I've created some Doctor Who themed nail art for Entertainment Weekly! - http://popstyle.ew.com/2012/10/21/beauty-geek-how-to-create-doctor-who-nail-art/#more-5285
They are based on The Silence (creeeeepy!) and I've included a step-by-step tutorial which shows you how to paint a cute version. Can't wait to see if anyone has a go at them! You'll have to send me a link if you do, I'll wanna make a post about it!

Internet friendshipsThis is copied from my dear friend :iconGlorrosaelin:Internet friendships1 year ago in Personal More Like This
She found this on Tumblr, it's thinking of someone on internet friendships
"I've been thinking, lately, there's something really special about internet friendships.
"I think, first off, theres an emotional connection that can be easily formed, because you can be so open on the internet because of that initial sense of anonymity of it all. You're sharing your feelings you hide from your family because, hey, maybe they understand.
"Not only that, but its so opposite from meeting a person, say, at school. You've likely never seen them, so if you've made any judgement of them, its on the contents of their blog or something along those lines. Your first judgments are on their interests or their personality.
"Sure, there are drawbacks. You don't get the facial clues, you don't get to laugh at little quirks in their accent, but its just as valid in a completely different way.
"It takes time to work up to even hearing a person's vo
Hello Ladies!This is an invitation for all of my female family members at :iconNoldorinFamilyStore:Hello Ladies!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As you know, :icondreams-of-arda: is FINALLY getting married to his long suffering fiancee', Amarie. As maid of honor, the responsibility of organizing a hen party has fallen to me. Therefore, all the Noldorin ladies are invited to attend .
After much brainstorming, and a bit of Googling, I propose that we meet for a fun, carefree night of girl-bonding time. Most of us have spent too much time lonely, dead, or both, so it's time for some pampering! Let's break out the fingernail polish and jello shots.
I thought it might be fun to play a couple of games, such as "Never have I Ever." Does anyone have any questions they want t be sure are asked?
:iconGlorrosaelin: has generously offered to bake a cake. Any other help or suggestions are welcome!
ooc: I liked :iconLadyBrookeCelebwen: 's idea of writing a story, but I am not going to promise anything spectacular.

get drunk,and celebrate the end of his freedom, and the beginning of that lovely thing called matrimony. Isn't true love just wonderful?
Now, there's no strippers, mainly because I didn't want to give our resident Casanova wannabe any ideas, and also because the dear wifes of some of you might have issues with it. (And as a note, I'm not responsible if you get drunk, stumble home in a stupor, and wake to the sound of your wife screaming at you. Nor am I interested in complaints from you about how your wife is being mean to you. It's not my fault I have an awesome wife, and you don't.)
So, get drunk! Have fun! Keep Turko away from any passing women that look a little like Luthien when he's drunk! Have fun wrestling with my dear brother, because he wants

Some sad news about wolves (?) and PHOTOS of themHi!Some sad news about wolves (?) and PHOTOS of them2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I must say I am a bit nervous I visited ZOO Brno few times in last few weeks and I see that one of three oldest pack members is not fluffy yet ZOO Brno's oldest wolves are Atila (male) and Alex and Clair (females, sisters). Arctic wolves live only some 7 years in the wild, but can have much longer life in ZOOs. But while Atila still looks nice and fluffy, both females look somehow... "used" this year maybe it is because they gave birth to so many pups and they also used to have some fight (at least one serious two years ago). When you look at their faces, they start to remind of those photos of very very old wolves you can see here on dA and one of the females (I do not which one of them is Alex or Clair) starts to lose fur, her back and hips are moulted
Last time I was watching wolves, ZOO guide came, saying "Do you see that moulted wolf there? It is one of our breeding females. Poor one "u to má asi za sebou"." Saying "u to mít za se

deviantART's response regarding Art4Love.comIt recently came to our attention that a website called Art4Love.com was offering prints for sale, some based off of deviations also found on deviantART.com (and perhaps other works by artists not on deviantART). Art4Love.com is currently offline, but was up long enough to make some artists very understandably upset, as neither the artists (we are told) nor deviantART ever gave permission for Art4Love.com to sell these prints.deviantART's response regarding Art4Love.com2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We've been tracking the exchanges of comments and journals about all possible infringing activity and are ready to provide information from our side that would help legal action that any of the affected artists decide to bring. We will also fully cooperate with any government agency that may become involved because of consumer complaints against this apparently infringing website and the people running it. We would also happily cooperate with any possible fraud investigations.

Somehow, this silly page has hit 9 million views!
Just to be absolutely clear, I do not think the views make me any better than anyone else. I mean, I'm sure some of those are from people who don't even like me. But I guess my point is that it's crazy to imagine that this page has been opened up that many times, and I can't help wondering where all these hits have come from. And I just feel so grateful that a select few people in those millions have come to be irreplaceable friends to me.
It's been a wild ride with all of you guys through all this time. To me this isn't just a page where I simply showcase my artwork or the cosplay photos my friends and I come up with. This site has opened up so many opportunities for me, and has introduced me to some of the most wonderful people I've met in my life.
It's been a journey, and my interactions with the people here have taught me more than I can express.

Premium Members, you've just leveled up!You heard it here first! Because we are so appreciative of all your continuous support, we wanted to include a little something special to the Premium Membership package. While we have many more changes in the works that will knock your socks off, I'm excited to announce that we've just added an ongoing 10% discount on Prints and deviantWEAR purchases! That's ten percent off all Photo Prints, Fine Art Prints, Wrapped Canvases, Art Gifts, T-shirts, Backpacks, Hoodies, and the rest of our devious gear.Premium Members, you've just leveled up!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wanna' know the best part? The 10% will almost always stack with other promotions we're running. For example, if we're running a 15% discount on Fine Art Prints, you'll get 25% off thanks to your Premium Membership! While it's not quite as extreme as my favorite show "Extreme Couponing," it's pretty sweet, right?! And, no, you don't have to cut any coupons or pay for this upgrade... just think of it as an additional benefit to your current Premium Membership as a thank you from devi

Stages of Deterioration in the Human Body
The Moment Of Death:
1. The heart stops.
2. The skin gets tight and ashen in color.
3. All the muscles relax.
4. The bladder and bowels empty.
5. The body temperature begins to drop 1 1/2 degrees Fahrenheit per hour.
After 30 minutes:
6. The skin gets purple and waxy.
7. The lips, fingernails, and toenails fade to a pale color.
8. Blood pools at the bottom of the body.
9. The hands and feet turn blue.
10. The eyes sink into the skull.
After 4 hours:
11. Rigor mortis has set in.
12. The purpling of the skin and the pooling of the blood continue.
13. Rigor continues to tighten muscles for another 24 hours or so.
After 12 hours:
14. The body is in full rigor mortis.
After 24 hours:
15. The body is now the temperature of the
CookiesFor anyone wanting to know how I make the Christmas cookies I upload here.Cookies1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so first there's the dough. I either use gingerbread dough, or Linzer dough. When baked, the former is firm*, thus easier to draw on, but also darker and almost impossible to correct drawing mistakes on when using chocolate; even if you scratch the wrong line or blot away, the darker patch is still there. Linzer dough is better in that aspect; it's so fuzzy and soft that the upper layer comes away easily; it's also lighter in colour, thus the chocolate design stands out better. The downside is its softness - it crumbles away at the lightest pressure, so the touches must be absolutely light.
* If, like me, you roll the dough very thin (1-3 mm), watch out for wrinkles on your baking paper and for humidity in your apartment; both tend to cause gingerbread dough to twist and bend.
Shapes. Most of the stuff I show here is drawn on completely random shapes of leftover dough. I love the moment of surprise there,

We've been getting some awesome entries so the judging is going to be hard!!!
Also so you know, we're not going to do a poll to judge this as the results can be skewed by people with large followings so we are asking a group of unbiased deviants to vote individually. I will be tallying up the points and announcing the winners on Christmas Eve. Good luck everyone!
Hi there! We've recently made it so that you cannot submit straight to the Feature folder. At the end of each month us admins will each chose one deviation to put into that folder... that way the deviation's awesomeness is immortalized FOREVER! ^.^
Hi all, I've been recently appointed Founder of this group, so I am going to try and liven this place up again! To do so I need more help in the form of contributors and we are also hosting a contest!!
