Of Shoes and Ships: Explaining Cosplay to Your Parents

At one point in any cosplayer's life, they have encountered resistance from what seems to be one of the most important people in anyone's life - their parents.

I agree that explaining cosplay to your parents can be pretty much like explaining rocket science. Most of the time, your parents are clueless about this hobby and at the first time they hear it, they'll most probably be against it.

In Retirement: Otaku Expo Reload 2015

Just before I jumped into the first semester of my third year in college, I had the most wonderful opportunity to do what I love to do the most before I tackle another year of responsibility and study.

Otaku Expo Reload is one of the known, smaller events that usually make its rounds in social media about once or twice a year. This year, it was held at Megatrade Hall, albeit the area they provided was a little bit cramped, cosplayers and enthusiasts of the like flocked to join the event.

The event occupied only a single hall, surprisingly, because other events for other lifestyle hobbies were also taking place in nearby convention halls. The corridors of the mall were lined with many cosplayers in attractive costumes for the whole day.

Makeup Review: Majolica Majorca Majolook Illuminator in BR799 (Voluptuous)

I've had sudden interest in Japanese makeup products lately, probably because a friend of mine pointed out that I have quite a lot of Korean-based products and teased me that I started to look like a Korean because of my makeup. I don't know why that piqued my interest to branch out to Japanese brands, maybe because I want to look Japanese for a change? (Kidding!)

QT Lens: Hanabi Gold Review + GWYSHOP review

I have no idea why people suddenly turn to me for  their cosplay or beauty-related questions like I'm sort of help desk (which I don't mind at all). But for this week, my Secretary and I were going crazy over a lot of questions being sent into my messages and most of them were questions that were concerned with makeup and contact lenses.

Which is why I have decided to finally write-up a review of a pair of lenses that I bought from GWYSHOP some time ago. A lot of people have been asking what lenses I use for my Kisshou/Benio cosplay, and I get a lot of comments saying that the EOS Blytheye Brown I previously recommended is always so expensive or hard to find.
