Ok, so the contest was supposed to end today and I forgot to have a journal about that. I'm going to extend it four another 5 days since I goofed. I will stop accepting entries on the 20th of September!
So its about time I had a contest, no? I have a few more planned, but this one is spur of the moment. It will be a more mature themed contest, aimed a gore and violence. Most contest don't allow things like that, but I take this as a good opportunity for people to practice their skills.
This contest allows both human, animal, and anthro artists!
Draw any of the characters listed below doing something violent. Bar fights, random homicidal rages, it all goes. Doesn't have to be bloody, either. Someone can punch a wall, flip a table, yell at another person. Just someone growling and snarl
COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!Hi guys!! Thank you as always to all watchers and everyone who faves and comments - I'm so sorry I don't have much time these days to reply to everything, but I definitely do read and appreciate them all!COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!
I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^ That said, hope you enjoy! *chu*
Any questions please feel free to ask!

Hello everyone~ After the success of our Icon Contest;
Short Hair TutorialsMorning everyone!Short Hair Tutorials1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've been running around like a bit of a nut this week as we spent the weekend in Canberra working with Australia Tourism. But now I'm back and a little rested I'll be shooting the next set of hair tutorials this week so if you have requests please let me know asap
Also I get daily requests to make tutorials for people with short hair. This is a little easier said than done because obviously I don't have short hair and haven't for many years. I do try to get friends with shorter hair to model but not everyone wants their face plastered all over the internet ^_^
That said I have previously done a series of video tutorials using my awesome friend Stef so there are 5 tutorials on my youtube channel to get you started if you have short hair. I'm going to see if I can get her or another friend to volunteer for photo versions as well so if you have a particular style you want to learn just pop it in the comments too.
Here is a playlist for the short hair tutorials: http:
My Features - vol.1I think that's a good thing feature some artists that I really appreciate, I've recently been positioned in some "art features" and I felt really happy about this because even though it's simple gesture gave me much satisfaction.

I hope I can cheer the artists that I've decided to include in this feature, even if I am not an important person I want to tell you that I admire your work very much, I hope you will pleased to know that I support you.
I would liked to include more arts and artists but at the same time I didn't want exagerate, other features will come in the future!
Sooner or later I will be able to show more things and people...but at the moment take this beautiful things:

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!

Mesti Datang! The HobbyCon 2013 Experience!Earlier this year, my friends and I were invited to be overseas guests for HobbyCon in Sabah, Malaysia.Mesti Datang! The HobbyCon 2013 Experience!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Time flew by very fast, and before we knew it...
Our first day was spent doing a lot of eating, thanks to our guide Alyssa I will justify it as us fueling up for an action-packed weekend! We tried nasi lemak for the first time (LOVED IT), had some shaved ice desserts after, then a big dinner of clay pot rice, stir-fry noodles with clams, really tasty chicken wings, etc. and THEN we still raided Pick N' Pay for our midnight snacks because we love convenience stores and we wanted to try things we don't have in Manila.
We planned our cosplays ahead with Team Kachang Puteh, the guests from Singapore. Our theme for the first day of HobbyCon was Shingeki no Kyojin!

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 wig1 year 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

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:
