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 stronger3 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
Devious Journal EntryFIRST OFF, I want to tell you guys something, because it is super important for you to understand this.Devious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

As alot of you may have seen or heard Josefin and I are not together anymore. She found someone else so I broke up with her. That's the veryvery short version of it. It was mildly speaking a bad and complicated breakup. I wont give out any details because it is no longer important, I just want to say that I will continue cosplaying all of the characters that I cosplayed with her with other people. They did represent us in a way but after everything that happened they dont anymore. I still love those pairings and characters so I wont give them up. We are not parts of eachothers lives anymore in any way.
She is no longer a part of JarofClouds and that is something the whole group decided together and it was not just because she and I broke up. Alot of other stuff happened between her and some of the
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!2 years 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:

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.
Protect the past because it can't protect itself.

If you are able to understand German you can go to my Animexx weblog and read it there :3 Unfortunately dA doesn't support embedding my pics into the text so I had to put them directly over/under the text. Sorry for that!
I'm just showing you what works for me, so this is a "you can try this" and not a "this is the only way you can do it".
As you might know wigs are made out of plastic fibers. Plastic is a heat bendable material, so this is the essence of the both methods I will show you. Styling your wig with heat will also work for curling it, making spikes and so on. Please be careful whenev

Onward to 2013 my steed!
I would first like to take a moment,
and congratulation everyone for surviving the end of the world.
give yourselves a pat on the back,
2012 was sort of a foggy blur,
it seems like such a long year,
but I can't recall anything 'major' that happened,
so I'm just going to call it a good year and move on, haha.
2013 will be a very different year,
The year of Finland Adventure!
There was a lot of stress leading up to it,
but now that I'm here,
in my little shared flat in Helsinki,
it seems pretty relaxing :'D
I've already meet some awesome people from all over the world,
and we have so many events,

The Power of MagicIt's past 3am, and I can't sleep.The Power of Magic3 years ago in Personal More Like This
-------The Power of Magic-------
When I was a kid, one of the greatest things possible to witness was magic. To me, my dad was a magician, no doubt about it. He could make coins appear from pockets and behind ears. He could guess what card you or your friend chose. He could blow cigarette smoke from his ears.
Actually, that last one was due to having punctured ear drums, so wasn't really magic... but you get what I mean.
Of course, now that I'm older, I know all these tricks myself. They're the easiest ones in the book. I've learned them myself, and occasionally blow the minds of kids who are now at the age I once was when I was being amazed by this apparent 'magic'.
That experience, of seeing something you believe to be utterly impossible become possible, is amazing. It's the reason I love illusionists and magicians, and the reason I've spent most of this insomniatic evening watching videos of Dynamo the magician.

After AbunaiconWhat a weekend.After Abunaicon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kelly and I are finally back home after a very early flight back to London. I have to say, it was all worth it.
Abunaicon was truly fantastic! It was great meeting some of our followers from the Netherlands and pretty much everyone we met was just lovely!
It was a great test run for Gambit (my sclera contacts arrive tomorrow!!) and I've now decided to make a Human!Wheatley cosplay. Ha ha! It will be fun to be an idiotic character again.
Highlights of Abunaicon:
*Judging the Eurocosplay.
*Being chased by Batman.
*Creating world domination plans with the Joker and Harley while dressed as Loki.
*Invading panels and generally being mental.
*Killing Coulson over and over and over and OVER again!
*Squaring off to a certain Hawkeye everytime I saw her.
*ALL THE DESSERTS!!!
*Being told by four people that I look like Tom Hiddleston.
Twas an AMAZING weekend just so tiring. Phew! I really hope we can come back next year and share in all the fun. Now to plan for Alcon!

Arcade Con 2013 ReviewWe arrived back from Arcade Con on Wednesday and things since then have been a little turbulent here at home :S However thankfully our trip to Ireland was nothing short of amazing which offsets all the crap we're dealing with right now XD Thank you to the Arcade Con staff and attendees for making this such an amazing con.

The staff really amazed me at this con. They were attentive, helpful, kind, and always offering to get us drinks and just generally working hard to make everyone run smoothly. They worked tirelessly and it really showed in the calibre of the con.
All the people we met were so kind and easy to talk to. We'd meet someone once and after that we'd see them around and we'd wave and chat if there was time and before I knew it I was thousands of miles from home but feeling like I w

Dear people in front of me, meandering down the isle of taco seasoning. Get out of the way. I want the cheapest, mild seasoning, and you are in the way. All of the packets contain the EXACT same thing, so stop staring at them like they are precious jewels and you must find the right one before proposing to your girlfriend.
Couples. It's not cute to walk down isles holding the same basket while giggling and not buying anything. Go get your condoms and get out.
To the store itself, STOP MOVING EVERYTHING! I know what I want, and this isn't an easter egg hunt. I'm paying you for the things I'm buying, and I want to buy them as soon as possible.
To moms/parents/old people. YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO DOWN EVERY ISLE! You do not need a item from every single isl
