Friends, I'm considering leaving DeviantArt.

Since my projects take months to complete, I don't upload but a few times a year. DeviantArt has had a massive problem with Malware getting in through their ads. Every time I come here to check out things, my anti-virus blocks a high-threat risk coming into my computer. The only thing DeviantArt has done is allow you to download a firefox ad on where you can report the ads, but that still doesn't block the attempted attacks. This has been a problem for years. Every time a Core membership sale comes up where I get 6 months, I'll get it, but it comes up rarely and I can't justify the normal membership as, A. It used to be cheaper for Premium, but they doubled the cost and renamed the same thing "Core". I don't use the other features, I *JUST* want ad-free browsing to protect myself, and B. As I said, I don't upload often enough to justify paying $5 a month to use this site.

If DeviantArt really cared about stopping these hackers, they would offer a tiered system where there would be a cheaper price for only ad-free browsing. Maybe I'll come back every once in awhile to throw up a new picture, but for my own safety, I just can't come here anymore until DeviantArt fixes their shit.

P.S. Please note! I AM NOT A COSPLAYER!!! Those of us who have been involved in the art of costume making, especcially in the professional level guilds, have always known our art to be Costuming. "Cosplay" is a relatively new fad that technically means "Costume Role-play" and the focus is not necessarily on the costume, but on the activity. Wearing a costume and posing for pictures also is not necessarily cosplay. As one who focuses on the artform of making a complete character look, I am a Costumer and would prefer being refered to as such. Thank you for understanding!

Also, I do not do commission work. If I have anything for sale, it will be posted to my journal :)

-STOCK- Please note, my work is not stock art. I have had a few people use my work as such in a taseful manner though. If you want to use my work as stock, please ask permission first. Don't use it in any inappropriate manner, and credit me! The costumes I make are hand-made and took a lot of work. :)

Favourite genre of music: Rock
Favourite style of art: Realism
