I do love a cute bookworm, librarian, or bibliophile, real or imagined.
Talk wordy to me.
Read or Die's OVA really is wonderful (though I prefer the first half to the second). If you're an anime fan, it's worth a look.
I suppose it’s like an anime take on the X-Men, or SHIELD, except the organisation is based in England and a bit Victorian (even though it’s set in modern times).

do you ever cook something in the microwave but it’s still really cold in the middle and you just keep eating it instead of heating it longer because life is pointless and entropy is unavoidable and the universe is filled with callous and casual destruction
idk I just kinda mix it up with a fork
Today’s activity: Making a chocolate cake from all the odd-and-ends in the house which are about to go out-of-date, while getting trashed on ouzo
Random body selfie as the waistcoat from my new suit finally arrived today!
Literally just threw it on to be sure about the fit, and hadn’t cut off the tag - with it being mail order it had my receipt attached with some debit card info, so had to blur it out
So, it’s been a wild ride, but I’m finally approaching the end with my Shepard cosplay.
I have only one task remaining; I’m going to try and rework the front and back plates to split into smaller pieces that connect via studs, so I can fit the whole thing in a box. Right now, those parts are huge and quite fragile.
Once that’s done, though, it can go in a crate to come out for the occasional con, and I can start work on my next project…
… which is going to be an altogether different sort of space-faring hero.

One of the things I like the most about cosplay is that just when you think you’ve seen everything, you always seem to find something totally new.
Some real creativity on show from this person & their photographer.
Reblogged from livin that cosplay life
I’ve been a cosplayer for a while, starting when I was 13 with my first badly made ichigo mew cosplay and I have not wanted to give up since. I am trying to set up my own cosplay business so that hopefully I can make cosplays for other people and make their con life just a bit easier.
So to help start up I have started this blog. I started it quite a while ago but am determined to keep it updated with my progresses and tutorials. If you have any questions send me a message and feel free to share your cosplays with me, I’d love to have a cosplay community
Awesome to hear! I hope it goes well! Always great to see new people getting into cosplay, either just on their own or making a business out of it.
Managed to get a code for the Smash Bros demo from a friend online, and it’s pretty awesome!
Megaman seems really fun to play as, and the gameplay’s very fast & fluid.
The demo offers a free-for-all on one basic stage, with a choice of Mario, Villager, Link (adult), Pikachu and Megaman. If anyone has any questions about it, hit up my ask-box and I’ll try to answer them.

How to make a Labrys Axe (from Persona 4 Arena)
Somebody asked how I made my axe recently, and I thought I would share how I made mine with everyone through the use of a picture guide!
Hope it’ll be useful to fellow crafters out there! (I still consider myself an amateur though, and coupled with the fact I didn’t do any research on how it could be done beforehand, there’s probably lots more to improve on how I made this.)
Complete list of materials used: Foam board, Styrofoam, Gum paper, EVA foam, PVC pipes, screws, industrial cable, wood glue, hot glue gun, spray paint, silicone sealant
Cosplay photos at the end are taken by: Brian Lim Photography (http://www.facebook.com/BrianLimPhotography) and Razrig Photography (http://www.facebook.com/razrigphotography) Thank you for the amazing photos!
Thanks! It was fun to put on, and the audience seemed to like it. We got about 40 people!
