The Disney Vault- The fucking palace petsHey guys! So I got a lot of stuff pending, the first thing being my 'How to Train Your Dragon?' review which was requested by a fellow follower and my Christian Grey analysis for my 'Fifty Shades of Grey' blog. However, I need to rant about something at the moment because through my 'Disney Princess' research I found something truly horrifying. I was open to give this franchise the benefit of the doubt, but when I stumbled upon this I was absolutely certain that this franchise has reached a new low. I present to you; the Palace Pets.The Disney Vault- The fucking palace pets2 years ago in Personal More Like This
These abominations and crimes against creativity are Disney's answer to 'My Little Pony' and the 'Littlest Pet Shop' success (notice how most of the Palace Pets are ponies). Each of these bastards were carefully constructed to appeal to little girls by adding a shit ton of sparkles, ribbons, tiaras and CUTIE MARKS (I kid you not). The worst part of all of this? a) They talk, b) THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE CANON in the Disney Princess Franchi

Meet Terezka, baby fox with heartbreaking storyHello!Meet Terezka, baby fox with heartbreaking story4 years ago in Personal More Like This
People, I had SO amazing day yesterday!
The weather prognosis was very bad, but finally, the day was sunny and wonderful.
I woke up at 4:30 AM to get to Prague, where I met my friend BlueFox-cz. Together, we travelled to ZOO Děčín, where we saw babies of Máa and Tomáek, two foxes we know very well (BlueFox-cz was the one who took Tomáek to the ZOO in his car. And our friends were those who saved and rised Máa). Kits were cute, but already quite big. We spent few hours in the ZOO, watching baby wild cats, funny squirrels, a running wolf and of course, the foxes.
Then we moved to one wild-preserve. Our friends were given a baby fox!
Myslivci... Well, who are "myslivci"? There is no English tranlastion for this Czech word. Myslivci are Czech hunters, but in fact, they are supposed to CARE for the forest and all the animals. But in the Czech republic, they mostyl have a bad reputation - not because they kill and ea

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

So we went to Toycon last Saturday and as usual I... didn't really get to take pictures of toys and stuff. It was so crowded around the merchandise hall that I couldn't stop and take photos because people were constantly threading through and shoving. It was like a river of people with an actual current, hahah! Sometimes I'd find a friend to chat with but we'd eventually be pulled apart by the tide, it was kind of funny.
I wanted to wear something simple and comfortable so I posted on my Facebook that I would wear my old Ichigo cosplay in his Karakura High uniform. The Bleach manga is so crazy now that it just made me miss the days when Bleach was simple.
I think this is the last decent picture of myself that I have wearing this, and it was taken ages ago.
And here it is on me again, with a new wig, better contact lenses, better wig styling and cosplay makeup skills (somewhat), and Kon plush that was give

sry for being so late with updating you with my latest BIG project.
I'm working on this costume since January and finally I see the end of the long tunnel coming XD.
I wanna show you my now finished Saber Gift Figure armor!

well let's start with the raw armor parts, completely unpainted.
I used WOBLAS FINEST ART as my material. It's a thermoplastic material with a mix out of plastic and wood. It's close to Wonderflex, but thicker, more durable and it's easier to make round shapes l shoulders, knees and chest plates. You can also melt the material together and use it as thermoplastic modeling clay!
This is my VERY first armor and even a bloody begin
The New Profile TabsAs part of an initiative to make deviantART more user-friendly and clearer, tabs on the Profile Page have received a visual and functional uplift!The New Profile Tabs2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The tabs on Profile Pages (Gallery, Prints, Favourites, and Journal) have been visually improved for consistency, cleanliness, and an overall up to date appearance. Navigation elements have been moved to the left column of the page, and the placement of major elements of each tab have been aligned so that the transition from one tab of one's Profile to another is more smooth, natural, and clean.
In addition, when viewing tabs of your own Profile, you can easily add to that tab! The Gallery tab prompts you to submit artwork, the Prints tab prompts you to submit a Print, and the Journal tab prompts you to write a Journal entry!

Don't use those crappy Sculpey or Fimo glosses for your creations. Their expensive as hell, you only get a tiny bit in a jar, and their usually very gloopy and annoying to apply. Do yourself a favour - go to the hardware store and ask for "Varathane". This is found in the paint department with all the wood stainers and such. Make sure you buy the WATERBASED formula, in GLOSS not semi-gloss. This stuff sells for about $7.00 for a 946mL tin and you will not need to buy anymore gloss for a very long time. This stuff works wonders - it may be for wood, but this stuff has IPN technology which means Interpenetrating Polymer Network which means it's going to soak into your clay, adhere well, and make your clay creations damn spiffy looking.

Some thoughts on New Doctor's Eve...Tomorrow (Sunday) the world's going to find out who the next Doctor will be. And with that, a spirited debate that's been going on in fandom will probably wind down for a while:Some thoughts on New Doctor's Eve...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Should we allow for the possibility that the next Doctor could be a woman?"
At this point, almost every aspect of that question has been talked to death elsewhere (including other parts of my own DA page), and I don't want to retread it here (too much). But here's one of the most interesting (and increasingly common) arguments for why it shouldn't happen, and I want to focus on it for a few minutes. I'll quote it the way it was said by one commentator here:
"If you make him a woman you're taking away an amazing role model for young boys. There have always been great female role models in the form of the companions, but the doctor is one of the only role models boys have who uses his wits and heart to get through a situation, not his fists."
I've seen that st
