Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank***WARNING: THIS IS A SUPER LONG AND DETAILED POST!***
I get a lot of questions on how waselreins and I did the body makeup for our demon sisters cosplays. So here I'll tell ya'll how we did it, in addition to the whole story about the limo entrance. With pictures!!
On Saturday morning, I woke up at 5 AM to get ready for Kneesock. The limo was going to pick us up at 12:45 PM and I had to help the others get ready so I woke up the earliest to do as much of myself as I could. After the necessary prepping (shower/wash face/brush teeth/moisturize) I put in my contacts and wig cap first.
I used Ben Nye MagiCake Aqua Paint in red for my face and ears. I was told afterwards it's pretty bad for your skin so next time I'm gunna use Kryolan or Mehron, but for Fanime Ben Nye worked perfectly fine for me. Here's a bit more info on it here: http://stageandtheatermakeup.com/bnmagiaq.htm
Instead of water to spray onto the red makeup I used LiquiSet and a foundation brush to apply it to my face.

Unpopular opinion? on Korra ep 05As part of my ongoing quest to be really nerdy, I'm going to oblige the people who sent me notes asking what I thought of "The Spirit of Competition" and what my fave Korra ship(s) are etc. Just a little warning: I'm probably not in the majority with my opinion on this episode, so...here's an opportunity to expand your horizons.Unpopular opinion? on Korra ep 054 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, I'd like to say that I am a HUGE fan of A:TLA and so far am liking LOK a lot. So take this as an individual episode critique, not a series critique. It's still too early for that with Korra.
So. Pema and Tenzin. A romance for the ages. That was sarcasm, in case you were wondering. With their relationship comes my first major problem with ep 05: the way the romantic elements were handled. Let's get this straight. Pema stole Tenzin away from the woman he was dating? And then she recommended to an emotionally confused, EXTREMELY tactless teenage girl that she do the same thing, without getting any of the background information? And nobody sees the pr

after incredibly long time, I met with my best friend Allerlei today - we visited ZOO Prague together we also gave each other Christmas presents - I was given very cute plushie fennec fox! his name is Aleek and he is very cute. I will sleep with him, cuddling with his ears I will take a photo of him later I gave Allerlei some little presents together with dA mug which i designed specially for her so nobody else on this world can has the same mug
We had fun, it was amazing to meet again
It made me happy
Only one bad thing: usually I wish we could be together for many many hours, but I was so freezing I really wanted to be back in the bus this time the temperature was not that low at all, but somehow, together with weather, it made me freeze. Nah.
But I am still very happy I saw my best friend
Thanks for Aleek, Allerlei

Settle Down about TJMAdditional Edit:Settle Down about TJM4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone, I have one thing to clarify. I shouldn't have to, but I feel I must.
I am not trying to discourage ANYONE. What you are about to read may be controversial. I am sorry if it sounds like I am discouraging anyone. I am not. Please, understand the other side of the issue.
This is in no way my trying to STOP anyone from fighting for TJM. I am saying SETTLE DOWN. Which does not mean "Stop". Settling down is calming down.
You are more than welcome to continue fighting for it. If you do, you can. If you don't, that's fine too.
But please, don't twist my words around and make it seem that this is my way of trying to stop anyone. It is not.
Whatever you do, as a fan, is your own choice.
I am simply raising the OTHER side of the issue. To keep everyone aware. What they choose to do, is still up to them.
THIS. IS. NOT. AN. ATTACK.
Thank you for your time, and I hope you come to further understand that I am in NO WAY shape or form trying to stop anyone. This is not my

Why so much negativity? BE POSITIVE! :)Okay guys, I don't usually write journals for this group, but I've seen recent journals and comments from people about TJM and about if it's not going to be made, which are really, REALLY discouraging.Why so much negativity? BE POSITIVE! :)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Everything starts with the lastest Craig Bartlett's interview; in a part of it, Craig says that maybe it's not that bad if TJM is not made because that way fans can imagine their own ending and argue about it forever and stuff. Now some people have taken those words TOTALLY literally and they're saying that TJM is not going to be made because Craig Bartlett hinted that and blahblahblah.
And now I wonder...why do you have to be so negative? If Arnold has taught us something, it's to be POSITIVE and always look at the bright side ;D We can't get down just because Craig said 'if TJM is not made maybe it's better because fans can imagine their own ending'! >___

Love of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOSHelloLove of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOS4 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, kiriban (766 666) is VERY close!
At second, Brno's females, Alex and Clair, are in heat now. I went to the ZOO to take some photos - because of mating season, wolves were very excited and active. I had a great chance to watch their fantastic and natural behavior, which included gentle touches, aggresivity (not between alphas and beta, but younger wolves were somehow excited) and mating itself. It was just incredible to observe so intimate moments of the lives of wolves. Thanks to winter, I was totally alone with them - only me and wolves. I would like to share some shots I took - sorry for lower quality, the weather was cloudy and as you can imagine, wolves were moving a lot. Although I took some photos of mating itself, I do not want to post such shots. Not to offend some of my watchers (mating and also eating are absolutely natural for animals ) but to somehow respect privacy of the wolves
Thank you for every it would help me to share this
I will not be subjected to criminal abuseIts time for another story, do you guys want a story? I will give you one. This one is about my early days in the work industry and how you should always becareful and know your legal rights before you head in, you do not want to be subjected to criminal abuse without knowing. This happened a few years back, straight out of Design College, when I was still an 'Amateur Graphic Designer' as they like to call me. So I was searching online for jobs and found one that requires a Graphic Designer with artistic skills who can create original characters as well as making little icons and graphics stuff. I was like HELL YEAH THATS ME, so I sent them my portfolio, back then it had really unprofessional messy drawings and then a few graphic design works and photography bullshit pieces that I threw in here and there to show my 'range', I didn't have a consistant style and I had no idea what people wanted to see lol. So the company saw my work and they told me to come in. I was reallyI will not be subjected to criminal abuse3 years ago in Personal More Like This
New Program: MischiefSo there's this program called Mischief that I feel like not a lot of people may know about right now. I only know about it thanks to my tumblr dashboard.New Program: Mischief2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hmm, to talk about it would be easier in bullet points so let's get to that.
Infinite canvas, resolution, and dimension. It's all specialized textured vector so no matter how small you draw you can export it to a .psd or .jpg of ANY RESOLUTION AND ANY DIMENSION which is pretty fucking amazing and helps those people who can't handle heavy programs or preset resolutions like in SAI or Photoshop.
It's like drawing on paper. Like to me it's really forgiving paper. The select tool is pretty much like a canvas cropping device-- you select and then you can export the selected area as the cropped image. Otherwise it doesn't do nice things like resize, scale, or rotate. (Just yet anyway, I think they're still developing.) So it's a good practice tool.
It's really smooth and pleasant to draw

You’ve been hearing a lot about tags in the past few months, and we’re happy to announce that they’ve just been fully released to Beta Testers.
Tags create landing pages around topics — making it easier to discover related artwork, bringing together artists and art appreciators, and forming communities around common interests. As deviantART grows and creates new ways to discover great content, we believe tags will play an important role in better surfacing artwork.
Tag Your Deviations (and Collections)!
You now have the ability to tag your deviations and Collections. Tags added to your deviations will be publicly viewable -- this is a change from the previous use of keywords, which were private.
SOPA is bad for deviantART and YouIf you spend any sort of time on the internet you may have heard about the SOPA bill being debated around Congress. SOPA, for those not in the know, stands for Stop Online Piracy Act, and in a nutshell it exists in the interest of making it easier for the holders of intellectual property (aka copyrighted materials) to get "theft" of their materials removed.SOPA is bad for deviantART and You4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sounds fair, at first, right? Well the problem lies not necessarily in the intent (protecting one's property) and more in how broad the bill is and how much power it gives law enforcement and the holders of intellectual property.
Again, simplifying things down beyond compare, SOPA would allow a company like Nintendo (who supports the bill) to come upon a site like deviantART and decide that it doesn't care for all of the images of its famed character Mario. So it might say "hey, you guys are harboring theft of our content" and would take quick and easy steps to literally shut us down. All because you uploaded an image of Mario. But
How to source artI'd like to share something here that has been bothering me A LOT lately. The ones that follow me on FB probably know about that. My Elsa drawing got a crazy unexpected popularity and since the first moment I posted it here (and people shared in Tumblr), it's been reproduced over 15 times by people that didn't mention me or at least say "I used an image from internet but I don't know the artist". Nope. They simply took someone else's work, copied/traced it and even dared to say that they're "proud of their work".How to source art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes accidents happen. After all, maaaany years ago I copied another artist's work and didn't mentioned it, but I was 17 years old and hardly ever knew what "art" was X_D I posted it here in deviantART and got a bunch of well deserved comments saying "this is so wrong", "you copied from this artist!", "you are horrible!". Since that moment, I put all my efforts to:
1- Contact the artist and ask for permission to reproduce their artwork.
2- Give credits (it's easy an
