TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK: BANGTAN COMEBACK GUIDE

As always I would like to emphasize again that we all try our best in helping out. So don’t worry if you’re not able to do most of what’s written here. What’s important is you try to do your best given the available time you have and funds/resources! ^_^ Here are a list of things we can do to help bangtan every comeback.

1. DIGITAL STREAMING/POINTS

Only Korean Music Apps counts towards winning in Music Shows. And this criteria often takes up half of the points to win so it’s very important. MELON is the main important app but there’s also GENIE, NAVER.. etc… 

MELON APP - you have to purchase a streaming pass to be able to stream the album/songs to make it count. iOS users can buy their own pass. Android users you need to ask help from iOS users to use your account and buy the pass for you. I bought mine from here. [HOW TO: MELON APP]

NAVER APP - !!!THEY GIVE OUT FREE STREAMING PASS!!! Yes free! You just have to sign up and follow instructions to get it. [HOW TO: NAVER APP]

2. BUYING THE PHYSICAL ALBUM

It only counts if you buy from stores/online shops that counts the purchase in Gaon or Hanteo charts, otherwise your purchase won’t count. We always get good results on this so it really helps bangtan for music show wins as well. So if you can please do consider buying the albums! [LIST HERE]

3. SPOTIFY & iTUNES PURCHASES 

Streaming and buying the album from here counts for Billboard charts so they’re important too. Please do consider purchasing from here as well and streaming on spotify to help bangtan with their Billboard ranking.

4. YOUTUBE MV VIEWS

This is to make sure that every time you view the MV, it counts. The result of the views counts towards helping bangtan win in Music Shows. Not only that, we always try to get a lot of views for the first 24 hours. Please do not reupload the video on other sites, stop others from doing it as well, make sure the views only goes to the main one on bighit’s channel. [HOW TO: YOUTUBE MV]

5. MUSIC SHOWS

Each music shows have different criteria. But most really have more points for digital streaming. Will post more info if there’s some voting to be done preshow. [LIST OF MUSIC SHOWS AND INFO]

Please feel free to send me an ask or chat msg for any questions!! I reply faster if you’re off anon. Thanks again ARMYs for always doing your best in helping Bangtan~ Let’s also enjoy and have fun this comeback!!!! 

The Poor Man’s Guide to an Easy No-Sew Doll Wig Cap and Wig

Do you have a bald doll? Do you have absolutely no ability to sew or make wigs? Well it’s your lucky day! Because with The Poor Man’s Guide to an Easy No-Sew Doll Wig Cap and Wig, your bald dolly can have hair in no time! *yaaaaaaaaaaay*

The first thing you need is some tacky glue, a cruddy paint brush that you couldn’t care less if it died in a fire, and saran wrap!

Wrap your dolly’s head in the saran wrap like you’re trying to suffocate it! Seriously, stretch the saran wrap downward so there’s as few wrinkles as possible, and secure it tightly with a rubber band / twist tie / etc.

Wrap the doll’s head tightly again, but this time with a thin fabric that you will use as the base of the wig. I used thin cotton. start painting a layer of tacky glue alllll over the head.

Let the tacky glue dry (you may want to do a few layers) and when the fabric has hardened, you can cut the cap to the shape of the hairline. If you cut the saran wrap, you must wrap the doll again! Keep the doll covered safely in plastic wrap!

Apply hair (whatever you wanted to use, faux fur, alpaca, etc) by adding a small chunk at a time. Be sure to remove any undercoat or extra fluff from each bunch before applying to the wig cap. Paint the spot where you want to apply with glue, add hair, paint over again with glue to secure.

Go row by row until you reach the top.

This is where it gets tricky - It’s hard to see in the photos, but first you apply a chunk of hair going *against* the direction you want it to lay. Then, you add a small amount of glue and *fold* the hair so that it lays flowing in the correct direction, and creates a nice looking part in the hair.

And there it is! The Poor Man’s Easy No-Sew Doll Wig Cap and Wig! Enjoy!

!Extra tips!
+This method works with faux fur, alpaca, fibers of all sorts, thread, feathers, whatever you want! The glue is what worked best for us! There is nothing set in stone, Get creative!
+Drawing on a dried wig cap can help if you need to know where your part will be and which direction you want your hair to go!
+This is an excellent method for boyish or pixie wigs! Cutting as you go is also possible, but the end result can look a little choppy if you aren’t careful. For some people though, its much easier to cut as you go to create a more layered look!
+THE WIG CAP WILL END UP A HARDCAP! It will only fit similar dolls to the one you made it for!
+You can also keep a pair of scissors handy to cut into wefts first, paint glue on, and then add them.
+Laying down Saran Wrap on your workstation can help with keeping an easy to clean spot. 
+Glue WILL dry on the brush. In our experience, hay brushes are the easiest and don’t stick to the fibers as much.
+The finished products are delicate, and should only need light brushing or treatment with appropriate products!
+There is no set method for the part, everyone has their own method!

Lastly, if you use this tutorial, we would LOVE to see your wigs! :)
Here are some made using the method here!



With spring break just around the corner and a lot of travel in the foreseeable future, I thought I’d put together something about traveling and productivity. Now, but productivity I don’t mean studying. I’ve tried that and unless I actually have a test the minute I get off the plan, it’s usually miserable. What I mean is: how can I do more than just sitting around and counting the number of people with bags that definitely won’t fit on the overhead compartment? So here’s what I try to do at airports.

How to find your Totem Animal

Everyone has an animal, bird or fish which holds a special meaning for them. This is not necessarily a pet or even a domestic animal; it could be foreign or even mythical

1. Take a walk in the woods just before dusk. Take the time to look at the trees and plants, to inhale the scent of the woods and listen to the sounds around you. 

2. Find an old tree and sit down beneath it. Close your eyes and lay your hands flat on the soil on either side of you and take a few deep breaths. 

3. Ask the Goddess to send you your Totem animal. 

4. Open your eyes and pick up the first thing you see lying on the ground near you. Take this home and place it under your pillow for three nights and your Totem animal will come to you in your dreams.

5. When you know what your Totem animal is, remember to look out for it in the world around you and to acknowledge this gift of the Goddess each time you see it

A way to fix a feder with a rattle in the handle with limited hardware.

This method should be considered temporary. It will not substitute a proper tune-up but it will keep your fittings from rattling until you arrange a proper repair.

  1. Rattling fixtures are caused -usually- by the wooden core of the grip compressing or being otherwise damaged, creating a gap (B) between the crossbar (A) and the wood. When new, the whole hilt assembly is held together by compression.
  2. Before you begin you must push both sides of the crossbar (A) towards the point of the blade thus exposing as much of the gap (B) as possible.
  3. Take a length of cord (A) and wrap it once around the gap (B).
  4. Apply a little glue (A) to the string as you continue to wind it around (B). A more abused feder will require more turnings of the cord to build structure in the gap.
  5. Pull both ends of the cord as tightly as you can (A) - using pliers as a lever can help. Note (!) that very little cord should be visible and it should be driven as deeply into the gap as possible. If cord remains outside you have applied too much. Feel the crossbar, if it has stopped rattling you have wound the string enough. Cut the ends of the cord (B) and secure them with a good amount of glue.
  6. In some cases there may be a gap at the other end of the hilt between the pommel and the wooden core. This gap is likely to be much smaller than the first but applying cord here can help.

Very interesting video about how torcs were created and worn…

create your own personalized trail mix and keep it in a bag or container in the office

here’s an idea:

- raw unsalted almonds
- raw unsalted walnuts
- unsulfured raisins
- lightly salted sunflower seeds
- raw pumpkin seeds
- dried unsulfured apricots
- carob or chocolate chips
- a shake of cinnamon and nutmeg

fill a few plastic bags with your trail mix and pass them out to other weary workers!

Do you make your own trail mix? What do you use?

Keep seeing girls with flawless eye makeup and envying them? It’s really not as hard as it looks! All you need is the right type of products and the right technique. 

I’ve seen many, many blending 101 videos, but I find this tutorial by cflowermakeup to be particularly good! Very descriptive, and explains why you do certain things during application. Educational AF.

I also like that the products she’s using here aren’t $100,000,000! Realistic for the masses! I don’t know about you - but I have bills to pay! 

Give it a go today, and let me know how you got on!

Have an eye makeup video/post you’d like featured on here? Drop me a message!

in many parts of asia it is believed that good health is maintained by a flow of energy called chi. by pressing particular points on the face, you can stimulate chi, relieve tension, and bring a glow to your cheeks!

let your fingers do the walking. with the pointer finger of each hand, find a spot on each side of your face and press gently but firmly for a few moments. do not rub or scrub. continue by pressing different spots around your face.
