immortal series

Beloved animated series/immortal TV overlord The Simpsons has staged a lot of crazy contests over the years: from soliciting viewers to do the writers’ work for them to a “Who Shot Mr. Burns?” contestin which no one guessed the killer, so Fox just sent the prize money to some random woman who solved absolutely nothing.

The most epic Simpsons giveaway, though, came in the ‘90s, when you could win a life-size replica of the family’s house – presumably for those die-hard fans who wanted to live out a deranged fantasy in which they’ve murdered the Simpsons and moved into their vacant home.

The interior of the house had been decked out in a loving re-creation of the titular family’s home – including the iconic couch, a fridge stuffed with Duff beer, the eerie feeling that you’re being watched by millions of unseen people, etc. – all of that attention to detail had to go, because “furnishings do not convey.” After all, what Simpsons fan would want to keep Simpsons stuff in their Simpsons house?

6 Amazing Prizes That Sucked When They Read The Fine Print


Chlorophyll Prints by Binh Danh: An Interview

In the work of Binh Danh, art is space for the unnamed to be seen. When war is the theme every detail counts. How does one person tackle this massive issue, where death and the value of lives intersect? A one-man job becomes a job about other men. And so for his series “Immortality: The Remnants of the Vietnam and American War” he made chlorophyll prints to express the indelible mark of war on various lands. Soldiers and laymen whose faces and records have been archived are given another chance to be remembered.



The Perergrine wing base here was my contribution to this awesome, Tamara Pierce “Immortals” cosplay of the Stormwing Queen Barzha Razorwing - coverts, tail & body feathers are all handmade by the costumer, a buddy of mine - askthecosplayer here on tumblr (wildmage007 on the dA). I must mention that the body feathers are all felt, cut & glued on by hand. D: MARVEL AT THIS.

This costume won “Best Original Design” at the Sakuracon 2013 Masquerade/Cosplay Contest. CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO

After a horrible accident claims the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom can see people’s auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone’s entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact to suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school — but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste.

Damen is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He’s the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head - wieling a magis so intense, it’s as though he can peer straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she’s left with more questions than answers. And she has no idea just who he really is - or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is that she’s falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.
