After AbunaiconWhat a weekend.After Abunaicon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kelly and I are finally back home after a very early flight back to London. I have to say, it was all worth it.
Abunaicon was truly fantastic! It was great meeting some of our followers from the Netherlands and pretty much everyone we met was just lovely!
It was a great test run for Gambit (my sclera contacts arrive tomorrow!!) and I've now decided to make a Human!Wheatley cosplay. Ha ha! It will be fun to be an idiotic character again.
Highlights of Abunaicon:
*Judging the Eurocosplay.
*Being chased by Batman.
*Creating world domination plans with the Joker and Harley while dressed as Loki.
*Invading panels and generally being mental.
*Killing Coulson over and over and over and OVER again!
*Squaring off to a certain Hawkeye everytime I saw her.
*ALL THE DESSERTS!!!
*Being told by four people that I look like Tom Hiddleston.
Twas an AMAZING weekend just so tiring. Phew! I really hope we can come back next year and share in all the fun. Now to plan for Alcon!

"We Decepticons... now stand at our darkest hour", huh? As I recall it, Megatron was the one who said those words. And this season finale of TFP s.2, was REALLY at the Darkest Hour. But not for the Decepticons, no, they were facing their brightest new dawn in, I don't know, EONS? I've always rooted for BOTH of the teams, it may sound strange to you Decepticon-fans who swam around my page for TFP:Eons Ago, but somehow, I've always loved how the Autobots have always found a way to crawl back into the light, even at their darkest hours. Of course, then again, I've always rooted for t

Due to a timewaster on the previous auction, I'm putting this up for sale again. I'm imposing a strict 72 hour payment requirement, so the winner MUST pay within three days of the auction ending. If you bid on the wig, but do not win, keep an eye on your inbox anyway. If the winner doesn't pay in time, I'll offer it to the next highest bidder, and so on, until a payment is made. Basically, even if you don't win, you may still be in with a chance
I'll also be putting my Org Coat, and some other bits, up soonish. I'll post links when that happens.
That's all for now. DFTBA!

I feels a bit surreal. Lately I had been feeling a bit lost with what I wanted to do after I graduated college. While I had a degree in Computer Animation, jobs are competitive, and there's no real guarantee that someone in the field will keep their job for more than a few years with how bad the economy is right now. I tried applying to film festivals to build up my resume, but wasn't very successful. And Kyle has it worse than I do; with an Illustration degree, there aren't a whole lot of options for him besides freelance work. There was one possible opportunity in the area that he could

Myself, VandorWolf and Valdrein got into London Saturday morning and after going through the obstacle course that is the International Visitors way through Gatwick airport we were greeted by a sleepy KellyJane who had woken up at 5am or something crazy like that to come get us at the airport (weloveyou). We spent the day with Parle in stinky plane clothes and with about 3 hours of sleep each which just made everything far more magical (except for the magic show we watched in Oxford Circus which was crap...

This part of the tutorial is mostly thanks to my wife chibinis-chan who did the modeling for it.
She is doing her eye make-up after applying basic make-up like shown before. She will show you one make-up with different colors. I'm holding this tutorial very short with just the steps as such because I already wrote all the tips for applying in the first part of this tutorial.
First she is using black kajal to draw a line on the eyelid and under the waterline of her right eye. The line under her eye is about 1/3 of the complete length of the waterline.
After this she uses brown eye shadow to blend it a lit

Q: Where did you get your wig?
A: My Finn made it for me. It was made out of two long wigs-- one 48 inch, one 60 inch. They were purchased on Ebay. I don't know the seller, sorry!
Q: How did you do the makeup?
A: It is Ben Nye Character Series cream makeup in Ghoul Grey (CB-8). It was applied using latex makeup sponges and sealed with Ben Nye Neutral Set Colorless Powder and hairspray. I do not recommend using hairspray unless you have someone helping you apply the makeup.
You can buy it here: http://www.frendsbeautysupplyonline.com/bennyecharacterbasecb-8ghoulgrey.aspx for only $3.40!
Q: How much makeup did you use?
A: Evicted! : Medium Coverage (face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, hands)
Henchmen: Medium Coverage (face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, hands)
It Came From the Nightosphere**: Minimum Coverage (face, neck, hands)

Hello my dears
So, AAC was a blast and I'm currently waiting to hear whether or not I have a table at Anime Boston this coming year. :/ I should hope so, since I signed up the minute I could. Stupid AB with their crazy, unorganized scheduling. They had an art contest I had entered for a free table and I didn't win, but I did get an honorable mention, so I guess that's better than nothing lol.
Anyway, my #1 focus right now is my webcomic (well, more like web-epic), The Lumis Altar. I don't have a lot of support for it yet, but I guess that's to be expected when you only have 13 pages up and the main character hasn't even been introduced. I assure you, it's going to be worth the wait. I realize that there are thousands of we
