stay away from people who make you feel like you are hard to love
This is the most important thing I have ever read.
Things are not so black and white.
Stay away from people who make you feel like you are hard to love, don’t have your best interest in mind, and are difficult to communicate with. Family, friends, and partners will all hurt you and make you feel like you’re hard to love sometimes, not just for an evening, but for months and years. Sometimes, we can be hard to love for days, or months, or years. Sometimes, we need the person who can help us deliver ourselves from that, and there isn’t any nice way to do it that’s going to keep our self-esteem and self-perception unfazed.
When people make you feel like you’re hard to love, you’ve got to ask yourself, “Are they right?” Not in the defeatist sense, but in the sense of, “Are they right; is there something I can and should improve on?” Love isn’t always free and love isn’t always easy. If someone has the heart to point out your worst traits to you, you have to evaluate whether they’re acting on good faith. It could be that they aren’t trying to put you down, but to bring you up. Constructive criticism can make you feel like you’re hard to love, but can make you a better person if you’ve got the guts to take it and act on it.
Almost there! #cosplay #sewing #shiro #nogamenolife #anime #Animeexpo2014 #firsttimecosplayer

Ragyo Kiryuin preview! < Blumenkranz plays in the distance >
…Of course I realized immediately after I took my makeup off that I’d forgot to put on the collar but oh well. This also does not include the feather boa/cape, but I wanted to be sure to put some preview pics up before Colossalcon!
The wig took forever and a day, but I’m actually really happy with how it turned out. There were a few things I’d really wanted to accomplish with it: It needed to both light up and look good while turned off. It also needed to be portable for wearing around a convention. I find that EL wire tends to not photograph well during the daytime, while LEDs can be too bright if they aren’t diffused. So I ended up packing a hollow foam space with superbright 5050 LEDs, and then diffusing them with wig fiber laid on top of a plexiglass screen. The wig runs off of 4 to 8 AA’s and is monstrously bright - the color is hard to see on cameraphones while in darker spaces, but I’m looking to experiment with the voltage to get a more consistent photo range.
If you aren’t impressed by this glowing wig then don’t talk to me
