-Cosplay Bullying PSA-As of recent I have noticed a continuing trend of cosplayers who deem themselves "professionals" bullying other cosplayers. They throw out demeaning insults like, "your cosplays suck", "your not a real cosplayer because you bought your costume items and didnt make them", "your too fat for that", "your not the right race/color for that", "your not good at making props, you should give up", "your not allowed to create your own versions of characters", "your not on my level" & "I'm so much better than you"....-Cosplay Bullying PSA-2 years ago in Personal More Like This
All I can say is that this has to stop. This is wrong. Since when did having fun, letting go and enjoying "make believe costume time" become such a horrendous, hateful, drama-filled competition? What gives people the right to bash other people, or to tell them they are "doing make believe wrong"? When did the egos become so unbelievably huge??
Cosplaying is supposed to be about having fun, about being someone else, about creating something awesome and showcasing what you Made. W
R.I.P Kiki HavivyKiki Havivy - Two Years of Never Backing DownR.I.P Kiki Havivy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As many of you may be aware, Kiki Havivy, an incredibly brave little girl that has been in the lives of pony fans throughout the fandom for almost two years now, passed away yesterday after a long struggle with cancer. Tara Strong broke the heartbreaking news yesterday and the community has responded strongly with condolences and other wonderful gestures. The family has responded, thanking the community.
I personally didn't know about this until this morning. News of a death is never easy to take, and its devastating when it's about someone so young and loved by many.
Riposa in pace Kiki, you were strong, and an inspiration to tons of people out there. Thank you.

► Can I purchase your work to turn it into a mold for resin, clay, etc?
--- NO! D: Giant, giant, huge flashing no here. I will never allow my works to be duplicated in such a way. If you've seen molds out there of my work please alert me so I can handle it. I like to keep creative control over all my sculpts, so as of now there is no instance I would allow a mold to be made from one of my creations. Sorry about that.
► What kind of clay do you use?
--- I use polymer clay, it's an oven baked clay that hardens at 275°F (130°C), so you do

Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone!Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com

Don't tell someone how to create their OCs and FCs when the only reason you're doing so is to satiate your SJW bullshit.
If someone makes a white character, it doesn't mean they're racist. They don't have to make a character black or Asian or whatever to prove to all you piss-baby SJWs that they aren't racist. Similarly, they don't HAVE to make their character a female if they don't want to. If someone makes mostly or all male OCs, let them. If someone wants to make male fan characters, it is no reason for crazy fantards to act as though they're being unfair to women because they're not "adding more diversity" to the collection of FCs for said fandom. It has nothing to do with being sexist.
I prefer to make male characters. I have nothing against female characters and

Uh so uh.. *still nervous* when shisukoisa and I've held wigstyling panels at conventions I've always brought up this that I'm about to bring up now. How to make a clip-on wig look 'real', or moreso. (This also applies to wigs with only one ponytail)
Here we go.
First of all the basic short wig, you guys know this step xD
Then take the part from the top of the wig to your ear and drag it back.

Things I wish Comics Would Stop Doing Part 2Transparent Sound FXThings I wish Comics Would Stop Doing Part 21 year ago in Personal More Like This
This one is kinda less known but it bothers me a lot. I understand WHY it's being done (it allows them to have a big sound effect over the artwork and not miss out on too much of the art itself), but I just can't stand the way it looks. It feels cluttered and has little to no impact in my opinion.
So side note: I've been getting a bunch of death threats lately. Got at least 2 e-mailed to me yesterday and one sent to my DA note box today. Dunno if they're all the same person, or if they're just trolls, or if they're just people who don't realize that threatening someone with death is wrong but... yeah...
Lesson learned: Never stand up for women's rights because anonymous people on the internt will want to murder you for your opinions...

You are important.
And don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
On those days - the ones where you can't even cry because you've used up all the tears - just try to stop and think. Think about the people who do love you. Who do care for you so much that if anything happened to you, they wouldn't know what to do.
I just want to write this somewhere for people to see because goddammit, I know. I know how it feels to feel like you're in a constant black hole. I still do. And I have been for too long now.
But I will not give in because I know deep in my heart, someday it's going to get better.
If anyone ever needs to talk, I'll be here. It may take a couple of days to respond, but I'll try.
And why am I posting this?
Let's just say that something happened today and I felt compelled to reach out because I know that even a few words on a screen can make all the more difference in a person's life.
Rape Is Not FlatteringI've done a couple rants on rape before, but I have an urge to do another. First of all, what I want to say is that using "rape" as a way to turn someone on or try to "get your mack on" is a really, REALLY shitty and immature way to do it. For example...Rape Is Not Flattering4 days ago in Personal More Like This
"Come on over here girl, you're hot enough to rape.~"
"If you were just a little bit chubbier, I'd rape you." (I have been told this.)
"You're just so...rape-able!"
"If you wore that dress around me, I'd rape you."
No. No, no, no, stop. You self-entitled piece of shit. If all you can say to someone is how much you want to rape them, you're nothing but a disgusting, childish, boorish prick and I want nothing to do with you. It's one thing to make rape jokes and it's one thing to talk about rape in a disrespectful way and not look at it like the horrible crime it is, but if you honestly think using it as a way to pick up chicks (or dudes) makes you seem edgy or cool and suave, you need to reevaluate your thoughts a little bit and fix you

I remember how hurtful it was and how much I wanted to just dissapear from it all. I felt helpless and hopeless.
The internet can be a terrible place.
When people aren't accountable for what they say they feel a certain sense of power. The ability to judge others without being judged ourselves is a position of immense dominance. It's exhilarating to exercise that dominance over another person.
But now, looking back, I realize that it doesn't bother me anymore. I don't even bother hiding, deleting or responding to those comments because it just doesn't bug me. I feel a resounding "eh",
I keep those comments up so that people can see the kind of behaviour that people reduce themselves to when they're behind a computer screen. Every "this is shit" or ""he" is just a dyke and a "she"" has meaning to me now. It means that I've overcome something that I never would have thought possible. I'm not hu

- 100% pure acetone (found in the beauty supply sections) make sure it's colorless, and cotton swabs. I used to use Windsor & Newton Brush cleaner, which worked okay, but acetone is less expensive and wiped everything off easier. Do not allow it to drip onto hard plastics (such as the body) as it will melt the plastic and release fumes.
- Cling wrap, painter's tape, and masking tape; these are for wrapping your doll's hair and body to protect it from being sprayed with sealant or getting scratched/dirty. If sealant sprays onto the dolls hair, the hair becomes coated in dried, white, sealant that is difficult to remove.

Make sure that you travel light. Try and fit everything you can in as small a space as possible to avoid having to pay for excess luggage. Even if you don't fly, getting around an unfamiliar city with piles of luggage will just complicate things. If the con is local, you can probably afford to have more stuff on your table. But if the con is far away, or you need to take a plane or bus, it's probably best to try and pack as light as you can while still having as much inventory as you can manage.

I want to explain something about the ASL word for abortion.
Yes, yes... it's true that some Deaf people sign that way. But, it's really depend on where Deaf people live in a region or state. Those signs are like voice accents, so I sign just different from others. Here's what I mostly sign: http://www.aslpro.com/cgi-bin/aslpro/aslpro.cgi
First, select "A", and then, select "abort". You'll see how the man sign "abortion".
Also, there is an another similar sign for abortion, which I am still not able to find. It's just like you remove the baby off of your womb. From those sites, see above-- to use the same sign you already see-- to close your hand and to touch on your belly with your fist hand, move your hand while your fingers spread out as if you throw something.

All my t-shirt's prints (Alpha!Dave, Dark!Rose, Default!Rose, Karkat, Roxy, Kanaya) are made with T-shirt transfer paper. Basically it works this way: first you make the print with computer, then print it (to transfer paper), cut the print from the paper and iron it to your t-shirt. Easy as it can be.
