Today I really sat down and updated the front page and I hope you all like it! The rules will now be located at the top of the page rather than in the journal, so please give them a read!
As for other changes, I would really like to start featuring some of the cosplayers from the group in the journals from now on; after all, you are all diligently working to make our group a nice place with your pictures and I would like to return the favor by sharing some of that work here on the front page as well as a small interview!
Showcase of the Month PaXingCai
I chose PaXingCai for the first showcase because I've always admired her attention to detail on her costumes as well as the well constructed costumes she produces! The pictures are always really great to see because the photos are well taken and the settings really fit the character! It's clear a lot of care went into becoming the characters. Interview with PaXingCai How long have you been into the Touhou series?
I’ve been into Touhou since 2008, I got into it via a friend cosplaying it and multiple people linking me pictures of Meiling telling me that I should cosplay her. I watched a few videos of it, read fan comics and then started into the games. I’ll be the first to admit I’m not very good at them but that’s why people upload their games to youtube Who is your favorite character?
I’d have to say Sakuya. I like to clean and have a flat chest so it’s easy to empathize with her.How long have you been cosplaying Touhou?
Since Otakon 2008 where I cosplayed Meiling.Do you have a favorite Touhou costume you like to wear?
I really like to wear Kasen. I put so much work into her outfit and it is something I feel really proud of. Do you have a favorite picture taken of you in a Touhou cosplay?paxingcai.deviantart.com/art/M… paxingcai.deviantart.com/art/C… paxingcai.deviantart.com/art/Q… paxingcai.deviantart.com/art/A…Any words of advice for other Touhou cosplayers?
