Our London deviantMEET Was Brilliant!On Saturday, June 14, 2009, deviantART held a deviantMEET at the Albert Memorial in Hyde Park. Over 350 deviants showed up to celebrate all things deviantART, setting a record for the highest attended deviantMEET in history in the process... until now.Our London deviantMEET Was Brilliant!2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Almost exactly three years later -- on Saturday, June 30, 2012 -- at the same location in Hyde Park, London deviants once again turned up in droves. Smashing the previous record, our London deviantMEET 2012 saw over 550 deviants throughout the day.
Most deviantMEETs include a group photo, usually taken towards the end of the event's festivities. However, we wasted no time taking our group shot in front of the Albert Memorial, as we wanted to ensure we were complying with Hyde Park's rules and regulations for large gatherings. With a group this massive -- and awesome -- it's hard not to draw attention!
Full sized hats?!:iconohnoesplz:Full sized hats?!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well Tiny Toppers ( I've been dying to say that XD) I have an exciting announcement!!
We've begun to make FULL SIZED Top Hats! :iconsobeautifulplz:
I'm so excited to announce this because I know it's been suggested to us a lot and we've thought about it a lot as well and we just decided to go for it! We've already made a full sized Classic Mad Hatter and I will probably post pictures of it tomorrow ^__^
I'm excited to see what everyone thinks, and if everyone has a favorite hat they'd like to see turned full size!! ^___^ Which hats do you think would go over best in full top hat form? :iconawwwplz:
I can't wait to hear everyone's thoughts
Anyways, That's all for now! We will be attending a few cons in the upcoming weeks, but I'll write another journal about that ^_^ I just couldn't wait to tell everyone
I hope you're all staying fancy, keeping your pinkies up, and waxing your mustaches

Family RecipeOn such a chilly spring day as today (all of 10degrees Fahrenheit as I type this) the urge to bake something often arises. Most times it gets squashed by other weekend chores, but today it is refusing to go away, so I went through the cards and handwritten recipes to see what I wanted to make.Family Recipe1 year ago in Personal More Like This
One in particular caught my eye today, an old recipe "fragment" that I copied from my grandmother's recipe cards. The title is simply "Egg Bread" and the entirety of the fragment is just the list of ingredients. Thankfully I can remember how to put it together, and I hope I can remember how hot and how long to bake it.
Since I found it, I figured I might as well share it with the people who watch me, as it is very yummy.
1 1/2 cup warm milk
1/2 cup warm water
2 Tbsp yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
6 to 7 1/2 cups flour
1 egg yolk
Instructions (or what I remember of them)
Dissolve sugar in warm milk and stir in yeast. While waiting for yea

Miniaturists, unite!I haven't met a single miniaturist in deviantART that hasn't made the same question at least once: Where do I submit my work?.Miniaturists, unite!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Whether you make dolls, furniture, clothes, props, food, scenery, buildings, trains, wargaming miniatures, models, dollhouses or many other miniatures I'm surely forgetting, at some point or another there's no appropiate gallery to submit our work. Artisan Crafts / Ceramics, Pottery & Clay / Miniatures is only appropriate if you use clay, and the next best option, Traditional Art / Sculpture doesn't make the cut most times.
As renowned artist Snowfern so eloquently stated: "as I'm moving on to different mediums, I really do wish dA had some scale dollhouse miniature section right now, I can only post my mini clay work under clay -> miniatures, so everything else is quite random, like my 1:12 books are under....bookmaking??".
I'm sure we've all felt like this at some point, and ou
COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!Hi guys!! Thank you as always to all watchers and everyone who faves and comments - I'm so sorry I don't have much time these days to reply to everything, but I definitely do read and appreciate them all!COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
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*
Any questions please feel free to ask!

Colouring Book Pre-orders OPEN [UPDATE]Colouring book Pre-orders openColouring Book Pre-orders OPEN [UPDATE]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
UPDATE: 03/03/2011: Hi all and thanks for all of your patience~! I have a bit of news of the colouring book that isn't necessarily bad, I just need to change it a bit.
The tutorial that was to be included within the book is now being included as a pamphlet, rather than pages in the book. The tutorial is still in full colour and the same size as the book as originally planned, so you're getting exactly what you paid for, it just isn't stapled within the book pages.
The reason for this is because when I get a colour book printed, for example, say I have a 60 colour book and only 5 pages of colour and the rest are in black and white. Even if only 5 pages are in colour, I still have to pay for a 60 page full colour book. And that is *very* pricey.
I hope this is not too much of an inconvenience to everyone.
The books will be sent out by the 10th hopefully! Thank you everyone!
UPDATE 19/02/2012: Thank you everyone for your support so far!! I will be tak
Part 2I can't wait! I want to start Web in Vogue: part 2 this week. I've already made the websites-list.Part 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Have you ever noticed that MANY sites use blue colours? I noticed looking through many popular communities XD it's been pretty hard deciding what websites will be included into the collection, I like blue but I can't make a whole collection in blue, maybe one day I will do it but web in vogue must be colorful.
Today me and my parents talked about what to do when I will finish the highschool... Probably I will leave Genoa and go to Milan (yeeeah), and enroll to a fashion university or something like that.. but it will be very expensive, so I will have to find a little job and an apartament. But honestly.. yeah I want to learn everything about fashion and about making clothes, but.. I don't wanna work for someone else in the fashion world, though it would be for Gaultier or Dior, maybe for a few months.. But I'm an artist, I work for myself and for the ones who love my work. I want.. I NEED
Going to Florida~!Vacation BreakGoing to Florida~!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just writing a journal entry to let you know I'm going to be gone from the 20th to the 1st. I'm going to Florida! \o/
I haven't been there since I was 6 or so. Ichi and I are going; my parents just retired so they rented a house down there and we are staying with them for a while. Disney World, Universal, shopping, all the fun recreational stuff! This is the second really "nice" trip I've ever been on, so I'm excited (but also scared of crossing the border considering my previous troubles...).
Also I'd like to check out a Sanrio store at some point because I've never been *_*
I will have internet there so I will be able to reply to emails and messages and things, but like I just said on my edited colouring book journal entry, I will not be able to confirm any payments that are coming through mail, for the time being. Sorry about that~
Maybe I'll even be able to do a livestream down there, that'd be nice \o/
I will take lots of pictures. TvT

OKAY! So, here's the first ever OC contest to be hosted by me~~ I wanna see how other people would draw my OCs (this is why... )
Anything under the sun! Or even the moon. LOL. Anything you could think of! XD
The artwork can ONLY either be drawing/ painting/ 3d art! Sorry but no photomanipulations, photos, sculptures, animations, literature etc... and it is also important that the work will be in anime/manga style and not realistic, western cartoons...
You'll just have to draw any of my OCs here... (it's a shame they haven't got a name yet. I'll try to give them later for easy identification.) The maximum number of characters per entry will be five... and the minimum is, of course, one.

Amanda Todd thangOkay, so im actually getting spammed with journals now. It seems like a good time to make a personal opinion about this.Amanda Todd thang1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So basically if you haven't been on as much, it's about this girl who suicided because she had been bullied for years, beaten up, threatened, she attempted to suicide alot, and at last, she succeeded, and here's the whole video about it or so: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgDqKCM0_o8
I don't want to write a long paragraph, and I notice that i see some of my watchers getting bashed or bashing others cause they differ, and free feel to submit your opinion in the comments, but here's a copy and pasta that has my whole entire personal thoughts of this.
"Over ten million people commit suicide every year.
Some of them are proud US soldiers who commit suicide to avoid dying at the hands of enemies, some of them are grieving parents, some people are abused every day at home, and some are important businessmen.
Out of all those people, America focuses on a girl who killed h
What is Tegaki Messenger you askLots of people have asked me before what tegaki messenger is.What is Tegaki Messenger you ask2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, dear watcher, meet tegaki.
It's a pretty much simple "chat" messenger, but instead of typing (which you can do as well) you draw. Then you click send and it sends a drawing message to the receiver. The message is received instantly or with a few seconds delay by the other person.
It's pretty fun to use but I don't think it's that popular.
So, now that you know give it a try!
Daily Deviations UpdateHappy Monday MorningDaily Deviations Update2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I started this morning by signing something "Moonbam13" so either this typo means I need more coffee, or this week is going to be BAMTASTIC!
I'm rooting for the latter
I wanted to post a quick update on changes to Daily Deviations. It is important to note that these changes have not been hard-coded so my team is manually following these new guidelines. This means that errors can and likely will occur until the coding is complete, your patience and understanding is appreciated
The following guideline changes are in effect:
The 3-month rule is now the 6-month rule, meaning that it must be at least 6-months since the last time an artist received a daily deviation. (This was an overwhelmingly popular suggestion from the community and I agree, it's a good one!)
Daily deviation selectors may only select one daily deviation per day maximum. This has been put in place to focus on Quality vs Quantity.
