(FAQs) Wig Commissions - A Purchasers GuideSo one of the most Frequently Asked Question I've EVER had was: "How much are your wigs?"(FAQs) Wig Commissions - A Purchasers Guide2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I've been asked this so many times, I decided to write out a guide fully explaining in detail what kind of price range you can expect based on what you ask for. Now remember, this is a guide strictly based on how I ship my wigs, and what charges I decide are best for me and my experiences. Other people may be cheaper, or cost more, depending upon their own personal choice, lifestyle, and experience. Since my price ranges vary so much depending upon what is requested- I thought it preferable I break it down based on wig length/style, explain how special styling requests apply- and then explain all the excess variable costs.
Length/Style Explanations—-*These prices vary by 20.00-40.00 if you are a customer who is NON-US
RUSH Charge- When someone wants a wig within a week of payment. If I have to place you in priority over previous orders, the charge will apply.

For Jibril, we only had three possible options which had a colour reference, one of it didnt show enough and the other one was to simple, so... making this outfit wasnt really a decision, we had to xD But I really have to say, I love this design, because the colours are soooo awesome! Normally you wouldnt use such colors together, but Kaori Yuki did, and it looks great. Of course, one of the biggest deals was to find the exact colors, cause if you cant do that it might look strange after all =O But after months of searching we found everything we wanted and now it looks fantastic *-* The thing I`m even more happy about is... cosplaying Jibril.

The grand city of Taitle, once bustling with life and thought and steam-powered inventions, stands deserted save for the stray passing inventor salvaging scrap metal from its workings and a stubborn old man http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb2/Sins-of-Angels/Oldmansketch.jpg who has lived on the same plot of land his ancestors have all his life. He didnt mind the old abandoned buildings, the winding Victorian architecture that was crumbling in places, or the almost rhythmic release of steam from street vents. No one knew where the vents went, or why they were there, or even how to properly begin to repair the citys maze of architecture to make it living again, but the vents are there, leading to nowhere, and the city is there, and had, at one point, worked for the people in it. All it works for now, o

But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.

COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!Hi guys!! Thank you as always to all watchers and everyone who faves and comments - I'm so sorry I don't have much time these days to reply to everything, but I definitely do read and appreciate them all!COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!
I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^ That said, hope you enjoy! *chu*
Any questions please feel free to ask!

It is common curtousy to not question someone you don't really know. Right?
You're walking down the street and see a gentleman in a wheelchair with cuts and scars all over.
Typical initial reaction: Oh, that person has been through something to make him that way. Try not to stare and continue about your business.
You wouldn't run up to that stranger and ask in their face, "HEY MAN. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU? WHAT ARE ALL THOSE MARKS ON YOUR SKIN? WHY ARE YOU MISSING A LEG? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR ARM? WHY ARE YOU SO WEIRD LOOKING?"
Why would you do it on the internet...?

More ways to promote your work on dA......that you might not have thought of!More ways to promote your work on dA...3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Part of the fun of creating art is sharing it with other artists and art appreciators. Whether you're seeking feedback, promoting your creations for sale (as dA prints or maybe directing people to cool stuff in your etsy shop), offering stock and resources for others to use or simply aiming to get your work 'out there' for the deviant world to enjoy, there are lots of ways to do that through deviantART.
Everyone knows about the Thumbshare Forum, Groups and Featured Deviation modules on your profile page, but there are other ways to promote your art that you may not have considered before. Here are just a few suggestions...
Thumbs in Artist's Comments
You can put thumbnails in the Artist's Comments on your deviations. This is a great way to show off connected images (like if you submit a bunch of photos from the same shoot to dA) or a collection of deviations on a theme. You might want to include mor

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!

With Christmas coming up pretty fast, I decided to do a giveaway for Christmas, actually 12 days worth. Pretty sweet right? The twelve days leading up to and on Christmas itself, I will be giving away different gifts to people who enter, from premium memberships, to shirts, to collectibles.
Now, this project doesn't start until December 14th, but there's a reason why I'm announcing it now. I added up the cost of the prizes, and its not exactly cheap, over 14,000 points. So, I'm making this journal today to see if anyone would be willing to help donate towards this cause. Of course, I should have done all of this earlier, but the idea didn't strike me until yesterday.
On the front of my page, I have a donation pool set up with the amount of points that I need to reach my goal. If I don't make the goal before then, that's fine. I'll cough up my own money, but its open to anyone who wants to donate and take part.

Winter Alliance Contest! Greetings, fair Allies! It is my pleasure to announce the Winter Alliance Contest!Winter Alliance Contest!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I thought I would try to do something about that. And so the Alliance was born!
Because I, your founder, have a deep and abiding love for the seasons, this group will now host seasonal contests, and as the Autumn Contest is now over, it is time for Winter to reig

Biggest Jack Frost Moment in History.So, I decided to go see that "Rise of The Guardians" movie thinking it might be pretty good. I went to see the movie by myself, so when I walked into the theater there is nothing but little kids and their parents as far as the eye can see. I suddenly felt kind of silly for wanting to come see the movie now. As I was walking up the stairs to the top to get a seat I noticed most of the little kids started to stare at me. Ignoring the weird looks of these strange children, I found a empty seat next to an old couple that had brought their granddaughter to see the movie. Looking out over the theater again to see if there was another empty spot, I failed at finding one. I settled in the seat next to the little girl and I had a sick feeling she was going to be one of those kids that talks through the whole movie. I looked down at my pocket and pulled out my pocket watch (yeah, I know I'm a little too old fashion sometimes, call me crazy) and realized I had a good 10 minutes before the movie sBiggest Jack Frost Moment in History.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Fan Fiction Contest - Freaky Friday!What if one day you woke up to find out you were in the body of your favourite character and they were in your body? What crazy things would happen to you both?Fan Fiction Contest - Freaky Friday!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is what this contest is about: Fan Fic writers are invited to tell us what swapping bodies with a character from any fandom of their choice would be like.
Write a short Fan Fiction about your body swap experience with a character in a fandom of your choice.
You must put YOURSELF in their body, and the fandom character in your body. We want to see both characters facing this freaky incident.
You now posses their body and all their powers, but there are limitations. Please refrain from writing anything of sexual nature.
The character now posses your body and has to face reality! So they no longer have their special powers and no one but themselves know about the swap. For example: They would break their hand trying to get coins to pop out of bricks! Or even a co
