FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weaponEdit: Many of you asked for a transformation vid. So, I made this video clip. Enjoy!FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weapon2 years 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

CharismaI just read this and I think it is so true:Charisma2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the 10 habits of remarkably charismatic people:
1. They listen way more than they talk.
Ask questions. Maintain eye contact. Smile. Frown. Nod. Respond--not so much verbally, but nonverbally.
That's all it takes to show the other person they're important.
Then when you do speak, don't offer advice unless you're asked. Listening shows you care a lot more than offering advice, because when you offer advice in most cases you make the conversation about you, not them.
Don't believe me? Who is "Here's what I would do..." about: you or the other person?
Only speak when you have something important to say--and always define important as what matters to the other person, not to you.
2. They don't practice selective hearing.
Some people--I guarantee you know people like this--are incapable of hearing anything said by the people they feel are somehow beneath them.
Sure, you speak to them, but that particular falling tree doesn't make a sound i

The Myth of TalentThe Myth of TalentThe Myth of Talent6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
If there's one comment that is made more often than any other on any decent piece of artwork it's "you're so talented."
It's also the one [positively intended] comment I've seen the most artists bristle at, sometimes even retort. For some of us, it's a pet hate. Why?
We know it's meant as a compliment, so we smile and say thank you and try to resist the urge to insist that 'talent' is the biggest myth there is. Not only is it a myth, at its worst the use of the word is potentially destructive to the artistic community.
What's so wrong with the word 'talent'?
You might not realise it, but calling someone talented can often feel like a backhanded compliment. No skilled artist woke up one day just being able to do what they can do. We were all born completely unable to do just about anything useful. But through daily practise we learned how to use our limbs for motility, our voices for words, an

Website/Browser Reference Sheets for Cosplaying!I usually don't write journals, but I thought I'd give it a go! To any who reads this...I remember a few wanted to cosplay as the website/browser dudes. I uploaded pretty much all the reference sheets for each guys (except for DA, I put him on here....just cuz ><) on my Tumblr if you need a more detailed look of the clothes. I uploaded them based off the asks I got in my inbox. I have plans for other websites to create as well. Pinterest will definitely be next because someone requested it for a cosplay :> So stay tune for that!

Derpy is now pretty officially safe and sound, both at Hasbro and We Love Fine. Just take a look RIGHT HERE, RIGHT HERE, and RIGHT HERE.
Congratulations everyone and thank you for your support over the past several days.
At this point, Hasbro is trying very hard to come up with a policy for dealing with our not-so-little community. The best thing folks can do now is give them some breathing room. So for now, no more calls or emails. Let's have faith they are going to do right by us. Now, more than ever before, the powers-that-be are aware of the size and buying power of our community. I think we're going to see very good things from them in the near fu

* Even before his birth, the future leader of North Korea was triggering miracles. Official biographers say his birth in a cabin on the slopes of Baekdu Mountain in February 1942 was foretold by a swallow and heralded by a double rainbow. When he was born, a new star appeared in the night sky.
* The first time he picked up a golf club, in 1994, Kim reportedly shot a 38-under par round on North Korea's only golf course, including 11 holes-in-one. He then decided to retire from the sport for ever.
* Kim has the ability to alter the weather simply through the power of thought.
* The fledgling leader was a genius as an infant, with official North Korean biographies stating that he had learned to walk at just 3 weeks and was talking at 8 weeks.
* As a junior high school pupil in Pyongyang, he corrected and chasti

other than that the admins of our group are having a hard time, a lot of admins have obligations for the time being or are absent for a while to sort a few things out. Because of this, and i think a lot of you have noticed, it's taking us a lot longer than usual to accept and sort all your submissions. If any of you feel like helping us out that would be wonderful. interested? simply send us a note ^^.
