Reviews: Cosplay Wig ShopsSo, here we start with the review thingy about cosplay stuff.Reviews: Cosplay Wig Shops4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I ran into a loooooooooooot of trouble in the past weeks regarding wigs I will start with them.
First of all some general important informations:
- ALWAYS keep an eye on the feedback of a shop. If there are negative or natural feedbacks READ THEM. Not every negative feedback is appropriate and some shops sell more than just wigs. So be careful.
- ALWAYS be carefull with shops that advertise with asian cosplayers. A lot of pictures are taken from the japanese highclass cosplaysupplier cospediawig or the chinese Tabaeo stores. Have a close look at the pictures. Often you can see some blured details or removed watermarks. I even found some fellow non asian cosplayers by now as advertisment for wigs they definitely didn't buy.
Some shops even take pictures from wigs on wigsstands from other sellers. Look and think twice if you buy there. You can be lucky and get what you see, but there is a pretty high chance you ge

But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.

CLOSED - Photomanipulation Contest - MythologyUPDATE: Hi, everyone. Sorry for the silence. Things have been hectic this past week. I was hoping to have the winners announced by now, but I haven't had a lot of time online, and I won't have more until the middle of next week. The announcement will not be any later than next Wednesday, that I can promise.CLOSED - Photomanipulation Contest - Mythology6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Based on the results of a previous poll, the popular choice for the contest theme is Mythology.
"Mythology can refer either to the collected myths of a group of people—their body of stories which they tell to explain nature, history, and customs—or to the study of such myths. As a collection of such stories, mythology is an important feature of every culture."
For this contest, you are invited to create an entry based around your favorite god, goddess, mythological creature, etc. However, you are encouraged to break out of the box a bit and work around a myth you are not familiar with, or one that i
MileageHey guys,Mileage1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Week 2 helping students at CDA. I know I sound like a broken record telling students to slow down.
But we ( Kevin, Dan, and Esmerelda ) can't stress that enough. Really think out the marks that you put down.
You'll get to spend more time drawing and not fixing. When I sit down to help students, I ask them simple questions
and they always answer correctly. Example: Me: What view is the head in? Student: Side view. Slightly tilted
away. Me: Correct. So let's draw the base head. ( we go through the steps involved in drawing this view )
Me: Now what do we do next? Student: Draw the carpet shape to envelope the torso. Me: Right ( We go through
the steps ) Main point being that the student knows this stuff. Just needs to slow down.
Better slow and correct than fast and sloppy.
When you go to drawing workshops. It's better to draw slower in the beginning. Maybe

However, due to the system being a pain, it now won't let me post it as a comment there. -_- Hopefully it will be okay in the form of a "updatable" Journal, here.)My Categorized 'Glomp' Message3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Glomps, Gwomps, Gromps, Yomps & More
Okay, this yet remains the largest "Glomp" message that I have compiled & organized, to date.
Over time, it has grown larger, but due to 's limit on the length, a message full of icons, can be, I have had to decrease the number of icons per row from 8, to 6, then 4, then 2 With this most recent, LARGE update, I have decreased it to 1 of each kind of icon, (with the exception of some that overlap between categories) so that my Message's "KB Size" remains open to future updates Hopefully it doesn't look too mixed up now because of
A Fat Rant... of sortsSo, I rarely look at DDs anymore, for several reasons... but often one of them on the bottom of a page catches my eye and makes me click it. Today this happened to be a nude shot of a nice, plump bubble butt. After admiring the image for a while I wanted to leave a comment with my likes and dislikes of the composition... and then I made the mistake of reading the comments.A Fat Rant... of sorts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's really sad to see that DDs like this turn into discussions of what is beautiful and what kind of women are deemed 'real' or 'ideal'. Those who claim they just want everyone to be treated equally are those who throw around the word 'real women' or 'real bodies' the most. As if skinny women weren't real, just a figment of our imagination, nothing more to them. But no, skinny women don't have a right to be offended, only us fatties do.
Yes, the woman on the image has a disproportionately large behind which is emphasized by the camera angle. No, she did not need everyone to jump up and defend her

Most of these I gathered on my own. Another great list is here: http://nepeta.mozai.com/shimeji/ All the shimeji on that list are also listed here.
The first list set will all take you to the original source of the shimeji, NOT the direct download. Some of the download links are in the descriptions. The second list set is of direct downloads for shimeji with uncredited sources. If you know who they belong to, please let me know. ALWAYS credit your source when posting images of the shimeji!
If you know of a shimeji not on this list please let me know! I'm always trying to keep it updated and hunt for original sources. I know there's a lot more out there that I own or have seen but can't find the original links for so any help you have would be greatly appreciated!
