Joining the Ranks of the Woefully UnemployedToday I got the news that the game dev studio that both I and my husband work for is closing. His last day is the 15th and they are keeping me on until the end of the month to help with the odds and ends of everything. We're both getting an alright severance package and his vacation was maxed out so we'll be getting that, too. Financially, we'll be okay. We have savings and we both have marketable skills that we can use to make money if we need to (art for me, web dev for him). This is certainly not what I would call convenient, but I am seeing it as an opportunity for both of us. I'm far too lazy to quit my job to try something new. But in this case, the choice wasn't mine and I'm thrust into a new world of possibilities.Joining the Ranks of the Woefully Unemployed1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What do I want to do? Well, I can do whatever I want. My husband and I have both decided that we do want to take some time off. He is a very talented artist and I have no doubt t

First of all, let me warn you that by the end of this journal entry, you may find yourself sick of my face. (If you aren't already.) I'll be using mostly myself as an example for the things I'm going to discuss, because I'm the only person I can poke fun at without restrictions.
I get asked a lot of questions about these cosplay photos that most of you have come to know me for. Sometimes it's about the techniques we use, requests for tips and advice for other people who want to do something similar. Other times, the comments come from people who aren't familiar with cosplay, but are curious about it and are interested to know more. So I thought of making this li
Sherlock Holmes: The Ever Evolving IconWhat is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?Sherlock Holmes: The Ever Evolving Icon2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

CosPod is the podcast about all things cosplay. We cover everything from fantasy to sci-fi, from steampunk to mascots, from anime to SCA, and everything in between. Our podcast discusses the materials, techniques, people and places of cosplay. We interview cosplayers, host a gallery of costumes and techniques, and roundtable discussions of the meaning behind becoming your favorite characters; just to name a few aspects of the show.
We run the podcast for 30 minutes, bi-weekly through:

"Goodbye John." His voice cracked.
Then he jumped.
And was gone.
Days have passed since then. Article after article came out all about two things. One, Sherlock Holmes is a fraud. Two, Sherlock Holmes is dead.
Faith has been lost in the majority of London, but some still remains in the hearts of his friends, his co-workers, and yes, even his enemies. But how long they can believe has yet to be questioned...And also to be questioned, the fate of London without the great detective....

to everyone who is still reading this,
if you want to help making things better, please go here http://dan14lev.deviantart.com/journal/Site-Updates-Week-2-of-2012-280120333 and suggest them to create a third front page option so that we'd have Newest, Exposure (current FP) and Popular (the old FP ) :'D
if we suggest it in many, they might listen to us!
I already did and others did the same!
okay, it's time somebody does something about this.
So I hope I'm not the only one who's being REALLY annoyed by this new front page system or glitch that's been there for almost a month now, and DA did absolutely nothing to fix or let us know they're fixing it or inform us in case it's a new system?!
for me it's not okay, before the pictures getting there at least were popular, they were there because they were chosen by people, because we liked them, because for the most part they were good and worth looking at!
how many of the good artists on DA did you see up there lately, not
