A Safe Space for Moogles

Snuggle me, I'm adorable!


For truth, justice, and things that go Boom.

So apparently this is a thing that is happening.

I may have mentioned this on Twitter a while back, buuut - Adventuresome Coworker is organizing a bunch of her friends into a Superhero Cosplay Group for Halloween, and - well, I could blame it all on her, but the fact is she blurted out I could go as She-Ra and I exploded with glee. I have nobody but myself to blame. So apparently I have seven months to put together a She-Ra costume. Which sounds like a long time, but I'm thinking I'm going to need every day of it. XD

(She-Ra = kind of my childhood hero. I mean like All Of Five Years Old childhood hero. Long before I was all about Trini. ....It was probably for the best that my 'boyfriend' at the time and I didn't know He-Man and She-Ra were twins.)

For reference, this is what she looks like. I'm thinking an overbust corset for the top part (because God knows me + spandex = BAD IDEA), and the gold bits could probably be done with craft foam and paint, but I have nooooo idea what I'm going to do about the sword. And if I have time I'd love to make a Swiftwind purse. (That's her horse. I used to have a toy of him, though he was pink plastic.)

Also? This She-Ra will be wearing flats, kthx.

(When is She-Ra going to get a reboot, dammit? That would be wicked awesome. Although with my luck Michael Bay would get ahold of her.)

Rewatching 'A Bridge Too Close'...

I find myself in a bit of an ethical quandary.

I don't think this is all that spoilery, but cut just in case. )

...Not that I'll be writing Megatron as a SNAD anytime soon, so don't worry. ;P

So, um, Saturday didn't quite go as planned. I was going to do that charity walk with Poptart, but check-in was at eight and we slept 'til almost, um, ten... ^_^;;; This is why I don't like asking people for monies. But Poptart said she'd send the charity peoples a check so all you kind people's donations don't just go into her toy fund. *...ducks!* You know I love you, Poptart. ;)

Anyway, it was a beautiful day and it would've been a waste to spend it inside, so we went to a local putt-putt place. ^_^ We both suck pretty hard at putt-putt, but we had a lot of fun, and, y'know, fresh air and exercise and all that. I got a bit of a sunburn 'cause I was wearing a sleeveless top, but not too bad considering all the sunburns I've gotten. *is paaaaale* And we also spent a little time at the arcade (skeeball ftw) and went around the track in go-karts. ^_^ *has Autobots clamoring for attention now* So, all in all a good day.

Also, I'm now caught up on TF:Ani. Bring on the smut!

EDIT: Why in the world wasn't this available before Botcon? A wrench I can throw at people and not give them a concussion! It would've been perfect! *flails!*

Speaking of Botcon, here's pics of me and Poptart fooling around taken by [info]mommimus_prime.

Random, mundane, boring stuff going on in my life. See also: Not Fandom.

I've misplaced my muse, so these are going to be a series of disjointed paragraphs.

So, I just applied to the volunteer program at the local animal shelter. Apparently they need people to Design Stuff too, so we'll see how that goes. ...It probably defeats the purpose of the whole thing (from my parents' POV) if I deliberately requested jobs that don't deal excessively with the Public. Ah well - you can take the hermit out of the cave, but you can't take the cave out of the hermit. Especially if the cave has Internet access.

School so far is pretty much more of the same. I've got Production I (the art of Printing Shit), Production II (package design - we played with templates and markers today, and I made a little box shaped like a Triadhouse*), and 3D modeling, which would be cool if the prof-what-I'm-not-too-fond-of would shut up and let me play. I'm told there will be more playing tomorrow. We're to make a cartoon head. I'll probably end up doing Ravage or something like that. (Speaking of which, no, self, you are not allowed to crochet a Ravage for display at Botcon. You have too much else to do and you'd be devastated** if you didn't get it done in time. Besides, you already promised Poptart you'd do a bomb.)

ALSO. Apparently "Ghost Hunters" is coming to the base to do a series on a couple of Allegedly Haunted places. My question is, isn't that something that we, as people who live here, should have been told when we moved in!? I mean, there's got to be some sort of full-disclosure clause when it comes to the restless dead. (I know they're probably harmless, but I just don't do well with ghosts. It's a weakness.)

Today my mom took me through the process of making french toast, presumably so I won't starve when I move out and can't afford Chinese. It turned out pretty good, so yay me.

In completely unrelated news, does anyone else remember David the Gnome? I used to watch this all the time as a kid, but people I described it to looked at me like I was nuts. I was starting to think I'd made it up.

Now that the non-fandom stuff's out of the way, I really need to work faster on my [info]springkink prompts, but I've got a touch of the writer's block: namely, Rude and Tifa just refuse to get laid. *grumble*

*One of the girls got a bit huffy about the whole thing - said something about paying thousands of dollars to go to college just to play with markers and glue. "I must be lucky," I said, "to be six years old on the inside." 'Cause seriously, that was just fun. And to think I was sure I'd hate this class.

**Ha ha.

I know, I know, I'm spamming. TF:ANIMATED IS WORTH IT.

Let me say that I am pleasantly surprised. Also rather relieved - I was prepared to have to go "well, it could have been a lot worse" and "they have to appeal to a wide audience". Instead, shock! The writers really did a good job!

TF:A, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. (Spoiler alert.) )

Dear Cartoon Network: I CAN HAS MOAR NAO?

Well. This has the potential to not suck.
