Wow! This picture is stunning! :D I don't usually give critiques, since I usually just enjoy looking at the pictures, but I noticed one ...

Hey guys! So since this is going to be a simple message, I didn't feel like writing this in a journal, but I am planning on doing Cosplay Vlogs!!! I'm super excited to get these started! I just need to find myself a new video camera! :) 
When I get them going, and uploaded, I'll start posting links and stuff to here, as well as my tumblr. 
WIGS (Styling)

One major important thing when ordering wigs, is time management with the wigs. Especially when you're planning on styling it yourself. I'll share some tips and advice with you for different scenarios. Determined Emote 

Okay, so if you are going to style your own wig, make sure you have the proper tools to do so! Depending on the type/style of wig you have, and what hairstyle you'll be styling depends on what you'll need. This can vary from scissors, hairspray, hair glue, pins, combs, hair ties, etc. Look into what you'll need to get! Also look up tutorials to see if anyone else has styled the same hairstyle for a wig; usually they will have great suggestions on what type of tools you'll need. :)

If you're going to have someone else style the wig for you, make sure they know what they're doing! :) Make sure there is great communication, and if you can be there for the styling of the wig, do it! Having you there as they're styling, or even having you wear the wig as it's styled, will help ensure that you are getting what you want in your wig! :) However, if you cannot be there, make sure they have the pictures for references, and that they know exactly how you would like your wig to look like. i c wut y00 grinned thar 

And finally, if you are going to order a pre-styled wig, please try to contact the seller first. Ask them all your questions, and mention your concerns, and also ask if it's pre-worn. If so, ask how the wig fit on your head; everyone has a different shaped/sized head, so one wig can fit perfectly on someone else, yet a bit uncomfortably on you. Make sure you feel it is a good price, and it is the quality and the style is as correct as you want it. :) You wouldn't want to pay for something you don't like.

Also! Very important! No matter what scenario you are going to be in, order your wig ahead of time! If you can, order your wig at least five or six weeks before the convention/event you are traveling to. Some companies/business and sellers will take a long time to ship, and if you are going to have to style it, you want to make sure you have enough time to do so. :) Also look at wigs ahead of time; if you're buying from a specific company, check their restock dates, and make sure you get the wig you want! Companies and sellers are usually very good at responding, and will help you with any style/color questions you may have.

So:

:bulletyellow: Order wigs early! :) Even looking a few months ahead at what wig you are going to get will be beneficial! Plan ahead to ensure your ownership of that wig!
:bulletyellow: Communicate! Whether it's your friend who's styling your wig, or the person you're buying from, make sure there's no confusions! Work hard for what you want! :)
:bulletyellow: Get the right tools and preparation! Make sure you know what you are doing, and how you're going to do it before you style your wig! :)

Hope this tip helps you guys out!
If you have any questions, just message me, or comment on one of my "Dolphinz's Cosplay Tips" journal entries!

Good luck, and happy cosplaying!

Hey babes! 

Alrighty, so I would like to update you guys on a few things cosplay related! :)

I am officially moved into college (for about a month now), however, my cosplay antes haven't stopped! ;D I promise I'm still working on things. Replacement Teddie Bear Productions (RTBP) have been discussing our ideas for Nagu Con: 2015, and I won't share those ideas exactly right now, just because they're not completely set in stone. But, we are 100% on doing one of them (Vocaloid Senbonzakura) because of next year's theme of Summer Festival. :) So, because I won't be sharing all the ideas yet, I'll just share with you the cosplays that I will be working on for next year's Nagu, and in the meantime. I'm hoping to go to MisCon this year, with some RTBP members and friends from Nagu, so that leaves open a few ideas too. :)

For my Castiel cosplay (I'm working on this for Nagu), I ordered a trenchcoat and it just got here!! :) It's basically perfect; I just have to do alterations to it to make it completely accurate, but it won't be that hard to do. Hyper Pump I'm getting super pumped! I also might be a Fem!Castiel for halloween, depending if I can get the other materials on time. However, since Castiel will be an official cosplay, I don't want to rush anything, so there's a high chance I might be Meg Masters instead. :)

Also, I have some pictures from Nagu for some of our cosplays, such as my Jack Frost cosplay. However, I had forgotten my camera that day, so I wasn't able to get very good pictures; they were a bit blurry. But! This Christmas break, I am traveling home for about a week, and I will be seeing :iconjaspersellene: for a Jelsa photoshoot. :) :iconxxenergizerbunnyxx: and I have a plan for a possible Harry Potter cmv as well. :) We're going to try to get some stuff done this break. I also am working on two cmvs we have finished, so I'll post links to that when they're finished. However! We do have our Kuroshitsuji skit from Nagu Con: 2014 posted! :) I'll post a link to that at the bottom.

Alright, so here are my upcoming cosplay plans and projects!

:bulletpurple: Meg Masters [?(Supernatural)]
:bulletpurple: Fem!Crowley (Supernatural)
:bulletpurple: Newton Geiszler (Pacific Rim)
:bulletpurple: Castiel (Supernatural)
:bulletpurple: Rainbow Dash [Gijinka (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)]
:bulletpurple: Len Kagamine [Senbonzakura (Vocaloid)]

Here is our skit! One Hell of a Butler Dance-Off

Hey guys! I have some news for you!
I am now selling my artwork and other things that I can create on Redbubble! :D

If you haven't heard of Redbubble, you've definitely missed out! Here's the link to the website: Redbubble

It's a great place to order shirts, pillows, jackets, pictures, bed spreads, anything really! :D And I've decided that I would like to sell mine as well, to help promote my works! And to also earn a bit of money! Excited Dummy I don't always have enough time for a job, and juggling school work and stuff, although I do have a good amount of free time on my hands, but anything I can earn on the side would be so helpful for conventions, supplies, etc. ^^

I don't have much up at the moment, and my account isn't completely connected yet, so buying from me may not be available for another day or two. :p

If you have any questions about what I'm selling, and what's available, don't hesitate to ask! I'll be able to answer questions ASAP.

My account on Redbubble: Me! :D

Alright, on another hand, my testing schedule lines up right with Sakura Con, so I won't be able to attend this year, and unfortunately, possibly not for the next few years to do the same testing schedule. :/

But! I still plan on going to Nagu Con 2015! :D I do have ideas written down, and while only one is set in stone, and a few others I'm about 90% sure I'll be doing them, I won't be sharing my plans until some months from now. ^^; I also don't have a whole time during school to work on any cosplays, but I have a shorter year of schooling, giving me about 2 extra months to work on cosplay, work, etc, so I will definitely be able to get some new cosplays down! I also plan to try new things this year, such as making a pair of wings, a awesome kimono and some tattoo sleeves. :)

I also have a few ideas for Halloween this year, but I'll update those later as well. ;)

Thanks for reading guys, and if you're interested in buying from my Redbubble site, go for it! :D I'd love the support and promotion from you guys!

Happy cosplaying!
