McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!Today is an incredibly exciting day!!!McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I feel incredibly lucky that on my birthday, I can finally reveal a long-awaited dream come true with all of you.
McCall's Patterns reached out to me last year to see if I would like to design some patterns for them. (Still reeling over this sentence, btw.) I had a meeting and lovely tour of their offices, and then got to work. My ideas were overflowing, but I knew exactly which patterns I wanted to design first...
We're proud to present "Yaya Han's Ultimate Bodysuit Pattern" as the first finished collaboration between McCall's Patterns and me.
It's a pattern we are sorely missing in the cosplay world - I know from having to alter and draft my own bodysuit patterns for many years. This patterns will make it easy for cosplayers (and everyone else) to tailor a bodysuit that will fit them like a glove, and use it as a base for thousands of costume ide

Congratulations everyone and thank you for your support over the past several days.
At this point, Hasbro is trying very hard to come up with a policy for dealing with our not-so-little community. The best thing folks can do now is give them some breathing room. So for now, no more calls or emails. Let's have faith they are going to do right by us. Now, more than ever before, the powers-that-be are aware of the size and buying power of our community.

This attitude is not ok, for many reasons beside it being completely illogical.
1) You don't get to decide who is a geek or not a geek. Period. Geekdom is about acceptance, not rejection. If you're all about Not Liking Other People That Like The Stuff That You Like, you're not a geek, you're a hipster. Who found a pair of glasses.
2) You don't get to decide who is hot and who is not hot. That girl at the con with thick thighs and a little bit of muffin top? She is a perfect 10 in my book, bro. Except that women's bodies aren't up for the judging. Her attractiveness or lack therof does not define her geekiness. The same way that it does not define her social experience. Pretty

As always~ English is not my native language so you might come across mistakes. My apologies! If anything is unclear feel free to ask me in the comments.
I'm just showing you what works for me and what's my personal liking. I'm focusing on eye make-up and additional tips. If you think this way of doing a boys cosplay make-up is is using way too much make-up that's totally fine. Everyone has his/her own preferences and this tutorial is just a hint who it can be done.
The shape of eyes differ a lot from one to another, so if you want to try it the way I do my make-up you might have to adjust it to your own eyes. Maybe you have already run into this problem before while seeing a well done eye make-up in a tutorial or worn by an asian cosplayer. Furthermore be aware of the fact that the shape of your eyebrows, wearing c
Rumors (Lies) about Vic MignognaRecently, Vic was announced as a guest at a convention I go to every year. As a fan, I was very glad to see that! Then the other day, I decided to check out the forums of that convention to see if there may be any hints as to who else would be coming. What do I find? A thread asking the convention staff why they booked a jerk like him for the con!Rumors (Lies) about Vic Mignogna4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The exact quote went like this: "even more of us (Risembol Rangers, formers of the latter, or not) know how much of a jerk he is to the staff of conventions, to other paid con guests, and to con attendees. Just why would you, the staff, resort to getting such a man onto your guest list despite knowing how rude and how much of a diva he is to any and everyone around him?"
I know rumors about Vic are nothing new, but I've never heard of someone actually questioning the con staff as to why they booked a certain guest! This person later apologized and said this: "I suppose he could've changed since the stories I've heard of first hand accounts in

Rise From the Dead
“Where are tonight the sword and its swinger, the holy spells and their singer? Where is the light to scatter the ghosts, the sight of dawn to shatter the frost? Fears can be hidden, and hearts’ fire kindled, but will shadows be caged and demons faced? The curses of liches linger like winds of winter, and wolves howl a hymn for the undead's hunt… who will be safe from the grim reaper’s swing, and who will fall in its grip?”

TaggersI want to tell you all about a book that means very much to me. Taggers, by author Brandt Miles.Taggers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I got to know this book because I was chosen for the cover, and this has meant more to me than you can imagine.
Taggers sends us on a journey inside the head of a troubled individual. His fight for surviving the world and his own mind is combined beautifully with philosophy and physics in a existentialistic masterpiece with an ingenious plot.
It's a vicious novel, and perhaps not for the faint of heart, but that's one of the things that I think makes it special. After all, life can be brutal.
Brandt Miles is an amazing author, father and man. He's worth supporting. Life hasn't been too kind on him, but he survived and brought this fantastic novel to all of us.
Taggers is not out yet. Brandt Miles is trying to raise money for the publication through this Kickstarter project: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/brandtmiles/taggers
Every donation is highly appreciated by both Brandt and me.

Confliction. (+a funny story)Confliction. I do not like it.Confliction. (+a funny story)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I had many cosplays planned for the near future... I promised to do Hena, Vaati Reborn for AWA this fall, to do a Hilda/Yuga photo-shoot someday, to finish Fi... and that movie... drat. I'm not sure how the project is going to turn out anymore and I'm worried.
Everyone was psyched to do it at first, but I think that now that the time to begin has come... I'm not sure if the others know quite what to do, or if they even know how to take it seriously yet.
My philosophy to begin with was "I'll have the hard work to set this thing up in the beginning, but after that it's their turn." Now... I'm not sure. I may be overdramatic, I may be realistic. I can never tell.
Haha, can hear my writer side beginning to show through again!? That's the effect of taking a break from cosplaying for only a week!
Or, the other possibility is that my tone is becoming more formal because... you know... him. :
