This time me and Elffi were cosplay guests for TRACON in Tampere (Finland).
We had the duties to be judges for the World Cosplay Summit (WCS) preliminary Finland and we hosted a panel about "Cosplay around the world".
I debuted a new costume: Perona from One Piece <3!
So let's start with Saturday :3!
The building of Tracon is really big and pretty ^^. Also they had a really nice outside area next to a smaller lake .
I was the most excited for the World Cosplay Summit preliminary! We already had a pre-judging early in the morning. We were happy to have 13 really great teams. It was specially interesting to asked how they did certain parts. Some showed really outstanding techniques. I was
Autumn's Six Rules to Remember in Life!Autumn LeFleur's SIX RULES TO REMEMBER IN LIFEAutumn's Six Rules to Remember in Life!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Money cannot buy happiness, but it’s more comfortable to cry in a BMW with heated seats than on a bicycle in the rain.
2. Forgive your enemy, but remember the a##hole’s name.
3. If you help someone when they’re in trouble, they will remember you when they’re in trouble again. But you also made a friend for life.
4. Many people are alive only because it’s illegal to shoot them.
5. Alcohol does not solve any problems, but then neither does milk. Wine says you are a very good dancer and Vodka says dance on the tabletops with people you don't know.
6. There are more uses for ball gags than we can all comprehend. Mother in law that won't be quiet - Ballgag. Tired of always putting your foot in your mouth....try a ballgag! Ever wanted to sound like a Muppet? Ball gag
May you carry these very important words with you everywhere.
Some More Polymer Clay TipsBack by popular demand, I have gathered more polymer clay tips for you to use to improve your pieces!

Don't use those crappy Sculpey or Fimo glosses for your creations. Their expensive as hell, you only get a tiny bit in a jar, and their usually very gloopy and annoying to apply. Do yourself a favour - go to the hardware store and ask for "Varathane". This is found in the paint department with all the wood stainers and such. Make sure you buy the WATERBASED formula, in GLOSS not semi-gloss. This stuff sells for about $7.00 for a 946mL tin and you will not need to buy anymore gloss for a very long time. This stuff works wonders - it may be for wood, but this stuff has IPN technology which means Interpenetrating Polymer Network which means it's going to soak into your clay, adhere well, and make your clay creations damn spiffy looking.

Really simple, this is a must buy for people that wants to do manga. Its really cheap plugin, cost 18 dollars. Saves you tons of time, and its really easy to use, you control it.
I personally love the perspective lines with antialized option, in that way i dont need to buy other softwares for that, you can even add colors to them.

Kanasaiii and I had became fans of Shit Girls Say when it debuted, since then, it turned into this giant internet meme where people made countless videos that label 'Shit ______ Say'.
So as cosplayers, we decided to contribute one: Shit Cosplayers Say
We have more content but ran out of time, these were everything filmed in one day. Our gifted actress was very game on everything we asked her to, including looking ugly and changing her clothes for each scene.
Please leave a comment to share your cosplayer experiences over at the video. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did making!

PE: Guidelines to Starting your Own Craft BusinessGuidelines to Starting your Own Crafting BusinessPE: Guidelines to Starting your Own Craft Business3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So you make cute crafts, and probably someone offered you money for them. Maybe you need the money, and if you're like me, you need it to buy more crafting supplies. Whatever the reason, starting your own crafty business is a decisions that you should take seriously... it's not as easy as opening an Etsy account and setting some random prices for your work. There is a lot of things to consider to keep the business going, your money safe, your name clean, and your costumers happy.
By no means this is an absolute guide, merely a few guidelines of things I've found important or questions I get asked often by people interested in opening their own business. Most of this tips are intended for online selling, but they should apply for other ways of selling too. I will probably do more detailed guides in the future, as I learn more myself.

Soul Drinkers and Imperial Guards!So today I received a treat in my facebook inbox from old colleague and now-kickass GW artist, Kevin "Kingmong" Chin: http://www.blacklibrary.com/Blog/Art_and_Soul.htmlSoul Drinkers and Imperial Guards!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Right now, I'm still awaiting a response from the Black Librarians to see if I am allowed to post some higher-res versions of my 3 Soul Drinkers covers here on DA. Till then, this is all they have up on their blog and all I have to show for, for now! For you Soul Drinkers fans out there, I was told not to reference any notable characters of the SD lore and come up with my own designs.
The general brief for the 3 covers was to have a tactical space marine, a captain, and lastly a dreadnought (being awoken). I thought it would be a neat idea to compose all the covers from a similar worms eye angle, not just for theatrics but rather to literally show the life cycle of a Space Marine as he fights and rises through the ranks, leading his brethren and eventually being entombed within a dreadnought to continue his tireless fig
