LR:FFXIII Demo Report (part 1)The Final Fantasy XIII series owes a lot of its success to the character Lightning, according to series producer Yoshinori Kitase.LR:FFXIII Demo Report (part 1) in Personal More Like This
Her distinctive look has brought about an opportunity for not only a closing chapter to her saga, but also a brand new game in a brand new world. With this new gameplay experience, both Yoshinori Kitase and Director Motomu Toriyama hope to satisfy fans and maybe newcomers alike.
Following the official reveal trailer this past December, Square Enix invited a select bunch of press to get an early look at the game proper. Not only was I treated to an unfinished version of the game – said to be the earliest build of a Final Fantasy ever shown publicly – I was able to get an understanding of what the developers are trying to aim for.
The presentation began with a look at the familiar Jump Festa trailer, although slightly longer with a few extended scenes. While there are a few extra glimpses of the city Luxerion, the most notable addition is the appe

The third game is titled, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Lightning is the sole character, so the entire game will revolve around her.

After high level introductions to the game from Motomu Toriyama, Yuji Abe, and Isamu Kamikokuryo, which you can see here (http://andriasang.com/con2jl/ffxiii_lightning_videos/), Square Enix turned off the cameras, told everyone in the audience to do the same, then showed a first trailer. This was followed by a gameplay demonstration.
The trailer provided an introduction to the game's world and its time progression system. One sequence showed a time counter: "00/02:54:23." Famitsu speculates that by clearing quests, you can increase this timer.
Another sequence showed Lightning, dressed in a new outfit, in pursuit of the criminal in a murder incident. She pursues a group of suspicious people, making use of cover actions -- hiding behind walls, for instance. During the presentation, Toriyama explained that

It is uniquely completely immersive in life— step out into the streets— in which the moment of artistic epiphany can never be guessed at until it suddenly happens. When it is properly mastered, it is as pure as the dawn of each new day, as true as the living organism of a teeming street scene catching a breath as one.

It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel.

Weird DreamSo I had this weird/awesome dream last night, here's what happened:Weird Dream in Personal More Like This
I was in some kind of concert area place, but everyone was waiting for the event to start. I had no idea what it was, but I was hoping it was Hollywood Undead or Linkin Park or something cool like that. The setup was more like a movie theater, but the stage was like something you'd see at a concert. So I'm there alone, just waiting for the damn thing to start or figure out what the hell it was.
Then someone came by and sat next to me, some stranger. I didn't acknowledge or greet him, because you know, kind of antisocial with things like that. Just sitting there waiting for the thing to start. Some time passes by and my eyes started to wander. I noticed the guy sitting next to me has some awesome tattoos, they looked just like the one's that Xavier has, as in the serpent like dragon winding down his arm.
So I'm like "Hey, I like your tattoos dude." And he's like "Thanks." and then that voice, sounds so familiar. And I l
Today is Kage's half birthday XDYeah, today Kagekao is half a year old, yay! -hands Kage half a bottle of wine and half a cake-Today is Kage's half birthday XD in Personal More Like This
Because you know, I'm to impatient to wait another six months. But, Kagekao was created on 12/29/12.
And look where he is now, so popular ;~; I'm so proud of my little Kage-sama. He used to be just a little background character who I had to explain was my OC in every pic he appeared in, and how he has his own group, tons of fangirls, tons of fanart, and all the wine he can drink because he stole my f-!#ing key! -whacks Kage over the head-
Also I was looking into it, Xavier's birthday is Nov 25 (that's when the OC who he is based on was created), Zehnder is Feb 24 (Not the day he first appeared nameless, but the day he was named and given a personality), Zippers is March 10 (not the day of his first DA appearance but the day of his first sketch), and I'm too lazy to go in to the others' birthdays.
And on a random note. I've been staring at this adorable gif I made a while back :thumb323066551
Random Thought: Liu, Dead or Alive?Dead.Random Thought: Liu, Dead or Alive? in Personal More Like This
BUT Before I go into my analysis of why he is dead; I want to add something to my last Random Thought analysis thingy on Slenders and Shinigami (http://gingaakam.deviantart.com/journal/Random-though-Slenders-and-Shinigami-384569832 )
I stated that "I'm not sure if a human can become a slender; as I'm pretty sure slenders are born, not made from a transition. " BUT I had forgotten all about Sexual Offenderman (Sorry Smexy) and how he was once a human who was turned into a slender by Splendorman. And I was talking with someone on this topic as well. So it seems that the ways that slenders reproduce is either from breeding or slenders turning humans into slenders. However it seems that there are less female slenders than male slenders, which would reduce the likelihood of reproducing that way, and not all of them want to have kids. And there are probably only a few slenders who know the secret to making a human a slender, because if they al

I got so stressed that I snapped in my dream.
Oh damn, it was one of those earthquake moments where everything builds up and you explode. Yeah.
I get scary when that happens to me. I think what happened was I was at some sort of party and someone cut one of my claws nails when I wasn't looking and oh damn I got pissed off (do you have any idea how long it takes to grow these claws I broke one like two months ago and it's still catching up to the rest even with trimming). I kicked him in the crotch like five times. And I was wearing heels. HEELS. AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA. yes I know I was fabulous
Seriously though I know I was scary because I was going off just insane. And I KNOW I was scary because Zehnder was there with me. And I scared him. Yeah I scared Zehnder because I was so damn pissed off.
He's like twice my height and he just looked down at me like 'Y-you wanna go kill someone . . ?'
Thanks Zehndy I love ya bro XD

PE: Discussion - What is handmade to you?Browsing the artisan crafts gallery there's one word I see popping often: "handmade" or "100% handmade". In a world full of mass produced objects and faceless corporations, crafters strive to return the magic and beauty of handmade objects to the world; some buyers show a great appreciation for handmade products, they will go great lengths to find them and are willing to pay a bit more for something that was made with love instead of sweat.PE: Discussion - What is handmade to you? in Art Features More Like This
However I also see the word handmade being misused. I'm not talking about mass producers or resellers incorrectly labeling their work as handmade to cheat buyers, which is a serious problem on its own. I'm talking about people buying premades, molds, cabochons, or complete pieces, doing some minimal work to it and later calling it "100% handmade". And accepting full praise - and price $$ - for it.
I've seen this so much that I've begun to doubt my own definition and wonder what other people consider to be handmade, so I'm reaching out to you, my fel
Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty EditionToday, March 1st is Self-Harm Awareness Day, but I think it deserves more than a day. I won't say much about it because other people have already published wonderful articles about it, I recommend that you read NicBelroque's Fears vs Dreams and Beccalicious' Recovery, both contain a lot of wonderful information and share touching experiences.Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty Edition in Art Features More Like This
What I can tell you is this: self-harm is a problem that is often not recognized. It takes many forms, forms that are not recognized even by the person committing it. Self-harm is always a problem, even if you think you have it under control or that it's not serious, it is. If you are currently committing any form of self-harm, or if you suspect anyone else is, reach out for help. Both articles contain links and resources to guide you, and I'm here to talk :iconheartorangeplz:.

Okay. It's Sunday. But I've promised to provide you with some new tutorial today also! *grin*
SO! HOW 'BOUT A WIG HEAD TUTORIAL ;D ESPECIALLY FOR YOU MY BIG HEADED FRIENDS!
Actually... I just hate all the wig heads for sale. My head size is 62cm. So you can believe how well those 55cm wig heads fit me.
I even have some problems with all the wigs! I always have to cut off all the adjustable size wraps! ;__; And even then they are too small for me!
Well, my solution for the problem is this!
With only 10 euros! Yeah, around 15 dollars you can make your OWN wig head.
Which is exactly the same shape as your own head.
So you can actually style your wig only with this! No need to put it on and cut trough a mirror anymore! ^^
We all have a different face. Eyes, nose, lips. They are all in different places!
That's why I really recommend to make your own wig head. To get the best results in wig styling!~
Here ya go!
First! You need a packet of straws, a packet of cling film and one who

If you do not know what I speak about, check this journal, please!
Two ZOO Brno's employees answered my question about wolves and one of them was a zoologist, so I think we can consider that reply trustworthy.
So: as you probably already know, my beloved Atila, famous alpha wolf from ZOO Brno, died. He died of old age (10 years). His death is the cause of the current bad state of other wolves. The death of the alpha is followed with a lot of stress, as the hierarchy of the pack is completely crushed and in terrible mess.

First of all, kiriban (766 666) is VERY close!
At second, Brno's females, Alex and Clair, are in heat now. I went to the ZOO to take some photos - because of mating season, wolves were very excited and active. I had a great chance to watch their fantastic and natural behavior, which included gentle touches, aggresivity (not between alphas and beta, but younger wolves were somehow excited) and mating itself. It was just incredible to observe so intimate moments of the lives of wolves. Thanks to winter, I was totally alone with them - only me and wolves. I would like to share some shots I took - sorry for lower quality, the weather was cloudy and as you can imagine, wolves were moving a lot. Although I took some photos of mating itself, I do not want to post such shots. Not to offend some of my watchers (mating and also eating are absolutely natural for animals ) but to somehow respect privacy of the wolves

Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning)Hi,Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning) in Personal More Like This
today it was the worst ZOO visit ever.
This spring I noticed that the molting (process of loosing the thick winter fur and having just much shorter summer fur) of the wolves is very different from the molting I witnessed during the last years. The wolves looked ill, like having scabs on their faces and bodies.
It made me nervous, so I was curious about my today's visit. I planned to shoot baby wolves.
What I saw shocked me.
ALL the pack members seem to have some skin problems. Less or more serious, all of them are effected, showing symptoms. I do not know if it is mange or so, but it looks horrible. Two wolves (and I am VERY afraid the most ill one is Atila) have almost bare bodies, they lost almost all the fur. All of them keep scratching. What a horrible, horrible sight, I almost cried there even the tiny puppy is ill, it was born just few weeks ago, but I see its legs show the signs of the same illness.
I hope the vets will find the cure.
I am soooo down since I saw them toda

First of all, let me warn you that by the end of this journal entry, you may find yourself sick of my face. (If you aren't already.) I'll be using mostly myself as an example for the things I'm going to discuss, because I'm the only person I can poke fun at without restrictions.
I get asked a lot of questions about these cosplay photos that most of you have come to know me for. Sometimes it's about the techniques we use, requests for tips and advice for other people who want to do something similar. Other times, the comments come from people who aren't familiar with cosplay, but are curious about it and are interested to know more. So I thought of making this li
On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a
Before Cosplay Makeup: Basic Skincare!Before I write about cosplay makeup, I figured I should discuss some skincare basics. I feel it's important to know how to take care of your skin before you start putting gunk on it! This is really very basic so I think those of you with your own regimens already might be bored by it! But here it goes!Before Cosplay Makeup: Basic Skincare! in Personal More Like This
I'm not an awesome guru wizard thing, but I'll just share some general concepts and products that work for me. It's different for everybody, but I hope this will be helpful! For your sreference, my skin type is combination: normal to dry with an oily nose. Hahah! Not my T-zone, just my nose!
Recently, my male friends had gotten very interested in makeup for cosplay and asked me for tips on how to go about it. (I think this was fueled by Kaname's visit to our country for Cosplay Mania '12, and they saw how beautiful he looks. ) I decided to ask them about their skincare regimen to figure out what products might work for their skin type.
When I asked what they wash their face w

In this post, I'll get into how I did each one!
Intro, and some bad old pictures
For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face?
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al
Long rant is loooooooooooooooooooooooooooongANGST FOR THE LULZLong rant is loooooooooooooooooooooooooooong in Personal More Like This
Considering it's something people do for recreation, there sure is a lot of drama surrounding cosplay circles. Come on, you guys. It is NOT serious fucking business. Pardon my ranting, but there are things that have been bothering me for a while now, and I guess I just need to get them off my chest.
Popularity MY ASS
Here's a touchy topic - popularity on deviantART. I've always been turned off by the fact that there's a Popular section up on the front page. But maybe that just wasn't the best word choice for it. The dictionary definition seems appropriate enough, but stigma for that term does exist. You know, the way it's used in mass media; reflecting the culture of school kids who create unnecessary hierarchy amongst themselves, which leads to discrimination. There's the "A Group", the popular kids.
Speaking from the perspective of a Visual Communication student, it is actually interesting to see what kinds of art cater to the majority of the populati
