Pyro Cosplay Secrets RevealedAlright laddies and mentlegen! I have been asked this question plenty of times--"How did you make your Pyro cosplay!?" So I will disclose this "top secret" intelligence to all you aspiring pyromaniacs out there.Pyro Cosplay Secrets Revealed1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Starting off with the cosplay itself:
-Gasmask--Soviet GP-5 got it on Ebay for about 30$ (later I attached a tea canister lid on the side to make the side filter with some nifty stuff called Shoo Goo. and a little tone dial on the other side). Underneath the mask, I paint very dark circles around my eyes and wear a balaclava.
-Suit--Cotton Workman's Coveralls. again Ebay 30-40$ (Then I added the class decals on the arms). Underneath the suit I wear a black tank top and shorts. It is definately in your best interest to dress very lightly underneath the suit, for it gets extremely hot.
-Boots--any plain black boots will look fine (like rain boots or something)
-Sash-- belt with papier macheed and painted soda cans (i'm most l

Before anything, just allow me to tell just how much I have adored and cherished the love, kindness, support and friendship I have gained from all of you who cared to view what I'd drawn.
Doing these silly (And usually illogical/disturbing) comic-strips and images has literally been one of the highlights in my life, as cheesy and cliché as that may sound, I swear, it's absolutely true. Ever since way back when I started with my couple of watchers right up to this moment with over 19'000 watchers, breaking the 1'000'000 pageview milestone and having amassed over 10'000'000 hits, logging into this account and seeing many, many supportive remarks and friendly comments, watching the favourites rise steadfastly on each deviation, seeing others willing to try improve their own, or return, to drawing (Despite the fact that I still do not wish to be titled as a

I've been away because I've been sick. A good kind of sick, mind you. I have a bun in the oven and have been spending a lovely 3 months clutching the toilet bowl. Holy pizza balls! Pregnancy nausea is horrible! But let me tell ya, once I got over it I felt so awesome that the thought of climbing Mount Everest doesn't even phase me. Haha... so I'd like to think. XD Yep, surviving the first trimester is a real ego booster. I have new respect for all the mommas out there. R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
I'm starting things slow and have been flexing my arting muscles over on tumblr, so if you'd like to see what I'm up to, head on over there: http://roorurooster.tumblr.com. Work on the comics "Gravity" and "NTGW" will start up again, albeit at a slightly decelerated rate. Adjusting to new routines and all that.
And lastly, Happy 2014! I didn't get to post a wish in my journal. Better late than never!

Important News on the MLP ComicIt looks to be pretty official, according to our editor, that the MLP comic has been pushed back two weeks to Nov 28 for street release date.Important News on the MLP Comic1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Before anybody gets upset (like one jerk on Twitter did), keep in mind the scope of this production: This is not a fanmade comic as some seem to think it is: This is a fully licensed comic book from a major Comic publisher done in cooperation with Hasbro. It is also one of the most highly anticipated comics for the entire fall/winter schedule. As such, we'd rather do it well than do it fast.
The orders for this book have far exceeded what was first anticipated, so a little more padding in the schedule is going to help to ensure the product can meet the demand
I also want to remind everyone: I am NOT The distributor/publisher... I just draw it. You cannot purchase the book directly from me. Here's some ground I've covered a number of times, but I keep getting asked... so here we go:

Lolita or Pho-lita?
So on my first day of college I went in a OTT lolita dress. I was sitting in the cafeteria and a girl comes up to me (let's call her Lyn). She say's "Ohh you look so kawaii~~". It didn't really bother me, people using Japanese isn't that BAD in my books. She starts sitting with me and we talk. She asks why I signed up to study fashion, I tell her I love sewing. Then I ask her why she signed up. She told me she wanted to learn how to make "kawaii" cosplay. She then asks me where I got MY cosplay. "What cosplay?" I ask. She tells me the "kawaii" dress I'm wearing is.
I politely reply saying that it's not cosplay, it's my clothing. She's still not convinced and just dismisses that I said it's my clothes.
Then She starts calling me Satsuzui chan after I told her my name is Suzuki. I tell her that's n

Theories regarding Jim's fate (major spoilers)Please do not read this if you have not watched the episode yet. I have warned you. This post contains goddamn amount of spoilers for the Reichenbach Fall.Theories regarding Jim's fate (major spoilers)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I just wasted a good portion of my time writing this TL;DR because honestly, listing my opinions one by one and then brooding over the possibility of each is the only coping mechanism for what Mofftiss has done to my mind. I of course, really wish that Jim is alive. He is a brilliant character and Andrew Scott is a brilliant actor. It'll feel slightly different if season 3 doesn't include him in it ):
Apologies for grammar and sentence structure mistakes in advance. Because I'm just too lazy too check lol.
A deviant told me he/she believes Jim is not dead, and asks if he/she's the only one thinking this:
You're not! I'm desperately hoping that this is the case too! I mean, I don't think one is cleverer than another, and if Sherlock could come up with an elaborate escape plan in case he HAD to resort to 'killing' him
The Lonely PathFebruary 13, 2013/by techgnoticThe Lonely Path1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

Film as a word conjures up something special. A unique feeling. Almost a different texture than words like movie or video. When someone asks you to go see a movie on the weekend you think, “Oh cool, that’ll be fun,” but if someone asks you to go to a film festival the feeling you get is entirely different. It feels like an investment of your time, one for which you want to plan accordingly and enjoy thoroughly.
And this is exactly what we are bringing you with deviantART Film. An experience meant to be enjoyed from the moment you hit watch to the very end of the film be
FAQ: A Journal of Impossible ThingsI keep getting the same questions from both Doctor Who fans and those who have no idea what's going on, so I thought I'd write a journal entry about this project. It's a bit silly to write a separate FAQ section for this, but I really need a place to link back to whenever I'm asked something about this series of drawings.FAQ: A Journal of Impossible Things3 years ago in Personal More Like This
WHAT'S A JOURNAL OF IMPOSSIBLE THINGS?
It's a dream journal featured in the Doctor Who episodes Human Nature (3x08) and The Family of Blood (3x09). In this two-parter, the Doctor rewrote his biology and became human in order to hide from the Family of Blood. The Doctor's human persona John Smith kept a journal where he wrote down and drew things he saw in his dreams, which were actually memories of his adventures as the Doctor.
The original prop journal was created by artist Kellyanne Walker and the text was provided by Paul Cornell.
SO WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?
My aim is to draw my own version of the Journal. I intend to draw all

With this new Micronation Trend, I knew it was only a matter of time!
Prussia's risen and fallen so many times.
Nearly a year ago, I remember saying 'You know, with how many times Prussia's been destroyed and re-created years later, I feel like he's just biding his time to have another rebirth. He and Poland have a pheonix-like quality'
I know there are some enclaves in Russia that still claim to be Prussian, but starting a mini-nation... If he actually gets full nation-status from this again, it'd be amazing.
Someone should check out the WW2 dissolution of Prussia... check to see if there is any allowance of a re-made Prussia... I don't know if they banned that, when they dissolved that country.
My only worry is that it's called the 'Empire'
Although it's very characteristic of Prussia, the modern world really isn't welcoming to any new count
