These dormitories are exclusively for the first year students in the beginner program. The building was constructed with millions of human and other paranormal bones, and the furniture inside is made from carved bone.
These dormitories are for the second year students engaging in intermediate level classes. Blood spews from the faucets and showers for a couple of minutes before clearing, and the surfaces have blood beneath them, hidden below clear crystal.
These dormitories are for third year students studying advanced level classes. This building was constructed using gravestones. It is very haunted by the spirits of those graves that were disturbed in the making of it. And there might literally be a skeleton in your closet.
These dormitories are for fourth year students studying expert level classes. The dormitor
Otto the Steampunk OctopusI mean, with a title like that, how can you not get excited?Otto the Steampunk Octopus2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Brian Kesinger's already made his mark in the animation world while working for Disney, but he's breaking out of that mold with a story of his own, revolving around an unlikely couple, Victoria and her fabulous pet octopus, Otto, following their daily adventures. They're downright adorable. Brian's work has always impressed me, and this project is no exception.
I can't really articulate my love for these characters... they're so charming, and portrayed in Brian's fresh take on a classic style, I don't know what's not to love - and I just can't wait for his book to come out! So if you haven't already, head over to his page and check out more of his work!

As of now, my brain is too fried to write up a proper journal entry about our volcano GARventure, and one of my usual event reports (as you can see on the right side of my journal) about Cosplay Mania, but I'd like to take this chance to share a part of our lecture of sorts at the Cosmania cosplay workshop last Sunday.
China snowpeachdrop, Kat moonlightflight, El rosiael and I were invited to talk about general cosplay planning, like fabric selection, wig styling, cosplay makeup and photography. My friends might post the other parts, but for now here is our silly guide about posing for cosplay photos, and convention etiquette. The actual presentation was actually longer, and with lots more examples, but here is a condensed rundown of what we talked about, fo

So I'll be at Katsucon the weekend after this, for Friday only (just going down for the day with some friends). If you're awake at 9 am on Friday, you can catch me at the gazebo with the big Sakizou cosplay group! I'll be dressed as Alice, so just look for the Alice with the toy white rabbit. :3 Katsucon is in National Harbor, Maryland, at the fabulous Gaylord Hotel.
So that's all fun and good, but also I wanted to mention a thing on here about something I hear all the time. I get a lot of feedback from fans who, for reasons unknown to me, bemoan the fact that they wish they looked like me or were popular like me. Seriously. People say this. I can't count how many girls write to me and say they wished they were me, because they feel they're not pretty or outgoing enough. I have nothing but sympathy for young people, especially girls, who feel they aren't attractive or well-liked, or feel like outsiders in their school or social

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.

Posing! Tips ~I did these instructions 2 years ago, but I still think they're kind of good I hope you like!Posing! Tips ~8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Posing is crucial for getting an awesome cosplay photo! You should be aware of the basics before you go on a photoshoot. At a convention people are going to want to take pictures of and with you, practice your posing and you'll like the pictures that pop up on facebook afterwards!
Note where there is a source of light, and capture it with your face.
Don’t just stand there! Twist your body a bit and it will come to live in pictures! If you just stand there your hips will look wider than if you twist your body! :3
Beware of your limbs when posing. An arm that’s just hanging there can easily look like a deadweight.
On the subject of arms it’s important to notice how awkward the “hands behind your back”-pose can look. It’s always difficult to know what to do with your arms and hands. If you have a prop it will come more natural (or if your character has a sig
