When you guys come up to us at conventions and start shaking or crying and explaining, "how much we've done for you" with our weird videos and weird selves, don't you everrr feel like you are wasting our time and you should never ever feel the need to apologize to us for telling us your very personal stories or for crying, or anything! You are never wasting our time, and when you take a moment to talk to us about such personal things that happened in your life, we are honored & it reminds us that we do these silly things not for our own amusement, but for you as well. I say it all the time but you guys keep us going, and I mean it. When you tell us these things, I can't help but want to just take you over to a less crowded area and hug you and cry with you. I'm telling you all of this because I want you all to know that expressing yourself

A Killjoy Christmas PoemA Killjoy Christmas Poem1 year ago in Personal More Like This
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and in the first Zone,
A little red Killjoy was headed for home.
His sled was a Trans Am with sand-crusted tires,
And a sleek gleaming hood with a spindly spider.
The windows were down, and the radio blared,
And a chill winter wind whipped the frost through his hair.
The Trans slightly swerved on the ice-covered road,
Leaving slushy brown tracks in the powdery snow.
In the trunk of the car sat a small leather bag,
Covered in stitches, old patches, and tags.
Heavy lumps shifted beneath the worn leather,
Clanking and chilling in the icy cold weather.
Inside the dark kitchen, with a rusty steel grill,
Kobra curled up on a mattress to ward off the chill.
With a glowing orange heater that hummed on the floor,
And a heavy blue blanket that warmed him to the core.
Ghoul was sprawled out in the cramped storage room,
Squeezed in with the buckets, the towels, and brooms.
His mouth hung wide open, and he let out a snore,

Summer is coming up, and now that you'll (hopefully) have some time to yourself, it's a great time to polish your writing skills. A good way to start is keeping a journal. Here are 31 MCR-related journal entries, one for each day of the month. Instead of the usual "fave song, fave member" prompts, I tried to make them a little interesting. If you actually do this, feel free to post them on DeviantART, Tumblr, etc. (If you want to print this, you can copy and paste it into a Word document and print it from there.)

Cosplay Tutorial: Molding and casting your piecesThis tutorial is based on how to use Smooth-on's Oomoo- and Smooth-cast series materials for cosplay purposes. There is little special too about using fiberglass instead of smooth-cast. Hope you enjoy!Cosplay Tutorial: Molding and casting your pieces2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok. Lets get started!
"I need five identically same looking parts like in that center of the picture for my cosplay but making them one by one would take LOTS of time. What to do?"
If you have the right materials then the answer is simple: "Make one sharp prototype of that piece then mold it and cast it."
Here are the materials you need:
- Modelling paste for making the prototype (or what ever material you like. It won't affect to the final product)
- Smooth-On's Oomoo 25 or 30 for making the mold (mold max 20-40 works too but it' need more skill to use. So i recommend Oomoo)
- Smooth-On's Smoothcast series for casting (i recommend smooth-cast 320 because it is easy to paint with spray paint)
(Smooth-On got lot of resellers in few countries. Here in Finland is Silcom.fi who sells their p

I am looking for art inspiration. In all honesty, my art skill is pretty lacking, but I really want to make one of my original stories into a web comic. So here's the contest!
Xan is the 16 year old son of a politician. He is rebellious and does everything he can to try to ruin his father's career. One day, he meets Logan, a 25 year old procurer in the local Red-light District. Xan ends up getting roped into working as a male escort for Logan, but things end up getting out of hand and more than Xan's father's political career is at stake.
Xan: Average height and build. Fairly long, light brown hair. Green eyes. Tends to wear muscle shirts, jeans and hoodies.
Example of Xan
Logan: Short dark brown hair. Brown eyes. Clean-shaven. Always wears suits and designer clothes. About 5 inches taller than Xan, muscular build. Wears glasses, but doesn't actually need them. Smokes quite often.

Provided to you by :iconmasterciel-bocchan: and :iconcult-clueless:
Alois is a boy who wears short shorts. Easy enough, but that's what you would think. When cosplaying as Alois, you want to make sure that your shorts are not reaching your knees. They have to be at least mid thigh or shorter. As for his stockings, they go above his knee and never touch his shorts. You'd be surprised how many people just wear black pantyhose.
Alois's ring is also on his right index finger, always~!
Now this is just a petpeeve of mine but when the shoes are just regular high top heels it bothers me. He wears boots!

Tutorial Showcase #15DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal.

How we've met Tom HiddlestonYesterday was incredible. Now it almost feels like it didn't happen to us at all. But let's start at the beginning.How we've met Tom Hiddleston3 years ago in Personal More Like This
On Tuesday evening a friend of ours found out that Tom's working on the new Jarmusch film around here and asked if we'd like to go look for him. Not quite believing we had an actual chance to meet him, we still agreed. I mean, nothing to lose and everything to gain, so why not?
Next day, on Wednesday, we had an adventurous trip to the studios, because naturally, public transport never works the way it should and when travelling to an unknown location you'll never arrive at your destination point straight away.
But after running around in the terribly hot weather of that day for around an hour, our trio was finally there!
We met a few other girls who waited in front of the studio complex gates, unsurprisingly, for the same reason and even encountered an old friend of ours we haven't seen for five years.
We weren't lucky on that day, though. After asking around for a bit, i

Until now, I'd never heard of this man. For over 20 years, he has been snatching African children from their homes, turning the boys into soldiers and the girls into sex slaves. He forces them to kill their own parents, and turns them into his own personal army.
To this day, he hasn't been captured. Most of the world don't even know his name. Until tonight, I was one of them.
Please spend 30 minutes of your time to watch this, and spread the word. If we could only remove a single evil individual from the world in our lifetime, this guy would likely be top of my list.
