Well, I think it might be cause over here a costumer is mainly rated by skill shown in the costume making and acting, not by popularity of the show or his/her race :)

dead perfect never works (personally I have a slight disorder when it comes to at least getting the costume good...it doesn't matter if it doesn't match the reference to a T, as long as the bloody seems and patterns are 100% I get mad otherwise)

Same here i've gotten suggestions one of them was Rukia but I'm not sure XD they said it was cause the way my face looked that i had that round cute young look and i was just like 'bleh.....' I'm not going to bind to cosplay Rukia...when i can not bind and use my bust to my advantage like for Orihime, Rangiku or Halibel.

Funny thing is, my dad has pretty dark skin... and my mom looks Aryan (platinum blonde hair and blue eyes). So i got this weird... mish mash... thing. My skin looks normal pale when you see me from a distance, or a picture. But put my arm up against any normal white person, and i'm a light brown rather than a light pink. Hella weird.

LOL, I have the opposite with legs and torso... I have long legs and short torso. Also have the huge hips, well defined waist, but only medium bust (and it goes away if I lose weight). Most of my ancestors are from Scotland (I'm 4th generation on my mom's side), with a little Welsh, Irish, French, and Nez Perce thrown in for good measure. I always get asked if I'm Spanish.

I'm totally jealous of people with the money to do the stuff they want to. I'm a full-time student and publishing intern (unpaid...it's pretty much slave labor) and my brother is in college as well, so there's not a lot of money to go around. :(

There are a lot of asians in Cali :o especially San Fransico.....surprisingly i saw a bunch of very hot Chinese, Korean, Japanese and such guys. I had figured they would be else where living it up but nope, there were a few in each part of town(China Town, Japan Town) <3 even on the pier and on that one beach that is really foggy they took some pictures of the places i couldn't get to for me and one took off his shirt...i'm getting off topic now D:

Yea....our asians guys here in El Paso aren't much the the females are very pretty they look mature and their own age. I saw one girl, she had the straight across bangs her hair was curly, she had bright red lipstick on and one of those puffy jackets with the faux fur around the hood, skinny jeans and black pumps....I hated her cause she looked stunning.....But then again she was part Chinese and Hispanic, a lot of our hispanic girls look asian it's very interesting

Alyxiane
12-29-2010, 12:30 AM
^ The fact that Hispanics tend to look Asian is an interesting scientific case (I'm a tiny science nut xP). I take a biotechnology class at school and we had a lab on finding a certain gene in each of our DNA. We then looked up a website on how much of the world population has the gene. It turns out that the highest frequency of people with the particular gene is located in South America with China, Taiwan, and the Philippines following it. This led to the possibility that the South Americans somehow crossed the Pacific to China and then Taiwan and so forth which explains how the gene has spread (and apparently affects the physical appearance to an extent).

While we're on genetics, did you guys know that apparently Asians and Caucasians share the same root ancestors? We're very much cut from the same cloth.

And our ancestors (before we split into Asians and Caucasians) apparently mated with neanderthals. Seriously. So both Caucasians and Asians are, to some small degree, descended from neanderthals. I can't remember in which magazine I read this, but I was like, "Whoa."

There goes Proud's racially pure theory. Not only are "Westerners" and "Asians" derived from the same root people, but that root group mated with neanderthals.

African races, however, did not mate with neanderthals.

Okay, corset training is essentially wearing a corset (that has been carefully fitted to you) for, like, six to twelve hours a day. Your body will, over a period of around six months or so, begin to be shaped or modified by the corset. :D

Couldn't hurt. And your posture would be great. :D Just remember that it's supposed to fit comfortably. Despite popular belief, you are supposed to be able to breathe normally while wearing a corset.

Yep, You gotta do your "homework" on not only the character you are cosplaying/crossplaying but also the materials you will construct the cosplay out of. Takes time.

I'm so jealous of all these cosplayers i see from Russia. Is that place awesome for photoshoots or what? <3

Oh man me too! When it comes to gorgeous backdrops, i think Russian, German and U.K. cosplayers have it easy. Especially for series like D. Gray Man, Kuroshituji, Trinity Blood, etc. *dreamy eyes*

To get nice pics though, you have to practice at posing and photography OR find decent photographers through cosplay.com and networking in general.

I have been material hunting for Kairi for the past week and a half :o the only thing i can't find that i feel would be perfect is the actual dress material....and the right color paint for the shoes.

I'm assuming you mean her KH2 dress, the REALLY CUTE pink one. Maybe a nice "Linen" Fabric will suffice for her dress. You may also want to look into poly-blens. There maybe a tutorial here on her dress too.

what kind of shoe are you using as a base? If your using a canvas shoes, you can get nice results by dying them with fabric dye, or painting them w/ fabric paint. You may have to mix colors to get the right shade though (fabric paint).

^ The fact that Hispanics tend to look Asian is an interesting scientific case (I'm a tiny science nut xP). I take a biotechnology class at school and we had a lab on finding a certain gene in each of our DNA. We then looked up a website on how much of the world population has the gene. It turns out that the highest frequency of people with the particular gene is located in South America with China, Taiwan, and the Philippines following it. This led to the possibility that the South Americans somehow crossed the Pacific to China and then Taiwan and so forth which explains how the gene has spread (and apparently affects the physical appearance to an extent).

... I feel so smarty pants. XD

That explains why i used to look asian when I was young. People always ask me or my mother if my sister is asian since both my siblings have this asian looking eyes.

From what I know so far, my relatives have mix indigenous in them, but mostly from my great great grandparents. My parents were born in Mexico city and I was born in Texas along with my two siblings. So my skin is tan but not too dark, im still lighter then my mother ^^. So I understand the whole bust thing, but mines is a B-Cup so I don't suffer much. People say I have pretty legs but I don't think so, Im soo Tombish and its rare for me to wear a dress ^^".

My heritage is uncertain. I know what my family heritage is on my mom's side, but I don't know what's on my dad's side, since he was adopted from Germany (Bad Tölz, actually) when he was a little boy. So, until I find out more information about his birth parents, my parents just assume that my siblings and I are half German.
(from Mom's side) I'm 1/8 Southern Paiute Native, 1/8 Diegueño Native, 1/8 French, Irish, Spaniard, and whatever other European nations are mixed in. Add in 1/2 German, and we're good to go. :)

Manly cake is manly :heart:

Anyway, here's an incredibly manly cake to cut the tension! (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_gkInsVVB5E4/SO6yyz7pdMI/AAAAAAAAAi4/cXVUSfqxAcE/s400/Janet+T.jpg)

Remninds me of the Mann-Co president from the Team Fortress 2 comics on their blog XD

i'm 5'8", 125 pounds, small all over (except my backside, it's about average) and wear a 35" inseam. i'm mostly scandinavian and eastern european. born in minnesota, lived in california for 16 years, and in missouri now... i miss my mediterranean weather, winter here sucks!

i generally crossplay since i don't like wearing "cute" clothes and i don't have the most feminine face, and most of the people i cosplay with are shorter than me so i can get away with playing taller characters. i do enjoy making my own costumes, but due to lack of experience i don't strive for perfection. when i buy one to modify, then i pay strict attention to details. i honestly think it's more about a person portrayal of the character than the costume itself anyway ^_^

Oh man me too! When it comes to gorgeous backdrops, i think Russian, German and U.K. cosplayers have it easy. Especially for series like D. Gray Man, Kuroshituji, Trinity Blood, etc. *dreamy eyes*

To get nice pics though, you have to practice at posing and photography OR find decent photographers through cosplay.com and networking in general.

I was about to disagree, but yeah. England is a versatile place for photoshoots. However, you can't ever get them on sunny days. DX

Anyway, I like Spanish/Portugese/Mexican cosplayers. They're so pretty~!

Dead thread, Neelh. Check the last post date on a thread before posting in it, especially if you're just making idle conversation.
