So y'all know, lately things been a little drab and negative. Drama here, ship wars, character bashing, people bashing.
We need a change.
And while I know I’m not a fan favorite, I want to make a positive change but I’ll need help. Me, along with some people who I told my plans before hand or read my apology letter to Jess, know I’m planning on making a fan week.
Not one that’s exclusively on Tumblr, but also twitter and if we get enough volunteers willing to help, Instagram also.
My goal is to promote community and make this a sort of thank gift to Jess and her crew, because lately, we been taking it for granted and upset as some of us can be, this fandom gotten to a point where fighting is more common than friendship.
The official date of the Fanweek isn’t set but there’s a deadline of volunteers helping out for it.
I’m setting the deadline for people who can volunteer for it a week from today, December 3rd. And I’m hoping the week to be between 5 days or 7 days.
We’ll give at least 2 week notice so fans can prepare and work on the prompts provided for fanweek ahead of time, not to feel rushed. We’ll have a specialized blog/twitter to reblog and retweet every content provided for the week, and don’t feel limited on what you can do– art, writing, music, video making, theories, etc? GO FOR IT. We want to celebrate us as a fans for a person who given us series and characters we love.
We aren’t perfect but we can try to make this fandom a happier place!
If you’re volunteering, please state why you’re interested and your skill set or experience with events! Don’t be shy.
P.s. if you volunteer and don’t get a chance to directly help out directly, it’s alright! There’s always next time and we need help with people promoting the event! You can still help by spreading the world. And giving suggestions won’t hurt once we set up the blog on tumblr.
This fandom is getting out of hand, guys. The amount of PSAs she’s done just won’t get into some of your heads. These are REAL people with REAL lives out of this fantasy world they created for their jobs. I’ve been a fan of hers since her early days in YouTube. Never have I seen such toxicity in a fandom other than Undertale and to be quite honest, it’s not far from that fandom as well. That’s how sad this is getting. Every single one of these people work their asses off to get videos up for you every day of every week. Do not take that for granted.
Jess is an amazing story-teller. Their company is full of such talented people. The VAs they hired are not just employees, they’re their friends. This fandom has driven some of those friends away and it’s just sickening. Let them have their fun and don’t cross the line. They are real people, not fictional characters. Aphmau is a fictional character, you can ship her with other characters. Jess is a real person. She’s married with two kids. Get that in your heads. Please. Before this fandom falls apart too.
I have gone too long Without the touch of Your skin, your face, Your lips of dusk and fire Like a patient sculptor Of time, I ply my Crafted words to your Lovely modeled reveal Where I learn the lessons Of your crescent torso Your face of longing The crescendo of your thighs As my breath slowly rises To the warmth of Your calm desire – I know It’s been far too long This absence from your Home where the splendor of Your radiance resides It is your heart and mind Your precious character that I long for within all the Softly flowing beauty That is yours, Just as you are - Here now with me.
So I have a big convention coming up and I want to cosplay as MCD Katelyn with her Jury of 9 armor, but I’m looking for more ideas on how to make said armor myself. That being said, does anyone have any ideas?
last fittings before i depart to Poznań for Pyrkon Fantasy Festival C: to sum it up - it’s been a long and a very troublesome process of making this costume, there are things i still don’t like and would change (but for now i’m like 100% done with it), but overall i guess it looks quite presentable. i hope photographers will do their “magic” and the final photos (after retouching and stuff) will look astonishing.
*there’s no belt because i’ve got it already dismantled for packing, and ofc i’d not have been able to take a photo with the gloves on ;p*
now i have to find a new project to work on, i like to keep my hands constantly busy ;p
haven’t posted any cosplay progress shots for quite a time, mostly due to the busy time at uni. but i manage to reconcile my uni assignments with work on the costume c:
chest plate and greaves
all of it is only eva foam (and googly eyes for rivets ;p), i’m gonna stiffen it a bit on the back with 4-5 layers of wood glue and newspapers’ paper, then paint it with black and silver spray paints, and add details and shadows with acrylic paints at the end. to secure them to my costume, i’ll use velcro.
