I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!

Tell us what defines you as a person.
I'm part nature nut, part OCD, and part goofy nerd. It's an odd combination but my love for nature (animals in particular), art, and obsession with detail is what drives me to make photo-realistic paintings. I love to paint in traditional mediums, to feel the paint, to become it. My dedication to it and my pas
WIP - Ahri League of Legends Tutorial/TipsSorry for not updating for a long time.WIP - Ahri League of Legends Tutorial/Tips2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This journal is gonna talk about how I actually made my Ahri Costume. I am not pro so my method is gonna waste a lot of fabric like I did.
I used Miyuko's Version as a references because the official paper is a bit small. I believe you can easily get references now because lots of people cosplayer Ahri before.
Materialswill only stated out major materials that you will need to buy, instead of finding them lying around at home.
-Red Matt Satin or printed satin(this work best because of the floral effect, I am out of option SO I used a thick satin instead.
-White Fabric of your choice, feel confortable with it.
-Yellow Satin or printed satin (same reason)
-Bias tape ( if you're using satin then get a satin bias tape)
-Patterned Ribbon/Tape (silver)
-Knitted China Accessories/Red Tassels.
-Big Golden Bell
I start out with the easiest thing - skirt . I draft this free hand.
Just draft the shortes

2011 Europe tripThis took forever but I'm finally getting down to blogging about it! I've been looking for someone to tour Europe with, but unfortunately schedules are hard to match and money doesn't come by easy. Been wanting to visit Europe for the longest time, and last year I thought, if I don't go now, I may never have the chance to go. So I made up my mind to recce on my own, and in two weeks I was off on a plane! I didn't plan to go overseas for my graduation trip, so I shall reflect and relive last year in place of that XD2011 Europe trip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thoughts like "what the heck am I doing" did occur to me on the plane, but they were quickly taken over by the fear and excitement of exploring unknown lands 8D Since I was flying alone, next to me sat a Chinese lady who was working in Rome. We got to know each other a little better over the 13-hour flight, and she very kindly offered to drive me from the airport to my hostel ;v; I'm forever grateful towards her, as she made me feel safe and comfortable from the very start o

Vocaloid Cosplay Meet-up?Hello everyone! I would like to plan a meet-up for Vocaloid cosplayers in Arizona, because really, we don’t get to wear our cosplays out enough. …At least, I know I don’t. >.< So this would be kind of like how the Lolitas do meet-ups, where everyone gets to wear their outfits and hang out together. And since I love Vocaloid, I thought it would be cool to go to something like that for it. Only it didn’t seem like anything like this existed already, so I decided to get the ball rolling, and organize this thing!Vocaloid Cosplay Meet-up?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think it would be best to get a general idea of how many people would be interested in attending before we decide on the location, activity, date, etc. For example, if it’s a large group, maybe we could go to a park or something, since it would be sort of awkward to go to, say, the mall, with a group of 20-30 people. >.

Night at the gallery by pavboq
It’s been described as similar to the experience of “love at first sight,”
When you meet a person who seems to in every way embody everything admirable, honorable, intellectually engaging, sensually desirable, well–humored… and alive. “A sudden racing heartbeat, dizziness, fainting, confusion and even hallucination” are symptoms you’re
Style, style, STYLE, oh, THE styleWhat do you think about it? In terms of drawing. Is it important to have one of your own? Is it necessary to constantly seek it?Style, style, STYLE, oh, THE style3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've seen people troubled by not having constant style, people thinking their style is not original enough, people making a bold line between their two styles, people trying to get rid of one style...
My humble opinion on this is that you should stop wasting your energy on torturing yourself and just draw. Draw whatever you feel like.
Unless you're being paid for certain style but that's not what I want to talk about now.
What I want to talk about are all those personal pictures you do for self-improvement or supposedly for fun. "Supposedly" because if your main purpose is "fun" I don't get why you should worry yourself with "omg is this style all right what will my watchers say?"
Well, your watchers will get pretty bored if all in your gallery look the same. And also, there's not much space for improvement. Talking from my own experience, I was totally charm

THE AWKWARD CAUCASIAN GUIDE TO TAOBAO.HOW TO USE http://www.taobao.com BECAUSE I HAVE ANSWERED THIS SO MANY TIMES IT'S NOT FUNNY.THE AWKWARD CAUCASIAN GUIDE TO TAOBAO.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Q. I don't speak Chinese, how do I find what I'm looking for?
This is probably the most frequent question I see in regards to Taobao. This question has a three part answer, really.
Part One: Browser.
For people that ask me personally, I tend to recommend using Google Chrome as your browser (at least for Taobao) purely because it has an auto-translate feature. It does translate into some horrendous Engrish, but it does clarify some things a little. If you don't have it and are too lazy to Google it, here is the download link: https://www.google.com/chrome/?brand=CHMA&utm_campaign=en&utm_source=en-ha-aunz-ct&utm_medium=ha.
Part Two: Searching.
If you're looking for something specific, but can't find it, then it's best to conduct your own search. Google translate simple terms such as "red" or "dress"
Another way is to copy and paste the title of a similar item into the search bar.
Think of the children, sir!That moment when you have a new OC prancing around in your head. He had a defined face and a full history. He adorns flaws and flaunts quirky characteristics.Think of the children, sir!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
You can tell people the name of his mother. You can instantly sum up the age difference between him and his older sibling. You can create improvised dialogue for him and tell how this newly born creation would react in varying scenarios.
But you can't pin a name on him.
HE MIGHT AS WELL BE NAKED AND, SIR, JUST WILL NOT DO. For there are underage OC's also occupying the space in my mind and I will not have him flaunting your bits and bobs in their faces. Now, he will have to retire to the back room of my cranium while I search every naming website avaliable to me while I try and find him a suiting title.
Good day, sir.
Random. I know. I'm sure one or two of you feel this pain.
