HEY LOOK WHAT I'M FINALLY FINISHING!!11 IN NOVEMBER.


There's lololol a post-getting-massively-rained on Jacen and Tenel Ka (we look so much more coherent in the photoshoot pictures, haha) meeting JIM BEAVER OKAY. He is amazing and Natalie is amazing for making me go talk to him and get his autograph - she is also awesome for getting me a hug from Misha Collins since I am a chicken shit. ILU NATALIE. XD

P.S. NATE. WHAT IS THAT EXPRESSION???


This is mostly gonna be photos since my brain is lame and everything always runs together after a week, buhhhh.

Monday, September 5 and Tuesday, September 6 - DAT EMPTY WALKWAY?!?!? Also, Star Wars crack... naturally. )

Next will be the post will all the links to the other recaps in it, along with the tentative 2012 costume lineup, lololol. 287 DAYS, PEOPLE! XDDD
tenel_ka: ([ king - in the future ])
So the rest of Sunday has a billion photos because it was more Star Wars time and Long Walk time and we saw other fun costumes. IT WAS OVER A MONTH AGO ALREADY I'M FORGETTING EVERYTHING. D:


CRAZINESS. Also, Ashley's thing she does with her neck in her Nightsister outfit that creeps me out. EVERY SINGLE TIME. Aaaaaaaand Nate being a bloody boy model?


And for real, I apologize in advance for the absolute incoherency this post will contain. I AM OUT OF IT. :B

Sunday, September 4 - Errrrebody in the room gettin' tipsy. Star Wars, random costumes I loved, The Long Walk, bloody blood, another emo album cover. AAAAND there's the hotel room number, wtf. )

Monday and Tuesday don't have a lot of photos so I'm hoping to get that one up by this weekend! THEN STARTS THE DRAGON*CON 2012 PLANNING OKAY.
tenel_ka: ([ sw - crystal snake! ])
So I decided to split Sunday into two parts. The first part will be the giant EXPANDED UNIVERSE SHOOT OF DOOOOOOOM and the second will be everything else. Since there are a billion photos from each part, I figured this would be an easier way of doing this, haha! AND THIS ISN'T EVEN HALF THE PHOTOS I TOOK FROM THE SHOOT.

It depressed me cause I had all these photo ideas in my head and then when I got to the shoot they all just went DERP and left. Plus, everyone was taking their own photos of single characters and all that jazz while I was running around (in these FRICKIN' BOOTS MY GAWWWD) trying to get photos so I missed a lot of single character shots I wanted to get and stuff. ;-;

This just means, NEXT YEAR. And next year, I will have a costume on that doesn't have crazy boots. XD


LOOK AT LINH'S FACE. EVERYONE IS SERIOUS. NOT LINH. <3 I think here I said, "LINH STOP MAKING THAT FACE~"


Sunday, September 4 - THESE. DAMN. BOOTS. Also, adorable tiny child with a Vader cape on. )

MORE SUNDAY LATER. XD
tenel_ka: ([ sw - just like that ])
Between the 9038490283490824957437 costume things we're trying to get done for Dragon*Con, Nate and I decided we're going to do a project of the photo-ly type (which will get done in... forever from now, most likely :|).

While going through our boxes of costume junk looking for pieces we would need for this year, we cackled at all the Jacen and Tenel Ka costume action spilling from the boxes (not to mention we're both bringing two new costumes each of them-thar-darlings this year). We talked about taking all the costumes (including the new ones and a couple we're planning on putting together) and creating a set of photos that sort of follows the timeline of the two of them -- beginning with a photo of little woodsy Jacen and ending with a photo of stoic bitch Tenel Ka many years later. I won't bore you with the loljuicy (not really) details of all the middle photos - it'll make sense one day when we actually start taking them all. I HOPE. D:

WE GOT THE FIRST ONE TAKEN THOUGH -- and this is where WE NEEEEEEEED YOUR HELPS.

On Saturday, we went to a park nearby and headed up one of the trails, straying off of it (and Nate pushing old spider webs out of the way while I squealed mercilessly and tried to deal with it LIKE A BOSS) just to get to this amazing little grove area to take the first photo in - little nature boy teenage dirtbag Jacen Solo. Nate was a super sport and even took his frickin' shoes off. I was stupid and wore shorts. I have sixteen mosquito bites on my legs.

We also saw a frog.


Nate got so giddy - "OHHHH IT'S A FROG! LOOK. AT. HIM!" -- this is the same park we were walking through last fall when he started telling me about the mating habits of frogs.

Anyways, I snapped as many pictures as I could while feeling sweat drip down my back and swatting bugs away from my pasty legs (uggggh summertime) and hoped we got something passable. COME TO FIND OUT WE MIGHT HAVE.

Two of the photos are under the cut below. Nate said the first one could work cause he's smiling and looking down and being awkward - which definitely works. But the second one got me because the angle makes him look smaller (do you know how hard it is to make a 6'4", 24 year old look like he's a decade younger? IT'S IMPOSSIBLE) -- and that Zoolander expression on his face said EAGER TINY JOKE-TELLING JACEN to me for some reason. I don't know. I like both and we can't decide which one to make the FIRST PHOTO OF THE JACEN/TENEL KA PHOTO PROJECT OF DOOOOOOOM!

KJKSJFKSJ DECISION. I haven't done anything to these pictures except resizing them and knocking the contrast up a bit - so picture them a lot fancier or something lololol okay wat )

WHAT TO DO?

I just rambled I need to go to sleep.

(How out of it I am: Jacen Solo needs a "Honey Badger don't give a shit" shirt. I'm assigning memes to all the Star Wars characters. D:)
tenel_ka: ([ sw - royal pain in the ])
The subject line. Nate said that to me this weekend. I was all, "WHAT? NO."


Tenel Ka Djo Costume - Tempest by ~holler-you-home on deviantART


Some junk from this weekend (since I did the asscape surgery and kind of fixed the purple top). It's not as easy to shove my arm behind my back with those scales on, which is the reason why I'm aiming right side out in pretty much 85% of the shots in this set and the four I picked out for this thing were all that side. XD

Hoping to get all the passable ones onto flickr this weekend, hahah~ then I can move on to other costume projects! Like helping Nate somehow create amphistaffs for his sudden new D*C addition-to-his-lineup he is excited for, which is Traitor!Jacen. Sadly, I don't think I can con him into the skirt/robeskin - he'll probably do the action figure version with the jumpsuit.

Saw Wimpy Kid 2 earlier tonight. I am in love with those books and now the movies too. Rodrick = lololol <3. And I think I'm about to beat Ghost Trick - I will hopefully have that beat by later tonight!

ALSO GONNA BE KIND OF LAZY THIS WEEKEND I AM EXCITE.
tenel_ka: ([ boys - river ])
Okay, after the mega discussion yesterday, it has been narrowed down to three options for This Damn Outfit. As well as a few sets of MAYBE colors. The sleeves are going to be some sort of snakeskinish fabric, I know that much. I'll just sew them as sleeves and maybe add some embellishments onto the ends.

COSTUME OPTIONS:

1.) A gown. Some sort of simple gown with a wide neckline (so the chain can go on the back of the dress) and a floor-length hem.

PROS: It's a gown. I haven't done gowns for her much and it could maybe turn out really awesome, esp. with the snakeskin sleeves.
CONS: I won't get to wear boots and you know I love me some boots. I would also possibly feel a little goofy walking around in a fancy gown holding a lightsaber lolololol. XD

2.) A really fancy long jacket/top thing and leggings. Basically make the top a jacket with snakeskin sleeves that has closures on the front or back and a lowline in the back for the chain. The jacket would reach the floor and possibly appear to be a sort of dress-thing until the kickassing needs to come in. Then the slits in the jacket appear as well as leggings and boots and whatever other crap is hiding and them suddenly QUEEN MOTHER TO WARRIOR QUEEN NOW YOU WILL GET A KICK IN THE FACE.

PROS: It would give me more freedom to Dathomir up her Hapan Queen Motherness. And I am a sucker for long jackets hurrrrrr. I could carry around my lightsaber freely as well, haha~
CONS: I already kind of have an outfit like that in the Tempest cover and the Warrior Queen outfit. Leggings with boots. Although, it's kickassable and functional.

3.) Mix the two up. [livejournal.com profile] queenmidalah mentioned the ao dai in a comment she made yesterday (THANK YOU~), which if applied to this could possibly turn out really awesome. An ao dai is a traditional Vietnamese costume and is a long fancy robe over a pair of pants. So basically, I make a fancy gown and slit it, with leggings and boots under it. Fancy and functional.

PROS: Queen Mother can kick you in the face and still look fancy doing it.
CONS: Not sure how to work the fancy gown top in with the leggings and make them work well enough. MY SKILLS ARE VERY LIMITED. :T


COLOR OPTIONS:

I've settled on some sets of colors here. I've done purple, gray, silver, green, black two times and brown, copper, green and tan two times as well - along with gray, black, blues and silver. They're worked well so I've thrown some of those in the mix (except the purple/green since I've been working on Tempest TK and I'm sick of it, haha~) ...but these are the sets I'm kind of wavering between for this outfit.

NOTE: The Tenel Ka outfit I was originally planning on making and hopefully still am is one inspired by this fanart - so I will already have a brown/green/tan/whitish-silver in the mix. :D

1.) Dark purple, mauve, black, silver accents/jewelry
2.) Chocolate brown, dark orange, cream, copper or gold accents/jewelry
3.) Tidepool blue, navy blue, sort of a dusty teal, bronze accents/jewelry
4.) SOME OTHER COMBO I HAVEN'T THOUGH OF YET D:

SO ANY OTHER INPUT ANYONE WOULD HAVE AGAIN WOULD HELP ME GREATLY~ <3333333

Also, I dug out all the snakeskin-ish material I have from my fabric collection and took pictures of it. I have been staring at it all and wondering if I want to use any of them for this. Or the other TK I'm making for D*C -- or any TK I decide to remake. Haha~

SNAKESKIN AND SUCH FABRICS GALOOOOREEEE oh my god how did i amass so many o_o )

MY BRAIN IS GOING CRAZY THINKING OF THIS Y U DO DISSSSSS XD *shakes fiiiiiiiiist*

AW YES.

tenel_ka: ([ sw - teekay ])


WOOOO! Tenel Ka is on the back cover of Conviction! AND SHE HAS NEW CLOTHES (and looks so angry and purty oh man). You know what this means - I need your helpsssss. XD

Now, I have sort of ideas on all this, but I wanted to get some ideas from you bros as well cause I'm sure mine are somewhat ghetto, lololol.

1.) THE BOTTOM. So we see possible scaleness on the sleeves - which is the whole ARMOR WARRIOR THING so then would the rest of the outfit be warriorish too? Pants and belts and boots and pouches and such? Or is the flowy thing an actual dress instead of a jacket/loose robe? I thought a dress could be pretty but it might look a little goofy with the warrior sleeves...? MAYBE? WHAT IS THE BOTTOM?

2.) THE COLORS. What colors does everyone see in that thing (sleeves, top, chain, etc.) since it's obviously not all red, hahah~ XD

3.) THE SLEEVES. Look too small to be the scales I have lolol. I could make them out of fabric, perhaps? I have to find a good pattern on said fabric though - or maybe paint/sew together different fabrics. OH MAN

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COSTUME OPINIONSHELP, GUYSSSSSSS~ <333333

Oh dear.

Mar. 9th, 2011 11:46 pm
tenel_ka: ([ sn - swan song ])
So I got a new camera last weekend. Then I did lots of homework (with Nate's help - dear Physics, I hate you, that's all). Then we saw [livejournal.com profile] lusa_thul and goofed off. And you know how we roll when we goof off.


HERE IS A CAT.


HERE IS A ME AND THAT ONE DUDE (HE SCURES ME).


HERE IS A [livejournal.com profile] lusa_thul. (P.S. to said [livejournal.com profile] lusa_thul - I am editing the rest of the photos and they should be up on my flickr this weekend. I have been editing them to fix some coloring/light issues. <3)


No really, you know whenever Emily and I get in the same space we always goof off with cameras and costumes and crap. Since I didn't get any shots of that Tenel Ka outfit besides random ones at con after doing those damn scales, I wanted to get a couple this past weekend. Emily offered to take pictures if Nate wanted to throw on a Jacen outfit. He did and we got a couple photos. THEN I LOOKED AT THEM.

Now, me being the tool that I am looked at these pictures and thought of 9234209.8 things I wanted to do to fix this costume. One of the asscapes looks funny (you can't see it in that photo CAUSE IT MADE ME ANGRY), I need to fix some stuff on the sleeves and give them more depth, remake the purple top to better accommodate the scales and make a freaking belt. Maybe a small scale addition too. SO I'LL HAVE THAT DONE BY THE END OF THE MONTH. And then I'll take final THIS SHIT IS FINALLY DONE MY HANDS AREN'T CUT UP FROM SCALES ANYMORE BUT I LOVE THEM celebration pictures and be finished with the 938492084.873 revisions I have done to that costume since however many years ago when I originally made it. XD

THEN we went to the magical park and I got a bunch of shots of Emily in her femme!Who which I love - also, I do not have the patience for that. She knitted that whole scarf, girl, I was like WORK IT (been watching to much RuPaul's Drag Race, sorry bros).

Also at the park, we finally got our first shot for the Centuria Challenge!


Lillian Prune. Psycho bitch? From Game #1 - Laura Bow: The Colonel's Bequest


ONE GAME AND ONE PHOTO DOWN. 99 MORE GAMES/PHOTOS TO GO! For more info on this adventure, check this!
tenel_ka: ([ cosplay - ophelia ])
I have learned three things at this convention.

1.) I start acting like everyone's mother when the con comes around. More on that in recap.

2.) I really want to start taking more/better pictures at cons. Cosplayers, groups, people, everything. Like I see cosplayers and groups of cosplayers and I look at photos people have taken after the con and I just have all these ideas for pictures I could take in my head. This really happened during the 999 shoot and when I saw the Disney costumers (Peter Pan group, Aristocats, Flynn and Rapunzel -- SO MANY IDEAS OH MY GOODNESS D:)

3.) I CANNOT POSE TO SAVE MY LIFE. XD

Besides those three things I've noticed, there's another note I have to make upfront here. I'm horrible at meeting new people. Even if I've talked to them on the internet beforehand. I'm awkward and doofy and mumble and say stupid things - that's just the way I am and I always have been. I mean, the first time I met Nate it was a whole lot of "merrr herp derp i'm heather duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh." And then I stared at the wall behind his head.

But the people I met for the first time this weekend though (looking directly at Katsuya Weller and the magical gang of [livejournal.com profile] leesers/[livejournal.com profile] nekogonya/Mike/Kevin/Tom) were some of the absolute sweetest people I've ever met (not to mention hilarious) and for once I kind of felt like I wasn't out of place/doing something stupid/total social ineptitude ahoy! - so thank you guys. <333


DANCING GIRS!



I... I love these two with all my heart. How do you make Jacen Caedus and Jaina ghetto? LIKE SO. KANYE SHRUG GURL~


MORE UNDER THE CUT!

you were doing ducky lips before all those mybook facespace slags! )

We were discussing another con the other day. Tekkoshocon. It's in Pittsburgh meaning it's right near Valerie and Brian (and they are awesome and already said we could crash there). We would probably go up Thursday night and hit up the con on Friday and then part of Saturday - then we would harass Valerie & Brian the rest of the time. XD

Question is WHO IS GOING TO TEKKOSHOCON? XD (Besides [livejournal.com profile] leesers, since she already said so on FB~ XD)

And if yes, ARE YOU DOING ANY MAGICAL COSTUMES? (I told you magical was the word of the day -- along with darling~)

I'm gonna bring my magical camera and take magical pictures since I didn't take many at Katsu thanks to my missing internal battery. D:

We were discussing bringing along Professor Layton & Luke Triton... or maybe Silent Hill costumes... but we don't know yet. INPUTS? <33333

(The only thing that sucks about con is leaving con and leaving all the fun people until next con. ;____; NOOOO, CON FUUUNNNKKKKK!)
tenel_ka: ([ games - machinarium ])
Slowly but surely getting things done for Katsucon this weekend.

Nate finished his Junpei costume and I've been working like mad on the scales for the new sleeves I'm making for Tempest/Essential Atlas Tenel Ka. There are pictures of both Junpei and scales in the new OMG PROGRESS album on zhobot.net's magical fb page -- HERE IT ISSSS.

Then there's Santa's frickin' boots. Like I said on le twitter, I have been frankensteining these things together like mad. They aren't exactly like his - like he has a set of two strips on top and then a set of two lower down... the base boots I got had strips a certain length apart and then a logo on them that I had to cover - so there's four strips instead of sets of two but at this point I don't care cause I am actually kind of proud of them so far (until I screw them up lololol) and they will work just fine, I hope! BOOOOOOOTS!

I am not looking forward to trying to put those scales into sleevey shapes though. It's like that part in Pee Wee's Big Adventure when there is a fire in the pet store and Pee Wee goes in and saves all the animals and keeps passing by the snakes cause they gross him out. He finally saves them right at the last minute. Those sleeves are my snakes in the pet store. D:

You know, this part!

I always describe things I keep putting off as "IT'S LIKE PEE WEE AND THE SNAKES~"
tenel_ka: ([ cosplay - ophelia ])
So for Katsucon I think I'm bringing four costumes (OH MY GOODNESS WHAT AM I THINKING) - Barbie from Toy Story 3, Tenel Ka from SW:EU, and then Santa and June from 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors.

I have wigs for both Barbie and Santa, but I'm trying to figure out what to do about the hair for June and Tenel Ka. I was planning on getting my hair done before Katsucon (meaning it would be SUPARRRR RED) and then I would have to get a wig for June since her hair is brown. Then I was thinking of all my options and here is my STUPID DILEMMA and the things I have come up with that I can do.

1.) I get my hair done again, RED! like usual. Use my hair for Tenel Ka and get a wig for June.

2.) Get my hair done more of a brownish-red - try to pass it off for both Tenel Ka and June. Even though it would be a little too brown for TK and a little too red for June.

3.) Get my hair down a darkish brown, use it for June and get a wig for Tenel Ka - even though I would have no idea what kind of wig to get for TK. Hahah~ XD I would only be able to use a certain type for Queen Tenel Ka (fancy) since younger TK's hair is more OMG wild -- this is why it's easier to use my regular hair for her since I could style it however (whereas wigs are harder to change for different costumes).

HALP PLZ D: Obviously, 2 would be the cheapest and I love me some cheap, hehehe. BUT I DON'T KNOWWWWWW cause I don't want colors to be distracting from a costumes I've worked hard on. :\ Does that makes and sense? lolol i am a dork.

(I told you it was stupid. XDDD)
tenel_ka: ([ cosplay - hunter ])
So I have a bunch of random photos on my computer from after Dragon*Con and before the Disney World trip. I figured I would dump some here. Hehe.

PICSPAM INCLUDES: photos of Nate goofing off in Jacen and Caedus costumes (from the days I got these shots) - including me goofing off in a Tenel Ka costume as well, Halloween pictures, outside forestish pictures, some crap I made, Nate shutting me in a cop car, the prison... YOU KNOW, THE NORMAL.

Here is some randomness to start you off with... explanation of this one under the cut with the others from that day, hahaha~ XDDD



--- FALL 2010 - SOME STUFF OF THE RANDOM TYPE ) ---


YAY PICSPAM. Now to try to do something productive, lol hurrrrr.
tenel_ka: ([ sw - mace is a tart ])
The last part of the report! :O


(Under this cut: more Expanded Universe stuff that totally devolves into something horrible XD, Celldweller & Blue Stahli are so nice lol, let's hit the roadddddd)


MONDAY & TUESDAY - BRET WAS HERE. )

Of course, my mind has instantly gone to D*C 2011. And also figuring out costumes for it. I'm sure there will be a Star Wars one or two. Then there's the group costume I'll probably be posting about here soon, which [livejournal.com profile] omicron1337 and I have already been discussing (XD) and I know there's a bunch of others I can't remember. WHAT WAS I DOING AGAIN? D:
tenel_ka: ([ sn - swan song ])
SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY! [/monster truck commercial voice]


(Under this cut: Tooling around the Expanded Universe!, I get tipsy off of one drink, adult themes in Star Wars THEY EXIST, CELLLLLLLLLLDWELLLLLLLER!)


SUNDAY - Is he hot? ... Yeah. Hey Nate, do you think he's hot? ... Yes. )

Next will be Monday/Tuesday! Which will include the Tenel Ka/Caedus/Tahiri/Ben crack, AW YEAH. hurhurrrrrr
tenel_ka: ([ sw - fo real zekk ])
And to continue our Dragon*Con 2010 Report of Doom, I bring you Friday!~


(Under this cut: JEDI STRIKE TEAM FORCE BRADY BUNCH GO, Ashley blue me, there's a splicer in the house!, when did Nate get so emo?)


FRIDAY - That was Stan Lee. And your feathers! Do you want to commit suicide now? )

HUZZAH GETTING STUFF DONE
tenel_ka: ([ cosplay - hunter ])
Okay, so I'm throwing myself straight back into everything starting with costumes. With 46 days left till Dragon*Con I figure I should actually get my butt moving when it comes to that stuff, heh. So here are some things for all the homies I am doing costumes with (and who I love <3)~ THESE ARE MY LITTLE MESSAGES TO YOU, FELLOW COSTUME GROUPS.

(ALSO, we welcome anyone into these groups if anybody wants in on these costumes groups!)


_____________________________________


DEATH TROOPERS: I have the back panels for the jumpsuits done. Now we just need to figure out how to attach them and be able to take them off so that [livejournal.com profile] blood_sorbet can continue to use her orange jumpsuit for mini-Tahiri as well. Black safety pins, maybe? Black will match the lettering and our boots.

[livejournal.com profile] prix_etoile, I will be bringing blasters so you can definitely use one for Zahara. Do you want any fake blood on anything? Cause I will most likely be bringing some, like usual. Hehe.

And is Thursday night good for you guys to do this costume? We can always put it on again later in the weekend for a little bit if we wanted to since it's just scrubs/jumpsuits/etc.

_____________________________________


JEDI STRIKE TEAM: So we have Anakin, Jacen, Jaina, Tenel Ka, Tahiri, Eryl and Lomi Plo. We could use (and would adore) any of the following if anyone would like to join!: Alema, Bela, Ganner(!), Jovan, Krasov, Lowbacca, Raynar(!), Tekli, Ulaha or Zekk(!) (Welk would also be welcome, hurrr)~

We are currently trying to figure out where we are on the weapon situation and what we still need -- discussions on all that crap are going on right over here!

And I think we're going for Friday morning/early afternoon with this costume. HOW IS THAT?

_____________________________________


ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT: We're in the middle of making a Franklin puppet, lol. I wish we had a Lucille 2 who could complain about vertigo and Buster and GOB could fight over her "...WITH CLUB SAUCE." D:

So we're absolutely sure we have Maeby, George Michael, GOB, Buster and Lindsay. And then possibly a Rita or a Gangy. Mace also might be Blue Man!Tobias. :3

Would anyone like to jump in the AD group? IT IS AN AMAZING SHOW and we could always use a STEVE HOLT!, Michael, Ice the Bounty Hunter, Her?, George Sr., Oscar, LUCILLLLLEEEEEEE 2! or any other number of crazies that the show has. Hehe.

SATURDAY MORNING/AFTERNOON.

_____________________________________


STAR WARS: EXPANDED UNIVERSE RANDOMNESS: So I actually might be putting a new Tenel Ka together. Whoops. :\

But SUNDAY MORNING (is that good with all you SW peeps?) -- SW:EU JANK. We have a giant, giant list of EU costumes HERE! Who am I missing and what costumes am I missing?

_____________________________________


THE LONG WALK: We always, always, always welcome new Walkers. So if you've read The Long Walk and want in, let me know! You don't need anything special except for the belt/pouch/canteen which is super easy to get (and right now I have an extra belt/pouch thanks to Emily so I can let anyone borrow it). You need a t-shirt and jeans pretty much -- or a jacket or whatever to make your Walker PERSONAL TO YOU (unless you are one of the main guys, then it's a tiny bit more specific). Plus, you get a magical Long Walk number by me and a magical bullet hole done by [livejournal.com profile] see_aphy_be!

Right now for this year we have McVries, Baker, Harkness and Abraham. We would love to see a freakin' Ray Garraty one year or, of course, others such as Olson, Stebbins (parachute pants!), Gribble (blue balls!), Barkovitch, Parker, etc.!

IT'S AN EASY COSTUME YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO ANY OF THE WORK LOL.

This will most likely be Sunday afternoon into the evening, like it has been for three years running, hehe. If you would like in but can't make it until later that evening, NO PROBLEM. We would just love to see more than four/five Walkers, which has been our max. I mean, there's 100 of them in the book.

_____________________________________



And that is that. Making silly lists like this is helping me get my mind off of this crap week.

I need sugar.
tenel_ka: ([ boys - denial waits ])
So remember I said we brought Dragon*Con to [livejournal.com profile] lusa_thul a couple weekends ago since she can't make it this year? Which, you know, actually meant LET'S GEEK AROUND IN STAR WARS COSTUMES AND TALK ABOUT THE CRUXSHADOWS? WELL I HAS PHOTOS NOW, hur hur.

For the YJK outfit, I made a whole new bolero and pair of shorts the night before we went over to Emily's (which is why the ones in these pictures look different than the ones in these pictures - and I'm not sure which colors/set I like better -- the greenish brown or the new reddish ones...) so there's a lot of things I'm gonna fix with them. I've already hemmed the shorts a bit shorter and I'll be attaching the bottom and top layers of the boleros together at some point soon.

BUT THERE WAS MUCH FUN TO BE HAD OUT IN THE HEAT. XD

JACEN SOLO, TENEL KA AND DANNI QUEE WALK INTO A BAR... )

WOOOOOO! Alright, that was exciting. We figure we might take some better shots later in the year when it gets nice again (and I have my YJK outfit fixed and fit to climb trees and roll around in the dirt while wearing, muahaha). We were out in the 90+ degree weather and I got some asinine amount of bug bites (it was 15 or something) but Nate and Emily WERE CLEAR OF ALL BUG NOMS. :(

In closing, I HOPE YOU ENJOYED YOUR MINICON, [livejournal.com profile] lusa_thul AND WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER WHEN YOU RETURN FROM YOUR DISNEY COTTAGE. <3 XD

(P.S. Nate and I went back to that park and explored some more. THERE'S FLIPPING FOUNTAINS DOWN BY THE POND AREA WHICH I DIDN'T EVEN KNOWN EXISTED. I FREAKED OUT WHEN I SAW THEM. WE MUST GO IN THE FALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL~)
tenel_ka: ([ king - sir landon ])
I figured something like this might be of some help to me for the next 70 days, hahaha~ XD

DO THIS CRAP, HEATHER. )


I might end up bringing either my gray jumpsuit or Tempest cover outfit back for other EU pictures on Sunday morning. I never spent enough time in the gray jumpsuit and the Tempest one I just love. So I don't know...

PREFERENCES, EU PEOPLE? HELP PLZZZZZZ~ XD

(aka, I might end up bringing an old TK to try to stop the fact that I want to make a new one, MUAHAHAHH~ or if I get lucky and find everything I need for cheap, maybe I will make the new one. I DON'T KNOW. This is why I need help. D:)

Okay, so you know I don't go to the movies often because people annoy me but last night, Nate and I braved the movie theater to see Toy Story 3. We rewatched the first two over the weekend and fdkljsdkfjksdfj;dkfjasf I will be going again to the magical theater of movies to see it at least once more. TS3 was amazing.

TOY STORY 3 SPOILERS UNDER HEREEEEEEEEEEEE D: )
tenel_ka: ([ games - machinarium ])
Pictures and con report of doooooooom! Like Katsucon, there isn't much actual reporting to do since we all mainly just goofed off and talked and hung out and stuff, BUT THERE ARE PICTURES AND CRACK and a little bit of reporting. I WILL TRY MY BEST.

WARNING: IMAGE HEAVY AND SOME CURSING OR SOMETHING? HUR HUR~ also, crack. there's that too, but that's pretty much a given here. D:

I have never had this much yellow on me before. I have to squint when I look in the mirror. )

In closing, this con has made me absolutely crazy for Star Wars: EU pictures and I will harass every one of you with an EU costume at Dragon*Con this year for a billion pictures. SO MANY IDEAS FOR STRIKE TEAM PICTURESSSSSSS TOOOOOOO. D:
tenel_ka: ([ cosplay - hunter ])
Okay, so it's roughly 100 days till the magical Con of Dragons (errr, Dragon*Con) and I figured I would finalize my costume list so that when I get back from BaltiCon next weekend, I can go right into D*C costumes (as well as maybe a costume or two for the Celebration V Non-Con lolololol ideas <333).

SO HERE BE THE LIST. If you are going and want in on any costume groups or are doing any costumes from these thingies PLEASE PLEASE LET ME KNOW SO I CAN HARASS YOU FOR LOVE/PHOTOS~~ <333 I will most likely be harassing all of you going for that stuff anyways (AND MORE? XD), BUT STILL.

1.) BUSTER BLUTH (Army Version - Arrested Development) - this one is already done and I am super excited for this group. Also, I'm debating on wearing it to the Georgia Aquarium for the D*C Aquarium night just so I can get pictures of BUSTER LOOKING AT SEALS. Also, TOBIAS PLZ. THERE HAS TO BE ONE OUT THERE!~

OTHER DARLINGS: GOB Bluth (and Franklin!) - [livejournal.com profile] draelight, Maeby Fünke (banana stand) - [livejournal.com profile] zoopiglet, George Michael Bluth (banana stand) - [livejournal.com profile] ben_ethus, Lindsay Bluth Fünke (ARE YOU STILL GONNA MAKE THE SLUT SHIRT?

2.) ELAINE MARLEY (The Secret of Monkey Island) - this is the other costume I was debating on wearing to the Aquarium. Cause you know, Guybrush can hold his breath for ten minutes. XD <3

OTHER DARLINGS: Guybrush Threepwood - [livejournal.com profile] draelight
__________________________________________________________
3.) KALE LONGO (Star Wars: Death Troopers) - kfjskdjfkasjdfksfjdskdfj I need to read this book again. AND AGAIN AND AGAIN. Star Wars + Zombies = fangasm. I'm really excited for these and have been fiddling around with the name things for the backs of the jumpsuits.

OTHER DARLINGS: Trig Longo - [livejournal.com profile] blood_sorbet, Dr. Zahara Cody - [livejournal.com profile] prix_etoile & Han Solo (w/ Beanie Chewbacca!) - [livejournal.com profile] draelight
__________________________________________________________
4.) TENEL KA (Star by Star - Jedi Strike Team) - we're not gonna have as many people as CIII, but at this point I'm just excited to do these costumes again. Star by Star broke my heart and also caused me to meet lots of my fandom friends, lololol. SO I HAVE TO SHOW IT MORE LOVE.

OTHER DARLINGS: Eryl Besa - [livejournal.com profile] jill_sparrow, Tahiri Veila - [livejournal.com profile] blood_sorbet, Jaina Solo (I think, I need to bug her and ask her if she's still in XD) - [livejournal.com profile] miss_jaina, Jacen Solo (it was either him or Zekk probably, he's been digging Zekk, lololol <3) - [livejournal.com profile] draelight & possibly Lomi Plo! - [livejournal.com profile] see_aphy_be

P.S. WE STILL NEED TO FIND AN ANAKIN SOLO. I JUST WANT ALL THE SOLO KIDS FOR ONCE, DAMMIT. D:

5.) PETER MCVRIES (Stephen King's The Long Walk) - it will be the fourth year in a row! AND WE COULD ALWAYS USE MORE WALKERS. THERE ARE LIKE 95 TO PICK FROM. COME OOONNNNN~ XDDDD

__________________________________________________________
6.) DROWNING DOOM!OPHELIA (Brütal Legend) - this is gonna be my one big giant THIS WILL WASTE MOST OF MY TIME FOR CREATION BETWEEN NOW AND THEN costume. [livejournal.com profile] ben_ethus kept telling me I needed to play this game and I finally got it off Gamefly and fell in love with it -- and totally in love with Ophelia, lololol. Part that sucks is that I'm not as HOT AND TALL as she is, haha. BUT I WILL FIGURE IT ALL OUT SOMEHOW. I've already started playing with fabric and bodysuits and makeup and all that crap. I'm a little too excited for this thing. D:

OTHER DARLINGS: Grave Digger - [livejournal.com profile] draelight (also [livejournal.com profile] ben_ethus might also be a Grave Digger and we're trying to con [livejournal.com profile] zoopiglet into being a Razor Girl -- even though it's a totally different faction -- she would look AWESOMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. XD)
__________________________________________________________

And then there are all the other possible costumes but I need to talk to other people about them first so we can figure everything out before I finalize ideas lol and these include: Dead!Red Shirt (Star Trek -- need to talk to [livejournal.com profile] see_aphy_be about finding a simple one! XD) & some other Tenel Ka outfit (SW:EU -- I have someone here who is raring to snatch up some orange-ish contacts and be Darth Caedus, plus there was chatter between [livejournal.com profile] blood_sorbet and [livejournal.com profile] precioussonja and myself about EU stuff -- SO WHAT DO YOU SAY, GIRLS? XD)~

All this excitement is making me not think about my back and neck YESSSS. But I still need to schedule physical therapy NOOOOO.
