Journal Entry: Fri Jun 27, 2014, 9:35 AM
EDIT 2:

Just refreshing this as I realized none (Or very few) of my watchers have taken part, it has been almost entirely newcomers! I wondered if maybe this journal had suffered the "Unable to display" thing that has been happening to people lately?

EDIT: Updated rule number 2 so it's clearer.

To celebrate reaching 100 watchers I thought I'd do a giveaway! :iconlachoirplz:


Prizes:


1st place: 500:iconpointsplz:

2nd place: 300:iconpointsplz:

3rd place: 100:iconpointsplz:



I'm also interested in watching some new people myself, so here are the rules:

You must:

1: Watch me or be watching me already.

2: Link to this giveaway via a journal on your profile.

3: Comment on this journal with your best art. I want to find new people I can watch :D

4: Include in your comment someone whose art you love.

5: Fav this journal.


Do all of the above and it could be YOU that gets the points!

In order to make it fair and give everyone a chance, winners will be selected from those that took part using a random number generator.

Results will be on July 31st (A little way off but it gives more people a chance to take part)

Have fun!

Photoworld Asia 2008

Though we still haven't quite finished up our Shippuuden costumes, we wore them to Photoworld Asia just to costrip for the lulz and check out the camera stuff at the event, as well as the cosplayers who were actually competing. Saw a lot of old friends (a lot of whom I delivered a thousand years of pain to, using my kunai) and met new people. There was a relatively small number of participants, but that also gave us a chance to interact with people more. :)

Oh hey, I have a kunai now.

And there was Gibs Gibs05 who was amazing as always.

Suddenly, a Teletubby. :ohnoes: Those things terrify me.

It's baby Naruto! I wish I could've gotten a photo with him but when I finally found him in the crowd, he was sleeping. Awww.

I found ero-sennin, though. We were doing the Jiraiya dance so it came out all blurred. :lol:

Found some Akatsuki that we met during Hero Con. :D Always fun goofing around with these guys. I need to find pictures with Itachi and Tobi (who was a very good boy).

What've you got there, Dei-dei?

We love Markee! He's known for being Man-captor Sakura (Audience Choice winner last AME Gakuensai!), Akazukin Cha Cha-man, and Man-Temari, among many others. :lol:

CHIPPENDALE SASUKE WITH A BOW TIE? My face here pretty much shows what I was thinking at the time, which was "I DUNNO LOL"


photo by Jake Amora kjaex
People were demanding SasuNaru (most of the yells were from our very own Sakura) so we swallowed our pride for just a bit. About two seconds after this photo was taken, Sasuke turned around and pulled of the bow tie. XD


photo by Charmie yaoiangel14
Sakura was happy for the SasuNaru moment and hugged her fellow yaoi fangirl Kat moonlightflight, then suddenly, people started taking pictures of them too. o_O Kat wasn't even cosplaying, haha.

WHY DO YOU MAKE US DO THESE THINGS AND WHY DO WE KEEP GIVING IN

Aaand that's all you're getting. For now.


Additional photos from the Tux Team camera

More from the event, pictures taken by Kat moonlightflight!


Hey, Sasuke. Why are YOU in the center? The series is called NARUTO for a reason.


Posing with Rayshi. :) Hope the pictures turned out okay!


Aww, Sakura-channnn. :lol:


HAAAAADO GEEEEEEEIIIIII NO JUTSU


Please note the sword placement. That HG slays me.


"Naruto, you and Sasuke please?
"Err, okay."
"Could you put your arm on him?"
"...Like this?"


"Good, good. Now how about a kiss?"
"O_o"
"Please?"
"Sasuke... Why are you looking at me like that?"


Everyone settled for a hug, and Sakura was a happy fangirl.


Hey hey, it's Lyron burikiboy! :D


And more of Markee the mage.


We're in your malls, ninja-ing in your halls.


Not such a good idea to try to mug Sasuke, believe me.


Kiks kiksology and his amazing talent at facial expressions.


Why are we doing this again?


I don't understaaaaand. Why do you make us do these things?


Origami lessons with Sakura and Sasuke.


Kat moonlightflight calls this Sakura's Yaoi Paradise of Origami Animals. Sasuke's crane is kissing Sakura's mini-dinosaur, and Rayson's flower... is apparently eating the snake's tail. I don't understand.


Mints with holes are meant to be played with.


After our snack, we went back to the event venue.

OH SHI-


Kakashi-sensei, you're late!


Tuxedo Team Omake!

Kakashi and Sai joined us for dinner, and as always... things got a little crazy. Photos for this section are by Miss Dans littlesailboat. Sorry if parts of our costumes are kinda wonky/missing here. We were more serious about enjoying our food rather than taking proper pictures. XD (We love that place - the food is fantastic and the rooms are lovely but the lighting was a bit tricky. My blue contacts didn't show up as much as they did the last time.)

Oh, and just thought I'd share - when we were being escorted into our room, the kids in the restaurant were looking at us funny, and there was a number who actually recognized us as Naruto characters. There was even this one boy who kept hanging out outside our door (we could see him through the blinds), so we slid it open and said hi and motioned for him to join us if he wanted. He didn't say anything, but took a photo of us with his PSP, showed us the shot and shyly but happily walked away. It was adorable. :blush:


Team 7 and other ninjas (in disguise as normal civilians).


"Naruto... your manners, please."
At least it's not as bad as my food photos from last time. ;p


"Have I surpassed Mangekyou Sharingan yet?"


Rayson sinag-araw, you seriously creep me out.


Suddenly, a ninja! No, it's the Pope!


Naruto cosplay. Anyone can do it.


See, we're all ninjas here.


Yep, definitely to be feared. Ninja-ing: Serious Business.


Hai thar, Sandra Dans.


Uh-oh...
:iconpedobearrun1plz:
:iconpedobearrun2plz:


I should run to save my ass (literally).


Looks like I still fail at cloaking jutsus.


OH SHI-


Bickering with Sai.


Meanwhile, Mr. Emofag was playing with his hair.


You still have duck butt hair, Sasuke.


ZETSUBOU-SENSEI!!!


"I'll die now."


Kiks kiksology documenting Sakura eating that yellow thing on the onigiri plate that according to Rayson, smelled like turtles.


Kiks capturing his own reaction upon eating the turtle-y stuff.


Mmmmm~


OUCH OUCH TOO HOT BUT IT'S SO GOOD


Reaf me arone, I'm eafing.


This is how Kakashi managed to eat.


Sai and his coffee jelly.


Okay okay, leaving you alone now.


Oh, the two are actually getting along? (A little too well, even.)


This is Sakura's "I smell yaoi in the air" face...


...which we all attempted to imitate.


"It's called beer. Be a man and drink up!"


Hoho, drunk Sasuke. [snickers] Just as planned.


I am appeased.


Now it's your turn, Sai. Have some sake.


OIROKE: OTOKO NO KO DOUSHI NO JUTSU!! (Double Knockout Guys Technique!)
But with clothes! And a voyeur Sakura!
This was not the product of our deranged imaginations! The idea came from Kishimoto himself! Look! img183.imageshack.us/img183/43… Do you see Sakura's face there? PURE GENIUS. So many emotions! It does not compute!


We blame this for our behavior that evening.

Thanks for that day, you guys. I definitely needed that break! You crazy people keep me sane. :) For now, it's back to schoolwork for a while!

With Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on the horizon, there's been a lot of animosity directed at Assassin's Creed III. Every YouTube and Facebook comment on any new ACIV: Black Flag teaser release is all about how ACIII was horrible and how Connor was "boring and bland." I'm sure I'm not alone in noticing this.

I have a hard time believing it. Connor was an extremely complex and interesting character and now if any haters out there would just think about his character a little deeper...

On the accusation that Connor is boring and bland:
He was flung into conflict and loss right from the get-go when his village was burned down and he lost his mother in front of his eyes. Yes Ezio did suffer a lot of loss too with the hanging of his family but take into account that Connor was a child. Things that happen during early childhood can have a seriously dramatic effect on the development of a child. Connor grew up without a mother and only a ghost of a father. Achilles was like a father to him but the experience was definitely much more distanced than anything a healthy child would receive.

Also, he's Mohawk. They have a proud culture of respect. I'm not claiming to be an expert on the culture but if everyone would remove themselves from an ethnocentric view, we could begin to better realize the reservation of his speech and reactions. (Another interesting note is that in Mohawk culture, it is taboo to touch a stranger and so that's why he's so rude to Paul Revere and didn't hug Lafayette xD) We can't measure everything on a Euro/American scale of charisma, humanization, humor. He was a respectful, sweet, reserved, and extremely honest person as molded by his culture and upbringing. Just entertain the thought, be more considerate. I don't want everyone to think like me, I would just like for everyone to consider the possibility that there is a greater narrative here.

In the Homestead sequences, with people he knew better and took care of, he was a completely different person. They weren't strangers and he knew they accepted him. He would smile and jest, and react in surprising ways. In fact, his personality and quirks became even stronger given his personality around others.

And as a disclaimer, I love Ezio with all my heart, but we got to spend years and years with him, watching him grow from hunter, to lord and finally to prophet. I miss him dearly but I have found a lot of love in Connor.

Yes. So in my humble opinion, opening my mind, I think Connor is a wonderful character that deserves another look. *cough perhaps another game*

~FAQ~

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 24, 2012, 9:07 AM


This FAQ contains most of the questions, I have been asked a lot, since I started to post my Cross Stitch works.
I also added questions, from my recent poll.
In case you have a question you want me to add, please post it here.

Sections:
1.) My working process
- How I start
- Creation of my patterns
- How I work in general
- My supplies I work with

2.) What I can do for you and what I don´t
- Tips for beginners
- Requesting stuff from me
- Art trades
- Commissions

3.) Remaining questions from in the poll + personal stuff

:bulletred: My way of planing and working on a project :bulletred:

1.) How do you choose the pictures you want to work with and what do you have to consider?

First of all, it´s important for me, to ,,be in the mood" for a cerain project, except when it is a commission.
I prefer stitching pictures of certain series (games, manga or anime) or it happends, that I see a picture here on DA and sometimes I just know that I want to work with it (with permission of the artist of course).
It´s important for me, to improve and so I mostly choose pictures, which will be harder in the making due to a huge amount of details.

While choosing the pictures it´s necessary, to work with Hi-Res images with proper lighting conditions, due to my way of creating my patterns and using the colors.

2.)How do you create your own Cross Stitch patterns and what program do you use?

That´s the most asked question and I´ll have to clear some things up as good as possible.

People are used, to work with Cross Stitch patterns, like/or similar to this one fav.me/d4v3ydq
I have to say, that my patterns aren´t anything like this.
I don´t use a special ,,pattern program" for creating my patterns.
All I use, is a simple ,,Photoshop Elements" version to create a pattern and a program like the ,,GIMP", to open the finished pattern file and work with it.
My patterns are not printable, nor do they contain any ,,grid" or  descriptions for the colors being used.

I do the following, to create a Cross Stitch pattern:
- I decide on the final size of the ,,pattern", considering the amount of pixels in the final picture (let´s say, I want to create a Cross Stitch with the size 19,5cm x 14,5 cm, then I want to get a 150 pix x 110 pix picture in the end).
- I take the picuture, I want to work with and cut it (cut tool), so I can get my prefered size in the end.
- To get my prefered size, I reduce the size of the picture itself and make sure.
- Then, I reduce the colors of the picture and decide on my color palette. I have to do this on my own and choose the colors like I think they would fit (I have a wide range of colors I choose from everytime).
- What´s left, is a tiny, strong pixelized picture which I use, by using the ,,zoom" in GIMP or any other program which supports the zoom.
- I work with the single pixels in the final pic through ,,zooming in". One pixel = one stitch on the Cross Stitch fabric.

Important:
My way of making a pattern is NOT perfect and therefore, I can´t do any Tutorial for this process, since I have to improve a lot and even change/ re-paint parts of the picture myself without the help of Photoshop.
I use these patterns, for over 2 years now and everytime I create something new, I have to use different or even new methods, to create the pattern.
It´s not a simple way, it´s just my way, since I have to admit that I don´t want to use a pattern programm (call me stubborn).
If you wanna use this method, then be willingly to experiment, like I have to be. It takes some time, to learn this and as stated above, even I can learn from every new created pattern :)

People which like to get good patterns out of photos, screenshots and other images can still use a good programm for creating Cross Stitch patterns.
These programms support the function, to tell you which colors you have to use and give you the option, to get a printable version of this picture.

3.)How do you know, which colors you have to use?

Nothing tells me, how to use which colors in a proper manner. I decide that myself and choose the colors, like I think they fit in the picture.
I use several different kinds of brownish, beige and light ,,rose" tones, depending on the picture itself.

5.)How do you work in general?

When I finished my pattern and got everything I need together, I start with using one Cross Stitch thread color, stitching as far as I can go within the frame: i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h…
After that, I try to stitch one important part of the picture, to have an ,,orientation" for later. It´s most often an eye or even both, in case I´m stitching a person: i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h…
Then, I add other colors around the already stitched parts and continue doing so: i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h…
I always finish the part of the picture, which fit´s into the frame fav.me/d4sapzw before I continue to change the position of the frame and stitch the next part of the picture.

6.)What supplies do you use?

I work with these supplies:

- Fabric: 20 count aida ( 20 stitches per inch. Small squares) Pure white.
- Wooden, round frame for Cross Stitching (no stand). Stitching with a frame makes the work more neat and clean. Stitching without a frame, drives that woman here crazy. :nuu:
- Needle (obvious!) It´s no needle for Cross Stitching which is bigger and thicker then normal needles. I use a ,,sewing" needle, to keep my stitches clean.
- Anchor Sticktwist Cross Stitch threads (100% cotton, 8m).
- Scissors
- My Laptop to read the pattern.

:bulletred:What I can do for you and what I don´t :bulletred:

1.)I´m totally new to this, do you have any tips for me?

If someone sends me a message and asks for tips and tricks, I glady help out as good as I can.
I can give you tips on how to start, how to handle the whole thing and how to make your works looks more clean and neat. If you send me your pattern, I´ll tell you how an where to start and what to consider.

2.)Can you say something to help me to improve?

Yes, be willingly to work on your abilities. Find out how patient you can be and how far you can go in creating bigger, more realistic works.
Start doing bigger projects, after making some expieriences with smaller ones. Learn how to use the Cross Stitch colors without any help and be happy to try out new things on your own.
Learn it, by doing!

3.)Make me a pattern! I send you the image and my E-Mail adress!

Short answer to this: No.
Long answer: I don´t do any pattern requests, simply because I don´t have the time for that.

I also don´t do payed Cross Stitch pattern Commissions at the moment.

4.)I want the *insert name of finished Cross Stitch work here* pattern, send me!

Personal and especially commissioned works, shall stay ,,unique" and therefore, I don´t give out any patterns, sorry.

5.)List the colors you used for *insert name of finished Cross Stitch here*

Everyone has the right, to keep secrets. That´s one of mine ;)

6.)I want one of your works but don´t have money, how about an Art trade?

I´m currently not open for any art trades because, I have commission work to do.
In case I will be open for art trades, I´ll inform you in my journal.
But, in the meantime, you can send me a message and ask for an art trade and we can talk about one for later. :la:

7.)Do you do commissions?

Yes, I do.
I´m currently closed for commissions, but will inform you in my journal, when I´m open again.

8.)Do you also do commissions, using other colors then your ,,sepia" tones?

Not at the moment, no.
I may offer other toned commissions, at the end of the year, but only in ,,monochrome" style.
The reason for that is simply, that know how these tones ,,work with each other" and how to use them in a proper way.
I´m not a fan of working on full colored, photo-realistic pictures. I don´t say, they aren´t good. In fact I love them, but it´s just not what I´m doing, not even for money. It´s not my style.

9.)Is there anything that you won't cross-stitch (nudes, etc)?

Technically, I´m open for a wide range of motives, when it comes to commissions. I don´t have any problem, with stitching more ,,adult" stuff as long, as it doesn´t ,,steps over a certain line" (nothing ,,pervert"). Although I wouldn´t stitch any motive, which belongs to another artist and from which I don´t have the permission, to use his/her work.

10.)Your stuff is to expensive! It´s just a Cross Stitch!

Say that again, dear.....:iconkillitplz:

People might think, I sit here, one or two hours a day and maybe two times a week to finish a work. Wrong.
I work several hours a day, mostly in the evening, on a Cross Stitch. It may be, that I work 5-6 hours a day for 3 weeks, to get a really detailed picture done.
My commissioners get the best I can do and without sounding snooty I have to say, you get clean and proper work which is unique in it´s own way.
In case it´s to much money for you, you´re free to think that, but telling me ,,how expensive my works are", is sort of insulting and you should be aware of that.
It´s not very polite. :iconnownowplz:

:bulletred:Remaining questions : personal stuff and questions from in the poll :bulletred:

1.) Since when do you do Cross Stitching?

I started with Cross Stitching at the age of 14 and continued unitl I was 16. I quit due to the lack of time back then.
First time, I took a needle again was in 2009, when I worked on several smaller pics (mostly Cross Stitch works, based on game sprites).
In the beginning of 2010, I had the wish, to create something bigger and more realistic and so I worked on a method of creating ,,photo-realistic" Cross Stitch patterns and in the end, this work fav.me/d2n7zvp was the result of my very first try. Until then, I worked hard on my method of creating Cross Stitch patterns on my own and use the colors in a proper manner.

2.)Did someone taught you how to do, what you do?

Cross Stitching itself became a subject in school when I was 14. The way of teaching it was like:
,,Next week, you buy everything you need for Cross Stitching".
And the next week:
,,I show you how to make a Cross on the fabric"...............,,Got it? Beginn"!
So, under the line, I´m self taught all the way :icononioncleanplz:

3.)Are you an patient person?

In most of the cases.....no :XD: I can be impatient like a little child, in case I´m really looking forward to something.
People ask me this question, related to my works and how I can finish one big project after another.
The thing is, that I love what I´m doing. I love Cross Stitching and I even found out, that I can´t be 3 days in a row without it :D

4.) Do you listen to music, while working on your Cross Stitch projects? And if so, which kind?

I couldn´t live without music, so yes I listen to music a lot, while working :la:
I´m a fan of japanese Pop and Rock, especially the music of ,,Gackt" and ,,Rookiez is Punk´D".
Furthermore, I love to listen to several Soundtracks from games or animes. I don´t have a straight music taste and so, I may like several genres of music from different artists.

5.) Who´s your favorite artist?

I can´t name any of the great artists in history, since I´m not that much into this.
If you want to know the artists, which are here on DA, I have to say there are several :D
My a few of my favortis artists are: jinx-starDahliekaSyrkelltincek-marincekShonnaWhiteK-Koji.....and many more :XD:

6.)What sort of emotions do you like art, to bring up to you?

Art, especially art from the artists I like and adore, make me happy. I love to look though their galleries and adore their style and talent. I have deep respect for artists, which work hard to create awesome works and especially those which are still at a young age.

NO SERIOUSLY STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP!!!!!!

Obito turned into a Shuffle-Blitz Zombie. Kages got 1-shotted, kakashi is still nowhere to be seen and Gai, Lee & Bee turned up for the first time in months. 
Oh...

And Juubi pulled a 'Dat Ass' Face

Rather funny if I do say so myself.

And still everyone is left thinking.

How the fuck...Actually what the fuck is happening...and why ain't he dead yet?!

Alright pretty crazy chapter right there....

yep



.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Mind you he is having one hell of an episode right now....

I bet he feeling like he just took a 1 megaton of weed right now...

and these lyrics keep rolling in his head.



That and his brain happens to have degraded to an I.Q of 1 


.
.
.
.
.
.
.
and now sports a fucking creepy-as-white-dog-shit-floating glare.. that would probs make Pewdiepie crap his pants.....


.
.
.
.
.
.
.

And while this is happening

Everyone and Hashi's mum are saying...

.
.
.
.
.
.
.
And here's Nardo saying how cool everyone's jutsu is.
Why ?? Because he can...

Just like this Super Corgi.



 
Look at that take off.

Anddd Madara is still there smiling like a retard...

(I seriously need to make an Edit of that...)

Then comes out with 

"oh I better get off my arse otherwise the zombie-brat is gonna beat me..."

And we all know Madara doesn't like losing right?

Hey guys! I know I really suck at making my journals interesting XD But I'm not giving up. Here we go for one of my journals again!
As some of you probably have seen, I recently posted a photo of my Naruto Ryujinki cosplay to my gallery. I have finished making the cosplay not so long ago, but I still think I need to fix some things so it doesn't break during a convention.
In my Gallery :
NARUTO - Ryujinki / Dragon Blade Cosplay by TessaCrownster Naruto Ryujinki / Dragon Blade Cosplay (part 2) by TessaCrownster My world - Naruto Ryujinki / Dragon Blade cosplay by TessaCrownster
Oh well, here are behind the scenes! Enjoy~ :


Climbsmallryujinki by TessaCrownster
This was the very first picture! I was climbing up the mountain, and it was tricky because there were many insects and spiky plants. My poor Ninja shoes went through a lot.
Myworldryujinki by TessaCrownster

This is a picture where I can see the view on Genova Italy (where I live). I thought it was a really cool view, and I added a "Fish eye" effect to the photo to make it seem even more like as if I were looking down at the world! I really like this one so I might even post it later in my gallery!~
Ryujinkisleep by TessaCrownster
It was really hot! And we needed to take a brake. So me and my dad climbed up another hill (where my ninja shoes also suffered) to stop and look at the view before heading home for lunch.

Ryujinkiblade by TessaCrownster
To bad I had the sun and wind in my face, it was hard to see, therefore I look expressionless in the photo xD
Ufo by TessaCrownster
In many pictures I saw later that this weird orb was present. At first I thought it was a bug or dirt on the lens. But if it were dirt it would appear on the same locations in other photos xD I even sent the picture to a website that talks about UFO's, to see if they thought it was real or not. Because there have been many stories about UFO's being seen over the  city where I live. 
My picture even got posted on their website :www.ufosightingsdaily.com/2013… I guess that naruto is famous for seeing an UFO now lol.

Cardrive by TessaCrownster
Me in the car, on my way home! Don't I look like a fluffy doggy hanging out of the car window? haha all I need to do is stick out my tongue, and perfect.

Arm pouch and back pouch!
Narutodragonblade by TessaCrownster

Dragon blade! (Which broke when I was climbing up a rock. So i'll have to fix it again... D: )
Narutoryujinkifinal by TessaCrownster

A picture I took near my home, to see the final result of the cosplay before going out to do the photoshoot!







I hope you enjoyed !!
