Sakura Matsuri 2012 Brooklyn :Sunday

I don’t really do much of these life post because I usually see it as boring and
not for only my life but mostly of others as well; unless its drastic adventures or maybe even artist related.
Im going to give it a go 83
Not too far from where we live though it is weird we hardly go out around our area. 
We usually travel far off like to Coney Island or all the way to Manhattan.

Side note: Im going to the Brooklyn museum in a few weeks cause the last time I went was very very young, think around three. I told my Pa and ma and they said it is a great idea we all should go next time.
Yes I am a family person and very thankful for it. My BF told me he was jealous of it and it never occurred to me cause its normal for thou. I grew up with a tight family (in your home, cousins and aunts/uncles what have you is not the family I’m talking of), and friends that join them in the future and ill never change it for the world. I savor the moments cause I am very thankful for it every single day. 
Moving on, I am also thinking of going to that huge library.
 Is that nerdy? Wanting to travel to a library like its an event? Or is it just weird? 
Yeah my little not so little only brother.
He and his friends can pull off some weird poses for pictures.
Now for once I’m not holding the camera XD and as you can see my mother don’t know how to crop and zoom, I seem so far off here. Also the reason I have that face is because she was taking so long so I didn’t know what to do. I was in that (are you finish) faze 
My brothers new girl…..um….I told him black people need to face the light because it is their friend in photography. I have no clue what this is, he’s too dramatic but it works. Looks like he is praying

Im not sure if kashawn knew what planking was or not, he just did it.

Geo was going to do something here while he was planking but I forgot what.
K got up super fast.

I didn’t photo paint my face in these photos just changed the lighting.

This was not a bad pose actually.
I couldn’t see the “real” quality of the photos on my cameras small screen. So I erased most of the pictures I took and though most of these pictures was a bust. But now looking through all of them they are and were amazing. 
I love this camera!

Here is the thing. I never if ever show my parents in photos. They don’t go on the internet as well as me so they should keep their privacy.

I was chasing this butterfly everywhere trying to get a picture and the details this camera captured was…no IS amazing. The zoom is perfect. Too bad most of the photos I took mistakenly got erased >C.
Today made me fall more in love with Alice two all over again. She is a FZ100 Lumix Panasonic. 
About 500$. The first one I got button didn’t work so I got a new refurbished one.
I protect her with my life now >.<
Im thinking of taking her with me to NYC again.

Geo is a camera hog, but he’s good with it
Now why would you come to a garden with those shoes “And” with a child.
I mean, grass, dirt and water? And don’t forget you have to jump in certain places to get the good stuff and what if the child starts running in the play area or even the pond.
Later on she changes her shoes haha. 
Idk family time in a garden I don’t think its necessary, well for me.

 This is one of my favorite pictures.
I love her hair, outfit, her electric blue mohawk is brilliant and she became very attractive in my eyes.
I would date her and her coloring abilities.

Told you he’s good for the camera

I don’t know what happened here
This is the best picture ever. 
This is now my wallpaper and I’m patting Alice two on the back for this one.
The bees was flying and it didn’t give me that harsh blur. It gave me that powder soft blur yet you still see details
See! Wallpaper screenshot.
Anyway, I’m liking the new blogspot Editing. The editing is easier especially with pictures, you can load all in one instead of 5 by 5. I just wished they would load in order but that is okay. 
So convention pictures won’t be a hassle next time (Im going to anime north so this is good news)
I won’t be too lazy with these kinds of post anymore and its kind of fun to do now.
*Happy Spring!*
Watch me edit this =-=

How to spot obvious Photoshopping

So here is my photoshopping post and for the subject ill be using the well known “Dakota Rose” and myself. Since she is so infamous, rude and also don’t like opinions that don’t turn up her glory (and you know how I butt hurt about that) I don’t really feel bad about it. And it was mentioned on my blog how everyone is turning her out or something (showing the truth). Yay I’m not alone on this so without further ado

STOP!
I advice you for if you don’t like for anyone to be called out, turned out or shown out the door ill put a stop like above before the posting, there will be a ……
………GO!
after the posting and you can then proceed after. It is known for people with truth to get the most hate (killing the messenger). To save you and myself time follow this rule. If you don’t follow it and proceed with your ignorance or lack of proof and theroy , I give myself the right to sin my soul and bash you out if needed to calm my frustration and giving me the feeling of revival to my wasted time.

Now are you ready.
Here you go, enjoy.
Always forget to put these Disclaimer: I don’t hate photoshoppers I just don’t like the lies. Whats so hard about saying yes I photoshop (though the over photoshop okay i don’t like that either but its not all about what I feel it is what you can get out of this post). I do believe it should not belong in ads for the purpose of coverage. If I want your foundation or mascara show me the real results. Not the fake model who’s filing in the blanks. Thank goodness gurus exist.

Let me show you the process and how easy it is nowadays to edit your pictures with free photoshop and quick moves. Come on people, it is more than easy to get photoshop off the net and get it free. I won’t give you links or condone it but ill tell yah this it is easy. There is the internet, google is your best friend yet worst enemy.

The normal
Here is one of the subjects, the picture ill be using on my photoshop is me. Lets make something out of it and ill tell you how to spot PHOTOSHOP on the way….or after
HEYYY Liquid!
Here is liquify the tools of all tools when it comes to face and body editing. This is what the window looks like.
See the bulge tool?Its highlighted .
What have changed?
Notice how the eyes still look round?
Heres a tip: how many people you have seen or known with diamond eyes compared to almond eyes. I have almond eyes btw and lashes kind of make it diamond but not to this extreme.
The best tip: The bottom lid is parallel to the top bulge like my eyes are begging to escape.
Look in the mirror and open your eyes WIDE. How much do your bottom lid move compared to your top?Most likely hardly ever. HEY maybe there are talented people out there or lucky ones and lets not forget we are all different also I’m not a face specialist but this compared with others I’m mentioning later in post, it is almost impossible to have all at once or combined.

Do you see it? Look again even I had trouble finding what the hell was photoshopped after I saved this photo. Why do I have two pictures of the eyes being edited?

Its the nose
There is the opposite of the bulge tool in the options of liquify.
Small tip: The pixels are stretched. The reason for this being a small tip is for the reason of the editing done later where you can’t spot a pixel for your life. Everything is smudged.

THIS IS MY FAVE TO SPOT
The chin edits (didn’t make you guess this time even though its not too obvious)
Yes my favorite. I make it a challenge for me to spot new phtoshopping, its like a chase for Sherlock Holmes. A new mystery.
To tell you the truth I don’t see any appeal to the chin thing and haven’t seen a real person with that kind of chin. Long yes, pointy maybe , both hardly…that can be a tip but here is a better one…
Bigger tip: Inconsistency. They hardly ever keep it when editing massive amounts of photos. Some chins are long , some shorter than that, some don’t seem right and others aren’t even there.
Another tip: Don’t want anything around their chin. Like hands or Jazz hand fingers and heres why; its harder to edit the chin when something is in the way like a finger or lollipop
Here is where the pixels disappear.

Here is where I start photoshopping with my own pictures (I don’t like liquify, though for hair editing I don’t mind cause like in reality you can move around you hair…..your face, not so much). I don’t use the tools usually used which is the “blur” tool. Its good for smaller things like pimples but for bigger things like the face it looks OverDone and fake to me. I paint….well cause I’m a digital painter and for me that is the way to photoshop makeup. Hear this, there is no way in hell makeup will make a blur on your face.
Still I as well as many may have to change our ways cause all in all people love the blur tool on photos, and not only the photoshopper but the people who admire the photos. They think its perfect and rather pictures to be blurred than real.
But to me when you go way too far its just tatseless.
Whats to see other than the blur. You can’t go out and show your face now thinking anyone would recognize you. I didn’t even do the over blurring in this demonstration because I just don’t like that look. Its trying way too hard in a sense.
Tip: When your face have the shadow of a glass of milk (which is hardly any shadow and muddy looking) its most likely PShopped. Look at the shadows of your face when in the sunlight or ambient light. Lighting don’t work that way. When over blurring it gives the float face where it looks like your face is copied and pasted over the other especially when the body don’t match. Look for highlights if there is none along with no harsh shadow then its most likely blurred (or extreme light but we are talking of a mix of PShoping)
Tip 2: No sharp corners to be found except your hair and maybe lashes
Only ru paul is allowed haha. It looks like he obviously does this.
(cause later in the show you see him without it. Only in drag he has this effect making it a character in itself)
Tip 3: You have no nose?
Tip 4: Pores and bumps exist. Here is what real skin looks like
+Click link for huge picture+
Im sure almost every dark skinned girl ( or any skinned girl but on darker skin its more apparent) have this up close, or at-least I do. Its called skin.
Though it looks blurred , you can still see the patterns on the skin.
Even a smaller picture and you can the realness in the lighting.
The forehead with the highlight you see smaller dents.
Look at my first picture here in the nose area where there is highlight. Even though I photoshop the picture i don’t really edit them to the extreme. That may change.
The sharpen (on one side though)
Don’t have to explain much here, you just sharper your lashes or your blur of the eyes to make it more realistic debunking the blur effect a little. But –
Tip: can’t fix the glass of milk or the cut out and paste “face” effect. Like This
You can see every strand of her hair yet she has milk face
and this
See how muddy her highlights look?
Strands of hair seen, detail in flower seen face don’t match these detailes
….milk faced
And omg this is the ultimates of milk face, I just can’t take it.
Im lactose intolerant when seeing these of course another pet peeve.
Its an art thing I swear, my hands tingle looking at this.
wig detailed
jewelry detailed
lace detailed
face Milked
the shadow on her clothes have more definition.
I just sharpened both sids of the face here.

The overlay
Umm…I rather to lighten the other way.
This is just a copy of the picture, make the top “screen” layered and you get this.
To get the ru paul angel effect you glassian blur the top picture a bit and take down the opacity.

Levels are better
cmd+l gives you the levels (on a mac)
No tips on these its just lighting here nothing to see.
Done!
How do I look?
Not bad for a fast edit. Creepy but acceptable
STOP!!
Hey stop!!
Dakota rose
If you haven’t seen it look at the other well known photoshooping of acceptance “Komi Xi”
Ill be using allot of links here (cause people have said it better)
I called Komi a character because basically I never really seen her claiming to be real or seen her fighting for her fake life on the net…well maybe its because she’s foreign plain and simple. But this is different this one is not a character this is a girl believing in her lies or making others try to believe in it to seem perfect.
believe it or not this is her
and these
And we are saying this is her now?
I mean hint: NO…ONES…EYES ARE LIKE THAT. The hell would the eye sockets of the skull would appear to even look like. Have you not seen CSI? Where they can make a image just from a skull, that is real people. Also another hint: She has milk face and the light is coming from the top (look at the shoulders, and the top of her head = light source) Which means no harsh light on the face BUT: there is also a trick to that. You can reflect light to your face with a reflector….dont explain the eyes which is obviously PShopped. And seeming she is an addict at photoshopping everything she won’t stop there.
Do I have to really go further on this? Really?
No Really? Sigh okay ill try.
Let me get this straight.
You can see the eye enlargement here?
This is mostly circle lens but look closer
…her lips change as well, her nose is turned down her chin is more pointed.
Let me tell you about after effects
look at this amazing tutorial from a novice
You know what , here is where I stop about this girl. Its too obvious too obvious. So much that I have to say it twice. Look for the resources below and it will tell you so much more about the girl and not only about looks but her attitude as well. And let me give you a hint.
hint: Her attitudes stinks
Rant over.

GO!!
The haze on Jennifer’s face kills me every time.
Now they are getting away with it in commercials for foundation.
Ever seen those mascara commercials where they wear FALSE LASHES? Yeah, this is just as bad. How the hell do you know its working for the model when you over blur it or do not ever show their real lashes.
Look for the god haze on those commercials.
I seen older commercials and it was hardly that way.
This I think recently happened.

now for me to edit plenty times when this is posted even though I have edited this post 3 times before hand.

Fast post: I think I’m going to be mainly ulzzang

Ello homo sapiens. This is just an update kind of post, there is a post about photoshopping in my

Edits for the next post….

SEE.
Using myself and some others as the subjects…..Not sure if I should use dakota rose cause of maybe the “copy rights”. I heard of her and her families antics on the internet taking down things that makes her look bad and tell truth. Still Every one should know who she is and it would be easy to do an example of photoshop edits with her face. Oh well who knows, I may.

(disclaimer: sorry if this was confusing but this is more of a style switch, ill still be doing the same thing just with more other looks that “non gyarus” can do or even just normal girls with a hint of I guess asian culture? I don’t know what to call it but I hope you get my confusing disclaimer I’m so bad at this haha)
Well back to topic I think ulzzang is going to be one of my main style thingy. One its easy as hell to do just try to look pretty. Two more people can associate with it and have more things in common and three more makeup things I can do and don’t have to worry much about outfits. Its more of a natural life with makeup and don’t need a community…..not like gyaru and udoli don’t have one….basically yes they don’t really have a strong hold anymore. They, I think will be my fun projects.

Eoljjang (Korean: 얼짱), also spelled as Ulzzang or Uljjang (Korean pronunciation: [ʌl.tɕ͈äŋ]), is a popular South Korean term literally meaning “best face” or “good-looking”

It will get me into more natural *yet still different* makeup as well so I can make videos for everyone instead of cosplayers and gyarus/udoli (even though I’ve been slacking in udoli.) Though there are plenty natural makeup tips online so it will still be a bit separated with gyaru makeup tricks. I think I should bring my art more into make up as well so it will be much more better for me since I’m still in the end working on my art.

Will have circle lens and still will take an adventure in foreign products, just I’m not feeling gyaru as much or seen it and I just started seriously this year. The black gyaru community is the best so far and that is one of the only things holding me and would keep me doing more makeup experiments and clothing ones as well. lhouraii to, I’m going to start doing extreme one like that when I feel to.

Oh and about that last experiment , since it was so easily done gyaru not being too much of a challenge which is kind of why I started is part of this decision.
And what is this? Don’t worry I think its amusing though Way amusing than funny. Guess no one like cam whoring. But if so why click the link, and the link is only linked out only and this was posted 2 places here and a group. Why not post your opinion when I am the most opened minded you can find.
This is I think is the first case of jealousy and I never really pulled out that word for myself cause I know after all there is nothing to be jealous of when it comes to speaking about me. Again its my fault for leaving ratings up, but never really had the thought you know? Its a bit private and I have stated in the title and at the beginning the whoring will proceed. So why click the play haha.
I think all girls should try a whore out video. I felt uncomfortable and don’t like looking at it , but then I realized that it effected me and for the stupidest reason. I have to stop that there are better things to worry about this isn’t hurting anyone and this shouldn’t be on that list to worry about. I recommend it, you will look stupid but I think its better to know your being stupid than not knowing ❤
Any who I don’t think much will change anything much here or anywhere just mostly my mindset

That Fast Gyaru Tiny Makeup Tutorial

I posted the vid called “My first camWhore” in the group on Facebook here it is
You can only see it through link
It was awkward but as I go on I have to remember to be a little more comfortable with myself.
So in the vid and on this particular day I decided to get up and do makeup. No foundation, no base just did my eye makeup and splashed on some high pigmented cream gloss. Here is the process.
Sloppy but fast and decent I think I should say. And I do agree it looks good with and without the circle lens so yeah I guess I can do gyaru makeup with no lens on. Still love to have color though, just glad its not much of a necessity.
