I didn't delete them, because it's impossible to delete comments on DeviantART. I'm not sure what's happened, but I hope this glitch is resolved soon! I have sent in a report.Win a free bottle charm! [NOW CLOSED, REVIEWING]4 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT TWO: Looks like the comments that vanished aren't coming back. I reported this issue to DA and they said it's a known issue and they're working on it, so I'll wait 1-2 more days to see, but if you haven't reposted your idea by now, please do so again! Sorry about this, but it was some massive glitch that erased 50+ comments, some before I even got to see them. So please repost your ideas if they've been erased, thank you! I will be choosing soon.
THIS IS NOW CLOSED. All comments placed after the last comment I've made on the entry will not be counted toward this mini contest thing. You can still make suggestions, but you will not be in the running to receive a free item.

Few words about Joker and Harley costumesREI: We wanted to make a small post about our new costumes, inspired by the amazing arts of NoFlutter :iconnoflutter:Few words about Joker and Harley costumes8 months ago in Personal More Like This
You, guys, must have seen my Victorian Poison Ivy costume, which was as well designed and drawn by the same artist. I felt in love with it the minute I saw it. And Ryoko also liked Harley Quinn’s costume and decided to make it in pair with me.
But after some time NoFlutter created the amazing, colorful and eye-catching design of gender bender Joker. And immediately we thought that would be a great idea to make the craziest comics pair of all times together. Harley Quinn and a new girlfriend she created for herself – the Lady Joker!

Tsukino-Con 2015!Hello there, all the peoples of the interwebs.Tsukino-Con 2015!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Well, another Tsukino-Con has come and gone, but was it ever a great one. I had so much fun meeting some nice new people, and reuniting with old con buddies. One of the highlights was when my friends at OppositeCosplay were invited as special guests! It was really exciting for them, since it was their first time being invited to a con. They did some good panels, including How to Make a Onesie and Intro to Lolita Fashion (which were both very informative). It was also just plain awesome to hang out with them, because they really are wonderful, friendly people. I also filmed my first cosplay showcase videos! Got clips of lots of my friends, such as KingdomZelaybli, Myelix, AnyaPanda, Fantasyrhia, Yukibun, TheRiverStudio, and many more. I tried really hard to make the videos look nice, but of course it's my first time so my homemade camera stabilizer skills aren't perfect. XP Nonetheless, I think they turned out really w
Avatar Nations Cosplay PinaforesMwahahahaaa! I finally got around to designing all of my Avatar Nations designs. I was holding off on Fire and Air XD Finally kicked myself in the behind and came up with a design I was happy with.Avatar Nations Cosplay Pinafores2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anywho, I decided to base my designs more off of the nations' clothing rather than actual characters. I figured they're way more versatile. Plus, Fire Nation clothing is definitely my favorite despite me not really liking any Fire Nation characters XD This way I don't have to "be" anyone and can still be Fire Nation.
I just put in an order for vinyl and some of the fabrics I'm running low on, so it's probably gonna be a couple weeks until I can get any prototypes together (and probably add some extra time to that for deviantart since I update Facebook usually a week before DA with new designs). But if you want to pre-order any for Christmas and whatnot, feel free to request a commission since it might be a bit before I get prototypes completed.
2010 End-of-year Wigs ReviewEdit: Added some wig shops I missed. XD And some more wig pics donated by astachan <32010 End-of-year Wigs Review5 years ago in Personal More Like This
As promised, here's the wig review for this past year(2010) I was supposed to post this up before new year, but...yeah, I was late as usual. XD Hope everyone is having a good 2011 so far!
I'll try to make this as simple as possible.(but I seem to always write long journal..) This review will include 3 sections: Japanese shops, Ebay shops, and Taobao(China) shops. I will put link on how to buy from these online shops. Link to their websites is on the title of their shop. Also, if you click on the image of the wig, it will show you the link to the exact wig that I bought from that shop(if it's still available). The price range of wigs is estimated with shipping(+other fees) to the USA. My head size is around 22", a bit bigger than average person's head, but I have short hair, so keep that in mind when comparing size of wig cap.

sry for being so late with updating you with my latest BIG project.
I'm working on this costume since January and finally I see the end of the long tunnel coming XD.
I wanna show you my now finished Saber Gift Figure armor!
If you don't know that version, you can see the reference here ---> http://www.ncsx.com/2009/012609/fate_stay_saber_gift.htm
If you like what you'll see please visit my facebook artist page as well ;D. There are always ALL progress photos form the stuff I am working on ^.^ ->>> http://facebook.com/calssara.cosplay
well let's start with the raw armor parts, completely unpainted.
I used WOBLAS FINEST ART as my material. It's a thermoplastic material with a mix out of plastic and wood. It's close to Wonderflex, but thicker, more durable and it's easier to make round shapes l shoulders, knees and chest plates. You can also melt the material together and use it as thermoplastic modeling clay!
This is my VERY first armor and even a bloody begin

I know you've all been wondering when the heck I was going to start my latest contest so I have good news! You don't have to wait any longer. It's llama time!
This contest is going to be pretty simple. It involves two amazing things that are rarely combined -- llamas and giant grandma underwear. The goal of this contest is to make some sort of artwork involving those two things. What you can do is up to you! It can be an exact interpretation or an abstract one.
Some examples for inspiration would be: a llama in MLP style with a underwear cutie mark, a llama wearing pin
Featured Movie - Fan Favorite - The Lion KingThanks for voting in all those polls I put up!Featured Movie - Fan Favorite - The Lion King3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The winner is...
The Lion King!
To see other movie features, go here: http://disney-club.deviantart.com/journal/Featured-Movies-and-Shorts-225465518
"The Lion King was considered a little movie because we were going to take some risks. The pitch for the story was a lion cub gets framed for murder by his uncle set to the music of Elton John. People said, 'What? Good luck with that.' But for some reason, the people who ended up on the movie were highly passionate about it and motivated."
The movie came out in 1994 and became the little movie that could! It was the highest grossing film of that year.
Since then there's been many re-releases of the movie, sequels, and even a Broadway musical based on it.
What's the movie about? Well, you're a Disney fan! Shouldn't you have seen it by now?

Legend of Korra: Book 2 (corrected version)This is just to clear up some confusion from the previous blog post :]Legend of Korra: Book 2 (corrected version)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
(links for reference, footage, and extras will be at the end of this blog post)
Alright so first thing's first.
It has been made public that Nickelodeon ordered 26 more episodes for Legend of Korra after Book 2, to which Mike and Bryan also stated at San Diego Comic Con. The 26 episodes (after Book 2) will be split into Books 3 and 4. What names will the Books take on? We don't know yet, but we do know for sure that Book 2 will indeed be called "Spirit."
Book 2: Spirit will take place 6 months after the Amon Arc/Book 1: Air finale, and it will definitely focus on Korra's spiritual side and the spirit world. At this point Korra is now a "fully realized Avatar" meaning that she is master of all four elements, and can control the Avatar State, going in and out at will (as shown in the animatic at SDCC).

Vending Machine TutorialFor all you Durarara fans I'm sure you've always wished to be able to pick up and threaten people with a vending machine the way Shizuo does, and now you can! I'm just doing a quick write up of how I built my lightweight vending machine. I was going to make a proper tutorial with pictures buuuuuut, life happens.Vending Machine Tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
DISCLAIMER: These are lightweight, but that means they fall apart on the easy side. I've improved my design with each one I'm made but it still is on the fragile side. They get knocked down by mild winds cause they are so light and, here's the important part, NOT GENERALLY ALLOWED BY CON SECURITY. I've been uneasily allowed to have the vending machine outside of two cons but not to bring it in. Which means when I wanted to do anything I had to leave it somewhere unattended. Once another Shizuo cosplayer came up and started messing with it while friends I was with watched and before they could tell him to stop he broke it and when I came back from the restroom I had to repair it
