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
WHAT TIME IS IT? AAAADVENTURE TIME COSPLAY ...TIMEAdventure Time cosplay at Fantasy Quest 2WHAT TIME IS IT? AAAADVENTURE TIME COSPLAY ...TIME3 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!

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!2 years 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!
Short Hair TutorialsMorning everyone!Short Hair Tutorials2 years 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:

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!1 year 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!

Plugging the VAsHello all,Plugging the VAs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Things are still incredibly busy and hectic over here, in light of which I don't have much time to dedicate towards Honour Amongst Thieves at the moment. Rest assured, we haven't seen the last of the project and the characters around here, but in the meantime, I thought I might tide you over with some "goodies". Each of the characters' VAs are very talented in their own ways, and I thought I'd plug some of their websites for those of you interested in what they do when they're not cussing at pirates or berating heathens.

Sasuke...Chapter 698*SPOILERS***Sasuke...Chapter 6985 months ago in Personal More Like This
The Mangadoom translation was just released, prior to which I sat in painful anticipation as I looked over the Japanese raws half a dozen times. Even not understanding a word of what was being said, the chapter was so clear. Sasuke has finally let go; he's free. There's one panel where Sasuke looks up at the sky, and he is so calm, and relieved as he admits, "I lost." And he couldn't be happier.
I'm still on an emotional high, and slowly mellowing out as I write out all my feeling. So I'll just write things as they come to mind, in no particular order. Is it even necessary to say how happy I am...? This is the best chapter so far, in my opinion, and seeing as we've only got two more to do it might keep that status for me. Because this chapter was -IT- the moment when Naruto finally got through to Sasuke, without talk-no-jutsu, and Sasuke let all of his negative emotion go by finally conceding defeat and acknowledging Naruto as his dear friend. And in case you've been hidin
Historical Disney Princesses FAQRather than answering these individually over and over again, I'm just going to leave this here and add to it as needed:Historical Disney Princesses FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
- I'm not telling you which princess I'm doing next.
- I would appreciate it if you didn't tell me what character I should do next, or what you're looking forward to, or what character you hope I'll do! It's very sweet and I definitely appreciate the sentiment, but consider the fact that you're something like the 400th person to tell me about Elsa, or Anna, or Merida- it's not adding a lot to the conversation.
- No, I'm not doing any Kingdom Hearts characters. There's no particular historical precedent, so they don't really have anything to gain from this series.
Are you going to do Merida?
YES PLEASE STOP ASKING sobsobsob
Are you going to do Elsa and Anna?
Are you going to do any more pieces in this series?
Yes! Let it be assumed that I will continue doing these until stated otherwise.
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!1 year 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:

Can everyone just..Go tell someone you love them.Can everyone just..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Even if it is random & out of the blue.
Even if you feel like a total doofus.
Go tell your friends, family, lover, neighbor, your neighbor's dog, a squirrel.. Go on a love spree.
You never know if it is the last time you'll see them.
If you're fighting with someone, stop. Tell them you love them. You never know if that would be the last time you talk to them.
Make life full of love. Not regrets.
That is all.
Anime KissesSince the past 5 years I have been thinking about something really funny I did and it also makes me feel stupid...When I was at the Fullmetal Alchemist Panel in Anime Expo I had always had a crush on....I believe you can guess from mu username...so I had a plan.''When I go to Anime Expo I will kiss Vic Mignogna''.But of course you always come up with the dumbest things EVER! So when the panel was over of course...Thats when I...The stupid one...KISSED HIM!! I ACTUALLY DID IT!! My friend recorded me but she promised to never share it with no one. I hope that some else tries it and doesn't feel bad.

699 + 700...My Final ReviewWhen I first started writing my impressions of Naruto chapters a few months ago, I was doing it to let off my feels and vent and just have my say. I haven't been doing this long, and yet within my group of watchers many of you look forward to my journal entries. So I'd like to thank each and every one of you for reading and giving me your feedback, crying and spazzing with me. The responded to my last entry were amazing, and I was so in awe I haven't replied to many of them. But know I read every single one with a smile on my face and I'm grateful for the comments I received.699 + 700...My Final Review5 months ago in Personal More Like This
This will be my last review for the main Naruto manga. It's possible I get the inclination to say some words about the new spinoff they will release, but the truth is I'm here because of Naruto and Sasuke...I always have been. I wrote everything I did because of them, and loved the series so much because of them.
I'm very, very tired. After reading 699, and coming off my emotional roller coaster, I felt so drained
How Toph's bloated blob is madeHello watchers <3 You gave me the signs so here I am with this (simple?) guide in how Toph's hair was done.How Toph's bloated blob is made4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Can I also say something unrelated.. I think dA should really upgrade this journal thing with an easy image uploader function? so I don't have to upload in another database and imgsrc every photo in here. After all, having pictures in a journal is one of the few attractions and entitlement to a paid subscriber besides a customize journal, right?
Ok that aside D:
I used many unorthodox ways to do my costumes so hmm.. please don't laugh orz ...
So i bought a straw bowler hat from Daiso (for only SG$2), and then wrapped strips of paper around it until is all covered, like a half sphere but fuglier. Please use black coloured paper. And of course, please buy a hat accordingly to your head proportion. Don't repeat the mistake of making it too big like mine =_=
This is how the underside looks like. I arrowed a wire-comb there because it is how I secured this blob to the main wig late

Please keep an eye out for iPhone cases and related apparel with my paintings on them! Unless they are specifically from my Society 6 shop, they are STOLEN.
