Macaron: quest for perfection....kinda

Konbanwa~ quick post here~~
So recently I wanted to make macarons, french macarons ^.^~ I've made them in the past and they turned out so-so... When I wanted to make them for my mum's birthday though they turned out into macookies or summat :-/ completely and totally wrong XDDD didn't take any photos but yup, they turned more into cookies...
So I wanted to improve, and went on a quest to make the perfect macaron *・゜゚・*:.。..。.:*・'(*゚▽゚*)'・*:.。. .。.:*・゜゚・* I know, lame, I could have spent my time working on my next cosplay or studying or writing a review or summat. But the macarons really winded me up so I wanted to make them perfect, PERFECT ^J^ (*insert here Hetalia Russia's kolkolkol*) 

So the point of my rant is I wanted to share how I made the ideal macaron, might not be interesting to you but if you're bored already, then just look at the perfect ones at the top of this post and drool :D

I'll probably update this post or make a sequel, but here goes...

1st Cosplay journey: Kuriyama Mirai

For the photos from the shoot click here!

Haii~~★~(◡‿◕✿)

So I mentioned on how I wanted to talk about how I made the cosplay and all that jazz so here it is ^^;

I think it was around last year december that I wanted to do cosplaying ^^ and especially prepare it for a manga con that was in March hehe...thought of a lot of other characters initially but decided to do Mirai as she was do-able and cute (*^◯^*)




I ordered the wig last year November, this kickstarted the cosplay initially as it felt like I had something to work towards you know? Saying "I wanna do it" wasn't good enough for me and I felt the need to actually do summat first to prove that "I'm gonna make it happen" to myself, if you are ever in doubt of whether to do something; Just Do It, like the Nike slogan.

At the start of the year I made a plan and followed it. I started to make the sword first...I looked at many tutorials before making it, and I have learnt that ridges of the cardboard should go UP and NOT ACROSS...ok, just a note for me in the future... 
Then I moved onto the costume,  and worked on it everyday. I learnt a lot from costume making, fyi, I do sewing so I did know where to start ^^;; however, I learnt a lot of things I didn't know, like the thing about bias bindings and how sticking them down with fabric glue was a little messy...anyhow! Lesson learnt! (´◠ω◠`) the pleats on the skirt too, I know now not to do pleats that are TOO large XD



I guess accessories I got next, mostly free because of a gift card for Claires~ (an accessory shop) gold ring and whatnot.

Needless to say I got my whole cos finished for March, was so happy~ It was also amazing at the con!!! First time ppls wanted to take pictures of my work (my cosplay) and was really happy that hard work paid off ;~; 

Though, I thought the makeup could've been better XD looks really bad in this pic, I was an beginner at this XDD the sword bent in half too T~T was still use-able ☆〜(ゝ。∂)
dat eye makeup tho XD

Then it was only a few months later that I had my shoot, it took a while because of school work and all that, but thank goodness the weather was pretty good that day! Wanted to add, I changed the makeup so that it looked better hehe X3

And the photos came out great! I want to thank my cousin: @akarimochi0523 (on instagram) for taking the photos ^^ Very pretty some of them~

Here are two really good offtakes she took (੭ु ˃̶͈̀ ω ˂̶͈́)੭ु⁾⁾


So that's basically it ^^~! I think I'll add that I need to look at the amount of cloth I need before buying because I bought waaay too much, budget calculated to a resonable price tho (´・ω・`)

 Oh and one more~

Thanks for reading~!★~(◠ω◕✿)

etude house surprise stick concealer ~review~ #1 light beige

Ohayou!

So this is my first beauty review, I decided to give my view on the product and hope this will be informative >.< I think I got #1 light beige. I'd actually got given this from my cousin sooooo yep XD




Packaging

It's quite cute and versatile to carry around in my opinion, though, some people might think there's nothing suprising about the packaging but I differ (^_^;) It is made of hard plastic and is quite small at around 11cm tall.

[Tutorial] Kuriyama Mirai Blood Sword

Just a repost from tumblr that I wrote a while ago ^^ might help those cosplaying ^.^:



This is my first time cosplaying and an experience of me making this sword ^_^. I know there are other awesome tutorials on how to make weapons for cosplaying/cosplay like this but this is just my experience/take on making a cosplay sword for a low budget (:D), and I am sorry if it’s imperfect…it is my first time doing this…
You will need:
Materials:
-Corrugated cardboard
-Masking tape
-Red (meatallic) spray paint 100ml
Equipment:
-pencil
-craft knife
-newspaper
-mask for spray painting
-paper
-ruler

Method:
1) Draw out a sketch of the blood sword, use many references…mine was 95cm long for my height (160cm). It might have to be longer or shorter for your height but this really depends…
image
2) Cut the paper sword template out.
3) Use the paper sword template to cut the sword out from corrugated cardboard (Best if the ridges of the cardboard are going up instead of across your sword, so from the picture below:
image
ridges of the cardboard are going up, not across the sword ( from the directions in the picture) and that makes it less sturdy (and I am an idiot for doing this XD). I’ve just taped it with super glue and masking tape because I cut the sword out in parts which makes it kind of less sturdy.

4) Wrap the whole sword with masking tape. Do this neatly or else it would look unfinished when spray painted with (which happened to mine .___.)
image
4)i) (optional but may make the sword better) when masking taping, press the edges of the blade to make tapered edges, this will give the sword a more sword-ish look.
4)ii)(optional again) Paper mache. I’ve not done this but apparently it does give a better effect, might try next time.
5) Spray paint time!! Just lay out newspaper in a well ventilated (preferably outside) place the sword on top of the newspaper and follow the instructions of the spray paint and spray! (*important note* DO NOT BREATH THIS IN, IT IS HARMFUL.) O.O
6) And this is what you should end up with…
image
so proud of myself lol XD
not bad for a beginner hmm… the handle on mine is a bit flimsy and fragile, should have cut out the ridges going up the cardboard instead of across… ._______. but I think it turned out pretty good ^u^~ considering it’s my first time ^^
I didn’t need to buy anything (except the spray paint which was around £3.50 from B&Q), cardboard which I picked up, and masking tape was already available… there’s always the art rooms at school which contain all the supplies :D
well that’s really it ^_^ Hoped that kind of helped, and good luck with cosplaying! (which I am still working on ^^;;)
