Hi, and thank you for visiting my dA page!

I'm known as Darth Sunshine and sometimes "Mystic" in the cosplay community. In the "real world" I'm better known as Andrea. I enjoy frantically throwing costumes together during what free time I have during breaks from school.

I'm a huge fan of Star Wars and the Legend of Zelda series. My other "main" fandoms include Harry Potter, Futurama, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Harvest Moon. Most of my costumes come from these series. :)

I've been cosplaying for about eleven years now, and don't intend to stop any time soon!

Hey dA, I made an Instagram! I've been trying to find a social media outlet for cosplay that's actually well suited to the hobby, so I'm giving this a try.  That's not to say I'm abandoning my dA account; I'm still using this as my main gallery for my finished work.

I miss the days of Cosplay.com, when the hobby was centralized there.  Nearly everyone I met at cons three or four years ago had an account there; it made it so much easier to find people and follow their work.   Pretty much everyone has a Facebook page these days, but the recent changes they've made to how pages reach people have really restricted what I see in the newsfeed I had created to follow other cosplayers. :/

I'm hoping Instagram will be a better way to keep up with people.  Give it a follow if you like, and let me know if you have one! www.instagram.com/darthsunshin…

Hi! Just read your tutorial on body paint. I am cosplaying Oola and so far my makeup tests have not been great. For reel creations (alcohol based) Pam says to do a layer of sponging and then airbrush but you said to skip the layer with the sponge. Thoughts?

Personally, I found that step unhelpful with Reel Creations.  While my water based paints sponged on well, the Reel Creations paints I used did not, so I just skipped ahead to airbrushing those straight on.  However, a different sponge might work better than the ones I had in my kit at the time.  I've heard of some girls using brushes to get their first layer, or all of their alcohol activated make up on. 

As always, I'd recommend experimentation and seeing what works well for you! :)

Thank you so much? May I ask what type of sponges you were using?
