|Something everyone in the cosplay community ought to remember.|
At the tender age of 13, Ysabel ~SavingSunlight seems to have a greater understanding of this hobby and a bigger heart than some people who are far older than she is.
"Cosplay is for fun. It's a misunderstood hobby with a good and bad side. If everything is going good in your cosplay, keep it up just dont lose your head in its fictional world. Keep priorities like family and school in order. If things arent great, do not be disheartened from doing what you love. As long as you are having fun, keep going!

Revisiting Naruto cosplay + Road to Ninja Movie!So I've heard of this film for a long while, but never got to watch it for lack of a proper subbed copy/DVD release. (There was that Korean dubbed one that some people watched online, but Naruto has my favorite Japanese voice acting so I didn't want to watch it any other way!)
Sometime last month, some happy news reached our shores — Road to Ninja would be showing at our local cinemas!! I know it's been a while since its first release but I'm glad I waited before resorting to well, less legal ways of watching it! Hahah! Here is a stupid rap I wrote and slapped on a manga panel:
Would Killer Bee be proud of me? HAHAH
I had the honor of being invited to the special advanced screening at Director's Club before it hit the cinemas! Major thanks to Ica and Movie Punch for having us over!
I dressed up as Minato (the Fourth Hokage) and Marien dressed up as

My avatar was a gift from ~JadeLand, and she also made matching Tuxedo Team icons for Kat ~moonlightflight, Miguel ~merkymerx, Nejin ~ceruleanmorning and China !snowpeachdrop. They hold a lot of sentimental value for us so we'd appreciate if you don't steal them! Thank you!
NOTE: I've been asked this a lot so I thought I should explain. China (snowpeachdrop) is still in our company, but no longer indulges in the hobby of cosplay due to other aspects of life that she chooses to dedicate her time to. She deactivated her account because she no longer feels that her work there represents who she is as an artist. That's all there is to it.
