FFX-2 Yuna Cosplay: Makeup and Hair Tutorial

No Comments »






So judging from the title of this post, you may notice I did a tutorial on how to be Yuna from Final Fantasy X-2. I used to play Final Fantasy, but wasn't very good at the game (from what I remember). I always preferred the game play in Kingdom Hearts over Final Fantasy. However, I do know that there are a lot of memories from playing this game and it brings a sense of nostalgia for many.

The reason I decided to do a tutorial on her look was because one I had this costume for around 2 years and second she is overall a great person to cosplay as! I know this tutorial is late for Halloween, but I think this tutorial can help you get ready for Anime Conversions.

I know Yuna has blue and green eyes. However, I do not have blue or green lenses and I decided to substitute the lenses for my grey ones instead.

I think this look is quite suitable for everyday minus the lashes of course! It isn't too dramatic and it really gives off that innocent appearance.



I do hope you find the tutorial useful and interesting! I tried my best to film and edit this video as fast as I could with my busy school schedule. I hope you find my efforts in this video worth it.

Birthday Present from Lynn (Pewpewpichu)

No Comments »

My birthday was last Thursday (October 20th!). I wonder if you guys can guess how old I am now? Anyways, I didn't do much for it because I wanted to save money. As well as I am not a big celebration type of person. I do not expect much for my birthday because I honestly don't have many people to celebrate it with.

I received a surprise from Lynn (Pewpewpichu on youtube) a few days before my birthday and it was presents from her! She absolutely did not tell me that she was sending me presents. She really did surprise me. I kind of teared up, since we have only known each other for a short amount of time. However, she treats me so well. I am honestly very appreciative to have a friend like her.

As you can tell, Luna was excited too!


OH MY GOSH! She knows me well. I always complained to her that I should go out and buy more eyeshadows for tutorials. However, it might be a waste since I don't wear eyeshadows! Now, I have more to use for future tutorials :]

She calls me her twin since we have quite similar taste! Her card made me tear up...yes I am a softy.


Look! Hello Kitty + Real Kitty!





I honestly can't wait to try out all the products (I already tried the Mac Blush in Pink Swoon and I absolutely love it!). I can't believe she sent me these products. Thank you Lynn, seriously. You do not know how much this present means to me. <3

Today I received a package from the lovely Lisa (mimiheartsme on youtube!) She is such a sweet girl and always so fun to talk to. Please if you are not subscribed to her please check her youtube channel out! She has amazing tutorials and hauls

So, I ripped open the package because I was so excited! I am so happy with everything she got me. Seriously, I don't think she realizes it. I even squealed when I saw the letter (didn't I tell you guys I love receiving letters?)

I can't wait to try the ZA foundation because I heard so much about it from other bloggers (chaigyaru and xiaxue). I was scared that the shade wouldn't match me, but it looks like it would be a perfect match! I will def. report back to you guys on this product. :]

This jewelry! Does she know me that well? It is a style I would totally wear. I am so happy it is a bracelet because I wanted to go buy some simple but pretty bracelets and I didn't find anything I like. However, this bracelet I love it! It is simple and still gorgeous. I am glad it is hypoallergenic (I am actually allergic to a lot of metals), so I can wear often!

Thank you so much Lisa! For taking the time out of you busy schedule to get me these items. I honestly really appreciate it. I am glad to met you and I hope we will be able to meet up in real life soon! Glad to have a friend like you. ^___^
