Cosplay Tips for Beginners
Although I am still definitely within the 'beginners' category, I have already learned some things the hard way in the meantime and by sharing them here I might be able to help the next beginners avoid having to face the same difficulties. Therefore, here are some cosplay tips listed: - Are you going to a convention in Cosplay?? Try taking pictures at the beginning of the convention. At the end of a day walking around in such a crowd, it may be possible that your cosplay doesn't look as radiant as it did at the beginning of the day. This can be about simple things, like a wig that starts to fall off or makeup that starts to run out a bit, but with some bad luck there might even be something broken on your Cosplay. Hiding it during photos certainly creates an additional difficulty. - Pay attention to comfort! This one is quite important and is also often overlooked. Before you go to a convention, wear cosplay for a longer period of time, walk around in it, sit down.. Feel if you can move and if something isn't poking, for example, because wearing the outfit that pricks your ribs can even lead to wounds and we certainly don't want that. Also, do not forget to pay attention to the shoes. The character you cosplayt wear might be high heels, but if you never wear them in your life, you don't suddenly go to a convention to walk around on it all day.. A good idea therefore is to take the heels for photos, but while wandering around at the convention just go for more comfortable shoes. - Don't forget to do some makeup tests before you go to the convention. Not only is the exercise important so that you don't ruin it on the day itself, but also take a look at the makeup in different light. Who knows, it will look great in your bathroom, but as soon as you're in real sunlight, you'll see that it makes you paler or just more pink than expected. So experiment with that makeup a little bit, especially if you - just like me - have no experience with makeup. - Practice poses in advance for photos. This one is more important than I expected actually. Because suddenly there's someone who wants to take a picture of you in your cosplay and then your head goes empty. How should I stand? Where do I keep my hands? Therefore, practice some poses beforehand and do not be afraid to look at reference photos of the character you cosplay. Try out the poses, take some pictures without having to wear the cosplay, see if it looks good, if you might need to adjust some,... Most people are not used to posing and then it quickly feels very uncomfortable, exercise makes that burden a little lighter. You know what you want and how to do it, so you will come across more confidently. - Think about the practical things in advance. A ball gown looks great, but driving on one is often difficult. When will you put on your cosplay? Which parts can you put on in advance and still move easily? And also think in advance how you will go to the toilet. You don't want to stand with an almost snapping bladder and still have to figure out how to get to the toilet with that big ball gown or that bodysuit. - Do not compare yourself too much with other cosplayers. Who knows, they've been doing this for ten years now, logical than their costumes look better. Everyone started somewhere! Instead, let their costumes inspire you, maybe even learn from. Ultimately, you have undoubtedly put a lot of work into your costume, so you can be proud anyway! - Have fun! Keep it fun and airy and just enjoy this fine, creative hobby. Talk to like-minded people about the things you like, go to conventions with friends, share your work,... Hopefully, with this list of tips I have already been able to help some people who think of starting in Cosplay. If there is an interest in more specific tips on how to start cosplay, I might also try to list. Also, there might be a sequel if I have experienced and learned more things. Have fun in your cosplay adventure! #cosplay #cosplaytips #CosplayForBeginners

Tania Kross is Carmen
About the performance With exceptional success, Tania Kross fulfilled her childhood dream: a specially adapted version of her favorite opera Carmen. The performance received wonderful reviews and received a lot of support everywhere. Tania knows how to drag the whole of the Netherlands into this love story full of passion and betrayal. Georges Bizet's masterpiece with all the famous arias and melodies seems to be able to keep the minds pretty busy in a fresh, modern style.. The title role is written by Tania: she turns Carmen into a fiery and powerful, independent woman. As Tania says, “I decide where I go, I decide who I fall in love with, I decide who I am.”. After performing Carmen at, among others, the State Opera Stuttgart and at the prestigious Glyndebourne Opera Festival, Tania made a tour of sold-out venues throughout the Netherlands with this version made especially for her. Arranger Thijs Borsten combined the brilliant music of Bizet with influences from flamenco, the fiery dance from the southern provinces of Spain where the story of Carmen takes place, making a sparkling, contemporary version of Tania's favourite piece. Tania Kross is assisted by Dutch soprano Francis van Broekhuizen in the role of Micaëla and tenor Charles Hens as Don Jose. We see Carlos Denia, one of Spain's best flamenco singers, as toreador Escamillio. About Tania Kross Born in 1976 in Curaçao, Tania Kross sang in all major concert halls in the world, including in Paris, Salzburg, Vienna, and Carnegie Hall in New York. She has previously performed Carmen's title role at Staatsoper Stuttgart, Latvian National Opera in Riga and at the prestigious Glyndebourne Opera Festival. Kross is a welcome guest on television, and with verve she shows her love for music to a new audience.
