Anonymous asked: hey Fia, Mica and Cim? Do you still open your facebook accounts? I sent you a message and I hope you it really touched your heart.. btw, do you accept friend requests?
Hello! Sorry, but we only accept friend requests from people we know, and we aren’t very active on Facebook anyway.
Just so you guys know, it’s a bit difficult for us to reply to all of the asks on this blog, since all three of us have to be gathered in order to answer most of them, and that doesn’t happen very often. So if you want a quicker answer, you can send your ask to one of our personal tumblrs: Fia, Cim, Mica. (Though that doesn’t really guarantee a quick answer either, we can be slow there too.)
Stay awesome folks!
triplicategrl asked: Tips for crossplay or cosplaying children/young teens? I'm thinking about trying to cosplay my roleplay character here.
Get a binder (a REAL one, bandages and other substitutes can be harmful), and use makeup even if you’re cosplaying a guy. Use foundation and powder for your face and lips, and mark the outlines of your eyes with a dark eyeliner. It shouldn’t be too hard to find a good tutorial if you google it.
moonlitsoliloquy asked: So, I'm pretty sure you've answered this question before, but where do you get your wigs from? Thanks! ^_^ P.S. Aloha from Hawai'i (^_^)/
Arda Wigs, Fanstasy Sheep or just random sellers on eBay.
sydpiggy1 asked: Hi! I really enjoy watching your videos, and was wondering, do you guys make or buy your cosplays? If you buy them, do you have any good websites to get them? Thanks! :)
We make most of our cosplays ourselves, so unfortunately we don’t have any suggestions.
ittybittykittyjenz asked: hiiiiiz from alberta canada, i have a question, colored contacts safe or dont do it and have you ever considerd going to canada? you guys really inspired me to go and cosplay thankyou and all the rest , your awesome ^.0
Coloured contacts are perfectly safe as long as you’re careful and buy them from the right places. Mica suggests that you watch this video for reference, and if the contacts hurt your eyes then you should take them out immediately!
And no, we don’t have any plans on going to Canada at the moment.
Anonymous asked: What software do you use to edit your videos?
AVS Video Editor, but we’re thinking about getting something better.
karkittyplaysnice asked: Hi! My friends and I absolutely fell in love with all your CMV's and we were inspired to try making one of our own! I was assigned to write the script and I've been having a bit of trouble. So I was wondering, is there a certain way you set up your scripts or a way you recommend doing?
Thank you! <3
When writing our scripts, we first copy the lyrics of the song we’ll use from somewhere, and then we simply write what will happen below each line. We also try to write what angles we want to have, how close the camera will be, if the camera should stand still or move around, zoom in or out, shake or be steady etc. Here’s an example from the first refrain of No One Notices Your Brand New T-Shirt (you can compare with the actual video):
no one will miss you when you die
Long shot of Canada, sitting at a café and writing in a note pad, gets his cup of coffee from the waitress. He looks up and smiles and nods.
no one will think of you and cry
Cut to Canada who snuggles down in the couch at his place, hugs a pillow, grabs a remote and points towards the TV.
no one notices your brand new t-shirt
Cut to Canada on the street, medium shot from the front, he walks towards the camera which “zooms with him”, so that he doesn’t get closer so to speak.
although you’ve done all that you should
PANNING TO THE RIGHT THROUGH ALL OF THESE SCENES!
Canada sits by the dinner table eating.
you’ve been polite and you’ve been good
Canada stands in a group with others who are shaking hands. He reaches out with his own hand to shake the others’, but they don’t see it.
He still looks happy, and tries to shake hands again and again.
and you worked hard to lose that stupid accent
Canada stands in his bathroom with a book in his hand, talks with himself in the mirror, like he’s improving his pronunciation.
Quicker panning to the right to flow into the next scene.
Yeah, I think you get the general idea. Most of the time we don’t go into small details until we’re in place and start filming, but we still try to be as detailed as possible in the script.
Also, remember that you can only give a scene as much time as the song lets you. If you’re not sure whether you have enough time, listen to the song and try to imagine the scene at the part of the song where you want to put it. Do you think it’ll work? Awesome! You don’t think so? Rethink the scene and try to make it fit. Keep in mind that many scenes will probably take more time in real life than in your head, but also that you can cut a lot and do very short scenes. In No One Notices Your Brand New T-Shirt Canada only practices in front of the mirror for about two seconds, but the audience still has the time to see and understand it.
Good luck with your CMV!
