Remembrance Day FeatureRemembrance Day Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
They shall not grown old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Lest we forget.
The above is an extract from a poem called "For the Fallen" and was written in 1914 by Laurence Binyon. London-born Binyon wrote it 7 weeks after the outbreak of World War 1. British newspapers teemed with the news of the dead who'd fallen in battle, and it was against the backdrop of these bleak days that he wrote this poem. This verse, known today as The Ode for the Returned and Services League [RSL], has been recited at all military commemoration services for almost the last century. 'Lest we forget' is usually intoned at the end as a mark or respect and gratitude for those who served.
There are two such services for which we most associate this poem with: ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day. Today is, of course, the latter.
Remembrance day is he

sry for being so late with updating you with my latest BIG project.
I'm working on this costume since January and finally I see the end of the long tunnel coming XD.
I wanna show you my now finished Saber Gift Figure armor!
If you don't know that version, you can see the reference here ---> http://www.ncsx.com/2009/012609/fate_stay_saber_gift.htm
If you like what you'll see please visit my facebook artist page as well ;D. There are always ALL progress photos form the stuff I am working on ^.^ ->>> http://facebook.com/calssara.cosplay
well let's start with the raw armor parts, completely unpainted.
I used WOBLAS FINEST ART as my material. It's a thermoplastic material with a mix out of plastic and wood. It's close to Wonderflex, but thicker, more durable and it's easier to make round shapes l shoulders, knees and chest plates. You can also melt the material together and use it as thermoplastic modeling clay!
This is my VERY first armor and even a bloody begin
To All The Suicidal People Out There...If you kill yourself, the pain you feel inside you right now, everyone you love will feel it, but ten times worse. Do you really want your loved ones to feel your pain? I know sometimes it seems like the only way. But trust me, you have your whole life ahead of you to do great things. Over seven billion people in the world... and only ONE you. Nobody else could take your place. You might feel useless, rejected, neglected, hated upon, etc. But everyone and everything was created for a good reason. I don't know my purpose yet, and maybe you don't know yours. But I can promise you this: you WILL find your purpose, your meaning in life. You are strong enough to live your whole life, even though there was, is, and always be obstacles. I KNOW you aren't so weak as to kill yourself. Please, be strong and live your whole life. I know it's hard and sometimes you just feel like giving up, but you are stronger than that. And one day you will realize all those bad experiences have helped you becomTo All The Suicidal People Out There...3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Tips para posar con tu cosplayBasado en el tutorial de *behindinfinity http://behindinfinity.deviantart.com/, basicamente traducido xD con algunos aditamentosTips para posar con tu cosplay5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Cosplay no es solo hacer y usar el traje, no nos podemos olvidar de la actitud.
Una parte importante dle cosplay es personificar al personaje, desde la expresión coorporal hasta la facial y la personalidad. Tienes que conocer tu personaje para personificarlo mejor!. Ademas, cuando usas cosplay en una convención es inevitable que quieran tomarte fotos, la foto que tomen es como te recordara la persona que la tomo y las que la vean pues regularmente estas acaban en internet, asi que veamos formas de mejorar esto!
Una sonrisa irreal y fuera de las que utiliza el personaje arruina la foto. Busca imagenes de referencia para que veas que expresiones o poses deberias tomar a la hora de las fotos.

Last year I visited a craft fair and discovered in the paper decoration / paper crafting a super great new material.

But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.
It can be used for paper decoration, for gemstones, paint and much more.

Oh, the Blatent WhoringSo, you're going to a convention, it's a casual day for you, but you would rather dress up like a Kardashian and hang yourself rather than show up without expressing your love for a certain fandom. Well how about a snazzy new shirt? Could Zack Fair help? http://society6.com/KKoji/Zack-Fair_T-shirt#11=50&4=84 or are you more gothic and need to show up everyone with Undertaker? http://society6.com/KKoji/Undertaker_T-shirt#11=50&4=75?

Redesign a character contest!If there's something we love about fan art is how artists take artistic liberties and portray characters in their own style and different scenarios we wouldn't see otherwise. Some people will say that fan art is unoriginal, but from experience there's a lot of creativity involved when it comes to depicting your favourite characters in a different light, deviating from the way they were designed by their creators.Redesign a character contest!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is why, inspired by the Pokedesign Challenge by *CrazyRatty on Tumblr, your friendly neighborhood Fan Art CVs decided to host a fun little contest for you!
How it works:
Pick a character from any fandom you like.
Come up with at least 3 different re-designs for them and put them in a single image.

Feather and Fey Wing ConsturctionSO many characters have wings as part of their design and it can be a daunting task to recreate them for your costume. Whether they're feather or fairy, they can be difficult to do right. We have all seen our fair share of failed and faltered attempts- or even wings that looked pretty good in low light, but did not diffuse light well when back-lit for dramatic photography. Below are some of my favorite tutorials on the subject.Feather and Fey Wing Consturction5 years ago in Personal More Like This

Katsucon and Getting Beat UpHey y'all!Katsucon and Getting Beat Up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

Otto the Steampunk OctopusI mean, with a title like that, how can you not get excited?Otto the Steampunk Octopus3 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!
