Harry Hart's eyepatch

Eggsy would completely be the person who gives Harry a set of handmade or specially commissioned novelty eye patches when he finds out that he lost the eye.

He would use the sewing skills he learned from first stitching himself up after a bad brawl then later from kingsman’s training to craft eyepatches for Harry on he plane rides from mission to mission. The first set featured things like a pugs head and a painstakingly embroidered butterfly and a bunch of googly eyes superglued in a smiley face.

Their ridiculous and personal options that make Harry smile and he puts in the effort to wear the unprofessional ones at home. Soon it becomes a tradition that the new Arthur gets another patch every time that Eggsy comes back from a long mission.

The collection ends up having everything from one with a martini glass to a fabric one patterned with old fashioned newspaper clippings. The patch with a little gold crown embossed on leather with a high tech proximity sensor to tell him if his depth perception was off from Merlins experimantal technology lab was naturally one of Harry’s favorites.

He gets tacky christmas and halloween and easter themed patches, he gets one with little swords and helmets and one with the highly inappropriate saying “gentleman in the streets demon in the sheets”.

On the rare occasions that Eggsy leaves on a mission angry at him Harry receives a patch with cuss words or insults or memorably a very well done stitched middle finger as the only decoration. When a mission goes particularly wrong or Eggsy comes a little too close to dying he gets patches with words of love from six different languages or quotes from favorite movies that remind them both just how lucky they are to have eachother.

He gets a patch specially designed by Daisy herself that features what looks like nothing but a tangled mess of threads, but there in the center is a little ring of hearts separating one white and yellow flower from the rest of the design. That one makes his good eye well up and Harry weeps unashamedly at the sentiment behind it.

One day the patch is made of silk and looks very much like the tie he had made to go with Eggsy’s first kingsman suit, and the inside of the patch is embroidered with the words “manners maketh man” and a beautiful golden ring is held below the quote by little loops of thread.

He wears the patch on their wedding day.

“Thank You Misha” Appreciation Book

With the thought of the @supernaturalartbook​ and @thedestielartbook​ I decided to do something I’ve been toying with the idea of for a long time.

 will be a fan-made book consisting of user-submitted stories of how Misha Collins has touched the lives of the submitters and made a lasting impression on them.

This is an art project which I will keep going for as long as possible to collect as MANY inspirational stories from people about Misha Collins and how he has changed their lives and made the world a better place for them

Misha Collins is truly an angel who has done so much for all of us and it’s about time that we give a little back. At this point in time, this will be a one off printed book on my dime - I plan on inserting all the stories in a 200-300 full color book (with some submitted Misha Collins artwork). The book will be a hardcover coffee table style book with a glossy dust jacket, gold leaf trim & embossed leather cover under the dust jacket. It will include a fairly long introduction chapter or two written by yours truly. The user submitted stories will immediately follow the introduction chapter. I will try to include up to two stories per page and am looking for 400-600 user submitted stories preferably of 400-1000 words each (but more or less is fine). The reason for the word limitation is that I need to be able to more or less fit two stories on some of the pages due to my page limit. Initially, I will only be printing one copy of the book out of my pocket to hand deliver to Misha during VegasCon 2018 or PhxCon 2018 depending on how long the creation of this takes. Afterwards, I will be setting up an indiegogo campaign to sell copies of the book for people interested in owning a copy of their own. There will be two options available (as of now) the version with the original stats (leather bound, dustjacket, gold trim etc), and a plain hardcover version.

This is just something I want to do for Misha with help from all of you beautiful people and any money made off of sales will go to RandomActs because it’s an organization I am VERY passionate about. Now that we got that out of the way, if you’re interested in contributing your story, please submit it through the submit page and be sure to adhere to the following guidelines.

  • Please check your spelling and grammar - I will go over it myself but it would be helpful if it already arrives checked and ready.
  • Please do not use any profanity or offensive language unless absolutely necessary. This is for Misha and the Collins family and I hope we can keep it clean and beautiful for him and his family to enjoy.
  • Please try to keep your story under over 300 but under 1000 words - THIS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT but more of a loose guideline so I can fit everything together well.
  • If you would like to submit artwork of Misha Collins to the book - I simply ask for your permission to print it in the book I give to him- I also ask that it be high quality and at least 300 dpi so it prints correctly & crisply on a large coffee table book. Watermark on the image is welcome as well as your name and a link back - will include that in the book for any artists that contribute their work.
  • I plan on including a name & location below each story submitted so please include your name & city/state with any submission. If you would like to include a link to your social media, I will happily include one link or email address as well with each submission. If no info is submitted, your submission will appear as -Anonymous
  • Additionally, I plan on having a credits section on the back of the book - if you submit a story or artwork, the name & location (and link) will be included in the credits section of the book.
  • Lastly, I will happily include a full page for anyone that runs a charity organization or any kind of group that was founded with Misha Collins in mind for charity work, support groups etc. The page will be a full page about the charity in question with description, information, contact & photos if you want to include them. I want to do this to prove to him that he doesn’t just HELP thousands, he inspires them to do good too. Please contact me through the ask box for more information regarding this.

The book printing will be done in 4 stages/

STAGE 1: Story Collection - Story collection will consist of collecting all the user submitted stories and artwork that will be included in the book The closeout date for when user submitted content will close is currently December 21st, 2017. Dates are subject to change.

STAGE 2: Format & Editing - This is the phase where I will format the book and edit all the content to make sure it fits well together and looks good. Additionally, I will be spellchecking all of the content and arranging all the user submitted artwork & charity pages to make sure everything looks clean and streamlined. Date TBD

STAGE 3: 1st Copy Printing - This is when I will be printing the first INDIVIDUAL copy of the book to deliver to Misha. This will be a very heavy coffee table book bound in leather, with a glossy dust jacket and gold leaf trim on the pages. The book will be in full color. I currently have an estimate for about $110 for one copy of the book - the price is pretty steep because I will be buying it on its own and not in bulk. I will be paying this out of pocket. Date TBD

STAGE 4: Mass Distribution - I will set up an indiegogo campaign to mass distribute the book in a “Luxury” edition which is exactly like Misha’s copy, and a cheaper more affordable standard edition - maybe even a paperback edition. This all depends on the feedback I get from people who submit and ask questions. More info to come. Date TBD

If you have any suggestions or ideas, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

All submissions will be posted to this blog publicly unless requested otherwise-this will be for keeping track of submissions. Submissions may or may not be printed in the order they were submitted in, I haven’t decided that yet but will do a poll during stage 2 of this project.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing all of your stories of how this man has helped you.

WE LOVE YOU MISHA!

Ps if everyone could signal boost and reblog to get exposure out that would be extremely helpful! I need as many submissions as possible!

I’m almost a month behind with this upload but here is February’s craft activity; hand made journals. Start to finish. Cutting, folding and sewing pages, making covers from mixed materials (cottons, leathers, shells etc.) and tried my hand at leather embossing. Gotta say I’m pretty happy with how they all turned out!

90’s Superboy… is just so pure in the absolute dumbest, most ridiculous way possible. Like this child, with his undercut and embossed leather jackets, is just out there just being his normal, crazy self. He just is. There is no motivations, no ulterior motives, he’s a blank slate and yet he’s got this so-lame-he’s-cool personality going on. Plus he’s such a sweetheart and even Superman is charmed by him despite the unique circumstances of his creation. I just love 90’s Superboy so much… I want to hug him and slap him at the same time.

Magical Madness 5e #26

The Codex of Conflagration
This spell book gives off a pleasant smell of a burning campfire and is bound in red leather embossed with many red opals with runes laid out in amber. When memorizing spells that deal fire damage from this book, the DC for such spells is increased by 3. in addition, with all fire spells memorized the caster increases the damage dice of those spells by 2 damage dice (a fireball cast at any slot has its damage increased by 2d6). A spell caster may also use this book as an arcane focus, allowing them to affect any evocation spell cast with the widen spell meta-magic. (doubles the area of an evocation spell)

The Folio of the Frozen
Ice crystals form on the surface of these waterproof pages as cold emanates from the book as a whole. When memorizing spells from this book that deal cold damage the DC for all saving throws increases by 3. in addition, all people affected by those spells have their speed reduced by 15ft for rounds equal to that spell level if they fail any save for half damage. any caster may use this spellbook as an arcane focus, allowing them to affect any evocation spell cast with the empowered spell meta-magic. (When you roll damage for a spell, you can reroll a number of damage dice up to your casting modifier. you must use the new rolls.)

The Lexicon of Lightning
static electricity seems to build up all around this book bound in blue scales and covered in runes made of the powder of many pyroelectric gems. when memorizing a spells that deal lightning damage from this book the DC for such spells is increased by 3. in addition, with all lightning spells cast, the caster may select a number of targets for those spells to arc to that are already not affected by that spell. the range of this arc is 5ft times the casters spellcasting modifier. if any caster uses this book as an arcane focus, any evocation spell cast may be affected as if by the quickened spell metamagic.

The Anthology of Acid
This book and its pages are created with thin sheets of metal. the outside is covered in runes of a sandy green powder and inside the writing is etched in the metal “pages”. when memorizing spells from this book that deal acid damage, the DC for all saving throws of those spells increases by 3. in addition, those who take damage from a spell involving acid damage, take additional damage equal to half of the total damage delt to them on the start of their next turn. This damage occurs only once per casting of a spell. if the caster uses this book as an arcane focus, any evocation spell cast may be affected by the heightened spell metamagic.
