AFest 2014 plans!I'm attending AFest on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, but not for the whole day (since we're bringing the kid along).
Friday: Lady White Mage
Saturday: Cinderella (NEW!)
Sunday: not sure yet, maybe Twilight Sparkle
AKon 2014 prep!Less than 2 weeks til A-Kon! Really looking forward to the con this year, especially since the wonderful grandparents are going to be watching my baby boy. My newest cosplay is nearing completion and I'm very excited about debuting new stuff.
Tentative cosplay plans:
• Thursday - original formal version of Franziska von Karma for the masquerade ball
• Friday morning, Saturday morning/afternoon - Lady White Mage - new costume inspired by the classic Final Fantasy job class and sort of a Renaissance/Game of Thrones regal gown. The dress is complete, and now I'm working on the light-up healing staff. Progress pix on my Facebook page.
• Friday evening - Rainbow Brite (with new legwarmers)
• Saturday evening - Kris from Pokemon (possibly a Pokemon Sulfur cosplay reunion with Bobble head Nurse Joy, James, and Pyramid Head)
• Sunday - black Team Rocket dress

On hiatus for a whileI may not be updating DA for a while. Still planning to attend some conventions next year, but it will definitely be a new experience.

Post All-Con, orders reopenedI got to debut my 10th Doctor costume at All-Con this past weekend, and it was so much fun! I've done crossplays before, but not in a while (and rarely this much fun). It was surprising how many people didn't realize it was ME in the costume, even though I've worn short wigs before. Kind of amusing to walk up to people I've known for years and they have NO IDEA. :3
Now that All-Con is over, my next costume on deck is Princess Rosalina from Super Mario Galaxy. I've had the fabric for years, and the wig for awhile as well, but I actually need to make the costume and accessories (and style the wig). It was planned for last AFest, but then the MLP wedding episodes happened and I had to make Cadance instead. ^^
I wound up with a bunch of conventions for this year due to some very fortunate circumstances.
- Louisianime (cosplay guest)
- SGC (free passes won at Video Games Live concert)
- WhoFest (a local Doctor Who con? YES.)
Sadly I'll have to ski
Commissions temporarily closedWe have some pending orders to finish, a convention in 2 weeks, and some real life stuff going on, so plush commissions are temporarily closed. I'll post another journal when they're open again (and we'll have filly ponies available to order then, too!)

2013 Cosplay Plans!Here are my cosplay plans for 2013!
10th Doctor - Doctor Who (Brown suit version: actually found the perfect fabric with the blue pinstripes and all at a fabric warehouse. Never thought I would ever find it.)
"Souffle Girl" Oswin Oswald - Doctor Who (A bit of a twist on her character, but if you've seen her episode, "Asylum of the Daleks", you'll get the joke.)
Princess Rosalina - Super Mario Galaxy (I've had this fabric and wig components for a while now, and actually planned to make this costume for last AFest. But then Princess Cadance happened instead. ^^)
Not a lot of conventions planned for this year:
Sadly I will probably miss AFest and Brony Fan Fair this year, but hopefully will be back for 2014.

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!
Regular Payments / ABs
Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy
Close To You - Lyrics - Sans VersionTHE FLOWERS OF THE NEW AND LAUGHTER OF THE PAST,
THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL LIKE YOU, BEAUTY UNSURPASSED!
GONE WITH A WHISPER, YOU FALL ASLEEP LIKE DEATH,
BREAKING THROUGH THE EARTH, YOUR SMILE SHINES AGAIN!
MY EMPTY GRATITUDE, ANOTHER EMPTY THANK YOU,
I FINALLY LEARNED REGRET, FROM WORDS I'VE ALWAYS SAID.
NEVER MEANT TO SPEAK TO HURT, YET IT HURT TO PUT IN WORDS,
GOODBYE WHEREVER YOU ARE, GOODBYE UNBROKEN HEART.
IN TRUTH I WANT TO FEEL, THE TRUTH I WANT TO SEE,
I'M TRYING TO EMBRACE YOUR DRIFTING HEART AND SMILE!
WHENEVER I BEGIN TO FEEL THE BURNING TEARS OVERFLOWING FROM MY EYES,
I KEEP ON LOOKING FORWARD AT YOU, HOPING THAT YOUR LIGHT WILL NEVER PASS ME BY!
I WONDER WHAT THE STARS THAT SPARKLE IN YOUR EYES ARE HIDING FROM MY MIND,
HIDING FROM MY OPEN HEART AND FROM YOUR OPEN HEART!
TOGETHER, YOU AND I WILL ALWAYS BE ALIVE, CONNECTED, CLOSE TO YOU I'LL STAY!
AS LONG AS I CAN HOLD YOUR HAND AGAIN AND AGAIN, FOREVER, I WILL FIND MY WAY!
YOU MAY NEVER ANSWER BACK MY CALL BUT YOU SMILE AT ME WITH

Reading Visual Novels Using AGTH/TA/ATLAS/ITH:icononewithrussiaplz::iconsaysplz:Greetings!
This tutorial will explain to you how to read (almost any) Visual Novel in English without prior Japanese knowledge using Translation Aggregator, AGTH or ITH, and ATLAS. These programs do not modify the games files, so they should be safe to use without causing issues with developers.
I will begin with a short explanation as to what these programs are, followed by steps on how to set them up and finally some extra tips and tricks you could use to further the translations!
Feel free to ask questions through comments. Just keep in mind that I'm no expert at these programs and I myself used a tutorial to understand the basics of the programs, so I may be unable to answer some questions. Most links I supply will take you to the developer forums where you can download and ask questions about the specific program. No better help than the kind that comes from the ones who made it!
You can also scroll to the bottom for links to other tut
