Helpful Tips on Serah's Default FFXIII-2 Outfit.V2
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is finally out! So far I like it c: I got the Collector's Edition with Serah's Genji Bow and Summoner's Garb~
I had many of you asking when I was going to post on how I made my version 2 outfit and my version 2 bow-blade. I said soon, and so I'm writing during my free time I have between classes. If you have any specific questions you can comment here or send me a note. I don't bite! Some of you already know I'm really nice and helpful. If any of you like to follow my old version check this journal: http://yuuri-k-sama.deviantart.com/journal/Helpful-tips-on-Serah-s-FFXIII-2-outfit-215796493
If you use any of my ideas it would be nice if you credit me Also, to me this outfit is not perfect, but I feel like I have improved and I'm trying my hardest to get better (especially with make-up and posing). I learned to sew back when I was in high school by myself.

These pictures were from June last year I'M SORRYYYYY
First time we wore our our Disney cosplays was for Toycon 2011:
The weekend after, a few of us got together to do a studio shoot because we were just excited, and I wanted to finally try out a pseudo movie poster photo treatment for cosplay photos. It was definitely a challenge. But it made me really happy to show my friends how the final images turned out.

Somehow, this silly page has hit 9 million views!
Just to be absolutely clear, I do not think the views make me any better than anyone else. I mean, I'm sure some of those are from people who don't even like me. But I guess my point is that it's crazy to imagine that this page has been opened up that many times, and I can't help wondering where all these hits have come from. And I just feel so grateful that a select few people in those millions have come to be irreplaceable friends to me.
It's been a wild ride with all of you guys through all this time. To me this isn't just a page where I simply showcase my artwork or the cosplay photos my friends and I come up with. This site has opened up so many opportunities for me, and has introduced me to some of the most wonderful people I've met in my life.
It's been a journey, and my interactions with the people here have taught me more than I can express.

I might start on it during the next months during college. Hopefully, I get it done by the summer and bring it to Otakon. In the future I'll remake some parts (now that finally there are better cgi pictures) and add on to this~
I was surprised with the amount of positive feedback for this costume, you're all so kind! The version 1&2 costume has a Daily Deviation here at DA, featured in PSM3 UK Playstation Magazine and Costume Showcased at Cosplay.com. I am really happy that my armor has been an inspiration to others, so I like to share my helpful tips!

The ugly side of the cosplay communityI wasn't going to write about this, because my sis and I don't care about people who spend their time posting hateful comments about cosplayers. Though, I like to share my thoughts with you all. I've heard and seen the cosplay group I was with, The iDOLM@STER, was featured in sites where many commented negatively. To be honest I laugh and feel sorry for those commenters.The ugly side of the cosplay community in Personal More Like This
You all have probably seen it, people whine about anything like how the cosplayers look, the way they sew, the way they pose, etc... "Omg it's not perfect!" Who in this world is perfect? No one. For instance, I can't help it, but I like to make derp looks in photos XD
One of the main points they bring up on cosplayers is their looks. When I was young I was stupid. I was very critical about myself and everything that happened around me. All of that has changed though. I have a scar across my belly and I bet many girls wouldn't want that, but the scar means a lot to me. It reminds me that I was near death and the doctors

I used a milkshake wig and it was styled with hairspray, but I bought a new wig that's much longer.
DollyEye Blue and Serah WigI love the new wig I got for Serah, my old wig was too short. The wig has light pink, dark pink, and light brown strands, similar to my old one. It's heat resistant which is a major plus when styling. A friend of mine in DA bought her Serah wig from the same seller, but her wig is very light pink. I'm not sure if I got lucky in getting this color, so I wouldn't recommend this seller I got this wig from.DollyEye Blue and Serah Wig in Personal More Like This
I also got DollyEye Blue contact lense from DollyEye http://www.thedollyeye.com/catalog.php?category=90 , they were on sale so I had to get them. I like that they are vibrant and have a black rim around the blue.

I used Stretch Hemp Rayon 2 x 1 Rib Knit Natural fabric. It's very stretchy and has a snugly fit to the body, no zipper was used for this outfit. I lined the dress with the same rib knit fabric and I connected the hood to the dress. The hood is lined with Kona Cotton Peach fabric. The peach looking arrow detailing on the hood was ironed on with heat n' bond. I connected the peach bow on the middle of where the hood starts. Th

The date was August 18th, 1962.
Everything about the Cavern Club was so breathtakingly surreal. Memories in my head dating so far back that they come to me in black and white, stirring my mind, pulsing at the back of my skull to be coloured. Gentle footsteps would carry me in through those fluorescent doors and I'd suddenly be lost in a whirr of girls. Pushing on every side of me, an unbridled expression of hate and shared love; not of each other, probably not of the music-it was all just our anticipation-swirling in a whirlpool full of pineappled heads, splotched on makeup, shrill cries of

Hands shook only so slightly when I finally mustered up my courage to knock on the door. Swallowing, I prepared myself.
"Ringo, lad! How goes it?" John beamed.
"I'm leaving the band, John."
His exuberant look changed to despair in seconds. "Ringo. Don't do this. We finally feel like a band again, what's this all about?"
"I'm not playing well," I stated bluntly. "And... well, you three all seem so happy and I feel like an outsider."

Gently silhouetted against the damp light of the room was John, head buried in his hands, fingertips nestled within layers of burnt auburn hair. Sluggishly, his head rotated and he looked deeply into me.3. Mystery of the Night in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Unbearable, really. I woke up that morning not feeling good in the slightest.
There was an excruciating pain on the right side of my throat, and it was the first thing I noticed when I opened my eyes. Nearly wincing, I managed to pull myself out of bed and get dressed. Wandering into the next room, I noticed everyone was up already, and I silently scolded the massive headache that was pounding away at my skull. How drunk did I get last night?
"You're late, Ringsie~" John's voice rang
