Mainly it would result in 100% more videos for you guys, as well as being able to branch out and really dedicate time in production and editing.
This is something I've been talking about with Kelly for a while now, and I have recently (after some serious talk) gained my mothers support in the venture.
However, I can't do it for free. This is where you guys come in.
1) In the last few months of 2012, I plan to push for new designs in the Parlé store. So if you'd like to support us; then please buy a t-shirt or two when they are ready to go!

2) Tell your friends about our shows, make your own videos talking about the shows. Do journals and tumblr blogs; anything to get the Parlé name out there and appealing to more people. The more people we get; the more likely this will happen.

Rainbow Dash Wig Written WalkthroughSomebody requested a text tutorial, and I figured I would post a journal, that way the majority of the questions I got will be covered.Rainbow Dash Wig Written Walkthrough4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Things you will need:
-A white kanekalon wig, length of your choice
-A wig head or something similar that can hold your wig
-A box or wig clamp that can keep your wig off the ground and up higher (optional)
-Hair ties and clips
-Scissors or an exacto knife
-One pack of rainbow sharpies
-Pledge floor wax
-Spray bottle (4-8 oz)
-White garbage bags
-A hair dryer with cool setting
-An old, plastic hairbrush (I used a cheap, dollar tree one)
-A well ventilated area (Required!)
1.) Gather materials. Slip your wig onto the wig head and pin down with 4-5 pins. Used colored ones so you can see them better! I recommend two in the front hairline, two in the back, and one at the very top. You also need to prepare your area. I taped a wig head down to a tall box, and placed the bo

One of the questions I get a lot are "who do you buy ____ from?"
I always assumed that all sites were pretty equal,
but I recently have been, and still am, dealing with a dispute form a contact website,
they have broken their our rules but still refusing to refund the purchase,
and because of the way they worded the product paypal is refusing to step up.
I'm pretty burned,
and I know others have been screwed over,
or have had major problems from dealing with people online.
As well as people who have had amazing experiences.

Harry Potter cosplay tomfoolery at Fantasy QuestFantasy Quest 2011Harry Potter cosplay tomfoolery at Fantasy Quest4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many, many months ago last July (that's how late this entry is) a cosplay event was held in the most beautiful location that the local cosplay community has ever seen. Fernbrook Gardens the wedding & events destination which you might recognize from our Kuroshitsuji http://behindinfinity.deviantart.com/gallery/29228688 and Harry Potter cosplay photoshoots http://behindinfinity.deviantart.com/gallery/31767781
It was around that time that the world was getting ready for the final Harry Potter movie, so my friends and I decided that perhaps it was about time to push through with our plans to cosplay Harry Potter characters. Parts of Fernbrook Gardens also looked like Hogwarts so we figured it would be appropriate.
Photos are from my friends, some from albums I was tagged in on Facebook, and some from my own camera.
Here I am with most of my friends that I went to the event with, along with Arnel akagii2004 whom we met that day as he was

"Lala, can you give me some cosplay advice? I am going to cosplay so-&-so.." (Etc. etc.,)

Thus... I am going to lay it all out right here on this journal.

Due to an overwhelming positive response I am opening up wig commissions starting in June! At this point in time I am ready to start taking commissions to order bases for in order for those bases to be here in June so I can start work on them right away

To ensure that I can get you the best product possible, I am hoping that people commissioning me will use the following form so that I can know all of your stipulations up front

Man, what did I doSo I uploaded this as a curiosity and sudden realizationMan, what did I do4 years ago in Personal More Like This
And my god, when I saw this afternoon the response, like 400+ comments? A hot debate I created about beauty, being natural or not. I kinda feel like a troll
But on to the point,
Please, I just want to say before anyone jumps into conclusions, I am neutral on the matter.
I don't care if wearing make-up is good or bad, or makes you look better or worse.
I'm just stating the obvious; people can be transformed by make-up.
My purpose of this is to actually show make-up is another form of ART, and to me, being the most important tool in my work, makes wonders.
Sometimes being natural is boring (NOT ugly I say), and my goal is to create characters that can't exist but are born and molded from my head to you by makeup. And they are not always beautiful, not to me. But I don't care.
I don't know if any of you get it, what I'm trying to say, or if it makes any sense.
But whatever, thought I had to say it. :

♣ Learning from others artists - no matter who is it, from beginner to master, we can always learn something from them.
♣ Learning from audience - carefully consider comments from other people, their opinions are valuable.

♣ Always be a beginner - there are many things beyond than we have ever realized. Let's open our mind and learn new stuff.
♣ Don't waste your time on choosing tools - choose the appropriate materials - what we like the most is the perfect one.
♣ Only taking a break but don't give up - there are numerous obstacles that await for us in this path - confront and fight them!
