Mainly it would result in 100% more videos for you guys, as well as being able to branch out and really dedicate time in production and editing.
This is something I've been talking about with Kelly for a while now, and I have recently (after some serious talk) gained my mothers support in the venture.
However, I can't do it for free. This is where you guys come in.

2) Tell your friends about our shows, make your own videos talking about the shows. Do journals and tumblr blogs; anything to get the Parlé name out there and appealing to more people. The more people we get; the more likely this will happen.

PE: How to Make the Most of Your Lit on dALit Basics WeekPE: How to Make the Most of Your Lit on dA10 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
It goes without saying that being noticed on dA as an artist isn't easy. Add in the fact that you're submitting literature to a predominantly visual arts site and you have an even lower chance of being noticed. Your friendly Literature Community Volunteers do their best to feature an array of poetry and prose, but even that is only a single day feature of ONE of your deviations. Getting a following or even just getting deviants to read your lit and give feedback is hard work. But you'll see a common denominator amongst those deviants that have made it.
It's community involvement. You shouldn't expect to receive if you're not willing to give. But how exactly can accomplish that? Is going to random Lit Groups and leaving critique on a dozen or so deviations a week enough? Probably not. Will participating in group challenges, prompts and contests get you noticed? Not by itself. What if you run a weekly or bi-weekly feature article of Literature on dA? Still, no.

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!!!

Summer Cons Recap, Aki Con and Selling More ThingsWell, what can I say? Summer is over and I have no idea where it went lolSummer Cons Recap, Aki Con and Selling More Things3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There were three conventions for me this summer. They all happen to be back to back so it was a pretty crazy month.
First was Anime Revolution. It was a ton of fun! AR really impressed me with it being a first year convention. It was very well run and the staff were incredible! They were so helpful and extremely accommodating. There was a slight hiccup when AR lost the second panel room last minute, but they knew that was an issue and apologized for it. I'm really looking forward to next year and I can't wait to see what AR brings!
Highlight of the con? Meeting Doug Walker (aka ThatGuyWithGlasses/Nostalgic Critic)
Cosplay line up:
Tira Misu from Sorcerer Hunters
Fire Nation Katara from Avatar: The Last Airbender
Ventus from Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep
Marik from Yu-Gi-Oh
Second was Cos & Effect. This con was a bit of a disappointment. That's pretty much all I'm going to say about it

so that is pretty sweet!

♦ I am not taking point commissions. I need money, not points. Sorry.
♦ I will need the receive the payment before I start the commission. I may be a little slow confirming I've received the money, though generally if you say you have sent it I'll likely believe you.
♦ Unless otherwise stated commissions are always open! Along with that there is no limit to how many I take at a time.
♦ Please do not ask for things I'm not comfortable with doing. This is the usual things people say they will not draw (nudity, certain levels of gore, etc).
♦ All prices (with the exception of animated GIF images) are per character. If you would like to include two characters in a picture the price is doubled, three characters the price is tripled, etc.

Selling MORE cosplayHi friends,Selling MORE cosplay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've just too much stuff lying around, so I thought about selling again a few things I probably won't wear anymore.
If you're interested in any of them, feel free to send me a note!
SHIPPING: The shipping costs depend on where you live. They'll always be added to the cosplay's price, but of course I don't know yet how much the shipping will cost in any case. I'll keep them as low for you as possible. I ship worldwide!
SIZES: All sizes are Small / EUR: 34 / 36
PRICES: All prices are what I had to spend on the materials, nothing is added for the tailoring because I wore them before. In some cases it's even less than the material costs. Please respect the prices, I only used the best suitable fabrics so they're often not the cheapest ones. But if you want a cosplay really badly but you can only pay a little less than the price, we can talk about it. I hope that's ok for you!

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
