|Hi! I have a question because I see you use Wolfe FX too. When I got mine it was like really hard and it was turning my makeup sponge like hot pink. Was yours like that/did it do that too?|
The cake should definitely start out hard until it’s wet, and even then it should take some work to get up the first bit of makeup, but it’s weird that it turned out hot pink on your makeup sponge? =/ Not sure what that means, though my first inclination is to think that the batch might have had something wrong with it, or that there was a layer of something on top of the makeup for some reason that was mis-colored. My next suggestion is that there might be something in your sponge that interacts strangely with the wolf FX (though I’ve never heard of something like that); we use flat foundation brushes for application, so I’m not sure …)
Does anyone else have any insight?
Yo what up we gon’ stream some vidya games up in hurrrr
come watch us play a spinoff of homestuck
"Though I was sick to death of a world that couldn't be changed,
even in my lies I refused to give in to despair. But now I have
within my hands this power... In that case...!"
This is probably the most important Code Geass cosplay photo I will ever blog.
Edward: He…he hates me for sure!
Granny Pinako: Al wouldn’t. why don’t you just ask him?
Edward: I’m scared… I’m so scared I can not ask…
herongale replied to your post “META MONDAY: leave a CLAMP character in my ask and I’ll talk about them.”
late, but I wanna know your thoughts about the xxxHolic reboot in general, and Doumeki. I HAVE NOT LOOKED INTO THE REBOOT YET BUT I KEEP HEARING… THINGS… THAT MAKE ME WANNA TRY IT?
OKAY SO THIS ACTUALLY MADE ME SIT DOWN AND READ XXXHOLIC REI? which I didn’t even know was a thing until you mentioned that there was a reboot (I have been bad about keeping up on my CLAMP news, gomen).
I … would actually recommend it! It’s not actually a reboot; it’s a continuation, a Part 2 if you will. Something very strange is still going on with Watanuki, and everyone knows except Watanuki that something is very wrong, and yet even Watanuki knows something is up (he just can’t figure out what). It’s hard to say at this point what’s going on - as usual, everything talking about the overall plot is very mysterious - but it’s intriguing and entertaining. The mysterious talk about Watanuki gets frustrating, though.
'Fate' has become 'necessity' in this version, so anything that was fated to happen in xxxHolic is now something that is 'necessary' to happen or 'required'. Where fate seemed to be driven by the universe, a power outside human experience, necessity is driven by humans, so that's interesting. The side stories about the customers at the shop are as sharp and bitter as ever, which I really enjoy. CLAMP is very good at their horror stories.
There’s a weird rehearsed feeling to a lot of the Watanuki—>Doumeki antagonism - which is commented on by Yuuko, so I think it’s deliberate. Also the Watanuki—>Himawari crush is downplayed a lot; there’s a gentle feeling of everyone looking out for Watanuki, and Watanuki seems to have a very gentle feeling towards everyone else that wasn’t present in the first series.
The feeling I get from xXxHolic Rei is that this is the story that CLAMP wanted to write the first time around, but they needed Holic and Tsubasa to end around the same time and Holic suffered a lot for it. Rei isn’t really a retelling, but a retake, a second chance, and I’m really enjoying it.
Please note that the series is licensed, so please buy it when it comes out!
Neither Courage Wolf nor Calming Manatee were doing much to help my anxiety, but I knew they were both on to something.
So, I created Calmage Wolfatee.
I’M SO INSPIRED

it’s not fair that these are all so cute but rei’s looks like he just pooped his shorts
Anon, I love you for being like ‘you can do all the Syaorans if you want’ because there are a LOT TO CHOOSE FROM ughgghgh.
Let’s do CCS!Syaoran for now and maybe one of the Tsubasa Syaorans later. I’m specifically referencing manga canon for this, because I still haven’t watched all of the anime, whereas I’ve pretty much memorized the manga from beginning to end. :V
I like Syaoran because he’s adorable. :V
Honestly, I like him because he has a really fabulous character arc! He starts out a jerk who physically attacks Sakura for the cards and who, while helpful, says mean things to Sakura all the time; he can’t handle his feelings to the point of having to physically run away when forced to confront anything that makes him uncomfortable. But as the series goes on, he mellows out and learns how to treat Sakura with respect and eventually caring and love, and once he understands himself better, he doesn’t have to run away from his feelings anymore (even when he’s in the Awkwardly Failing to Confess stage of the series). He goes through a pretty intense tsundere stage, but he also grows out of it, which I very much love and respect.
I like the fact that Syaoran is very intelligent and competent in his areas of expertise (magic, for instance). He’s self-reliant and mature, but not above everything that happens around him. Watching him blush and freak out during the second half of the series is far too fun for me. /)^///^(\ He appears to be the skeptical type, but is actually just as much of a sucker for lies and a pushover as Sakura. He’s genuinely a kind-hearted person and considers the feelings of others over his own. And he never gets upset over the idea of playing second fiddle to a girl (or specifically to Sakura); after his initial scuffle for the cards, he never brings up the matter of who should be the master of the Cards again, and his only worry later is that he’s not helpful enough.
What a babby. ugh, I can’t stand how amazing he is asdlfja;sdlkj
Syaoran is perfect. PERFECT.
…. okay I take that back. Syaoran pulls a little bit of a dick move at the end of the manga, because he gets told he has to come back to Hong Kong immediately and then … doesn’t tell Sakura for some reason??? She has to find out from Tomoyo the time he’s leaving for the airport??? I’m not sure what he was thinking, though it did heighten the dramu of the ending. :V
Sometimes I suspect that in his disappointment in himself for not being more helpful to Sakura, he feels like he shouldn’t disrupt her life when she’s happy, so he keeps things to himself that he shouldn’t; in this case, he tells Sakura he likes her, then probably assumes she doesn’t feel the same and then thinks that because he has to suddenly leave saying goodbye would be awkward when she doesn’t feel that way so maybe he’ll just leave Tomoeda before she notices so she doesn’t have to have an awkward conversation with him???? yes, that’s PERFECT. (No, Syaoran, you’re a moron.) but in reality that hurts Sakura and I was kind of =/ at Syaoran for this stupidity the last time I read through vol 12.
This is going to be the 2003 anime version because SOMEBODY HERE IN THIS ROOM WITH ME HASN’T FINISHED THE MANGA. KNIGHTARCANA.
BECAUSE HE’S AN ARROGANT DWEEB :D no okay, the first episode of FMA hooked me almost from the very beginning because of the pseudo-laws of alchemy and their relation to thermodynamics and the science nerd in me going =DDD???, but the moment when I knew I was going to like Ed was when it became clear that he was a scientist first and foremost. I love that Ed is intelligent and belligerent and protective of Al and unstoppable. I love how loud he is. I just. Ed :33
BECAUSE HE’S AN ARROGANT DWEEB D: but really. His lack of respect for authority gets him in a LOT OF TROUBLE; it takes him a while to figure out that being rebellious for the sake of rebellion isn’t going to get him anywhere. Also that he sometimes thinks he knows better than anyone else when he really doesn’t, Al is looking at you really hard, NII-SAN. >(
I haven’t watched Brotherhood yet, but my favorite episode in the 2003 anime is Flame vs Fullmetal (episode 13), which was two of the Gaiden chapters of FMA put together. I spent the whole time crying with laughter, and it’s so damn quotable. ’Ii ne~! inu DAISUKI DA! :D’ ”Bon!’ da ze!’ (YES HAVOC WE CAN SEE IT GOES BOOM) ’Think of the cat, Al!’ ‘I AM! I’M THE ONLY ONE WHO IS!’
The first 13 episodes of the 2003 anime are fucking artwork, yo. It’s a remix of some chapters of the manga - for instance, the Nina story is moved into Ed and Al’s past, making it even more poignant if that’s possible - and anyone who knows me will know I almost never feel this way, but I think it actually improved on the manga a little. (Studio Bones busted out the big guns on the first anime release and it shows and arc 1 got a king’s budget. It spoiled me for most every anime for years because nothing could match up quality-wise!)
Well besides the absolutely classic line from the beginning of the anime - “WHO IS AN ULTRA-HYPER-TINY PERSON!??” (in Japanese) - I’m very fond of this one:
"Whether it be an arm, or a leg, or even my heart you can take it!! So give him back… HE’S MY LITTLE BROTHER AND HE’S ALL I HAVE LEFT!!!"
Ed’s clothes don’t change a lot throughout the series, but I think his furred coat he wears to Briggs is pretty fabulous:
Ed/SCIENCE. :V Ed always struck me as the kind of guy who could probably be happy just studying his whole life. He would publish lots of papers and bask in the praise everyone would give him for his amazing insights but he really just loves science, okay? That’s one of the things I like about him.
I know Ed/Winly is canon and I’m glad because it’s cute? But it just didn’t scream at me, sorry.
I suppose I would have to say my broTP is Ed/Al because, lo and behold, they are bros. :V Seriously, though, their relationship is the most important thing in FMA. It drives the whole plot forward, especially in the 2003 series. They would literally die for each other, they rag on each other and play with each other and push each other to new heights and Al reminds Ed to stop reading once in a while and eat when he gets on a library binge and Ed polishes Al’s armor and they piss each other off and make up and Al gets exasperated with Ed being a rash moron and Ed gets exasperated with Al being too nice and. They’re flawless, in every iteration, and I love them.
Ed loves cats just as much as Al does, but when it comes to keeping them around he’s just more practical. (They make a lot of little cat shelters when there’s strays around.)
Also, Ed figured out how to do the flame trick Roy does, but he doesn’t use it because it’s hard to get a spark off his automail and he doesn’t have the same level of control as Colonel Shit.
I don’t think I really have one when it comes to the 2003 series version of Ed … but the ending of the 2003 anime made no sense. As much as Conqueror of Shambala gave me Elric family feelings, the whole Dante arc was dumb. :V Also I didn’t ship Hei and Ed at all? Like I think that Ed didn’t really notice Hei outside of appreciating him as a friend and fellow scientist and going ‘wow he’s probably this world’s version of Al, I guess this is what Al would look like if he hadn’t been, y’know, armor’. It’s totally cool if you ship it, just not my cuppa.
I wish that we got a light novel or a second movie about Ed and Al traveling around the world in search of that bomb because I wanted more stories about them now that Al was back in a human body ;A;
Ed’s new automail breaking down ;A; now that Hoenhiem isn’t around, what would Ed do to get new prosthetics :CCC Also PLEASE LEAVE GERMANY BEFORE THE NAZIS TAKE OVER, BOYS. Al would probably be okay but Ed would definitely not. :(

ultra-hyper-chibi, of course :V
MAN OKAY I GOT REALLY EXCITED WHEN I GOT THIS FIRST so bless you~
Because Allen is a knight in rusty armor, which is my favorite kind of knight. :V I adore good-hearted characters who have rough edges they’ve purposely sanded down; give me street-smart kids who know how to look like they have a silver spoon in their mouths, and I’m yours. Allen really is kind and gentle and invested in the wellbeing of everyone around him, including the AKUMA, but he’s not naive or stupid by a long shot, and I adore that.
My biggest problem with Allen is his Christ complex, by which I mean his willingness to sacrifice himself to save anyone and everyone. The fastest way to suck the drama out of a life-or-death situation is when the character is 0k with dying. This is less a personality problem and more a writing problem, but I’m also pissed off that the ultimate form of Allen’s Innocence seems to be 100% INEFFECTIVE, like why the fuck is Ticky Mick still alive. I ASK YOU. >(
UM I didn’t really watch the anime but if I had to pick an episode, I think the flashback to his living with General Marion Cross is a pretty great one. It kind of turns Allen’s tendency to get sick at the mention of Cross’ name into an understandable reality while you still kind of laugh at Allen’s pain, er. :V As for manga chapters, it’s almost impossible for me to choose. .__.; I think for sheer shock/hilarity value, the chapter where Allen cheats the literal pants off White Ticky Mick and his peers at poker on the train is beautiful; it’s our first real introduction to the idea that maybe Allen isn’t as straightlaced as he appears to be.
Also his first encounter with Ticky was pretty intense. :V And the chapter where he pilots the Ark for the first time. Or when he finds out about the 14th. Or …. (I could go on ….)
GOSH OKAY, my favorite arc of the manga is still the Rewinding Town. The arc really brings out some of the best of Allen, with his genuine gentle nature and high, but not endless, tolerance for bullshit, plus the fabulous drama of his faceoff with Rhode and the moment when it becomes clear just how much of a Jesus complex he has going on. Also I like seeing Allen in a rough spot, oops. thank you, Rhode, for that. (Also I love how gothic the art was. And Miranda and Rinali are in that arc and I love them SO MUCH.)
"Because I am a small man, my heart is moved by what’s in front of my eyes, not by what the world needs. I just can’t abandon what’s there in front of me. I want to protect everything I can!" (In which Allen points out that for him, he can’t sacrifice the minority to help the majority. And Kanda is forced to respect it.)
this uniform was the bane of my cosplay existence for 2 years and I fucking love it.
Allen/ZA WORLD? I didn’t ship him super hard with anyone because Allen is painfully aware, even from the beginning of the series, that he isn’t likely to live to see the wrong side of 30 since he’s a parasite-type (and later it turns out he’ll probably be a Noah before he’s 20), and deep down he has far too much self-loathing to seriously be interested in anyone. But he is pretty determined to save as much of humanity from the Earl as possible before he goes, so.
But in my happy world where Allen makes it, Allen/Rinali is my ship and you can’t take it from me. They’re adorable, and when Allen learns to trust Rinali (and Rinali learns to really trust Allen) they’ll be perfect for each other. (Also lots of bendy acrobat sex.)
Allen is also hard to brotp, dammit, he’s actually very much a loner while appearing to be good friends with everyone because he’s so personable. :( Probably Lavi or Link are the closest people he has to brotps, and he sees Lavi as too childish and Link isn’t really a good confidant given his role in Allen’s life. Uhghghghgh, this kid tho, why can’t he just actually trust someone. >:
I HAVE SO MANY OF THESE. Um, Allen is a virgin, but he knows waaayyyyyyy more about sex than pretty much anyone else in his age range at the Black Order because (a) in the circus nobody really had private rooms so where do you THINK the married acrobats got it on and (b) he lived with Marion Cross for a while, so he spent a lot (A LOT) of time in brothels. Even some of the members of the Order who have had sex don’t know as much as Allen fucking Walker. Allen knows tips. Allen is your go-to guy.
Allen also knows a lot of jokes that are not for the company of ladies, but they are so dirty that Kanda doesn’t get it and Lavi turns the same shade as his hair instead of laughing so he stopped telling them.
I … I am so bored with Allen/Lavi and Allen/Kanda and Allen/Lavi/Kanda … like I totally get how hot it is (god knows I’ve written it) but … I got so overloaded …
That the mangaka would return to what the beginning of the series was like, when it was gothic tales and not SHONEN FAITO all the time. :(
Allen becoming the 14th permanently like what would even be the fucking point anymore. I’d be so upset. :(((((
alone ~ clever ~ savior ~ gentle ~ neurotic
ALLEN FUCKING WALKER. :V
