Hi! I'm Cori aka LadyCels (or Cels/Dragonladycels). I'm a costumer/designer/makeup artist from Connecticut. I specialize in Historical Costumes, Moulage Makeup, and Cosplay. I love to make stuff, and I love to teach people to make stuff :3

In this tutorial, I go over the three different types of drafting I employ in my work along with some of the basic tools. Part 2 on how to do a basic sloper coming soon!

You can find the video of the draping of my Eevee costume here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT9ifMUpCuo

the buugeng is a type of s-staff.
to the best of my knowledge, it is used to engage in geometric visual warfare

Accurate.

GEOMETRIC VISUAL WARFARE.

No but can you imagine how distracting and disconcerting it’d be to go up against someone with a weapon like that
You wouldn’t know where the fuck to look and you’d only figure out which part to focus on when it’s buried in your gut



A+ gif usage.

Following up on Becky from Twin-Cosplay calling me out in their video, here’s mine. Since I’m near the tail end of my personal circle of friends to get hit with this, I had to think a bit when it came to passing it on. I’m pretty sure that my friend Kat will in fact kill me for passing it her way but hey. I fell into a waterfall to get pics of her cosplay. Turnabout is fair play. I’m also nominating beleggs and fibonaccisgoldensnare because they’re both pretty damn awesome and I think it’d be a great way to start pushing it through a chunk of the cosplay community that I sorta exist on the periphery of as a photographer. I’m reasonably sure that I would have seen it on Tumblr or Instagram if they had but I may have missed something. Figured it was worth a shot anyway.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go take a very warm shower.
