Alcon 2012What an amazing con. It topped last year's Alcon (hence the chant buzzing around the con "Best Alcon Ever") and I was just so happy to be a part of that and meet so many amazing people that my Facebook literally exploded after the con ended. EXPLODED WITH MANLY RELISH THAT IS.

Myself, VandorWolf and Valdrein got into London Saturday morning and after going through the obstacle course that is the International Visitors way through Gatwick airport we were greeted by a sleepy KellyJane who had woken up at 5am or something crazy like that to come get us at the airport (weloveyou). We spent the day with Parle in stinky plane clothes and with about 3 hours of sleep each which just made everything far more magical (except for the magic show we watched in Oxford Circus which was crap...

FioLee part 1It had been almost a year since Cake had moved in with Lord, and I had gotten used to liveing alone. But Cake had been so busy with her kittens that she said she couldn't make it to vist it me on my birthday. I was turning 19, and were I was sad she couldn't come over I wasn't excactly mad, more lonely than anything. Me and Gumball haven't been on the best of terms lately with him confessing his feels all of a sudden and me telling him I wasn't into him anymore. And me and Flame Prince broke up a long time ago we decided that we liked each other as friend more than anything. I woke up after takeing a power nap. It was 9:00pm and where it didn't normally snow here during the winter it did get darker faster. I decided with there being 3 hours left of my birthday I might as well do something. I went down stairs and got a cupcake out of the frige and stuck a candle in it and lite it. I sighed 'I guesse I sould sing happy birthday to my self huh' I thought.

And it goes even further with Worbla.
Today I want to tell you the theme "coloring".
Worbla can be simple paint, varnish or spray. But what only few people know, you can even color Worbla's Deco Art.

Rapunzel's Wig FAQ and an InterviewHey everyone!Rapunzel's Wig FAQ and an Interview3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a while since I last checked in. In fact, it's been so long that I just realised I never posted the cosplay interview I did here (and that was in January!). Japan Cinema invited me to chat to them for a while for their cosplay corner - if you're interested, you can read about it over here.
In other news, I have finally gotten around to doing a photoshoot for Rapunzel! Thank you so much to :iconstrawdoll: for being such an amazing photographer...you're so nice to me :'D And so, since I'm about to attack you all with photos, I figured it would be a great time to finally, finally post the FAQ I've been promising for her wig.

Internet Etiquette (Edited with critique advice)Some people brought up some pretty important points, so I've added some additional information about critiques below!Internet Etiquette (Edited with critique advice)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Something that's been bugging me a bit lately is how the DA community has sorta changed over the years (and not in a good way). People are more bold and will post whatever's on their mind, and while that can be a good thing in some scenarios, I feel that people oftentimes say things that they might not realize will hurt someone's feelings.
I generally get a lot of positive feedback, and it really helps! It's always great to know that someone likes my work, and it keeps me motivated to keep going with this hobby. However, I'm still a human being, and negative criticism can hurt me just as much as anyone else. I'm not sure what it is, but the amount of really negative comments has increased these past couple years, and it really discourages me from even using this website anymore. Many times I've considered just disabling comments entirely, but I feel that would

Four Years AgoFour years ago, something happened that completely changed the course of my life in a very real, very noticeable way.Four Years Ago3 years ago in Personal More Like This
On the 19th of January 2008, I hadn't really intended to do anything to make my life change so drastically. There was no plan, no preconception, nothing. Things just happened the way they happened, and I wouldn't change it for the world.
On the night of the 19th of January 2008, tealpirate and I started going out.
From that day on, my life was changed. I'd gone from a previously unhappy relationship to one I now was full of hope, excitement and expectation. My previous relationship had me feeling worn out, disillusioned and unhappy by three years or so into the relationship, yet with Jenn, I'm four years in, and still as crazily in love as the day I met her.
So, here's to you, Jenn, and the four fabulous years of life you have already gifted me with. I hope to continue them for as long as I live, and can only hope to bring you the same measure of happiness that you

Show what your favorite xenowoman or xenowomen does during the winter. Are they out in the snow playing, or do they seek refuge inside by the fireplace? Or maybe they are getting ready for Christmas or a similar holiday?

Personally, I hate snow, but I can't think of anything better to brighten the days to come than a load of new xenowomen pictures
Anime Revolution Review + Avatar VideoAnime Revolution ended a few days ago and I'm still riding that con high! In my opinion it was a stellar con with a really clean and professional atmosphere/vibe. It was the con's first year, but to me it ran (and looked) like a much more experienced con. I've heard a lots of criticism of the con, but not from the people I ran into at the con itself. Everyone I came across seemed to be in really good spirits and had a positive opinion of the con. I know that there are some tensions are Vancouver cons at the moment, but in my opinion the more the better! I'm not going to side with one con or another, to me that'd be silly, I want all the cons to succeed cause if my hometown was con central than I'd never be bored!!!

I need a bit of funds to replace some art supplies and to get ready for upcoming cons.

Your commission will be posted here to DA individually and I will tag your DA account in the artist comments along with a reference pic of the character in question (if it's an original character). This way when it's posted you get a bit of publicity ^^ (if you are not c
