Markers! I've been trying to learn how to use them.



First, a quick self-portrait I did to commemorate my 20th birthday! L-LOOKIN' GOOD .__.;; The lights in this room heat it up really quickly so I am usually in varying states of undress when working. Also I just prefer not wearing clothes to wearing clothes, screw clothes, I don't have time for that shit.

...

The hat I got to wear with my plague doctor mask/Anime North costume--it's like wearing a small black hole on your head! Good for keeping the sun out of your eyes, though.



Then I learned that it is VERY VERY IMPORTANT to use the right kind of paper with markers or else everything will go heart-breakingly wrong.



This I did on paper that was thick and soft and fibrous and it ruined two of my markers and turned out blotchy and horrible. Experienced XTREME!! frustration trying to make the sky not be all streaky (as you can see I did no succeed).

OH AND DID SOMEONE SAY "DIMENSION HOPPING DEMON LADIES"?? No? Oh well.



Clearly the best way to acquaint oneself with a new medium is with FIVE ZILLION LEAVES, yeah?

...

Outfit for Anime North (and whereever else I feel like going dressed as an anachronistic-magpie-nightmare) involves wings that will hopefully look and function rather like this (but more magpie-ish), so I've been making feathers and... making more feathers. SO MANY FEATHERS. I must keep telling myself it is worth it, haha.

Some of the iridescent secondary feathers:



aaand I need to get my ass back into gear and PAINT MORE FEATHERS. You guys it is not a very stimulating or fulfulling task. WINGS WILL BE AWESOME, WINGS WILL BE AWESOME, KEEP TELLING MYSELF THIS....

EDIT: OH ALSO, not that I haven't mentioned this before, but this is my tumblr, I post a lot of nonsense.

Halloween!

doctorconquest: (mononoke - stopped me in my tracks)
mostly I slept through it! my stomach is misbehaving and I seem to be fending off a potential UTI (whyyyyyy). anyway, I did nothing but listen to the dog bark repeatedly as kids came to our door and I wore no costume because I am saving my costuming funds for



future plague doctor cosplay!!


plague doctor outfit will not involve witch hat or awesome crop-top hoodie, but it will involve syringes and possibly roping others into my cosplaying madness.

also, when will I stop listening to Gaba Kulka's cover of "London Calling" on repeat? NEVER, because it is the best thing and she is amazing.
