A quick note on color: If you peep at the underlayers of his skirt when he falls, you’ll see they’re white in comparison to the dress. So yes, the dress is in fact light pink and not white. actually this was just an excuse to make that gif

#ahh I’m so glad someone took the time to analyse it like this#I’ve seen a lot of reactions in the tag saying people found it boring but#I’m actually finding it really interesting?#that review is a good example why#(spoiler alert tho)#idk I think people are looking at the idol theme and dismissing it as shallow#but it’s really not as lighthearted as it looks

I’m so glad you agree! I really don’t like the art style, but so far Shounen Hollywood contains a lot more depth than I was expecting (then again, my original expectation was pretty faces + no depth). I’m looking forward learning more about the other boys and seeing how the story pans out!

Going High-Res

I recently redid the theme to support high-resolution images, so from now on my sets and gifs will be at least 700px wide. This way we can more easily ogle bishies the outfits can be seen in higher detail.

Some images in previous posts may appear a little blurry on the blog. ༼ ºل͟º ༽ But they’ll still look fine on the Tumblr interface and in reblogs!

Shounen Hollywood: The Highly Coveted Mike Pedro Copernicus Sneakers
"Kakeru is the much desired reproduction of the Copernicus sneakers. No one really goes into the details of what makes it so necessary to own one. With the right marketing and enough subliminal advertising, anyone can come to the decision that they need to get an overpriced pair of shoes.  You can say the same about idols, the more they push them on the spotlight, the more you’re forced to believe in their made-up personalities and buy into the fantasy." —Hachimitsu

Q&A: Cosplay for shy people?

What are your opinions and suggestions for people who want to cosplay but are shy and do not want to attract that much attention to themselves?

I recently received an email message from someone asking this question, and I thought this might be something worth discussing on the Otaku Couture blog itself.

Of course, my suggestion is casual cosplay. This is the bread and butter of what I do! There are no rules—essentially, you’re just using characters as inspiration. You can make your portrayal as interpretive or as accurate as you like.

If you’re not sure where to start, try beginning with something small. Full-out cosplay usually calls for brightly colored wigs, layers upon layers of makeup, and a totally decked-out outfit—but representing a character doesn’t mean you have to go all-out. For instance, recently I’ve been super into side ponytails a la BroCon’s Hinata Ema:

side ponytail hairstyle worn by Hinata Ema of Brothers Conflict

Basically, I throw my hair into a bun overnight, and by morning my pin-straight hair is wavy and voluminous. Then I just pull it up into a high side pony. ^^ If I’m feeling particularly ambitious, I’ll even split my bangs like hers. It makes my face look slimmer so I like it haha

It’s really that easy—there’s no dying, sewing, witchcraft, or fancy-shamcy-who-knows-whats-it that has to be done so it’s perfect for lazy people. Just ask yourself, “What can I do with what I have? What can I do that won’t cost a fortune? What do I do that won’t take forever to make? What can I easily do now?

You can also try pulling inspiration using a single, defining accessory. Not gonna lie: I bought a solid red pashima solely because Mikasa Ackerman religiously wears one, and I have a pair of blue studs that I painstakingly chose from many other shades of blue simply because it perfectly matched Ciel Phantomhive’s earrings.

I got the scarf from a little shop NYC for $4 (after some haggling haha). You can find a lot of street stands that sell these pashimas for super cheap. Just be warned though that the quality matches the low price!

The stud earrings are from Turkish seller biesge on Etsy. The ones I bought are the 8mm cobalt blue stud earrings. They’re just a tad bigger than Ciel’s, but they perfectly match my Nails Inc. polish in flammable so all is forgiven. (❁´◡`❁)

If you want to try something a little more representative than simply a hairstyle or accessory, then it’s time to get creative. That’s when I’ll wear something like what you see in my outfit collages. To be honest, there’s really no set method to how I create them, so I’ll have to think some more about it; I’ll write up a “Stealth Cosplay 101” guideline sometime in the near future. In the mean time, please feel free to use my Polyvore sets to help you create your own character-inspired looks.

I’ve never made ice cream before, so I did you guys a favor and found this recipe elsewhere. This ice cream mixes the salty taste of sea salt with the sweet tastes of cream and sugar. Apparently, Kingdom Hearts II director Tetsuya Nomura had this ice cream on a trip to the Tokyo Disneyland Resort and liked it so much he decided to work with Disney to put it in the games. The characters of Kingdom Hearts II can often be seen eating and talking about this delicious salty-sweet dessert. Enjoy it with your best buddy at twilight.


Ingredients:2 eggs
2 c. milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 c. heavy whipping cream
sea salt to taste
blue food coloring (optional) ice pop molds (optional)

Directions: Separate the eggs into two good sized bowls and beat the egg whites until stiff. Mix the egg yolks and sugar until thick. Slowly bring milk to boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Pour hot milk into yolk/sugar mixture and mix well. Pour milk/yolk/sugar mixture back into pot and heat on medium until thicker to make a custard. Do not boil. Pour custard in with beaten egg whites and mix well. Add sea salt (keeping adding salt until it tastes salty sweet). Put mixture in fridge to cool. Once cool, add cream, vanilla and coloring to mixture. Freeze, following your ice cream maker’s instructions. If you wish, get some ice pop molds. Spray the inside of these with very little PAM spray (or something similar). Then pour the ice cream into the molds right after it comes out of the ice cream maker. Pop the lid on and the stick in and freeze for at least two hours.

So uh…

Recently a guy came to fix the light in my closet, and as he was leaving I felt like he was giving me a weird/uncomfortable look. Then I realized he’d seen the sweater boxes that I use to hold small accessories:

He was probs like, “wth is this girl doing with a picture of half-naked shotas in her closet?!” lol I feel like I should be embarrassed but nOPE NOT SORRY FOR BEING AN OBSESSED FANGIRL (́一◞౪◟一‵)
