Contest folder closed! Thank you for all the entries!
Judging now in progress. We will try to finish everything up in the next few days.

Stay tuned for results!
Fancy banner, eh?! Haha, welcome to the first contest of FancyCrafts! I, FrozenNote, will be your host!
What is this contest about?
Summer has started and many people have vacation during this time. So instead of goofing around doing absolutely nothing...why not learn a new craft? Something you haven't tried before? It could be fun!
So basically, this contest is about you learning a new craft. You, the entrant, should make something with a technique and medium you haven't tried before.
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

Hello beautiful crafters. It's time to get out your cameras, your crafty tools and get ready for another Artisan Craft Challenge!
The poll was a close one, but "Prehistory" pipped them all at the post to snatch a modern day victory.
Since this question has been asked already I'll clarify here for everyone: the definition of Prehistory is up to you and how you interpret it. Let your imagination flow and show us what prehistory means to you.
But how do I enter, you ask?
I'm glad you asked. Here's the official challenge rules:

Win a HP Tablet! -RESULTS-The Journal we have all been waiting for!Win a HP Tablet! -RESULTS-1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Thank you everyone for the patience you've shown me this last week after the deadline. This was such a hard decision for me to figure out! Everyone did such an amazing job, I had alot of trouble deciding who to pick. I called friends and family over to my house for help, and with the help of the amazing fencergirl00 we have a top 3 finally!
BUT FIRST! I just wanted to put in some love to everyone:
Bliood-Kira , TalanxShien:
I love how this piece can tell a story with no words included. The Demon Talan Vs the beautiful angel fighting in the open fields of twilight. It looks like a lot of thought went into this piece, from the dark to light gradient, to the type of houses in the background. An epic battle I would love to see how it played out.

Some people didn't vote (but read the note) so I replace them by another vote for each of them (logical, since the participants can't vote for themselves, it's not fair if some people didn't vote ha ha). It's for that that it took some time ^^
In any case, thank you to all of you for your participation ! It was fun to see how you can manage such a theme and the difficulties in this challenge !

Vizkopa's Writing TipsHi everyone!Vizkopa's Writing Tips4 months ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you may know, I’m in my final year of a Creative Writing degree and while I still have a long way to go in terms of my writing skills, I’ve picked up some very useful tips from my tutors over the last few years (and bear in mind, some of these tutors are published writers, so their advice is sound!). These tips have really helped me to improve my writing and I would like to share just a few of them with you all Included in this journal are some points about writing in general, as well as ones that are a little more specific to fan fiction. A lot of them might seem really simple and obvious to some, but they are so very important and I hope everyone can take at least something away from this, and that you continue to be inspired to write and hone your skills
Now I have formatting as number one because so matter how good of a writer you are, no matter how beautiful your prose is, it needs to be readable! A lot of

I’m certain there are people who dislike me. Some I come to know through whisperings because I have eyes everyyyyywheeeeere.
However, I don’t feel the need to acknowledge them or do anything about it unless they are causing any real harm, especially to people I care about.
There is a popular quote that I like referencing for this topic, which gets the message across in a charming way:
“You can be a juicy, ripe peach and there’s still going to be someone who doesn’t like peaches, so you can either submit to someone’s criticism of you, or you can get on with the business of being your own amazing self who attracts other like-minded people that appreciat

Elitism in Geek and Nerd CultureDudes criticizing cosplayers' personal attractiveness on Kotaku makes me miss the days when nerds supported other's outsider status. - Ken LevineElitism in Geek and Nerd Culture1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Geek culture has become somewhat elitist, which is ironic and sad if you consider its origins. - Brian Sharon to Levine
These two tweets made me realize how true this is. It's sad and horrifying at the same time. I'm seeing it in me, in my friends, in conventions, all the time in the internet... Why are we doing this?
I set myself as an example. I used to be anime and manga nerd, but eventually I become bored of all clichés which repeated themselves from series to series. Then I found the delights of western comics and started to look down on anime nerds. I found anime childish, storylines and characters sexist, quite racist and morally wrong, and full of recycled characters, story archs and so on. But why should I care? Western comics have same problems, all the same problems, just in different pa

Luffy is not a "dumb" characterI know this is random but during my usual One Piece obsessing online I came across a lot of statements about Luffy describing him as a dumb, static character (coming from both fans and haters) and I felt like posting what I thought about this.Luffy is not a "dumb" character3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Luffy is a simple-minded, brash, enthusiastic character with a ton of energy to exert.
A generic Shonen main character following his dreams.
What sets him apart is Oda's revelation of his character beyond that first look and his usual attributes.
As the One Piece story develops, Luffy is forced to make more and more mature decisions as a captain and this has revealed a side of him that can only be seen in these situations. A hidden maturity that makes him such a facinating character to me. Isn't that how true character is revealed in real life? It's not like someone changes with traumatic situations placed before them, that's when they show their true colors that would not have been seen otherwise.
So character-wise, Luffy is simple ye
Tokyo bluesEXTREME STREET PHOTOGRAPHY - VTokyo blues1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Are there places were street photography is impossible? Are there countries easier than others, or harder than others? How is it street shooting like in exotic places, or places you never visited, places that are completely different from what you are used to? I asked a few street photographers around the world to share with us their experiences.

Japan is a fascinating country with an unusual mix of the traditional and modern. It's a magical place filled with anime, cosplayers, samurai, sushi, and all the strangest things imaginable. Wrong! Well, not really, but this is just the cliché, outer covering. When newcomers just scratch the surface of this country, this cliché is all they find. But, in reality, Japan is a place like any other: full of human beings who have normal lives with all their little dr
