I am about to spend the next 6 hours or so sewing and painting to finish up costumes and then packing for an adventure. I will soon after leave for the trip and it's going to take a while to get to where I'm going to it'd be great if you leave comments to keep me company on the way there!

Team Sasuke at Ozine Fest Day 3
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)

There's a bunch of challenges run by yours truly over on the small but growing, honest but lovely forum permanoobs. Everyone is welcome to join and learn together! Go here! http://forums.permanoobs.org/viewforum.php?f=5
Most importantly though, check out all the awesome sketchbooks O___O http://forums.permanoobs.org/viewforum.php?f=3
Some of you might remember the old days on conceptart.org when everyone would post all the things they drew every day and kick each other's butt and give critique and get motivated over seeing how much everyone around you would be improving. For the last years, there hasn't really been a place to get that kind of motivation any more.
I made a small forum to rekindle that kind of helpful atmosphere. It's a really small community, just for posting practice work and getting critique from others. A bunch of great people are already there posting their daily stuff and kicking each other's butt. Obviously I'm there too, updat
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 trip3 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:

I'm still a bit overwhelmed by the responses to my previous journal entry, but I will do my best to make proper replies to some of you soon. But to everyone Thank you all for constantly giving me reasons to be grateful.
I've got a bit of free time today before another Christmas party so I thought I'd post a holiday journal with miscellaneous moments from the past month or so. Thank you so much to Miss-It-Girl for extending my subscription so I can keep sharing these photos with you guys!
The holiday decor at home was a joy to look at and photograph.
I enjoyed the added details of these swirly twigs that make me think of Tim Burton landscapes.
After all these years, the sight of sparkling lights and shiny Christmas ornaments and even the smell of tinsel and synthetic trees gets me in the mood fo

WTF DISNEY? WHY DID YOU MAKE ALL THE MARS PEOPLE WHITE?! HAVE YOU LEARNED NOTHING FROM AVATAR?
AVATAR'S NATIVES WERE BLUE, NEARLY NAKED AND NOBODY QUESTIONED THAT.
RED PEOPLE OF MARS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE RED, FIT AND WEARING ONLY JEWELRY!
DID YOU HAVE TO SLAP CLOTHES ON EVERYONE? THIS IS BLASPHEMY OF JOHN CARTER! BLASPHEMY I SAY!
THIS IS HOW IT'S SUPPOSED ACCURATELY ACCORDING TO THE BOOK:
DISNEY? WHY U PICK WHITEST ACTRESS POSSIBLE FOR A MARS PRINCESS?
WHY U IGNORE THAT RED PEOPLE OF MARS ARE MEANT TO BE PHYSICALLY AND VISUALLY DIFFERENT FROM WHITE PEOPLE?

Style, style, STYLE, oh, THE styleWhat do you think about it? In terms of drawing. Is it important to have one of your own? Is it necessary to constantly seek it?Style, style, STYLE, oh, THE style3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've seen people troubled by not having constant style, people thinking their style is not original enough, people making a bold line between their two styles, people trying to get rid of one style...
My humble opinion on this is that you should stop wasting your energy on torturing yourself and just draw. Draw whatever you feel like.
Unless you're being paid for certain style but that's not what I want to talk about now.
What I want to talk about are all those personal pictures you do for self-improvement or supposedly for fun. "Supposedly" because if your main purpose is "fun" I don't get why you should worry yourself with "omg is this style all right what will my watchers say?"
Well, your watchers will get pretty bored if all in your gallery look the same. And also, there's not much space for improvement. Talking from my own experience, I was totally charm

As always~ English is not my native language so you might come across mistakes. My apologies! If anything is unclear feel free to ask me in the comments.
I'm just showing you what works for me and what's my personal liking. I'm focusing on eye make-up and additional tips. If you think this way of doing a boys cosplay make-up is is using way too much make-up that's totally fine. Everyone has his/her own preferences and this tutorial is just a hint who it can be done.
The shape of eyes differ a lot from one to another, so if you want to try it the way I do my make-up you might have to adjust it to your own eyes. Maybe you have already run into this problem before while seeing a well done eye make-up in a tutorial or worn by an asian cosplayer. Furthermore be aware of the fact that the shape of your eyebrows, wearing c

Anime/MangaWhen was in school and part of uni was an anime fan, not crazy fan, but i watched it, well read it, since i was a manga girl than an anime girl (how great was hana yori dango or fruits basket right???) XD. back then i thought i would never stop watching it. but now i have. it happened naturaly as i found myself getting bored with the stories, sexualization of the very young female characters, and realizing the drawings did not satisfy me anymore (dont get me wrong, i think manga drawing requires skill and many times it can be beautiful, like Clamp's work, it just didnt fullfill me anymore, since i now root for more, yet not entirely, real anatomy and features. XD). since i stopped reading manga there are some i had no chance of finishing, like Bleach, Vampire Knight, Parfait Tic or Ouran koukou and Death Note... i do wonder if they are finished or still running Xd anyway the thing is, even though anime is not a part of my life anymore (i dont consider Korra or Adventure TimeAnime/Manga3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Good thing I made it in time for another image-intensive blog post.
So I went to Gardens again 2 weeks ago! I have been really busy and suffering from emotional roller coasters, so it took me some time to finally get down to sorting out pictures and blogging abt it. This time, we finally managed to enter the Domes! Since they are somewhat like huge greenhouses in which temperature is strictly regulated within, we got to see many plants that usually cannot survive in Singapore weather. Being in them feels like I've taken a short trip out of Singapore, because the temperature and sights inside are so different!
Glad that I queued for the year-pass; I hope to revisit the domes many more times to come

But that's quite all right. I'm not at all externally focused and I know that what others think (especially on the internet, on social networking sites) have absolutely no effect on what I choose to do or how I choose to do it. So you may ask, "why are you even on here?", and that is a good question. The reason I post what I do is a clear signal to the "universe" (for the lack of a better term) that this is what I have chosen to do. It's almost irrelevant what my viewers think of what I am doing because I'm not doing it for them. But that makes me sound unfriendly.. If you like it, good. If you don't like it, good. If you get rude or obnoxious or hypocritical, well that's annoying a little bit
So during this last 12 to 15 months I've been posting nude photos and my views have gone from 7000 to 110000. T

As you might know wigs are made out of plastic fibers. Plastic is a heat bendable material, so this is the essence of the both methods I will show you. Styling your wig with heat will also work for curling it, making spikes and so on. Please be careful whenev
