Naruto And His History

As a little boy Naruto has so much spirits that make us feel proud and want to be that man, so now let’s go into his world and know more about him.

Naruto Uzumaki is a young boy who has the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox sealed within him. The Nine-Tailed Demon Fox attacked the ninja village Konohagakure, slaughtering many people. In response, the leader of Konohagakure and its ninja military – the Fourth Hokage – sacrificed his life to seal the demon inside Naruto when he born. Konohagakure, however, regarded Naruto as if he were the demon fox itself and mistreated him throughout most of his childhood. A decree made by the Third Hokage, who replaced the Fourth Hokage after his death, forbade anyone mention the attack of the demon fox to anyone else. This included Naruto, who was not aware of the demon inside of him.

The life of naruto has been change from that time and maybe every brave person should has some special experience, so he also can’t escape.
Years later, Naruto is tricked by the renegade ninja Mizuki into stealing a forbidden scroll, but he was stopped by his teacher,Iruka Umino. When Iruka almost dies while protecting Naruto from Mizuki, Naruto uses a Jutsu he learned from the scroll that creates multiple clones of himself, Shadow Clone Technique, and then defeat Mizuki. This encounter leads Naruto to realize that he is the container of the demon fox.

Maybe from that time we know that he finally will be a great person, and the time approved that…
The main story is talked about Naruto and his friends’ personal growth. Naruto befriends two comrades, Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno, who are assigned with him to form a three-person team named Team 7 under an experienced sensei named Kakashi Hatake. Like all the ninja teams from every village, Team 7 is charged with completing missions requested by villagers, such as doing chores or being bodyguards. During the course of their missions, Naruto befriends other characters that he meets throughout the series. Team 7 learns new abilities, get to know each other, and experience a coming-of-age journey as Naruto dreams of becoming the Hokage of Konohagakure.

How To Make Up For You Cosplay?

What will do you do when you can’t make up in your favorite cosplay? It is so embarrassed! You can’t ask theirs make up for you always, so you must learn to make up yourself!

Here is the list of items you need when make up!

Kate Gradical Eyes BR-1

Rimmel London Colour Rush Quad Eye Shadow

Heavy Rotation Perfect Liquid Eyeliner in Black

Surprise Stick Concealer

Lash Expander Frame Plus

TheFaceShop Eyelash Glue

Rimmel London Lipstick

Body Shop Loose Powder

Etude House Eyelash Curler

Dolly Wink No.8 Pure Little

Body Shop Blusher

Loreal Paris True Match Foundation

Step 1: Again with the same routine: Moisturize your face and conceal all imperfections! This time which is a bit different from my previous daily make up tutorial, instead of just dabbing loose powder, I applied some foundation beforehand. Then, you will have a clean, flawless face to ” paint ” on .

Step 2: Depending on what character you will be cosplaying, (unless the character has black / dark hair color) you will have to nude your eyebrows. I conceal my eyebrows using a stick concealed because I will be putting on a blonde/pink wig later.

Step 3: I apply the lightest shade of brown on my entire eyelid. Then I use the next darker brown and blend it from my lash line to the crease. For the darkest shade of brown, I use it on the crease of my eyes from the corner to the outer edges. I also lightly brush some light brown on my lower eyelid.

Step 4: Then it’s eyeliner time! This time I lined my lower eyeliner too to make my eyes appear larger.

Step 5: Stick on the fake upper lashes. Then, curl it upwards using your favorite eyelash curler. For cosplay, I prefer thicker and longer fake lashes so that it’s more obvious in photos. That’s my eye with and without the lashes, can you see the difference?

Step 6: Spam mascara on your lower lashes!

Step 7: Use a tweezers to stick on the fake lashes one by one. I stick them slightly below my real lower lashes. It also blends in well and looks more natural.

Step 8: I use the blonde-like color to shade my eyebrows. On the left pix, you can see that my right eyebrow is colored and the other one is not. On the second pix, both my eyebrows are colored.

Step 9: Smile when you apply the blusher on your cheeks.

Step 10: Apply nude lipstick! It’s the matter of preference actually. Personally I prefer using nude lipstick if I have blusher on, so that the focus will be on my eyes and cheeks instead of my lips. Won’t want the make up to be too over.

The last step: Put on your wig.

Ok, make up is over, you dress in your cosplay costume ,you will have a perfect cosplay!

Be outstanding at Comic-Con2011? 25 Rules of Comic-Con Etiquette for you

The big event Comic-Con2011 is coming! Comic-Con International rolls into the San Diego Convention Center July 21-24, with Preview Night on July 20! CCI is busy finalizing the plans and schedules for the show. It includes anime, autographs, and games for the big show! There’s a well-defined code of conduct designed to make everyone’s experience optimally enjoyable. For all you San Diego pilgrims this week, here be the rules.

The 25 Easy Rules of Comic-Con Etiquette

1.) Stay hydrated throughout the day. This is both for your own well-being; and everyone else’s. The convention center is crowded already without parched corpses and nobody packed smelling salts (unless you cosplay as Night Nurse).

2.) If you cosplay as Night Nurse, pack smelling salts.

3.) For the same reasons, stay nourished. Nutrient deficiency causes lethargy (which causes bottlenecks). Don’t just eat $5 pretzel dogs, as they will induce a common condition known as “Pretzel-Wiener Psychosis.” It’s triggered by looking into your wallet and realized you’ve spent an entire month’s rent on tenuously edible convention slop.

4.) Complaining about lines will not make them go faster. Why? Uatu the Watcher will notice your griping and whisk you away to a 99.9% identical parallel dimension where every line is 5 minutes longer.
5.) Grousing aloud about Twilight fans is tantamount to yammering about airline food. The Twihards will be done by 12:30 PM on Thursday. You are however free to bellyache if Stephenie Meyer announces a new series about crypto-Mormon centaurs or some other mythical fauna.

6.) Ditto goes for bleating about Glee fans. It’s like getting into a fistfight with barometric pressure. Imagine stink lines coming off Hall H if you must.

7.) Keep all pens in your pockets.

8.) Don’t expect your favorite writer or illustrator to sign all 72 issues of your complete run of The Zoo Crew Meets Mr. Magoo…

9.) …unless your favorite writer happens to be yours truly. Come to the io9 panel on Thursday and I’ll autograph family photos, subpoenas, 95% of all body parts (must be attached), and your favorite woodwind instruments. (Yes, I will be there. The powers that be at SDCC have dubbed me a “possible surprise guest.”)

10.) If you’re over 18, don’t ask panelists if they’re single.

11.) If you’re between 8 and 17, you’re allowed to inquire about panelists’ relationship statuses, but be prepared for a chorus of nervous titters.

12.) If you’re under 7, you have carte blanche to do whatever you damn well please. Gurgle, yell at the panelists, languidly recapitulate how much you adored the Canine Hell scene from All Dogs Go To Heaven.
13.) If you’re staging a cosplay weapons duel, avoid the escalators, restrooms, sidewalks — basically any place nobody wants a foam Mjolnir in the grill.

14.) If you’re brandishing a cosplay weapon, it does not deserve its own seat during panels. Learn to perch on your gun-sword like a warlike parakeet.

15.) If you desperately need a 90-second cosplay costume, go as Gambit. Put on a sweat band and scribble on some 75¢ playing cards with a pink highlighter.

16.) If you want to take a photo of a cosplayer, it’s proper form to ask first. Most will be happy to oblige and pose fiercely.

17.) Similarly, don’t even think about sneaking panty shots. People will notice, and you’ll be tarred and feathered in spirit gum and shredded issues of Jughead.

18.) Cosplayers, if you are wearing assless pants, please put down some manner of kerchief before you sit.

19.) If you plan on cosplaying as Hawkman, Hawkgirl, the Silverhawks, the Hawk Men from Flash Gordon, or Hudson Hawk, you must have a wing sidekick who will usher people away from your wingspan.

20.) The 6,000-person canyon of Hall H is not the time to eat your patented limburger-and-durian tart…unless you brought enough for the whole class, that is.

21.) Similarly, Hall H is not the place to commandeer the microphone and practice your stand-up routine. It’s also not the proper location to practice your “heavy breathing” routine either.

22.) Should you be starstruck by your favorite actor/writer/puppeteer, simply say, “Hi, I’m a huge fan of your movies/comics/marionettes. Thank you, and keep on doing what you do and/or puppeteering.”

23.) Absolutely nothing at Comic-Con is worth stampeding over.

24.) I’m going to put this as delicately as possible. Sometimes we get so excited at Comic-Con that we forget to wear antiperspirant. Hell, my schedule is so tortuous this week that my only ablutions will be dust baths and shampooing my hair with industrial-grade lye. When you leave your hotel room, ask yourself, “Do I smell like a dew-dappled Alpine dell?”

25.) Have fun. Seriously. If you’re having a lousy time, the San Diego Fun Police will find you and BOOM. You’re on the title card of a bare knuckle Tijuana cage match.

The Hetalia Axis Powers cosplay recommendation

Hetalia Axis Powers is a Japanese comic , later adapted as a manga and an anime series.

In Hetalia, these characters are normally referred to by their country’s name. The Axis Powers group of characters consists primarily of Germany, Italy, and Japan, who are also the protagonists of the series. The representations of countries also part of the historical Axis powers, such as Hungary, make additional appearances.

Italy ,イタリア, Itaria.

Italy, the primary protagonist and the title character, is a bright, energetic and sweet young man. In the series, he is depicted at various points as the infant grandson of the Roman Empire, and is recognized as the weakest character in the series, and as a carefree and cowardly soldier who often depends on Germany to resolve issues. He have good contacts with Poland. His artistry and love of pasta and pizza are references to Italian culture. He uses his adorable ways and cute face to charm girls he meets. He is portrayed as a “loveable loser”. Italy represents the northern half of the country of Italy, whilst his older brother represents the southern half. Hence, their full character names are Italy Veneziano and Italy Romano. In the anime series, both Italies are voiced by Daisuke Namikawa in Japanese. In English, Veneziano is voiced by Todd Haberkorn and Romano is voiced by Ian Sinclair. Young Italy is voiced by Aki Kanada in Japanese and Brina Palencia in English.

Germany ,ドイツ, Doitsu.

Germany is a hard-working, efficient, bureaucratic, and serious character. In the series, Germany is primus inter pares among the Axis Powers, and takes responsibility for the training of Italy and Japan. He is portrayed as a tsundere character. Another aspect of his character is his relative inexperience with relationships, leading him to be very by-the-book as a result of the belief that things will go wrong if he does not follow instructions to the letter. Despite this, as the series progresses, he forms a close friendship with the foil character of Italy. He notes at one point that he has a “crazy boss”, a reference to the historical figure of Hitler. It is questioned as to whether Germany is the older version of the Holy Roman Empire. In the anime series, he is voiced by Hiroki Yasumoto in Japanese and Patrick Seitz in English.

Japan, Japanese, Nihon.

Japan is a reclusive and hard-working character. He seems to have a problem with others being in his personal space, for he gets uncomfortable if anyone touches him or gets too close. In the series, he is shown to be inexperienced with the Western world, and prone to culture shock. A young man, his character design features dark brown eyes and black hair, common physical traits among Japanese people. He often tries to adopt the cultures of other countries he meets such as France. Generally quiet, he is often depicted with the attitude of a businesslike old man. In the anime series, he is voiced by Hiroki Takahashi in Japanese and Christopher Bevins in English.
