  • What kind of fabric could I use/what which fabric should I use for this dress?

    Im looking into re-creating this dress:

    However, I was hoping to instead of having a thick black fabric, using a sheer black fabric with white dots, and green underneath as a base. I’ve been told that organdy might be the right kind of fabric for the sheer black, but I can’t seem to find any in large amounts. I also have not found any luck in black fabric with white polka dots/splotches.

    Any assistance with a suggested type of fabric or a link to good fabric for this project would be wonderful.

  • Would a wooden practice katana be allowed at comiccon nyc?

    So Im going to comiccon and I want to bring a wooden practice katana. I read through the rules about weapons which are:

    "Weapons Policy

    Please read this entire policy before attending New York Comic Con. Failure to follow this policy may result in your removal from the convention without refund.

    The following items are forbidden at New York Comic Con:

    If you're bringing, buying or selling something that could maim, damage or cause serious bodily harm, we're going to take issue. The following items are forbidden at NYCC:

    but I am not quite sure if a wooden practice katana would be allowed.

    that is the katana I would be getting if it helps.

  • か has a kanji character?

    okay, so excuse me for what is probably a stupid question, but when you are asking a question in japanese and use か at the end of the question, is there a kanji for that? i only ask because i just recently found out how to type in hiragana on my mac and every time i try to write a question, the computer auto kanjis it to 可. i mean i didnt learn anything about that in school, but i did have an incompetent teacher so i wouldnt be surprised if he didnt teach this. but thanks for the help

  • What brought you into anime?

    just curious. for me, when i was 12 i had this strange fascination with the Winx Club so i started watching the whole series on youtube, and of course in the youtube sidebar i saw something that looked suspiciously like the power puff girls only "japanese-afyed" which brought me to watching my first subtitled cartoon power puff girls Z (I know, fantastic first taste) from there i watched tokyo mew mew and then finaly got to Fullmetal Alchemist and i finaly understood the amazingness of anime

    so entice me, tell me your story if you want :P
