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

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

I'm back from Madrid in Spain and have some photos and stories to share with you. Watch only the photos or read my crap as well haha XDDD it's all up to you <3.
First of all, it was CRAZILY COLD!!! OMG x.x....it was like 5°C, but the crazily ICY wind made it ways colder.
The day we arrived, we had a really lovely dinner together with our friends from WCS Team Spain 2012 (<3!!), KamuiCosplay and her husband and met some new Spanish friends <3. Thanks a lot to Alberto to organize this dinner *hugs*.

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

How I made VanilleBECAUSE I GET THE SAME QUESTIONS OVER AND OVER AGAIN, if you ask me in the comment sections, I'll just direct you here.How I made Vanille5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also. For me, this costume was all about trial and error!! I spent tons of time researching and looking on forums on everything. Cosplay.com's Vanille thread has EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW on how to make Vanille; I and many other cosplayers have posted up our advice and tips there. I read through all 15+ pages of the thread, you can do it too. All it takes is a little bit of effort. XD (I'm not directing this at anyone specific, but one of my pet peeves are people who demand, not ask, that I tell them how I did something and expect me to hold their hand as I practically do everything for them. Doesn't that take the fun out of making your own costume? And not even saying thank you if I do give out a ton of help orz)

oh I am very late with this report. This time I wanna show you some photos from my travel to Portugal.
I got invited as cosplay guest for IBERANIME in Porto :3!
On Saturday I had a panel about "Cosplay Performances". Thanks to everybody who came to watch it :3!
Directly after the panel, I was surprised how many people came over to me to talk to me ;3! People in Portugal are very kind, social and friendly! I had a bunch of new friends who helped me during all the convention days ! Some helped me with carrying my stuff, some helped me to get food and drinks....I was really amazed how friendly everybody was!
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

I don't care if Yana toboso is a yaoi artists, I don't care if she like cielSebby, and I don't care if there is fanservice

Stop following the anime!!!! Follow the manga!!!.
Now I am not saying u can't like that pairing, you can if u want but stop shoving it in people's facese mainly to the people who hate it. Not all but A lot of sebbyciel fans go WAAAAAAY to overboard! I like Yaoi (duh my name says it all) but I don't force it down peoples mouths!
Also stop basing on the nun and beast just because Sebastian did them. Stop going "oh kill her! She is in the way of sebbyciel!" OK first of all..no they are not!!! Also here is the number one thing you guys should know about Seba

Two hours and thirty minutes left and the contest if over, start wrapping the artwork up and get it in before midnight pacific coast time tonight. JULY 18TH. It might take me a week to pick the winners out there has been some amazing entries.
I warn you do not send plagiarism stuff and try to pass it off as your own or I will try to get you banned. If you make money off of your stolen artwork I will contact the artist and they will deal with you. Specially if it's a gaming company and the previous owner is someone I know. I advised all of you not to use game art. When I said I game and I'm an avid fantasy collector I was not lieing. Also I haven't played every game out their like Skyrim (I know shun the none believer) so again do not enter art that looks like you copied it from in-game content are you will be disqualified. If I don't know it some fan might and point it out.
