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:

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.

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!1 year 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

Moving On It's funny-- a year ago on this day I wrote a journal entry called 'Feeling Like September'. I like to go back sometimes and see what things were happening in my life back when I wrote them. It brings up the same feelings I had back then; it's nostalgic. This time last year I was filming 'Death Note: Another Note', a video which has been banned in most countries due to music content. I have to try and have it unlocked, but I'm still feeling pissy about it so I'm going to wait a little while longer.Moving On1 year ago in Personal More Like This
September is definitely in the air. We had a strangely (and wonderfully) cool summer this year, something which I was very thankful for. I'm not ready for this summer to end, even though it didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. For me summer is not only an escape, it's also a time of creativity and productivity. Some personal life events overwhelmed me this summer, and I haven't done many things I wanted to do. I had a lot

New Years was amazing as well got to hang with my family, my friends, and my boyfriend. We all had a blast setting off fireworks and having a light saber fight in the park XD
Then Taiyou con came about and HOLY CRAP SO MUCH FUN!! I got to take a bunch of photos while hanging with friends! The amazing :iconAlmost-Focused: let me borrow his equipment as well for photoshoots so I am super excited to have some new shots with the girls!!
And now onto the next part of the year! I have no idea what cosplay I want to start first xD I just love so many!!! And if I am quiet again guys school just started again for me and I already have a ton to do xD So hopefully my responses won't be too bad!!
Taiyou ConTaiyou con is this weekend! Oz, SWP, and Valda will have an artist alley table! We will be selling a few 4x6 cosplay prints! More specifically, Oz will be selling keychains (Vocaloid, Pandora Hearts, etc...) and fanarts, SWP will be selling flower hairpins, and Valda will be selling "Rin" bows ((cotton) white, (satin) light/dark blue, purple, black etc...) Cheshire will be running around taking pictures. It will be a pretty relaxed con.Taiyou Con2 years ago in Personal More Like This
*Just a heads up for anyone planning to buy anything from us, we do not have a credit card reader and can only accept cash.
UPDATE: Whatever we do not sell at Taiyou, we will most likely sell online probably through Ebay

And we will be debuting these at Anime Expo 2013! We will also be having a meet-up there! Here's the info:
We're coming back to Anime Expo! And that means we're having another gathering! It will be Day 3 of Anime Expo and we will be wearing our secret cosplays.
We're holding it at the same place we did last year. It was the space between the pillars going into the West Hall. No official gathering map for AX 2013 has been posted yet, but we'll be where zone 5 is on the 2012 map: http://i1128.photobucket.com/albums/m487/amateurcameko/AX2012-cosplaygatheringlocations_zps2d200a83.jpg (We'll update this when the 2013 map comes out.)

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 20131 year 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

Nuances of an Annual Ritual
Which brings us to each year’s communal celebration of the passing of our lifetimes:
New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

Sunday: IA - VOCALOID
Monday: Rena Ryuguu - Higurashi (or Norway...or England... not really sure but most likely Rena)
Daughter of Evil is almost done! I just need to add some elastic, make the necklace, and add some designs to the bow! This is by far the hardest cosplay I've ever done and the most detailed...right next to the difficulty of making Piko Utatane's outfit.
The secret cosplay is almost done too! Just need to make a small accessory!
Have You Met Zee Captain?Have You Met Zee Captain?2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
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

Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYB2absMoOc
Well, since we now have double the amount of footage to edit for Mail Time, (This doesn't even count the cosplay vids & Q&As that I still need to post..)
We've somehow managed to come up with little segments for each person (and possibly, for each character when we cosplay) We'll attempt doing this every time we film something, that way you all can watch something (that is most likely going to be ridiculously stupid) before we post the actual videos. That way you guys aren't waiting for months for my ass to have enough free time to edit and post a video! Hoopla! 8D
On another note, I don't update my DA journals as much as I could, I mainly post updates on my Tumblr. So, if you have questions about anything, or are looking for more updates/random things that will probably never be seen on Deviantart/Youtube, then my Tumblr will be there for you.
