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.

This is a complete newcomer review. I haven't seen any of the previous Star Wars movies. I know that Darth Vader is Luke's father, I know there's a force and some jedis and Yoda and whatnot, but that's pretty much it. So I watched this movie with pretty much no expectations.

SPOILER WARNING

So, as usual, bad points first, good points after.
Bad points:

1. I don't know if this is really a valid bad point since I'm obviously not a part of the fanbase for this series and haven't really been introduced to the setting of these movies before, but I guess for me, it's just a little hard to take seriously because of all the silly-looking alien designs and the fact that people can understand robotic beep boops as language. I dunno, it's a minor bad point, but that's just my personal opinion.

2. No explanation given for the fact that every planet is apparently hospitable for every alien species, including humans. I mean, if we're thinking realistically, what are the odds that every planet they land on has breathable air and a temperature that isn't deadly to at least one of these crazy aliens? Again, I'm a newcomer, so this probably doesn't bother the fanbase, but to me it's a little immersion-breaking. This is kind of what lands this movie more in the science fantasy genre than the science fiction one for me, honestly. The force too, of course, but that kind of goes without saying.

3. Very little explanation given as to why Ren chose the dark side. He's Darth Vader's grandson, yeah, but so? Both of his parents are rebels, so to me it just doesn't really make much sense that he would randomly become evil, so it would be nice if they provided a bit more of an explanation there. I mean, he's clearly dark enough to murder his own father, so there should be a pretty hardcore reason, or maybe he was just a little sociopath to begin with, I dunno. Maybe this makes sense to the already established fanbase, but I just don't understand it myself.

4. A few characters were kind of introduced out of nowhere and then never mentioned again. Felt like a bit of a loose thread to me.

Good points:

1. Very action-packed, and the action scenes were nicely done. I was at the edge of my seat during that whole spaceship chase scene on Jakku.

2. Despite what I say about the silly-looking aliens and robots, there is a certain charm to it as well. Like, it just wouldn't really be Star Wars if it was realistic, you know?

3. I loved that classic opening with the text. It just isn't a Star Wars movie without it, I feel.

4. Great music.

5. I love that this movie featured a female action lead, especially since she wasn't sexualised, and a black guy who isn't Will Smith as the male lead. It was quite refreshing.

6. While I still think the alien designs are silly, I do love the clothing designs in this movie. Flowing capes and crazy hairstyles all the way.


If I could give this movie a score between 1 and 6 where 1 is the lowest and 6 is the highest, I'd give it a 4.5, I think. I didn't like it quite enough for it to earn a 5, but I still did enjoy it quite a lot.
Well, as it turns out, my computer mouse is just broken. That is, its charger only works at a certain angle, the plug-in thing also only works at a certain angle, and my regular computer now refuses to recognise my mouse as a valid plug-in, meaning it only works at my gaming computer. This means I can't actually work on the Celtic Spirits game until I get a new mouse. I will try to get one as soon as possible, but yeah, I just figured I'd let you guys know in case it takes some time.

Edit: I've been allowed to borrow my dad's mouse for the time being, so crisis averted, I guess.
Or "god jul", as we say in Norway.
Yeah, I am not gonna finish the Celtic Spirits game today. I will try to finish it by New Years, but no promises.


Edit: So, what did you guys get for Christmas? For those of you who celebrate it on the 25th (we celebrate it on the 24th in Norway, as well as the other Nordics and central Europe), you can wait until you've unwrapped your gifts, no worries.
Here's what I got this year:
-Plush penguin and chocolate from my best friend in New Zealand
-Hat, bag, scarf, necklace and pin from my sister
-1000 kr (about 120 US dollars), a quesadilla maker, perfume, and a potato chip bowl shaped like a Viking ship from my mom
-Gift card of 300 kr to the local mall from my brother
-Animal protection supported plush fox from my mom (One of those toys you buy where the money goes to animal welfare groups)
Edit: Now I also recieved the present from my friend in Scotland. Damned slow British postal system. :c
-Shortbread sheep, tartan brooch, and a little ceramics Loch Ness monster. We decided to give each other stereotypical gifts from our respective countries this year, so I gave her something typically Norwegian, and she gave me something typically Scottish.

I might have gotten more, but I don't quite remember everything.
So, I finally moved out of the town I've been living in for the past half year, and moved back in with my parents. The town itself will be missed, because I think Hamar is a very nice cosy town and I loved my apartment, so it's a bit depressing having to leave so soon. The school will not be missed, though, they can stick their rulebooks where the sun doesn't shine for all I care.
Authentic Disney - Frozen preview by Niobesnuppa
Authentic Disney - Frozen preview
Don't worry, I'm still working on the Celtic Spirits game. I just felt like updating with a more Christmasy preview here, plus I also remembered that I hadn't really created a separate preview for the Frozen part of this Authentic Disney series.
So, this is Anna and Elsa in fairly authentic 1840's winter getup.

Speaking of this game, is there anything you guys want me to include in this one? One thing I kind of noticed is that there's very few items for them to hold in their hands, so that's something you can feel free to suggest. So far I've only included Orb and Sceptre, Elsa's ice magic, and a fan. Beyond that, all I ask is that it should be historically accurate, so don't suggest an iPhone or something silly like that.

Edit: Okay, that's enough suggestions for the handheld items. Feel free to suggest other things if there's anything specific you want me to include in the game, though, like clothes or accessories or hairstyles or backgrounds. Anything goes, but I am allowed to say no.

sorry for bothering you though (also, your style is really cool)

Yeah, that was a bit weird, I agree. They still linked to my game, though, so I can't really complain.
No worries.

You should make some art tutorials, I adore the way you draw eyes, and your shading style is just perfection ASDSASDDLSDLDKJA
Maybe if its easier you could do a speed paint-?

Thank you. :) But I don't think I'm going to make any art tutorials. I'm not great at teaching stuff, and there's already a lot of good art tutorials made by other talented artists. I am going to make tutorials for world-building, though, such as how to make believable fictional cultures and so on.

How about tutorials for making dress-up games? I've been trying to learn but there's a rather limited amount online, and most of them are those drag-and-drop ones >.< Your games are among my favourites :D In fact, I started writing my novel after playing one of them, based on Norse folklore. Thank you for sharing your creations!
