An open letter to my American DeviantArt friendsOkay... time for me to dedicate a little Journal space to the US Presidential Campaign.An open letter to my American DeviantArt friends2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those wishing to vote Republican this year, voting specifically for Mitt Romney, I'd like to have your ear for a moment.
I'd like you to consider fully the mettle and temprament of Mitt before casting your vote. In the UK I'm a Conservative party supporter, but I acknowledge that they have had some very pub...lic mistakes. Likewise at the last election, I identified more with the Republican Party, and had wished Obama wouldn't win... I was hoping that there'd be a decent Republican contender this year so he wouldn't get re-elected.
However, I do not feel Mitt Romney is a decent candidate... and so, I'd like you to consider voting for Barack Obama instead (before going further, I want to stress this isn't a copy & paste post, I assure you these are my own words and thoughts).
Romney has made it very clear that gay guys like myself and my friends, and my friends who identify as lesbian are second-

I've been told by several different Rangers that they wish there was a way to do something for Vic despite being in areas where there are not many conventions. We have these awesome Projects that incorporate Art and Writing, this time we thought we'd do something a little different! A Ranger sparked this idea. ( :iconKeybladeAlchemist: )

Rocksteady's Third Batman Game RevealedRocksteady Games, the very same london studio that gave usRocksteady's Third Batman Game Revealed2 years ago in Personal More Like This
BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM and BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY, has recently announced
that they are Indeed working on a Third Batman Video Game Title..
Here is what has been revealed, so far.
1. "Arkham 3" will be a prequel to the last two games
(Meaning it takes place YEARS before 'Arkham Asylum')
2. the Primary 'Batman Storypoint' in the game
is to tell the First Meeting between Batman and The Joker.
3. The Justice League are suppose to play a part in the game.
meaning Batman may team up with Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.
4. It's going to be based on the "Silver Age" of DC Comics.
which probably means that Batman will be in a Grey-and-Blue batsuit
(though, i doubt this means Batman will go Adam West on us
so, TRY not to worry too much on where this game is headed..)
5. Mark Hamil WILL NOT be returning as Joker's voice actor

I am so thankful to Gold Coast Film Festival for inviting us this year. It was an incredible expereince, and one that was really unlike any other con or event we've ever been to. I think what really hit me was being in a van with the other Film Festival guests (Lucas Till (Havoc from X-Men: First Class), Natalia Tena (Tonks from Harry Potter), Vic Mignogna and other actors while driving to Supanova's Dreamworld After Dark. I thought "here are some famous people, and we're included in their group... this is NUTS!". We also had a booth that we were stationed at for Supanova and I didn't notice until one of the staff at the booth told us that

Galadriel (LOTR / Mirror dress)
My classic Batgirl suit and my Mera suit are finished so far. (except for a few little changes on Mera's sleeves). Don't worry, the yellow pouch will be exchanged with a red one (The yellow one is for my black suit). I just wanted to see how it looks complete. For Batgirl the only thing I have to do now is the cape. I am really looking forward to wear the whole costume!
I also finished Dove's base suit. I'll work on the accessoires in the following days and hope to finish it quickly. <3 I love Babs, Dawn and Mera sooooo much! I'm so inspired and motivated at the moment. Great start into 2013!

Before we get into the thick of things, we didn’t have a photo of our huge plasma screens hanging from the convention ceiling to share in our Day 1 recap, so we vowed to get that to you today! The 11 foot wide screens stream amazing works of art from Artists' Alley participants to the whole convention floor!
In Comic-Cons past, the foot traffic In Artists’ Alley got busier and busier as the week progressed, and this year is no exception. There’s something magical about speaking one-on-one with a deviant, learning their experiences, hearing how they started as an artist, and how far they’ve come. It’s an emotional connection to make with someone who was practically a stranger a few moments ago -- and then you realize you’re not really strangers when you

Comic-Con How-To: How to Better Understand the Sociology Behind Cosplay
Thursday, 12:00 - 1:00 PM, Room 2 Upper Level
Cosplay is a loved hobby by many, but what is it about cosplay that attracts us? What is cosplay culture like? What is the proper etiquette as it relates to photographing cosplayers and socializing with convention attendees? Have all your questions about cosplay answered by veteran costume designer and cosplayer Yaya Han (yayacosplay).
For the past 11 years, yayacosplay has been creating full costumes and fashion pieces in the United States, and what began as a passionate hobby has evolved into a loving craft and career. Check out her work and make room for this informative panel!

How ya'll been? So recently as you know I've been on a bit of a health kick. Yeah... I slightly broke it (for a month omg) XD But what has my health kick got to do with the topic of this journal? WELL! I was thinking about it today and I've seen so many comments on cosplayer's photos over the years that make me quite upset to see. There are comments like "you're fat", "you're boobs are too small" or "you're ugly". Or even the opposite of "you're too thin", "you're boobs are too big and saggy" or "your face doesn't suit this character". So as you can tell it'll be rather ranty so if you don't wanna read that's ok XD
When I first started cosplaying I got this a couple of times and yes, it hurts. It upsets me to see that people go out of their way to make someone feel bad for all the hard work they've put into a costume. So what image does everyone expect to see when cosplayers' cosplay? They expect them to look exactly like this character they're cosplaying, right? Well
Trival cosplay entry: Skin tone + inspirationI seem to be making a lot of these entries, haha. It's okay. I love the insight I've been getting from a lot of people, watchers and non.Trival cosplay entry: Skin tone + inspiration2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Within the past couple of years but mainly recently, some people and friends, not just on dA, but on FB have been telling me a couple of things.
1. That I'm an inspiration to them.
2. That despite my body, I cosplay who and what I want and am good at it.
3. I'm not afraid of what people may say or think when it comes to "dark skinned" cosplayers.
4. That I am some sort of "hope" for dark skinned cosplayers.
I, personally, would like to talk about these things.
First off, if you find me as someone to look up to or an inspiration... well, no one really ASKS for those types of things, celebrities just become figures to look up to although that's not their intention. It's not mine, but if you see me as such, first off I want to say is "thank you". Coming into cosplay, I never expected people would say such things to me. I never saw myself as a beacon of

We're over 80,000!?!? Aki Con and UpdatesI had noticed that our subscriber count on the FDP Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/user/fightingdreamerspro?feature=guide) account was getting close to hitting 80,000 last week but I figured that we had until after N2U before that happened. Yesterday I logged into the FDP Youtube account and realized (after a while because I'm always the last horse to cross the finish line XD) that we had hit 80,000!!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!

A warning to the people
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.

(Most of these questions are paraphrased, or a mix of two different questions.)
1. You charge way too much for commissions (between $1000-$3000 for 11x17). How do you justify that?
I agree it's a lot of money. When I first started pricing commissions so high, it was for 2 reasons: I only had time for a handful a year, and having a commission list stressed me out. I priced them high so less people would ask. Commissions are nice, but I see it as a short term money game, whereas working on creator-owned properties is more lucrative over time when you think about prints, t shirts, licensing, etc.
The work I put into a 1k commission is the same I'd put into a Batman cover. And I sell B
