Today I show you how to sew a wide braid. Most cosplayers have the problem that our character has a pattern, a braid or similar to his clothes that are simply not exist to buy.
With this little tutorial you have one of many ways to solve this problem completeley.

First of all, I have to say how proud I am of all of you! You have done great in helping me collect the 63,600 points needed to give out 100 Premium Memberships!
For those of you who do not know, I, winehaus am collecting 63,600 points in order to give 100 3-month premium memberships to other deviants this holiday season. The purpose is for you and other deviants to donate and spread the word and holiday cheer!
Now I will be giving you all an update on what's going on!
We are over 26,000 points in to the project which is amazing! However, it is not enough.
I know what you're thinking. "It's just September!" but if you think about it, that means 3 months until December, which really is not a lot.
Right now we need 36,882 points to complete the project. It may sound like a lot but we can get there with a simple technique.
SickHe could hear it, the bloody figure walking behind him over nimble feet. Then his eyes were forced to close as cold, bony fingers covered his sight. Nails like claws buried deep into his cheek as she breathed softly, surely bloody lips drawn into that scornful smile he both loved and detested.Sick3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And then she was gone, back into the sweet torments of his mind. And then, like venom, she left him on the floor, dead and strangely calm.
I had to get this out of my head.
I know, I'm weird.

Last year I visited a craft fair and discovered in the paper decoration / paper crafting a super great new material.
Maybe some of you know it.
But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.
It can be used for paper decoration, for gemstones, paint and much more.
In this tutorial I made a kind of decoration for costumes versions/ setting f

I just noticed I didn't post this until now o__O'' Okay well~ Maybe you have read the first part of Kuroshitsuji cosplay tips from me some month ago. That blog contained basic informations about wigs, etc and specific informations about [Grell Sutcliff]. If you havn't read it and are interested you can read it here -> http://arulithia.deviantart.com/journal/41813927/
Please always remember: It's not like I want to say "you have to do all this or your cosplay is bad". It's just a collection of tricks and ideas I had while cosplaying Kuro for over one year now and I want to share it somehow because I think I looked a little more like the character and it might help someone. And I don't cosplay Ciel anymore, so it might not be the high class standart you want to achive :3
English is not my native language, so~ it might sound confusing or there might be grammar or spelling mistakes to the maximum. But I'll try my best.

Calling all beta testers, bug lovers and feature loving deviants.

So, what do alpha testers get to do?
As an alpha tester you'll have the chance to talk to staff and developers about new and upcoming features, and help find and report any bugs that there may be, before it goes to beta testers or th

Back to Basics Photography - CompositionLately I've seen quite a few photos that have potential, but need some work. Composition is one of the most important parts to taking any photo (and making any piece of art really) and so I thought I'd share a few basic rules and tips. The word composition simply means 'putting together' and so, with any piece of art, it's how the piece is put together. With a bit of practice while keeping these tips in mind, you can create a more impacting, pleasing to the eye piece of work that will draw the viewer in and keep them interesting.Back to Basics Photography - Composition3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You could crop your images afterwards when you get them onto the computer, but it'd be lovely to have a great image right off the boot, right? By keeping in mind the things below, you'll be well on your way to taking better photos. And don't forget, it's always better to know the rules before you start break them A few tips before we start;
Look around using the viewfinder every time you take a picture.

PE: The Impact of Color1. - WHAT IS COLOR?PE: The Impact of Color3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Color is the aspect of things that is caused by differing qualities of light being reflected or emitted by them, as received by the human eye and processed by the human brain. It is a function of light and biology, not an exact science, no two people can see it exactly the same.
The human eye and brain together translate light into color. Light receptors within the eye transmit messages to the brain, which produces the familiar sensations of color. Newton observed that color is not inherent in objects. Rather, the surface of an object reflects some colors and absorbs all the others. We perceive only the reflected colors. Thus, red is not "in" an apple. The surface of the apple is reflecting the wavelengths we see as red and absorbing all the rest. An object appears white when it reflects all wavelengths and black when it absorbs them all.
"Colors are the deeds of light, its deeds and sufferings."
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

Change for the sake of change.Well…..that was immature drivel.Change for the sake of change.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don’t know a huge amount about the “New 52” take on the DC universe (I stopped paying attention to DC’s output when they changed their logo to look like a half-unwrapped Acme magnet) but if the Justice League: War animation is any kind of summary, I’m glad I’ve not wasted my time.
Batman now seems to think it’s impolite if he doesn’t tell everyone who he is, Wonder Woman has taken to talking like a really, really bad Shakespearean actor and Superman is a dick.
Ignoring the animation’s terrible narrative, what struck me like a rancid kipper in the face was how god-awful the character designs were. In this instance; particularly Darkseid’s. Yeah, he wore a bucket on his head in the past, but it worked! It added to his menace as a laser-firing brick of doom. You took one look at him and you knew who he was.
Watch Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. THAT version of Darkseid is an ic

Now I'm not singling out anyone about this, but a fair amount of people said they decided not to watch the movie because of 'bad designs'. But then, it's just designs. It doesn't mean the rest of the movie is bad. I also have not read any bad reviews about it. The movie has been described as entertaining and still has the same charm found in the show we all know and love (love is a strong word, but you know what I mean). So don't put off the movie just because you don't like the designs. Tolerance and acceptance is what brought us to My Little Pony in the first place. We put aside the girly impressions and embraced the show for being genuinely good.
As for my honest opinion about the designs, I'm not turned off by it. If there's any complaints, I don't like the Barbie/brats/monsters high cookie cutter proportions. The choice of clothing looks more like fashion models

THE BASE PLOT
Lovino Vargas is a new student that is in his Senior Year at Hetalia High School, having spent previous years at different schools due to his family moving around lots. While other students are looking forward to bright futures and amazing new opportunities, Lovino is rather fed up with the world around him. He feels like he's seen it all and nothing is worth getting excited over anymore. The only person he really knows at this school is his annoying classmate Gilbert Beilschmidt, his annoying little brothers Feliciano and Serafino Vargas, and the rather mysterious Kiku Honda.
