What doesn't kill you makes you strongerI just went back and read some of the horrible comments I've received from people in the past.What doesn't kill you makes you stronger4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I remember how hurtful it was and how much I wanted to just dissapear from it all. I felt helpless and hopeless.
The internet can be a terrible place.
When people aren't accountable for what they say they feel a certain sense of power. The ability to judge others without being judged ourselves is a position of immense dominance. It's exhilarating to exercise that dominance over another person.
But now, looking back, I realize that it doesn't bother me anymore. I don't even bother hiding, deleting or responding to those comments because it just doesn't bug me. I feel a resounding "eh",
I keep those comments up so that people can see the kind of behaviour that people reduce themselves to when they're behind a computer screen. Every "this is shit" or ""he" is just a dyke and a "she"" has meaning to me now. It means that I've overcome something that I never would have thought possible. I'm not hu

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

To All Kingdom Hearts fanI was revisiting my Birth By Sleep for the PSP and I said to myself...this would be a great film. So as a little project I edit (or at least try to edit) the entire Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep: Final Mix into one full Disney animated feature. Some of the clips and audio are a little jumpy but that is only because of the bad source I was getting via internet. It's in English dubbed with a little surprise in the end of the film. So if you have the whole day...(trust me it's long), please sit back. Grab some popcorn and enjoy the film.To All Kingdom Hearts fan4 years ago in Personal More Like This

This is a piece of British history under threat. If you can take a moment to 'like' this page - then maybe we can create awareness of how important it is to preserve buildings like this.
Otherwise, it will probably be pulled down, taking away all of the memories and moments that it has witnessed through the years.

Alright as a little update, my long-time (yeaaaarsold) bestfriend, Addison - or Squeaker-Dee as they were once known as, came to visit my in early June and is meant to stay till the end of July. But as things turn out, after my insufferable hinting for months on end prior to their visit - we now are dating and it's the cutest thing ever idec nobody can change my mind, they're the most precious--//sob. But we just got back from a weekend coast trip to Newport or the 4th, we ended up watching the display at Yaquina Bay rom the bridge, got matching Slytherine and Gryffindor shirts, kraken necklaces, and I got them a cuddly sealpup whom they named Rupert, and I got one named Daniel (who is a punk rocker).

New 3-D Peanuts Movie... but why?No. Just... NO!New 3-D Peanuts Movie... but why?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Look... It’s incredibly commendable that Blue Sky (A studio who’s talent is sadly grossly ignored by the general public) is able to re-create almost perfectly the art style of Charles Schulz with computer graphics. My main problem is... WHY? Why does it have to be 3-D? Why does it have to be CGI? Ever heard of Occam’s Razor: “The simplest solution is often the best?” Why work so hard emulating a hand drawn art style in 3-D instead of just doing it HAND DRAWN? For all their hard work, this looks like a 2-D Peanuts cartoon minus the outlines so... why not just animated in 2-D and don’t use outlines??? You can even apply a post faux 3-D effect over it to achieve basically the exact same results you get here so... Why?
To be fair, the movie looks like it’s going to be very faithful to the original series and probably will be very cute. I just don’t understand why it needs to be 3-D.

Another day gone. There were only three customers to stop by her shop today. First was a flustered middle-aged woman, plump, with frazzled hair and too much makeup, asking frantically for another wrinkle removing potion, after insisting that the previous one she had gotten from a new young witch down on Porter's Street hadn't worked.
She liked that girl. Such promise and energy for one so young. Yes, that one deserved a bright future.
The next was a young man, wearing a disheveled sweater hanging off of one shoulder, wrinkled pants and tennis shoes. He insisted on a love potion, that she (a girl he mentioned but had not named) was clearly meant to be with him, she just didn't know it, and needed a little push.
I bet she's a nice girl, poor thing.
When she refused to make him the potion he starting shouting and waving his arms angrily, nearly knocking over poor Vervain, and breaking several of her poti

Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-upBasic Information:Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-up3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As said before: English is not my native language. I'm sorry for every mistake I made while writing. I'm just showing you what works for me. This is a "you can" tutorial and not "you must". I hope this gives you a basic idea on how I do it and helps you as well. I will not show you any brands of make-up I work with since they are different from country to country. I'm not a dermatologist or a professional make-up artist, so I can't give you tips for "problem skin" cases like acne and so on. Please consult a doctor and let them give you tips for what's best to use before buying something randomly
If you don't know what make-up to use out of the hilarious amount of available products in stores ask a vendor in the store of your choice. They will help you.
This tutorial will be the base for every upcoming make-up related tutorial I will post in the future.
First of all I clean my skin and apply vanishing crème. It's always good to do so

The support we've received over the years has been astounding, and I can't thank every single one of you enough for being interested in our cosplays, our videos and our lives. We're not amazing. We're not the best. We're just a bunch of wacky people who love the hobby and the creative/social experiences that it brings. Looking back from where we started I can retrospectively see that we've all come so far, and I feel that our videos reflect not just a growth in our cosplay/video work, but also our growth

This past week was been amazing,
one of the best memories that will keep me comfort in my old age,
when my grand kids stop calling,
and they through me into a home that steals my Bingo money.
I'm so happy I was able to go this year,
everyone was so nice and welcoming,
and the Staff...
I have never seen a convention that cares so much,
I hope other conventions will be able to see what dedicated staff can do,
because I was blown away.

This attitude is not ok, for many reasons beside it being completely illogical.
1) You don't get to decide who is a geek or not a geek. Period. Geekdom is about acceptance, not rejection. If you're all about Not Liking Other People That Like The Stuff That You Like, you're not a geek, you're a hipster. Who found a pair of glasses.
2) You don't get to decide who is hot and who is not hot. That girl at the con with thick thighs and a little bit of muffin top? She is a perfect 10 in my book, bro. Except that women's bodies aren't up for the judging. Her attractiveness or lack therof does not define her geekiness. The same way that it does not define her social experience. Pretty
