Lightning Returns Demo Second Hand ImpressionsThe Nico Nico live stream of Square Enix's Lighthing Saga presentation cut off just before the best part: an actual first look at the gameplay in Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII.Lightning Returns Demo Second Hand Impressions in Personal More Like This
After high level introductions to the game from Motomu Toriyama, Yuji Abe, and Isamu Kamikokuryo, which you can see here (http://andriasang.com/con2jl/ffxiii_lightning_videos/), Square Enix turned off the cameras, told everyone in the audience to do the same, then showed a first trailer. This was followed by a gameplay demonstration.
The trailer provided an introduction to the game's world and its time progression system. One sequence showed a time counter: "00/02:54:23." Famitsu speculates that by clearing quests, you can increase this timer.
Another sequence showed Lightning, dressed in a new outfit, in pursuit of the criminal in a murder incident. She pursues a group of suspicious people, making use of cover actions -- hiding behind walls, for instance. During the presentation, Toriyama explained that

As the World Turns, So Does LightningIn a new interview with 4gamer, the team behind Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII open up with some new information about the game and the approach to developing the third and final entry in “Lightning’s Saga”. Present were producer Yoshinori Kitase, director Motomu Toriyama, lead designer Yujii Abe, and art director Isamu Kamikokuryou.As the World Turns, So Does Lightning in Personal More Like This
When asked why Lightning Returns wasn’t called “Final Fantasy XIII-3″ as it is the end of a trilogy, the team felt this entry was unique enough to warrant a different name — as calling it XIII-3 might give the impression that it would be a direct evolution of Final Fantasy XIII-2. The game is a “new experience” in layman’s terms, as Yoshinori Kitase put it.
Director Motomu Toriyama explained that the concept of “World Driven” as a theme for Lightning Returns is drastically different than previous FFXIII titles. Explaining Final Fantasy XIII as “Story Driven”, and Fin

The latest report focuses on the Dead Dunes – the desert location set in the game’s world of Nova Chrysalia. This area is dotted with numerous ruins and Lightning can slide around to explore the landscape. The magazine also reveals a new ability for Lightning – dubbed “Overclock.” This ability can slow down time and is said to be her “ace in the hole” or trump card. The Overclock ability is activated through GP – a new type of point system.
If you look closely, Lightning is fighting some sort of dragon enemy in the sands, and in another screen is wearing what looks like a new outfit.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is scheduled to launch this Fall worldwide.

In this week's Famitsu, FFXIII and XIII-2 producer Yoshinori Kitase says that at the upcoming FF series anniversary event, Square Enix will make an announcement regarding Lightning Saga, the next development in the Final Fantasy XIII project. This, of course, is what Square Enix said when it provided details on the event a couple of weeks back.
Kitase adds a couple of additional bits in his Famitsu commentary. The new project has just recently started, says Kitase. We'll get the project's official title at the anniversary event.
The anniversary event will be held in Shibuya from August 31 through September 2. The big announcements will come during a stage event on September 1.
Famitsu weighs in on Lightning ReturnsThis week’s Famitsu has quite the scoop on Lightning Returns this week, including their expected four-person review. The team at Famitsu ended up scoring the game a 37/40 or 10, 10, 8, 9 individually. In comparison, Final Fantasy XIII was rated at 39/40 and XIII-2 a 40/40 in 2009 and 2011 respectively.Famitsu weighs in on Lightning Returns in Personal More Like This
According to the reviewers, the battles in Lightning Returns are interesting and the feel for speed is great. They are “extremely entertaining,” but if the player fails to pay attention to an enemy’s weakness even trash mobs can prove difficult. As a result, it’s important to make split-second decisions during battle. Even on Easy mode, Lightning Returns can be surprisingly difficult. The time constraints don’t appear to factor into that difficulty too much though, and didn’t stress the reviewers out much at all.
It’s not all about the battles, though. Clearing quests is obviously the goal here and the amount of freedom given to the player

It looks like inns really are making a comeback in Lightning Returns. You also get a look at some of the dishes you’ll be able to buy to restore Lightning’s health in this game, as well as some interesting background information about the construction of Luxerion and Lightning’s default weapon set. Meanwhile, in the Dead Dunes the leader of the Thief’s Guild has sent an emissary to talk with the Liberator. Apparently that leader is someone from a previous game in the series, but who could it be? In another shot we get to see classic Lightning logic. Got a problem? Slice it up and get the details later.

Speaking in an interview with Famitsu this week, character designer Tetsuya Nomura shared a few bits and pieces regarding his involvement in the upcoming title. The basic order for the design was to create something fashioned after “a leather body suit.” The image for the arms was to be modeled off of a spinal column, however the sunglasses and shield were possibly designed by another person.
Other design news has come about for newly revealed character Lumina as well. Her design, as well as the design for Lightning’s other costumes, were created by Toshiyuki Itahana of Final Fantasy IX fame.

1. Switch off that teacher mode Ana!
So maybe I started off wery wrong trying to give some unnecesarry advices on posing and expressions. I quickly realised that I shouldn't have.
This is probably because I switched into that teacher mode working on a very special cosplay panel. I hope I didn't seem to be to bossy - I seriously didn't mean to scare anyone
I was worried I made a horrible mistake but felt a lot better when Stephen the phtograper used the same analogy and example I used at the beginning of the session to guide the very last cosplayer to that specific facial expression desired for the photo.

Good news, I am finally back with all my power and will to YEAH COSPLAY As you probably noticed first costume I am working on is my beloved Elementor.
A word about it:
About 6 years ago I started playing Fly For Fun, a MMORPG game. I remember having loads of fun online with my guild, friends and some funny enemies I had I remember grinding hours long, drinking Red Bulls just to be able to reach new level and wear that bloody red outfit I loved so much. I even took couple of days off from work when my char reached lvl 60 and I had to switch jobs from Magician to Elementor. Crazy times. I was so much into Flyff
Well as you see I am not anymore - life. But... it seems I will be able to do one more little thing related to Flyff... wear myself that amazing suit, hat and crazy boots hahahaha and become an Elementor for couple of hours
I expect to have loads of fun with it... hopefully you will enjoy this cosplay as much as I do!
Characters and cosplay plansUntill now I only cosplayed two characters. After a very determined, concentrated and independent Lightning where I had to play cold and standoffish I decided to try something new. I wanted to prove to myself that I am not a one character cosplayer only and I choose a character that was completely opposite to Light. And so a cute and friendly Elementor was born.Characters and cosplay plans in Personal More Like This
Now it's time for the third character... this time again something in a completely new direction. This time let's go with a very peacefull character who can ease the suffering when her team is in need. I will have to be angelic, calm, amd move smoothly...

This costume is 100% made by me, everything is made from scratches. Apart from soles of the shoes, wig and contact lenses. This is a whole new story with this costume, I think it's far more advanced then Lightning, bacause of the shape of the sleeves, collar, tights, boots and OMG all these details, ribbons and stuff. You can't even imagine how difficult it was to figure our how to get some particular shapes with fabric.
And most important staff. Of cours I decided to get a glowing one instead of the one with feathers hopefully I will get my delivery from China ASAP oth

-People who are so eager to have FFVersus13. Can't you understand?!

Do you think what you're all requesting is that easy to give? All things takes time. Have PATIENCE! I know not all have that kind of thing. But are you rantings helping you? No. FFVs13 has been in development for 6 or more years and you've been ranting for them to stop FF13. Look at the story first before you rant! It's FNC! LRFF13 and FFvs13 maybe can have some connection for us to understand the story clearer! Each game have it's OWN team. It's just that Nomura is h

Since the VEEEERY FIRST TIME I LAID MY EYES ON THEM I FELL IN LOVE WITH THEM, (whether they're a canon or not.) but you see, guys? yes I know they don't have that great number of fans, but I was really surprised learning that they have some soft spot for ech other and even Toriyama already announced that they're canon!
and Snow if you'll look back in FFxiii events, he was the one who fought and defend his love for Serah to Lightning, since Light is against their relationship but in the end . Look? Light understands Snow and accepts his relationship to her sister.
Why LighTis Exist!I just decided to create this journal to answer some questions bugging every anti-lightis on WHY WE SHIP LIGHTIS?Why LighTis Exist! in Personal More Like This
Now I will tell here why I ship LighTis and treat them as CANON!
First, obviously MOST of us liked a pairing because on how they looked together, before we know what will be their relationship like. I'm gonna mention some pairings here which I and am NOT shipping.
Some of you are saying that FFXV isn't out yet and we didn't even know what Noctis will be like. And that too will I say to some stella/noctis ,Fang/Noctis, Serah/Noctis and Tifa/Noctis and Aerith/noctis and ALL Noctis shippers: Why do you ship those women to him IF we didn't even know any much knowledge to him except being a SHY PRINCE WHO'S TRYING TO ACT COOL TO HIDE HIS SHYNESS AND EVEN SAID THAT HE DON'T ACT AS WHAT A PRINCE SHOULD REALLY ACT.
Of course you guys will also answer me: Because I see noctis x [insert name of the one you ship with him] like this and that and they're omg perfect and etc. IN YOUR EYE
Weird DreamSo I had this weird/awesome dream last night, here's what happened:Weird Dream in Personal More Like This
I was in some kind of concert area place, but everyone was waiting for the event to start. I had no idea what it was, but I was hoping it was Hollywood Undead or Linkin Park or something cool like that. The setup was more like a movie theater, but the stage was like something you'd see at a concert. So I'm there alone, just waiting for the damn thing to start or figure out what the hell it was.
Then someone came by and sat next to me, some stranger. I didn't acknowledge or greet him, because you know, kind of antisocial with things like that. Just sitting there waiting for the thing to start. Some time passes by and my eyes started to wander. I noticed the guy sitting next to me has some awesome tattoos, they looked just like the one's that Xavier has, as in the serpent like dragon winding down his arm.
So I'm like "Hey, I like your tattoos dude." And he's like "Thanks." and then that voice, sounds so familiar. And I l

Because you know, I'm to impatient to wait another six months. But, Kagekao was created on 12/29/12.
And look where he is now, so popular ;~; I'm so proud of my little Kage-sama. He used to be just a little background character who I had to explain was my OC in every pic he appeared in, and how he has his own group, tons of fangirls, tons of fanart, and all the wine he can drink because he stole my f-!#ing key! -whacks Kage over the head-
Also I was looking into it, Xavier's birthday is Nov 25 (that's when the OC who he is based on was created), Zehnder is Feb 24 (Not the day he first appeared nameless, but the day he was named and given a personality), Zippers is March 10 (not the day of his first DA appearance but the day of his first sketch), and I'm too lazy to go in to the others' birthdays.
And on a random note. I've been staring at this adorable gif I made a while back :thumb323066551
Creepypasta birthday scenario gameSo recently I've been looking at those birthday scenario games (where you select your month and day and see what happens) and I've only found two creepypasta ones, and I didn't really care for half of the characters there.

I got so stressed that I snapped in my dream.
Oh damn, it was one of those earthquake moments where everything builds up and you explode. Yeah.
I get scary when that happens to me. I think what happened was I was at some sort of party and someone cut one of my claws nails when I wasn't looking and oh damn I got pissed off (do you have any idea how long it takes to grow these claws I broke one like two months ago and it's still catching up to the rest even with trimming). I kicked him in the crotch like five times. And I was wearing heels. HEELS. AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA. yes I know I was fabulous
Seriously though I know I was scary because I was going off just insane. And I KNOW I was scary because Zehnder was there with me. And I scared him. Yeah I scared Zehnder because I was so damn pissed off.
He's like twice my height and he just looked down at me like 'Y-you wanna go kill someone . . ?'

BUT Before I go into my analysis of why he is dead; I want to add something to my last Random Thought analysis thingy on Slenders and Shinigami (http://gingaakam.deviantart.com/journal/Random-though-Slenders-and-Shinigami-384569832 )
I stated that "I'm not sure if a human can become a slender; as I'm pretty sure slenders are born, not made from a transition. " BUT I had forgotten all about Sexual Offenderman (Sorry Smexy) and how he was once a human who was turned into a slender by Splendorman. And I was talking with someone on this topic as well. So it seems that the ways that slenders reproduce is either from breeding or slenders turning humans into slenders. However it seems that there are less female slenders than male slenders, which would reduce the likelihood of reproducing that way, and not all of them want to have kids. And there are probably only a few slenders who know the secret to making a human a slender, because if they al
Slendy is messing with meThis is random but made me laugh. So maybe like an hour or so ago, hour and a half, some taiko started outside my house. It's taiko because it's a Japanese holiday, Obon, so they play Taiko and stuff. And was bored, convincing Kage to go into the chat 'cause it's empty and he could do whatever the hell he wants in there. And I guess Slendy heard of it, and he don't wanna see Kage stripping, so he totally messed up my computer. Like, I don't know what happened technically but it's alright now. My music started buzzing and making staticy noises. The internet was just off. My comment text post thingies text was slow so the words were getting messed up. Stuff like that.

Sunday Special ,D WIG HEAD TUTORIAL!Yo!Sunday Special ,D WIG HEAD TUTORIAL! in Personal More Like This
Okay. It's Sunday. But I've promised to provide you with some new tutorial today also! *grin*
SO! HOW 'BOUT A WIG HEAD TUTORIAL ;D ESPECIALLY FOR YOU MY BIG HEADED FRIENDS!
Actually... I just hate all the wig heads for sale. My head size is 62cm. So you can believe how well those 55cm wig heads fit me.
I even have some problems with all the wigs! I always have to cut off all the adjustable size wraps! ;__; And even then they are too small for me!
Well, my solution for the problem is this!
With only 10 euros! Yeah, around 15 dollars you can make your OWN wig head.
Which is exactly the same shape as your own head.
So you can actually style your wig only with this! No need to put it on and cut trough a mirror anymore! ^^
We all have a different face. Eyes, nose, lips. They are all in different places!
That's why I really recommend to make your own wig head. To get the best results in wig styling!~
Here ya go!
First! You need a packet of straws, a packet of cling film and one who

I'll be back on wednesday. I can't go online for this short time. This means I can't submit pictures, answer notes, comments or replies.
I wish you a great time.

I just want to say sorry that a wasn't really active the last few weeks. I have so much work to do and no time for my hobbies. But I hope next week I'll have more time so I can finish some pictures and requests I'm working on.

Tux Team Guide to Posing and Convention EtiquetteMan, I miss the feeling of being able to roll around in bed and sleep for as long as I want. Nowadays, my friends and I haven't been able to experience that even on weekends.Tux Team Guide to Posing and Convention Etiquette in Personal More Like This
As of now, my brain is too fried to write up a proper journal entry about our volcano GARventure, and one of my usual event reports (as you can see on the right side of my journal) about Cosplay Mania, but I'd like to take this chance to share a part of our lecture of sorts at the Cosmania cosplay workshop last Sunday.
China snowpeachdrop, Kat moonlightflight, El rosiael and I were invited to talk about general cosplay planning, like fabric selection, wig styling, cosplay makeup and photography. My friends might post the other parts, but for now here is our silly guide about posing for cosplay photos, and convention etiquette. The actual presentation was actually longer, and with lots more examples, but here is a condensed rundown of what we talked about, fo
On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a
Jin Attempts To Explain Cosplay Photography As requested by many of you, I've submitted this guide as a dA news article. Here is the link. I'm happy this proved to be useful for a lot of you guys! It's the least I can do to give a little something back for your appreciation of our work. Thank you!Jin Attempts To Explain Cosplay Photography in Personal More Like This
First of all, let me warn you that by the end of this journal entry, you may find yourself sick of my face. (If you aren't already.) I'll be using mostly myself as an example for the things I'm going to discuss, because I'm the only person I can poke fun at without restrictions.
I get asked a lot of questions about these cosplay photos that most of you have come to know me for. Sometimes it's about the techniques we use, requests for tips and advice for other people who want to do something similar. Other times, the comments come from people who aren't familiar with cosplay, but are curious about it and are interested to know more. So I thought of making this li

In this post, I'll get into how I did each one!
Intro, and some bad old pictures
For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face?
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al
Before Cosplay Makeup: Basic Skincare!Before I write about cosplay makeup, I figured I should discuss some skincare basics. I feel it's important to know how to take care of your skin before you start putting gunk on it! This is really very basic so I think those of you with your own regimens already might be bored by it! But here it goes!Before Cosplay Makeup: Basic Skincare! in Personal More Like This
I'm not an awesome guru wizard thing, but I'll just share some general concepts and products that work for me. It's different for everybody, but I hope this will be helpful! For your sreference, my skin type is combination: normal to dry with an oily nose. Hahah! Not my T-zone, just my nose!
Recently, my male friends had gotten very interested in makeup for cosplay and asked me for tips on how to go about it. (I think this was fueled by Kaname's visit to our country for Cosplay Mania '12, and they saw how beautiful he looks. ) I decided to ask them about their skincare regimen to figure out what products might work for their skin type.
When I asked what they wash their face w
Long rant is loooooooooooooooooooooooooooongANGST FOR THE LULZLong rant is loooooooooooooooooooooooooooong in Personal More Like This
Considering it's something people do for recreation, there sure is a lot of drama surrounding cosplay circles. Come on, you guys. It is NOT serious fucking business. Pardon my ranting, but there are things that have been bothering me for a while now, and I guess I just need to get them off my chest.
Popularity MY ASS
Here's a touchy topic - popularity on deviantART. I've always been turned off by the fact that there's a Popular section up on the front page. But maybe that just wasn't the best word choice for it. The dictionary definition seems appropriate enough, but stigma for that term does exist. You know, the way it's used in mass media; reflecting the culture of school kids who create unnecessary hierarchy amongst themselves, which leads to discrimination. There's the "A Group", the popular kids.
Speaking from the perspective of a Visual Communication student, it is actually interesting to see what kinds of art cater to the majority of the populati
