Quote of the Indistinct Time Period

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 don’t lose your head in its fictional world. Keep priorities like family and school in order. If things aren’t great, do not be disheartened from doing what you love. As long as you are having fun, keep going!

It’s a different kind of happy-high when you are among fellow cosplayers but at the end of the day, it only matters if you enjoyed yourself or not. It’s not about popularity or pageviews, having fans or not, being better than others... no. It’s about expressing yourself through a character you love and sharing it with others.

Hopefully, you’ll make friendships that will last even when the costumes are faded, wigs worn out and cameras stop flashing."

Big Hero 6: Nerds by behindinfinity
Big Hero 6: Nerds
"Hiro, I found candy just for us!"
"Leave me out of it, nerd!"


A couple of nerds finding Nerds while searching for gummy bears. True story. ^^; 
We were moving to another location during the shoot, but the two of us
wanted to drop by the nearby supermarket to grab some snacks before we
left. I was craving for gummy bears but we found Nerds first! Hamadorks
instincts kicked in.

Big Hero 6: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas by behindinfinity
Big Hero 6: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
With a title like Big Hero 6, people usually don't expect the movie to have such a strong emotional side to it. Here's a post-Christmas BH6 post, brought to you by the song Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, which always makes any day feel aNYTHING BUT MERRY. "Through the years / We all will be together / If the Fates allow" That third line always gets to me.

At least I waited until after most of the holiday festivities to share this. Happier photos to follow, I promise!

I imagine that even if Hiro acts tough about them losing their mom and dad when he was three years old, it still messes him up sometimes how much he can miss them with hardly any clear memories. Hiro usually isn’t into physical reassurance, but he won’t refuse during times he really needs to be comforted. Christmas time is always especially diificult, but Tadashi does his best to be there for his little brother.

How do you deal with haters?

Fri Jun 13, 2014, 4:25 PM by behindinfinity:iconbehindinfinity:


I got this as a question on my Tumblr, and I felt I could share my thoughts here as well because it seems it's something a lot of people can relate to. I hope this comes to helpful to any of you guys reading.

I’m certain there are people who dislike me. Some I come to know through whisperings because I have eyes everyyyyywheeeeere.

However, I don’t feel the need to acknowledge them or do anything about it unless they are causing any real harm, especially to people I care about.


There is a popular quote that I like referencing for this topic, which gets the message across in a charming way:

You can be a juicy, ripe peach and there’s still going to be someone who doesn’t like peaches, so you can either submit to someone’s criticism of you, or you can get on with the business of being your own amazing self who attracts other like-minded people that appreciate you.” — Dita Von Teese

I used to be affected if I found out someone didn’t like me, but I’ve come to learn that people can have very irrational reasons for hating someone.

Sometimes it is simply because your personalities and tastes are not compatible. And that’s fine and normal. 

Other times, they can take a part of you and twist it and build up their own negative perception and convince themselves that they are right to hate you. But it doesn’t mean that what they think about you is true. Their image of you that they force upon themselves could be due to their own insecurities.

Although I sometimes say this jokingly, I find that in certain cases it’s not just simply “Haters gonna hate.” I also dislike it when people jump to the conclusion, “They just hate you because they’re jealous.” While it can be true at times, it’s not the ultimate answer. Let’s be real here. It is not surprising for people to feel a sense of dislike towards someone who is truly being a terrible human being. Did you do something that merits you being considered a terrible human being? If the answer is no, then good.


Here’s what you can do: If someone openly throws some harsh words at you, take a deep breath and try to objectively consider what they have to say. Maybe you can ask yourself things like:

:bulletorange: Are they actually trying to offer constructive criticism but are  lacking in tact and eloquence? If they seem interesting or intelligent enough, try to converse with them to understand. Maybe you’ll learn something new. If they are just bigots or trolls, pity them for a second, don’t dignify them with an answer or any more of your time, and move on. Be the better person.

:bulletorange: Are they pointing out something you may have done wrong that you weren’t aware of? Do you think they are right? If they are, be humble enough to consider that you might have something to improve on. If they’re not, then just don’t mind them. If someone is really set on disliking you, you’re the last person they will allow to change their minds.


These are just general ideas, because it always depends on the context. But in the end, what’s important is that if you truly believe you did nothing wrong, then disregard them and walk away with your head held high. Hopefully you aren’t a sociopath.

You can’t please every single person in the world. And that’s okay. The people whose happiness and opinions should matter the most are your own, and those of the people you care about and care for you. If you focus on being your own fantastic self, you can feel sorry for your haters because they lost the opportunity to get to know the wonderful person you are.

Jin!

Avatar Info

It doesn't bend air or anything, but I still think it's pretty cool.

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! :D

:iconbehindinfinity::iconmoonlightflight::iconmerkymerx::iconceruleanmorning::iconsnowpeachdrop:


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. :)
