denver comic con

King Manwë, the breath of Arda. My new painting! I recently posted it on ArtStation too! https://www.artstation.com/artwork/bD5LG  . He’s based out of Tolkien’s, The Silmarillion. 

I’ve seen people who have been upset and/or making fun of Karl Urban’s post initially from when he first posted about Anton Yelchin. What I’m not sure these people know is that Mr. Urban was literally in the middle of Denver Comic Con, signing autographs and taking pictures with various fans when he got the news. 

I can’t say for certain the timing but I was in line at Brent Spiner’s table when Mr. Urban abruptly got pulled out of his line yesterday (Sunday) morning. He was gone for a “break” for almost an hour and when he finally came back, I overheard more than one person say his eyes were red as if he’d been upset about something. A little bit after that, news of Anton’s death started hitting the con floor. 

So the point of this is to give you an idea of what his head-space was probably like when that post was made and what he was doing. He’d undoubtedly been talking with fans about Star Trek and the cast and filming and it wouldn’t surprise me if Anton came up a time or two before he got the news. You never know what people are doing when they get news like that so please, for all that is holy, stop it about Karl Urban’s response. Have some respect.

“Killing you and giving you advice aren’t mutually exclusive.”

Today I donned the completed corset and headpiece for my first attempt at cosplay: Portal character GLaDOS.  It required a number of nearly sleepless nights, but it was, I believe, worth it.  In fact, I only finished it this morning, a mere hour before departing for Denver Comic Con for the afternoon.

Many thanks to my husband (always my “stalemate associate”) for helping me to cut boning in order to get it done in time.  And to the 30 or so people at DCC who stopped me and asked for a picture, let alone the countless who I heard whispering about me while walking by.
