JohnSu goes to AX 2013Hey guys, sorry I took so long! This year I'm going to try something a little different and not Flash-dependent. I wasn't really sure how much I was gaining by making the pages squiggly and separated by animated transitions, so without further adieu, here's my report on this year's Anime Expo, now with alt-text! (hover mouse on image for commentary)JohnSu goes to AX 20137 months ago in Personal More Like This
My biggest regret this year was being too busy and not getting around the artist alley more and visiting people and panels. Thanks to everyone who visited, and sorry to everyone who I didn't visit (or visited only very briefly)! I feel really rude in retrospect. I also feel like I didn't really get to see much of what AX had to offer this year by confining myself to my table for most of it.
Next year I hope to have some sort of book-type product at my table, but knowing myself, I will probably either give up or miss deadlines again and you'll see a repeat of the first two images in the report.
MAN, I sure got tired of drawing myself.

I was very happy to visit AKUMAKON in Galway (Ireland) in January. Together with Elffi I went to Ireland for my first time ^.^~
I brought two costumes to the con: ALTER SABER and FRANZISKA VON KARMA ....
Let's begin with Saturday !
Saturday was a really nice day. I wore my Franziska von Karma together with Elffi as Godot.
We had a little booth were we could sell our prints. We were really surprised how open and kind the Irish people were. We could find new friends very fast and had fun to talk with everybody at the booth for a long time .

We celebrate Christmas quite traditional and that also means that I will be spherical like a hedgehog (only without the spines).

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*.
First convention day! I wore my new Archbishop costume from Ragnarok Online together with Elffi as Shura
(I'm still not confident with my costume ;O;, but I had much fun wearing it ^^).
We went to a photoshooting with our sweet photographer Taichia (https://www.facebook.com/TaichiaPhotography?fref=ts) who tried her best to take some pretty shots during a very gray and windy day >___

sry for being so late with updating you with my latest BIG project.
I'm working on this costume since January and finally I see the end of the long tunnel coming XD.
I wanna show you my now finished Saber Gift Figure armor!
If you don't know that version, you can see the reference here ---> http://www.ncsx.com/2009/012609/fate_stay_saber_gift.htm
If you like what you'll see please visit my facebook artist page as well ;D. There are always ALL progress photos form the stuff I am working on ^.^ ->>> http://facebook.com/calssara.cosplay
well let's start with the raw armor parts, completely unpainted.
I used WOBLAS FINEST ART as my material. It's a thermoplastic material with a mix out of plastic and wood. It's close to Wonderflex, but thicker, more durable and it's easier to make round shapes l shoulders, knees and chest plates. You can also melt the material together and use it as thermoplastic modeling clay!
This is my VERY first armor and even a bloody begin
WARNING for all those cosplayer's, wigs off ebayHi there.WARNING for all those cosplayer's, wigs off ebay4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I recently had my first ever bad experience with buying my wigs off ebay and I thought I would share so you too know to steer clear of this seller.
I had bought this wig: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Future-city-NO-6-Shion-White-Short-Anime-Cosplay-Wig-Heat-Resistant-/161115281010?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Wigs_Extensions&hash=item2583381672
In the picture it looks like it flips out right? When I received it, it was dead flat, extremely coarse and would not hold light styling. It looked little better than the wigs on sale now for Halloween. I contacted the seller and asked them if they had any styling in the picture...They told me no. Well, then I felt like there was something wrong. THEN they said "Oh but we send it without any styling at all so just run your hands through it and flip it out like in the picture." I tried....Trying my best to be reasonable....It fell flat within minutes. The wig says it's heat stylable, but after checking my other heat stylable wigs and asking friend

Last year I visited a craft fair and discovered in the paper decoration / paper crafting a super great new material.
Maybe some of you know it.
But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.
It can be used for paper decoration, for gemstones, paint and much more.

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!
Chatlog: Maullar Explains The LawSo the Huffington Post ran an article today entitled: Florida Accidentally Banned All Computers, Smart Phones In The State Through Internet Cafe Ban: Lawsuit. Funny little story, shows how backwards they are down in America's ol' dong, right? The only problem is, Florida did nothing of the sort. The law that's being challenged applies to "slot machines," which the amended statute defines as:Chatlog: Maullar Explains The Law8 months ago in Personal More Like This

This time me and Elffi were cosplay guests for TRACON in Tampere (Finland).
We had the duties to be judges for the World Cosplay Summit (WCS) preliminary Finland and we hosted a panel about "Cosplay around the world".
I debuted a new costume: Perona from One Piece <3!
So let's start with Saturday :3!
The building of Tracon is really big and pretty ^^. Also they had a really nice outside area next to a smaller lake .
I was the most excited for the World Cosplay Summit preliminary! We already had a pre-judging early in the morning. We were happy to have 13 really great teams. It was specially interesting to asked how they did certain parts. Some showed really outstanding techniques. I was
WIP: Perona from One Piece for Italy :DHello my friends~WIP: Perona from One Piece for Italy :D7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Elffi visited me for 1,5 weeks and we tried to finish as many parts as possible on our ONE PIECE costumes for the "COSPLAY SUMMER PARTY" in Italy where we will be cosplay guests <3.
Well this is my costume so far.....
Well some words about the costume ...
Oh my my I really understand now the troubles that One Piece cosplayers have with their costumes XD. The proportions are really really hard to get for a normal human body. The anime/manga has such a cartoony style that bodies are waaaays out or normal body shapes *laugh*. Also in every scene, every Artwork and every figure Perona's costume looks totally different x.x.....I tried to use the most references from a figure I found. Still I failed a bit the proportion of the skirt T_T...the tips got too pointy and long and the stars are too high ;O;....it was really not easy to get this.

Just until shit cools down on my side of the screen.
It's basically this: my life is having more downs than ups, and I'd rather take a break and try to (yet again) sort things out instead of pushing myself to keep pumping out utter shit to post on here for you guys to cringe at. I'm really sorry. But I just want to get a really good head start on actually writing my goddamn original story before I throw all the story mapping I did for it away.
Plus, I've gotten completely fed up with the quality of "popular" writing on here--mostly fanfiction, as most of you know used to be my forte, considering the fact that I used to write nothing but pointless, godawful Hetalia reader insert fanservice.
It feels like every time I browse through the fanfiction category, all I see are things that make my eyes bleed. Things where people don't know what spellcheck is or how to work a dictionary. Things where the terms "proper grammar" and "correct spacing" are apparently myths. T

to have all kinds of sexual orientation..."
"...as long as you have one.
If you don't then you're broken."
The Asexual Orientation
Asexuality is a sexual orientation where a person does not experience sexual attraction. One out of every hundred people is likely to be asexual and facts such as this are still pushing boundaries and challenging the thought that the pursuit of happiness doesn't have to include sexual attraction.
I am very passionate about creating bridges of understanding, as I have said many times before. To understand asexuality better, take into consideration that there are different ways of being attracted to a person and that these attractions are not necessarily tied together.
Hey.You are beautiful.Hey.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
You are important.
And don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
On those days - the ones where you can't even cry because you've used up all the tears - just try to stop and think. Think about the people who do love you. Who do care for you so much that if anything happened to you, they wouldn't know what to do.
I just want to write this somewhere for people to see because goddammit, I know. I know how it feels to feel like you're in a constant black hole. I still do. And I have been for too long now.
But I will not give in because I know deep in my heart, someday it's going to get better.
If anyone ever needs to talk, I'll be here. It may take a couple of days to respond, but I'll try.
And why am I posting this?
Let's just say that something happened today and I felt compelled to reach out because I know that even a few words on a screen can make all the more difference in a person's life.

20 cancer patients participated in a unique makeover experience.
They were invited to a studio. Their hair and makeup were completely redone.
During the transformation, they were asked to keep their eyes shut.
A photographer then immortalized the moment they opened their eyes.
This discovery allowed them to forget their illness, IF ONLY FOR A SECOND.
