Cosplay for BeginnersSo, you've decided you want to be a cosplayer. Great! You'll have tons of fun. But where to start?Cosplay for Beginners5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Step one: Choose a character to cosplay
How do you choose which costume you want to do? Choosing can be tricky, and you can't start until you've picked. No one else can tell you how to choose, but it might help if you start by figuring out why it is you want to cosplay.
People have lots of reasons, but in my experience, there are three main reasons why someone might decide to be a cosplayer, and knowing why you do it will help you choose. Most of us are a combination of these, but fit into one slightly better than the others.
1. The Super Fan- these cosplayers have a character or characters that they just absolutely adore. They know absolutely everything about them and the series and want to show the world. They choose their favorite characters.
If you're a super fan, picking is easy! Just do your favorite characters fro
Sakura Con 2013WELL Sakura Con is just around the corner!! 8D I'm really excited that we get to go down to Seattle for Sakura Con this year, because for a while there we were pretty sure that it wasn't going to be possible for us to go at all considering that we have Banzaicon and GCFF/Supanova Expo right after it. But thanks to friends and getting our stuff together we managed to make it work! I can't wait to hang out with our con friends :3 and I also can't wait to meet all the people who have posted that they will be going to SC this year! So many new faces to meet, and so many familiar faces to catch up with 8D I'm looking forward to a nice, chill hang out con. More than likely we will just be hanging around the lobby near the fountains or up around the windows on the fourth floor outside the artist/dealers hall.Sakura Con 20132 years ago in Personal More Like This

Aprendiendo a mejorar cada díaHola, una vez mas les escribo algunos de mis pensamientos basados en experiencias propias, esta vez les hablare de la forma de mejorar cada día su trabajo.Aprendiendo a mejorar cada día3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Todos sabemos que la practica es el método mas certero para mejorar cada día, si preguntas a algún artistita como le hace para lograr resultados tan buenos en su trabajo, casi siempre te dirá que es la practica, aunque algunas otras te dirá que es el tiempo que le dedica o que estaba inspirado.
Personalmente no creo en la inspiración, solo creo en el flujo creativo y en el proceso de diseño, sin embargo es muy común escuchar el termino inspiración en las cuestiones que tienen que ver con las artes graficas, pero ese es otro tema.
Volviendo a la importancia de la practica sabemos que es el camino demostrado hacia la mejora verdadera, pero ¿es lo único que hay que hacer para mejorar?, ¿Si siempre practico las mismas cosas, en verdad estoy mejorando?

On another note, I've just started watching Doctor Who the past couple weeks! If you care nothing for the show you should probably not bother reading past this point. It's a bit of a rant
I actually tried to watch the reboot with the 9th Doctor like a year ago, and found it just...weird. I even gave it a few episodes and then gave up, completely confused as to why people even like the show. Then I randomly watched a newer episode on TV recently. It was the very first episode with Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor, and I loved it! So I gave it another shot. It was a little hard to get into Eccleston, but by t

Introduction: Created WorldsMany thanks to :iconCamaroLp: for the translationand the opportunity to talk about my worlds of English-speaking readers.Introduction: Created Worlds2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This log reveals a series of articles about Created Worlds and Esvarra.
Estrarra, a planet, is where the history of the Created Worlds began. It associated with Earth in a special way. There was a similar evolution and Esvarra's telepathists have an unidirectional mental connection to Earth's inhabitants. This connection isn't completelly investigated, but it had a great impact on the civilizations of Esvarra.
The haynas are main intelligent species of the planet. By their phisiology they are more primitive than humans and more closer to baboons, than the anthropoids. Haynas have (like the most mammals of Esvarra) empathy and telepathy, specific "nonclosed" brain. So this allows them to create a mental connection with their own kind and with other animals. Thus can be obtained collective intelligence (not the mind, the mind of each one is indivi
So. Xbox One.So. Xbox One.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So. I guess we're all PC gamers now.
I've been playing console games my entire life. I came into this world with a controller in one hand and AV cables in the other- which was extremely uncomfortable for my mother, mind you.
But now, with Xbox trying to BE a PC but without the high-end graphics, modding capability or the cross-system ownership of games you get with, say, Steam, there's no reason anymore to not just play the damn games on PC.
I don't want my console to control my smart TV, I don't want it to integrate with Skype or let me switch tabs by spastically waving my hand at the Kinect. I just want it to play my games, that I paid for and own.
At this point I'm not even mad. Just disappointed at the end of an era because of greed and MS not having any bloody idea what they're doing in the games industry.
In other news I really need to pick up Metro Last Light.
- Contest: The Dragon's Breath-- Contest: The Dragon's Breath-2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Beware of the dragon’s breath
Fiery flames from dragons tongue
High above the clouds
In flight in the skies
Fiery flames to consume the land
In the mists before time
Ancient dragons filled with fiery rage
To consume man and beast
Beware the ancient maiden’s song
A sacrifice to appease the dragons’ ire
Fearsome symmetry in dragons’ lair
Beyond castle wall and keep
Littered with the bones of forlorn knights
Victims of the dragon’s wrath
Long time burned and consumed
In the fiery serpent’s tormented reach
Is such a beast a servant from hell?

Long overdue will be followed by two little specials:
- Nicoli's dream
- Colapesce's reality
Which will basically conclude this volume - because this story is one volume in length (dear God).
Afterwards according to polls we have:
- Circes (this is the story of how Castalia got to meet Circes and so we get to know why she is also affected by her spells and is so scared of this woman)
- Murder in Bologna (this story covers the second to last one of the Origins cicle - here we see how Kane and Wes met Martin during their University years and also got to solve a murder)
- How durians arrived in Italy (this is a story set on my side of the World - South East Asia, where I currently live - so you get to see malay pirates, bugis pirates and tonchin pirates and pontianaks and zombies hahaha)
- Badia (in this story you see Kane and Castalia going back to Sicily and Cas

Seems like the last time I said anything on here was.. a full year ago, considering my previous journal entry was also a birthday one. Pfffffft. That's terrible.
Been ill for some weeks now, with it only getting worse over these past few days. (Was pretty much flat on my back most of my birthday.) So reading everything posted here, finding gift art and a hell of a lot of really sweet stories from folks has definitely been the highlight of the year.
You guys are marvelous people. And everyone that still comes back here to see the extremely occasional piece of art, well.. I don't know what to say that I haven't already said a million times before. As always, I just hope I keep giving you reasons to come on back.
You all have a brilliant holiday.
Something about me - biography, work, links... I am crazy domesticated cat photographer from SerbiaSomething about me - biography, work, links...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was born in 1981, in Knjazevac (Serbia). Till the age of nineteen I lived in my hometown of Knjazevac.
Afterwards I moved in the city of Nis, where I had attended studies of Architecture at University of Nis.
. . . . .
The photography was introduced to me by my father who is a professional photographer.
I found the interest in photography ten years ago, firstly working on editing and manipulation of other people's photos.
At that time it was just a hobby. Later I found out that it is better to go outside and make my own photos.
I was shooting everything that I came across to, but soon I have realized that I am most attracted by animals,
especially domesticated animals, cats precisely.

Today I am specialized in photographing cats in their natural environment and catchin

Dette er ei buske
