Most denizens of the West think of New Zealand as a little known outpost of civilization somewhere beyond Australia at the ends of the Earth.
Could any land be any farther from the European motherland, birthplace of the Renaissance that is the Genesis-point of the visual arts narrative we continue expanding and evolving today? And yet this remote country of islands in the Pacific has suddenly become a cinematic storytelling powerhouse, a film-friendly factory for the creation of some of the most important touchstone mass entertainment experiences to influence our popular culture in recent years.

MLP: Minky Color Guide:
Which minky color works best for ______ (insert MLP character here)?
This journal is an attempt to answer that question. There are more than 50 shades of minky out there, and as a plushie maker, I realize that it can be difficult to know which color will work best for the particular pony you're working on. This is made even more frustrating by the fact that many of the images of the minky do not show the true color!
I recently ordered a ton of swatches from fabric.com, and I'm continuing to collect swatches from various websites, in an attempt to get most of the minky colors. Because I have the actual fabric with me, I can compare it to the characters' colors to see which fits best, to ensure that you can make a plushie that is as show-accurate as possib

The many types of LolitasThis article was written for the LolitaLuvers Club, in a previous postThe many types of Lolitas5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Okay, I was searching the internet trying to find all the different types of Lolitas and I think I found most of them, try and see which type you are, personality or clothing wise ^-^ have fun ~Anna</i>
A more mature style of Lolita that focuses on Baroque, Regency, and Rocaille styles. Colors and patterns used in classic Lolita can be seen as somewhere between the Gothic and sweet styles; it is not as dark as Gothic Lolita, but not as cutesy as sweet Lolita. This look can be seen as the more sophisticated, mature Lolita style because of its use of small, intricate patterns, as well more muted colors on the fabric and in the overall design. Designs containing a-lines, as well as Empire waists are also used to add to the more mature look of the classic style, most classic Lolita
TUTORIAL! How to fix wet paper!Have you ever done a drawing and accidently spilled water on it? Or maybe your paper just ended up too wonky from painting too much? Well I have the way to fix that!TUTORIAL! How to fix wet paper!5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now if you spilled water or juice or something and messed up the coloring or the drawing itself...well I can't help you there...but I do know how to make your paper go straight again after its gone all wobbly.
For this you'll need:
- The messed up drawing. It has to have already dried. Do NOT try this while the paper is still wet!
- about 4 to 6 spare sheets of thin paper from your printer
- spare fabric, enough to cover the drawing. A nice cotton shirt works well
- an iron
- a heavy book
Step 1: prep your iron so its nice and hot. While your waiting for it to get warm go to step 2.
Step 2: Lay two sheets of paper onto a flat surface. I used a notebook but a table or thick board works too...a cushioned ironing board will not
Why Naruto Uzumaki is perfect for Queen ElsaMost would say Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians is perfect for her, others would say Hans from the same film she's in, some say Hiccup from How To Train Your Dragon.

BJD Doll FAQBJD Doll FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please read this if you are interested to learn more about the dolls I photograph. I dont have time to keep answering the same questions over and over again >_< I will be updating this journal entry as time goes on. Feel free to add a question in the comments section and I will try to answer it.
❤ BASICS ❤
What are these dolls?
They are BJD - ball jointed dolls. If you search Google with those keywords you will get plenty of results with companies and other info about them. This is the Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball-jointed_doll. Also this LJ answers some questions too http://bjd-wtf.livejournal.com/ . If you want to learn more, I would suggest Den of Angels forum (http://www.denofangels.com/forums/).
Do you make them?
No I don't make the actual doll, I don't sculpt it. I am a customizer, I paint their faceups. I am basically a makeup artist for resin dolls. You can find the link to my commission shop

Each Chapter’s End
Context is everything. The same photographs and paintings of airport terminals and train compartments and subway platforms that seem so cold and forbidding in contemplation of one’s traveling out into the world, somehow become reassuring in their hard functionality and durability – when thought of as the pathway to the journey back home. Faces of travelers photographed in airports often exhibit muted “Mona Lisa smiles,” masking the direction (to or away from home) that they are headed.

Technology is advancing so quickly that our next generation may not be able to identify the technical purpose for the archaic devices in this gallery of telephones and phone booths. The radical evolution of no other single piece of essential equipment in life has ever perfectly denoted which century a story is being told about.
In the 20th century we were tethered by a coiled wire to the wall, in a place specially set aside to conduct phone conversations. In the 21st century everything we need to communicate is carried in a small device in our pocket, freeing us to speak or be s gpoken to from anywhere on the planet.
