Matt appreciation month is (if you don’t know already) when we EddsWorld fans appreciate Matt and what he’s doing for the EddsWorld community.

From Coraline to Kubo : A Magical Laika Experience - Universal Studios Hollywood (extremely image heavy)
During the month of August 2016, Universal Studios Hollywood hosted a Laika exhibit wherein characters, sets and props from all four of Laika’s movies to date were displayed. My husband and I had activated our passes on the LAST day of the exhibit. Little did we know, we had to make reservations to attend! It took some convincing, but the staff let us into this AWESOME display!
The first room was, of course, Coraline. This area featured real animation puppets, that I believe had been used on screen; and a massive Pink Palace Apartments display. (please excuse the phone quality photos)
Next was Paranorman! The displays beyond Coraline used display maquettes as opposed to actual animation puppets. However, the quality was still screen worthy. All of the props and sets still breathtakingly detailed.
The victorian-inspired details of The Boxtrolls displays were gorgeous, even in all their lopsided quirkiness.
Before diving into the Kubo displays, we took a moment to appreciate exactly HOW much work is put into these films. This is just a TINY fraction, of how many face plates these characters use. Can you count all of these?
And lastly, the fantastic Kubo displays.
This room (pictured below) was massive. It stretched back so deep, and every tiny item was crafted with full real-life detail.
The leaf boat was HUGE. It towered above the display walls (and they weren’t short).
But what was the real monster here? The skeleton! There was a little scale replica of him. (I swear… 1/100 scale? lol!)
But no… They had a full sized replica. I don’t feel the photos really bring it across, but he was HUGE. The last photo was taken underneath him, with my arms fully stretched upward over my head, holding the phone for the photo.
This event was so quietly advertised - and not simple to get into either! I feel it was a shame it was so temporary, and I wish so many more people had access to see these amazing puppets and sets. I truly treasured this experience, and look forward to what Laika has in store for the future.
Requested: Anon ‘Hi! Could you do an imagine where you and Simon like each other, but refuse to admit it, and you’re always getting teased by the boys! Thank you!’
A/N: May not be exactly what was requested, I kind of added my own twist to it. I think it is one of my best pieces so far, but that’s my opinion haha. I hope you like it and enjoy x
“Take a picture it’ll last longer.” Ethan snickered at Simon, who was watching you dance across the crowded room.
“Shut up.” Simon told him, rolling his eyes.
“Admit it.” Ethan pestered, nudging him.
“Admit what?” Simon asked, looking confused.
“That you love her!” Ethan exclaimed, giggling.
“I do not love her!” Simon protested, shaking his head.
“Who doesn’t Simon love?” JJ interrupted, standing next to Simon.
“Y/N.” Ethan replied, smirking making JJ laugh loudly.
“Oh Simon, you silly boy.” JJ giggled, shaking his head.
“What?” Simon questioned, knotting his eyebrows together.
“You can protest all you want, but everyone knows damn well that you both love each other.” JJ told him with Ethan nodding in agreement.
“I’m going to refill my cup.” Simon said, annoyed moving past the dancing people, in JJ’s lounge and into the empty kitchen.
Simon sighed, sipping his alcoholic beverage. Thinking, thinking about you. That’s all was on his mind lately, ever since one of the boys mentioned that he and you should just be together, joking of course a few weeks back. He thought what it would be like if he and you where in a relationship. It brought a smile to him, the thought of your lips against his, his hands running through your silky hair, his giant hands clasping your smaller ones. Late night talks, laying in bed listening to each others heart beats- it seems so beautiful, yet dangerous at the same time. What if it ruins your great friendship? Destroying it in one simple move. But, is it worth the risk?
“Simon! There you are!” You exclaimed, giving him a quick hug and pulling back.
“H-hey Y/N.” He greeted, bring him back to reality.
“So, what are you doing all alone in here?” You asked, pouring yourself another drink in your cup and turning to face him.
“Just thinking whether or not to take a risk, or just leave it.” Simon sighed, looking down.
“Well, how much of a risk is it?” You questioned, putting your drink on the side.
“On a scale of 1 to 100, I’d say 99.9.” He answered, making you question yourself what kind of risk he might take.
“Wow, that much of a risk, eh?” You replied, looking at him.
“Well, I could just possibly destroy the best thing that has ever happened to me.” He told you, looking lost and anxious.
“It depends, are you willing to destroy it, or live your life not knowing what could’ve happened if you did it.” You said, turning your head to the side to look at his face.
“I’ll do it.” He blurted out, after a few seconds of silence.
“Do it then.” You answered, smiling.
Suddenly, he grabbed and kissed you. Your eyes went wide in shock, then you completely melted into the kiss and wrapped your arms around his neck.
After a few seconds, you both pulled back panting and smiling at each other.
It’s midnight. This is the first second I’ve had to sit down and write about Nashville. I was knee deep in SDCC planning with my Just About Write ladies today. It’s gonna be lit folks! We can’t wait to cover it for you.
So… I decided to go to HVFF Nashville for one reason and one reason only. M*lissa B*noist was attending and my daughter could meet Supergirl. The obsession runs deep my friends. When M*lissa canceled Lauren was absolutely devastated and I was in a bit of a panic. Primarily because I didn’t know what else she would enjoy at HVFF. She’s not allowed to watch Arrow. She’s only seen a few clips, but Lauren loves Felicity Smoak. Hand to God this is how she described the show to a friend.
Friend: What’s Arrow?
(The friend overhead my husband and I discussing my blog)
Lauren: It’s about Felicity Smoak. She is super smart and loves computers like I do. She fights crime.
Friend: Okaaaay. But… who is Arrow?
Lauren: (completely blasé) Oh. He’s just Felicity’s boyfriend.
I mean…. she’s not entirely wrong. She also possibly summed up 95% of the fandom’s view of the show, so I give her points for that. But… Emily Bett Rickards wasn’t going to be there. So, I was unsure of her level of excitement over Stephen.
Here’s my Vintage Allan/Obitsu Normal Male hybrid with Hobby Base 1/100 scale Mechanical hands. I’ve always wanted articulated doll hands but I knew the joints would look too inhuman to work for anything except a robot so I’ve been hoping Gundam scale hands would work for my hybrid.
Asides from having to glue the hands onto the Obitsu wrist connectors to extend the length of the palms I’m really surprised how well these hands scale with him despite being intended for an entirely different scale.
The joints are ridiculously small so when you’re posing them you got to be gentle with posing them cuz I’m not gonna let my hours of assembling them go to waste lol. I’m pretty surprised how well he can grip things that aren’t too heavy cuz I expected the scale to just… sort of being too loose for any actual gripping.
I’m still getting used to his new hands but I can say I’m super happy my dream cyborg custom has come together so well.
