Haley part two from Stardew Valley! She is a cutie pie! and up next is more pictures of my Penny cosplay! I wasn’t happy that I only got like two good pictures of my last shoot…maybe I’ll post more from my first shoot >.<. until then enjoy more haley>

(Edit I posted penny’s already before this) This whole cosplay is a closet cosplay and costed less than 5 USD excluding the wig and shoe. The shoes were 5 USD, and the wig was around 40 USD (real human hair is the reasoning) with added weave (real human hair)  of 20 USD.

BTS reaction to their son wanting to be a disney princess for halloween

Seokjin

Jin is all in. Partner costume and everything.

“You can be Princess Peach and I’ll go as Mario! My little pink princess jr.”

Yoongi

Yoongi would be very supportive and protective. He wouldn’t wear a dress but he would let your son paint his nails and put clips in his hair.

*When another parent asks him why his and your son’s nails are painted*

“It’s fashion, duh.”

Namjoon

Joonie doesn’t question it at all. He might even wear a dress too, but he would mutter “swag” constantly and always strike a dramatic pose when you try to take pictures.

“We look fabulous, okay.”

Hoseok

Hobi would be the proudest dad ever, carrying his son on his shoulders and singing songs from the movie.

“Salaca doo la menthicka boo la bibbidi-bobbidi-boo Put ‘em together and what have you got? bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!”

Jimin

Minnie would be completely charmed when he sees your son in his floofy dress. He spends the entire evening taking pictures and slipping candy into your son’s bag.

“Look at him! He’s adorable!”

Taehyung

TaeTae is also super hyped. He helps to make the mermaid costume and goes as flounder himself. He also volunteers to go trick or treating with the kids of your neighbourhood.

Jeongguk

Kookie is the father that looms behind his son while trick or treating, daring people to say something rude.

“You have something to say, Barbara?”

So last Tuesday night I finally decided what to cosplay for the Adventure Zone live show at comic con on last Friday night. Three days and thirty dollars later I present my void fish costume feat. rolling duck buddy. I am so glad I was able to make it in time for the amazing show!! Everyone there was so cool and seeing the boys in the flesh was everything I hoped for. 

It has been a while since any project on this scale came together with so few hitches and I am really proud of how it turned out!

my friend was upset tonight so naturally I decided to spam them with pictures of fish costumes and honestly I had a ball

so I’m gonna share them with you now. Get ready for a wild ride.

let’s start simple

real simple

“haha see I have fins! haha help me

lots of nemos going around

some of them more terrifying than others

it’s like he’s wearing horse blinders I’m

okay well this one has the colours I guess

are you serious

how many sexy fish costumes could there possibly - 

okay but surely - 

are you serious WE ALL KNOW YOU DIDN’T NEED TO GIVE THE JELLYFISH EYES

not sure how the fuck we’re supposed to feel about this one

BUT HEY WHILE WE’RE GETTING FREAKY

someone save him

give em the ol razzle dazzle

this is why NASA won’t explore the ocean

like what is this A DEMENTOR FISH?? IT EATS SOULS BUT ALSO FISH FLAKES???

alright let’s get back to some friendlier content

we agreed this one would be me

this guy’s just happy to be invited to the party

this one’s kinkshaming you

this one is very possibly my favourite

and these guys are the grand finale because I have so many questions?? But I don’t want a single one answered look at this. Fish on segways. Amazing.

Okay thank you for your time.

This is the first dragon tail commission this month! It’s made of anodized aluminum, primarily black with a purple underbelly. It’s got a full line of chrome spikes down the spine. It’s also got a lobster clasp at the tip to attach things to. It measures in at 37 inches long, and weighs 4 lbs 1 oz.

Tail #2 coming up shortly!

I was asked what would the sisters look like if instead of chosing profane they were to chose a sacred life.
I thought that was an interesting and fun question so the first thing that came to mind was this outfit for Nicoli/Colapesce.

These are actually from my Penny shoot last year >.<. These are the ones I didn’t really like! But I’ll post them anyways! <3 I actually learned a lot from this shoot on how to deal with her wig! That’s the main reason *and also my shiny face* on why I didn’t really like any of the pictures. So next time I do better photos I know how to deal with her wig! I want to re wear her due to Miss Penny <3 That fanfiction is too cute! especially since I married Alex! But Until I get more pictures in here is some from my last shoot!

Plur bunny! I saw a few ladies with these fluffy tops and they’re so cute. I love the pastel purple colors. Awesome idea as well to layer the leg wraps lower just above the knee light knee socks.
