and this goes for out of cosplay to

faeron-the-wanderer  asked:

My guy, what's the name of the manga you've been reblogging?

Its called 

DANBERU NAN KIRO MOTERU?

Or in English

How Many Kilos are the Dumbbells You Lift?

I literally found it yesterday All thanks to @jake-everfree 

and its about these 2 girls which eventually turn to 5 

who want to start working out and going to the gym 

so theres Sakura Hibiki the blonde girl and my personal favorite whos basically just trying to lose weight cause she eats like Goku

and  Akemi Souryuuin the Dark Black Haired girl who is OBSESSED with Fitness and has a muscle fetish

And they get a BEAST OF A Personal Trainer named Machio

And he’s Just a Monstrous Intelligent Fitness Training Obsessed with helping them become Great!!

And the Manga goes in detail explaining Exercises.

Now I’m a Personal Trainer myself. I’ve been Certified the last 7 years and graduated college last year 

PS if you wanna hire me for online coaching just email me at jdownsfitness@gmail.com ;)

so I HONESTLY am Impressed with the facts they are spewing out. and THE MANGA IS F*CKIN FUNNY AS HELL! Because sometimes its slice of life fun.

Like a 29 year old teacher who loves to cosplay started working out so she could cosplay better 

and then it can turn into an ACTION BADASS SERIES just because Hibiki has Natural Gifts 

And everyones facial expressions will change to match the mood 

And its HILARIOUS, Its Fun, and just has so many things I appreciate as a Personal Trainer myself I LOVE THIS MANGA AND REAL TALK. Itss giving me 10x the Motivation to do better at fitness than OPM and yes even DBZ did back in the day 

SO GO READ IT NOW! 

https://mangadoom.co/danberu-nan-kiro-moteru/1

Under Amour Has Officially Endorsed Trump

Hello my dears,

I am disappointed to have to inform you all that Under Armour has officially released an endorsement of Donald Trump. I know that several people will be affected by this and no longer wish or be able to support them by wearing their binders or sports wear, so my suggestion to you lovely people is this:

@shapeshiftersinc

The sweet darlings there make incredible fashion binders for ALL sizes, and have several customization options besides your measurements. If you have a need for something or an idea that they don’t list, email them - they do amazing collaborative work. Giveaways and sales are frequent.

These aren’t scratchy hard-seamed undershirt binders. (Unless you want it to be an undershirt binder, in which case, that’s what they’ll make for you.) These are soft, smooth, sensitive-skin friendly FASHION binders that you can wear as a part of your wardrobe! I wear mine early every time I go out (the only times I don’t are when I’m going to work out or swim) and it is durable, goes with all of my clothes, and has given me my social life back. They use medical grade binding mesh, and it works wonders.

Note that they’re not trans-exclusive, either; if you want a binder for cosplay, that’s cool, too! If you need bathing suit shorts or a skirt, they’ve done that. Dresses, too. Everyone is welcome.

Love to you all,

Errol

this didn’t happen to me, it happened to an old friend who now goes to art school. my close friend, kate, told me about it.

so the friend’s name is christopher, but he’s been going by “pher” since sixth grade. halfway through seventh grade, pher showed up to class in a suit. and then. he never. stopped. wearing suits. he wore suitS for the rest of seventh grade and ALL of eighth.

oh, and then my friends got him into homestuck. for about, like, two weeks, he was constructing himself a vriska cosplay out of paper. it got progressively more elaborate: he gave himself a paper robot hand, horns, and even got a pair of sunglasses to imitate vriska’s. it was weird.

and then ninth grade came along. he went to art school (along with kate) while i went to the standard one. and last time i saw kate, she told me of one of his… exploits.

on the first day of school, he decided that he would go by a different name for every class.

every. class.

all year.

none of the teachers ever noticed.

AND HE STILL WEARS NOTHING BUT SUITS.

Anyways here is how my warden cosplay is doing

Unforgivable Things Howl’s Moving Castle did:
  1. Got rid of Sophie’s personality to make her sad frumpy woman
  2. Got rid of Howl’s personality to make him seem empty 
  3. Got rid of Sophie’s magic and how she saved the day not through the power of being in love, but by the power of simply being a badass and beating the antagonist to death and saving the day
  4. There aren’t that many women in the story as is, but the movie got rid of about half of them Including her second sister who was learning to be a witch, how the two sisters charmed the other to look like the other and they switched places from the school to the bakery
  5. The reason the witch targeted sophie was because everyone in the city was wearing her hats (imbued with strong ass magic) and the witch felt threatened. 
  6. Speaking of being targeted, the movie handled it pretty well, but Real Sophie was like “i’m just gonna be a cool ass old grandma now and i’ll just go take on the world cuz who cares?” and was grumpy and had EMOTIONS that which the entire movie is lacking of tbh. 
  7. Michael (Markl in the film) was a teenager and their personality is about the same so?? but he’s trying to date one of sophie’s sister and they actually, i think, get really serious and it’s sorta cute
  8. Speaking of sisters: Sophie thinks that howl is courting her sister at the magicians but in reality he’s impressed they switched places and he’s hanging out with her to get the dish on sophie 👀👀👀
  9. He dyed his hair pink on accident in the book and at first he was like “AAAA” but then he was so fucking into it. although this is p much the only scene in the entire movie that was almost synonymous with the book 
  10. The “black” setting on the door doesn’t go like back in time or anything, it goes to OUR WORLD. He has like  fucking corvette and takes sophie around in it, it’s goofy and like 0/10 the movie didn’t even mention that he’s like a bored college kid who pretends to be related to fucking merlin and figured out how to travel between dimensions
  11. Did I mention he pretends to be merlin? He’s a cosplaying son of a ho. He pretends to be like 6 different wizards not even kidding. 
  12. The queen lady wasn’t evil, she was very very nice and she helps sophie realize that she’s full of magic and helps her break the curse. Women helping women woo!!
  13. I mean seriously, I know ghibli is really good about female characters etc…but for real…there are like a grand total of 5 in the story and the movie cut out 3 of them, made one evil and made the actual evil one good?? Get it together. 
  14. Speaking of one of the cut out women: Fanny! Like…the movie really really glosses over how the witch of the waste basically sparked sophie into running away from essentially a really really abusive and exploitative situation where she was basically doing slave labor for her stepmom. 
  15. At the same time while it’s glossing over that it totally cuts out her rage at being left behind in a  dusty store room making hats and basically ONLY having these hats for company (which is how she charmed them!!). Sophie has a lot of personality and she was soooo so so sassy and charged, it sucks that the movie cut that to make her an oatmeal mush salad.  
The Seeds of Chloe’s Redemption

There has been a lot of hate (mostly deserved) heaped on Chloe Bourgeois by the ML fandom, as well as theories of a redemption arc that she may go through to become the Bee Miraculous holder.  Chloe is one of my favorite characters.  Most people see the nasty personality she shows to the majority of Paris and immediately hate her.  Her peers, the fans, even the main characters usually treat her with disdain.  Again, mostly deserved.

However, there is a lot more beneath the surface of Chloe’s world that we don’t see.  How much do we know about her home life?  We’ve seen how miserable Adrien is.  Chloe also doesn’t seem to have her mother, Adrien and Sabrina are her only friends and even though her father dotes on her, does she really have a healthy father/daughter relationship with him?  

I’ve mentioned before (in this post) that I believe Adrien is friends with Chloe because he saw glimpses of humanity in her and wanted to help her become a better person.  Things like…

In “Darkblade” (Le Chevalier Noir):

  • Chloe is being her usual nasty self and an akuma attacks
  • Sabrina grabs Chloe for protection
  • Chloe puts her arm protectively around Sabrina
  • Is this the first glimpse we get of our budding bee?


In “Antibug”:

  • Instead of accepting Mylene as a scapegoat, she’s honest and blames an “invisible force” for pulling her hair
  • She risked the ridicule of the class to do this
  • I dunno it was like a unicorn or leprechaun or some shit
  • wtf, Chloe?!
  • Not a ghost.  Or the wind.  A LEPRECHAUN.

See where I’m going with this below the cut…

Songs of Ssael Prayerbook

Wanted to talk about my newest prop for Duane real quick. Was waiting to get the new photos up first, but I do not have time to edit them at the moment and needed a quick break from sewing my next costume.

Wish I had a before shot to share because it used to be blue.  Materials I used: a book, scrapbooking paper in green, gold, black velvet, and a fun design (you’ll see that one later), green and black fabric paint, tan, white, black, and brown acrylic paint, twine, gold ballpoint pen, a hot glue gun, and a lot of Modge Podge.

I was really picky about the base book I chose. It had to be the right size in my hand…not too thick as to look bulky but not so thin as I couldn’t do a little something fun with it.  I also ended up choosing this one because it left the ends of the pages raw and I liked the rough look of it! I had to sand the top of the book though, since the pages were dyed orange.

Here you can see where I tore off half of the spine. That was my first step, before I even started painting. You can also see where I glued down the twine bindings on the spine and the pieces that hang from the top of the book. I also used hot glue to seal the raw end of the twine so it wouldn’t unravel.

The designs I traced a vector for from the art and used that to print a stencil of sorts I could use to cut the pieces out with an exacto knife. It’s all glued down with Modge Podge.

All of the weathering with black and white I tried to keep as close to the illustrations of the book as possible.

Here is the rarely seen back! This is where the tan paint really came in. I used it to color the blue so I could save that slightly leathery texture of the original cover.  The green paper I glued on to re-do the cover I purposely left loose on that corner and tore the edge around to make it uneven.  I also spritzed it with water to get it extra floppy.

One of my personal touches was the old bloody handprint on the back. The space was partially covered in the art, and on its own it felt empty. I figured, Duane must have picked up the book after accidentally eating somebody at least once right.  I just painted my fingers brown and slammed them down on the back of the book.

Here is a detail shot where you can really see the textures in the papers I chose. I like the randomness of the gold, and the elegance the velvet added.  The green had a linen look to it that I thought fit well wishing the comic’s aesthetic.

I also want to talk about the letters here. Finding simple gold letter stickers was, oddly enough, impossible. I ended up buying purple glitter ones instead. I had to scrape off all the glitter, resurface it with Modge Podge, and color it with my gold leafing pen.  The ‘f’ I had to extend as well…placing a piece of another sticker under it before applying the Modge Podge.

Here is another detail shot showing the fun rough edges of the book, as well as some of the weathering I did on the edge.  For the edge I tried to sand through the paper to the tan paint I had applied underneath…but I ended up sanding through the paint too fast to the original color of the book. So in the end I took a box cutter and carved away at all the edges, down to the cardboard cover itself.  I ran sandpaper over the carved edges to make it look more like it had worn down and had not been carved out.

This is probably the roughest part of the book, but still pretty  happy with it! In the art it’s so small it’s just scribbles so I had to improvise what to put up there.  Considering the book it had to be Tainish for sure. The phrase I had originally chosen was too long, so I ended up mashing two other ones together and hoping it makes sense.  Can’t say I’m too well versed in Tainish grammar after all. I had also wanted to draw it in the Tainish alphabet, but sadly that is not available, so I used cursive instead.

For those who may have trouble reading my sloppy penmanship it reads:
Ssael fhikemun rish ul a Llede Llaemasa

Which should, in theory, translate to:
Ssael reveals the way to his Lions of Mercy

The inner cover I also redid with a paper with a fun design.  The edges of the green showed and I wanted a nice clean look all around.  Also a little extra weathering just cuz.

And last but not least, the whole reason I decided to do this project in the first place! I needed a place to keep my ribbons at ALA.

I made this into a hollow book with a lot of Modge Podge and cutting of pages and more Modge Podge and some heavy things. This is why the book couldn’t be too thin.  I made sure to leave a number of pages at the front loose so I could also use it as a prop.

arcano-cosplay  asked:

Loki comes back on earth without Thor (he's dead) in Infinity war AU

Oh noooooo. Ok. Here we go:

  • Thanos opens fire on the Asgardian ark. And of course, Thor goes out to fight him, despite Loki’s attempts to convince him to flee. Loki tries to bargain with the Tesseract, but Thanos throws Thor out an airlock and pretty much everyone is dying or dead at that point and Loki– Loki uses the Tesseract to run
  • He jumps. And jumps. And jumps. Travel by Tesseract is fucking rough, but he doesn’t want to leave an easy trail, so he keeps opening portal after portal until he collapses.
  • He wakes in a field. It takes him a few minutes to get his bearings and realize where he is–
    Midgard.
    Thor’s Midgard.
  • And that’s when it hits him – the loss of what remains of Asgard, the loss of Thor, and he just melts down. He screams, rages at the Norns, burns a chunk of the field, and ultimately collapses, sobbing hollowly.
  • He knows he ought to keep running; Midgard isn’t safe. Thanos will come here, if not for the tesseract, then for the other stones that reside here. He left the mind stone here after all. And when he comes…
  • Thor would have protected them, a voice at the back of his mind hisses. They’d be safer if it was Thor who lived instead of you. 
  • Which sparks… an idea.
  • Loki cannot bring Thor back. But he has grown skilled with his illusions – Asgard did not know Odin was gone for years. Loki can’t make this right, but he can pretend.
  • The glamour is surprisingly easy; he does not copy the shorn hair or the missing eye, but rather the look of Thor as he’s known him for a thousand years. He cannot replicate mjolnir, but he shapes an axe, and supposes it will have to do. He goes forth to find the Avengers and warn them of the approaching peril.
  • Thor is dead.
    Thor will save Midgard.
    (Loki will likely die in the process, but perhaps his brother and Valhalla will await him if he does this one last thing right.)


  • (BONUS headcanon: Hulk/Bruce somehow gets back to Midgard and immediately knows something is off, but Loki explains what he’s doing and Bruce grudgingly agrees to help, filling in the Avengers knowledge Thor would have but Loki lacks and generally covering for him.)
  • (BONUS BONUS headcanon: Thor isn’t really dead and survives and there’s a fuckton of confusion when he shows up and there’s two Thor and the Avengers realize they’ve been fighting with Loki all this time; Thor & Loki hug though and they’ve got bigger problems though, so….)

stargazer606  asked:

—–

By cosplaying, I tried to transcend all the thought and feelings in my mind into the dimension of reality.

It all started from choosing the right clothing and models to picking up the perfect places and props.
I looked through viewfinders, captured everything I see, and recorded it all down with my camera. They stayed in memory sticks, and then were moved to my computer hard drive, eventually being completed on papers.
Just as Ayanami said in The End of Evangelion (1997), “it is a continuation of reality. It is at the end of your dream.”
I was deeply moved and felt a great sense of relief, comparing to how frustrated I was to digest the feelings that I received at the very first time I watched Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Photography has helped me clarify my reflections on it. However feeling relief, as I mentioned, doesn’t mean the end of it.I still feel the emotions that I had with Neon Genesis Evangelion at the very beginning.
The difference is that I can now perceive them in a much calmer way. Those feelings give me the urge to pick up a camera and frame them out into photos. To me,it is so natural that it’s like breathing; as long as I’m still alive, they will always live in my heart and my mind.
To me, those impacts from the scenes and sounds in Neon Genesis Evangelion had imprinted in my life and, thus, became a part of me. Even though I feel for those characters, I’m not good at discoursing them in words and paragraphs.
Due to the way I process my thoughts in my mind, they’re more in the shape of pictures and sounds than in words.
To express it out more clearly, I choose to bring photography to combine with words. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
How do I tell abstract through printed words? I’d like to think of the answer of this question as the reason why I take photographs.
In the world of comic, animation and even Cosplay, everything comes and goes faster than ever in this generation.
Sometimes, it’s mostly about idolizing and beautifying characters. Although I fully realize how far I am away from the main stream, I am still determined to make this photo collection for Neon Genesis Evangelion, a Japanese Animation classic that was first broadcast on TV in 1995.
It is still pretty scary though, when you’re the only person here doing the things you want to do. Still, Sticking to the things I want to accomplish while holding on my principles and ways I want it done is always the most important part of these whole things. It shall never change. If one receive information from many different sides instead of one, there must be many things for one to discover from not only events but also characters or even more.
In my opinion, stories that stay in our minds for a very long time must had touched a part of our souls or memories.
Moreover they might had changed us, and pushed us further to grow and transform.
This is why Neon Genesis Evangelion impresses me so much. I am deeply moved by this master piece. I find fine papers and printings, put them together in rather simple yet meaningful way, and present this photo collection.

It’d be wonderful if anyone who gets it can feel the same way as I do when I made it.

Pinch the Cute Cheek of Death-Solangelo

Will: I got your cheek, cutie.

Nico: I am the essence of shadows. I am the Ghost King. I’m not cute.

Will: Is the cute Ghost King pouty from a lack of sleep?

Nico: *whines* I’ll make you fear me after I nap!
