After serveral requests, I decided to upload a tutorial for my absinthe corset today. As you can see I used the same pattern for my steampunk corset dress Mademoiselle Émeraude Steam.
This tutorial shows an elaborate corset. Patterns can be found on the Internet at Burda / Simplicity or even online shops about historical patterns and corsets.
Many steps can be used for a simple corsage. The steps
My deviantART StoryHAPPY BIRTHDAY DEVIANTART!!!!My deviantART Story3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
DeviantART is a really important part of my life and it's been like that for several years now, so... how could I not take part to this lovely community event?
Here's my deviantART Story!
I first heard of deviantART 8 or 9 years ago, from my High-school friend Noemi (unfortunately she's not active on this site anymore). We were in the school newspaper and we were chatting about art and manga and she told me about a cool internet community where people from all over the world could share their art with others.
She showed me the site and I immediately signed up.
I was really sorry to see that my nickname was already taken (my REAL nickname is Eren, not Eeren, I just added another E at the front because I thought that since my real name starts with "E" I could have just doubled it. And, NO, my name doesn't come from Shingeki No Kyojin ;D), but that didn't stop me from creating an account.

Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-upBasic Information:Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As said before: English is not my native language. I'm sorry for every mistake I made while writing. I'm just showing you what works for me. This is a "you can" tutorial and not "you must". I hope this gives you a basic idea on how I do it and helps you as well. I will not show you any brands of make-up I work with since they are different from country to country. I'm not a dermatologist or a professional make-up artist, so I can't give you tips for "problem skin" cases like acne and so on. Please consult a doctor and let them give you tips for what's best to use before buying something randomly
If you don't know what make-up to use out of the hilarious amount of available products in stores ask a vendor in the store of your choice. They will help you.
This tutorial will be the base for every upcoming make-up related tutorial I will post in the future.
First of all I clean my skin and apply vanishing crème. It's always good to do so

Socially AwkwardI like the internet, but I acknowledge that it's not perfect. The ability for everyone to be the invisible man allows for a lot of injustice, bullying, harassment, and stalking to take place. This is slowly starting to change, however, thanks to every website gradually forcing people to link to their facebook (or other social media equivalent) accounts. No one wants to lose their personal social outlets as a result of the stuff they were doing elsewhere on the web, if you know what I mean. But... with all good things there are some bad things.Socially Awkward1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don't know if it's just me, but I'm getting really creeped out how by how much everything is getting connected these days. Nearly every website asks me to post about stuff on facebook or twitter or reddit or whatever. Many websites don't even have personal accounts anymore and just have you link your social media accounts instead. And all of them want to update everyone on your every move 24/7.
And that's what's bothering me. I don't want every
the truth about me.Confession-the truth about me.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
A fear years ago I stopped submitting my work to publishers. I just got tired of hearing my work was not good enough or that I was not what they were looking for or hearing nothing at all. I'm not telling people to not submit, I myself just got worn down by never hearing anything positive.
I had stories in my head to tell. Ideas forming and building and dreams that were very very big. So instead of giving up hoping that someone else would make my stories reality, I decided to do it myself. I had nothing to loose and everything to gain. I still believe that.
That's not to say I would sign, if someone wanted my work and if the deal was right I would do it. Yet, those opportunities have never arisen. I am not too worried about it though. I've always had to figure it all my own, to learn everything about creating, publishing, distribution and marketing. To make mistakes, fail and get back up. The road of a self-publisher is a hard one.
There are many many long hours

sry for being super late with my reports! There still will be a report about the convention in Finland as fast as possible. But first a report about my latest cosplay travel to Hungary !
I was very happy to be invited as guest for the convention "COSPLAYER EXPO" in Budapest.
There, we were judges for the cosplay competition (categories: craftmanship solo, craftsmanship group, performance, EuroCosplay). It took us nearly the complete day to judge. Sadly my panel about ECG and WCS had to be canceled, coz there was not enough time anymore after the cosplay competitions.
I took some photos during the contest while judging XD;...sadly there was not enough time for real shooting with the country's cospalyers. I still hope you enjoy the stage photos...

Cats and Cacti Craft Feature What do cats and cacti have to do with each other? Absolutely nothing, until last week. Months ago I found a tiny cactus in my garden (tinier than my pinky finger's nail), I planted it in a small pot and took care of it. It was perfectly fine and healthy, until one of my cats, Lili, decided that she hated it and it needed to die. From that moment, no matter where I put the little cactus, she would find it and drop it, depot it and scarce the soil until the roots were naked. I know it's the cactus, because she's never done that with any other plants, pots or objects.Cats and Cacti Craft Feature6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
With that random story in mind, and in the memory of my little cactus, here's a feature of crafted cats and cacti. Spot the cactus cake! Also, I really want a cactus pin cushion now what a great idea!
