Posing! Tips ~I did these instructions 2 years ago, but I still think they're kind of good I hope you like!Posing! Tips ~6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Posing is crucial for getting an awesome cosplay photo! You should be aware of the basics before you go on a photoshoot. At a convention people are going to want to take pictures of and with you, practice your posing and you'll like the pictures that pop up on facebook afterwards!
Note where there is a source of light, and capture it with your face.
Don’t just stand there! Twist your body a bit and it will come to live in pictures! If you just stand there your hips will look wider than if you twist your body! :3
Beware of your limbs when posing. An arm that’s just hanging there can easily look like a deadweight.
On the subject of arms it’s important to notice how awkward the “hands behind your back”-pose can look. It’s always difficult to know what to do with your arms and hands. If you have a prop it will come more natural (or if your character has a sig
Cosplay Photoshoot EtiquetteMy good friend hikaraseru has written a very good guide on how a standard cosplay photoshoot should be conducted in a conducive manner. I got her permission to post the entire article up, so hope you guys like what she is presenting to us.Cosplay Photoshoot Etiquette3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Want to plan a cosplay shoot, but somehow things just don't turn out right? Maybe the photos were not how you visualised them, or that the photographer seemed to be extra grumpy, or you just don't know what's going on? Read on for how to get the best out of your cosplay shoot:
The 4 Ps:
Having a plan is essential and should take up the most time overall in your shoot. Speak to the photographers closely, because they will be the ones producing the photos that will be the end result; make sure they are aware of the concept and background of the series you're shooting. Some photographers will want to do their own research prior to the shoot (reading the manga/watching the anime/looking up reference photos) - so make sur

Review: THE AVENGERS & DARK SHADOWS (2012)A few of my friends asked me to review the latest film by Marvel comics, THE AVENGERS (2012). Honestly, I don't know what I could possibly say that hasn't been said before, but it was a request. Since I didn't want to write up a twenty-page review, I did, instead, a two-hour podcast of me randomly talking about the film. It's spoiler-heavy, so if you haven't seen it, don't listen to it:youtube.com/watch?v=-OlLeOXoMc8Enjoy and be gentle. This is my first review by myself. It's disorganized, but this is just how I blabber, constantly.Review: THE AVENGERS & DARK SHADOWS (2012)2 years ago in Personal More Like This

So there have been a couple of big things that have come up in the Percy Jackson world and I figured that you guys would want to know so...
1. The Son of Sobek is getting a sequel! It's called The Staff of Serapis and it's about Annabeth and Sadie!
Read an excerpt here: http://rickriordan.com/Files/Documents/StaffofSerapis_excerpt_trade_pbk.pdf
2. The original 5 Percy Jackson books are getting new covers! One will be released every day this week!! They are all done by John Rocco (the same guy who did all of the original covers) so I don't think we have much to worry about.
I will update this journal daily with the new covers as they come out so that pictures can be included:
Let me know what you guys think!

- The Site now has a heading banner that provides quick links to the main Pottermore site, to the Shop and to the Insider.
- It's snowing in Diagon Alley!
- A new Badge has been made available to collect: "Book of Spells - Borrow Miranda Goshawks's Book of Spells from the Restricted Section."
- Lastly, the Insider has posted a little tidbit with teacups and tealeaves asking users what they see. Could this be a hint that Book 3 is on its way???

From now on submissions will be monitored. Due to some incidents of artwork that had nothing to do with The Hunger Games, we have taken measures. Any artwork irrevelent with the theme of the group, of very low quality, stills from the movie, memes etc will not be allowed. Be sure to submit to the right folder, because anything which is submitted in the wrong folder might not get allowed either. This means that you have not taken the time to think before submitting.
Also, the limit to submit is 3 deviations per week. The system will not allow you to submit more, so think and submit only your best of your work. If a person likes your work, they will probably take the time to check out your gallery anyway. There is no need to have 10 pieces of your work in a row to make an impression.
I am sure that this news will not be welcomed by everyone, bu
Audiobook clips on PottermoreIf you've been exploring Moments recently, you might have noticed that audiobook clips play from time to time... fandom site Hypable.com has an article up. Click the link to read the entire article on the site, or read it below:Audiobook clips on Pottermore2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"While browsing through each chapter in the books, you will occasionally hear a clip from that chapter’s Harry Potter audiobook. It will automatically play when you enter a particular moment, and the clips we heard last around 10 – 30 seconds. The audiobook clips used are from Jim Dale’s reading, who narrated the books for United States readers. Stephen Fry was the United Kingdom Potter audiobook narrator.
Visit Chapter 14, Moment 2 (click here if you’re a member) to immediately experience one of the clips. This is as a great addition as it makes Pottermore feel like more of a book experience.
Sucker Punch:: Guardian AngelEveryone has an angel.Sucker Punch:: Guardian Angel3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A guardian who watches over us.
We can't know what form they'll take.
One day, old man.
Next day, little girl.
But don't let appearances fool you.
They can be as fierce as any dragon.
Yet they're not here to fight our battles.
but to whisper from our heart.
reminding that it's us...
lt's every one of us who holds
the power over the worlds we create..
We can deny our angels exist..
convince ourselves they can't be real.
But they show up anyway.
At strange places.
And at strange times.
They can speak through any character
we can imagine.
They'll shout through demons
if they have to...

NOTICE!!!!!Hey, guys, it's Tourniquet again! So, I know that Amy's birthday had recently passed but not without any fabulous birthday cards! I loved and faved them all, because each one was absoluetly amazing.. And AMY LEE agrees!!! Yes, truth is out. I am following Evanescence on tour and every concert I camp out at their tour bus. On her birthday, she came out when I was on my lap top on DA and I wished her a happy birthday from all of us. I also noted to her about birthday cards and she sat next to me as I showed her EVERY SINGLE birthday card for her that I could find from EVERY SINGLE Ev Group. Needless to say, she was overjoyed and loved how our loyalty is STILL going strong.NOTICE!!!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

For those of you who are familiar with the anime, "Otome Youkai Zakuro", I have a message for you:
As a majority of you have expressed (mainly on Crunchyroll), you are yearning for a season 2 of this beloved anime. So am I, but, since the anime came out in 2010, if they were going to do a season 2, they would have done it by now.
But, I have an idea, and if it works, we can acquire the thing that comes close to having a 2nd season...

I'm not used to write about my life here on the DA journals in a blog-like way, but I feel this is a pretty special occasion. As you may have seen, several months ago we made the Dark Steel armor costume from Dragon's Prophet as a commission for Infernum Productions. Well, it turns out they eventually invited me to Gamescom (in Cologne, Germany) along with some great cosplayers! So I'll be attending the convention and I'll wear my armor there, of course!
I'll be tweeting and uploading lots of pictures to our page. So feel free to follow me and, needless to say, if you're also attending Gamescom, come and say hi!!

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject
