Happy Wednesday! Happy October 1st! Happy Gilmore Girls is now on Netflix Day! I'm up to a couple different things - all of which are completely unrelated.
Dark Tower Beam Guardian Scarf - Lion and Eagle
At this exact moment the Lion and Eagle scarf is at 23" and I'm hoping to get at least 10" more done today. Maybe more. I'm really flying through this thing and I'm super happy with the lion. I need to go back and look at the eagle pattern I made again. Each time I look at it, I like it less. The first version looks like a parrot-vulture-monster. I did another sketch and I need to grid it then see what happens. The smaller width of the scarf really limits the detail I can give the guardians and without detail eagles apparently don't look much like eagles. I won't give up though...Gan willing. lol *winkwink*
I have to confess - Sailor Moon Crystal and the subbed Sailor Moon being available on Hulu has me super stoked about Sailor Moon again. I'm even reading the manga for srs now. I was really into Sailor Moon in middle school...many years ago. I never become one of those major anime nerds, but I really enjoyed Sailor Moon in a normal, healthy way (I think). It's fun and ridiculous.
I've finally accepted the fact that I have the body of a 12-year-old boy and there's nothing I can do about it unless I get fat - at which point I would have the body of a 12-year-old, fat boy. It's about time that I cosplayed someone that my body type is actually close to. Yeah, my Zer0 suit was good, but I'm like a foot and a half too short. My Miranda Lawson suit was ok, but I don't have her knockers. You know who I could totally rock though? Sailor Motherfuckin' Saturn. The Sailor Scout of Destruction. Haters gonna hate! Bakers gonna bake!
My Silence Glaive is only about 4' tall at the moment. I need to acquire another wrapping paper tube with the same diameter then I can carry on. I'm going to make sure it's good and sturdy with a layer or two of duct tape and then I'm going to start pulling out some of the details with duct tape as well. Then - and now here is where shit gets insane - I'm going to crochet OVER it. I'm going to then cross stitch the highlights and shadows - cell-shading style. Because I am insane. I'm going to crochet the entire suit, starting with the gloves because I think they'll be the hardest. First though, the Beam Guardian scarves.
Some Untitled Oil Painting
This has nothing to do with anything else. I'm doing an oil painting to donate to a non-profit in the area. Obviously this is only the sketch. I'll actually start putting paint on the canvas at some point in the near future. They're going to sell it. My name will be on it. I never paint. I suffer from severe Neverinspiratedbyanythingitis. Will paint for fund raising...apparently? Maybe it'll look ok. I need some new brushes and I also hate oil paints. Acrylic 4 lyfe, bitches. I'm painting with oil because I want to see if I still hate it. We'll see.
