If you decide to read, thank you. I hope no one takes offense to this and has an open mind when reading. If you don't read this, fine. Just don't be surprised if you end up doing what I'm about to explain, you get snapped at for it somewhere down the road.
It is common curtousy to not question someone you don't really know. Right?
You're walking down the street and see a gentleman in a wheelchair with cuts and scars all over.
Typical initial reaction: Oh, that person has been through something to make him that way. Try not to stare and continue about your business.
You wouldn't run up to that stranger and ask in their face, "HEY MAN. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU? WHAT ARE ALL THOSE MARKS ON YOUR SKIN? WHY ARE YOU MISSING A LEG? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR ARM? WHY ARE YOU SO WEIRD LOOKING?"
Why would you do it on the internet...?
Is it because it's the internet and you feel like

(Sorry for spamming, but I really want to set things straight. I don't like knowing that someone is trying to make my friends and I sound like shit, when we didn't even do anything wrong.)
Hey everyone. This is journal to warn everyone, there is someone who is out there on DA (Making new/fake accounts.) and tumblr, personally messaging our followers (You guys) and telling them things about us (Hannah, Orange, & I). (Idk what "things" but apparently it's not good, and they're trying to make us seem like we are horrid people ((Hannah and I)).)
I didn't really want to post this journal at all, I didn't even want to make this a public kind of thing, but now that the troll has gone and made it public, I have no choice. Everyone agreed that it would be better to
Can everyone just..Go tell someone you love them.
Even if it is random & out of the blue.
Even if you feel like a total doofus.
Go tell your friends, family, lover, neighbor, your neighbor's dog, a squirrel.. Go on a love spree.
You never know if it is the last time you'll see them.
If you're fighting with someone, stop. Tell them you love them. You never know if that would be the last time you talk to them.
Make life full of love. Not regrets.
That is all.

Videos - A few of you have noticed, we don't post videos as much anymore. Well, recently we posted two CMVs that we were so happy to accomplish with others. But we haven't done fun skits in a long time. Half of the reason we don't get much filmed anymore is because we hardly cosplay together anymore. We used to cosplay every weekend together, or at least hang out together. Now it's like.. no one has time anymore. Trying to schedule between working, school, family matters, etc.. It's hard. And it's sad, but I really hope we can still get together to do stupid things at least once in a while. It's just been hard. Sometime soon, I'm hoping we can open all of the awesome mail we've received. We haven't forgotten! We're just waiting for the right time when we're all free.
Art Commissions, Afest, Opening Mail vids.Yo.
Here's the AnimeFest/opening mail vids before I type a buncha hoopla all up on this journal:

OK SO.. AnimeFest...
We only got to go on Saturday, as Tucker, Sam & Danny from Danny Phantom. But after hanging out with everyone & having such a fun time (& running around buying things like MAD) We wanted to try and come back on Sunday, but we obviously couldn't. We didn't ice skate at all either. I was really looking forward to it too! TDT Even after meeting a lot of new and old friends, we still didn't get to meet up w
Cosplay adviceWith each day going by, I am asked more & more on cosplay advice.
"Lala, can you give me some cosplay advice? I am going to cosplay so-&-so.." (Etc. etc.,)
"I was wondering if you have any tips for me when it comes to cosplaying..?"
I have spent years thinking about how to even respond to this sort of question, there is so much advice I want to give, but I don't want to give it to just one person.
Thus... I am going to lay it all out right here on this journal.
If you are the type to say: "TL;DR" Then go ahead & leave now, or just read tip #4. XD To those who actually want to see what my advice is, continue on this long jolly yellow brick road. (Whether you cosplay Wizard of Oz or not. LOL.)
Tip #1: Starting/having a "cosplay group."(What I consider the most important tip, especiall
Hey.. I have something to say..---------------> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qg_3jU8Jxm4&list=UUIMXUz-vD44lrk_c4q9cAZA&index=0&featurelcp
Thank you allFirst, I want to apologize for the weird week I've caused. I usually don't allow myself to post such emotional journals like my recent one.
I'm going to be a doo-doo head & give you my excuse of, "I wasn't having a good week." & that incident was kind of one of the last straws that blew my top hat off and turned me into the hulk.:iconthehulkplz:
or something like that. LOL
Thank you all so much for the insane amount of Happy Birthday wishes & gifts.
I tried my best to thank all of you, but there's just so many of you sweet people that I can't get to all of you! AAH.
As for my birthday events... I actually was called into work & worked overtime, so, once I got home the plans promised to me didn't happen because of.. things.. Etc etc.
I dealt with a bit too much bad news, I'm pretty tolerant of a few bad things happening, but it was just.. generally not a "good" day. (Or week, I guess you could say. xD) With the anniversary of Luckey passing away, people around me hav
Youtube and Videos: New Stuff!Newest episode of Kingdom Bros http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnICmRszNyY&featurelcp
Newest episode of The disFunctional Fire Ferrets http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVHJYmFPZlw&featurelcp
With those two up, we're looking into doing some new stuff too. Primarily some DC Comics projects and some more Avatar projects. I also hope to finally start filming Behind the Bulter (Black Butler) Episode 1 soon, because we all know how long that one has been on the backburner XD
Also, if you're looking for our CMVs, just a quick reminder that they're on out Vimeo site https://vimeo.com/user9598094/videos

Finally, fanart of Mako's female alter ego from the new disFunctional Fire Ferrets episode, made me nearly pee myself this morning 8D
Alcon 2012What an amazing con. It topped last year's Alcon (hence the chant buzzing around the con "Best Alcon Ever") and I was just so happy to be a part of that and meet so many amazing people that my Facebook literally exploded after the con ended. EXPLODED WITH MANLY RELISH THAT IS. I was going to wait until I had all the photos from the con before typing out this journal but meh, I've got time now and I've got energy SO LET'S CONQUER THIS SLIDE!!!
Myself, VandorWolf and Valdrein got into London Saturday morning and after going through the obstacle course that is the International Visitors way through Gatwick airport we were greeted by a sleepy KellyJane who had woken up at 5am or something crazy like that to come get us at the airport (weloveyou). We spent the day with Parle in stinky plane clothes and with about 3 hours of sleep each which just made everything far more magical (except for the magic show we watched in Oxford Circus which was crap... I mean what kind of magici
Just saying, Lala's Vid, July BirthdaysI was thinking today how I needed to make a journal out of this and share it with you all.
Today was the first time I've been outside in weeks. (I was sick). However Alot of times I wouldnt go outside because I honestly would either hate the way I look, or didnt want people to see my skin. Today, I felt a lot better so I wanted to make myself go out. My skin looked really bad, and I hate going out cause of my weight. Thats such a silly thing to say, but honestly it does get me down sometimes.
My mom asked me if I wanted to go shopping today with her. I normally say no, but something made me just.. really want to go outside. I was reaching for my shorts and then my mom grabbed my dress and asked if I wanted to wear it out. Honestly I didnt know if I did or didnt. Usually if I do go out I dont try to look good. In fact I usually just run around in shorts, short sleeve shirt, flip flops, no make up, and hair in a pony tail xD I was staring at my skin at the time.. and I knew th
Aang for a Cure: FDP Charity FundraiserHello everyone!
I've been thinking for the last month or so about FDP's next charity event. It's been a while since Nova's Pray for Japan campaign (relief for tsunami victims) and I figured that it might be time for another project.
I've been talking for years about shaving my head to cosplay Aang. He's my favourite character in The Last Airbender, and although I've cosplayed him before that was a while ago (aka I'm not satisfied with that costume XD). To kick my ass into gear to do this, I've decided to shave my head for cancer research. Shaving off hair for cancer fundraisers is a pretty common thing to do, but this time there's a twist when you make a donation of any size to any cancer society (I've provided links to some major ones, but feel free to donate to any local organizations or organizations in your country that I may have missed!) reply to this message and include 1) Where you made a donation to 2) Who you want to shave Aang's head: Sokka, Zuko, Azula, Katara or Toph
Kuroshitsuji live action movie! [EDIT] + trailerHey everyone!
