Makeup
If you're interested in how I put on my makeup you can see a video of me doing it on youtube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXvSaXPsoFg

It's not the best job, but it's the first makeup video I've ever done. And it was done spur of the moment, so I didn't plan it out very well. When I do more I'd like to do them with better lighting. And at a better angle too!

Costume Conundrum
Trying to figure out how to make a harness rig that with bear the weight of a shell made out of paper mache/wire and a quite a few metres worth of fabric. I'm trying to avoid using metal in the frame as it would probably be too heavy, and I don't have the tools to work metal.

I'm thinking I might raid the PVC pipe section of Bunnings and Meccano my self up a rig, and sew it into a basic synthetic fabric harness that I can easily clip on and off.

Here's a pic of the guy I'm making:



I have no issue with making the head, hands, and decorative costume itself, but when it comes to engineering something that can bear weight, I kind of fail. Will need to look into this pronto.

Hah
Misogynists really don't seem to like Quentin Taratino's "Death Proof". I can understand people critisising the technicalities of the film, writing and what not...

Spoilers aheadCollapse )

Just griping
Did anyone else find the "blunter" parts of this post on the Swancon list frustrating?

http://community.livejournal.com/swancon/142269.html

As someone who was on a Swancon committee and ran the artshow (in the same year) I do not understand this threatening attitude they have with the artshow - and the organisation of things in general.

A paying customer *can* and should complain if they don't enjoy the con, even if they did nothing to help. Sure, if they had some ideas that would of helped the committee it would have been nice for them to volunteer. This doesn't mean the committee can turn around and say "Oh you don't like it? It's your fault because you didn't help us!" Way to make the con goer a scapegoat.

If there is no artshow because no one volunteered to run it, I will be kinda ticked off, because that is the main thing I enjoy at Swancon. It's how I contribute to the freaking scifi/spec lit community. I basically feel a little emotionally blackmailed here to do something I really don't have the time or the energy for.

EDIT: Just wanted to make clear to everyone that, as stated above, as I have been on a committee before I do realise that it's a bloody tough job and they need the community's help to make Swancon a better con. I was just mainly freaking out at their choice of words, what it implied and most of all - the risk that the Artshow would not be held as usual.

It's my favourite part of Swancon. I get to show off what I've done through out the year, talk to other artists and see their work. It always a wonderful experience.

I apologise if anyone reads my post and gets offended!

Man, those EvonyCollapse ) banner ads are getting more explicit every time I see them! The one that has a picture of a queen type character is gross. Her tits are hyoooge and her cleavage looks like Tori Spelling's!

Fever dreams
Had the most f*cked up dream last night. It was in high detail, I could hear, smell and feel everything vividly.

In the first segment of the dream I was at my parents house asleep in my old room I shared with Nancy. In the dream I was woken up by the blood curdling screams of a young woman. I could hear she was running down the street out the front in bare feet because they were making a sharp slapping noise on the pavement as she ran from house to house banging on the front doors. She was screaming "Please help! Oh God they're going to kill me! Please someone help!" When she came to our front door for some reason no one answered, and I felt so tired I couldn't move, but I wanted to help her so badly. So she left our front door and continued on. Then I heard a car pull up near by. Then she screamed louder than before, a horrible scream. Then she was quiet.

The next morning I walked out side and there were police cars sectioning off my neighbour's front drive way. They said a young girl was murdered last night, stabbed repeatedly. I told them I heard her scream but I didn't do anything. Then I thought "I should have done something, this is so wrong, I'm going to fix it."

Suddenly I was back in bed and it was night again, and I could hear her running down the street again, screaming for help. I got out of bed immediately and woke Nancy up. We went out the front and we saw a young girl running to our house. She looked only about eighteen or something. Blonde, a bit scruffy. She was only wearing shorts and a shirt and was bare foot. Her face was drenched in tears and she looked terrified. We shouted "Come here! Quickly come inside!" So she ran inside saying "Thank you! Thank you! They're going to kill me."

I shut the door behind her and we all stood in the dark hall way with the light off. I forgot to turn the porch light off again for some reason. We heard a car pull out the front of our house and I looked outside through a window. There was a dark sports car parked out the front on our verge, about five people were getting out of it and walking towards our house. The girl started freaking out and we tried to keep her quiet. The bunch of guys that got out of the car knocked on our door repeatedly and I could see them through the peep hole in the front door because the porch light was still on. Then I realised that they knew I was behind the door when they looked closer at the peephole. I got scared and said "Shit, we have to hide. This door's safe... Shit the back door!" We ran through the house to the back door but they were already at it and opening it. We turned and ran for the bedrooms, losing the girl in the process.

My Mum, Dad, Nancy, Scotty, and I were hiding in my parents bedroom and were trying to call the police via 000. By the time we reached the 000 operator the guys were already in the bedroom and were dragging us out. We were all screaming and panicking. They took us into the kitchen and knelt us down execution style. They questioned us repeatedly about the girl, asking us where she was. Nancy and I had lost her so we didn't know. They didn't believe us. So they started killing my family by slitting their throats. First my Mum, then my Dad, then Scotty, Nancy was next. Then I was the only one left. I was so angry and scared that I started mouthing off at them. So they said they were going to have fun with me, that they were going to torture me. So, when they were distracted for a second I ran to the kitchen counter and pulled out a large sharp knife and stabbed my self in the gut. I felt everything, I felt it cut me, I felt blood welling inside me - out of me.

I realised I hadn't nicked my artery so I tried again, this time I held the knife at an upward angle and force it through my diaphragm, under my ribs and into my heart. I had a hard time doing it, it wasn't quick. I felt things resisting then popping as I pushed the blade through my insides. When the tip of the blade pierced my heart I felt everything start to go. The room span and blood welled up and out of me. I stumbled forward to the bastards that killed my family and spat blood in their direction. Then I fell face forward onto the ground. Everything went black.

Then I woke up.

Finished Fallen Angel 1
I am making with the art mo-fos! Knocked it out. And from the quality of the piece you can probably tell I rushed it a bit. Not as bloody and gooey as I'd like, figured they might take my stuff down if it's too violent. I'm also of the opinion that because I focused on human anatomy a bit too much I made the work a bit static. I wanted it to be a lot more stylised that this. But I've got some more "Fallen Angels" on the way. It's a series! The other ones are going to be way more bizarre and confrontational - not deliberately so, it's just how I see them. I can't help it if my art weirds people out!

Golden Girls
I know some people don't like it, but I do. Golden Girls is funny. I thought it was just one of those things that I thought was funny because I was a kid. Then I started watching some of it on Youtube with Nancy, and it's pretty darn funny. Bea Arthur is such a good comedic actress.

I got bored and did a image manipulation.




The only reason Sophia is Kim Cattrall, is because Kim Cattrall is ancient. When she opens her legs it's like the opening of an ancient tomb, stale old air gasps out in a cloud of dust, and the faces of nazis melt.

Hahahahaha


Hahahahahahah haha haha ha... *Wipes tear from eye*

But seriously, that's kinda fucked up. I like how a good portion of the comments on the youtube page for this are pro gay, or at least point out the ridiculousness of this ad. Especially the fact that it uses cute widdle babies to push it's message forward. And another thing, I really don't think the "How dare these gay people take away MY RIGHT to take away THEIR RIGHTS!" approach is going to work. You'd have to be reeeaaally stupid for that to be a convincing arguement.

Preview of latest artwork
Latest bit of digital art I've been working on. Will be done with it very soon. It's called "Fallen Angel" and it's of an angel that's cut it's own wings off.




Will put up finished image in my redbubble store and deviantart gallery once done. It will be on sale from both sites. I was thinking once I've finished it I'll probably want to get it printed on a canvas.

When I get a house I'm going to have *so* much art to hang up. Lol.

New Artwork
Three pieces I did for the Swancon artshow and one I did for the last Borderlands (don't look for it, it didn't get in in time), are now up on my rebubble and deviantart sites. Swancon artshow has lifted it's game. I'm going to have to put in even more of an effort to keep up with other artistic swanconners. They're just so damn good. It's come to my attention that my art is too dark for people to actually want to buy. That's cool. I like to keep it anyway.

Just watched Shi Shi lick the entire top surface of a CD. She used to lick the top of the CRT monitor of our old computer too. She just likes licking random surfaces. Wtf?

In Memorium
I will miss you Andy Hallett! You were talented and awesome. You played my favourite character in Angel. I think I'll watch an Angel episode with you in it tonight, while toasting your greatness with a beverage.

Watchmen
Watchmen was awesome. I really happy with the casting, the acting, and any changes they made were done skillfully and for the right reasons. So happy with it.
