I’ve been working on my nephew’s costume. He’s really obsessed with the movie Escape from Planet Earth and was asking to be “Kip the alien” I guess it’s the kid in the movie. Since the movie didn’t seem that well known I figured it’d be a good idea to put him in a spaceship so he seems more alien.
I used an inner tube, connected some LEDs and then covered it in shiny silver. After that I sewed the shirt to some black foam then sewed the ring onto that. The graphic was painted on with fabric paint after I chopped the sleeves off the shirt.
It needs a couple more things but he seems excited for it :)
Commissions are CLOSED until I get caught up. I have presents I need to get working on. Stuffed animal/plushie/softies might be added if I can figure out how I want to do them. When I reopen them prices will increase.
Q:Send this to 10 of your favorite blogs, then answer 5 random facts about you!
Aww I’m a favorite :D I am not an interesting enough person for these…UUUHHHHH
1) I watch too much television and too many movies. My netflix is very abused because of it.
2) I gave up on art for a long time until I started playing MMOs. Who knows if I’d be doing any of this had I not played them.
3) I wanted to be a voice actress when I was younger, I stopped wanting to because I realized I have an annoying voice.
4) I have a strangely good memory for useless information, doesn’t really do me any good but it’s a neat parlor trick (when am I in any parlors?)
5) I currently have about 500 hours on Monster Hunter 3U…that’s not really interesting but I warned you I’m boring.
I made sketches of friends’/followers’ ffxi/ffxiv characters while away, for funsies, the ones I could remember anyhow. I added a few more once home. If yours isn’t on there, let me know and I’ll sketch one for you lol, if you want.
Traditional drawing feels foreign to me. Most of these are pretty awful, haha. The urge to cut and move things was unbearable. XD
(Also Runa, I thought you had an elf but couldn’t remember, so if you don’t you can pretend to for today.)
I love waking up to Salacia art, this is too much to handle. Everyone looks wonderful and different. I can’t get over all the cuteness.
Never stop the paper and pencil thing or anything else you do Sala!
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 3 years since FFXIV was released. I never expected it to have such a big impact in my life, and to have become so heavily invested in it. Yet 3 years later, I’m still here.
I’ve met wondeful people because of this game, and it’s giving me things I wouldn’t have otherwise. Like Zanel, my dead husbando, my twinnie
And many awesome friends. I don’t post much in the tag but if I’m known for anything it’s probably the person who never shuts up about the White Raven.
I’ve never held a contest like this but I wanted to celebrate 14 the only way I know, by giving stuff away! Originally I was going to held it on the first anniversary of End of an Era, but due to Haku offering some awesome stuff I’ve decided to host it sooner! Plus, 4 days ago or so 14 was released so that counts too :’D
Also because I forgot to do something for Nael’s death anniversary so I’m including it. And it was also supposed to be a VIIth legion memorial thing on November 11th.
Main prize● A Before Meteor soundtrack! New and shiny still in it’s original packaging. (Which I assume it had the Dalamud minion code inside.)
● A Tonberry King stamp made by Haku (with a green ink pad)
● A digital drawing of your character in RSE with a minion of your choice by Haku.
● A digital drawing of your character by Moo.
● **A copy of Haku’s FFXIV sketchbook fanbook featuring a drawing of your character inside! (If you haven’t seen some of the previews you can see them here!)
3 people are random will receive a set of “minion and mob” stickers by Haku.
How to enter
All you have to do is like or reblog this post. One like/reblog per person so you get 2 chances to win! Since my notes are numbered, I will pick the winner using a random number generator based on the number of notes.
Winner will be announced October 2nd at midnight central time. If I don’t hear from you within 24 hours, I will select another person.
If you win, please be ready with references of your character! And your address, can’t forget that. ^^;
I will ship everywhere ^ v ^
However, due to working with Haku, there will be two packages. One from me with the OST and stamp, and one from Haku with the fan artbook. Please give some time for the artists to finish the drawings.
** Haku’s fanbook is due to release on October 21st, as a result it will be shipped at the end of October.
As a result, there will be a slight delayed in shipping them. At the latest, you can expect the prizes to arrive in late October. Please look forward to it!
Thank you very much to Haku and Moo for proving prizes for this contest! As I said, this is my first time holding something like this and I’ve put a lot of work into it. I don’t interact much in the tags but I wanted to do something to celebrate this game I love so much.
Fall gave me a heads up about this, I’m glad people like it but at the same time…link to me or something. If Gearbox can do it so can you! The risks of fanart, but oh well.
I hate when I get stuck in that gear (first pic), we call it “toaster armor”. The worst part of it, you cannot take the headgear off. All the cutscene reactions are just a closeup of that stupid helmet. I’m not in it currently but there’s another set coming up /tears.
I got a pudgy puk and infant imp WOO. Cid has changed to a lala but I dunno if he’s staying one, cause he can’t run into my screenshots as a lala hahaha. I found my ONLY screenshot for pre-ARR, my computer was a piece of crap before. Looook ewww.
We finally did try Stone Vigil and timed out at Isgebind at 20%. The first boss gave us so much trouble, it blew. I dislike that dungeons are mandatory :/ maybe I should just stop being a tank.
