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 Émeraude 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
Upcoming Contest! *Please Read*I'm in the process of orchestrating a contest for all you lovelies right now, that should be ready to present in a month or so.Upcoming Contest! *Please Read*2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This contest is a :#DoctorWhoOCs: contest, for Doctor Who OC's, you must be a member to participate.
The theme "Original Character Development".
Have a old character you've been looking to revamp? Recently realized your character is a "Mary-Sue"? Have a character you haven't put on paper yet, and is still siting in your head like brain crack? Haven't even come up with an OC yet, but are looking to?
Perfection. This contest is for you!
Or consider creating a "Red Shirt" or something similar.Minor characters need love too, and the small ones are easy to have fun with since they don't usually pertain to the big picture story!
Do me a favor and :iconfavoriteplz: Fave :iconfavoriteplz: this journal so I know you are interested! Once the rules are out, I will provide special notice to the deviants who fave this journal, as well as writing a g
COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!Hi guys!! Thank you as always to all watchers and everyone who faves and comments - I'm so sorry I don't have much time these days to reply to everything, but I definitely do read and appreciate them all!COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!
I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^ That said, hope you enjoy! *chu*
Any questions please feel free to ask!

sry for being so late with updating you with my latest BIG project.
I'm working on this costume since January and finally I see the end of the long tunnel coming XD.
I wanna show you my now finished Saber Gift Figure armor!
If you don't know that version, you can see the reference here ---> http://www.ncsx.com/2009/012609/fate_stay_saber_gift.htm
If you like what you'll see please visit my facebook artist page as well ;D. There are always ALL progress photos form the stuff I am working on ^.^ ->>> http://facebook.com/calssara.cosplay
well let's start with the raw armor parts, completely unpainted.
I used WOBLAS FINEST ART as my material. It's a thermoplastic material with a mix out of plastic and wood. It's close to Wonderflex, but thicker, more durable and it's easier to make round shapes l shoulders, knees and chest plates. You can also melt the material together and use it as thermoplastic modeling clay!
This is my VERY first armor and even a bloody begin

Autocomplete for Mentions
We've just launched an addition to the Mentions feature that makes interaction easier than ever!
When using @ to Mention a deviant or Group, a list will now appear in a menu while you type that includes deviants and Groups you +Watch, deviants who have already commented in the conversation, as well as deviants who have the exact username that you have already typed in, if applicable. This addition makes conversation more dynamic than ever, as communication becomes even easier.
Please note that this feature is only available on places where the "Add Media" button is available (comments, deviation descriptions, Journals, etc.).
The Message Center counter would consistently show one extra message. Fixed by shadowhand

PE: Watercolour and saltWatercolour and saltPE: Watercolour and salt9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Watercolour painting provides us with fantastic possibilities to create various textures. They can be achieved in many different ways with use of many different side components and equipment - in this article, I'll focus on salt textures. It usually takes time to get a handle of it - like everything else - but the outcome is definitely worth it.
Water and pigment
The three factors that determine the effects are the amount of water, amount of pigment and amount of salt, with the two first being the harder part. The more water you use, the more time it takes for the paint to dry and the more time the salt has to work - therefore the pigment will be pushed further away and you'll get bigger, paler spots between darker pigment borders. Less water will get you smaller, star-like

1. I hope you accept your art the way it is more.

7. I hope that when you see a beautiful drawing, it inspires you to try harder rather than quit.
8. I hope you don't cringe when you stumble on your old art and instead be amazed at how much you improved.

The New Profile TabsAs part of an initiative to make deviantART more user-friendly and clearer, tabs on the Profile Page have received a visual and functional uplift!The New Profile Tabs2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The tabs on Profile Pages (Gallery, Prints, Favourites, and Journal) have been visually improved for consistency, cleanliness, and an overall up to date appearance. Navigation elements have been moved to the left column of the page, and the placement of major elements of each tab have been aligned so that the transition from one tab of one's Profile to another is more smooth, natural, and clean.
In addition, when viewing tabs of your own Profile, you can easily add to that tab! The Gallery tab prompts you to submit artwork, the Prints tab prompts you to submit a Print, and the Journal tab prompts you to write a Journal entry!
