Name of Image

I decided to create a F.A.Q journal (frequently answered questions) as I have noticed that I keep getting the same questions. I love answering your questions guys so please feel free to write your own questions in the comments below. This journal will be linked on my front page under the link "F.A.Q". I'm hoping this will help people get the answers they want as quickly as possible!

Photography questions

What camera do you shoot with?
I use a Canon EOS 450D with a EFS 18mm-55mm (0.25m/0.8ft) lens.
I updated my camera to a Canon EOS 550D with an EFS 18mm-55mm (0.25m/0.8ft) lens.

What software do you use to edit your pictures?
I use Photoshop CS3

How did you get so good?!
I'm really not that good. It takes lots of practice to get to a good standard of photography. Just take your camera out with you and shoot whatever you can. Practice makes perfect after all.

Can you look at my work and tell me how good it is?
I really don't think I'm a good enough photographer to judge your work, I'm sorry.

How did you edit (X) picture?
Via photoshop, if your really interested though I can go into detail on what effects I used on a photo.

Think there's a question that should be here? Ask it below and I'll answer and put it here.

Video questions

What software do you use to edit your videos?
I use iMovie 09.
I updated to Final Cut Pro X with Compressor 4.

What camera do you use to film with?
I use a Samsung F30 Memory Card Camcorder (black).
I updated my camera to a Canon EOS 550D with an EFS 18mm-55mm (0.25m/0.8ft) lens.

What song did you use in (X) video?
Check the description, most of the time I credit the song. Either that or the end of the video might have credits.

How did you do (X) effect?
If you search youtube for effects I've created it'll show lots of tutorials on how you can create the effect too.

Can you watch my video pleeeeease?
I get this a lot. I'm sorry but I get so many video requests to watch that I don't have enough time in the day. I'm sorry.

Can you star in my video?
I'm sorry I'm not doing video requests atm.

Think there's a question that should be here? Ask it below and I'll answer and put it here.

Cosplay questions

Where did you get (X)'s wig from?
I buy all my wigs from ebay. I just search for what kind of wig I want them check the quality and the seller feedback.

Where did you get (X)'s costume from?
Most of the time I use existing clothing to create cosplays or if not create from scratch.

I'm doing an (X) cosplay too, care to give me some tips?
Urm, just try your best? ^_^'

How did you style your Canada curl?
I started with some thick wire and cut it to the size I wanted. I then covered the wire with hair extensions in the same colour of the wig. I left part of it not covers so I could weave it into the netting of the wig. While wrapping the extensions around the wire I used clips and covered it in lots of hairspray. The wire is bent at the same time into the shape of the curl that you want. I hope that helps.
Update! I've made a video tutorial! Click the www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWql9Z…

How did you make your Shiro cosplay?
The suit is a nude colour morph suit that I bought off ebay (the seller has since shut their shop now, I bought it back in 2010) as at the time I'd only started to learn how to sew cosplays from scratch. I got my friend to paint the red pattern on me while I was wearing the suit. We used Dylon red fabric paint and a flat head paint brush so the lines were even. I cut off the feet parts, with spandex you don't need to hem. The wig is just a long, white wig which I cut and styled myself. The collar is made from Plastazote.The gloves are made out of a seude material that I found spare in my mums wardrobe. I made the pattern myself and sewed it together. The inside is padded to give it shape and the outside has small, stitch details. Belts were used for the wrap around bits of the costume.

Please cosplay this!?
If you demand a cosplay I should do I won't do it. I like to pick my own cosplays, that way I enjoy myself more and enjoy being a character I love. I do however like to hear different cosplay ideas people have for me, it's interesting to know what people think would suit me.

Think there's a question that should be here? Ask it below and I'll answer and put it here.

What do you do?

Would the way you did your Canada curl work for the Italies curls as well?

I have a question for you!
I hope that I'm not bothering you.. I seem to post on your page too much. ^^;

Anyway, since I'd like to improve my Canada cosplay for when I wear it again at Midlands Expo, I was wondering where you got/how you made your glasses for your Canada cosplay?

Since I don't really like mine, they don't look much like Canada's glasses..
So I was wondering if you'd let me know where you got yours from or if you made them, how you did it. :D

By the way, Happy New Year!

(I wasn't originally sure if I should post this here or on your profile, but since it wouldn't let me post it on your profile for some reason.. here it goes.)

It did post on my profile but thats ok. I actually bought
a pair of cheap glasses from Poundland, smashed the lenses
out with a hammer then used some pliers to cut the tops off.
I hope that helps and Happy New Year ^_^

Really? Sorry! :iconotlplz:
It didn't seem to be sending and I refreshed to see if it had posted and everything and it didn't show up. Maybe it just took it's time.

Really?
Wow, I would have never thought of doing that!
I'll have to try that myself if you don't mind.
Thanks! :D

Well I guess the two main things you need are a camcorder and an editing program.
Your computer should already have a simple editing program with it (Either Windows
Movie maker for PC or iMovie for Mac) These programs making editing video footage
easy but then again you can't do any amazing effects with them (great for starting out though)

Are you a boy or a girl?
I get this one too. It's a compliment when I'm crossplaying because that means I'm doing it well, but I've gotten it from people who can clearly see my whole page including my non-crossplaying self which is a little insulting but I don't take it too seriously, I think it's pretty funny.

I must say I have wondered about your curl, it is so perfect. I should get around to fixing mine.. it isn't really right but that's how it was when I bought it and I don't want to mess with it too much incase I mess it up completely but I really do want to fix it, or maybe I should just get a better wig.

Ahaha sorry.. I ended up ranting on a bit there ^^;

Aww thats alright, don't worry about ranting.
I think your canada wig is fine though, it looks really
good quality too ^-^

Okay! I just tend to type too much and then worry that it bothers people ^^; But I'm glad you don't mind!
Thank you! :D I'm glad that you think so. I'd just like to fix the curl since it isn't really the right shape ^^; The way that it's made makes it kind of difficult, but hopefully I'll find a way!

LittleGeeky Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2010
I answered a question on the curl in my F.A.Q, hopefully it
might give you an idea on how I did it and what way would
work for you. Good luck.

Hehe yeah, thanks for that!
I hope it'll be of use, I'm not quite sure how I'll tackle this curl x___x Though I think I want to try and fix the one that's already there before I try and make another one for it.
Wish me luck?
