Children's Literature, Morality + Changing IdealsIntroductionChildren's Literature, Morality + Changing Ideals2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
With the invention of the printing press in the fifteenth century, and its gradual integration into society, people at last had access to literature. It was William Caxton who first saw the opportunity to make money by printing and selling those stories and fables hitherto told by word of mouth.
At this time, literature did not have age-specific target audiences. Inevitably, some stories appealed to children more than others. Robin Hood was especially popular, while Aesop’s fables offered entertainment and life lessons to adults and children alike.
It is, of course, impossible to say exactly when and how literature was identified as a useful tool in teaching morality to children. It is speculated that there was no concept of ‘childhood’ before the eighteenth century, although historians debate this, as historians are apt to do.

Reguarding The New DmC: We'll be okay.So... I've been downloading Devil May Cry OSTs And while listening to "I'll be your home" I realized something- About my Rants and Raves towards the new DmC:Reguarding The New DmC: We'll be okay.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's Nothing we can do. Nothing
But thats okay- Because they can't simply come in and take away the Dante, the emotions, the love, the hate, the frustration of being stuck on Vergils last battle and finally screaming "TAKE THAT YOU WHORE!!!!" at the screen at the end of the game!!!! No. They can't.. they can't take what they've already given us.
This new game is much like a cold: All we have to do is lay back, relax and it'll go away.
I can't wait for it to come out- perhaps if not many people enjoy it they may realize how many are outraged.
I complain not. Its a good thing I'm not a Devil...
Because I'm bawling. Crying. Sobbing. All and any derivitives for the tears inside me. To be a nerd and quote the song I'm sobbing to: "The tears inside me calm me down"
Thinking about that reminds me of DMC3's last few cutscenes...

Thusday, 24th May:
I arrived at the Airport in the afternoon and the organization team picked me up from there . The hotel room was directly next to the con. It was still some time till Elffi's plane would arrive, so Christian (organization team member) and I took a walk in a nearby park. I got so distracted by wild DOGS, BIRDS and CATS everywhere *-*! I could pet a cute wild kitty <3 awww~~
The we went to the airport to pick up Elffi. We were standing there pretty long and I got bored and annoyed XD;....so the first thing I did after he came out of the baggage claim room, was kicking his leg and asking why the hell that took so long ;O;~~~
We haven't seen each other since WCS, so that really heartwarming kick was the nicest greeting I could get in mind *LOL*.

Now only one thing.
I CAN DO MAGIC
Ok, I think there are al ot of people who want to know how this water magic was done
I will made Christmas gift for you all and explain it C: Its not that hard as it seems.
When I write Kirana e-mail what she need to take for this shoot, it was something like "You need 1 pound of floor and 10 small balloons. No. 20 are better." So, how it was done? We put water in 2 balloons and Kirana stand still, Ten and Fei pop balloons with needles after mine "1,2,3!!!" and in that second I took photos. Easy and hard at the same time.
I will give few advices. We tried to use stick with needle, but it was too lame. It made only a small hole and water pop out like...well...it wasnt cool at all. So much better do it with hands using some strength. Also its really hard for mode

Introduction about making handmade booksINTRODUCTION ABOUT BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE HANDMADE BOOKSIntroduction about making handmade books1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Today I'd like to share with you some basic tips if you're interested in making handmade books. I've learned how to do that a few terms ago, at the university. As an art restoring adept I've been through the old, traditional ways of making books and added some modern touches to simplify that. I'm going non-professional so far, without expensive equipment, so if you'd like to give books a try you don't have to invest that much
The first and obvious thing that's needed for our book is paper. At that stage you have to decide what kind of book you'd like to make - you need lined or squared paper for notebooks, journals, cookbooks and basically everything that's meant to write in. Sketchbooks and scrapbooks require nice smooth plain paper and photo albums work best with thick and durable paper. Of course those are basics, you can use decorated paper or one suitable for

you need PVC, cutter, colorlake, hot air gun or an oven.
so at first I made pattern and copy them on the PVC
after that you cut them out with the cutter (I swear make some breaks because your hands hurts a lot after that)
then put the part in to the oven and hold them for 20sec.
when you take them out of the oven you have 10sec to bring the in the right form

Cosplay Photoshoot EtiquetteMy good friend hikaraseru has written a very good guide on how a standard cosplay photoshoot should be conducted in a conducive manner. I got her permission to post the entire article up, so hope you guys like what she is presenting to us.Cosplay Photoshoot Etiquette3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Want to plan a cosplay shoot, but somehow things just don't turn out right? Maybe the photos were not how you visualised them, or that the photographer seemed to be extra grumpy, or you just don't know what's going on? Read on for how to get the best out of your cosplay shoot:
The 4 Ps:
Having a plan is essential and should take up the most time overall in your shoot. Speak to the photographers closely, because they will be the ones producing the photos that will be the end result; make sure they are aware of the concept and background of the series you're shooting. Some photographers will want to do their own research prior to the shoot (reading the manga/watching the anime/looking up reference photos) - so make sur
Giveaway, art contest and beta reader!Hey everyone!Giveaway, art contest and beta reader!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
It have been a while since last contest or giveaway now, and the reason for this is the exams I have had lately. I`m finaly finished with them, and they did go very well! But thats the reason for the low activity the last 1-2 months.
Ok, first of, I am planing a giveaway this moment, and I hope to get it started within the next days! And when it have been this long since last one, it need to be big!
Normaly I give around 50 to around 10-20 winners. This time I think I will give 100 to around 20 winners, or 50 to around 40. I also plan to give away a free premium in the same giveaway, but its still under planing.
If you got any ideas for the giveaway, like how it should be done, or what prices I should have, be sure to comment below! If someone wants to take part in the giveaway as donator, be sure to contact me!
What is the fun without a art contest? I dont know.
WIP: Perona from One Piece for Italy :DHello my friends~WIP: Perona from One Piece for Italy :D1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Elffi visited me for 1,5 weeks and we tried to finish as many parts as possible on our ONE PIECE costumes for the "COSPLAY SUMMER PARTY" in Italy where we will be cosplay guests <3.
Well this is my costume so far.....
Well some words about the costume ...
Oh my my I really understand now the troubles that One Piece cosplayers have with their costumes XD. The proportions are really really hard to get for a normal human body. The anime/manga has such a cartoony style that bodies are waaaays out or normal body shapes *laugh*. Also in every scene, every Artwork and every figure Perona's costume looks totally different x.x.....I tried to use the most references from a figure I found. Still I failed a bit the proportion of the skirt T_T...the tips got too pointy and long and the stars are too high ;O;....it was really not easy to get this.

Devil May Cry- Vergil confirmed as Nero's father!http://devilmaycry.org/community/threads/official-incoming-dmc-art-book-reveals-vergil-is-neros-father.15205/Devil May Cry- Vergil confirmed as Nero's father!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So apparently the newest DMC artbook confirms that Nero is Vergil's son, but from what I've been reading in that forum, a lot of plot ideas got mixed around, dropped, or simply unused, plot contradictions and timing contradictions.
I've taken Japanese for three years and although I've forgotten 90% of it, I'm still pretty familiar with the basics and understanding sentence possessives. In the first post when scrolled down to the bottom of it, it shows a picture with Japanese text with two white circles.
The first circle is Nero's name in katakana. The second circle is saying Vergil's with a possessive. So "Baajiru no..." and then something, something in kanji. I can't read kanji so the sentence would have to say something to the affect of using the japanese words for father being "otousan" or "chichi".

I am back with my report about the DESUCON in Oslo (Norway) in June :3.
It was my first time in Norway and I was really excited. I was cosplay guest together with my boyfriend Elffi and my friend KamuiCosplay.
We got picked up and delivered to our wonderful hotel by the really nice con staff. The hotel was directly next to the con (that's sooooo useful for us cosplayers *_* really!). Such a pretty room and OMG that breakfast in the hotel *drools* nomnomnom <3!!!
On the first day, Elffi, Kamui and I had our panels/workshops. I had mine together with Elffi. Our first workshop was about "Cosplay around the world" to give some impressions of the places we already visited. The 2nd one was about Cosplay in general with some advices where to find materials, how to get pretty photos and so on ^^. I still hope people understood our panels XD. Norwegian people are very quiet and
