INDIEGOGO ENDED!! Phase one is over!EDIT: 11/18/2014INDIEGOGO ENDED!! Phase one is over!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, as I said of tumblr, I want to thank everyone for their support! We collected almost 10000 through Indiegogo donation! I know it's far from what the goal is but don't worry! We are planing phase two of the campaign! We will not stop just because we didn't reach our goal out of a first try! We will fight until we finally get there!
To everyone who donated and shared the campaign: Thank you! Your support is what helped us get even this far, we really couldn't have done without you! ;u; As I said above, we will continue to fight until our goal is reached so we aren't stopping just yet!
I will update everyone once phase two starts and I will most likely reopen Special Order (and add new ideas for it). If I still owe you those, don't worry! I quite busy with the School Festival (which was a total success! The

A Real Motivational MLK SpeechToday marks the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech. I'm not sure which is more depressing about this occasion: that race hustlers like Al Sharpton have hijacked his legacy to push their own political agenda, or that this anniversary falls around the same time our first black president is contemplating war (whereas MLK was vehemently anti-war).A Real Motivational MLK Speech1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Many have speculated what King would think if he were alive today. I think he would be deeply grieved by current events, especially within the African-American community, and he would scoldingly condemn them.

Reguarding The New DmC: We'll be okay.So... I've been downloading Devil May Cry OSTs And while listening to "I'll be your home" I realized something- About my Rants and Raves towards the new DmC:Reguarding The New DmC: We'll be okay.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's Nothing we can do. Nothing
But thats okay- Because they can't simply come in and take away the Dante, the emotions, the love, the hate, the frustration of being stuck on Vergils last battle and finally screaming "TAKE THAT YOU WHORE!!!!" at the screen at the end of the game!!!! No. They can't.. they can't take what they've already given us.
This new game is much like a cold: All we have to do is lay back, relax and it'll go away.
I can't wait for it to come out- perhaps if not many people enjoy it they may realize how many are outraged.
I complain not. Its a good thing I'm not a Devil...
Because I'm bawling. Crying. Sobbing. All and any derivitives for the tears inside me. To be a nerd and quote the song I'm sobbing to: "The tears inside me calm me down"
Thinking about that reminds me of DMC3's last few cutscenes...

So You Think You're a Photographer, Eh?[I should point out that this is in response to some GWC (Guy With Camera) spouting off about his 'services' available to any woman not wise enough to steer clear on Model Mayhem's Shout Board earlier this evening. It's probably also related to the recent influx of bathroom shots that end up on the dA front page.]So You Think You're a Photographer, Eh?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm gonna keep this brief.
You convinced some dumb chick to get nekkid for you and your camera. Now you think you're a photographer and you're creating art. Or, and this is a scenario that just makes me sad, you're a moderately attractive young lady that gets nekkid and takes a picture of yourself with your phone, in the bathroom mirror. You've got a gazillion followers here on deviantArt or Model Mayhem and think you're an artist. Well, it's a little more complicated than that.
Simply because people fave you doesn't make you an artist any more than liking sugar makes you an ANT. Anyone can take pictures of a naked body. ANYONE. Simply having people look at those pictures doe

In fact, anything you make that you do not sell the rights to is copyrighted to you for a whopping 70 years after you kick the bucket.

Hizaki Dress: How was made.I bet a lot of people want to know how I made my Hizaki cosplay, so here's some progress photosHizaki Dress: How was made.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I started off with the bodice. My fabric of choice for this: italian velvet (it's a upholstery fabric).
Here's the front.
And the back.
Before make and attach the sleeves, I started to make the skirt. My fabric of choice: shantung jacquard.
For the frills I used the same italian velvet.
Make some straps first.
Make the frills by hand
Testing the fit between the frills to attach them later.
Such a heavy skirt needs a crinoline to support all that weight, so I made one.
Oh my! It can stand on its own!
Time to make and attach the sleeves.
If you want to work with heavy fabrics as the velvet I used, you'll need strong and sharp scissors x_x

PE: Guidelines to Starting your Own Craft BusinessGuidelines to Starting your Own Crafting BusinessPE: Guidelines to Starting your Own Craft Business2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So you make cute crafts, and probably someone offered you money for them. Maybe you need the money, and if you're like me, you need it to buy more crafting supplies. Whatever the reason, starting your own crafty business is a decisions that you should take seriously... it's not as easy as opening an Etsy account and setting some random prices for your work. There is a lot of things to consider to keep the business going, your money safe, your name clean, and your costumers happy.
By no means this is an absolute guide, merely a few guidelines of things I've found important or questions I get asked often by people interested in opening their own business. Most of this tips are intended for online selling, but they should apply for other ways of selling too. I will probably do more detailed guides in the future, as I learn more myself.

A guide to selling your art3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Recently, I've been having a fantastic time designing and sculpting easy to make (sometimes) miniatures that people love to wear as jewellery. What I found though, was that there was no help, or even advice for people who didn't want to start a whole shop, and simply wanted to have their product out there.
Here in Brisbane, Australia, it can be a little easier getting out there, through regular market stalls (which can be quite cheap) at varying markets. However, as I understand that there are not always markets around places that are not major cities, lets look into other avenues
Once I began the market stalls, I looked up every little boutique, indie and gift store I could find. Near you, two suburbs/towns away from you, it doesn'

For f**k’s sake. Terrorists are not under your bed. They are not hiding around every corner. They are not in the seat next to you. The few that are out there only win if you start to think they might be.
In 2005, a gaggle of weak-minded twits blew themselves up on the London Underground. I and 1.2 BILLION other passengers per year still use it. Could another attack happen? Of course. But so could fire, flood, collapse or accident. You could get hit by a bus as you exit the station! There are a thousand-and-one terrible things that could happen to you today and, I assure you, unless you live in some third world sh*thole, the odds of a random yahoo causing you physical harm for political or religious reason is one of the least likely to occur.

It's the only plausible explanation as to why so many Americans are oblivious to blatant propaganda such as this:Fourth-grade students in Illinois are learning that "government is like a nation's family" because it sets rules and takes care of needs such as health care and education.
So says a worksheet for social studies homework that was distributed to students at East Prairie School in Skokie, Ill, complete with a drawing of Uncle Same cradling a baby that represents the citizens.
Students are then prompted to answer 10 questions comparing government and families, including how their family provides for their health care needs and how the government doe

Tip for Today: When to give up?Never give up just because you don't think you're good enough. We've all had our doubts in life. Successful people do not give up easily. We must prepare and prepare again, try your very hardest and then about 50% more that you didn't know you had consistently, then keep going twice as long as you ever thought you would or could.

Avoid UbisoftA while back, just after I had completed whichever iteration of Assassin’s Creed involved the pirate guy, I said that Watchdogs was probably going to be a crap game. A number of people said I was wrong to badmouth a game without playing it, but my argument was that you could gauge the quality of an upcoming title by the studio/publisher’s previous output. With that in mind, it’s fairly obvious that Ubisoft’s preferred method is to dazzle the weaker minded with pretty, pretty graphics in order to sell as many copies as possible before someone points out that the game actually plays like a dog (which – what ho - is exactly what Watchdogs did).Avoid Ubisoft1 month ago in Personal More Like This
