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'm not a very celebratory kinda guy but I do appreciate everything! All I did was go to Manhattan to get a new phone and being in the city was all I needed to make my day. I saw the Chrysler Building when I was by Bryant Park so that was nice.Thanks for the birthday wishes!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Anyway, thank you to all of our new watchers and thanks for the support!
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!3 years 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
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 20133 years 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

Sep 19, 2012 by techgnotic
The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But

Finished filming 'LA:BB'Today was the last day for filming 'The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases'. It was quite a good run, and we'll miss filming. But it will be very exciting to begin editing!Finished filming 'LA:BB'3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The last scene in the film had been finished a while back, since we filmed completely out of order due to content and difficulty. Today we got to have our wonderful makeup artist completely deform one of us (she's really an amazing makeup artist). Though the process took a long time, we still somehow managed to finish all filming, make a bonfire, and have a cake and marshmallows as a celebration.
We were filming earlier at :iconembers0ashes: apartment, and her boyfriend 'Wyaun' said something that really interested me (it was an accidental suggestion, really) which ended up turning into an extended scene at the end of the credits! It's a very twisted sort of end for the credits, which will only really hit home with those who are very familiar with Naomi Misora and 'Death Note'. The idea hit me suddenly, and I began tearing
