These are amazing!!! So pretty!
I've never actually heard of someone using contact cards in the Western Hemisphere! Are these just on printer paper?


And another question! Is it common for people to set up alternate face book accounts for their cosplay alter ego?

I'm totally DEAD SET on doing a skit at NYAF/NYCC this year. I have a basic idea for a skit, but i"m not sure if it'll work out...but I would REALLY like to do it. It won't be just a dance skit, but it won't be just dialogue. I really want to do a Yumeiro Patissiere skit, but I can't think of a complicated outfit of Ichigo's that ISN'T the giant pink dress that I really want to make...and I'm a journeyman now, so I don't want something too simple, even though I'm putting more effort into the performance section rather than craftsmanship right now.
I did do a little looking around, and this looks like something that isn't TOO too complicated OR too simple. I mean....uhh...Yumeiro Patissiere isn't that popular anyway, so it's not like that many people would recognize it.

Edit: @Pudding- I don't know if I would call it common, but it works out really well for ME at least.

I also meet a lot of people at random and start up conversations with them, (In line for autographs or just waiting around.) If they seemed nice I would write my facebook address on the back and give it to them, that way we could keep in touch later on :3

Though, I did hand them out to those who attended a photoshoot I had so that they could contact me for their pictures. I made 60 cards last time.

Made my cards on the assumption they'd picture it on their phones and toss it.
Thank you, I heard people talk about them on here, but only time I saw them a cons were from photographers with professional cameras

FINALLY! I got my fabric samples today and they're the perfect color!
I've sent after so many samples and finally. Never thought it would be so hard finding light yellow and the right dark red. Have to order fabric NOW! Only three weeks left until the con D:

GUAH! My contact card/business card is starting to look largely utilitarian and bland by comparison to everyone's. (>o<)

I'll probably just go to a local shop and have my contact cards made there to keep my money local. 1000 @ $40 sounds very competitive especially when compared to online retailors.

I have way too much fun with my Miku wig. And doing my makeup. I think I spent, like, at least over half an hour doing my makeup (for no reason) and I didn't even attempt my fake lashes.

Uhh...I'll stop fooling around with cameras and work on my mockup now.......

It's handy for me to give out business cards since I'm often in Artist's Alley at conventions ^_~ Plus I'm a graphic designer by trade so they're simple enough to make up. So often the good photos and awesome people from conventions get lost or forgotten after it's over, so having a way to keep in touch is super-nice.

This is mine (ignore the ugly old drawing on it, I've had these for quite awhile >_< )

I just got braces, so while my teeth will be straight eventually, I'm concerned about them affecting my cosplay. I just won't let anyone see my teeth.

Finally finished styling my new wig. And it's perfect! No blunt cuts and all.. So proud of myself for that xDD

Now for the dye job. Intimidated!

Post convention coma has hit me, and I can't seem to make myself work on anything cosplay related, even though I have been meaning to! I hope this doesn't last too long =(

My Miku wig is driving me nuts. It got tangled right away (of course I couldn't stop playing with it when I got it in the mail).. and it seems the more I brush it out the more I get impossible mats and tangles. Huff! Whats the secret to wig care?! For the first time ever I have tons of wigs and I am slowly letting them devolve into tangled rubbish! :-(

After seeing the same cosplayer photographed hundred of times, I've come to a certain appreciation for the brief moments I've seen her break character while I happened to be resting from walking around with my wings on the sideline. Sounds like a creeper, but I just happened to be there...
