SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?Every single cosplayer in the world has one painful problem that we can all relate to: we're always broke. Always.SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fabric, thread, machines, paints, wood, tools, thermoplastics, LEDs, mould castings, brushes, dyes, wigs, make-up, contacts, boots, prosthetics, convention tickets, travel expenses, luggage, skin care, gym... the list goes on and on. Every single cent we earn, we constantly throw it all back into making our beloved costumes and feeling good for a few hours while stressing for months prior-hand. Non-cosplayers may not get it, but we do. For us, it's not a sacrifice. The chance to hone our creative spirit and create something from nothing is a rewarding life experience. Some think that the cost of an outfit is more valuable compared to medication and psychological sessions.
But like it not, we've all gotta come to a conclusion that the hobby must come to an end for us one day, and to have some money saved up for your next step in life is a greater advantage than having nothi

Yaaaaayyyyy I have my second DDWhat a lovely surpriseYaaaaayyyyy I have my second DD11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I came home from work to find I have been awarded my second DD for my picture
I am so delighted with this
I have to thank :iconCanankk: for suggesting it and :iconKaz-D: for featuring it.
You have no idea how much this has cheered me up.
I suffer from a condition called Labarynthitis which I have been managing with medication for the best part of the last two years.
Well, last Wednesday evening (11th March) I had an accute attack which has knocked me out for the last week. It is only yesterday and today
that I have been back on my feet. It was a depressing few days as I hate being ill and inactive. You can imagine how much I usually
am on the go all the time and I like being active and out there. I always find it scary when I am ill as it is really a very rare event.
Anyway, I am particularly pleased to have been awarded this at the end of a bad week for me.
Thank you so much

'Three's a Crowd' - A Funny Story...I remembered seeing a summary for this once. I believe it had been this particular one:'Three's a Crowd' - A Funny Story...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Twilight's quality time with Princess Cadance is interrupted when she must take care of a sick friend."
When the episode title and the brief summary above were revealed (I don't recall when, but I saw it on EQD back when it first was posted as news), it was before the weekend, when I had to go in to my current job, which is always during the weekend (I know! I rarely get to see the new episodes live anymore XP).
So, I was on my break, and it's usually during that time I have my boyfriend mattwilson83 call me (since my phone plan still has no international calling, while his does. I really need to look into that). During our casually idle chatter for the next half hour of my break, I mentioned the episode itself and how it involved Twilight and Cadance, and the premise based on the summary itself. We just chatted about it casually, while a part of me wondered just who was involved. If it

IT'S CAPALDI!!!What can I say? I'm over the moon about the casting of the 12th Doctor. As watchers might know, ginger acting powerhouse Ruth Wilson was my first pick, but once the rumors started that Peter Capaldi was in the running (despite his previous appearances in TORCHWOOD and WHO), and the announcement that Wilson was already doing a new series for Showtime, he shot to the top of my list. Even without Whoniverse connections, he was a fave of mine b/c of THE THICK OF IT and, of all things, his recurring role as Sid's dad on SKINS (yes, I watched SKINS- deal with it). He's also an old school Whovian. Like Tennant, he's "one of us", living out a childhood dream. That's ridiculously cool. The guy even has a freakin' Oscar, making him the first Doctor to hold that distinction (look it up).IT'S CAPALDI!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

There is a way to avoid this though, if you ever get an email from nobody@Da.com or something like that, asking you to change your passwords, don't do it, it's a trick to get your account hacked, just delete the email as soon as possible.
IF A PERSON CALLED SIMON ASHTON ( SIMON25@HOTMAIL.CO.UK ) CONTACTS YOU THROUGH EMAIL DON'T OPEN THE MESSAGE. DELETE IT BECAUSE HE IS A HACKER!!

Considering Earth HourBefore you decide to turn off every electronic device/ appliance in your household, consider the following.Considering Earth Hour4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Your local power plants constantly generates power, which are distributed through your neighborhood's transformers, and eventually end up in your home at a fraction. These power plants operates on a 24\7 schedule, and the amount of energy they create are not stored in an abundant level, except in the case of fail-safe protocols does a power plant provide minor backup electricity.
SO, by turning off all the electricity in your home, while saving bills on an economic level, does not dictate the fact that you are actually preserving energy. You are just simply not using the constant flow of electricity coming from your local provider.
Secondly, should you participate in total shutdown during Earth Hour, please consider that turning the power back on approximately after the end of the hour, may apply an incredible amount of stress on your local transformer. Reason being that there is
