We're over 80,000!?!? Aki Con and UpdatesI had noticed that our subscriber count on the FDP Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/user/fightingdreamerspro?feature=guide) account was getting close to hitting 80,000 last week but I figured that we had until after N2U before that happened. Yesterday I logged into the FDP Youtube account and realized (after a while because I'm always the last horse to cross the finish line XD) that we had hit 80,000!!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!! According to a 2005 census the city of Yalta has a population of 79, 982...

But seriously... I love you guys. You've given us so much support whether it's through comments, drawings/gifts, notes, favourites/likes/retweets/reblogs, coming up to us to say hello at cons and even going out of your way to ask your local cons to invite us as guests... if I think about it for too long it blows my mind.

Mainly it would result in 100% more videos for you guys, as well as being able to branch out and really dedicate time in production and editing.
This is something I've been talking about with Kelly for a while now, and I have recently (after some serious talk) gained my mothers support in the venture.
However, I can't do it for free. This is where you guys come in.
1) In the last few months of 2012, I plan to push for new designs in the Parlé store. So if you'd like to support us; then please buy a t-shirt or two when they are ready to go!
US STORE: http://parleproductionsusa.spreadshirt.com
UK STORE: http://parleproductions.spreadshirt.co.uk
2) Tell your friends about our shows, make your own videos talking about the shows. Do journals and tumblr blogs; anything to get the Parlé name out there and appealing to more people. The more people we get; the more likely this will happen.

Myself, VandorWolf and Valdrein got into London Saturday morning and after going through the obstacle course that is the International Visitors way through Gatwick airport we were greeted by a sleepy KellyJane who had woken up at 5am or something crazy like that to come get us at the airport (weloveyou). We spent the day with Parle in stinky plane clothes and with about 3 hours of sleep each which just made everything far more magical (except for the magic show we watched in Oxford Circus which was crap...

I finally get to translate article about my “Batman Returns” Catwoman costume. And just right time for Halloween x)
I'm very sorry if there are mistakes in the text! And I'm sorry that there are no wip photos, I did not make them, unfortunatelly. But in this article I tried to upload the materials, that helped me to make my own costume.
<cut> Well, first of all few words about why I chose this version. I’m a cat person, I always had cats at home and I love them very much. So it’s not a surprise that I also love such an amazing character as Catwoman. And my first meeting with her happened, when I was a child thanks to Tim Burton’s movie “Batman Returns”. I was amazed by Michelle Pfeiffer’s acting and since then her Selina Kyle is the only one for me. She’s beautiful, dangerous and a little crazy, exactly how Catwoman should be. I alw

Hello everyone, long time no talk :iconimhappyplz:
I trust that everyone has been well?
How have I been? Okay in the sense that I haven't got a cold anymore. HUZZAAAAH!
In terms of other things, work usually...the usual stuff. But, it's more customers that are the most irritating thing. Although, some people l who work there are an irritation because of their laziness. I have learnt to ignore them and get on with what I'm doing because no one else is going to bother sorting them out. Lost causes :lmao
I suppose I could talk about things in the future....I would if I had anything exciting to say about it really. I am looking forward to Metrocon in July of course, I just haven't spoken much about as talking about it so far from when it occurs just makes me feel more irritable because it isn't sooner.

Although I would love it if you watched the video, it shows no where near as much work as was put into this shoot. Some of this is embarrassing but I love reading about people's mistakes and how they overcame them. So here are mine.
I bought the costume last November, thinking I would be able to shoot the next week, edit easy peasy and be done in a month. Right.
I booked the first model several times over the course of 3 months but she flaked every time. I'm actually quite happy, as Laura turned out to be PERFECT, easy going, and an overall better model. Laura was kind enough to shoot with me twice, as I was hesitant about the poses I picked out. We kept some, threw out others and added new ones for the second time around.
For the WWI shot, I first tried to make the Notre Dame ruins by hand or find realistic models used for game tables. Turns out no one buys them anymore and thus I had no luck finding one. I att

Galadriel (LOTR / Mirror dress)
My classic Batgirl suit and my Mera suit are finished so far. (except for a few little changes on Mera's sleeves). Don't worry, the yellow pouch will be exchanged with a red one (The yellow one is for my black suit). I just wanted to see how it looks complete. For Batgirl the only thing I have to do now is the cape. I am really looking forward to wear the whole costume!
I also finished Dove's base suit. I'll work on the accessoires in the following days and hope to finish it quickly. <3 I love Babs, Dawn and Mera sooooo much! I'm so inspired and motivated at the moment. Great start into 2013!

Cos, 50 Shades of Grey is the most disgusting, lustful, destructive, cancerous, repulsive, make-you-vomit, downright-sickening, perverted, sinful, exceedingly harmful, and pornographic piece of trash to have ever been made on the face of the earth since American Psycho and The F-Word (otherwise known as What If - not the Kevin Sorbo film, btw; I don't understand why they steal titles, sheesh 0-0). Seriously.
I hate pornography so freaking much, it makes me wanna vomit.
I mean, pornography does nothing but destroy. It destroys marriages, tears apart families, creates more increase on crimes such as rape, and it damages the entire society as a whole. I mean, I can't believe that viewers are falling for this disgusting material not knowing or even considering the social, psychological and spiritual consequ

What would you do if you had to escape, night after night, just to not get captured by people who will force you to kill others?IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ! - Stop Joseph Kony3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
For us this is absoltely impossible to imagine what it has to be like and every single one of us knows that it is wrong! Sadly, this does happen. There is a man out there forcing children to kill their loved ones. A man by the name of Joseph Kony. Whats even worse is that no one knows about him, he is completely invisible to the world. To this day he is still out there committing these unthinkable crimes, and no one is stopping him. We must stop Joseph Kony.
But what can we do to stop such an injustice? We can make his name known. We can spread the word. We can make the world see him. I may be just one voice, but with this one voice I can tell countless others, who in turn, can tell even more people. We are lucky enough
