One is a camera bag for you photography enthusiasts, and the other is a Japanese schoolbag-inspired backpack for charity.Two bags worth checking out!

I've got another long-overdue cosplay-related journal entry coming up in a bit!
dA PRO Camera Bag
This is a rather late review, but better late than never! This has been my camera bag for a while the dA PRO Camera Bag.
I find it just the right size to carry my essentials, without being too bulky. A lot of my camera-wielding friends with too-large backpacks have repeatedly expressed their envy. Those straps on the front are for carrying tripods. They're removable if you don't need them.

And here's how it looks when opened. What I've got in there currently is my camera, extra lens, LED camera light panel, charger, USB cord, extra battery, extra memory ca

Sorry about the nth edit. I fixed up a lot of the text. It seems my brain wasn't functioning as well as I thought when I first wrote this journal entry. (I'm not entirely sure it's performing very well right now also.) Added a few more omake pics - they just deserve to be shared. Oh, and check out our spanking new matching Bleach avatars! Hahaha!

What did you think of RotG? And thank you!Hey guys! This one is a little long, but please read on!What did you think of RotG? And thank you!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off i'd just like to say thank you for all the support on The Night Meeting. I seriously didn't think it would get much response, and i was shocked when they did! So seriously. Thank you.
Oh, and i have tried to reply to every comment i can to say "Thank you" to every one who supports it.
I'm sorry if you get sick of it, or annoyed but hey, I'm Canadian.
We're polite. It's what we do.
On another note, i am assuming most of you have seen Rise of the Guardians, and if you haven't, go see it. Srsly. Go.
For those of you who HAVE seen the movie, i would like to know what you think of it.
And when i say "what you think of it", i mean other than loving Jack Frost XD
But i don't blame you if you really loevd it just because of Jack. I mean hey...
That boy is sex on a stick.
Here is my opinion on the movie.
I will be the first one to say Guardians was not perfect- but i did enjoy it very very much.

Snow Called, Jack CameSo, I was riding the bus home, and I was really depressed for some reason. I began to write a depressing poem and read it aloud. No one paid much attention to me. They continued to chat amongst their little groups.Snow Called, Jack Came2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I felt a cold familiar presence. It was Jack's presence. I looked up from my poem. I looked at the windows and saw that they all had become foggy. I felt a bit happier because I knew Jack was there. I wrote on the foggy window "Hi Jack." Then, I went back to writing. I looked back at the window and wrote it again, but this time backwards so Jack could read it. I went back to writing again. Then, I turned back to the window as the words faded away. I drew a snowflake on the window and smiled sadly. I was still feeling a depressed. I don't know why. I was happy earlier today, but I suddenly got very depressed for some reason. I was just about to look away when it started snow really hard! It was the most snow we're gotten this winter! And, it happened in April! In spring! (Ear

You got up and got dressed for school.
You were popular at your school. All the girls love you (some boys too), all your teachers love you, you were pretty smart, and you absolutely 'cute' to everyone. EVERYONE.
After you got dressed you went downstairs to get some breakfast. Your 16 year old sister was waiting for you so you could take her to school. Yes you both were going to the same school, GET OVER IT.

A bit of personal lifeFirst of all, I'd like to thank all of you for your kind reactions on my last journal. I didn't really feel like replying to everyone in person. But I do want to let you know I really appreciate the support I got from you, and I've read every single message.A bit of personal life2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I first wrote that journal, I was in doubt whether to post it or not. Because, even though many artists experience it at least once in their career, having an artblock seems to be kind of a taboo in the art world. It's like admitting failure. Nobody ever likes to do that. I don't like it either. But keeping this kind of thing a secret, felt a bit dishonest to me. I thought to myself; "Would I dislike an artist I admire just because he/she had an artblock?" and the answer was "no". I would probably appreciate it if a public person admitted something like that, because it would make them seem a lot more human.

Cosplay adviceWith each day going by, I am asked more & more on cosplay advice.Cosplay advice3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Lala, can you give me some cosplay advice? I am going to cosplay so-&-so.." (Etc. etc.,)
"I was wondering if you have any tips for me when it comes to cosplaying..?"
I have spent years thinking about how to even respond to this sort of question, there is so much advice I want to give, but I don't want to give it to just one person.
Thus... I am going to lay it all out right here on this journal.
If you are the type to say: "TL;DR" Then go ahead & leave now, or just read tip #4. XD To those who actually want to see what my advice is, continue on this long jolly yellow brick road. (Whether you cosplay Wizard of Oz or not. LOL.)

How to Train your Dragon 2 Teaser Trailer!"How To Train Your Dragon 2 Turned Hiccup Into One Hot Piece of CG Ass."How to Train your Dragon 2 Teaser Trailer!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
"Fox gave us a first look at How To Train Your Dragon 2 at CinemaCon — and the biggest surprise was a brand new look for Hiccup. Suddenly, the skinny Viking boy has become a leather-tricked out hottie who sky dives off his dragon for fun. Minor spoilers...
The first footage from How To Train Your Dragon 2 reunites Toothless and Hiccup — but they're now a whole lot older and a heck of a lot cooler. The whole scene revolves around a Hiccup and Toothless flying through the sky, but just seeing how these two have changed completely changes the feel of the sequel.
For one, Toothless' damaged tail fin has been painted red to mimic the tail sign of an old fighter plane. His gear has been upgraded, but the black little dragon still maintains his adorably puppy/cat like demeanor.
Hiccup is clad head-to-toe in protective flying leathers. In fact, you can't even see his face until the end, when he rips off his le

2014 Yaya Han Calendar - it's here!I thought now would be a good time to make the calendar available to the public since they were shipped out to me yesterday! After the successful trial run of last year's calendar, I wanted to make an even better cosplay calendar for 2014!2014 Yaya Han Calendar - it's here!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To summarize: The 2014 Limited Edition Yaya Han Calendar features 12 months of new cosplay images printed on glossy 11x17 paper, which flips open to a 11x24 calendar. Out of the 12 monthly images, only 2 have been released before, all others are brand new and shot exclusively for the calendar. None of the images will be available as a print or poster, you will only be able to see them in the calendar.
FREE shipping within USA and Canada, $10 shipping everywhere else! It is again $24.99, just like last year, and will be signed and personalized by me! I'll post some teaser pics soon but you get a great idea of the calendar's look from the cover and back cover alre
ImprovementOver the years, many people have asked me for how long I've been drawing. While it's true that I started drawing as soon as I was able to hold a pencil, I was never that serious about it. In a sense, you can ask yourself if I was any serious on art altogether. Because, in the end, all kids draw. I think most people can remember making drawings in grade school. Because it's something kids do naturally. Depicting the world around them with images. The beautiful thing is that kids have no fear. They just draw whatever they like, and are usually happy with it. It isn't until the age of 10 or 12, that the outside world suddenly expects you to be either good at something, or stop doing it. It's at that age that we become self cautious about drawing. And therefore it's around that age many kids eventually stop drawing.Improvement2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

DARK JACK WAS CANON!!OMFG.DARK JACK WAS CANON!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Dark Jack was canon at one point in the development of the Rise of the Guardians movie!
And not even when Pitch asked Jack to join him in Antarctica, but actually BEFORE Jack was chosen as a Guardian!
Wiki tells all.
"The team also toyed with an idea for Jack's back story, he and Pitch could have been like brothers. Jack could have been a bad guy but he and Pitch had a fight which cost Jack his memory, and giving the Guardians reason to not trust Jack."
Here is the link if you don't believe me:
No wonder Cold and Dark go so well together
Artistic insecurityIt's funny how people seem to think that I'm all that great, just because I make the art I do, and I voice my opinion here in an occasional journal-article. Like any other artist out here, I have my own doubts about my art, and I have a hard time facing them every now and then. I'm not perfect. I'm far from where I want to be. And lately I'm quite uncertain of where I want to go with my art. It's something that is bothering me quite a bit, and blocked my creativity.Artistic insecurity2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I started doing art again, somewhere at the start of 2010, I used to very very insecure about my art. I never joined contests because I'm terribly afraid of failing. Honestly, I would feel bad about myself for weeks if I didn't at least end up in the honorable mentions. I never made tutorials because I was afraid one of DA's members would come up and say to me: "Why are you teaching this shit? You don't know anything about art!". And although I never liked to do fanart, I wouldn't probably have dared to do it either. A

I beg to differ! Because I think it doesn't hurt to look back on what you already achieved, every once in a while.
In contrary; it can be a great motivation.
I came to DeviantArt, almost 7 years ago, with close to no expectations.
To provide you a bit of a background; As a kid, I used to show my drawings to all the people around me (to the level of sheer annoyance). And in the early years of the internet, I posted my writings and drawings on several Dutch forums, where I got quite the feedback on it. But as social media gradually took over the internet, and the small forums I used to reside on died a slow death, I realized the stage of getting feedback there would soon be over for me.
DeviantArt was in that sense the next place to move to. A community that wasn't killed by the influence of social media. But it was a hard place to move to.

Cosplay Reference LibraryHello Everyone!Cosplay Reference Library2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last year I started a website called Cosplay Reference Library. http://cosplayreferencelibrary.wordpress.com/
"This site was made to be used as a universal tool/place for all the cosplayers in the world to find pictures for their cosplay. One place to find pictures so cosplayers don't have to waste hours searching and can spend more time making their cosplays and being apart of the cosplay community.
Any references and referencing sites are always appreciated along with tutorial links. If you know any artists or cosplayers who make a lot of tutorials or referencing sheets please tell us. We are searching for artists who might be able to fill the gap on some proper character drawings. Free, by request or not, character design break downs is VERY appreciated.
If you like the website, please tell us, please comment. Please tell us that this stuff is helpful for you, or if there is more you want. We'll do our best to find what you need and add it to the site
Username changes?I had to kind of do a double-take when I realized DA just introduced this feature.Username changes?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You know, there was a time when I wanted to change my name to ANYTHING other than SonicRocksMySocks. I thought it up when I was 15 without realizing I'd be saddled with that alias for potentially a lifetime.
When I started gaining renown on the internet, there was even a time where I considered making a new DeviantArt account JUST to change my username, but by then my reputation was already cemented. It's silly and childish and doesn't fit a 20-something artist who is trying to get serious about her art...
After working on my 8th DeviantArt anniversary flash and going back to my roots, it sort of dawned on me.
No other username fits me better.
Maybe I was embarrassed of it for a time, but now, after 8 years, there's no way in hell I'd ever be anybody else. My art is ABOUT childhood and youthful spirit, and that's what I remember when I think of my nickname. It reminds me of where I ca
