"A Century Ago"/Cosplay Plans

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 28, 2011, 2:18 AM
I clearly haven't updated my deviantART in a long time...the last entry I wrote dates back to July. Every now and then I log in here to see what's new, and it always reminds me of how much I used to blab in my journal posts. It got to a point I realized it was much like shouting pointless words in a thunderous gale. It wasn't a big deal, and I eventually took my pointless words elsewhere. I've been wanting to ramble on here again, and I might. So it begins? Maybe!

I hope to add more cosplay pictures soon. It's unfortunate that while I cosplay an adequate amount, I don't actively schedule and prepare for photoshoots. I was Snow White for Halloween, and I was told I looked wonderful, but the only photo of me was taken with Tainted-Bliss's cellphone and in it my eyes are noticeably different sizes. I spent a considerable amount of time assembling the costume (Bliss helped a lot with the sewing), and I'm painfully aware I have very little to show for it. The same thing happened with my Duskull gijinka at Fanime. It's only a somewhat hazy memory of a hotel mirror reflection now. I'm aiming to snuff that pitiful reminiscence after I complete my final quarter of school mid December.  

I don't like group shots for the sake of group shots. Even if the entire cast finds a decent location off to the side for a members-only shoot, cramming everyone in with no concept still says, "We're at a convention." Cosplay, when done well, brings anime and manga (and in many cases movies, cartoons, and Western comics) to life. Nothing says I'm an American Joe Somebody than standing in cosplay in a large group of cast members against a concrete wall, squinting toward the camera for a rushed picture. It's a little tough to explain, but when someone takes a picture of me cosplaying, I want people to look at the picture and say, "That's Sakura" instead of "That's Larisa cosplaying Sakura." Does that make any sense?

Anyway,
SacAnime Winter
Friday: Mad Madam Mim (Young and fair version)
Saturday: Anbu Sakura (Including originally designed elements)
Sunday: Pickles the Drummer (from Metalocalypse)

I really want to put thought into poses and scenery for my pictures!

I must admit, I also don't like posting cosplay pictures on my account for the sake of posting pictures. I consider this site a home for my cosplay portfolio. I have to have at least some pride in the pictures I include, hence the relatively small number I've got up. I want to make certain characters and scenes a reality, and it just doesn't happen when I've forgotten to remove my con badge, posing awkwardly on a hotel lobby carpet. Strong character likeness and setting likeness is what I personally strive for and yearn for when it comes to cosplay, because I get such a thrill seeing a living interpretation, be it someone else's or my own. It's usually why I feel reluctant to enter a convention or remain in cosplay for an extended period of time, if I'm not satisfied with my adaption of a character. I enjoy cosplaying for other reasons, but the one stated above is most prominent.

Goodnight, everyone.

You fucking whore. There's a special place in hell reserved for people just like you. I want my mother back. You're not God. You'll never be God. All this suffering needs to stop. You told me "forever." I hate you. I hate your doodles. You'll never be a teen model. You belong in a garbage can.
