((Debating on cosplaying You this weekend for asks. Very slight possibility of Kevin. I’ll update as soon as I know my schedule is free.))
My main blog that is full of about 70% Tolkien related posts. The rest is cosplay, video games, and some other things I enjoy. I primarily follow other blogs under this name.
Personal cosplay blog full of cosplays I’ve made either for myself or others. It also has videos of convention panels I’ve hosted or cosplay competitions I’ve been in. It shall be open to cosplay commissions coming this fall.
Balin from “The Hobbit”/Tolkien lore rp blog. It is half and half when it comes to book lore and movie lore for this particular muse. It is my primary rp blog. Theme still under construction.
Lobelia Bracegirdle/Sackville-Baggins from Tolkien lore rp blog. This rp character’s timeline and history is altered slightly, but I try to remain true to the character’s personality. (More lore specific rp upon request.)
Dáin II Ironfoot from “The Hobbit”/Tolkien lore rp blog. Fairly newer rp blog, still decided some headcanons, but majority is fleshed out. Personality based from what is gathered of lore.
Cosplay Askblogs (ALL Permanent Hiatus)
Death from Supernatural askblog. Along with reaper Tessa, Bobby’s Reaper, a few OC reapers. Also, War from SPN as well. Once in a while, an update or pictures are posted. Very rarely on this blog.
Various characters from Supernatural on this askblog. Dean, John, Castiel, Jo, and Ruby. Scarcely on this blog anymore.
A Welcome to Night Vale askblog that’s based in the town of Desert Bluffs and primarily hosted by Kevin. One in a while, there will be Cecil or Marcus hosting it. Every so often, there are updates. Rarely are there live asks anymore.
strextreme said: How did you do the bottom teeth for your Kevin cosplay?
((Same as the top teeth. I get fake nails you can cut with scissors from any store that has basic cheap cosmetics. Clip them to shape, then use a denture glue to keep them in place. Only last for an hour at most. After that, you’ll have to keep reapplying denture glue.))
Let me elaborate on a post I made recently involving one cosplay getting more notes than another.
I’ve been receiving anon hate/harsh criticism for it.
"You should be just happy to get any attention."
"You’re just looking for attention."
"Your post is discouraging to others starting out in cosplay."
There were a few more lines with more vulgar and/or bitter choices of wording, but I’ve already set those on ignore.
My Kevin cosplay is thrifted and the only thing I did was make-up and altered it to my size. Few hours of effort, that’s it.
My Thorin cosplay (second photo) was endless hours/days of sleepless nights. Blisters, bleeding, crying, sweating. Every free moment was working on it. After work, went straight to working on it. Everything is made from scratch (save for the key I wore around my neck.)
For someone who’s been in the cosplay community for nearly twelve years and competed competitively for five, it is heart breaking for me to have a cosplay completely overlooked by another that took so little effort. Yes I am bitter. Yes I am looking for attention, but for a cosplay I poured my heart and soul into.
It’s like, you’re an artist. You draw something that you half traced or nearly copied from some show or something. Then you make something completely from your own mind on your own that’s elaborate and gorgeous. Now, say you post both on tumblr and the one you spent little effort on gets more praise than the latter. It’s a terrible feeling.
Sad fact that this cosplay of mine…
Gets more likes and attention than this cosplay of mine…
