Our First Contest: Summer Theme!Alright so I planned to make our first contest simple for everyone seeing that besides staying at home and lounging around all day people have vacation and things of the sort! We all do, so I'm going to be fair.Our First Contest: Summer Theme!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Contest will have prizes for both artists and writers separately seeing I know most of us have different abilities.
Rules for Artists:
1) Draw yourself and the country you are from doing some typical summer activity!
2) If you don't like your home country then draw your favorite
3) Country must be canon!!
4) Please, no suggestive pairings between you and your country seeing people really don't like that. So that definitely means no R-18 art for this contest.
5) Have fun and take your time!
Rules for CountryxReader authors:
1) Write a story of reader-chan and your said country having a typical summer outing.
2) No limits as to romance of course as long as you stay along with the dA guidelines.
3) Note me about the previous rule if you'd like to know more
4) No ReaderxOCs in
WHAT TIME IS IT? AAAADVENTURE TIME COSPLAY ...TIMEAdventure Time cosplay at Fantasy Quest 2WHAT TIME IS IT? AAAADVENTURE TIME COSPLAY ...TIME2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A couple of weeks ago, we attended an event called Fantasy Quest 2. (The very first Fantasy Quest was when we cosplayed Harry Potter characters.)
It was a pretty special day for us because four years ago, we had our first shoot and bonding day with Ysabel SavingSunlight at the venue, Fernwood Gardens.
We've been really into Adventure Time, so many months ago we decided we'd do AT cosplay, and that Fantasy Quest would be a fun opportunity to do so. It feels weird how we had been looking forward to this event for ages, and now it's over!

Tutorial: How to straighten a wigOkay, I promised to translate the tutorials I wrote some time ago and today I'm starting with "How to straighten a wig". Please notice English is not my native language, so you might run into spelling, grammar or punctuation mistakes. I'm really sorry and hope you're able to understand it anyways. If you run into any kind of problems while reading feel free to ask in the comments.Tutorial: How to straighten a wig2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are able to understand German you can go to my Animexx weblog and read it there :3 Unfortunately dA doesn't support embedding my pics into the text so I had to put them directly over/under the text. Sorry for that!
I'm just showing you what works for me, so this is a "you can try this" and not a "this is the only way you can do it".
As you might know wigs are made out of plastic fibers. Plastic is a heat bendable material, so this is the essence of the both methods I will show you. Styling your wig with heat will also work for curling it, making spikes and so on. Please be careful whenev

Just like how the stages differ between the 3DS and Wii U versions of the games, the Trophy Collection will also be different between the two. 3DS will have trophies based around handhelds (with Saria from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D as the example shown), while the Wii U version will have console-based trophies.
A Trophy Shop will be found in SSB4, allowing players to buy trophies with either the gold coins earned in-game or with Play Coins.

Korra finaleSo I know this is probably the unpopular opinion overall, but was anyone else upset over how they chose to end season 1 of Korra? This journal does contain spoilers so if you haven't seen it, leave now.Korra finale3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So there were several things that really bugged me.
1. Korra unlocking her airbending abilities actually didn't bug me at all. What did bug me is how novice airbending defeated Amon. He's an accomplished bloodbender and skilled bender overall. I mean... what the hell?
2. They never even bothered explaining how Amon and his brother were able to bloodbend without a full moon. If you're going to throw something that huge into the story, at least explain it.
3. Amon's character was completely undermined in this episode. Both politically and ethically. I found his stance on bending fascinating throughout the whole series and then it's revealed that he's just a hypocrite? And absolutely no reason as to why he's trying to take everyone else's bending when he's a bender himself? Huh?
4. And thi

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.

She is doing her eye make-up after applying basic make-up like shown before. She will show you one make-up with different colors. I'm holding this tutorial very short with just the steps as such because I already wrote all the tips for applying in the first part of this tutorial.
First she is using black kajal to draw a line on the eyelid and under the waterline of her right eye. The line under her eye is about 1/3 of the complete length of the waterline.

Beat and Rhyme are two of my fish. TWEWY fans will be amused. Everyone else just move on and don't worry about it.
Also once my fish Axel (who was blind at the time) kissed Rhyme on the lips and they both REPELLED from one another in disgust. I've always wanted to draw something horrible based on that.
Naming pets after video game characters has funny results. Much humping. Much hilarious crack pairing.
