Hi everyone!

It's been such a long hiatus for me here, and I apologise for not sharing a lot about my life since my last journal post. Many things have happened and there's just too much to tell. If you want to keep up with my life/randomstuff/chat just drop me a message here, I will reply when I can!

Also, I have been more active on facebook and posting most of my recent works on my facebook page here : Peppa Mintos Thank you if you have popped by to like/follow my FB page! :D

I have been thinking long and hard if I should one day, eventually close my DA account or continue to post up pictures here. Here are some of my thoughts :
  1. Photo theft - I've come across photogs + cosplayers alike writing about these and how their photos are snagged off DA and not being credited.  Tbh I'm not as worried as I was after giving it some thought- simply because as long as your photo is up somewhere, someone's gonna save the photo to their computer anyway. The only prevention I can think of is a watermark and uploading a not so hi-res version of your picture. But that doesn't mean I still don't get angry over people reposting without credit :/ Also, I've been uploading the best picture quality possible here, so to post a not-so hi-res version would somewhat defeat the purpose :(
  2. Viewership - How many of you still check on DA nowadays? What are the benefits of maintaining the DA page vs personal FB pages/cosplay accounts? I'd appreciate some feedback if you have stories to share :)
After using an FB page for some time, I've learnt that page views on FB pages are somewhat restricted unless you start to pay for your page. This has certainly miffed me for a moment because what's the purpose of having a page when people don't see your post until you share it out on a 'facebook account'/have enough shares out? I have considered re-building an FB account solely for cosplay but the hassle of re-adding people back is really...daunting when you have 1000+ppl to filter out.


I guess that's all for now, been very busy finding work in SG (IT HAS BEEN TOUGH!) so gotta keep at it >A<;;

at least for dA here, the photo's quality is considered better than FB.
