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."

Kenshin and Tomoe: A Sheath by behindinfinity
Kenshin and Tomoe: A Sheath
"Now you need a sheath, to hold back your madness."


Tomoe had such a beautiful role in Kenshin's life. This is my favourite arc in the manga and really appreciated this OVA because we get to know the person behind Hitokiri Battousai, and what led to him becoming who he is.

This is the third installment of our Kenshin and Tomoe photo series. We've still got a lot coming!

Kenshin and Tomoe: When He Sleeps
"When I look at him sleeping like that, he's just a boy. Not even of age yet."

"I'm sorry. I bragged that I would never kill a civilian and now look at me. If you had come any closer I would have—"


Second part of our photo series for Kenshin and Tomoe. The lines I quoted were from the manga, which we had used as reference as well since this scene went a little differently in the OVA. Either way, it is a scene that stands out in my mind to this day. Tomoe was trying to understand the one who murdered her fiancé, and though no one was there to pretend for, she was offering up her own shawl to protect him from the cold.

"You made the bloody rain fall."


Here's the first part of the long sequence of photos we did for Kenshin and Tomoe. We started out by taking portraits of them as they were right before they met.

This has been a dream shoot for the three of us for some time. I was really happy when Kaika told me she wanted to remake her very first cosplay, which was Tomoe, and she even came here all the way from Singapore to be able to do this with us! 
We hope you'll stay tuned for the rest of this photo series!

Big Hero 6: Hiro Hamada by behindinfinity

Ever since the first promotional images came out for the Big Hero 6 movie, I was told a lot that I resemble Hiro, so I should try cosplaying him. As much as I already really liked what I saw from the trailers (especially the Japanese version which was more emotional), I wanted to wait to see the whole thing first to really commit myself to it. After finally watching BH6, I could then honestly say that I loved it and I decided to pursue this cosplay as a tribute to it! <3

Fun fact: I used a piece of toasted seaweed to create the tooth gap for this shoot! :lol:

Big Hero 6: Little Genius by behindinfinity

After watching and coming to love the Big Hero 6 movie, I finally got my Hiro cosplay together! :D Ever since the first trailers for BH6 came out, I had been told a lot that I resemble Hiro, but I wanted to see the movie first to know if I'd want to do the cosplay. And I loved it!! Beautiful animation, lovable characters, engaging storytelling; but the most poignant factor for me was the bond between Hiro and Tadashi.

I shared parts of my progress for this cosplay on my Facebook page: 
 hand-painting the shirt / wig and tooth gap / a short video

:bulletblue: More pictures on my Tumblr photo set — behindinfinity.tumblr.com/post…

I waited until after watching BH6 to really put everything together so that I could be motivated by the feelings that the movie gave me. Hiro is relatively simple in design, but I poured in a lot of love and effort into details like the shirt which I handpainted, styling the wig to look like what I saw in the movie, and using makeup to emphasize my features and look more like Hiro. Can't wait for my friends to join me for this cosplay!

There are also pieces of so many fandoms in this photo, hahah! What can you identify? :)

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. :)
