Dragon age drawing meme. I’ve been slacking on my drawing recently and am going stir crazy waiting for dragon age. I figured if i commit to making a post about it i’ll be more likely to follow through. Also other people might see it and have a go! (if you do i want to see what you’ve made, we could be buddy cheerleaders). I’m posting my day one later tonight!
Plan on attempting this in some variation during my week off! As well as following the wonderful OP to see how she does!
Flower crowns are over. Slay mankind and destroy your enemies with the regality you deserve in a Crystal Crown!
For last spring’s Kitacon, myself and Sammy entered into the Masquerade with Inori Yuzuriha and Mana Ouma from Guilty Crown. Now, if you’re not aware of the series then you might not be familiar with Mana’s crystallised final form, but in an effort to improve our costumes for this weekend’s MCM expo in London you can see our tutorial for making your very own bejewelled headpiece with very little skill required!
Difficulty Rating: ★ - You just need to know how to handle a hot glue gun really.

I ACTUALLY HAVE ANOTHER TUTORIAL FOR YOU GUYS
This is how we give Praise to a Witch who is really Nailing an Outfitte.
I have a mighty need to expand the knowledge that this gif is from the ballet Giselle, and these are spirits of women who died from broken hearts called wilis - in the ballet, men who get lost in the forest at night are trapped by the wilis and danced to death for doing wrong to women. It’s all quite badass. (with Myrtha, Queen of the Willis in the middle - she’s one cold hearted bitch and I love her.)

“Don’t wait. Writers are the only artists I know of who expect to get somewhere by waiting. Everyone knows you have to dance to be a dancer, you have to sing to be a singer, you have to act to be an actor, but far too many people seem to believe that you. don’t have to write to be a writer. So, instead of writing, they wait. Isaac Asimov said it beautifully in just six words: “It’s the writing that teaches you.” Writing is what teaches you. Writing is what leads to “inspiration.” Writing is what generates ideas. Nothing else-and nothing less. Don’t meditate, don’t do yoga, don’t do drugs. Just write.” — DANIEL QUINN (via harmonyinkpress)

where did you get your madoka wig??
I purchased my wig from Bodyline Wigs after much internal conflict over the reliable prices of Ebay vs the Quality of the wig. Because I knew i’d like to have it as a thick wig so the bunches didn’t look so pulled on the wig structure beneath the fibres.
The wig I bought was this style;
Which most certainly arrived big and thick. One of the major benefits with Bodyline is you can choose your colour of course, though I struggled a little with matching it on the light of my screen with what I had in mind.
As you can tell though they are quite different in style. The Base wig I completely straightened out using my mini hair straighteners (which reach quite high in temperature, so yes the wig is heat resistant. Though I tested it on a part I was certain would be cut first). Then I cut away any of the damaged ends and cut the fringe before hacking at the clip ins and teasing the ends to make this;
And looked like this;
(I chose to keep the clip ins curled for effect rather than straightening, they’re cuter and worked with the style of the dress better this way. I bought the hair clips from a market stall in Leeds, UK)
Hope this helped!
