City of AngelsI just finished watching the official music video for City of Angels, and I think it made me realize that... I don't think I could ever elaborate, or find enough words or share my love for this band enough, to explain just how much they have done for me. And its so strange because, me being a person that has never had the opportunity to shake Jared, Shannon, or Tomos hand and just say thank you from the bottom of my heart,City of Angels6 months ago in Personal More Like This
well, I sure owe a HUGE part of my life, and I owe all of who I am to them, for not even having the opportunity to say, Hi. My name is Allison, You guys are my heroes, and you've made every dream that I've ever had possible, just because you believed in me, without even knowing me. The closest friends that I've ever had, our bond came to us through this band, and when I was in middle school and felt worthless, I discovered this band if almost by fate, or destiny, and their music, and this family, the echelon, and the band themselves, helped me realize that I don't ha

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

Hot summer convention with long sleeves leather jacket! What am I thinking?! But yeah, that is how much I love Shingeki no Kyojin. You can probably tell from my latest poll that I've jumped into the Shingeki no Kyojin bandwagon. Despite my minimal experience in props making, I decided to try building the 3D Maneuver Gear myself. It was quite a learning experience. I had never thought that props could be made primarily out of foam boards and foam sheets. It was very fun for the most part. It feels like such an accomplishment when everything is all set and done! Here are some of the progress pictures:
I'm in the middle of a move so this past month has been very crazy. I never realized I had so many stuff/junk in my apartment until I actually had to go through them. Most of my costumes are in storage now that is why I won't be bringing the same amount of costumes I brought to Katsucon (I think that was 6?). The Recon Co

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.

OMG! The tears are already coming! :iconcryforeverplz: SO HEART WARMING!!! Dx
P.S: Hey guys, just wanted to mention that I found another video, sadly it isn't the Frankenweenie tale Edgar, Bob, and Toshiaki (You know, since Disney doesn't allow martians in their site. >:I ) Anyways, recently found the behind the scene video, the audio and quality are terrible but it is still watchable. The reason why I am not going to link it here is because the video contains A LOT of new footage, possibly spoiling the film a bit. If you are curious on it I can give you the link on your notes if you want.

FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weaponEdit: Many of you asked for a transformation vid. So, I made this video clip. Enjoy!FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weapon1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In my former journal I asked if you would like for me to explain how my Starseeker weapon was made. Since there were quite some people that would like me to do so, I decided to make this FAQ journal. So, I hope I'l answer some questions you might have about this curious weapon and I hope I can explain it well enough for you all to understand.
Note that I made the weapon a couple of months ago and I don't remember everything very clear of the making of it. But, I'll do my best.
So, first things first: The Starseeker
Serah's weapon is quite the interesting one. This because it's a transformable one just like her sister's, Lightning. Nonetheless, it's a transformable one from bow to blade, which original form is none other than the cute moogle companion, Mog.
Of course, Final Fantasy is all about 'Fantasy', so making an exact workin

I feel like it's time to say goodbye.
Lately nothing is working for me and I've come to realise just how annoying and frustration it is to work out a plot, type it up and finish off.
It's taking up all of my mind and I just can't stand it anymore.
I'm very sorry about those people who requested things from me lately and the kind people who entered my contest, but I can't do this anymore.
I'm going to deactivate in a couple of days when I've finished saying goodbye to people.
You've all been incredibly kind and wonderful people and I'm sorry to say I'll probably never speak to you all again.
....... April Fools! ;D
Couldn't resist honestly! Sorry if I've pissed someone off by doing this, but hey I've never pranked someone in my entire life before, so I thought why not now? ^^

And now I want to show you the first results
We started with the hilt. We drew the shape of it on big wood and then sawed it out.
Akane is sawing out with a big saw^^
And after grinding...
...it looked like this!
And then the same procedure with smaller wood for the blade of sword.
And tadaaa, in the end we had two major parts of the whole keyblade.
