I'm not sure if you've been asked this already. But, how many feels did you guys get during and after watching the Legend of Korra season finale!? I think I'll be crying more cause I'm so re-watching it!
We got feels, of course!
But Sylar and I have a lot of hang ups on this season. :/
Any advice for wearing a braided wig all day? I did Blink from Days of Future Past and by the end of the day, the underside of the braid (that was rubbing against my jacket) looked pretty nappy, the other side of the braid wasn't looking too hot either. I knw it's not the quality cause it was from Arda and when everything was call combed out ad everything, it was smooth again.
This just tends to happen with wigs. It happened with my Elsa wig and it was a NIGHTMARE with my Miku wig.
The best solution I found was to either hairspray the crap out of the braid once it was set — or to cover the underside with some pomade styling wax or gel. It helped keep in all the flyaways and prevent SOME of the mess.
If you really want it to stay put. Right after you hairspray it, go over the hairsprayed area with a blow dryer like your setting it to a style.
For a brief time I’m opening up Cosplay Commissions.
Depending on what inquires I get, I may take on only 1 commission or maybe 4-5. It depends on what projects are proposed.
If you are interested, please email email@example.com with..
-Character Name/Series -References of Character -WHEN you need this costume (if you need it for a con less than two months away — do not ask me!) -What you need of the costume -Your budget -Your Zip code for a shipping estimate
If I do not get back to you by Saturday, then I did not choose your commission to take on. But thank you for the interest!
ps. Priority will go to anyone wanting a Margeary Tyrell dress because I’m biased and that dress was fun to make and I love Margeary okay bye.
Greetings, this question is semi-important. Anyways, I need help with wig styling for Flemeth. Like, how would I do the horns with the white wig? ;-; please help me, I already know that the wig will be the death of me..
I image you will need to make the bulk of the shape of the horns fist with either foam or wire (or both) and then wrap the hair around it it make the illusion that its all hair. Sort of like this? But on a smaller scale.
Sheila and Sylar - I nominate you for the ice bucket challenge! Just so you know, as of today, the ALS foundation has earned $22.9 million since the ice bucket challenge has gone viral. You have 24 hours to respond!
Don’t you have to do it yourself in order to be nominated? I don’t think this counts.
Besides — considering the massive drought here in California I don’t think it would be too good for the state….
My favorites are First Class and Days of Future past most. United is good and I don’t care for the wolverine series and Sheila doesn’t really dig xmen all that much (she likes the newer ones but only because she ships eric and charles ^//////^)
Sylar (And Sheila if you enjoy it as well!) I am very happy to hear there are more people who are into roleplaying! (Found that off a previous answer) Have you ever roleplayed in MMOs or considered it? Don't know if you would enjoy it or not since it is a different type of roleplay compared to forums, but I know I certainly fell in love with it so figured if you never have then I'd throw that out there.
It is certainly different from forum roleplaying, or IM roleplaying ( which is what Sheila and I do when we’re not together. ) We’ve both tried it, with eachother, but its difficult in certain MMO’s, especially one’s you aren’t too interested in story wise.
So to answer your question, yes we’ve tried it, but no, its not something we frequently do in MMo we play (FFXIV).
Sylar what are your favorite things to do? (Hobbies, favorite video games, movies, etc.)
I play a lot of games. Primarily, any KOEI Warriors title, from samurai, to dynasty, to my favorite Orochi. I also play a lot of League of Legends. (Summoner name: Sanguinaire)
My biggest hobby however is Roleplaying. I’m an avid roleplayer, specifically on Gaia Online in group Rp’s for anything that interests me, from series like Naruto, Bleach, Final Fantasy, Code Geass, or even Avatar and others. Sometimes something original comes along and I get into someone elses original story, but that is rarer.
I also roleplay with sheila, spend a lot of time on Youtube, and occasionally go drinking (Notsooftenalchoholisgross) / dancing with sheila / friends.
Sylar, what are some of Sheilas quirks that you love?
This is a curious one. took me a bit of thought, and I still couldn’t come up with much.
She does however do something that has been both a joy and a bit of a dread since before we started dating.
Sheila talks in her sleep. . or rather used to quite alot, and still does under the right circumstances. You can carry a literal conversation sometimes. other times, she’ll grab you and start talking about something, sleepily, that has nothing to do with anything. Sometimes I go “aaawwww cute.” Sometimes I don’t know she’s asleep, and the next day I say ” Remember this?” And she be like ” Nah.” -_-
So as far as quirks go, its really just that one that stands out. Its one of those things that is entirely unique as something I’ve not experienced in someone else i’ve met before.
As far as everything goes, I don’t know. There are always things you feel are the constants, and While I hope to acting professionally, living off my talent and hard work, be with sheila and be wonderfully happily in love and maybe be married already have kids. . I can’t say I can see where i’ll be in ten years ^^
I really only live in a small window of awareness of time. I think about yesterday, today, tomorrow, and thats it. Anything outside of that is rarely in my thoughts, and while I of course make intelligent choices toward my future, I don’t often ponder on them. I’m happy where I’m at, and the past and future are so uncertain, and I don’t like uncertainty.
I do however hope I’ll be happy, working, and still in this glorious love with Sheila in 10 years time. ^/////^
I WANT TO COSPLAY REALLY BADASS/SCARY CHARECTERS BUT I AM BARELY FIVE FEET TALL AND LOOK LIKE A CHILD- An angry novel by me
I want to cosplay really cute small characters but I’m really tall and look like I’m in my twenties
The sequel written by me
I only want to cosplay male characters with broad shoulders, but i have crazy girly curves.
I want to cosplay but I am broke and live with my mom - the epilogue
Too Short — Never underestimate the power of heels and perspective photography! Or ask your fellow cosplay groups to lean or sit in their pose so you appear taller!
Too Tall — Perpective photography is for you too! Just do the opposite! Take photos from above and foreshortening shots! Wear flats, and sit or lean forward in group shots! No one can tell your too tall if you sit!
Too old - Too young — Makeup, makeup, makeup! Anyone could look uber Kawaii or uber DONTFUCKWITHME if they know where to apply their bronzer and concealer! Try youtube for tutorials on the character you wanna be!
How did you two meet and ended up deciding on making aicosu ^^ (been wondering that for a while)
You can read about how we met on our FAQ — but as far as how or why we decided to be ‘aicosu’ (you can read why the name on the FAQ) — was really just because we wanted to show our pictures on DA and needed to create a joint account to share the photos. Especially since we planned to keep cosplaying together.
Do you have any tips for wearing heels at a con (esp when your day is really busy)? I recently cosplayed a character with three inch go-go boots, and used gel-heel inserts, but by the time I got out of the costume the balls of my feet felt like death (the gel inserts couldnt fit in the toe of the shoe). I love the costume, but wearing it for more than a couple hours is a pain :/
Heels are always going to be a pain, even with all the tips I’m about to give you. Keep in mind that they just aren’t great for your feet, especially over long periods of time. So no matter what, once the day is through your feet will always hurt.
-Wear your heels a lot before the con. DO IT. Wear around the house, wear them to and from the mail. Wear them up some stairs. Wear them a lot and for longer periods each time. TRAIN your feet and break the shoes in. You’ll at least get used to walking in them, and you can pinpoint the areas that cause blisters or pinching.
-Use band-aids or adhesive craft foam to cover the areas inside the shoe that pinch you or cause blisters.
-Gel insoles! (If they dont fit, cut em.) ALSO FOOT PETALS. So awesome.
-If your feet hurt during the con. Sit down. Sit for awhile or roll your ankle around. BUT NEVER. NEVER take your shoes off if you intend to keep wearing them. As soon as the shoes are off your feet will swell. And swollen feet are bigger than regular feet — so they are gonna hurt EVEN WORSE once they go back in the shoe. Resist the temptation.
-Cut your day in half. When I know that I’m wearing a costume with a six inch heel, I plan accordingly. I show up the the con late if possible, and leave early. Get your fill of showing off the costume, take some pictures. And then change. It’s okay to call it quits and change, you may be disappointed in not wearing it for longer or missing out in seeing people or getting more photos — but its not worth the pain you may feel the day after.
-Treat your feet! Especially if you need to wear heels in tomorrow’s cosplay too!! Once you get back home/or to your hotel, soak your feet in the bath with warm water first, then cold water. The warm water will relax your muscles. And the cold water after will constrain them and get them ready for the same pain again tomorrow.
I don't know if you two would feel comfortable answering this but what were you two like in high school? Did you do well? Did you know what you wanted to do career-wise or even think about becoming cosplayers? What would you tell your younger selves?
Sheila: I’ve always been a determined girl. I think I was just set on doing other things than being stuck in my hometown. In middle school I was determined to be an artist of some sort and in high school I worked on graduating a year early and picking out a college for concept design for video games. I was super focused on doing that I really didn’t do much else. Cosplay was never something I looked at like it was an option for a lifestyle and I really didn’t start getting into it until my last year of high school. It was during college that cosplay made me realize that I like working with fabric and clothes more than drawing concepts for games. Without cosplay I wouldn’t be in LA working as a costume assistant for the film industry — so there’s that.
I think though, if I had to tell my younger self anything it would be to take more social risks. Being brave academically and in the long run is fine — but point that bravery to your social life too. I was such a coward with people. And I was so bottled up and angry when I was young. Cosplay taught me more than just costuming but, how to be accepting and outgoing with others. There are a lot of people in high school I wish I had been braver with.
Sylar: Well that certainly takes me back xD. Its sometimes not easy to go back and dwell on what I was like in highschool. I did ok grade wise. sometimes good, sometimes bad. On the whole, I wasn’t very. .. concerned with school or my future, which I suppose was a bad thing and lead to a lot of the trouble I got into.
As far as how I was as a person, I wasn’t that great. Sure I was personable, high energy me, but I lacked tact, I wasn’t super polite, and when it came to dating, I was a super rude boy. On the whole, I wasn’t really the best person back in high school, due to the naivety and craziness that comes with being a teenage boy raised in today’s world. ^^;; I would tell my younger self “You’re not as hot as you think you are. Dont be rude, and calm down”
Hello! This is a super important question..I have a con in two weeks, and I'm going as Nebula. However, how would I do the whole bald look? I'm obviously not going to shave my hair XD But can I paint/use make up on a bald cap? If so...what should I use??
