Cosplay update!! I’ve finished gluing together the elements of the skirt. I’m really happy with the varied looks of the skulls (which was totally on purpose and not a testament to my inability to use power tools). The paldrons I had a friend help me make out of worbla. For the rivets on the armor i have been cutting and hot gluing those little jerks into shape from a foam bedroll from the dollar store. Work has just begun on the battle axe!! here’s hoping it all comes together in the last few weeks!

Astrid update! I’m finishing up the ‘metal’ details on the skirt. I dry brushed black paint onto the silver skulls to hopefully recreate a pitted metal look. To make the spikes I glued together foam cones and cut small discs out of the thicker foam for the base. I’m currently working on the same dry brush technique to get the cool metal look for the spikes.
…and yes I know they all look like Hershey’s kisses. Now I really want chocolate :/

Getting the ball *pun* rolling on my Astrid cosplay. I found some faux suede perfect for part of the skirt and used foam for the base of the shape. I then carved the skulls out of styrofoam balls which was a hilarious process. The carnage looked like it had snowed inside and I believe I’ve inhaled an unhealthy amount of styrofoam. All I need now is to get the silver paint which for some reason is the only colour we don’t have at home :S

HAPPY CANADA DAY! For Canada Day, read this short Superhero Girl comic I made last year for the True Patriot anthology! It was based on a true experience I had when someone asked me “what makes Superhero Girl a Canadian superhero?” and I was like uhhhhh?

The League of Villainous Canadian Stereotypes was my boyfriend Tim’s idea. He is a great idea man! 

Enjoy my Canadian comic and have a great Canada Day! I am celebrating by working a lot. ;)

I lost it at Farley Mowat oh my gosh!

At least I’m still digging…

Well we’ve plum run out of archaeology to do for the summer so I’ve found myself without a day job. “Why haven’t you been blogging” you may ask. Well now that I’m home I get to be the caretaker of my mothers 176538394846+ gardens on the property. Also I may be a bit of a lazy butt when it comes to this thing. Luckily I still have my job at the drive-in so I can at least afford my student loans payments… So I’ve got that going for me. Expect some fun cosplay updates in the future as soon as I get my materials. Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend :D
