Now, I realize that the prizes aren't all that great, and I'll get to what they are in a little bit, but for right now let me just explain the contest a little more.
I got this idea after watching afterschool specials. My mom was talking about them, and now I love them a lot. The specific one that gave me the idea is the one titled "Amy and the Angel"
I just thought this would be a good idea. And maybe if it got enough attention, I'd do it annually? That's what I plan to do, anyway. By next year I would probably be more prepared and have more prizes to offer but since it's already January I should go ahead and start o3o
Anyhow, let me explain the theme a little bit. What I want from each entry is a piece of artwork that has something to do with the theme. I want it to be inspiring. Like, if someone was considering taking their life and saw your art, it would provide either hope, support, or an invit

Tips for Young Writers...with some help from BuffyHello readers!Tips for Young Writers...with some help from Buffy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I spend a lot of time talking with young writers about writing. Whether it’s the art of putting a novel together or ways to break into the industry, I get asked a lot of the same questions. So I thought I’d compile a list of tips here for writers getting started at any age. Maybe you’ve heard some of these before, maybe not. Either way, I hope they help you along your path.
1. Show, don’t tell.
Yes, you’ve definitely heard this before. A million times over. But what does it mean? The difference between showing and telling is the difference between sitting in a cafe in Paris sipping a latte and reading a menu online. You want to immerse your reader. If I’m telling, I’m over-describing, maybe even listing scenery. If I’m showing, I’m slipping in details where they fit naturally.

Opening Wig Commissions!Hello all!Opening Wig Commissions!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Due to an overwhelming positive response I am opening up wig commissions starting in June! At this point in time I am ready to start taking commissions to order bases for in order for those bases to be here in June so I can start work on them right away
I will be accepting 5 commissions to start.
The pricing will be done on a quote basis, which means that I will assess the price of the commission once I have all of the information on the project. It will factor in base wig cost + materials + work + shipping
To ensure that I can get you the best product possible, I am hoping that people commissioning me will use the following form so that I can know all of your stipulations up front

Shipping preferences (folded inside out and ziplock bagged wig or shipping on wig head in a box):

Louie Schwartzberg has made it his life’s mission to use his cinematic artistry to raise the alarm for public awareness of the dire situation we are facing in the possible collapse of our taken-for-granted natural resources. The “colony collapse disorder” currently decimating our honeybees was the prompt for Louie’s new movie, Wings of Life, which at it's essence, is a love story that feeds the earth.

Devious Journal Entrywhy does age always have to be such a deciding factor in relationships? Charles-Guillaume Le Normant d'Étiolles, was four years older then Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, as was the custom. But I believe love has no age, many a Roman girl was married at a young age to a man usually about 5 or 6 years older. As the Irish proverb stats "Three things come without asking: fear, jealousy, and love" so why should a self-destructive impulse be judged just by how old the members of the couple are? As another Irish proverb stats "Your feet will bring you to where your heart is" So I leave this message for the world, life is to short to let age get in your way, Drink, love, and be merry. For you never know when your last day will be.Devious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This

My internet is being friendly with a sloth right now, so you know how a sloth is right? It's a very slow animal... and my internet is veeeeery slow as well(I know, I'm not making sense now... am I? ^^"). That's why I decided to take a break from Featuring people for now! It'll be back some time around June. I'll just have to change my internet provider and hopefully it gets faster.
Not just that, my laptop also needs some fixing and I think some of you people already know... it shuts down every now and then, and it is, of course, always unexpected. It's too depressing when I'm in the middle of typing everything about the Featured then it shuts down. Happened to me few times already... u_u So I'll have my laptop fixed first! My classes starts on June so I'll be busy too, but I'll be sure to follow my schedule as much as possible and come here.
For the meantime, I'm listing the priority artworks here(If I miss something, please do tell!): [I won't hav

Well, our jermany211 was the winner! CONGRATZ!
I'm really happy I had the chance to interview her about this costume and that she was willing to answer me!
KWC: Introduce yourself. How old are you, where do you live, and what do you do?
I'm Jermany, though some people know me as Jen. I'm Brazilian-Taiwanese and I live in Taiwan with my family when I'm on vacation. I'm a college student in the US who also tutors Spanish and English on occasion.
KWC: What made you decide to cosplay as Genjo Sanzo?
Saiyuki was one of the manga series that I grew up with and I've always loved the characters. I guess I wanted to relive a childhood memory. Also, he's super badass.
KWC: Tell us all the details you would like to share about the crafting of this cosplay.
