Finished a small comic. One day I was thinking how I don’t like Homestuck anymore, then I thought about a con I really want to attend and the cosplay I really wanted to do. don’t know if you noticed, but I REEEEAAAALLY hate drawing backgrounds there’s a John Egbert and a Fandomstuck at my left in the second panel.

I think I may have very breifly mentioned this before, but. In February, I am going to Kupocon, and am sharing an artist alley table with lilly-white. Lilly would obviously be doing her proper arty thing, but the idea of me being there was that we would collaborate to create printed compilation books of my fanfics illustrated with her drawings. Basically like the doujinshi artists who produce novel doujinshi.
The longer I have to think about it, the more I worry that the endeavour is going to be a whole lot of work for no return. Printing books is expensive, if they don’t sell I’m going to end up a good £100 or so at least out of pocket. And if the books won’t sell, Lilly could use that time to be working on her projects that will sell instead of the illustrations for my dumb-ass shit.
I was always planning to offer up any left over for people on Tumblr to buy, but I don’t even know if anyone here would want such a thing! Hence, feeler post.
Details are below the cut (including approximate prices, page counts, and what stories would be included). IF YOU THINK YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED IN BUYING ONE, PLEASE LIKE THIS POST.If it’s not your thing, that’s cool, feel free to ignore this post and just keep on scrolling.
(Don’t worry, I’m not holding anyone accountable for this (I’m automatically going to assume the actual of number of takers would be half of the response I get, because shit happens and not everyone will have the funds at the right time or whatever), it’s really just to see if it’s viable or not. If I only get two or three responses, even on Tumblr, then it might be time to put the project away.)

I’ve met so many great people and had so much fun with my beloved friends !
At saturday I saw these really cool Waylon ( aka @actualjohnnytopside ) and Miles ( aka - I really need your tumblr dude o 3 o ) and we had a nice chat on this day ( and sunday with my beloved @its-like-instinct too ). :3
I promised to upload their picture on tumblr, but only this is too lame. //D
So, here are a few Selfies as Stan with my wife Mariya ( aka @kurodoggy ) and Bill ( aka @butlerofdeath ). On sunday I wore Phone Guy again and I found this flower crown - look how pretty I am. ( his design belongs to @dfox999 ) ;; Thankies for this awesome day !
Signed up at new gym, dude was heartbroken that I didn’t want to to do programming part of it. But like, why should I spend that kind of dough if 1)I ain’t competing and 2) I’m semi-competent and can figure stuff out on my own/find stuff on the innerwebs? The answer is: I shouldn’t spend $200+ a month for someone to make a spreadsheet for me.
What store are all those pics from? (and I totes want to see the dozen tacky shirts for stan X) Thanks
Sorry not sorry. I’ve had this sketch lying around for ages and I’m sure someone’s made this joke already before
But more seriously, it isn’t actually a thrift shop, it’s a local independent vintage clothes store (the overpriced cousin to a thrift shop) in my home town. It’s where all the local hipsters like to shop. I go there cause sometimes they have good cosplay oddities, such as the time I bought a bunch of real deer teeth for my Bill cosplay (a local wicca taxidermist runs a pop up shop every once in a while inside the store). That particular day they were overflowing with quality old man fashion. I’m gonna draw more of it later, so I’m hoarding those ref photos for now. ;) I will share one pic though (under cut). Because they like to appeal to the lumberjack hipster crowd, there’s an entire section that is nothing but matching red plaid shirts. It looks like Alex Hirsch donated his entire wardrobe. I kid you not. They are all different brand / makes of the same red plaid shirt….
yall know those dudes at conventions? you do. i know you do, because they’re at every fucking con and they’re the absolute worst. the ones who are usually in joker or deadpool cosplay, and it’s the most obvious that they’re only in it because they want an excuse to be the largest, most gaping obnoxious assholes they can possibly be, and then they want to scapegoat it as being “in character?” is there a name for this? can we dub it deadpool syndrome, bc i s2g it is always deadpools
What are your thoughts on Your Destination Is On the Left by Lauren Spieller?
it’s a really nice cover that’s been trapped in a PSD poster mockup, for some reason.
Seriously, I hate this framing convention; from scanning the synopsis I assume it’s because the main character works in an art gallery? But what a wholly needless literalization of that concept that undermines really beautiful art and custom type that already gets across an ideay of messy artistry. shot meet foot.
my idea of a date isn’t anything conventional. I hate the whole “get to know someone over dinner” charade. nah, if imma ask you out, this is how it’s gonna go.
I’ll swing by your house at 2 a.m. and you’ll be groggy as shit but you’ll be your natural self and it will be great. then I’m going to drag your sleepy ass up a trail just far enough where we can see the whole city and then adventure on our own to find the perfect place to chill and discuss the meanings of life and each other’s ambitions and dreams. then sit in silence with a blanket around each other while we watch the sunrise and the breath that escapes our warm lips.
then down the hill we go back to my place but not for anything freaky, no I just dragged your shit out of bed at 2 am, no we are taking a well needed nap. and you can lay on my chest and listen to my heartbeat while I play with your hair listening to soft music until we both pass out.
then around midday we wake up together and both help each other make a bombass lunch, a team effort we can both enjoy. and then we spend the rest of the day doing something we both individually enjoy while together. I can sit there writing my story while we sit back to back and you work on your drawing.
and then around the afternoon we will take a walk in the city and explore anything that could possibly spark our interest, visiting shops, climbing rooftops, petting the dogs of the street.
then we will grab some food on the go and I’ll drive you back to your place, probably the both of us exhausted. goodnight babes.
sorry for the radio silence…i’ve kinda been in a weird place since sunday. my cockles op turned out to be a complete bust; can’t even salvage misha and jensen’s expressions because they don’t look like they’re really doing anything. :/ but it is what it is, and i’ve been lucky enough to get some great ops in the past, so i guess it’s not the end of the world. just wish it hadn’t been my last op of the weekend, but what can you do…
anyway, i know i’ve said it a million times before, but…i just love misha so so so much you guys. like, that’s literally all i’ve been able to think about the past few days. spn cons are a lot of fun in general, don’t get me wrong, but he’s by far the highlight of the weekend for me. even though i’ve been in a bit of a funk lately, i just keep thinking back to these little moments that happened, and i can’t help but want to curl up into the warmth i get in my stomach. :3 like i still don’t understand why after the cockles op he took the time to look me in the eye with his hand on my shoulder and say thank you when clearly i’m the one who should be saying that (and i did), but it’s the small things like that that end up having the biggest impact. idk if he could sense that i was flustered by the op or what, but the fact that he thought enough to say something means a lot.
(i also recommend trying to see him multiple times at one con if you can because seeing that flash of recognition in his eyes is the literal best.)
but about how the whole brushing of the hair thing happened during my misha solo op…i was just going for a simple, nice hug with misha because i hadn’t had one of those yet, but my hair got in my eyes, and chris made some sort of gesture to indicate as much. however, my arms were already around misha, so i didn’t really have time to fix it before he just went ahead and took care of the matter himself…before i know it, he’s literally pawing at my face to gently brush the hair aside (as i’m internally going !!! wtf is happening right now why are misha’s hands on my face) and then he just holds my head close to his in that position and moral of the story choose your haircuts wisely. @_@;;;
as for misha’s meet and greet…to avoid spilling a bunch of details about what was actually discussed because i have no idea what’s considered an acceptable summary anymore, i will only vaguely write about it by sharing my internal monologue, i.e., The Unabridged Neurotic Thoughts of a Fangirl Within the Immediate Proximity of Misha Collins for a Substantial Length of Time (alternatively, Things You Might Want to Prepare Yourself for Before a Misha M&G):
Getting real tired of going to anime conventions and seeing NH and SS cosplays tbh. Like good for them for having a good time but they have a big storm a comin’ when I show up in my Sakura cosplay with a cute ass Naruto with a big ass drawing of Shinachiku on a huge board. I’ve been to 9 conventions throughout my life so far, and not once had I seen a NaruSaku Cosplay. There were some narusasu cosplays here and there, but the point is that we really are a minority as a fandom irl and this chick here is bringing change to conventions as a cosplayer. My goal is to start recruiting NaruSaku cosplayers and shippers at conventions and expand ourselves just like how we come together on the internet. I feel so alone when I cosplay Sakura at conventions because my ships are so foreign to these people. Like I can’t even go to photoshoots without cringing and I keep silent when they talk about ships and THE LAST. We narusaku shippers exist, and I feel like something needs to change.
also the bernie supporters at the convention are confusing the hell outta me bc they’re screaming bernie’s name and booing anyone who supports hillary clinton but then bernie says “pls vote for hillary” and they boo him too???? like wtf maybe actually listen to the dude you’re so intensely supporting
