2018 April/May/June Update:
As you know, most of the year I publish 2 to 3 articles a day.
However, every year during convention season, I take a break from that to go full swing CosPlay.
From early April 2018 to late June 2018, article posting schedule will be sporadic, while CosPlay Season and Convention events are going full swing.
During this time period, you can expect most, possible all new articles to be focused on costume making, CosPlay, and the characters I'm CosPlaying.
It's now divided into 7 pages. The primary page "Meet Avallach" is now over 20,000 words long. At this rate, it'll cross 60,000 long before the costume is finished, and that's not including the other 5 pages. The primary page has now crossed 60,000 89,000 words and counting, the whole set of Avallac'h pages are now more than 200,000 words long, and more then 500 pictures of Avallac'h and his friends have now been uploaded on these pages, plus there are now 400+ hour-long videos f the costume making process as we record live, every second of this insanely elaborate, over the top CosPlay project.
As of May 19, just 29 days to PortCon we are embroidering his blue coat in a countdown against the clock to finish in time for the event, while we pray that The Dazzling Razzberry will be re-weilded back together and drivable in time for PortCon, after it's recent vandalism by Old Orchard Beach's ever growing Ku Klux Klan problem.
There will still be daily updates, but the BULK of the daily updates will be limited to the pages linked here:

After PortCon Update:
PortCon 2018 is over... but the making of the Avallac'h CosPlay is not. It is not possible to make a costume as detailed as I'm making in fewer then 400 hours, and only 129 hours went into the simplified first run version you saw at PortCon'18. The complete version will not be seen until PortCon'19
If you want to see this costume in person and watch it's progression onward as I continue to expand it... I'll be wearing it at the monthly Maine Association of CosPlay Enthusiasts (M.A.C.E.) events, throughout 2018 and 2019, you are welcome to join us. The list of current events can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/293470827423558/events/ This list is updated monthly, so be sure to check back often to find all the dates, locations, and details of events.
What reasons would elicit you to dislike someone's video?
Ads by Share-a-Sale
I've never disliked a video before either; also never down voted on reddit (and did you know you can check a person's reddit profile and see a list of everything they downvoted? a feature reddit added last year in answer to complaints that people were spamming the downvotes with trolls down voting one person only, simply because they did not like that person... go look at any reddit profile of any user, and you see a tab, to check who and what they downvote... so you can see that in 7 years, I've never once downvoted anyone, just like in 10 years I've never once disliked a yt video)
I've actually found the mentality of people who dislike/downvote anything to be bizarre and fascinating, because I personally can not comprehend why it is anyone would find a reason to dislike or downvote something. My reaction to seeing a dislike on someone's video is "well, 243 mentally disturbed people who don't have a life and have nothing better then to go around trying to hurt others, watched this video". I don't know. Perhaps that's the wrong way of looking at it, but, that's the way I see it.
Personally, if I'm watching a video and I disagree, don't like it, or otherwise lose interest, I just close the page and leave. There is never a point when my mind starts to burn with so much vehement hatred that I think "I gotta hurt this person, where the hell is that thumbs down button". Maybe I'm weird for not being full of anger and rage on such levels that I feel the need to click down/dislike buttons on social media, yt, reddit, whatever... or maybe it's my age showing?
I am a retired senior citizen granny gamer and I grew up in a time when we were taught etiquette and manners as part of mandatory schooling, beating test scores was not a thing back then, today schools seem to focus on test scores and no schools teach basic life skills any more. So I grew up being taught how to curtsy, where to place my fork, and to think twice about other people's feelings. Thus my mind always goes to think: "How would this person feel, if I was to dislike their video?" I always try to put people first, so, you never see me down vote on reddit, or dislike on youtube, or any sort of down button on any sort of other online place. And I can't imagine any person with decent manners would. My mind just automatically assumes that everyone who reaches for any sort of down button on anything, is nothing but a hater who is in need of some anger management therapy. Thus I also never look at downvotes and dislikes as a reflection on the content creator and see them as a reflection of the viewer.
[–]ThatGuy2u2 1 point 21 hours ago because the video is bad and or a waste of time, and people wont know unless you do something, think its hilarious when people go "haters gonna hate" as their getting dislikes on their video they recorded with a potato and you can hear everything they do in the background,
Did you know that egg carton soundproofing foam cost $25psf and averages $10,000 to soundproof the average sized bedroom? (I know because I did sound proof one of my recording rooms)
I've got several recording cameras, including a $2,000 one with a $10,000 lens, a $500 one, and 2 that were $300 each. Not many people can afford a set up like mine. Than again, I'm doing Witcher 3 let's plays on a $10,000 custom built gaming rig and not many people can do that either.
The average YouTuber is a teen, recording on a school provided laptop and a phone their grandparents gave them 5 years ago. They ain't got the money for better equipment and they won't until they become adults with jobs, at which point they will not have time to make videos any more.
The bulk of YTers are teens just recording to have fun, not trying to do it on a professional level, so getting better equipment isn't even something they should be striving for anyways.
Retired adults like myself, and adults with full time incomes can afford cameras and software and gaming rigs and soundproofing, but the average teen YouTuber can't. Downvoting someone because they can't afford better equipment is just plain mean, rude, and insensitive. Hurting someone's feelings, just because they can't afford the kind of set up you, yourself have, is not a very professional way to gain followers for your own channel either.
Being kind is more important than having bigger and better things.
