Okay, but on a more serious note, SacAnime really needs to do something about the heat. (and I don’t mean “change the weather” though that would be ideal if they somehow could!       )

They should issue official heat advisories on the website and on their social media, along with tips on how to stay safe in the heat.

They should distribute flyers in the con goodie bags with said tips about how to stay cool.

They should have official cooling stations around the con, with places to sit, fans around, easy access to water, and hopefully staff who are able to if not directly help then at least call in an on-duty EMT in case things get out of hand. 

Yes, Sacramento can get hot, but this is an anime convention where people may not make the best decisions about taking care of themselves anyway, and once cosplay and 110° heat are involved, it can become disastrous. This con caters to families and teenagers, meaning that children (more susceptible to heat) may be in attendance, and teenagers may not be as responsible or able to take care of themselves in the way that adults with more life and con experience can. 

It’s been a long time (possibly this is the first time) since we’ve had an entire SacAnime forecasted to be over 100°, and being out and active in that kind of heat for three full days can really take a toll.

Take care of yourselves out there. I doubt there’s going to be any special considerations put into place at the con itself this close to the show date, but please please please stay hydrated and well fed, let your sweat evaporate, use extra water to cool yourself down if possible, and stay in air conditioned areas as much as possible.

8 Sewing Essentials You Can’t Live Without by Annika Victoria

anonymous asked:

Hello! I'm pretty new to cosplaying and was wondering if you would mind helping me out? I apologize if you receive this ask often, but I was unable to find anything. Would you by any chance be able to give me some tips on wig styling or just tell me which products are the best, and also where I can find good contact lenses? Thank you

Hi! I made a post about wigs a while back, but I will copy and paste it here for convenience. :)

Lucaille is my absolute favorite place to buy wigs, shipping is a little spendy but the wigs are mostly below $20 which means you can get 2-3 to make it more worth your while! Some even come fully styled and only require a slight trimming of the bangs.

Arda is of course a favorite amongst cosplayers everywhere, they have some of the highest quality and widest range of styles and colors anywhere! I’ve gotten many of my best wigs from here. They also sell worbla and other cosplay making supplies, and perhaps the biggest plus is that they’re in the US so if you live here shipping is much faster!


Kasou’s wigs are some of the highest quality I’ve come across so far, and as a result they are more expensive. Nonetheless, an extremely trustworthy and kind seller who makes beautiful wigs!

If you are willing to jump through hoops on Taobao by using a proxy service such as Spreenow (i’ve used them several times and they’re great!), this is another great shop .

As for contacts, I highly recommend Uniqso (you can use my code “hisoneko” for 10% off!) or Honeycolor!

Hope this helps~ ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

I’ll tell you what I think | Not Accepting

“Wanted wandering wind warrior? Can we change that to something less… romantic? Maybe, ‘Homeless Vagrant Criminal Walking The Streets with a Deadly Weapon’? …No? …Not as catchy?”

“I mean, what’s really there to say? The guy obviously doesn’t seem that respectable. Failed his one job, killed a defenseless old man in the process of said failing of one job, and now spends his days drunkenly wandering the countryside disobeying the law? Is there a single shred of class in the guy or did that vanish along with his shirt?”

“One out of ten, maybe. He only gets that much for having a certain rugged style about him, but that doesn’t mean much when he’s not even as handsome as I am. Think I might even wear that gear better, in fact.”

I just got done putting this up when I snapped this picture. Took a while to develop in Photoshop but once I put it together everything fits in there perfectly.

It holds 9 standard cans on each rack, and has 6 racks.

The best part about it, is that it will hold short cans from the auto parts store and really tall cans without having to sacrifice room above.

The line art below the paint rack is a to-size printable image. You may copy it and use it however you see fit.

¾/2015>> Doing work between classes. I really am enjoying my new setup it works well; considering I took a lot of books from the library and now have more than I know what to do with. 

And yes that’s a cosplay binder; I happen to be planning one. That’s why the binder is out; I was working on it.
