Becoming Data Pt. 2

Well friends, we are officially a week away from C2E2! There are lots of exciting things going on in the meantime, and next week’s posts will be spectacular. Some of my blog buddies agreed to help me out, and are writing guest posts for C2E2 Week! I am beyond thrilled to work with some amazing,…

The DIYer’s Utility Belt: The Right Tools for the Job

Real Talk: I decided that writing a post for Face Off was too stressful. As much as I love the show, the task of writing about it each week made me dread each new episode. Instead, I thought I would write a post that should have been shared a long time ago. It’s no secret that we love…

The $50 Cosplay Challenge Results!

C2E2 was—as always—AMAZING! I got to see so many cool costumes, meet amazing people (Jamie and Adam from Face Off, and Sean Astin), and purchase great items from cool artists. I met some incredibly nice fans as well, and everyone I encountered was really polite and friendly. If you’ve never gone to a convention, you…

In This Week’s Episode: A Cosplay Update!

I’ve been very busy this week, what with classes and working, but I’ve also been really busy working on my costume. After I posted my last update, I did find a new skirt…only to find that it was bleach resistant…and I needed to bleach it. So, after spending even more money, and after buying two skirts just in case,…

Funday Friday: Cosplay Update

Just wanted to give an update on the progress of my costume! If you’re new and are not sure what I’m referring to, I’ve challenged myself to create a Two-Face costume for $50. For more information, check out my $50 Cosplay Challenge post. But a lot has happened in a week, so I’ll give you…

The $50 Cosplay Challenge

C2E2 is only 30 days away, and I wanted to do something special. This particular convention, which takes place in Chicago every April, is one of my favorite events of the year; it allows me to be my geekiest and, most importantly, it is an outlet for creativity. I’ve made it well-known in the past…

Funday Friday: Make-up Madness

After I posted my Two-Face make-up tutorial, many people have been asking that I put up another one. Though I’m not sure if I’ll make a video (I’m not a make-up blog, really), I did want to show you lovelies one of the “deleted scenes” of my original video idea. In the planning stages, I…

Cosplay on a Dime: Creating a Costume without Breaking the Bank

Since my make-up video, I have been searching for cheap and creative ways to make a great cosplay for less money. I try to keep the costs down, but sometimes that’s not entirely possible. With convention season upon us, any tips or tricks will do. Thanks to Pinterest*, I’ve been able to find some cool…

Get Cosplay Ready with Eyeshadow & Water: Video and Tutorial

It’s no secret that I love cosplay: the costumes, the conventions, and the makeup. But getting cosplay ready can be costly and time consuming. Being a poor college student, I’ve had to find shortcuts both in cost and time to make my creations come to life. So, in my first ever YouTube tutorial, I’ll show…

Funday Friday: All Dressed Up

Cosplay, in recent years, has become hugely popular. Whether or not you think cosplay (short for costume players) is weird, there’s one thing you should know: cosplaying is one of the most liberating acts to perform. Considering that my favorite holiday is Halloween, cosplaying makes every day Halloween for me. I can be anyone I want…
