Upcoming Conventions and important note!Edit 7/17/2913: My subscription is up, so the notification I had on my profile has been removed because it was an extra widget. So instead I'll post it here!Upcoming Conventions and important note!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just want to let you guys know that since I work full time and am pretty busy outside of work as well, I don't get online much anymore. I'll usually look at comments posted on new photos for few days after they've been uploaded, and I'll occasionally go through my notes, but anything more than that is a bit overwhelming for me to keep up with.
Anytime I post a new costume, I try to give as much detailed info as I can, so if you have a costume construction question, just look through those photos and I'm sure you'll find it! If you still can't find an answer, send me a note, though it might be a while before I get to it.
One of my jobs at Arda is to answer wig questions, so I'm usually not motivated to answer the same kinds of questions when I'm off the clock as well. XD If it's a wig question, feel free to shoot me
Midlands 2012 - Skyward Sword Photo DumpMidlandsMidlands 2012 - Skyward Sword Photo Dump3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ended up pulling an all nighter to get everything finished as per usual
Despite working on the costumes for a good 2 months oTL
But I'm really happy with the end result - all four costumes actually looked good for once!
/the fourth originally intended as part of our skit and thus has not been used yet
Arrived early with PlummerC1 , Zombi-zone and Cameron and met up with kagen-no-tsuki
As it turned out we weren't able to get two of the costumes finished in time for our skit
which was really unfortunate - but hopefully in the future we'll have them finished <3
We headed over mid afternoon and modified our entry and ended up rushing to queue up
/we skipped prejudging since we'd still like to do our original skit at some point
A video of our skit can be found here courtesy of Holly =]
Ciaran and I both found it really hard not to laugh at Cameron when he came on stage
Internet Etiquette (Edited with critique advice)Some people brought up some pretty important points, so I've added some additional information about critiques below!Internet Etiquette (Edited with critique advice)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Something that's been bugging me a bit lately is how the DA community has sorta changed over the years (and not in a good way). People are more bold and will post whatever's on their mind, and while that can be a good thing in some scenarios, I feel that people oftentimes say things that they might not realize will hurt someone's feelings.
I generally get a lot of positive feedback, and it really helps! It's always great to know that someone likes my work, and it keeps me motivated to keep going with this hobby. However, I'm still a human being, and negative criticism can hurt me just as much as anyone else. I'm not sure what it is, but the amount of really negative comments has increased these past couple years, and it really discourages me from even using this website anymore. Many times I've considered just disabling comments entirely, but I feel that would
FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weaponEdit: Many of you asked for a transformation vid. So, I made this video clip. Enjoy!FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weapon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my former journal I asked if you would like for me to explain how my Starseeker weapon was made. Since there were quite some people that would like me to do so, I decided to make this FAQ journal. So, I hope I'l answer some questions you might have about this curious weapon and I hope I can explain it well enough for you all to understand.
Note that I made the weapon a couple of months ago and I don't remember everything very clear of the making of it. But, I'll do my best.
So, first things first: The Starseeker
Serah's weapon is quite the interesting one. This because it's a transformable one just like her sister's, Lightning. Nonetheless, it's a transformable one from bow to blade, which original form is none other than the cute moogle companion, Mog.
Of course, Final Fantasy is all about 'Fantasy', so making an exact workin

I was again cosplay guest in MEXICO CITY last December and here is my report!
The con was LA MOLE COMIC CON. The conventions I visit are usually more Anime/Manga oriented and it was my first experience with a more comic oriented convention. So I also did my first comic costume!
On Friday I visited the con as Siesta 45 from Umineko no naku koro ni :3. I had my own little booth where you coud buy prints, talk to me and make photos together.
I was guest together with 4 other amazing cosplay artists!

FAQ Post!Hello, both old and new subscribers or lurkers!FAQ Post!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't get online a whole lot these days besides checking my facebook and occasionally uploading photos on here and tumblr. I used to be pretty hooked on DA between late High School and early College days, but it just became more difficult to keep up as my workload increased. I graduated college, but I now work a full-time job and just have evenings and weekends to relax and work on my hobbies. I do social networking for my job, so I'm generally not in the mood to do my own social networking when I go home. XD Cosplay is a wonderful hobby, but there have been times when it took a toll on my health. I am prone to anxiety and stress, and too much of it causes migraines or makes me sick. I've had to change a lot of things about my lifestyle; besides a lot of online inactivity, I stopped focusing on my personal Youtube channel, stopped competing in contests, stopped setting deadlines for costumes, started making less (but high

Rant.I need to get this out of my system, granted that if I don't; it would just worsen over time.Rant.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Using proper capitalization and punctuation just to show how serious I am.
Firstly, I want to begin with the importance of sourcing art (This isn't the main topic, but I want to sort out a few things). Posting art on tumblr, Facebook, or any website photo-based WITHOUT a source counts as "claiming it as your own". You may or may not intend to claim the artwork, however, either way it counts as stealing. The artist puts a lot of effort into their drawings, and certainly will not be pleased with seeing their proud works going un-sourced and unappreciated.
Secondly, though I do not expect everyone to like my art, I at least want decent feedback. For instance, straightforwardly insulting one's art is ignorant to the ninth degree. Just because someone has a specific art-style that you're not fond of,

This is a picture of me playing the Nintendo Wii, I love my Wii. Had lots of great times on it playing games like Smash Brothers and Mario Kart and Twilight Princess, and a game I really loved called Super Mario Galaxy. The story takes place around 2009? A couple of years after the Wii came out. So one day a friend of mine Matt messaged me telling me he got a Wii, I thought great, about time he got a Wii. So I congratulated him, then he asked the question. :I He asked whether he can borrow some games and I was like 'HMMMMMMMM SHIT'. Well Matt is a nice guy, pretty honest and pretty generous. I usually am pretty generous too but when it comes to games, I hate lending it out

I don't own Hetalia! Just this plot
You and your best friend, Alfred, were going to a concert which his favorite band was playing.
Well you weren't going willingly, you were being dragged. He told you he wanted you to go because all his other friends were boring, unlike you, which you thought was ironic since you were such a quiet, awkward, book worm, nerd. You wore these glasses that Alfred teased you about them being "hipster glasses", but you really just liked them because they were good for reading.
You were in your room, ready for the concert. You wore a slouchy black knit cardigan, a union flag spaghetti strap tank top, dark blue mid-thigh distressed shorts, and black ankle combat boots with spikes at the ankles. You put on your dangling spike earrings and fix your very long wavy, (hair color) hair. You applied a small amount of black eyeliner and mascara, so you wouldn't look too bare, besides it was a rock co

Sorry to bother you...Hello all,Sorry to bother you...1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I thought I'd take a moment today to write a journal which is probably long overdue. I believe there is a common misconception floating around that CVs are so busy, that when you send us DD Suggestions, or other messages, you are being a bother.
Quite regularly the DD Suggestions I receive start with something along the lines of "I am sorry to bother you..." or "I know you are busy but.."
I'd like to assure you all that no suggestions you send, or any other type of contact made with me (or any other CV for that matter) is something to feel sorry or bad about (unless you are legitimately harassing us or something).
I've often heard community members talk about how many notes CVs get daily (often this number appears to be near 100) and I feel the need to say that this is very far from the truth. On average I receive maybe 5 notes a day. On a slow day I may not get any at all and on a busy day I may get up to 10. While I can not speak

I got a new Paypal: Joker@bofus.org For those who are getting commissions from me: First off, I think I am going to change up something here. Because there's a lot of people just sitting on the commission list, I'd hate to make ppl that are ready to get their art sooner, wait behind ppl that are not paying at all yet. So, I'm going to go by the order of whoever pays first, gets their art first. Whether you ordered first or not. I think this method will help clear the chaos that I'm kind of falling into with so many people. I'm really getting unorganized! AH. Anyways, I still have to reply to some notes, but I honestly keep getting new notes that cover over older notes. It's getting hard to keep track. I'll keep trying, but I'm sorry for the slow responses! There's been an explosion of people

I swear, these are the most dramatic, fighty rats I've ever had. Now all 3 of them are in their own cages for various reasons. Ugh! Now I have to find time to get all 3 out individually every day... cuz I totally have all sorts of time for that just lying around... why you gotta be so complicated, ratties?! Anyone in southern california want to adopt a single rat? The one I want to adopt out (a big fluffy blue dumbo) is really sweet to people, but plays badly with other rats. He is the drama causer, and needs to just be a single rat. Seriously, if anyone is interested, please message me for more info.

Structure and Design
• If you are writing a short story, does your story begin at the moment of maximum tension and end at the most aesthetically satisfying place?
• If you are writing a short story, is the conflict immediately clear? Does the conflict generate some essential change in the characters or their situations?
• For longer prose, how much explanation is in the beginning? Too much? Too little?
• Are your sentences of appropriate length - is there variety, or are there too many choppy/run-on sentences and if so do they serve a particular purpose?
• Have you clearly differentiated each of your main characters and their primary goals?
• Do they each have a personality of their own?
• Are all of your characters essential? Are there too many or too few?
