The RulesDear followers and visitors of my profile,The Rules1 year ago in Personal More Like This
thank you very much for your long-term support!
Since my follower group is reaching 20.000 now and handling the amount of daily feedback by you lovely people near-term is getting harder and harder. So I'd like to point out some things that make it easier for all of us:
- I can't answer every comment. If I could, I'd do, but that would require to spend hours in front of the laptop, just handling deviantArt. And there is also tumblr, Facebook, etc. Sadly I just don't have the time. Every comment is being read and appreciated! And whenever I find the time, I answer. But there will always be something left unanswered. My sincere apologies on that!
- Answering my notes sometimes takes long, too. For the same reasons as above - lack of time. But every note WILL get answered!
- If you want to get into personal contact with me, send me a note or contact me via tumblr -> http://nanjokoji.tumblr.com/ or Fa
Abunaicon, Alcon and Eirtakon!Howdy y'all!Abunaicon, Alcon and Eirtakon!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, we have three last confirmed conventions we're attending this year... all in totally different places!
Held in the Netherlands, close to Eindhoven. Jenn and I are pleased to be joining Belgian cosplayers Kimi and Katja as the conventions official Cosplay Guests! This'll be our first time visiting the Netherlands, and we really hope to meet some of our followers there, as well as some new friends too!
We have a vague idea of what cosplays we will do, but need to sort some things out first. We'll confirm next month!
We're pleased to be returning to ALcon once again, this time causing cosplay shenanigans with not only Jenna and Lucas, but also their good friend and fellow mischief-maker Courtney! I'm certain multiple lols will ensue.
We're not sure if we'll be doing a big music video again this year... but we WILL be doing photoshoots, and are looking for people to join us in th

My Theory on the Phantomhive past [December 17, 2011]My Theory on the Phantomhive past 3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nothing really went on in the chapter, so I don't have much to go on, but there was one phrase where Undertaker said "Looks like you only make the Earl miserable, after all" that I think contains a deeper meaning. It could just be referring to Sebastian's blunders and strictness towards Ciel's reformation from the past, I don't know, it seems kind of off. Ciel's reaction upon hearing that was one of surprise, which isn't what I would imagine him feeling unless there was some hidden meaning in Undertaker's words that outsiders couldn't detect. Another thing that threw me off was the fact that Undertaker threatened to kill Sebastian because he was a burden to Ciel. Is that him protecting Ciel? Or is it just a top-of-the-head attempt at a goodbye speech? I have no way to tell from Yana's ambiguous way of phrasing things.
Also, the Claudia locket came back again, and we see Ciel recognizing it when it flew past his face. Which just makes me believe that there is

A few people messaged me regarding this. Tonight, I finally got around to watching the video, and I felt I had a moral obligation to spread the word myself.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc Everyone should watch this, and everyone should share this.
Until now, I'd never heard of this man. For over 20 years, he has been snatching African children from their homes, turning the boys into soldiers and the girls into sex slaves. He forces them to kill their own parents, and turns them into his own personal army.
To this day, he hasn't been captured. Most of the world don't even know his name. Until tonight, I was one of them.
Please spend 30 minutes of your time to watch this, and spread the word. If we could only remove a single evil individual from the world in our lifetime, this guy would likely be top of my list.
The internet is one of the single most powerful tools that mankind has ever had, as an international community.

First of all, let me warn you that by the end of this journal entry, you may find yourself sick of my face. (If you aren't already.) I'll be using mostly myself as an example for the things I'm going to discuss, because I'm the only person I can poke fun at without restrictions.
I get asked a lot of questions about these cosplay photos that most of you have come to know me for. Sometimes it's about the techniques we use, requests for tips and advice for other people who want to do something similar. Other times, the comments come from people who aren't familiar with cosplay, but are curious about it and are interested to know more. So I thought of making this li

Devious Journal EntryI just suffered shock at advice I saw being given to a convention goer of how to keep her energy levels up while at a convention...Devious Journal Entry1 year ago in Personal More Like This
- Hold soda in your mouth for a few seconds before swallowing it, as your mouth absorbs the sugars quicker
- Drink OJ with sugar added to it
- Honey sticks
Basically, the advice given was "SUGAR, AND LOTS OF IT!"
I don't know what people are taught about health in the USA, but clearly it's VERY different to the UK. People, PLEASE don't live on sugar at a convention! Not only is it bad for your teeth, but bad for your health, and it's NOT the best source of energy there is!
Eating regularly and healthily, especially wholemeals, will provide you with a much healthier and long-lasting source of energy. Sure, you may get a brief rush from a Red Bull, but you'll have a crash as well. I know none of us take the best care of ourselves at cons, but at least TRY to get in a decent breakfast, lunch and dinner. And drink plenty of water!!
And definitely don't ad

I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!
I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^ That said, hope you enjoy! *chu*

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.

On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah ~sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a

Is it better to possess a thing of beauty, or to experience the ultimate consummation of oneness with that beautiful thing by actually consuming it... and being left only with the memory of its beauty?
