These last few weeks have been a whirlwind, but the end is near and I am so looking forward to Comikaze! Will anyone be attending? I will be roaming the halls on Saturday dressed as Captain Jack. If anyone spots the dashing hero, please do say hello! If you play Pokemon X or Y, be sure to say the secret password Sewer Chic and I will give you a rather lame Pokemon... but it comes with Pokerus so you can power level your EVs!
I hope everyone had a very happy Halloween and that November brings only good things.
Be good to each other!
The great Pokemon DebatePokemon has been a huge part of my life since the original Red and Blue games. My brother and I both begged, whined and pleaded until my parents (who are amazing!) got us each a copy for our giant brick of an original Game Boy system. I got blue, as you can probably guess from my journal skin.
Blue was fun, and I went the extra mile and beat the whole game over again in Yellow, falling for the gimmick of paying for the game all over again just to have Pikachu follow you around hook, line and sinker. Totally worth every penny, I should add.
But then... I fell away from the series, and I really can't give you a reason other than a combination of school and not liking the starter Pokemon. Pokemon was competing for my attention during college, when I was extremely short on both time and money, and against games such as Dragon Quest Monster, which just had a much bigger and more interesting breeding system... not to mention randomly generated dungeons! The DQM series
11 Years Today!I am so far behind! I have so many journals to write, so many stories to tell, so many pictures to share and so much to talk about! ...And I'm caught in that feedback loop of because I'm so behind, I'm putting off writing these things and because of that I'm getting even more behind. I'm so sorry, more will be coming soon, but I had something which I felt required a little post today.
Today is my 11th birthdAy. Eleven years haunting these green-gray walls, it seems crazy. It's amazing how much art and deviantART has influenced and changed the course of my life. I've seen so much amazing art, met interesting and mind-blowingly talented people and even crossed paths with a few of my heroes along the way. It's always an honor and an adventure to serve the deviantART community, and I'm so happy that dA is in my life.
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this adventure, here's to eleven more!
SDCC... with a Dashing Hero like Me!In just a few more days I'll be heading off to San Diego for Comic-Con, and I am so excited I can't even with this!! Today gave me a taste of what is to come, because I got to take my cosplay for a trial run! $aunjuli had a craft fair at Whimsic Alley here in LA, and I showed up in costume to help promote her Doctor Who teas. She took some amazing photos, check 'em out!
$aunjuli will be in costume too, if you see either of us at SDCC, you should totally say hi. We may potentially have tea samples.
Also! I should mention that Aun-Juli is my hero. OMG I would love to meet John Barrowman and get photos while I'm in costume. I'm a nerd, I can't help it, guys. I'm ridiculously anxious to see if ~TeamBarrowman tweets back. A girl can dream.
So yes, the purple hair is on
San Diego Comic-Con!The excitement is building and time is running out!
I will be attending SDCC again this year, working Artists' Alley, as in the past few years. I'm so excited to get to hang with old friends and meet new, awesome artists and deviants. You can find me in dA's booth half the time, I'll be sure to put up when you can find me once I get my schedule. I will be cosplaying again this year during my off time. I'll have some teaser photos soon.
I also have the great honor of speaking on a panel this year! If you want to check it out, or have an interest in fan art, please come by! The Business of Fanart panel will be on Friday at noon in Room 2 Upper Level. I'll be speaking along side `Artgerm, *BrianKesinger and :devmakepitures:, as well as people from Baby Tattoo Books and Mighty Fine Inc, who make awesome t-shirts. You can find out more about the panel, our other panels and our general time at Comic-Con <b>
The Labyrinth of JarethLast night was the 16th annual Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade, and it was magical! It was my third year attending, and I feel like my costume is finally taking shape! I got to see some amazing costumes, hang with great people and check out amazing art, accessories and masks for sale. While the ball did not start until 8PM, my prep started at 4:30, when I began the long task of using liquid latex to cement feathers to my arms. The previous weeks were spent modifying my ball gown, adding a bustle to my dress, sewing feathers and adding lights!
My owl mask was made by the amazing *windfalcon, you should check out her amazing stuff.
I went with $IreneAdler76, and once there, we met up with $aunjuli and her man. Inside, we met all kinds of amazing costumes and creatures!
How dA Muro Redraw saved my baconAs I briefly went into on my last journal entry (as I'd like to not dwell on it), my 3DS XL (that is a hand held gaming unit, the current Game Boy for those of you who do not speak gamer geek!) was stolen out of my pocket while walking home from work. No one is hurt and it's all pretty much been resolved now, largely thanks to deviantART Muro's Redraw feature.
Let me tell you a thing.
I had my DS registered with Club Nintendo, and simply checking my account showed the serial number of the DS unit which was stolen. Easy peasy, I just had to call Nintendo when they opened and write it down for when I went to file my police report. I got a replacement DS, registered it and went about trying to make my night as normal as possible, so I wouldn't dwell. The next morning, over a cup of coffee, I called Nintendo's customer service and threw myself at their mercy, asking for any and all help they could give me. It was all well and good until I opened my Club Nintend
Comic-Con! ...and lolWell, it has been one heck of a day! I'll be attending Comic-con... and I will be speaking on a panel! Check it all out in this article! I'm so excited, I cannot wait to see old friends there, meet new people, see amazing art and celebrate geekery! This is possibly my favorite event of the year and I hope to see both new and old friends there.
As Merlin taught me in The Sword in the Stone: For every up there is a down.
I left work this evening excited for my panel and eager to link friends and family. I was about ten feet from my apartment... when a guy sprinted past me and stole my DS out of my pocket. I shouted and chased him for a few blocks, but no luck in getting it back. Such is life. I've located a replacement and am hoping Nintendo will help me out in getting at least a few of my purchased download games back. It's kind of shocking to have something like th
Thank you all!Thank you all so very much for all of the birthday wishes, I'm simply overwhelmed. I gave myself a couple days off work for my birthday, so I'm scrambling now to catch up on everything and coffee just isn't kicking in too fast this particular morning. So, apologies if I don't reply to you straight away, please know that I love you all and appreciate every birthday wish! I have read them all and will be replying soon.
My birthday was great, got to hang out with several amazing friends, was showered with plushies and toys and owl goodies, as well as some amazing high-end scotch and Animal Crossing. What can I say? Life is good.
I hope you are all having a great week, I'll have some more updates soon! Be good to each other.
