Bla bla bla. I make dressup games, write stories, like to sing. Not much else to say, really.

I don't make fanart, and I don't take requests. You can suggest ideas to me, but don't be too surprised if I say no.

Dressup game making and storywriting are both unpredictable and timeconsuming processes, so please don't ask me when my stories or games are done, chances are I don't know the answer. Glitches and writing blocks can show up at any time, and I don't want to disappoint people by giving a deadline that I won't be able to keep.

Let's establish some ground rules when it comes to my games.
1. You can post screenshots or draw the outfits you see in my games, as long as you credit me in the description of your deviation.
2. Regarding adoptables, you are allowed to make adoptables with my games, but you can't demand payment for them. You should not get paid for posting screenshots from games you didn't make, it's just straight-up scamming.
3. You can make characters with my games, but I think it would be best if you try to modify them a little bit, not necessarily to avoid essentially ripping me off, but rather because if you modify them, you make your character more unique rather than just something lazy and unoriginal you made in a dressup game.

So, today ended another year of the most ridiculously huge and expencive music competition in the world. For some reason Australia is still in, even though they're not a member of the European Broadcasting Union and are nowhere near Europe, but whatever.

Ukraine won this year. A well deserved victory, in my opinion, even though it really wasn't my taste at all. I'm not really a fan of soul music, but the reason I think it's so well deserved is that it was a song with an actual specific message and story to tell (as opposed to the stereotypical and very shallow-sounding "peace and love" bullcrap that some countries send in to Eurovision every year), it was written by the person who sung it, and it was one of the very few songs in the finals that weren't in the pop/europop genre, with the other non-pop songs I can remember being Cyprus (some sort of rock), Georgia (rock), and Netherlands (country). Ukraine wasn't one of my favorites, but I would much rather that Ukraine win than say Australia or Russia or especially Belgium (*cough* Shirley Temple/child star/Hannah Montana/Annie *cough*), because those three countries were all in the same genre as the majority, and so even though their songs weren't necessarily bad, they still didn't really stand out in my opinion. One of the reasons why I love that a song that wasn't pop won, is that since Eurovision always tries to imitate last year's winner, this means that next year, there will probably be a lot of ethnic-sounding music that isn't necessarily pop, which will be great. This is why 2007 was my favorite year, 'cause that was the year after Lordi won, so half the songs were rock.
As usual with Eurovision, my favorites are almost always at the bottom of the votes, which is depressing, but not unexpected since it's like that almost every year. My personal favorites were Hungary, Cyprus, Croatia and Georgia. It's pretty funny that every single one of my favorites were in south-eastern Europe since usually I don't like the songs from that part of Europe (not sure if Georgia is technically European, but they're very close). Also liked Israel and Bulgaria quite a lot, and though Romania unfortunately didn't compete in the European semi-finals, I actually really loved the Romanian song too. I think this is the first time I haven't voted for anyone in northern or western Europe, as all my favorites were inexplicably south-eastern.

Sweden is waaaaaay too fond of Eurovision, it's a little bit ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, I think they did a great job of hosting Eurovision this year, but it does get a little bit too much sometimes, too much glam and flashiness to the point where you end up kind of exhausted. This is especially so since last year's winner won mostly because of the spectacular stageshow, and so in typical Eurovision fashion, most of the entries try to imitate last year's winner, and therefore most of the entries this year had over-the-top flashy entries, where many were interesting to look at, but a few of them were just a little bit too much in my opinion, to the point where it becomes a little bit tacky.
Having a middle-show with Justin Timberlake also seemed really out of place in my opinion, and I think it would be better if they had for example a famous Swedish singer or band, like maybe Europe with Final Countdown or something like that. Justin Timberlake has literally nothing to do with either Sweden or Eurovision, so having him there just seemed almost like... I dunno, appealing to the lowest common denominator by hiring some American celebrity that most people have heard of instead of taking something less famous that is more relevant to the competition.

However, I give props to Sweden for finally exposing what a mess the voting system is. It's fucking ridiculous that the jury votes count as 50% of the total votes when they make up less than 1% of the people actually watching the competition. It also became very clear that the juries are in total disagreement with the rest of the viewers on many of them, as the jury put Australia on top and Poland at the bottom, while the actual audience put Russia on top and Poland in third place. Ukraine won because it got a lot of votes from both the audience and the jury, even though it wasn't technically the favorite among either.
Personally, I think they should just get rid of the jury altogether. What purpose do they even serve? Dominating the competition with their crappy taste? Why should their opinions count more than the opinions of the majority? It's just unfair, and they don't really contribute anything in my opinion. If they insist on keeping these stupid juries, then they shouldn't make up 50% of the votes, instead they should only make up around 10%, 15% at most.
European Legend Maker - Preview, work in progress by Niobesnuppa
European Legend Maker - Preview, work in progress
Man, my gallery is getting a bit clogged up with previews. >_> I gotta start finishing these games already and not just keep jumping from game to game.
Anyways, this will be a very small dressup game centering around European fairytales. I have plans to include a male character as well, though currently there's only a female character. This is one of those few games where I'll actually upload the game once the female is finished, and then you guys can come up with suggestions for things you want to see in the game, and then later I'll update it with a male character.
There is also a name sign in this game with a randomised fairytale title, such as the "Dragontamer" one in this preview.

Feel free to come with suggestions here if there's anything in particular you want to see. This will, like I said, be a very small game, so I can include quite a lot of suggestions here, as long as they're good suggestions.

Edit: I decided to rework a lot of this game because I want it to have a bit more of an epic feel to it. Previously it was more focused on fairytales and had a very cosy Alpine feel to it. It still has an Alpine feel to it with a lot of folk embroidery, but now there will be more focus on legends rather than fairytales, which means there will be some very dramatic-looking backgrounds, more swords and armour, and I also decided to give the model a more dynamic pose since I thought the original pose was a bit boring.
Since I changed her pose, I have a lot of work to do on this game since I need to redraw every clothing item, but since I'm going to replace the clothing items with some slightly different ones anyway, it's probably for the best.

Edit: Finally added some shoes. I've also reworked the facial options slightly, inspired by the art style seen in medieval marginalia.

Authentic Disney - Frozen preview by Niobesnuppa
Authentic Disney - Frozen preview
So, here's another preview for this game. I decided to work a bit more on the Upper Class Lady section of the game, adding a couple more hairstyles, some more tops and day dresses, and giving the court dresses a more proper silk shading to them.

For this preview, I decided to do something different instead of just making yet another screenshot of Anna and Elsa, so in this one I took screeshots of ambassadors from a bunch of different countries. Three of them have old flags from the 1840's that are no longer in use, so feel free to guess which countries they're all from. This is kind of just to show how this game will function just as much as an 1840's fashion maker as it will function as a Frozen game. It's entirely possible to make stuff in this game that isn't related to Frozen at all.

Has anyone else lost their precious time and effort due to these fucking windows restarts? I had just finished drawing three intricate embroidered shirts for the European Legend Maker when I suddenly got the notice that Windows will automatically restart, and before I had the chance to even save, it just closed down my Flash file and turned off the video I was about to watch, and now I have to do all that shit over again.
So angry at this.

On another note, I just noticed they apparently have a plastic surgery simulator up on GirlsGoGames now. Y'know, for kids! Featuring such instructions as "Her lips are too thin", and "Apply Botox", all in good fun for the girls between 8-13 that make up the majority of the users on that site. The only realistic thing about the game seems to be that the nurse looks exactly the same as the woman after plastic surgery.

Anyways, I'm sorry for being so slow to reply to comments and check out journals and artworks these days, I'm just not feeling up to it. Still kind of miserable about everything, and there are just so many comments, and some of them so long that I need to read and reply to, so forgive me if you get a reply a bit slowly. I will read them eventually, but not right now, 'cause right now I have 78 different things in my inbox and I'm still pissed off at Windows deleting my work
