Arcade Con 2013 ReviewWe arrived back from Arcade Con on Wednesday and things since then have been a little turbulent here at home :S However thankfully our trip to Ireland was nothing short of amazing which offsets all the crap we're dealing with right now XD Thank you to the Arcade Con staff and attendees for making this such an amazing con. We met so many wonderful people... I'm still flabbergasted at how well we were received at the con and how warm and loving the atmosphere at Arcade Con was! Absolutely incredible con experience :3Arcade Con 2013 Review1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The staff really amazed me at this con. They were attentive, helpful, kind, and always offering to get us drinks and just generally working hard to make everyone run smoothly. They worked tirelessly and it really showed in the calibre of the con.
All the people we met were so kind and easy to talk to. We'd meet someone once and after that we'd see them around and we'd wave and chat if there was time and before I knew it I was thousands of miles from home but feeling like I w

Digitigrade Leg and Stilt ConstructionIf your character has animal-like legs, such as a fawn, a werewolf, or a gargoyle, a draenai, tauren, etc, you have probably run across the problem of leg construction. These character types require digitigrade legs to look authentic and the whole point is to look authentic, right?Digitigrade Leg and Stilt Construction4 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those who are confused about what digitigrade means, here is the definition (Wiki):
A digitigrade is an animal that stands or walks on its digits, or toes. Digitigrades include walking birds (what many assume to be bird knees are actually ankles), cats, dogs, and most other mammals, but not humans, bears, and a few others (cf. plantigrade, unguligrade). They are generally quicker and move more quietly than other mammals.
So let's take a peek at how we can achieve the look without breaking our shins, hanging from the rafters in a desperate effort to stretch our Achilles tendon (No, really... DO NOT DO THAT), or undergoing some sort of mutagenic gene therapy.
Some methods are more comfortable and user frie
Sakura Con 2013WELL Sakura Con is just around the corner!! 8D I'm really excited that we get to go down to Seattle for Sakura Con this year, because for a while there we were pretty sure that it wasn't going to be possible for us to go at all considering that we have Banzaicon and GCFF/Supanova Expo right after it. But thanks to friends and getting our stuff together we managed to make it work! I can't wait to hang out with our con friends :3 and I also can't wait to meet all the people who have posted that they will be going to SC this year! So many new faces to meet, and so many familiar faces to catch up with 8D I'm looking forward to a nice, chill hang out con. More than likely we will just be hanging around the lobby near the fountains or up around the windows on the fourth floor outside the artist/dealers hall.Sakura Con 20131 year ago in Personal More Like This

All my wigs are from eBay. There is not anymore the ones left which I used for Rose, Dave, Porrim and Kanaya. My Karkat is this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/Reborn-Takeshi-Yamamoto-cosplay-wig-/250987686298?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a7008299a . Lapirin owns Roxy's so I do not know the seller, but I know that it's from eBay too.
All my t-shirt's prints (Alpha!Dave, Dark!Rose, Default!Rose, Karkat, Roxy, Kanaya) are made with T-shirt transfer paper. Basically it works this way: first you make the print with computer, then print it (to transfer paper), cut the print from the paper and iron it to your t-shirt. Easy as it can be.
Godtier!Rose is slightly different since I wanted the print to be a golden one, not a yellow. I made a
Belated Anime Expo '12 ReportSorry for the lack of updates and inactiveness, guys. I've just been generally unmotivated for everything, but I figured I'd buckle down and get this journal over with. XD; Here's my report from Anime Expo a month ago!Belated Anime Expo '12 Report2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We drove for six hours. I hate long car rides, so I made myself sleep for a lot of it. After that we stood in lines. Very long lines. But I'm glad we went up a whole day early just to get our tickets because it was nice walking in the next day without having to worry about lines. The volunteers running the lines were good sports, though. XD Our original plans to go to the beach fell through because we arrived a little later than expected and by the time we finished standing in line, it was too late. :C So instead, we decided to get Subway, and watch Spanish soap operas.
On Friday we were "fancy Vocaloids!" ChEsHiRe-K and :

10:00am Crossplay Panel
1:00pm/13:00 Fighting Dreamers Pro Q&A (Prepare some questions for us! Doesn't have to be cosplay related, either! We will also be showing our new CMV here)

Lady Loki- Marvel comics
Amaimon- Blue Exorcist
Can't wait to see everyone again/meet new people this time!
SeriouslyPlease, people. How is this so hard to understand?Seriously2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Don't call France, or any person who cosplays him, a rapist, because it is really offensive.
I mean, really goddamn rude and respectless. Both towards the character, the cosplayer, and towards any person who actually has been raped. It is not something fun, it is not a joke.
I have been through this so many times now, with people joking about France being a rapist, and it's so tiring.
First of all, this character represents a nation. A country where people live and it's not fun hearing such things about your country. I am not french but I still find this so offensive. Have some respect. (The same goes for any character in Hetalia who is being put in a bad light, such as being called a pedophile, a nazi or be represented as the maffia. Think about what you are doing.) Sure, it is all a joke and only for fun, you mean nothing serious with it, but people might just take it seriously and offensive. We're talking about

Which One Piece Arc is your most favourite?As the question asks; what would be your most favourite saga in One Piece?Which One Piece Arc is your most favourite?10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I may not be accurate but here are the current ones up to date:
East Blue Saga
Long Ring Long Land Saga
Water 7 Saga
Thriller Bark Saga
Summit War Saga
Fishman Island Saga
Pirate Alliance Saga
Of course there are arcs sectioned within these e.g Summit War Saga has Saboady Arc, Marineford Arc, Impel Down Arc etc
You may mention whatever you like. Feel free to express your thoughts!
Or why not also mention your worst!
My favourite Saga was probably the Summit War Saga because a lot of interesting story-related events happened during that.
Thought I enjoyed the Amazon Lily arc particularly because this is the first time your see Luffy alone without any friends; which is interestingly entertaining.

While practicing Wonder Girls' "Like This" dance, this idea came out :3 since Gakuen Hetalia is usually written in letters (fanfictions), I'll VISUALIZE it by MY "interactive way" XDD In this project, Italy isn't the main character but America who just transferred to this school. He completely don't know who are the students in that school, you'll know why This project will be like ANIME, like Episode 1 or blah blah blah~ I don't know how long this project will last because I have tons of ideas I'll put in this and just to let you know, what I mean of this project is like a "FAN PROJECT" I'll not use any money for this :3 what I'll use is:
-Internet (of course ._.)
-My brain which is full of lame fantasies XDD
that's all XDDD You might some spot of sort hint of boy love because you know... I'm a yaoi fangirl XD not ashamed to tell it :3 It's our school break these days so I think I'll write the "Outlines" first :3
