Huh.

I'm on the cover of the TFCC Official Magazine.

(To the left of Giant Starscream, heh.)

...Huh.

Botcon Photos, part 1!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Oasis has the ones of Galvatron vs. Giant Starscream. And of Galvatron eating Pocky. But these should also be amusing!

Lots and lots of peekchurs. Slow connections will choke. )

So. Um. Yes. As you can see, we had fun. ^_^

*sorts through peekchurs*

Still working on photos from Botcon. Here, have some skibbles to hold you over 'til then.

Nothing really objectionable, though Starscream's dignity objects. )

The Botcon Report!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Ta-da! The Botcon Report! ...Well, mostly it's just me transcribing all my voice posts (minus the um's and uh's) with some additional notes. Since the voice posts are LJ-exclusive, I might as well do this for my IJ and DW friends too. <3

Long post is long and rambly. )

Picture post and a few skibbles coming soon. Oasis has some of the pictures I want to post, since my camera died Sunday afternoon.

*thud*

Well, I'm back from Botcon and safe at home. Tired, have to go to work tomorrow, more later.

In the final stages of packing

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Namely, going over my list Just One More Time trying to figure out what I've forgotten. Because I have forgotten something. That's just how it is.

I've got some pieces up on my new dA account if you'd like a sneak peek of what I'll be selling at Botcon. ;) (Yes, of course I have to show off.)

I'll be careful. I'll have fun. I'll take lots of pictures and post them up. I'll remember my sunscreen and Hat. Anything else? No? Good. Take care, y'all, I'll see you Sunday evening.

June 14th, 2010

Holy shit, is Botcon really in a week and a half?

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
*crochets like a madwoman* XD ...You know, making superheroes these days is more complicated than it was in the Golden Age. I've got a sort of idea for a thread-and-cloth telekinetic after crocheting so much, but I'm having trouble with her origin story. It's not like I can just have her be bitten by a radioactive blouse.

Also, meme ganked from [info]artoni: Ask me one fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general.

Just one question, please, but it can (and perhaps should) have sub-parts.

Question can be as wacky as you want. Ask me about tv shows, characters, fanfic in general, fandom issues/meta, anything about any of my stories specifically. Whatever you want.


Y'all know my fandoms. ;)

Defeat is everything; my power is absurd! ...wait, that doesn't sound right.

Ahem. Ladies, gentlemen, and differently gendered individuals.

I present to you: GALVATRON. )

June 6th, 2010

Probably not related to the previous post.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Okay. So I've got the structure of the Galvatron costume done. Still got some detailing do, but the hard bit is over with! HOWEVER. I've run into a bit of a logistical problem.

Since I don't have an icon of Galvatron on IJ, I'd like you all to go look him up on Google Images. Specifically, Galvatron's cannon. I'll wait.

...

Notice how it was jutting out straight from Galvatron's forearm? Yeah, that's because it is made of metal. Now building things with metal presents its own set of problems, but I will say this for it: you tell it to be a shape, and barring natural disasters or superheroes with something to prove, it stays that shape.

My Galvatron's cannon? Like the rest of him, it is made out of Fun Foam. I chose Fun Foam because it was light and easy to work with, but like metal, it has its own problems, and this became apparent when I examined the finished cannon. It does not stay rigid. In fact, it is rather flaccid. Limp, even. It droops from my forearm piece, and then the whole piece sort of rotates around so it's hanging upside-down from my arm.

CLEARLY THIS IS A PROBLEM.

So. I need something LIGHT and RIGID to help Galvatron out with his Little Problem. I have had chicken wire and dowels suggested on Twitter - any other ideas from the engineers in the audience?

(If all else fails, there's always Viagra.)

*thud* No work done on my costume tonight.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I hope no one minds if I leave the tail off His Tyrannical Purpleness. Not only would it be a bitch and a half to construct, it would make it impossible to sit. (How does Galvatron sit comfortably with that thing anyway? Maybe he subspaces it.)

*pokes dubiously at materials*

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I... don't know if I can do this costume thing. I don't even know where to start.

*poke poke*

April 15th, 2010

Well, it's official now. Botcon-bound moogle!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I just bought my plane tickets. ^_^ Going to Botcon! With my yarnthings to sell, no less. I'm starting to run out of full skeins, but I've still got some remnants. Maybe I can make some small stuff still. (Or make a striped scarf, but all those ends to weave in - ugh. XP)

And I should really devote this weekend to sorting out my costume. I haven't touched it since 'Boots was here. *pokes it worriedly* ...Of course, once it's done I can start practicing my bwah. ;D

March 6th, 2010

And they said it would never work! Mwahahahahaha!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, I wasn't at all sure this would work, but my sigil hats are a rousing success! *bounces around the room* I found some no-sew iron-on stuff and it works like a charm. (As I may have mentioned before, I Can't Sew. ...If I ever make a craft blog, that will be the title. XD)

Decepticon hat - real mechs wear pink!

Autobot hat, with bonus Bumblebee wristythingies.

It says something that I'm willing to overcome my instinctive 'oh god I hate pictures of myself' reaction to post these. But at least you all can see how long my hair has gotten.

Now I'm making some Decepticon wristies, with a cable. Mwahahaha. >D *mad yarn scientist!*

February 9th, 2010

I think all the snow is starting to get to me.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Finished my first hat to sell at Botcon - well, the actual hat part, anyway. The sigil to be affixed thereon will have to wait a bit. Also, I've been playing around with recording myself in Photo Booth, and throwing tracks together in Garage Band, and it's occurred to me that the three-part opening episode to Transformers would make a way cool musical.

SOMEBODY STOP MEH

January 6th, 2010

Lots of writing, designing, and comicking to do....

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
...and what do I do? I run out and buy a PSP. XD I got some monies for Winterthing and aside from student loans and future Botcon funds, it's really just all sitting there. Maybe I should invest some of it, I dunno.

First thing I did was download FF7, of course. *eyerolls at self*

On the subject of Botcon, I'm going to contribute some crochet pieces to Poptart and Oasis's art table, but the design isn't going well. I'm not really getting the results I want for the scarf with the sigil crocheted in two-color tapestry. *frowns and pokes at it* I'm thinking I should do iron-on sigil patches on hats and wristlets instead - easier to control shape and it doesn't have to be perfect. Of course, I'm open to ideas.
