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 ...

This is my first critique, so here's a go at it: I love this picture so much! I spent a few minutes staring at it trying to figure out ...

Cosplay Plans 2015 by Dolphinz514
Cosplay Plans 2015
These are my official plans for my cosplay of the year 2015! :nuu:

For Newton Geiszler, Draco Malfoy and Tony Stark, I will be taking those cosplays to Salt Lake Comic Con 2015!
For those cosplays, I need to finish Newton, and restyle Draco's and Tony's wig.

Len Kagamine (Senbonzakura), Castiel and Rainbow Dash are going to be for Nagu Con 2015!
I have started progress on Rainbow Dash's gijinka that I designed, and I have gotten Castiel's trenchcoat. I also ordered blue contacts which are on their way (that I will also be using for Newton.)

For Fem!Gabriel and Rock, I will be cosplaying them at Mis Con 2015 if I end up going. My plans for going are not for certain yet, but I will know if I can make it in a few months. (Depends on my new job. :p)

I got the template from this artist right here! :iconchikarasan:

I tagged :iconjaspersellene: and :iconxxenergizerbunnyxx:, and anyone else who wants to do it! :)

I will be making a video discussing this topic very soon! 
Oh my gosh, guys!!! So, I recently have been informed of the apparently awesome convention of Salt Lake City's Comic Con! I am so excited, mostly because of the awesome guests: Carrie Fisher, Christopher Lloyd, and best of all...TOM FELTON. Yes, Tom Freaking Felton who is Draco Malfoy, my FAVORITE character from the HP series! I am so stoked, and a few friends and I from my theatre class have been making a few plans to go! We're not for sure yet if we're attending, and if we are, I will make a journal of that later giving more details. 
The Voice of Your Conscience by Dolphinz514
The Voice of Your Conscience
"The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It's the age-old struggle: the roar of a crowd on the one side, and the voice of your conscience on the other."

Gryffindor and Slytherin
Wow another lame title is lame. XD I'm sorry; I'm in the middle of procrastinating homework, playing Pokemon and uploading these pictures so I am not really able to come up with extremely amazing titles right now. XD

These were mine and Bunny's cosplays for Nagu! We absolutely love Harry Potter and we had to do the series this year, no questions asked.

This was taken at Nagu Con 2014.

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.


: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!
