8 celebrities who look like dolls (without even trying)!

1. Amanda Seyfried
I first saw her in the movie Mean Girls, where she played the small role of Karen Smith, a not-so-smart yet nice blonde who never mistreated the main character (played by Lindsay Lohan) despite being one of the plastics. I didn’t know who Amanda Seyfried was at that time but I liked her in the movie since she was so funny and cute. The above is a picture of her when she dressed up as a mouse for Halloween in the movie.
While not smiling, Amanda almost doesn’t have fine lines around her mouth, making her cheeks a bit full without looking chubby at all. This makes her doll like, along with her full lips, doe-shaped eyes, and oval-shaped face. Hence, without even trying, she’s almost like a doll!
And she looked so much more like one when she wore a wig (short and with full bangs) in the movie “In Time”. Check it out the lovely picture below or see the movie on DVD!

2. Avril Lavigne
Okay, maybe this is a surprise for this list, you may think? Why Avril Lavigne? She may not be the girliest girl out there, but I have always thought she looks like a doll, not the cute young dolls type, but the adult Barbie doll. With really thick blonde hair and white skin, the doll favorite colors pink and green just look so awesome on her, be it for clothes or even for her hair! It actually seems so fun to dress her up.
And the size of her big doll-like eyes became more apparent in her music video “Wish You Were Here.” With extra big hair, big fully made-up eyes, and slightly pink (almost nude) lips, Avril was like a crying Barbie. You should try watching it on YouTube to get what I mean.

Trying out Blogger again!

Have you been to the old before? I used to blog there about radio, movies, media, anime, makeup, and cosplay, but I deleted it because I had moved to my new home at using Wordpress. I did get to backup most of my entries in the blog though, and I might put them up again after some cleanup. 

Are you a blogger too or do you have plans to blog? What platform are you currently using or you are thinking of using? Blogger or Wordpress? 

I wonder which one is better. Can you share with me your thoughts?

I've registered this blogger address again to see what's new with Blogger. Let's see how it goes. ^_^

Preview: Gothic Girl Costume

Gothic Girl Costume - for Cosplay - or Halloween - by Czari Flores
I know that this costume is too late for Halloween, but the character design is so challenging that there were times I couldn’t sleep without drawing the character’s costume, accessories, and props, while figuring out how I could create something like those. Last Wednesday this week then, I bought the materials needed and began making and sewing the costume at that night. It’s almost done now.
Can you guess what character it is? ^_^

My sister’s costume looks so great and I’m excited to see her wearing it. This will be her second time to cosplay in an event. She’ll be dressing up asNanami Konoe from the anime Lamune. If you are interesting in having a similar costume as this, you may order from me.

Meet the 3 Mari Illustrious Makinami cosplayers – uniform, green, and pink plug suit

Mari Illustrious Makinami Cosplay - uniform - green - pink - drama - stairs
We don’t see many cosplaying Mari Illustrious Makinami (from the movie Evangelion:2.0). Maybe because she’s not that known yet since she only appeared in the series’ movie. In other countries outside the Philippines, some would cosplay her but it’s usually only in uniform instead of her plug suits. And that’s probably because it’s the easiest among her three costumes. In the Philippines, there aren’t many cosplayers of her either. It was a great surprise then when three cosplayers of Mari in three different costumes suddenly met at a convention last October 2010. And to think that we three didn’t plan it at all!
Among the three costumes, I like the pink plug suit the most because of the design and because it’s my favorite color. When my mom saw an anime photo of Mari in pink, she thought that it looked so much like me and encouraged me to have it made and wear it in the big convention in October. I was hesitant because there were only a few days left and I wanted to create the costume on my own instead of having it done by a tailor. But mom insisted that my skills aren’t ready yet for creating a plugsuit.
The costume was created then! I didn’t get to sleep the night before the event because of preparing the costume (such as making the headband, the eyeglasses, the gray buttons, the red circles, the battery pack on the back, and the shoes). I had a Make Me Up™ booth on that convention too and I had to prepare a lot of things for it .
I didn’t get to sleep and was so tired, to the point that I felt like I really looked so haggard in the costume!
But no matter how I looked, I didn’t regret being there in the event and being there in my costume, because if I weren’t there the three (3) Mari Illustrious Makinami wouldn’t have been complete! On that day, the famous Filipina cosplayer Jin Joson cosplayed as Mari in uniform. On the other hand, Pocky endorser Jen Ching cosplayed as Mari in green plug suit. And I, Czari Flores, just someone who really loves pink, cosplayed as Mari in pink plug suit. It was the first time I got to meet the two of them.
Here are some photos:
Jin Joson as Mari in uniform,
Czari Flores as Mari in pink,
and Jen Ching as Mari in green
When Jin first came up to me at the event to take a closer look at my costume and to meet me, she looked so familiar but it was the first time I met her. After the event when I looked up her name on the Internet I found out then that she was the famous Filipina cosplayer at DeviantArt. She’s known for cosplaying male characters. ^_^
When I got to meet Jen Ching in her green plug suit, the first thing I did was take a look at what material she used. It was leatherette and I think that it was appropriate for her costume. I was curious so I asked her, “Why did you choose the green plug suit instead of the pink?” And she answered, “It’s a gift to me.” Good thing that the giver chose the green then. Otherwise, the three costumes wouldn’t have been complete! ^_^
Jin’s photographer friends invited us three for an impromptu photo shoot before the sun set.
These costumes and props were created by Filipinos.
The photographers who took these photos are Filipinos.
These three models are Filipinos.
Don’t these make you proud to be a Filipino? Hehe ^_^

Preview: Aisaka Taiga Angel Costume

For cosplaying, the other night I sewed a new costume of Aisaka Taiga (or Tenori Taiga) from the anime Toradora. She had several outfits in the series but I think the most memorable one is her angel costume. It’s just a simple dress but it’s significant in the story. I have had the white and pink fabric already so I sewed it right away in one night.
To complete the costume, next I’ll make are the wings. Maybe I’d look for a wig or just make do with my hair.
Here’s a preview of the costume.
