After serveral requests, I decided to upload a tutorial for my absinthe corset today. As you can see I used the same pattern for my steampunk corset dress Mademoiselle …meraude Steam.
This tutorial shows an elaborate corset. Patterns can be found on the Internet at Burda / Simplicity or even online shops about historical patterns and corsets.
Many steps can be used for a simple corsage. The steps

Cosplay photo blog for ToyCon 2013!ToyCon 2013!Cosplay photo blog for ToyCon 2013!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So we went to Toycon last Saturday and as usual I... didn't really get to take pictures of toys and stuff. It was so crowded around the merchandise hall that I couldn't stop and take photos because people were constantly threading through and shoving. It was like a river of people with an actual current, hahah! Sometimes I'd find a friend to chat with but we'd eventually be pulled apart by the tide, it was kind of funny.
I wanted to wear something simple and comfortable so I posted on my Facebook that I would wear my old Ichigo cosplay in his Karakura High uniform. The Bleach manga is so crazy now that it just made me miss the days when Bleach was simple.
I think this is the last decent picture of myself that I have wearing this, and it was taken ages ago.
And here it is on me again, with a new wig, better contact lenses, better wig styling and cosplay makeup skills (somewhat), and Kon plush that was give

Devious Journal EntryKatsucon was out of this world! I had an amazing time and can not thank Christine and Grig enough for inviting me out for the event this year. I don't even know where to begin! The Gaylod Hotel was gorgeous and so nice to the attendees, the World Cosplay Summit was hosting the US Preliminaries during Katsucon, photograpghers from around the county (and other countries) flocked to the convention to take video and still images, and Katsucon wouldn't be complete without the thousands of amazing cosplayers who brought such beautiful costumes to wear.Devious Journal Entry4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Hello fellow D.Gray-man fans
The wait is almost over! The spoilers are already available on the internet as I'm typing this, so we should be able to read the full chapter within a week or so. Get your weapons ready regardless of wether you're a †sympathiser of the Black Order, the Millennium Earl†or the third faction! The battle will continue shortly!
Sorry for the wait, but it seems that things aren't going very smoothly regarding the scanlations of D.gray-man. ImperialScans, who've been scanlating the last chapters have said on their facebook page that they're no longer scanlating DGM. But, no worries! We (well, not me) have found an English translation which you can read here:
We'll keep an eye on the major manga sites to see when newer/better translations are available and put them in this journal. You can always help us by †providing links to DGM chapters >216 in

Your personality type: INFP (Turbulent variant).INFP personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, INFPs have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine. Comprising just 4.5% of the population, the risk of feeling misunderstood is unfortunately high for this personality type – but when they find like-minded people to spend their time with, they’ll truly feel at home.Your personality type: INFP (Turbulent variant).1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Being a part of the Diplomat (NF) personality group, INFPs are guided by their principles, rather than by logic (Analysts), excitement (Explorers), or tradition (Sentinels). When deciding how to move forward, they will look to honor, beauty, morality and virtue – they are led by the purity of their intent. INFPs are proud of this quality, and rightly so, but not everyone understands the drive behind these feelings, and it can lead to isolation.
If INFPs are not careful they can lose t
Six Word Story Contest - 7 3 Month Subs to be won!...and the winners are announced here!Six Word Story Contest - 7 3 Month Subs to be won!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
So getting to the point of this article, we are kickstarting this year with a six word story contest! We have some awesome prizes and hopefully enough freedom for you to enjoy yourselves too! Please support the contest and

So when I took a quick scroll through my message center today I noticed there sure where a lot of senior members that messaged me since the last time I checked. Took me a while to notice that it was actually my username that had the icon -- and that name sure is all over the place in my own message center (for those that are wondering; I wasn't fully awake yet).
Seems like I've been awarded senior membership!
Which is, according to descriptions, something more or less similar to winning a community award. In the sense that you can't buy one and the only way to get one is to get awarded one by DeviantArt.
The reasons of why I got such an award are pretty much shrouded in mystery (and that's

Hi Folks, it's been a while since I took some time to discuss some interesting subjects related to anime, so I been thinking in one I always wanted to talk and that was Hollywood trying to adapt Animes into Live action films.....and let's face it, so far the track record of Hollywood doing this is very....very BAD. But not only Hollywood, even Japan have some issues trying to adapt their own anime franchise into movies, that track record is neither too good, there maybe some exceptions like the first Rurouni Kenshin film
