Brain children I want to cosplay (+ digital art)

Image
Hi fellow nerds!
I wanted to make a post about some original characters I want to cosplay, but I wanted to include some kind of picture of them, so I took a very long time to check color schemes, sketching different designs and once I got something I was happy, I ended up redesigning them again after some time again, lol. Well, I can say they're finished now. These are my Dungeons and Dragons characters. Sure I have some other original characters I made in the past for different types of role plays and yeah I want to rewrite and redesign them, but I'm not as invested in them as I am in these lovely ladies. :^) 
Name: Vamppi/Isabella Race: Halfling Class: Cleric
This brave little halfling was the first character I created. Originally she was a bard, but since our group fucked up the game so badly we had start over again, we got a chance to change things up with our characters. All of us kept the names and races the same, but class was the one we wanted to change, so I ended up be…

Chibicon Oulu 2018!

Hi fellow kids!
I went to Chibicon last weekend in Oulu, Pohjankartano! This time my boyfriend Kim and a friend of mine, Pipatius as my company. Trip started early Saturday morning since my car have been acting up and I didn't dare to drive to Oulu with it.. so I left my car to my dad so he can check what's wrong. My Donald Duck kind of luck. Me and Kim walked to the bus stop near us and soon, deeper in Simo, Pipatius would join us in the same bus. Nothing interesting happened during the trip. We just snacked and talked shit as per usual. :) I was very happy spending time with Pipatius, my school work have been eating me up with early mornings and days that seem to never end, it was really therapeutic talking to a friend. <3

I remember getting to the convention building, seeing the line to get tickets. It was long and it was a bit chilly outside, but hey, that's all about how you dress up. I didn't feel like putting on a cosplay. Originally I was planning to cospla…

Makeup for Dummies - Eyes and eyebrows

Eyes are basically the most important part of cosplay makeup and they need a lot of attention, but no need to worry. Even a soft eyeliner does a big difference. I remember this one convention I forgot my whole bag of makeup and there was this really nice girl with a sweet lolita gear, who borrowed me a mascara and an angled brush to do my lashes and eyeliner. She was a saint!

"For perfect eyemakeup you don't need to be a makeup artist, you just need time and a lot of practice" - Mariela Sarkima


Lets begin with the basics, products and what they do:
Liner: - Makes it look like you have more volume on your lashes -Shapes your eye - Makes your eyes look bigger (which is great when you wanna look like a moe anime character)
Eyeshadow: - Gives your eyes that three-dimensional look with lighter and darker colors - Highlights your eye color  - Again, makes your eyes look bigger and gives depth to your look
Mascara: - Highlights and darkens your lashes - Opens up your eyes - Finishes…

Starting over - I'm back!

Hello everyone!
Nope, this blog is not inactive, I just have not had time to work on anything else than school. I started a month later than everyone else in my class so I've had to do a lot of studying on my own to catch up with everyone. Now that I'm done with that and I can continue my life normally I can finally focus on my hobbies, including cosplay!
So yeah, I've been in a long (much needed) break, and my mind is cleared and I've been able to check a few new animes, play a few new games and get actually inspired to cosplay again! I'm basically starting over. I just don't care about the characters I've cosplayed in the past as much. I just threw a few away, kept the ones I still like etc. That means new projects! \o/
Brigitte Lindholm - Overwatch
As I posted on instagram, my next project will be Brigitte from Overwatch. I love her so much and her desings. I'm not comfortable to start on armor yet, so yeah, obviously going with this ^^ Brigitte is s…
