THE ZEKI MASQUERADE CHALLENGE
It is a great pleasure to announce Nostalgia’s second official contest: The Zeki Masquerade Challenge!
Masked at the Royal Masquerade Ball, the White Knight and his Princess are in another world doing things that are for the deviants to unveil...
Artists are required to choose one of the two given scenarios:
♘ Scenario #1:
The hall is dark, the lighting low; soft music colors the atmosphere in a dream-like fantasy; slow, enticing, romantic. Hidden beneath an elegant, mysterious mask, the princess’ eyes meet that of the knight. Hearts beat, sparks fly; what would this meeting lead to..?
♘ Scenario #2:
The Royal Masquerade Ball is as uncomfortable and disconcerting as the princess had anticipated. Wanting to take a short break, Yuuki leaves the hall to wander other places of the mansion, where she finds..?
The artists’ job is to finish th

:iconsakuraflowerplz1:What does Kuchiki Byakuya do when he's back home after work?:iconsakuraflowerplz1:
I think that I am not the one who is curious about what happens after every worktime in Byakuya's life. When he returns back home, he escapes from the nosy eyes of other Shinigami and he doesn't have to be so cold-tempered, calm and stoic. And that's exactly where you guys should enter the stage and allow your imagination to work! Feel free to let your ideas flow into a drawing but beware of some short rules that you shall be obligated to abide, if you want to participate in this contest.
Illustrations about Byakuya with other people also allowed
No sexual motives allowed
This time only drawings v.v ( no fanfiction )
Digital or traditional artworks (pencils, watercolour, copics etc.,) allowed.

SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?Every single cosplayer in the world has one painful problem that we can all relate to: we're always broke. Always.SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fabric, thread, machines, paints, wood, tools, thermoplastics, LEDs, mould castings, brushes, dyes, wigs, make-up, contacts, boots, prosthetics, convention tickets, travel expenses, luggage, skin care, gym... the list goes on and on. Every single cent we earn, we constantly throw it all back into making our beloved costumes and feeling good for a few hours while stressing for months prior-hand. Non-cosplayers may not get it, but we do. For us, it's not a sacrifice. The chance to hone our creative spirit and create something from nothing is a rewarding life experience. Some think that the cost of an outfit is more valuable compared to medication and psychological sessions.
But like it not, we've all gotta come to a conclusion that the hobby must come to an end for us one day, and to have some money saved up for your next step in life is a greater advantage than having nothi
Common Misconceptions: Traditional ArtFirst of all, hello! It's been almost a year since I contributed a blog post to this lovely group so I want to say hi I'm back folks! I have a lot of artsy things to share with you all that I've learned (and am still learning) so hang on tight! While I was thinking what to write as my first topic, I decided to kind of go back to the beginning as far as our thinking as artists goes in the creation process. I've come up with a short series called "Common Misconceptions" just to debunk some myths and misguided trends that are so often part of what we experience as we grow. This first "Common Misconceptions" topic will focus on traditional art.Common Misconceptions: Traditional Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This

COSPLAY =/= CONSENT, HOWEVER.....I think all cosplayers have been brought to the attention of the latest fad sweeping every convention, forum, blog, vlog, and practically everywhere else... the whole "cosplay =/= consent" thing.COSPLAY =/= CONSENT, HOWEVER.....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Do I support this ideal? Absolutely. Everyone who knows me knows I do, considering I own a pair of boobs and all that comes with being a woman.
However, this trend had caught the attention of feminazi's [feminist nazi's, aka. flailing vaginas] who are taking matters far and beyond and making rules of their own, even attacking individuals who say they've gone too far. Now this, I don't stand for.
But here's what I stand for...
I'm a cosplayer. I choose to cosplay.
I choose which cosplays I'd like to make.
Nobody forced it onto me. It's my decision.
My decision to cosplay a certain character inevitably affects how people look at me, whether they adore my character, barely look at me, or stare at all my flesh.
As said above, I chose to wear that costume. My choice.
Everyone is equal at convention

My world goes mad.I wake up to the jingle of Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc. emitting from my phone. I look at it and see my boss telling me I don't have to work today. I sigh and fall into a deep hole suddenly appearing within the mattress of my bed and I tuck my blanket over myself. At this rate I won't get enough money this month to last me through December and buying Christmas presents have to be taken of my list.My world goes mad.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I grumble and reach out towards my phone once more, turning on the XFM Breakfast show with Danny Wallace. They're talking about dreams. I then decide that I really need to get up, and so I do... After another 15 minutes since I realize; I'm not working today.
Eventually, I'm up and I carry my computer into the living room and turn on the DVD. I didn't finish the Lost episode yesterday so I might as well look at it now before I start thinking to much about my situation. Dad says I think to much.

Artist's toolbox: Watercolor EquipmentArtist's toolbox: Watercolor Equipment1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
✿ Watercolor Equipment
Watercolor is a painting technique in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble binder. Usually, the result is transparent and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a relatively pure form with a few fillers obscuring the pigment color. This medium was never taken as seriously as "high art" techniques such as oil painting and was rather seen as pale and miniaturist, but it's gradually reclaiming it's place as a vehicle for the most beautiful and unexpected artistic expression. Watercolor can be vibrant and large, very vital, spontaneous and leaning a little on luck. All these aspects make watercolor painting a medium with great potential for new discoveries.

So today at workI work in a warehouse, for those of you who don't know, and I do what is called "picking" I take items and put them into totes and onto a conveyor belt that goes to a truck that takes those totes to a store where they are sold. ANYWAYS. So while picking today I noticed a strange name on one of the items I was picking, upon closer inspection I burst out laughing because this was just the worst way they could have abbreviated a label, the item was called "Dickson's Facial Cream" but they had abbreviated it to "DK FACIAL CRM" which I misread as "DICK FACIAL CREAM".So today at work9 months ago in Personal More Like This
It was so hilarious I ran down the isle to my co-worker Morgan and spazzed out at her about it and she thought it was hilarious and I took the label and stuck it to my shirt and walked around with it all night. I was DICK FACIAL CREAM up until lunch when my other co-worker Halden told me he had one better, where he worked there was an item that was abbreviated to "BUTT PASTE" and we're still not sure what that is.

"You can't just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood.
What mood is that?
You are well-aware of the importance of this project, in fact you can't wait to get to it! Too bad you promised your friends to go for a drink, and then there's that movie. Also, your productivity is at its strongest at Midnight, first Tuesday after the Full Moon, starting earlier would be a waste of time. Make sure you are well-rested! After all, is there a better way to prepare yourself for a productive tomorrow than an enjoyable today?
Your diagnosis: Procrastination positive.
