"When are you going to write for real? Why are you wasting your time writing this junk?"
Attributes: This person is inclined to hate your stuff. Without fail. They don't read what you write, or they read "real" literature. And your work is so far below what they like, you're obviously in desperate need of their opinion and correction, which is largely that you should abandon what you're working on and start writing their idea of a story. They hate mainstream, or hate a genre
An Open Letter to DC ComicsSo: I recently sent DC Comics a somewhat, er, lengthy note outlining my current dissatisfaction (to put it mildly) with their product. I've semi-randomly decided I should post it to the Interwebz somewhere, and since I don't have a proper blog, I figured it'd have to be here. I've edited it a bit for length. If anyone actually reads this (ha! like that'll happen) and is curious to see the whole thing, drop me a line.An Open Letter to DC Comics2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am no longer buying DC comics.
There are several reasons for this. In part, I'm unhappy with DC's creative direction. I was not happy with the loss of the marriage of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, or with the downplaying of Lois' importance to the Superman mythos. Lois is Clark's equal, every bit as smart and heroic and psychologically strong. She is not and never was an impediment or a 'trophy wife'. I was not happy the brutal injury of Bette Kane to provide angst and motivation for the heroine in the otherwise fine Batwoman title (a case of 'women in refrigerators'). I
Vocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.Jin's Flower Wreath ProcessVocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometime last May, Kat moonlightflight and I cosplayed our favorite Vocaloid song, "Just Be Friends".
Their outfits seem simple at a glance, but that actually makes things more complicated sometimes. Hahah. Despite Luka's dress looking like something you could probably find in a mall, Charmie yaoiangel14 made the dress from scratch exactly as it looked in the artwork, just for Kat moonlightflight. Kat and I also did our best with the part of their outfits that had the most amount of detail (which also happens to be our favorite parts) the flower wreaths.
I have some pictures of the progress of my wreath, so I thought I'd share them. This probably isn't the best method of going about this, but this is how I did mine and I found it pretty easy. (I wish I could have taken more photos or a video, but to be honest I wasn't quite sure I'd pull this off at first. Hahah!)

Salve a tutti
Scrivo questo Journal perchè ho bisogno di aiuto riguardo una faccenda che affligge me e mia sorella Hieyizar da oltre un anno , vi prego , se avete un po' di tempo , leggete çç , so che è un po' lungo ma abbiate pazienza , non voglio chiedervi questo favore senza spiegarvi la vicenda , non lo troverei onesto.

Lo scorso anno , forse qualcuno lo ricorda , annunciai la futura pubblicazione di un fumetto proprio con questa casa editrice , una mia amica di fiducia già ci lavorava ed un'altra amica mi aveva contattata per chiedermi di realizzare un fumetto yaoi , ero molto insicura ma decisi di provare.

A Music Review - 'Twerk' (Justin Bieber ft. Cyrus)I heard this song and Good God, it was so bad I just had to write something about it...enjoy.A Music Review - 'Twerk' (Justin Bieber ft. Cyrus)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
*EDIT* turns out the song has been removed from YouTube by UWG, so meaning you cannot hear the song until it's legal again or official. So either that's a good thing or a bad thing, take from that what you will.
*EDIT 2* Wait, it seems to have come back. Nevermind.
I know it's been a few days since the VMAs with Miley Cyrus' performance being the only thing anyone talks about it. I stated before the obnoxiousness of Miley acting so immature by trying to pass herself off as this slutty brat to try and distance herself from her Disney days with Hanna Montana. Granted, I couldn't stand her crappy music back then, but seeing what she's become lately is just embarrassing to watch her degrade herself and yet her fans just let her do this saying "she's an adult now." Cause nothing says you're an adult than acting even more immature than a 10 year-old.
With that said, let's also talk about another

On Beading...First a note on suppliers:On Beading...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've recommended ordering from Fire Mountain Gems because I've found their customer service and prices to be excellent, and their selection is VAST, though there are a few essential they don't carry. Shipwreck Beads does a great job as well, but I don't see Japanese seed beads on their site.
I've worked with everything from fishing line (do NOT be tempted to use fishing line, it is designed to deteriorate over time, I can't count how many times I've been hired to repair work that fell apart because of this) to dental floss. Living in bush Alaska limited my resources for years. It's so great to be able to order from online catalogs now, I wish I'd had that ability then- I'd have been doing a lot more beading. Back then we only had an ancient tattered copy of a black and white catalog from Grey Owl
Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:

I used the naked body mesh from Maleshep and Femshep for the shirt and added sleeves, I didn't like how it looks without sleeves because the shirt is "painted" on the body and sleeves adds some depth to the shirt.
Some of you told me that I should upload this so I'll upload the files in one day or two after fix some issues with the mesh . And now after this mod I'm going to finish the Modded Formal Outfit finally!.
Need to fix before the release:
- Some clipping on the neck in both versions.
- Adjust the normal map.
- Some clipping on the sleeves in both versions.

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!
