Maybe you got this already but, the lead writer for Dragon Age used a picture of Sylar in his Male Morrigan cosplay as reference.
Yes! We were thrilled when he did so!!
We actually know David pretty well. We met him a couple years ago at the Bioware base when we entered the Bioware cosplay competition at SDCC! We’ve since seen him a few times at PAX and NYCC, so we laughed a little when he posted Sylar’s morrigan.
How did you get a job with cirque and what credentials did you have to use? I'm not asking you to expose anything personal, just what education did you need to get the job or something, if that makes sense. I am interested in the idea, as an option of sorts :/
I applied after finding the position on indeed under ‘wardrobe!’
The credentials were, you must have some experience with handling costumes and you MUST know how to hand. Gotta know the basics of stitching and its not hard to learn. Also, they were looking for someone who had experience with theatre or live entertainment, because its a fast paced environment and you gotta learn how to adapt and work well under pressure.
If a russian man runs over to you a minute before his act and tells you his zipper is broken, you gotta be able to whip out a paper clip and work magic without sweating about it.
sheila whats it like working for cirque? what do you do?
Its sick as fuck, yo!
Like I said before, I can’t talk much about it. I’m not sure how much I can say, and I’d rather not cross any lines. It’s amazing, a dream come true though. And every moment is really cool and unreal.
I’m a wardrobe assistant. So my job is repair and maintenance. I sew up holes, repair zippers, replace rhinestones and crystals, paint shoes, fix masks, and so on. I also run ques for the show. Quick changes back stage and helping performers in and out of their costumes, etc. Making sure so-and-so’s shoes get put back in their wardrobe after their preformance….
Hi:3. I have really oily skin and make makeup eds up sliding or caking up on me. Can you recomend me some affordable products that can help me avoide the makeup disaster. Thank you :D
First off, start checking the labels on your makeup. Especially for foundation and concealer. Stop using oil based products. This will make your problem worse. Try using lightweight foundations and powders, that are wax or water based.
Also, cleansing your face and moisturizing BEFORE you put on makeup should help loads.
And lastly, they do sell wipes that soak up oil off your face an help prevent it f your in a pinch
And lastly lastly, don’t ever ever ever sleep with makeup on. THATS TO EVERYONE. So bad for you, stop it.
Sheila/Sylar: What video games are you excited for? I'm pretty curious about ESO. (Also, Sylar: How did you even get to gold in League? Inb4 selling your soul. I'm still in provisionals and I'm feeling like I'm about to get bronze if I even so try a few more matches! ; ; )
As far as coming games go, there aren’t really that many coming out right away. We Beta tested ESO, and its pretty shnazzy. Not sure about the price they’ve set it for, but we’ll see. Sylar has been playing the Elder Scrolls since Dagerfall, so he, at least, will likely play the absolute shit out of it.
As far as coming games, Only sylar is here to answer the question.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2
Dragon Age: Inquisition
Also, sylar has been playing and replaying Beyond Two Souls NONFUGGIN STOP.
Sylar: I'm in college right now, and I want to be an actor, either in voice, theater, or movies/tv. My college has a theater major and a musical theater major, do you know if either of those good to have if I want to do things other than just the theater?
Well all of the world’s greatest, most renown, and most accomplished actors with the largest bodies of work often have a theatre background. I personally think a theatre background, or at least some theatrical training, helps a ton with some of the aspects of performing, regardless of whether it is voice, film, motion capture, anything.
Another thing, si that I don’t believe any degree is going to affect your ability to get an acting job, so train in the things that interest you, because the training, not the degree itself, is what is going to help you get that dream acting job.
I swear, I squealed when I saw that you guys are going to cosplay Varrick and Zhu-Li. And now you got me wondering... Do you ship those two? And will we have the right to some awesome shippy pics like you did with Tahno and Korra?
We do indeed ship them, at least professionally. As far as intimately or emotionally, we’re not sure if they would be or not. Part of us says yes, part of us says no. Either way, they are an inseparable duo and YES we will do some shippy pics winkwonk.
Hey there Sheila! I was wondering if you might know of any warm jackets similar to your sexy one that I could get sometime before Christmas? I've been shopping around but have had no luck so far on the internet and otherwise so I thought I'd ask you. I'd like to find something relatively long but not too warm or ostentatious so that I can't wear it inside all day if I have to. Is there such a thing? Thanks, and happy belated Thanksgiving!
Does it ever make you sad to give away old cosplays or props that you worked hard to make or had fun in?
It’s kind of sad, yeah. Not so much because of the hard work — its because of the MEMORIES we’ve had in said costumes — or our sentimentality to that character and what they mean to us.
There are some costumes we won’t give away because of the memories we have of it and such.
But we just have SO MANY and we plan on making SO MANY MORE that its kinda okay because we know there are more characters and more memories to come.
ANNNDDDD It feels really, really good to give away costumes or sell them to people I know will have just as much fun, who love the character just as much, and will are excited to take care of it and make memories of their own.
can you pLEASE REVEAL some tips or anything about how you made the white parts of Nilin's memory remixer and her actual remixer and how the EFF YOU MADE HER PANTS BECAUSE IVE WANTED TO COSPLAY HER SO BADLY BUT THEM PANTS I DONT EVEN- (ok so pretty much no clue how to go about making her cosplay minus the shirt and upper part of the pants) thank you so much for reading sorry for the long ask ;w;
Send me an email anon. At email@example.com and I will tell you everything and or just give your my nilin costume
Asks Sylar a question sure! How's your classes at AAU? I'm in Illustration and can't wait to go Campus currently online =D
Its a great school in a beautiful city. I enjoy the people, the classes are accessible and useful, at least in the acting Major. Its really the most gorgeous place I could have asked to go to school, given that I dislike Arizona’s climate and scenery so much. ^^
Not knocking Arizona, its a great place, but I simply love the big city and the cool weather ^^
my boyfriend came clean to me and told me he was bi.... I don't know how I feel about it or how I should react since I'm pretty religious. But Shiela, what would you do if Sylar came out to be bi? Your advice would really help me in this tight spot thank you
I would do nothing. It doesn’t matter who Sylar ‘can’ be attracted to. He’s in a relationship with me.
Him being bi doesn’t make him more promiscuous. It just means he recognizes the sexual attractiveness of both genders.
If he tries anything with EITHER gender whilst dating me, he’d be in the same amount of trouble.
Your boyfriend told you he was bi— so what? He’s still YOUR boyfriend. How does it actually change anything in your relationship to each other?
