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!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.

See you guys at Fanime 2013!Doing some travelling again this year!More Like This
Luckily, our yearly family trips to San Francisco always coincide with the Fanime weekend. I'm guessing after this I may not be able to go back for a few years so I'm bringing 2 costumes along.
Wish I could also dress up on the first day but I'm arriving on Friday night LOL!
Unfortunately, the Capcom vs SNK gathering takes place on Friday. But I'll be going as Sakura anyway on Saturday. Any of you guys know if there's a Street Fighter gathering on the 25th?
However, I was able to find a Disney gathering that will happen on Sunday! Will definitely be bringing Capt. Sparrow along for that!
I heard a lot has changed venue wise with so much construction going on so it'll definitely be an adventure going around. I'm also hoping that the line to get a badge on site won't be as bad as last year. If I do decide to get one, I'm praying I won't be in line for 4 hours again >_
The Book Of Life: The First Prologue - Chapter 3The discovery of the blown out candle and the toll it had on her body came together in seconds. When Osvaldo had vanished, she’d already dropped to the floor, candies spilling everywhere. She clutched her chest, and her heart came to a stop. Her body writhed in pain, nails digging into her dress, and hot tears flooding her eyes. She couldn’t breathe, so she could not speak or cry out. The pain in her body matched the pain in her heart – the dead would not be allowed to rest in peace, and those that deserved to be remembered would be lost forever. Humanity had the right to be happy, and now that chance was gone.More Like This
Memories were the most precious things in the world, more valuable than land and power. She didn’t want to forget the little girl who saved money for her brother’s birthday present, she didn’t want to forget the kind customers who flooded her shop, and most of all, she didn’t want to forget Osvaldo. His image stayed in her mind, hi
Goodnight, Fearless Leader“I know you’re awake.”More Like This
I opened one eye and glanced over my shoulder at him. “And how could you tell?”
“Because your nose whistles when you sleep.” The blue-eyed leader sat next to me as I sat up, rubbing my eyes.
“Do you always look this pretty when you wake up?” He chuckled. “I look like ass every morning. I don’t think you realize how much I had to do to get ready to come in here.”
“You’re a turtle. How hard can it be? It’s not like you have any hair.” I laughed and pet his head.I could see his cheeks redden and I smiled a bit. “Whatcha blushing for there, fearless leader?”
He pushed my hand away from his head and looked the other way, chuckling.I looked at him and pulled his face over to look at me. “There’s a reason you came in here. Are you going to tell me why?”
He bit his lip and looked at me with curious blue eyes. “I just…um…”
