Oh my god guys, I am actually doing this. I can’t believe it. Please, please, please signal boost the shit outta this. I have been homeless on the streets and couch-surfing for the past 4 years, since I was 18yrs old and my parents choose religion over their child. This is my fucking ticket to freedom, something I have been dreaming of since the first time I attempted to run away from the abuse.

I have poured every last ounce of hope I’ve got left in my reserves for this. I haven’t looked forward to something more than a month in the future in years. I never envisioned myself living past 25, but my god in this moment I hope I can live past 50. I just… fuck. I’m so excited. :3

ok, lineart getting better again, but I’ve forgotten how to color.

And my favorite of the Four Stars.

It feels like I haven’t drawn with a tablet in ages, and I’m bizarrely rusty. So I’m…warming up by drawing Tales villains, it seems.

I GET TO DO FUN THINGS IN SCHOOL HAHA I’m cherishing it while it lasts

Redid these designs after doing more research on Western 1920s fashion, etc. I liked the shorts Agria had, but since her thing is kinda hard femme I wanted to respect that.

lacecorporal asked: I just wanted to say your breakdown on Ludger is a life saver- thank you so much! :)

No problem! I’m glad people are getting something out of it.

Hey there, cosplayers!

faidflourite and I are starting our very own cosplay channel on YouTube right before the holidays! 
But we can’t do it alone! The first video we’re doing, called ‘Everyone Starts Somewhere’ (based on this post I made a while back) needs other cosplayers with their own accounts and input! We would love to get as many voices as we can, so if you’re interested, we highly encourage you to give it a shot!

What we need:

  • A video with a clear image and sound quality.
  • Pictures of your ‘then’ and ‘now’ costumes with a clear display of progress between them.
  • No special editing required! Just put together the clips of you answering questions and submit it as one file. 
  • PG-rated content and language.

Questions to answer:

Your name (or cosplay name), where you are from and the amount of time you’ve been cosplaying.
- “The first costume I made myself was…” and what year you debuted it.
- “The most recent costume I have made that I am most proud of is…”
- “The difference between my costumes then and my costumes now is…”
- “My advice to anyone who wants to start cosplaying is…”

We would like to limit the video to 15 cosplayers, but if we get more than that, we’ll try our hardest to squeeze you in! Those featured will be decided through first-come, first-serve.

October 25th at noon (Mountain Time - MT) is the deadline for submissions!

We can’t wait to hear your input and hope you’ll join us for the start of our channel! 

We’ve got two entries so far! That leaves 13 open spots left. :D We’d love to hear from you, so please check it out if you’re interested! 

Heya! My friend pastel and I want to do some video projects and would love to feature as many cosplayers as we can.  If you wanna take part, check the video for an example and send us your own!  <3 

These people are awesome and lovely, so if any of my followers are cosplayers, you should totally look into this!

The Internet Slowdown is coming, and it’s going to be huge.

Hey there,

Exciting news! The Internet Slowdown net neutrality protest planned for September 10th is really taking off. This morning, a dozen of the world’s largest websites announced that they’re joining in a big way. Sites you know and love like Etsy, Kickstarter, Wordpress, Vimeo, Mozilla, Namecheap, Foursquare, imgur, and reddit.

Will you join too?

Everyone has a role in the Internet Slowdown. Click here to find out what YOU can do.

Oh, but that’s not all that happened this morning. Just a few hours ago I got a phone call from a number in Washington, DC. The person on the other end tried to ask some questions without identifying themselves, but when I asked outright they told me they were from NCTA — yep, as in the National Cable Television Association, aka Comcast’s lobbying army.

 They wanted to know when we would be announcing the names of the companies participating in the September 10th net neutrality protest. I suggested they take a look at the front page of The Guardian, or at this op-ed by the CEO of Etsy in Wired, and mentioned they may want to check out this TIME Magazine article. Then I hung up.

After the call, I couldn’t stop smiling. I’ve been organizing for many years and one thing I’ve learned is that powerful enemies only start contacting you when they’re scared. If they don’t think you’re being effective, they ignore you.

Friends, we are giving some of the most powerful interests in the world a run for their money. And they have tons of money. We’ve got Comcast & company shaken up and scared. This is our chance to to drive the message home and win this once and for all.

All the tools you need for the battle are here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

If you’ve got a website, blog, or Tumblr run the “slowdown” widget on your site to symbolically show your users a “loading” message and help people understand what the Web could be like without net neutrality. If you don’t have a site, change your profile pic to the “loading” symbol, so that the entire Internet is alive with protest on September 10th, and forward this email to everyone you know to spread the word.

The truth is, unlike Comcast and their cronies, we have nothing to hide. A report from the Sunlight Foundation yesterday showed that 99% of comments the FCC has received are in support of net neutrality. The public agrees, and hell hath no fury like the Internet scorned. As I write this email, I’m feeling more hopeful about our chances of victory in the battle for net neutrality than I have since we started this fight.

Last chance. We need you for the Internet Slowdown on September 10th. Are you in?

We can win this, and when we do, it’s a victory we can put in the history books.

For the Internet,
-Evan Greer at Fight for the Future

P.S. Our friends at Namecheap are really throwing down in the fight for net neutrality. Check out the awesome video they just put up at NetNeutrality.com (nice URL right?), wait til you get to the part where people are riding on toilets chasing wall street bankers up a bike ramp.

P.P.S. There’s still time to get your very own #TeamInternet t-shirt or hoodie. Go here and reserve yours before they’re gone! http://teespring.com/stores/team-internet

if anyone remembers the story that was making rounds a while back about a 19 year old discovering the solution to cleaning up the pacific garbage patch, that project launched a fundraider which now has 7 days to reach it’s goal.

I started this hoping to finish it by the time Rythian finished his Bioshock playthrough, but got kinda hung up on lighting/HOW DO YOU DRAW LIGHTNING. I figured posting it might shame me into finishing it someday.
