Heya cosplayers! I need your help!
I’m a cosplay vlogger for Geek and Sundry vlogs (youtube.com/geekandsundryvlogs). In about two weeks, I’m gonna be doing a video on cosplay + body image. A lot of people have been asking me to talk about it, but I wanted to incorporate other view points since there are lots of different body shapes/sizes.
All I’d need is a short video of you saying what kind of body type/shape you think you have, some of the cosplays you’ve done, and any general thoughts you have to encourage others who are unsure about cosplaying because they aren’t confident! Or if cosplay has helped you improve your self esteem, confidence issues, etc! Any issues regarding sexuality and gender representation in cosplay are also appreciated!
i’ll just be cutting them down using a few clips for the actual video, but I’ll credit you! I can post links to your facebook/twitter, and the whole video if you decide to post it on youtube. I’ll try to use as many of your videos as possible! If you could also link me to some of your photos that I can add, that would be great!
It doesn’t have to be well edited or edited at all! It can be a oneshot… if you want, you can just record on your phone (most record in at least 720p these days!!)
You can either upload the video to youtube and link it to me, or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much! I’ll need these videos by this friday (march 7th)! Drop me a message and let me know if you’re interested!
a few more days left for this!
Sounds like a great project, I’ll be keeping an eye out for the final piece! You still have a couple days to join if you’d like to contribute, so check it out!
Field trip, field trip, field trip! Yay! I shall bring you all souvenirs. Aka selfies.I’m back. With stories.
There are two main theatrical makeup suppliers in the world. You have Ben Nye (“Ben Nye the makeup guy”) and Kryolan (cry-uh-lawn). Ben Nye is located in New York. Kryolan is located in San Francisco.
Actually, both of them are located globally, but their most popular venues are in said cities.
Whatever. Anyways, my drama class just finished our makeup unit, so as a treat our teacher (who is the absolute BEST) took us out to the city for lunch and fun at Kryolan. It was paradise.
I actually don’t wear makeup. I basically put it on twice a year, but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying it. I think of it as another art form, one that I’m actually semi-good at, for once.
Super fun day.
I think I forgot to mention that they had some new makeup that GLOWS IN THE FUCKING DARK IT. GLOWS. BOTH. IN. THE. DARK. AND. UNDER. A. BLACK. LIGHT.
And it comes in lipstick, blush, eyeshadow, nail polish and hair dye forms. Fuck yeah.
If I ever go to a rave I am so wearing that shit.
ALERT! ALERT! GLOW IN THE DARK MAKEUP!
