Fantastic resource for storyboarding! Gotta look over these myself too :)
This thing is like a storyboarding bible. I’m gonna sit down and take an hour to pore over every bit of it.
Hey, my name is PipPip, and I’m here to tell you guys a little something about my sad!stuck cosplay experience at Anime California
So for Day 2 and 3 of this convention, I decided to be dead Tinkerbull and want to be human Cronus. These cosplays took some time and effort to put together and I use to love bringing these characters to life. At first I thought it was a cool concept and a unique cosplay— something that would get a few aww’s here and there. But I was wrong. Throughout the weekend, I was slapped around and abused by people who found my cosplays sad.
That was their only excuse for assaulting me. I made them sad. I told these people repeatedly to stop but my attempts at ceasing their actions were futile. At one point, I was even kicked in the back of my leg while I was having a conversation with several of my friends who were all witnesses to this person’s heinous act. I would have gone straight to the con ops about the situation to report the problem if it wasn’t the last day of the con and that person had already left the hotel.
Later that day, the person who had kicked me, messaged me saying “did i hurt your feelings today???????” Clearly they didn’t realize they had hurt a little more than JUST my feelings. They damaged me PHYSICALLY. They damaged me EMOTIONALLY. They even damaged my spirit to do sad’stuck cosplay EVER AGAIN for a convention.
PLEASE, LET THIS SERVE AS A REMINDER TO ALL CON GOERS: IF SOMEONE IS COSPLAYING A CHARACTER THAT MAKES YOU UPSET, THAT DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO HIT/ INSULT/ SHAME THEM FOR IT. THAT IS INCREDIBLY RUDE, EXTREMELY UNACCEPTABLE, AND YOU WILL BE REPORTED IMMEDIATELY. IF YOU THINK THAT’S OK IN ANY WAY, YOU NEED TO GROW UP AND LEARN THAT NOT EVERYONE IS OUT TO PLEASE YOU.
I recently received word through Facebook that this is one of the big reasons why some of my friends are scared to cosplay at conventions in the first place. When I heard about this, it really got to me. This is all the more reason to report anybody who assaults/ insults cosplayers for their own immature reasoning. By doing this, it will create a safer environment for new cosplayers entering the community.
Be a responsible cosplayer/ con goer and please report those bad eggs so people that are much more deserving of attending, may join us happily without being afraid of what might happen to them. Thank you.
It’s people that that who give the fandom a bad name on top of making people scared to cosplay, mine is just a pirate stuck but I don’t want to cosplay it much any more due to the bad rap people give homestuck’s from this shit! Also the people who lash out at the characters who are being cosplayed. I heard a story of a feff getting crap and getting beat with a soda bottle because the person used the excuse “I’m acting in character.” But despite the Feffs protests and asking politely to stop she was continuously hit with the bottle and glared at by the group who was being mean, there are other stories I have heard from the cons in my area that continue to blow my mind on how rude people can be to their own fandom! Your costumes are awesome and well done and you did not deserve the shit you got for it.

I wanted to thank you guys again for being such lovely people and decided to make this for you. I don’t know if it’ll help anyone, as you can see, I struggle with explanations and this doesn’t cover a lot of this matter (I’d have to write books in order to deal with everything), but I did get several requests to do something like this, so there you go!
If you’re interested, I can make a second part about how I draw full body gestures. If you have a specific question etc, feel free to ask, just be aware that I’m the worst teacher.
Thank you guys so much again, you all mean a lot to me…!
Do you also want to create ALL THE ARMOR? I’ve released a book!
5$ and I’ll teach you everything you need to know! :)

Regular requests are open (free art people!) so just message me or contact me on DA, ^^
