Katsucon and Getting Beat UpHey y'all!Katsucon and Getting Beat Up1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So I'll be at Katsucon the weekend after this, for Friday only (just going down for the day with some friends). If you're awake at 9 am on Friday, you can catch me at the gazebo with the big Sakizou cosplay group! I'll be dressed as Alice, so just look for the Alice with the toy white rabbit. :3 Katsucon is in National Harbor, Maryland, at the fabulous Gaylord Hotel.
So that's all fun and good, but also I wanted to mention a thing on here about something I hear all the time. I get a lot of feedback from fans who, for reasons unknown to me, bemoan the fact that they wish they looked like me or were popular like me. Seriously. People say this. I can't count how many girls write to me and say they wished they were me, because they feel they're not pretty or outgoing enough. I have nothing but sympathy for young people, especially girls, who feel they aren't attractive or well-liked, or feel like outsiders in their school or social

I can't tell you everything, but it's the culmination of a dream many of us thought would never happen. It involves 3D animation by some of the best people in film and video, incredible action and adventure and one smart-talking green cat.
It's a video game.
It's a Bizenghast video game.
It's a Bizenghast video game in a fully 3D world.
And I'm going to play the voice of Dinah.
Told you that you should have sat down.
Stay tuned, because on Valentine's Day, the town of Bizenghast is about to get a little bit stranger...and a whole lot bigger.

Hello everybody! I've got one last submission to this month's challenge to share with you:
Beautiful! Well, I'll see you all next week with a new challenge for September/October!
Another beautiful submission to this challenge, check it out:
Next week will be the last for this challenge, and then we'll have a new challenge for September/October! See you next week!
Hi! We have a few new submissions to the challenge this week, another fun and unusual use of tsumami kanzashi: eyepatches! You all are so creative, I love it!
Also, I noticed a few tsumami kanzashi that were submitted to the gallery folders but not the favorites folder for the Challenge, so here's just a friendly reminder that it doesn't count for the Challenge unless it's in the favorites gallery (but it can be in both, so fear not- you don't have to choose between them!).
Anyways, see you all next week!

*CLOSED* Make Me an OC Contest. WINNERS!Thanks For all the Nice OC`s that I got for the Contest, And I have Now Decided The Winners!*CLOSED* Make Me an OC Contest. WINNERS!11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
To Decide the winners was not Easy, as always. Many really good OCs in the contest, and what I was looking for was the following:
How Good the OC Picture was.
All rules was Followed.
Whatever I could use them Or Not.
And Heart. Yes, I fell in love with some of the OC`s.
I most say that the 3 top winners was quite easy. But the last 2 was hard, very hard. So I ended up with Buying 2 of the Pictures + the 5 winners.
All OC`s in this contest accepted the Rules and terms, and they/you can no longer use the OC. You have given me the Rights to use them as my own, and as I want. All Credit for the Original Picture goes to the Original owner. I can also Re-upload the picture.
The 2 Pictures that I have decided to Buy, when I couldn't decide the 5th Winner, is:
The art of Hajime Sorayama❦ Introduction,The art of Hajime Sorayama2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hajime Sorayama is a Japanese illustrator, born in 1947. Known for his precisely detailed, erotic hand painted portrayals of women and feminine robots.
Hajime Sorayama is known world-wide for his imaginative and highly accomplished paintings of beautiful women. Using brush, pencil and acrylic paint, airbrushing only finishing details, he creates memorable images in a hyper-realistic style. He is often referred to as the contemporary Vargas by those familiar with his pin-up style works, and is respected by artists and illustrators for his perfect technique.
In retrospect, Sorayama's work has been remarkably prescient. Beginning in the 1970s and evolving into the 21st century, the futuristic aura of the robotic, mythic and fantastical figures in his art have always been ahead of their time.

A Little Fursuit Cost PerspectiveWHY OUR COSTUMES ARE "EXPENSIVE"A Little Fursuit Cost Perspective10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I posted this info over on Tumblr, and thought others might find it interesting!
Someone just sent me a note that read:
"Seeing all the materials you guys use for your fursuits, I can really see why they're so pricey. "
Thanks for noticing! We are asked to justify our prices pretty often, or even accused of charging too much, but I think a lot of people just do not realize that there is A LOT of expense (and not just in materials), and a TON of time that goes into making each suit. And sure, lots of people plug in features to our price calculator and come out with a $3000-$7000 figure, and must be imagining us sitting around in bathtubs full of cash. Truth is, we don't make a whole lot of profit - where does it all go?
First, consumable materials. These are items that need to be bought new for each and every suit because they get completely used up in the process. This includes casting resins, sheet plastics, foam, polyfill, paint, elastic

Abstract and Surreal DDs for JanuaryI think we're much smarter than we were.Abstract and Surreal DDs for January2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Everybody knows that abstract art can be art,
and most people know that they may not like it,
even if they understand there's another purpose to it.
Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only
what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.
