Being the bad guy

Some time ago I had a huge fight with a friend and one thing she said to me and to other people is that the only reason I was trying so hard to fix our friendship was so that I wouldn't be perceived as a "bad person". That really hurt me and really got me thinking.

Our issues weren't about how people perceived me (I couldn't give a fuck about how people perceived me lol) but than again I do not liked to be misunderstood. So I was trying so hard to get my point across to her, telling her how I felt, how what she said or what she had done had hurt me. I'm known for telling the truth; I may say unpleasant things at time but they are for a good reason and they are the truth as I see it. I was hoping that maybe, she would see that I was just trying to make her understand that I was feeling the same way she was feeling too.

In the end, nobody wants to be perceived as a bad person. I like to believe that people are inherently good and that we can chose the behaviours that affect the perceptions of others. In my case, I wanted her to understand me, does that make me a bad person?

Now I've lost a friend I've cherished for a long time, she thinks and tells people I'm a bad person. It keeps resonating in my head,sigh, it's all so hurtful :(

Janna Cosplay Progress: Painting the Breasplate

Hi everyone! I made this video to show my progress on one of the costumes I'm working on, Janna from League of Legends!

The breastplate is made out of Worbla. It's my first time working with this material and the breasplate was the first thing I made. Looking at it now, and having done other things with Worbla, I would have done it differently. Nonetheless, I'm very proud of how it turned out. It's just how cosplayers are, we look at our work; we are satisfied but we wished we could make this or that better hahaha

A lot of my learning material came from the wonderful Kamui Cosplay, the queen of Armor making. I don't think I would have challenged myself without seeing her updates everyday on Facebook :)

I can't wait to finish this costume and show you all the finish product!
