If you are offering a service, I recommend our Commission Board for you to post your offer, as well as checking here to see if anyone requires a service you provide.
If you have a better paying project, such as one with a set per-page price, we welcome you to write up a journal post about it, so that more people will see it. We only allow this to be done for proper "jobs", meaning there is compensation for the work being done. Please remember that artists/editors/writers/web designers/ graphic designers/ everyone here works hard on what they do, and so "free" work isn't to be expected. If you post an offering and no one applies, try seeing if you can alter your budget around, and check the Commission Board to see if anyone is willing to work within your price
Can everyone just..Go tell someone you love them.Can everyone just..1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Even if it is random & out of the blue.
Even if you feel like a total doofus.
Go tell your friends, family, lover, neighbor, your neighbor's dog, a squirrel.. Go on a love spree.
You never know if it is the last time you'll see them.
If you're fighting with someone, stop. Tell them you love them. You never know if that would be the last time you talk to them.
Make life full of love. Not regrets.
That is all.
Shit Cosplayers SayJust in time to write my last image journal entry before the day as a subscriber ends (LIKE TODAY)Shit Cosplayers Say2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kanasaiii and I had became fans of Shit Girls Say when it debuted, since then, it turned into this giant internet meme where people made countless videos that label 'Shit ______ Say'.
So as cosplayers, we decided to contribute one: Shit Cosplayers Say
We have more content but ran out of time, these were everything filmed in one day. Our gifted actress was very game on everything we asked her to, including looking ugly and changing her clothes for each scene.
Please leave a comment to share your cosplayer experiences over at the video. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did making!

As said before: English is not my native language. I'm sorry for every mistake I made while writing. I'm just showing you what works for me. This is a "you can" tutorial and not "you must". I hope this gives you a basic idea on how I do it and helps you as well. I will not show you any brands of make-up I work with since they are different from country to country. I'm not a dermatologist or a professional make-up artist, so I can't give you tips for "problem skin" cases like acne and so on. Please consult a doctor and let them give you tips for what's best to use before buying something randomly
If you don't know what make-up to use out of the hilarious amount of available products in stores ask a vendor in the store of your choice. They will help you.
This tutorial will be the base for every upcoming make-up related tutorial I will post in the future.
First of all I clean my skin and apply vanishing crème. It's always good to do so

It is common curtousy to not question someone you don't really know. Right?
You're walking down the street and see a gentleman in a wheelchair with cuts and scars all over.
Typical initial reaction: Oh, that person has been through something to make him that way. Try not to stare and continue about your business.
You wouldn't run up to that stranger and ask in their face, "HEY MAN. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU? WHAT ARE ALL THOSE MARKS ON YOUR SKIN? WHY ARE YOU MISSING A LEG? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR ARM? WHY ARE YOU SO WEIRD LOOKING?"

I am in a state of shock.
I am fucking upset. Beyond upset. I am extremely disappointed. I feel violated. I feel disgusted. HORRIBLE. Terrified and mentally dismembered. Distraught. I'm shaking from the extreme amount of upsetting feelings bubbling overboard in me.
My friends & I have dealt with things like this before, but it has NEVER been this bad. We have never gone this long without knowing something was going on behind our backs. & this is probably why Hannah & I are in such shock right now. I am usually told about these things & the situation is settled through Hannah for the most part, because I am not a dramatic person. I cannot handle drama, it really affects me physically. So, for a long time, I've been not bothering with handling people who impers

This part of the tutorial is mostly thanks to my wife chibinis-chan who did the modeling for it.
She is doing her eye make-up after applying basic make-up like shown before. She will show you one make-up with different colors. I'm holding this tutorial very short with just the steps as such because I already wrote all the tips for applying in the first part of this tutorial.
First she is using black kajal to draw a line on the eyelid and under the waterline of her right eye. The line under her eye is about 1/3 of the complete length of the waterline.
After this she uses brown eye shadow to blend it a lit

Before Cosplay Makeup: Basic Skincare!Before I write about cosplay makeup, I figured I should discuss some skincare basics.

I'm not an awesome guru wizard thing, but I'll just share some general concepts and products that work for me. It's different for everybody, but I hope this will be helpful! For your sreference, my skin type is combination: normal to dry with an oily nose. Hahah! Not my T-zone, just my nose!
Recently, my male friends had gotten very interested in makeup for cosplay and asked me for tips on how to go about it. (I think this was fueled by Kaname's visit to our country for Cosplay Mania '12, and they saw how beautiful he looks. ) I decided to ask them about their skincare regimen to figure out what products might work for their skin type.

I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!
I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^ That said, hope you enjoy! *chu*

Keep in mind that english isn´t my mother language and I have a limited knowledge of informal words (I´m spanish).

As always~ English is not my native language so you might come across mistakes. My apologies! If anything is unclear feel free to ask me in the comments.
I'm just showing you what works for me and what's my personal liking. I'm focusing on eye make-up and additional tips. If you think this way of doing a boys cosplay make-up is is using way too much make-up that's totally fine. Everyone has his/her own preferences and this tutorial is just a hint who it can be done.
The shape of eyes differ a lot from one to another, so if you want to try it the way I do my make-up you might have to adjust it to your own eyes. Maybe you have already run into this problem before while seeing a well done eye make-up in a tutorial or worn by an asian cosplayer. Furthermore be aware of the fact that the shape of your eyebrows, wearing c

I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a

If you are able to understand German you can go to my Animexx weblog and read it there :3 Unfortunately dA doesn't support embedding my pics into the text so I had to put them directly over/under the text. Sorry for that!
I'm just showing you what works for me, so this is a "you can try this" and not a "this is the only way you can do it".
As you might know wigs are made out of plastic fibers. Plastic is a heat bendable material, so this is the essence of the both methods I will show you. Styling your wig with heat will also work for curling it, making spikes and so on. Please be careful whenev

Fluttershy is crying. Why? Because she just listened to a heartbreaking story of a very talented person here on dA. The story of Sahtori-Kamaya (Karine Coenen) has been going around the fandom for a while now and some or most of you have probably heard about Karine before. For those of you who don’t know, Karine is very ill with cancer and she will be dead before next summer.
Fluttershy sends out this plea to all who care enough to listen to Karine’s story. Listen to Karine’s new video below and take to heart the message that the Sahtori-Kamaya has for all of us.
Karine Coenen mentions in one of her DeviantArt journals how, despite universal healthcare in Belgium, her insurer seems to be able to legally withhold treatment for her just because she is behind on her payments. Even employers reject her because of her disease, and she can’t expect any help from

Not amusedI am not in a good mood right now. I can't hear a dang thing in my right ear. And no I am not exaggerating. I have my ear buds in right now and I can only hear it on the left side. My friends know how loud I play my music, and I can only hear a sliver of sound going into my right ear. On top of that I can barely breathe and I have a coughing fit constantly. My stomach is killing me though I may just be really hungry since I haven't eaten anything since last night at like 7:30. That can be fixed so whatever. But what I'm really pissed about is I have to go to my Grandpa's house later today. Don't get my wrong, I want to see my Grandpa and all, it's the rest of my family I don't want to see. My Uncle Jermey and Aunt Kara are gonna be there and they're bringing my two little cousins, Jaden and Grayson. I really want to see Jaden and Grayson because they had been living in Alabama and Tennessee before that. But, I am pissed at my uncle and to be truthful, I don't really like my aunt.

•Stumbled upon the above picture on tumblr. I first imagined a highschool bully for Abbey for TΛB. The idea for Hana to be Abbey's older sister came some time afterwards when brainstorming Hana's backstory.
•Stumbled upon this picture as well. Primarly saved the image as clothing refs for Michiko Toyoda. I always commented on how Cara (who's name I didn't even know at the time) looked like an ideal daughter for Michiko.
•So the base idea for Hana was set. She would be the daughter of someone with Michiko's likeness and instead of being
