Well, I see some fellow deviants asking for points, and I figure, I'll post it and see what happens. I'm new to this point thing, so hopefully I'll figure it out eventually. The goal is the minimum amount for a subscription thing.

Slash by craftysorceress
Did you all see the lateset Attack on Titan movie trailer? It looks so good, and I think MikaEren has made it to canon harbor.

As someone who has spent HUNDREDS of hours building Mikasa and Eren cosplays, no, I am not a crazy fangirl. No, where did you get that idea from???

Series: Attack on Titan
Character: Mikasa Ackerman
Awards: Star City Anime 1st Place craftsmanship

Sailor Jupiter-Battle Start Makeup by craftysorceress
Sailor Jupiter-Battle Start Makeup

Here’s a makeup test of Sailor Jupiter, right after transforming. In the animation, she basically looks like she’s wearing no makeup. But since no human has huge anime features like giant eyes, I had to tweak things.

Then I studied how the live-action and other makeup artists and cosplayers did the makeup. Some of the live-action did ALL the glamour. Others added way so much makeup.

So I hope to strike a balance of looking generally nice, with a tad of glamour.

Korra: Water
The obligatory photo behind these lights at Animazement. Anyone who's been to this con or has been to Raleigh has seen these lights downtown.

Yup, Done.

The lighting is great, but totally left me backlit. ^_^;;;;

Sailor Jupiter-Battle Scarred Makeup by craftysorceress
Sailor Jupiter-Battle Scarred Makeup
What would the sailor scouts look like if they really got hurt?

These middle-school girls get strangles, shot at, knocked over, and knocked out. Ya gotta wonder why don't they look more like they've been in a fight?

I wanted to play with that concept in this Sailor Jupiter battle-scarred version, but studying how the scouts look like when there's trouble (both animation and live-action versions) and how other costume makeup artists do battle scars.

The legs and the arm makeup takes 5 seconds to re-apply and can be re-applied again and again because of a new technique I experimented with.

Maybe magic rays don't cause physical damage...?

Mia Fey, Ace Attorney Makeup (late 20's age)
Here's some makeup for the late 20's age, young professional woman, and Mia Fey matches this perfectly! I have been wanting to do that costume for quite some time!

craftysorceress Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2013  Student Artisan Crafter
It was so cool ganging out with you too! I plan to go to Kinyoobicon, and I dunno if Japan Expo is possible for me. But, after meeting you all, I was so motivated and re-inspired to go do an Attack on Titan cosplay. So thanks for the encouragement! :D

I haven't done much on here in a while too. I only do it in spurts, but I should do more. @_@ Are you on the tumblrs/CosComs? I am less active on there, but I am trying for months to get my art portfolio up, so if you have one of those, I totally wanna follow up with you on there too!
