A Year of Cosplay: 2013Wow, so another year has passed along with another line of cosplays. I’ll be a little more lengthy this year and share my thoughts about each costume I completed this year. Go below the cut to read more about my summary of cosplays for 2013..A Year of Cosplay: 20131 year ago in Personal More Like This
The first costume I completed in 2013 I had actually started in 2012. And that was Skyloft Link, which was debuted at Taiyou Con 2013.

When I played Skyward Sword for the first time, I loved Link’s Skyloft design and I caved. It wasn’t a cosplay that I had initially planned on doing, it just…sort of happened on a whim. I still didn’t quite understand the concept of lining, so things aren’t lined properly, but the fabric is “double-sided.” And I was still a little intimidated by applique, so I used fabric paint for the designs. But despite that, I thought the overall look of the costume tur

First off, I'm sorry I haven't been posting cosplay photos as much as I used to. I am in that stage where things outside of cosplay have taken over, but I really want to get back to cosplaying soon. I'm pretty sure once A-kon rolls around there will be a ton of photos and cosplay videos to share! TvT Especially since new cosplays are coming! I'm really hoping to get photos and such BEFORE a-kon too though.. TvT;; We'll see!
BUT!! If you ever want to see more than what I post on here, my Tumblr is probably the best place to go. I share updates and W.I.P. stuff etc etc, on there more than any other place. ♥
Also, A-KON!! People have been asking, and I now have the answer: YES! We are officially going to A-kon! I just recently booked a room for us and friends to stay in, so there's no going back now! We're really going! HOOPLA! >D< ♥ I'm really excited to see all of my friends again. It's been too long! Also, as far as what we're cospl

I have some big goals for next year!
Getting my thesis finished as good as possible, writing more of ZP and starting work on my second webcomic! Fixing up the ZP website in entirety, Opening up some stuff in my online shop!
a huge shout out and thanks to Dreamkeepers who has offered to help me publish Zoophobia’s first book, and for being very patient with me during this busy busy year!
I actually want to try to complete ‘Book One’ in entirety before publishing, but once this year is over I should be able to work full time on ZP so that would be relatively soon after I’d say!! I want the first book to be complete and full of fun stuff, concept art, and have a big presentation and maybe a ki

DKos - Danmarks nye COSPLAYMAGASIN!Hej kære medlemmer af Danish-Cosplay!DKos - Danmarks nye COSPLAYMAGASIN!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Det vil måske være i jeres interesse at vide, at der i dag er udkommet første nummer af et nyt dansk cosplaymagasin ved navn DKos! Dette er et cosplaymagasin som tilbyder artikler, billeder, anmeldelser, tutorials osv. Om alt indenfor cosplay. Der lægges vægt på at det er et alsidigt blad som er åbent over for både hjemmelavede, købte, vestlige og østlige cosplays, og man skal ikke være nogen speciel for at få noget med i bladet. Vores mission er at udbrede kendskabet og interessen for cosplay, og magasinet skal virke som en inspiration for nybegyndere såvel som garvede cosplayere.
I første blad vil der kunne findes fotoshoots af Young Justice, Hetalia, digimon mm., interviews med den danske cosplayer NadiaAxel (http://adlezakuseru.deviantart.com/) samt de udenlandske cosplayere Nanjokoji (www.nanjokoji.deviantart.com) og Aigue-Marine (http://aigue-marine.deviantart.com/), g

Also, I noticed on the recent poll that people have been asking me to do a new character (not just an OC) but a new character in general. Funny thing is, I already am! I already have the material and wig bought to make the cosplay. I think I'll have to start on it next month though, because this month we have a Halloween CMV planned. (Of which, due to some set backs, it might be posted late..)
And someone dropped out of the art commission list, due to leaving their accounts and losing contact, so if you would like a digital art commission, I am open for it! ♥ If you already placed an order for an art piece from me, and would like me to start now, throw a note at me and I'll give you my PayPal. Some of you may already know, but I changed it up. I will not start any art until you are able to pay for it. I can send you a WIP sketch but that is

If youve been inspired to customize your own clothes and dont know where to start, here are some ideas:
1. The thrift store is your best friend. Youd be surprised by all the amazing things you can find there. I recently got a beautiful jacket with a corset backing for just five dollars.
2. Screen printing is a great way to put your own designs on clothes. If youre feeling ambitious, check out this video tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ee_8IMx0uMo&featurelayList&p=7000A6A25CCD6ACC&index=14 If youre like me and prefer an easier, quicker approach, I

ERIDAN PANTS --how I did it!A lot of people are asking how I made my pants for the Eridan cosplay!ERIDAN PANTS --how I did it!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, here's a list of what I used.
- thrift store black satin pants
- duct tape
- white primer spray paint
- blue spray paint
- blue screen-printing paint
- blapck dye pen (screen printing ink would probably work fine too, i don't know!)
- paint thinner
- a lot of brushes
Then here's what I did, step by step!
1. WASH PANTS
- thrift store pants are very nasty!! don't be wearing them without this step
2. TAPE PANTS
- i put on the pants, and my friends helped me tape stripes on! we cut the duct tape in half to make them narrow.
- tape them everywhere, and be careful when you're taking them off unless you're moving right to the next step!
3. SPRAY PANTS ((!! make sure you have a few layers on under the pants! the spray shouldn't be directly applied to skin!!))
- spray down the now-taped pant

My deviantART StoryYeah, I know, I said I wasn't going to do this, but everyone else has me all warm and fuzzy and crap so why not. And yeah, this is going to break my personal "two weeks between major features" thing, but I don't care.My deviantART Story7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
So, I've flirted with dA on and off for years. I found it the first time when I was in high school in the early 2000s, but it was never more than a place to host my stuff then. I found it again in college, mostly to help me wrangle all the cosplay pics I was sorting through trying to find myself in them. I never hung out here.
Then in 2012 my life turned upside down. I left my life behind to move back in with my family. I was really low. Yes, I was that low, for those of you who get the reference. The only comfort I had being free from the circumstances I had been in before was that I could watch and listen to and read whatever the heck I wanted. I had been hearing about My Little Pony on Reddit, and resolved to try it. I fell in love. And the Bronies over on
Applejack is a Vine-Chopping Double-Airplane.Applejack is a Vine-Chopping Double-Airplane.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Think for a second about the nearly impossible amount of strength it would take to cut a living vine the thickness of a small tree with something as dull as a window without being able to build any momentum.
Alright, let’s do this.
Applejack exerted a certain amount of psi onto a large vine and broke it. How much psi can Applejack generate without a sweat?
We’ll work in SI units in this exercise.
One pascal (SI unit of pressure) is N / m^2
N = newtons of force applied
m^2 = meters squared where pressure is applied.
Let’s first find how many pascals the windowframe first exerts on the vine because of gravity.
N = 9.8 (the gravitational pull of the earth).
A dull window would have a large area exerting force, compared to a sharp, small edge. Various window measurements from Hom
