Reviews: Cosplay Wig ShopsSo, here we start with the review thingy about cosplay stuff.Reviews: Cosplay Wig Shops3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I ran into a loooooooooooot of trouble in the past weeks regarding wigs I will start with them.
First of all some general important informations:
- ALWAYS keep an eye on the feedback of a shop. If there are negative or natural feedbacks READ THEM. Not every negative feedback is appropriate and some shops sell more than just wigs. So be careful.
- ALWAYS be carefull with shops that advertise with asian cosplayers. A lot of pictures are taken from the japanese highclass cosplaysupplier cospediawig or the chinese Tabaeo stores. Have a close look at the pictures. Often you can see some blured details or removed watermarks. I even found some fellow non asian cosplayers by now as advertisment for wigs they definitely didn't buy.
Some shops even take pictures from wigs on wigsstands from other sellers. Look and think twice if you buy there. You can be lucky and get what you see, but there is a pretty high chance you ge

I CAN DO MAGIC
Ok, I think there are al ot of people who want to know how this water magic was done
I will made Christmas gift for you all and explain it C: Its not that hard as it seems.
When I write Kirana e-mail what she need to take for this shoot, it was something like "You need 1 pound of floor and 10 small balloons. No. 20 are better." So, how it was done? We put water in 2 balloons and Kirana stand still, Ten and Fei pop balloons with needles after mine "1,2,3!!!" and in that second I took photos. Easy and hard at the same time.
I will give few advices. We tried to use stick with needle, but it was too lame. It made only a small hole and water pop out like...well...it wasnt cool at all. So much better do it with hands using some strength. Also its really hard for mode
2012- A Year in ReviewJanuary2012- A Year in Review2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The beginning of the year was pretty good. My birthday party was pretty relaxed-- just a short dinner with good friends at one of our favourite restaurants.
My first cosplay of the year was:
Katniss Everdeen from the book trilogy-- The Hunger Games
Hunger Games played a big part in my cosplay life for the first half of the year and I was hoping to be able to end the year with another Katniss costume, but I ran out of time to make it. I was going to do her interview dress as it was described in the book since I was really disappointed with a lot of the costume designs from the movie
I also did the Reaping Dress for Katniss in January.
February was pretty laid back as well. I continued with the Katniss costumes-- doing the Chariot outfit (from the book)
an updated Arena (book) cosplay to Tsukino Con. twinfools and I were only at Tsukino Con for a day. It's actually a really e

Thank you for being with me. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for being my friend, my lover, my life fullfiller -the stars in my heaven.
Thank you for letting me be as cliche as I possibly can towards you lol.
I owe you the world but all I have right now is my love so please accept that with a little iou for the day I can buy a house with you and ride off into the sunset for our happily ever after.

Anime Revolution Review + Avatar VideoAnime Revolution ended a few days ago and I'm still riding that con high! In my opinion it was a stellar con with a really clean and professional atmosphere/vibe. It was the con's first year, but to me it ran (and looked) like a much more experienced con. I've heard a lots of criticism of the con, but not from the people I ran into at the con itself. Everyone I came across seemed to be in really good spirits and had a positive opinion of the con. I know that there are some tensions are Vancouver cons at the moment, but in my opinion the more the better! I'm not going to side with one con or another, to me that'd be silly, I want all the cons to succeed cause if my hometown was con central than I'd never be bored!!!

Poetry Basics: BrevityBrevity: n. the quality of expressing much in few words.Poetry Basics: Brevity2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
When I was in tenth grade, I took my first literature course. It was a six week exploration of poetry. The first poem my teacher showed us was Ezra Pound's In a Station of the Metro:
The apparition of faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.
I, in all of my 16-year-old knowledge of the intricacies of what poetry is, informed my teacher that those two lines were not a poem.
"You don't think so?"
"No. They don't rhyme, they are just one metaphor, and did I mention they're only two lines?"
She sure showed me.
Importance in Poetry
Pound's poem is considered such a great work because he inserts several layers into a single image. Using only 13 words he evokes an entire painting within the reader's mind. You can hear the sounds of the trains, see the fatigue of a mother wrestling with her cranky toddler,

Ready, Set, NaNo!So it's that time of the year again and we're all racing around trying to get our bits together for NaNoWriMo. OR, we're laughing at the people running around trying to get all their bits together for NaNo. In the past, I've written articles on what NaNo is and how to prepare for it. This isn't one of those articles. Well, not entirely. Let's start with the glaringly obvious.Ready, Set, NaNo!8 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
What's the point of NaNo?
If you answered "To write a 50k Word Count Novel in a month's time," you're wrong. NaNo is about conditioning writers to write regularly, keep those creative juices flowing and to work under pressure. November is a busy month. Students are back in school. Parents are dealing with said students. In the United States, we have Thanksgiving and of course everyone is getting ready for Christmas. Add in clearing 1,667 words a day and we're talking about some major pressure. But that's the poi

1. Your artwork must be inspired by and present the Purgatory. You know, sinful souls, lurking in a dark surreal wasteland, struggling to purge the wrongs they have done in their lives, spirit guardians helping them, bad spirits cheating on them, and getting them in more trouble.
