(Added on November 7)
Not everyone's Teiko uniforms are ready just yet, but we wanted to get a feel of things for the proper shoot so we did this for practice. It gave us a chance to try out our wigs and makeup and junk to see what we need to improve on for our actual cosplays.
The following portraits are the full-sized versions of what was squeezed into the above banner thing

Internet Etiquette (Edited with critique advice)Some people brought up some pretty important points, so I've added some additional information about critiques below!Internet Etiquette (Edited with critique advice)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Something that's been bugging me a bit lately is how the DA community has sorta changed over the years (and not in a good way). People are more bold and will post whatever's on their mind, and while that can be a good thing in some scenarios, I feel that people oftentimes say things that they might not realize will hurt someone's feelings.
I generally get a lot of positive feedback, and it really helps! It's always great to know that someone likes my work, and it keeps me motivated to keep going with this hobby. However, I'm still a human being, and negative criticism can hurt me just as much as anyone else. I'm not sure what it is, but the amount of really negative comments has increased these past couple years, and it really discourages me from even using this website anymore. Many times I've considered just disabling comments entirely, but I feel that would

Reviews: Cosplay Wig ShopsSo, here we start with the review thingy about cosplay stuff.Reviews: Cosplay Wig Shops3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I ran into a loooooooooooot of trouble in the past weeks regarding wigs I will start with them.
First of all some general important informations:
- ALWAYS keep an eye on the feedback of a shop. If there are negative or natural feedbacks READ THEM. Not every negative feedback is appropriate and some shops sell more than just wigs. So be careful.
- ALWAYS be carefull with shops that advertise with asian cosplayers. A lot of pictures are taken from the japanese highclass cosplaysupplier cospediawig or the chinese Tabaeo stores. Have a close look at the pictures. Often you can see some blured details or removed watermarks. I even found some fellow non asian cosplayers by now as advertisment for wigs they definitely didn't buy.
Some shops even take pictures from wigs on wigsstands from other sellers. Look and think twice if you buy there. You can be lucky and get what you see, but there is a pretty high chance you ge

Number 8 ~Kise Ryouta Lemon!~I arrived home as I breathed out and was angry. My shoot for Victoria's Secret didn't go so well since they cut my diet out and put me on another one considering they said I was getting heavier. They said if I cant lose a few I might be canceled from the fashion show in one month. I sighed and got out a few ingredients for cooking as I heard the door slam.Number 8 ~Kise Ryouta Lemon!~1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"Hey" I said and got steaks out and noticed his blonde hair was messed up. His day didn't go so well either.
"This is fucked up" he came in and my eyes widened I never heard Kise talk like that. It surprised me, there was only a few occasion where I heard him ever swear. Other than those he was happy.
"What happened" I asked and sat on the counter. I looked at him and he sighed and smiled at me. He felt guilty for swearing after all I knew because I lived with him for 7 years. After we got out of high school we were both models and we lived with each other.
We were always just friends but don't get me wrong, he told me he loved me, w

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!1 year 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:

Vocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.Jin's Flower Wreath ProcessVocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometime last May, Kat moonlightflight and I cosplayed our favorite Vocaloid song, "Just Be Friends".
Their outfits seem simple at a glance, but that actually makes things more complicated sometimes. Hahah. Despite Luka's dress looking like something you could probably find in a mall, Charmie yaoiangel14 made the dress from scratch exactly as it looked in the artwork, just for Kat moonlightflight. Kat and I also did our best with the part of their outfits that had the most amount of detail (which also happens to be our favorite parts) the flower wreaths.
I have some pictures of the progress of my wreath, so I thought I'd share them. This probably isn't the best method of going about this, but this is how I did mine and I found it pretty easy. (I wish I could have taken more photos or a video, but to be honest I wasn't quite sure I'd pull this off at first. Hahah!)

The subject of this contest is about YOUR Original Character.

This contest allows media such as:

The styles may be manga/anime, semi realistic, realistic, whatever, but only digital paintings please.
I'd like to see your OC on canvas this time maybe we'll see 3D on next contest.
I personally love OCs, they are made from our imagination and during years I saw really epic OCs, sometimes they're better

Anyway, the point of this contest is to design me some OCs! I've really been in an art block and longing for some new designs lately, so why not? There will be 3 winners ( maybe 5? )- the 3 winning characters will belong to me. Everyone else who participated ( EXCLUDING the winners ) may do whatever they want with their entry after the contest ends ( keep it/sell it/etc ). I may also give out honorable mention prizes if there are an excessive amount of entries. ♥
