Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)
Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls). Place the dumplings in a (vegetable) steamer and steam them on high heat for 10 min. Cool the dumplings and skewer them in bamboo sticks. (3-4 dumplings each stick.)
Making the sweet sause:
Mix water, sugar, and soysauce in a pan and put it on medium heat. Mix the water and katakuriko starch in a cup an
Thanks for the birthday wishes!You guys are seriously too awesome lol. I got a ton of llamas and messages and even a few gift pictures just because Jan19 was the day I was born lol.

I saw the Chrysler Building when I was by Bryant Park so that was nice.Thanks for the birthday wishes!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

FAQ time!Since I tend to get asked a lot of the same questions through our videos or at cons, I decided to answer a few of them here. Most of them are related to Grell, Kuroshitsuji, or the Grell Show in some way. So without further ado....here you go!FAQ time!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Where do you get your Grell contacts?
I get all of my contacts from a company caleld Exotic Lenses http://www.exoticlenses.com/. I have never had an issue with any of their products, and believe me, I have tried several other companies out there. But Exotic Lenses products have never irritated my eyes, and they're so comfortable that half the time I forget I'm even wearing contacts. The style I use to always use for Grell are "Louis" (those pale green ones), but I recently switched over to a new style called "Mad Hatter" (as seen in my Ophelia pic).
Where do you get your sharp Grell teeth?
The veneers set that I use is from a site called Dental Distortions http://www.dentaldistortions.com/, and the style is actually called "Grell". They are a bit
GoodByeNot being heard,GoodBye7 months ago in Personal More Like This
when I never said anything,
For I cut off my tongue
I said so much,
and I got none.
Comments or questions,
A simple hello,
Instead it was a silent scream
I don't care,
Breath someone Else's air
Sing another song,
Don't be here,
We don't care.
I'm not entertainment,
No, this feels like torment,
A bitter sweet plate
An winged lover tasting a devils game
My life is well, but it is not,
For I starve in places
When I am full in some,
Now, I will cut them off,
Like a infected limb,
I am numb,
I have been starved,
Mentally, and physically,
But no soul came to stitch my wound
To carry me to mercy,
So This isn't a goodbye from you,
This is from me,
My death wouldn't make a bird fly
Nor would it make the songs play
And it would not step into your brain,
You would not cry,
Life would be so much as it is now,
I get so far into these word games,
so I suppose I will end it here,
But hear me, I will bleed,
Until I die, and fade from your life.
I will not heal our grasp,

Saboten Con Line-Up and Stuff!Yeah! Stuff!Saboten Con Line-Up and Stuff!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So Saboten is in a week. Thankfully I'm not frantically trying to get stuff done because for the most part...it is done. Speaking of not trying to get stuff done--I'm in a really tough and demanding semester, so I won't be sewing very much. I'm taking a little break until December or otherwise stated. So we'll see what happens then.
But anyway, Saboten is coming up and I'm most definitely looking forward to it! I'm particularly excited for this year for a number of reasons. One: it's probably the best con in Arizona, two: it's in a new, fabulous location, three: we have fabulous panels selected, four: we have an awesome skit lined up for the masquerade, and five: pikminlink, the cosplayer I look up to the most is going to be a guest there.
Here's my line-up!
Saturday: Len Kagamine, Servant of Evil with ValdaValsha as Daughter of Evil Rin
ColossalCon 2013Yesterday was the day CupofSquirrel went to Colossal Con, and we had an excellent time. Though I am worn out, I'm still feeling enthusiastic about our con experience.ColossalCon 20139 months ago in Personal More Like This
Guess and I wore our Thor and Loki cosplays for the second time at a con (the first was Motor City Comic Con, where we had severe costume malfunctions). This time was a bit better-- it was nice to have test runs before Youmacon this year, and before we begin filming projects with Thor and Loki. We have kinks we still need to work out to make our costumes better, but that will come in time.
We will not, however, be wearing these to another summer convention. Ever. Again.
I have this problem where I don't take care of myself-- I don't do it intentionally, I just don't realize that I'm physically feeling a certain way, or emotionally feeling a certain way. I'm far better at reading other people's needs than my own, so I didn't even notice I was overheating until we went back inside. We had been running around taking cosplay

Speaking of which, I've been immersing myself in nostalgia for both work and free time. If you were a child of the 80's you might remember the Jim Henson series, The Storyteller. An absolutely incredible display of classy, incredible puppet horror and culture. Seriously, this show scared the bejeesus out of me when I was younger but I loved it and I'm so happ
A Couple NotesJust a few little notes on the latest MLP episode. Because I know you all care so very much.A Couple Notes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
- DERPY. DERPY DERPY DERPY. HER NAME IS CANON NOW, BITCHES. AND SHE HAS A DERPY VOICE. GLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE :iconsohappyplz:
- I like that a ton of Applejack's relatives from the first episode are at her celebration, but no Braeburn? I guess he couldn't get there in time. Which raises the question of how far apart these Equestria cities are.
- Ponies use outhouses? ......................................................................................................why.
- Oh ho ho, I see what you did there, writers. There was a character in the fandom frequently referred to as Cherry Jubilee, but that name was borked by Hasbro when they called her toy Cherry Berry. How does the writing staff respond? Give a new character the name Cherry Jubilee.
- I Love Lucy references. HOW DOES THIS SHOW KEEP GETTING MORE AW
Song Lyrics MemeStep 1: Put your iPod/MP3 player or iTunes on random.Song Lyrics Meme7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song. (I took out any instrumental songs, natch, as well as any song where the title is uttered in the first line, so it's not entirely the first 20 songs that came up.)
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from. Those guessing the songs should post in the comments or shoot me an e-mail.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly and post the title in bold after the stricken song when it is guessed.
Step 5: (for those guessing the songs) If you look up the lyrics on Google or any other search engine, that's called cheating, so don't do it!

Alloweth me to become quite sappy, dear deviants and beloved watchers, for I have to admit something I've been feeling about y'all. I escaped dA to be on Tumblr and I'll tell you - it's fun, it's addicting, it's just awesometastic - but I could not help but keep on checking back here. And you know when they say stuff like "They are not actual friends," or "Once ya leave, they'll leave too and go on to check out other things like you were never there"?
I believed that, I accepted it, it sounds more than realistic and I've seen a grand many cases in which an artist leaves this site/any site and everyone kinda vanishes on 'em. Makes sense.
But dudes. I come back on after a whole month and eight days to throw very simple sketches and whatever from Tumblr at you guys and then the biggest surprise hit me that you all are still there. Although I've been gone for such a while and have be
