100 Days of Anime, 77: Favorite Rivalry

Shizuo Heiwajima and Izaya Orihara - Durarara!!

Shizuo may hate violence, but when it comes to Izaya, he simply can't help himself! These two are positively mortal enemies, constantly trying to rid the world of the other! As much as I love friendly rivalries that pull together when it counts, I think these guys have to take the top spot for today's card!

Honorable Mentions

I almost had to change my lineup for yesterday since I find this and the previous two prompts to be very closely related, almost synonymous, 3 peas in a pod; I believe that the best friendships are bromances bonded by rivalries! However, that is not always the case, as you may see in this card! Here are my favorite rivalries which have not been acknowledged yet in this batch of cards:

L Lawliet and Light Yagami - Death Note

I love this intellectual rivalry! Under different circumstances, I think these boys could have been great friends, but one of them had to be a mass murdering psychopath (I love Light, but let's be real here, he went cuckoo)! They were constantly playing mind games with each other, each thinking 100 steps ahead, give or take another 100, trying to outmaneuver each other. I love the Sherlock-Moriarty dynamic they kinda had going on! (AMV - "Playing His Game" from NY Demo for Death Note Musical; I plan to do a card about it at some point)

Sadao Maou and Emi Yusa - Devil is a Part-Timer

Satan and the Hero! When Maou got stuck in our world, Emi followed him, determined to defeat him and see justice done. However, they were both left powerless. Emi decided she would at least keep an eye on him, and a strained kind of friendship sort of emerged.

Alucard and Alexander Anderson - Hellsing Ultimate

Father Anderson is a high ranking member of the Iscariot Organization, defending the Catholic church from supernatural threats, so Alucard, the vampiric dog of the Protestant Hellsing Organization, is a total affront to all that is holy to him. In the end Anderson sacrificed his humanity for the power to defeat Alucard, and Alucard was mortified that he had become a monster like him, insisting that he could only be defeated by a man, and was forced to put him down. It was a rare and deeply meaningful heartbreaking moment to see the great Alucard so sorrowful. I think he had great affection for Anderson, even if he was his rival; he had principles, unlike a certain other member of the Iscariot (see Day 41), and it hurt him to lose such a worthy adversary.

Nonon Jakuzure and Uzu Sanageyama - Kill La Kill

I just loved watching these Elite 4 members bicker! I honestly don't have much to say about it; it's just a glorious bit of comic relief! I think I ship ;)

Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto

Last but certainly not least, the almighty NaruSasu! These lonely boys have been bound by fate their entire lives. In the academy, Sasuke was always the prodigy, and, naturally, Naruto resented him a bit, just as Sasuke resented him, as Naruto was a bit of a nuisance back then. As part of team 7, their rivalry only grew, but they also grew closer, becoming like brothers. As Naruto improved his skills, Sasuke began to struggle to keep up, and his frustration drove him to seek more power, culminating in their battle at the waterfall when Sasuke admitted that Naruto had become his best friend. Their rivalry was really fun in the original series, and now I'm always eager to see them meet again to see when Naruto will finally get through to Sasuke (I'm a little over 320 episodes in, for some context).
As always, hope you enjoyed! If you wanna learn more about me/ be my friend/ be tagged in these, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm nice, I swear (mostly ;p)! Or I guess you can follow my 100 Days of Anime collection, or both if you feel so inclined!
Until next time! Please, feel free to share your thoughts/answers in the comments! I love discussion!

How to make a ring jewelry candle | Jewelry In Candles Rings
If you're looking for a way to make your home smell great, give jewelry candles a shot. These candles are made with real jewelry and actually burn down like regular candles. While they cost more than the regular run-of-the-mill scented candles you can buy at the store, they sure have an impressive visual effect that makes them worth it. This post takes us through all the steps involved in making your own jewelry candle and gives tips on how to get really creative with it. 1. What you'll need to make a jewelry candle To make a jewelry candle you'll need: candle wicks, votive holders, jewelry findings, jewelry, and essential oils (optional). To make a jewelry candle, you’ll need ingredients you can find at a jewelry store. The general ingredients are: Cotton (linen preferred, but hemp works as well) Eggs (colored varieties are greatest), Pellets or brick, Chaff Distilled white vinegar Freshly ground black pepper Oil These are the basic tools you’ll need to prepare the candles. It is recommended to invest in a candle maker for the process, as they make it a lot easier when applying the wax and other products to the candle. You can buy candles directly from jewelry stores or directly from cosmetic supply companies such as chemhalt — they make candle containers, handles, holders, and the like. Wire cutters, a small piece of cardboard, a tin can, and a knife are useful tools for cutting up candles for candles. To get started, take a wick from your jewelry store. For this jewelry candle, I used an ivory candle wick from Sally Hansen. Craft wax will usually work, but it’s probably a good idea to try wax candles if you choose to do so. Pellets and bricks should cost around $10 each, but if you can find them used, they’re probably not too expensive. You can also find candles pre-sterilized in jewelry stores. Next, you’ll need to find votive holders. I suggest purchasing gray votive holders because they’re easier to see your candle in the light. Next, you’ll need to find jewelry. You can buy jewelry at the jewelry from unrivaled candles, but it’s going to have to be colored. If you have a lot of pink jewelry, you can really use the candles to lighten up the room and make it feel more festive. 2. How to make a ring-shaped jewelry candle Ring-shaped candles are a neat way to make a candle that looks like jewelry. If you want to make one, you’ll need a candle mold, which you can get from unrivaled candles. It will give you the opportunity to make variations of the same ring shape that will fit nicely inside your candle mold. The jewelry candles we made had practical uses. One I made was a sort of travel mug that took up very little room. Another was meant to give off a warm ambiance in my office for cooking. First, you’ll need to empty your jewelry drawer. Then you’ll need clean, dry, and free of oils (unflavored) jewelry screws. And finally, you’ll need something that looks nice (preferably cotton). When used correctly, the jewelry screws will hold ceramic rods in jewelry molds and make the candle bigger and therefore better smelling. One way to clean your screw heads is with a cotton bud soaked in pink Master Cleaner (it comes in a can). You can also use a toothbrush dipped in it, but wire brush will also cause the jewelry to become powdery and you won’t be able to see the patterns that you’re creating or stain your fingers. Next, you’ll need to make your ring. As stated above, you want your beads to be wearable, not precious. These links will give you ideas for what kind of beads to use. You should be able to fit around 30–40 beads in your candle. Aside from choosing a distance between beads and ring, you may want to experiment with sewing or gluing the beads together. If you’re squirreling away in your jewelry drawer as little as I do, you’re probably bored of clicking pictures of plexiglass boxes and rings that look almost identical. To make your beads go in more easily, you can also use a special ring punch to punch them out. You’ll also need something to fill your candle with. 3. How to make a necklace-shaped jewelry candle If you're looking for a project to do with your daughter, or just for yourself, making a necklace-shaped candle is a fun project that can also be made in a variety of colors and styles. You can find all the materials you'll need at a craft store, and the project itself is pretty simple. You can use metal or plastic beads ornaments, ordinary household items, or jewelry. Beads can be purchased already made or otherwise perfected, and things can be salvaged that you may have discarded, like old locket pins, metal fish scales, ornaments from party stores, or even jewelry cut down to the right size or in the appropriate vintage settings.  The instructions for making your necklace candle are fairly flexible, and you can find extensive step-by-step instructions on the unrivaled candles website. The general steps are to cut the beads to size or to buy smaller versions of the beads you want.  You can make the candle factory scent or any of the pleasant scents like bay leaf or sandalwood. I opted for trying out a variety of real pieces of jewelry to scent. If you intend to just use a basic plastic beads jewelry box, you can find the instructions for making a jewelry box here. To start, lily of the valley scented candles are the way to go. Previously, I used beeswax candles with mixed results, so I was pleasantly surprised when I used a box of crystal jewelry beads. They are nice because they magnify the scent from your finger, creating an entire floral scent that goes well with the candles. You could also use real ball-peen hammers, moon balls, or stars as the candle-holder. 4. Making candles from other pieces of jewelry Ten years ago, I wanted to make a candle out of a ring from my jewelry collection. I thought it would be a fun project and a great way to re-purpose my old jewelry. I tried it and it worked. The result was a beautiful, personalized candle. I decided to make the same candle for my home to make it work better. I wanted it to last longer, look nicer, and smell like real jewelry. I didn’t want it to smell like replacement jewelry. I also didn’t want it to burn down like regular candles do, so I skipped the aluminum ring and went with sterling silver instead. To get started, I cut rings exactly the size and shape I wanted my candle to have! Then I decided on the design I wanted and the design I bought. I used hot glue to secure it to the metal ring. Before using the hot glue, I applied two coats of the wax of my choice. This includes Irish Moss, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel, and Loire Valley Rose. The wax flavor depends on the project or what you’re using it for. Now the fun part. If you have some jewelry already that you don’t need anymore, you can keep it or sell it. After all, you’re not trying to start a business here! I bought rings that repaired a hole I had in my finger. I also bought new earrings just because I thought they would fit better and look nicer in the candle. I sold my earrings after I made my jewelry candle. I used these rings as templates when cutting the rings for the wax candle. I taped them to the metal ring to keep track of where I was cutting. To attach the wax to the rings, I tried to be as accurate as I could. After applying the wax, I screwed in the metal bases to the rings and pressed the small screws into the top of the rings to secure. 5. Tips for making the best jewelry candles Making candles can be a fun and creative craft project. It’s also a great way to repurpose old jewelry you don’t wear anymore. Just melt down old necklaces and earrings, and then pour the molten metal into a mold to create a decorative candle you can burn and enjoy. The first thing you’ll need for making jewelry candle is jewelry. You can find jewelry melts easily online. you can search for a jewelry candle to see what is currently trending. There are tons of options, from traditional pieces like bandanas and medal charms to more modern pieces like earrings and bracelets. Once you have your metal, it’s time to find a gift idea for your loved one. There are so many ways you can show love for someone, from repairing an old broken engagement ring to simply buying them a beautifully-crafted jewelry candle that smells like their heart. What’s a way to give someone priceless as a surprise? While jewelry is an appropriate gift for many occasions, on Valentine’s Day, it’s especially sweet. You can use your existing jewelry collection to give the person a gift that will truly remind them of the special day. It will also make the person feel special. From necklaces to earrings, you can make dozens of look-alike gift items using jewelry melting wax. Fiddle with the sizing of the melted wax to get the perfect look and safety. Keep the gift wrapped in the original packaging and an unopened jewelry candle inside the gift box. Glue it to a small, square scrap of cardboard or envelope, and you’ve got a card they can use to proudly display their lovely gift to someone special. Some people make their jewelry candle permanent for extra love and care. It pretty much ensures the person who receives it is reminded of the special occasion from the moment they receive it.
