The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily so they can meet their quota of getting FREE FOOD donated every day to abused and neglected animals in their shelters.
It takes less than a minute (only about 15 seconds actually) to go to their site and click on the purple box titled, ‘Click Here to Give - it’s FREE!’. Every click gives about .6 bowls of food to sheltered dogs. You can also click daily!
Keep in mind that this does not cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising. [via.]
Go to the website HERE.
It’s just a click… takes about 1 or 2 seconds.
there’s no pop-up ads or anything on the site
just click it once and you’re done
Hi tumblr followers and beyond! So, I’m selling lots of wigs, costumes and anime stuff over at my FB cosplay page (including Sailor Moon items). My diabetic kitty needs a EKG and more tests to see what’s going on with her heart and I can’t really afford it without your help! If you would please reblog this and help me reach others who may be interested in purchasing a thing or two, that would be a huge help.

There’s a topic that’s spreading like wildfire throughout the cosplay community: bullying.
Whether it’s verbal, written or physical. Bullying cosplayers over their body image, race, sex or level of experience is WRONG. No one (that means YOU) is perfect. We all have flaws whether they are physical or not. Think about your own flaws before pointing out someone else’s. You’ll find yourself less likely to say anything. We all put hours upon hours of hard work into our creations. Even if you don’t make your own costume, chances are you worked hard to have the $ to buy it. Even if you’re not a cosplayer yourself and just a fan of cosplay, you saved up for that convention ticket and hotel room right? We’re all in this together whether you like it or not. Let me tell you a story..
I know lots of cosplayers and am friends with so many talented folks. There is one friend in particular I would like to tell you about. She is incredibly talented and a really sweet person too. She inspires me with her work and attention to detail in her costumes. So, she started working on a particular costume (which I’m sure you’ll recognize):
Pretty awesome, huh? Can you imagine how much time went into each of those rhinestone snowflakes? Not to mention all the extra rhinestones along the edges and the overall construction! But…
Why? Because someone like you told her, her skin was too dark. She now plans to finish it one day but those hurtful words made her lose interest in completing the costume. After all that hard work! Can you imagine what she must have felt to cause her to put everything aside?
Think before you speak. That was one of the best pieces of advice I was ever given. We are all quick to judge, I’m not perfect I do it too sometimes. But you don’t have to allow the thoughts to become words…eventually you learn your thoughts were wrong. Speak with your heart, not your mind and encourage others. You’ll find that you feel a lot better when you do. A lot better than that feeling you get when you bash someone. That’s called pride btw. Don’t be too full of that stuff. It’s not healthy.
So, what would you like to see me discuss next in the Cosplay 101 blog series? :)
This is one of the reasons I’m very meticulous about my costumes. If one detail is wrong, it bothers me and I never feel like it’s good enough (speaking of my own work).
