Why it's Vanille x Hope for meAfter my last essay, I decided to springboard off my paragraph about Hope and Vanille and go into why I like them together so much. This is my opinion. If you think you might not like something here, there's a back button for a reason. But don't be afraid to read on, either...Why it's Vanille x Hope for me1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Let me start off by saying that I didn't like Hope all that much at first. People kept saying he was a whiny emo kid and, having not played the game yet, I believed 'em. Then I played the game and read other stuff and saw hey, he actually behaves like a fourteen-year-old kid. OH DEAR ME. It's not exactly common in the series for people to act their age, so this is probably why it and all the other characters threw so many people off. They all acted their age. Except maybe Fang, she was a little more mature. But I digress.
I've been following this couple for a long time. So long that I don't even remember where it started. It probably started with th

Ahri Cosplay Walk Through - League of LegendsHi guys!Ahri Cosplay Walk Through - League of Legends2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I thought it would be a good idea to go through and make a journal entry on how to make an Ahri cosplay. OR pretty much just how I did it
*** This is just a tutorial on her TOP. There will be another tutorial on her tails, hair, and shoes and skirt. ***
What you will need:
*3d model is GREAT. I loved having it, since I used her in game art that is! But keep in mind there are differences in the in game models and in the splash art! I use this one ---->
*About 2 yards of your choice of white and red fabrics. I used silk because I really liked the way they looked- it was a little harder to cut because it frays a little- but I like the way it turned out.
* Red and white thread.
* Sewing machine
* Red zipper
(1) You will start by constructing a pattern out of poster board. Allow yourself a few inches on the sides for cutting and for sewing. (You also have the option of making the chest a bit bigger if you feel like be

Ahri Cosplay - Sleeves TutorialHello again!Ahri Cosplay - Sleeves Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is the tutorial for the sleeves of her dress. It is debatable whether or not her sleeves are attached to her top or not. I personally made them separate because It would be even more constricting than it already is XD. I would have liked to made the top of my sleeves a little bigger and I may redo them- but that's for something else. :3
In my first initial post about Ahri's top I posted a picture of the patterns I made, the stencil on the left is the one I made for the sleeve. I know it looks big, but it should! You want to leave enough room at the top and the bottom of the sleeve so it will flair out.
--- As always, pics coordinating with numbers! <3 ---
What you will need:
* Red fabric (I used satin)
* Red thread
* A strip of your white fabric
* Your fabric paints
* Paint brushes and some water/ a paper towel or two
* Optional; Wire (used to shape the top of the sleeves)
First you will make your pattern, measure the top of your arm and stretch it out so that you
Ahri Cosplay - Tails TutorialHi again loves!Ahri Cosplay - Tails Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So sorry it's taken me so long to post on here for the next section on the Ahri cosplay. I have already done a tutorial on her sleeves, skirt and her top. I started her tails first and finished them last because well, they were rather frustrating, and I am in the process of reworking them. Once I completely finish my rework on her tails, I will post another how to!
As always, the pictures will be numbered ;3
What you will need:
*At the very minimum you will need 2 yards of white fake fur. I am lucky enough to have an enormous fabric place called Fabric Depot which has it's own section for fake furs! I got one that was long, straight, soft and beautiful! Fake fur can be pretty spendy, I got mine for 29.99 a yard (1)
*Firm Foam (I cut mine appropriately) (2)
*Stuffed animal stuffing
*Industrial Strength Velcro
*Some fabric or a small belt.
*Some hot glue and a hot glue gun
*Some (preferably) white velcro
First you will decide how large you want your t
Ahri cosplay- Skirt TutorialHi again guys!Ahri cosplay- Skirt Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here is the tutorial for the skirt. I started similalarily to how I did with the top- But first! Let's talk supplies.
You are gonna need:
*White fabric (I used some satin)
*Fabric paint- I use Jacquard brand - Gold an a red. (5)
*Paint brushes of all sizes- primarily smaller and thinner ones.
*White thread of course
----I will correspond the bottom pictures with the points below----
You can start by taking your measurements- using the pattern method from the shirt create a pattern. Make sure to make the pattern about 2 inches larger than you are to allow enough space for sewing/breathe room. It is also important that you make sure to make the top layer of the skirt larger at the bottom so that it sticks out in the nice points like she does in game
I made my skirt in 2 different pieces. The top half and the bottom half.
1) First I will talk about the bottom half of the skirt;
I first created two pieces to sew together in the front and the back (The seems wil
FFXIII-2 Lightning ~*The Chest Armor*~On today's update of Lightning progress, I would like to share with you a couple of DO's and DON'TS for this armor.FFXIII-2 Lightning ~*The Chest Armor*~3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would also like to direct your attention to :iconyuurisan-c-chan: who has started writing her own helpful tutorial on Lightning's Valkyrie Armor. Her work is really stunning and I highly recommend the tips and tricks she provides.
And for those of you wanting to cosplay Serah from FFXIII-2, yuurisan's twin :iconYuuri-K-sama: has also written a great tutorial. CHECK THESE OUT. YOU WON'T REGRET IT.
Anyway, yesterday I began work on the front chest piece for Lightning, and let me just say, it was a bit of a learning experience. I knew what I was getting into but I didn't know how to go about some things a certain way. It's kind of that thing... "Hey, I think this will work great this way." But it really doesn't go exactly how you envisioned it. This is one of the ways:
As you can see in the image above, I assumed that wiring would be best to make the ribbed cu
Due to Popular DemandI've gotten a lot of questions regarding the construction of my GLaDOS cosplay recently and rather than answer each of them individually, I figure that typing this up is faster.Due to Popular Demand3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For the halfmask:
I was heavily inspired by Volpin's Portal Gun tutorial, even though I wasn't making the gun. I tried to follow his process, since I knew that the finished mask had to have the same plastic-y glossy finish. However, Volpin is a crafting genius and used a lot of vague, but still very technical, mumbo-jumbo in his descriptions so I interpreted it as best I could.
Also, the foam carving and the gesso sanding is very messy and will leave dust everywhere. Don't do it indoors! I was stupid and pretty much did this entire project in my bedroom. Everything is still kinda dusty and I probably have cancer or something from breathing it in.
Step one was gathering the materials:
Medium and Fine Grit Sandpaper
Black Acrylic Paint
WIP - Ahri League of Legends Tutorial/TipsSorry for not updating for a long time.WIP - Ahri League of Legends Tutorial/Tips2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This journal is gonna talk about how I actually made my Ahri Costume. I am not pro so my method is gonna waste a lot of fabric like I did.
I used Miyuko's Version as a references because the official paper is a bit small. I believe you can easily get references now because lots of people cosplayer Ahri before.
Materialswill only stated out major materials that you will need to buy, instead of finding them lying around at home.
-Red Matt Satin or printed satin(this work best because of the floral effect, I am out of option SO I used a thick satin instead.
-White Fabric of your choice, feel confortable with it.
-Yellow Satin or printed satin (same reason)
-Bias tape ( if you're using satin then get a satin bias tape)
-Patterned Ribbon/Tape (silver)
-Knitted China Accessories/Red Tassels.
-Big Golden Bell
I start out with the easiest thing - skirt . I draft this free hand.
Just draft the shortes

FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weaponEdit: Many of you asked for a transformation vid. So, I made this video clip. Enjoy!FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weapon2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my former journal I asked if you would like for me to explain how my Starseeker weapon was made. Since there were quite some people that would like me to do so, I decided to make this FAQ journal. So, I hope I'l answer some questions you might have about this curious weapon and I hope I can explain it well enough for you all to understand.
Note that I made the weapon a couple of months ago and I don't remember everything very clear of the making of it. But, I'll do my best.
So, first things first: The Starseeker
Serah's weapon is quite the interesting one. This because it's a transformable one just like her sister's, Lightning. Nonetheless, it's a transformable one from bow to blade, which original form is none other than the cute moogle companion, Mog.
Of course, Final Fantasy is all about 'Fantasy', so making an exact workin

LR:FFXIII Demo Report (part 1)The Final Fantasy XIII series owes a lot of its success to the character Lightning, according to series producer Yoshinori Kitase.LR:FFXIII Demo Report (part 1)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Her distinctive look has brought about an opportunity for not only a closing chapter to her saga, but also a brand new game in a brand new world. With this new gameplay experience, both Yoshinori Kitase and Director Motomu Toriyama hope to satisfy fans and maybe newcomers alike.
Following the official reveal trailer this past December, Square Enix invited a select bunch of press to get an early look at the game proper. Not only was I treated to an unfinished version of the game – said to be the earliest build of a Final Fantasy ever shown publicly – I was able to get an understanding of what the developers are trying to aim for.
The presentation began with a look at the familiar Jump Festa trailer, although slightly longer with a few extended scenes. While there are a few extra glimpses of the city Luxerion, the most notable addition is the appe

Fragile life. Engouraging journal / featureSometimes, when I have enough time, I go through my message center to the "Birthdays" box, and because I watch like 2000 people I always have a few friends that are celebrating their birthdays this day. Lately, I wished to someone a happy day and fulfillment of their dreams, and a few days later I received the message from a family member that this young person is not alive anymore for some short time. I felt really awkward and sad at the same time, then I found out a last letter from this person and started to think, how fragile life is.Fragile life.

The possibilities of lay out there was endless, and Allison knew this. Her heart fluttered at the thought of the adventures she could have. Ones similar to those that were told by patrons of her bar.
Allison Marie Rosewood, my OC, has the ability to travel the omniverse through the use of an ancient relic she calls The Skeleton Key. At first her travel was limited to the megatropolis known as Parallexus, but as stories of wondrous places were told to her she could no longer contain the urge to go out and explore further into the omniverse.
For this contest, you will be drawing a place in the omnieverse that Allison has gone to. I am really leaving this contest open for people's imaginations to run wild. The location can be anywhere and she can be doing just about anything that would within reason of her doing it. She can be in a world
MTT species infoIMPORTANT UPDATE.MTT species info3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wow. This got out of hand really fast. All of a sudden I have a ton of people making a ton of MTT characters all at once, popping out one right after the other. I really did not want it to turn out this way, these rules were meant to try and cut down on the amount of new MTTs being made, but that didn't work out like I wanted it to at all. Worked quite the opposite. So I'm sorry to say this, but the MTTs are now a closed species until further notice. Only way to get one from now on are adoption contests, which I will be hosting more often. Everyone who has already gotten permission for however many MTTs they asked of me, can still make theirs. Going back on my word like that would be lame. Again, I'm sorry, but I don't want to just wait until the fad blows over. The MTT species will stay closed for a while, but I am not sure how long exactly. Maybe a few months, maybe forever.
And I want to stress this is not because of any one certain person, so anyone
