I've been following a lovely makeup artist called Promise Tamang Phan and today on her facebook page she posted this AMAZING DIY CRAYON LIPSTICK tutorial. The notion of it sounds so crazy but the results can be AWESOME for cosplaying those characters in wacky colors. So, if you're interested, hit the link and check it out!
Here's an impromptu interview from Almacon 2014!
I have always been partial to Majora's Mask and its intense themes. The theory that Young Link is actually in the grieving process throughout Majora's Mask and becomes the Hero's Shade in Twilight Princess makes total sense to me. Want to know more about the theory?

As a cosplayer, sometimes it is hard to open up to others about your hobby, especially if they are unfamiliar with the cosplaying world.
The documentary, Cosplay! Crafting a Secret Identity, is an amazing film delving into the world of cosplay and cosplayers, including some of the more famous ones like Yaya Han. If you ever wondered what it was like to be a cosplayer or wanted to know how much these amazing people put into this passionate hobby, this film is for you.
So enjoy this film and find out what it's like to live your fantasies as a cosplayer!
Personally, this video actually makes me cry. This is what makes me happy and this is where I want my life to be. If you don't get or like cosplay, that's fine. Office work and professional dress aren't my thing. I'll suck it up and spend this next semester getting my silly degree that won't make me half as happy as cosplaying will. But don't be surprised if I never get a "real job" and you find me doing this full time.
We popped up in at least two videos this year! =D
One video is a walk-through Artist Alley, which we were so fortunate to have the chance to do!!!

Being called the Greatest Zelda Fan Film Ever, "Escape" is a beautiful, sad story of a little girl and her courage. Not your typical fan film, but definitely a must watch.
**Warning - There is some strong language and content.**

Going through my files and found an old tutorial (remember when I announced it?) that I never posted. It's how to create the Hyrulian Soldier/Castle Guard Helmet! So here it is! Enjoy!

Recycled Fairy Costume!
Ever wonder what to do with your old Prom dresses? Why not reuse them as a fairy dress?! ;)
~ A How-To! ~
1. Grab your old prom dress.
2. Make any modifications to the dress itself. (I lifted the front of my skirt up by safty-pinning two pink ribbons as skirt lifts on each hip.) Feel free to add tulle, flowers, glitter, or any other Fairy-esque goodness!
3. Find/buy/make a pair of matching fairy wings. Lots of Dollar Stores have them in the toy selection, or find a nice, inexpensive pair right after the end of the Halloween Season in the clearance section! ;) Or you can follow my favorite crafters, the Threadbangers, in their tutorial to make your own pair! http://youtu.be/5z20jIu7XJk
4. Makeup and Hair! Have fun with it!
Tah-dah! You just made yourself a thrifty, recycled fairy costume!

Hello everyone! I'm just a little girl with a little thread, and a LOT of hair! I love making cosplays and going to my local conventions (or any reason to go out in public with a costume!)
