Notes: (1) Always buy large skeins on wig construction, especially 1-or-2 toned wigs
(2) 2 Medium skeins will cover leg and arm warmer needs (color variations vary the amount used)
(3) Tail belts should never be more than 3 shades, and always wide enough to fit over your hips (its easier just to slip them n using a double knot than tying them every time and worrying that they'll slip off)
(4) Yarn left over from wig and warmer construction can be used to make the tail belt and shoulder fluff
(5) If 'Prom' gloves aren't handy, 'princess' dress up gloves from children's play sets can be used, or (if you have the skill), one can be made from an old knee sock or a stretchy shirt.
(6) $ 50 = unitard
$ 16-30 = 6-12 Skeins of yarn (dependent on color and character)
$ 6-10 = wig base
$ 17-30 = shoes (Jazz or Gymnastic,)
$ 20-40 = makeup
$ 10-30 = costume paints
$ 20-60 = various t

Cliff sat in his room silently staring at his desk. Paper sat in front of him and he knew that he needed to write SOMETHING. The fact was that it wasn’t just something that he needed to write…he actually had a request to follow up on. Ever since she’d drawn all those pics for his site, Cliff had been given one or two requests from Hannah. The first one, about Rebecca Anderson meeting Hannah’s OC, Kokoro had been simple enough. The second one about Kokoro’s origins had been a bit more difficult, but also as fun. Now he was in the middle of his third and final request. His mind was drawing a blank on how to write it out.
“Ugh…I need a drink.” Cliff got up from his chair with a frustrated grunt and walked to the kitchen and pulled out a can of Pepsi. Just as he was about to pour it into a glass of ice, he heard a familiar sound.
Cliff jumped at the sound of the doorbell. Who could it be? His mind began to fantasize about who it

The shock of having wet themselves, and the discomfort involved, made changing the two rather painless. Becky and Mike stood staring at each other, in total disbelief of what had just happened. Neither spoke, but neither needed to. They were trapped here, and it seemed as though there was no way out.
Mike thought to himself, "I should have no said sumthin mean."
Becky stood grimacing, clearly unhappy with her husband, and being forced to do something that only a little girl had to do.
"Ima big girl," she repeated to herself, even if futile.
The woman stood over them, pleased with her work so far.
"Now you kids won't make any more messes. Aww you look as cute as I had hoped."
"Hoped?" Mike thought, "was dis mean lady plannin dis da whole time?" he said to himself.

Jerry was the typical average high school student. He made decent grades just enough to get him through and had some friends. But Jerry had a problem, he would always be late to school. So much that the kids and students even nicknamed him for it. He had been so late he nearly had to repeat a grade for it. But one day, it would be his last time being late.
"Oh jeez why am I always late?" Jerry asked himself racing up into the school. He turned the hallway and raced into his class. The teacher obviously saw him when he came in and handed him a pink slip.
"Here you go, late as usual." She said while Jerry slumped into his desk.
The school day went by fast as Jerry looked at the pink slip. It was from the principal. He was to come to her office directly after school. Which is when he heard the bell ring and the kids head out for home, except him.
"Oh jeez, why me. I'm a good person. Sometimes." He joked to himself making his way down the now empty hallway. "Seems like everyone left in a h

The satellite beeped once every second as it slowly made its way around the blue planet. Sputnik belonged to the U.S.H.R., more commonly known as Hooviet Russia, and was also the first satellite in space. As it floated above the country of Equestria, the satellite paid no attention to the raging hurricane below. After it floated to the other side of the planet, a star seemed to shimmer beyond the moon, getting bigger and bigger. Before long, it flew past the moon to show that it was, in fact, not a star, but a large comet. It flew towards the storm taking place over Equestria and entered the planet's atmosphere through the eye of the storm.
Meanwhile, somewhere off the coast of Trotwell, a wooden fishing boat was caught in the storm. It rose and fell with the waves as a fretful pink pony tried to control the waterlogged boat. He grabbed a radio and yelled at the speaker, "Mayday! Mayday! This is the Pride of Celestia, I've lost my bearings and I'm taking on water! My last good reading

"Eh!" I grunted at Raziel, scouring the various crap around the room in complete and utter boredom. He pretty much just gave up on trying to actively hide what things were about, what he did and didn't tell, as long as it didn't get personal. So I was free to point and grunt at what I wanted to know, and he'd tell me. This time, it was a small silver cross, about an inch high, with some sort of description on the bottom in a language I wasn't sure was real. Flipping it onto the back, I could see it was a pin of some sort.
"You get that for graduating the Angelic Academy" He sat on the couch, half aware, half zoned out, late on a Sunday night.
Snickering lamely, I placed the item back on the shelf, looking around curiously at whatever else I could learn.
Fourth months had passed since the goat demon, things remaining generically peaceful. Every now and then Raziel had to check in with Gauzier, what he'd exorcised, any problems he'd had, what he'd be

My dream was filled with colored skies, of clouded spires, of flying. The sky was painted in hues of green as more color mixed in further up, clouds reaching high above me, ending only as they drifted out of sight. It was a perfectly endless sky as I walked beneath, taking tentative steps. The sun warm, the day calm; wind blew beautifully. It was something I missed, the wind. It was accepting and reassuring at the same time, showed you how you truly existed, how life was able to move around you as an actual thing. More then that, it was the essence of vitality, the force that never grew still; I pined for it dearly in my waking hours. But this was not reality.
With unbridled joy I began to run, feeling it all, the grass underneath my feet, the wind, the sun, the air of everything around me, so alive. My heart pounded out of my chest, eyes open as I ran, stretching my limits, passing and conquering each hills as I ran past it

"Leave." He said coldly, walking slowly towards me, weapon outstretched "This is not a request, it's not a joke, and it's not a ploy. I don't want you hiding in the yard, I don't want you thinking everything's fine, I just want you to get the hell out of my home, NOW!" Gauzier chuckled, leaning against the wall. Something was wrong here, this was not all his decision; it couldn't be. The guy I knew, who I'd spent nearly four months with, this wasn't him.

Another football game thundered upstairs, the priest practically screaming at the new, much bigger, much more testosterone-aggravating TV in the quiet room, it was too large to put in his bedroom any longer. At least this time, we were both well aware how to skirt this situation, to keep it as benign as an angel beating the shit out of a punching bag, pretty much envisioning my face on the front of it, could be. There'd been a buying excursion, purchasing a new tv, a punching bag, and a new mailbox, along with other little bits of shit along the way. "C'mon, you call that punching? PUNCH, you sissy!" I yelled at him as he stopped, resting against the bag with his glare slowly panning my way. Not that he could understand anything, but you can tell an insult just by the gusto you put into it.

I took the child away from Naruto, giving him a small peck on the cheek. "Is Naru being an over protective daddy again?" I smiled at the pouting Naruto. "My over protectiveness is keeping our son alive." He flicked the bug to the side and walked past us.

Eika felt uncomfortable in this city. It was not the people themselves. It was not because she did not know this city. It was just this constant feeling of loneliness that accompanied her for a long time which she could never get rid of. She knew she was different and the people around her seemed to feel that too. They avoided her, ignored her. But that was not the thing that hurts most. And sometimes she wished that she not had to wear that mask just to make her to look like any other normal human. But she knew it would never be different. What ha

I walked calmly down the pathway, wincing as a branch flicked at a fresh wound. Dew soaked my pelt and fog clouded the dreary sky, and the air was very humid. It was early in the morning, and the full moon glittered in the sky with the last remaining stars.
I stopped at the clearing's edge, flicking my tail without a word. My followed, breathing heavily, stopped as well. Scenting the air, I checked if the others had arrived yet. My mouth told me that no one else was in the clearing with the large stone, where I and four others had been named Leaders just a moon ago. My paws tingled with anxiety, itched to walk down the hillside and claim my place on the rock. But my mind told me to wait, so I did.
Still as a mouse, I flicked my gaze around the rim of the scoop in the earth, spotting a familiar black-and-white feline. Shadow. Or should I call her Shadowstar, seeing as we had all been renamed at the First Gathering. That night all cats had fought, and I was one of the f

He turned around, "hello?" He didn't see anyone so he kept preparing his ramen.
"Narutoooooo" he heard behind him.
Naruto turned around quickly, completely terrified, "whose there?! S-Sakura?! Kiba?! Shikamaru?! This isn't funny!" he said as he looked around.
Suddenly he felt someone tap his shoulder. He slowly turned around and saw a familiar face, with long, spiky, white hair, and carrying a giant scroll on his back.

Humanity has struggled through the tribulations of the galaxy, the Secessionist Migrations, the Optimist Incursion, the Slave-God Wars, and most recently the Great Citizenship. But despite all this, the nations of men stand strong, their empires seem stand on feet of granite, and national anthems written long centuries ago echo heartily through alien lungs and jaws.

His titan violently shook forward and backwards while the Hammer transport continued its flight. Through repetitive nervous routine, Jacob looked to his right and double checked his ammunition count and weapon condition. The pack on his Titan held an even number of six thousand bullets. He nervously insured that his safety was off and his LMN was in full auto mode; which was mute because that was the only mode available on the unholy chain gun.

On 23 August 2164, the Orion Federation was born in an act of defiance. The EU Colonial Administration Building was overrun by surprisingly well-armed, well-trained, and well-armored Orion troops, the Marine detachment overwhelmed in a bloody firefight, and the message sent to the EU to bugger off. Word spread quickly, and soon many other European colonies began agitating for independence. Persian, Indian, and Australian colonies followed suit over the next six months, and the Pee-Dee-Bees (Powers-Dat-Be) back home were knocked back out of their socks. To their credit, the Aussies handled it very well, negotiating with their colonies and managing to keep most of them. Those that were adamant about independence were granted it in a decade-long transition period that worked out fairly well for all parties concerned. The Persian and Indian governments followed the Aussie example with their colonies in the Tarsus Corridor, but were unable to retain
