AWESOME ART.First time in a long time since I did a feature. But THIS month, I'll do every day, a feature. There's LOADS of art, that in my opinion deserve to be seen. So if you have any suggestions, leave a message/or a note, and I'll consider it. Today there's no specific theme, but there's the ONLY feature without a specific theme. I have some great ideas.

Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on HalloweenArt By :iconraggedy-annedroid:Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on Halloween2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it is Halloween. I am a cosplayer. Here it is, the greatest of all dress up holidays! And I am always disappointed. Here are the top 5 reasons it sucks to be a cosplayer at Halloween.
1) Friends (including friends of friends) come out of nowhere to ask for costumes. They just ask for a little help. On their giant full body armor masterpiece. The week before Halloween. Because you know, you make costumes and it's easy for you. And the price? Well, it's "for a friend" price. Which is always "free" or "I'll pay you $20 never" which boils down to "get you a shot of Jack sometime." Sadface.
2) Costumes in my closet everywhere, but none for Halloween. Yes, I have over 60 costumes. No, none of them will ever be recognized at a Halloween party. One year I dressed as Pris from Blade Runner out on the town, which I thought would b

A Killjoy Christmas PoemA Killjoy Christmas Poem1 year ago in Personal More Like This
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and in the first Zone,
A little red Killjoy was headed for home.
His sled was a Trans Am with sand-crusted tires,
And a sleek gleaming hood with a spindly spider.
The windows were down, and the radio blared,
And a chill winter wind whipped the frost through his hair.
The Trans slightly swerved on the ice-covered road,
Leaving slushy brown tracks in the powdery snow.
In the trunk of the car sat a small leather bag,
Covered in stitches, old patches, and tags.
Heavy lumps shifted beneath the worn leather,
Clanking and chilling in the icy cold weather.
Inside the dark kitchen, with a rusty steel grill,
Kobra curled up on a mattress to ward off the chill.
With a glowing orange heater that hummed on the floor,
And a heavy blue blanket that warmed him to the core.
Ghoul was sprawled out in the cramped storage room,
Squeezed in with the buckets, the towels, and brooms.
His mouth hung wide open, and he let out a snore,

Summer is coming up, and now that you'll (hopefully) have some time to yourself, it's a great time to polish your writing skills. A good way to start is keeping a journal. Here are 31 MCR-related journal entries, one for each day of the month. Instead of the usual "fave song, fave member" prompts, I tried to make them a little interesting. If you actually do this, feel free to post them on DeviantART, Tumblr, etc. (If you want to print this, you can copy and paste it into a Word document and print it from there.)

This is the best Hetalia game I watched on YouTube (and also played...XD), And the first too.
I really enjoied it, even if the author didn't continue it....(I'm still waiting the 17 2/2 part)

The background story is amazing and yet so complicated... Even if the game starts in a really simple way...
"All the Nation who Entered the Mansion have to escape from there."

Calla lily, carnation, daisy
Silently chase away your worries
Become your shield whenever you fall asleep
I cried out
Please don’t leave me behind, leave me behind
So you held me tight
And said I will be just fine, I will be just fine, I will be just fine
Petals dance for our valediction
And synchronize to your frozen pulsation
Take me to where your soul may live in peace
Touch of your skin sympathetically brushed against
The shoulders you used to embrace
Sparkling ashes drift along your flames
And softly merge into the sky
Aroma drags me out of where I was
Cream rose, stargazer, iris
Construct the map that helps me trace your steps
Zipped my mouth
I just keep climbing up, keep climbing up
Justify our vows
I know you are right above, you are right above, you are right a
Getting Back to InspirationOvercoming that mental block or that lack of inspiration can be extremely hard! I would like this to be the beginning of something to help all types of artists and hobbyists to overcome that barrier and continue to do what it is that calls you.Getting Back to Inspiration2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Your art work is a form of self-expression. Every piece that you create is unique to you, I ask that you appreciate even what you think may be the worst piece ever as that (a unique piece of you).
1.) As a rule of thumb—never throw out anything that you create, no matter how bad you think it is. In some way, you have learned from it, you can look back at it later and it may serve as inspiration to recreate it with all that you have recently learned and it may be your next masterpiece. In the very least, you may look at it later on and that piece that you created and thought was so horrible will show you just how far you have really come.
2. ) Keep a folder on your computer of work that has always served to inspire you. If this work has

PE Prose Basics: Varying SentencesVarying Your SentencesPE Prose Basics: Varying Sentences1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
When I was in college, I took an early morning Anthropology class. I had to wake up at five to catch the bus. Ugh. Yeah, I'm not a morning person. But I did it. The first day, our instructor stood before us and starting reading from the textbook. Word for word. Completely monotone. I was asleep within ten minutes. The rest of the week was the same; arrive, begin listening to the instructor, pass out. I had to drop the class and get whatever refund I could, while I could. It was my worse class experience there.
Most people know that in public speaking, the person talking needs to vary their tone and speech patterns and such to hold their audience's attention. They need to have a rhythm. Otherwise, they'll end up putting the audience to sleep. The same applies to writing. If you use the same sentence length or structure continually, you'll be the literary equivalent of my instructor.

Believe in Yourself. Nobody Else Will.This last 6 months saw the turn around of all the people in my life (as in everyone) asking me to quit art and focus on something else. I no longer receive constant suggestions of other careers that I should pursue. I'm sure many of you have had awkward conversations with strangers or elderly people about your desire to become an artist. I had one today (she told me art was not a feasible career). Only now my belief in myself is at 100% so that person walked away believing in me as well.Believe in Yourself. Nobody Else Will.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I could go on about my personal journey and about how butthurt I was that people weren't acknowledging the work that I was doing; the sacrifice that I was making, but most of you can relate as well. I actually developed quite an ego. A feeling that I was better than all of them, and that they were just ignorant assholes. Was that productive? I'm not sure. Would it be productive now that I'm entering galleries and doing shows (schedule coming soon)? FUCK NO!

i've seen so many pathetic stamps and stupid memes about rape, so many offensive pictures of women getting raped (some even having the women get murdered and raped postmortem) and tons of fan-girls who buy into the whole "rape is love" trope when it comes to their yaoi. And then you have the fangirls slapping "shota" on all of their 'uke" characters. do you even know what shota is? it's art of kiddie porn like seriously what the fuck?
and what pisses me off the most is that there have been people that i have really admired and respected here, like fantastic artists, who have left because of all the rape culture. i've seen people politely try to explain to these scumbags how rape is offensive and triggering. and how do these

We Write Fanfiction!“Grow up.” They say.We Write Fanfiction!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
“Make something original.” They say.
“If you can’t do it for money, why do it at all?” They ask.
They say lots of things.
Other people say things too:
“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” ― C.S. Lewis
“Most people don't grow up. Most people age. They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity. What that is, is aging.”
― Maya Angelou
"When you're curious, you find lots of interesting things to do. And one thing it takes to accomplish something is courage." ―Walt Disney
Writing fanfiction is not generally looked upon as something wonderful or noble. I am pretty sure we all know the stereotype they are operating under.
That’s fine. It really doesn’t matter what they think. We are not writing for them.

How to Accomplish Good Word Choice1. Don’t use a Thesaurus—use a Dictionary.How to Accomplish Good Word Choice2 years ago in Personal More Like This
While a Thesaurus can come in handy, it is really only useful if you have a very good vocabulary to start off with and just need a garage to keep them all in. A dictionary, is more useful in writing because in the definitions, it often says other synonyms in the description, as well as decreasing the chances of having those slight differences a Thesaurus will give you. For example, a smile is different than a smirk or grimace, two examples in a Thesaurus for “smile.” If “smile” is going by a definition, it is, “Form one’s features into a pleased, kind, or amused expression, typically with the corners of the mouth turned up: “smiling faces”; A pleased, kind, or amused facial expression, typically with the corners of the mouth turned up and the front teeth exposed.” This gives you a lot more information to go off of, and could also give you some more ideas as a bonus.
