COSPLAY FRIDAY: Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters
Rogue Gambit I
The X-Men made their comic book debut in 1963 as a group of mutants who were born with superhuman powers and were feared and hated by society for being different from humans.
The inspiration for The X-Men came from the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and was originally titled The Mutants. Marvel asked editor Stan Lee to change the title because they thought no one would know what the wor

I've become a big fan of appliqués in the past 5 years.
In this tutorial I want to show you what you can accomplish with this simple sewing technique.
Don't be surprised if I go through the steps quickly. In the lower tutorials everything has been described.

But first: What is Worbla's?
Worbla's Finest Art is a thermoplastic that's ultra cosplayer-friendly. It cuts easily with a knife or a pair of scissors.

It's not subbed, but from what I got, it's about America's birthday and how France gave him the Statue of Liberty. And then England tries to find something to give America for his birthday.
The end, man. I love the end of the episode
EDIT: Someone did a fan sub. Bless this person. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CAlYetWZcY&list=HL1377671918&feature=mh_lolz

I am young and oldI was walking around Canadian Tire with my niece the other day. We were on the hunt for just a small pool, and we were running around the store, having some fun, you know. So we turn around a corner and I see this guy walking down the aisle with a giant lizard riding on his shoulder. It was NOT SMALL. I went up to him and asked if it was actually real, and he said yes. And then he came closer and he says, "His name is Spike, and he's really friendly. You want to pet him?" He bends down and lets my niece pet his friendly lizard, and then I got to pet the lizard. It was quite awesome.I am young and old3 years ago in Personal More Like This

A few minutes later, this old woman comes around and says to my niece, "Is yo

In recognition of Pin-Up Week, here are several retro hairstyles along with a How To for each. So if you've ever wanted to achieve the perfect pomp, rockin' rolls, or the classic beehive, take note!
First I will write about the assorted instruments & hair utensils you may need to attain all three looks. Depending on the look you want, you'll need: bobby pins [LOTS of them!], hair rollers, hairspray, rat tail comb, pomade, curling iron, soft-bristled brush, and hair accessories [clip-in flowers, bandana, etc].
Hair rolls are what most people think of when they think of the vintage 1940s hair styles. If your hair is at least shoulder length, you can achieve rolls! Give it a try - it takes some time to dry your

we live in the age of kickstarter and patreon....
people are supporting all sorts of projects...
NO! I'M NOT SETTING UP A KICKSTARTER OR PATREON!
i don't have the patience not the focus to handle all that... but it did get me thinking...
if teasers for projects can get people to fund it... what aout the full thing?
i don't do crowdfunding. i make comics.
i publish comics. if people love and buy my comics... i get to make more comics.
so with that in mind. i will post the entirety of death vigil here.
from there on it's in the hands of the readers. if you want to support the book being made, i will post the comixology links, and image digital links, as well as trade preorder links.
so if you feel this is your kind of comic, and it's something you want to see made in it'y entirety..and can afford to support it by buying it...thank you.
if not, i still hope you like it. so with no further a do... this week i will be uploading issues.

To AX!My next convention is Anime Expo!To AX!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
July 4-7 in Los Angeles, California
I am not sure if I will attend AX next year. Out of state cons are pricey and AX is the only one I attend but I'd like to mix it up a little like attending ALA or Fanime but I can only have one XD; Unless things change, no more out of state cons for me. On the plus side that makes me more determined to meet a ton of people from California since this is my last year as far as I know so feel free to say hi if you see me!
This year and next year I'll be volunteering at a lot of local cons (I hope) as I need about 200 volunteer hours for school (I am going to die!).
