Does anyone know where I could find inexpensive red boots for my Sailor Moon cosplay? I’m going to anime midwest in a little over a month and I’d rather not wear flip flops with my costume again xD
I always suggest a second hand or thrift store shop like Salvation Army or Community Aid. It’s pretty easy in off seasons to find boots that you can spray paint and put white ribbon on the edge to make into SM boots. : ) Best of luck!
Fucking dreams came true. Found this thing a while back, but it was unfinished so I didn’t pay much attention to it. Now its open and I’m pissing myself. Its a fucking Pokemon MMO. Its like the Pokemon world every kid dreamed of, being able to be a fucking trainer alongside your friends, literally. No stupid cables, no only seeing each other in certain places, but now you can play together in the same world. Fuck. There are no words to describe what my younger self is feeling. Already got Alex, Tucker, and Jordan to play. Who’s fucking next?

Fuck having a life.
trying this out now omg
There’s another great pokemon MMO in the works, by a group of my really close friends! Called pokengine!! : ) I wonder if they’ve played this one?
No no no you misunderstood- I ADORE IT. Another is one of my fave animes (however violent and bloody it is). I’m just saying that I’m noticing a pattern with animes lately. HAHAHA and I start adoring certain characters and then they die and it’s like NOOOOOOO
Snow White from Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs is strong. She is feminists favorite punching bag, right after Aurora but at least every once in awhile someone will come to Aurora’s defense. Snow (and Cinderella frankly) are seen as what is wrong with the Disney princesses. Snow likes cute animals, cooking, cleaning, and a useless prince. She befriends seven strange men who end up saving her in the end. Dude, the prince just comes and kisses her. She is stereotypically feminine. She doesn’t go fight for her country. She doesn’t prevent a war from breaking out. Girl is nice to every single person she meets, even the woman who tried to kill her. She felt bad that she scared the animals when they found her crying in the woods. She is kind hearted. She wants to help everyone she meets. Her looking out for others is what got her killed.
All of that does not make her weak. Sure, she is a bit naive but she lived a rather sheltered life. The queen had her locked away doing chores all day. When she found out the queen wanted her killed, instead of standing in the field looking at the huntsman, she fucking ran. She ran away to protect herself. She left an abusive home (she lived with the queen in her castle). When she met the dwarfs, she bargained with them so they wouldn’t kick her out. She ran that house. She put the dwarves and animals to work. She was very sweet but she was also the head bitch in charge. Even Grumpy didn’t try to backtalk her.
The fact she needed the dwarfs and animals to save her doesn’t make her weak. Saving yourself is more than just killing the enemy. It is about surviving, which Snow White did. She may not know how to throw a punch, shoot an arrow, or save her country; but that doesn’t make her weak. Not every woman can defeat their demons/enemies on their own. Some of them need help from their friends, which the dwarfs and animals were to Snow, to defeat their enemy and that doesn’t make them weak.
Also, girls who prefer Snow White to Merida are not weak or “too girly.” There is no such thing as being “too girly.” Not all girls are going to relate to Merida and that is okay. Not all girls are going to like Snow White. Some girls like both characters. There is nothing wrong with girls liking the classic Disney princesses. There is nothing wrong with girls preferring the newer princesses. What is a problem is when people try to deem what princesses are “good” or “bad.”

These are gorgeous!
*screeches* YES YE SOMFG YESSSSS PLEASE?! I can talk gibberish at you, and you can talk gibberish back. We need to get a Chamber cosplayer OMFG- He can just sit there and translate for everyone . OMFG YES PLEASE I’m going to make Amy my competition piece for the Hall Cosplay- : ) So when the full schedule comes out as to what day that is, that’s probably the day I’ll wear it. If time gets pushed back and I can’t finish Yui, I’m just gonna bring Punz and Amy. Chances are… I’m going to love Amy so much I’ll never taker her off. HAhAH OFMG that sounds so awkward and odd when I reread this.
ahhhhh that sounds so great! You’re going to make a really great Amy omg I can’t wait to see it! and yessss if there’s a Chamber cosplayer there I might just collapse because Chamber is the best~ My only thing about the schedule is that if I do manage to get into Otaku Idol (unlikely but I’m hopeful) I’ll have to be a girl that day so I can breathe. It should be fine though~
To be honest, my boyfriend is great with electronics. We’re both huge Gargantia fans, so we’re thinking for Otakon 2014 we might do like, a GROUP cosplay, and actually make a Ledo suit that has Chamber voices and lights programed into it. XD because let’s face it, CHAMBER IS FANTASTIC.
ooooohhhhhhhhh my god that sounds amazing fesdijkesfd I’m going to see if I can somehow get my suit to light up, I don’t know how it’ll work with my likely to be limited budget and lack of experience with that kind of thing though so I’m not sure yet ^^ We should see if there are any other Gargantia cosplayers going, maybe we could do a big meetup or something~
You could try EL wire. It’s not that expensive and they sell “premade kits” for beginners on etsy. : ) You can hook the wires up to a battery pack with a switch, so you can pick and choose how to use the lights. And in terms of sound- a simple recorder (or maybe an ipod hooked up to a speaker?) could be easily made. You could have a friend hold it and when you ask questions, have them click it, you know? So it’d be like you’re talking to Chamber through your “headset”. XD ANDYES we need to gather everyone gosh I am SO EXCITED.
Today, Justin smirked and asked me why I didn’t do this version. I play punched him in the arm. I need to work out more before I do this.
Admittedly- I searched everywhere for a panty shot of Amy- NOT TO BE A PERV, but because you don’t really get to see what she wears under her skirt in the anime, and I can’t figure it out for my cosplay. This fan image is one of the few I’ve seen- and HECK NO I am not going to be panty shot fan service.
So I’m thinking I might make a pair of shorts- in order to make the skirt she wears into a skort?
