This part is specific to those of you who use traditional materials to make your artwork. The supplies we use today are much MUCH safer than those the old master's used, but there are still chemicals and materials you need to be aware of for your own health and well being (as well as those around you).

Petition: Release The Black Cauldron Uncut on BluMany people know that The Black Cauldron is one of Disney's most obscure animated films to date. What some may not know was that the movie had scenes too gruesome to be in the movie that they had to be cut to avoid letting the movie get slapped with a PG-13 or R rating. some scenes were seamlessly removed, but the removal of some scenes, namely during the Cauldron-Born sequence (the film's climax), were very noticeable. It is also evident because of a jump cut during said sequence due to the music.Petition: Release The Black Cauldron Uncut on Blu3 months ago in Personal More Like This
The movie would have been released uncut on VHS in the late 80s. However, that had not happened due to the success of Disney's The Little Mermaid.
I am making this petition as a way to ask the Walt Disney Company that if they plan to release The Black Cauldron on Blu-ray Disc any time soon, don't miss on this opportunity to release the movie with the cut scenes restored back into the film. After all, if Warner Brothers can release Little Shop of Horrors on Blu-ray with both the t

If you ask me: "Why did you cosplay Hercules, why espesually Megara? ! ". I can tell you that it is the most my favourite cartoon of childhood, and Meg is the most favourite character. Know, I don't love Disney's princesses, but I simply adore Meg! Because she is differs from ordinary princesses. Usually they are are defenseless, weak, too lovely and sugary. But Meg is very strong and impudent person. I love her for these qualities. It seems to me that she is the improbable girl! In the childhood I also couldn't present that sometime I will become her embodiment!I really happy!

Supergirl - Best of Cosplay CollectionSupergirl - Best of Cosplay Collection1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There have been many versions of Supergirl, but the one constant is youth and optimism. Unlike her cousin Superman who grows up with his super abilities, Kara Zor-El does not get her abilities until she's on earth. So she remembers what it's like to just be an ordinary person. She's often drawn with a huge grin. If I suddenly had superpowers, I'm sure I would too.
