MetroCon 2014 - The kid’s post
M. loved all the princess and Disney cosplayers. A. was excited to see the fellow Assassins, including one that slipped him some gold coins as a welcome to the Brotherhood.
Sadly, I don’t know who these fantastic cosplayers are, but I’ll tag them if anyone knows.

Like you don’t understand okay I was trapped for an hour on the second floor of the con with hundreds of children and their parents because everyone thought I was Elsa
Am I the only one who thinks she looks like the khaleesi like The mother of dragons?

Magic Bands arrived and so did the Captain America decal I ordered for mine. Guess who’s going to Disney?
Operation: Recover the Ugly Ass Sofa has hit a few snags.
I have successfully removed the cushion cover, torn it apart and washed the foam.
Phase two was to remove the sofa fashion fabric, but I’m not sure I can do that without tearing all the padding out. Ugh. I need to rethink this and probably drape and pattern over the darned thing.
Stupid ugly sofa. It’s a shame it has nice lines and is comfortable.
Not strictly The Flash related, but how amazing does Colton Haynes look in his Arsenal costume?!
I’m torn be between wow that’s kind of hot and what the actual fuck is this train wreck
I’m climbing aboard the hot train. Fucking hot dude in red leather. YES PLEASE.
Costumes designers, laces and buckles don’t make everything better.
It’s a functionality thing. Laces and buckles can be damn hot, when they make sense. Buckles for arrow holsters make sense, SHINY buckles on a stealth costume? Not so much. The laces don’t make sense at all since they are likely to snag on every damn thing brushing over them. Contrasting panels would work, but that would have looked too much like Hawkeye’s new costume.
While I don’t like to ask for help, there’s no question things have gotten tight for Sam and I since I was diagnosed with Lymphoma in March. I was determined to push it through until we had some more bad news with Sam being laid off from his job. He’s focused on getting something new but in the…
I’m passing the word along for a friend of mine. Kellen is a sweetheart. For the last couple years I’ve known her as a hell of a hard worker, going back to school while working a regular job, volunteering when she can at our local guild and working as the track Director for the American Sci-Fi and Fantasy track at DragonCon.
This has been a hard year for her, dealing with diagnosis and then cancer treatments. She continues to work and they’ve been okay up until a week ago when her husband was laid off. You all know the job market out there.
No one is expecting anything, but I thought I would pass the word along for her.
Crows are scary
- use tools
- Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
- Have huge brains for birds
- like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
- They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
- they are scary smart at solving puzzles
- some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
- they can remember faces
- SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT. They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows. Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag. But the nice guys with masks they left alone. THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight. THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
- They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.
i love crows so much
crows are amazing
My favorite legend is that crows are the souls of the dead
crows are the coolest shit
Yeah but have you seen this
this post can’t get any better
Two years ago I fed one mated pair of crows. He must have passed the word because next nesting season I open up my door and this was awaiting me. This doesn’t even capture the additional 20 or so in the trees and upper power lines.
BTW, cat chow and peanuts are great crow food. It makes for strong shells.
I’ve put all of the fabric painting tutorials into one big photo post.
Includes silk painting with resist (Elven Banner), free-hand painting on stretch fabrics (Jareth from Labyrinth), fake embroidery with puffy paint (Peter of Narnia), graphite transfer paper with fabric paint pens (Tali from Mass Effect) and regular Tulip fabric paint (TARDIS lab coat).
Maybe this format is better?
