Not a game was skipped over, even Combat Evolved;
The games were shelved at the midnight premier,
In hopes that Master Chief would soon be theirs;
The nerds were nestled, all snug in the Gamestop,
With visions of Chief fighting until the Didact had dropped
The key in the car, the game now in my lap,
Waking the Chief from his long four-year nap;
When outside of the Dawn, there arose a clatter,
John sprang the Cryo Chamber to see what was the matter;
Away towards the exit, the remote detonator clashed,
Tore open the metal, 117 was back;
Covenant forcing the Dawn's engines to go,
Sent it flying down fast, to Requiem below;
A 10/10, worth the 60 dollars,
Now seeing a knight, with 8 tiny crawlers;
With my Assault Rifle, so fluent and quick,
I knew in a moment the game would be sick;
More rapid than Slip Space, The Didact's ship ready to reign,
And he whistled and shouted, Covenant and Forerunner names;
"Now Elites and Grunts and Jacka

Today I made some jewelry and a glove.
I'll be also starting my prop tonight!
I also uploaded some better quality photos from my Nikon D40.
Previous WIP photos from this cosplay were taken with my mobile phone, lol, Nokia N9.
Sorry for the bad quality!
Ohhh lol xD
Only tonight and tomorrow left!
Btw, have I told you about my diet and gym?
I'v been hitting gym 3 times a week for over 3 months now.
I was eating like 500-1000kcal/day over my normal routine to gain weight and muscles.
Dunno if that helped, I managed to raise my weight to 85kg!
Also hit some new records on gym. Trained bench press (I'm really a novice on it, I'v always been a bit scared about bench pressing because I'm so tall and skinny) and now I can lift almost 100kg!
So, now I'v been dieting, eating only meat to gain protein and some salad + vitamins, and drinking LOTS OF WATER), for the past 2 weeks.
I'v lost 6kg so far. Now I'm somewhere between 77-79kg. I'm really out of muscle energy be

How to Make Your Own Belt BuckleA lot of people have asked how I made my X-Men and Deadpool belt buckle, so here's a tutorial on how to make your very own!How to Make Your Own Belt Buckle5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Easy Cast Clear-Casting Epoxy Resin
Milliput Epoxy Putty
A Round Belt Buckle (preferably a buckle blank, but nearly any round buckle will do. I found this buckle on clearance at Hot Topic for 5 dollars, and it worked fine.)
STEP ONE: If the belt buckle you've chosen has a design engraved on it, you'll need to smooth out the surface. If not, skip to step Two.
To smooth out the surface of the buckle, Lay the belt buckle flat on the poster board (Be sure that the buckle is flat! If it's not, the surface will come out uneven.) Mix the resin together in a styrofoam cup. It shouldn't take much. I only used about two spoonfuls (One for the resin itself and one for the hardener). Be sure to follow the instructions that came with the resin on how to mix it properly. After it's fully mi

his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

The sun is becoming bright on the land.
No one is watching as he comes a walking.
Two bulky suitcases hang from his hands.
He heads towards the tower that stands in the campus.
He goes through the door, he starts up the stairs.
The sound of his footsteps, the sound of his breathing,
The sound of the silence when no one was there.
I didn't really know him.
He was kind of strange.
Always sort of sat there.
He never seemed to change.
He reached the catwalk. He put down his burden.
The four sided clock began to chime.
Seven AM, the day is beginning.
So much to do and so little time.
He looks at the city where no one had known him.
He looks at the sky where no one looks down.
He looks at his life and what it has shown him.
He looks for his shadow it cannot be found.
He was such a moody child, very hard to touch.
Even as a baby he never smiled too much. No no.No no.
You bug me, she said.
Your ugly, she said.
Please hug me, I said.
But she just sat there
ON GOING ARMEDIt has become a bit controversial to carry weapons, but I carry anyway. Openly: knife and pistol.ON GOING ARMED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
People who raise an eyebrow get a friendly smile and explanation.
People who whine get a polite but stern explanation.
Honestly, most people seem to assume I'm a policeman... others for reasons I cannot imagine take me for a bounty hunter. Most seem quite surprised when I say "no, sir/ma'am - I'm just a law abiding citizen exercising my natural right and responsibility to see to my own protection."
It does help to be perfectly friendly and open about it.
And it helps to get it in your bones that there really is nothing odd about going armed.
If you honestly believe it and feel totally natural about it, it seems to disarm most people's anxiety (*most* people, not all. people who carry their anti-gun obsession around like a club to beat people with cannot be reached - they have religion: shun them).
But the thing is - people who go armed in a manner or with an attitude of making a big stink
