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.

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

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 053 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

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'! >___

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 abuse2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

Favorite Journal Entries that you may have missedHiya Ryceballs. You know, other than drawings and putting up polls about showers, there's one other thing that I love doing on Deviantart, and that is writing journals! I love writing stuff, sharing my thoughts, sharing stories, ranting about stuff, making fun of stuff, doing top 10s. And I have been told that people likes reading it, that definately puts a smile on my beautiful face. But but but but butt I do know that some of you are new to my Deviantart! And maybe some of you just missed some journals, in total I have over 400 journal entries so far so I wouldn't blame ya for missing them! SOOO I have decided to pick some journals of mine that I like and share it with you guys once again. This may be nostalgic for those who followed me since day 1, and something refreshing for those who has never read them before. I also do apologize for how bad the templates layouts for some of these are, some of these makes your eyes hurt after reading..

Hug all the AnimalsAbove is me and the Hitler cat (I am the one with the hat) at the Melbourne Cat Cafe that I visited a few days ago, marking it the second time I ever touched a cat, the first time being just two years ago. Its not that I don't like cats or anything, but I just never had the chance to. And after having a conversation with my friend Snacky-Bites about pets, I have decided to write about pets I used to own. From as early as I can remember. WARNING: May contain tear jerking moments.Hug all the Animals1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Startin with a pair of rabbits I used to own when I was around 6. I remember my parents bought me two fluffy white rabbits from the local street markets in Hong Kong. Yeah i know, not in a pet shop but in the street market? Now i think about it, it seems a bit odd. Not sure if its even legal! Don't you need a proper license shop with a roof at least? We might as well buy it from a man with sun glasses and hat in the back alley with rabbits inside his long coat. But I digress. So two rabbit
P S AALRIGHT SO… Back in January I dealt with some imposter-ing around the web. I did lose access to one my email accounts, and then my Skype and a some small sites. This didn’t affect tumblr, DA, FA, HF, or any of my sites. I permanently lost access to my Photobucket and Xanga, but I haven’t used those since highschool soooo… yeah… anyway… Skype was the ONLY one I recovered. But in general, if you talk to someone on Snapchat or Steam or Xbox or the PSN or forums or WHATEVER, it’s not me. Like I’m sorry, but it’s not. PLEASE be careful when giving gifts to these players and people. Do not agree to art trades, commissions, etc etc. If’s not a site linked on my hub or you’re not talking to me on Skype (which unfortunately is NOT slugbox, because someone else has that), then it’s NOT ME.P S A1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Being paid to be an artistHello everyone!Being paid to be an artist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been considering something for a long time, and I'd really like to get something in the works for this with my business (which is in support of artists who work for pay) such as a magazine, newsletter type thing or a blog to help represent artists who want to get moniez. I really want to get across the following points, but in a more uplifting and inspiring way. Something that people can read when they're lost on this topic.
But here's my emotionally obese rant on the subject.
I am getting increasingly sick of people who say the following sorts of things:
'Being an artist should come from the heart, not from your money'
'You're not an artist if you're being paid'
'Why should I pay THAT MUCH for your work?'
Moving on to Printing!!!!CHAPTER FOUR IS OVER!! A big, huge, thank you to KatieHofgard for helping me bring this chapter for life and for illustrating it so marvelously!Moving on to Printing!!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to be taking a few months off from 100 Deeds so I can spend some money on getting the first four chapters printed for everyone! This time off will also give me and the next artist time to start prepping for Chapter 5 so we can get some pages done before we begin posting.
Don't worry! We'll still be active with some mini comics for everyone to view
Does anyone have any recommendations or places where they've printed books before? I've been looking but don't feel like I've found the right fit for 100 Deeds just yet.
We'll also be making other things available, like mugs! I've got one that I have for Chapter 3 and it's my favorite mug to drink out of. I'm hoping to have a mug available for every chapter with a panel from that chapter on it. So get excited! I'll post pictures of mine so everyone can see what they'd like to buy.
Defending Paid Artists~Another rant about the world of business within art~Defending Paid Artists1 year ago in Personal Journal More Like This
Recently I've been seeing a lot of people defend artists such as witchpaws, who take considerable sums for their designs and artwork.
It's great that we have decent sums of money going to the cause of earning from your art, because we need more people to realise that being an artist should be a profitable job.
However, while it is great to defend in comments (no pitchforks though) and protest in the deviations that the work is 'worth it' - we should also focus on the root of the issue.
There are two roots to the problem of this:
1) Undercharging artists
2) Uneducated masses
The general consensus for charging (starving) artists is that art is not a job. It's not serious, it's a hobby. It's childish, it's not worth your hours.
Yet we are still able to get high paying jobs, we are able to get degrees and PhDs in our subject.
We are the ones who designed everything around you - that monitor you're reading this on, for starters.

No I don't need any help now lol
It's... kinda sad to see that my last entry was back in Aug, and it was about theft... but I just found out something new today.
I kinda got over (more like gave up) about this, but I found this rather amusing so I want to share with you guys.
As some of you may know, I have a FB account (which I don't log in that often /shot) and I happened to log in today... and I found a message in my inbox sent back in November.
It was a note from "one of the owners" of this online shop. I took a glance at it and she wrote it in proper English that I could actually read, and it started off in a friendly way - I thought it was a good start, but then I read the rest of the note and I just had to laugh at it.
Basically it said the following:
* "we did not publish your design as ours", but they print them on shirts when customers ask them to.
* "where they (customers) get the design and how they got it is beyond our contr
