Anime eyes, Outfits, Fro and Leather/ While I was gone

 So I made a quick tutorial only because I wanted to see how fast I can do it and if I can achieve that then I can make more video than ever…..I can. I really don’t mind doing more of these, it is practice for my normal makeup and it keeps more content coming in. lets see if Ill stick to it. 

of course I phtoshopped I am suppose to look like an anime character. I didn’t photoshop the eyes now that wouldn’t make any sense since this is a tutorial.

My hair is actually a tiny bit bigger than this now but its getting to that badu status.
It was surprisingly soft.
I got my pleather shorts for the summer but decided to wear it for the first “feeling” of spring, meaning it felt like spring but wasn’t the first day of spring. 
Same for the jacket and tights

I made new chokers, the lock-it is not for sale yet

but I made 2 more of these to sell and customize 
Maybe one day I can get enough to make harnesses for others.

I did an interview with another product im not sure ill be selling. Spike horns linked with chains.

and my boyfriend teased me with this iphone case that lights up…OMG

I did some drawing

But havent figured out what to do with it yet…..life of an artist.
So nothing much for the last two weeks except the pillow fight.

Asian makeup review Suki- Sayoko Ozaki- Convention

It is only fair to have a compared picture that is also photoshop. The difference is I can go as far as Sayoko’s picture when it comes to shopping, its just I feel weird doing it; as I always do.

Here is how it came to me, love the packaging I have no clue why it is just hard plastic.

Here is the back of the packaging, I have palette #2 and I plan to get the blue one as well which I think is pallete #1; there is a green one as well. I Just wanted the natural one for once
To my surprise it came with a mirror, which is sweet and perfect for traveling.

The diferene from my american brand eyeshadow is it is smooth smooth smooth. Even the black that seems to have glitter is smooth. Its almost like a very fine powder like powdered sugar.
All is shimmery except on the brownish black and on dark skin it looks wonderful, thank allah its not frosty.
You know how the japanese put on thier eyeshadow like a gradiant because they are trying to achive the fake eye crease or what I think is since most of the shadow wont be seen without closing your eyes they will gradiant up to get to the part of the eyeshadow that will be shown when the eyes is open. They also dont use brushes that much (the sponge is whats used) and I used my brushes for this look. 
It took me awhile to get this gradient since im so used to doing it the western way and let me tell you this pallete is great for dark skin, I am surprised.

Another asian makeup product I bought, maybe I should review this cutie too. 
Its a lip balm. (not wearing it in these photos, im wearing one of the revlon lip butters. Swatches on past post)

Well thats all. 
Im back on track…..Oh also 
My shop is kind of open. It is on its test run
Only 3 products so far and while at the convention everyone though it was chokers and most wanted me to make chokers. I guess im making chokers in the future as well

okay im an artist im not a seamstress, im not too proud of this so im buying a corset and paint a design on that for the boston con. Oh also made that choker waist thingy. It attach to a chain on the bottom.

okay I love you bye bye

I love this wig and its color.
It does go well with my skin color and not too overbearing I guess I can say.
It is like training wheels to get into other blonde colors in a way
because its not too much blonde. I just dont want to buy something blonde
and it comes out to not fit my skin tone.
This is why I buy and wear colored wigs all the time instead of real color tones
blue and green are the ones that fits me best.


Anyway to the review
Color- The color could be a little more duller for the blonde side but it is hard to fit every ones needs, so Ill give a perfect. My skin tone is 410 Cappachino in “Revlons Color Stay” liquid foundation
4.8/5

Shape- Best shape is the bangs, the dome is a bit wear but adjusting your bangs (downwards) will tone out the top, yet since I have a small forehead and it is hard to pull down to the bangs to wear I want without blinding myself. Its not the wigs fault.
5/5

Texture- Soft yet sheds in the beginning (hopefully only in the beginning), other than the shedding, it tangles when held back.
4.5/5

So now for pictures in the natural sunlight

I fell i love with it. It is now that wig ill wear almost everywhere…
till I get a collection of more of these wigs

My cosplay "Chun li"


So I am testing out my cosplay and are not sure if finished yet
but it can be worn out as cosplay anyway.
I’m in Canada for a really big convention, so surly might be swarmed like last time.
This is the secound time on a official costume play, last was yuna. And the reason I say this is because it is the secound time I have used a sewing machine and my own design combined with the original cosplay design.
Ill never do a exact cosplay unless I look like the character or it fits my persona. In summary I do alternatives because usually i’m so much different from the character and in effect it fits me perfectly every time. As a black cosplayer you have to change things to fit you.

Example I would never wear a yellow wig…BUT ill wear a blond-ish yellow wig that would fit my skin tone and with this rule youll be the best character and still be called that character. I got comments on how I fit chunli well. Well with this rule…OF COURSE!
I want to do a tutorial on cosplay for the opposites.

I have done a video on the makeup application.
It was more of a practice though to warn you.

In this video I video whore the cosplay
I am a natural cam whore…..only alone though
oops a string

This was so much fun.
For an estimate: about 140$
Time: 5 days a week 4 hrs a day started around spring maybe march.
everything down to the painting of the details that is in gold, the buns of flowers, the chain of gems, the bottom and top was done by me
white shirt= forever 21
fall tights= eBay
laced up sneakers = eBay
cheerleader bloomers = Internet
spikes = Halloween shop

Yuna cosplay

The convention was brilliant the photo shoot was a success for us novice photographers and my 100 dollar camera. I have to say we have to do this every year and after 3 years we should do commissions. I hope to do of more weapons if I get good at it along with costumes. My father is awesome with tools and wood and I think learning more from him will not only be bonding and improvement on my cosplay, but also will help later in life.We went for all 3 days but took the hotel Tuesday. I will bring up a video hopefully soon. My room was redone and I have no time as of now cause of rearranging and throwing away allot of clothes and books. Ill take a picture of when its finished soon. So since ill bring in a video of the shoot and the events before cosplay I will not speak of it now. But I have to say THE NEW YORKER HOTEL!!! 2 BATHROOMS!!!. Enough is said about that.

At the convention I have meet one of my most favorite artist on DA.She is what I look up too and would continue to. So charming and…. well, looks like spazs mom. Adorable, and I…. well tom tom my boy friend granted and spoiled me along with buying her 2 mangas and art book which she have signed. She as a whole is my reference and Ill be like her one day. Also! I meet one of my favorite cosplayers YAYA! It was such a perfect weekend for me I cant even say. Two of my favorites in different categories. Now. If I have meet jesus it would of been complete. WAIT I have, on the street on our way to the New Yorker hotel. I was saved haha. He has literally saved some drunk guy, well not saved but help him in companionship. It was adorable.

Well that is all I have for this blog. Now back to my room and the editing of my cosplay shoot.
You can look for “Glee” on Cosplay.com for my pictures and the rest of the cosplays I have done.

Also my album “yuna cosplay” on my facebook for out of shoot photos.
e-mail me for my facebook, or just find me ^^
You can even go on my DA for a few.
If I remember ill come back to give a link. But im not good on blogs. Its more of a I dont know, journal for when huge events happen.

Thank you for reading

Convention in the future


So we didnt get a table. That is cool it was the comic side we should of known the professionalism and took both sides somehow. But this year we was iffy on it cause this is the first time this con is doing two in one. So we just applied and just left it alone. So now that we dont have a table we are kind of relived cause its kind of a choice that was made for us. So cosplay to the extreme it is. And more videos. Which I cant wait for. And the wine in the park idea I cant wait. Around the park there is a market of self made wine with different flavors. We are thinking of having relaxation time. And its only 12 buck for the bigger bottles ><.

Like I was saying we can plan officially this time. Im so excited.
