New Zealand, I Am Coming To Look At You!
gailsimone: Leaving Tuesday, be there Wednesday, for LOOKING AT! Who all will be at the Armageddon Expos in Hamilton and/or Wellington? Wooohooo!!! I know Dee will be there and she has all the exite and so do I, even though I am going to be more than a tad busy with the cosplay contest (I’m the judgey mcjudgeypants- but I have awesome people helping out always :) ) and always too...
Is this really a progress update?????
Heh, my last two reblogs both had a feathery theme… so now for something completely different! Tentacles! So my previous set of lekku work best when worn SWTOR style. But with Rachi I need to wear them slightly further forward. It causes more folds on the underside than I want but I could do some careful surgery I could quite quickly remove them of make them really adorably like wee fat...

teaandbrimstone: ericainchoate: anarcheluxemburg: No one better give me shit like “I don’t want wings” like, no fuck you. Wings would be so rad and ecologically friendly. They don’t use fossil fuels, they’re not cars, and best of all they’re fucking attached to you ALL THE TIME. You can just be like… I would have cicada wings. My back muscles would be fucking ripped and if I ever needed...
A woman’s worst nightmare? That’s pretty easy. Novelist Margaret Atwood writes...– Mary Dickson (lots of commentary snipped so look at the original for all the other heartbreaking comments) I’ve reblogged this quote before, I think. But reblogging now for the amazing commentary. I was having a discussion with my father and brother the other day. We were talking about receiving...

10 years, really?
Yep Saturday April 13 I spent my tenth anniversary of cosplaying (compared to costuming- we’ll get to that in a bit) at conventions so happy anniversary to me! It’s been an up and down decade and I want to devote a fairly long post about my experiences… View Post
macbeemer: No. You cannot make a post crusading for social justice and acceptance of all types of folks in the cosplay community and then immediately turn around and use the phrase “the best cosplay everyone else go home!” Sigh. Yes. No need to further expand on the difference between genetics, costume/makeup illusion work and photography and photographic manipulation… simply putting one...
A new start!
So by accident I made my sticky post publish immediately! Well, now you can see the work I have put in over the last few weeks to get my site updated and easier to navigate. I will be placing links to my Frazzled Frau and Saya Espanola site under the… View Post
The Pursuit of Cosplay Fame →
keyshakitty: neimhaille: tittybasket: Interesting article. This is a relatively new phenomenon in NZ, but it is starting to surface - I know there has been at least one person recently who seems to think that entrants in the Armageddon contest don’t make their own stuff. Protip, babes: WE DO. That’s the point. Luckily, there isn’t a whole lot of ill-will in the NZ community yet, but it’s...

anariazarrel: kailexanra: So playing my sentinel, K’Surda, I kept noticing that she would cross her arms to reach for her sabres. I wondered how viable that actually was and made the motions myself. Guess what animators? My breasts are kind of in the way and it would be so much easier to just reach two inches down for the… I believe it’s because in the films, jedi carry their lightsabers on...
lumissne asked: Backing up what Saf said - Thank you! I've always wondered what kind of products you used ( I definitely need to invest in a airbrush :o )
skyshuffler asked: i just wanted to thank you for making those posts! gosh you are so wonderful!
I don’t often do a specific link/promo of a particular product but if i do it’s because I have tried it and really like it. But we all have different needs. I need that permanence of paints. I know I find it easier to use non permanent paints (they blend much more easily for one) but I do move about so much and have to not worry about how people are bumping in to my lekku/pulling my...
Make up part one
I think I have to accept I am perma banned from my own site and hosts so Tumblr gets the blog posts I’d make over there. Sigh. I like to either work with street make up as a base and buff subtle/not so subtle colour in with brushes and velour pads. This works well when you have the colour in a compact where you can do touch ups but does last a good evening. Or I go hard core with the...
skyshuffler asked: Hello! :D I have some cosplays involving face painting and I really want to learn more about it. I was wondering what you meant by alcohol activated paint like what you used for your twi'lek? Also, could you please give me some advice on face paint? Thank you c:
