Basically what the title says. I really need to keep my deviantArt up to date as well because I still need this website. I think I'm not the only one with this problem.
Thing is, most people have moved on to other websites it seems. Mostly Facebook.
But still use deviantArt as well, like me.
For me it's because of this 'holy trinity'
that has occurred with the websites I use for cosplay:
• Tumblr for the progress pictures (and all the randomness that might come by as well)
• Youtube for the videos of our performances, con videos etc.
• And deviantArt to post the hq pictures of our cosplays.
And where does Facebook fit in to this picture? It appears to be the most used medium now, also by me. This is probably why every other site feels so dead lately. >':
Well, Facebook is good for all of these things combined. BUT not exactly the way I want them to be.
• Facebook is good for progress pictures but Tumblr is better because of the quality and the way you can actually make them a set. So they aren't randomized as much through your website.
• Facebook allows you to upload videos. But often people haven't updated Facebook or something else happens, so it's better to host the video on Youtube most of the time. >___<
• Facebook is also great to show the final product of your costume. People can just simply click one button to show they appreciate it without any other obligations or this showing up in some kind of list on their own profile. But the upload quality for images on Facebook is dreadful! So deviantArt is better since you can actually show the photo in hq.
So basically I'm stuck between all of these platforms, having to give them equally as much attention since they are all needed. And I'm pretty sure that, cosplayer or not, more people are having this problem. xDNow on to the actual updates:
and I are now officially living together. We got an apartment.
• I'm busy with my internship at the Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam doing research about Digital Innovation.
won first place in the Cosplay Fashion Show with her Alice cosplay at Nishicon last weekend.
You can see her cosplay here:
• My premium membership is almost over, so I figured I better make a journal now that I still can. D: With all the extra options.
I mostly use the membership for little thumbnails to put in my description to link to xPandorae
Just like I also did above this point.
So I'll miss that.
Uhm... I suppose other than that uh.. me and Sophie are going to Animecon 2014 for sure. We got our tickets and hotel booked and we have new cosplay plans.
Once we've actually started on them we'll probably let you all know which characters we'll be making. My bet is that we'll probably first show them on our Facebook here: www.facebook.com/teamparaluna
But we'll see how I'll use 'The Trinity' + Facebook of websites. 8D xD
