On June 5th, the rights to the Yugioh francise is going up for auction.
Funimation, and I think Viz media as well, have shown interest in picking it up. I personally don't mind either company getting it, but Funimation has hinted on their facebook channel that'd they'd like to release an uncut version if they get it. Meaning:
We'd finally get YGO/GX/5D's/Zexal DVDs! Uncut ones!
The final seasons of GX and 5D's will be brought to the US
The show might get redubbed like they did for One Piece
Though, I do know that by redubbing the series, there's a huge chance that a lot (if not all) the characters will get re-casted with different actors. I personally would be a bit sad to see some of my favorite characters voiced by different actors, so I've been trying to spread the word to get Funimation to keep the original cast in mind. I know some actors like Eric Stuart might not be av
Daily Deviation and Wig Video Tutorials on Arda!WHoo~! Journey Journal skin! I'm working on a Journey Cosplay for Ikkicon; it's been something I've wanted to do since I played the game when it came out. If you haven't played Journey, then you should download it to the PS3, buy the collector's edition in stores, or go to a friend's house that has a PS3 and buy/play it. It only takes a couple hours to play through, and it's a unique experience that gives you all the feelz.Daily Deviation and Wig Video Tutorials on Arda!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Onto business, one of my jobs at Arda-wigs is to provide helpful wig styling tutorials. They're available for anyone to use, so check 'em out!
I'll be going over a lot of the easier basics first, but over time I'll get into more advanced stuff. My crazier wig tutorials are still available here in a folder on my profile, so use them to your heart's content. :3
Also, I noticed I got a DD today on Yusei! And it was one of my fav. pictures too! Thanks so much for the support! <333
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!1 year 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*

Cosplay adviceWith each day going by, I am asked more & more on cosplay advice.Cosplay advice2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Lala, can you give me some cosplay advice? I am going to cosplay so-&-so.." (Etc. etc.,)
"I was wondering if you have any tips for me when it comes to cosplaying..?"
I have spent years thinking about how to even respond to this sort of question, there is so much advice I want to give, but I don't want to give it to just one person.
Thus... I am going to lay it all out right here on this journal.
If you are the type to say: "TL;DR" Then go ahead & leave now, or just read tip #4. XD To those who actually want to see what my advice is, continue on this long jolly yellow brick road. (Whether you cosplay Wizard of Oz or not. LOL.)

On Friendship and Being YourselfYears ago, I had mentioned my thoughts on friendship and I really feel the need recently to talk about once more. No I don't plan on being that deep (it's 8:03 right now as I type this and I am a master and not getting up until 9:00 in the morning) nor do I plan on getting in this HUGE journal about it. I just really feel like expressing my thoughts on friendship- namely on the forming of friendships.On Friendship and Being Yourself2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm of the opinion that real friendships are formed naturally. Sometimes they happen automatically. Sometime it happens over time. For me it's a bit of both- I've met friends that I've only talked to once or twice and they are instantly my friends, plus I have friends I've grown to consider friends after quite a bit of time. Thus it really makes me sad to see it when people try to force a friendship on someone. I know it sounds strange but it's happened various times in the past as well as recently.
When you try to force a friendship out of someone it's feels like someone you don't really

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)1 year 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
Discrimination Is OkayNb4 the homosexual radicals cry out: "NUUUU, discremeanation is dah weerst!"Discrimination Is Okay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
~Marriage: Discriminates against incest, polygamy, children, and single people of all ages.

~People who commit certain behaviors or activities are also discriminated against, like murderers, rapists, robbers, armed robbers, drunk drivers, etc.
So... no more whining about discrimination being wrong. That's just plain dumb and NOT true.

When Being Human Just Isn't Enough:icontechgnotic:When Being Human Just Isn't Enough3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The allure of Anthro Art is obvious to anyone who ever “owned” and loved a pet. (Only those who have never loved and shared lives with a pet speak of pet “ownership”!) Once a bond has been formed between a human and an animal the rigid distinctions between what is human and what is animal begin to fracture.
The definition of “being” becomes suddenly far more expansive. And soon the bonded human begins feeling spiritual affinities with the “animal” that are undeniably powerful and as “real” as any felt with other humans. The desire to leave all the lies and hypocrisies of human society behind and join in with a simpler and somehow more “honest” society of different beings in nature can become palpable and intense. “The grass is always greener…” and, oh!, to scamper across it on four liberating paws!

Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:

Ahab's Crosshairs Crude TutorialI'm writing this from memory, so I apologize if it's not very good. Also, I made the gun in probably one of the most inconvenient ways you could do it, so it may be better to disregard this entirely.Ahab's Crosshairs Crude Tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off, materials.
* One board, about 2 1/2 inches thick, around 10ish (estimate) inches tall by however long you want the gun
* One thick dowel, about 6 inches longer than you want the harpoon to be
* One functional pellet-gun scope
* A few short, thin dowels
* Two large bolts
* A ton of wood glue
* ALL the acrylic paint
* Finish spray
1. Sketch out the shape of the rifle onto the wood. I did this by scaling it up from the picture on the MSPA wiki. It took DAYS to get it how I wanted. You will have to cut off the handle.
2. Cut it out.
3. Sketch out the handle on one of the scraps, cut that out too. Attach trigger dowel with a hole and glue.
4. Drill holes where the handle attaches to the gun body. Use wood glue to glue in dowels, then "plug them in" to matching holes in
