot should be conducted in a conducive manner. I got her permission to post the entire article up, so hope you guys like what she is presenting to us.Cosplay Photoshoot Etiquette3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Want to plan a cosplay shoot, but somehow things just don't turn out right? Maybe the photos were not how you visualised them, or that the photographer seemed to be extra grumpy, or you just don't know what's going on? Read on for how to get the best out of your cosplay shoot:
The 4 Ps:
Having a plan is essential and should take up the most time overall in your shoot. Speak to the photographers closely, because they will be the ones producing the photos that will be the end result; make sure they are aware of the concept and background of the series you're shooting. Some photographers will want to do their own research prior to the shoot (reading the manga/watching the anime/looking up reference photos) - so make sur

looking back to about a year ago i had doodled a very rough sketch in my sketch book of a girl walking an octopus. and when i say rough i mean rough. the sketch itself was nothing more than a study of contrasting silhouettes. i was drawn to the play between a very rigid character and a squiggly one.
i had forgotten about that sketch until i heard about a steampunk t-shirt design for www.welovefine.com. i thought that this design might have a chance so i went ahead and finished it off. well it got alot of attention and i am happy to say that it won the competition. the shirt started to sell

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!

Sammy the Rubber Genie's Darkest Wishes Granted!*POOF!*Sammy the Rubber Genie's Darkest Wishes Granted!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A Mysterious cloud of bright red smoke appears before your eyes as that strange plastic lamp you touched has suddenly sprung into life. Out of the smoke, you can make out a beautiful busty woman wearing a long flowing red rubber dress and fiery red hair cascading down her sides.
"Greetings" she announces, "My name is Sammy, I am a rubber genie, imprisoned several weeks ago by a malevolent force. I will grant you any wish your heart desires, whatever you want shall be yours."
Sammy sits on her cloud, squeaking slightly as her rubberized thighs press together, staring down at you, awaiting the next words to come from your mouth. Before you can say anything, she interrupts "I must warn you, any wish you make is permanent, and I cannot always guarantee that the dark magic I am infused with will provide you exactly what you want. My goal is to satisfy 1001 wishes to this community, you must not be too literal in your wish as my magic only works through interpretation, and you shall
Introducing you COPYIntroducing you COPY, Dropbox's direct competitor.Introducing you COPY2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's technically the same as Dropbox, but offers much more space at an initial 15gb of cloud space FREE.
So click this https://copy.com?r=veqtNG and it'll take you through my referral to the page.
Why through my referral?
Because when you sign up you get 15GB cloud space free.
But through a referrer's link, once you verify your email and then download & install either the Copy app or program, like dropbox, we both get additional 5GB on top of that.
Now, that's fun and most important more space for free!
Then after that you can introduce it to all your friends for similar results and you can rack up tons of 5GB per referral.
In case you missed the link, click this https://copy.com?r=veqtNG
Just to push up and let more people know about this!
By the way, I have quite a number of users who registered BUT have not install the app/program on their phone or computer, that means it's not a full process, and you won't get t
Journal-enchantmentsSo, you want to know how to ENCHANT your journal?Journal-enchantments9 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, here are a collection of codes and tips you can use in your journal, to make it look as pretty as many other journals around deviantART.
How to add images to your journal
< img src="source URL" alt="Image Description" />
remember to remove the spaces in the code when you're using it
The source URL is the URL of the picture you want to include, and the image description will be shown if the image, for some reason, cannot be loaded. Please also don't forget the trailing />. If you forget it, problems like your text not being properly aligned might occur.
Images you wish to place in your journal must be hosted offsite, either on your own webspace, or utilizing one of the image hosting services like Photobucket.com.
If you want to add thumbs from deviantArt, you use the code : thumb#### : to your journal.
You have to replace the #### with the numbers from the deviation URL.

Gemstones for cosplay!
I am experimenting with gemstone making lately, because I will need them for my new cosplay project.
I used resin and glass paint for the first experiments, because I didn't have resin dye at the moment.
Well, let's say that glass paint worked for the first try, however it was not perfect. Sometimes colors were fading, or changing. But I think this fact is acceptable, glass paint is not for coloring resin after all.
Don't forget protection while working with resin!
The fumes are not good for your lungs (and skin) :<
I think my results are not bad for the first try
However, I will stop using glass paint, and will buy the resin dye, to make sure the colors turn out the way I want them.
I am trying to refine my technics, and maybe - if there is some interest - I am gonna accept orders for g
