Midlands 2012 - Skyward Sword Photo DumpMidlandsMidlands 2012 - Skyward Sword Photo Dump3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ended up pulling an all nighter to get everything finished as per usual
Despite working on the costumes for a good 2 months oTL
But I'm really happy with the end result - all four costumes actually looked good for once!
/the fourth originally intended as part of our skit and thus has not been used yet
Arrived early with PlummerC1 , Zombi-zone and Cameron and met up with kagen-no-tsuki
As it turned out we weren't able to get two of the costumes finished in time for our skit
which was really unfortunate - but hopefully in the future we'll have them finished <3
We headed over mid afternoon and modified our entry and ended up rushing to queue up
/we skipped prejudging since we'd still like to do our original skit at some point
A video of our skit can be found here courtesy of Holly =]
Ciaran and I both found it really hard not to laugh at Cameron when he came on stage
Twilight Princess StuffI totally forgot I named my file PeterPan. When the light spirit of Faron woods was like, "Heroic PeterPan" it was impossible not to crack up.Twilight Princess Stuff1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And then Colin's all like "PeterPan will save us!" all I could think about was Wendy, and everyone else laughing like Captain Hook and Smee.
When you fight the monster on the boar to get Colin back, I can't be the only one who found the cutscene funny rather than epic. The game was trying so hard to be epic but...lol what was with Epona? She looked all limp and rubbery, her foot lifting off the ground twice...baha what was with the animation? The official art of Link on Epona looks awesome, but in the game it was funny. And the monster on the boar fell like a ton of bricks it was hilarious. Did anyone notice that TP's Epona's neck seems kinda stiff? Majora's Mask Epona's isn't. Weird.
Ok, so while I'm poking some fun at that, I gotta say that I adore the animation on Epona and Wolf Link. It's very addictive gameplay. Epona's really fast in this

Recently, there's been a link circulating on deviantART that automatically
deactivates your account. Somehow, the site was hacked into, and now
if you visit ~gary-niger's profile and type in your

in your URL bar: bosslegen.de/users/login/ DO NOT LOG IN. GO BACK TO THE DEVIANTART HOMEPAGE RIGHT AWAY.
The link itself does you no harm whatsoever, and you can browse the

Yellowfang was a

She had a raspy voice and yellow teeth.
Her pelt is dark gray, and her eyes are orange. The color of a lit cigarette and its contents. Even worse, her apprentice was CINDERpelt.
AND SHE DIED OF SMOKE. AHAAAAA.

A warning to the people
One of the questions I get a lot are "who do you buy ____ from?"
I always assumed that all sites were pretty equal,
but I recently have been, and still am, dealing with a dispute form a contact website,
they have broken their our rules but still refusing to refund the purchase,
and because of the way they worded the product paypal is refusing to step up.
I'm pretty burned,
and I know others have been screwed over,
or have had major problems from dealing with people online.
As well as people who have had amazing experiences.

ALL THE IMPORTANT INFORMATION IS IN THE VIDEO, NOT HERE!
YouTube didn't allow me to have such a long description! So, we have the document here.
[Happy/content, then a little disappointed]: Yeah… He's such an angel, I'd heard sooo many times it would be such hard work… He just sits there, most of the time. Doesn't move around and just stares into the space behind me.
[Surprised, then switching to a murderous, cold, slow tone]: Wait! …Only one person hated Ethan this much… This time he is just asking for it all! I've tried to put up with him, but he's gone too far! I'll… I'll MURDER him!
[Enraged, then quiet and serious, still cold]: Not as terrible as you! He did NOTHING! He was just as innocent as I was! Before… before you ruined me… [Emphasis on the word "ruined".]
Rats in a lab challenge!~Closed~reviewing submisioTANZ: You have a better chance of winning if you were originally in the roleplay, as I have noticed people are in this for the points and prizes.Rats in a lab challenge!~Closed~reviewing submisio2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We... we weren't expecting a buttload of people who just want to win. We thought this would bring back the good old days of RiaL. They were... devoted, and serious, and determined, and they followed the rules. Now, we've had numerous reports of rule breaking characters, members, and boards. We thought this would remind the people who ACTUALLY joined on the glorious day of May 15th, 2012. After about a month... we were dead. To bring those members back, Rose and I decided on a contest to reel them back into RPing with us. But since it didn't work as hopefully as planned, I thought I'd put it out there that we trust people more when they were originally in the RP.
~Halloween is days away however is the spirit that counts~

Kuro Cosplay Tips [Alois Trancy]This time another member has taken the time to write out cosplay tips for Alois Trancy. As an Alois cosplayer myself, I have also written in my own ideas! Please read if you wish to gain tips, helpful hints, and advice if you plan to cosplay this fabulous character or already do <3Kuro Cosplay Tips [Alois Trancy]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Provided to you by :iconmasterciel-bocchan: and :iconcult-clueless:
Alois is a boy who wears short shorts. Easy enough, but that's what you would think. When cosplaying as Alois, you want to make sure that your shorts are not reaching your knees. They have to be at least mid thigh or shorter. As for his stockings, they go above his knee and never touch his shorts. You'd be surprised how many people just wear black pantyhose.
Alois's ring is also on his right index finger, always~!
Now this is just a petpeeve of mine but when the shoes are just regular high top heels it bothers me. He wears boots!
