COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!Hi guys!! Thank you as always to all watchers and everyone who faves and comments - I'm so sorry I don't have much time these days to reply to everything, but I definitely do read and appreciate them all!COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!
I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^ That said, hope you enjoy! *chu*
Any questions please feel free to ask!
Ahri cosplay- Skirt TutorialHi again guys!Ahri cosplay- Skirt Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here is the tutorial for the skirt. I started similalarily to how I did with the top- But first! Let's talk supplies.
You are gonna need:
*White fabric (I used some satin)
*Fabric paint- I use Jacquard brand - Gold an a red. (5)
*Paint brushes of all sizes- primarily smaller and thinner ones.
*White thread of course
----I will correspond the bottom pictures with the points below----
You can start by taking your measurements- using the pattern method from the shirt create a pattern. Make sure to make the pattern about 2 inches larger than you are to allow enough space for sewing/breathe room. It is also important that you make sure to make the top layer of the skirt larger at the bottom so that it sticks out in the nice points like she does in game
I made my skirt in 2 different pieces. The top half and the bottom half.
1) First I will talk about the bottom half of the skirt;
I first created two pieces to sew together in the front and the back (The seems wil
Ahri Cosplay - Sleeves TutorialHello again!Ahri Cosplay - Sleeves Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is the tutorial for the sleeves of her dress. It is debatable whether or not her sleeves are attached to her top or not. I personally made them separate because It would be even more constricting than it already is XD. I would have liked to made the top of my sleeves a little bigger and I may redo them- but that's for something else. :3
In my first initial post about Ahri's top I posted a picture of the patterns I made, the stencil on the left is the one I made for the sleeve. I know it looks big, but it should! You want to leave enough room at the top and the bottom of the sleeve so it will flair out.
--- As always, pics coordinating with numbers! <3 ---
What you will need:
* Red fabric (I used satin)
* Red thread
* A strip of your white fabric
* Your fabric paints
* Paint brushes and some water/ a paper towel or two
* Optional; Wire (used to shape the top of the sleeves)
First you will make your pattern, measure the top of your arm and stretch it out so that you
Shame about fennecs + my favourite wolves - PHOTOSHi!Shame about fennecs + my favourite wolves - PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I went to my beloved ZOO Olomouc to photograph animals yesterday - I needed a break from the thesis writing.
I spent hour or maybe more with my favourite wolf subspecies - Iberian wolves. They were very active and even aggresive, snapping their jaws and snarrling a lot. One of them tried to catch a crazy rodent. It was fun and I got many photos for you
But the bad news - fennec fox got a new light in their enclosure. It is a red light and it TOTALLY does not allow you to photograph, because the specific light ruins the texture of the animal's fur and there is no chance to get any photo I am sad about it, I loved this place for fennec photography now it has been lost... in ZOO Dvur Kralove, they put those foxes into very dark indoor exhibit, so this place is also lost and in Prague, you never see them... Hm... I am a bit sad about it, I would miss those little guys
I also definitely need a new lens. My current one had troubles to focuse yesterday and I could not take a s
Manga/Anime Tutorial Hub: Drawing AnimeSo what's this all about? A while back I decided that it would be best to create a place where tutorials that are vital to Manga/Anime artists to have a home, an easy place to reach if they felt that they ever needed it. One by one articles featuring tutorials based off of specific trades and mediums will be posted, and in the end a master article that'll unite them all together.

❀ DRAGON*CON WRAP-UP ❀
I think the best word I can use to describe this convention is "overwhelming." It was an amazing weekend, but boy, it really wore me out, both physically and mentally. Between claustrophobia and social fatigue I didn't do too well with the crowds and had to retreat back to the quiet of our hotel room a few times throughout each day just to recharge.
But in spite of that it was a lot of fun! I absolutely loved the atmosphere and the congoers themselves - it's definitely an older, more mature, and honestly nicer attitude than what you see at most anime cons nowadays. So I really enjoyed how everyone was so friendly and I really felt like part of the Dragon*Con family, even though it was my first time going!
Plus, the level of craftsmanship and creativity was beyond amazing. I'm seriously motivated to step it up from here on out! (Let's just say... there's talk of

Dig what you want, little man.Made a pilgrimage to my local walmart today to scope out the new pony section they have up. Snagged some napkins and drinking cups, then headed to the pony aisle. I kinda waited back, because there was a family checking out the pony toys as well. There was a mother, a son, and a daughter. The daughter looked around 12-13, the son looked about 7-8. She was holding on to a Rarity plushie while her little brother asked her to grab a Fluttershy for him on the shelf. The daughter basically said "You can't have her, it's a show for girls! You're not a little girl!" The mother basically flashed a glance at her and said "Now come on ____".

After long time, somehow demotivated. Sorry.Hi pals,After long time, somehow demotivated. Sorry.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
it is me, Woxys do you still remember me?
It has been months since I’ve posted my last journal.
I apologize for my inactivity.
The first reason is that I have a job and that means I am usually tired in the evening, so I do not have mood or even energy to edit photos and to prepare long journals.
The second reason is… sorry, I will be pretty honest and do not get angry, please. I think everybody’s noticed dA has changed the system. Now it is much more difficult to get some attention. I think original idea was to give a chance to less know deviants but as a result, people I know are not active at all – in the past, they were happy when they got to front page time to time, reaching some 300-600 faves few times a year. New system gives them 30 faves even for really beautiful shots.
Year or so ago, when I posted a photo of a cute animal, I could have 100 faves in first 15 minutes.
Now it happens that when I post a photo of some baby animal, I have 3 view

Opening Wig Commissions!Hello all!Opening Wig Commissions!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Due to an overwhelming positive response I am opening up wig commissions starting in June! At this point in time I am ready to start taking commissions to order bases for in order for those bases to be here in June so I can start work on them right away
I will be accepting 5 commissions to start.
The pricing will be done on a quote basis, which means that I will assess the price of the commission once I have all of the information on the project. It will factor in base wig cost + materials + work + shipping
To ensure that I can get you the best product possible, I am hoping that people commissioning me will use the following form so that I can know all of your stipulations up front

Few words about art-thieves.Hi!Few words about art-thieves.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My dear watchers, I really appreciate your support when it comes to fight against art-thieves.
But I bet there are also many people whose thoughs can be interpretted like "why is she so hysterical about it?". Some people say, that the fact, that some photo is worth stealing, is a kind of compliment.
Ok, so let me present my point.
At first: why am I so unhappy about reposting of photos?
Because, pals, if somebody just reposts a photo without any change, it just gives totally open space to other people who would find the photos on his/her blog, taking it and posting it themselves. And because the first person did not credit the original author, they also do not credit the creator. The more people do that, the more times the photo is reposted. Always without credit. Sooner or later, it becomes a kind of "public" property and original author has almost no chance to effect this situation.
Do you know this photo? Honestly, EVERYBODY knows it. But do you know original author? Do you
