Reminder: CloTi Summer ContestATTENTION SOLDIERS!!!Reminder: CloTi Summer Contest1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hey there Soldiers! ;3 Just a quick reminder of our new summer contest
I hope you have fun and remember, if you have any questions just let us know ;D
THEME: AU CloTi
The theme is to make our OTP into an AU fanart/fanfiction.
The idea of this contest is to also enjoy CLOTI with a different side story, which means that the characters will remain loyal to the original franchise, so they won't feel OOC. You can base your stories/fanarts with characters from Disney couples, Final Fantasy, other OTP's, TV series, Anime, etc.
For example: If you do a fanart or fanfiction of Romeo and Juliet, you have to adapt the design of the FFVII characters to the story. In this case, Juliet will be called Tifa and Romeo will be called Cloud. And so on. But the story will remain the same.
Here are so
Girl Scouts of AmericaThe Girl Scouts of America are marvellously allowing transgender girls (male-to-female) to join their ranks However, this group and their associates have decided that hate and discrimination are better ideologies for the Girl Scouts.Girl Scouts of America3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Children are innocent. Don't subject them to your transphobia or hatred. Let the adults shoulder that if you really have to throw your faeces at someone.
All I can think of is how hurt these poor little girl scouts must be. They already deal with enough, being born in the wrong body. Now you're telling them that they're bad people for something that they can't help? I'll tell you what. I wouldn't feel safe sending my daughter into a girl scout troop with a bunch of hateful Bible thumpers. I'd much rather send my daughter in with a troop that offers positive messages of un-conditional love and acceptance for mankind.
Keep in mind that the same group is trying to boycott the Girl Scouts

I feel like it's a good day for complaining.
So, complain about anything you don't like.
It can be life problems, general state of mind, a person, something deviantART related... anything you want.
Just let it all out.
I might try to help with an advice.
Plus, you can win 200 points.
In order to participate you only have to:
a) this journal
b) and complain about something that gets on your nerves.
I will use random.org to pick one lucky/grumpy winner
I hope you like this idea, and have fun complaining
My complaint (dA related):
I hate it when people keep posting body pics to get attention from perverts/stalkers.
Especially, if they repost 42354235 times to get more favorites on certain photos. Gets on my nerves.

Before Cosplay Makeup: Basic Skincare!Before I write about cosplay makeup, I figured I should discuss some skincare basics. I feel it's important to know how to take care of your skin before you start putting gunk on it! This is really very basic so I think those of you with your own regimens already might be bored by it! But here it goes!Before Cosplay Makeup: Basic Skincare!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not an awesome guru wizard thing, but I'll just share some general concepts and products that work for me. It's different for everybody, but I hope this will be helpful! For your sreference, my skin type is combination: normal to dry with an oily nose. Hahah! Not my T-zone, just my nose!
Recently, my male friends had gotten very interested in makeup for cosplay and asked me for tips on how to go about it. (I think this was fueled by Kaname's visit to our country for Cosplay Mania '12, and they saw how beautiful he looks. ) I decided to ask them about their skincare regimen to figure out what products might work for their skin type.

How to get more views on your LiteratureHow to get more views on your LiteratureHow to get more views on your Literature1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This article is an exploration of a common question on DeviantART in the Literature community; "How do I get more views?" If you read all of this you win a pony.
Lately there has been a lot of discussion around the site about ways to expand the literature community and the visibility of literature on the site. It has been noted that a lot of people believe that site changes by the DeviantART team will help them get more attention for their work. It has also been noted in the past that when new features are instigated (such as more html, better thumbnails and stash) that people often interpret whether or not they have a direct positive effect on their own views as a way of telling if the new feature is worthwhile or not.
It has been suggested that the community and individuals therein should themselves take more responsibility for creating opportunities and maximising poten

I Hate My Overactive Imagination Always... + More!So, I had a dream this morning (actually, it was two dreams, but I don't remember the first one). I rarely dream, so when I do, it's always something special. My mind has a way of making incredibly awesome dreams by itself, and although this dream wasn't as awesome as some of my previous ones, I woke up to it thinking, "I can turn this into an awesome story!" So I went to the shower and I did. I now have a fully planned project that I might never get to... :icononionfailplz:I Hate My Overactive Imagination Always... + More!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes, I think about selling my ideas, but I'm the if-you-want-things-done-right-do-it-yourself type of person, and if I see someone use my ideas and it doesn't live up to my expectations, I'll probably go on a rant with them, telling them to make it better (maybe even take it off their hands... :I), so either way, it's a major pain for me.
I was always able to shake off these ideas by telling someone, though. I used to have my brother for that, but since he lives 2 days away and never picks up the phone... wel
Sailor Moon: New Anime in 2013 (now w/video)This is not a rumor!Sailor Moon: New Anime in 2013 (now w/video)2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It was officially announced that there will be a BRAND NEW Sailormoon Anime in Summer 2013! The original Japanese VAs for Moon and Tuxy seem to be reprising their roles (based on the conversation in the event). We don't have much more detail, a letter from Naoko said she hopes we like the new series and she's happy to be making it. She said she's overwhelmed at the support the series still has and it makes her happy. She didn't think she could do something new but now she's happy she can bring them back!
They said the audience is intended to be the original fans of the show. It will be like a "powered up" of the original story, aimed at the good girls (and boys!) who grew up with the show. TOEI is doing it.
There was something in the announcement about it being released worldwide but we don't know the details. We do not know what this means as far as a possible English dub/sub. We don't yet know when/how this will reach a US market.

With reference to the efforts of :iconSave-The-Cheetah: and :iconthe-cheetah-archive: (Who I believe have sparked this idea) The Big Cats Club would love to host a contest in support.
Help save the beautiful cheetah with your art! In order to raise awareness about the gradual extinction of a species, we want to really make a big statement. This is where you come in! On December 4 post an artwork of a cheetah onto deviantArt. What we hope this will do is flood the deviantArt front pages of images and artworks of this cat. Causing people to wonder why the cheetah has become so popular, and thus find out about their fight for survival as a species.
In our attempt to raise awareness about this challenge The Big Cats Club will host a contest to encourage more people to post an image of a cheetah on December 4.
For more information on the challenge itself, please read http://bcbdrums.deviantart.com/journal/The-International-Ch
