dragon's musings

Beauty without kindness and bravery is just a pretty empty shell, my dear. And you can find plenty of those on the beach. People use them to decorate their rooms. So I hope you aspire to be so much more than just beautiful. I hope you aspire to be so much more than a pretty little thing that decorates the room you walk into.

God-Pharaoh Bolas at GP Manila 2017

Aaaaah finally! The costume’s done, I wore it, and it was fun. Hard to move around with the wings but still manageable. 

  • I followed the Bolas silhouette through the end. Long body, short legs, big wings, small head, so no long hair.
  • The wings turned out a little different but I’d rather have fabric moving with the wind than stretched-out membranes, to be honest. I love stuff like that.
  • The contrast of the blue against the gold armor can really make them stand out, especially in the dark.
  • Lots of people took pictures, which was nice.
  • We got a few prints and tokens, plus several cards signed. I actually need the tokens this time.

// OK..but like… Maevaris and Dorian meeting up in the Herald’s rest in Sky hold to have a drink. And they’re chatting and giggling. But they’re chatting in Tevene not common tongue. And so everyone is looking at them confused/terrified because what are they plotting that’s making Dorian grin like that???? Meanwhile they’re talking about casual things. Dorian tells Mae about the week he had to spend camping in the Hinterlands and they share a good chuckle. Then they both realize the uncomfortable looks being sent their way. And so still speaking in Tevene Dorian leans closer “Oh Mae, darling I do believe we’re attracting attention.” “I’ve noticed. Should we move closer as if we’ve been caught conspiring to take over the south?” “Mae, I thought a lady avoided mischief.” “I’ve spent too much time around troublemakers it seems. Mainly you.” “Oh! You wound me my dear!” And they both cackle harder than they have before and the Chargers all turn to Krem like “???!!!?!?!?!???!” And Krem with a deadpan expression says. “You all should be worried they are plotting terrible things.”

Fun fact if you write “(character) thought they were asexual, until they met the one person who changed that” fanfiction you have to give the nearest asexual person twenty bucks per chapter sorry I don’t make the rules.

Also if you claim the character is (name)-sexual you have to pay every demisexual person that reads it 20 bucks per use of the word.

I think this was taken the other day? Yeah? Missing from this were the larger staff and the shoes, plus i haven’t started on the wings and leg armor. There’s still a few spots that need covering. 

Yesterday I made a new head piece with the thicker rubber. Fits snugly on the head more than the first one here. The new, unfinished horns are also significantly larger than the first set.
