Mitch and I found a poor little brown bat that was injured due to the storm. As zubats, it’s our duty to protect our kin.

The bat was safely moved off the path and into some bushes where he could eat some bugs, warm up, and hopefully get back to flying soon!

I am…the Three Day Robot. On Friday I received a silver zentai suit for my Malfuction (SPG-Me and My Baby coverart) cosplay. With roughly 12 french gray prismacolor markers in hand, I attempted to draw and detail this suit into a matching robot suit. (Thank you for making the design fairly simple, Bunny ^-^)

Friday- Left hand complete.
Saturday- Right hand, arms complete.
Sunday-Chest designs, simple back design, knees, additional shadowing.

The only thing left that needs detailed is a thick black line where the arm meets the body, but that would take maybe 30 minutes to do. Additionally, I will be sewing a black lace choker that will hopefully hide the seam of the suit. This lace choker will be adorned with a small, golden honey bee pin that I have had for years.

I did not spend a lot of time on the back plate because my long blue wig should cover this pretty well. Additionally, the fiber optics in the wig should be distracting enough that anyone looking for flaws will be dazzled, therefore taking -1 to all search, attack, and spot rolls. The wig and lace is back at my house, which I will be getting over spring break because I have no social life.  Makeup is all Mehron AQ Paradise. The picture with the makeup was my first draft, and after hours of drawing metal accents on this zentai suit, I can assure you that the makeup design should improve substantially.

This design is based off of the original artwork of Bunny Bennet, with additional inspiration from Nova-FoV. The idea of detailing a silver zentai suit was outlined by Anniina85 with her Vriska cosplay tutorial.

I should be getting full makeup+costume photos over spring break as well. Hopefully they turn out well, right?

Steam Powered Giraffe - MKIII Album Art

After hearing “Anime” at Youmacon, I have had the mighty urge to draw some grossly animu robots. Sorry, everybody.

Edit: Noticed a flaw on the first pic. Fixed. Added steam version and lineart. Feel free to color it, just make sure you let me know! :)

Malfunction Cosplay
Yay, finally got some photos of my Malfunction cosplay! I wish you could see the fiber-optics more, but it was too bright out D:


Anyways, I think I will be changing silver makeup and add just a little more to the suit…

The new Rainbow Dash wig! 

This is a Five Wits wig (20% cooler double rainbow) and is wonderful! The colors are so vibrant and the wig has no thin spots! Fantastic quality :3 I can’t bring myself to style it like the old wig, but I think the side-swept bangs look just fine. :)

This is just the top half of my Wonderbolt Academy cosplay! I will take full photos another day, I promise :)

Ohayocon 2012-Ohayocon 2013 (A Year in Review)

It has been roughly one year since I have joined the cosplay community. Thanks to my roommate last year, I was introduced to Ohayocon. I had already constructed my portal gun at this time, and quickly made my Little Sister and Nyan Cat cosplay. My first cosplays….*sigh*

Continuing on, I began to acquire parts for my future Twilight Sparkle cosplay. Soon after it was finished, the pictures hit reddit and tumblr. After that, I realized that I may have had a talent in costume crafting. After my debut at Colossalcon, I was encouraged to continue my hobby. Chrysalis soon came along, and I updated my Chell cosplay. The Gala Twilight dress was built, but never debuted.

Caterpie was made based around a failed Chrysalis wig, and received an award for a pokemon skit I participated in at Matsuricon. The judges were slightly upset because I had been chosen for the Judge’s Award, but since I was in a skit I was ineligible to receive it. Still, I took it as a compliment. ^-^

Halloween led to the construction of the Joker costume, and I began to create the Celestia/Molestia cosplay. At Ohayocon 2013 I debuted the Gala Twilight and Molestia, which were great hits. Celestia is yet to be completed, but is almost done.

Overall, I have made a lot of cosplay friends and learned a lot. My skills have improved, but I have much more to learn. I have a few cosplays already planned out for this year, and I hope you all continue to encourage me and support me! Honestly, it was the feedback from the community that encouraged me to continue making costumes. Thank you all for a great year, and I hope for many more to come!

Russian robot reference
This unnamed bot sports a black, calf-length dress with sleeves that come down just beyond her elbows. In cosplay I wear gold gloves because I’ve been to lazy to detail the robot details onto them :< Not pictured are the plain, black knee-high boots that this bot wears as well.

I hope this general reference of my Russian bot will suffice!
