Deviantart ID: September 2010 by Malindachan Deviantart ID: September 2010 by Malindachan
It's about time I got a new Deviant ID for my profile. I decided to do something a bit more basic this time around ^^

Still using Yusei because he's the character I love to cosplay most. He has so many admirable traits and talents, and I feel like a stronger, cooler person when I walk in his shoes. There are some qualities that make us very different, but I also feel like there are some things that make us very alike.
Cosplay has helped me grow as a person, and I feel that Yusei has helped contribute to that. I've been to a lot of places and met lots of new people while cosplaying Yusei, and I feel very blessed to be where I am today thanks to those experiences.

I have a ghost rare, but I generally don't like using it for pictures since you can't see the image on it very well XD

Hmm, Malinda you're awesome with or without the Yuusei cosplay. xD Although, I know that people are their own worst critics. I can also understand how cosplaying Yuusei effects you, and I wish I could manage to make cosplays like that.. *__* As far as the character goes, you really seem like you become him when you cosplay him - it's rather awesome. xD

Very clean and professional looking^^ I have to make an actual ID one of these days... Sora makes me feel so much better about myself when I wear the costume I don't know if it's because it was my first cosplay or because I wanted to do his costume for so long that it just made me feel awesome and shiny to have it but definitely love wearing him the most still... though he needs some work again. Cosplay has helped me a long shot with confidence but heck I still have a long ways to go... some days more than others. I sometimes question myself as if cosplay is a mask or a get away...

I think you have many admirable talents too! OwO like how you make your cosplays and the shoots you post here- how you customise your wigs, make some pieces (like the dark disc? of Haou/Dark!Jaden) and how you paint and draw- I think you're a really really talented person for that q_q *admiraaaation* :heart:

Great picture. Your craftsmanship always amazes me and its great to see it more up close in this picture. Cosplay I think is a medium of self discovery in a sense but on that same token there is a reason you picked Yusei, maybe to bring those traits in you to more of a shining light.

Its amazing how many people you can meet at a convention just by dressing up in a certain cosplay. I was happy to have met you at ASTL. You're an awesome person with who you are and what you do. I wonder if we would've met if I didn't happen to being wearing my Natalia cosplay, you know?

But this is definitely stylish and cool. Love how professional it looks, and your signature being on it is really snazzy. :heart:

Just never forget that Yusei is only a small part of who you are. This character and cosplay have definitely helped you to grow up and socialize more with many people, but it's Malinda who is truly strong, admirable, and talented (not to mention beautiful). Personally, I think you do yourself justice by wearing Yusei, because you have those same traits in yourself :)
