The Eleventh Hour so far has my favorite storytelling from Griffin! So here’s a pseudo-movie poster ehuehueue

Had to do another illustration for our Fantasy Illust class and our prof gave me the go signal to draw TAZ again as long as I found good face refs for them. B^) I based Magnus, Taako and Merle on John Spainhour, Paul Boche, and Brian Cox respectively!

I was lucky enough to attend the Pacific Rim: Uprising NYCC panel at Madison Square Garden (and sat in the first row ayyy~~) and took a bunch of notes lol. The panel included the director Steven S. DeKnight, and a few members of the main cast including John Boyega, Cailee Spaeny, Scott Eastwood, and Burn Gorman. Here’s my recap:

General Worldbuilding Tidbits

  • Pacific Rim: Uprising is set 10 years in the future after the last film. DeKnight said that they wanted to show a “new generation of Jaeger pilots who have known nothing but chaos.”
  • Previous characters slated to return, as seen by the trailer, include Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), Dr. Hermann Gottlieb (Burn Gorman), and Dr. Newt Geiszler (Charlie Day).
  • The new main “trio” seems to consists of the main lead, Jake Pentecost, and the late son of Stacker Pentecost (John Boyega), Jake’s best friend and Jaeger pilot Nate Lambert (Scott Eastwood), and tech-savvy Amara Namani (Cailee Spaeny). 
  • 10 years later, the Pan-Pacific Defense Corps (PPDC) has come together to work as an international fighting force, with all of humanity working together - i.e. Jaegers are no longer coded by specific country, like the Russian Jaegers, Australian Jaegers, etc. 
  • This also allowed the opportunity to build Jaegers from the ground up, since they were all previously destroyed in the first film. It was jokingly claimed, “we cancelled the apocalypse and then un-cancelled it to make this movie.”
  • DeKnight discussed how  Del Toro originally set the table with Pacific Rim as a “fantastic visual feast,” so the goal with the sequel was to honor the original, but also expand the universe at the same time. 
  • John Boyega claimed that they weren’t trying to “rewrite what Guillermo Del Toro did, but rather to build upon and expand this universe, and where the humans are at now.”
  • Boyega also talked about how he came onto work behind-the-scenes creatively on the film as a producer. He described Pacific Rim as one of the only franchises he’s come across where the fans are hopeful and “sacred science fiction ground." 
  • Going in, Boyega felt like he had the same creative passion as DeKnight. When they met in LA for the first time, they went over the specific Jaegers and basically what Boyega wanted to see after Pacific Rim. He claimed that "I believe this is everything you want Pacific Rim to be." 
  • One of the goals of Pacific Rim: Uprising is to explain exactly what happened 10 years after the first film, but not necessarily be a complete detachment to the origin story. It was highlighted that there are a lot of young teenage characters in the cast and hopefully that’ll be something that new viewers can relate to. 
  • According to DeKnight, one of the overarching themes of Pacific Rim is: "It doesn’t matter who your parents are, the color of your skin, your religion, or sexual orientation, you can make a difference and be a hero. It’s the human inside the Jaegers that makes you super." 
  • Pacific Rim: Uprising was filmed both in Australia and China. The cast pretty much agreed that as a director, DeKnight runs a "relaxed” and “creative” set - it was a tough schedule, but the actors all felt that they could still have creative input.

New Jaegers

  • DeKnight called them all “badass,” with Gipysy Avenger leading the charge.
  1. Gipsy Avenger: Has a lot of upgrades, including a Gravity Sling which allows the Jaeger to reach out and grab buildings, cars, etc. and hurl them directly at the Kaiju.
  2. Bracer Phoenix: This is the brute force Jaeger. One of its special abilities, above many, is the fact that it’s a three-pilot machine. Therefore, the third pilot can drop into the chamber and operate a pair of massive guns called the Vortex Cannon.
  3. Saber Athena: This is the most advanced Jaeger in the fleet that uses Plasma swords. Also described as a “little experimental,”  and “incredibly swift.”
  4. Titan Redeemer: Has a special weapon called the “ball of death,” which is attached to the end of his arm. According to DeKnight, this was “pretty damn cool." 
  5. Guardian Bravo: Is another brute force Jaeger that has a special weapon called the "graphine arc whip." 
  6. Scrapper: Described as a "little guy,” that’s been slapped together. Since in the future, there are a lot of people pilfering and stealing PPCD technology to make their own Jaegers. 
  • During the Q&A, an audience member asked if all the new Jeagers run on analog. DeKnight claimed one Jaeger is built on sticks (lmao), but the general idea is that no EM-powered Kaijus will be able to take down the Jaegers in this film.

Jake Pentecost (John Boyega)

  • Boyega stated that he “loved the first movie and one of the reasons was Idris Elba.” So, he understood the big shoes that he had to fill. Boyega claimed he understood this responsibility, but  "we [the cast] all worked as a unit, and Jake Pentecost doesn’t exist without the other characters. This is also a great ensemble piece.“
  • When the moderator asked if Jake is trying to live up to Sacker’s legacy, Boyega jokingly claimed: "Hell no!” He went to explain that “the greatest heroes don’t accept legendary status. It takes a tussle and a turn and for Jake’s position. Where we find Jake in the beginning of the film is in very different circumstances from his Dad.”
  • Boyega described Jake as a “stealer, a hustler, and lives in half a mansion. He’s really a guy that doesn’t want to live up to the Pentecost name.”
  • Jake is bought back into the PPCD in a very unique way through his connection to Cailee Spaeny’s character Amara. So, Jake is bought into this adventure and decides that he’s gotta “step up,” after realizing that the “Pentecost name still means something to people." 
  • During the Q&A, an audience member asked Boyega what’s the most rewarding part of being a sci-fi icon. He claimed that he doesn’t feel like one, but working on both Pacific: Rim Uprising has been exciting, since it’s allowed him to jump into various elements of sci-fi that he loved growing up.

Nate Lambert (Scott Eastwood)

  • Eastwood described him as a Jaeger pilot who’s one of the best out there. Yet, he’s still "the tip of the spear,” and really nothing without his best friend Jake.
  • Jake and Nate still have issues in this movie to work out from the past, so Eastwood felt that coming back around and dealing with a lost time with these characters was something cool to explore as an actor. 
  • Eastwood also emphasized that while yes, there is plenty of action in the film, it “has a great story first and foremost.”

Amara Namani (Cailee Spaeny)

  • This was Spaeny’s first film that she was ever cast for. So, she was definitely intimidated and a bit terrified, but knew that fans were so supportive of the first film. 
  • Spaeny didn’t actually watch Pacific Rim until she got the audition for the sequel, and really took it upon herself to dive into the universe in order to understand and respect the original film.  
  • In terms of Spaeny’s film experience, there was also diving into tons of stunts and action and lots of skills that she to catch onto , since she was participating in a whole world that’s already been created. 
  • But Spaeny felt that both DeKnight and the cast were very supportive and helpful, whenever she had questions, so it was really easy for her to dive into Cailee’s character. She also bonded with DeKnight since this was the first feature-length, theatrical film that he ever directed. 
  • Spaeny described Amara as very “independent,” and super “badass.” She’s also a tech-savvy person. 
  • For Amara’s backstory, her entire family was killed in the first wave of Kaiju attacks. So, Amara really “takes it upon herself to dive into Jaeger tech and make sure that when Kaiju do come back, she’ll be ready to fight and protect herself." 
  • While Amara’s past is very different from Jake’s, Spaeny claimed that both of them still see a lot of things in similar ways.  

Dr. Hermann Gottlieb (Burn Gorman)

  • Gorman said he was very excited to be back in the sequel, which felt like "being back in the playground.” He also joked, "I’ve been lucky enough with this face that God gave me to play a few jerks on screen,” when an audience member briefly highlighted his past roles on Torchwood, Revenge, Game of Thrones, and The Dark Knight Rises. 
  • Gottlieb still has problems with personal hygiene. Gorman claimed, “let’s just say that he hasn’t changed his socks since the last film." 
  • In comparison to Charlie Day’s character (Dr. Newt Geiszler) who has moved onto the private sector, Gottlieb chose to stay behind with the PPCD and arguably their most important scientist at the highest level at this point. So, Gorman joked that Gottlieb now, in effect, has a "really great budget,” to work with now. 
  • However, DeKnight makes it clear that where we find Gottlieb is: “as a man still very much affected in what happened in the previous film in terms of his drift and communication with the Kaiju.

There was a brief Q&A and the last question really stuck out to me, where an audience member asked each cast member to sum up their Pacific: Rim Uprising experience in one word:

  • John Boyega: Unity
  • Cailee Spaeny: Life-Changing
  • Scott Eastwood: International
  • Steve S. DeKnight: Mind-blowing

In all honesty, I just want to write Eren as a raging feminist who likes to remind persons of questionable morality that he’s over two hundred pounds and has a doctorate in Women’s Studies. Dr. Jaeger who talks on news shows and absolutely slays on topics such as transgender rights, equal pay, and rape. Eren Jaeger who is comfortable in his bisexuality, but is painfully smitten with his boyfriend of three years. Eren Jaeger who has a sister who could kick anyone’s ass, including his own, and fiercely tears up at her wedding reception. Eren Jaeger who pays ahead a few cups of coffee, who pays his taxes on time despite being very disgruntled about it, who will spot you a few dollars in the grocery, who will walk you to your car in the middle of the night.

Eren Jaeger who’s interning with Hange Zoe, his feminist, nonbinary idol. Who volunteers on weekends at the animal shelter and cries whenever a kitten is adopted. Who can play any sport and fail spectacularly at them with the biggest, stupidest grin on his face. Who can bench press his boyfriend and recite entire paragraphs from a book he read when he was eleven.

Intelligent, fiercely loyal, very bara, feminist Eren Jaeger.

moonlotion  asked:

Hello!! I have a question about your Cronus cosplay How did you attach your horns? I've been having so much trouble with my own ヽ(;▽;)ノ

Cry no more Kat, for I have the solution to your problem:

Behold! My lazy tutorial on how to attach troll horns!

So here we have our wig and our horns. Now, how to attach them? (Note: My horns are made of lightweight clay, so they weigh next to nothing. If you make your horns out of something heavier, this method might not work!)

Here is our secret weapon: paper binders! They’re basically these small little metal thingies that open up when bent. You can get these pretty much anywhere from hardware stores to crafts stores and they cost just a couple of euros.

You need about 4-5 per horn, depending on how many you can fit (remember to make sure each one has enough space to open). Just hot glue them on like I’ve done below:

Next step is to get a piece of thin cardboard (Note: it needs to be thick enough not to rip) and make holes for the paper binders’ “legs”. We’re going to use the cardboard a bit later, so don’t put it on the horn yet!

Now it’s time to attach the horns! Put the wig on a wig head and see where the horn looks good (Note: This works the best if the bottoms of your horns are modified to fit with your head’s curves. This prevents the horns from sticking out unnaturally).

When you’ve found the perfect spot, just stick it in! You need to push the paper binders’ legs through the wig cap like this:

Now just put the cardboard piece inside the wig and bend the paper binders:

Lastly put on the wig and see what it looks like. You might need to take the horns off a few times and try again, but I’m sure you’ll get it right eventually! In the end it should look something like this:

And there you go! If you have more questions or something was left unclear, don’t hesitate to ask! Hopefully this was useful :>

feelmyroarrrr  asked:

Oooh Bucky and 2 please

This was fun! Thanks for the ask ;) @feelmyroarrrr


It was just a simple assess and report mission. You and Bucky Barnes sat outside a cafe in the city, drinks in front of you (non-alcoholic), your coms online with Steve and Nat watching from the outskirts in case any trouble erupted. 

“You alright, doll?”

Crap. Bucky had caught you googling at him from across the small table.

You gave him a smile. “Sure. Just keeping an eye out, that’s all,” you replied.

A bright grin grew across his face. “An eye out on what, exactly?” Man, he was loving this. 

With an eye roll, you chose to ignore his comment and took a much needed prolonged swig of your drink. Heat rose to your cheeks as you felt his eyes on you now, his tongue flicking out across his bottom lip as you put the glass back on the table. 

You decided to test the waters. “What are you keeping an eye out on?” you pressed, your voice a little quieter with the ever growing tension between the pair of you. 

“Would you two please just go make out in a corner already and come back when you’re ready to concentrate?” Nat’s voice spoke through your earpieces. “Me and Rogers can keep up surveillance while you’re gone,” you could practically hear the smug grin as she spoke. 

Embarrassment filled you at your best friends words and right in that moment, you just wanted the ground to open and swallow you whole. Or some bad guy to interrupt. Either way, anything would’ve been better than this torment. 

“Ignore her, she doesn’t know what she’s going on about,” you managed to speak, giving Bucky an awkward smile in reassurance. 

He raised an eyebrow. “You sure?”

You frowned, confused.

“Well, I’m just saying, I for one would love to play out her plan with you, doll,” he reiterated, a drop dead gorgeous smile across his face. 

You couldn’t believe what you were hearing. Bucky wanted you. The super soldier you’d be swooning over since you’d met him actually wanted you. 

“But-”

“-But what?” you felt your heart about to sink from whatever rejection he was bound to give you. 

“But, I’d want to do more than just make out with you in some random street. I want to take you out for dinner, if you’ll have me, that is?” 

“Bucky Barnes, I’d have you forever,” you smiled. “But dinner first sounds great.”

tfw when u have stuff to do for your second course, a master dissertation to write, but all you wanna do is draw ryan gosling holding a bright yellow balloon and being slightly disgusted with it

Brown eyes are so under appreciated, though. Seriously, they are so incredibly beautiful and dreamy and honestly, who gives a damn that they’re so common? Thank God they are because they’re freaking gorgeous. 

Home Work for tonight, kiddos! Describe a pair of brown eyes ( BONUS DIFFICULTY: avoid food terminology). 

anonymous asked:

Any sombra (my queen) Headcanons for a royal reader like would she be how she was in her animated short all like "haha I need a higher class 'friend'" but secretly she's like "...God they are super beautiful and *swoon*"

Cute!  I’m sorry I know I said friday but it was my birthday that week so we were celebrating and I didn’t have time until today


Sombra:

-Of course this “Friendship” starts with an almost assassination, but because (royal title)(y/n) is much more attractive in person she almost let’s them get away

-(y/n) becomes her best friend both resources(for info not on the internet) and actual friendship wise

-Swoons for them behind their back

-The only person Sombra frequently breaches security to see

-When they started to spend time together (although at first on (y/n)’s side it was more against their will) Sombra acts like they’re just bros or something, but she secretly wants them to be more

-Not only are they amazing, but imagine the benefits of having (y/n) as her s/o
