These are from a Hunger Games themed photo shoot me and my friends did a while ago. At some point in the story, Unwinona’s character went off the deep end and decided she was going to win the games, but not before she carved the number of her district into her arm. 

I achieved this effect with something called 3rd Degree which is a silicone based product that comes in two parts. Painted with alcohol colors and stage blood. I also helped with the blood and dirt smearing.

Meet Lola Unwinona!

Lola has been an actress since the age of twelve and a nerd since the age of birth. Trained as an improv comedian, her troupe was voted Best Improv Group by SL Weekly. She graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 2006 and performed as part of the third year company until 2007. Lola has performed for several years with the Garage Theatre Company (LB Post’s Best Cutting Edge Theatre in 2013) in Long Beach, California. She has also been seen awkwardly gracing the stage at Mortified Live in both Los Angeles and Portland, a show described by Newsweek as a “cultural phenomenon” and featured on This American Life, The Today Show, and The Onion AV Club. Yes, she knows that she kinda looks like Winona Ryder. Lola plays Lilly, the roommate of Kit Quinn’s character, in the upcoming Sweethearts of the Galaxy!

Oh, and this one time, two of the guys from Kids in the Hall told her she was funny. So that’s pretty great.


So this is a thing that happened today. It all started when my friend posted this article on his Facebook: 


It’s about one of the ladies of GoT deciding she didn’t want to do nude scenes any more. I say good on her, as did my friend. This one person however had a different opinion and was getting a little intense about it. I, being a little shit and wanting to lighten the mood, corrected her spelling. She did not like that and took a few passive aggressive shots at me. Which I deserved but did not appreciate, so I then went to defend myself. The Friendwife also stepped in. This is what took place.

I don’t know if anything was really achieved or if I presented my case properly. All I can say is this went down today and I will never stop calling out the patriarchy.


This is the interview dress I made for my wonderful friend Unwinona. I designed this based on the description in the book and making it was truly a labor of love. So many people helped with this dress, which is good because it was quite tedious. Each diamond was hand sewn to the base dress. Every diamond is three layers of fabric surged together and we cut fifty diamonds out of each kind of fabric. Someone else can do the math on that.

Doing new stuff

Recently I got together with my friends and we decided to kick some ass and make our own vlog for nerd ladies. We filmed our first episode last night and I’m crazy excited. I’m excited to make stuff with my friends and I’m excited to embark on this adventure with them.

We’re called The NerdStreet Hoodlums if you want to check us out. We’re on all the social media and our first episode will premiere next week!

Hawkeye Avenger Puppet!!

You read correct followers, what you see here is a Hawkeye puppet I made for unwinona's birthday present. She is not only an awesome friend but is an awesome archer and deserved an awesome puppet to match her awesomeness. That was a lot of awesome to go into one puppet but I think I matched it pretty well.  I love making puppets for my friends.  One of these days I’ll make an entire Avenger puppet team. Enjoy

unwinona  asked:

I've just invented the alternate universe where you're a Stark and I cruise on down from the south with my Baratheon entourage to visit every summer when it gets too hot to be at Storm's End.

Come on over! It’s nice and cool over here in Winterfell!

[Boston is totally Winterfell. I’m going to say LA is either King’s Landing or Casterly Rock. The South, for obvious reasons is Storm’s End. And Canada of course is the Land Beyond the Wall].
