Vizkopa's Writing TipsHi everyone!Vizkopa's Writing Tips4 months ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you may know, I’m in my final year of a Creative Writing degree and while I still have a long way to go in terms of my writing skills, I’ve picked up some very useful tips from my tutors over the last few years (and bear in mind, some of these tutors are published writers, so their advice is sound!). These tips have really helped me to improve my writing and I would like to share just a few of them with you all Included in this journal are some points about writing in general, as well as ones that are a little more specific to fan fiction. A lot of them might seem really simple and obvious to some, but they are so very important and I hope everyone can take at least something away from this, and that you continue to be inspired to write and hone your skills
Now I have formatting as number one because so matter how good of a writer you are, no matter how beautiful your prose is, it needs to be readable! A lot of

ATTENTION ONE PIECE FANSI wanted to share with you guys some suuuuuuper One Piece-related news! Have you ever heard of the Unofficial One Piece Podcast? They're a group of chill dudes who discuss all the latest news, manga chapters, anime episodes, and merchandise, to name but a few things. The OP Podcast has also interviewed various Funimation voice actors, like Christopher R. Sabat (Zoro), J. Michael Tatum (Eneru, Dalton, Pearl), Colleen Clinkenbeard (Luffy), Patrick Seitz (Franky), and Vic Mignogna (Nezumi). They've been going since 2009! You guys should definitely give them a listen. One of their correspondents lives in Japan and reports about exclusive One Piece events and trivia. This is the very same podcast that has raised a little over $42,000 for their "Anime Fans Give Back to Japan" charity initiative.ATTENTION ONE PIECE FANS2 years ago in Personal More Like This

This journal is gonna talk about how I actually made my Ahri Costume. I am not pro so my method is gonna waste a lot of fabric like I did.
I used Miyuko's Version as a references because the official paper is a bit small. I believe you can easily get references now because lots of people cosplayer Ahri before.
Materialswill only stated out major materials that you will need to buy, instead of finding them lying around at home.
-Red Matt Satin or printed satin(this work best because of the floral effect, I am out of option SO I used a thick satin instead.
-White Fabric of your choice, feel confortable with it.
-Yellow Satin or printed satin (same reason)
-Bias tape ( if you're using satin then get a satin bias tape)
-Patterned Ribbon/Tape (silver)
-Knitted China Accessories/Red Tassels.
-Big Golden Bell
I start out with the easiest thing - skirt . I draft this free hand.
Just draft the shortes

He comes to us, not to shield us from the harshness of the world but to give us the courage and strength to bear it; not to snatch us away by some miracle from the conflict of life, but to give us peace - His peace - by which we can be calmly steadfast while the conflict rages, and be able to bring to the torn world the healing that is peace.'

Little semi-reviews on some Slovakia OCs across DA1. Ask-Hetalia-SlovakiaLittle semi-reviews on some Slovakia OCs across DA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
With this one you can clearly see that author did a lot of research when creating his character, which is (sadly) very rare to see. Character is well balanced and what's the most awesome, he actually resembles actual average flegmatic-oriented Slovak, even though creator never met any Slovak before. Account is typical "roleplay ask account", meaning that you'll ask character a question and it will answer it for you.
Though his design (and partially personality, too) was token from a certain Pixiv artist, author draws this character relatively often, and you can see that she knows about this country much more than average Hetalia OC creator. Personality of character is rather cute and sanguine one, and so especially those who love boys half gentleman half crazy will enjoy it. Creator doesn't use DA much though, her "main base" can be found here http://vk.com/public29920279, and it's all written in Russian. A

Being a Christian Manga-ka?Lets face it folks...the topic of Christianity is so unheard of in manga. There are very few "mangas" that solely base there theme towards Christianity. If so, many people believe that it is SO not a manga...just a comic book advertising the Christsian faith just to get you to follow thier religion. I know they're trying to do a good deed and trying to spread God's Word to those who love manga. The cold hard truth though: they're not very good.>__Being a Christian Manga-ka?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Tagged by: :iconKatokushka:
1. Do you like people with unusual appearance (dreadlocks, piercings, colored hair, tattoos)
Umm.. it's just fine with MiChan because it is their own style. MiChan respected that, but NEVER ask MiChan's style to be changed because that's very impolite.
2. Your favorite food and why it is a favorite (can be somewhat)
Anything sweet, spicy, and soup-like are MiChan's most fav food. MiChan actually loves chicken porridge the most.
3. What are your plans for the future: who would you like to be, how many years you want to start a family and so on.
MiChan sees herself living with a simple life, just like what she really wanted. About starting a family? It really depends if there's a good and reliable man out there
4. Do you have any pets, tell about them.
Before, MiChan had 4 dogs and 3 cats, but the four dogs died and one of the cat, too. Now s

Prayer in a Dry SeasonWhy are you cast down, O my soul?Prayer in a Dry Season2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God;
For I shall yet praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.
Occasionally you may experience spiritual dry spells, which can be precipitated by the loss of a loved one, a personal defeat, or any number of adverse circumstances. During those uncomfortable, barren times, it often becomes difficult to pray. God may seem like a vague idea to you than a living reality.
This is not an unusual occurrence. Many heroes of the faith experienced loss of direction and had their faith tested. Even David was afflicted by depressions brought on by treachery, betrayals, adversaries, and his own sins. Persist in prayer. God does not forsake you.
Give ear to my prayer, O God,
And do not hide Yourself from my supplication.
Attend to me, and hear me;
I am restless in my complaint, and moan noisily,
-Psalm 55: 1-2
God, I know there will be times when my faith is tested and I cannot feel you as n

How ya'll been? So recently as you know I've been on a bit of a health kick. Yeah... I slightly broke it (for a month omg) XD But what has my health kick got to do with the topic of this journal? WELL! I was thinking about it today and I've seen so many comments on cosplayer's photos over the years that make me quite upset to see. There are comments like "you're fat", "you're boobs are too small" or "you're ugly". Or even the opposite of "you're too thin", "you're boobs are too big and saggy" or "your face doesn't suit this character". So as you can tell it'll be rather ranty so if you don't wanna read that's ok XD
When I first started cosplaying I got this a couple of times and yes, it hurts. It upsets me to see that people go out of their way to make someone feel bad for all the hard work they've put into a costume. So what image does everyone expect to see when cosplayers' cosplay? They expect them to look exactly like this character they're cosplaying, right? Well

Hello dear readers!
After being on deviantart and other places and making commissions for few years I have gathered quite a bit of experience. I do try to help others with advices if I am asked. It seems to me, that the best thing is to make a journal entry with summarized guidelines for people who make commissions.
I hope you will find this helpful and enjoyable. Read on!
To sell anything (pictures, writing, crafts...etc) you need first to be seen by others. Here how you can make that happen, these all I have observed over the years from others.

Thank you so much to everyone who entered. The variety of entries was better than I could have imagined! I was really amazed by all the creativity. I saw the bra turned into a vest. I saw the neck chain used as a signature weapon. I saw the red drapery turned into skirts and loose, baggy pants. I was amused to notice so many people leaving the boots as they were after I mentioned that I liked them. I saw Leias suited for ballroom dancing, sneaking around dark city streets, firebending, brawling, and just being awesome!
